Their children - Tony, Dianne (Mrs Corbett) now of Wandin, and Sandra (Mrs Lockhart) now of Whyalla - were in attendance at Saturday’s celebration.

■ Hundreds of firearms have been handed in for registration, sale or destruction in Victoria in the first months of National Firearms Amnesty. As of the end of July, 751 firearms had been surrendered in Victoria. Superintendent Paul Millett of the Licensing and Regulation Division said this was 751 fewer firearms that would otherwise be at greater risk of ending up in the wrong hands. “We have seen a good response to the amnesty so far,” he said. “Every unwanted or unregistered firearm or weapon that we can destroy or register is another step towards a safer Victoria. “We are seeing people with unregistered firearms from deceased estates, those who have been given firearms by friends and relatives as well as existing licence holders all surrendering unwanted and unregistered firearms.

Deadline next month “We encourage everyone to think about any firearms or weapons that they have around the house or in storage and to take action by surrendering them to a licensed firearm dealer. “People who are appropriately licenced are able to acquire surrendered firearms via usual processes; however, we ask that they are patient while we register the firearm so a permit to acquire can be issued.” Supt Millett said the amnesty complemented the ongoing work of Victoria Police’s dedicated firearms investigation team, regional investigators and national law enforcement partners to get illegal firearms off our streets. “The illegal firearm market is complex and the amnesty is just one of the ways we are re-

ducing the number of unregistered firearms,” he said. In addition to firearms, a number of other items have been surrendered including swords, a crossbow, ammunition and imitation firearms. Victorians have until September 30 to surrender unregistered and unwanted firearms, ammunition and weapons to Licensed Firearms Dealers without fear of prosecution. Anyone surrendering firearms, weapons or ammunition during the amnesty should surrender to a Licensed Firearms Dealer and not directly to local police. Explosives should not be surrendered during the amnesty. Any person wanting to dispose of explosives, including explosive ordnances, should contact WorkSafe. “We encourage people to phone Licenced Firearms Dealers ahead of time and letting them know what items you are looking to surrender,” Supt Millett said.

● Lyle Dayman in 2017 ■ Lyle and Ro Dayman lived in Yea for 15 years. Allegedly in retirement, Lyle could be seen in Yea with paint brushes, and Ro liked nothing better than to drop in a line, angling in local waterways. Lyle had been part of the extraordinary Monahan Dayman Adams advertising business. His creative work has not stopped for a minute. He now paints from his Adelaide home, overlooking the sea. This week Lyle gave permission for The Local Paper to reproduce some of his works of Yea subjects. Turn to Page 27 and see Lyle’s magic for yourself.

Imposter hits MHR

● This photo of ‘The Red Store’ in Alexandra is dated 1905, according to the ‘Lost Alexandra’ social media page. It is likely that the photo was taken by Lindsay G. Cumming, who had a Ford dearlership in the early days.

● Rob Mitchell ■ Federal McEwen MHR Rob Mitchell was hit with a social media imposter last week. A bogus Facebook account, similar to that of the long-time Labor politician, was created by person or p[ersons unknown. “If you get a friend request from a page that looks like this one, please dont accept ... it’s a fake ... Facebook has been notified,” Mr Mitchell said.

● John Quinlan and Jim Ward, 1987 ■ Posters celebrating the premiership win of Yea’s Under 15 football team against the Alexandra Rebels rolled off the presses at the Yea newspaper office within 15 minutes of the final siren, we reported in 1987. Yea’s Patrick Ryen booted a goal to secure victory with just minutes to go in the final quarter at the Rec., which had received nearly ‘100 points’ of rain the previous night. Jubilant coach Jim Ward told the team of teenagers it was the greatest moment of his life. Yea 4.7 (31) d Alexandra 4.2 (26). Umpire Chris Rigg of Eildon checked players before the match for ear-rings opr neckplaces. A Yea Under 15 player replied: “We’re not that type of men.”

Important medal

■ “Yea swimmer Rodney Lawson’s bronze medal win at Brisbane’s Pan Pacific Games was described by The Sun News-Pictorial as the most important result in his career,” we wrote. “Experienced swimming reporrter Judy Joy Davies said that ‘Yea teenager Rodney Lawson swam the race of his life to grab a bronze medal in the 100m breaststroke.’

Lawson v Lawson

■ ‘Ythanbrae’ property owner Don Lawson went into print to criticise Yea Shire President Cr David Lawson for comments about the media in his annual report. The remarks could only be seen as an attempt to stifle the local newspaper, Don Lawson said. “Given its resources, The Yea Chronicle has done a marvellous job keeping residents informed and interested in Council activities. “Quite correctly, The Chronicle has portrayed the picture of an accident prone, and at times, arrogant Council. “I can only hope the new Council will learn from past errors and engage in more consultation and compromise. A free press is an essential part of our democracy and attempts to stifle the press will be very counter productive.”

Failure to vote ■ A former Yea resident received ‘First Notice of Failure to Vote’ from the Shire of Yea, following the August 1, 1987, poll. The former resident said they had left the district at the start of the year, and hade never been a ratepayer of the Shire. They had enrolled at their new address within a week of moving.

$6274 collected ■ A cash collection at the Whatton PlaceGoulburn Valley Hwy corner by five Yea CFA personnel collected $6274.90 to help fund the purchase of Jaws of Life equipment.

Safer Kinglake ■ The Kinglake and District Safety House Committee told Yea Shire Council that it was grateful for the erection of large signs outside the three local schools. Safety zone signs had been erected on the main road at Kinglake. Cr Jim Hackett was praised for his quick response to the urgent need of the program.

Local News

Respect needed, urges MHR Letters to the Editor Puzzled by Shire Sir, I continue to be puzzled by the attitude of the Murrindindi Shire Council. (‘Open Letter to CEO, Councillors, The Local Paper, Aug. 2). First, as a former Commonwealth Public Servant and Audit Manager, it was courtesy to reply to the sender of any correspondence even if it was simply to say thank you for their letter and advise that the matter was now under consideration. Thereafter, a Department had 21 days to formulate a response for the Minister’s signature. To not reply, is both disrespectful to you as the editor, to you readers and more generally to the ratepayers. Secondly, for the past seven years I have been researching the World War I histories of the 287 individuals who had a tree planted in their honour in the Kingston (near Creswick) Avenue of Honour. It is only when you become intimately involved with these individuals and their descendants, that you begin to truly appreciate the sacrifices all made so that we can have democratic freedoms today. Secret Council meetings play no part in the democratic process. Why did our collective ancestors sacrifice themselves? So Councils can have secret meetings, with secret decisions? I think not. On a different matter, there is one sure thing about the proposed hospital merger – the current reserves of $4 million will never be spent in Yea. Keep up the good work. - Peter Rickard

Snippets Presentation Ball

■ Kinglake Football-Netball Club is holding a Presentation Ball from 6.30pm-11.30pm on Friday, September 29, at the Eastern Golf Club, 215 Victoria Rd, Yering. Dress is formal. Tickets are available at $90 per person. Bookings available through ‘Robbo’, 0425 809 369.

■ Cathy McGowan, Federal MHR for Indi, is urging the community to have respectful conversations ahead of the proposed postal vote on same-sex marriage. The Federal Government expects the postal vote will begin on September 12. “My preference was for a free vote but the postal vote is now the mechanism we must use in order for the Parliament to reflect the widespread views of the community,” Ms McGowan said. “It is no longer about whether or not we should have a plebiscite but about coming together as a community to demonstrate how we can have a difficult discussion and share opposing views in a respectful way. Every conversation will matter. “We must be our best selves. Our conversations need to be about acceptance and building greater knowledge, and should not be personal. “I have said before that I will support marriage equality. Discrimination has no place in Australian law or society.

Permit issue at VCAT

■ A dispute over property between family members associated with James McMahon and Michael McMahon has gone to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. Murrindindi Shire Council engaged solicitor Ian Pridgeon of Russell Kennedy to represent the Shire’s interests. VCAT member MaryAnn Taranto affirmed one Council decision (P2575/2016), but also rejected a permit (2016/90). “This is a case where more detailed and specialised information on engineering measures at least addressing the matters described above are required to be provided from the beginning of the planning application process,” Ms Taranto said. “This would need to be accompanied by a carefully considered maintenance regime that is practical as well as details of the proposal’s impacts on any existing vegetation for both arms of the driveway. “I should also add that avoidance of vegetation removal should be a key objective. “Only then can a proper assessment be un-

dertaken of the environmental impacts arising from the form, scale and type of engineering measures including the impacts of the location, dimensions, design and materials associated with all drainage and sediment control measures such as beaching and cut-off drains. “It may also be necessary to seek the views of the relevant Catchment Management Authority in respect of the proposal’s possible impacts on nearby waterways. “There is inadequate information at this time and thus too much uncertainty about the full extent of engineering works required to facilitate this proposal and their associated impacts on vegetation and water quality. “In short, I simply do not know what works I would be authorising if I were to grant a permit. I am therefore unable to reach the conclusion that this proposal would lead to an acceptable planning outcome. “The decision of the responsible authority is set aside. No permit is granted,” Ms Taranto said. ● Detailed report on Page 22

■ Murrindindi Council is seeking to establish a panel of up to four builders with a commercial licence capable of providing maintenance and minor improvement works. Panel contractors will be required to provide services across Council’s 150 buildings which are occupied and utilised by Council staff as well as various community groups and management committees.

New Lodge Master

■ Clint Crout was installed as Master of the Seymour Masonic Lodge on Saturday (Aug. 11). A number of district Freemasons attended the event which was carried out by the Grand Lodge ceremonial team.

Classic screens

● Cathy McGowan, Indi MHR “I believe the legal and institutional framework which governs Australia should treat all people equally,” Ms McGowan said in a statement issued late last week.

Yarra Ranges input sought ■ Yarra Ranges residents - including those in Lilydale, Healesville and Yarra Glen - are being urged by the Andrews Labor State Government to have their say, as community consultation kicks off in the lead-up to the first Eastern Metropolitan Partnership Assembly on August 31. The annual Metropolitan Partnerships give people across Melbourne the chance to come together as a community and advise the Andrews Labor Government on regional priorities and opportunities. The assembly will give locals an opportunity to talk directly to decision makers about the future needs of the eastern metropolitan region, and help all levels of government better understand the varied challenges facing Melbourne’s east as it grows. The Partnership then advise government on actions that can make a real difference to the liveability of the Eastern Metropolitan Region, which includes the local government areas of Yarra Ranges, Manningham, Maroondah, Knox, Whitehorse and Monash. It is unclear whether residents in outlying municipalities such as Murrindindi, Mitchell, Strathbogie and Mansfield will be given similar opportunities to have such access to decision makers. “Our suburbs are growing and it’s vital that community groups and all levels of government are involved in keeping our city liveable and sustainable,” said Lily D’Amrosio, Minister for Suburban Development. “Local communities know exactly what their priorities are, that’s why we’ve launched the Eastern Metro Partnership.”

