■ Douglas Alexander (Doug) Drysdale, late of Glenlinden, Homewood, died on Saturday (May 12). He was 75. He was father of Kelly and Paul, Shannon and Ben, Verity and Troy and Alexander and Renee. Funeral arrangements, in the hands of McCormack's, are to be announced.

Alex. works start ■ VicRoads is set to commence works this today (Wed.) at the Grant St-Downey St intersection at Alexandra, weather permitting. Works will include the removal of turning lines from within the intersection, installation of painted islands to replace the Give Way signs with Stop signs, and the intersection will also get a new asphalt overlay. ‘Stop sign ahead’ signs will also be installed. Speed and lane restrictions will apply during the works.

■ Local school authorities have acted promptly and responsibly to contain a gastro outbreak at Yea Primary. “We have large number of students away with Gastro,” the School advised parents on social media. “The minimum period of exclusion is 24 hours after the last 'incident' “However since we currently have 20 per cent of our students absent with Gastro, we are suggesting that if possible you keep your child home for 48 hours to help stop the spread of infection,” the School said. “At assembly this morning we spoke to the students about the importance of washing their hands before they eat and after going to the toilet in the hope that we can reduce the transmission rate of germs,” the Facebook post said.

NE consultation

■ Indi MHR Cathy McGowan says confirmation of next week’s community consultation on the $235 million North East rail line upgrade is good news for the electorate. “At last we will see community leaders and stakeholders have their say on the schedule of works for the project,” Ms McGowan said. “I am delighted that following my meetings with the offices of the Victorian Premier, Dan Andrews; Victorian Transport Minister, Jacinta Allan; and Federal Transport and Infrastructure Minister, Michael McCormack; as well as V/Line CEO, James Pinder; that the Hume Corridor Passenger Group will be briefed on Thursday, May 24.”

Mothers Day walk for breast cancer research ■ A beautiful sunny autumn day with a cool breeze made walking a pleasure as hundreds turned out to be part of the Mother’s Day Walk in Murrindindi to raise funds for breast cancer research. Every age group was represented as each walked to the level of their ability soaking up the warmth of the sun and being glad of the protection from the cold southerly in the shady spots. It was the perfect finnish in Rotary Parkat Alexandra where the walkers and support people were greeted by a tasty barbecue lunch, with fresh fruit and lots of water. A good sum of money was raised to assist this vital research. Special thanks were given to the organisers and the invitation to be part of this fun day. - Robert Chaffe

● Margie Wright, Marisa Quigley and Sam Wright ■ A Yea Arts event, Red Dress and The Sugar Man featuring Marisa Quigley, was held at the Homewood Hall. The Yea Arts Inc mission statement is to bring a diverse arts agenda to the appreciative audiences in Yea and its satellite communities. The audience arrived to a welcoming Homewood Community Hall attractively lit on a cool night with spot lights and an enticing brazier. Once inside, the 100-strong audience were treated to a dark, emotive story sonorously recited by Marisa Quigley, interspersed with the distinctive music of Tom Waits. Backed by three talented musicians and a harmony singer, Marisa sashayed and sang through her own story of Red Dress and the Sugar Man, a story of the seduction of Rosie by Romeo. After a locally-prepared supper in the adjoining CFA shed, the crowd returned to enjoy a different patter of Marisa's own compositions - a light-hearted and playful connection, interspersed with real life stories from her life's journey. The performance became lighter with the audience loudly joining in. The cool night was warmed by the steamy poetry of Red Dress, the blues/jazz music was Tom's and Marisa's. YeaArts Inc will next bring Dr Crask and his Swingin' Elixir performing cabaret style and inviting audience to get up and dance to swing tunes predominantly of the 1930s and 40s. The Swingin' Elixir will perform at 8pm in the Yea Shire Hall on Friday August 3. Tickets are available at Yea & District Community Bank, High St., Yea or online at www.trybooking.com/381778 Yea Arts is inviting those attending to get a group of friends together and book tables (up to 10 people per table) and arrange to share and enjoy the food you bring from 7pm, before the show starts at 8pm sharp. Yea Arts Inc has arranged for drinks to be available at bar prices. - Alison Huth

Letter to the Editor PO Box 1014, Research, 3095 ■ Editor notes: Last week, The Yea Chronicle and Alexandra Standard newspapers published an anonymous ‘letter to the editor’ which was disapproving of Council critic Jack Russell. In the previous week, The Local Paper had reported that the Council’s legal costs, fighting Mr Russell, were likely to be $80,000.

