Yea rail mystery

d it. Live it.

■ This colourised photo of Yea Railway Station is proving to be a mystery for local railman LanceAdams. The postcard snap is undated, and was produced sometime after the line to Molesworth was opened in November 1883. The Yea Butter Factory in the background was built in 1891. “There is an interesting metal water tower in the Image, bordering Oliver St which might help to narrow down the date,” Lance says. “This tank is in a position where I don't re-

call any mention of watertanks. The only watertanks I know of were the lineside tanks at each end of the station yard. “This pictured water tank is a similar design to the one still surviving at Mansfield to this day,” Lance says. “By dating the construction of the two lineside tanks and the removal of this one, we may be able to date the image.” Are you able to put a date on this photograph?

Murrindindi Council Analysis

No change after public submissions COMMENT

Council set to approve $5mil in losses

■ Tonight (Wed.), the Murrindindi Shire Council will hold a brief meeting. The seven Councillors appear set to pass a Strategic Resource Plan for the next four years (201721), and an Annual Budget (2017-18). The Strategic Resource Plan maps out a deficit of $½ million in each of the four financial years. This comes on top of a $2.9 million deficit in 2015-16, and $1.1 million loss in 2016-17. Where is the money coming from the fund the Council living beyond its means? The cash will have to come from ratepayers. In adjoining Mansfield Shire, the Council is cutting its cloth to suit its budget. It is reducing its spending, and looking at selling off some of its assets to responsibly pay its way. Importantly, it is conducting real conversations with its ratepayers to keep them informed, and to allow them to participate in the decision-making. In Murrindindi Council, ratepayers are being subjected to a tricky public relations ploy. Much is being made that the Council received 1600 responses to a three-question survey, using the theme of ‘Have Your Say’. Some 400 of the survey responses came from local school children. The remaining 1200 responses contained adult answers to three simple questions. Murrindindi Shire and its Councillors are now claiming that those survey responses give a mandate to the Council to embark upon its four-year plan of spending beyond its means. Of course, the survey does no such thing. The survey failed to engaged some 88 per cent of Shire residents. It is a one-card trick. The Council repeatedly refers to the ‘Have Your Say’ survey in its four-year plan, its budget and its many media releases. Submitters earlier this month made written and verbal submissons to the Council. Replies from a Council officer are in a document to be referred to Councillors tonight. The reply makes no attempt to answer the claim of ex-Cr Chris Healy that the Council is tucking away more than $24 million in cash reserves. Councillors are riding roughshod over local residents.

■ The $250,000-a-year soon-toleave Murrindindi Council CEO Margaret Abbey’s parting legacy to Shire residents is a $1.1 million loss this financial year, plus $500,000 deficits for each of the coming 10 financial years. This follows a $2.951 million loss last year (2015-16). This time last year, then-Mayor Cr Margaret Rae promised a “breakeven result” for the 2016-17 year, with a nominal surplus of $1000. Instead, ratepayers have to cop yet another financial loss: a deficit likely to be $1.1 million. It seems increcible that the current Councillors begin their Murrindindi Shire Council Plan with the words: “We are thrilled to present to our community Murrindindi Shire Council’s 2017-2021 Council Plan. This Plan is the result of collaboration between Council and the communities of Murrindindi Shire. It sets the direction for Council’s work over the next four years.” “Thrilled”? Really? If any Murrindindi family, or any Murrindindi local business, announced two years of extraordinary multi-million losses, and a plan for losses for each of the next 10 years, the only word to be used be ‘devastating’. The approach from Councillors is breathtaking. So is the language used in the responses to members of the public who made submissions regarding the Plan and Budget. The only difference made by the submissions is that the Council has made “minor word changes”. The Council explains: “Many of the submissions either sought greater clarity in wording and content, or provided valuable suggestions on how the strategies contained in the draft Council Plan could be implemented. “Council has considered all submissions and some minor wording changes have subsequently been made to improve clarity throughout the document. Overall strategic directions within the Council Plan remain unchanged.” The officer report explains away each of the submitter’s concerns: Submitter 1. This submission suggested that the budget and Council Plan documents do not adequately address issues raised at the Alexandra “Have Your Say” workshop, namely concerning the following topics: the unexpectedly strong financial state of the Council, need for TV advertising to better promote the Shire, need for a Chamber of Commerce in Alexandra and the

