Pathology service halt

From Our Files - 30 Years Ago Tuesday, June 16, 1987

$50,000 offered ● Alexandra District Hospital ■ Clinical Labs plan to cease offering pathology services at the Alexandra District Hospital. Debbie Rogers, CEO of Alexandra District Health has released a statement: "The main focus for Alexandra District Health is to continue to safely provide all of our current services to the community. "We are investigating the terms of the contract we currently have with Australian Clinical Labs to provide pathology services from the hospital.”

● A temperature of zero did not deter Glenburn CFA volunteers collecting for their Brigade at the Glenburn Roadhouse over the Queen’s Birthday Holiday weekend. When Long Shots called in on Saturday morning, the local collectors were Terry Mason, Lorelei Mason and Kathie Brown.

Long Shots

Cars go missing ■ Long Shots hears that there have been a number of car thefts in the Yea area. Farmers need to be on the alert for machinery going missing from their own properties. Some villains have fitted machinery with computer chips that alert thieves to the location of equipment when farmers go to lunch or finish their work day.

■ A posthumous Queen’s Birthday Honour was paid to the late Rex Hamilton Tateof Alexandra on Monday. Rex was named as a recipient of an Order of Australia recognition for his community work.

Wide smiles

Bye for Yea side

■ Foggy roads are difficult enough to navigate in winter. The Long Shots jalopy was overtaken on double lines on the Kangaroo GroundYarra Glen Rd, at Christmas Hills, on Saturday. The errant driver’s St Christopher’s medallion was working overtime.

■ Saturday proved lousy for Murrindindi’s local footy teams. Alexandra lost to Yarra Glen at home; Yea went down to their visitors, Yarra Junction; Kinglake were disappointed on their visit to Belgrave; and Thornton-Eildon was defeated by Seville. Yea has a bye this Saturday (June 17)

Editor’s Diary

● This photo of the Kinglake West garage in the 1960s was sent to the ‘Lost Kinglake’ page on Facebook by Doreen Nichols.

■ The centre-of-theroad wire separators on the Melba Hwy, near Webbwares Rd, and on the Goulburn Valley Hwy between Yea and Molesworth, proved to be a hit over the Queen’s Birthday Holiday weekend. There was evidence of vehicles hitting the road safety barriers on both major highways last weekend.

■ Yea Shire placed an ad in The Age offering $50,000 plus car for its new Chief Executive Officer/Shire Secretary, 30 years ago. Cr Dougal Drysdale had previously argued at the Council meeting, not to advertise the sum: “If you’re going to mention $50,000, that’s going to be what he wants.” “This is farcical,” sad Cr Lyn Gunter said the $46,000-$50,000 salary range was public knowledge after being printed in the local paper. “They might not read The Yea Chronicle,” said Cr Ian Sharp. The applicant had tp be told the truth, said Acting Shire Secretary Nick Zandbergs. Debate over the CEO’s appointment went on to almost midnight at a special Council meeting of which no public notice was given. The senior job appointment was advertised as a line ad in The Age. We noted that an ad for a Community Bus Driver at the City of Mordialloc was twice the size.

End of the line ■ Yea’s tourist railway project to Tallarook would not go ahead, State Transport Minister Tom Roper announced in 1987. Tallarook-YeaTourist Railway Preservation Society President Noel Smyth said his organisation was “astonished but not surprised” at Mr Roper’s comments. He said his Society had put up with eight years of frustration.

Les Hall to lead ■ Office bearers for the 1987-8 year of the Rotary Club of Yea were announced, with Les Hall to become President. Other officers included: Gary Fitzgerald, PresidentElect; Tim Dale, Treasurer; Ric Long, Secretary; David Evans, Ray Watson, Graeme Broadbent, Peter Hauser, Directors.

Rex ‘Buddy’ Smith ■ We reported on the passing of Mr Rex Keith ‘Buddy’ Smith at age 70. He moved to Yea at an early age and was connected with the A.H. Smith aerated water business and billiard room. He attended Yea High School, joined the Tramways Board, bought the Amble Inn Cafe, then joined the family cordial business, later forming his cigarette distribution business. His local interests included the Yea Rowing Club, Yea golf Club, Yea Lions Club (Charter Member and President), Yea Bowls Club and Yea Football. He was a Yea Shire Councillor for six years

Basser not selling ■ Local medico Dr Philip Basser denied the suggestion of Shire President Cr David Lawson that he was selling his medical practice. Dr Basser told the newspaper that his High St practice had not been sold and was not for sale. Drs Charles Hosking and Dorothy Paterson said they were not going to continue their practice after June 30, 1987. “What’s wrong with Yea? Is it sick?” asked Cr Ian Sharp. “Perhaps we’re not sick enough,” replied Cr Lawson.

Guest speaker ■ Red Scott, Director of the research arm of RMIT, Technisearch, was guest speaker at the Rotary Club of Yea meeting. He had been a leading industrialist, specialising in chemical production and marketing.

Lanyon tops golf ■ Alan Lanyon won the Yea Golf Club championship with his 73-70-80-223 score in 1987. Peter Christie was runner-up with 80-75-76-234.

‘$24.7 mil. reserve’ questioned Healy back in the Chamber

● Chris Healy: returned to Murrindindi Shire table ■ Chris Healy - the Murrindindi Shire former Councillor soon to face five charges relating to alleged misuse of position fronted the Council table last Wednesday (June 7) night. Mr Healy, who served as Eildon Ward Councillor but did not re-stand at last October’s local government elections, made a five-minute submission to Councillors at a special meeting. The 45-minute meeting was called by Council to discuss its Draft Council Plan and Draft Budget, and allowed submitters to speak directly to Councillors about their concerns. Mr Healy was served with papers earlier this year relating to the five charges alleging misuse of position. The Local Government Investigations and Compliance Inspectorate alleges that as a former councillor, Mr Healy attempted to gain an advantage on five separate occasions by making improper use of information acquired while a councillor in written or oral submissions regarding Murrindindi Shire’s proposed rating strategy. The matters have been adjourned to Mansfield Court, to be heard on Wednesday, July 5. “The adjournment is to allow time for Mr Healy's lawyer, Greg George of Tehan George & Co., to familiarise himself with the brief of evidence,” Steve Pogonowski, Senior Communications Adviser of the Local Government Investigations and Compliance Inspectorate, told The Local Paper. “The Inspectorate won't be providing any further comment as the matter is still before the courts,” Mr Pogonowski said. Mr Healy used his five minutes to remind Councillors that the Budget document belonged to them, not the Chief Executive Officer and her staff. “Ownership” of the Budget rested with the Councillors, as elected representatives of the community, Mr Healy said. It was not the Council’s responsibility to build up reserves. Reserves had grown from $3.4 million before the Black Saturday fires, Mr Healy claimed.

