KINGLAKE CEMETERY PLAN ABANDONED Better uses possible, meeting told Deviation Rd

Blackwood La. Frank Thomson Reserve

COMMENT

WhittleseaKinglake Rd

People Power vs Council

KINGLAKE CENTRAL ■ Kinglake residents voiced their loud opposition to a planning decision that might allow a cemetery and crematorium on precious land overlooking Melbourne, at last week’s Council meeting. Resident Jemima Richards reminded Murrindindi Shire Councillors that they had been elected on a platform of doing things differently and better. “You asked for a chance. We want to give it to you,” she said. Council had one opportunity to reject the proposal, and to instead look at better use of the land, and the economic development or tourism opportunities. Ms Richards said she was amazed that Council’s Planning and Economic Development staff had no communication between departments about the proposal. Long-time resident John Griffiths said the ‘C59’ planning amendment for a cemetery and crematorium had “come out of the blue” last year. The land had been “hijacked”, he said. The property was originally reserved for a Kinglake National Park Office and depot, which was no longer required by the State Government. The State Government since allocated the land to the Kinglake Ranges Cemetery Trust. Murrindindi Shire CEO Margaret Abbey last year advertised the proposal in the Mountain Monthly magazine. “We will ensure the community is kept informed as this matter progresses,” Ms Abbey said in a press statement last year. Mr Griffiths said Ms Abbey published the wrong submission date. Ms Richards said that the Council had a problem if it thought that an advertisment (in Mountain Monthly) was public consultation. Ms Richards said there was a danger that Kinglake was defined by outsiders as only being the ‘Black Saturday’ area. There were other economic development and tourism opportunities possible for this land. “We have an opportunity to do it better.” Nearby resident, Black Saturday survivor Anne Burgess, said that she had dread and fear about a cemetery being allowed so close to her home.

■ Murrindindi Shire Council last week backed away from supporting a Planning Scheme amendment to allow a cemetery on the scenic Ganglehoff Hill land at Kinglake. The public gallery at the Council’s meeting held at Yea last Wednesday was packed with residents, mostly from Kinglake, mostly against the proposal. The proposal to allow the Murrindindi Planning Scheme amendment for land at 265 Whittlesea-Kinglake Rd (Blackwood Lane) had been put forward by the Kinglake Ranges Cemetery Trust, working together with the Department of Health and Human Services. Resident Paul Rogers said there had been a lack of consultation by the Council, and his large number of friends and acquaintances saw the proposal as an “outrage”. Mr Rogers, who has lived in the area for 26 years, and who had an association with Kinglake for 18 years before that, said that Council had the power to “knock out” the amendment. Resident Nigel Head said that the proposal should be abandoned. The land was a gift to the Kinglake community. There had been no consultation, no meetings, no advertising, he said. “The Kinglake Ranges Cemetery Trust: did they consult? The answer is no. “Is a cemetery really required?” Mr Head said that Council’s performance did not pass the community involvement test. A cemetery would destroy the local environment. “Make the land available for the living,” he said, arguing that Black Saturday victims needed to be available to repair. Alex Pottage argued for the proposal. She said the Blackwood Lane site was close to two local churches. She said that the Trust’s proposal had been communicated in two issues of Mountain Monthly and on

The proposal was abandoned.

■ Murrindindi Shire Council learned a tough lesson about community consultation at its monthly meeting held at Yea last Wednesday (May 24). A packed public gallery, mostly Kinglake residents, stared down Councillors on a controversial application to allow a cemetery on the picturesque Ganglehoff Hill, that overlooks Melbourne. Council, faced with staunch opposition, blinked first. The meeting heard it admitted that Murrindindi Shire CEO Margaret Abbey made a serious error in advertising a one-month consultation process for the planning application made by the Kinglake Ranges Cemetery Trust. The consultation period, to change the zoning of the Crown land, needed to be two months, the Council meeting was told. The Council had only advertised the proposed change in the Mountain Monthly newsletter. Speaker, followed by speaker, followed by speaker, argued that there was enormous public opposition to allowing the plan at ‘Blackwood Lane’ (265 Whittlesea-Kinglake Rd). Proper consultation had not been made with the Kinglake community, it was repeatedly argued by residents. The proposal put forward by the Kinglake Ranges Cemetery Trust had the support of the Department of Health and Human Services. The only speakers arguing for the proposal at last week’s meeting were Trust member Alex Pottage, and Maureen Jackson, of the planning company engaged by the Trust. In the end, Murrindindi Councillors voted against the Planning Scheme amendment, which also proposed to remove an Environmental Significance Overlay from the land. By now, the Council should realise that it needs to communicate more, on a weekly basis, with the residents of the Kinglake-Pheasant CreekToolangi-Kinglake West area. The only weekly newspaper circulating in a meaningful way in all those areas is The Local Paper. Kimglake’s message to the Council was extremely clear.

