Investigation into whether MX site complies with law

■ MURRINDINDI Shire Council is investigating whether a motor sport group’s activities comply with planning regulations. Homewood MX has been running regular activities on property accessed by Guymers Rd. ● A photo from the Homewood MX social media page. Photo: Facebook

Speculation about Yea Lanocorp firm ■ Rumours about the future of the Lanocorp firm in Yea have remain unanswered by the company. The Local Paper sent an email to the company on Thursday, asking for public comment about speculation about the company and jobs. No answer had been received when The Local Paper went to press.

The Homewood MX page on Facebook has 1326 followers and 1286 ‘likes’. Glenn Macdonald, of the Motocross Advanced Coaching Academy, commented: “Homewood MX is a great facility made by riders for riders regardless of skill level. “A flowing track with a variety of jumps to test all skill levels in a safe environment for all ages. “Situated just a short distance west of Yea the track is positioned inside an amphitheatre of rolling hills with many perfect spots to spend the weekend camping. “The circuit is in its very early stages of development but I can see completion to a national standard along with the facility strategic plan,” Mr Macdonald said. Gianni Saretta commented last month: “Homewood is good fun, sweet mix of MX and enduro tracks. Needs a bit more focus on organisation, signs etc to keep people riding in the right places and direction.” Paul Coventry said: “Awesome day out, well run by relaxed, passionate blokes who were great to talk to and had as much fun as everyone else.” Bradley Prorok said: "Went out for a look today. Loads of people having a great time on that awesome track. Next time I’ll be bringing the dirt squirter out to join in the fun. Safety was also good as well.” The organisation has taken care to remind its visitors of neighbours: “Please take note that the road into our track (Guymers Rd) is 50kmh. Please don't speed down the road as we have neighbors we need to be respectful of.” A two-day meeting in August saw a full canteen available for both days, a coffee van for four hours on each day, and wood fired pizza “from 4pm Saturday night. “We are not MV affiliated so no race licences are needed. Cost is $20 per rider per day, with camping available on Saturday night for $10,” said an organiser.

Valley link to Brennan

Murrindindi Shire Council Chief Executive Officer Margaret Abbey confirmed that an investigation is underway.

● Grant Brennan ■ A man wanted by Police has links to the Diamond Valley, Thomastown and Epping. Grant Brennan, 47, is wanted for allegedly failing to appear at court in relation to numerous traffic matters and theft offences. He is described as Caucasian, 180cm, solid build, blue eyes, brown fair, and fair complexion. Contact Police, 1800 333 00.

Whittlesea SOS meeting tonight ■ Police Association representatives are expected to be amongst those attending a public meeting at Whittlesea Community Activity Centre, Laurel St, tonight at 7.30pm tonight (Wed.). Concerned local residents have called the meeting to discuss Police staffing levels in the Whittlesea township. The residents believe that staffing levels will dop dramatically when the new Mernda police

stations open. Yan Yean MLA Danielle Green (Labor) has given assurances that Police staffing levels will not drop at Whittlesea. Wendy Lovell, MLC (Liberal) has asked for written assurances from the Andrews Labor State Government that Whittlesea staff levels will not be decreased. “Slashing police numbers at the Whittlesea Police Station is rightly concerning for the local

community,” said the Police Association. “We don’t understand why anyone would want to reduce policing services in a burgeoning community but reducing police numbers at a small station is exactly that - no matter how you try and spin it.” Police Association members, ran-and-file police, Councillors and MPs are expected to attend tonight’s meeting.

Editor’s Diary

● Sen. Det. Jim Sullivan and Det. Sgt. Ian Welch received National Medals, 30 years ago ■ Local detectives, Sen. Det. Jim Sullivan and Det. Sgt. Ian Welch, each received the National Medal at a ceremony held at Benalla. The presentation was made by Det. Chief Insp. Tony McDonough.

$50,000 break-ins ■ Property valued at more than $50,000 was taken in a series of raids on Yea properties including the Shire depot in North St, and the site works for the Yea High School Community Centre in Lawrances Rd. Property worth $10,000 was taken from the Break-O’-Day Rd, Glenburn, property of Lou Cavaggion.

Theft conviction ■ A 31-year-old unemployed Yea man was convicted of theft of gravel from a Shire stack from Murrindindi Rd, Murrindindi. About one square metre of gravel was taken at 1pm. The theft was discovered when Sen. Const. Ken Moore spotted a trailer which had a tyre missing from the rim of one wheel. Magistrate Tony Ellis imposed a conviction, but said he would take into account that the man was unemployed.

Readers’ warning ■ Our newspaper, 30 years ago, carried a front-page warning that photographs on Page 7 of our 1987 edition contained photos of sheep salvaged from a semi-trailer accident at Devil’s Elbow on Ghin Ghin Rd.

Lease ‘for sale’ ■ The lease of the Yea Caravan Park was to be sold for $60,000, the Yea Council decided 30 years ago. Annual rentalk would be $8000 over a 12-15 year period.

Readership up ■ Due to public demand, the print run for The Local Paper has increased again. Extra copies are now available each week at Yarra Glen Newsagency, following requests from local readers. Copies will also be delivered to Yarra Ranges, Whittlesea and Nillumbik councils.

Bus travels via Yarra Glen ■ Yarra Ranges MLACindy McLeish last week told State Parliament about the frustrations of bus passengers having to journey through Yarra Glen. “I rise with an adjournment matter for the Minister for Public Transport,” said Ms McLeish. “The action I seek is that the minister review the bus timetabling in the Yarra Valley. “In particular I refer to routes 683 and 685. “The needs of people in the Yarra Valley have changed in line with changes to the broader area. “It would be good to have a modern service that better reflects community needs. “If we consider route 685 between Lilydale and Healesville, which is run by McKenzie’s, anyone driving between these towns would drive directly. “However, the bus route runs via Yarra Glen. “This is particularly frustrating for many commuters and unsurprisingly many choose to drive to Lilydale and park at the station. “Consideration needs to be given to direct routes to Lilydale from both Healesville and Yarra Glen during peak periods. “There are a couple of direct services from Healesville, which is good for the people of Healesville but not so good for the people of Yarra Glen who miss out on those slots. “The provision of direct services may be attractive for growth in the area and may

● Cindy McLeish MLA potentially alleviate the park ing stress at Lilydale station. “The Sunday timetable has not changed in 25 years. “There is a lot of tourism in the area and tourism is a key employer. The vineyards are popular, as is the Chocolaterie now as a key destination. “Getting people out into this area is very important, and having public transport to help facilitate that is of prime importance. “I also would suggest that the review include bus stops, with consideration given to a bus stop at Healesville hospital. “I am sure those living on both routes would like to see Sunday services reflect the current Saturday timetables. “The needs along the Warburton Highway are slightly different. “A very early weekday service could be as early as 4.15am to connect with a 5.32am service from Lilydale. “This would allow people

to catch connecting services to the Bayswater North industrial precinct. “We have a lot of younger people who work in that hub at Bayswater, and it would be terrific if they had this option to help them get to work. “As with the 685 service, a later service from Monday to Thursday for people living on the Warburton Highway that reflects the Friday timetable would certainly be welcomed. “Revisiting a cross-valley service linking Warburton and Healesville might also be worthwhile. “The feedback from the previous trial, which did not come to fruition on a permanent basis, was that it was being operated at the wrong times of the day and therefore was not viable. “A service that catered for students and office workers in the morning, say between an 8.30 and 8.45 arrival, a lunchtime shopper service, and an afternoon return service between about 4.00 and 4.30, is likely to be much more suitable. “Reviews have been undertaken in the past and recommendations have been made previously; however, those recommendations were not adopted. “So, Minister, I urge you to modernise the timetabling for bus services in the Yarra Valley, and when you get recommendations I urge you to actually implement them and provide us with a better service,” Ms McLeish said.

Speak Up Alexandra ■ Eildon MLA Cindy McLeish gave recognition to the Speak Up Alexandra group, in State Parliament last week. “I was pleased to be able to attend a meeting of Speak Up Alexandra on Monday,” Ms McLeish said. “Speak Up is a local selfadvocacy group whose mission statement is to support people living with a disability in Alexandra. “In 2014 a number of locals went to a training session run by the Self Advocacy Resource Unit (SARU) and were so inspired by what they learned that they decided to form their own group. “I met with Luke Taylor, Nicole Thorn, Nola Cook and Anne-Marie Fricke. “I had previously had the pleasure of tenpin bowling with

Nicole and Anne-Marie in Mansfield, and I am sure on the day we took a girls photo. “I was impressed by the group, who had certainly honed their advocacy skills and done their homework. “They presented me with a list of concerns and talked through the ideas they had for local improvements, including better footpaths, lighting and the installation of disability ramps. “Missing from the meeting on the day were Ian Hewitt, Evan Ditchburn and Jamie Watkins, which was disappointing. “In particular, Ian was the instigator of getting me to the meeting. “Every time he saw me he asked whether I would attend the meeting and when I was coming.