Local Briefs Panel sought

“I encourage everyone living and working in the Eastern Region to take the opportunity to engage with this process and join the discussion,” said Robyn White, Eastern Partnership Chair. The Metropolitan Partnership helps ensure all of Melbourne’s residents will have reliable and affordable access to jobs, services and infrastructure, no matter where they live. The Eastern Metropolitan Partnership is one of six across Melbourne’s metro areas, with the Inner Metro, Inner South East, Western, Southern and Northern Partnerships also launched in June. Each Partnership includes eight business and community representatives, the CEO of each council in the region .

■ The iconic English/Australian film Walkabout will be shown at 6.45pm for 7pm on Friday (Aug. 18) at the Yea Shire Chambers . Doors open at 6.45 p.m. for drinks and nibbles and the screening will commence at 7pm. Made in 1971 by the English director Nicholas Roeg, Walkabout follows the fate of two children lost in the Australian wilderness who are helped to survive by a young aborigine. “The film paints a beautifully realised portrait of the outback and examines the differences between the two cultures that ultimately leads to a moving conclusion,” says Murrindindi Fil Society Secretary Jill Dwyer. “The children are wonderfully played by Jenny Agutter and the director's son Luc, and a young David Gulpilil makes an impressive film debut. “The film is considered a classic of the Australian cinema and should not be missed,” Ms Dwyer said. Prosspective members and first time guests will be welcomed free of charge. All enquiries to Jill Dwyer, Secretary on 5797 2480.

In Our Schools Sue appointed

■ Sue Malcolm has been appointed as substantive Assistant Principal at Alexandra Secondary College. “Sue is an excellent educator; she has a deep knowledge of educational theory and the ability to be able to put it into practice. Our staff and students have benefited greatly over the last year and a half from her work as ‘acting’ Assistant Principal,” said Principal Nigel Lyttle.

Skipping comp.

■ Yea Primary School's Senior Skipping Team will be heading to Melton today (Wed.) to participate in the Victorian State Skipping Competition. Students are compe/ng in speed events, individual and partner rou/nes and as a group in a six-minute routine. All skippers have been working under the guidance of Lou Fillmore.

Student free day

■ Today (Wed.) is a student free day at Alexandra Secondary College. Teaching staff will be busy on the Curriculum Day working in their subject teams on rubrics aligned to the new Victorian curriculum.

Saw ‘Dunkirk’

■ 20th Century History students from Yea High SWchool travelled to Chirnside Park to see the film Dunkirk. The film depicts the dramatic and true story of the Dunkirk evacuations from a war torn beach and harbour in France, following the seemingly doomed plight of allied soldiers in World War II. In-depth discussions between students followed the screening of the move.

Transition day

Alexandra SC trip

■ The Alice Sloan Leadership Program team from Alexandra Secondary College will travel to Toorak College in Mount Eliza on Wednesday next week (Aug. 23) to talk with their Year 9 students about their experiences so far in the program. The connection with Toorak College came about because Alice Sloan was a student there when she lost her life on an outdoor expedition. Alice's parents wanted to celebrate her love of the outdoors and developed the Alice Sloan Trust to enable other teenage girls to experience the benefits of outdoor education. Each year, in January, a group of ASC Year 11 students participate in a 10-day expedition. The girls take part in challenging activities including: bushwalking, camping, canoeing and cycling in the Alexandra region. The expedition promotes personal growth and skill development. The Trust has worked with staff and students at Alexandra Secondary College for over 10 years to provide a an opportunity for the local girls. ASC students will talk about the 'ups and downs’ of their expedition, their fundraising activities for the Alice Sloan Trust, including the Walk of Life, the Bake Sale and the Casual Dress Day, their connection with Jennie and John Sloan, as well as the Girl Link camp they will be running in early September for Grade 6 girls who will be attending Alexandra Secondary College in 2018. The Year 9 Toorak College girls will have the opportunity to ask questions of the Alexandra team, and then to be given the chance to join the Alice Sloan Trust group which will run at Toorak College for the coming three years.

Yea’s safety lights raised in Parliament ■ The new speed safety signs outside Yea Primary School were mentioned in State Parliament last week by Eildon MLA Cindy McLeish. “Flashing electronic speed limit signs were finally installed outside Yea Primary School well into the winter,” Ms McLeish told the Legislative Assembly. “Although this has been good news for the school, there have been a number of disappointments along the way particularly with the process. “At no time was the school given any information about the installation going ahead. The school had petitioned VicRoads, and I had petitioned the minister. “I also wrote to the minister in September 2016, receiving a response in February 2017 five months later. “His letter indicated that we were successful and the lights would be installed early this year. “Well, early this year came and went, winter set in, as did the fog, and then there was some activity in the recent

● Cindy McLeish MLA school holidays, with the installation completed just after school went back. “Still there was no contact with the school, and amazingly it was some 10 days after installation that the signs were finally turned on - and still the school was not informed. “Now, after a lot of angst and two-thirds of the way into winter, they are on, and Rachael Hocking, the school crossing supervisor, and the schoolchildren have increased safety. “The news is not so good

Fire services report tabled ■ The Fire Services Bill Select Committee has tabled an interim report on its inquiry into the fire services bill. The interim report sets out the consultation process undertaken by the Select Committee and notes that the final report will be presented in mid-August. “The Select Committee is grateful for the large number of submissions it received from firefighters and community members across Victoria,” said Select Committee Chairman, Gordon Rich-Phillips. “We also appreciate the time and effort that people took to attend public hearings in Melbourne and several regional centres.” More than 1500 submissions and the transcripts from seven public hearings are available on the Committee’s website. “The inquiry has involved a number of contentious issues and the Committee is working through the extensive evidence it has received,” Mr Rich-Phillips said. “We are preparing our final report with recommendations for tabling in mid-August.” The Select Committee was established by the Legislative Council to consider and report on a proposed restructure of Victoria’s fire services. The proposed changes are outlined in the Firefighters' Presumptive Rights Compensation and Fire Services Legislation Amendment (Reform) Bill 2017.

Graduation ■ Members of the Rotary Club of Yea are celebrating the achievements of its 2014-15 French exchange student, Solenne Bozzetto, in graduating second of her class of 81 as a territorial reservist from the Pays-de-la-Loire region of France. Solenne was presented with her medal by Lt General Richard Lizurey in a graduation ceremony at the Ecole de Gendarmerie de

for the crossing supervisors and students at Woori Yallock and Wesburn primary schools,” Ms McLeish told State Parliament. “Both schools are in need of flashing electronic speed limit signs. These signs are desperately needed. “Woori Yallock Primary School is on the HealesvilleKoo Wee Rup Rd, which is a major thoroughfare and carries a lot of heavy traffic. “Fog and visibility is a factor here. Improved signage has been installed; however, this is not seen as effectively as the electronic signs. “Wesburn Primary School is located on a sweeping bend on the busy Warburton Highway. “Being near Mount Donna Buang, the weather is variable and at times very poor. “I call on the government to escalate these matters, put the safety of school students at Woori Yallock and Wesburn firmly on the agenda and install flashing electronic speed limit signs,” Ms McLeish said.

News Briefs Limits reversed

■ Vic Roads had announced with fanfare that speed limits from Yea to Molesworth would be returned to 100-kmh last week. However, the poor state of the Goulburn Valley Hwy surface after the carriageway separation roadworks saw limits reduced to 60-kmh, whilst urgent patch-up works were conducted late last week. State Roads Minister Luke Donnellan - in an announcement where he was flanked by Murrindindi Shire CEO Margaret Abbey has flagged that more of the highway separation works are to be conducted between Molesworth and Cathkin.

Need for toilets

■ Yan Yean MLADanielle Green last week raised the need for public toilets for netballers at Diamond Creek. Speaking in the Legislative Assembly, Ms Green said: “Netballers in Diamond Creek have had their facility needs overlooked for too long: 800 to 1000 players compete there every Saturday 11 months of the year, and it has been fertile ground for champions like Diamond Creek’s very own Diamond, Kate Moloney. “The member for Eltham and I spend many Saturdays watching the competition there, and we have been pretty disgusted to see that all those players share only two toilets and one shower. “What is the government going to do to encourage the sport of netball in Diamond Valley, and will there be funding to support this great sport?” The Speaker - Order! The member for Yan Yean, which minister is your question directed to? Ms Green - The Minister for Sport.

Trip to hospital

■ Yea woman Belinda Dean has an unexpected trip to the Northern Hospital, Epping, at the weekend. Belinda was admitted to the Coronary Care Unit at the hospital.

What The Papers Say Shadow Min. visit

■ The Medicare rebate freeze was a hot topic when Shadow Health Minister Catherine King was in Seymour. Ms King joined Member for McEwen, Rob Mitchell, on a whirlwind tour of some of Seymour’s major health precincts, including Seymour Health and Seymour Medical Clinic. ‘‘Every community is different, and I really wanted to focus on the health service here in Seymour on this visit,’’ Ms King said. - Seymour Telegraph

$1.6m gamble

■ Punters in Mansfield have gambled away $1.619 million on local pokie machines during the 2016-17 financial year. People lost nearly $200,000 more across some 40 machines even though losses across the state decreased. According to the annual statistics released by the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation , total expenditure statewide was $2,609,530,060 in 2016-17 – a decrease of 0.25 per cent on 2015-16. - Mansfield Courier

Green and gold

■ Local skiing star Jess Haslau has been selected for the Australian National Ski Team. Jess, 25, who grew up in Longwood and finished her schooling at Euroa Secondary College , is one of just six women chosen to compete for Australia, and was selected after some impressive performances in slalom, giant slalom and super giant slalom competitions. - Euroa Gazette

Riding for Victoria

■ Teriprider Kendall Richards represented Victoria at the Equestrian Victoria TransTasman Teams Challenge against New Zealand at Werribee Park. Four junior riders and four young rider riders from each country competed on pool horses to ensure a level playing field. The competition was held over two rounds over two days and each rider had only 20 minutes flatwork and six warm-up fences for familiarisation with their horse before competing. Although four riders competed for each team only the best three scores counted, allowing a drop-off score. This always adds to the excitement and keeps everyone guessing until the end. The Trans-Tasman Cup was awarded to New Zealand which had a four-point lead after both days of competition. - Granite News

Orchestra time

■ Young music students from across the Yarra Ranges have performed with musicians from Orchestra Victoria in a spectacular symphony concert in Healesville. The students from Year 7 to Year 12 took part in a two-day student workshop in the lead-up to a full orchestral concert as part of Orchestra Victoria’s ‘On the mOVe! Healesville’ education program. - Mountain Views Mail

Rubbish truck ire

■ Council rubbish trucks are racking up hefty damage bills as they barge into letterboxes, basketball hoops and cars, costing ratepayers thousands of dollars a year. Truck drivers are also ploughing into fences, overhead cables, car side mirrors and bumper bars across Melbourne’s north-east. Documents obtained by Leader under Freedom of Information reveal Banyule Council racked up $50,367.39 and Nillumbik Council stumped up $25,445 in third party property damage between January 1, 2015 and April 6, 2017.