● Jemima Richards ■ Kinglake activist had praise for Mayor Cr Charlie Bisset, local Councillor Leigh Dunscombe, and their five colleagues after last week’s Council meeting at Yea. “I would like you to know how thankful I am that all the councillors showed a true example of "walking the talk" at last night's council meeting, Ms Richards said. “It has given everyone a glimpse of what really feels like is possible for the first time in a long time .... with common sense and with the solidarity you all displayed last night. “There were quite a number of shocked faces last night and we toasted you all at the Yea pub last night in celebrating a true and just outcome. “I need to add how well Leigh Dunscombe spoke and represented Kinglake. “You have all obviously put alot of time and effort into this process and have been the voice of reason for the future, and for that I thank you,” Ms Richards said.

■ Murrindindi Council last week voted to support a stance urging a phasing out of natural timber harvesting in the Shire. Meanwhile, bushfires and more discoveries of Leadbeater's possum are likely to cut native forest wood supply to Gippsland timber mills by another 25 to 35 per cent over the next 20 years, according to a major report published in the Gippsland Times.

Kinglake depot

■ Kinglake’s bottle dump is “hopefully new acceptable” to users and nearby residents, yesterday’s meeting of Yea Council was told. The operators of the yard, 1st Kinglake Scout Group, were answering criticism of the depot heard at the April meeting of Council.

Whittlesea CFA

■ Mr and Mrs Doug Lade of Highlands were amongst Yea and Kinglake people to attend the official opening of the Whittlesea Fire Station on Sunday, May 24 (1987). Mr Lade attended in his capacity as a Board member representing the Rural Board of the CFA.

Reply to come ■ The Minister for Local Government, Mr Jim Simonds, says he is waiting for replies from Yea’s neighbouring Shires, before he writes a letter to the local Council. Yea Council wrote last month to enquire what progress had been made with its request to annexe portions of Toolangi, Kinglake and the Flowerdale Valley.

Sad passing

Children and parents attended in costume with some children having made hats for the day during playgroup. Australia's Biggest Morning Tea is held annually to raise funds for the Cancer Council and cancer research. The Kinglake Ranges Neighbourhood House, Murrindindi Shire and Kinglake Library organised Kinglake's Biggest Morning Tea while 'Balloonatic' Bill entertained children with balloon-making skills and storytelling. Helen Simons of the Kinglake Pub supplied a variety of teapot leaf teas and commented that the day was "a really friendly group of women and a positive community experience …a very positive thing and a true reflection of Kinglake's community spirit." Kinglake's Biggest Morning Teawas supported by the Kinglake CWA, Murrindindi Shire, Kinglake Ranges Neighbourhood House, Bendigo Bank (Kinglake), Flying Tarts and the Kinglake Pub. ■ Journalist Ashley Geelan lost his mother Cheryl Anne Geelan 1951-2008 to bowel cancer on March 4, 2008.

Pay by card

■ Residents no longer have to rely on cash when visiting our Resource Recovery Centres. Murrindindi Shire Council's Infrastructure and Waste Portfolio Cr Eric Lording said the Centres now have EFTPOS facilities to make it easier for people to offload their waste. "In the past, we have had a few technical limitations on our ability to have EFTPOS facilities at our RRCs which has been frustrating for everyone,” Cr Lording said. "Many people prefer to use cards rather than cash, so it's great that we now have these facilities so people have the choice." Cr Lording said the machines were introduced a fortnight ago in a soft launch to allow time to iron out any glitches.

