Road rescue at Homewood

Ads soon for CEO job ■ It promises to be the longest farewell since Dame Nellie Melba. In May this year, Margaret Abbey indicated that she would “retire” from the position of Chief Executive Officer of Murrindindi Shire Council. Three months later, last week’s Council meeting was told that Councillors were still in discussions with an executive recruitment agency “on the position description and selection criteria “with the aim that the position will be advertised widely within the next few weeks”.

● About 20 emergency service personnel including CFA, ambulance and police rushed to a crash scene near ‘Doogallook’, Goulburn Valley Hwy, Homewood, west of Yea, on Thursday, to free a woman from a single vehicle accident scene.

● Margaret Abbey, CEO

“The permanent appointment of a new CEO will be from June 28, 2018,” last week’s meeting was informed. “However this person may also be appointed as an interim CEO from later this year.” Mayor Cr Charlie Bisset also gave a report to Council: “The CEO recruitment process has commenced with the appointment of the recruitment agency and the position will be advertised in the next few weeks.” Ms Abbey’s package as CEO is approximately $240,000 per year.

Radio licence ■ The Australian Communications and Media Authority is advertising for applications for a permanent community radio station in Seymour, prior to October 6. The licence is for the 103.9 FM frequency, broadcasting on 500 watts. Seymour FM has been broadcasting on a temporary licence, for close to the 10 past years.

Major Mitchell remembered ■ The Local Paper is currently serialising the 1969 history published by the Shire of Yea, printed by Jim Lowden of Kilmore. The work is being published unedited. One of the history’s references was to explorer Major Thomas Mitchell being in the “area’. Major Mitchell crossed the Goulburn River at Mitchellstown, near Nagambie, in 1836, some 12 years after Hume and Hovell had conducted their expedition. “Major Mitchell decided to curry favour with Lord Seymour and he named the town at the new crossing site after Lord Seymour,” writes historian Stephen Sheldermine. There is no evidence of Mitchell being in Yea. The 1969 publication is said to have had many errors of fact. Yea Shire commissioned a replacement publication soon after.

■ The passing of former Yea resident Ross Egan came unexpectedly at Childers (Qld) following a short illness. Ross, 64, will be remembered as an enthusiastic emergency services volunteer in Yea. A service was held on August 11 at Bundaberg. He was the son of Colin and Daisy Egan.

Private service ■ A private service was held at the Yea Cemetery on August 3 following the death of Thelma Skey. Condolences to Barbara, Margaret, Bill and Clare.

Wrong photo ■ The photo captioned as being the interior of Sacred Heart Church, in last week’s history feature, is not that of the Yea church. In good faith, The Local Paper printed the photo used by the Melbourne Archdiocese on the Sacred Heart web page. The same photo is used for a number of churches, including the ‘Immaculate Conception of Our Lady’ at Alexandra.

Editor’s Diary From Our Files - 30 Years Ago Tuesday, September 1, 1987

Secret report

■ Gravel at Kinglake was taken by a Yea Shire Councillor, according to a top secret report presented to Council. The report was prepared by former Acting Shire Secretary, Nick Zandbergs, following an investigative report by the Yea newspaper.

New CEO in chair

■ The man who took the Yea Shire’s $60,000-a-year CEO package, Peter Mangan, had his ‘certificate of qualification’ for only four years, we reported 30 years ago. Mr Mangan had started his career at the No-Sag Spring Company as a junior cost clerk, aged 17, later becoming a supervisor. He joined the Bellarine Council at age 25, was Assistant Shire Secretary at Kerang, then Shire Secretary at Avoca. Mr Mangan told Councillors that he could deliver ‘positive leadership, with an understanding of the ‘politics of people’.

Feral pigs amok

■ Feral pigs were causing extensive damage to land in Glenburn, Kinglake and the Tallarook Ranges, according to the Department of Conservation, Forests and Lands. Smaller infestations were at Mansfield and Kinglake West.

Feline death virus

■ Yea Shire’s proposal that the cat population be culled by the release of a feline death virus, could have several distinct problems said the Petcare Information and Advisory Service. The Service told the Council that it was unlikely that any Government would give permission for the deliberate release of the feline enteritus disease as promoted by Harry Butler.

Air ambulance

■ The Police air helicopter landed in the Station St reserve, opposite the Yea Hospital, to transport a local man to Melbourne. The helicopter landed near the Miller St corner, Ian Walker, to the Royal Melbourne Hospital.

Yea phones cut

■ A number of Yea businesses were left without telephone links when a major cable was cut by a Telecom emplyee working on the optic fibre project. Yea’s Westpac Bank had its lines cut, which meant that it lost computer facilities at its High St chambers. Newsagent John Handsaker was unable to serve Tattslotto customers.

Local People Tayla’s Track Titles

● Tayla Street, 17, of Junction Hill, on a Honda CR500, at the Australian Senior Dirt Track Championships at Mildura on August 19-20. Photo: Bill McFarlane ■ Tayla Street, 17, says she was “I was nervous and excited in equal measure, riding in her first Australian Dirt Track Titles at Mildura. Tayla tells the story: “The competition was held in four classes, the Pro Open Women’s Class, the Under 19’s Class, the MX Open 500 Class and the Pro 250 Class. “If that wasn’t challenging enough, most of my races were back-to-back, with virtually no-breaks between races. As my father said: ‘Take a big bite and chew like crazy’.” “For the riding fanatics, I was riding a Honda CR500 in the MX open 500 class, and in the Pro Open Woman class. I raced a Yamaha YZ 125 in the under 19’s class and the Pro 250 Class. “As you would expect in national titles the tempo goes up the nerves kick in more. However, my biggest challenge proved to be constantly changing bikes, literally getting off one bike and getting onto another for the next race. “They are very different bikes to ride. However, my training under the watchful eye of an excellent teacher who doubles as my father, I have had it drummed into me to be successful; you need to be work on endurance, physically and mentally and it must be consistent. “On the Saturday, I was still trying to adapt to the racing line and to the track surface and conditions. In every race I improved by seconds, thanks to Computime for providing timing for the race meeting. “In the MX Open 500 class and Pro Open Woman’s I was struggling to control the 500 in the exit of turn one and three with the stability of the front end and creating a loss of control in the front end of the bike. “After the race my mechanic, again my Dad, had adjusted the geometry of the front end and there was an immediate improvement which created and improvement in lap times and field positions in both the MX 500 and the Pro Open Women’s. “In the under 19’s and the Pro 250 classes the Yamaha, complete with new top end, was ‘flying’ and it gave nothing away against the four strokes. The races were tough and very close. It was aggressive racing, bumping and grinding in entries and exits in all corners. It was hard core and I was determined not to just make up the numbers against the men. “Sunday. I was refreshed. We started off with a parade lap and the Australian National Anthem. From there on it was action all day with all my races being back to back. As tough as Saturday was, Sunday was bigger - everyone was fighting for the gold. “The lap times from Saturday were up to six seconds slower than the race times I did on Sunday I was very happy to see the positive change, this lead to taking fourth overall in the Pro Open Woman’s class and taking seventh place overall in the Under 19’s. “In the MX Open 500 class, I had to come through the Repercharge to make the final. Unfortunately, I had a problem at the start which put winning well beyond reach but took the opportunity to use the valuable race time to prepare for the Pro Open Woman’s race. “Overall it was an amazing experience to undergo. I took out fourth place in the Pro Open Woman’s Class and seventh place overall in the Under 19’s class in the Australian National Championship. Next year I’ll be back - trying “Thanks to my sponsors to make this possible for me to represent them professionally and to make the opportunity for me to race, including my parents for the ongoing support and love,” Tayla said.

Picnic race clubs mentioned in Parlt. ■ The work of local race clubs was mentioned in State Parliament last week by Eildon MLA Cindy McLeish. Ms McLeish was debating the Racing Amendment (Modernisation) Bill. “When you look at the number of country clubs that are involved in picnic racing, you see that it is extremely important,” Ms McLeish told the Legislative Assembly. “I want to just mention briefly a number of the picnic clubs in my electorate. “I have got Alexandra, for example; they have three meetings a year. “They have very big day on Cox Plate Day to lead off the picnic season, and they have Chris Walsh there taking the reins as president. “Yea actually has two clubs; we have Yea Racing Club with Denis Smith as president and we have St Pat’s Racing Club with Richard Forde as president. “Yea Racing Club has three events — they have a big Christmas event — and St Pat’s has one event. “The people of the St Pat’s club have a big day out on the balcony up there and have a wonderful lunch. “It is a really great atmosphere with wonderful shade at Yea. “There is equally wonderful shade at Healesville. They have six meetings a year from November, starting with the Derby Day event, through to April. “They do not have the Golden Slipper, but they do have the Golden Thong, and that is a fairly big event. “David Purcell, formerly of Yea, is the president of the Healesville racing club. “Mansfield only have a couple of events, but they do a lot of other work outside racing to raise money and to generate interest and activity around that club. “They have a Melbourne Cup Day event and Mansfield Cup Day. “Merton have their big single meet of the year, the New Year’s Day meeting.

“When Yarra Valley was not able to race it had such an impact on the town, with people’s casual jobs not being available and with the loss of all of the food and beverage sponsorship, and also the purchases were not there. “It is great now that things have settled down a bit and they are back on the right path with David Long at the helm there and a great committee. “I have been to many events there, so I congratulate Yarra Valley Racing on what they have done. “But I also wish Racing Victoria the best as they adopt these changes and move forward, particularly with the retirement of the great racing advocate, Bernard Saundry, who you would see at picnic events as well as regional events and certainly at the city events. “His role has been taken over now by the new CEO, Giles Thompson.”

Local Politics Rat run speeding ■ Yan Yean MLA Danielle Green says high speeds are being used by motorists on back roads in her electorate. Ms Green last week directed a question to Roads and Roads Safety Minister Luke Donnellan in the Legislative Assembly: “I ask: what is the process that responsible road management authorities, including local government, ought to use to review speed limits on local roads? “Due to population growth, there are many local roads in rural areas of the Yan Yean electorate which are now being used as rat runs. “These roads are windy, closely treed and home to much wildlife, including kangaroos, and are carrying much higher traffic flows than they were designed to. “Constituents in my communities are questioning the default 100-kmh speed limit on some rural roads, and also some 80-kmh speed limits, so would appreciate them being reviewed,” Ms Green said.

Interest in racing ■ Yan Yean MLADanielle Green told State Parliament that there was a big following in horse racing in the outer-northern sububs of Melbourne. “In my own electorate there is a great interest in racing. We also punch above our weight because we have Melbourne Polytechnic campuses at Yan Yean and Epping that do more training in the horse industry than anywhere else,” Ms Green said. “Whether it is training farriers — it is everything you could think of — from one end of the racing industry to the other they do it at Melbourne Polytechnic. “The great Roy Higgins in fact taught at the Northern Lodge campus of what was then NMIT and is now Melbourne Polytechnic,” Ms Green said.

Van parks meet ■ Eildon Fire Brigade members, CFACommunity Education members and Murrindindi Shire members met last week with local owners and mangers from caravan parks around the Murrindindi Shire. They gathered at the Eildon Fire Station to discuss actions taken and discuss learnings from the recent caravan fire at the Eildon Pondage Holiday Park. Representatives of Eildon Pondage Holiday Park, Boulevard Caravan Park, Bluegums Riverside Holiday Park, Jerusalem Creek Marina and Holiday Park, Thornton Caravan Park, Eildon Waters Holiday Park, BreakawayTwin Rivers Caravan Park and Yea Riverside Caravan Park were all in attendance. “The discussion was around initial response (000 Call), the number of appliances en-route, the initial fire attack (reactions/pressures), Park Manager’s role in ensuring boom gates were open and people accounted for,” said a social media report. “At a time like this, minutes feels like hours and social media had already publicised the fire, with phone calls flooding into the Park Managers, making it difficult to manage the situation. “The community spirit was quick to jump on board and assist the Park by manning the boom gate and taking phone calls. “Having a good emergency management plan ensured procedures were followed and reduced the stress and pressure, as best it could. “The Fire Brigades had good access to the fire, but if this was during the peak season, it could have been a lot different due to the amount of cars, boats, trailers and jetskis parked along the streets, blocking access for the fire trucks to gain access. “The evening was a very worthwhile opportunity for Park Owners/Managers to ask lots of questions in relation to regulations from the panel of CFA and Murrindindi Shire members that were in attendance. They also had the opportunity to network and gain knowledge from each other.”