Paralysis fear

■ Sir, -Allow ime space in your paper to air my views on the paralysis outbreak. We read in the dail y papers that meetings are being held in tmany country towns and that steps are being taken to safeguard these particular towns. What about it, Alexandra residents? Do you not think that this little hamlet should arise from its prolonged slumber, and do something to protect the community from the outbreak. The Melbourne High Schools, etc., will be breaking up for their holidays soon, and no doubt an influx of children will arrive here, and in the outlying districts, and therefore the risk of contact will be 50 p.c. greater. - Common Sense

Motor cycle crash

■ A motor car driven by Mr. J. Baynes collided with a motor cycle ridden by Mr. Robert Peters at the Monument on Sunday afternoon. Mr. Peters was hurled off the motor cycle. He sustained a couple of broken bones in his foot. The motor cycle was a new one, and it was completely wrecked.

Country Party

■ The annual social of the Alexandra branch of the United Country Party, held in the Shire Hall on Thursday evening of last week, at tracted a large attendance, well over 200 being present. Euchre and dancing occupied the early portion of the proceedings, and at about 10.30 (when the euchre competition concluded) short speeches were made by visiting members of the U.C.P.

Whittlesea ball

■ The inaugural ball of the Whittlesea branch of the Country Women's Association, held in the Parish Hall on August 11 was well attended, and the branch members .are most gratetful for the patronage given them. Amongst those present were members of the Wallan branch, with the president (Mrs. Wedding) and members of the Kilmore branch. The decorations, in the colours of the association - green and gold - were pleasing and effective. Wattle-blossom and narcissi were incorporated in the scheme, and enhanced its beauty.

Marketing of eggs

■ Under. provisions of the Marketing of Primary Products Act, the Victorian Egg and Egg Pulp Marketing Board assumed ownership of all eggs produced in the State as from August 16, 1937. Under Board control, only those persons or Companies who have been granted Board Agencies may now sell eggs within the State.

Billiard tourney

■ The billiard tournament, in progress for some months at Mr. C. Boyd's rooms, Kilmore, in aid of Miss Kilmore of Sport was completed:this week, resulting in a win for the Kilmore East candidate, Mr. G. Skepper. In the semi-final stages Mr. V. Murray defeated Murray Moore, and G. Skepper defeated Ken Moore. In the final match, 100 up, G. Skepper (35 bhd) defeated V. Murray (10 on) - 100 to 88.

G’boro grand ball

■ The committee of the Greensborough Football Club embarked on an ambitious project when they engaged the huge ballroom at the Heidelberg Town Hall, for their grand ball. The result however, fully justified their enterprise, and between 600 and 700 very happy dancers assembled and spent a thoroughly enjoyable time danciiig to good music, on a splendid floor, and amid luxurious surroundings.

Yea Golf ■ Open Championship 36 holes, won by K. Murray, after a play off against A. Murray. These two young players both on 3 mark are very evenly matched. They tied after 36 holes, then played off 9 more, tied again and played 1 more hole to decide and Keith was winner.

Pilot scheme for Whittlesea health ■ Health needs in the Whittlesea area were discussed last week in State Parliament. Danielle Green, MLA for Yan Yean, spoke of a pilot scheme being trialled for the region. “Health services are important to all of the Yan Yean electorate that I represent, but especially in Whittlesea for older residents, families and young people alike, given the federal government defines the township as an area of medical workforce shortage. “The Andrews LaborGovernment is taking a number of actions to support the health needs of this great community. “Recently I was pleased to join Dr Brian Murphyfrom the Whittlesea Medical Centre and the great staff at Lauren Oakley-Abbott’s pharmacy, the Whittlesea Amcal phar-

■ Seymour police are on the lookout for a black Ford Territory after it took off from them on nightshift this past week. The driver sped up to 90kmh in a 50kmh zone on Anzac Ave, forcing police to terminate the pursuit.

Kinglake dispute goes before Tribunal ■ A planning dispute between members of Kinglake’s McMahon family, and involving the Murrindindi Shire Council, has gone before Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal member Mary Anne Taranto. James McMahon took action against a Murrindindi Shire Council decision at VCAT, appealing its decision to grant a permit for earthworks associated with a driveway at 70 Murrays Rd, Kinglake. The respondent was T and C Development Services Pty Ltd, represented at the Tribunal by Michael McMahon. Murrindindi Shire Council was represented by Ian Pridgeon, solicitor of Russell Kennedy Lawyers. James McMahon cited the impact of works on existing vegetation and neighbouring land. The Tribunal affirmed the Council’s decision. The Tribunal heard that the permit applied to works associated with the construction of a driveway generally in carriageway easements on the land. “In addition to the driveway formation which is to be surfaced in crushed rock, drainage works are also proposed. “The driveway formation and rudimentary drainage works including table drains and the installation of two culverts has already commenced. “The review site comprises four lots with a combined area of 58.52 hectares in the same ownership.” The proposal affects two of the lots, which contain recently created 15m wide carriageway easements in which the proposed driveways are located. “The land is undulating, used for farming purposes (animal grazing and pasture) and includes a band of remnant native vegetation across its northern portion. “There is an elevated dam on the eastern-most lot near its east boundary. “A long-established access track is evident in an east-west direction through Lots 42E and Lot 1. “Surrounding land is similarly zoned and used for farming purposes. Creeks are evident to the north and south.” An accompanied inspection of the site and surrounds was undertaken on the morning of Friday, May 26. James McMahon sought a review of the Murrindindi Council’s decision to grant a permit for earthworks associated with the driveway on neighbouring farming land. “The earthworks were carried out sometime in late 2015 without planning permission,” Ms Taranto noted. “Complaints about these works led to an investigation by the Council and subsequent lodgement of a planning permit application by T & C Development Services Pty Ltd on behalf of the review site’s landowners who are relatives of the applicant. “The Council’s decision to grant planning permission is conditional on a number of matters, including the carrying out of certain drainage works subject to particular engineering requirements including end wall treatments to culverts, beaching and other erosion control measures. “The applicant (James McMahon) contends that the alignment of the driveway is fundamentally flawed, given its close proximity in part to his property and the ex-

because the Council formed the view that the removal of native vegetation fell within one of the exemptions under clauses 52.17 and 52.48 of the planning scheme, an issue to which I will return.” Ms Taranto said: “A permit is required under the provisions of the Farming Zone for works associated with the driveway and this is not in dispute. “The permission is invoked under the schedule to the FZ because the driveway works change both the rate of flow and the discharge point of water across a property boundary, in this case the applicant’s property. “There are two other possible planning permissions required. “The first of these relates to works permission under the ESO1. “The applicant submitted that planning permission is required for the proposed works under the ESO1, reflecting the position stated in the officer’s report. “However, a contrary submission was made at the hearing by Mr Prigdon. He submitted that the works are exempt under Schedule 1 because the works are associated with ‘agricultural development or activity.’ “In the alternative, he submitted that the works could be regarded as ‘roadworks’ which would be exempt under clause 62.02-2. “I consider that the proposed works could be regarded as works associated with agricultural development or activity on the basis that they would provide access by vehicles engaged in farm related activity. “I should add that even if I am wrong about this, my conclusion about the acceptability of this proposal would not differ, having regard to the range of matters I am still required to consider under the planning scheme.” Ms Taranto said: “While there is a clear direction to protect and enhance the use of farmland for agricultural purposes any works need to be carried out in a way that do not adversely affect the existing and future agricultural values of all land including surrounding land. “This includes mitigating any adverse effects upon soil quality arising from overland flows of stormwater and sediment laden runoff discharging onto the applicant’s farmland. “Similarly, there is a clear planning imperative to limit the effects of development on waterway quality and native vegetation. “In this case, I accept that the proposed works will facilitate vehicle access throughout the site and in respect of neighbouring land, particularly the abutting lot to the east of Lot 1 for purposes that I expect would reasonably include agricultural activity.” Ms Taranto said: “I consider that the nature of these works and their possible consequential impacts are too significant to be deferred to a secondary consent process via conditions on a permit. “This is a case where more detailed and specialised information on engineering measures at least addressing the matters described above are required to be provided from the beginning of the planning application process ... I should also add that avoidance of vegetation removal should be a key objective.”

Countdown to Yea Garden Expo

■ If you are a gardener or interested in plants and flowers, what better way to spend a spring weekend than strolling around the beautiful grounds of theYea Racecourse and Golf Club, taking in the many stalls and exhibits on display at this year's Yea Rotary Garden Expo? Last year's expo was a first for Rotary, and its outstanding success has led to plans for an even bigger and more diverse event. More than 1500 visitors enjoyed the expo last year and exhibitors were enthusiastic about the venue and the large crowd. This year there will be even more busi-

esses exhibiting everything from rare trees, plants and bulbs through garden tools, ornaments and equipment to compost and soil. Many nurseries will be represented and there will be a huge variety of plants for sale. Rotary will again be presenting a preloved garden book stall and will also host a ‘crèche’ where visitors can leave their purchases in safe hands until they are ready to leave. A feature of the expo will be a varied program of speakers who will give their

presentations over the two-day period. These include Maria McCarter of Sunset Valley Chicks, who breeds a large variety of pure -red poultry. After her talk, Maria will auction a pair of her best chickens. Also speaking will be Julie Weatherhead, author of Australian Native Food Harvest; Anthony Hosemans, a grower of medicinal herbs; Graham Sargeant who is a rose specialist; Steve Joblin, a knowledgeable beekeeper; and Peter Madden, who is currently head gardener at the historic Delatite Station.

A number of food and drink vendors will cater for this event and visitors will be able to enjoy fine coffee, Indian food, and gourmet take-away, or a sit-down snack prepared by members of the Yea Wetlands and presented in the Golf Club rooms. Those interested can find the new Yea Rotary Garden Expo website up and on line. This website provides a location map and list of attractions, and also features accommodation venues for those who may wish to stay in Yea for the weekend. - Jan Hubbard

Big day out at Little River: tree planting at Taggerty ■ Volunteers from the Victorian Fly Fishing Association , Taggerty Community Progress Group, Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority and the local community braved wintry conditions to plant hundreds of tree and shrub seedlings along the Little River at Taggerty this month. Goulburn Broken CMA’s Sue Kosch said it was a fantastic effort in fairly difficult conditions. “Thanks to everyone, including the 20 VFFA members who headed up from Melbourne, for turning up and helping despite the weather,” Ms Kosch said. “Fortunately the rain stayed away for

most of the time we were planting and setting up the guards around the seedlings but it was still very cold and wet. We all really appreciated the efforts of Taggerty locals Richard, Max and Eddy who set up a fire drum and marquees and provided hot soup and a barbecue for lunch.” Blackwood, prickly currant bush, teatrees and pomaderris were planted by the volunteers and added to the 400-plus seedlings planted last month at the site by Buxton and Taggerty locals as part of the two-year Little River Reserve weed control and revegetation project. ● Turn to Magazine 8

International director arrives in WeHo

■ Hi everyone, from my suite at the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Suites comes this week's news.