Hospital Board member resigned over merger row ■ Jennifer Keast, who quit from the Yea Hospital Board earlier this year, said she made it quite clear that her resignation was over the proposed merger with Seymour Health. Ms Keast, a prominent and well respected member of the Yea community, said that she voiced her objections to writing, when submitting her resignation letter to State Health Minister, Jill Hennessy. Ms Keast said a copy of the resignation letter to Yea Hospital Board President Kristin Michaels. Ms Michaels this month told The Local Paper that she doubted that Ms Keast’s resignation was about the proposed merger, but was for “personal reasons”. Ms Keast told The Local Paper that she did not want the community to think that her resignation was connected with the death of her father, Russell Purvis. Ms Michaels admitted in her 50minute phone interview with The Local Paper that there had been “robust discussion” between Board members about the proposed merger with Seymour Health that could happen as early as September. The two organisations are conducting a ‘due diligence’ period, expected to be only nine weeks. This follows the

conclusion of the management services contract with G V Health of Shepparton. GV Health currently provides ‘corporate services’ such as the provision of a Chief Executive Officer, payroll, financial control and human resources management. The Yea Hospital Board last year engaged a consultant who identified five options for the future running of the local facility. Ms Keast told The Local Paper that the Yea Hospital is one of the wealthiest and healthiest country hospitals in Victoria. She acknowledged that whilst some merged services were probably inevitable, she believed that there was undue rush in the merger process announced this month. Ms Michaels is an ambitious health sector professional. She is CEO of the Society of Hospital Pharmacists, has just joined the Board of Fintech, and has been a prominent member of public health bodies in Melbourne’s outer-east. Ms Keast questioned statements that Yea Hospital might receive podiatry and dental services under the merger. It already has a podiatry service, it is claimed. Yea Hospital will represent about a quarter share in the` new organisation.

Business sector fails to back wasp initiative ■ Murrindindi Shire’s business community is failing to embrace the Council’s European Wasp “initiative”, Cr Rebecca Bowles told last week’s meeting. “The European Wasp is being wholly embraced by everyone but the business community,” Cr Bowles said, in her Natural Environment and Climate Change Portfolio. “I am receiving many emails covering this issue and I am passing them onto the General Manager Infrastructure Development Services to add to the growing file,” Cr Bowles said. Council’s initiative, in response to a motion by Cr Eric

● Cr Bec Bowles

Lording and Cr Leigh Dunscombe, was to delay any spending until the new financial year. Crs Lording and Dunscombe originally asked for up to $100,000 to be allocated to eradicate the wasps, which had have a severely begative effect on local business and tourism. Cr Bowles said the emails “may assist in our need for assistance from the Agriculture Minister, but we need some letters from horticulturalists in our region to aid us”. Cr Bowles also reported on matters involving the Green Army, roadside weeds, and the Healthy Hectares program.

Shire Briefs Yea Pool concern

■ AYea citizen’s concern that the Yea Swimming Pool had irregular leaking of “toxic water” into the surrounding water table has been addressed by Murrindindi Shire Council. The resident claimed a height of 25mm of water was being leaked each week, and that Council needed to stop the pool leaks, and hold contractors accountable. Margaret Abbey, Shire CEO, told last Wednesday’s Council meeting that “the pool is retaining water in accordance with its design requirement and appropriate standards. “Any water loss can be attributed to the normal operation of a pool such as evaporation and maintenance,” Ms Abbey said.

$529,520 contract

■ Metro Urban Management Pty Ltd last week won a contract with Murrindindi Shire Council for street sweeping services. Considered in a segment of the Council meeting closed to the public, the contact is worth $529,520 over a five-year period. The resolution was moved by Cr Eric Lording, seconded by Cr Margaret Rae. The company has been appointed for an initial term of three years, and subject to satisfactory performance the Shire CEO is authorised to grant two additional one-year extensions.