This submission focused on the “Our Prosperity” strategic objective of the Council Plan. The submission outlined some key challenges and opportunities in relation to the future prosperity of the Shire and requested that these be considered in the final drafting of the Council Plan, including the inclusion of an additional strategy. The submission also proposed areas to focus on when implementing each of the strategies under the Our Prosperity section and offered advice on the further development of each of the strategic indicators. The submission proposed an additional strategy relating to the development of an effective identity and brand for Murrindindi Shire. ● An extract from the Council’s draft Plan in which Officer Comment: “Again this ongoing financial losses are predicted for the next 10 years submission contains very useful sug-

Slogans adopted ■ Murrindindi Shire Councillors have adopted a number of key slogans to justify their big-spending budgets: “The Council has set its direction around four key strategic objectives as follows: Our People “Together we will encourage and celebrate diverse, caring and connected communities Our Place “We will maintain and enhance places to be attractive and liveable, in balance with our natural environment Our Prosperity “In partnership with the community we will promote an environment in which business and community can thrive Our Promise “We will all work in collaboration with our communities to deliver the best possible outcomes in all that we do.” gestions in relation to the implementation of the Council Plan strategies under the Strategic Objective Our Prosperity. This will assist in the development of the Implementation Plan. “With reference to the additional strategy proposed in the submission, it is noted that one of the aims of the Council (under Our Commitment on Page 12) is to foster and highlight a Murrindindi identity from a local community belonging and connectedness perspective, and in terms of the external promotion of the Shire. “It is therefore not considered necessary to create a new strategy specifically under Our Prosperity, although Council notes the reasoning and intent of the submitter. Submitter 4. This submission suggested that Council continue to be open and transparent. For Council to include the community in the decision making process, accept criticism, admit when mistakes are made, be diligent in their responsibilities and accountable for their actions. Officer Comment: “It is considered that the intent and sentiment of this submission is already captured on page 14 of the Council Plan which details the values and commitments Council is making with respect to its conduct in office.” Submitter 5. This submission has an environment focus, in particular the protection of the natural environment in future planning. The submission outlined some concerns regarding Council’s focus on events support, specifically regarding the impact that events have on the natural environment. It outlines concerns that open spaces are seen as opportunities for recreation and events rather than respected for the environmental significance and opportunity for quite reflection and appreciation. Further environmental considerations raised were roadside slashing, awareness of indigenous planting, protection of the natural landscapes and the streetscapes, including heritage aspects. “Officer Comments: “Consideration of the need to protect the natuTurn To Page 11

Beanie Festival at Alex. ■ Alexandra's St John's Anglican Church will play host to the Murrindindi Beanie Festival on the weekend of July 22-23. The Alexandra atownship will be decorated accordingly to make the most of the atmosphere of tyhe thiord year of the Festival. According to its volunteer organisers, the event’s popularity continues to increase every year. This year sees the 'Down to Earth Beanie' entry category which means beanies can be sculptural multimedia creations only needing to create the illusion of "wear-ability" - making this category a great entry opportunity for creative kids or school groups. Murrindindi Shire Council's libraries in both Kinglake and Alexandra host craft gatherings on Friday afternoons and there is a range of other groups that get together weekly around the Shire. Murrindindi Shire Council CEO MargaretAbbey, who describes herself as a passionate crafter, said some Council staff had been knitting and crocheting banners in their private time to string up around the township. "Council wants to show its continuing support for this wonderful festival as it transforms the Alexandra township, and provides an artistic, creative opportunity for everyone in the Shire," she said. "It creates so much fun and joy to all those that get into the creative zone, as well as for those who just want to come and soak up the atmosphere and marvel at the quirky (and often very highly-skilled) creations,” Ms Abbey said.

● Chris Price, Murrindindi Shire Council’s CoOrdinator for Emergency Management and Local Laws, gets caught up in Beanie Festival preparation.

