Yea Heritage and History Exhibition ■ When Queen Victoria lost her husband and consort Prince Albert in 1861, a 20-year mourning period was decreed. Black garments became the norm, even for wedding gowns. Yea woman Val Borrie’s love for gowns started when she saw the black crushed velvet coat belonging to a relative of the time, May Louisa Stewart. In the 1980s, a Scottish aunt of Val’s late husband Ian had another of the beautiful gowns of the times. Since that time Val Borrie has exhibited gowns in her own collection, supplemented by those gifted from other district brides. Two years ago the collection was on show at the Wangaratta Cathedral. More than 60 gowns are being assembled for the Yea Heritage and History Exhibition to be staged at the Yea Shire Hall on Saturday-Sunday, September 16-17. ● Ad -Page 6

Yea’s Kelly McLeish is on top of the world ■ Raising money to assist mental health projects to fight depression fight depression, PTSD and suicide, Yea CFA volunteer Kelly McLeish completed her fourth 28-storey stair climb on Saturday (Sept. 2). Kelly ran the stairs, wearing 25kg of kit , helping to raise

$500,000 to improve support services, fund research, remove stigmas and raise awareness of mental health issues. The 500 firefighters - including those from Kinglake, Alexandra, Eildon, Tolangi and Yea - limbed to a finishing line on the 28th floor of the Metropol.

● CONCERNS about staffing levels at Whittlesea Police Station will be aired at a public meeting to be held at 7.30pm on Wednesday, September 13 at the Whittlesea Community Activity Centre, 57-61 Laurel St. This follows the controversial subject being raised late last month in State Parliament by Wendy Lovell MLC (Liberal). The S.O.S. - Save Our Station - meeting is expected to be attended by Parliamentarians, Councillors, Police leaders and rank-and-file members, as well as members of the public. “I have asked the Police Minister (Lisa Neville) for a written guarantee that the Whittlesea Police Station will remain open and that staffing levels will remain at the authorised strength of one senior sergeant, two sergeants and 12 senior constables or constables,” Ms Lovell said. Ms Lovell says there are community concerns that members will be moved to staff the soon-to-be-opened Mernda Police Station. Ms Lovell said there is evidence to suggest staffing at Whittlesea Police Station is being decreased in order to staff the new police complex, and the community had every right to be angry. “The authorised staffing numbers at Whittlesea Police Station is one senior sergeant, two sergeants and 12 senior constables or constables, but already we have seen four vacancies at the station remain unfilled with reports that they will be reassigned to the new station at Mernda,” Ms Lovell said. “This situation is exactly the opposite of what the Andrews Government promised when plans for the Mernda Police Station were unveiled.” Ms Lovell said both the Member for Yan Yean (Danielle Green, Labor) and local police command had given assurances that Mernda would be staffed by 45 additional police and that no members would be taken from Whittlesea or other nearby stations. “This was confirmed in Parliament by the Police Minister earlier this year but now we see a reduction of four constables at Whittlesea Police Station and hear of plans to reduce num

Public meeting called for Wed., Sept. 13

● Wendy Lovell MLC bers even further in the future to one sergeant and four or five members, Ms Lovell said. “The Whittlesea community is outraged by this blatant deception by the Andrews Labor Government and (it is) worried about the impact reduced police numbers will have on community safety in the Whittlesea township and surrounding areas,” Ms Lovell said. “ “The Police Association share their anger because they know — and I know — that the Whittlesea community deserve so much more and better.” Community activists say that it is important that loacl residents attend; “it needs each and everyone of us to be counted at this meeting, don't rely on ‘others’ representing you.”

■ The current gazetted strength of the Whittlesea Police Station is one senior sergeant, two sergeants and 12 senior constables or constables,” Wendy Lovell MLC has told State Parliament. “The last four vacancies from members who have left Whittlesea have not been filled, leaving a staff of one senior sergeant, two sergeants and eight members. “With two members currently on long-term leave, the actual strength at the moment is only six senior constables or constables - half the strength that it is supposed to be. “Police Association Victoria has now been informed by the local superintendent that the four unfilled vacancies at Whittlesea will not be filled but have been quarantined to be attached to the Mernda Police Station when it opens. “If that is not bad enough, the Police Association have been informed by police command that once Mernda opens, Whittlesea’s staffing levels will be reduced to just one sergeant and four to five senior constables or constables, more than halving its proper strength. “We have even seen this week the officer in charge of Whittlesea asked to hand over two portable radios because Mernda do not have enough equipment.”

From Our Files - 30 Years Ago Wednesday, September 9, 1987 ■ Yea Shire President Cr David Lawson asked Cr Steve Fleming if he would resign, following a 1987 report that Cr Fleming removed gravel from a roadside stack in Kinglake. “I do not consider that I have done anything that warrants my resignation,” Cr Fleming told the Council meeting 30 years ago.

Editor’s Diary

● Daryl Callander ■ We enjoyed much positive response to our publication of the local artworks of artist Lyle Dayman. Most response came was for frontpage colour shot of Lyle’s painting of High St, Yea, including the Shire Hall (Local Paper, Aug. 16). “But did you notice anything missing?” asked Local Paper reader Daryl Callander.

● Lyle Dayman’s painting of the Yea Shire Hall - without flagpole

Long Shots

See who salutes ■ Daryl explained that it was his late brother-in-law, Bill Wilson, who first noticed an important element missing from the painting. There was no flagpole on top of the Yea Shire Hall. Daryl had purchased the painting ... and asked Lyle if he could add it to the artwork. He did ... and Version 2 hangs at Daryl’s home in Yea.

Follow the money

Health goes ahead. Yea is said to be one of the wealthiest hospitals in Victoria, with reserves in the order of $4 million. One local farm identity tells us that Theo and Lucy Guymer left the proceeds of the £400.000 sale of their farm to the Yea Hospital in the 1960s. He says there would never have any intention that the gift would, in whole or in part, find its way to Seymour.

● Lyle Dayman, artist dents to attend a forum to discuss local crime on Thursday September 14 at Woori Yallock. "Crime has risen 18 per ecnt under Daniel Andrews. People are concerned for their safety.” Guest speakers will include Shadow Attorney General, John Pesutto, and Shadow Minister for Corrections, Police and Community Safety, Edward O'Donohue. The forum will run from 6pm to 8pm at the Heritage Chapel, 1414 Healesville-Koo Wee Rup Rd, Woori Yallock.

Latest numbers

■ We were asked a question at the Yea Golf Course on Saturday about latest Census figures. The Yea area population in the 2016 Census is 1587, with the median age being 52. Median weekly household income is $920 amongst the 419 families. Average monthly mortgage is $1300.

Byline mania ■ They must be teaching a new form of journalism ethics at university. One L-plater scribe is claiming part-authorship of Murrindindi Shire Council publicity hand-outs. Hopelessly hungry for a byline if you need to hammer your own name on months-old Shire news.

Pioneering days at Alexandra

Horse trail plan ■ Tess Sampson and Gwenda Mann gave notice that they were to set up a trail riding and overnight accommodation enterprise in Eucalyptus Rd, Kinglake. “Kinglake is somewhat a forgotten partt of the world,” the women told Yea Council. “Most people do not even know eher it is. And yet the National Park is superb.”

Helped at Alex. ■ St Luke’s Anglican Church Rector Fr Peter Williams received front-page recognition in the Alexandra and Eildon Standard for his role in that town’s High School performances of Oliver.

Farewell function

■ Yea Shire President Cr David Lawson hosted a special afternoon tgea farewell to Sgt Ray Sheather and Mrs Barbara Sheather at the Yea Council Chambers. “Yea will miss you and you won’t be forgotten,” said Cr Lawson, who presented the couple with an inscribed silver ice bucket.

Strategy plan

■ Yea Shire’s Chief Executive Officer Peter Mangan announced that he wanted to prepare a strategy plan, ‘Towards 2010’. Medium-term priorities included administration, promotion and development, goals and onjectives,communication and public relations.

Norma wins

■ “Less than a week after her birthday, Mrs K. Hoare, of Raglan St, Yea, was the KDFL lucky gate prize wi9nner on Sunday. Mrs Hoare attended the Lancaster v Yea games.”

New inspector

■ Bert Henkler of Raglan St, Yea, was appointed as Yea’s own part-time traffic inspector. “Three hours’ attention a week is expected to be given to parking problems particularly in the High St, Yea area.”

Council house sale

■ Settlement for Yea Shire’s property at 18 The Parade, Yea, was expected to take place. An offer of $42,500 was received from D.M. Phair and S.A. Hedley to purchase the property.

Oops, wrong area

■ Yea Shire discovered that it was considering a planning matter that was not even within its boundaries. Keith Gibson, of Main Rd, Kinglake, applied for a secondhand dealer’s licence. Planning Officer John Verryt suggested that the Shire of Eltham be informed of the appliaction.

Race Club poll

● Believed to be the earliest photo of The Red House at Alexandra. c1870-80. The Alexandra Community Pharmacy stands on the site today.

■ Peter Provis was re-elected as President of the Yea Racing Club. Re-elected were secretary Max Baynes, assistant secretary Ron Cygnet, Senior Vice-President Pat Quinlan and Junior Vice-President Lyle Nicholson. Treasurer was Noel Searle-Walker.

