● Graeme Chisholm

■ One of Yea’s largest funeral services in memory was conducted at the Shire Hall on Thursday (June 29) to celebrate the life of Graeme John Chisholm, 55. ‘Chissy’ was killed in a tragic farm accident at Limestone. A crowd estimated at 800 attended the service led by Country Fire Authority Chaplain, the Rev. Geoffrey Leslie. The eulogy was delivered by Graeme’s brotherin-law, Allan McLeish. Tributes were offered by wife Karen Chisholm, friend Ian Gorman, son Andrew Chisholm, and long-time business partner Ross Shaw (words spoken by his daughter). Neil Beer, Past Group Officer and CFALife Member, delivered the CFA tribute, following a request from Rod Carbis, Yea Captain. Repeated themes were Graeme’s genuine cheerfulness, honesty and ethic of service. He came in touch with many people in all walks of life. Each speaker told of the tremendous respect in

which ‘Chissy’ was held. It had been an honour to know him, and work alongside him. A grand show of respect was demonstrated as CFA and other emergency service colleagues formed a guard-of-honour in High St, Yea, stretching from the Shire Hall to beyond the fountain. The cortege made its way along High St, Yea; past the Chisholm and Shaw premises; along Snodgrass St, pausing alongside the Yea CFA headquarters where the bell tolled the traditional three times. A guard-of-honour was also formed at the Yea Cemetery. Yea Football-Netball Club members also saluted their colleague. Club members and Limestone Fresh catered and served after the service. Alexandra CFA volunteers manned the Yea CFA HQ during Thursday morning;Kilmore CFA members were on duty on Thursday afternoon. ● Turn To Page 12

Kinglake Councillor blames the press ‘Margaret Abbey is fantastic’

● Margaret Abbey, Murrindindi Shire CEO ■ Cr Leigh Dunscombe told last week’s Murrindindi Shire Council meeting that the efforts of $250,000-a-year CEO Margaret Abbey were “fantastic”. Cr Dunscombe, the Kinglake Ward Councillor, voted to Council last October, included the Council staff in his unqualified praise. “I again congratulate Margaret Abbey and her entire team on their fantastic efforts over the past six months and feel that we can all hold our heads high in the knowledge that we are all delivering and will continue to deliver on our commitments,” Cr Dunscombe said. “I am encouraged by an increasing sense of enthusiasm throughout the shire and am pleased that we have been able to demonstrate that we are listening.” Cr Dunscombe’s comments about the “fantastic” Ms Abbey and her entire team come soon after the Council was given a dismal 45 per cent satisfaction rating on consultation and engagement matters by Murrindindi ratepayers, shown at the State Government’s ‘Know Your Council’ website. This rating is 10 percentage points less than the Victorian State average of 55 per cent. An even worse result is the current 42 per cent satisfaction rating issued by local residents about “community satisfaction with council decisions”. The Council itself noted: “This result is below the small rural average for 2015-16 and a 5 point decrease from 2014-15 and may reflect a response by the community to the decision made by Council with regard to application for a rate cap variation for 2016-17.” Cr Dunscombe’s analysis last week follows the announcement only weeks earlier that Ms Abbey will leave the CEO appointment later this year to take on an internationally-based position in charge of a lace and bobbin guild. Council’s personnel turnover, usually an indicator of staff morale, has been abnormally high, according to the Shire’s reports.

‘We will also no doubt need to prepare ourselves to do some explaining when the first budget update is released. It will show that the forecast deficit has increased by a further $2.4 million.’ - Cr Dunscombe ■ Kinglake Ward Councillor Leigh Dunscombe says there has been misrepresentation in the press about Murrindindi Shire’s 2 per cent rates increase. “These figures have been misrepresented in the press with the implication that a 3 per cent increase in overall rate revenue in the budget equates to a 3 per cent increase in people’s rates,” Cr Dunscombe told last Wednesday night’s Council meeting held at Alexandra. “The fact that a 1 per cent growth factor is built into the budget forecast, it seems, was overlooked,” Cr Dunscombe said. Cr Dunscombe became defensive about the Council’s ‘Have Your Say’ survey, which The Local Paper reported had failed to engaged with 89 per cent of the population. “With what is widely regarded in the survey industry as a fantastic response rate of over 10 per cent with a good spread of age group and localities, it is fair to say we were able to garner a very good understanding of our communities wishes and aspirations, and build them into the development process of both the Council Plan and Budget.” Cr Dunscombe issued a warning: “We will also no doubt need to prepare ourselves to do some explaining when the first budget update is released. “It will show that the forecast deficit has increased by a further $2.4 million . “This is due to the fact that half of the budgeted financial grant funding for 2017-18 has already been received in this current financial year. “The fact that this also means that the forecast deficit for the current financial year suddenly becomes a significant surplus, could and most likely will be overlooked and hard to understand by some,” Cr Dunscombe predicted. Cr Dunscombe told the Shire meeting that the Council Plan and

Pop-up “The two documents along with others represent more than six stalls at community markets and months of intensive work and I am events, print, social and radio prosure that I speak on behalf of all the motions, community workshops, Councillors in thanking the entire school visits and more - and the remanagement and staff of the sults speak for themselves,” Cr Murrindindi Shire Council for their Dunscombe said. “We have listened and continue efforts, assistance and dedication to to listen to and seek the thoughts and the task. “As a new Council we placed sig- ideas of our communities. “We have heard that we need to nificant extra demands on the Council staff in preparation of these docu- focus on rates, infrastructure, tourism and economic development. ments. “We have heard that we need to “We are determined and adamant in our desire to do everything we build on and nurture our natural encould to ensure that these documents vironment, to facilitate employment be prepared with the wishes and as- and encourage business investment pirations of our communities at the and to continue to provide the crucial forefront of our thinking and as such community services on which many instructed Margaret Abbey and her in our communities rely. “These themes have all been built team to embark on the biggest community engagement project the into our Council Plan and Budget and will continue to be at the forefront of our thinking over the next four years. “An early indication of our commitment to these themes is reflected in the budget with an effective rate increase of only 1.8 per cent (below the state legislated rate cap of 2 per cent) and the freezing of rates for 12 months for commercial properties,” Cr Dunscombe said. “We are also having very productive Council initiated conversations with the new General Managers and Chief Executive Officers of Lake Mountain Resort, GoulburnMurray Water and VicRoads over a range of projects and hope to deliver ● The Local Paper (May 10) was clear in its some updates soon,” Cr Dunsreporting that a 2 per cent rate increase was likely. combe told the meeting.