■ Murrindindi Council’s financial reserves would reach a staggering $24.7 million in the 2017-18 year, former Councillor Chris Healy claimed last Wednesday (June 7). “This extra has come out of the ratepayers’ pocket,” Mr Healy said, comparing a reserve of $3.4 million before the Black Saturday fires in 2009. A great deal had been said about Murrindindi Council losing its rate base after the 2009 fires, but in fact rate collection had only dropped by 1 per cent in the next year, he said. This was more than made up by grants and other finance from the Victorian State Government, Mr Healy said. Funding since had more than made up over the years. Mr Healy, in an submission restricted by Mayor Cr Charlie Bisset to five minutes, said it was not Council’s role to build up financial reserves to such an extent. There was a variance between the amounts of cash and ‘cash equivalents’ stated in the Council’s draft budget, Mr Healy claimed. He gave examples of previous financial figures. “A huge amount of money has accrued.” He said a $9 million reserves amount mentioned in the Council’s Plan was actually $22.8 million. Mr Healy questioned if money from unpaid projects over the years had been transferred to reserves. Mike Dalmau, President of Murrindindi Inc., called on the Council to be open and engaging with the local business community. He did not believe this had been the case in previous years, and he congratulated Council on its new approach. Accompanied by Murrindindi Inc. Vice-President Don Knight, Mr Dalmau said that if Murrindindi Shire was to grow, people would only come if there was jobs. He said it was much easier to have 10 local businesses each add one job, rather than try to attract one new business that would offer 10 jobs. He gave the example of a bright outlook with a $20 million golf course project being commenced in the Shire. Mr Dalmau said there was a clash of two cultures: one culture was that of bureaucratic organisations that had a focus on conformity with legislation; the other culture came from private enterprise that took calculated risks and made things happen. In the past, Government and Council had dictated to businesses. Council had to realise that more businesses meant more rates. Councillors should be mindful that they were not setting up Economic Development and Tourism department staff for failure, by underresourcing them. Murrindindi Inc’s submission to Council was that the parties work co-operatively to make the the community a more thriving place. Cr Bec Bowles asked Mr Dalmau to elaborate on what he meant by by giving appropriate resources to staff. Mr Dalmau said it took time for Council Economic Development staff to build rapport and relationships. Murrindindi Inc could access funding, and it was important to work co-operatively with Council.

■ The late great Editor of The Age, Graham Perkin, reminded journalists that it was not their role to be the unpaid publicists of avenues of government. Perkin’s words, uttered in the 1970s, are a caution for local newspapers not to mindlessly reprint Council media releases, without question or analysis (or without payment for the space!). Murrindindi Shire Council has a challenge to communicate its messages, more clearly, more widely. There is no doubt that the Council has some talented spin doctors on its payroll. The almostweekly press statements spew out, but usually only get unedited traction in the smaller-circulation paid newspapers and on the Council website. Council’s current media strategy of restricting its media message of paid advertisements to the cover-priced newspapers (with their websites hidden behind paywalls) does not reach more than 60 per cent of the Murrindindi Shire population. That type of secrecy disrespects the majority of Murrindindi Shire ratepayers and residents. The strategy is a failure. A number of speakers addressed the communication topic at last Wednesday’s special meeting of Council held at the Alexandra chamber. No local online news service was there. The Local Paper DID attend. Prominent local business man, Mike Dalmau, President of Murrindindi Inc. (accompanied by Vice-President Don Knight) made the point to Councillors of the need to work co-operatively. John Griffiths, long-time resident of Kinglake, said that the Council needed to take notice of what residents were saying. Council is putting much store into its ‘Have Your Say’ survey conducted earlier this year. “Have Your Say’ reached only 11 per cent of the population. On the other hand, more people signed petitions calling for administrators to be appointed to Murrindindi , Mr Griffiths said. Cr Jackie Ashe said there were better ways for Council to communicate and provide a ‘snapshot’ of its financial position. Murrindindi Council has an opportunity - and a duty - to communicate more clearly and widely with its people.

What The Papers Say $1.5 million loss

■ Whittlesea Council is losing $1.5 million a year running the Growling Frog Golf Course — and will consider other “options” for it. City transport and presentation director Nick Mann said in an email that the council was undertaking a detailed assessment of all aspects of the Graham Marsh-designed course. “This assessment is weighing up the cost to council of running the course against the community benefit derived from the course,” Mr Mann said. - Whittlesea Leader

Mentoring bus

■ Small business operators in the area will be able to access free mentoring, support and government business services when the Small Business Bus visits later this month. The bus will be in Nagambie on June 21 and in Seymour on June 22, with small business mentoring specialists on hand to offer advice in marketing, finance, human resources and sales. - Seymour Telegraph

Call to listen

■ Mansfield residents are counting on Mansfield Shire councillors taking notice of the record number of submissions to its 201718 draft budget and making necessary changes. Council is facing a $700,000 shortfall in its asset maintenance budget and has thrown out to the public, through its draft budget and council plan, a list of cuts and income options to be made. Also within the draft budget is listed two lots of council owned land that will be sold – one the former saleyards site at the western entrance to town, and the other some 14ha at Lakins Rd. - Mansfield Courier

Asylum seekers

■ “Recently a house has been generously made available for the purpose of accommodating a family of asylum seekers. “Contact has been made with the Asylum Seeker Program of UnitingCare to investigate how this offer could be made practical. “One of the essential requirements will be to have some kind of community support. We will arrange a community meeting soon. “Meanwhile we are keen to hear of anyone who would like to be part of a support group to administer the project and a convenient time for a meeting. “Even if you can’t be part of an actual group, what kind of support could you and your family give? Please contact Judy or Stuart Reid 5796 9358.” - Granite News