The L ocal Paper - Wednesday, September 6, 2017 - Page 9

Council rejects NE Link options ■ Nillumbik Shire Councillors last week voted to call on the State Government to dump pursuing two North East Link corridor options. North East Link unveiled four corridor options linking the Metropolitan Ring Road and the Eastern Freeway. Mayor Cr Peter Clarke said removing Corridor C and D from discussions would protect the Shire’s Green Wedge from environmental impacts .

“The council certainly supports the North East Link project which will mean residents will spend less time on the road and more time with their families,” Cr Clarke said. “Council is advocating for building Corridor A which is approximately half the cost of other options and would not destroy the Green Wedge. “Corridor A is the clear choice which is consistent with community feedback,” he said.

Police News

Jack Russell appeal heard County Court Wangaratta ■ John Paton Russell, 79, of Francis St, Yea, last week had his County Court appeal heard against convictions imposed last year at Seymour by Magistrate Stella Stuthridge. Ms Stuthridge had found that Russell had unlawfully assaulted Murrindindi Shire employee KerryTull at the Yea Library in April 2016, after Mr Russell had been banned from those premises by Council CEO Margaret Abbey. Ms Stuthridge imposed fines and costs aggregating $3500 against Mr Russell, with conviction. Judge Gerard Mullaly, sitting at Wangaratta, found the matters proven, removed the convictions, applied a $500 fine plus $1514 costs.

Death of 3DB radio legend Don Kinsey

● Don Kinsey as 3DB program manager in 1973 ■ We lost a good man and friend last week. Don Kinsey, 86, of Eltham, died after a public life as a broadcaster, mentor to many, and a community servant. Don passed away on Tuesday last week (Aug. 29) after a recent encounter with prostate cancer. For me, the timing was a shock. He and I had spoken by phone only five days earlier, and Don was bravely staring down his illness. Don Kinsey started his professional life as a mechanical engineer, leaving in 1956 to pursue a career in radio. Don's decision would lead him to be appointed a Member (AM) of the Order of Australia in 2008 for service to the community through public speaking programs and a range of executive roles with charitable, child health care and educational organisations. Don was a broadcaster and senior executive at the former Radio 3DB in Melbourne for 20 years and a relieving newsreader with HSV Channel 7. A further period of 20 years from 1976 he spent as Director of Public Affairs at Melbourne's Royal Children's Hospital and prior to his alleged retirement in 1996, he enjoyed his role as the 'voice and face' of the hospital. During his early years, Don was awarded a Conservatorium scholarship and studied voice production and singing. He founded 'Communicators Melbourne' in 1972, providing courses in effective speaking and business presentation. Don was Chief Commentator at the Royal Melbourne Show for many years.

What The Papers Say Nagambie netball

■ Nagambie ended its home and away season with a disciplined 68-goal demolition of Longwood. With the win the Lakers cemented top spot on the ladder as Sharni Lloyd celebrated her 250th game in style. It’s probably not an ideal preparation for the Lakers as they head into this year’s finals series, but Nagambie coach Abby Misiti was pleased with the way her side responded to their own challenges. ‘‘One of our goals was to keep them to a really low margin,’’ Misiti said. ‘‘The girls worked really hard defensively, not just in the goal circle but all over. Our attackers were defending down the court as well.’’ - Seymour Telegraph

Flu at fever pitch

■ Flu and respiratory cases have spiked in Mansfield, consistent with a febrile flu season across the state. Mansfield District Hospital has experienced double its admissions caused by the flu this year as compared to 2016, while confirmed presentations of the flu and RSVs (respiratory viruses) have risen by 65 per cent in the Hume region as a whole. Mansfield District Hospital said it has also experienced a spike in urgent care presentations. “There’s certainly been an increased prevalence of respiratory infection and influenza A, and there’s been an increase in the numbers in urgent care,” said Mansfield District Hospital chief executive officer, Cameron Butler. - Mansfield Courier

Drinks on the deck

■ Drinks On The Deck will be held at 6.30pm this Friday (Sept. 8) at Highlands Community Hall “Bring food to share for a meal together and catch up with friends old and new. All welcome, especially new faces. Gold coin donation to cover power.” - Granite News

Airing complaints

■ As Yarra Ranges Council calls for feedback on a review of the Open Air Burning Law there is also the opportunity for residents to have a say on existing local laws covering what residents, and visitors, can, can’t and shouldn’t do. The council’s health and local laws executive officer Peter Wright said the review was triggered by the looming expiry of the Open Air Burning Law (2008). It’s the last law to be reviewed as part of the council’s overall review of local laws that cover topics as diverse as a crowing roosters and roadside trading to nature strips, scare guns, caravans, abandoned vehicles, and more. - Mountain Views Mail

Old Paradians

■ Old Paradians held on for a gripping three-point win over Melbourne High School Old Boys on Sunday to secure a VAFA Division 2 preliminary final spot. The Raiders defended grimly in the last quarter of their semi-final at Trevor Barker Oval after leading by 29 points at three-quarter-time. Led by Kane Smith, who booted four of the game’s 13 majors, MHSOB drew within four points and had a chance to win the game with a minute on the clock. - Whittlesea Leader

Local History

Loan taken for pump at Yea River ■ With the estimates in preparation for the year 1883-84, Seymour was asked “if they will co-operate with Yea in erecting a bridge at Ghin Ghin”. The indication was that they were not, and the Parish of Ghin Ghin was ceded to Yea in November, 1883. The railway contract from Tallarook to Yea having been completed except for incidentals and the handover date some time away the Council was prompted to write to the contractors, Messrs C. & E. Miller, and ask “if they would have any objections to convey passengers and goods say two or three days a week and from Yea until the Railway is handed over to the Government.” The line was finally opened in November, 1883, and again a sumptuous banquet was afforded all interested at one guinea per double. The Council’s interests were not only parochial, but international when they urged the Government that a “speedy annexation of the South Sea Islands, New Guinea and the New Hebrides would be a great boon to the colony and Australia generally”. Six lamps had been placed around the town, prior to the opening of the railway, and applications were called from “persons willing to undertake the charge of trimming lamps in streets, also acting as Hall-keeper at entertainments”. The Bank of Victoria having lately closed its brach at Yea, it was decided to send a deputation to wait on the National Bank of Australia with a view to their establishing a branch in Yea, as an enticement they were to be offered the Shire account. A further move was made at this time to purchase the former Molesworth punt, which had been shifted to Alexandra. The owner offered it to the Council at £25 but he would not shift it. It was decided to purchase the punt “if he (the owner, Mr Geo. Payne) raises it in order to have it inspected by the Engineer”. The previously unheard of thought of going to Melbourne and returning in the one day was being pressed on the Railway Commissioners as being promised “by Mr Speight, when the Commissioners visited us”. The Commissioners were also approached with a view to having the water laid on to the town from the railway tank. A reply to the effect that they “do not feel justified in complying with the application to have water laid on from the Railway Track for the use of the inhabitants of Yea”. Resolution 14 of the June 1884 meeting of the Council read “letters addressed to the President, Shire of Yea (are) taken away from the Post Office and (he) brings them to the meeting when it suits him”, and that the President be censured for such an action. At the next meeting of the Council the minutes were read up to Clause 14 and the President refused to let the minutes be read any further, the meeting then was disbanded but reassembled, but again the President refused to let the minutes to be read past Clause 13. A minute that minutes be confirmed up to Resolution 13 aws adopted and the meeting proceeded. The absence of the President from the next meeting allowed the matter to be put in order.

Meanwhile, a Yea boy, Duncan McLeish, had distinguished himself as leader of the first contingent of Mounted Rifles to leave Australia for the Boer War and had returned promoted to the rank of Colonel. Colonel McLeish had been placed in charge of the escort to the Royal visitors, the Duke and Duchess of York, who on their visit to Australia were to inaugurate the first Parliament. It was no doubt a proud day for Colonel McLeish and did the Shire great honour. He was later appointed as Honorary A.C.C. to King George V. Duncan McLeish also gave service during during World War I and was further decorated with a C.M.G. and a G.B.E. Of the few public names that appear as having called to greater service in the Shire Minute Book, none could possibly have a more distinguished career. Yet another person distinguished himself, this time in the service of the service of the Shire Council. W.H. Fynn was appointed as Shire Secretary in 1901 and resigned due to ill-health in 1919. The fire of 1901 was closely followed by a State-wide drought in 1902 and a little more than half the ● E.S. Purcell