Support for first responders ■ Yan Yean MLA Danielle Green has spoken in State Parliament about the need to support emergency volunteers who are ‘first responders’. “I am pleased to join the debate on the Justice Legislation Amendment (Body-worn Cameras and Other Matters) Bill 2017,” Ms Green told the Legislative Assembly last week. “In my electorate of Yan Yean there are a very large number of first responders who actually reside in my electorate, as well as work — police, paramedics, firefighters and the Victoria State Emergency Service — and just like every family that has someone in paid work, they expect that their loved ones will come home safely from work. “These cameras will actually go a long way to protecting our first responders from violent offenders, and sadly it

is not just police that are the subject of violence in their workplace; it is many others. “They will also assist in evidence gathering. “Gone will be the days when police have to spend hours transcribing paper notebooks for evidence. “I know that it will be very helpful for coronial inquiries sadly when they are needed. “For things like the Black Saturday royal commission I was involved in searching house to house the day after Black Saturday for the remains of people. “I was never trained to do that. The other volunteers on the strike team I was with had never been trained to do that. “We never thought we would do anything in our lives like that. “Many of us found it incredibly difficult trying to recall the details and even to know ex-

actly where we were; the landscape had changed so much during that terrible situation. “I think that this would be of great assistance, and it is just part of a suite of things. “We are not only determined to improve responses to crime and the causes of crime, but we want to make it easier for first responders to do their jobs and we want communities to feel safer. “It will protect our first responders from vexatious claims of injury. “I know that the member for Eildon mentioned just before that there have been cases where those who are ice-affected have truly believed that they have been assaulted by police when in fact it was their drug-induced psychosis and they have caused their own injuries. “So I think that this will be a protection for police and offenders alike.,” Ms Green said.

■ “There is rarely a meeting of Council without at least one complex planning item on the agenda,” Cr Margaret Rae said. “At times the discussion to observers may appear to be relatively brief but it is important to recognise and acknowledge the work that goes on in preparation for the meetings through detailed briefings, meetings with applicants and objectors and site visits when appropriate and possible plus much reading and questioning by Councillors. “The Planning Scheme is detailed, complex and prescriptive and we have to work within its constraints whilst endeavouring to make the best decisions on behalf of our community. “This complexity is now well recognised at the State level, which is responsible for most of the Scheme – and there is now a great deal of work going on to try to address this and to make planning more accessible to the professionals and to community. “I recently attended the Municipal Association of Victoria Planning Committee, where key items (were discussed),” Cr Rae told last week’s Council meeting.

Money raised this year will go to the Yea Ambulance Service who are hoping to obtain a ‘Call Car’ to complement their two ambulance vans.

Fire reforms ‘no’

■ Western District MP James Purcell announced late last week that he will vote against the current Country Fire Authority reforms. Mr Purcell met with Government in a last-minute attempt to negotiate conditions on the bill that would support volunteers. "The Government was not willing to meet those conditions and I will not be supporting the bill in its current form," Mr Purcell said. Mr Purcell says that he has held extensive consultations with both paid and volunteer fire services in south-west Victoria to gauge their support for the legislation and understand where their concerns lie. "This issue is too important to be pushed through without unanimous support. It's up to the Government now to go back to the drawing board and create a better plan," Mr Purcell said. ● Flashback to last year’s Oaks Day celebrations at Yea.

At Hurstbidge ■ In recognition of the services given by Cr Hewitt to the ratepayers over a period of 18 years, an advertisement calls a meeting of North Riding ratepayers at the Hurstbridge Hall on Tuesday evening, September 10 at 8pm for the purpose of making arrangements. Tha Advertiser has received 10/- from a Panton Hill resident towards the fund. This will be handed to the secretary appointed by the meeting.

Alex. Branch CWA ■ The monthly meeting of the above was held on Friday afternoon last, when about 50 members enjoyed the three charades that had been prepared by members under the leadership ot Mrs. Greenwood. All proved most amusing, especially the bun eating competition. As charades were rather new to some members, they found difficulty in finding the three words were guessed correctly by Mrs. Fitzroy, who was presented with a trophy.

Humevale passing ■ Believed to have been one of the oldest members of the A.I.F., Mr. John Edward Burgess, aged 84 years, died at the home of his niece, Mrs. Jolley, of Humevale, early this week. Mr. Burgess joined the 1st Remounts as a corporal on the recommendation of Lieut. General Chauvel, who had known Mr. Burgess as being a wonderful man with horses. Mr. Burgess gave his age on his attestation papers at 48 although he was then 62, but his appearance at that time was that of a much younger man. His period of service was 883 days, 767 days having been served abroad. In his youth Mr. Burgess was a driver of coaches for Cobb & Co. in New South Wales and was driving on the Jerilderie run at the time of the activities of the Kelly Gang. He was buried in the Preston Cemetery.

Liquor stolen ■ Two men, who are alleged to have entered the Royal Mail Hotel, Diamond Creek, in the early hours of Saturday, and stolen a quantity of liquor, crashed into the concrete bridge at Greensborough on the way back to Melbourne. The crash was heard by Mrs. S. McGeorge. of theGreensborough Park kiosk at 5am on Saturday. She woke Mr. McGeorge, who went with his son to investigate, and found two bccupants of the car injured. Mr. McGeorge rang for Dr. Cordner, First. Constable Guider, and the Civil Ambulance.

Near disaster ■ There was nearly a disaser at the annual ball of the Hurstbridge Cricket club on Saturday night During the evening, it was noticed that the acetylene light was failing, and Messrs D. O. Graham and A. J. Verso went forth to investigate. There was a strong smell of escaping gas. A number of persons were standing outside awaiting the result of the poll, and Mr. Graham warned them not to light any matches. He went inside, and a few minutes later the safety valve blew out.

Molesworth Bridge work was vital Yea Road Board History Continued from last week ■ Pressing the Tallarook Road through seemed to be given highest priority on the works program as a further letter to the Seymour Shire requesting them “to clear gates and fences off their portion of the Tallarook Road”. With estimates increased to £1801 and a decision against Broadford for cession of part of their District to Yea, paused the Board to confidently suggest that the Tallarook Road be “proclaimed a Main Road”. A later unsuccessful attempt by Broadford to annex portion of the Yea District was unsuccessful as the Minute Book states that the “petition contains certain names of persons who are not ratepayers in the Roads Board District ofYea”. Three Board members were presnet at the 1871-72 Annual Meeting and the Chairman was elected with a two-one majority. However, in the early days, distances to travel and particularly the elements played a major part in the number attending meetings. The new Boad regarded recent legislation passed to proclaim ridings in the district as “unnecessary”. The Board later claimed that a petition, lodged in favour ridings being proclaimed, was false and deemed it “the duty of the Board to cause a searching inquiry to be made into the matter and that proceedings be forthwith taken in the Police Court against the person making such false declaration”. Subsequently, the Board was divided into two ridingts on May 31, 1873. The ridings were north and south with the main road as a division. On May 25, 1893, the Shire was redefined into four ridings: Central, North, West and South. However, ridings were later abolished on May 27, 1930. ★ With the Yea Board section of Tallarook Road in reasonable repair, the Board was anxious to have the Seymour section completed, but a Government bote of £500 was thought totally insufficient for the purpose. A deputation consisting of Messrs Cairns, Grant and Taylor was appointed to wait on the Minister, with a view to having the amount increased. The deputation was also instructed to wait upon the Minister for Lands, with a suggestion to have a Land Officer appointed at Yea, and also a Telegraph Office established at Tallarook, the residents having to travel to Seymour, about 25 miles for both these services. On the works program for the year 1873, the Board was pressing the Commissioners for a guarantee of half the cost for the construction of a bridge at Molesworth; and the possibility of placing Alexandra in a legal position to “place a bridge across the Goulburn at Molesworth some time in the future”. A deviation, the first one of several to be made, was being surveyed through Ker’s Killingworth at the “damnable” Cottons Pinch. A vote for the annexation of the Whanregarwen District brought a vote of complete unanimity from the Yea Board. But a motion that the “Board will use every endeavour to erect a bridge

from the money expended through the formative years. It is with little doubt that the Council accepted his resignation with deep regret, and had little hesitation in instructing the temporary clerk, Mr Samuel A. Wall, “to draw and engross a testimonial expressive of the high respect the Council entertains for Mr L. Downey while fulfilling the duties of Secretary and Engineer”. So ends what would have been the most formative era of the Shire. ● Continued next page

● From the Alexandra and Yea Standard, September 1, 1877. The Police Court report shows bitter proceedings between J.W. Cairns and J.D. Webster, two of the early pioneers of the Yea distict. One action was over the alleged trespass of bulls, followed by allegations of ‘wilful and corrupt perjury’.

Local History Continued from previous page ■ Samuel Wall was appointed to the position of Secretary and Treasurer at £70 p.a. on February 6, 1875. His first job was to formally go about the issue of debentures for the £2000 required. Like many country towns where goats roamed, they became a menace, so the poundkeeper was ordered to “destroy all goats without yokes on and after the 30th inst.” The year 1875 was a most uneventful Council year except for the occasional minute when the Secretary would be asked to inspect a crossing, road or bridge. In May of 1876 it was decided to build a Shire Hall “at a cost not to exceed £200”. In June Mr Wall was asked to resign his position and that applications be called for Secretary and Clerk of Works, in the meantime the President was to act in his capacity. In December, ratepayers were asked to vote on a site for a Shire Hall and the decision for allotments 7 and 8 of the township, which belonged to a Mr Wishart. These blocks were to be purchased for £25. Early in 1877 tenders had been called for the erection of a Shire Hall, and the successful tenderers were Messrs. Jarvie and Clarke. Mr John Drysdale having resigned as Clerk of Works, Mr Drew was appointed to supervise the building of the Hall for a fee of £20. Later in the year, a public meeting was called to start a petition in favour of a railway line from Yea to Tallarook. Evidently, a Municipal Directory stated that “only a little theoretical and practical mining knowledge, the diamond drill and a trifling expenditure were required, to make Yea one of the most important mining districts in Victoria”. As a result an approach was made to the Member, Thomas Hunt, MLA, in an effort to “get a share for this district of the grant set aside for prospecting”. He was also asked to accompany a deputation to the Postmaster-General in an effort to have a Telegraphic Office established.