“Unfortunately Ian has not been so well lately, and wishes for a speedy recovery are now in order. “Ian has been a presenter on the fabulous local radio station UGFM for almost 20 years, presenting his own two-hour weekly program, Limbo Rock, as well as covering Saturday afternoon football and netball. “He also assists with the Dame Pattie Menzies segment. “On top of that, Ian helps out with general maintenance and cleaning at the station and is seen as a very valuable team member and role model. “Thanks also to Matthew Fowler and Wendy Kelly, who is a wonderful role model, matter-of-fact, good for a laugh and an inspiration to all,” Ms McLeish said.

■ The popularity of rooftop solar has increased rapidly in the district in recent months, spurred on by the combination of increasing power prices, more affordable panels, and new initiatives like the ‘Bogie Bulk Buy’ making the switch to solar more attractive. The more solar panels sold in the area, however, can have unintended consequences, as more and more brokers move in to try and take advantage of the community’s receptiveness to solar. As some have found out in the last few weeks, not all these businesses are made equal, and both council and those running the Bogie Bulk Buy program, the Yarra Energy Foundation , have concerns some residents may be getting ripped off by door knocking salespeople. - Euroa Gazette

Flowerdale theft ■ At the local court on Thursday last, before Mesers J. O. Sanders and Jas. Taite, J's.P., Henry Douglas, aged 21, was charged with stealing a purse and £8 10s, in notes and silver, the property of Olga Andrews, a school teacher, residing with Miss Brady, at Flowerdale. The accused was sentenced to one month's imprisonment.

Kerrisdale letter ■ The following extracts are from letters received by Mrs M. Wentworth, of Kerrisdale, from her son, Private Dan Wentworth, who is "somewhere in France": "We are having fine weather over here now, and France is looking beautiful, as the summer here is just like spring in Australia, and all the fields around where I am billited are just like a garden in Australia, as there is nearly every flower that you can mention growing wild. “I only wish that you and Dad could stand the sea journey, and when I go back we could come over for a trip, as it is just lovely now; but it is a dog in the winter, but I am quite sure that we will not have to put another winter in here, that is if things go on like they are at present, but if the Germans are not beaten by then I am quite content to stay here for two more.winters, as I could never leave here contented (after what I have seen) until they are properly beaten.”

Yea Red Cross

■ The third annual meeting of the Yea Branch of the Red Cross Workers' Society was held in the Counoil Chamber on Friday afternoon, 31st August, when the report and balance sheet for the year were presented. In October last 35 Christmas boxes were sent from Yea to the Lady Mayoress' Patriotic League, through our Branch, for the men in the trenches. During the year cash amounting to about £198 has passed through our hands, as compared with £164 last year. It must be noted that both materials and wool have greatly increased in price.

Whittlesea Shire

■ A public meeting was held at the Council Chambers, Mernda, on Saturday evening last. The President (Cr Clarke), and Crs. Cornfoot, Brave, Hurrey, Morgan, Thomas, and McCormack and about 50 ratepayers were present. The President stated that with an request from the ratepayer he had convened the meeting to consider the advisability of striking an extra rate to reduce the overdraft, and called on Mr. Waycott to state the case for the ratepayers.

Sunday trading

■ At the Seymour court last week before Mr R. Knight, P.M., and Messrs Chittick and Worland, J'sP., Constable Rae proceeded against the licensee of the Canadian hotel for trafficking in liquor on Sunday, 5th August ; also against Chas. Stanley Leonard for carrying away liquor from the Canadian hotel on the same date. Asked Hunt why he allowed a man in such a state to be on his premises, and he replied "He got nothing from me." Then took the man to the police station and asked if he had any drink, and he said "No." Subsequently opened the front of his coat and found bottle of whisky. Said to Leonard in the presence of Hunt, "What right have you to carry this off licensed premises?" He said "he took it medicinally, and his wife brought it up from Melbourne. He afterwards said she did not, and I found out he was a single man." The P.M.-Well, he should not have taken it- off the premises. I do not think there is a case. There is no evidence to connect Hunt with the whisky. It was very suspicious. The case would be dismissed. The evidence against Leonard for carrying liquor off the licensed premises during prohibited hours was similar to the preceding case. Leonard swore that the whisky was given to him by a friend, whom he named. This case was also dismissed.

Local History

Peace and the Great Depression in Yea ● Yea: A Century of Local Government. 1869-1969 ■ Followed by a two shilling in the pound general rate and a terse note from the Public Works Department “drawing attention to the said overdraft”. An increase in the demand for wool during the war had caused prices to rise steadily, but the district was slowly undergoing a gradual change to cattle and fat lamb raising with greater returns. A municipal garden scheme was being planned for the employment of returned servicemen, but failure to receive any response for their call for soldier settlement blocks caused the Council to “refer the matter of the purchase of Killingworth estate under the compulsory clause, to the Minister of Lands”. The official opening of the new concrete bridge over Yea River took place in April, 1920, almost simultaneously with presenting of Shire certificates to all ex-servicemen throughout the Shire on ANZAC Day. In the middle of what loked to be an undecided future we find Arthur H. Smith applying foir registration to manufacture aerated water, which was subsequently granted. This business reached very large proportions before being taken over by the Cohn Bros. company. The subject of the installation of electricity often came under discussion and thought was even given to the setting up of a hydro-electric power scheme; Councillors Christie and Gardner having been appointed to inspect Jack’s Creek, Stony Creek and Bryan’s Creek with a view to selecting a site. An interesting extraordinary to the central riding ratepayers was the purchase of a town hall for their use. After its subsequent purchase it was necessary “to secure a paddock fenced”. The Government having compulsorily acquired the Killingworth estate it was now over to the Council to provide access roads, a further road was necessary to develop the Dropmore area. With heavy financial commitments projected, the Council struck a General rate of two shillings in the pound for the 1920-21 year. A machine gun which was presented to the Council by the War Trophies Commission was later found to have a live bullet in the magazine. The Council claimed that it had been hard done to and after much bickering the Commission allocated a French mortar and later machine gun. A public move to establish a higher elementary school in the area brought the Council to the fore with an offer of £300 to purchase the land, and a further £1000 towards the erection of the building. The purchase of an International motor truck gave the Council its first item of self-propelled plant, and gave the Yea Board a mode of transport to surrounding districts. The year of 1921 rolled to a close with an imposition of a 10 miles per hour speed limit in the town. Early entertainment in the Shire had been reliant on travelling companies or the local drama club which occasionally came up with a public concert. From the First World War onwards movie pictures were shown

“Financial Emergency Act”. In November the Council received a letter from its bankers with reference to its overdraft, which had increased considerably because of a loan reduction payment. The Shire Council then found it necessary to draw up a list of amounts outstanding and attempt to recover them. The Engineer offered to leave the service of the Shire for “two weeks per month for the next three months”. The Secretary offered to work for “three days a week with pay”. By March, 1932, a total of 187 were listed a sbeing unemployed and of these 96 were married and the other 91 were single. A meeting with a representative of the unemployed suggested that in order that the numbers og his group could get temporary employment elsewhere, they be granted regular work for one full week in three on a roster basis. This suggestion was considered to be suitable and was carried by the Council as a motion. The year of 1932 closed its statement of accounts, with a glimmer of hope, one of its operations the Electric Light Account had shown a profit of £268/3/2. The finances of the Shire were however completely paralysed and the Shire President donated £20 of his Presidential allowance back to the Council. Estimates for the year 1933-34 showed a proposed stifled expenditure of £978/2/- on a General Rate of two pence farthing; coupled with a Presidential allowance of £150, which was nearly a third of the Engineer’s salary. The Council’s application to the Court of Petty Sessions for the arrest of the late Secretary, D.V. Wallace “in regard to alleged embezzlement of funds” began in 1934. The hardest hit persons in the Shire would have been the Soldier Settlers, who had moved on to the land with no money or very little money. The Council, trying to assist the soldier settlers and their own financial position, applied to the Government for payment of 20 per cent of their rates, and if the soldier settler was unable to pay, “would the Government pay the full amount?” brought a negative reply. The Commonwealth Bank, the bank the Council had previously spurned the formation of in 1911, finally saved the day with a long term loan of £3300, and hel;ped to keep their overdraft limit at around £5000. The appointment of Shire Secretary from 38 applicants in September, 1934, indicated that there might have been more than one Shire in Victoria in severe financial plight. Flooding and an estimated £587 damage, coupled with the resignation of the Engineer to take up a position as Engineer to the City of Hawthorn, came at the end of 1934. This in itself indicates the calibre of personnel that the Council attracted to its various staff positions. The previous thre eyears had been the most difficult in the Shire’s economic history. It has done much to alleviate the problem of the widespread unemployment problem of 1932 and as a result had overspent considerably on works. Continued Next Page