Stockholm syndrome question ■ The ‘Stockholm syndrome’is a condition that causes hostages to develop a psychological alliance with their captors as a survival strategy during captivity. The ‘Stockhom syndrome’ is the concept that comically came to mind when The Local Paper saw the excited language being used last month by Murrindindi Shire Councillors about their four-year plan. Led by Mayor Cr Charlie Bisset, the seven councillors stated in print that they were “thrilled” about the blueprint that they were putting before the ratepayers of the shire. No matter that the plan includes a deficit budget in each of the following 10 years of $½-million in each 12-month period. It seemed quite incedible that Councillors, elected as trustees of the people’s assets, would be “thrilled” about a looming $5 million deficit. No matter that, at that stage, it would appear that the 2016-17 Council budget would blow-out from a $1000 surplus to an unplanned $1.1 million loss. Murrindindi Shire’s current bunch of seven councillors stood at last October’s elections, promising a new approach. Leigh Dunscombe appealed to voters last year when he stated prior to the election: “"What I can commit to is passionate advocacy to put the Kinglake Ward back on the map." (The Local Paper, Sept. 28). The following week, he said: “I feel that the major problem with politics at the moment is that there are too many, dare I say it, politicians. “(They are) motivated by power, notoriety and or financial gain; they are not in it to serve the people, they are in it for whatever they can get out of it. “They seek the limelight and are happy to claim any success as their own,” Dunscombe said (The Local Paper, Oct. 5). Last week, in our opinion, saw Cr Dunscombe straddle a line. Councillors must be armslength superintendents of the work of Council’s CEO and her staff. Cr Dunscombe appeared as their mate. He described their work as “fantastic”. He used the same word to describe Council’s survey. Trustees or Council sales representatives?

Translator delay ● Chrissi and Doug, as Two Pickled ● Christine Ridd ■ The Whanregarwen-Molesworth community has lost one of its real characters with the shock passing last week of Christine Ridd. Daughter Eboney Sutherland announced on Thursday (June 29): “At 3.30pm today my beautiful mum took her last breath. “I held her hand right up until the end. There are no words for how I feel at the moment. “Mum was one in a million a beautiful soul taken way too soon. I'm utterly devastated as is the rest of my family. Forever in our hearts and forever on our minds.” Chrissi and husband Doug ran the Two Pickled foods business from their local property in recent years. Chrissi had previously worked at the Outdoor Education Group, Rubicon, and the Bank of New South Wales. She was educated at Thornbury High School. More importantly, Chrissi educated many of us, especially with her humour and her spirit. In almost another life, Chrissi and Doug would join a Friday night crew at the Morris Family’s Molesworth Hotel in the late 1980s-early 1990s. There, we created a series of ‘Superman’ front-page ads to describe Doug’s handymanuseful man services throughout the district. In a funny email to Long Shots not so long ago, Chrissi remembered those days at what is now the ‘Hungry Horse Hotel’. “Back in our day it was the Thirsty Bull,” she said.

Letters to the Editor

Umbrage at Cr Rae Sir, I take umbrage at the comment in the ‘Snippets’column (Local Paper, June 7) by Cr Margaret Rae regarding the Kinglake West service station. The remark that “we must allow for progress to occur” comes across as a bit condescending. The desired object of the Council is that we all have the opportunity to build with due consideration for neighbours and neighbourhoods, to maintain the integrity and lifestyle for now and the future. The Council’s duty of care to ratepayers is to fairly represent the concerns and good of the community, protective (of) what we have, reducing what we take, and minimisingwhat we impact on. What a shame Council lost sight of the above objectives when pushing through the above service station’s permit. Yes, I did object top the service station in its current form, but I am not opposed to future development to our area as long as it is done sympathetically. The word sympathetically obviously does not exist in the Council or the so-called Planning Department’s vocabulary at present. Interestingly, I had to read about the permit approval in The Local Paper instead of receiving confirmation via an official letter from Council. So much for common courtesy, probably too busy gloating over how much revenue this latest approval will generate. - Glenda Annal, 1358 Whittlesea-Yea Rd, Kinglake West

Plan for health

Council News

Lording surrenders independent stance OPINION by Ash Long ■ Over a local newspaper career of 40 years, I have reported on hundreds of Council meetings in areas including Yea, Alexandra, Whittlesea, Upper Yarra, Seymour and Nagambie. On a number of occasions over the decades, I am convinced that some Councillors moved or seconded motions, simply to have their names recorded in the Minutes ... and the local press. Eric Lording, the King Parrot Ward Councillor on Murrindindi Shire Council is not such a Councillor. Cr Lording has prized his independent status as a Councillor, and even went to a State Parliamentary committee to give evidence against Murrindindi Council. Cr Lording stood on the ‘independence’ platform at the October elections last year, and he was elected unopposed. Eric Lording was hopeful of being Mayor of Murrindindi Shire, when the vote was taken late last year. Instead, Cr Charlie Bisset

● Cr Eric Lording and Cr Sandice McAulay secured the numbers, and took on the Mayoralty and Deputy positions respectively. Cr Lording, at first, tried to flex independent political muscle, but was thwarted at each turn. Cr Lording put forward a motion that The Local Paper be added to the Council’s public notices publishing arrangements. His motive was to ensure that residents of Kinglake,

Kinglake West, Pheasant Creek, Toolangi, Glenburn, Strath Creek and Flowerdale had weekly communication from the Shire. Lording’s initiative was effectively scuttled. Council executives only use The Local Paper for a minimal schedule of essential public notices. Last month saw Cr Eric Lording lock himself into a position of unity with his six Councillor colleagues. Cr Lording said at a June special meeting of Council that he was proud to be part of the Shire’s statutory plan for the next four years. The plan includes provision for a $½-million deficit in each of the next 10 years. The Alexandra Standard and Yea Chronicle newspapers report that Cr Lording said that the Plan produced by a team effort “and that he fully supported it”. The four-year plan, and the 2017-18 budget (which is to run at a substantial deficit), were adopted with a unanimous vote of Councillors. Cr Lording has effectively surrendered his proclaimed independence towards Council finances for the four-years ahead.

Aunty Lee shares indigenous stories ■ Aunty Lee Healy, a Taungurang elder, is presenting stories about Our Languages Matter at local libraries to tie in with the NAIDOC (originally stood for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Day). Indigenous story times started yesterday (Tues.) at Kinglake Library, with further sessions at Yea Library (Wed., 11am) and Alexandra Library (Thurs., 11am). The Indigenous Literacy Cards were due to be launched yesterday (Tues.) at Kinglake Library.

