■ Murrindindi Shire Council is ignoring the protests of business groups, and will continue its antinative timber harvesting policy. The Alexandra and District Traders and Tourism Association says the Council is “not walking its talk by sitting down and working with gusiness groups to work together to ensure we support our current jobs that keep our towns alive”

its position which calls on local timber harvesting to cease. Last month, the Traders Association and Murrindindi Inc representatives attended a special meeting with Council to voice their concerns. They said that more than 100 local families rely on jobs associated with the timber industry. Council adopted the ‘Central Highlands Statement’at its May meeting, acknowledging that it had not spoken with all stakeholders. Councillors justify their stance by again referring to their ‘Have Your Say’ survey which involved only 11 per cent of the local population. Turn To Page 52

Traders’ statement

■ The Alexandra and District Traders and Tourism Associaton says that Murrindindi Council does not understand business and job creation. ADTTA President Andrew Embling spoke on Monday, following Council’s press statement. “It is most disappointing to read the Murrindindi Shire Council press release regarding their view on the future of forestry in the Shire,” Mr Embling said. “According to their own feedback, in their Council Plan, the community wants economic development and jobs to keep our communities alive. They do not want to see more shops closing and numbers continue to drop at our schools. “It is not a case of jobs versus the environment, with world’s best practice both can support each other. “Sadly, the message is Murrindindi Council does not understand business and job creation,” Mr Embling said.

Yea Community Cancer Charity success at Killingworth Hill ■ From the minute the guests stepped foot in to the incomparable Killingworth Hill Whisky Bar, the ‘bar’ was set. The Yea Community Cancer Charity (formerly the Pink Ball Foundation) inaugural event was a stunning success with the community rallying to support a cause that impacts each of us either directly or indirectly. The Charity, headed up by tireless president Simone Sier, and supported by Sally Pollard and Julie Fishlock, has replaced the original ‘Pink Ball Foundation’ and plans to continue raising funds for local community members diagnosed with cancer, providing a one off payment to assist with initial costs and hope to continue support for hardship cases through-out treat-

ment. The luncheon, dedicated to the memory of Gayle (Stormy) Branch, was the perfect opportunity for the ladies, and gentlemen, to flash a bit of pink for Breast Cancer awareness month. “We are an inclusive charity. Breast Cancer is only one type of Cancer to affect our community and all Cancers will be acknowledged through-out our events.” The Charity can be contacted on email: yeacancercharity@gmail.com or soon via Facebook ‘Yea Community Cancer Charity’ (page pending) Please see below for the listing of our generous donors. - Julie Fishlock

● Each poker machine in this region is responsible, on average, for $109,801.25, in annual player losses. Photo courtesy: ABC

■ Player losses on poker machines in The Local Paper readership area totalled $165.8 million in the past financial year. Official figures released by the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation show that 1510 machines are installed at 27 local venues. Total annual gaming machine expenditure in each local municipality is: ■ Mansfield. $1,619,488.47. ■ Mitchell. $17,356,249.50. ■ Murrindindi. $1,433,765.85. ■ Nillumbik. $8,298,522.61. ■ Strathbogie. $1,219,972.05. ■ Whittlesea. $106,994,642.75. ■ Yarra Ranges. $28,850,082.90. “Net EGM expenditure is the total amount lost by players,” notes the Commission reports. The City of Whittlesea leads the way on poker machine player losses with an extraordinary $106.9 million. This represents a daily loss of $293,136 in the Whittlesea municipality. It is the sixth highest losing local government area across the 70 Council districts in Victoria that allow the machines. It represents a loss of $680 per adult in the City of Whittlesea.

Little cash goes back to the community “Millions of dollars from poker machine revenue is supposed to be ploughed back into local communities, but a Monash University report has found that less than 3 per cent of that actually turns up,” says the ABC. “In Victoria, club pokie venues are required to submit an annual community benefit statement, which demonstrates that they have provided at least 8.3 per cent of their pokie revenue to community purposes,” say Monash University academics Charles Livingstone, Louise Francis and Taylah Wynen. “ If they do this, they get a reduction of 8.3 per cent on the gambling tax they pay, compared to hotel venues." ““When we see clubs in particular say that somehow paying the wages and superannuation and for the TV and the gas bill is some sort of community benefit – I mean it would be laughable if it wasn’t so serious,” Mr Livingstone told the Bendigo Advertiser earlier this year. “Dressing up very, very minor contributions made by clubs [as a community benefit] does all of us a major disservice and is effectively a legitimisation exercise and an alibi used by the clubs to justify the harm they impose on the community.”

■ Murrindindi Shire has just one venue where poker machines are allowed. The Rubicon Hotel at Thornton has 25 machines, with $3928 lost by players each day in the 2016-17 year. A total of $1,433,766 was lost by players during the year; an average of $57,351 per year. The ‘loss per capita’ across the municipality is $128 per adult, based on latest adult population statistics. The Murrindindi Shire is ranked 67 of the 70 local government areas in Victoria for poker machine losses. But that does not mean that Murrindindi residents do not travel to Mansfield, Seymour, Lilydale, Whittlesea to play the machines. The City of Whittlesea has 10 venues where 711 machines are available to play. Locations include Bundoora, Epping, Lalor, Mernda, Mill Park, Thomastown and Whittlesea. The Whittlesea statistics are quite different: $293,136 lost daily, $106.9 million lost in the past year, with a loss per capita of $680 per adult. At Yarra Ranges Shire, $79,041 was lost daily, $28,850,082.90 per annum, with loss per capita of $245 per adult. At Nillumbik Shire, $22,736 is lost daily, $8,298,523 over the year, with loss per capita at $171 per adult. At Mitchell Shire, $47,551 is lost daily, $17,356,250 lost annually, with loss per capita at $566 per adult. At Mansfield Shire where there is only vanue at the Golf Club, $4437 is lost daily, $1,619,48 lost annually, with loss per capita at $251 per adult. At Strathbogie Shire, with one venue at the Nagambie Lakes Entertainment Centre, $2242 is lost daily, $1,219,972 lost annually, with loss per capita of $150 per aduly, says the Victorian Responsbile Gambling Foundation.