Russell replies Sir, Re: Anonymous ‘letter to the editor’ (Chronicle, May 9). To the ‘frivolous and vexatious’ individual behind the contribution to the column ‘Letters to the Editor’ of May 9, and who enjoys the ‘notoriety’ of an anonymous sniper, I say that: ■ Courts do not take lightly to any unworthy actions - but based on merit and of strong and long established principles in law. ■ That all (my) matters heard at the lower courts are either quashed, or under Judicial Review and brought to Appeal process and ongoing. ■ That all parties to these actions have equal legal right and with the expectation that justice will prevail. ■ That costs icurred by the opposing parties to these three actions, are not open to abuse and shall need to be justified suchas the two defendants’ barrister and instructing ‘top of the town’ solicitors, whereas I represent myself and take my own advice entirely, and at no cost to the defendants up to and including trial and should the matters be found in my favour, so be it. My advice to the vexatious sniper and who walks the streets and prfers to be anonymous, stay that way as you are ‘known’ as the face of mob mentality and of despicable conduct of the Council type. I enjoy the support of many that are similarly suppressed as such as that of the defendants in their current legal matters, and cannot find the means to bring action against their oppressors. - Jack Russell, Francis St, Yea

■ Evelyn MLA Christine Fyffe raised the question of asbestos discovered at Coldstream, in State Parliament last week. “My constituency question is to the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change. Construction and demolition waste has been dumped near a public waterway in Coldstream,” Ms Fyffe said “Asbestos was discovered during an inspection by the Environment Protection Authority Victoria Melbourne Water have also inspected the site. “The EPA issued a clean-up notice in June 2017. The EPA again inspected the site in January, but it had not been cleaned up. “My very concerned constituents cannot understand why the EPA, who are quick to issue fines for littering, are being so lax with this serious issue. They ask that the minister intervene. “The private property where the waste has been dumped runs behind several houses, and the occupants are fearful of opening the windows,” Ms Fyffe said.

Dementia sessions

■ A quarter of Murrindindi Shire's population over the age of 65. The Council has joineda global movement to develop and maintain ‘Age Friendly Communities’. Together with community and agency partners, Council says it has been working on ways to enhance the lives of older residents in the Shire's communities. General Manager Corporate and Community Services, Michael Chesworth, saidCouncil had been working with its network of local Community and Neighbourhood Houses to deliver a range of social, learning and health and wellbeing activities for older community members. "One really important initiative is the forthcoming Dementia Awareness Program, which involves a series of information sessions around the Shire. "Dementia Australia recorded 278 people living with dementia in Murrindindi Shire last year. And with an estimated growth rate of 4.2 perc ent per year between 2017-2050, it is likely that many Murrindindi Shire residents will be caring for, or have contact with, a dementia sufferer, in the future. So we think it's critically important to start preparing for this issue now," Mr Chesworth said. Three information sessions on dementia will look at different aspects of the disease. In Kinglake on Monday, May 21, the information session will explore how memory works, changes in memory and what to do about memory issues. In Yea on Thursday, May 31, the information session will teach participants how to communicate and interact more effectively with a person living with dementia. At the last session, on Wednesday June 6 in Alexandra, participants will learn how a healthy brain works, what dementia is and why it causes behavioural change.

‘All bark and no bite’: local MP slams Labor ■ Eildon MLA Cindy McLeish says the State Labor Government is “all bark and no bite” when it comes to controlling wild dogs. “Wild dog controllers have been banned from using larger dog control traps due to animal welfare concerns,” Ms McLeish said. “These traps are used to trap wild dogs that viciously maim, disembowel and kill lambs, calves and native fauna.” When asked about the policy in Parliament, Agriculture Minister Jaala Pulford appeared to have no idea the ban, in place since December 30, had been implemented, Ms McLeish said. Ms McLeish said the ban

● Cindy McLeish MLA was foolish and showed the government was not interested in helping local farmers. "Daniel Andrews' city-centric Labor Government is leaving livestock - and farmers' livelihoods - under threat.