Ramada Review ■ Ramada West Hollywood offers beautiful, luxurious rooms and spiral staircases. - Reviewed by: David Smith from AU Review.

Top film man in the house

■ Internationally acclaimed film director Simon Wincer made a brief visit to West Hollywood last week and caught up with his long-time friend Alan Johnson, Managing Director, Ramada Plaza Hotel and Suites, West Hollywood. The Free Willy director was in Los Angeles to look for locations for his next top-secret movie. If you go to the Gold Coast and see the Australian Outback Spectacular, which is a $23 million show extravaganza, you will witness the directing brilliance of Simon Wincer. Simon is credited with such landmark movies as Free Willy, Quigley Down Under, The Phantom, Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles, Operation Dumbo Drop, The Cup, Lightning Jack and many more blockbusters.

Self driving semi-trailers ■ Tesla is getting close to testing a prototype of a long haul, electric semi-truck that can drive itself and automatically follow a lead vehicle in a "platoon", Reuters reports. The electric-car maker discussed possible road tests for the new technology with the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles in an email exchange seen by Reuters. A regulatory official with the company told Nevada authorities the goal is to test two trucks "without having a person in the vehicle". Tesla was also due to meet with authorities in California to discuss similar plans, according to the report. Chief Executive Elon Musk said earlier this year that the company's new electric truck would be unveiled in September, though he didn't mention self-driving capabilities at that time.

Carrie Fisher leaves $7m

■ Billie Lourd has been working hard to get used to life without her grandmother and mother around. Now, new court documents reportedly reveal what the star's late mother left her after her passing. Carrie Fisher, Lourd's mother, died in December 2016. It was previously reported that the late Star Wars actress left her daughter a slew of owned assets including bank accounts, a 2016 Tesla S, ownership of several companies and a life insurance policy. This doesn't even cover Fisher's various jewellery items, artwork, and collectables.

The Boss on Broadway

■ Bruce Springsteen has confirmed an eight-week run of Broadway performances, set to begin in October at the Walter Kerr Theatre. The engagement, titled Springsteen on Broadway, will feature the legendary singer-songwriter performing songs from all eras of his career as well as readings from his 2016 memoir Born to Run. "I wanted to do some shows that were as personal and as intimate as possible," Springsteen said. "I chose Broadway for this project because it has the beautiful old theatres which seemed like the right setting for what I have in mind. “In fact, with one or two exceptions, the 960 seats of the Walter Kerr Theatre is probably the smallest venue I've played in the last 40 years. My show is just me, the guitar, the piano and the words and music. “Some of the show is spoken, some of it is sung. It loosely follows the arc of my life and my work. All of it together is in pursuit of my constant goal to provide an entertaining evening and to communicate something of value."

Sad passing of star

■ Glen Campbell, the sweet-voiced, guitar-picking son of a sharecropper who became a recording, television and movie star in the 1960s and '70s, waged a publicised battle with alcohol and drugs and gave his last performances while in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease, passed away in Nashville. He was 81.

Get out there and mingle ■ One is the loneliest number and, sometimes, it could even be the most dangerous. Loneliness is just as much of a public health hazard as obesity, if not more so, according to research presented at the American Psychological Association annual conference last week. Research from 148 studies, involving 300,000 participants, showed people who had greater social connections had a 50 per cent reduced risk of dying early, and another set of research involving 70 studies representing 3.4 million people in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia found social isolation, loneliness or living alone each played a significant role in premature death. More than 42 million Americans over the age of 45 suffer from chronic loneliness. More than one-quarter of the population lives alone and more than half are unmarried, according to the US Census Bureau. People that considered themselves lonely were less likely to engage in social activities, such as going to religious services, volunteering or finding a hobby. So get out there and mingle.

Seriously though, how many hotel rooms do you ever get to stay in that have a spiral staircase? Like, actually in the room? My first thought entering my room at the luxurious Ramada Plaza West Hollywood was that I was in a room far fancier than I was used to. The bottom floor of the room is a spacious living area with couches, a TV and large windows that show off a view of the city south towards Downtown. The bathroom is tucked away behind it all, itself well appointed and boasting a bath-shower combo along with a large, well-lit basin area. There's a small kitchenette that is particularly well stocked and will make things easy for anyone looking to stay for longer periods. A balcony outside skirted the entire room, providing an area augment to the already stellar view. It's rare to stay in a hotel room this wide open and I revelled in it momentarily before remembering that I could, in fact, head upstairs. I'm about 90kg and as such, I'm often very aware of my weight when climbing anything. Thankfully, the spiral staircase is actually quite solid and never once complained about me clambering up and down it as I went about my business during the E3 2017 conference. Upstairs is a rather spacious landing about half the size of the living area downstairs. A massive, very comfortable kingsize bed sits against the south wall, putting Santa Monica Boulevard directly behind you. This was momentarily a concern for me, traffic in Los Angeles is a constant background hum, the honking of horns is a part of the city soundscape. How would I ever get any sleep? Imagine my surprise when, by night, I was never once troubled. Literally no engine noise made it into the room and I slept soundly the entire night, one of the first complete nights of sleep I'd experienced since my arrival. They definitely get the tick for soundproofing. This is a beautiful, luxurious room that affords a stay beyond the criminally short single night I was very generously provided. I t is comfortable, quiet, cool in the blazing LA summer and spacious in a way many other hotel rooms aren't. All in the heart of a bustling West Hollywood. I can't wait to come back.

● Timothy Spall, Rachel Weisz and Tom Wilkinson star in the burden-of-proof court-room drama, Denial. FILM: DENIAL: Genre: Drama/True Story. Cast: Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Spall, Alex Jennings. Year: 2016. Rating: M. Length: 109 Minutes. Stars: ***½ Verdict: Compelling and thought provoking burden-of-proof courtroom drama based on the true story of acclaimed writer and historian Deborah E. Lipstadt and her battle for historical truth to prove the Holocaust actually occurred when David Irving, a renowned denier, sues her for libel. In the 1996 David Irving v Penguin Books and Deborah Lipstadt law suit British author David Irving asserted that Lipstadt had libeled him in her book Denying the Holocaust. Superbly and richly written for the screen by David Hare (The Hours/ The Reader), from the book "History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier" by Deborah E. Lipstadt, and tautly and respectfully directed by Mick Jackson (Threads/The Bodyguard/LA Story). Along with the stellar cast that all excel in their respective roles, Rachel Weisz as the steadfast and combative Deborah E. Lipstadt, Timothy Spall as Holocaust denier David Irving, Tom Wilkinson as her libel lawyer, and Alex Jennings as the Mr. Justice Sir Charles Gray. This is a gripping, highly emotional, haunting and unforgettable experience, made all the more moving as it was actually filmed in part at the notorious Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in Poland. FILM: GOING IN STYLE: Genre: Crime/Comedy. Cast: Alan Arkin, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Ann-Margret, Matt Dillon. Year: 2017. Rating: M. Length: 96 Minutes. Stars: **½ Verdict: With pensions cancelled, ill health and mounting problems, three desperate senior citizens [retirees] and lifelong friends decide to rob a bank, but not all goes to plan. Predictably formulaic, safe and fairly amiable 'connect-the-dots' reboot of the far superior 1979 comedy-drama of the same name directed by Martin Brest (Midnight Run) and starring George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg. All that made the original a charming, poignant, funny, bittersweet and heartfelt experience and memorable social commentary on growing old and the circumstances of what we could be driven to, is missing here. The chemistry between Alan Arkin, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman keep it afloat which, unlike in the original, they deliver exactly what you expect of them, and again, unlike the original, they lose reality along the way through lame comedy and cliché. Trying to appeal to all audience age groups, the real crime of this heist-comedy 'over-the-hill-gang' crime-caper remake is the waste of originality, emotion, conviction, talent and time, but the real bonus here is there is a warm hearted 1979 gem out there just waiting to be experienced. FILM: A MAN CALLED OVE: Genre: Comedy/Drama/Swedish. Cast: Rolf Lassgard, Bahar Pars, Filip Berg. Year: 2015. Rating: M. Length: 116 Minutes. Stars: ***½ Verdict: Delightfully bittersweet journey of an ill-tempered, isolated grumpy man retiree who several years earlier was deposed as president of the condominium association, but he could not give a damn about being deposed and therefore keeps looking over the neighbourhood with an iron fist. Spending his spare time visiting his wife's grave, Ove has finally given up on life, just as an unlikely friendship develops with his boisterous new neighbours.Nominated for Best Foreign Film, this is a delightful comedy-drama about unexpected friendship, love and the importance of surrounding yourself with the proper tools. Highly reflective of 2014's "St. Vincent" starring Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy and Naomi Watts, "A Man Called Ove" supplies far more depth of character and a compelling "back-story," through flashbacks from childhood to his present day, as to how he became exactly what he is. Direction and performances from the diverse cast (most notably Rolf Lassgard as Ove), all combine to create a darkly funny, sweet, tragic, heart-warming, poignant, lyrically haunting and beautifully balanced journey on the life of a lonely but extraordinary human being, a journey you will not regret going on.

■ Whenever you mention the name Alan Jones these days people immediately think of the Australian radio broadcaster on 2GB. But there was a famous American singer and film star during the Golden Days of Hollywood who had a hit with a song called The Donkey Serenade in 1937. Allan Jones was born Theodore Allen Jones in Pennsylvania in 1907. He worked with his father in the coal mines until the age of 26 when he won a University Scholarship to study music. Allan received classical training and got sing in several Broadway musicals before breaking into films with a small singing role in the Jean Harlow MGM film Reckless in 1935. Allan was noticed by the studio and cast in the Marx Brothers film A Night at the Opera where he sang two songs Alone and Cosi - Cosa. In the 1936 version of Showboat, Allan Jones played ‘Gaylord Ravenal’ opposite the beautiful Irene Dunne. I think this black-and-white classic is the best film version of Showboat. During the making of The Great Ziegfeld, Dennis Morgan mimed the voice of Allan Jones singing A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody in a big musical production number as he walked down a huge wedding cake. In 1937 Allan was cast in another Marx Brothers film A Day at the Races. He had a small role as the opera singer in Rosemarie and loved working with Jeanette McDonald.