Ruby’s senior debut ■ Just before the start of the Yea-Avenel BGrade game at The Rec, 14-year-old Ruby O’Dwyer seemed a bit apprehensive about her senior match debut.

Brother Dan (captain) and father Tom were also in the team.

■ Yea trader Ian Findley was organising a letter of concern about Yea Shire Council’s decision ro re-open the Yea Saleyards. Mr Findley said he did not disagree with Yea having saleyards, but the Council should consider locating them outside the residential area.

■ A good word for ... Kellock Lodge, Alexandra, which enjoyed great success with their Open Day on Saturday. Long Shots was impressed with the size of the units - and the modern facilities.

■ A $5000 grant for a ‘Winter Warming’ project was due to go before last night’s meeting of Yarra Ranges Shire, as The Local Paper went to press. A sum of $390,210 was recommended for approval by a panel to 56 applicants, following applications which sought $765,377 in Council hand-outs.

Extra pokies in Whittlesea

■ The State Government will increase the regional poker machine cap in the City of Whittlesea by up to 25 per cent as part of the Gambling Regulation Amendment (Gaming Machine Arrangements) Bill 2017. The decision was made to allow for population growth. Mayor Cr Ricky Kirkham said while it was great the State Government was recognising the growing municipality, more pokies is not what the community was crying out for. “Unfortunately what we need to see to accommodate growth is more investment in family violence services, youth mental health and road infrastructure – not more pokies that harm communities,” Cr Kirkham said. In the 2016-17 year City of Whittlesea residents lost more than $107 million. “Adding more poker machines is only going to increase this loss, leading to more crime and family violence,” Cr Kirkham said. “Poker machines are a scourge on our community and they come at a terrible cost to our residents.” Currently the City of Whittlesea is permitted to have 212 electronic gaming machines. Under the amendment the cap will increase to 411. There are now 110 electronic gaming machines operating in the City of Whittlesea . The Alliance for Gambling Reform, of which Council is a part , seeks regulation of the industry and changes made to ensure that the machines are programmed to offer the user a fair game and not become addictive.

From Our 1937 Files

No new offices yet ■ After correspondence had been dealt with at the meeting of the Whittlesea Shire Council on Wednes day, Cr. Wood moved a motion, notice of which had been given, that the council build shire offices. He was prepared to submit the question to a poll of ratepayers. Something must be done in the near future. Of course, there would be some opposition from Epping, which would say that there was a shire hall there, but that would entail much travelling for officers and councillors themselves would not wish to go there. A proper shire office would also be much more convenient for the ratepayers. A building of three rooms 30 ft by 30 ft could be put up for £450, which would only cost £450 for one year.

300 attend ball ■ What must be regarded as the classic event of the dancing calendar in the Whittlesea district, the Annual Parish Ball conducted by St. Peter's Church, Epping, never fails to attract a large crowd. This year, the event again proved as popular as even and over 300 dancers visited 'Wayside House, Wollert, on October 6. Visitors from the city, Research, Diamond Creek, Donnybrook and the surrounding districts helped to swell the throng.

Alexandra cricket ■ The District Cricket Association will consist of eight teams this season - Alexandra No. 1, No. 2, and No. 3, Marysville, Taggerly, Thornton, Eildon Weir, and Buxton. Mr. M. Stevenson has been re-elected president of the Association and Mr. Bert. Payne hon. sec. The opening matches will be played on Saturday.

Scouts concert ■ To raise funds for the new scout hall in Greensborough the local troop gave a concert in the All Saints parish hall, Greensborough on Saturday night. The scouts and cubs are to he congratulated on the success of the effort which was financially successful. The Misses M. and N. Boell, of Greensborough, recited whilst the cubs performed as 'Ten Little Nigger Boys." "The Good Companions" mouth organ band from Heidelberg, were well received.

Gobur Euchre ■ A very successful euchre and dance was held in the public hall, on Friday, October 8 , to aid the Gobur Rifle Club. Alarge number played cards until 10.30 p.m., after which dancing continued until 3 a.m. Mr. Colin McKenzie and Miss H. S. Smith were the winners of the euchre. Messrs. Brooksbank andJ. Harrisplayedbright and snappy music.

Table tennis Alexandra-Yea District Tennis Association. A meeting of delegates was held on 11th inst. The clubs represented were Alexandra (two teams), Yea, Kanumbra, Thornton and Taggerty. The Yea delegates intimated that their club bad decided to enter only one team only for this year. Mr. A. Eunis was re-elected President and Mr. W. R. McColl Secretary. It was decided to commence matches on Saturday, October 30. Great satis faction was expressed at the entrance of Kanumbra to the association.

Ball at Taggerty ■ For many years a ball has been arranged for annually at Taggerty, in aid of the Alexandra' Hospital and this year the function was held on Friday last. As usual, it proved highly successful and enjoyable. There was a splendid attendance of local and district residents, together with quite a number of visitors who were staying at Buxton and Marysville. Alexandra was hardly as well represented as usual - due to the fact that the Light Horse ball was being held at Yea the same night.