"It's no wonder country people feel ignored by Labor when the Agriculture Minister will always go in to bat for the interests of the Greens in Melbourne over our farmers.” Following the election of the Labor Government in 2014, both the Wild Dog Advisory Committee and successful wild dog bounty were removed. Twelve months later the government back flipped reinstating the program. "High country farmers and communities are beyond frustrated at Labor's lack of interest and lack of leadership on wild dog control." "If the Premier won't stand up for farmers and rural communities, the Liberals will," Ms McLeish said.

Budget: bright spots but disappointing ■ Federal MHR for Indi, Cathy McGowan, says the 2018-19 Budget contains some bright spots for the electorate, but there are also some low points. Ms McGowan welcomed the Government’s response to the Independent Review into Regional, Rural and Remote Education that provides $28.2 million over four years for an additional 500 sub-bachelor places at regionally based universities. The Government will improve access to the Youth Allowance for regional students with the parental income cut-off increasing from $150,000 to $160,000. She said a commitment to new rounds of

the Building Better Regions Fund and the Stronger Communities Program would be welcomed by local councils in Indi. “I am pleased the Government will provide $40 million for capital grants to aged care providers in rural, regional and remote Australia and there will be an additional 14,000 new high level home care packages across Australia over the next four years,” Ms McGowan said. “However, I believe they have missed the mark with a rural health workforce strategy that fails to provide money to deliver muchneeded allied health services in small country towns.”

■ There are no local Northern Football Netball League matches this Saturday (May 19). All three football divisions resume on Saturday, May 26. Nor are there any May 19 matches in the Goulburn Valley Football League, Kyabram District Football League or Riddell District Football League.

Editor’s Diary

■ Local Paper reader Peter Rickard has just returned from northern France and Belgium. He thought readers may be interested in the French reaction to the ANZAC Day Dawn Service at Villers-Bretonneux. Peter has sent a copy of the front page of the Courier Picard– a regional newspaper from Amiens, France. The newspaper is normally produced in the French language, however in honour of the 100th commemoration of the liberation of the village of Villers-Bretonneux, the newspaper produced an English language cover with the normal French language news inside. “The photograph typifies the respect and esteem with which the French people hold dearly the memory of the Australians from WWI,” Peter says. “More than 700 individuals including the school-children from Villers-Bretonneux took part in the creation of this memorial to the Australians. “Moreover, the school at Villers-Bretonneux is itself a living memorial to Australian soldiers and their extraordinary and gallant deeds on the night of April 24 and throughout April 25. “To visit Villers-Bretonneux both on the day before and on ANZAC Day, one was rewarded and accorded great affection and respect. “Where else would one proudly witness, the Australian flag flying in the front gardens of private houses, draped in shop windows and hanging from all sorts of vantage pints in the streets surrounding the VB School and from flag poles in front of the municipal offices,” Peter said. “We pride ourselves in our ANZAC Day commemoration. Here is a perfect example of nonAustralians saying thank you.”

After his return from overseas, Dad had leave before returning to Puckapunyal, prior to a stint at the Army Mechanical and Electrical Work-shops at Bandiana, near Wodonga. Jim Long wrote of his time at Pucka: “The 21 days leave passed all to quickly, and so we were back in camp at Seymour. “We had to await the return of our country and Tasmanian members, so the days were generally passed in route marches and drill. “I remember taking several route marches to the Trawool pub where we rested, pending the long return journey,” Dad said. ■ In the 1990s, Jim Long’s younger son would have to plead guilty to going to the Trawool Hotel for a similar type of “rest”.

Long march to pub Beware of black ice ■ Yea historian Alan Thorley has found a won-

derful old picture of the Trawool Hotel (below). My late father, Jim Long, just prior to his untimely passing in August 1987, penned notes from his World War II military service in the Middle East. See www.Long.com.au

■ The weekend’s icy weather saw ‘black ice’ on the Black Spur, between Healesville and the Marysville turn-off. ‘Black ice’ is also a winter motorist’s problem on the Yea-Whittlesea Rd at Junction Hill. Please take care.

Early days of the Trawool Hotel

■ Yea ratepayers turned out in strength, 30 years ago, in a last-minute bid to halt the local Council from appointing a $46,000 Deputy Chief Executive Officer. “The crowd of more than 200 locals voted to ‘condemn’ the local Council for what was called ‘administrative extravagance’,” we reported. “Shire Engineer, Mr Stan Kisler, was given a unanimous vote of confidence by the meeting.” ■ Only two years later, CEO Peter Mangan left Yea Shire to take up a position at Buninyoung Council. The Yea Shire CEO position was given to his deputy, Garry Cecil, aged just 25.