the usual rainfall. Still the hard times were not yet over and they were to continue intermittently till almost 1916. The Shire entered the 1900s economically sound, in fact with loans totalling £440, but by 1910 the hardship of the pastoralists was transferred to the Council. The rabbit had also been burrowing throughout the Shire for the previous two decades but it was reaching plague proportions and competing with the stock for what feed was available. The Wire Netting Act of 1908 enabled the Council to purchase netting on credit for the farmer to suffice his requirements. The Act was not however compulsory. The drought must have affected the operationsof the Mansfield and Bonnie Doon butter factories to such an extent that they were taken over by the Yea Company in 1908 and 1909 respectively. The Sacred Heart Catholic Church was opened for public worship in 1902 and amongst the dignatries present was the Shire President, Cr John Quinlan. Previous to this St Luke’s Church of England had been opened for public worship in 1868. 1904 was the best year that the new century had experienced, the Shire population had fallen back to 2629. The Yea Dairy Co. experienced a good year having purchased two million pounds of milk during the year for the sum of £27,222. Ocean freight and commission on its better exports exceeded £2800. With turnover at £38,678 and a profit of £721/11/- a dividend of 10 per cent was declared. A further cession of land on May 15, 1907, from Seymour to the Yea Shire lifted its area to 634 square miles. The Shire’s loan fund had been increased to £1050 with no major works having being undertakenin the intermediate years between 1901. The years of 1907-08 came on dry and we find the Council discussing the restocking of dairy farms “after recent drought”. Tourism was becoming a popular theme song of local progress associations and with the advent of the motor car, roads in fair condition were apt to attract prospective tourists. One such request to the Council brought the reply that no further money was available out of this year’s grant “for improving roads for tourist traffic”. In an effort to obtain money for expenditure on road works, the Council applied for a grant under the Closer Settlement Act. A public meeting called in connection with the Wire Netting Act resulted in applications for some eight miles of netting. The rabbits having reached such large proportions that the Engineer was instructed to have the “Yea Public Park poisoned for rabbits”. Rabbits were not the only problem, so were the weeds. The inspector reported that there was “a patch of onion grass growing in the Kerrisdale State School reserve” The Secretary was to make inquiries and see if the Board of Advice “would have the weed dug out”.

Local History Until this stage, Yea had no form of hospital whatsoever, but with Sister Drysdale, who established the ‘Rossmoor Private Hospital’ in 1910 the problem was alleviated. The first item of substantial road plant was purchased in 1910, that being an Austin steel reversible road grading machine, which was pulled by a teamof horses, with good results. A joint meeting between the YeaMansfield Dairy Co. and the Shire to discuss the possibility of having electricity, for street lighting and for the water pumping station, supplied from the recently rebuilt Butter Factory in late 1910, resulted in an unsatisfactory decision and negotiations broke down. A confident Council applied for a Government Grant for the supply and erection of a “five head battery to be reected in Yea for the use of prospectors”, but was rebuffed. The Council still found time to deliberate on current affairs and this time its attentioon was turned to the proposed Federal capital, Canberra. Council decided that “the YassCanberra site is totally unsuitable” and an endeavour to have matter of Federal Capital site reopened”, be made. The disposal of refuse from houses was placed before the Council by the local Progreess Association causing the Council to advertise for a sanitary collector at a rate of £20. The war clouds were gathering over Europe with the year 1911 and an application from the Yea Troop of the 7th Australian Light Horse, for permission to use the park for mounted parades received an approving vote. A rather unusual letter was received from the Secretary of the Yea Athletic Club stating “that he was about to be prosecuted for allowing the Shire Hall to be overcrowded on the occasion of the Caledonian Sports Night concert” was “received”. A further letter “that owing to a shipping strike in England the manufacture of Pentridge netting had been delayed”. Old timers coined a phrase “that it was made in to stand out” and always specified the Pentridge brand. The Commonwealth Banking Bill of 1912 drew the following protest from the Shire stating that “this Council hereby expresses its strong objection to that portion ... which provides for the establishment of Savings Banks as it considers that such a proposal is unnecessary and will prove detrimental to the best interests of the State and the country”. A Victorian Railways Tourist Officer was to visit the district with a view to issuing Mountainous district tickets for special train journeys to the area. The Progress Association always were capable of supplying suitable suggestion for the progress of the area and the welfare of its citizens. A few of the items to assist with tourism were the planting of trees on the east and west approaches of the town, the placing of sign posts around the town, opening of a road to the picturesque Wilhelmena Falls and the establishment of public abattoirs, and advising that “goats and sheep could and get into the Triange garden” situated in the Circuit. A reminder of the days of hard work are the allocation of only four days of public holidays per year, they being: New Year’s, Good Friday, Easter Monday and Christmas Day. The Yea Bowling Club green was completed for the 1913-14 bowling season and the Club invited Council

to play a match at its opening. A novel way of granting a salary was the appointment of a clerical assistant for the Secretary at “15 pence in the £”. Shots being fired in Europe and the calendar turned on to August 4, 1914, indicated that World War I was declared and the year 1914 further indicated that Yea was in the grip of the driest winter in history. A month after war had been declared a letter was received from the Assistant Adjutant-General of the 3rd Military District, calling for the Commonwealth Military (Expeditionary) Force, was to be acted upon. Making a £50 grant to the Patriotic Fund, the Council then struck a general rate of 15 pence in the pund for the year 1914-15. The 1914 drought had loosened its hold on the community and good general rains in 1915 allowed many farmers to plant crops. A letter received from the Country Roads Board suggested “holding over all major works till after the harvest” allowing all the manpower available to participate. Portions of High and Station Sts were tarred at the beginning of December 1915, in the hope of eliminating the dust menace. It doesn’t rain, but it pours and by November 1916 there was flooding throughout the Shire, with an estimated £760 damage to roads and permanent works. Letters were forwarded to the next of kin for any former resident’s distinguished action in the field or having been killed in action, offering congratulations or condolences as the circumstances required. Such was the case when Lieutenant Rupert Ker was awarded the French Military Cross. The Shire expected instant eradication of the thistle menace with the resolution “all noxious thistles within the Shire of Yea must be eradicated at once”. The drought year of 1914 had attracted large numbers of crows but now with the feed gone they caused the Council to call a public meeting to see ways for their destruction. A further instalment of £1000 was required on the current overdraft of £4400 until the estimated revenue of £2743 was received from the 15 pence in the pound general rate. A number of diptheria cases discovered in the township caused the Council to pass a by-law disallowing pigs being kept within town limits and that “Mrs T. be informed re keeping of pigs on her premises that according to the Health Officers’s report the Act has not been complied with and the nuisance will have to be got rid of”. An extra rate of three pence in the pound was levied in January 197 “for the purpose of reducing the Council’s bank overdrafty”. Such a measure did not deter the Council from making a grant of two guineas to the Salvation Army Band, who had moved into their new citadel which they had constructed by voluntary labour, in Station St. An organised method of selling stock at the Council yards is of more than fleeting interest. The sale to commence at 1pm with 4 minutes per pen of 100 and over sheep; 3 minutes for lesser quantities of sheep; 4 minutes for 10 or more cattle; 3 minutes for under 10 head. A timekeeper was to receive 10 shillings per sale day from the agents. The third anniversary of the war the Council pledged “its inflexible determination to continue to a victorious end, the struggle in maintennace of those ideals of lib-

erty and justice which are the common and secred cause of the allies”. The death of the Curator (of Gardens) Mr D. Rooney brought “unheard of” action from the Council which “places on record its highest appreciation of the loyal and enthusiastic services he rendered to the Shire of Yea in the care and able attention he bestowed on the Municipal Gardens, also that the funeral expenses and small debts incurred during his final illness and amounting to £13/ 18/6 be passed for payment”. A most fitting tribute to whatr must have been a most faithful member of the outdoor staff. “The Little Digger” Billy Hughes’ Reinforcements Referendum literature came before the Council, the vote should be (Yes) and it was moved that hoardings with “(Yes)” were to be erected. A swift amendment “providing, however, that there was equal space for ‘No’ placards The mover and the seconder happened to be of Irish stock. Cr Coonan made an application for the Shire Hall for the purpose of a lecture to be given by Mrs Walsh, the daughter of Mrs Emeline Pankhurst of Suffragette fame, the application was refused. Cr Coonan claimed that “the refusal was political partianship which was contrary to the spirit of local government”. The suspension of all day work for six months and the discussion of possibility the necessity of levying an extra rate meant that the Council was still in an embarrassing financial position. The levying of an extra rate, on the north and west ridings of six pence in the pound, in May 1918, should have helped considerably in reducing the overdraft. The allotment of £800 for the renovation of the Shire Hall was to be invested in war bonds. The Killingworth Estate was a certain target for use as Soldier Settlement Scheme and a Council resolution “that the owners of Killingworth Estate be written to and asked if they would place the estate under offer of sale, for the settlement of discharged servicemen thereon” and also that persons having suitable land for sale or for share farming be requested to send particulars to the Shire Secretary. The Council in doing its part was allowing returned servicemen free agistment for one cow in the Park. A general rate of 18 pence in the pound was levied throughout the Shire for the forthcoming 1918-19 year. On November 11, 1918, the resignation was received from Mr W.H. Fynn, from his position of Shire Secretary, due to ill health.