Busy library

■ Alexandra Library has had a busy month with a full program of events, Deputy Mayor Cr Sandice McAulay told last week’s Council meeting held at Yea. The Autumn Festival in Yea inclued activities with the theme of ‘Parenting of Resilience’ with clinical psychologist Andrew Fuller. Cr McAulay said fun was had with ‘Family Music Making’ with John Madin, and Radio Days with the Jumping Jazz Swing Band at the Alexandra Shire Hall. Cr McAulay thanked the Alexandra Friends of the Library.

Early childhood

■ The Integrated Early Years Steering Group will be re-established in Murrindindi Shire, CEO Margaret Abbey told last week’s Shire meeting, in answer to a question from Veronica Hendrickson. Ms Hendrickson asked what was seen as the most important step in the community’s goal for an Early Childhood Development Precinct. Ms Abbey said the group will bring key stakeholders together to determine future requirements and progress planning for a potential integrated early years service. “Ultimately external funding would need to be sourced in order for the project to proceed,” Ms Abbey said.

Visit to Alexandra

■ The Board of Goulburn River Valley Tourism were hosted at a function held at the Alexandra chamber of Murrindindi Shire Council, Cr Jackie Ashe told last week’s public meeting. Cr Ashe, speaking for the Economic Development portfolio that she leads, said that she attended the annual Yarra Ranges Tourism summit, the Lake Eildon Tourism steering committee meeting, and a meeting for ‘People Power 100% Renewable’ involving TRYYackandandah and Seymour Hydro.

Not in attendance

■ The Alexandra Standard and Yea Chronicle newspapers are the major beneficiaries of Murrindindi Council’s paid advertising. No competitive tender process has been in place over the past four years from Murrindindi Council’s executive, staff or Councillors, to offer a transparent process to show why one newspaper company is given most of the Council’s advertising spend. The Standard/Chronicle failed to have a journalist attend last week’s Council meeting. Only The Local Paper was in attendance.

Murrindindi Mayor took trip to SA winery region ■ A trip to South Australia’s winery area by Mayor Cr Charlie Bissett - presumably at ratepayers’ expense - came under scrutiny at last week Murrindindi Council meeting. AYea resident submitted a query to ‘question time’ at last Wednesday’s Shire meeting held at Yea. The questioner asked of Cr Bisset’s attendance at the Cittaslow conference in the Alexandrina Shire, on the picturesque Fleurieu Peninsula, south ofAdelaide. “What us the benefit to residents and what costs were borne by Council and when

● Cr Charlie Bisset, Mayor

will she provide her report?” CEO Margaret Abbey responded that the Mayor gives a report at each meeting, and all Councillor costs were included in the Quarterly Financial Report. Later in the meeting, Cr Bisset said that she discussed development and tourism whilst in Alexandrina Shire, spending time with their Mayor. Of Cittaslow, Cr Bissett said: “We dicussed how it has benefitted their areas and in particuloar economic developemnt and tourism.” ■ Cittaslow means ‘slow town’.

● Yea is a Cittaslow town. Mayor Cr Charlie Bissett told last week’s Council meeting that is the theme is about visitors stopping and enjoying towns and cities. “The international movementy has 200 towns in over 30 countries. This was a good opportunity to speak to other countries and other Mayors.”

Go-ahead for Kinglake West service station ■ The possibility of jobs for local young people at a new Kinglake West service station took Cr Eric Lording’s vote over the line, he told last week’s Murrindindi Shire meeting. Cr Lording said that local youth were travelling to places as far away as Dixons Creek and Yarra Glen to secure parttime work. He said the service station had 50:50 support in the Kinglake Ranges area, but the possibility of more local jobs being created and won his vote. Earlier in the meeting, local Kinglake region resident Bev Johns gave an impassioned plea for the service station planning permit not to go ahead. There were better sites for such as development, she said. David Vorchheimer spoke in support of the planning permit being issued. A Council officer’s report recommended that the Council adopt a Planning Scheme amendment to allow the service station, and for a recommendation to go to the Minister for Planning. The plan allows for a service station, shop, postal agency, and food and drink premises. Ms Johns told the meeting that the postal service had already moved from Kinglake West to Pheasant Creek. The application for the site, by G and A. Bonnadio, first went before the Council in 2015. The combined permit and amendment was exhibited in August-September last year.