Manor on market ■ We announced that Yea’s historic Beaufort Manor was to soon be put on the market, and put to auction. Co-proprietor Haydn Dean dismissed a report that the restaurant had already been sold.

Yea HS windfall

■ Yea High School received news of an unexpected $100,000 windfall from the Ministry of Education. The cash grant was earmarked for completing site works and furnishings at the Indoor Recreation Centre (Community Centre) which had been officially opened in April 1988. ■ The Yea Basketball Association was officially formed. Officials were Bev Naismith, President; Gary Naismith, VicePresident; Jan Beer, Secretary; Trisha Wilson, Treasurer; Richard Ivey, Public Officer for Incorporation.

Fans pleased ■ Football columnist Tom Dignam said that Yea supporters would be pleased about the Tigers 20.13 (133) defeating Tallygaroopna 12.8 (80) in a home match. Yea had a shaky 13-point lead at the last change, and the Tigers were made to earn the points. Cecil, Rollason and Cunningham were unavailable for that week’s side. Alan Cassell was recalled to the half-back line. Best for Yea: Lockhart (7 goals), Comerford, Lawley, Barker, Finch, Bryant.

● The original Trawool Hotel dates back to about 1883 when it was owned by J.R. Meagher and was situated on the banks of the Goulburn River, next to the Punt Crossing ocer the river which was operated at that time by Charles Prince. It was described as a feavourite trysting place for visitors sitauted midway between Trawool and Kerrisdale railway stations. It was owned by Mr Jane between 1884-1888 when the land and hotel was taken over by Mr McKimmie. In 1904 it was owned by Peter Meyers until his death in 1918. In 1939 seven rooms were destroyed at the rear when fire swept through the hotel. Photo and research: Alan Thorley, Yea and District Historical Pages

Local Briefs Highway concern

■ The need for traffic lights at Coldstream has been raised in State Parliament by Evelyn MLA Christine Fyffe. “The Andrews Labor Government and VicRoads are again ignoring the calls of the Coldstream community and the Coldstream Country Fire Authority brigade for lights to be installed at the intersection of Killara Rd and Maroondah Hwy,” Ms Fyffe told the Legislative Assembly last week. “I have called for action on numerous occasions both by letter and in this place. The increase in tourism traffic and heavy vehicle traffic makes it dangerous for motorists and the CFA. “Even with their lights on, the CFA are finding that they are delayed by very valuable minutes trying to exit onto Killara Rd. “Mark Varmalis, Yarra Ranges Council environment and engineering director, has said that council has spent years putting requests in and pushing for an upgrade, so I was very pleased that the hardworking Liberal candidate for Evelyn, Bridget Vallance, and the shadow minister for roads and infrastructure met with a number of residents recently at the intersection and have promised to work with the community to get this resolved,” Ms Fyffe said.

$1397 for Legacy

■ District wool producers have contributed $1,397.43 to assist our local Legacy members in caring for the widows and children of our veterans. The funds donated are the proceeds from the sale of fleeces entered into the 2017 Yea Show Fleece Competition co-ordinated by David 'Tex' McKenzie. Legatee Clare Sinclair from Yea thanked the wool producers: "This is a wonderful donation and very much appreciated. Thank you to all those who contributed a fleece." "I would also like to thank David McKenzie. The RSL used to co-ordinate this event. David volunteered some years ago when the RSL was unable to continue and has been a great supporter of Legacy in the years since," Clare said.

Detox your home

■ Murrindindi Shire Council is urging residents to make use of Sustainability Victoria's free 'Detox Your Home' service to dispose of unwanted household and garden chemicals. The 'Detox Your Home' program will be operating in Seymour on Saturday, June 2. The program provides north-east Victorian residents with a safe, free and easy-to-use option for disposing of their common household chemicals. The chemical drop-off program aims to reduce the risk of poisoning, environmental pollution and bushfire hazards, as well as improve recycling rates. Murrindindi Shire Infrastructure and Waste Portfolio Councillor Eric Lording said this is a wonderful opportunity for residents to improve safety in their homes. "It's not just the risk domestic chemicals pose to children and pets, but the risks associated with discarding these products through normal waste disposal means. "It is dangerous to throw chemical products out with your regular rubbish collection as the products could explode, ignite, leak or mix with other chemicals. “Likewise, it's dangerous to pour them down the drain as they would pollute our waterways, which would in turn harm animals and vegetation, contaminate our drinking water supply and make rivers and beaches unsafe for swimming. "So, gather up your unwanted solvents, poisons, fertilisers, cleaning and car care products and drop them off in Seymour on Saturday June 2. It's worth the effort for the safety of your loved ones, plus you'll be protecting the environment," Cr Lording said.