Local History

Yea in the 1930s: prosperity and war ● Yea: A Century of Local Government. 1869-1969 ■ The Council’s overspend on works had, however, benefitted the population of the Shire beyond any doubt, and would certainly deserve the Councillors of that time “our Civic Fathers”. Although the depression had been nationally centred around the years 1929-31 it could not have been really said to have affected the population of the Yea Shire until 1931, although the local prices of wool and stock had started a down-grade at that time. The reconstruction of the country’s economy and the emphatic support of the Government to the development of secondary induystry, resulting in increased exports, helped the nation to regain a more composed air. The outlook was bright and this influenced public bodies. The estimates for the year 1935-36 included an expenditure of £9605 on public works and a further £1810 was available for permanent works. A referendum to subdivide the Shire into ridings was met with a 376 cote approval for subdivisions and a 357 vote against. Consolidation of the Shire’s works program with a general reorganisation was being conducted by the Engineer, Mr Moore, who made the following remark: “In future years I hope to propose to machine up the whole system of roads twice per annum in Spring and Autumn”. To guard against substantial loss the Council instructed “Mr T. Davies to hold himself in readiness to proceed immediately with his motor truck to any bridge which may be menaced”. Due to an increase in electricity consumption the Council increased, with heavier plant, the 80kw capacity to 100kw. To further confirm the rebounding economy the Council granted the Engineer a £100 wage rise “provided that he hold office for a further two years”. Over the years a number of spirited efforts to have the playing of Sunday tennis on the town courts permitted - each application being firmly rebuffed with the support from sections of the Church. Aviation as a means of transport was greatly increasing and arrangements were made “to paint the word ‘YEA’ on certain suitable roofs within the town for the convenience of aircraft”. It is not therefore surpising to read Mr Moore, the Engineer, applying “With the Council’s approval I propose to take a flying trip to England in February”. Estimates for 1937-38 totalled £11,200 including the Country Roads Board grant and included two ambitious programs, namely the reconstruction of the Molesworth Bridge, which had been constructed in 1874 and the bitumenising of 11.5 miles of road. The Engineer in summing up on the year’s work reported that: “In the past year 36 old streets have been reconstructed”, he further went on to say that with routine maintenance they would last for a further 15 to 20 years.

to the Shire, and as the present hallkeeper was noted as a person who “had always done his work”. In recognition of his long service he was granted a month’s salary. A call by the Department of Munitions for aluminium and other scrap material resulted in the salvage depot being full because of the inability of the Railways to cart it away. Meanwhile the entering of army vehicles into the district was causing the Shire some concern, as in the case of the “destruction of a bridge at Ghin Ghin by the passage of a 27-ton army tank on a recent journey into the district”. The Engineer reported “No bridges on side roads can be expected to carry more than five tons”. Professor G.S. Browne visited the district in November, 1943, and urged the establishment of a Consolidated School in Yea to draw pupils from all over the Shire, thus affording the best possible education in the one district. Pupils were to be conveyed to the schools by buses. A report by the Medical Officer in 1944 established a home help service, and the Council voted £200 for the financing of the project, which would involve about four volunteers, with an estimated number of families which would need assistance over a year being 26. At 8am on May 1, 1945, the power supply of the town was taken over by the State Electricity Commission. The purchase price of the plant was £6166 plus the value of stores on hand at the time. The loan redemption would require £4851 as a total settlement and £1315 remained over. A retrenchment of staff with suitable employment was also decided upon. Under the new scheme the Council would have to pay £211 for street lighting as against £160 under the old scheme. To the consumer the rate would be cheaper. The Waterworks Trust, like many other bodies around the town, approached the Council for the transfer of the profit from the sale of the Electricity Supply to their works in hand. The move by the Waterworks Trust resulted in a reply that it was not legal to transfer funds to the Waterworks Trust. Two by-laws drafted in early 1945, namely, the diagonal parking of cars in the street and the implementation of one way traffic, are still in use. Little wonder that the Yea Waterworks Trust had been seeking the proceeds of the sale of the Electricity Supply because a letter complaining of the “appearance and the quality of the water” was received. A logical solution was to snag the Yea River, which would result in a smooth fast running stream. The Advance Yea Association was yet to bring up a list of further recommendations for the improvement of the area: the establishment of a garbage service and the report on the establishment of a sewerage scheme was to be obtained. A poll held to decide the number of residents in favour of a sewerage scheme was held and resulted in 145 ratepayers being in favour and 56 against the scheme. To Be Continued

Stateside with Gavin Wood in West Hollywood

Directors visit Ramada, WeHo

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

Out and About

Creative minds meet

■ International hotelier Alan Johnson caught up with two of Australia's leading international film directors at the Ramada Hotel and Suites in West Hollywood. Michael Rymer is well known for his brilliant work on Battlestar Galactica, Queen of the Damned, In Too Deep, Deadline Gallipoli and more recently Picnic at Hanging Rock. Rod Hardy started his journey with Crawford Productions and has directed Daniel Radcliffe in December Boys and is soon to direct a mysterious French-Australian movie which is very top secret. Alan Johnson always supports Australians who are giving it a red-hot go in Hollywood.

Stars on hurricane telethon ■ Beyoncé leads a roster of big-name celebrities who've signed on to help raise money to benefit victims of Hurricane Harvey in a live telethon. George Clooney, Barbra Streisand and Oprah Winfrey were just a few of those set to appear during Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief yesterday (Tues., Sept. 12). The one-hour special will air at 8pm ET across ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and CMT. The benefit will also feature Julia Roberts, Reese Witherspoon, Matthew McConaughey, Dennis Quaid, Blake Shelton and country superstar George Strait. Proceeds from the event will be donated to several charities aiding recovery efforts in Houston, including the United Way of Greater Houston, Habitat for Humanity, Save the Children, Feeding Texas and the Mayor's Fund for Hurricane Harvey Relief.

Marty signs worldwide deal

■ Now here's something to really jump up and down on the couch for. Hollywood's worst-kept romantic secret the relationship between Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes is finally out of the bag, after the couple was photographed walking hand in hand on the beach in Malibu on Labour Day, wearing matching fedoras no less. They have repeatedly denied they are in a relationship over the past few years, despite incessant rumours and frequent sightings of them together. ■ Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost were spotted at Nick & Toni's holding hands and enjoying a late-night dinner, and Billy Joel with Gov. Andrew Cuomo were dining outside. ■ Kendall Jenner and Blake Griffin are definitely a couple, according to spies who saw them together on the beach at Soho House in Malibu on Sunday. One witness said: "They spent all day together on the beach and at Soho House's Little Beach House. It definitely looked like a date, or the early stages of a romance. They were laughing and having a good time." ■ Don't expect George and Amal Clooney to expand their brood anytime soon. "I'm 39," Amal told The Hollywood Reporter with a firm shake of her head when asked if she wanted more kids with her Oscar-winning husband. "I already had them quite late." Despite rumours that George, 56, and Amal used fertility treatments to conceive their twins, Ella and Alexander, the Suburbicon director insists that Amal's pregnancy was a surprise to them both and that her pregnancy with twins was an outright shock at Amal's ultrasound. ■ Fun-loving movie star Cuba Gooding Jr. surprised a group of beautiful bikini-wearing women when he joined them in a spa hot tub. Spies said that the American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson star was alone relaxing at the Great Jones Spa in Soho in NYC when he saw the women having a "girls' night" and decided to jump in their jacuzzi. Cuba was there alone and joined the girls night out. ■ Actor Orlando Bloom was seen at the annual Malibu Chilli Cook-off . Pharrell Williams was at Public Kitchen in NYC with his wife Helen Lasichanh, Warren Buffett was spotted celebrating his 87th birthday at Smith & Wollensky in NYC with a group of charity donors. Bill and Hillary Clinton were at at the 1770 House in East Hampton.

Agent to the rescue ■ Top UTA agent Jeremy Barber saved a woman from choking to death during a flight headed back to LA from the Telluride Film Festival. Barber, a partner in the agency with clients including Anthony Hopkins, Don Cheadle, Sigourney Weaver, Noah Baumbach and Julian Fellowes, was on the same Delta shuttle that's been transporting stars such as Christian Bale and Natalie Portman to and from the remote Colorado town. As Barber boarded the starry flight, he helped a woman stow her overhead bag but there was trouble later when the same woman, who was sitting directly in front of him, started choking, she was about to die. It was not good. People were freaking out, he really saved her life.

Birthday for cars

■ The year 1886 is considered to be the birth of the modern car. In that year, German inventor Carl Benz built a modern automobile called the Benz Patent-Motorwagen. ■ Sir Alec Guinness warned James Dean one week before he died not to get into his new Porsche 550 Spyder or "You'll be dead in it by this time next week." ■ There are currently more than one billion cars on the earth. ■ The United States has more cars than any other country in the world, at 300 million. China comes in a distant second, at 78 million. ■ Holding a remote car key to your head doubles its range because the human skull acts as an amplifier.