Shire to lose millions ● From Page 10 ral environment is captured under the Our Place Strategic Objective to ensure the use of our places and spaces is in balance with the needs of the natural environment. “Specifically the issue is represented in the proposed strategy to “strengthen the environmental sustainability of our communities, protect our natural environment and reduce resource consumption”. “The need to consider the environmental impacts of events is noted and will be further incorporated in the assessment of applications to stage events. “The reference to heritage can be found in another proposed strategy under Our Place to “recognise and embrace the history, culture and identity of our towns and communities” Submitter 6. This submission raised some suggestions for enhancement of the Council Plan. Firstly, recognition of the Taungurung people’s rights over Crown Land and acknowledgement of their intrinsic connection to the land and water resources is important to be included. Inclusion of the theme of engagement with partners, acknowledging that it is imperative that they work together to develop and deliver joint initiatives and leverage funding to achieve mutual goals. The theme of resilience could be strengthened by expanding to include strategies to build community resilience in identifying and responding to environmental challenges such as climate change, natural events and land use changes.

Concerns were raised regarding the lack of a strategic indictor which is specific to protection and enhancement of the natural environment. A further suggestion to include sustainable land use planning as a strategy and relevant strategic indicator was supplied in this submission. Officer Comment: “This submission was from a natural resource management authority and its suggestions reflect the authority’s preference that the Council Plan contains linkages to the authority’s own strategic directions. “It is considered by officers that many of the issues raised are consistent with the current wording of the Council Plan, although not to the same level of specificity as suggested by the submission. “For example Page 14 of the Council Plan highlights Council’s commitment to recognise and acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land. Council’s proposed strategy to “strengthen the environmental sustainability of our communities, protect our natural environment and reduce resource consumption” is in direct response to environmental challenges such as those posed by climate change. “The Strategic Objective for Our Place is also intended to recognise the importance of strategic land use planning in supporting the sustainable development of the Shire.” ■ Two submitters told The Local Paper that they objected to their submissions being edited by Council officers, and published in words other than their own. They were puzzled which the submissions were anonymised by the Council.,, without their permission.

● FromJune 1937 Files

Christmas Hills Rd ■ Sir, Can anything be done to improve the main Christmas Hills road as the-traffic has, more than doubled since Clinton's began holding motor hill climbing con tests. Three men on sustenance could be employed on the, road to advantage as they f have been on the two back roads for the last five or six years. It would also appear that it takes up too much or the time of the two road patrolmen in looking after the sustenance men on both the Yarra Glen and, Christmas Hills patrols spend much time in supervising these sustenance men. More work and less bossing would give better results. The Christmas Hills road is one of the finest and most popular motor drives in the shire, and shotild be in better order. ‘G.P.B.’, Christmas Hills.

Ladies’ Guild ■ The Hazel Glen St John's Ladies' Guild held the first of their winter series of euchre evenings in the Church. hall. A very large number was present, and the winners were Ladies, Mrs. L. Brock, consolation, Miss C. Verso; gentlemen, Mr. A. Verso, consolation Mr. C. Limmer .This series will be held fortnightly, and the aggregate scores will be published every third game.

Rev. R. Jackson ■ A memorial service was conducted in the Methodist Church, Arthur's Creek, by Mr Wilkins, of Surrey Hills, to commemorate the passing of the late Rev Robert Jackson, who died in the Epworth private hospital a few weeks ago. Mr Wilkins, being a personal friend of the late Mr Jackson, gave a very impressive and interesting account of his life and work as a Methodist minister. He had charge of this circuit some 50 years ago and lived, at the Methodist parsonage, with his wife

Y. Glen Gymkhana ■ The Yarra GlenAgricultural Society held a gymkhana on King's Birthday on the Show Girounds and the entries were splendid in all the horse events, but the attendance was very poor, very few of the local people and society members being present

Kinglake dance ■ A dance in aid of the Mothers' club was held in the Kinglake hall last Saturday night Mrs Chrystie was the winner of the chocolate competition; Mrs Hart and Mr. Bradford winning the Monte Carlo. Mr. Sloan Reeves was fortunate to win the box of cigarrettes. Mr A. McLaine was M.C. The music was supplied by Messrs John McMahon, James McMahon and V. Banks. A nice supper was provided.