The Government was also asked to assist Council in furnishing a water supply for the use of this town as it is believed that there is an abundant supply for all purposes under the main street. With a government grant of £200 available, if the Council would amend £400, the “survey of Cotton’s Pinch take precedence of all other works except work that is absolutely necessary for traffic”. To the Council the news from T. Hunt MLA, that the Yea line shall be the next one taken in to hand”. A letter to Seymour complained of the “almost impossible state of the Tallarook to Yea Road between the Punt and the Boundary of this Shire” was hopped that it would have the desired effect. A plan which was drawn up by the Council for the Cemetery Trust is a most interesting document, indicating that previous interments had been in a haphazard fashion and irregular line. The Council showed no qualmsin allowing the Railways “making use of any of the roads in the Shire for railway purposes providing there is provision made for traffic”. On hearing that the Acclimatisation Society mad avilable trout fry the Council requested “a few hundred salmon trout for the purpose of placing them in the Yea River and its tributaries. On receibing the fish the Secretary was instructed to write to Mr A. Le Souef and thank him “for the very great trouble he took upon a public holiday and very important race meeting in recatching the trout fry after the first train was missed”. A claim by the Broadford Shire Council for £12/15/- “being half the amount expended by the Broadford Roads Board in 1872 over the King Parrot Creek between the Shires of Yea and Broadford”. A terse reply from the following minute no doubt subdued them. “Call their attention to the amount they are in due to this Council viz. quarter cost of the King Parrot Creek Bridge and the sideling cutting leading from there to the end of our boundary upon which we hace extended a large amount of money and we propose taking proceedings to recover same”. On this note it was decided that “steps be taken forthwith to complete the Shire Hall and if possible in accordance with the original plan”. The Council’s efforts so far in obtaining a medical man for the district had been in vain and a further petition from the ratepayers urging the Council to offer £150 as an incentive. The Council however came one better and offered £200, as an incentive. A successful raid on the sly grog establishments throughout the district was followed up by an auction of the liquor and utensils seized. Half the fines and half the proceeds of the sale had to be forwarded to the Minister for Excise. It is rather apt that at the time the Band of Hope and Temperance Society applies for a block of land to erect a meeting place on. The installation of a rain gauge in the district by the Bureau of Meteorology was left in the hands of the Head Teacher at the State School who upon being transferred from the district stated “that under no circumstances can I now take charge of this instrument”.

Top author to speak ‘at’ Yea

● National Geographic journalist and author Carl Hoffman ■ National Geographic journalist and author Carl Hoffman loves connecting with his readers about his work and his life. In particular, he enjoys speaking with smaller communities like those in Murrindindi Shire. Carl is the special guest at Yea Library's Tuesday Talks on September 12 from 7pm, chatting live via Skype about his fascinating life and also about his latest book Savage Harvest: A Tale of Cannibals, Colonialism and Michael Rockefeller's Tragic Quest for Primitive Art. Savage Harvest debuted on the New York Times bestseller list and was a New York Times ‘Editor's Pick’. Amazon named it the best non-fiction book of 2014 and the Washington Post named it one of its 50 "notable" non-fiction books of the year. "I'm really looking forward to talking with everyone about reporting and writing Savage Harvest - my story of Michael Rockefeller's disappearance, but also the particular challenges I had with digging into and unraveling the story. “With slides and video I'm going to take you on the journey with me in reporting this story that's almost too crazy to be true, but is," Carl said. "As a writer, my greatest joy is simply to have readers read and engage with my books and the stories that I've spent so much time and effort to tell. ● Carl Hoffman in his office “I love the fact I can skip across oceans

and engage directly with people in a place where we might never have the chance to physically meet and interact. "Every country, every community, feels important to me as almost all of my writing is about remote places, people and cultures, so it's especially exciting to have the opportunity to interact directly with people from places that are more off the beaten path, even if they're anything but jungles or swamps inhabited by former head hunters." Carl said he enjoyed speaking with Australians about New Guinea because of our proximity to the country and our shared history with it. At the Tuesday Talk, Carl will also discuss his next book set for release next March in USA called The Last Wild Men of Borneo: A True Tale of Death and Treasure. "It's sort of a sequel to Savage Harvest and it's a wild adventure story about two Western men's escape from their own culture and deep dive into Borneo and its indigenous people," he said. Murrindindi Shire Council Community Services Portfolio Councillor Sandice McAulay said Yea Library is carving out a strong reputation for attracting acclaimed authors to speak to the community. "Just because we're not in the heart of a city doesn't mean we can't have access to these amazing and inspirational people," Cr McAulay said. ● Turn To Magazine 8 (Page 40)

Stateside with Gavin Wood in West Hollywood

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

Facebook, Apple face off ■ Apple has more than $1 billion budgeted for original programming, Facebook wants its own version of Scandal and Google is ready to spend up to $3 million per episode on a drama. The three digital giants have signalled to Hollywood that they are serious about entering a television landscape that Netflix and Amazon shook up just a few years ago. Their arrival will make an already hyper-competitive industry even more ferocious. This year, there are expected to be more than 500 scripted TV shows, more than double the number six years ago. Although there have been some signs that the industry's output may plateau cable companies like A&E and WGN have said they are getting out of the scripted television business. The entry of Apple, Facebook and Google into the fray almost guarantees that the volume of shows will continue to grow, even as viewers grapple with a glut of programming and an expanding number of streaming platforms.

Nobu, toast of hungry city ■ Nobuyuki Matsuhisa is known to the world simply as ‘Nobu”: he is the acclaimed and highly influential chef proprietor of Nobu and Matsuhisa restaurants located across five continents. Nobu is at Crown Casino, Melbourne. Born and raised in Saitama, Japan, Nobu served a rigorous apprenticeship at a respected sushi bar in Tokyo. It was not long before his dreams of seeing the world moved him to open a sushi bar in Peru. A classically trained sushi-chef, Nobu was challenged by the new culture and regional ingredients, which kindled his inventive style, known today as Nobu Style. After three years in Peru, Nobu moved to Argentina, then home to Japan, then on to Alaska, before finally settling in Los Angeles. Nobu opened his first restaurant in the United States, Matsuhisa in Beverly Hills, California, in January 1987. Matsuhisa was an instant success and became a magnet for food lovers and celebrities alike. It was here that his long time friendship and business relationship with actor and director Robert De Niro began. It was at De Niro's urging that together they opened the very first Nobu in New York City in 1994. Like Matsuhisa, Nobu was an instant hit. Nobu now is spearheading the Los Angeles ‘Taste Of All Flavours’ starting with a huge foodie-tasting event at Paramount Pictures Studios on Melrose Avenue over the next week. You get the chance to experience over 110 best restaurants in Los Angeles.

● Pictured at the opening promotional event is Chef Nobu with the Managing Director of the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Suites, Alan Johnson, a major sponsor of the event.

Major lotto winner ■ The winning ticket for the second-largest lottery prize in US. history, $758.7 million, was purchased in Massachusetts ahead of Wednesday night's drawing, Powerball officials said. Massachusetts Lottery spokesman Christian Teja said the ticket was purchased at the Pride Station and Store in Chicopee. The winning numbers were 6, 7, 16, 23, and 26, and the Powerball number was 4. The biggest Powerball prize was claimed in 2016, when three ticket holders won a jackpot of $1.6 billion. Last week's drawing reportedly marks the largest prize ever to go to a single winner. Mavis Wanczyk, who worked at the Mercy Medical Centre, will lose 40 per cent Federal tax and 5 per cent State tax and will take home a clear $336 million. In Australia you get it all.

Stateside Starwatch ■ Jerry Seinfeld took in the eclipse from the Ram's Head Inn on Shelter Island, where he and a friend lounged in Adirondack chairs, drinking coffee after arriving together in a '68 Porsche. ■ Coldplay rocker Chris Martin with a mystery woman at ‘Top Chef’ star Katsuji Tanabe's Barrio restaurant in Chicago. ■ Bill Maher and Ariana Huffington joined Michael Moore onstage as surprise guests at his Belasco Theatre show in New York City. ■ Selena Gomez was moderating a Q&A for Robert Pattinson's latest film, Good Time, at Los Angeles' Arclight Cinema Dome. Spies were buzzing that Uma Thurman is back with hotelier ■ André Balazs after the on-again/off-again pair was spotted spending time together last weekend on Shelter Island. Thurman was also seen taking a class at Shelter Island Pilates and Barre. ■ A spy at a Target store in Los Angeles says Angelina Jolie took her daughters Shiloh and Vivienne to the cafe inside but the family was disheartened to find the location did not serve hot dogs. "The kids were disappointed, so they all left," said our man in aisle five. "One weird thing is that Angie was totally bundled up in a big sweater, and it was probably 85 or 90 degrees out."

■ Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson won over theatregoers this month in The Hitman's Bodyguard, taking the top spot at the box office with $21.6 million in ticket sales. The comedy, which was independently produced for about $30 million, follows a dogged bodyguard and the assassin he's protecting, as they stumble from one adventure to another before winding up at The Hague. Despite getting strong reviews, Steven Soderbergh's Logan Lucky, a heist comedy starring Channing Tatum and Adam Driver, brought in a mere $8.1 million in ticket sales, leaving it in third place. The horror flick Annabelle: Creation took second place with about $15.5 million.

● Judge Judy

www.gavinwood.us

■ Robert Plant has unveiled details for his forthcoming LP, Carry Fire. It's his 11th studio album and first full-length release following 2014's Lullaby and the Ceaseless Roar. Produced by Plant, the 11-song LP features accompaniment from his Lullaby backers the Sensational Space Shifters, which includes John Baggott, Justin Adams, Dave Smith and Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson. Albanian cellist Redi Hasa and violist/violinist Seth Lakeman (who recently joined the group) also perform on three tracks. Chrissie Hyndemakes a special appearance in a duet with Plant for Ersel Hickey's Bluebirds Over the Mountain.

Judge Judy buys well ■ The courtroom is real, the people are real and so are Judge Judy's properties. It was revealed that the TV judge made an eye-watering $59.5 million-a-year; thanks to a legal dispute between US network CBS and Rebel Entertainment, the company that originally packaged Judge Judy in the early days. It was also revealed she's a shrewd negotiator. By the looks of Judge Judy Sheindlin's property portfolio she's not shy when it comes to investing her whopping salary. When you're one of the highest paid jet-owning people on TV, naturally you own an amazing penthouse overlooking the ocean in Naples, Italy, worth $13 million. Because one holiday home in Italy isn't enough for a TV judge who only works five days per month and earns over $1 million per day, Sheindlin has family-friendly Naples mansion worth $10.8 million. When Judge Judy is over sipping a chilled pinot from her balcony in Naples, she can call on her multi-million dollar pad in New York City. The $10.7 million, four-bedroom duplex is located in the Upper East Side's Sutton Place neighbourhood in New York. Sheindlin's primary home is a $16.7 million, nine-bedroom manor in Greenwich, Connecticut, which she shares with her husband. Built in 1921, it was designed by renowned 20th century architect Harrie T. Lindeberg. The stunning home sits on 12.5 acres of woodland. When Judge Judy is filming in Los Angeles she has a five-bedroom apartment at the swish Montage Beverly Hills Hotel worth $12 million she can crash at, in case she doesn't feel like jumping in her private jet to head back home to Greenwich.