Praise from MLA for sportswomen ■ Female sports people in the Yan Yean electroate have been praised in State Parliament by their local MLA, Danielle Green. “I am delighted to rise today to pay tribute to the female sports people in the Yan Yean electorate,” Ms Green said. “It is going absolute gangbusters. So many young women from the Yan Yean electorate have been part of the extraordinary success of AFL Women’s, known as AFLW. “They include Chloe Molloy, who was the number three pick in the AFL draft and who now plays for Collingwood; Deanna Berry from Whittlesea, who was the number nine pick in the 2016 draft, played for Melbourne in their inaugural game and then was part of the premiership team for the Western Bulldogs; Brittany Boniccifrom Wallan, who plays for Collingwood; and

● Danielle Green MLA Shae Audley from Hurstbridge, who teaches at Laurimar Primary School and plays for Carlton. “Diamond Creek Women’s Football Club, which is a powerhouse of women’s footy and which I have had the privilege

of sponsoring for all my time in this place, had 14 players drafted in the inaugural draft. “Tiarna Ernst, Lauren Morecroft, Millie Barden, Stephanie Chiocci, Lisa Williams, Lauren Brazzale, Alison Downie, Laura Attard, Shae Audley, Christina Bernardi, Stephanie De Bortoli, Jess Cameron, Kirsty Lam and Katie Loynes all played their part. “My neighbour, Kate Moloney, is a true Diamond. She is the captain of the Melbourne Vixens netball team and has represented our country. “Sport is going gangbusters. I encourage the Whittlesea City Council to apply for funding for facilities from the Female Friendly Facilities Fund in the funding round that has recently opened. “We need more female acilities in the Yan Yean electorate,” Ms Green said.

News Briefs Free flu shots ■ Murrindindi Council's Maternal and Child Health Centres will be offering another free immunisation to local children the vaccine to prevent Childhood Influenza. From tomorrow (Thurs., May 17), Council's Maternal and Child Health Centres in Alexandra, Yea and Kinglake will be hosting monthly immunisation sessions to support children's access to the childhood influenza immunisation. Other free government-issued childhood immunisations are also available at these sessions. Cr Sandice McAulay said the Childhood Influenza Vaccination Program is an important public health initiative made possible by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services. "Funding to date has only allowed for the free immunisation of children with known risk factors. However, due to the increasing prevalence of influenza in children without known risk factors, this new program will vaccinate all children between six months and under five years old. "Worryingly, data from Victorian hospitals shows a significant increase in the number of children without any known risk factors being hospitalised with influenza in the last few years. "Childhood influenza is like adult influenza in that it might appear like a common cold to begin with, but for a child it can rapidly develop into a life threatening situation. "Council provides children in Murrindindi Shire with 15 different vaccinations over seven immunisation visits. These immunisations would typically happen between birth and the age of four years old. Immunisation is a proven way to prevent serious and avoidable illnesses. Immunisation sessions will be run at Council's Maternal and Child Health Centres in Yea on the first Thursday of the month from 11am to 1.30pm; in Kinglake on the third Thursday of the month between 11.45am and 1.15pm; and, in Alexandra on the last Thursday of the month between 10am and 11.30am. Parents are invited to discuss their child's immunisation options with their Maternal and Child Health Nurse.

Rail transformed ■ The Hurstbridge railway line has been transformed by recent works, Anthony Carbines told Parliament last week. “A big part of this project was also clearing the bottleneck between Heidelberg and Rosanna, which we campaigned for long and hard. It was a $140 million project in its own right,” Mr Carbines said. “I want to thank the 1000-odd workers who worked through that six-week construction blitz. They included people from the motor vehicle industry transition workforce who have found employment on our projects. “I thank all those construction workers who, day and night, took the time to engage with the community and explain the work that they were doing — they are proud of the job that they did — but also acknowledge the perseverance of the local community. “We are not done yet; there are lots of civil works and rats-and-mice jobs to complete. We will do that in good faith, but it was exciting to be back on the train and knowing there will be two extra peak-hour services in the new timetable from August. “This is transforming the Hurstbridge line for commuters in the north-east. This will add value to people’s commute and value to our communities for many decades to come,” Mr Carbines said.