Fined $20,000

■ An excavator operator who didn’t follow building permit conditions and caused significant damage to a neighbour’s property has been convicted at Heidelberg Magistrates’ Court. The City of Whittlesea’s Municipal Building Surveyor took the excavator operator to court for failing to undertake site excavation in accordance with the building permit and approved plans. Damage to the neighbouring property included a collapsed retaining wall and the operator was fined $20,000 and ordered to pay Council costs, in excess of $11,000. - City of Whittlesea

Guy set to fight

■ Victorian Opposition Leader Matthew Guy and Steph Ryan (MLA, Euroa) spoke with CFA volunteers at the Creightons Creek Hall last week about the State Government’s proposed changes to the organisation. Those who attended the meeting voiced their concerns over the Andrews Government’s proposal to make the CFA a volunteer-only organisation, and create an entirely separate entity Fire Rescue Victoria, comprising the MFB and paid CFA staff. - Euroa Gazette

80 Years Ago

Time to attack capeweed ■ Capeweed is currently at ‘rosette’ stage, and now is the time to attack, according to Murrindindi Shire Council. Cr Rebecca Bowles, Council’s Natural Environment and Climate Change portfolio spokeswoman, says that whether residents are in residential areas, or on farms, capeweed is a problem to everyone. Capeweed grows rapidly in warmer temperatures and outcompetes desirable plants such as pasture grasses or clover or lawn seed. “Capeweed is spread through soil movement, attached to vehicles and machinery, carried by birds and animals or could be introduced on site through fodder,” Cr Bowles said. “Flowering and seeding in late winter-spring, each plant can produce up to 4300 seeds which can remain viable in the soil for several years. “The best treatment time is generally between April and July, when rosettes form, before it flowers in Spring. “If it’s in your garden on a residential lot, capeweed can be hand-pulled, but make sure


Alex. Golf Club ■ Diggers' Day 1937, with a gocd swing and plenty of rhythm, went off very well and all who participated enjoyed themselves. A very good spirit prevailed. There were some nice trophies donated and all money collected was given to the Widows' and Orphans' Fund. Mr. Jones (the secretary of the Yea Diggers) won the Rookies event and the travelling brush out fit, and much amusement was caused when he came, hat in hand, to receive the trophy for he has only a few hairs left above his ears. Mr. Stan Mackrell presented the trophies, and afterwards thanked all those present and those who assisted to make the day a success.

Tonsils removed you remove the fleshy tap root. Alternatively, a small area could be continually mowed at a height that takes out any emerging flowers,” Cr Bowles said. “For larger areas such as pastures, spot spraying may be appropriate, or you can turn the soil over to compost the weed before it can flower. “If you are removing the weed whether by poisoning, hand pulling, or mechanically, then some reseeding of the site should be considered as part of your management plan to re-

duce the opportunity for the weeds to re-establish”, said Cr Bowles. Cr Bowles said there are also some chemical restrictions within the Goulburn Broken Catchment area and so you should consult an agronomist or rural merchandise store for the appropriate herbicide for your situation. “Always make sure you use any chemicals in line with the manufacturer’s labeling,” Cr Bowles said.. ■ For further information, call Council on 5772 0333.

Micro ‘news war’ in the Kinglake Ranges ■ A journalism student is about to take on the 36-year-old Mountain Monthly at Kinglake. Founded in 1981, Mountain Monthly has branded itself in recent years as the Ranges News. Ashley Geelan, 39, who describes himself as “Kinglake Ranges only journalist” says he will be starting an “around the clock” news service from July 1. He is using the name kinglakeranges “Kinglake Ranges News™ is a trademark of Geelan Media,” he says on Facebook. A search of the Trade Mark register operated by IPAustralia fails to show any

registration of any trade marks relating to Kinglake Ranges News or Geelan Media. The Australian Securities and Investments Commission, as at Monday (June 12), did not have current registrations for either Kinglake Ranges News or Geelan Media. Mr Geelan has confirmed that he is seeking paid advertising at his news service, to give himself an income. Mr Geelan says he recently worked briefly with Fairfax Media while its journalists were on strike. ■ Geelan has been a voluntary non-paid news contributor to The Local Paper.

Battle for eyes and ears on the hill

■ Mountain Monthly started as a volunteer organisation in 1981. Pages were assembled on a kitchen table, and the monthly printing was collated each month by pupils at local schools. ■ Mountain Monthly was a Yea Shire ‘Citizen of the Year’. ■ Printing of Mountain Monthly is now done at Paramount Press Pty Ltd of Shepparton. The artwork is assembled by the respected Ann Friedel Publishing firm of Alexandra. ■ The Kinglake Ranges News name has been seen before: it was run as an online news service by Cris Ruhr (a one-time Murrindindi Shire Councillor) after the 2009 fires. ■ Ashley Geelan says his media enterprise, Geelan Media, was established in 1988. Geelan was born in 1978; he was aged 10 in 1988. ■ Mountain Monthly’s Facebook page has 1200 ‘likes’. Geelan Media has 64 ‘likes’. ■ Ashley Geelan, an amateur ‘ham’ radio enthusiast, was in the headlines in 2004 when his house was said to be raided in relation to an Australian Communications Authority probe. ■ At the time, Geelan berated his ‘ham’ radio colleagues for their web-based lives: “Do any of you ever go out and get pissed - I doubt it.” ■ Geelan listed his publishing company as ‘VicNews Pty Ltd’.

■ Pearl Hamer, of Hurstbridge, was successfully operated on in Melbourne for the removal of her tonsils on Wednesday. She was able to return home on Thursday.

Court change ■ MrT. R. Dunlop, Clerk of Petty Sessions at Whittlesea, has been promoted and transferred to Horsham. He will be followed by Mr J. Brown, from Fitzroy.