Movies, DVDs with Jim Sherlock, Aaron Rourke What’s Hot and What’s Not in Blu-Rays and DVDs FILM: THEIR FINEST: Genre: Comedy/Drama/Romance. Cast: Gemma Arterton, Billy Nighy, Sam Claflin, Richard E. Grant, Jack Huston. Details: 2016. Rating: M. Lemgth: 117 Minutes. Stars: ***½ Verdict: During the London Blitz of World War II, a young woman is recruited by the British Ministry of Information to write scripts for propaganda films and subsequently investigates the story of two young women who supposedly piloted a boat in the Dunkirk Evacuation. However, even though it proved a complete misapprehension, the story becomes the basis for a fictional film with some possible mass appeal, and along with her new colleagues, they struggle against interference in their artistic decisions in the hope to contribute something meaningful in this time of war and in their own lives. Delightfully engaging WWII period piece shines due to a stellar ensemble cast all in top form, most notably the scene stealing Bill Nighy as the matinee idol past his prime, and Gemma Arterton as the film's beating heart and champion for women during the war effort as the young woman who is recruited by the British Ministry of Information. Smart, intelligent, sad, respectful, funny, poignant and tragic, the pacing, direction, cinematography, period detail, costume and production design all excel to make this "movie-with-in a movie" comedy-drama is a hugely entertaining experience driven by a big beating heart. FILM: ALIEN COVENANT: Genre: Sci-Fi/Thriller. Cast: Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup. James Franco, Guy Pearce, Noomi Rapace. Year: 2017. Rating: MA15+ Length: 123 Minutes. Stars: ** Verdict: The crew of the colony ship Covenant carrying 2000 human passengers and 1140 embryos is bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy for humanity to settle, but following an accident and before reaching their destination, they discover an unknown planet and ultimately what they think is an uncharted paradise ... but in a fateful decision to land there, they soon uncover a threat beyond their imagination. Director Ridley Scott returns to the Alien creature-feature saga for the third time with this horror-thriller follow up to the polarizing 'Prometheus' (2012), the second instalment in the 'Alien' prequel series leading up to the events of his original 1979 classic 'Alien.' Set 10 years after 'Prometheus' and 18 years prior to 'Alien,' this is a nicely looking addition to the franchise, however, this is an all too sombre effort with little originality or freshness to get overly excited about as it mostly delivers an ambiguous 'best of' or 'rehash' of what has come before it. Introduced in 2012s 'Prometheus,' Michael Fassbender gives a passable performance as the android David, inspired by David Bowie's performance as the alien in Nicolas Roeg's 1976 sci-fi odyssey 'The Man Who Fell To Earth,' and the remaining cast, including Katherine Waterston as the damsel-indistress and Billy Crudup as the newly appointed Captain, deliver barely effective, and like the action, all too repetitious performances. A lot of questions remain unanswered, but in the meantime there's plenty of seen it all too many times before 'back-to-basics' slicing and dicing to shrill and shriek about ... until the next one, if not two, adventures finally connect all the dots. FILM: A DOG'S PURPOSE: Genre: Adventure/Comedy/Drama. Cast: Josh Gad, Dennis Quaid, Peggy Lipton. Year: 2017. Rating: M. Length: 100 Minutes. Stars: *** Verdict: Heart-warming and soul searching tale of a dog who looks to discover his purpose in life over the course of several lifetimes with varied owners, good and bad. From director Lasse Hallstrom, whose previous work includes the superior Hachi: A Dogs Tale (2009), tells the reincarnated journey's of Bailey / Buddy / Tino and Ellie with constant cliché, but with delicate, effective and enjoyable results, no matter how corny or implausible it may feel at times. Hard to fault the movie's honest intentions, and even though joined by moments of tear inducing melancholia, what could have easily been a completely grim emotional experience, is in turn a light, heartfelt, funny and poignant above average entertaining 'meaning of life' pooch tale. - James Sherlock

Rourke’s Reviews ■ The Dinner (M). 121 minutes. Opens in selected cinemas on September 7. Challenging in its structure, with an individualistic execution that may prove difficult for some to endure, The Dinner is a film that will divide and dismay. But for those who love to sink their teeth into a movie that doesn't want to play to formula, then this should be rewarding viewing. Steve Coogan plays Paul Lohman, a highly strung former history teacher who is agitated about requiring to have dinner with his older brother Stan (Richard Gere). Initially telling his wife Claire (Laura Linney) that he doesn't want to attend, Paul does eventually give in, and the two make their way to the fancy, highly-exclusive restaurant that his brother, a popular politician who is awaiting election results, was able to get them into. After making the maitre d' (Michael Chernus) suffer as much as possible, the couple are joined by Stan and his younger wife Katelyn (Rebecca Hall), as well as assistant Nina (Adepero Oduye), who distractingly keeps Stan upto-date on the electoral numbers. The quartet have gathered together to discuss a disturbing incident involving Paul's son Michael (Charlie Plummer) and Stan's son Rick (Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick), which if exposed, would ruin not only the teenagers' lives, but also Stan's political career. As the night goes on, civilities begin to disappear, and through numerous flashbacks involving the adults and their children, we see just how fractured and poisoned these families are. After making a strong impression with his brilliant 2009 war drama The Messenger, starring Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster (and openly inspired by Michael Cimino's The Deer Hunter), director Oren Moverman has found it hard to win movie-goers over since. This isn't due to a lack of passion or quality, but more to the fact that Moverman wants to walk to his own beat, confidently experimenting with style and narrative influenced by numerous eras and film-makers. His 2011 police thriller Rampart (also starring Harrelson) was widely savaged, and his poignant homeless drama Time Out Of Mind (2014) received absolutely no publicity, subsequently disappearing without a trace. His screenplay (based on the acclaimed novel by Herman Koch) relies heavily on character interplay and the dark revelations that arise from it, and thankfully he has a cast who perfectly deliver the sharp, often searing dialogue. Coogan, best known as a comedian in shows such as I'm Alan Partridge and Saxondale, has taken on more dramatic roles in recent years, and this is by far his best performance to date. Linney (Mystic River, You Can Count On Me, Sully) is her usual reliable self, and Hall (who should have been nominated for an Oscar this year for her work in the hugely under-rated Christine) excels as Stan's second wife who is still living in the shadow of his first. Gere, who has been quite prolific of late, again shows what a terrific actor he is, and his willingness to em-

body various, mainly flawed characters has been a joy to watch. Superbly shot by Bobby Bukowski (who has photographed all of Moverman's films, as well as Dogfight and The Minus Man), whose darkly framed images recall the work of the late, great Gordon Willis (The Godfather trilogy, All The President's Men), The Dinner will most likely be compared to Roman Polanski's briskly funny Carnage, but this weightier effort demands complete audience involvement (with an ending that will infuriate many), something they are rarely required to do nowadays. RATING - **** The Lovers (MA). 97 minutes. Opens in selected cinemas on September 7. Wonderfully low-key, beautifully acted drama that focuses on a seemingly dead marriage that suddenly sparks back to life in a most unexpected manner. The veteran couple are Mary (Debra Winger) and Michael (Tracy Letts), who go through the motions at home, both agonisingly aware that their marriage is completely devoid of passion and love. So much so that they are each involved in extra-marital affairs; Michael with ballet teacher Lucy (Melora Walters), and Mary with aspiring writer Robert (Aiden Gillen). Knowing the end is nigh, the two decide to announce their break-up when their college student son Joel (Tyler Ross) arrives home for a few days with his girlfriend Erin (Jessica Sula), who has yet to meet his parents. Believing this to be the best option before parting ways and walking off into the sunset with their secret partners, Michael and Mary's plans are turned upside down when they suddenly rediscover that long-lost flame, making them wonder if splitting up is really the right thing to do. The Lovers should be thoroughly enjoyed by adult audiences, able to see two mature people contemplating what the other means to them, the time they have spent together, and the inevitability of what may happen when a couple have been in each other's company for so long. Imagine the next step after Forget Paris (which also co-starred Winger), which itself was the next step after the initial, glowing romance had worn off. With so many romantic films now either crudely outrageous or depressingly formulaic and shallow, it is great to see a film that treats the subject in a believable, matter-of-fact fashion. Both Winger and Letts are outstanding. Winger, who disappeared from the limelight for many years after a falling out with Hollywood, is exceptional, and it is so refreshing to see an actress who has let herself age gracefully (especially after seeing Goldie Hawn's plastic features in Snatched). Letts, better known as a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer (Bug, Killer Joe, August : Osage County, Superior Donuts), is a perfect match, and continues the excellent work he displayed in Indignation and Christine. Writer/director Azazel Jacobs (Terri, Momma's Man) deserves special praise for never allowing the material to become saccharine or melodramatic, always wanting these people to remain believable and recognisable. Catch The Lovers while you can, before it disappears from cinemas, you won't be disappointed. RATING - ****

News Round-Up Black ice ■ A single vehicle motor accident on Melba Hwy, north of Devlin’s Bridge, on Monday morning (Aug. 28) was blamed on black ice. The driver was lucky to escape his overturned vehicle. Local emergency volunteers attended the smash which occurred about 7am.

Sports grants ■ Euroa MLA Steph Ryan is urging local sports clubs to apply for a share in up to $400,000 worth of State Government funding under the VicHealthActive Club grant scheme. Ms Ryan said the grants of up to $10,000 were available to clubs looking to increase female participation or offer a modified sports program to appeal to a wider audience. “Getting involved with a sports club has great social and health benefits for men and women,” Ms Ryan said. “These grants are designed to help our local clubs keep membership costs low and encourage everyone to get involved. “Sporting clubs are crucial to maintaining community well-being and it’s important that we find ways to keep participation numbers high.” Applications close 4pm, Friday, September 22. For more information or to lodge an application visit www.vichealth.vic.gov.au/ activeclub

Record funding

■ Local MLA Cindy McLeish says that a Liberal Nationals State Government will provide an additional $140 million to deliver world class community palliative care in Victoria. This will be the largest investment of its kind in Australia. "A Liberal Nationals Government will ensure Victorians who are dying have a genuine choice to spend their final days at home and will also support their families and carers throughout this time," Ms McLeish said. In 2015-16, funding for community palliative care provided support for 16,777 Victorians. This increase in funding announced by the Liberal Nationals will help provide palliative care support for up to another 8000 Victorians. Research indicates that around 70 per cent of Victorians want to live their final days at home surrounded by family, friends and memories. Research also shows that barely a third of Victorians get to realise this final wish due to inadequate funding for community based palliative care services. "With an ageing population and increasing rates of complex chronic illness, demand for palliative care will continue to grow. “Only a Liberal Nationals Government will make the necessary investment to deliver timely and comprehensive community palliative care for those who want it," Ms McLeish said. This commitment will see: ■ A doubling of specialist palliative care medical and nursing services to community palliative care clients, especially in rural and regional Victoria. ■ A 50 per cent funding increase in community palliative care provided in the home and including overnight care, in home respite and carer support and enhanced linkages to after-hours support such as GPs and pharmacists. ■ Significant education and workforce development to recruit and train skilled palliative care workers to deliver expanded services, enhance health professionals capacity to have end-of-life conversations and support volunteers. ■ A community awareness and engagement campaign to assist Victorians to understand the availability and benefits of palliative care including underrepresented groups such as rural and regional Victorians, children, non-cancer related illnesses, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and indigenous Victorians.

Expo countdown ■ As the time for the Yea Rotary Garden Expo draws nearer, preparations are going on in many quarters to make sure the event is an even greater success than last year's expo. Ian Sichlau, from the planning committee has drawn up a site map; he and Les Hall are allocating sites to the 60 or so vendors and exhibitors. They are trying to make sure that access is easy so that the many and varied items on offer can be more attractively displayed. There are 12 suppliers of food taking part in the Expo, and these will be spaced around the lawns of the Golf Club so that people can take advantage of the seats and shady trees while enjoying their coffee or snack. Rotary members will be hosting a gourmet barbeque and the Wetlands Committee will again cater inside the Golf Club rooms. Plant companies taking part in the Expo range from Drewitts Bulbs, which was a most popular stall last year, to Yamina Collectors' Nursery, and include Nettie Davies's Peonies, Speciality Cliveas, and the Post Office Farm Nursery, which specialises in hellibores. A new exhibitor is Misty Downs Nursery, which features old fashioned and heritage roses and perennials. Maria McCarter, one of the six people taking part in the speakers' program, owns Sunset Valley Chicks and is a committed poultry person. Maria lives on 68 acres in Collins Rd, Flowerdale. She is an art therapist with her own business and chooks are even used as part of her therapy work. Maria's extensive set-up of pens and runs houses 11 types of pure bred chooks, from well known Light Sussex, to rarer breeds such as Campine and Belgian D'Uccle. Maria is interested in breeding colour variations with her birds and her Blue-laced Red Wyandottes are most attractive. Maria and her family live off the grid and she uses broody hens to hatch all the chickens which

● Mariua McCarter with a favourite rooster she sells. Maria keeps the larger breeds for people who are interested in using poultry for eggs and meat, and also has bantams such as Pekins and Silkies which appeal for backyard pets. She recommends Australorp bantams as the best laying small breed. At the Expo, Maria will talk about looking after your chooks and she will have a display of some of the different breeds which she raises. The Expo will be held at the Yea RaceCourse and Golf Club from 10am to 4pm on September 23-24. Entry is $5, and there is no charge for children under 16 years of age.