Whatever Happened To ... Allan Jones

By Kevin Trask of 3AW and 96.5 Inner FM

His next film with MGM was Everybody Sing and Allan coached a very young Judy Garland in some of her scenes. In The Firefly, Allan was once again cast opposite Jeanette McDonald and sang Rudolf Friml's composition The Donkey Serenade which was to become his signature tune. Allan played the leading role in The Boys from Syracuse in 1940. His next film was A Night in the Tropics and this film had a disastrous effect on his film career. Allan and Robert Cummings were the two leads but the director was keen to introduce two new comedians called Abbott and Costello. The comedy team were only supposed to do one sketch in the film but they were so good

● Allan Jones their roles were increased and Allan's role was reduced. Although Allan still appeared in films his career waned over the next five years. During the war years Allan was one of the first entertainers to volunteer to sing for the troops overseas. He returned to the stage in Great Britain and then toured the US with several offBroadway musicals.

Over the next 20 years Allan worked the nightclub circuit. In the early 1950s he appeared at the Tivoli Theatre in Melbourne and was a guest star on radio shows such as Australia's Hour of Song. Allan was married four times and had two children. His son Jack Jones became a very successful singer and sings the theme song for the television series The Love Boat. Allan Jones was a guest star in television shows such as 77 Sunset Strip and The Love Boat. During the 1970s Allan played the role of Don Quixote in stage productions of Man of La Mancha. I met Allan Jones and recorded several radio interviews with him when he was here in Melbourne in 1991 for a concert at the Melbourne Town Hall. Shortly after the Melbourne visit Allan Jones passed away of lung cancer at the age of 84 After all these years I still enjoy listening to his version of The Donkey Serenade.

Tales from Australia’s Outback Legend ■ When I first moved to Blairgowrie 50 years ago, one of the first structures I noticed, after having marvelled at the sea and the sand, was the Blairgowrie jetty. It was a flimsy little construction, just three planks wide, atop some spindly supports. I've fished from it, fallen off it, watched whales jumping around from it, poked stingrays with long sticks beside it, escorted young ladies along it, and often dived off it. I have also watched as it's been transposed over the years from its humble beginnings to the solid concrete structure it is today. And there's even a huge marina jutting out from it now. The windward side of this marina is a wooden barrier, protecting the boats from any recalcitrant northerlies. However, this wood is now full of shipworms, and is due for replacement. Not only, however, are the worms there, but a colony of sponges reside there as well. I am not a diver, so I've never noticed them, but they do seem to be important in the scheme of things. So, according to Nicole Morton, of Dive2U, who dives there regularly, the BYS, and Aegir Divers, who are replacing the wall, are combining to save the sponges, rather than having them discarded with the old wall. They will remove them, and glue them to the new wall. Highly environmentally responsible - better than ending up at the tip. ■ I have never been much on pranks and practical jokes - some people thrive on them, but not I. And I've heard of many such situations regarding reptiles. A construction worker years ago was startled to find a tiger snake nestling in his lunch box. His mate had killed it earlier, and secreted it there - that did the trick. And then there are countless instances of people scaring their mates or their girlfriends with fake snakes, which can look decidedly real. And the NT has more than its share of scallywags, often mischievously spurred on with alcohol, so it's not surprising that there are somewhat bizarre episodes every so often. Like the gentleman who inserted a

The Outback Legend

with Nick Le Souef Lightning Ridge Opals 63 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne Phone 9654 4444 penny bunger in his bottom, and lit it, a few years ago. A trip to the Darwin Hospital with second degree burns. And last week one young lady was awakened by her flatmate to inform her that there was a 6 foot crocodile in her bathroom. Sure enough, there it was on the floor. Although its jaws were tied, its claws were still unhinged - these and its tail can inflict significant damage. Some prank! Crocs are in fact quite good business in the NT - the Government, if returned to power in the next election, has promised to double the industry. Its current value is about $25m, so they'll always be on the front pages. ■ There is much talk about the homeless on the streets of Melbourne. I recall walking past one gentleman in Flinders Lane a couple of years ago - he was in a small alcove which was just big enough to fit him and his blanket and a pillow - his shoes were neatly placed at the foot of his

bed. I walked past later and he had gone, with just a pile of vomit to indicate that he had been there. I thought at the time that when I got up in the morning, I had a myriad of choices. Whether to have a shower, clean my teeth, which clothes to wear, what to have for breakfast. He had none of these - he just got up, put his shoes on, and shuffled off. Recently in Footscray there was a homeless man sleeping by an ATM, so the bank closed this machine, with a sign on the window saying that an "inconsiderate" person had forced this issue. About six months ago I encountered a few Territory Aborigines who were visiting Melbourne and had similarly chosen to set up camp outside the Combank in Swanston St. No window notices here - a speaker playing Joan Sutherland boomed out all night. Soon cleared that spot. ■ When one wanders around the streets of Alice Springs one encounters many Aboriginal individuals, including many children. And they are so cute, with their white teeth and innocent wide smiles and a bright darting eyes. Cute though they are now, I always thought, this will usually sadly fade as they grow up, when the inevitability of their social situation strikes home, and low self esteem, and peer pressure will take their toll on their appearance and demeanor. But occasionally I would strike some individuals who had managed to buck this trend, and strode proudly about. There is one such lady currently in Darwin, Magnolia Maymuru, from Yirrkala, in Arnhem Land. One reads about Hollywood stars being discovered in shopping malls she was spotted at an AGM in Darwin and offered a modelling opportunity. However she decided to finish her education, and now, at 19, has decided to give it a go. She ended up at NT Fashion Week last year, and was crowned NT Miss World Australia winner. And now she's just been named the Face of Chadstone. Good on her. ■ Not only are there bizarre practi-

cal jokers afoot in the Territory, but the antics of some Territorians as they compete in official activities are also somewhat eccentric. Each rodeo or weekend event in a country town has its own bizarre events. There is cow-pat tossing, pig catching, lizard and frog racing, with the Beer-can Regatta. And just last week in Darwin there was another notable event. The McGrath Foundation is a worthy recipient of much charity, so they decided on the Miss Muddy Event to raise some funds.

This was a female-only obstacle course, held at the Hidden Valley Raceway. A couple of thousand women turned up for the event, which was run over 5 kms. So off they went, down water slides, into ice baths, dodging past paint cannons, and diving into jelly baths and mud pits. Sounds like to Sir Les Patterson would have enjoyed the day. - Nick Le Souef ‘The Outback Legend Originally published on August 10, 2016

OK. With John O’Keefe Coming your way

■ In the seventies KC amd the Sunshine Band was the hottest group around the world. Well, they've regrouped and the 15-piece band are due to play gigs in Australia, not once, but two very different concerts. First is a Cruise and Groove voyage with guests including Village People, JPY, Marcia Hines and others. Then they will be returning for a national tour December 7 -17. Too good to miss.

They’re back

■ John Blackman and his cheeky sidekick Dickie Knee are back in town and on our TV screens. This time in a TV spot pushing a joint pain remedy that's just the solution - you guessed it, for dickie knees. Boom, boom. Another group making a welcome return is the Masters Apprentices, who after 50 years will blast off at a reunion concert, Corner Hotel, Richmond on September 1. Be there.

Mike visits Melbourne

■ These days Gold Logie winner Mike Walsh calls London his home and right now he is visiting friends and checking on his theatrical interests in Australia Along the way has won a total of 24 Logies, and a OBE. My first encounter with Mike when he was chosen to ring the bell at junior school The rest is history.

Sam returns

■ Big, bad Sam Keckovich is soon to return to our small screen, this time presenting a commercial for Telstra Phonewords. The commercial shows Sam at his crazy best, sitting behind a presentation desk as outspoken as ever like his pal Donald J. Trump when the two egos clashed at a meeting in Trump Towers.

Boy from Broadie

■ Another arm of Eddie McGuire's business empire is Twenty 3 who amongst many services provide matching clients to sporting events. Whoops, make that in past tense as Australia Post has bailed as sponsor of next Stawell Gift. Get Eddie on the blower if you'd like to have your name linked to Australia's richest footrace.

Country Crossroads

Eltham link to Artists’ Society

By Rob Foenander info@countrycrossroads

New for Gary ■ Gary Ellis has released his new album, This One's Just For You, to an excited local and international list of fans. The Narre Warren singer was this year inducted into the Australian Country Music Hands of Fame in a ceremony conducted in Tamworth. The overdue and well deserved award adds to the numerous well documented achievements Gary has added to his career that has spanned over six decades. More info: contact Gary, 9705 7555.

Sounds like Donnie ■ Australian music legend Donnie Sutherland will be one of a number of special guests in Melbourne next month to help celebrate 50 years in the life and times of Alston Koch. Also confirmed for the September extravaganza will be renowned singer Frank Ifield who along with the other guests will meet and greet the public at the dinner and show. Alston will also be in town for the world premiere of his movie According to Matthew. Tickets and information for both events at the Grand Receptions, Mulgrave.

Collegians on fire ■ Melbourne rockers Collegians are taking on the world with their unique brand of bitter sweet alt rock. The highly experienced outfit boasts a talented line up of renowned musicians who are currently in the studio recording their new album.

■ Close friends Walter Walthers and Tom Roberts were both members of the Victorian Artists’ Society, which began in the late 1800s. Back in August 1891, the Society agreed to provide 16 guarantors who had put up £100 each to complete the Victorian Artists Society Building which stands at 430 Albert St, East Melbourne, with a lien over all of the Societys' assets. Today that amount of funds is said to be worth in the vicinity of $7.5 million. A search through the archives uncovered the original document signed by well know Australia artist Tom Roberts, a member of Victorian Artists Society Council, a day after the meeting with the Union Bank of Australia Ltd. The letter outlines the details of the guarantees. The Victoria Artists Society, which has had under taken extensive restoration of the building to protect its structural and heritage significance, is also facing funding issues. With no heritage funding available to protect one Victoria's most historical heritage buildings of Melbourne, the Victorian Artists Society - on its own,and with some help from supporters - has raised $1.3 million in the past two years to repair damage and restore the building which sits on Crown Land. A further $300,000 is needed to complete the restoration for future generation of artists.

“This is a good time of the year to plant native plants as it gives them a chance to establish their root system over spring before having to survive the dry and heat of summer,” Ms Kosch said. “Re-establishing native riparian vegetation, including trees, shrubs, grasses and ground covers, will help improve the health of the river. “Over time the trees will grow large enough to provide shade and a natural supply of branches and leaf litter to the stream, which will provide important habitat and food for fish.” Ms Kosch said this was the second time VFFA members had helped with a planting project. “We really appreciate their support and look forward to them getting involved in similar activities at this and other locations in the area in the future,” she said. The event was funded through the Victorian Government’s Angler Riparian Partnership Program.