Mention my name

■ If you are considering a move to Los Angeles or just coming over for a holiday then I have got a special deal for you. We would love to see you at the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Suites, 8585 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood. I have secured a terrific holiday deal for readers of the Melbourne Observer and The Local Paper. Please mention 'Melbourne Observer' when you book and you will receive the 'Special Rate of the Day'.

Richard’s big legal bills ● Marty Rhone ■ One of our great Aussie singers of the 60s and 70s with hits like Denim & Lace and A Mean Pair of Jeans has signed a worldwide personal management deal with CMP Management, a division of Countdown Motion Pictures. Marty is in the recording studio with famed record producer David Holman to record his new country album, which is slated for release early 2018. "We are very excited to have Marty on our celebrity roster," said CEO Gavin Wood in Hollywood yesterday. That's me folks and I have known Marty since 1974 when I used to play his songs on the radio, so we go right back to the relic rack. It is going to be an incredible journey.

■ Fitness guru Richard Simmons's lawsuit against the National Enquirer is officially over and Simmons is looking at a huge legal bill, we're told. Simmons sued the newspaper in May for claiming that he is transitioning into a woman. Over the weekend, LA Judge Gregory Keosian rubberstamped his decision to dismiss the enigmatic fitness guru's case, arguing that it's not defamatory to say someone is transgender. Simmons is now on the hook for the legal expenses of the National Enquirer, which sources say could run into "hundreds of thousands of dollars."

Movies, DVDs with Jim Sherlock, Aaron Rourke What’s Hot and What’s Not in Blu-Rays and DVDs FILM: BECOMING BOND: Genre: Biography/Comedy/Drama. Cast: George Lazenby, Josh Lawson, Kassandra Clementi. Year: 2017. Rating: M. Length: 92 Minutes. Stars: *** Verdict: The story of George Lazenby, the Australian car mechanic who, through an unbelievable set of circumstances, replaced the legendary Sean Connery by landing the role of James Bond 007 in "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" (1969), despite having never acted a day in his life, then after being offered the next seven Bond films and a $1 million signing bonus, he turned it all down. Hugely engaging and entertaining biographical-comedy-docu-drama has George Lazenby telling the story in his own words, and tongue firmly in his cheek. Funny, raunchy, sad, involving and even poignant, you can't help but be charmed by Lazenby's charismatic presence and captivating story-telling ability, all aided by a wealth of news and interview footage, re-enacted sequences and behind-the-scenes material. But at the end of it all, one is still left to wonder "Why?" and "What IF?." FILM: PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN - DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES: Genre: Action/Adventure/Fantasy. Cast: Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Geoffrey Rush, David Wenham, Keira Knightley, Orlando Bloom, Paul McCartney (as Uncle Jack). Year: 2017. Rating: M. Length: 129 Minutes. Stars: *** Verdict: This fifth outing for Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil's Triangle, and determined to kill every pirate at sea...including him, and Captain Jack's only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artefact that gives the power of total control over the seas. Directed this time by Norwegian due Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg, who gave us the superb 2012 film "Kon-Tiki," everything about this swashbuckling saga is BIG, big sets, production design, big cast, eye-popping action, jaw-dropping CGI special effects, and plenty of pyrotechnics, it's all there, and then sum, as Jack Sparrow staggers and swaggers his way around the Caribbean defying all the odds. This outrageously outlandish epic is something Cecil B. De Mille or Errol Flynn would be doing if they were alive and well today. Typical of Johnny Depp's character and charisma he gives his usual Jack Sparrow performance with Marlon Brando style verbal mumbo-jumbo, and the remaining cast, most notably Javier Bardem as Captain Salazar and Geoffrey Rush as Captain Hector Barbossa, are all having fun. Not without its flaws, it's not the cinematic equivalent of Picaso or Rembrant, but whatever caught the imagination in the previous four adventures remains pretty much in-tact here.You don't need to be a rocket scientist to find something to enjoy in this illogical and loud swashbuckling roller-coaster ride, a recipe that Hollywood has been doing for around 100 years, and will no doubt continue to do so. FILM: THE MUMMY - 2D + 3D: Genre: Action/Adventure/Fantasy. Cast: Tom Cruise, Russell Crowe (Dr. Henry Jekyll), Sofia Boutella (Ahmanet). Year: 2017. Rating: M. Length: 110 Minutes. Stars: **½ Verdict: A former U.S. Military officer, or Soldier of Fortune, (Tom Cruise) unintentionally unearths the tomb of Princess Ahmanet, and becomes haunted and possessed after she puts a curse on him, enter Dr. Henry Jekyll (Russell Crowe), as she unleashes all sorts of terror and destruction that defy human comprehension. The first instalment in the (Unversal) Dark Universe film series, this is not a good start for this reboot of "The Mummy" franchise, an unengaging, dull and tiresome seen it all too many times before in other forms: it's Mission Impossible meets Raiders of the Lost Ark, meets An American Werewolf in London, meets The Walking Dead, meets The Evil Dead ... all classics for a reason.It's all there, the globetrotting locations, the Mission Impossible style action, falling buildings, massive CGI effects, but through it all remains flat and unexciting, doesn't do what horror should do, be scary. At least the Brendan Fraser "Mummy" trilogy with: The Mummy (1999), The Mummy Returns (2001), The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008), was a fun experience, where this new "Tom Cruise" formulaic nuts and bolts effort fails. Even the classic Abbott & Costello Meet The Mummy (1955) was far more scary and ultimately entertaining! If you haven't experienced the catch the original The Mummy (1932) starring Boris Karloff, and Hammer's The Mummy (1959) with Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. - James Sherlock

Rourke’s Reviews: Handmaiden ■ (R). 144/167 minutes. Coming soon to Blu-Ray and DVD. After making his Hollywood debut in 2013 with the stylishly disturbing Stoker, director Park Chanwook (Old Boy, Thirst) returns to his roots with The Handmaiden, and his many fans will see that he has lost none of his ability to capture the dark, macabre side of human nature. Set in the 1930s, when Korea was under Japanese occupation, the story centres on Sook-hee (Kim Tae-ri, making her feature film debut), a talented pickpocket who works with her family, all experienced con-artists themselves. When a local swindler (Ha Jung-woo) offers a proposal that could prove incredibly lucrative, Sook-hee sees this as a chance to live a more luxurious life. The plan will involve her becoming the handmaiden to Japanese heiress Lady Hideko (Kim Min-hee), and slowly influencing the timid woman to accept the advances of the swindler, who will be posing as a Japanese Count. Once the two elope, the duo will steal Hideko's fortune, but as the scheme begins to play out, complications start to arise. Based on the acclaimed 2002 novel by Sarah Waters (which was also turned into a 2005 BBC miniseries), this certainly follows the basic outline of the source material, but screenwriters Chung Seokyung and Chan-wook twist and turn it into something all their own, creating a dark fable that lives and breathes within its culturally specific setting. Serpentine in structure, there is delicious fun to be had in seeing what dastardly deed will be inflicted next, and every performance perfectly captures the characters' desires and duplicities. Min-Hee (Moby Dick / Very Ordinary Couple) and Tae-ri are extraordinary, deflecting elements that could have been sleazy with noticeable skill. The sex scenes are explicit (and are reminiscent of the recent French film Blue Is The Warmest Colour), but never feel gratuitous or exploitative. Super star Jung-woo (The Chaser / The Yellow Sea) acquits himself well, Jin-woong makes the most of his role as the crazed Uncle, and it's great to see veteran Moon So-ri (Oasis / Peppermint Candy) on the big screen, and is a treat to watch. All this Dangerous Liaisonsstyle treachery has been beautifully realised by a talented crew of exceptional craftspeople, and Chanwook himself is in fine form, blending the grotesque with the blackly humorous with a typically masterful hand. His only mis-step occurs during a fifteen minute segment which recaps the story from a different angle. It is an unnecessary diversion, slightly muting Chan-wook's otherwise impressive storytelling skills. Hopefully like the superb UK release, this will contain both the theatrical and extended versions of the film.