Local Paper Magazine

■ Judy Garland won many awards for her great body of work during her short lifetime, including a posthumous Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1997. She has also been named as one of the Greatest Female Stars of All Time. I could not agree more. Frances Ethel Gumm was born in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, in 1922. Frances began singing with her sisters at an early age in their parent's picture/vaudeville theatre. Her father died when she was 12 years old and this had an effect on her mental health. In 1929 the Gumm Sisters made their film debut in a short subject titled The Big Revue. By 1935 the singing group were touring and changed their name to The Garland Sisters and Frances adopted the stage name of Judy Garland. Her big break came when she appeared in the film Broadway Melody of 1938 and sang the song You Made Me Love You to a photograph of Clark Gable. At the age of 16 Judy Garland was cast as Dorothy Gale in the classic film The Wizard of Oz and sang the song Over The Rainbow that was to become her signature tune for the rest of her life. I spoke to Jerry Maren in a radio interview

Whatever Happened To ... Judy Garland

By Kevin Trask of 3AW and 96.5 Inner FM

about working as a Munchkin in the 1939 film. Jerry recalled that Judy was wonderful to the Munchkins and would always go out of her way to talk to them during the filming. Jerry was the one who handed Judy the lollypop when they welcomed her to Munchkinland. She was cast opposite Mickey Rooney in nine films and they were a wonderful on screen team. Over the years Mickey Rooney has always spoken fondly of Judy Garland. I saw him in concert and he said he would love to go back to the fabulous days at MGM

with dear Judy. Her films at MGM Studios included Little Nelly Kelly, Presenting Lily Mars, Meet Me in St Louis, The Harvey Girls, For Me and My Gal, Easter Parade and Summer Stock. Judy became addicted to drugs which apparently were given to her to maintain her busy work schedule. Her health began to fail and she was dismissed from the MGM Studios in 1950. She made a triumphant return to the screen in A Star Is Born and was nominated for an Academy Award in 1954. Judy performed in concert at Carnegie Hall to rave reviews. In 1962 her television series began and many of the great performers were guests on the show. The Australian concert tour in 1964 turned into a disaster when Judy kept the audience at Festival Hall in Melbourne waiting for over an hour and she was booed off the stage. This incident created international headlines. My friend, the late Tony Osborne, was musical director for Judy's final tour in Copenhagen during 1969. Tony told me that Judy was at her best at 4am. He was called to her room on several occasions at that time when Judy just wanted to talk to someone and he said she was lucid and the conversations were unforgettable.

5

Johnny Ray was also on that tour and was best man at her wedding to Mickey Deans. A great thrill for me was to meet and interview Judy's daughter Lorna Luft, who is also a grea talent. That was the closest I ever got to Judy Garland. In an interview Judy once said: "As for my feelings toward Over The Rainbow, it's become part of my life. “It is so symbolic of all my dreams and wishes that I'm sure that's why people sometimes ge tears in their eyes when they hear it." Judy was married five times and had three children, Liza, Lorna and Joey. Judy Garland died in London at the age of 47 on June 22 1969. The world lost a great singing star on tha day. Earlier this year, her family had her body moved from Ferncliff Cemetery in New York to Hollywood Forever Cemetery in California. Kevin Trask Kevin can be heard on radio The Time Tunnel - on Remember When Sundays at 9.10pm on 3AW That's Entertainment - 96.5FM Sundays at 12 Noon 96.5FM is streaming on the internet. To listen, go to www.innerfm.org.au and follow the prompts.

Amazing statistics for top-runner Winx ■ I must pay credit to fellow colleague, Ray Thomas, the top racing writer in the coat-hanger city. He produced some amazing stats about current racing champion Winx, who made it 18 wins on end in a nail biter in the Warwick Stakes in Sydney after missing the start by about four lengths over the sprint journey of 1400 metres. It was Winx's first start since winning her second Cox Plate at Moonee Valley last October, plus the unfamiliar track of a good surface, she prefers the wet. She ran her last 200 metres in 10.8 seconds, a time she has never recorded before, similar to the other champion mare, Black Caviar, who did it twice in her 25 straight victories. Ray Thomas has produced the following stats on the champion mare Winx. ■ Her fuel consumption consists primarily of hay and oats, consuming 35,000 calories per day. An adult human is advised to eat about 2500 calories a day. ■ Breathing: Lungs breathe in and out 140 times a minute, distributing 150 litres of air per second, which averages about 10,000 litres per race. This what human beings breathe in a day. ■ Heart capacity: Horses average 240 heartbeats minute, moving 60 pints of blood during a race. ■ A racehorse's heart weights about 4 kilos, while a human's heart is about 300 grams. Phar Lap's heart was nearly 7 kilos. ■ Champion American galloper Secretariat's Heart weighed in at 10 kilos. ■ Stride length: Winx’s stride length has been measured at close to 6.8 metres. ■ The average stride length for racehorse is about 6.1 metres. ■ Black Caviar’s stride reached 8.42 metres. ■ The great Bernborough, who raced in the late forties and early fifties, is believed to have had the longest stride at nearly an incredible 8.6 metres. ■ Stride frequency: Most racehorses have a stride frequency of between 130 and 140 per minute. ■ Winx has been measured at nearly 170 strides per minute. This is a speed and frequency she can maintain over an extended distance while most horses lose both frequency and stride

Racing

with Ted Ryan length. What about those stats? They staggered me, especially the length of their strides. You learn something new every day, and this has opened my eyes about these great racehorses. ■ Racing Victoria is happy with the fact that wagering on horse racing in Victoria has surpasses the $6 billion mark, but warns that they have to be on the ball to keep up with the opposition. The results for the 12-month period from August 1, 2016, to July 31 this year, show that the customer engagement grew and that participation in Victorian racing continued to improve greater rewards for owners, breeders, trainers and jockeys. Analysis of the key racing and wagering data also indicated that it was a year of two distinct halves with an abnormally wet first half season and drier than expected in the second half, ultimately providing a balanced set of metrics for the season. Chief Executive, Glen Thompson, said: "I want thank the clubs, trainers, owners, jockeys, together with the media and wagering partners, for their collaboration in supporting strategies that have worked to strengthen Victorian racing and drive greater engagement, attendance and wagering results for our sport". Racing Victoria is committed to share key racing, wagering and participation statistics Key results for the 2016-17 Victorian racing season were as follows:

■ Wagering turnover grew by 8.4 per cent with the total surpassing $6 billion for the first time to ultimately reach $6.24 billion; ■ Turnover during the rebranded Festival of Racing, which encapsulated nine Group One races and 13 country cups in February-March, grew by 22 per cent with attendances up 1.8 per cent; ■ The consolidation of Thursday night meetings was a peak timeslot with 25.8 per cent growth in average turnover per meeting and a rise in average field size from 9.1 starters to 9.5 starters per race; ■ The continued emergence of the four standalone Saturday meetings in country Victoria with attendances up 18.1 per cent and turnover up 9.4 per cent across the quartet of meetings; ■ State-wide attendances consistent at a nation-high 1.34 million with country racing delivering 1.5 per cent growth to offset a second half decline in metropolitan attendances due to the Flemington grandstand development; ■ The Warrnambool May Racing Carnival attracted an attendance of more than 30,000 racegoers over the three days making it one of the highest attended Australian events outside of the Spring Racing Carnival; ■ The number of owners participating in Victorian racing topped 68,000, with a 16.5 per cent increase in the amount of VOBIS bonuses claimed; ■ The average prizemoney and bonuses claimed at each TAB meeting was $369,902 with the average earnings per horse growing by 3.1 per cent; ■ 543 trainers and 280 jockeys, won races during the season with the number winning Saturday metropolitan races increasing by 5.5 per cent and 17.9 per cent respectively; ■ 8668 individual horses-down 0.5 per cent on 2015-16-competed across 4187 TAB races with the average number of starts per horse remaining at 4.83; ■ A 200 per cent increase in the number of heavy tracks in the first half saw the average field size reduce to 9.9. starters per race, during the period before averaging 10.1 starters, per race in the drier second half of the season; ■ Victoria welcomed the 200th international horse during the 2016 Spring Racing Carnival with 24 prepared from the Werribee Quarantine Centre during the season. - Ted Ryan

OK. With John O’Keefe Gibbo farewell plans

■ In an interview with the Seven Network, retiring Hawks defender Josh Gibson declared his plans after football. “I'm planning on getting a job as a rodeo rider.”said Josh. It sure tops theusual spiel of retirees of “spending more time with the family'' or “do some work in the media”. Best of luck Josh , a three times premiership player with a credit bank of 225 games , first with North Melbourne, then onto the Hawks.

Jimbo back on the box

■ It seems seasons since James Brayshaw was seen on Channel 9 . He is soon to returm on a different channel, in a different role. James will join the commentry team on Channel 7 calling the E.J.Whitten game scheduled in the lead-up to AFLFinals. It would be interesting to be a fly on the wall if Brayshaw is asked his opinion about so-called new look Footy Show with Eddie McGuire.

Farnham back on stage

■ How's this for a line up ? John Farnham. Daryl Braithwaite, The Black Sorrows, 1927, and Baby Animals. They are all appearing in the one concert, March 2018 in a Red Hot Special. Dates and venues; ■ Wodonga - Gateway Lakes , March 3 ■ Mornington - Racecourse , March 10 ■ Bendigo - Jockey Club, March 17 Tickets at Ticketmaster .

Jerry and Sam

■ The late Jerry Lewis and Victoria’s very own Sam Newman have something in common. Both Ludites when it comes to using computers and almost all social media , other than mobile phones.

Legal action against Nine

■ An Afganistan war veteran, Chrissy Ashcroft, gained fame after appearing on The Voice . She has since launched defermation agaist the Nine Network and a secretive website that claims to have exposed military imposters. Nine and the website have been accused of misrepresenting her war service record. Stay tuned. - John O’Keefe

Showbiz Odd Spot ■ I was walking through The Block Arcade in Collins St, Melbourne and caught up with an old friend. There he was in the window of Haigh's Chocolates. Many years ago, I used to see The Little Man Who Taps on the Window in L.P. Alexander's Tailor shop at 214 Swanston St. He was made famous in a radio jingle by Ron Blaskett and Gerry Gee. - Kevin Trask

To untangle what happened to the son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller, who vanished in 1961, he learned to speak Indonesian and lived in a remote village amidst 10,000 square miles of road-less swamp with a tribe of former headhunters and cannibals on the southwest coast of New Guinea.

To report Lunatic, he travelled 50,000 miles around the world on its most dangerous conveyances, including by bus across Afghanistan and through the Gobi desert on a 20-ton propane truck. A contributing editor at National Geographic Traveller and a former contributing editor for Wired, Hoffman has traveled to more than 75 countries on assignment for Outside; Smithsonian; National Geographic Adventure; ESPN, the Magazine; Wired; Men's Journal; Popular Mechanics and many other

■ "Technology today now provides us with a wonderful opportunity to feel like we're all sitting in the same room, enjoying a memorable discussion,” said Cr McAulay. “We've had fabulous feedback from people who've come along saying they forget they're not actually in the same room as our guests - it's such an easy, personal experience. "I love the fact that our Library staff have taken the attitude 'If the mountain won't go to Mohammad, then Mohammad must go to the mountain'. “And the technology now enables us to do this with ease,” Cr McAulay said.