Local History

Ned Kelly was frequent visitor at Happy Valley ■ “Whilst the first people in this area were the Aborigines, their lives were to change forever with the expedition of Hume and Hovell in 1824,” said The History of Flowerdale, compiled by Gaye Hine in 1991. “Their expedition was to open up for settlement in the Yea district. “On Tuesday, December 7, 1824, they had crossed high and rugged hills and came to a swift flowing creek with a pebbly bottom, where they saw king parrots and consequently named the creek The King Parrot. “Here the going became impossible. It appears they battled leeches, impenetrable scrub, rocky ranges and lack of water, travelling in a creek, passing a grassy valley, thought to be Happy Valley of Flowerdale. “The area became impassable, so after naming the area Mt Dis-appointment they returned to the King Parrot Creek, following it downstream through Strath Creek, Kilmore and on to Port Phillip Bay. “The first settlers in the Flowerdale area were Farquhar MacKenzie, who took up Flowerdale Station in 1839 and Charles Hutton took up land beside Flowerdale Station and these two properties amalgamated in 1845. “The combined property areas totally approx. 10,000 acres. “Captain McKenzie sold the estate in 1850 to J. Aitken who in turn sold it to Donald Ferguson. Aitken was drowned in a waterhole below the homestead in 1857. “Ferguson’s sons managed the property until 1903 when it was sold to Tyson and Cunningham. “In 1908 it was resold to Mr Trescowthick and in 1912 to Mr Alex Lane who modernised and rebuilt the homestead. “Subsequent owners of the Flowerdale Station were: ■ 1927 (approx.): Mr Pearce, ■ 1930: Mr Gardiner, ■ mid-1930s: Mr Sargood, ■ 1939: G. Muller leased the property, ■ 1941: Tehan Family bought the property, ■ 1987” Tehan Family sold the property to the ANZ Bank.” ★ Gaye Hine quoted Elaine White (nee McKenzie) on the history of her family: “Farquhar MacKenzie was born at Kerrisdale Gairlock in Ross Shire, Scotland, on March 11, 1811. “He was the youngest son of Captain Kenneth MacKenzie, who had served in India, being present at the siege of Serangapaten, and Farquhar was known as the ‘The Younger of Gairlock’. “He arrived in Sydney about 1832-34 and travelled with another man looking for suitable country to settle. “He eventually arrived at ‘Taradale’, the Goulburn property of John Murchison. “Later MacKenzie entered into partnership with Murchison and purchasing sheep from the famous MacArthur flocks, went with men to Monaro. “He found the climate too cold after long residence in Java and decided to go in to Victoria with a party amongst whom were Kent Hughes, Peter Snodgrass, Mr Murdock, Dr Dixon and James Campbell. “Those men came over the Gard-

However, when the lease had to be taken out , the size of the property diminished considerably. “In 1857, William McClelland purchased 90 acres for £90. On this land he built a home of blackwood slabs from the local area. “He also had a licence for an inn, catering for the passing traffic from Melbourne to the goldfields in the Woods Point area. “A frequent viksitor to Happy Valley was Ned Kelly and his friends - making use of the wayside inn stables for an overnight break. “The only way the McClelland family knew that Ned had called was because he always left a gold coin under the matting. “Ned was ‘wanted’ at this time and he didn’t want his presence to embarrass the McClelland family. “The McClelland and Kelly families were acquainted from when they had lived at Wallan. “William and Ann McClelland had 10 children. One of the daughters, Mary Ann, bought had the family property with her husband in 1911 and lived at Happy Valley until 1920 when she died. “Mrs Ann McClelland died and was buried on the property in 1867. He grave had to be moved to make waty for a road in the early 1940s, so soil was taken and interred at the Melbourne Cemetery. “William McClelland died in 1877, but the property was carried on by his family. “Owners of Happy Valley: ■ William Ernest McClelland, 1857 ■ William James Copewell, 1929 ■ Murlie Benson, 1935 ■ Richard Smith Benson, 1938 ■ Leonard Edward Dotter, 1945 ■ Claude Harold Probert, 1945 ■ Alan Ross Wakefield, 1967 ■ Mr Broon/Smith Brothers, 1981 ■ Royce Kronborg, 1985. ★ Charles Hugh McKenzie was born in Hobart Town, Tasmania in 1837. His father, Jonathon, owned anm inn and a farm in Hobart but little is known as to why he emigrated to Australia or why he chose to settle in Hobart Town; although it is a well known fact that innkeepers in the early days of the colonies did very well with a very thirsty, hard-drinking clientele. He married Mary Ann Langham and Charles Hugh was their first child, noted The History of Flowerdale. Charles came to Victoria in 1856

and bought land just south of Yea on the Flatlead Lane. Farquhar MacKenzie was his uncle and Charles moved here because of his uncle’s glowing report of the good land in the Upper Goulburn district. Charles discovered gold in his land at Flatlead Lane and the gold rush was in full swing in the district. Charles caught the gold fever. He borrowed money on the farm to mine at Junction Hill. On the advice of a mining surveyor he had men working on a tunnel called the ‘FreemasonsTunnel’ to burrow through the side of the hill to a reef which they were mining from a shaft sunk above. The theory was that it would be cheaper to tunnel through than sink the shaft any deeper. However, the men struck an underground stream and the tunnel had to be abandoned. because of the water pouring through the roof. Water is still pouring out of the tunnel today. Charles McKenzie lost all his money and the farm at Flatlead Lane in this venture but not his enthusiasm for gold. He left Yea in the late 1870s to try his luck on the Bathurst (NSW) goldfields. During his 20-odd years living at Junction Hill he married Emma Thorley and had 11 children. They married on February 27, 1859; he was 22, and she was 17. His father was listed on the marriage certificate as a farmer and her father as a shepherd. James Alfred was born in 1861, Charles Hugh in 1862, Edward John in 1864, twins Reuben and George Henry were born in 1866, however Reuben died at about 12 months old at George died at seven years of age. Emma wasw born in 1868, Miriam in 1872, Ellen in 1874, William in 1876, Helen in 1881, and Lily in 1885. The two elder sons James Alfred (Jim) and Charles Hugh (Jnr) were already young men working as carriers and stayed on in Yea when the rest of the family moved to Bathurst. Charles and Jim worked a bullock team carrying supplies from Whittlesea railhead to Yea until the rail line in Yea was opened in 1883. The trip with the bullock team took three days with overnight camps at Kinglake West and the on the creek at the foot of Junction Hill (now Cunninghams). They had to get two good watch dogs because the aborigines at Kinglake would always try to steal supplies from the wagon while they were camped there overnight. Charlesand Jim had to strike camp and have the team hitched ready to leave the camp at the Flowerdale side of Juncton Hill at break o’day to get to Yea in time to unload before dark. This is bow Break-O’-Day Road got its name. After the rail line came through, Jim went to work logging and saw milling at Limestone and his history is well documented in Timber Mountain by J. Houghton. Charles Hugh Snr still had a lease on the Crown Land at Junction Hill which Charles (Jnr) bought from the crown in 1902, and he purchased more land at Junction and two properties on the Break-O’-Day Road over the years.

Local History Charles Hugh McKenzie (Jnr) married Elizabeth Hurrey from Yan Yean on November 24, 1891. No doubt they had met when he was carrying from Whittlesea. He became the mailman from Yea to Glenburn through Break-O’Day Rd to Flowerdale Post Office (Cunninghams) to Yea, and was to do this 31 years. ‘Mailman Mac’ became a firm friend to many people along the route and carried not only the mail, but bread, medicines, meat, groceries and indeed any messages for those isolated families. It is reported that he never wrote anything down but he never forgot a thing. He had a covered wagon for the mail run which came on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. He was accorded a huge farewell at the Flowerdale Hall at the end of his 31 years and presented with a clock. Charles and Elizabeth had 11 children. Ruby Victoria was born in 1893, Thomas Charles 1895, Mary Jane Elizabeth 1897, William Henry 1899, Efferham 1901, Charles 1903, Ivy Alice 1904, VioletAdelaide 1906, Cubin 1908, Belle 1911 and Allan 1913. The sons all settled in Flowerdale on farms. Originally all the sheep from the various farms were walked back to the original homestead at Junction Hill each year for shearing and dipping and all the brothers worked together to shear all the mobs but eventually in the 1950s the traffic on the main road made this difficult and sheds were built on the Break-O’-Day properties and the big shearing at Junction Hill became a thing of the past. During the war years when petrol was scarce, a steam boiler was brought back into service to drive the five-shed shearing plant. Unfortunately this shed with its original bush carpentry framing and pens and the steam boiler, dinkey engine and all the drive belts still intact, was burnt down in the 1981 fire which burnt through Homewood and Junction Hill through to Glenburn. Tom McKenzie worked on the Roads Board as a young man and was tragically killed when a bank of gravel collapsed on him. His horse, hitched to the tip dray, stood patiently at the spot for several hours before the accident was discovered. A family from Flowerdale, on their way to Yea in their horse and jinker, saw the horse and dray on the way in to Yea and noticed it was still there, apparently unattended when they were returning home. William stayed home on the farm at Junction Hill until the severe drought of the 1940s forced him to seek employment off the farm. He worked on the Yea Shire Council as a grader driver for 24 years until retirement. The grading in the 1940s was done with a horse grader and if he was working a long way from home he would have to camp out during the week either hobbling the horses or turning them into a nearby paddock. He became very well known from Yea to Kinglake and kept most people’s private roads well graded as well as the public roads. At home he established a Cheviot sheep stud and was the first in Victoria and the third in Australia to import these sheep from New Zealand. They were well suited to the rough Junction Hill country. William married Eileen Gibbs in 1940 and had two children, Elaine and John.

They had five children: John, Frank, the way to Yea. In 1914 Mary went to live with Alan, Blanche and Ann. The oldest boy attending school her great grandmother and great The land at Flowerdale (along the at the time drove the wagon and they aunt, a mile from home and close to Strath Creek Road) was purchased had many an adventure with bolting the school.

They lived at Coburg and As the older boys had all left men had gone to war. leased the land to Walter Moore.