Youth pranks ■ Patrons to recent functions at the Montmorency Public Hall have been put to great inconvenience following the actions of several youths and boys, barely of school leaving age, who seem to delight in removing cars parked outside the hall. In two cases petrol has been "milked" from cars. The cars are pushed away, in some cases several hundred yards from the hall. A visit to the hall by police would be appreciated by patrons.

Nutfield repairs ■ Telephone contractors are busy re-conditioning the lines from Doreen to Strathewen. For some time this section' has been subject to fading. At present they are in the section from Doreen to Nutfield.

What The Papers Say Saleyards sale?

■ Mansfield Shire mayor Paul Volkering has said the Mansfield saleyards will not be sold, but discussion around the site’s future must start now. But the mayor said the door is open for a future sale of the site if council can find an outcome that is “acceptable to the community”. “No sale is going to happen without further extensive community consultation beyond the budget period and through to the years ahead,” said Cr Volkering. “Council has heard what it needed to hear with regards to the saleyards. We’ve heard the message from the community.” Eighteen submissions to council were made against the sale of the site - Mansfield Courier

Some 16 brigades joined in the march, all dressed in ceremonial uniform. Visiting brigades came from across the region (and some from outside), and included Nagambie, Shepparton, Molka, Strathbogie, Wallan and Kelvin Grove. - Euroa Gazette

Mernda mirage

■ Mernda Town Centre planning is so far behind it should take on a Back To The Future-type vision suited to hoverboards and driverless cars, Yan Yean state Labor MP Danielle Green says. Speaking in Parliament, Ms Green said Whittlesea Council and Mayor Ricky Kirkham had let down residents by their “failure to progress the development the Mernda Town Centre”. “Over the years the population of Mernda and Doreen has skyrocketed and still the centre of Mernda remains a large paddock surrounded by more than 50,000 residents who badly need services and local jobs,” Ms Green said. - Whittlesea Leader

Locked up

■ A popular Healesville picnic ground is still off limits with no fix in sight, eight months after major storms saw the gates closed to the public. Parks Victoria closed the Badger Weir picnic area after trees were uprooted, and toilets, a rotunda, water tanks and picnic tables were damaged when wild storms tore through the region and the Yarra Ranges National Park on October 9 last year. - Lilydale Leader

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

www.LocalPaper.com.au

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

■ 1st Quarter. These two sides, Yea and Alexandra, haven't met since Round 3 and the girls were keen to notch up a win against Alex. With the initial nerves out of the way, Yea worked the ball around the court and soon had their first goal. Emma and Sarah worked well in defence putting good pressure on the Alex side and Yea finished the quarter ahead. 2nd Quarter. Yea came out firing again. Grace and Jordyn kept the ball moving towards the Yea end with great support by Shanae on the wing. Abby and Melody took advantage to score some great goals.