Local History

Rich heritage at Sacred Heart Church ■ The St Patrick’s Gymkhana entailed a great deal more work than people today would be prepared or expected to do. Tom Dignam was secretary (or joint) for more than half the Gymkhanas held and among outstanding contributors were the Coonan and Oliver families. The Gymkhana was first held at the Racecourse, then moved to the Recreation Reserve in 1936. St Patrick’s Racing Club held its first race meeting on the day before Christmas Eve in 1950 with Pat Sheehan secretary (six years). The late Clyde Tratford - Ball Secretary for over a quarter of a century - was then secretary of both St Pat’s and the Yea Racing Club before moving elsewhere. Early the Parish Priest was a nominal president, but Pat Quinlan was elected in 1963 to serve for 18 valuable years, to be followed by Peter Hauser. Secretary, as at 1990, was Miss Tottie Slavin, with niece Melissa as assistant. A very successful organisation for 25 years was the Cathollic Social Club, which met at the old school, generally on Sunday night.s As well as fortnightly in-house activities and the occasional excursion, the group of young people went public on a number of occasions with three-act plays. Of these The Flying Death in 1937 was a milestone which earned the club some genuine fame. In 1948 - quite late - a School Auxiliary was formed, and blessed with good leaders, has raised large sums of money for school needs, besides assisting in many practical ways. In the days of active, or necessary, Friendly Societies, there was a strong branch of the Hibernians in Yea, with names like Thomas Donnelly and Mick Egan (secretary for many years) prominent. The Knights of the Southern Cross also were active for some years. Around 1929 Father Tim Daly launched ladies’ and men’s Sodalities (corporate monthly Communions - long since superseded) and the men’s section later became the Holy Name Society. Today the Chirch is more a single entity. In the late 1940s, Father John Wallis, on a return visit to Yea, addressed a meeting which was the forerunner of a brach of the Legion of Mary being formed. Seven r eight young girls carried out the demands of the Legion for a couple of years. Also around this time, the National Catholic Rural Movement sprang up, and it had a branch here for a while with regular meetings. A couple of attempts to keep a Youth Group functional (mainly for High School students) have been made. Many years ago there was an Altar Society which cdollected regular small contributions and looked after altar linen, etc. One name that comes to mind of a faithful organiser was that of Miss Elizabeth Dunn.

● From Sacred Heart Parish Yea 1890-1990 History compiled by Tom Dignam

said he could just remember Father Byrne, the new Parish Priest - and, of course, every one since. He recalled that not long after Father Ellis bought his little singleseater car, he was involved in an accident not far from the McCarthy home. He also had strong recollections of three very prominent churchmen - all John (Quinlan, McCormack and Sier), distinguished types who nevertheless “took up the plate”. Dinny represented the union of two prominent Homewood families - McCarthy and Slavin, though his own family moved from Whittlesea Road in 1917. He was one of those who compared the ease of Mass - attending in 1990 with that of half a century ago. Fasting from midnight, cows to milk and a journey by jinker to Yea. There was an occasional week-day Mass at Kerrisdale. Referring to changes over eight decades, Dinny was “all for” postVatican updating and rejoiced in the openness with other churches and the fine ecumenical spirit abroad especially in our own community, today. Another ‘senior’ parishioner, Mrs Kath Coonan, confirmed the difficulty experienced by country dwellers in earlier days. Formerly Kathleen Byrne, her family lived at Strath Creek before moving to Spring Valley Rd, Flowerdale (up to 30 cows to milk!). As a small girl she remembers

● The late Pat Quinlan, long-time St Pat’sClub President

The Caveat Church

Recollections ■ Well-known Parish identity, Dinny McCarthy, was three when Father O’Reilly left here in 1910 and he

Father Ellis saying Mass about every three months, at Brady’s residence at Break-O’-Day. This was continued by, at least, Fathers Willis and Egan. Kath spent a few years at the Kilmore Convent as a boarder. Later she rode a horse to Mass at Yea. She talked of the big crowds that used to attend Mass, and the atmosphere of quiet, reverent prayer. On a lighter vein, Kath recalled going to a dance on a Saturday night - “supper before midnight or none at all”, and she said she was very impressed with the way parishioners rally to any special or regular function - the ball, races, school affairs or the like. One of the oldest parishioners in 1990 was Mrs Anne Handley of Melbourne Road. Her parents, John Horan and Hannah Ahern, were married in the old church, from which they rode away on horseback. Mrs Handley was one of the big group confirmed by Archbishop Mannix in 1924. Quite a number were well past school-age, but she and others came for religious instruction at the school (in her case, per jinker from Homewood with a couple of others) for a week or more. Father Wallis and the Sisters were instructors and Father Lonergan examiner. The Queen Carnival of 1922-23 saw the then-Annie Horan become really involved. She worked for the Queen of Charity and says it is hard to describe how hard the Stafford sisters, and their mother and other helpers worked. Mr Mick Coonan was their secretary and would drive the ladies around in a buggy and pair raffling or collecting. On one occasion they went to her district’s sports meeting and on the way home “Dora found that the money bag and a watch were missing”. They envisaged an almost fruitless search in the dark, but met a future Homewood resident, Mr Bill Noye, with a lantern. He had found the missing articles, with every penny still intact. The Queen of Charity ran a close second to Miss Molly Quinlan.

■ Seventy-five years ago, Mass was celebrated occasionally at Highlands, Flowerdale and Kerrisdale . In the Highlands/Caveat area, there had been an influx of central European families, particularly after World War II. Mainly of Slovak or Czech, Polish and Ukranian background, this community set about building their own branch. Official builder (and designer) was Mr Peter Yuritta. Land was donated by Mr K.D. (Doug) McAlpin, and a wooden church built almost voluntarily, was completed in the mid-1950s. ● Continued Next Page

Local History ● Continued from previous page It was opened in 1955, when many campatriots came from Melbourne for the official blessing. This was performed by Mosignor Hannan. A few years later Bishop Fox blessed a bell tower, the bell being especially imported from Germany. Dedicated to Our Lady of Seven Sorrows, the church also incorporates a panel depicting Saint Isadore praying and an outside crucifix and attractive grotto. The whole setting became a tourist attraction, but with deaths and movement of young people to the metropolis, attendances at monthly or twice-monthly Masses dwindled to less than double figures. The inevitable happened at the end of 1988, and the few remaining parishioners chose between Euroa, Seymour and Yea. There had been the occasional marriage celebrated there (Emil Kopanica and Anne Hlinka were the first), and Father Tibor from Melbourne conducted some colourful Masses at the church.

Tangible, memorial gifts ■ As well as the granite altar and statue of the Sacred Heart mentioned earlier, there are various gifts, generally memorials, still in the church. (There are probably others not identifiable or visible.) The Crucified Christ, for many years in the pivotal position of the Sanctuary, was presented by Joseph and Margaret McCormick (spelt with an “i”) and their family in memory of Elizabeth Jane Swift, 1900. The Stations of the Cross (replacing a former 14 in 1927) were donated by Mr W.F. Chisholm, in memory of his sister Margaret (killed in an accident in 1920) and the name of an uncle, Roderick Chisholm (d. 1938) was added. Visitors have remarked that the Statues are a work of art. The vestment press in the sacristy features a brass plate with this inscription - “A.M.D.G. - To the memory of Father Patrick O’Reilly, who built this church. Presented by his sister and her husband, Mr and Mrs Chas. Hamilton, Kilmore, 1917”. Five-lamp candles and adoring angels can be seen on the side chapel and near the church entrance.

The School competed in the first combined athletic sports in 1938 and performed creditably. Later it was transferred to the rural section of the local schools organisation and run the shield on many occasions. Later still it competed against Primary School houses and had some success. These competitions are not run on the same lines today. Some sporting visits have been exchanged with St Mary’s, Alexandra. Over the years great improvements to the school grounds have been made thanks to Auxiliary members, general parishioners and on one occasion the Yea Lions Club. Two significant public functions have been held during the 16 years prior to 1990 to identify happenings connected the School. In oCtober, 1974, a special Mass to celebrate its golden jubilee (a year overdue but tying in with that of the actual Convent) was held,m in the ● The church at Caveat.

■ A large number of parishioners went to Kilmore on Sunday, December 18, 1932, for the Ordination (my Most Rev. W. Hayden, Archbishop of Hobart) of local identity, John Wallis. (A bus was chartered for the carless, more common in those days.) On the Tuesday, Father Wallis celebrated his second Mass at Yea, then again on Christmas Day at 10am. On that occasion, Yea had the experience of a genuine Dawn Mass - 6am. ■ Father Wallis celebrated his golden jubilee, and in January, 1983, returned to Yea for a commemorative Mass and luncheon, at which he met many parishioners and friends from Yea and Homewood. His priestly life was spent in Tasmania, and he was founder of the Missionary Sisters of Service. ■ Besides Father Wallis, others who are locals or ex-residents of Yea still in religious life in 1990 included his brother, Father Brian Wallis, Father Gerard Loughnan and Peter Robb. Professed Sisters serving in 1990 were Claire and Josephine Mahon and Marie McCarthy (Presentation) and Carmel Dignam (Mercy). ■ On Sunday, December 9, 1934, a large Yea contingent travelled by special train to the Melbourne Eucharistic Congress. An estimated 60,000 men took part in a proce3ssion. Some 39 years later residents found their own transport to the 40th Congress. Large crowds attened the Ecumenical Night and the Mass (MCG). ■ The Parish hired a bus on a Sunday in June, 1955, to transport a good many parishioners to a Catholic Life Exhibition at the Exhibition Buildings. ■ Again in 1986 many locals travelled by bus or private transport, when Pope Paul II visited Melbourne. Peter Hauser, of Yea, received Holy Communion from His Holiness at a Mass (Flemington Racecourse) attended by thousands of the faithful. ■ An addition to the church over recent years has been the organ made available through the Bacon Legacy. Grace Bacon (nee Oliver) died in 1980, and her husband, Alex, three years later. Significant facts surrounding the gift are the Alex was not a Catholic, and the actual organ was selected by Father Peter Williams (who played it on special occasions), the then Rector of St Luke’s Anglican Church. ■ Choirs have come and gone in the life of the Sacred Heart Church. two organists and leaders who gave long service were Nance Quinlan and Mary Coonan. The late Mrs Con McCarthy sang for something like 40 years. ■ A list of altar boys who served at Yea would be impssible to compile, and the same applies to collectors. Easy to recall are ‘Sandy’ McLure and son Alex., Jack Bennett, ‘Bonny and Clyde’ (Byrne and Tratford), Bill Collins, Dinny and Mick McCarthy, and John Jeffery.

Local Briefs GRVT recognition

MP’s praise for local female police officers ■ Yan Yean MLA Danielle Green last week praised local female police officers. “I rise to put on record my community’s gratitude to our local police officers, who work tirelessly protecting all of us,” Ms Green told the Legislative Assembly. “In particular I want to single out in the Parliament our female police personnel, as they have not been given the recognition that they deserve for their many decades of service to this state. “Diamond Creek local Colleen Woolley, herself a former police officer who retired as a senior sergeant in the 1990s, has recently launched an updated edition of Arresting Women: Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Women in the Victoria Police. “Her first edition was released in 1997, for which, along with her work policing, she was

“Our early policewomen pioneers received half the pay of constables, had no powers of arrest and were not entitled to a pension. “Women received no basic drill and self-defence training and were not acknowledged in the police force command. “The book also highlights the number of firsts between the 1997 and 2017 editions, including an increase in the number of women with commissioned rank from 15 to 78 and of course our very first female chief commissioner, Christine Nixon. “The embodiment of fe● Danielle Green MLA male achievement in Victoria some years afterwards recognised with an Order of Police is on display at Diamond Creek police station, with SeAustralia Medal. “The treatment of women nior Sergeant Joy Murphybein Victoria Police decades ago ing the longest serving policeand up until quite recently woman in Australasia, serving makes for difficult reading in over 16,000 days,” Ms Green Colleen’s book. said.