During the depression years, their sons John (Jack) and Frabk came to Flowerdale to run the dairy farm. The Rowe brothers ran the dairy farm until the property was sold to Rankins. Jack and Frank Rowe milked 36 to 40 cows in the dairy on Strath Creek Rd. The cream was collected twice weekly and taken to Yea. Jack Rowe married Lilly Small in 1941. They had three children, Glenda, John (Jackson) and Peter. Lil and Kack lived in their first house on the right along the Strath Creek Road. Their dairy property was named ‘Munaro’ and extended along the flats on both sides of the Strath Creek Road. ★ The Roycroft Family Delving into the family history had led Ross Roycroft to discovering that one of his ancestors was a ‘ticket-of-leave’ man. William Callender (or Rafferty), Convict No 2460, was transported to Van Dieman’s Land in 1839 at the age of 13 years for stealing some Shrub liquor (plum wine or plum in brandy) from his neighbour, Mrs Gilchrist. But this was William’s fourth offence - his other misdemeanors included house breaking in 1836, for which he was jailed for four months, stealing rags in 1837 - 40 days imprisonment, and theft of lead in 1837. William Callender was born in 1825, the son of Jean and Arthur, who was a sailor. Jean died in 1837, having had several convictions. Arthur went missing - presumed lost at sea. The family lived at Theses Clop, on the border of England and Scotland. The magistrate, in his summing up of the trial, referred to William’s life of crime, that he supported himself by thieving and pilferring, living in an area of ill repute. (Little wonder, as William had been left without either parents or a home.) He was freed - on a ticket-ofleave at the age of 20 (having served seven years) and travelled to Portland with the Henty Brothers. At Portland, William married Harriet Elizabeth Harmen in 1852. Harriet had 26 pregnancies: 16 children survived to be baptised. Harriet remarried John Booth in 1884 and came to live at Taggerty. They took up land at Flowerdale in 184, known as Callenders Flat, a three-acre block on which they established a market garden. This is where Annie Callemder was born around 1884. Joseph Roycroft came out from Ireland after the potato famine in the late 1880s-90s. Joseph married Ann Callender and they worked at dairy farm, leasing land around Flowerdale. Great grandmother Roycroft was known to have walked to Whittlesea to sell butter! Joseph and Ann had seven children: Tom, Ted, Linda, Maude, Charlie, Mick and Bill. They lived in the area behind the Flowerdale Hotel which later belonged to McVeans and then to Stan Knight. All children attended the BreakO’-Day School. As the horseman of the family, Bill Roycroft recalls riding to school bareback, jumping his horse over logs and puddles along the way. Mrs Gladys Stafford, his teacher, recalls that he was a great horseman, even then.

Local Environment

Protecting the Yarra River, tributaries ■ State politicians Cindy McLeish and Danielle Green both addressed the proximity of the Yarra River to their electorates, in State Parliament last week. Ms McLeish traced the route of the Yarra through areas including Yarra Glen, Christmas Hills and Bend of Isles. Ms Green referred to the major waterway extending through areas including North Warrandyte, Research and Eltham South. Both spoke as the Yarra River Protection (Wilip-Gin Birrarung Murron) Bill 2017 was debated. “I rise to join the debate on the Yarra River Protection (Wilip-gin Birrarung murron) Bill 2017 and to note that ‘Wilip-gin Birrarung murron’ actually means ‘keep the Birrarung alive’,” Ms McLeish said. “This bill at the very high level provides for a land use plan and management plan for the Yarra River and its and. “I fear that some members of the government do not actually understand that the Yarra River is some 242 kilometres long. “The previous member described it as being an urban river, forgetting that all rivers originate in the highlands. “This river has its origins towards Baw Baw and the Yarra Ranges National Park and includes the Upper Yarra Reservoir. “Of that 242 kilometres I think the lion’s share is in my electorate,” Ms McLeish said. “I would say that if you look at the maps, probably half of it is in my electorate. It runs through municipalities and localities that a lot of you will not have heard of — Reefton, McMahons Creek, East Warburton, Warburton, Millgrove, Wesburn, Yarra Junction, Launching Place, Woori Yallock, Badger Creek, Healesville, Tarrawarra,Yarra Glen, Christmas Hills and down through to Bend of Islands — and these are all in my electorate — before it makes its way through the more urban areas and into Port Phillip Bay. “I note that the Parks Victoria website refers to the Yarra River as having a multitude of picturesque settings and to the banks of the river as having a number of barbecue and picnic facilities, fishing platforms and jetties. “They do tend to be down at the bottom end. I think a lot of people in my electorate would like to see many of those features further up. “There are trails and paths that cater for cyclists, joggers and walkers, and we certainly have the Warburton rail trail. “But in the Yarra River park notes visitors guide, the map just stops east of Yarra Bend Park. “When we are talking about the management of the Yarra River as a whole — its entirety — then perhaps Parks Victoria, which is one of the entities here, needs to review its view on what the Yarra River is. “The main purposes of this bill are to provide for the establishment of an overarching policy and planning framework for the river, to establish the Birrarung Council, to provide for the declaration of the Greater Yarra Urban Parklands, to amend various acts in relation to the management of the river and to make other consequential amendments. “Over a long period of time the Liberals and The Nationals have

worked together and had great protections for the Yarra. “In the Hamer and Borthwick days, when the land was valued and nurtured, our open space was given pride of place, and the river certainly is that. “More recently under the Baillieu and Napthine governments the then Minister for Planning put in planning controls so that we did not see the debacle of overdevelopment of the Yarra around Richmond and Abbotsford, which is what has happened. “Also the former Minister for Environment and Climate Change, the member for Warrandyte, started this conversation around protecting the Yarra. “It is fair to say that for the last 10 years the community has played an important role, and we have heard the Yarra Riverkeeper Association being quite vocal in that time in meetings with a quite a number of us. “The management of the river to date has been inconsistent and piecemeal. “It runs through many electorates and many councils, and there are all manner of different uses. “This bill identifies about 800 parcels of Crown land that will be impacted. It is a little bit doubtful whether that is just 800, because we are not sure about the tributaries and whether or not the tributaries can or will be included. “I look at tributaries such as the Little Yarra River, Hoddles Creek and the Woori Yallock Creek in my area but also tributaries like the Maribyrnong and the Moonee Ponds Creek. “It could have some greater impacts than we might be led to believe at the moment. “Given this inconsistent approach, a different approach is required for the health and sustainability of the river. “Geoffrey Blainey in his book A History of Victoria refers to the Yarra River as the artery of early Melbourne, and indeed it was. “Equally for the traditional custodians this river would have been extremely important as a water source, for agriculture and for recreational purposes. “This bill recognises the role that various Aboriginal groups have played in the past and indeed an important role that they can play in the future. “This bill sees the Birrarung Council being set up to act as an independent voice for the river, and it sets out that the Yarra strategic plan will provide the overarching framework. “It is important that the voice is independent and there are a number

of public entities involved. “I know that Melbourne Water will be the lead, and they have had their own opinion of how the river should be managed. “It will be interesting, given the guiding principles, to see how they are going to work with them. “Part 2 of the bill refers to the ‘Yarra protection principles’. We have the recreational, social, managerial, cultural and environmental principles. “I am sure at times there will be conflicts here, and I am not sure how they will be managed and who will have the loudest voice. “The river has been used for recreational purposes by the traditional custodians and by ourselves since white settlement. “There is now rowing, and there are ferries for tourists. There is kayaking, and upstream you can swim. “The member for Melbourne said, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if the health of the Yarra and was such that we could swim in it’. “More and more in my electorate I see the river being closed off. Access has been restricted for people who would love to be able to access it for recreational purposes and would love to be able to access it for swimming. “At the moment I think Warburton is the only place where you can, and it gets very crowded because people love to swim in rivers. “I am hoping that with the traditional custodians being involved quite heavily through having a voice on the council these recreational purposes and the way they use the river for recreation will be considered in line with some of the other areas. “I want to touch on the cultural principles. We are looking at values that are tangible and intangible and at the protection of our heritage. “The bill itself refers to Aboriginal cultural values, heritage and knowledge of the Yarra River land being acknowledged, reflected, protected and promoted. “I draw the attention of the house to Aboriginal traditional land management techniques, and I would like to see these adopted through this process. “Some of you may have read the book Dark Emu by Bruce Pascoe, in which he puts forward the argument that Aboriginal people were not hunters and gatherers but were very active as farmers, sowing, harvesting, fishing and using irrigation as well — a lot of the techniques that we have used. “It would be wonderful to see these reflected through the management provided for under this bill.

“I also think it would be wonderful if cool burning, their firestick program, was able to be adopted to manage Crown land — really going back to their values and the way that they did things. “I tend to think that when we look at some of the cultural things we may overlook this. “In my electorate Aunty Dot Peters, who is very big on weaving and making eel traps and things like that, has passed that on, and Brooke Wandin has been involved in some of that lately as well. “I would think there would be a lot of opportunity to consider some of the longstanding, very traditional techniques that the Aboriginal people adopted through recreation because they used the river for swimming and had very open points of access for all of them to get to the river and enjoy it. “In my electorate I see more and more that the river is closed off to that. “I can see that at times there will be conflict, and how this conflict will be managed does concern me. “At the moment we are seeing a lot more interaction between wildlife, people and cars. “All the entities involved will very much need to be mindful of these interactions because sometimes

people do not always come off best — and nor do animals. There are often losers in these interactions. “I want to also mention a phrase that was given to me by the Yarra RiverkeeperAssociation in referring to the river: ‘If you don’t see it, you won’t love it’. It is really important that we do see it. We see it downtown as a feature of the city, and visitors come and they walk along it and look at it. It is a real feature and an absolutely positive thing for Melbourne. “Further out, people who live on the Bend of Islands or at North Warrandyte love their features of the river, but they can see it. “We need to make sure that, given the love that it deserves and will get through this holistic management, people are able to see it and understand it, and we need to make sure that those on the government benches understand that this is not a city river. “It is extremely disappointing when we are talking about a bill that is so significant that those opposite really think that it is only this bottom end that is important. “It runs for 242 kilometres and, as I said, much of it is in my electorate. “I hope that through this bill the protections do occur,” Ms McLeish said.

Birrarung Council mooted ■ “It is a great privilege to join the debate on the Yarra River Protection (Wilip-gin Birrarung murron) Bill 2017,” Yan Yean MLA Danielle Green told the Legislative Assembly last week. “There are rare times in this place that one is filled with joy, and I can say I was filled with joy, emotion and pride to see the Wurundjeri elders take their rightful place and speak for the first time from the dispatch box since the establishment of this Parliament. “Seeing Aunty Alice Kolasa, Aunty Gail Smith and the other elders speaking in their Woi-wurrung language and introducing and speaking to this bill just shows that we are connecting and making sure that we right some wrongs and that we learn from the traditional custodians of this land and the richest continuous human culture known to us. “Since Europeans established themselves in this city of Melbourne, like we have done in many other places, we set ourselves up with our backs to the river, with our backs to that life force. “:We treated it like a drain. We disrespected it. We did not treat it with respect. We did not treat it as the life force that it is. “As a teenager I lived in Mildura, and it was a little bit the same there. The commercial heart and the civic leadership parts of Mildura had their backs to the Murray. “Now there are changes being made with the traditional custodians of the land in that place too. I think it shows us the way forward in terms of partnership, learning from each other and mutual respect. “I think we have shown some respect for the Yarra over time, but I think it is now the rightful time. But we have also shown a lot of disrespect, with sewerage connections and seepage into the Yarra, overshadowing it with buildings and just not respecting the traditional owners. “This bill establishes the Birrarung Council to provide advice to the minister in relation to Yarra River land and other land, the use and development of which may affect Yarra River land, and other matters, and to report annually to the minister on the implementation of a Yarra strategic plan. “I was privileged for the first 12 years of my time in this place to have the Yarra River as one of the boundaries of my electorate, at Eltham South, at Research, at North Warrandyte, at the Bend of Islands and at Christmas Hills. “It is a beautiful river. It is a diverse river. When I was a preschooler on hot nights my dad used to take me from our then home in Doncaster East to the river in Warrandyte. “I remember washing my feet in the river while wearing plastic sandals to protect my feet from the stones. I have taken my own children to swim in that same spot. We have kayaked there. “I have been pretty scared of some snakes in the river, but it is a beautiful place and it deserves our respect. “I also have the privilege to represent an area that has many tributaries of the Yarra River, in the Plenty River, Darebin Creek, Merri Creek and Watsons Creek. “The intent is to treat this river as one living and integrated natural entity, to value its life force and to grow and improve the public parks that exist along this river. “Private owners who have land abutting this river should not be concerned about this because it only covers public land,” Ms Green said.