● Aunty Lee Healy

Deputy Mayor Cr Sandice McAulay told last week’s Murrindindi Council meeting, as part of her Community Services portfolio, that the Telstra Tech Savvy Seniors program of ‘up-skilling’ is underway. The program is to “empower” senior citizens to make use of their devices and gain access to the Murrindindi Library Service growing e-resources. Training sessions will be held at Kinglake at 2pm on July 18, and at Alexandra by arrangement.

■ Murrindindi Council’s Health and Wellbeing Plan is being developed, Deputy Mayor Cr Sandice McAulay said that community service partners and stakeholders have been identified and invited to participate in two half-day workshops on July 13 and 18. “Recreation and Open Plan strategic actions will also be included in the plan. Four two-hour workships are planned to consult with recreation groups and sporting clubs,” Cr McAulay said. Locations for workshops, to be held this month, are Marysville, Alexandra, Yea and Kinglake.

GV Water meetings ■ “Productive meetings have been held with Goulburn-Murray Water,” Mayor Cr Charlie Bisset told last weel’s meeting of Murrindindi Council. Cr Bisset said there are mutually benefical outcomes for both organisations. The Water organisation has a new Board Chair, and a new General Manager.

Think Tanks ■ Murrindindi Council executive Stuart McConnell and staff have received recognition for their work in regard to ‘Think Tanks’ held last month. Cr Charlie Bisset said outcomes were fed into the draft Council Plan. These looked at economic development, tourism and events, and Council being easier to deal with. She said that ‘Think Tanks’ were held for Industry and Business, and Tourism Eventys stakeholders. “Councillors in attendance were able to hear first hand from these important groups and individuals.”

EPA approves ■ The new Leachate Pond at the Alexandra landfill has been approved by the Environmental Protection Authority, Cr Eric Lording told last week’s Council meeting. New arrangements avoids cost for disposal of the the leachate. Murrindindi Council is working in cooperation with Mitchell and Strathbogie Councils on a grant application for a joint waste education program.

Not present ■ Cr Jackie Ashe was not present at last week’s Murrindindi Shire Council meeting held at Alexandra. Cr Ashe was also not present for a special meeting of Council held in June. Chief Executive Officer Margaret Abbey also apologised for her non-attendance at the June 28 meeting.

Visit to Stanhope ■ Cr Eric Lording mad a visit to the new 200-acre organic recycling plant at Stanhope. Cr Lording told Murrindindi Council that he was impressed with the State Minister’s understanding of the needs of waste disposal. Cr Lording is a member of the Goulburn Valley Waste and Recovery Group Board and Forum.

Speakers at forum ■ Graeme Harris spoke against a proposal for two dwellings and two-lot subdivision at Marysville, at last week’s meeting of Council held at Alexandra. Also speaking against the proposal was Nicholas Jans and Richard Holland. Peter Johnson spoke in support. The four speakers were each allowed five minutes to address Councillors.

● One side of the guard-of-honour by emergency services personnel in honour of Graeme Chisholm at Yea on Thursday Photos: Edward Vanderende ● From, Page 5 Graeme John Chisholm was born on January 9, 1962. He was the only son of Don and Moireen, and brother of Patricia and Donna. From an early age he had an interest in firefighting, and under a father-son rule at the time was able to join the Country Fire Authority in 1976. He served first in the Highlands-Caveat Brigade. This meant that Graeme was presented with his 40-year service medal as a CFA volunteer. Graeme had received his National Emergency Medal in 2014, and had served with distinction in the 2009 ‘Black Saturday’ fires. His turnouts to road rescue and emergency calls was legendary.

Dead koala sparks debate about timber harvesting ■ Discovery of a dead koala in a timber harvesting area of the Acheron Valley has renewed calls for a Great Forest National Park from Kinglake to Baw Baw and back to Eildon. Vic Forests has apologised for the death of the koala in one of its logging coupes. The Sunday Age has championed the cause, and reported last weekend that VicForests continued harvesting in an area that is home to the endangered GreaterGlider. The koala was found crushed, after the government reportedly went against its own advice to protect the land from logging. The Sunday Age said: “After graphic images were published in the media, VicForests sent a letter to stakeholders admitting its procedures to pro-

had failed, and "we deeply regret that this has happened".” "VicForests follows procedures in its timber harvesting operations for the protection of koalas and unfortunately these were not successful on this occasion," wrote Acting Chief Executive Nathan Trushell. "This is the first time we have seen this and we are taking this incident very seriously. “We have commenced an investigation into this issue to fully understand the circumstances. “When the investigation is complete we will consider any necessary changes to our procedures to minimise the risk of this happening again," said Mr Trushell, according to The Sunday Age. “The government is also examining the matter and awaiting the findings of an autopsy,” the newspaper said.

What The Papers Say Health popular

■ It seems more school students than ever are considering a career in the health industry. Seymour’s GOTAFE campus is enjoying its biggest ever intake of VET in Schools (VETiS) students in its health course, with this year’s cohort of 26 students keen to pursue a career in nursing, physio, dietetics and even mental health. ‘‘The course’s popularity has just gone up and up,’’ teacher Selina Bennett said. - Seymour Telegraph

Albino roo moved

■ A rare white kangaroo was moved from the site where another roo was shot and tied to a chair in Mernda, to keep her safe. ‘Whitey’, an albino kangaroo, and her family was moved last month after being discovered fenced into a small patch of land near the proposed Hawkestowe station site. Wildlife Victoria chief executive Karen Masson said Whitey was moved because she could’ve been a target for illegal roo killers. - Whittlesea Leader

Cash for netballers

■ The Euroa Junior Football Club will receive $826 for their new female side thanks to VicHealth’s latest round of Active Club Grants. Steph Ryan (MLA, Euroa) congratulated the team on their successful application saying it was wonderful to see the new girls’ team receiving support - Euroa Gazette

Crime up 16.2 p.c.

■ Crime in Mansfield rose 16.2 per cent in the year, up 93 offences from 573 in 2016 to 666 in 2017. The rise equates to an increase of around one offence every four days in the shire.

Campbell was in the chair Those present were unanimously of the opinion. that a club be formed. Various sites were disIussed for a liinks and it was decided, to ask the Park Committee if it had any objec tion to portion of thePark being used. It was resolved that pending the acquisition of a linksMr. Learmouth and Mr LPointer be asked for pi ermission to play on their properties. Mr ,L: Clark said that portion of his property could be used: For the present seasons Mr W. Andrew will allow playeirs to use his private links and it is here: that the first tournamnent. will be held on Saturday, details being advertised in this issue.