Peace and Depression ■ The war was over, but the task of repatriating all the ex-servicemen was only just beginning. A Government grant of £750 was made to the Shire for the employment of returned servicemen. All Councillors were asked to combine with local Committee for the Peace celebrations. The Council later commented “the excellent work done by the Welcome Home Committee in welcoming our soldiers”. An extra rate of six pence in the central and north, nine pence in the west and three pence in the south was struck in May, 1919. To be continued in the next issue of The Local Paper

The Rossmoor Hospital story

● The former Rossmoor Hospital in Raglan St, Yea. Photo: Murrindindi Shire Heritage Study ■ The Murrindindi Shire Heritage Study discusses the early days of Rossmoor Private Hospital. “The township of Yea prospered throughout the 1870s and 1880s, however, the local council was unable to attract a doctor to live permanently in the town. “Resident dissatisfaction reached a peak in 1882, and, although Council was willing to guarantee a minimum income of £150 per annum for any qualified doctor prepared to reside in the town, residents had to make do with weekly visit from doctors from Alexandra or Seymour. “It was not until September 1884 that a Dr Lock took up residence in the township. However, a local hospital was not established in Yea for another 20 years. “Rossmoor Private Hospital was established in 1904 by Sister Mary Stewart Drysdale, daughter of William Drysdale and Mary Waters Downie. Details of the architect or builder of the Raglan St property are not known. “The first notice advertising the new private hospital appeared in The Yea Chronicle on May 5, 1904. Miss Drysdale advertised that 'Rossmoor' was a 'medical, surgical, maternity' private hospital. “An editorial in the same newspaper pointed to the fact that the hospital was located on the slope of the hill, was well built up and commanded an extensive view of the country 'and of that scenery for which Yea is so justly noted.' “The writer also noted the fact that the entrance door opened outwards instead of inwards as is usual in a dwelling house. This was in accordance with the Board of Public Health in regard to private hospitals. “A lengthy description of the building draws attention to the spacious hall, and the operating theatre 'fitted with all the appurtenances necessary for the surgeon', highlighting a skylight with a southerly aspect for 'the best light to be obtained'. “Miss Drysdale sold the hospital and the building in 1914 to Sister Jayes who had 15 years of experience, in Melbourne and Kerang, at the time of purchase. She retained it during the First World War and the 1919 Spanish Influenza Pandemic. “A tent hospital was established, via the Board of Health, at Rossmoor Hospital, which gave the local authorities greater involvement in and control over the types of treatment given at the hospital. That is, the hospital broadened from medical, surgical and maternity to include infectious diseases. “Isolation wards were trialled at this hospital to deal with the increasing problem of outbreaks of diphtheria and typhoid, caused by poor sanitation in the town. “May 1927 saw a further change of management, when Sister Jayes sold the business to Sister Slade quickly who incorporated electric heating at the private hospital. Renovations appear to have been overdue, as the Health Committee of the Board of Health recommended the construction and installation of two stores, one bath, one bath heater and a new room with bathing facilities. “Sister Slade's stay was brief, for in June 1928, ownership changed again and Sister Jessie and Mr Angus McKenzie took over Rossmoor. “Public pressure began to agitate for the building of a bush nursing centre, with trained nurses, in Yea, in 1928. Rossmoor argued against the need for a bush nursing centre which would mean they would have to close their midwifery section. After 24 successful years and stable management, in October 1928, tragedy struck Rossmoor Private Hospital. On October 18, 1928, Olive Drysdale, the sister of the first owner, Sister Mary Drysdale, died of septicaemia. The following day, another patient was transferred to Melbourne hospital with the same symptoms of septicaemia. She died three days later. “Letters to The Yea Chronicle by the McKenzies in December 1928, assured the residents of Yea that the hospital had been fumigated and was free from infection and that patients could be admitted. Even so, Rossmoor did not recover from this tragedy. “Another private hospital, Fernleigh, established in 1906 by Dr Wilkinson, one of the three doctors then practising in Yea, proved too competitive, or its owner, Dr Wilkinson, too persuasive. “Rossmoor ceased operation in October 1932. Notices in The Yea Chronicle in January and February 1933 advertised a clearance sale for the site. “Following the closure of the private hospital, the building became a private residence. It was first purchased by Mrs McLeod, who resided there until the early 1960s. It then passed of P.D. Quinlan and served as the family home until about 1965, after which it was rented out until 1989. During the Quinlans' residence, a skillion verandah was added to the rear elevation. The rear part of the site was levelled and the isolation wards, detached kitchen, amenities and washhouse that stood behind the former hospital were all demolished.”

Stateside with Gavin Wood in West Hollywood

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

How did Apple start? ■ Apple was founded as a partnership on April Fool's Day 1976 by three people who originally worked at Atari: Steven Gary Wozniak (1950- ), Steven Paul Jobs (1955-2011), and Ronald Gerald Wayne (1934- ). Apple was incorporated on January 3, 1977, without Wayne, who sold his shares back for $800. Wayne wrote the Apple I manual, drafted the partnership agreement, and drew the first Apple logo. You have to feel for Ronald Wayne who wasn't the visionary like his two partners.

Wine flows in W. Hollywood ■ Great wines from the Blue Pyrenees Estate at Mt Avoca were flowing at the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Suites in West Hollywood, celebrating a significant birthday for Peter Whitfield, Director of Blue Pyrenees Estate. All the September birthday boys together, pictured with Peter are Alan Johnson, Managing Director of Hoteliers International Corporation Australia, Global Hoteliers, and former Consul from the Australian Consulate General in Los Angeles now with Coldwell Banker Real Estate , Ian Hand. Remy Martin established Blue Pyrenees, then called Chateau Remy in Western Victoria in 1963. Remy Martin was committed to discovering the superb sparkling wine potential of the world’s cool climate wine regions and in fact subsequently became the force behind Champagne Houses Krug and Charles Heidsieck. Blue Pyrenees Estate was among the modern Australian wine industry's first ventures into cool climate viticulture. Ample amounts of sunshine ensure the grapes ripen to full maturity with the heat moderated by altitude vineyards and southerly ocean winds. The climate is warm enough to give concentration and power, yet cool enough to give vibrancy and elegance, resulting in remarkable wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

US household debt soars ■ US household debt reached a new record of $12.8 trillion in the second quarter, driven by rising mortgage debt, a strong quarter for auto loan originations, and an uptick in credit-card balances, which reached their highest level since 2009. The report marked the 12th consecutive quarterly increase in household debt, as Americans continue to re-embrace credit as the financial crisis recedes into memory. The total volume of debt is now $1.7 trillion higher than it was in 2013, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York's quarterly report on household debt and credit. While overall debt has increased, the figures aren't adjusted for the growth of the population or the economy. Total debt was 67 per cent of the nominal gross domestic product in the second quarter, down from as high as 87 per centin 2009.

Why Oprah didn’t marry ■ After 31 years together, Oprah Winfrey and boyfriend Stedman Graham have no intentions of getting married. However, the 63-year-old star wants people to know that they are both perfectly content with that fact. Speaking in the upcoming September issue of Vogue, the former talk show host was asked what being in a long term relationship, but not ever getting married, taught her about women in our society. "Live life on your own terms," she responded. Winfrey went on to explain that the topic of marriage never really came up between her and Graham. The only time it did was when she asked him what would have happened if they'd ever actually got married. "We wouldn't be together," he responded.

■ Hurricane Harvey, the remnants of which continues to wreak havoc in Texas and made landfall in Louisiana, is expected to be the costliest natural disaster in US history, a veteran weather expert said. "This will be the worst natural disaster in American history. The economy's impact, by the time its total destruction is completed, will approach $160 billion, which is similar to the combined effect of Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy," said Joel Myers, president of forecasting company AccuWeather. Myers said the staggering figure represents 0.08 percent of the gross national product, or GDP, which is $19 trillion. "Business leaders and the Federal Reserve, major banks, insurance companies, etc. should begin to factor in the negative impact this catastrophe will have on business, corporate earnings and employment," said Myers.

Facts about Coca-Cola ■ Though US pharmacist John S. Pemberton invented CocaCola in 1886, his bookkeeper, Frank Robinson invented the name. Robinson had beautiful handwriting, and his flowering script is still used today. ■ Coca-Cola was first marketed as a nerve tonic that "relieves exhaustion." ■ The very first Coca-Cola products contained cocaine, about 9 milligrams per glass. It was removed from the drink in 1903. The original Coke was also alcoholic. ■ Coca-Cola is the most widely distributed product on the planet. Coca-Cola was officially launched in 1886, making it 130 years old.

O.J. Simpson prepares ■ The wheels are in motion for O.J. Simpson's upcoming release from prison. An insider says that Simpson, 70, will take mandatory prerelease classes either at his current prison in Nevada or at a stepdown facility within the state. "They are as simple as learning how to balance a cheque book," the source said of the classes. "Some of the classes don't apply to him, some do. There are no pay phones anymore. “Here's how to get a phone if you don't have credit. You don't have much credit when you've been gone for nine years. “They are mandatory and if you don't complete them you don't get released." Simpson, who was granted parole in July after serving nine years on an armed robbery conviction, will also give a DNA sample before exiting.

■ Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers really has moved on from his former long-time girlfriend, actress Olivia Munn. Rodgers was spotted on a date with soccer player Marie Margolius at the Martignetti brothers' Upper East Side celebrity haunt, the East Pole, on Sunday night. They arrived at around 10pm and seemed to be on a date. He wore a baseball cap and asked for the quietest, most out-of-theway table possible. His hat was tilted down. It definitely seemed like he wanted to be incognito. ■ Leonardo DiCaprio, who normally has a thing for blond models under 25, has been spending more time with 23-yearold brunette model Lorena Rae. The Great Gatsby actor was seen with Rae and a male pal having lunch at Hillstone on Park Avenue in NYC, where, a spy tells us, "they seem like an item," and, "they walked out together, he pulled down his hat over his eyes." ■ Cuba Gooding Jr. doing shots of Jägermeister with the bartender at Delilah on the Lower East Side in NYC. ■ Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick dining with friends at Nick and Toni's in East Hampton. ■ Mariah Carey was seen at the new LA luxury apartment building Ten Thousand.

Cast: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford, Catherine Keener. Year: 2017. Rating: MA15+ Length: 104 Minutes. Stars: **** Verdict: Ripping thriller of a young African-American who visits his white girlfriend's family estate where he slowly learns of a mysterious past and horrible truth, and when he decides to "get out," he finds it easier said than done. Startling directorial debut from comedian Jordan Peele, who also wrote and co-produced, starts this chilling journey with delectably disturbing menace (to Run Rabbit Run), and slowly building it's unsettling twists, turns and increasingly gripping tension to a sharp and nail-biting conclusion. The blend of real world paranoia, anxieties, racial undertones and humour turn into a world of nightmares with startling effect. Superbly paced, beautifully filmed and driven by a highly intelligent, fresh and thought provoking screenplay with standout performances, this is top notch nail-biting horror-thriller that the likes of Roman Polanski, John Carpenter and David Cronenberg, among others, would have relished and ultimately created at their peak. FILM: McLAREN: Genre: Documentary/Biography/Action/Drama. Cast: Bruce McLaren, Mario Andretti, Jackie Stewart, Jack Brabham. Year: 2017. Rating: M. Length: 92 Minutes.

A man who showed the world that a man of humble beginnings could take on the elite of motor racing and win. In 2005 filmmaker Roger Donaldson paid homage to the achievements of New Zealand biker Burt Munro with the superb and acclaimed "The World's Fastest Indian" starring Anthony Hopkins. This time Roger Donaldson, the director of such films as "Sleeping Dogs," "The Bounty," "No Way Out," "Cocktail," "Dante's Peak" and "Thirteen Days" turns his sights in the form of a documentary on pioneering New Zealand racing legend, Bruce McLaren. Spoken by those who knew him best, along with a wealth of archival footage, this feature length documentary takes us through his all-too-short life from his humble beginnings in childhood battle with immobilising Legg-Perthes Disease, his early years in racing, to his triumphs in Formula One, the Indianapolis 500, the gruelling LeMans, legendary and groundbreaking racing car designs to his untimely death at the age of 32. Exhilarating, compelling, poignant, respectful and simply straight forward in approach, Roger Donaldson has created a fitting tribute to one of the greatest, most respected and most loved figures in the history of motor racing ... and like me, you don't have to be a petrol-head to be gripped by this extraordinary man and his story. FILM: THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS: Genre: Action/Crime/Thriller. Cast: Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Charlize Theron, Kurt Russell, Luke Evans, Tyrese Gibson - Helen Mirren (as the mother of Jason Statham's character Deckard). Details: 2017. Rating: M. Length: 136 Minutes. Stars: *** Verdict: Dom (Diesel) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) are on their honeymoon, but when a mysterious woman convinces him with an offer involving betrayal of those closest to him, the old gang is rounded up yet again, including some former enemies, to get him back. Just when you think you've seen it all through the previous outings from the "Fast and the Furious" team, they're back with even more, much more! More action, more car chases, more chaos, and surprisingly, more humour and lighter than other efforts, as they crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world's stage. No Oscar acting honours here, it know exactly where it's going and exactly who to target, this is totally illogical 'escapist' entertainment that packs a punch! The cast all seem to be having great fun, including Helen Mirren in a brief appearance as the mother of Jason Statham's character Deckard, and even though the ego's of Diesel and Johnson reportedly clashed throughout. The engaging characters we've come to know over that past 16 years years again make this a big, dumb, macho, ridiculously illogical, highly enjoyable eye-popping fast and furious pedal to the metal thrill ride that doesn't fail to deliver. How are they going to top this one!

■ For me, there is only one James Bond and that is Sean Connery. I have just watched Goldfinger and I remember seeing it at a drive in back in 1965. Sean was the best actor to play James Bond by far and he was such a cool handsome man. Thomas Sean Connery was born in Fountainbridge, Edinburgh, in 1930 to a working class family. His brother Neil also became an actor. Sean was a small boy at school but "shot up" from the age of 12 to be 6’2”. He worked at a variety of jobs as a teenager before enlisting in the navy and served for three years. As a result of an interest in body building Sean entered the local Mr Universe contest in 1950 and achieved third place. This led to modelling jobs and a role in the chorus of the stage musical South Pacific. Sean became interested in dramatic acting and was cast in professional stage plays. He played the lead role in the BBC television production of Requiem for a Heavyweight. In 1959 Sean was cast in the title role in the Walt Disney film Darby O'Gill and the Little People. I met and interviewed the late Diane Cilento who was married to Sean from 1962 till 1973. Sean and Diane discussed if he should accept the role of James Bond in Dr No. Diane told me that Sean had to be trained in matters of

etiquette and taught how to behave in a sophisticated manner. Diane also suggested that they should add the humour for James Bond and as a result the script featured those famous one liners. Sean also took dancing lessons from the Swedish dancer Yat Malmgren for 11 years. Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, was not happy when Sean was chosen to play his famous character but became a huge fan when he saw him onscreen in Dr No. Diane and Sean had one son Jason Connery who also became an actor. Dr No was the first in the series of Bond films and was a fantastic success at the box office.

Sean was in five more Bond films: From Russia with Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice and Diamonds Are Forever. Sean was a good business man and negotiated a percentage of the profits from each of his Bond films. As the years went by he became tired of playing James Bond and wanted to play other roles in films. My favourite Sean Connery films include, The Man Who Would Be King in 1975 when he teamed with his old friend Michael Caine; In the Name of the Rose (for which he won a BAFTA award); and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade playing the father of Harrison Ford. Sean donated his fee from the film Robin and Marian to charity. His other films included: Marnie, The Molly Maguires, The Wind and the Lion, The Hunt for Red October, Finding Forrester and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Sean won the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for The Untouchables in 1987. In 1975 Sean married his second wife Micheline Roquebrune and these days they live in Europe. Sean became a grandfather in 1997 when his son Jason and his ex-wife, actress Mia Sara, had a son, Dashiell Quinn Connery. There is an official Sean Connery website at www.seanconnery.com which is worth a look.

Sean was made a Knight Bachelor in the 2000 Queen's Millennium Honors List for his services to film drama. He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in an hour-long investiture ceremony at Edinburgh's Holyrood Palace in Scotland. His wife Micheline and his younger brother Neil were by his side. When Roger Moore passed away Sean made the following comment: "I was very sad to hear of Roger's passing We had an unusually long relationship, by Hollywood standards, that was filled with jokes and laughter. I will miss him." Roger Moore was my second favourite James Bond but Sean Connery was my absolute favourite. Only last week the presence of Sir Sean Connery was announced to the audience at the US Open in New York . He looked fantastic and as the James Bond theme boomed around the stadium, the proud Scot was given a standing ovation while watching the tennis tournament.

Jane Harper wins crime book awards ■ Melbourne author Jane Harper’s novel The Dry took out two awards for best crime books by women in the Sisters of Crime 17th Davitt Awards, winning Best Adult Novel and Readers’ Choice awards. It tops off a top award-winning run for Harper, a former Herald Sun journalist. The novel, which first won the 2015 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript, has gone on to scoop the 2017 Indie Award Book of the Year and the 2017 Australian Book Industry Awards Australian Book of the Year Award. Rights have been sold in 27 territories worldwide, and film rights optioned to US actor and producer Reese Witherspoon and her Australian co-producer Bruna Papandrea. Jacqui Horwood, the Davitt Judges’ wrangler, said, “The Dry is an atmospheric and claustrophobic read that explores the complexities of life in a rural community through the lens of a devastating crime. “The judges were impressed with Harper’s tight control of the narrative and her well-realised characters. A well-crafted and delivered crime novel.” Harper told the crowd,” No-one knows crime quite like the Sisters in Crime, so I’m thrilled that my novel has been singled out by such a discerning group. “The Dry has been embraced in a way I never could have imagined when I started writing it, and I’m so grateful to the Sisters in Crime for championing not only this novel but all crime writing by Australian women writers.” Hilary Bonney, a barrister, truecrime writer and television producer, presented the awards before a crowd of nearly 100. She talked first about her ‘life in crime’, with Professor Sue Turnbull, who was appointed Sisters in Crime’s ambassador at its 25th anniversary convention last year. The major sponsor for the 2017 Davitts was Swinburne University of Technology’s Dr Carolyn Beasley, the acting department chair of Media and Communication Department, who said: “For us, it’s a bit of a no brainer. As flagship members of a diversity organisation called Athena Swan,

‘Catch 22’ in Cups lead-up

Country Crossroads By Rob Foenander info@countrycrossroads com.au

Canyon in town ■ Acoustic folk outfit Canyon will perform at the Caravan Music Club on Friday, September 15. Their current self-titled eight-track LP features some impressive covers from music greats Neil Young and Joe Walsh amongst other legendary performers. However, their standout five original songs puts this band into a league of their own. Brilliant vocals and harmonies have to be heard to be believed.