The Yea Story: Part 20

Councils go to war over bridge From The Story of Yea by Harvey Blanks ■ Such was the state of the Shire when local government came to Yea. There was a bridge over the Muddy Creek at Yea, and also a few rough bridges over some minor creeks, mostly built by local stationholders to provide access to their properties. For these bridges and all the roads the new Board became responsible. So rough and uncertain were the roads that the Board had to instruct its engineer, as one of his first duties, to blaze the trees along the Tallarook route from Yea to King Parrot Creek so that people would be able to find their way. During the first few winters of the Board’s existence it found itself compelled to wage a constant battle to keep the streets of Yea passable to traffic. One of the town’s storekeepers, Mr E.S. Purcell, was given permission to dig loads of gravel from the town’s gravel pit to dump into the swampiest parts of the streets, and the engineer was instructed to give high priority to a urvey of the town and to a plan which would present “the most economical way to carry the surplus water off the streets, so that each street will carry its own portion of water”. Several dray loads of gravel were also dumped outside the small hut on the north side of High Street, which was being used as Yea’s first school, the original teachers being a Mr and Mrs Savell. Fears had been expressed that otherwise children might drown in the “slimy lake” which lay outside the school hut. Later, when a church had been built, the school was shifted to the new building. Because of the flooding of creeks and rivers in winter, carriers and coaches were frequently marooned in the township for days on end. This provided good business for the hotels, but annoyed the travellers - especially when the Board’s zealous pound-keeper, Edward Smith, impounded their horses which been put out to grass on the town common. Their complaints led to the Board instructing the management committee of the common not to lock up the horses of travellers who had been detained because of floods. Shortage of adequate bridges generally caused the Board a perpetual headache, for ratepayers north of the Goulburn were almost completely cut off from access to Yea township. There was a privately owned ferry at Molesworth, built and operated by John Sloan and his brother-in-law, usually referred to as ‘Sloan’s punt’ (it gave its name to the Punt Inn), and the Board spent several years delicately negotiating to buy it from Sloan who was, of course, the Board’s first Chairman. But other ferries were obviously necessary, as no money was available for the more satisfactory alternative of building permanent bridges. So very early in its life the Board set aside £25 for the provision of a punt over the Goulburn at Ghin Ghin and also called for tenders for the provision and operation of a toll ferry at the junction of the Goulburn River and Muddy Creek. But, because of the hilly nature

Toward the end of 1871, the Board up the valley of the Goulburn from the coming year. The new chairman, Mr J.W. finally received approval of its plans Tallarook’. On September 7, 1870, the Board Cairns, together with two other Board for the bridge over King Parrot added to its estimates for the year members, Messrs J.D. Webster and Creek on the Tallarook road, and on £100 for the road to Tallarook, £300 Daniel McLeish, were appointed as January 31, 1872, accepted W.G.

Miller’s tender to build it for £1600. It immediately struck trouble from the Broadford Road Board. “We have received a threatening letter from the Broadford Board,” Yea wrote the Commissioner of Roads and Bridges, “to the effect that they will prevent us building the bridge at the junction of the King Parrot Creek, a tender for which we have accepted and the work commenced, and we urge the Honourable the Commissioner the necessity of grantingt to us that portion of the Broadford District we have applied for”. Seymour Shire Council was also informed that work had begin, and was urged to put its section of the road in order “as we expect to have the Bridge finished in time for the opening of the railway”. Battle was now joined in earnest with the Broadford Road Board. Yea sent a petition of ratepayers to the government urgingf the excision of the ouylying portion of Broadford’s district which bordered upon the bridge area, and its annexation to the Yea and Seymour districts. The aid of Seymour and Alexandra Shire Councils was enlisted “in resisting the action of the Broadford Road Board in their attempt to close the road upon which this Board is now expending £1600”. Broadford’s intimidation also apparently extended to the contractor building the bridge, for in March 1872, Yea decided to assume responsibility for any action which the Broadford Board might take against Mr Miller. Deputations to the government from Yea were so frequent at this period that Board members spent as much time in Melbourne as tehy did on their properties. They were also expensive: Messrs McLeish, Webster and Grant were paid £5 for every visit, and Board staff members were paid £2 bonus for the long extra hours they spent preparing ammunition for the deputations. While work proceeded apace on the bridge, Broadford Council refused to do any maintenance on the road to the west of King Parrot Creek; so that it rapidly became impassable. Yea’s engineer thereford, was to put to work preparing estimates to restore this section of road, which lay in the disputed Broadford territory to which Yea was laying claim. Again, the support of the Hon. Charles Gavan Duffy was sought, and the Board’s most unyielding and irascible member, James Daniel Webster, was appointed a final oneman deputation to the government. Yea won. The bridge was completed, and Broadford lost to Yea and Seymour the part of its territory leading to the bridge. The road to the west of King Parrot Creek was speedily re-opened, and traffic began to flow Yea, Alexandra, Mansfield and Wood’s Point along the new highway to Tallarook. The victory was not quite complete however, for Broadford succeeded in having the opening of the Tallarook railway station postponed, so that travellers using the new road to Tallarook found themselves obliged to go a further nine miles to Broadford if thet wished to avail themselves of the new rail service. ● To be continued next

Honeysuckle works on Yea River ■ More than 95 per cent of plant pest honeysuckle on the Yea River between the Yea township and the Yea Wetlands has now been controlled thanks to efforts by the community, volunteers and the Green Army. Goulburn Broken CMA River Health Officer Kirsten Roszak said this fantastic result was a great example of persistence and coordinated effort. “A community survey undertaken a couple of years ago highlighted ongoing concern about the presence of weeds along the Yea River, in particular, honeysuckle,” Ms Roszak said. “Since 2013 weed control works have carried out and we can now see the light at the end of the tunnel. “To make sure we stay on top of this weed, we’re urging landholders to continue to monitor for new growth and carry out follow-up spraying if needed to ensure the investment in control efforts to date are long-term.” Ms Roszak said the local Green Army, coordinated by the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network, had pulled dead vines out of the tree canopy opposite the wetlands and onto the ground to help speed-up breakdown of the vines. “The vines are brittle and dry so this task was quite easy and it should be easy for landholders to undertake too. “Removing the dead vines from the tree canopy also helps reduce fire risk as we head towards summer.” The Yea River project aims to improve the

river’s health and support native fish populations, particularly of threatened species such as the Macquarie Perch, through on-ground works and continuing community involvement. Ms Roszak reminded landholders with river frontage that funding support was also available to protect and enhance the river banks by carrying out revegetation and fencing works. To find out more about Goulburn Broken CMA river health programs please visit www.gbcma.vic.gov.au or phone 5736 0100. This work is funded as part of the $222 million investment announced by the Victorian Government for Water for Victoria, a plan to improve the health of the state's waterways and catchments over the next four years. - Contributed