■ Goulburn River Valley Tourism should be officially recognised for its achievements, Euroa MLA Stephanie Ryan has told State Parliament: “I am calling today for the Minister for Tourism and Major Events to provide official recognition and funding for Goulburn River Valley Tourism,” Ms Ryan said. “GRVT has for a number of years done the work of an official tourism body representing the shires of Murrindindi, Mitchell, Strathbogie and Shepparton.”

Equality hurt

■ Eltham MLA Vicki Ward says hurt is being caused in the lead-up to the postal survey over marriage equality. “My question is to the Minister for Equality, and I refer to the wounds that are already opening up in my community thanks to the Federal Government’s weak decision to conduct a marriage equality postal survey,” Ms Ward told the Legislative Assembly. “Minister, there is strong support in my community for marriage equality, and there is deep concern regarding the emotional hurt this bizarre, ill-thought-out and unnecessary survey will cause. “I have spoken to local community members who are already hurting because of this survey and the harmful words it is generating. “Minister, they feel like collateral damage in the federal Liberal and National Party coalition government’s cultural war with itself. “This $122 million survey is stupid and painful; however, the reality is it is happening. This does not stop me from campaigning for a yes, nor does it concern me from being concerned about the wellbeing “of my local LGBTI community. “Minister, what is the state government doing to look after the emotional and mental health of my local LGBTI community?” Ms Ward asked.

Around and About Y Water Centre ■ A question about the Y Water Discovery Centre at Yea was answered at last week’s meeting of Murrindindi Shire Council. “The Y Water Centre Inc. is an incorporated body which holds a Crown Land licence and a Memorandum of Understanding with Council for the Y Water Discovery Centre in Yea,” said Margaret Abbey, Chief Executive Officer. “Council has two part-time employees who work from the Y Water Discovery Centre. These positions provide tourism support to the Y Water Discovery Centre and other Visitor Information Centres.”

Lording reports

■ Cr Eric Lording reported on municiapl infrastructure projects at last week’s Murrindindi Shire Council meeting: “The replacement of Drayton's Bridge at Fairview Rd commenced this week - The replacement of Dairy Creek Rd Bridge has been completed - Scale house at Yea Regional Saleyards is expected to be completed at the end of this week. “We are also increasingly using Facebook to provide updates on our capital works program. Recent posts about closures, re-openings and detours associated with our bridge works are examples of this and so please keep an eye on Facebook. There are a number of carry forwards on things like the Yea Town Hall, some bridges, the sale yards and other small projects.”

Saleyards query

■ A query about the Yea Saleyards was directed to last week’s meeting of Murrindindi Shire Council. Margaret Abbey, CEO, said: “The Yea Saleyards Section 86 Committee of Management is a Special Committee of Council delegated under the Local Government Act 1989 to manage the Yea Saleyards on behalf of Council. “Council currently has 16 Section 86 Committees of Management, including for example - the Yea Wetlands Committee of Management and the Yea Pioneer Reserve Committee of Management. “The Yea Saleyards Co-ordinator role is employed by Council and funded from the Yea Saleyards funds. “The role assists the Committee of Management in its operation of the Yea Saleyards. “Council purchased the neighbouring parcel of land in 2016. Council then altered the Committee of Management’s delegated area to include this parcel of land. “More information regarding Council's Section 86 Committees and a Governance Manual can be found on Council's website,” Ms Abbey said.

Redbacks victory

■ Eltham MLA Vicki Ward has offered State Parliament recognition for the Redbacks team: “Congratulations to the Eltham Redbacks Football Club on their outstanding success in hosting their annual fundraising game for Cancer Council Victoria last Friday night,” Ms Ward told the Legislative Assembly. “It was a freezing night, but the crowds came, tables were covered in donated cakes and raffle prizes and we watched two great games from the Redbacks women’s teams. “The club raised over $1500 on the night, and this event, now in its ninth year, has raised more than $20 000. “Well done to club president Ivan Dalla Costa on his commitment to this worthy cause, and I acknowledge the work of Cameron Lockhart, seniors women’s coach Frankie Gallagher, assistant coach Kristian Lip and team manager Tania Houghton. “On the night the Redbacks did it in style, with a 5-1 win over Preston in the Women’s State League 1 North-West clash, with Zoe Houghton and Keely Lockhart each scoring two goals and Natasha Lusi also scoring. “Congratulations to this terrific team. Players on the night were Georgia Peel, Amy Massey, Natasha Lusi, Tara De Melo, Clarissa Garra, Naomi Harris, Zoe Houghton, Kate Hodgson, Niamh Kearney, Rei Kori, Alex Ohanian, Chelsea Lockhart, Sheridan Lockhart, Emma Jones, Hannah Richards and Keely Lockhart,” Ms Ward said.

YEA NETBALL REPORTS A-GRADE

■ A-Grade was up against tough rivals, Yarra Glen. Yea had an outstanding first quarter, dominating possession and applying some amazing one-on-one pressure. Brooke was working over time in GK, rebounding, covering the body, reading the play and working with her team. Bridget was amazing all game, since carrying an injury, she didn't back down and let Yarra Glen beat her. She took some absolute ripper intercepts, as well as taking some beautiful rebounds. Sarah shut down Yarra Glen's WA during the first, which meant Yarra Glen were finding it hard to score. Chelsea was yet again brilliant in C, showing high intensity all game and throwing everything at the ball. She worked very well with Megan in WA, who showed some sharp moves in attack Megan connected well with Nikki and Meg who were dominating under post. Yea was jus a little better to start off with, which saw them out to a one-goal lead. The second quarter Yea let Yarra slip back into the game. Some loose balls and major errors meant that Yarra gained possession and scored. Yea kept pushing on and they even worked harder to fight for the lead. Half-time saw Yarra Glen lead by five goals. Soph W was in some fine form in WA, contesting every ball and feeding exceptionally wel to Nikki and Meg. Nikki was moving well, creating some much needed space for Meg. Meg was vital in the GS position, rebounding every shot was beyond amazing. Down the other end Soph S deflected some awesome balls Chasing some loose balls and working wel with both Bridget and Brooke. Yarra Glen pushed the lead out to 10. The last quarter, Yea had to push and try and to remain calm. Considering the scoreboard, Yea didn't give up. Next week they will come out even stronger They will be up against Kinglake this week which will be a game to watch. Location is stil to be confirmed. Well done and good luck for this weeks game!

teams going in with confidence. Yea was determined to score the first goal of the game and they did, then dominating the first few minutes of the game, capitalising on costly errors from the Rebels. Rhi and Rach had a battle on their hands with the very dangerous Alex goal throwers but they rallied and got their fingertips to some incoming balls. Yea held a 4-5 goal lead until mid-way through the quarter before the Rebels started to pick up their form to trail Yea by only one goal at quarter time. (11-10) Things really tightened up in the second quarter, both teams going goal for goal early. Rach, Cindy N and Loz did a mighty job on the Alex centre passes, and with the aid of Kate coming up from WA, many balls went Yea's way. Alex got stronger as the quarter continued, taking the lead out to four at one stage, but the Tigers kept chipping away and after a brilliant intercept from Rhi in GK the Tigers got one break back to trail by two at half-time. (21-23) Changes were made with fresh legs coming into the midcourt in Chels and Reggie and Cindy N was moved back into the GD position. The changes disrupted the momentum of the Rebels and the Tigers started strongly, getting goals on the board early and keeping level or within one of Alex. Reggie and Chelsea's fresh legs proved a winner as the quarter progressed and the movement and ball delivery from the back end to the forward line started to really lift for Yea. In goals, Reg and Cindy H relished the quick ball movement, moving well to receive the delivery and forcing the Alex defenders into chase mode. The momentum swung in Yea’s favour, purely through their hard work and by ¾-time the Tigers had reversed the margin their way. (33-31) Yea's last quarter was a ripper, scoring the first few goals of the quarter after brilliant defensive pressure all over the court. Of course none better than the back trio of Rhi, Cin and Loz whose relentless pressure started to continually force the Rebels attack into errors. The Rebels kept the goals on the board early but eventually Yea took over the game. Fresh legs again in the Centre with Kate and strong work from Reggie in WA really opened up the attacking end, the goal throwers sinking 99 per cent of their shots, Reg 10 for the quarter. Yea winners by 12. Well done girls on a hard fought and impressive victory, done with great positivity and team work. Yea will now meet the undefeated Belgrave next Sunday for a place in the Grand Final. Yea 49 def Alexandra 37 Goals: C. Hayes 25, A. Akers 24 Best: C. Newcomen, C. Hayes, A. Akers - Cindy Hayes

maintain possession. Slowing the ball down was a well needed in the poor conditions. Belgrave came out even stronger after the first quarter and Yea couldn't adjust enough to stay in touch on the scoreboard. The second half saw a few more changes, with Rhi and India moving into the midcourt. They worked well together, committing to their drives and trying to steady the play down. Kate moved back into GD, working very well with Sarah, who was putting everything on the line. Jill entered the game at WD, where she applied some amazing one on one pressure. Belgrave still had the lead after three quarter time. The last quarter the Tigers just kept chipping away, trying to work on the basics in the terrible conditions. Despite the scoreboard, everyone held their head up and finished the game off strong. Next week D-Grade will face Alexandra, hopefully in better conditions. Good try and good luck for next week.

D-GRADE

■ It was a very cold morning for the D-Grade girls, with rain, hail and shine. Captain Sarah Lobley got the girls warm and ready for the game ahead. Working well together during warm up, meant that D-Grade could carry that out during the game. Everyone started off well in the heavy conditions, working together, reading off each other and playing their game. In the attacking end, saw Alicia and Amy working well together, passing out to Harriet and Ebony. Harriet did an enormous amount in the midcourt, applying some must needed pressure. Kate, Leisa and Sarah were awesome in defence, deflecting a lot of balls from Belgrave's attacking end. Belgrave started off a little stronger than the Tigers, which saw Belgrave out to a five-goal lead. Going in to the second quarter, coach Deb stuck to the same positions. Due to the poor con-

YEA JUNIOR NETBALL REPORT UNDER 14. DIVISION 2

■ 1st Quarter. Blue skies and a blustery cold wind greeted Yea as we made the trek to take on Euroa at home. Euroa has been unbeaten all season so Yea knew this would be a tough game. Both sides get the jitters out of the way, great passing from Yea and Olivia shot our first goal. Sarah and Emma defended well in Euroa goal end, Sarah great on the rebound. Good pressure from Yea and Euroa were kept to six goals for the quarter. ■ 2nd Quarter. Euroa started the quarter with a few quick goals. Great work by Lily and Grace and the ball moved to the Yea end, Olivia responded by shooting three goals. Euroa were really applying the pressure to Yea as they score some quick goals. Good communication and passing from Yea and Remi hit back with two goals. Euroa were too strong this quarter and they led by 11 at half time. ■ 3rd Quarter. Both teams were applying the pressure and intercepts saw the ball move up and down the court, this quarter was as hard and fast as the second. A great intercept by Maddie resulted in a goal by Remi. Lily and Grace were running hard trying to stop the Euroa girls but once again it was another strong quarter by Euroa who led by 20 goals. Yea needed to pull out all stops going into the final quarter. ■ 4th Quarter. With a big lead to claw back Yea came out fighting from the start. Passing was better this quarter from the Yea girls. Great plays by Lily in centre and Grace and Maddie on the wing. Sarah and Emma are worked well, desperately trying to shut down the strong Euroa shooters. Unfortunately the lead was too big and Euroa took out a great win. Congratulations to the Euroa players, a mighty effort to remain unbeaten for the season. Congratulations to all of the Yea team. Every game you showed improvement and your determination each week paid off coming runners up in the Grand Final, you should be very proud of yourselves. Thank you to coaches Sarah and Meg and also the parents, family and friends who have come every week to support the girls. Final Score: Euroa 37 def Yea 14 - Jacqui Canton