Janefield concert ■ A concert of outstanding merit was held in the Unity hall Iast Saturday night in aid of the Janefield Presbyterian Church. The Garden Vale Dramatic Company staged a very amusing comedy, they were assisted by Mrs Turley (Mernda), Miss Wood (Yan Yean), and Master Ian Raft (Janefield), and Mrs Dare, accompaniste. The function was organised by Mrs Raff, of Janefleld.

Glenburn Road ■ A wide variety of subjects was dealt with by members of the Eltham Council at the meeting on Monday. With the exception of Cr Price, who was indisposed, there was a full attendance of members. While the council was dealing with accounts, Cr Irvine raised the question on account of £12. for T. Wood for use of truck at 4/4 an hour. It would appear he said that the truck was used ito pick up backing at Yarra Glen. A dray or even barrows were all that was necessary. £100 was set aside for the work on the Yarra Glen-Glenburn road and yet the work of all the other men with the exception of the foreman came to no more th an the £12 for the hire of the truck for doing work which could have been done witha dray or barrows.

Catholic Ball

■ When it's fog-time on the Goulburn conditions are far from pleasant, but nearly three hundred dancers turned up at the Shire Hall for the annual Catholic ball on Wednesday night, and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. At one time promoters of similar functions were much concerned as to an insurance policy against rain, but this year a new terror appeared in the shape of regular fogs, and on Wednesday the astronomical calculations as to the time for the sun to set were doubtless correct as far as some parts of the State were concerned, but impossible to verify at Alexandra. At 4 p.m. the fog descended and in an hour's time it had reduced visibility to a minimum. It was the worst fog Alexandra had experienced for many years, and naturally it reduced the attendance at the ball to a certain extent, as road conditions were by no means satisfactory for motor car drivers. In addition, it was bitterly cold.

Hurstbridge notes ■ Members of the Hurstbridge Croquet Club are gratified that a fence is to be erected around ,their croquet lawn, which will prevent people walking over it, and stop animals from making holes in the ground.

Local History

Kinglake’s fight for a railway line ■ Whilst nearby lines opened in succession, Kinglake was unable to obtain the railway link to Melbourne that it so wanted. Victorian Railways Commissioners opened lines to Yea (November 16, 1883), Yarra Glen (May 15, 1888) and Whittlesea (1889). Kinglake’s only link was through its Timber Tramway that had a link to a siding at the Whittlesea Railway Station. Kinglake locals held out hope that the Hurst’s Bridge line that opened on June 25, 1912 (renamed as Hurstbridge on December 9 of the same year) might be extended to the top of the mountain. The Evelyn Observer newspaper reported on October 19, 1883, that a deputation representing Alphington, Heidelberg, Greensborough, Eltham, Nillumbik, Diamond Creek, Kangaroo Ground, Caledonia and Kinglake, met with the Commissioner of Railways. The depuattion comprise Messrs. P. W. Smith, John Donldson, Crisp, Jos. Blond, Studley, Scotland, Iredale, Flintoff, Wingrove, Wippell, Peers, N. Ellis, Cumming, John Bell, Robert Smith, and Staff accompanied by Dr. Dobson and Mr. Balfour, M.LC.'s, and Mr. Harper, M.L.A., introduced by Mr. E. H. Cameron. “The deputation, who took it for granted that the extension of the rail way from Alphington to Heidelberg was a certainty, asked that a survey be made from Heidelberg to pass midway between Greensborough and Eltham, thence up the valley of the Diamond Creek,” reported the Evelyn Observer, then headquartered at Kangaroo Ground. “The population on this route, within a radius of five miles was given at 3500. The mining portion at 270, and the amount of gold obtained during the quarter ended 30th September last, was 1095 ozs., value, £4880. “There were four crushing machines and a couple more likely shortly to be erected. “It was also pointed out that within the same radius there were 40,000 acres of alienated land, a great deal of which was purchased at prices from £1 to £5 some 35 or 40 years ago, and all small holdings, hence the larger population, who were occupied principally on the land producing a large quantity of fruit and cereals “It was contended that the valley of the Diamond was famous for the quantity and quality of the fruit grown. It was also mentioned that the timber forest could be reached

Local History ● From Page 15 “The people in that district were in favour of the Kinglake route, and if it could be obtained they would render all available assistance,” the Evelyn Observer reported. In 1889, Mr J.L. Beale, writing from ‘Longwood’, Kinglake, to John Herbert, of the Arthur’s Creek League, asked for the districts to work together. “The understanding was that the different leagues should all pull together, in seeking to get a line of railway consttucted from Heidelberg, Eltham, and Diamond township up the valley of the Diamond and Arthur's Creeks to Kinglake. Now, sir, I hope you will see that both Arthur's Creek and Queenstown have done their duty in showing Mr. Field (surveyor) all they were capable of doing for the benefit of all parties right through to Kinglake, thereby pulling together most assuredly.” Meetings, on a seemingly monthly basis, were called, with a June 1889 gathering assembled at Panton Hill, with another soon after at Kangaroo Ground, then a further meeting at Queenstown. “Mr. David Smith pointed out that about eight years ago a railway meeting was held in Queenstown,” reported the Evelyn Observer “Mr. Cameron was present and he then said that a line should be brought to Queenstown. “He (Mr. Smith) was at a loss to understand why the Arthur's Creek folk were clamouring for a line on their side when they must know that the route to Kinglake via Queenstown was more practicable. “There must be some influence at work to have even a flying survey up Arthur's Creek. Queenstown thoroughly deserved to have a line. “In America the railways were made to induce people to settle. In some parts the lines were constructed with but a very scanty population,” the Evelyn Observer noted. In June 1889, the press commentary recorded: “Mr. Beale was of opinion that united and determined notion should he taken at once. The matter swas of such iniportance to the district that a deputation should interview the Minister of Railways at the earliest possible date. “Mr Verso said that Queenstown had a prior right for railway accommodation to Arthur's Creek. The Whittlesea line was distant only three and a half miles, and it was absurd for the Arthur' Creek people to agitate for a line to be constructed almost parallel with it. “It was advisable to work amicably with the Arthur's Creek League, but at the same time it was necessary to let every one see that the Queenstown League was earnest in the matter. “He (Mr. Verso) would like to see an intermediate line constructed. “He would do all in his power to have such a line carried out. They must not fail to agitate. They must insist upon the line going to Kinglake. “If they didn't get their wishes complied with now they would have to wait years before such an opportunity as the present would again present itself.” Everyone wanted a railway line. A Kangaroo Ground meeting spoke of a line to Christmas Hills. One year later, in July 1890, the Observer detailed that “a largely attended meeting, at which Eltham, Greensborough, Diamond Creek, Queenstown, Arthur's Creek, Kinglake, and Panton Hill were represented, was held in the Nillumbik Mechanics' Institute on Saturday afternoon last.