Man in Black ■ Aussie music legend Tex Perkins returns to Melbourne with the Johnny Cash story, The Man In Black. The show has already won Tex and his crew a Helpmann Award for Best Contemporary Australian Concert . Tex's reverence for Johnny Cash's career is evident in the way he approaches every song. Melbourne audiences are certainly in for a treat says the media release. Athenaeum Theatre, Nov. 3 and 4.

Champs, Chess ■ A Facebook report suggests that Greg Champion and Johnny Chester have recorded a duet. Keep this old truck tickin will be available “at all good green grocers and it's currently number 83 with a walking stick”, says Greg's Facebook page. Must keep an ear out for this release. - Rob Foenander

■ Racing Victoria's Racing General Manager, Greg Carpenter, is attempting to entice Australia's top Melbourne Cup owner, Lloyd Williams, to bring his great stayer, Order of St.George, to compete in this year's Melbourne Cup. Williams has openly stated that if the horse gets 58 kilos weight or more he won't run . The popular owner, who has already won five Melbourne Cups, spends a fortune trying to get the right horse and has been using the overseas stage to do that in recent years. Carpenter will release the weights next week on Tuesday (Sept. 12), and my tip is that if Greg wants Order of St George to run he may give 57.5 kilos, although the topweight must carry 58 kilos. Then is the problem who gets topweight. Order of St George is a top class stayer having won the Ascot Gold Cup and the Irish St Leger is great style and without a doubt is one of the best stayers in the world today. Williams won the Cup last year with his seven- year-old stayer, Almandin, who returned to racing at Moonee Valley recently at his first start after the Cup and ran very well. His new rider, Ben Melham, let him race three wide in the race at the Valley over 2040 metres to give him a good hit out and he was most impressive. Although he has been nomi-

with Ted Ryan nated for this year's Melbourne Cup, he only carried 52 kilos last year and is likely to rise sharply in the weights to around 56 kilos. My tip is that Lloyd likes a challenge an if he gets a tick under 58 kilos will see Order of St George in action come Cup Day this year. As for Almandin, 56 kilos is not a real burden, but he is now eight years of age, and it's pretty tough going especially with an additional four kilos if he gets 56 kilos. In all 140 nominations were received for the Melbourne Cup worth $6.25 million to be run on the first Tuesday in November. This time next year the new stand and surroundings should be up and

Council bids farewell to Sharon Webb ■ When Sharon Webb, Murrindindi Shire Council's Development Services' Administration Officer, started her first job at the (then) Alexandra Shire Council in May 1981, her description of the workplace conjures images of the Mad Men offices, with smoke-filled rooms and cigarettes in half-filled ashtrays at the desks beside the typewriters. After 36 years with Council, Sharon holds the record of being the second longest-serving member of the Shire Council’s staff. After this marathon effort, Sharon has decided to call it a day - she finished her work with Council on Friday (Sept. 1) and will now go on to explore other adventures. Starting as a "Typiste" using an electric typewriter and answering the phones, she has seen Council's technology change significantly over the years. "One of the highlights of that period was going to buy our first computers with our Assistant Shire Secretary in the mid-late 80s. Until then electric typewriters were thought to be pretty special," Sharon said. "I have had time to think about what I have loved about my years with Council. “The strengths we enjoy here are definitely our staff, the new ideas they bring with them and the fact that the people who work here are community members too," she said. "I also love the fact that three of our ex-staff members are now Councillors - they understand

Call to control weeds ■ The first week of Spring has arrived, and at this time of year, it's crucial to ensure that residents try to reduce the spread of any weeds on localproperty, says Murrindindi Shire Council. The Shire’s Portfolio Councillor for Natural Environment and Climate Change, Rebecca Bowles, said weeds know no boundaries and that all responsible for ensuring we don't spread them. "When weeds do escape beyond our property boundaries, they become a landscape issue, which is why working with your neighbours and in groups is far more effective than battling them alone," Cr Bowles said. "Over the past few months, we've written about problem weeds such as Paterson's Curse, Capeweed and the South African weed orchid, but there are a lot of other offenders." Cr Bowles said there are many issues with weeds - and not just the fact that they compete with our native vegetation for space, water, nutrients and light. "Weeds also alter habitats and reduce food and shelter for our native plants and animals," she said. "Weeds like blackberry for example can form barriers and restrict access to areas, they create a financial burden and become time-consuming for property owners to try to control. “Chilean Needle Grass can irritate and injure stock and ruin a sheep's fleece, while St John's Wort can be toxic to stock. Flowering weeds are also often responsible for allergies including hayfever. "They can also invade our waterways, choking or diverting water courses, can increase fuel loads and heat generated from fires as well as decrease the land's amenity, value and productivity." Cr Bowles said weeds are spread in so many ways, whether via the wind, travelling in water through the stormwater drains, creeks or waterways, by animals (domestic, stock and wild), or via people and pets carrying seeds in hair, fur, or shoes from the garden or paddock tracking them into

ensure that growth and development is aligned with what the community values about the Shire. A particular achievement of which Sharon is most proud was her project to link the database which contains details of all the Shire's buildings with the rates database - something many residents wouldn't be aware of, but which has had a huge impact on Murrindindi Shire Council's work, ensuring the processes run smoothly. Murrindindi Shire Council's CEO Margaret Abbey said Sharon has made a significant contribution across the organisation over the years, but most importantly in her most recent role as part of the building team. "Sharon's loyalty to her team and the community is outstanding and she will be greatly missed," Ms Abbey said. "The farewells she has received from members of the building and construction industry are testament to her support and assistance to building applicants and those who have come to the Council counter. "Having made such a commitment to Council and the community, it's now time for Sharon to focus other goals she'd like to achieve in her life. “We thank her for her efforts and achievements over the last 36 years and wish her all the very best for the future," Ms Abbey said. - Supplied by Murrindindi Shire Council and published without payment

Jane wins rregional egional aaw war d ard

● Jane Thomas ■ Murrindindi Shire Council says it is proud to announce Family Day Care educator Jane Thomas has been named the Regional Winner of the Educator of the Year Award in the 'Excellence in Family Day Care Awards'. “This is more good news for Murrindindi Shire Council's Family Day Care Team, which has also been named as one of the finalists from Victoria and Tasmania competing for the Educator and Service of the YearAward against 149 other providers nationally,” said a media release issued by the Council on Monday (Sept. 4). The 2017 Family Day Care Australia Awards are being presented in October and because Jane is the regional winner (for the Yarra Valley and High Country), this award now puts her in the running for the State award. The Healesville-based educator has been working with Murrindindi Shire Council's Family Day Care Team since 2013 and also worked as an educator in the Shire more than 25 years ago when she lived between Narbethong and Buxton. Jane is not new to winning awards - she won the same regional award in 2013. But she said she was thrilled with the news. "I am still passionate about my job. The award gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling and you never really expect it," she said. "As a carer, I constantly ask myself if I'm doing a good enough job sure, I meet all the basic criteria, but am I doing it really well? "I guess in this case it's lovely to receive public recognition confirming that I am doing a good job. It's also a great thing for the Murrindindi Shire Council Team and it's great for Family Day Care as well." Like all of the Shire's Family Day Care educators, Jane meets National Education and Care Regulations by maintaining her qualifications in Level two first aid, Anaphylaxis, Asthma and CPR training. She also holds her Certificate III in Children's Services. Turn To Page 44

Shire News ● From Page 43 Jane said the general public's perception of Family Day Care is that children are being "babysat" in someone else's house, when in fact it was so much more than that. "Hopefully the 'baby-sitting' perception is changing to show what we provide as educators," she said. "To me it's a full-on program, but I love what I do - to me it doesn't feel like I'm working. I enjoy opening up the world to the children I look after." Jane lived ‘off-grid’ for 17 years before to moving to Healesville and one thing that still sets her care apart is her focus on sustainability and "growing". She has a large fruit and vegetable garden on her one-acre property which provides seasonal produce and is integral to the children's care. "We usually grow about 80 per cent of what we eat," Jane said. "We propagate, plant and watch the crop grow. Then we harvest and we eat it. It's about getting back to basics for children. "The beauty of involving the children in this type of program is they learn where their food comes from - they know the blossoms will turn into fruit rather than just finding their fruit and veggies in the supermarket." Jane said the children she looks after enjoy spending time outdoors and in the garden as well as going on walks through the paddocks to the bush. "The days usually run on the theme 'What shall we discover today?'" she said. "A normal day starts with free play in the morning until everyone's arrived, followed by morning tea - usually some fresh and dried fruit. "If the weather's okay we'll go outside, but if it's really awful, we might do some art instead. “When we go outside, the children usually choose the direction we head in - they might decide to climb trees or play in the sandpit and the day flows according to what they're doing. “We might then go for a walk into the bush or across the paddocks and they'll collect all sorts of things including flowers, rocks, seeds before returning home just before lunch. "Usually they'll have a bit of bicycle time along my porch while I prepare lunch and they'll then change their clothes, wash their hands and eat. “After lunch is sleep time and when they wake, they all tend to enjoy a bit of quiet oneon-one play at the table with toys. “In the summer the program also includes water play and mud painting outside." "Now we're more and more into the food growing, the bush, the flora and fauna, we can incorporate this into our calendars all the time. "Children notice the small details in life. It's a good lesson for us as adults - often there's so much happening we tend to miss the simple things." Murrindindi Shire Council's Community Services Portfolio Councillor, Sandice McAulay, said Family Day Care Australia is the industry's peak body and oversees 850 services around the country. Cr McAulay said she was tickled pink with the Award going to one of our educators and Council's Family Day Care Team's nomination as a finalist ahead of the gala event. "I know how hard our Family Day Care Services team has worked over the past five years to build a strong reputation as a high quality care provider," she said. "Their nomination as finalists attests to this and Jane's win also reflects everyone's dedication to their work."It's wonderful to see our passionate educators' hard work being recognised and Jane is the perfect example of the role they can play in our children's lives,” Cr McAulay said. - Supplied by Murrindindi Shire Council, published without payment