Personals ■ Mr Keith Lindsay, oldest son of Mr A. Lindsay, of Whittlesea, began work at the Masonic Hospital this week. MrAllan Lindsay, chief motor mechanic at the Whittlesea Station, is spending his leave at Devenish. Miss B. Stevenson, of Kangaroo Ground, has been seriously ill and has gone away for rest and treatment.

Boxing at M’worth

■ The tournament promoted by the Athletic club was started last Saturday night. A splendid night's entertainment resulted. The crowd was not up to expectations owing to the weather, but a large crowd is expected next Saturday night when further heats of the tournanent will be contested. In the featherweight division H. Lyons, of Molesworth, defeated W. Harris, of Alexandra. Dave Creighton and Tiny Roberts, both of Molesworth, put up a thrilling contest; the referee was unable to separate them at the finish and declared it a draw. In the welterweight division, R. Free, of Yarck, defeated. A. Roberts, of Molesworth. In the open division W. Lewis, of Merton, accounted for E. Brown, of Molesworth. In a special challenge contest between J. Murphy. of Yea, and T.

TV show inspires ‘War on Waste’ focus ■ ABC-TV’sWar on Waste has Murrindindi Shire Council talking about what it can do to continue reducing waste being sent to landfill. Cr Rebecca Bowles, who holds the portfolio for Natural Environment and Climate Change, said many suggestions have been made by the community regarding waste management. She says the draft Council Plan, due to be finalised next week, recognises there is more Council can be doing to reduce the generation of waste and to increase the amount of waste that is recycled. “For example, we want to build on the Resource Recovery Centre re-use program which has proved popular in the community. “This program allows Shire residents to take, re-purpose and re-use materials from RRCs across the Shire free of charge. “We are working closely with our neighbouring Councils to increase the range of materials that can be economically recycled at our RRCs, such as hard and soft plastics and polystyrene, as well as working together to reduce the current operational costs,” said Cr Bowles.

● Cr Rebecca Bowles “t is useful to remind people about what recycling is already available at the RRCs. “People can recycle garden waste, tyres, couches, mattresses, metals and items substantially comprised of metal such as white goods, electronic waste (anything electrical that isn’t white goods, including mobile phones), used motor oil, light bulbs including fluorescent tubes, lead acid batteries and DrumMuster containers. “People can also recycle ‘commingled’ items at our RRCs. These are the same items you would put all together in your recycling bin, like paper, cardboard, cans, tins and recyclable household plastics numbered between 1 and 7. “While most recyclable

material is sent out of the Shire for processing back into other products, the main exception is green waste, which is mulched on-site by contractors and made available to be taken by ratepayers and local businesses. “However, the bulk of the green waste is taken by a local company and turned back into quality (clean, weed-free, composted) products that are then sold, including back to Council, where it has been used for garden beds in our parks.” Cr Bowles said there are also some everyday items that are not generally recycled, but should be, including aerosol cans and pizza boxes. “People often mistakenly put polystyrene, filled plastic bottles and heavy metal items into recycling when they can’t actually be recycled. “There are also some items we don’t accept at our RRCs as we either can’t manage the product onsite or there isn’t a cost effective recycling solution at the moment. “For example, most construction materials such as bricks, concrete, plaster and timber go straight to landfill, ” Cr Bowles said. 2r7obmH

Concerns about CFA changes ■ Local Parliamentarian Cindy McLeish spoke last week about changes to legislation affecting firefighters. “I rise to join the debate on the Firefighters’ Presumptive Rights Compensation and Fire Services Legislation Amendment (Reform) Bill 2017,” Ms McLeish told the Legislative Assembly. “I think the title says it all; it should be two bills. The explanatory memorandum also indicates that it should be two bills. “The first component of the bill, being the changes to the Workplace Injury Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2013, is clearly indicative that the presumptive rights compensation is a separate bill, because it has no overlap with the second component, which is to amend the Metropolitan Fire Brigade Act 1958 and the Country Fire Authority Act 1958. This should be two bills. “I think that the government is playing politics with this. “They have brought it into the house very quickly, without a lot of work, and in fact the work that has been done seems to have been done in secret. “:We have previously heard that the emergency services commissioner as recently as February did not know anything about the boundary changes, and apparently this has been worked on for five months. “If you go back five months, it is certainly before that time. This bill, as I said, has been drafted quickly, and it leaves too many unanswered questions. “It is seen by many to diminish the role and effectiveness of the Country Fire Authority (CFA) and the volunteers, who give all to the protection of their communities. “I will take up the member for Frankston’s contribution. He said that perhaps those on this side of the house should not speak to the executive of the Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria (VFBV) and perhaps should talk to the real firefighters. “Well, I will tell him that I have 51 brigades in my electorate, and the information that I get is from my local brigades. “I have captains ring me and email me. I have members of the brigade in general who will see me in the street and come and talk to me about this. “So I get my information from those on the ground. I do not get my information from the VFBV, and they are not the ones who brief me. “If we look at the context in which this bill has been introduced, it is at a time when the government is stomping all over volunteers. “It has been a time of major upheaval with the loss of key stakeholders, many of them quite senior, including a minister as well. “It is a time when volunteers have been demoralised but are certainly not defeated. “I am appalled that the government is playing politics here and has linked the presumptive

■ State Parliamentarians resume sitting next week (Tuesday-Thursday, June 20-22) at Spring Street.