It was grand country, there was no better land in Victoria for growing potatoes. Vegetables and fruit were also grown in abundance. “'The settlers were an industrious people, but they required the means of getting their products to market. “Mr Hunt said. that he had spent a good deal of money many years ago in mining in the locality, and still believed in its aurifer resources. “Mr. Beale, a settler of 30 years, described its timber resources as enormous. They had to slave to clear their lands from the timber, which was now destroyed, but would be a valuable asset if there was a railway. “Clearing at present cost £12 per acre. If the timber could be made available by means of a railway, the cost.would be reduced to about half. There was also about 20,000 acres of Crown lands, equal in quality to what had been alienated. “Dr. Mclnerney, who stated that he had owned land in the district for the last 30 years, and that there was a tree at his front door over 50 feet in circumference, descanted on the fertility and scenic reauty of the locality. “Mr. Bent said he would think the matter over, and let Mr. Cameron know in a week or two whether he would send the proposal on to the Railways Standing Committee for consideration or not. “He would also make inquirles about the Crown lands. It was, without doubt, a good part of the country, but the land would have to be leaded, The newspaper’s Panton Hill correspondent observed: “Now that Kinglake people are agitating for a railway, the people of the Diamond Creek valley should press for the construction of the Elthamn-Hurst's Bridge extension, which might eventually be carried on to Kinglake. Of the three routes suggested by the Kinglake deputation to the Premier, the Hurst's Bridge extension would provide a natural outlet for the producers of Kinglake, who, though only 35 miles from Melbourne, are .practically hundreds of miles distant. In February 1908, the Evelyn Observer recorded: “no answer has been received re the Premier's decision. It is to be hoped that the longexpected answer will soon arrive. Tommy Bent was Victorian Premier only until January 1909. He died on September 17, 1909, partly as the result of the strain of facing a Royal Commission to investigate allegations of corruption and irregularity in government land purchases. To Be Continued

Local News

Ex-Councillor due to face Court today ■ Former Murrindindi Shire Councillor Chris Healy is due to face the Mansfield Magistrates’ Court today (Wed.). Mr Healy faces five charges related to alleged occurrences of misuse of position. The Local Government Investigations and Compliance Inspectorate alleges that as a former councillor, on five separate occasions, Mr Healy attempted to gain an advantage by making improper use of information acquired while a councillor in written or oral submissions regarding Murrindindi Shire’s proposed rating strategy. The Inspectorate began its investigation in March 2015. This investigation took a considerable time to complete. The In-

● Former Eildon Cr, Chris Healy

spectorate says this was due to the complex analysis of documents and the prioritisation of investigations into election offences in 2016. Mr Healy is expected to be represented by Greg George of Tehan George & Co. The Inspectorate has filed the charges in relation to alleged misuse of position under section 76D(1) of the Local Government Act 1989. “Misuse of position carries a serious penalty under the Act of 600 penalty units ($93,276) or up to five years imprisonment or both ... the Sentencing Act 1991 gives a magistrate discretion to reduce any penalty imposed on the accused,” said the Inspectorate.

Curse is farmers’ horror: Bowles ■ Purple flowers of 'Paterson's Curse' are a horror to local farmers, according to Murrindindi Shire's Natural Environment and Climate Change Portfolio Councillor Rebecca Bowles. "Paterson's Curse is native to Western Europe and the Mediterranean. It is a conspicuous plant, flowering in late winter through to early spring, and is often seen on the hills and slopes around the district,"

Cr Bowles said. "It is a noxious weed and is classified as a 'Regionally Controlled Weed', which means landowners must take all reasonable steps to eradicate these weeds on their land. "While this plant has a seemingly pretty flower, it is also poisonous to our livestock, in particular to our horses, as well as our cattle, sheep, goats and pigs. "It is a widespread, trouble-

some weed usually found in degraded pastures, grasslands, bushland, roadsides and disturbed sites. It can establish large populations rapidly, competing vigorously with desirable pasture species or smaller indigenous plants and impede over storey regeneration," Cr Bowles said. "It is problematic due to its prolific seed production, producing more than 5000 seeds per plant per year.”

■ Police are investigating an armed robbery on an adult store in South Morang last month. Investigators have been told a male entered the Oleander Drive business about 6.17pm on June 11. The man returned at 7.40pm, walked around the counter with a small axe in his hand and removed a quantity of cash from the till before leaving the store. The man is described as Caucasian, 180cm tall, large build and was wearing a grey jumper over a high vis hooded top

Timber mill sold ■ The owners of Australian Sustainable Hardwoods have confirmed that an in-principle agreement has been reached with the government in respect to the sale of ASH. Both parties say they are committed to finalising the sale before the end of July. “We confirm that there will be no job losses while contractual negotiations are finalised,” said a company spokesman. “We are not in a position to disclose the details on the terms of the sale.”

New phone towers ■ Indi MHRCathy McGowan joined a community event at Howqua on Monday morning, celebrating the official launch of the first of eight new mobile phone towers in Mansfield Shire. The tower was the fourth to come online of 38 towers allocated to Indi under the Federal Government’s Mobile Blackspot Program. Tolmie, Goughs Bay, Sawmill Settlement, Ancona and Woods Point are set to follow in the coming months, Ms McGowan said.

Marysville move

■ Murrindindi Shire Council has given approval to the redevelopment of the building formerly known as the Maryville Rebuilding Advisory Centre to establish the new Marysville Tourism and Arts Centre. Council gave its final approval for the project at its meeting on June 18, based on an agreement between the project partners these being the Marysville Triangle Business and Tourism Association (MTBT), the Marysville Cultural Community, the TriangleArts Group and the Triangle Community Steelbands. Redevelopment will include the redesign of the visitor information facilities and the creation of theatre space with sliding walls and removable stage to enable art exhibition, performance and a range of other uses. The new Centre will also include a multi-use community room, an art workshop space, community meeting rooms, more storage space and a new entrance to the building.