US book launch for Les Twentyman

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

More Shut-Eye ■ A "catastrophic sleep-loss epidemic" is causing a host of potentially fatal diseases, a leading expert has said. In an interview with the Guardian, Professor Matthew Walker, director of the Center for Human Sleep Science at the University of California, Berkeley, said that sleep deprivation affected "every aspect of our biology" and was widespread in modern society. And yet politicians and employers were not taking the problem seriously, with a desire to get a decent night's sleep often stigmatized as a sign of laziness, he said. Electric lights, television and computer screens, longer commutes, the blurring of the line between work and personal time, and a host of other aspects of modern life have contributed to sleep deprivation, which is defined as less than seven hours a night.

Mouth That Roared

■ It was a glittering affair in the Australia Board Room at the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Suites for the book launch of Les Twentyman's book, The Mouth That Roared. Les told some stories from his book, which captivated the sell out audience. Stories of Les's connection with Homeboy Industries here in Los Angeles who raise funds to help former gang members and previously incarcerated men and woman turn their lives around. Les takes these good deeds back to the western suburbs of Melbourne to improve conditions for the youth who need to find some solid ground. Les's book sold out on this special night in L.A. as it has been doing in bookstores around Australia. The book has been entered for two awards: the Walkely nonfiction, and the Victorian Premier Literacy Awards.

Comings and Goings

Playboy’s playboy dies ■ Playboy tycoon Hugh Hefner's rise to become one of the world's most famous men began with a heartbreak that tore his life apart. The glamour magazine's owner, who died last week at age 91, became known as a serial ladies' man during a career that lasted 64 years. But it was the betrayal a young Hefner suffered at the hands of his first wife that marked his formative years and one that he went on to describe as "the most devastating moment" of his life. He married Mildred Williams in 1949 in the belief the pair had 'saved themselves' for one another. The couple had met at college in the mid 40s. Little did Chicago-born Hefner know that his beloved Milly had slept with another man while her beau served in the US military during the Second World War. Explaining his heartbreak, he said: "I think the relationship was probably held together by two years of foreplay. "That wasn't unusual for our time. In fact, most of my immediate friends didn't have sex until they married. Milly and I had it just before. "I had literally saved myself for my wife, but after we had sex she told me that she'd had an affair. That was the most devastating moment in my life.”

● Pictured at the book signing was Ramada Plaza and Suites Managing Director, Alan Johnson, who presented a special 'Ozcar' award for services to the community to Les Twentyman.

The President is Missing ■ Showtime is set to turn an upcoming novel written by Bill Clinton and James Patterson into a TV series, the network has announced. The novel, titled The President Is Missing is due for publication in June 2018 and the network has beat out other film studios and networks to acquire the rights. Described by Showtime as the "startling story" of a sitting US. president's disappearance, the bookmarks the first time a former US president has co-authored a thriller. The series will be Clinton's first book-to-screen adaptation after writing three books since his departure from the White House in 2001. Details on the plot are scarce, but a statement announcing the joint effort back in May promised "insider details that only a president can know." "Though fictional, the story brings to life the pressures and realities of the most important position in the world."

GDP Jumped to 3.1%

■ The US economic output grew at an annual rate of 3.1 percent this spring, the highest growth since 2015, according to new Commerce Department figures for the second quarter. However, growth is expected to slow dramatically after the string of fierce hurricanes that slammed Florida, Texas, and Puerto Rico, with economists predicting that storm damage could cause Gross Domestic Product to fall by as much as 1.2 percentage points for the third quarter.

‘IT’ - a hit

■ "IT" has become a bona-fide phenomenon since its debut on September 8, breaking all box office expectations and shattering records left and right. For New Line and Warner Bros., it's surely been nothing but celebration. Today the two studios have announced the release date for the sequel to IT as September 6, 2019, where it will debut in regular theaters and IMAX screens (for those who like to be even more terrified). The movie has revived a sluggish summer box office, and continues to put up big numbers, as it becomes the highest-grossing R-rated horror movie in the US ever.

Costly imports ■ The population of illegal immigrants and their kids is costing American taxpayers $135 billion a year, the highest ever, driven by free medical care, education and a huge law enforcement bill, according to the most authoritative report on the issue yet. And despite claims from pro-illegal immigration advocates that the aliens pay significant offsetting taxes back to federal, state and local treasuries, the Federation for American Immigration Reform report tallied just $19 billion, making the final hit to taxpayers about $116 billion. The costs, at over $88 billion, are ravaging state and local governments. The federal government, by comparison, is getting off easy at $45 billion in costs for illegals.

Jay-Z too cool

■ Jay-Z apparently won't be following in the footsteps of his wife, Beyoncé. Or those of Bruce Springsteen, Katy Perry, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga and the numerous others who have performed during the half-time show at the Super Bowl. According to a report by the Source earlier this week, the superstar rapper was offered the prestigious gig at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota on February 4, but turned it down.

■ British actor Colin Firth says he has taken Italian citizenship as a "sensible" move amid global political uncertainty. Firth, who is married to environmentalist Livia Giuggioli, says he has become a dual UK- Italian citizen, and his wife is applying for British nationality. Their two sons already have dual citizenship. In a statement, the 57-year-old Firth said he and his wife had never thought much about their different passports, "but now, with some of the uncertainty around, we thought it sensible that we should all get the same." ■ Gary Oldman has secretly tied the knot for the fifth time. The Darkest Hour star has married writer and art curator Gisele Schmidt. Oldman who plays British World War II Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill in his new movie wed Schmidt at the LA home of his manager and Darkest Hour producer Doug Urbanski just before they headed to the Toronto Film Festival earlier this month.