Some 12 submissions were received, the Council meeting was told. Five private submissions raised objections to the proposal. The proposal was refrred to an independent panel for consideration. The panel considered that the poposal complies with the direction of the Kinglake Ranges, Flowerdale and Toolangi Plan and Design Framework. “The Planning Scheme includes strong policy support for the re-establishment of uses and community infrastructure in the bushfires in and around the townships,” said the report to Council. “Other key issues of service station requirements, bushfire risk and water, neighbourhood character, traffic, amenity, signage, flora and fauna impacts, waterwayt impact and cultural heritage are all met by the proposal or additional reports prepared to support the proposal,” Councillors were advised. Cr Margaret Rae and Cr Sandice McAulay, representatives for the Redgate (Alexandra) and Cathedral (Taggerty) wards, moved and seconded the motion to allow the Kinglake West proposal proceed. The proposed service station is to be situated at 1274 Whittlesea-Kinglake Rd, Kinglake West. It is on the eastern side of the major road. Opponents have identified that the land is on an important local water course.

There were generous donations of venue, catering expertise, wine and food.

MC for the night David Anderson, Chair of the Y Water Centre Association, said, "This was a wonderful community night. Many of the guests, several who are relatively new to Yea and the surrounding district, thoroughly enjoyed the night and now have a better appreciation of the Y Water Centre, Yea Wetlands and the volunteer effort that has, and continues to be invested in it."

YEA FOOTBALL MATCH REPORTS SENIORS Yea 14.7 (91) defeated Thornton-Eildon 9.9 (63) Yea has snapped a four game losing streak with a spirited 28-point win over ThorntonEildon, finishing the match full of running at the Recreation Reserve. It was a tight contest for the first three quarters, with the lead changing several times but neither side ever managing to put together a buffer of more than two goals. This is all changed in the final term as the home team's spread finally overwhelmed the visitors, who managed just a solitary behind to the Tigers’ 4.5. Paddy Rattray looked on right from the first bounce and was unstoppable up forward, benefiting from some excellent delivery up the ground to finish with seven majors. Lachie Kelly played his best game for the club and Cameron Evans used the ball beautifully. Dan O'Dwyer started like a house on fire and dominated all day in defence, constantly taking intercept marks and driving Yea out of the back half. Aidan McSpeerin did a great job on Boners playmaker Tom Keating, while Harrison Jarvie and Riley Aldous both got on top in the middle of the ground. After leading by less than a goal at quarter and half-time, Thornton drew level at the final change to set up a thrilling last term. However, an emphasis on handball receives and moving the ball quickly into attack paid dividends for the hosts. It was an impressive effort considering the number of players missing from the side, including Xavier O'Dwyer, Indi Kaak, Hayden Witton, David Webb, Trent McMahon and Zac Pell. Yea will look to make it two on the trot when they travel to Alexandra this weekend. Yea: Goalkickers: P. Rattray 7, S. Pearce 2, P. Evans 2, L. Kelly, H. Jarvie, E. Neilson Best Players: P.

RESERVES

Yea 7.6 (48) defeated Thornton-Eildon 4.5 (29) Yea is one game clear in the top five following an important 19-point victory over Thornton-Eildon in an intriguing contest at home. After a couple of heavy losses to Belgrave and Yarra Glen, the Tigers have benefited from some new personnel to win consecutive matches for the first time this season, but not before the Boners gave them a bit of a scare. Yea burst out of the blocks with a three goal opening term, dominating play and holding the visitors scoreless. However, Thornton hit back in the second, booting three goals one to trail by just nine points at the major break. The home side stood up in the premiership quarter to take a vital 19-point buffer into the last change before holding on to record their third win of the season. Tyrone Lang was outstanding in the midfield and went to another level in the last term, Cameron Ryan pressed his case for a senior return with a strong performance and Ben Broadway was superb on debut, finishing with two majors. Jack Sundblom (two goals) did a power of the work wherever he went, while Andrew Butterworth continued his excellent run of form and Jaryed Garlick racked up possessions at will. Like the senior side, the reserves have adapted their style of play and are spreading the ball more often than early in the season, taking advantage of the wide expanses of the Recreation Reserve. The Tigers will aim to rack up three wins in