Deepwater Horizon

■ (M). 107 minutes. Now available on Blu-Ray and DVD. This polished, high-octane feature from actor-turned-director Peter Berg (Very Bad Things / Friday Night Lights / The Kingdom) is one that raises mixed emotions. On one hand it is a superbly produced, excitingly executed action extravaganza that keeps the viewer on the edge of their seat, delivering the kind of thrills that mark the best films of the disaster genre, such as The Poseidon Adventure and (more appropriately) The Towering Inferno. On the other hand, you begin to feel guilty enjoying what you are watching on screen, as it continues to hit you that this is based on a true story that was tragic in so many ways. Based on the biggest oil disaster in US history, the film covers the moments leading up to the horrifying destruction that occurred on the massive oil rig. We are given a quick tour of the off-shore location and its inhabitants, namely Mike Williams (Mark Wahlberg), rig chief Jimmy Harrell (Kurt Russell), console operator Andrea Fleytas (Gina Rodriguez), and BP rep Vidrine (John Malkovich, sporting a hilariously over-the-top southern accent). The early scenes between Williams and his family are effective if overly calculated, while the banter between workmates feels real and frequently amusing, even if all the characters come across as rather one-dimensional. If certain roles do resonate, it is due to the work of the actors involved rather than the script given to them. Wahlberg is once more a reliable presence (this pairing between star and director works better than the uncomfortable misfire Patriots' Day), but the film is stolen by veteran Russell (also recently seen in the blockbusters The Fate Of The Furious and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2), who embodies the honest, continually frustrated Harrell with the kind of comforting humanity that big business forever lacks. Director Berg, who normally uses the often intolerable shakycam format, thankfully employs a more classical approach this time, and the film is immeasurably better because of it. Added to that, the fact that massive sets were built in order to carry out action scenes as practically as possible, and what you have is a surprisingly old-fashioned disaster film that delivers fast-paced, adrenaline-fuelled entertainment. Not surprisingly, this large-scale tribute reminds one of Ron Howard's Backdraft (including the presence of Russell), another technically impressive feature that turned everyday workers into larger-than-life superheroes. Despite the uneasy feelings of enjoying slick, big-screen spectacle that is based on real-life tragedy, Deepwater Horizon achieves its very specific goals, and Irwin Allen would have definitely given his nod of approval to the end result.

■ Jack Benny was one of the world's most loved comedians during the 20th Century. He developed a wonderful character on radio, television and also in films. He used running gags throughout his showbusiness career with superb comic timing - the ‘penny pinching’ miser, the vain playboy and the ‘would be’ violinist. Benjamin Kubelsky was born in 1894 in Chicago, Illinois, to Jewish parents who had emigrated from Europe. By the time he was 17 he was playing his violin in local vaudeville shows. He joined the Navy during World War I and returned to showbusiness after the war ended. In 1921, he was working as a comedian and began to use the stage name of Jack Benny. Around this time, he met Sadie Marks who became a part of his stage act and they married in 1927. The couple adopted a daughter. Sadie Marks later used the stage name of Mary Livingston. Jack was cast in one of the early talking films, The Hollywood Revue of 1929, which featured many of the popular film stars including Laurel and Hardy. His next film was a flop and Jack was released from his film contract. In 1932 Jack Benny began his radio show which was to become one of the most popular programs in America. There were a group of regular performers

including his wife Mary Livingston, Eddie RochesterAnderson, Phil Harris and Dennis Day. Jack used the popular song Love in Bloom as his theme music for the radio show. A nother running gag was his age - he celebrated his 39th birthday 41 times. His television series began in 1950 and ran for 15 years. He got one of the longest laughs in history in the sketch where he is confronted by a robber with a pistol who says, "Your Money or your life?" - the laughs went on and on until the robber asked, "Well?"- another period of laughter till Jack replied, "I'm thinking it over!" His films included, Buck Benny Rides Again, Charlie's Aunt, Love Thy Neighbour, George

● Jack Benny Washington Slept Here and the film that he always "sent up" in comedy sketches - The Horn Blows at Midnight. When he began to do his Las Vegas stage shows my cousin Diana Trask worked with him. Diana recalls in her autobiography that Jack loved the comedian George Burns and he would fall down on the ground laughing at his jokes.

George suggested to Jack that they go to Jeanette Mc Donald's opening night and said, "Wouldn't it be funny if, when Miss McDonald began to sing we both burst out laughing." Jack agreed to go along with the joke. They were seated in the front row on opening nigh and when Jeanette McDonald began to sing Jack broke into hysterical laughter whilst the deadpanned George Burns sat there smoking his cigar, shrugging his shoulders and telling nearby audience members, "I don't know what's wrong with him." Jack Benny toured Australia in 1974 with Johnny O'Keefe and appeared at the Comedy Theatre. Diana was there when Jack blew out the candles on his 80th birthday cake. At the time of his death in 1974 he was going to make the film The Sunshine Boys and the role was taken over by his longtime friend George Burns. The mean character was not true, this wonderful comedian was very generous and he is sadly missed.

Classy field for Golden Rose in Sydney ■ Top Sydney trainer Gerald Ryan will saddle up the ruling favourite for the rich Golden Rose in Sydney on September 23 against a top class field of classy three year-olds. Menari was an impressive winner of the listed Rosebud over 1100 back on August 12. It is just favourite over the runnerup in the Blue Diamond Stakes at Caulfield back in February, in the classy colt Pariah. Pariah is prepared by two of the best, in Peter Snowden and his son Paul, and since resuming has showed that he is back to his best after his unplaced run in the Golden Slipper on a heavy track. He had been working well since resuming in great fashion. On the next line is the undefeated Victorian colt, Merchant Navy, in the care of top young Victorian trainer, Ciaron Maher. The son of Fastnet Rock has now put together four on end, since winning his first start at Pakenham. He then won at Sandown and was most impressive first up since April with a strong win at Caulfield over 1200 metres. On the same line is one of Darren Beadman's favourites, Kementari, after a four length win on May 27. Beadman, assistant to James Cummings at Godolphin, is most impressed with the three- year-old. Another that has ability is the Hawkes team trained three-year -ld, Chauffer, a good second at his last start to the favourite, Menari. Of the others you have the HayesDabernig trained Formality who won well in Sydney last start and Beau Geste, a good third at his last start. I like the way that Pariah is going, and the Maher camp is rapt in their colt, Merchant Navy, but, it is a tough race.

Court Roundsman

Russell: leave to appeal refused ■ Yea man Jack Russell last month lost his Supreme Court application for leave to appeal a Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal decision over a three-lot subdivision approved by Murrindindi Shire Council. Mr Russell appeared before Judge Karin Emerton. The respondents, Murrindindi Shire Council, Kerry and Peter Tull, did not appear at the Supreme Court. Judge Emerton’s determination said: ■ The applicant seeks leave to appeal against the whole of the order of the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal made on April 21 2017 granting a permit for a three lot subdivision and the removal of an existing easement at 140 High Street, Yea. ■ The applicant objected to the subdivision proposal, which was approved by the Council. A permit to develop the land in question by constructing three dwellings had already been granted. ■ The applicant applied to the Tribunal to review the Council’s decision to grant the subdivision permit. ■ The application for review was heard in the Tribunal over two days, on March 28 2017 and April 20 2017. The applicant attended the first day only. ■ The Tribunal’s reasons for decision record that the first day was taken up with ruling on five witness summonses issued by the applicant and with giving the applicant the opportunity to inspect the ‘job file’ of the project land surveyors and put in place arrangements for certain documents from that file to be copied and circulated. ■ The Tribunal ruled that the witness summonses had either been fully satisfied or should otherwise be set aside on the basis that they were not relevant to any legitimate purpose in the proceeding. ■ The applicant subsequently sought to issue a sixth witness summons, which was refused at a practice day hearing on April 10, 2017. Thereafter, the applicant applied for an adjournment, which was also refused. He advised that he would not be attending the further hearing of his application for review scheduled for April 20, 2017. ■ On that second hearing day, both the Council and the permit applicants were represented, but, as discussed, there was no appearance by the applicant Mr Russell. The permit applicants made submissions of a general nature in support of the proposal, and the Council and the permit applicants held discussions regarding a permit condition. ■ The Tribunal found that it was acceptable and appropriate that the proposed three lot subdivision and the removal of the existing easement be approved, first and foremost because a planning permit had already been granted for the development of the intended three units. The Tribunal observed that the debate was no longer about whether any dwellings should be built on the subject land, but rather whether it was acceptable to split the title into three and remove the existing easement. The Tribunal also commented that it was rare for subdivision planning applications to be brought on review to the Tribunal where the necessary development approval had

heard and determined again. ■ The applicant requires the leave of the Court in order for the proposed appeal to go ahead. ■ The principles to be applied in considering an application for leave to appeal against a decision of the Tribunal were established in Secretary to the Department of Premier and Cabinet v Hulls. They were succinctly expressed by Garde J in Zumpano v Banyule City Council: A pivotal requirement is that an Applicant must identify a question of law for which there is a real or significant argument to be put that error exists. The Court will also have regard to the justice of the particular case, and whether the applicant has identified a question of law that is of general or public importance. The Applicant must show that there is sufficient doubt attendant the question of law to justify the grant of leave. ■ It is necessary to consider the proposed grounds of appeal and questions of law to determine whether the Tribunal’s decision is attended by sufficient doubt to justify the grant of leave. ■ On May 18, 2017, the applicant filed an originating motion with an affidavit in support, and a draft notice of appeal. The draft notice of appeal includes a photocopy of part of the affidavit in support which sets out proposed grounds of appeal. ■ These proposed grounds of appeal contain a range of unparticularised allegations. It is alleged, in general terms, that there was ‘judicial error’ and that the decision was ‘not lawful’. It is alleged that the Tribunal ‘had the wrong meaning of legislation’ and ‘the wrong application of legislation’; that the Tribunal member failed to take into account relevant evidence, failed to require subpoenas for production to be enforced or require persons to attend; that the Tribunal considered irrelevant evidence, exercised power improperly, acted in bad faith, exhibited a perceived bias, failed to realise the limitations of legislation, was manifestly unreasonable and failed to give proper weight to ‘highly significant factors’. It is alleged that the applicant was wrongly refused an adjournment and was unable to present his evidencein-chief at the final hearing. Generally, it is alleged that the applicant was denied procedural fairness. ■ These proposed grounds of appeal are not sufficiently specific to enable assessment of whether the Tribunal erred in law in any way. They do not rise above bare assertion. ■ At a directions hearing on May 26, 2017, the applicant was ordered to file and serve an amended originating motion adding the permit applicants as parties and clearly and succinctly identifying the questions of law and grounds of appeal that he wished to agitate. ■ The Court also ordered the applicant to file and serve an affidavit exhibiting a transcript of the Tribunal hearing and any other relevant materials upon which he sought to rely by July 7, 2017. The need for the transcript of the Tribunal hearing to be before the Court (or, failing that, the audio tapes of the hearing) arose because the (then) proposed notice of appeal contained grounds that in substance complained that the conduct of the Tribunal hearing was unfair to the applicant.