The Yea Story: Part 17

Ned Kelly, bushrangers, in Yea From The Story of Yea by Harvey Blanks ■ Between the coming of the settlers, who selected their land in the wake of the early squatters, and the formation of the Yea Road Board in 1869, there is an almost complete lack of any written records. From occasional scanty references in some of the family histories in the preceding chapters, it seems probable that the early settlers were far too busy trying to earn a livelihood and to secure their land to concern themselves with leaving much historical material for posterity. Unfortunately, the greater part of what family records were left has disapeared, either discarded by a later generation, or destroyed in natural disasters. Some families in the Shire of Yea which had indeed preserved their records and much valuable historical material, lost them when their old homes were burned in the great bushfires of 1969. What few details we still possess of the years before the Road Board was formed have been largely handed down by word of mouth, and there is little written material to corroborate them. The late Mr Daniel McLeish, who was born at Woodburn in 1851, ledt a few tantalising memories of early Yea, in an interviewhe granted a Melbourne journalist, Frank Whitcombe, in 1930. When he first arrived in Yea about 1860, he recalled, kangaroos were to be seen hopping along High Street, on which there were only two houses. One of those as a wattle and daub but with a bark slab roof on the site of the present Savings Bank. It was owned by a George McIntosh who ‘had a bit of land and miled a few cows’. Because of the demands of the gold diggings, horses were at a premium, selling up to £100, and horse stealing was prevalent. McIntosh used to keep his horse at night tethered alongside his hut, with a greenhide rein passing through a hole in the wall and listened to a loop around his wrist. The other house in High Street, of similar rough construction, was owned by blacksmith Robert Cockerell, who had his open-fronted smithy built alongside, with a rail to which travellers might tether their horses while waiting for them to be shed. Cockerell made his own horse shoes from bar iron, wrought on his anvil. What bridges theree were at the time, in and around the settlement, were merely trees that had been felled across the streams. Their upper sides were adzed flat to allow slabs to be pegged to them to form a causeway. They were too narrow for horse-drawn vehicles, and drays and coaches were usually offloaded at the approach of the ‘bridge’, and the goods rolled or carried across, while the vehicle was dragged through the water and mud, to be reloaded on the other bank. There are several early stories suggesting that the Shire may have been visited from time to time by bushrangers, including the Kelly Gang. Six miles north-east of Yea in one of the Shire’s most rugged parts, the Grant Brothers had Switzerland Station.

been a guest of Mr and Mrs William Leyden Ker, at Killingworth. There are several versions of how Yea got its name, but they are really only varying aspects of the same fact. One version says that the name was suggested by Mrs Ker, whose opinion was gallantly sought as the wife of Surveyor Pinniger’s host. Another says that Pinniger himself named the town, out of admiration for the military record of Colonel Yea, a Crimean War hero. A third version holds that the name had already been selected by the surveyor-general, Andrew Clarke, before Pinniger ever arrested in the district. To reach a reasonable conclusion, it is necessary first to know something about the man after whom the town and Shire were named. The Yea family is now extinct in England, but the following brief biographical details have been supplied by Major-General W.D.M. Raeburn, the Resident Governor and Keeper of the Jewel House, Tower of London: Colonel Lacey Walter Giles Yea was born on May 20, 1808, the elder son of Sir William Walter Yea, Bart., of Pyramid Hall, Pyrland, in the County of Somerset. He entered the Army in 1825 at the age of 17 and joined the Royal Fusiliers in April 1828. He was promoted Captain in 1836, Major in 1841, LieutenantColonel in 1850, and Colonel in charge of the Regiment in 1854. Posted to the Crimea on September 14 of that year, he commanded the Royal Fusiliers at the Battles of Alma and Inkerman. He took part in the Siege of Sebastapol up to June 18, 1855, when he was fatally wounded while commanding his men during Wyndham’s night attack on the Redan. Announcing his death in its issue of July 28, 1855, the Illustrated London News wrote: “Among all the officers who fell in the unofrtunate attacl on the Redan, there was no one more deeply lamented by the men under gis commend than Colonel Yea. “The late Lord Raglan, in one of his last despatches, says “he was not only distinguished for his gallanrty but had exercised his control of the Royal Fusiliers in such a manner as

● Colonel Yea to win the affection of the soldiers under his orders, and to secure for them every comfort and accommodation which is personal exertions could procure for them. “No one can wonder at the devoted attachment which was manifested toward him” In his account of the burial of the massed dead in front of the Redan, the correspondent of The Times wrote: “I saw in one place two men apart from the rest with melancholy faces. “What are you waiting for?” I said. “To go out for the Colonel,” was the reply. “What Colonel?” “Why, Colonel Yea, to be sure,” said the good fellow, who was evidently surprised at my thinking there could be any other Colonel in the world. “And, indeed, the Light Division will feel his loss. Under occasional brusqueness of manner he concealed a most kind heart; and a more thorough soldier, one more devoted to his men, to the service, and to his country, never fell in battle than Lacy Yea. “I have reason to know that he felt his great services and his arduous exertions had not been rewarded as he had a right to expect. “At the Alma, he never went back a step, and there were tears in his eyes on that eventful afternoon as he exclaimed to me, when the men had formed on the slope of the hill after the retreat of the enemy, “There! Look there! That’s all that remains of my poor Fusiliers! “A Color’s missing, but thank God no Russians have it!” “Throughout the winter, his devotion to his regiment was exemplary. They were the first who had propeer hospital huts.” Continued on Page 32