Thornton-Eildon side. Without Megan Leatham available, coach Cindy Newcomen slotted into the side to which she knows so well and was able to rotate her eight fellow players well throughout the game. The game was quite even in the first quarter with the Tigers just having the edge to take an eight- goal lead into the first break. Their game continually improved over the remaining three quarters, their third quarter a dominant shooting display with 16 goals and their last quarter a dominant defensive display, restricting Thornton to just four goals for the quarter, the highlight a brilliant rejection from Sophie Stares. All in all, it was a thoroughly consistent four quarter performance that saw the Yea girls run out 30 goal winners. Well done girls. Yea will look to make it three wins on the trot next week against Alexandra, a game we are all confident that they can win. Currently sitting in sixth position, if other results also go their way, the girls could be in the top five in the next week or two. They are really starting to come together as a team, finding their ideal combinations with players starting to really own their positions. Belgrave is the clear ladder leaders in the AGrade competition and they look like they will be hard to beat, however the Yea side is more than capable of beating every other side in the competition. Good luck girls. Yea 55 def Thornton Eildon 25 Goals: M. Sundblom 36, N. Watts 16, C. Spagnolo 3 Best: B. O'Dwyer, N. Watts, M. Sundblom Award: Sophie Stares - Cindy Hayes

3rd Quarter. Even in the bitter cold all the girls played a great game. Holly's (WD) quick thinking passing the ball through the middle, Ruby's (GD) good goal defences stopped the goal for Seymour and forced the ball down to the Tigers end for another goal. Yea 39 to Seymour 27. 4th Quarter. The Tigers were still going strong in the last quarter. All the girls were playing a great team game with a lot of name calling and great passing skills. The girls had a great win and well done to all. Final Score: Yea 51 def Seymour 34 Awards: Royal Mail - Jordyn Beattie. Tiger Bucks - Abby Christie - Sandra Zipsin

YEA NETBALL MATCH REPORTS D-GRADE

■ A dominant first quarter set up a huge win over Thornton in the D-Grade match. The Tigers shot 15 goals to 1 in the first 10 minutes, a winning lead that Thornton were never going to be able to make up. The lead also made it comfortable for coach Deb to use her bench well, rotating players continually for the remainder of the match. Thornton improved each quarter but the Tigers were just too good, continuing on to win by 28 goals and score their biggest win for the season so far. Other than a draw with Belgrave the D-Grade team is yet to lose a game and the win on the weekend rewarded them top position on the ladder after the round of matches were complete. Yea is now two points clear of both Yarra Glen and Alexandra. The Tigers travel to Alexandra next weekend and if they can win again, will secure top position and take a strong hold on the competition. Yea 39 def Thornton Eildon 11 Goals: A. Smith-Jones 19, A.

C-GRADE

■ Thorton Eildon is not fielding a C-Grade side this season, so the C-Grade girls had yet another week off, not having played since Yarra Glen on May 6. Over the past two weeks four of the young C- Grade players have all played in the B-Grade games and acquitted themselves fabulously, a credit to their coach Lauren Hearn, their older teammates, but more importantly themselves, well done girls. C-Grade remains undefeated in the competition, their closest match to date against Belgrave, where they really dug in their heels and produced an excellent two-goal win. Next week’s match against Alexandra will be a first versus second encounter and the Tiger girls will be eager to get back on court and knock off the Rebels. Go get 'em girls.

B-GRADE

■ B-Grade scored another big win over Thornton-Eildon, thumping the Boners 80-19. Yea played a steady and consistent four quarters, scoring 18, 20, 19 and 23 at each quarter. Well done to the shooters for their great accuracy, but also to the other five players in the non-shooting positions that work so hard in defence and attack to supply the goal shooters the ball. Molly, Jordan and Emily were all elevated to B-Grade this week and they were fantastic, each of them playing their respective position strongly and with great confidence. Well done girls, super proud of you. B-Grade sits in fourth position, six points from ladder leaders Belgrave, and two points shy of next weeks opponent Alexandra. Both teams will be hungry for victory to cement the higher position on the ladder. Yea should have a full team to rotate next week and are ready for the challenge.