Russell recognised rights legislation compensation bill to the restructure of the fire services. “As I said, there are two components to this bill: the introduction of presumptive rights legislation and the split of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) and CFA — in fact the abolition of the MFB — to create the new fire services body, Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV). “I am going to start with the presumptive rights legislation. It is about time this part of the bill was introduced. “We expected it quite a long time ago. In fact the minister promised to introduce it within 120 days of forming government. It is now well over two years and 100 days since that time. “Even at the first budget hearings the former minister, the member for Brunswick, told a Public Accounts and Estimates Committee hearing that the ‘budget acquits every election commitment’that the ALP has made. We know that is not true. “We know also that the opposition supports the presumptive rights legislation component, and we stand ready to join with the government should they split it to move that legislation quite quickly through the Parliament. “We also know about Peter Marshall, the Premier’s right-hand man, and his views on presumptive rights legislation, in particular his views on presumptive rights legislation and volunteer firefighters. “When the Queensland government moved to introduce legislation that ensured volunteer firefighters who contracted cancer on the job would receive compensation, Peter Marshall went on the attack. “He did not think there was the same type of evidence or studies for volunteer firefighters. He did not think that volunteer firefighters should be part of Queensland presumptive rights legislation. “He was opposed to the change, saying there was no evidence to support it. “I want to now move to the fire services changes, to the formation of Fire Rescue Victoria. We have had over time eight reviews into fire operations in Victoria, and none of them has suggested this split. There has been no compelling reason, not one. “The only person who seems to support this split is Peter Marshall and the United Firefighters Union (UFU), and the power they have over the Premier to get this bullied through and pushed through is really quite extraordinary. “We see the UFU out now

peddling their ads on TV and radio about the fire services being outdated, about antiquated boundaries. “In those he actually seems to be putting down volunteers and that volunteers at integrated stations are not able to get out and do the job that needs doing. “This restructure, the creation of Fire Rescue Victoria and the split between the MFB and the CFA, is a major restructure. “There are core components of restructuring that ensure success, but this bill does not give me any confidence. “One of the key components of a good restructure is keeping people informed — people on the ground who are doing the work. “This would be regardless of whether it is a government department restructure, a corporate restructure or an incorporated association restructure. “Keeping people informed is the number one criteria for success. We know here that there have been very few people informed. We also know that some time ago the Premier was a signatory to the emergency management volunteer statement, which clearly says that they will: ■ “Work with and support a positive integration of paid and volunteer emergency management workers; ■ Ensure that volunteer views, opinions and concerns are considered before adopting any new or changed policies, procedures or approaches that impact on them as volunteers. “They have not done any of it whatsoever. If it is not done well, this will be another restructure that is ineffective, a huge waste of money and a loss of good resources. “We really hope that volunteers do not walk away because, as I have said, they have been demoralised. “With this restructure, the coalition have a number of issues of concern, and one of those is governance. Who is pulling the strings and what is the clear agenda? “The chief fire officer, Steve Warrington, is unaware exactly what this means. “We also have other concerns about the core components of role clarity, of knowing who has accountability for what. What responsibilities belong where? This is not articulated. “The volunteers, particularly those at integrated stations, are very confused about what this means, and while you have this level of confusion where people are unsure about what is going to happen, it does not lead to positive changes.”

His achievements certainly are extraordinary,” Ms McLeish said.

Nod to Aunty Joy

■ Eildon MLA Cindy McLeish last week paid tribute in State Parliament to elder ‘Aunty Joy’. “On Saturday, May 27, Dreamtime came to the Yarra Ranges. An inaugural match between Woori Yallock and Healesville was played under lights at Woori at the same time as the AFL Dreamtime match,” Ms McLeish told the Legislative Assembly. “I want to commend all at AFL Yarra Ranges as well as the Woori Yallock and Healesville football netball clubs for this initiative, which I hope will continue for many years to come. “Aunty Joy Murphy was the perfect person to conduct the welcome to country. She is a Wurundjeri elder, a league patron of AFL Yarra Ranges and a Yarra Valley local, so she was very much on her home turf. “She, along with Leisl Morrey, made the idea a reality. On top of all this, Aunty Joy’s daughter and granddaughters played in the netball on opposing teams and her granddaughter Sophie Young designed the netball dresses and football jumpers worn for the occasion. “Sophie did an exceptional job incorporating significant Wurundjeri symbols into the design. Of note and most prominent and featured on the front of the uniforms was the Yarra River, or Birrarung, which winds between the two towns. “The wombat, the platypus and gum leaves were also featured. It was terrific that Yorta Yorta man and former AFL umpire Glenn James could join in the event by tossing the coin.”

■ Yea High S chool Year 9 students will be helping Landcare to plant trees in the local area over coming months. Students ventured to the end of Racecourse Rd to work with Chris Cobern, Co-ordinator of the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network for the first session. Students spent the morning planting small plants and tress beneath an old gum tree that is at risk of dying. The area had been fenced off to stop cattle from causing impact to the soil around the tree and damage to the tree itself. The aim is for the new plants to support the old tree as a place for wildlife and to rejuvenate the compacted soil. The next tree planting mornings will take place in Limestone, down Deep Dean Rd and then a whole days session in Strath Creek.

and particularly with the budget their ratepayers, and thus have a responsibility to run the Council in the most economical manner and at minimum cost to ratepayers. “It is not Council’s role to build up an excessive cash reserve at the expense of the ratepayer.” Murrindindi Counci’s Statutory Plan, prepared in 2013, provided for its cash reserves to now be $9.01 million, but the real figure in 201617 is $22.83 million, Mr Healy claimed. The 2-17-18 budget figure indicates reserves of $24.75 million in cash and ‘cash equivalents’, beyond expectation, Mr Healy says.

■ The Yea Primary School Shopping Tour will be held on Saturday, October 28.

I have suffered from diabetes for 20 years wth very high sugar levels and cramps, my sugar levels were always around 18 to 20, since I have taken Cejuvenate, my sugar levels have dropped to around 8 and I have cut back on my insulin. My cramps have also gone. Cejuvenate is a miracle and has transformed me to do things I was not able to do for years. Bill/Bendigo

Since taking Cejuvenate my blood flow to my feet has improved dramatically, as a bad diabetic my foot was going to be amputated, as a last resort I heard about Cejuvenate and thought I would have nothing to lose, after 3 weeks on Cejuvenate I went to my specialist who could not believe what he saw, my circulation had improved immensely due to Cejuvenate, and I never had to have my foot amputated. Cejuvenate saved my life. Brian/Mildura

I have suffered from Arthritis for many years, since taking Cejuvenate I have no arthritis whatsoever. I have told all my friend to take it as nothing on the market compares to Cejuvenate. Wendy/Bendigo