Movies, DVDs with Jim Sherlock, Aaron Rourke What’s Hot and What’s Not in Blu-Rays and DVDs FILM: MY COUSIN RACHEL: Genre: Mystery/Drama/Romance. Cast: Rachel Weisz, Sam Claflin, Iain Glen, Holliday Grainger. Year: 2017. Rating: M. Length: 106 Minutes. Stars: ** Verdict: A young Englishman plots revenge against his late cousin's mysterious, beautiful wife, believing her responsible for his death, but his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms. Effective slow burning mystery-romance directed respectfully by Roger Michell (Notting Hill) from the classic novel by Daphne Du Maurier (Rebecca, The Birds) succeeds most in part to strong performances, most notably Rachel Weisz as the mysterious Rachel, sparkling cinematography, beautiful filming locations, solid production design with excellent costume design and period detail. Originally filmed in 1952 starring Olivia de Havilland and Richard Burton, and again as a Mini-Series in 1983 with Geraldine Chaplin, its only major flaw is lack of emotional grip, especially following the more effectively compelling and similarly themed "Lady Macbeth." Nonetheless, for fans of period dramas, and admirers of the works Daphne Du Maurier, then this is guaranteed not to disappoint. FILM: DETOUR: Genre: Thriller. Cast: Tye Sheridan, Bel Powley, Emory Cohen, Stephen Moyer. Year: 2016. Rating: MA15+ Length: 97 Minutes. Stars: ***½ Verdict: A young naive well-to-do law student blindly enters into a pact with a volatile low-life grifter and his reluctant girlfriend who offers to kill his stepfather, whom he feels is responsible for a devastating car accident that sent his mother into a coma, so they head of to Las Vegas to complete the deed. The less said about the plot the better for this relatively effective low budget genre homage influenced by the classic film noir thrillers of the 1940s and 1950s, most notably the 1945 classic of the same name, but not a remake, with a touch of Alfred Hitchcock's spellbinding 1951 classic "Strangers On a Train." Solid performances from Tye Sheridan as the vengeful law student, Emory Cohen as the killer-for-hire and Bel Powley as the "femme-fatale" girlfriend, this stylish, smartly constructed and well paced B-movie exploration. Though uneven in parts, interest and tension remains high as the plot twists and turns unfold throughout in this crackling little teen neo-noir "road-movie" thriller thanks to writer-director Christopher Smith, and is a journey well worth taking, especially for fans of the genre. FILM: CHICKEN PEOPLE: Genre: Documentary/Comedy/Family. Year: 2016. Rating: TBC. Length: 107 Minutes. Stars: ***½ Verdict: Chicken People is a funny, quirky, or clucky, and uplifting documentary, not mockumentary, look at the world of show chickens and the people who love them. Starting at the largest national poultry competition, likened to the Westminster Dog Show for chickens, Chicken People follows three top competitors over the course of a year as they grapple with life's challenges while vying to win the next year's crown. Both humorous and heartfelt, this is a delightful little documentary that is sure to bring a smile to your face.

■ This is the story of Margaret Middleton who was born in Canada and became the beautiful Hollywood film star Yvonne De Carlo. Margaret Yvonne Middleton was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in 1922. Margaret was an only child and was only three when her father abandoned his family. Her mother went back to live with her parents and Margaret grew up in her grandparents’ home. At the age of 10 she was taking dancing lessons and in her teenage years took part in beauty contests. She was working as a dancer in Los Angeles when she was arrested and deported back to Canada. A showman sponsored her and Margaret was allowed to return to the US to work. She was spotted singing in a nightclub and signed to Paramount Studios and a backup for Dorothy Lamour. Margaret started working as an extra in films in the early 1940s. She changed her name to Yvonne De Carlo as Yvonne was her middle name and De Carlo was her mother's maiden name. Her first starring role came in 1943 when Yvonne was cast in The Deerslayer and played opposite Larry Parks. The following year she was chosen for the lead role in Salome, When She Danced. Y vonne was signed by Universal Studios and made many films during the 1940's.

Whatever Happened To ... Yvonne De Carlo

By Kevin Trask of 3AW and 96.5 Inner FM

She felt typecast and had a major breakthrough as a dramatic actress in Criss Cross in 1949 starring opposite Burt Lancaster. In that film Tony Curtis made his first on screen appearance in a short dance sequence with Yvonne. Yvonne starred in two British comedy films Hotel Sahara and The Captain's Paradise. In 1955 Yvonne married Bob Morgan and the family consisted of two sons and a stepdaughter. Yvonne appeared in many western films which included Calamity Jane and Sam Bass, The Gal That Took the West, Tomahawk, Silver City, Border River, Shotgun, Passion and Raw Edge. Her favourite screen role was as Sephora,

● Yvonne De Carlo the wife of Moses in the Cecil B. DeMille classic The Ten Commandments. Yvonne was a trained singer with a large vocal range and made several studio recordings. Her husband was a stuntman and sadly lost his left leg during filming of How The West Was Won. Yvonne was broke in 1964 when she accepted the role of ‘Lily Munster’ in the television

ion comedy series The Munsters. She loved working on the series with Fred Gynne and all the cast members. It was a very popular show but it was cancelled after only two seasons. There was a follow up film Munster Go Home. Yvonne De Carlo created the role of ‘Carlotta’ in the Stephen Sondheim stage musical Follies and introduced the song I'm Still Here. In 1972 Yvonne took over the role of ‘Sue Smith’ in the Australian tour of the stage musical No No Nanette when Cyd Charisse had to leave the production. So, Yvonne De Carlo was here in Melbourne at Her Majesty's Theatre working with Bobby Limb, Rosie Sturgess and Jill Perryman. Over the years she was a guest star in many of the popular television series such as Bonanza, Burke's Law, Fantasy Island and Murder She Wrote. In 1998 Yvonne De Carlo moved into the Motion Picture and Television Hospital following a stroke and passed away there at the age of 84 from heart failure.