Jordyn O presented well around the ring for our shooters. 23 - 26 It was goal for goal this at the start of the quarter. Jordan W presented herself well with great leads through out the game. Teagan and Ebony defended nicely together making Seymour shooters work for every ball but once they got it they didn't miss resulting in Seymour taking the win.

■ The Tigers battled the Lions on Sunday with two evenly matched teams. Winter was just around the corner and the afternoon gave a real display of what to expect in the coming months. Yea was first to attack but inaccurate kicking to goal would again haunt the Tigers until a long shot at goal by Firmin sailed through for the only goal of the quarter. It was shaping up as a day for the defenders on both teams to earn their places as every forward entry was met with a wall of backmen ready to return the ball to attack.Quarter- time: Yea 1.3 (9) to Seymour 0.3 (3). The second quarter started better for Yea with a strong mark to Turvey who goaled ,then soon after found McMaster who chipped neatly to Beattie for another. Again it was the backs on both teams who were on top, Gilbee, Beattie, Wilsmore aided by J. Aldous and Muller stopped many Seymour attacks.Half-time: Yea 3.5 (23) to Seymour 0.3 (3). The second half became a real struggle with rain and wind making life difficult for all players, Seymour scoring the only goal in the half. Both teams had plenty of forward entries, but high kicks to the Tigers forwards made their job a lot harder than it should have. Final score Yea 3.9 (27) to Seymour 1.6 (12). Goals: Firmin,Turvey and Beattie 1 each. Better players: Beattie, Turvey, Gilbee,Charles Z, Harry and Muller. - Jack McMaster

Alex was only able to add one goal (Ben Cooper) against the breeze. Coach Sam Kidd stressed the importance of attacking on the left side coming in with the wind in the third quarter but Kinglake using the conditions and the ground well were able to match Alex and leave them trailing by 17 points at the last change. With five goals to two (Steve Steiner) in the last quarter Kinglake finished too strongly for a disappointing Alexandra who seem to have a dislike for the Kinglake ground and it seems to effect the way we play even when the surface is as good as it was last Saturday. Ryley Norris played his best game this season whilst Ben Cooper and Stephen Steiner were hard at most clearances and in defence Conor Heaslip and Will Goonan were consistent, Alex 7.11 - 53 lost to Kinglake 13.13 - 91.

Congratulations to former Alex reserves coach and player Trevor Biffin who last week umpired his 200th Yarra Valley game. Despite "words of encouragement" from mates Frog, Westy, Duck and others ‘Biffo’ as he is commonly known at Alex must still be umpiring well as he is still doing first division games. Also, congratulations to Ryan and Brooke Carter on the safe arrival of Hannah Grace during the week. ★ NETBALLAWARDS A-Grade lost 38 - 40: Corner Hotel $20 meal - Caitlin Haggis, Hoova's @ Mt Pleasant $20 Meal - Ebonnie Twining; B-Grade won 53 - 27: Corner Hotel $20 meal - Emma Kidd, Hoova's @ Mt Pleasant $20 meal - Olivia Twining; C-Grade won 38 - 32: Corner Hotel $20 meal - Kylie Cairns, Essence Coffee Lounge $10 meal - Kristy Warren-Smith; D-Grade won 23 - 18: Corner Hotel $20 meal - Cass Read, Essence Coffee Lounge $10 meal - Shannon Prendeville. ★ CLUB NOTES Last Thursday's Rebel Raffles are sponsored by Holmesglen @ Eildon and Mt.

Warrick was a deceptively quick player with good skills and played on the wing in the above game and his two goals led the way as Alexandra came back from six goals down at half-time to run over Shepparton East at Benalla. The Club extends to Trish and family, Geoff and June, Fiona and Geoff our sincere condolences. This coming Saturday the Rebels return to Rebel Park and host Yea for two games of foot-

■ After last week’s epic battle the Seymour Lions walked into hungry Tigers den as the pack hunted every kick and opened with a four goal straight first quarter. Chayne Klinge took a strong mark as he took a huge hit in the second with Dominik ‘The Dominator’ Ciantar getting a run in the forward pocket showing his versatility at both ends of the ground. When Rhys Harding slotted a great goal you could see the Tigers licking their chops. 7.1 (43) at half-time with the Lions yet to trouble the scorers saw the Tigers go for the kill in the third. A strong half-back line kept pushing the ball forward but a stella rperformance from new cub Brodie Davey led the way to a convincing win for the ferocious yellow-and-black.