Local Environment

Yea Garden Expo focus on succulents

● Julian and Dominic Gruchy: succulents are safe for children to grow ■ Succulents have become extremely popular with gardeners. They are drought resistant plants in which the leaves, stems or roots have become more fleshy through the development of water storing tissue. For this reason they are ideally suited to a lot of Australian conditions, particularly dry areas and places with nutrient deficient soils. Succulents are easy to grow from cuttings which make them an economical proposition for someone establishing a new garden. They come in many attractive and some unusual forms, and their unique range of colours can provide an attractive and unusual garden display. Following many enquiries for succulents at last year's Yea Rotary Garden Expo, the committee this year has catered for succulent lovers in two ways. Attila Kapitany, author of books on succulants, and his wife Michelle, have established an amazing succulent garden on their property at Narre Warren. This was a difficult site which the Kapitanys have developed into a series of terraced rooms. They have planted stunning displays of succulents in waves of colour and different forms, ● Glenys Osborne prepares some and nearly all of the 10,000 plants in the garden succulents for the Garden Expo they have propagated themselves. Attila will be one of the featured speakers in able. Attila's book on succulents will be for sale the Expo speakers' program and his enthusi- at Wendy's stall. There will be more than 60 vendors of food asm and expertise will be available for other and all things garden related at the expo. enthusiasts to share. This will be held over the weekend of SepWendy Hall, from the Rotary Expo planning committee, a well-known local plant en- tember 23 and 24 at the Yea Racecourse and thusiast, is planning a succulent stall where a Golf Club. Entry is $5 and free for those under 16, and wide variety of bare rooted succulents will be parking is also free. Check out a list of vendors available for purchase. These are very suitable for local conditions and speakers on the website, www.yeagarden - Janet Hubbard and advice on their cultivation will also be avail- expo.com.au ■ Kinghlake scored a mention on ABC Radio’s Coodabeen Champions program on Saturday ... for not having a lake. The region was named after Alexander William Kinglake (August 5, 1809 – January 2, 1891) who was an English travel writer and historian. He was born near Taunton, Somerset and educated at Eton College and Trinity College, Cambridge. He abandoned a life in the legal profession in order to devote himself to literature and public life.

What’s On Treasured Memories ■ The Yea and District Historical Society is staging a major exhibition of their collection over the September 16-17 weekend of in theYea Shire Hall. The Society is confidant the local community will find the exhibition fascinating, whether you have grown up in the district or are a recent resident. The Yea History and Heritage Exhibition will be open from 10am to 4pm each day and an entry fee of $5 will be charged to cover costs of hall hire and advertising. The Exhibition will also include a stunning display of Val Borrie's renowned heritage Wedding Dress collection, Paul Bannan's amazing Australian Military History collection and memorabilia and part of Frank Philp's outstanding collection of 50's and 60's radios and gramophones. Not having a venue to permanently display the wonderful collection of Yea History collected by the Society over 17 years is a continuing problem. The society does stage small select exhibitions regularly so the community can experience the wonder of some of our amazing local history but it is several years since the society have placed the full collection on display due to the enormity of the task. The Yea and District Historical Society recently held its Annual General Meeting and a Minute's Silence was observed for Founding Member, Life Member and Past President Ron Drysdale who has sadly passed away. His service and dedication were acknowledged by the members. Two of his outstanding projects were the restoration and protection of the Ker family graves at Killingworth and the instigation of the ‘Lone Pine’in Yea Railway Park to mark the Centenary of ANZAC and commemorate the service of our local veterans in the First WorldWar. Another of the Society’s Founding Members, Life Member and Past President, Doug Lade, has also been lost to our community in the past 12 months. Doug's major contributions were the Pinniger Cairn in High St to honour the Surveyor who created the outstanding layout of Yea township ,and the research of and consequent map of the Soldier Settler blocks in Killingworth. These two outstanding members of our community were at the very first meeting called by former Yea High School Headmaster, Glen Jones (who researched and wrote the History of Molesworth) and all three of these men are commended for their foresight in striving to preserve our local history. Find out more and see the photos, documents and memorabilia at the Yea History and Heritage Exhibition on the weekend of September 16-17. - Elaine White

Yea Golf Club ■ There was a 4-ball pairs competition at Yea Golf Club on Saturday with a mixed and a men's section. Life member and club stalwart, Bruce Kindred, was the lucky players of the day. In the draw for partners Bruce was paired with current form player Brian Simmons, and with an aggregate stableford score of 68 they comfortably took out the men's section. Brian had a great round of 76 off the stick to score 40 points and Bruce got the rest. In the mixed section Vicki Clements, 37, and Neil Peterson, 35, recorded the best total of 72 on the day.. Brian was also nearest the pin on the 2nd and included a couple of birdies in his round. Wednesday was also a mixed competition. There was a two-person Ambrose and as part of Daffodil Day was a fundraiser for the Cancer Council. Some 22 players took part and raised over $200 for the appeal. The winners on the day were Christine Simmons and Bob Glenister with a nett 66.5 from Di Holdsworth and Mick Spagnolo on nett 69. Nearest the pins were won by Di Elliott, Christine Simmons and Martin Lowe. - Gary Pollard

YEA NETBALL REPORTS D-GRADE

■ D-Grade have progressed to the Preliminary Final after defeating Alexandra in their best performance in weeks. Alexandra were the only team Yea had not been able to beat all season but the Tigers certainly turned the tables on Sunday in rainy conditions at Emerald. Both sides started the game strongly, the defensive ends working hard to limit the goal scoring. Harriet and Rhi worked hard in the midcourt, bringing the ball into the goal third and making clean delivery into Alicia and Amy who both shot well in this first quarter. Quarter time: Yea 6-4 Yea stamped their authority on the game in the second quarter, the defensive trio of Lobs, Leis and Kate were brilliant, picking off many incoming balls and slowly and steadily working the ball out of defence. Alicia and Amy combined good movement with strong holds to get plenty of opportunity and they shot the Tigers out to a six-goal lead at half-time. Yea 13-7 Ebony and India both entered the game in the third quarter and both girls worked really hard both offensively and defensively, India providing plenty of back up options for the attackers to reset. Ebony received almost every centre pass and made strong accurate passes into the goal ring along with Harriet. Captain Sarah Lobley was magnificent at GK taking at least five intercepts for the quarter and was certainly inspiring her team mates. Alexandra only managed two goals for the quarter and the Tigers were looking comfortable, leading by 11 at the last break. 20-9 The last quarter was a more even tussle as more rain started. Rhi had a great quarter in Centre, leading well to the ball and getting her hands to some nice deflections. Amy and Alicia's combination continued to be strong and Alex had no answers for their height and mobility. Leisa and Lobs finished off a strong defensive game, allowing Alex only four goals in the second half. This was a wonderful team performance by the whole team and coach Deb Schickerling was a happy lady. Yea now has a rematch with Belgrave this weekend and will hope to reverse last week’s result for their place in the 2017 Grand Final. Yea 24 def Alexandra 11 Goals: A. Smith Jones 14, A. O'Connor 10 Best: S. Lobley, L. Peters, H. Vlamis - Cindy Hayes

C-GRADE

■ C-Grade were first up on Sunday playing against their toughest rivals, Belgrave. It was a solid start for Yea, coming out all guns blazing. Deb and Ruby played one of their best games all season in defence. They were very determined to turnover every possible ball and convert it on the scoreboard. They worked exceptionally well with Emily who started off in WD. Emily got a lot of fingers on the ball and she took some well needed intercepts.