Zac Pell started to get on top in the ruck in the third term but the Tigers ball use going inside 50 continued to be an issue, contrasting with the host’s fast moving game style. Riley Aldous shifted forward and proved a great target on the lead, halving many two-onone contests and slotting three goals, while Harrison Jarvie worked himself into the ground. Julian Mahon (one goal) was dangerous inside 50 and did a good defensive job when moved to the wing, Aidan McSpeerin ran hard both ways and Cameron Evans found plenty of the ball.

■ The Yea netballers finished off their homeand-away season in sensational style with four excellent wins over Yarra Junction. The A- and B-Grade sides both needed to win these games to ensure third ladder positions whilst C-Grade were able to snatch top spot from Belgrave to give themselves the first week of finals off. The D-Grade side cemented their third position on the ladder with a confident and team building victory. The sides will all be rested next week due to the bye and then the finals campaigns will begin the week after. Go Tigers!

defence to attack, combining really well with Cindy on the circles edge. Yarra Junction just had the edge though and took a handy two goal lead into the last break. The coaching team urged their charges to put in their biggest fight for the season and the girls did that in a gutsy performance. Junction got the first goals on the board and pushed the lead out to four but the Tigers stayed committed to their instructions and eventually the hard work paid off. Rhiannon, Rachel and Lauren were brilliant in defence, starting to force Junction into errors through their relentless defence. Kate and Cindy were fantastic with their ball movement and positioning in the goal third and their delivery into Cindy and Reggie was spot on. The whole team lifted as one and they chipped away at the lead before Reggie eventually put them in the lead with a great goal. Yea took the momentum and got out to a threegoal lead but Junction weren't done, scoring the next three to level the scores at 39. To their credit the Tigers didn't panic and after a strong rebound from Rhi the team brought the ball steadily down the court where Yea were able to score and retake the lead. Thankfully the Tigers didn't need to wait much longer for the final whistle and Reggie made the final margin two with a penalty goal after the siren. Fantastic commitment from the girls and a real will to win produced this important victory well done. Yea 41 def Yarra Junction 39 Goals: R. Bell 26, C. Hayes 15 Best: R. Normington, R. Aldous, C.

Yea had to win this game to cement third positon on the ladder going into finals in a few weeks. Meg and Nikki found their groove early, working well with each other and bringing midcourter's Sophie W and Chelsea into the game well. Soph had one of her best games so far this season, moving well and working at high intensity every quarter. Chelsea was yet again amazing through midcourt, applying some beautiful pressure all the way down the court, which helped defenders, Brooke and Bridget. Brooke had a solid start in GK picking off some passes coming into the ring, her rebounding was sensational and she gave everything she had. Bridget was yet again amazing. Taking some flying intercepts and rebounds. Sarah did an enormous amount of work out front, applying some good pressure. The second quarter was yet again the Tigers best quarter, shooting 14 goals to Yarra Junction shooting only seven. Right from defence to attacking everyone worked super hard to keep possession and score from turnovers. Everyone got behind one another and worked overtime for the full 15 minutes. Yea led 23 to 18 at the half-time break. The last half saw both Yea and Yarra Junction playing some beautiful netball. It was goal for goal during the third quarter, until Yea scored off Yarra Junction’s errors and Yea hit the lead. The Tigers took some awesome intercepts all the way down the court, presenting well to the ball and playing the safe option. Meg was outstanding in GS all game, shooting exceptionally well and working incredibly well with Nikki. All eight players showed that they are well and truly capable of winning some finals games when they play like they did on Saturday. It's been a long season and all the girls deserve the very best in the next few weeks. Yea has a general bye for Round 18, which means our next game will be in the finals period. Good luck girls and well done on a successful season so far. Yea 46 def Yarra Junction 35 Goals: M. Sundblom 30, N. Watts 16 Best: B. Lloyd, B. O'Dwyer, N. Watts Award: Meg Sundblom


After a heavy loss to Alexandra last week, the B-Grade girls needed to bounce back against Junction or risk losing their double chance in the finals. The first half was a tough tussle with not much separating the sides, all match ups on court were very even and the contests were tight. The lead changed several times throughout the first half and Yea were lucky enough to take a one-goal lead into half-time. After half-time Yarra Junction came out strong and unsettled the Tigers, who had made changes to their mid court following Cindy going down briefly. Chels put on the centre bib and after a challenging first few minutes of the half she really stepped up and provided great run and drive from


It was an awesome start by the Tigers on Saturday against Yarra Junction.We had many supporters come and watch our game so the pressure was on. It certainly didn't faze the C-Grade girls one bit as they put on a show. Deb and Ruby were sensation all game in defence, picking off some beautiful balls from Yarra Junction. Emily had one of her best games of the season. She took some flying intercepts, applying some awesome one on one pressure. She was vocal all game and helped out in attack as being the reset option. Jordan and Molly started off well in midcourt, working well with Jess and Fi. There were many options in our attacking third, which meant Yarra Junction had to work overtime., This certainly worked in the Tigers favour as we could out run them going into the second. Yea stepped it up in the second, pushing the lead out. C-Grade welcomed Jude back into the team. Everyone brought her back into the team and coach Lauren couldn't have asked for anything else. She was truly missed through the midcourt with her experience, she always applies pressure and plays the safest option. Molly adjusted well to Jude, really working the ball and feeding it appropriately to Jess and Fi. Jess had an awesome game, shooting 36 goals for the game, this was all with help from her fellow teammates and partner in crime Fiona, who also played one of her best games this season. Going into the second half the Tigers knew that they could play much better and really start implementing more one on one pressure all the way down the court. It started with Kim who was extremely vocal, encouraging and setting the play up in defence. She worked well with daughter Ruby and Deb. Attacking the Tigers drives got stronger and intensity lifted. Everyone found another gear until the last when the Tigers dropped off. They will work hard for the next couple of weeks, as they all know they have much more to show during

■ The AFLYarra Ranges League Round 17 last Saturday saw the Rebels travel to Yarra Glen for two games of football and four games of netball, the ground in perfect condition with the straw coloured grass. RESERVES The Reserves, after three big wins and with Jacob Brereton, Will Ingram, Jason Krijt, Daniel Rouget, Tom Rouget and Nick Waugh coming in to the side challenged top side Yarra Glen, who had only lost the one game. Alex started well as Jacob Brereton returning after a broken thumb, kicked an early goal. The Alex defence led by Paul Brooks and Chase Pearce were also on top early holding the top side out until half-way through the first quarter. Alexandra had their share of the play in the second quarter but could not finish and the pressure on the defence finally told as the home side broke through for two late goals before half time. The third quarter was also tight as play rebounded between the half-back lines with many ball-ups and scrimmages as all players went in hard, Alex was still a chance at the last change but the home side kicked the first last quarter goal which virtually sealed the game. Whilst the Rebels fought the game out the inability to get reward for effort up forward was the main difference between the teams. Whilst a couple of young players, Brayden Burchall and Tom Rouget impressed it was experienced players like Corey Jack, Paul Brooks and Chase Pearce in defence who led the way. Jacob Brereton, Daniel Rouget and Daniel Roper also played well. Alex 4.5 (29) lost to Yarra Glen 11.9 (75).

SENIORS The Seniors, after successive wins, made four changes to the team with Michael Coombs, Brent McDonald, Jasper Rouget and Jake Steyger coming in to replace Nathan Dundas, Zach Heaslip, Daniel Rouget and Nick Waugh, were aiming for a win with fifth place still not finalised. Alexandra began kicking to the Healesville road end but it was the home side that kicked the first goal but Alex was able to quickly reply when Lee Ragg and Jasper Rouget worked the ball forward and Chris Mullins goaled from a ‘one-on-one’ contest. The Alex defence through Scott Heveren cleared the next Yarra Glen attack and Steyger was able to find Brayden Norris for his first goal of the game before Yarra Glen kicked a second goal then a third with a great snap shot from the "impossible" angle. Alex attacked taking on the game and Matt Steiner and Brayden Norris assisted Scott Hill to again be among the goal kickers. Jack Goonan cleared in dashing style and Hill, this time assisted by a 50-metre penalty easily added to his tally as both sides added behinds as Alex took the narrowest of leads to the quarter-time break. The home side kicked the first three goals of the second quarter and put the Alex defence under pressure, Jordan Purcell was composed as he intercepted threats and found team mates with his disposal. Yarra Glen was much more systematic and marks up forward left the visitors trailing badly. The "footy Gods" were not smiling on Alexandra as an accurate kick bounced on the goal line and back into play for The River Pigs to clear. Sam Kidd, as he has done many times before, ran the length of the ground and kicked a much needed goal from a tight angle for his team. Some adventurous play through the centre saw Callum Tranter run forward and goal, Ben

ALEXANDRA FOOTBALL NETBALL CLUB REPORT Cooper playing well tackled strongly and his reward was a goal as Alex kept in touch. Yarra Glen's seventh and eighth goals for the quarter gave them a 23-point lead even after Luke Heard received from Ben Woollard and kicked accurately. Alex attacked early in the third quarter but struggled to get clean possessions and impact the scoreboard, the Glen kicked further away with the first goal but Alex was contesting hard and Purcell found Brayden Norris for a goal. The Alex defence thwarted a certain goal with a heavy bump in the goal square and again went forward where Steiner added only behinds. Cooper, strong in the air marked well and forwarded to Norris who goaled with a great long kick and reduced the margin to a more manageable 14 points. Yarra Glen stretched this out to 25 points at the last change as Alex could only manage a further behind. The home side kicked a long goal to make Alexandra's task near impossible as Alex continued to attack but could not finish. Rouget now marked well in defence and Will Goonan strong in defence enabled Alex to forward to Heard who was as accurate as usual. Alex continued their work rate and Brayden to Ryley was a Norris goal but two Yarra Glen goals within minutes virtually sealed the game as Alex kept on attacking and a clever handpass through a sea of players found Brayden Norris for his fourth goal. Alex kicked the last goal of the game courtesy of a Heveren tackle but had fallen 21 points short, 14.10 (94) to Yarra Glen 17.13 (115) The game was probably lost in one quarter, the second when the third placed team added eight goals to four but Alex displayed some committed football and virtually won the other three quarters against a very good side and was certainly not disgraced.