Council News Author visits

● Kinglake Library’s ‘Best Dressed’ award winner and active library member Tim McCarthy, receiving his longneck bottle of VB – most fitting for a ‘1950s bloke’. ■ More than 130 Murrindindi Shire booklovers from Taggerty to Kinglake enjoyed a special visit by author of The Dressmaker, Rosalie Ham, on Wednesday (June 8). Ms Ham’s tour was part of the State Library of Victoria’s High Roads to Reading campaign which brings authors to public libraries across Victoria. With the assistance of the Murrindindi Library Service, Rosalie set a busy schedule for the day. Her first stop was Taggerty Hall,, to the Yea Library, and then on to the Kinglake Library for her final session. Cr Sandice McAulay said feedback from those attending was hugely supportive of the events, with audience members commenting on Rosalie’s warmth, engaging style and sense of humour. “Rosalie spoke about her background growing up on a farm in Jerilderie, which she attributed to making her independent, strong and capable,” said Cr McAulay. “Her mother was actually a dress maker and she admitted she had been privy to many conversations young ears probably shouldn’t have heard,” “Rosalie gave a different and entertaining insight at each stop about how the book was written and her personal involvement in the making of the movie. “One thing that particularly struck a chord with Rosalie was that it appears people living in small towns around the world are all very similar. She noted comments from readers even from Norway who indicated people in their small town were very similar to ours”, she said. Cr McAulay said it was great that so many people travel distances to enjoy the session and many dressed especially for the occasion. “It is great for our libraries to host events like this for our communities and for visitors to our wonderful Shire. They are very welcome opportunities to come together, make new friends, talk about interesting ideas and stories, share a laugh and have some fun at the same time” said Cr McAulay.

■ This weekend Yea Under 12 footballers travelled to face off against the unknown in Wandong. Yea jumped out early again with five goals straight including an escorted run through the middle of the ground taking four bounces before launching from 35m out as Riley Slevin chugged his way up the hill to split the high diddle diddle. Stephen Clue was owning the wing and when Hayden Marks kicked his sixth goal, Yea was set to go big. 11.5.71 to no score at half-time. The Wandong Warriors came out after the big break just like their namesake with some hard tackling and attacks on the ball. Yea came in at three-quarter time a little rattled and a bit baffled by the sudden aggression. Wandong continued to go hard with velocity. High flies and gang tackles before Reece Harding kicked his third leaving it all too little too late for the Warriors. We received a fair reality check in the second-half despite the win. Yea 13.7 (85) defeated Wandong 1.1 (7) Goalkickers: H.Marks 6, R.Harding 3, R.Slevin 2, L.Kelderman 1, Jack Harrison 1 Memorable Moments: Luke Keldermans confidence and attack on the football rose to a new level. He’s looking every bit the complete footballer.

■ 1st Quarter. Yea travelled to Seymour to take on Euroa once again. The game was soon underway with some quick goals to Euroa. The girls worked hard in defence, Melina in GK and Shanae with some great intercepts on the wing. Lily and Grace keep the ball flowing and a goal by Olivia puts Yea on the board. A few more goals to Euroa, Yea needs to work hard to close the gap. 2nd Quarter. The girls know they need to put pressure on Euroa this quarter. Sarah and Emma were defending well in the goal square and better passing by Yea gets the ball to the Yea end for some much needed goals by Olivia and Holly. Yea needed to work hard in the second half to get within reach. Yea 5, Euroa 18 3rd Quarter. Yea were determined to catch up and apply great pressure on the Euroa side. Shanae was continuing her great form from the first half. This quarter saw many turnovers from both sides and goals are not coming freely to either team. Yea kept Euroa scoreless for the quarter, a great team effort from all. Yea 7, Euroa 18 4th Quarter. Yea came out fighting against this strong Euroa side hoping to keep them scoreless again this last quarter. A few passing errors allowed Euroa to take advantage and score. Yea hit back with four goals but unfortunately it’s not enough for the win. Well done girls, a great team effort against a strong opponent. Final Score: Euroa 27 def Yea 11 Awards. Royal Mail Voucher – Shanae Baker Tiger Bucks – Melina Zipsin.

■ Q1. Great quarter by the Yea girls. Maddie and Zoee playing well in defence and Finn and Bella doing a great job in attack. Q2. Yea girls battled hard but were out scored in the second quarter. Maddie was a star at goal keeper taking many intercepts. Tilly was reading the ball well in the centre and Sienna was keeping her opponent busy in Wing defence. Q3. A fantastic quarter by the Yea girls, playing well to bring the score to 7-all. Bridie was shooting well as Goal Shooter, assisted by some great passing by Bonnie in Wing Attack. Hayley contributed well in Wing Defence and Finn was strong in centre. Q4. Aclose last quarter although Wandong proved a bit too tall for the Yea girls. Maddie took many intercepts as goal keeper and Finn and Bella were good in the mid court. A great game by the Yea girls, a win is not far away. Yea 9, Wandong 11 Awards: Royal Mail Maddie.

Elder Abuse Day

■ Tomorrow (Thurs., June 15) is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. Murrindindi Council is calling on all Shire residents to think about how we treat our ageing community members and raise awareness of elder abuse. Community Services Portfolio Councillor Sandice McAulay noted this is a real issue across Australia. “Elder abuse is the mistreatment of an older person by someone with whom they have a trusted relationship, such as a partner, family member, friend, or carer. This could be physical, social, financial, psychological or sexual and can include mistreatment and Cr McAulay,” she said. “It can also lead to serious physical injuries and long-term psychological consequences. Sometimes family, friends and carers may not know their actions amount to elder abuse,” Cr McAulay said.

Yea 21.18 (144) defeated Yarra Junction 0.2 (2) A combination of young and old talent was responsible for Yea’s 142-point demolition of Yarra Junction on Saturday. James Clavarino, Cam Scott, Stuart Miliken, Michael Papadopolous, Chris Leatham and Peter Kiss were among a host of senior premiership players who fronted up to help lead the Tigers to victory. They weren’t alone, with debutants Jonathon Neville (four goals), Reece La Haye and Jacob Christie (two goals) all featuring prominently in the win. Darcy Pell was superb in the ruck, giving his onballers first use on his way to a best on ground performance, while Cam Ryan racked up possessions at will through the midfield and John Kirby booted nine majors.