KINGLAKE FOOTBALL NETBALL REPORTS SENIORS

■ Following its A-Grade netball loss Alexandra opened the Seniors footy by kicking the first score of the seniors in the opening minutes and kicking the opening goal of each quarter, Alexandra could not continually penetrate their forward 50, losing to Kinglake by 38 points. The first quarter saw Kinglake laying 11 tackles with 14 centre clearances to just three from Alexandra. leaving Kinglake with a quarter time margin of just nine points, Kinglake 4.1 (25) to Alexandra 2.4 (16). Despite Kinglake having only 11 inside 50s to Alexandra's 12 during the opening quarter the scoreboard didn't reflect such with Kinglake's Zac White then kicking a Lakers goal just as the siren sounded. Kinglake playing coach Brad Wilkinson described Kinglake's first quarter effort as "We got right on top. Fantastic that quarter …that's what happens when we stay switched on … talking to one another and staying focused. We're cutting them off and we're getting scoring shots from it. Keep on top of that contested ball guys.” Alexandra co-coach's Sam Kidd and Scott Rowan asked Alexandra players to "stop just stop watching them (Kinglake) run off with the ball … stop just watching it happen and do something about it ". "We've got to work harder and stand together harder." After their quarter-time rev up it was Alexandra which came out firing to quickly put the first goal on the board before Kinglake would later break away to an 18-point lead midway through the second quarter. Despite centre clearances being equal at four each, Kinglake would manage 15 inside 50s to just two from Alexandra to see Kinglake 20 points up at half time. Kinglake 6.7 (43) to Alexandra 3.5 (23). Alexandra again opened scoring to reduce the margin to just 14 points whilst Kinglake doubled Alexandra's centre clearances, six to three with Kinglake have 13 inside 50 metres

■ The AFL Yarra Ranges League Round 6 of the 2017 season last Saturday saw the Rebels on the road again for the second week in succession, traveling to Kinglake for two games of football and four games of netball. The weather was fine, the ground in good condition but a strong north easterly wind favored the Club rooms end. ★ RESERVES The Reserves had eight changes to the team of last week and kicked with the aid of the strong wind and kicked five first quarter goals, three of which came from the boot of Captain Jedd Hamill who marked strongly. Whilst the forwards virtually set up the win in the first, the defence led by Jack Elkington played their part in the second quarter restricting the home side to only two goals although Alex had difficulty kicking in from behinds. Alex extended their lead in the third quarter despite their inaccuracy and although narrowly outscored in the last went on to a 37 point win, 12.8 (80) to 5.13 (43). Awards: Caltex $25 fuel card - Jedd Hamill, Alex Sportspower $20 award - Tim Fielden, Hoova's @ Mt.Pleasant $20 meal - Jack Elkington, Corner Hotel $20 meal - Tom Halligan, Corner Hotel 5 pots - Max Church. ★ SENIORS The Seniors have a 13 - 5 winning record against the Lakers although Kinglake have had the edge over the Rebels recently, winning the last four games between the two Clubs. Coaches Sam Kidd and Scott Rowan made three changes with Jacob Brereton, Rhys Steward and Ben Woollard coming in to replace the injured Luke Heard, Scott Heveren and Chris Mullins. Alex began with the wind and attacked early for little result until a kick off his shin in the goal square brought up the first goal to Zach Heaslip who later misjudged the wind at his second attempt before Kinglake ran the ball the length of the ground to goal. Jacob Brereton marked but he also missed to the right side as Alex missed further opportunities as they played into the home side's hands, attacking down the wrong side of the ground. Ryley Norris who had started well kicked Alexandra's second goal but Kinglake kicked the next three goals as they seemed more settled. The Alex defence knew they needed to play well to keep their team in the game and this they did, restricting the home side to two goals but