YEA FOOTBALL CLUB REPORT SENIORS Yea 7.5 (47) defeated by Belgrave 27.17 (179) Yea copped one of its heaviest defeats of the season, going down to a sharp Belgrave outfit by 132 points at the Recreation Reserve. The first quarter was frenetic, with the visitors slamming on nine majors and the home side managing three of their own, before a six goalto-two second term gifted the Magpies a 73point lead at the major break. Although the Tigers scored just two goals after half time, there were enough encouraging signs from the younger players to suggest that there are bright times ahead. Cameron Evans played his best game this year through the midfield, while Dan O'Dwyer took plenty of marks and drove the ball constantly out of defence. Cam Ryan also spent more in the middle of the ground in a breakout performance in the senior team. Shaun Pearce (three goals) was the prime target in attack, Trent McMahon continued his strong run of form in a new role at half back and Harrison Jarvie was consistent as always, toiling away on the ball. While the scoreboard made for a poor showing, Yea refused to go into their shells and kept bringing the ball through the corrodor, let down only by some basic skill errors but attempting to play their brand of football. Once again it was the heavier, more experienced bodies of the opposition that made life hard for the Tigers, with the ability to break tackles and win contested ball in tight a feature of Belgrave's game. Yea will be at home again this week against Powelltown. Yea. Goalkickers: S. Pearce 3, P. Evans 2, A. McSpeerin, R. Aldous. Best Players: D. O''Dwyer, C. Evans, H. Jarvie, L. Beattie, C. Ryan, T.

YEA FOOTBALL CLUB REPORT RESERVES Yea 2.1 (13) defeated by Belgrave 16.9 (105) It was a one-sided affair on the scoreboard but Yea gave its all against an impressive Belgrave unit, eventually falling short by 92 points. The first quarter was fascinating, with the Magpies ruthlessly efficient (four goals straight) holding the hosts scoreless despite the ball spending much periods of time locked in the Tigers’ front-half of the ground. The visitors took further control in the second term, slotting six goals and again denying Yea a single point to take a commanding lead heading into the major change. The second-half was more pleasing for the home side, with the Tigers getting on the board through Darcy Pell and Andrew Butterworth (one goal each) while slowing the opposition's scoring significantly. Jack Sundblom was super impressive at centre half back and proved a brick wall against the Magpies midfielders, Lindon Young knocked up finding the football and Ant Murray won a series of one-on-one contests in another fine performance. Butterworth was very good in the air and on the deck, and Ryan Akers was the general in defence, while Jaryed Garlick worked tirelessly through the middle of the ground. The loss sees the Tigers fall a game behind fifth placed Seville, but with the bye still up their sleeve. Yea will be desperate to close the gap when they clash with Powelltown at the Recreation Reserve this weekend. Yea. Goalkickers: D. Pell, A. Butterworth. Best Players: J. Sundblom, A. Butterworth, A.

■ Kate Elliott notched up her 100th game for the Yea Tigers on Saturday against Belgrave. Kate played juniors early for the Tigers before heading away to boarding school. She returned and commenced playing senior netball for Yea back in 2010, starting the season in BGrade before being elevated to A-Grade. Perhaps Kate’s most memorable game that season was the preliminary final at Healesville where she came on to replace an injured Megan Leatham. The game against Seville was tight and Kate made an immediate impact, shooting goal after goal to help the side progress into the Grand Final, unfortunately the side went down to Powelltown in overtime on the big day. Over the next seven years she has had a couple of seasons off, 2013 to become a mum to dear little Ollie, but since then has been a valued member in the C- and B-Grade sides. The ultimate prize was put her around her neck in 2015, a premiership medal in the BGrade win over Emerald by one goal. Kate has and continues to be a very versatile mid courter and goal thrower, her speed and smarts giving her the edge over her opponents. Congratulations Kate on 100 terrific games for Yea and we look forward to seeing many more.

Right from the beginning Belgrave came out and applied an enormous amount of pressure. The Tigers didn't hesitate, they simply just chipped away and tried their hardest. All 10 girls showed encouragement and most of all a smile. Bad luck girls in a tough game, we look forward to Powelltown this week. Powelltown sit in fourth position on the ladder with Yea sitting just behind in fifth place. It will be a much needed win for the Tigers to secure a place in the top fove. Last time A-Grade came up against Powelltown they fell away by just seven goals. Since then Yea have come together and are definitely a better team, leaving nothing in the tank each week. After Belgrave, all girls walked away and held their heads high and now look forward to the rest of the season. Belgrave 89 def Yea 10 Goals: M. Sundblom 5, C. Spagnolo 3, N. Watts 1, M. Leatham 1.

Belgrave continued on strongly in the second quarter and the Tigers tried to hold on, the girls doing a brilliant job in defence to stop as many entries as possible. By half-time the visitors had skipped out to a 12-goal lead. Yea had a fantastic third quarter, showing some great passages of play and working their way right back into the game. At one point the Tigers had reduced the margin back to six, ending up eight down at the last break. Belgrave started the last quarter well and shot the first six goals of the quarter, putting a dampener on any chance Yea held. To their credit the girls held their heads high and fought it right out, eventually losing by 17 goals. The Tigers sit in third position, three games clear of fourth. Next week they take on seventh- placed Powelltown, which is always a tough encounter, no matter the ladder positions. Belgrave 62 def Yea 45 Goals: C. Hayes 22, R. Bell 14, A. Akers 9 Best: R.

It was a great game by the Tigers, contesting every ball, moving well and passing appropriately. Unfortunately, Belgrave were just that bit better on the day. Last time we met, the Tigers won by just two goals. We will definitely see Belgrave again during the finals and we all hope that we can come away with the win. We look forward to facing Powelltown this week, as last time we met we came away with a 23 goal win. C-Grade will look to improve even more during the week and really put everything on the court when we face Powelltown. Great job girls, keep up the good work. Belgrave 39 def Yea 27 Goals: F.

The last encounter between these two sides resulted in a draw so it was going to be anyone's game. Yea made a fantastic start to the game in the first quarter, bolting out to an 8-2 goal quarter time lead. Over the next two quarters Belgrave chipped away at the lead, making the most of any Yea errors to eventually take the lead and head the Tigers 18-15 at the last break. Coach Schickerling urged her players to work hard and they rewarded her with the first five goals of the last quarter to regain the lead by two goals. The game went goal for goal from that point on and it was a controlled Yea side that held on for the one-goal win. Yea sits in second position on the ladder, two points behind leaders Yarra Glen. Next weekend the Tigers can almost cement their top three position if they can defeat fifth-placed Powelltown. Yea 24 def Belgrave 23 Goals: A. O'Connor 14, A. Smith Jones 10. Best: S. Lobley, A.