Volunteer rights ■ Labor has voted down legislation that would see all firefighters given the same access to cancer compensation, according to Euroa MLA Steph Ryan. She says that n attempt by the Liberals and Nationals to introduce presumptive cancer rights for firefighters in Victoria was last week dismissed by the Andrews Labor Government, much to her concern. Ms Ryan is Deputy Leader of the Nationals, as well as being Euroa’s MLA.

What The Papers Say $1 mil. shortfall

■ The proposed Mansfield Shire 2018-2019 budget is unbalanced - in layman’s terms it contains more expenditure than income. In an interview with the Mansfield Courier, council chief executive officer Alex Green revealed that the proposed budget 2018-2019 included revenue from the sale of land in Minerva St, which will not go to sale. Mr Green admitted to the Courier that indeed budget figures include around $1,000,000 for Minerva St, and that the councillors’decision to hold on to the land because of public outcry, meant that this revenue is no longer available. As a result, council will need to slash spending in the budget to make up the $1,000,000 which would have come from the sale. - Mansfield Courier

Full-time ambo

■ A community plea for a full time paramedic officer and ambulance has been heard by the Minister for Health and among the state budget announcements was the pledge for that request. Among funding announced was the $950,000 to Euroa Secondary College for upgrades to the Benalla and Wangaratta hospitals, and the appointment of a full time paramedic for Nagambie. Announcing the Nagambie win, Jaclyn Symes (MLC, Northern Victoria) said a community push to gain at least one full time paramedic had been taken notice of by politicians. “The minister has heard and taken notice and made the decision the time is right to increase this service in Nagambie,” Ms Symes said. “It is fantastic to see Nagambie get its one permanent ambulance and paramedic for this town.” - Euroa Gazette

Bus company grab ■ McKenzies and Martyrs bus services are among a number of locally owned bus companies fighting to retain their assets, and potentially ownership of their companies, under a proposal put by the State Government as part of negotiations of public bus route contracts. The Bus Association Victoria and local operators have accused the State Government of “acquisition by stealth”, claiming all three options offered to them as their contracts come up for renewal involve selling off their assets including buses, staff and intellectual property. Chris Lowe, Executive Director of the BAV, said the government has told nine small to medium family business bus owners out of the 13 that operate in Melbourne that new five, seven or 10 year contracts on offer are contingent upon the companies agreeing to transfer assets on a varying scale. - Mountain Views Mail

Car wash burglary

■ A Craigieburn man has been remanded in custody following a series of burglaries and attempted burglaries of car wash facilities around the Mitchell Shire. A Broadford car wash was targeted at the end of last month, when money was stolen from the coin dispenser machine. Other car washes in Seymour, Wallan and Wandong were also targeted, but no actual entry was gained to these machines, just lots of damage caused. The 19-year-old is facing at least 70 charges which include numerous incidents relating to thefts of power tools and other property from the northern suburbs. - Seymour Telegraph

Parking woes ■ A permit parking scheme in Eltham central will be overhauled, according to Nillumbik Shire Council. Among the 149 Eltham traders, 543 permits were issued for only 141 permit parking bays. - Diamond Valley Leader

Alex. St John

■ A FirstAid class under the auspices of the St. John Ambulance Association is being formed. The fee is 7/6 for the course, 2/6 for the book, and 1/ for the bandage. Intending students are requestedto notify the Rev. G. L. Johnson not later than next Wednesday. Dr. I.H. Cowling is to be the instructor.

Lawyers advise

■ The following general business was dealt with at the meeting of the Whittlesea Council last week: The council's solicitor informed the council that a number of appeals against valuations had been received, but as the appellants had not stated the name of the court before which the appeals would be heard, the solicitor asked the council whether he should send letters to the appellants instructing them of the proper procedure. Cr. Orgill: And we would have to pay the solicitor for sending these letters. The President to interview the ratepayers concerned. On the motion of Cr. McCormack it was decided to see the solicitors for the council to see the position of ratepayers who had not received amended rate notices from the valuer, and had thus been denied the right of appeal.