■ The applicant has now filed and served an amended originating motion. It sets out a single ground of appeal and identifies three related questions of law. ■ The proposed ground of appeal is that the Tribunal failed to consider how the proposed subdivision affected the urban landscape objectives in cl 56.05 that relevantly provide for attractive and continuous landscaping in streets and public open spaces that contribute to the character and identity of existing or preferred neighbourhood character in existing urban areas. It is also alleged that the Tribunal failed to consider that the application for the subdivision failed to describe the abutting street widths, materials and detailing in the surrounding area. ■ The questions of law identified raise issues concerning the status and construction of the urban landscape policy in cl 56.05 of the Planning Scheme. ■ It will be observed that the ground of appeal now proposed to be agitated by the applicant is entirely different from the grounds set out in his earlier draft notice of appeal. It is limited to whether the Tribunal failed to take into account a relevant consideration — being a policy in the Murrindindi Planning Scheme — in granting the permit for the subdivision. ■ It will also be noted that the Tribunal stated in the Reasons that it considered that the proposal was consistent with the objectives of cl 56. I infer that the Tribunal considered the objectives in cl 56 as a whole, including the objectives of cl 56.05. ■ Clause 56 is generally concerned with residential subdivision. The provisions of cl 56 contain ‘objectives’ that describe the desired outcome to be achieved in the completed subdivision and ‘standards’ which contain the requirements to meet the objective. ■ Clause 56.05 concerns ‘urban landscapes’. It is in two parts: the first part describes integrated urban landscape objectives and contains Standard C12; the second part describes public open space provision objectives and contains Standard C13. Only the first part, which is in cl 56.05-1, has any relevance to the subdivision proposal. The proposed three lot subdivision does not raise any issues concerning the provision of public open space and cl 56.05-2 is not a clause in respect of which the General Residential Zone requires the standards to be met for a three lot subdivision. ■ As to cl 56.05-1, the only objective that could have any bearing on the subdivision proposal is that of providing ‘attractive and continuous landscaping in streets ... that contribute(s) ... to existing or preferred neighbourhood character in existing urban areas’. ■ That is an objective which, taken in isolation, does not require any particular thing to be done or not to be done. Standard C12 is the part of cl 56.05-1 that specifies things that need to be done. It requires an application for subdivision to be accompanied by a landscape design and then sets out in a number of dot points what the landscape design should include or achieve.

Brendan walks the walk ■ The Salvation Army’s Major Brendan Nottle was due to be at a meet-and-greet barbecue at the Y Water Discovery Centre on Monday (Sept. 11) as The Local Paper was going to press. Brendan is walking 700km from Melbourne to Canberra to raise awareness for homelessness and related issues, particularly in rural areas. The Salvation Army Major left the charity's Bourke St base on Friday morning joined by politicians, an escort of police, firefighters and a cheering crowd. "Basically we've got to the point of severe frustration," Major Nottle told reporters before his journey. "We work really hard to get a person off the street, (but) very quickly their place is filled by somebody else."

Court Roundsman ● From Page 43 The requirement to provide a landscape design applies to an application for a subdivision that ‘creates streets or public open space’. The three unit subdivision proposal that was before the Tribunal did neither. ■ The questions of law identified make it clear that in raising the urban landscaping policy, the applicant is seeking to re-agitate his concerns about over development and ‘high density living’. These were concerns that should have been raised at the development proposal stage. As the Tribunal indicated, questions of neighbourhood character and the effect of the three unit development on the streetscape will have been considered as part of the development application, an application that the applicant did not challenge. ■ Furthermore, based on what the Reasons reveal about the applicant’s objections in the Tribunal, he made no objection that the subdivision proposal did not meet the urban landscape objectives in cl 56.05. ■ The Tribunal considered the specifics of the subdivision proposal and the relevant planning controls, including cl 56. It did so having regard to the fact that development approval had already been given for the construction of three detached dwellings on the land. The Tribunal considered the in-

crease in housing density, stating that the creation of three new lots that were smaller than traditional larger lots featuring detached single dwellings would create greater housing diversity in Yea and contribute to improved housing affordability, which was consistent with cl 21.041 of local policy, and that the zoning of the land anticipated some degree of greater residential intensification. ■ The Tribunal stated that it had considered a range of policies in the Murrindindi Planning Scheme. It was not obliged to refer to every one of them in its Reasons. ■ I am not persuaded that there is a significant argument to be put that the Tribunal erred in the manner in which it carried out its assessment of the subdivision proposal. ■ Furthermore, even if the Tribunal erred in some way by not expressly referring to and discussing the objective or objectives in cl 56.05, this would not be a vitiating error. I am not persuaded that it could have made any difference to the outcome of the application for review in circumstances where the Tribunal considered the objectives of cl 56 generally and a development application had already been approved. The question of neighbourhood character was required to have been resolved as part of the development application approval. ■ As a final matter, the applicant has included a ground that the Tribunal failed to consider that the ap-

plication for the subdivision failed to describe abutting street widths, material and detailing in the surrounding area. The Court has no evidence of what was or was not contained in the subdivision plans. This ground is unsupported. ■ In my view, the Tribunal’s decision is not attended by sufficient doubt to justify the grant of leave to appeal. Moreover, there is nothing in the overall justice of the situation that would require leave to appeal to be granted. ■ Leave to appeal is refused and the proceeding is dismissed. Adjournment application ■ At the commencement of the hearing of the application for leave to appeal, the applicant stated that he wished to apply for an adjournment in order to have his barrister appear to make the application for leave. ■ The application for an adjournment was refused. ■ The applicant made it plain that he had not taken any steps to contact his barrister to ask whether the barrister would be available (or willing) to appear. The applicant had no idea if or when his barrister might be available. In other words, he had left it until the commencement of the hearing to make any inquiry about the availability of his barrister. ■ No reason was given by the applicant as to why inquiries were not made much earlier.

■ The application for leave to appeal was filed on May 18, 2017. A lengthy directions hearing was conducted on May 26, 2017 during which the application was listed to be heard on August 4, 2017. The hearing date was discussed and agreed at the directions hearing. Orders fixing the hearing date were sent to the applicant by express post that afternoon. However, on August 5 2017, the applicant failed to appear. The Court, on its own motion, adjourned the hearing of the application for leave to August 11, 2017. The applicant was contacted by telephone about 11:40 am on August 4, 2017 and advised of the adjournment and the new hearing date. The order adjourning the hearing and fixing the new hearing date was sent to the applicant by registered post. ■ The applicant had ample time in which to retain counsel to appear at the hearing or, at the very least, ascertain when counsel was available so that any application for a further adjournment could be made on an informed basis. However, he left it until the day of the hearing to make any inquiry of counsel. The Court was left in the position of having no idea when the application, if adjourned, might be able to be heard. There was no indication when the applicant’s barrister might be available. Indeed, there was no guarantee

that the barrister would be available at all. ■ Having regard to the opportunities the applicant had had to organise representation and his failure to give any explanation of why he had not done so, along with time that the Court had already spent waiting for the applicant to put his house in order, the uncertainty about how long the adjournment would need to be and, indeed, whether an adjournment would serve any useful purpose at all, the adjournment was refused. ■ I note, in regard to the applicant putting his house in order, that he has had the assistance of the Court’s Self-represented Litigants Coordinator, including guidance with respect to preparation of the documents for his application. He has been given every possible assistance by the Court and he has had, on his own evidence, advice from experienced and competent counsel. ■ The applicant made much of the fact that he was not able to obtain audio discs of the Tribunal hearing. He blamed the Court for this. I do not understand the applicant to have given that as a reason for an adjournment, but I would not, in any event, grant an adjournment for that reason. Having regard to the single ground of appeal raised in the Amended Originating Motion, the transcript and/or audio discs of the Tribunal hearing were not required to decide the matter.