The Yea Story: Part 17 ● From From Page Page 31 21 ● “While other regiments were in need of every comfort, and almost of every necessity, the Fusiliers, by the care of their Colonel, had everything that could be procured by exertion and foresight. “He never missed a turn of duty in the trenches, except for a short time when his medical attendant had to use every effort to induce him to go on board ship to save his life.” Today, a portrait of Colonel Lacy Yea hangs in the Royal Fusiliers Headquarters in the Tower of London, where no doubt it will be sought out by future visitors from Yea to Britain. From the dates mentioned above, it will be seen that Colonel Yea was killed only five months before the township was named, and news of his gallant death could have been received in Melbourne only a matter of weeks before Surveyor Pinniger set out for the Goulburn to draw up his plan. Even so, the link between the death of a British military officer in the Crimea and the naming of a new town in a distant colony in the Southern Hemisphere would seem rather a tenuous one - except for one important fact: Colonel Yea, while still a Captain in the late 1830s, had been Surveyor-General Clarke’s beloved commanding officer back in England. The evidence suggests then, that when names were being considered in Melbourne for some of Victoria’s new towns, the surveyor-general, shocked at the news of the death in action of his old friend and comradeat-arms, asked Surveyor Pinniger to commemorate Colonel Yea’s memory by alloting his name to one of them. It seems probable that when the question of a name for the new township came up at Killingworth, where he was staying, Pinniger carefully advanced the suggestion in discussion with his hosts, Mr and Mrs Ker. Victorians in those days were fiercely patriotic, and no doubt the suggestion was enthusiastically received. As Mrs Ker was almost certainly present at these discussions, she would have been able to spread the news among the district’s residents and tell them first-hand details of Colonel Yea’s claim to fame. Conjecture, admittedly, but it does explain the story that Mrs Ker played a special role in the naming of Yea. There is some evidence that as late as 1888 some people pronounced Yea as ‘Yaw’, holding that this was the way in which the late Colonel had pronounced his name, and it should therefore be adhered to. Such people were in a minority, however, and ‘Yaw’ eventually disapeared as an affectation. Earlier in the 20th Century there was a move to have the name changed on the alleged grounds that it might be confused with Hay or (rather improbably) with Yass, both in New South Wales. The real reason for the move, however, was that Yea found it difficult to have news of its affairs published in the Age and the Argus in the weekly column devoted to country towns. Alphabetically, it came at the bottom of the list, and usually found itself omitted for space reasons. Major F.G. Purcell, who was the local Yea correspondent for the Melbourne Press, favoured a change in name to something with an initial letter closer to the beginning of the alphabet, but the support for such a move received little general backing and eventually faded out.