Ted Ryan’s preview of the Caulfield Cup ■ In early markets for the Caulfield Cup to be run at Caulfield on October 21, the top New Zealand Mare, Bonneval, has gone to the top of the markets in recent times after her captivating win in the Group One Underwood Stakes at Caulfield. She has only had the 10 starts for seven wins and a third, accumulating over a million dollars in stakemoney. Her wins include the New Zealand Oaks and the Australasian Oaks at Randwick, winning in great fashion, scoring by four and a half lengths. Having her first start since April, she rattled home to win the Underwood by a length with a whirlwind finish. Her trainer, Murray Baker, from the shaky isles, knows what winning the Caulfield Cup is all about winning two years ago with his top galloper, Mongolian Khan. Bonneval is certainly the one to beat as was Jameka the mare, who won the Caulfield Cup last year. Bonneval has won five of her races on soft tracks, with four minor placings, while she hasn't raced on a heavy. If she can draw a good gate, she will be the one to beat come Caulfield Cup day. On the next line is the Darren Weir trained Australian Cup winner, Humidor, and International galloper, who has proved his worth since joining the Weir team. Since arriving in the Darren Weir camp he has gone from strength to strength, and is going to be in the firing line for a long time and the 2400 metres of the Caulfield Cup will be to his liking. The David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig trained, Harlem, is next in the market for the Caulfield after a very impressive win in the Naturalism stakes, thus going straight into the Caulfield Cup, as the winner of the race gains automatic selection for the big one. The six year-old international gelding has started 13 times for three wins with three placings. Harlem was most impressive in winning the Naturalism beating the likes of Samovare, Stampede and a pretty good field of middle distance stayers over the 2000 metre trip. When racing in France he was a

Racing

with Ted Ryan listed stakes winner, so a touch of class is there, and he is in the right camp for a crack at the Caulfield Cup and the distance of 2400 metres won't worry him. Top stayer, Hartnell, is being quoted at double figures odds if he starts, it may be that the Godolphin camp may keep him for the Melbourne Cup, when favorite ran third last year to Almandin and Heartbreak City. He is among Australia's top stayers and always puts in, so if he has a crack at the mile and a half Classic he could go close. I would rather have something on him in the Melbourne Cup if he goes round. Last year's Melbourne Cup winner, Almandin, has been nominated, but I feel being Australia's best stayer of the two mile trip he will be kept for the Melbourne Cup come the first Tuesday in November. I am sure his owner, Lloyd Williams, who has already won five Melbourne Cups, would like to make it six, and Almandin appears his best chance. He will carry 4.5 kilos more than last year, but with 56.5 kilos he is not out of it, although eight years of age. But he hasn't many runs over the years. The top New Zealander, Gingernuts, a classic winner, is well suited over the 2400 metres of the Caulfield Cup.

He could be one for the money as he races up on the pace, and that is always a great help in a race like the Caulfield Cup were the pace is on all the time. Another New Zealander who I do like is another Murray Baker trained runner, Jon Snow, a winner of the ATC Derby at Randwick on a heavy track back in April, over the distance of the Caulfield Cup of 2400 metres. He was most impressive winning the J.R.A Cup at Moonee Valley recently proving too strong for Ecuador and Boom Time of 2014 metre at the tricky winding Moonee Valley Circuit. He can sit up on the pace or a bit off them, and is a strong finisher, and his trainer is tops with stayers, as mentioned earlier with Bonneval and having won the Caulfield Cup two years ago. Two others with chances are the top Japanese galloper, Admire Deus, who top jockey, Craig Williams will ride in the Melbourne Cup and most likely the Caulfield Cup if they go that way. Williams is a big rap for the stayer who has class form in his country. Who has been working well at Werribee Quarantine Area, and has impressed track watchers. Of the other Inference who finished sixth in the Underwood, has ability, but the others appear to have him covered.

Country Cups

■ A number of our major Country Clubs are gearing up in the next few weeks for their big Cup meetings and I am rapt again to be a part of the action on the big days. I love this time of the year working for most of the major Country Clubs, the first of these is at Bendigo, although not a Cup Meeting it is run on Caulfield Cup Day, with the day attracting many racegoers to their highly anticipated Beach Wear Day. Only an hour and half from the CBD, the Bendigo Club always put on a great day under the guidance of popular CEO, Aaron Hearps. The fields are always on the quality side and you can enjoy a great day not only watching all the action at the picturesque track at Bendigo, but catching the running of the Caulfield Cup on the big screens and others dotted around the course.

OK. With John O’Keefe Charlie is back

■ Gossip amongst Hollywood scribes is the return of Charlie’s Angels to our movie screens. Charlie’s Angels first hit our TV screens in 1976 , followed by a couple of feature films that each grossed more than $ 250 million worldwide. Sony is stumping up the money for the production slated for release June 2019.

Money please

■ In an attempt to put money in the till, The Ten Network is actively advertising their forthcoming series of Intensify Conferences encouraging advertisers to include Ten on their advertising schedule. To sweeten the pot there’s a swish prestige auto to be won by some lucky guest. Gone are the glory days when TV stations had a waiting list of sponsors begging to get on air.

Amazing life of Cher

■ Cher has led an amazing life and now all her highs and lows are to made into a musical. Concept for the musical was first drafted in 2012 and the reality is scheduled to be performed in Chicago in June, 2018 .

Farewell Chris de Fraga

■ Sad to see in last week’s issue the report of the death of Chris de Fraga, the long time motoring editor of The Age. After quitting the grind of daily press Chris turned freelance and became 3AW’s Motoring Man, plus contributing to a variety of automotive media. A talented writer and a charming man .We’ll miss your company , Chris.