Local History

Tiger Moth lands at Flowerdale ● From The History of Flowerdale, compiled by Gaye Hine (1992) MEMORIES BY MARY MILDREN (McVEAN) - Continued ■ One of the highlights of the early 1940s was an emergency landing of a Tiger Moth plane on ‘Rowe’s Flats’, just north of the school. This caused great excitement. Another was a fire which started Christmas Day in 1951 in our hay shed and burnt rapidly over tinder dry paddocks towards the forestry area but was stopped 50 metres from our boundary. During the war there was an Italian Prisoner-of-War Camp at Kinglake West and occasionally prisoners became lost and had to be returned to camp. Big changes came when the Byrnes subdivided their land into weekend home sites, closely followed by Dick Frey doing the same. I remember a lot of resentment over these plans, but to no avail. These subdivisions changed the face of the Valley from a quiet rural area to semi suburbia, as it is today. The King Parrot Creek used to be quite a large rushing stream and obviously not large enough for the population of today. During the war years, the local postmasters were issued with charts of aeroplane descriptions - our own and enemy planes. The children of the Post Office became quite expert in identification and passed their expertise on to the other school children. All commubnities formed their V.D.C. - Voluntary Defence Corps., Australia’s equivalent of Dad’s Army. Every Sunday the members and families would meet - usually at Glenburn. While the fathers practised playing soldiers, the women and children prepared a picnic lunch and a general get together and social outing. The maintenance of the school grounds seemed to be the responsibility of the School Committee. This body of parents planted trees, built the shelter shed and fixed fences. All children werte taught to swim and summer afternoons saw teacher and children heading for a large pool in our part of the creek with a few parents to assist as life savers. My father had to fish Marjorie Moore out ionce when she nearly drowned. During 1937-38 there was a serious polio epidemic and a lot of schols were closed for three months to try and stop the spread of this disease. If strangers appeared in the district we were forbidden to go anywhere near them. I had left the district when the State Electricity came. We had installed our own lighting plant in 1937 when our house was built. THE CURLING FAMILY Ray Curling came from Western Australia near Perth. He came to Victoria with his family when his brother won a scholarship to Melbourne University. Ray, who was interested in art and studying to become an artist, joined the Air Force in 1940 and got his wings at Somers. He was sent to England to become a bomber pilot based at Milden Hall.

In more recent years, social gatherings included darts competitions, hookey, pool nights, Monday night talent quests, ladies nights, a supper night to watch Lionel Rose win the world bantam weight title on TV in 1968, Thursday night cards, and so on. Mollie Casper hosted the first Red Cross meeting of the Flowerdale Branch at the hotel in 1970. During the bushfires of 1969, the hotel remained open all night, supplying sandwiches and refreshments to the fire fighters. Mrs Casper remembered business being brisk during her time in the hotel. Christmas saw two sittings for dinner. Easter was a busy time and the many camnpers along the creek at holiday times brought good business. Still the centre of the Flowerdale community life, the hotel was extended and boasts motel facilities and a large reception room appropriately named the ‘Peterson’ room. As well as some of the aforementioned entertainment such as darts and pool, the Flowerdale Hotel provides ongoing entertainment for the district with bands, country and western festivals, and caters for dinner dances and all kinds of receptions.

There are many memories of dances in the hall which ran from 8pm until 12 midnight. The pianist on many occasions was Mrs Moore. The copper would be boiled outside for tea or coffee and for many years the Rowe’s dairy supplied skim milk for the coffee. One night the organisers took half a billy of cream by mistake, resulting in very rich coffee and a reduced cream cheque for the dairy. In 1952, after one such dance, Mrs Joan Curling remembered being awoken by phoen to be told that the old hall had burnt down. The community quickly formed a committee to raise funds to replace the hall. Continued Next Page


Page 54 - The Local Paper - Wednesday, September 13, 2017

www.LocalPaper.com.au

Local History ● From previous page Some members of the committee were Bonnie Byrne, Ray Curling and Lil Rowe. Gerald Tehan acted as guarantor for the committee who received a dollar-for-dollar government grant for the rebuilding. Many functions were held to raise funds and at that time funds from events such as Annual Easter Sports were donated to the hall rebuilding program. The new hall was opened on March 7, 1953. Recent years have seen the hall used for Red Cross meetings, Roycroft auctions, kindergarten, dance classes, aerobics, youth club, school concerts, dinner dances and functions. And whilst it may not have the same atmosphere as the old hall which reverberated to the music provided by Mrs Moore, it serves the community well. ■ Post Office. The Flowerdale Post Office opened in 181 and ran until 1974. It was run by the Blackman/ Cunningham families- Cathryn Blackman married Jim Cunningham. Their son George, who was born in Flowerdale in 1900, married Gladys Stafford in 1926. Gladys came to Flowerdale in 1923 to teach at Spring Valley School. After her marriage to George Cunningham she took over the Post Office and telephone exchange. This would have been a busy time because she ran the exchange as well as raising her four children, Mary, Cathryn, Carmel and Kevin. Being a manual exchange, and centrally located, calls from Yea to Broadford had to be put through by the Flowerdale exchange, and likewise calls from Petersons or Broadford back to Yea would have to be rung through. Each call had to be accounted for, and accounts and returns completed every month. Mail came from Yea and was delivered by horseback in the early years. It was sealed up with strong and sealing wax which had to be stamped by the Flowerdale stamp. The mail wasw sorted into pigeon holes for customers to collect. The Cunningham family remembers being awoken during electrical storms because the turbulence would drop the shutters and make the phones ring. Somone would have to get tp and re-set the shutters. Mrs Gladys Cunningham also remembered being called upon by a prison escapee one day. Although he didn’t hurt anyone, the family was extremely frightened and thankful after he left that the police caught him. Other memories include the regular visits to the area of the cream lorry driven by Mr Higginbotham to collect cream from local dairy farms and other people who milked a few cows. Also the rabbit buyer, Dave Mulholland, called regularly. The Flowerdale Exchange closed in 1970 with the advent of automatic telephone lines. The Post Office closed in 1974. ■ Hazeldene Store. The first store at Flowerdale was opened by Mrs Tree during the 1930s. Mrs Tree set up a shop in part of her house, selling items such as cigarettes, fish bait, sweets, etc. The house is situated at Hazeldene, over the bridge beside the existing shop. It is now a little pink cottage.

The younger children had to be assisted getting off their horses once having arrived at school. I remembered often being first to arrive at school and having to ride on to the nearest house, a distance of about 600 yards, where the Fogarty family lived and a member of that family would come to my rescue by lifting me off my horse. Further assistance was required unsaddling the horses and again of an afternoon when it came time to go home. Assistance from the older children was required to catch, bridle and saddle the horses again. During the winter months riding to and from school in heavy rainfall was a little unpleasant. Possibly more unpleasant was riding to school in the mornings when heavy white frosts were evident. Chilblains used to develop on the ears, fingers and toes. One unusual sight during the trip to or from school in those early days was the old swagman known as ‘Old Mary’ who used to walk the roads. When it came time for her to bed down for the night she would look for the nearest big hollow butted gum tree just off the roadside and there she would stay. An Indian hawker, ‘OLd Jet’ by name, travelled the roads with horse drawn wagon selling clothing, materials, and other associated bits and pieces to the farmers’ wives. WHEN THE S.E.C. CAME TO FLOWERDALE ■ Electricity in the form of power from the S.E.C. (State Electricity Commission) did not come to Flowerdale until as recently as 1964. Most people in the area had their own power plants well before this time and so it seems that the majority of the population were not really interested in outlaying large sums of money for a service that felt they already had. The S.E.C. developed a self-help scheme, whereby all property owners (either house or land owners) had to contribute towards getting the power to Flowerdale. This money was then deducted from their future power bills. A dance was held to celebrate the switching on of the lights at Flowerdale and Mrs Kathleen Byrne was asked to switch on the button. TRANSPORT THROUGH FLOWERDALE ■ During the 1930s, Rowland’s bus ran from the Kinglake West Store to Flowerdale, collecting passengers for a trip to Whittlesea or Melbourne. Intending passengers had to ring up and book a seat. If there were only a few bookings Mr Rowlands would use his car. During the War when there was petrol rationing, the bus service only ran to Whittlesea. A train to Melbourne could be caught at Whittlesea. Another bus service during the 1920s was from Mansfield was run by Mick Malouf, through Yea down to Lilydale, but occasionally this tok the route through Flowerdale. One of the drivers of this service was the now famous Reg Ansett, who later drove his own Studebaker through Flowerdale to a depot at the top end of Elizabeth St. Transport for stock was provided in the 1920s and 30s by two contractors, H. Meehan and H. Broome from Flowerdale to Newmarket sale yards. Frank Keays also provided transport early in the 1920s to Broadford Railway Styation, and later in the 1940s and 50s to Newmarket.