■ The Tigers ventured to Nagambie to take on Tabilk in a danger game for the Yea side with six regulars unavailable. The day was fine but the lazy breeze made for a chilly game.After a scratchy start Wischer finally put the Tigers on the board,followed by one to Wilsmore after a strong mark in the goal square. Both sides were having difficulty with the tricky breeze,making for untidy footy until strong leads and marks to Wischer and Firmin resulted in goals. Quarter-time: Yea 4.2 (26) to Tabilk 0. 1 (1). Kicking against the wind , Turvey goaled early but it was Tabilk who were to dominate the rest of the second quarter. Great tackling pressure from Muller, Hildebrand and J. Harding allowed runners in Charles and Z Harry to clear from defence but the Tigers battled to go beyond the centre.Halftime: Yea 5.2 (32) to Tabilk 3.2 (20). Tabilk were giving the Tigers a run for their money and a big lift was required ,and again it was Firmin and Wischer,who would get the Tigers off to a great start with a couple of long goals.McMaster was coming into the play and after a near miss kicked truly for the Tigers third in the term. The backmen were continuing their excellent defensive pressure to limit their opponents opportunities. J Harry slotted through a clever goal just before the final break to give the boys some breathing space going into the last term. 3/4time: Yea 9.9 (63) to Tabilk 4.3 927). Kicking against the wind the battle was far from over,but Turvey and Wischer had other ideas putting the game out of Tabilk’s reach in the opening minutes. Wilsmore , who was the dominant ruckman on the day chimed in for his second,then another two to Firmin capped of a good day for the Yea boys . Final scores: Yea 14.10 (94) to Tabilk 5.4 (34) A big team effort by the boys without any standout performances,but very pleasing to seeJ

two goals. Caitlyn made great leads and presented well around the ring. Teagan and Ebony rebounded strongly and the teams passing improved this quarter. Vivi was a great back up to Caitlyn who tapped in a loose ball which resulted in Jordan W shooting a goal. All the girls played well but Tabilk managed to come away with the win. Final Score: 28-17. Royal Mail Award : Teagan Britton. Tiger Bucks Award : Jordan Watts and Ebony Edge - Michelle Dolman

Q2. Starting off the second quarter fired up, the girls have had to work hard. Millie (WD) did a fantastic job against her tall opponent. Chloe (GA)and Bridie H (GS) did well, getting the ball down to our goal. Ashley(WA) led to the ball well. All with big smiles as they came off the court, even though the low score. Yea 4,Tabilk 17/ Q3. Nice passing between Millie (WA) and Tilley(C). Chloe was intercepting well. Madeline was getting some nice rebounds. Bridie H (GA) did a great job trying her hardest to get the girls to bring the ball down to her. Millie (WA) was winning the ball this quarter. Bridie Mc (GS) kept everyone on their toes. Yea 4, Tabilk 22 Q4. Chloe (GS) had a fantastic game. Ashlee (C) was keen to keep the game fast flowing, with some high leaping. Time slipped away with no score in the final quarter but the girls were still smiling and should be happy with their ever improving skills. Awards. Royal Mail: Chloe.

■ After the previous week’s loss to St Mary’s, the Tigers needed to get that winning feeling back as they took on Tabilk at Nagambie. The game started with a highly contested ball and it was Tabilk to strike first before Rhys Harding, playing in front took a good grab followed by a high fly from Tyson Garlick who brought the ball to ground as Riley Francombe swept it up and kicked our first. Yea 1.0 (6) - Tabilk 1.1 (7), but Tabilk were too quick on the outside nabbing a two-goal lead into the long break. This brought changes from the coach at half-time seeing our Tigers fight back with two unanswered goals in the third bringing it back to a one point game. Tabilk answered with a quick goal at the start of the final quarter then Yea hit back with one of their own. Tabilk continued to press forward and with a minute to go Riley Slevin went on a courageous run from the back pocket to halfforward being in what seemed like every team mate putting their bodies on the line to create his route only for Tabilk to lock it up just before the siren. A thrilling game to watch that could of gone either way. Tabilk 4.5 (29) defeated Yea 4.2 (26) Goalkickers: R.Francombe 2, R.Slevin 2 Memorable moments: Seeing the communication and trust to put the ball into their captains hand as every player up the line knew their only chance to win was to shield his run up the ground and it nearly paid off. - Greg Philpot


■ Its was -2 degrees when the U10 Tiger Train arrived in Nagambie early Sunday morning; the sun fought hard and was able to warm things up to at least positive figures before we finished. For the first time this season we didn't have the more abundant numbers so the Blues rotated some of theirs through to help us out. This weeks training focus on team work and linkage passages of play was evident against the bigger more physical opposition. Awards this week: Tom White (TigerBucks Award), Sam Charles (TigerBucks Award), William Granter (Klinge Klincher Award), Riley Philpot (MisterMinute Award), Ebony Ockwell (Royal Mail Hotel Meal Award).


■ The girls travelled to Nagambie to take on Tabilk. Caitlyn played a great quarter in C and covered the court well. Jordan W and Hannah B worked well together in goals. It was a close first quarter. Both sides worked hard but Tabilk managed to get a two-goal lead by the end of the quarter. Tabilk 8, Yea 6. The defensive pressure from both sides was tight so there were many held balls called. Teagan and Ebony swapped defending positions in hope this would stop the Tabilk shooter, who held well, from getting her hands on the ball. They both got many deflects. Yea improved this quarter but Tabilk still managed to keep the lead. 17-12. The Tigers passing was letting them down this quarter so to gain some control they opted on lots of short strong passes. Jordyn O and Hannah C played strongly in the mid court helping Sophie bring the ball down the court. Tabilk’s defenders were strong making our goalers work hard for every ball. This resulted with Yea only scoring 1 goal. 22-13 Yea started well this quarter scoring the first


■ 1st Quarter. Yea, with the centre pass, got the ball down easily to their goal end, missing the rebounds but found a way to score the first goal. Great intercepting by Melody (C) and helped Yea to score another goal. Abby’s (GS) shooting was on form with Maggie (GA) also scoring some great goals. Yea 6 to Tabilk 3. 2nd Quarter. Melody stayed as centre for the second quarter, doing a great job with intercepts and pressure. An awesome intercept by Maggie (GA) but lost it to a replay ball in the goal ring. Ruby (GD), Holly (WD), Jordyn (WA) and Melody worked hard to get the ball down to our goalers Maggie and Abby to score a few more goals. Yea 11 to Tabilk 10. 3rd Quarter. Yea's intercepting was in top form, turning the ball over for Yea to add more goals to the score. Tabilk put the pressure on and didn't make it easy for our girls. A bad fall from Abby kept her out for the rest of the game and saw Cassy step in as GS. Yea 17 to Tabilk 13. 4th Quarter. No changes this quarter, the girls pushed on playing for injured Abby. Maggie tripped and hurt her hand but soldered on to play the rest of the game out. Yea put the pressure on and prevented Tabilk from not adding too many goals. It was a tough game but Yea was able to come home with a win. Final Score: Yea 23 def Tabilk 16 Awards. Royal Mail: Ruby O'Dwyer. Tiger Bucks: Melody Ross - Grace Cunningham