early years - at a salary of £100 a year. Wall was in and out of various paid positions with the Board, sometimes resigning, sometimes being suspended, sometimes being re-appointed after much wrangling, sometimes being investigated by the auditors, but usually emerging vindicated. He had his own supporting and opposing factions within the Board but appears to have played an indispensable role. Before his appointment he was earning a living as the town’s solicitor, registrar of births, deaths and marriages, and a sort of unofficial postmaster. As its first official act, the Board decided to advertise in the Kilmore Free Press and the Alexandra Times for repairs to the bridge ‘near McKenzie’s and further on toward Cotton’s Pinch’. Its inaugural meeting was held in the Court House, the town’s only public meeting place, but it obviously needed a headquarters of its own. It therefore decided that its ordinary meetings ‘for say four weeks’ would be held weekly at two o’clock each Saturday afternoon in Mr William Oliver’s Commercial Hotel. But what was intended to be a temporary arrangement became semi-permanent, because at its very next meeting the Board wrote to Mr Oliver, asking him what rent he would charge for the use of his largest room as its ‘temporary office’. In succeeding months, shelves and cupboards were installed, a carpet laid down and a noticeboard erected outside to carry public announcements. By June, the clerk was instructed to be present in the hotel ‘ofice’ to transact business between 11am and 3pm every Monday, Thursday and Saturdat; but perhaps business was not all that brisk for that instruction was later amended to only one day a week. Until a general rate could be levied the Board needed money for its preliminary expenses and other contingencies, so it decided to approach the Union Bank at Alexandra for a loan of £200 - the equivalent of several thousand dollars today - and then adjouned until its second meeting at the Commercial Hotel on April 24, 1869. The £200 was obtained through a promissory note signed by all original members of the Board. But within less than a month two of the foundation members had resigned, and a new promissory note had to be signed. The resignation apparently stemmed from a decision made at only the third meeting of the Board on May 1 when James Webster and Daniel McLeish proposed and seconded a motion which meant the Board should pay for the clearing of trees and timber and the construction of a drain in McLeish’s Lane, plus the construction of a culvert and a bridge between McLeish’s property and Webster’s, and a bridge over a creek near the Webster property. There is nothing in the Board’s records implying any critcism of its decision to carry out these works but both McLeish and Webster felt it necessary to resign at the meeting on May 15. Their places on the Board were filled by Donald McKay and William Smith, but both Donald McLeish and Jmes Webster were to return to office within months. In those early meetings themes occur which were to return with almost monotonous regularity over the next few years. To Be Continued

YEA JUNIOR FOOTBALL-NETBALL REPORTS UNDER 16 FOOTBALL

■ Sunday was a bright and sunny day in Yea,we arrived in Alex in fog and by the time the Under 16 started, the ground was bathed in sunshine. Charles put Yea on the board in the opening minute, quickly followed by Turvey, who would bag two more for the quarter. Alex fought back with a couple of goals to keep them in striking distance at quarter-time: Yea 5.1 (31) to Alex 2.4 (16). The second quarter was a real arm wrestle, the Yea backs making their opponents earn every score whilst creating oppotunities for the midfielders to set up the Yea forwards.Turvey again in the goals, al ong bomb byWischer and a toe-poke from Beattie gave Yea a 21-point lead at half-time Yea 8.3 (51) toAlex 4.6 (30). The arm wrestle continued in the third term, neither side prepared to surrender the ball easily. Backmen from both teams were on top, with Gilbee and Hildebrand leading the way.The two key forwards for Yea ,Turvey and Firmin, both goaled to increase the Yea lead to29 points at the final break Yea 10.6 (66) to Alex 5.7 (37). The final quarter mirrored the previous two quarters,the Tigers unable to really seal the game until the last 10 minutes, a couple of goals to Alex made the boys a little nervous but another Beattie toe- poke and a long snap from Z. Harry put the game out of the Rebels’ reach . Final score: Yea 13.9 (87) to Alex 7.8 (50). Goals: Turvey 5, Beattie 3,Firmin 2, Charles,Wischer and Z. Harry 1 each. Better players: Turvey,Beattie, Z Harry, Hildebrand, Muller and Gilbee. Thanks again to our small band of volunteers who are prepared to travel and put their hands up to help in some way. - Jack McMaster

UNDER 12 FOOTBALL

■ We came from the sunshine to the hospitality of Alexandra who made us feel at home with the fog, and as that fog rose off the ground in the first quarter it was like a battle field from the moors of Scotland. Yea 1.1 &), Alex 0.1 (1). It wasn’t until half-way through the second when Frankcombe lowered his eyes to hit the lead of Chayne Klinge that our Tigers started taking control of the game. Hayden Marks again blitzed with his K.B.-like lateral runs across the face of goals bagging six again for the day. 6.2 (38) at half-time. The captain, not feeling his best, had the coach asking the team to step up and Jackson Grech was doing just that until a courageous back up into a contested mark saw him come from the field after a head knock, but it was Klinge that shone through covering his forward pocket like a stallion and deservedly thumping through his second for the day. Alexandra fought hard but just couldn’t penetrate past Yea’s forward press at a ground and club we love going to. Yea 11.4 (70) defeated Alexandra 0.1 (1) Goalkickers: H. Marks 6, C. Klinge 2, L. Kelderman 1, R. Harding 1, R. Frankcombe 1 Memorable Moments: Not only the smooth attack on the football all day from Jackson Grech but the commitment and courage shown to back into a contested mark that saw him come off showing how committed his is for his team. - Greg Philpot