The result was never really in doubt, with Yea applying early scoreboard pressure and never letting up, resigning the visitors to a heavy defeat. The percentage boosting victory locks the yellow and black into fifth position on the ladder, a game clear of Seville. The Tigers will square off against Kinglake after the bye. - Patrick Evans

With a half time lead of 14, Yarra Junction wielded the changes, bringing on what was almost their A-Grade side. They were out to reduce the margin and they did that, but not to the extent that they were expecting. Yea were fantastic, restricting many balls into attack, none better than Rach who faced up to the league’s A-Grade second-place shooter. She was completely mismatched but Rach bodied her up and made her earn every ball she went for, earning the praise of all her team mates. Chels did a fantastic 'stopping' job on the WA, restricting her use of the ball and Cindy N was brilliant in the centre position, her experience vital in this quarter. Despite the lead being brought back to seven the coaches were proud of the way the girls lifted their game to another level. With the B-Grade team back on court, Yea really put their foot on the pedal in the last quarter. Rhiannon made numerous intercepts in GK, propelling Yea into attack where Hannah and Reggie moved the ball swiftly and accurately into Reg and Cindy who both goaled with confidence. The Tigers put 17 goals through the ring in this last quarter whilst the defence did a number on Junction, allowing only three goals through the hoop. Every player really did their job on Saturday and could have all been given the award, which was given to Reggie for her great job in goals and the wing. After a tough first quarter she came out and got better and better as the game progressed, her movement in WA brilliant in the last quarter. Well done girls, the coaches couldn't be more proud of you. Yea 56 def Yarra Junction 35 Goals: A. Akers 25 , R. Bell 18, C. Hayes 13. Best: R. Bell, H. Christie, C. Helder Award: Regina Bell

on a near perfect day for football after the fog lifted and included Jasper Rouget to replace Rhys Steward and were then forced to add the injured Scott Heveren when Brayden Norris was injured in the warm-up. Steve Steiner, playing his 100th game, led the side onto the ground but Yarra Glen was first to goal at the town end after about two minutes of play. The Alex defence was under early pressure as Rouget marked well but the visitors broke through with their second goal. Alex was struggling to get the ball into their forward 50 before Michael Coombs aided by a 50 metre penalty put his team deep into attack. Alexandra's first score was a behind but it was the defence led by Jack Goonan that was keeping Alex in the game. Alex continued to press and Heveren kicked a much needed goal for the home side before Alex ran the ball out of defence with a series of well directed passes but was unable to finish as the visitors defense was able to hold the Rebels to a single first quarter goal but it was only a nine point deficit at the first break. The second quarter followed a similar pattern with defences well on top, Alex had a chance when Steve Steiner and Rouget were able to combine to give Scott Hill a chance but his kick did not match the build up. Ben Woollard, getting back to his best form, dashed forward and along with Will Goonan, provided Luke Heard with an opportunity but he too was offline as was Nathan Dundas as Alex wasted precious chances. Alex was matching it with Yarra Glen but the visitors goaled nearly halfway into the quarter. Jordan Purcell was playing his best game for the season and Steiner and Ben Cooper were strong at the contest as Alex finally goaled when Heard earned a free close in. Cooper applied a strong tackle and earned a free but Yarra Glen took the ball the length of the ground to kick their fourth goal late to lead by 15 points in a low scoring tight game. Yarra Glen kicked their fifth goal early in the third quarter but Ryley Norris kicked a quick reply. A free enabled the visitors to kick a sixth goal before play was stopped due to a serious leg injury to Travis Carter 14 minutes into the quarter. Play was stopped for nearly fifty minutes as an ambulance was called and Travis stabilised and placed in the ambulance. The Club wishes this young player who has worked so hard to establish himself in the team all the best for a speedy recovery. When play resumed Alex started well and a goal to Dundas from the scoreboard pocket was reward for effort but Yarra Glen kicked the last goal of the third quarter. Norris and Zach Heaslip forwarded to Chris Mullins but unfortunately his left foot was astray leaving Alex 21 points down at the last change. The last quarter began at 4.47 pm and Alexandra's failure to force a behind was costly early then an Alex long shot on goal was touched on the line before Steiner returned the ball to Hill for an accurate snap. Jack Elkington's effort beating three opponents on the wing was great but Yarra Glen goaled. With injuries to Alex and with virtually no interchange, the latter part of the last quarter was all Yarra Glen as they finished on very well. Will Goonan passed to Cooperwho kicked Alexandra's last goal but the visitors won comfortably 13.12 (90) to Alex 6.9 (45).

■ It was an impressive start by the Tigers as the focus from coach Cindy was to put everything on the line. The first 15 minutes certainly saw all seven players doing so, putting in high work rate, strong drives and communicating well. Superstar Megan Leatham who was playing her 250th game put everything on court, moving well in attack and feeding well into Meg and Nikki who were also moving well in the ring. Chelsea was very effective in the midcourt, presenting well for every pass and applying amazing pressure. Defenders had a tough day but credit to all players who didn't drop their heads and kept going. Brooke and Bridget tried everything to overcome YJ shooters but couldn't quiet find a way to take them out of the game. Sophie Stares and Sarah shared the WD position and did their job well. Yarra Junction had a lead of four after the first quarter. The second quarter saw a change in the Tigers line-up, with Meg moving from one end of the court to the other. This pushed Nikki back into GS and Megan into GA. Soph W came on into the WA position giving some direct play, working well with Megan, Nikki and Chels. Having Meg in defence was a change but that didn't stop her from contesting every ball. Bridget worked well with Meg, adjusting to the combination and again putting her body on the line. Half-time score was 18-27. The third quarter saw Yea improve that little bit more, with intensity high and ball movement was exceptional all the way down the court. Meg moved back to goals working with Nikki and Chelsea in WA. Hannah came on in Centre with some fresh legs, offering for every ball and her contesting for every ball was so strong. Sarah came back on into WD and Brooke took the GK bib. It was a much better quarter in terms of scoring off turnover but silly errors are where we lost possession. Score line after three quarter time was Yea 25- YJ 36. The last quarter we saw the one change to the WA positon, which saw Megan come back on. It was a very good last quarter by all seven players, still edging the score line back. Unlucky to the Tigers in the end. It was a well fought match and credit to the girls that sacrificed positions and game time to those who matched the Yarra Junction side better. Good effort girls in a tough match.