Beware of scammers

■ The Australian Taxation Office is providing taxpayers with simple ways to protect themselves from scammers as part of Stay Smart Online week. Assistant Commissioner Kath Anderson says it’s important for taxpayers to remember to stay vigilant and to help family and friends be wary of emails, phone calls and SMS during tax time that claim to be from the ATO, even if they seem legitimate. “There are a few simple steps taxpayers can take to protect themselves online, including only giving out personal details to people you trust, keeping tabs on your tax affairs so you know what to expect, and to be cautious about personal information that you share, especially on social media.” Ms Anderson said the ATO has been working with a number of organisations including theAustralian Competition and Consumer Commissioner nd major retailers to warn people about buying gift cards.

The first sheepdog trial in Australia was held at Forbes in 1872. The winner was a collie named Kelpie. People were quick to realise the value of bringing together owners and breeders to discuss the training, feeding, care, breeding and development of their working dogs. Today's arena trials test, display and publicise the tasks working dogs carry out on stations, farms and on the road while droving. Because space is limited, three sheep are used in each trial - particularly difficult number to work. At the start of the trial the workers stand at the peg with their dog waiting behind. Simulating paddock mustering, the dog is cast around the three sheep, which are released from the opposite end of the arena on the judge's signal. The sheep are brought to the worker before being worked around the peg, through the gap and race, over the bridge and into the finishing pen. The obstacles are designed to test the strengths and weaknesses of the dog, as sheep do not take kindly to being forced through them. A maximum time limit of 15 minutes is allowed for each competitor to complete the course. Workers are only allowed to assist the dog by voice commands, whistles or signals. Each competitor starts with 100 points and loses points for the sheep straying off the course, lack of force or failing to complete the course.

Mayor Charlie Bisset said Council aging the Central Highlands Forests. “In Victoria, there has been a 25 per cent reduction in the harvest of Mountain Ash (and similar species) from native forests since 2009. “VicForests is now predicting a further 40 per cent reduction in the harvest of Ash timber species will occur between 2017 and 2020-21”, Cr Bisset said. “The VicForests Resource Outlook shows the available timber resources will not support sustained harvesting at current levels in the long term. “It is likely that harvesting volumes in the Shire will decline in coming years. We don’t want to - and simply cannot - ignore this”. “Instead we want to ensure we help support the change that is coming in a way that ensures a secure economic future and jobs in this area and supports the families in our communities. “The Statement calls on investment from State Government to help achieve this. We will shortly be meeting with the Minister for Environment, Lily Ambrosio, and will discuss with her a list of priority projects the Government can invest in to advance this,” said Cr Bisset. ““We know from Council’s ‘Have Your Say’ engagement that people are really keen for us to prioritise economic development and jobs growth in the Shire. “We also heard another message loud and clear – that our communities really value the natural environment,” Cr Bisset said. ● The Local Paper, September 27

COMMENT

■ Murrindindi Council adopted the Management of Central Highlands Forests Statement at its May 2017 meeting. This explanation appears at the Council’s website: “Murrindindi Shire Council is concerned about the impact of current timber harvesting on the landscape, biodiversity and a range of other current and future uses of Victoria’s Central Highlands forests, particularly in the Rubicon Valley. “The Council is also concerned about the future of businesses in the Murrindindi Shire that rely on timber harvesting – an industry in transition. “Following Murrindindi Shire Council’s ‘Have Your Say’ survey, we know preserving the natural environment of the Murrindindi Shire and supporting our economy are top priorities for our communities. “The Council calls on the Victorian Government to: ■ Phase out current native timber harvesting activities in the Central Highlands forests within the Murrindindi Shire, and in particular to cease harvesting in the Rubicon Valley pending resolution of the best approach for the future protection and use of these unique areas; and ■ Invest now to assist in industry transition and ensure that communities reliant on timber harvesting can continue to be part of a thriving economy in the future, including transition to alternative, plantation-base timber supply. “The Victorian Government made an election commitment to establish an Industry Taskforce to provide leadership on the future issues facing the forest industry, and protection of our unique native flora and fauna. “There is a lack of clarity about when or if this process will deliver a clear direction for the future of forest management. “The Council calls on the Victorian Government to phase out current native timber harvesting activities in the Central Highlands forests within the Murrindindi Shire, and in particular to cease harvesting in the Rubic on V alle y pending rresolution esolution Rubicon Valle alley of the best approach for the future protection and use of these unique areas” “It is only appropriate that the continued harvesting in the Central Highlands Forests, and particularly current substantial harvesting underway in the Rubicon Valley, cease until a clear future direction for forest management is established. “Council is also opposed to any harvesting in old growth forest and urges the Victorian Government to act quickly to preserve these forests. “The timber harvesting and processing sector is in transition and no more so than in the Murrindindi Shire. “Following the 2009 fires, the available timber resources will not support continued harvesting at the level and using the approaches employed historically. “Murrindindi Shire Council recognises concerns that continuing to do so is causing damage to our environment. “It is also undermining the range of our forests that underpin the economy of Murrindindi Shire and limiting possible alternative uses of forests, including for tourism and recreation purposes. “The last 10 years that has seen a major reduction in the number of timber processing facilities operating in the Murrindindi Shire with a commensurate reduction in employment. “While Council continues to support local businesses involved in timber processing, saw logs are largely transported out of the Murrindindi Shire. “As a result, Murrindindi Shire communities bear the adverse impacts of harvesting activities (for example, impacts on roads and other uses of state forests, visual impacts on the landscape) but do not share fairly in the economic returns. “While change is occurring, currently the timber industry and associated businesses continue to be important employers in Murrindindi Shire. “Timber resources in the region are limited and continued harvesting at current levels will see these exhausted in coming years. “Investing in a new, sustainable future for this region is critical, including a transition to plantation-based timber supply. “Now is the time for the Victorian Government to invest in the necessary transition for this sector, rather than waiting for changes in the sector to impact future options involving alternative forest uses which could assist with this transition and help bolster the local economy. “Murrindindi Shire Council stands ready to work in partnership with a Victorian Government that is ready to invest in a prosperous, vibrant and sustainable region. “Local government has been excluded to date from the process for determining the future management of the Central Highlands forests. This is unacceptable. “Murrindindi Shire Council looks forward to a positive response to its continued efforts to meet to discuss these issues with Victorian Government ministers to advance this critical issue for the future economic prosperity of the Shire.”