UNDER 10 FOOTBALL

■ Our second hit out against Alex was their home game and it was a cold one with the starting temperature just 2 degrees and thick fog. The Yea kids were joking before the game that they are "used to these sorts of conditions" and they did handle them well. The last time Yea met the Saints was Round 1 and the improvement by the Tigers was measurable. The fluent connections transferring the ball down the ground highlighted the growth of the players as individuals and together as a team. Awards this week go to William Granter, Chevy Klinge, Oliver Dredge, Aidan Santarossa, Angus Antrobus and Sam Charles. Well done kids.

beaten last week by Yarra Glen with Jacob Brereton, Tom Halligan, Sam Kidd, Brayden Norris and Nick Waugh coming into the side to replace Travis Carter, Zach Heaslip, Scott Heveren, Jasper Rouget and Jake Steyger. As has often been the case when Alex play at Seville it takes them a quarter to acclimatise to the strange ground and during this stage the home side virtually put the game out of Alexandra's reach with an eight goal to two first quarter. Alex stemmed some of the bleeding in the second quarter restricting the home side to only four goals but even kicking to the downhill end, Alex could only manage a single goal to Brayden Norris. Michael Coombs and Ben Cooper were strong in the many ball ups that marred the game as a spectacle as Alex trailed by nine goals plus at the main break. Seville's multi-pronged and accurate attack of O'Keefe (who finished with seven goals) and Toohey (6 goals) was causing the Alex defence many headaches as was the pace of the Blues small men. Nathan Dundas and Nick Waugh were providing drive from the midfield but any hope of an Alex revival was soon dashed in the third quarter as O'Keefe added consecutive goals early. Jordan Purcell, in defence, had plenty to do and along with Sam Woollard rebounded for much needed goals to Steve Steiner and Heard. Tom Halligan up for his first game for the season and Will Goonan combined to forward where Nathan Dundas kicked Alexandra's sixth goal. Despite the margin at three-quarter time, Alex continued the effort and the hard tackling asked for by Sam at the break paid off for Cooper who goaled from his efforts. Brayden Norris followed up with a long goal from the bottom side before Seville replied and added their 19th goal at the 20-minute mark. Ryley Norris continued his attack on the ball and Heard kept presenting and kicked a third goal late in the term but the very accurate Seville with dominant forwards were far too good winning comfortably 19.8 (122) to Alexandra 9.9 (63).

ALEXANDRA FOOTBALLNETBALL CLUB REPORTS SATURDAY

■ The AFL Yarra Ranges League Round 9 of the 2017 season last Saturday saw the Rebels travel to Seville for two games of football and two games of netball, the oval in good condition and the weather was perfect for football and netball. RESERVES The Reserves were a patched-up side due to injuries and players unavailable through work and other commitments and unfortunately allowed the home side to establish what was to be a match winning break before the Rebels realised that they themselves could be most competitive. The experienced Corey Jack along with Chase Pearce set the standard early whilst Jedd Hamill provided a target up forward as Alex fought back in the second quarter to trail by only 7 points at half-time. Despite the efforts of David Bourke and Jake Coulson in the midfield the home side took a 19- point lead into the last quarter as Alex had missed opportunities provided from up field. Alex finished the game much better than the Blues and was perhaps unlucky to lose narrowly. Hamill finished with 4 after 2 last quarter goals and the Rebels were in attack when the siren sounded leaving them four points short 8.7 (55) to Seville 9.5 (59). Awards: Caltex $25 fuel card - Corey Jack, Alex Sportspower $20 award - Jake Coulson, Hoova's @ Mt.Pleasant $20 meal - Chase Pearce, Corner Hotel $20 meal - David Bourke, Corner Hotel 5 pots - Jedd Hamill. SENIORS The Seniors made five changes to the team