Despite ending up 20 goal victors, the scoreline doesn't indicate how tough this match was for the B-Grade girls. Up by only four at quarter-time, the girls really took on board the advice at the break and after a few sloppy minutes which saw Junction take the lead by 1 goal, the Tigers turned it around and produced some great netball. Reg and Reggie shared the goaling duties in the first half and as their confidence grew with each other they both converted consistently, goaling 16 and 15 respectively. Loz did a power of work on the GS and during the second quarter started outplaying her and getting her hands to many balls.


After a two-point win on the previous weekend, Yea needed to improve their transition and strengthen up their attacking play. The first quarter showed some good passages of play but still not to the standard that we've been working on. Tigers had several patches where the play was amazing and some patches where miscommunication and effort was lacked. Mum and daughter duo, Judy and Jordan, had a solid first quarter in our attacking end, placing the ball appropriately into Tigers shooters Jess and Fiona. Jess and Fiona had a very consistent game, working the ball around and shooting within their range. The second quarter was a better quarter, with more defensive pressure being applied. It was scoring off those turnovers that could be improved. It was fast play at times which meant silly errors were made all the way down the court. Deb and Kim had the strongest combination on the day, deflecting and working together very well. To make those defenders work easier it starts with pressure from all the way down the court, which Emily and Ruby did a tremendous job doing so. Their one-on-one defensive pressure was effortless, taking their players out of the game. The third quarter was the Tigers’ strongest quarter on the day: scoring better off turnovers and really working together as a team. The centre pass plays were a highlight in the second half, which was evident from the sideline. Judy and Molly had strong leads and were balancing the court out and reading off each other well. Jess and Fiona were once again moving well together all game. The last quarter the tigers really brought it home. It was a very one sided game but Yarra Junction didn't give up all game. Tigers kept working together and really implementing what we've been working on all season. Credit to all nine players who keep getting better each week. Great job!

D-GRADE After suffering their first defeat against Alexandra the week before, the Tigers were determined to return to the winners’ list against Yarra Junction. The game started in typical cold, foggy conditions and it was Yea who warmed up the quickest, getting the early goals on the board through Amy and Molly. Harriet was brilliant in the centre position in the first quarter, making great space and drive through the attacking circle to pass beautifully into the goal ring. Yea led 8-3 at quarter-time. The Tigers dominated the second quarter, with Tessa and Sarah doing a great job in defence, scrambling for every ball that came their way. Kate ran the centre and completely controlled the pace of the game, offering many options all over the court. Yea outscored the visitors by seven goals in this quarter and then Kate and Sarah kept them without a goal in the third quarter to see the Tigers well up at the last break: 22-5. Ebony and Molly shared the goal ring in the last quarter and both girls moved well, finding the front position beautifully and then converting 11 goals between them to help the Tigers to a convincing victory. Having only eight players this week allowed all the younger girls a full game of netball and none were better than India who was given the coaches award for her brilliant job at WD. She shut down the WA in defence and then was a great option many times bringing the ball back into Yea's attack. Well done India and all the team. Yea 33 def Yarra Junction 6 Goals: A.

■ The AFL Yarra Ranges League Round 8 of the 2017 season last Saturday saw the Rebels return to Rebel Park and host Yarra Glen for two games of football and four games of netball, the ground in great condition after a little late week rain and the skies clearing after some early morning fog. The Reserves included a couple of former players Damien Toomey and Andrew Moravski along with a newcomer Nick Waugh who works locally along with Jacob Brereton and Conor Heaslip to challenge the undefeated competition leaders Yarra Glen and the visitors started well and, despite the efforts of Chase Pearce and Paul Brooks in defence, kicked four goals to one in the first quarter. Alex won the second quarter with Brereton and David Bourke doing well at the clearances and Waugh showing plenty of talent on his wing to narrow the margin at half time. The third quarter was tight with only one goal each as the ball rebounded between the halfback lines. The last quarter was again a battle of defenses as Heaslip and Tom Halligan continued to provide drive from the midfield. Alex continued to challenge the top side and was beaten by only a kick in the best game of reserves football I have seen this season. Yarra Glen 8.8 - 56 defeated Alex 7.8 - 50.

■ The Under 16sventured out of theYea fog to take on Wandong for the first time.The ground in perfect condition and the weather excellent theTigers were confident of a good showing. Yeahad four players unavailable through injury and long weekend getaways but Wandong were limited to16 players so it was 16-a-side on the small ground.The first quarter saw Yea off to a flyer withFirminscoring in the opening seconds,the goal umpire still not in position. From the opening goal Wandonghit back and the rest of the quarter was pretty even with both backlines under pressure. Quartertime Yea 3.2 (20) to Wandong 2 .1 .13. The Tigerstook control of the game in the second booting4.4 to 2.1withallplayerscontributinginsomeway.Again it was the defence ofYeastanding tall as it was one long kick out of the centre to full forward , keeping the backs on their toes. Half-time: Yea7 .6 (48) to Wandong 4 .2 (20) . The third term became a real battle with both teams going goal for goal. Wandongwouldn't go away and were probably playing the better footy as Yea were not finding targets,with the ball often sailing over the heads of or falling well short of the intended player. Three-quarter time Yea 9.9 (63) toWandong 7.7 (49). The stage was set for a thrilling last quarter and when Turvey goaled early it looked likeYea would run away with the game butWandong kept fighting back to have a real chance to steal the game.With only minutes on the clock,in his first game back in over a monthMuthi Charlie went for a run from the wing to the pocket and eventually slot through the winner. The backmen led by Nick Gilbee kept the ever attacking Wandong team at bay and the Tigers hold on to win12.9.81 to11.9.75, Goals: Turvey and Beattie4 each,Wilsmore2, FirminandCharlie1each .Betterplayers Gilbee,Turvey,J Harry, Muller , Z Harry. Thanks to Dean Clue for umpiring and to the parents who volunteer their time in various roles so the games can go ahead,your efforts are greatly appreciated. - Jack McMaster.