Australia's finest tribute to to the old-time mountain music of Appalachia and brilliant exponents of authentic Americana presented with energy and style.

Over September Kinglake Ranges has held a series of children's song writing workshops for our Kinglake Ranges primaryschools. The song writing workshops were developed to offer the children an opportunity to put down in words all that is great about living in the Kinglake Ranges. “It’s time to celebrate all the wonderful things about living in our region and give the children a voice through song,” said a Festicval spokesman. The project involved the local primary schools of Kinglake West, Kinglake Middle, Kinglake, Strathewen, Toolangi and Flowerdale primary schools. David and Merelyn Carter who are known throughout our country as 'Carter & Carter', nationally recognised as Golden Guitar Award winners for their song writing and singing, facilitated the workshops. David and Merelyn are Kinglake residents and were excited to work with primary school children to encourage and develop their interest and skills in music and the arts. The result of the workshop is that each school has written a wonderful bluegrass song with the support of Carter and Carter . - Supplied

YEA TIGERS CRICKET CLUB REPORT A-GRADE

■ Yea's A-Grade cricketers travelled to Avenel on Saturday to kick off the 2017-18 season. Yea won the toss and elected to bat. Yea was off to a good start with Ben Tarran (13) and Cam Armstrong (34) putting runs on the board. Yea struggled to adjust to a up-and-down pitch and fell to a middle order collapse with Matt Lockhart (17) and James Clavarino attempting to stem the tide. Yea were all out for 77. Even with strong bowling performances for Yea's pace attack of Corey Malcom and Aidan McSpeerin, Yea was unable to defend their score with Avenel passing them two wickets down, Cam Armstrong taking the only two wickets. Yea will attempt to redeem themselves this weekend as they take on Kilmore at home. - Darcy Pell

B-GRADE

■ Yea Tigers B-Grade has started its season off in great fashion. After lo sing the toss and being sent into bat Yea started a bit shaky, losing a wicket early on before new comer Ash Cook and captain Dan O'Dwyer steadied the ship. After Ash was dismissed for 16 and shortly after Ben Holman for 3, another new player Michael Waghorn came to the crease and consolidated with O'Dwyer for a great partnership. After Waghorn was dismissed for 24 and O'Dwyer for 52 and some late hitting from Jack Christie, the Tigers were dismissed for 140. Avenel's batting was less than impressive with Yea's bowling been very impressive. Star with the ball was 14-year-old Ruby O'Dwyer in her first B-Grade game claiming the figures 5/21 off five overs.

Other wicket takers for Yea were Lachie Beattie 2/6, Jack Christie 2/18 and Ben Holman taking one wicket. Avenel were all out for 61. A special occassion happened on Saturday with three members of the O'Dwyer family members representing B-Grade. Dad Tom couldn't wipe the smile of his face. - Ryan Akers

for some of the new loads being prepared for the State team competitions. The right to be called top shot proved to a very close match between Geoff James and Norm Linehan, two of the ECDRA’s most experienced shooters. It was Norm with 108.03 who edged out Geoff with a score of 107.02, a very close tussle. Other scores were Chi Somlong shot a 97.04 and Richard Godden with one stage only a 41.01. Next week shooting will be at the Violet Town Shooting Complex for the Dragon Diesel Challenge, shooting will commence at 9am. The Dragon Diesel challenge is always a lot of fun and new shooters are most welcome to join in to contest the fantastic range of trophies provided by the sponsors. - Robert Chaffe

The handicap winner on the day were Brian in A -Grade, nett 71, Jonathan in B-Grade,69 and Terry in C-Grade with nett 70. The daily putting was won by Rob O’Halloran with 25 putts and Brian was NTP on the 2nd. Wednesday, October 4 saw us playing the first round of our club championships which run over four weeks. Sunny conditions obviously suited Vicki Clements as she came in with her best ever score of 86 off the stick – nett 63 to be leading A-Grade. Chris Simmons was runnerup on the day with a nett 69. She leads B-Grade and Sue Aurisch is leader in C-Grade.

EAST CENTRAL DISTRICT RIFLE ASSOCIATION REPORT ■ Saturday October 7, the East Central District Rifle Association Inc. members were shooting at 600yards at their home range at Violet Town and Captain, Marty Kelly made the trip to the Lang Lang range to contest its annual (15 shots at 500 and 600 yards) prize shoot. Marty was keen to test out his wind reading ability on a different range and the discipline of two 15 shot to count shoots. Despite recent experience at the Horsham range where the mirage made sighting very difficult it was nothing to what Lang Lang turned on on Saturday. The warm day exasperated the strength of the mirage and this, combined with a very fickle wind proved to be a test for all shooters. Marty shot 85.7 at 500 and was ranked 12th and then at 600 he shot 86.6 to be ranked fifth along with significant insights into working in conditions where mirage is an issue. Back at Violet Town the conditions were no better including a very sharply changing and unpredictable wind, again. The day also proved to be an ideal test bed

YEA GOLF CLUB REPORT ■ The Men’s Club Championship started at Yea Golf Club on Saturday and a solid field of 22 took part in good playing conditions. It was also medal day and Jonathan Fisher, 15, took the honours with a good score of nett 69. Jonathan was in the early bird group hitting off at 8am in the fog and no one could match his score later in the day. The leader in the championship is Brian Simmons with a round of 80, nett 71, from Gary Pollard on 81. In B-Grade Jonathon is leader with 84 from Greg Clements on 89. The C-Grade leader is Terry Chaplin on 90 from John Anstey and Malcolm Bett on 92.