ALEXANDRA FOOTBALL-NETBALL CLUB REPORT SATURDAY

■ The AFL Yarra Ranges League 2017 Division 2 Finals commenced last Saturday and the Rebels travelled to Yarra Junction with two football teams and three netball teams representing the District, both football teams and C- and DGrade netball involved in Elimination Finals, and B-Grade netball playing Yea in a Qualifying Final. RESERVES The Reserves added Ryan Carter, Conor Heaslip, Jonathan Noy and Chase Pearce in the team that comprehensively accounted for Seville in last Saturday's last home and away game at the Showgrounds. As expected Seville fronted with a much different line up but due to the fact that their seniors were playing just down the road were not able to pack their reserves as at Olinda last year. Alexandra began to the main road end and although Seville was first into attack the Alex defense stood firm as coach Matt Herridge got his side away to a good start with the first two goals followed by one to Ben Podger-Carroll from a spectacular mark. Alex was showing plenty of commitment to the contest but Seville goaled late in the quarter as Alex led by two goals at the first change. Jonathan Noy goaled from well out in the second quarter but Seville replied with a goal off the ground and then after an Alex behind, PodgerCarroll marked the misdirected kick-in for his second goal. Although Seville were just as hard at the contests Alexandra were much cleaner with the ball in the open and led by 23 points at half-time. Podger-Carroll kicked his third goal and along with Jacob Brereton who added the next two goals was playing well with the defence also well on top. Alex had the match won at the last change leading by 41 points as the hail hit the ground and sensing the game was lost Seville dropped their earlier competitiveness and Alex added seven further goals (four to Scott Isaacs) in a one sided last quarter to run out big winners 15.9 (99) to Seville 2.3 (15). Awards: Caltex $25 fuel card - David Bourke, Alex Sportspower $20 award - Tom Halligan, Hoova's @ Mt.Pleasant $20 meal - Conor Heaslip, Corner Hotel $20 meal - Jacob Brereton, Corner Hotel 5 pots - Daniel Roper. SENIORS The Seniors, who finished the home and away season in fourth-place played Powelltown in an Elimination Final with the record one home ground win each during the season, the Rebels including Daniel Rouget and Callum Tranter, the injured Jack Goonan and Brent McDonald. The Junction oval was showing the effects of recent rain which continued on and off throughout the match so after an inordinately break between games Alexandra began to the river end but Powelltown were first to work the ball forward and put the Alex defence under pressure. When Alex went forward the Demons defence was able to clear as neither side scored in the first six minutes until a Powelltown behind. Alexandra struggled to get clear possession and most disposals seemed to be rushed causing several turnovers but finally Ryley Norris got a clear possession going forward and Scott Hill kicked the first goal of the game. The defence, led by Scott Heveren, was working hard as Alex again went forward and Matt Steiner snapped a good goal before Powelltown kicked their first goal late in the quarter. Brayden Norris had a chance after a fine diving mark but was off line as Alexandra took a six-point lead to the quarter time break. The play was bottled up on the scoreboard forward flank as players threw themselves into the contests, Alex could not find targets going forward and the Powelltown defence took many intercepting marks. The Alex defence and some poor kicking for

ALEXANDRA FOOTBALL-NETBALL CLUB REPORT

goal by their opponents were keeping Alexandra in the game before the Demons finally kicked the only goal for the quarter as both defenses were on top. Alexandra were contesting and tackling well but Powelltown took a three-point lead to the clubrooms at half-time. Alex took the lead back early in the third quarter when Brayden Norris goaled but due to the conditions, the standard of play was poor with consecutive ball-ups as players were tackled as soon as they took possession of the ball. Powelltown were on top generally but continued to miss what they should have kicked as scores were level until a Powelltown goal gave them the lead. When Alex went forward they could not win a clear possession close enough to goal to score and if not for the Demons 1.7, would have trailed by more than the 10-point margin at three quarter time. The last term began with the play in the Powelltown half with the Alex defence again under pressure. A mark and goal to the Demons gave them a big break in the conditions as Alex were having trouble getting the ball in their hands in a scoring position so Sam Kidd spectacularly kicked Alexandra's next goal out of the air. Powelltown soon replied with a goal off the ground at the river end as Alex tried hard to get back in the game but could not get any regular fluid movement going forward. Powelltown sealed the game with their sixth goal as time slipped by, Ryley Norris kicked the last goal of the game but Powelltown won comfortably 6.16 (52) to 5.4 (34) but 22 scoring shots to nine was probably a truer indication of the Demons' edge in handling the conditions. In an emotional speech in the rooms after the game coach Sam Kidd thanked the players for their efforts over the year, his assistants, the trainers and the Club for their support and cocoach Scott Rowan also confirmed those sentiments.

■ Breeders Crown racing at Tabcorp Park Melton highlighted the weekend, with eight Group One events and two Group Two's. The winners being : Wobelee (Alison Alford (trainer) - Chris Alford (driver) 2Y0 Trotting Colts & Geldings, Our Renezmae (Jack Harrington Dexter Dunn 2Y0 Trotting Fillies, War Spirit (Andy & Kate Gath) 3Y0 Trotting Colts & Geldings, Petacular (Michael Stanley T/D (3Y0 Pacing Fillies, Dont Hold Back (Mario Attard T/D 4Y0 Pacing Entires & Geldings), Nostra Villa (Emma Stewart - Chris Alford) 2Y0 Pacing Fillies, Our Little General (Emma Stewart - Chris Alford) 3Y0 Pacing Colts & Geldings, King Of Swing (Ray Green - David Butcher) 2Y0 Pacing Colts & Geldings, Dance Craze (Anton Golino - Nathan Jack) 3Y0 Trotting Fillies, Heavens Trend (Emma Stewart - Gavin Lang) 4Y0 Mares. ■ Veteran Sedgwick based trainer Graeme Dalton was back in the winners stall after a long absence, when 8Y0 It Is I-Sedgwick Lass gelding With Gusto scored in the Blue Hills Rise Claiming Pace over 2080 metres at Cranbourne on Tuesday August 22. Handled by Chris Alford, With Gusto was sent forward at the start from gate five, but was unable to head off the leader Ubringthedrinks (gate three), before dropping to his back to receive the run of the race. Taken away from the inside approaching the final bend, With Gusto confidently driven finished best to record a half neck victory over Im Intense (three wide last lap) which led on turning, with Anvil Gav using the sprint lane from three back the markers to finish third 11 metres away. The mile rate 1-59.8. ■ Long Forest (Bacchus Marsh) pair Andy and Kate Gath snared a double at the Cranbourne meeting - Mach Three-Braeview Express gelding Machiatto taking the Hygain 3Y0 Pace over 2080 metres and 4Y0 Bettors Delight-Best In Class gelding Selling The Dream the 1609 metre Seelite Windows & Doors Pace for C3 & C4 class. Machiatto led throughout, winning by a half neck from Fireashot along the sprint lane from three back and Redand Blue Fella which trailed the winner, also using the spacious sprint lane in a rate of 2-00.1, while Selling The Dream ran home stylishly from mid-field off a three wide trail on the back of Baccarat in the last lap to account for him and Dependlebury which raced wide in the early stages before settling outside the weakening leader Smile Lyle. The mile rate 1-56.6. ■ At Horsham the day before, 9Y0 Conch Deville-My Wish gelding Ainthatrightmacca, a trotter competing against the pacers scored in the DNR Logistics Pace for C0 class over 2200 metres. Raced by Michael Gadsden and Denbeigh Wade, trained by Michael and driven by Denbeigh, Ainthatrightmacca was trapped wide from gate six, having no option but to go back to the rear of the field as Luv Me Or Hate Me shadowed the heavily supported leader Champagne Taste. Weaving a passage in-between runners approaching the home turn, Ainthatrightmacca when taken into the clear on turning, finished at a great rate to record a runaway 4.7 metre margin over Souh Australian visitor Wells Crest (one/ two) and Just Be Modern (one/one), returning a mile rate of 2-02.2. ■ Armstrong trainer/driver Leroy O'Brien's smart 5Y0 Majestic Son-Starlet Lavec gelding Suave Taj was most impressive in taking the Pegasus Spur @ Woodlands Stud Trotters Handicap for T0 or better class over 2200 metres at Horsham. Coming from 30 metres, Suave Taj was soon racing outside the pacemaker Social Fireball and travelling easily. Surging clear prior to the home turn as Social Fireball went off stride, Suave Taj scored untouched by 13.5 metres in

advance of ever reliable mare Fiery Annie which trailed the winner from the bell in a rate of 204.2. Somebuddylikeyou was 14.7 metres back in third place off a mid-field trip. ■ Six year old Safari-Classic Courtia mare Ourgirlbillilee ended her racing career on a high note after winning the DNR Logistics Pace for C1 & C2 class (mares) over 1609 metres at Geelong on Wednesday, albeit in dramatic circumstances. Trained at Bacchus Marsh by Phil Chircop for owner Terry Turnbull, Our Girlbillilee was given a lovely trip from gate two on the second line by Zac Phillips, settling three back in the running line, with David Murphy's Athlone leading from gate five. Mak-

ing the final bend four wide, Ourgirlbillilee ran home strongly, just failing to pick up Athlone going down by a half head margin after the fron runner shifted ground in the straight. Returning to the all clear area, Zac lodged a protest against the winner which was upheld following a lengthy hearing. Island Five Star was 4.9 metres away after trailing the pacemaker and using the sprint lane to no avail. Ourbillilee is to now head for the breeding barn. ■ Horses to followLevina, Bridie Okane Lanista, Sammy Fitz, The Big Show, Fireashot All Jokers Todaright, Carl Mattgregor, Karalta Dazzler, Lucky Lombo. - Len Baker

SUNDAY

UNDER 16 NETBALL Alexandra 41 defeated by St Marys 48 After the girls enjoyed a team dinner after training last Thursday, the Under 16 girls played in their much anticipated Grand Final against the top of the table St Marys, the teams during the season having recorded a home court win each so the possibility of victory was high for each team. The Alexandra girls had an unsettling start in the first quarter, but regained their confidence in the second quarter to even the score at halftime. Although they continued to apply pressure to the St Mary's team and executed some exciting intercepts to change the direction of the ball, they just weren't able to score as many goals as their opponents in the end. Thank you to all of the spectators and supporters who came to Euroa to cheer the girls on and add to the excitement of the day. The team supported each other with guidance from coach Maggie Hamill, and in a manner that made the Club and all supporters proud. Well done girls. The Junior Presentation function for all four football and four netball teams will be held this coming Friday (Sept. 1) at the Club rooms with a 5.30 pm for a 6 pm start of the Under 10s and Under 12s football and netball followed by the Under 14s and then the Under 16s football and netball. The bar will be open and some finger food will be available at the conclusion of Under 12 presentations and again at the end of the evening. Entry is free and everyone is welcome. Anyone with football jumpers and netball dresses are asked to return them and there is also a collection of lost property available for viewing and claiming. - Ray Steyger