YEA NETBALL REPORTS C-GRADE (CONT’D)

Through the midcourt, Jude was strong, controlling the ball throughout the centre third really helped set up Jess, Fi and Molly. Molly was once again phenomenal in the WA positon. She never gave up and showed some brilliant drives in attack. All game she held her head high and just kept chipping away. She brought both Jess and Fi into the game, feeding in well and creating some nice space. Jess opened the game up well, backing herself and following in her shots. Fi did a massive amount of work down back, like always, holding her ground and setting up Jess. It was an awesome first half of netball but unfortunately, Yea dropped their heads going into the third quarter. With wet conditions, it was all about control and possession. Unfortunately, silly errors on Yea's behalf cost them the lead. Yea saw Kim come on into WD, who showed some great intensity and beautiful hands over. Young Jordan came on into the midcourt, where she showed great confidence and drive all over court. Yea really had to fight back in the last. The last quarter Yea tried everything to bring themselves back into the game but it was just a little too late. They had great overall pressure all the way down the court but execution was where they fell away. It was a tough game but Yea will work hard to take more control on court and show some great leadership when they face great rivals, Kinglake on Sunday at Yarra Junction. Good luck girls and well done on a great match against Belgrave on Sunday. Belgrave 32 def Yea 24 Goals: J. Armstrong 17, F. Purvis 7 Best: R. O'Dwyer, M. Jarvie, J. Armstrong - Lauren Hearn

B-GRADE

■ What a ripper match this was for the players and spectators alike. Yea faced up to the undefeated Belgrave side in their first meeting since the beginning of July. On their previous two encounters Belgrave defeated the Tigers by almost 20 goals but the team went in with a 'clean slate' and 'nothing to lose' attitude. This awesome positivity and great team work saw the Tigers make a fantastic start to the game. Reggie, Rach and Kate made strong drives and all girls worked their backsides off to attack every contest and come up with the ball. With Rhi out of action this week Loz moved back into GK to combine with Cindy in GD and it was evident that their playing combination hadn't wavered in all these years and they were brilliant down back, keeping Belgrave to six goals for the quarter (their lowest quarter score for the entire season). The Tigers went into the break 9-6 leaders. Slowly Belgrave worked their way into the game. Yea made few errors but Belgrave were able to capitalise on them when it counted most. The Tigers kept the pressure up though and with great patience worked the ball into attack to Reg who was providing a great target at GS. Whilst the game didn't reflect it, Belgrave managed to score double what Yea did and they took a 22-17 lead into half-time. In the previous encounters Yea were then overrun in the second half but the girls were determined to stay in touch and they did that. Cindy and Lauren contested every ball that came into the Belgrave circle and not one goal went through the Belgrave hoop that wasn't pressured, a might effort from the girls. Chelsea came into the game at half time and she was dogged at WD, getting her hands to countless Belgrave passes and pressuring the centre pass every time. Racheal and Reggie's pressure down the court was crucial defensively, aiding the girls in the backline no end. A 10-12 quarter kept the margin within 7 at three-quarter time.

ALEXANDRA FOOTBALL NETBALL CLUB REPORTS

Despite losing by 10 goals this was not a reflection of the last quarter the Tigers played. Within the first five minutes of the last quarter, hard work from all players on court resulted in two crucial turnovers and with Reg shooting truly, the Tigers were back within 3 goals. Unfortunately they were unable to eat into that margin any further and it was only late goals to Belgrave that saw the margin 10 but it was certainly not a 10-goal game in the Tigers’ eyes. Yea came off the court as positive as when they started the game and it was a real credit to all girls who all came and played at a high intensity and a will to work hard. Yea will have another tussle with Alexandra this weekend with both sides eager to earn that second grand final spot. Belgrave 43 def Yea 33 Goals: A. Akers 19, C. Hayes 14 Best: C. Newcomen, C.

A-GRADE

■ A-Grade came up against Kinglake on Sunday, which was a very good game of netball to watch. All season, all nine girls tried their hardest every single game giving their absolute all. Meg Sundblom had an incredible season in the GS position. The way Meg goes about her game is beyond amazing. She flies under the radar, cool, calm and collected. Her splits and arms were awesome to watch every week. Her partner-in-crime, Nikki Watts, worked exceptionally well with her. Their combination got better and stronger every week. Nikki's workload is phenomenal and her determination is even better. Megan Leatham, well where do we start? She brought so much character to the side, her experience was vital in such a young side. Megan worked so well with Chelsea Spagnolo in midcourt. Chels ran and ran every single week, getting better each time. Her positivity was awesome and her willingness to learn more was even better. Sarah Armstrong had an amazing season. She was always committed and eager to train and play hard. She didn't leave anything in the tank and she will go very far in her seasons to come. She worked so well with defenders, Bridget O'Dwyer and Brooke Lloyd. Bridget and her gadget arms were lovely to watch. Her ability to extend and take some ripper intercepts helped her teammates and especially teammate Brooke down back. Brooke's determination and willingness to win was inspirational to watch. She gave everything she had every single week. She took some great control in defence and that showed on Sunday. Sophie Watts was superb in midcourt. Her give and go's, her feeds and her smile was amazing to watch every week. Sophie Stares was also superb with her long arms. he had some beautiful hands over pressure every single week and nothing seemed to phase her. Even though their finals campaign ended, the love and support everyone has for each other will never be forgotten. All nine girls made up an incredible A-Grade side for the 2017 season. Coach Cindy Newcomen ended Sunday with a very heartfelt message that said: "Nine amazing A-Grade netball girls worked so hard at Emerald. They never gave up and gave all they had for the whole game. Nine girls who started training in February and instantly clicked as a team. They worked for each other and knew how important it was to commit to training and give it your all each Saturday. The same nine girls who are all local and went to school in Yea. Who don't play for money but, played for each other. I am so proud of the season you had. “We reached our goal of getting the double chance. Things didn't go out way today but, I wanted to share with the whole club just how amazing you all are.

ALEXANDRA FOOTBALL NETBALL CLUB REPORTS SUNDAY

■ The AFL Yarra Ranges League 2017 Division 2 Finals continued last Sunday and the Rebels travelled to Emerald for the first time since 2015 with the reserves football team and B- and D-Grade netball teams representing the district, all three teams playing in knock out First Semi Finals. The ground was in top condition but the weather was showery. RESERVES The Reserves included Max Church, Sam Kidd, Daniel Rouget and Nick Waugh to replace the injured Ryan Carter, Rhett Marsh (ill) together with Jake Coulson and Brayden Burchall who were unavailable, in the team that easily accounted for Seville in the Elimination Final. Alexandra began to the top end as heavy rain began to fall which made the ball slippery and hard to control. Yarra Glen kicked the first goal seven minutes into the game but the defence led by Chase Pearce and Corey Jack were contesting well. A long kick out the back resulted in Yarra Glen's next goal as Daniel Roper was working hard at the numerous ball-ups and he forwarded to Conor Heaslip for an Alex goal and Alexandra trailed by seven points at the first break. Daniel Rouget, who took a fine defensive mark, was winning well in defence and Jacob Brereton was now marking the ball well as the rain ceased. Both teams were contesting well with all players under pressure when in possession of the ball as a long kick forward was touched on the line as Alex added the first score well into the quarter. Although goalless, Alexandra had plenty of possessions and won the quarter but trailed by five points at the main break. Another heavy shower fell at the start of the third quarter to again cause further congested play, Brereton was jumping high in the ruck and Jedd Hamill marked within range at the top end but his kick was rushed through for a behind. The umpires were letting play go on in the scrimmages, Sam Kidd ran the length of the ground to mark up forward but only another behind resulted. Both sides became adventurous running the ball through the centre but Yarra Glen got the top result as Puffing Billy's whistle could be heard in the still air. The Glen had marginally increased their lead to 12 points at the last change. Alex was confident they could bridge the margin and started the last quarter well and when Tom Halligan dashed clear and goaled, the difference was five points. Alex was on top in defence and through the midfield and looked likely but a heavy shower mid-term curtailed their control of the ball, the game again became a battle of the defences as time ran out for the Rebels leaving them eight points short 2.8 (20) to Yarra Glen 3.10 (28). Best players included Jacob Brereton, Tom Halligan, Daniel Rouget, Nick Waugh, Tom Dodemaide and Tim Fielden. Although beaten, the Reserves were certainly not disgraced as they contested every possession, the defence again was tight and the midfield created opportunities but the forwards could not get enough clear ball in the conditions to kick a

Experts in Acreage Home Design If you are looking at building on acreage land browse our range of beautiful acreage house plans, you'll soon notice that this is no ordinary range. These well thought out acreage plans have been designed to bring the outdoors in so that you feel connected to the natural surroundings while indoors. You'll find that the designs have been cleverly crafted to maximize penetration of the morning and winter sun into the home, all the while blocking the harsh western sun and capturing the views. You'll find beautifully styled wide-frontage acreage homes in several styles including Colonial, Mountain, Skillion, Coast, Portico, Federation and Classic and you'll be delighted to find that no, you don't have to settle for a boxy narrow suburb home for your acreage land. Stroud Homes see the home as an individual family home, many of the large acreage house designs require extras; large water storage tanks, household sewage treatment plants, off grid systems, bush fire rating, long driveways, sloping blocks, under roof line granny flats, stables, swimming pools and large shed installations. These types of projects carry their own unique challenges, ones that your typical metro builder is likely to be unfamiliar with -at Stroud Homes with our experienced team the pieces go together flawlessly. You are building with a team that finds communication very important, you'll get an update call from us every Friday. As the building progresses we meet with you on site several times to keep you involved in the process. Come handover, an independent inspector comes in and provides a report on the home.