first quarter and when they both settled the game was a beauty. Loz and Cin were in a tight battle down back and they both got crucial hands to ball when Yea needed it most. Rachael's defensive work at WD was rugged and fierce and she forced the Rebels to make a change at quarter time, but they led the Tigers by two at the break. Loz took a brilliant intercept to start the second quarter but it was Alex who took a strangle hold on the game in the first 10 minutes, capitalising on the simple errors Yea were making. The Rebels got out to a six-goal lead before a crucial turnover got the Tigers one back and they were able to reduce the margin to three at the main break. Yea produced a ripper third quarter, knowing that once they regained the momentum they could swing the game in their favour. The changes up in the midcourt proved effective and with Chelsea's fresh legs at WD, the Rebels were on the back foot. Full court defensive pressure resulted in Reggie, Kate, Chels, Cin and Loz getting intercepts and deflections which propelled Yea into attack where they were able to level and eventually take the lead by one goal at three quarter time. The last quarter was a real test of nerves and control and Yea produced the goods early, slotting early goals to have a handy 4-5 goal buffer for a good part of the quarter. Rhiannon continued to provide a wonderful target at GS and Kate and Reggie continued to build on their circle edge combination and their movement of the ball and delivery into the goal circle was spot on. With three minutes to go, Alex gave it one final attack, creating a couple of costly turnovers and shooting truly. With under 30 seconds to play Alex reduced the lead to just one but it was all too late and Yea were triumphant. The Tigers face the minor premiers Belgrave in the big game this weekend and with the work rate and team work of this Yea team over the last month they will be looking to inflict Belgrave’s first loss of the season. Congratulations and good luck girls - you've done everyone proud. Yea 46 def Alexandra 45 Goals: R. Aldous 30, C. Hayes 16 Best: C. Newcomen, R. Aldous, L. Cronk

Belgrave scored the first two goals of the last quarter and it looked like they may run away completely with the game but the Tigers rallied and the seven girls on court lifted their game to finish the game off with their heads held high. Yea produced their highest quarter score for the game and despite going down by nine goals they certainly gave it their all. Despite their disappointment every girl should be mighty proud of what was an excellent season. There was a big list of girls who played DGrade for the season and they should all be commended on the time and effort they gave to the team - well done to Alicia, Amy, Harriet, Ebony, India, Tessa, Rhi, Kate, Leisa, Sarah, Jill and Molly. No team can do it without coaching staff and massive congratulations and thanks to Deb Schickerling and Rhiannon Aldous who were fabulous leaders of the team. Belgrave 29 def Yea 20 Goals: A.

YEA NETBALL REPORT B-GRADE

■ B-Grade produced a mighty effort to win by one goal over Alexandra to progress to the Grand Final next Saturday. Having only met two weeks ago and winning by 12, Yea certainly knew they'd be in for a challenge with the inclusion of the Alexandra GS and the change up the Tigers had to make with Amanda ruled out of the game. Rhi returned from injury and took Amanda's place at GS and soon proved she hadn't forgotten what it's like to be in the shooting circle, slotting her first goal for the game with ease. Both teams played frantically at times in the

D-GRADE

Yea faced the big task of defeating Belgrave on Sunday and despite going down, they really pushed them all the way and fought it out until the end. Both teams started the game nervously but it was Yea who settled the earliest, Sarah, Kate and Leisa all leading the way in defence bringing a steadiness to the Tigers play. Amy moved really well in the goal circle and was well fed by Harriet and Ebony who were making great space in the goal third. It was a tight and low scoring first quarter with Belgrave leading by one. Yea had a great second quarter making great decisions with the ball and really working as a team. Rhi, Tessa and Harriet all ran well in the midcourt and linked up well from defence to attack. Alicia and Amy both provided good front position when possible and used the back space to their advantage in contrast. By half-time the scores were level at 11 apiece. Belgrave came out the better side after the half-time break and put together a string of goals that Yea couldn't stop, no matter how hard they tried. The pressure started to mount and simple errors crept into the Tigers play but they kept attacking the ball and improved as the quarter progressed. India tried valiantly in the centre position and Alicia converted a couple of nice goals. Belgrave by seven at the last change of ends.

C-GRADE

Yea were facing old foe Kinglake in the Preliminary Final on Sunday, desperately wanting the chance to face Belgrave in this weekend's Grand Final. The intensity of this showed in the first quarter as Yea dominated the game from one end of the court to the other. Judy Watts was a fabulous link player in the centre court and Molly Jarvie was outstanding at WA on a rough and annoying opponent. Deb Schickerling and Ruby O'Dwyer were like brick walls; if Kinglake threw it in they bounced it back in strong fashion. Emily Aldous showed the spirit we all like to see at WD and when she's in that frame of mind nothing gets past her. Jess Armstrong and Fiona Purvis moved beautifully in the goal circle and were shooting well and with all this working to perfection the Tigers raced out to a 12-2 lead at quarter time: what should have been a very handy buffer for the remainder of the game. As we all know though 'nothing is impossible' and Kinglake came back in the second quarter and completely turned the tables on the Tigers line up, chipping away at the margin and capitalising when it counted most. When Jess left the court and Kim Slavin replaced her, the Tigers were still winning plenty of the ball but were turning it over as they adjusted to the change in line up. The Tigers really fought out the quarter and still held on to a two-goal lead at half-time. The third quarter was a ripper. Jordan Watts came on with fresh legs and fierce determination as she took on the job in Centre. Combining with her mum and Kim along the transverse line and the goal third, these girls did a great job along with Fiona to get their shots on goal. Kinglake scored off two of Yea's centre passes and consolidated their own all quarter to take the lead to the break by two goals. To sum the last quarter up I would say that seven Yea girls tried their hearts out, taking every knock, contesting every ball, never giving up and working their backsides off for each other. Unfortunately as hard as they tried, luck wasn't in their corner and no matter what they threw at the Lakers they responded on the scoreboard eventually winning the game by seven goals. This wasn't the result the girls desperately wanted but they should all be congratulated on a wonderful season, finishing as minor premiers and always playing with a wonderful attitude. Well done and a big thankyou to Coach Lauren Hearn and her assistant Nikki Watts, both still teenagers but with a wealth of netball knowledge. You should all be proud of yourselves. Kinglake 36 def Yea 29 Goals: F. Purvis 15, J. Armstrong 10, K. Slavin 4. Best: R. O'Dwyer, E. Aldous, F. Purvis - Cindy Hayes

HARNESS RACING REPORT

■ Popular Melton trainer/driver Ken Tippet was in the winners stall at Yarra Valley on Monday September 4, when 4Y0 Rocknroll HanoverInto The Fire gelding Prosthesis greeted the judge in the Yarra Glen Quality Meats Trotters Mobile for TR0 & TR1 class over 2150 metres. Bred and raced by NSW based Brooklyn Lodge Aberdeen Pty Ltd, Prosthesis led virtually throughout from gate three as the warm poleline favourite Breezin Around galloped shortly after the start. Given an easy time, Prosthesis won as he pleased by 15.3 metres in advance of Redason which raced exposed, with Illawong Bliss 2.9 metres away in third place after trailing the winner. The mile rate 2-05.5.

■ Little known Riddell trainer John Heffer scored an upset victory at Yarra Valley, taking the Coldstream Timber Trotters Handicap for T0 or better class over 2150 metres with 10Y0 Wind Cries Maori-Diamond Copy gelding I Am I Cried which paid Supertab odds of $24.80. Driven by Josh Duggan, I Am I Cried having his second outing since January last year, was first out from a solo front line draw, before surrendering the lead to Ghent hitting the back straight on the first occasion. Looking to be under pressure approaching the final bend as the leader kicked clear, I Am I Cried rallied along the sprint lane in the straight to prevail by a nose in a tricky finish from Ghent in a 2-06.4 mile rate. Omy Son (one/one last lap - three wide home turn) was third a neck away. It was I Am I Cried's 3rd victory in 31 outings.

■ Caroline Springs part-owner/trainer/driver Julian Attard's very honest 5Y0 Jeremes JetLavish Franco gelding Franco returned to his best form when successful in the 1650 metre C2 class De Bortoli Pace at Yarra Valley . Beginning swiftly from gate four, Franco assumed control running into the first turn and was never headed, just lasting by a head from Most Happy Cullen which raced outside him in a rate of 1-57.5. Blue Chipped was 3.1 metres back in third place after following the winner.

At Mildura on Wednesday. former NSW resident Brett Cox who grew up through the pony trots, scored a huge victory with 5Y0 Rocknroll Heaven-Lifeinthecountry mare Lifeinheaven in the C1 class DNR Logistics Pace over 2190 metres. Fast away from the pole to retain the lead, Lifeinheaven driven by Brett, ran her rivals ragged, scoring by 7.1 metres from Shark Alert which trailed in a slick rate of 2-04.2. Charlie Knew was third 7.4 metres away after racing wide. Brett is based at Red Cliffs and is building up a handy team. - Len Baker