■ 1st Quarter. Round 10 saw Yea travel to Alex on Friday night to play at the indoor stadium. From the blow of the first whistle the game started hard and fast. The girls moved the ball well down the court resulting in sharp shooting by Olivia and Remi. Great defending by Emma and Sarah, Alex kept scoreless for the quarter. 2nd Quarter. Yea were looking for another great quarter. Plenty of turnovers from both sides and the ball was going back and forth, both teams hoping to capture a goal. Lily worked well in centre and Grace showed solid defending on the wing. Half-time score: Yea 10, Alex 2. 3rd Quarter. Yea needed to keep the pressure on Alex this quarter. Lily and Shanae worked well on the wing with great defending and intercepts. Girls were communicating and passing the ball beautifully. Alex girls applied the pressure as well resulting in goals and the gap closes going into the last quarter. 4th Quarter. Alex came out fighting and with a few quick goals Yea were feeling the heat. Yea defenders continued their great work, the last few minutes were nerve racking but Yea manages to hang on for the win. Congratulations to all of the girls on an exciting close game, hopefully your good form can continue for the remaining rounds. Final Score: Yea 14 def Alex 12 Awards. Royal Mail Voucher : Lily Und. Tiger Bucks:Shanae Baker - Jacqui Canton


■ Q1. Even with a frosty start to the game, the girls started the game positively, making some clear calling amongst team members. Madeline doing well as GK passing well to Tilley (GD). Bridie Mc (C) making fast centre passes to Chloe (GA) with great eye contact. Terrific first goal to Chloe keeping spirits high. Yea 1,


■ The A-Grade Competition resulted in a close match in Semi- Finals night on June 21. Eventually Doreen (Bruno Ciminelli/Riley Brennan) were defeated by Kinglake (James Kempen/ Mark Fitzpatrick) 2-3. In the Grand Final played on June 28, Broadford team (Les Parker/Sharon Fitzpatrick) edged out the Kinglake team 3-2, where the crucial doubles match was also won by Broadford in a close tussle 3-2. The Fitzpatricks were on opposing sides, so one of them had to be a champion. A-Grade leading player was Todd Clark. In the B-Grade Semi-Final, the Marlins (Peter Drofenik/Christian Esposito) ran out clear winners with a 4-1 victory over the Blue Fins (Christian Piro/Gil Lalanne). Unfortunately, Christian Esposito broke his wrist last week and was unable to play, so the Barracudas (Anita Gottwalt/Vasco Natevski) won the Grand Final on a forfeit by the Marlins. We wish Christian a speedy recovery. Leading Player in BGrade was Peter Drofenik. The C-Grade Final was played between the Lions team (Michael Peters/Sharon Lettey) and the Leopards (Jake Holding/Sebastian Esposito). Once again we had a close encounter with the Lions coming out winners by 3-2 games. Leading Player in C-Grade was Michael Peters. Practice and Grading nights will be held for all prospective players - existing members and any new players who wish to join in the fun - on Wednesday, July 5 and 12, starting 7.30pm. The Winter Season will commence on July 19 at the Chandler Pavilion, Whittlesea Showgrounds. For further details, call Les on 0419 466 018. Website: - Ian Staff

■ The AFLYarra Ranges League Round 11 of the 2017 season last Saturday and the Rebels had the bye after having played the three top sides in the last three weeks. Club Patrons enjoyed the Club's hospitality with a three-course luncheon and entertainment for Patrons' Day. Thank you to all of our patrons, sponsors of our vouchers and product for the raffle and auction, suppliers of our food, and all of our Club volunteers that assisted to ensure the day ran smoothly. The Club is also making progress with Stage 1 of the Reserve Development, the two new netball courts and lighting completed and the coaches' boxes all under construction, earthworks around the courts also under way. Stage 1 is costing $300,000 with funding of $95,000 obtained through the Country Football Netball Program and the Club supplying the balance of $200,000 in funds. Stage 2 will see construction of a building with change rooms, toilets, showers and storage adjoining the netball courts. The area has been pegged out, the building and planning permits obtained, awaiting completion of the funding agreements before works can start. This stage will also cost $300,000 with funding of $95,000 successfully applied for by Council with the Club again supplying the balance of $200,000 in funds to complete this stage of the Development. Stage 3 involves construction of a multi-purpose building and stage 4 will see an oval lighting upgrade. The Club continues to raise funds through a




range of projects and is appreciative of the support of NAB Alexandra which has provided much needed funds through their referral program and more recently, the Bendigo Bank Marysville has also joined the Club with their referral program. The Club's recycling project also continues with everyone welcome to deposit their aluminium cans in the bins at the front of the Club rooms at Rebel Park with over 1000 kilograms of cans having been recycled instead of going into landfill. This Saturday (July 8) the Rebels return to Rebel Park and host Yarra Junction for two games of football and four games of netball, the Club also hosting the 1997 senior football premiership team and the 2007 reserves football premiership team together with the past players day. Everyone is welcome to come along and join the celebrations. The Club's Slaves and Services Auction is on Saturday, July 29 so if you would like to be involved please contact Ray Steyger. Thursday's Rebel Raffles are sponsored by Holmesglen @ Eildon and Mt. Pleasant Hotel, Reddrops Foodworks / Houseboat Sales Lake Eildon, Eildon Bakery / Outdoor Education Group, Alexandra Quality Meats / Alexandra Windscreens and Yea Chinese Restaurant / Bailey Funerals. The Holmesglen @ Eildon Jackpot joker card has not been turned and so the jackpot will be worth $300 this week so come along and buy some tickets at $1 each but you need to be at the Club rooms at 8pm for the draw. Thursday night dinners have two sittings, for juniors and

then seniors after their respective training with main course and sweets - adults $15 and kids $10, everyone is welcome. Alexandrians and particularly those around the Football-Netball Club were saddened last week that Stephanie Dundas lost her courageous fight. We wish parents Robert and Sue, brothers Chris and Nathan, and the Dundas family who have been great contributors to the AFNC over the last 70-plus years, our condolences.