Merton course opens

■ The official opening of the Merton golf links took place on Saturday. Ideal weather conditions prevaIled and a large gathering of visitors assembled,Amongst the various clubs represented were Kithbrook and Strathbogle. Foursomes were played over 9 holes.

Council blamed

■ There was an attendance of over 40, including residents of Wattle Glen, at a public meeting held in the Hurstbridge Hall on Friday night of last week to discuss further the question of a water supply for the town. Mr. H Bertrand presided and in opening the meeting expressed disappointment that although an invitation had been extended to councillors, none of them, except Cr. Ryan, was apparently interested enough to attend.

Properties not sold

■ The highest offer at auction for Lyndoch Park, comprising 840 acres, about one mile from Whittlesea township was £7/10/ an acre. This was below the reserve, and the property was passed in. There was no bid for the property known as Mason's, comprising 300 acres at Yan Yean which was also offered. The auctioneers were the New Zealand Loan . and Mercantile Agency Co. Ltd.. Collins street.

Cricketers celebrate

■ The Alexandra team celebrated the winning of the premiership with a dinner at the Alexandra Hotel on Wednesday evening. After justice had been done to an excellent repast, a short toast -list was introduced. After the loyal toast, the Chairman (Mr. C. Armstrong) extended a hearty welcome to their guests. A cricket club could not be run without supporters-they gave great assistance and were always very welcome. Mr. Tom Mitchell proposed the toast of The Association and Officials, and complimented them on the very satisfactory manner they had carried out their duties.

Uni car trial ■ A number of small cars, most of them of the sports variety, and most of the young drivers being accompanied by feminine assistants, were observed flashing along the Whittlesca road on Wednesday. They were members of the Melbourne University Car Club and were holding a reliability trial from Melbourne through Whittlesea, Tommy's Hut, Kinglake, Hurstbridge and back to Melbourne. On a straight stretch between Mernda and Yan Yean a measured half-mile was used for an acceleration test.

Cathkin first settled in 1840 ■ Cathkin became the junction for the Tallarook-Mansfield railway line, and the Alexandra branch line. The Murrindindi Shire Heritage Study (2011) says: The Cathkin settlement was named by Crawford Allen, the first squatter who arrived in the area in 1840 - he is said to have named the run after the Cathkin Braes, near Carmunnuck, Lanarkshire, Scotland. In 1851 Cathkin was taken over by John Maxwell, who had arrived in Victoria in 1836. Maxwell was associated with one of Victoria's largest landholders, Hugh Glass, who also owned considerable property in what is now the Murrindindi Shire. The former pastoral settlement of 20,480 acres (9,300 ha) was first listed as 'Catkin' on Hiscock's 1874 map of the Parish ofAnglesea. In Gaelic 'Catkin' means 'at the battle height'. The first school opened in the 1880s but closed in 1895. The Cathkin State School opened in 1905 when the area was known as Molesworth East. This School closed in 1946. The railway station opened in 1890 - it was a junction for Koriella and Alexandra on the TallarookMansfield line. The poet, James McRae Dunn, was station master from 1939-1970. The line was finally closed in 1978. Postal and telegraph services were an important means of communication between the early townships and the outside world. The efforts to establish a means of communication via mail and telegraph services in townships such as Alexandra, Yea, Molesworth and Cathkin were of vital importance in these somewhat isolated regions during the 19th century. The telegraph facility was introduced in Cathkin in 1890 and to nearby Whittlesea in 1891. Local historians Glen and Nancy Jones recorded the history of the post office in their local history, Molesworth 1824-1994. The post office at Cathkin was established at the railway station on October 6, 1890, and Alfred O Capell, who was the station master, became the first postmaster. John A. Macauley succeeded him in 1891 and remained at the post office until 1893. James Bennett was postmaster until 1901. Record keeping for the 1901 to

Dawson and Mr George Sadler. The hotel eventually closed and was converted to a residence c.1914. It served as the Meehan family residence for many years (possibly from 1914). Later owners, the Thomas family added a rear extension to the house in the 1980s. The house retains 19th century features such as Baltic pine lining boards internally. The last passenger service to Cathkin was on May 28, 1977. It had opened on June 10, 1890, and was known as Alexandra Road. The railway was extended on November 10, 1890, with the line eventually reaching Mansfield in 1891. The short 7-kilometre long branch was opened from Cathkin to Koriella in 1890, being extended another seven kilometres to Alexandra in 1909.

White was postmistress around 1908 and it is believed W.F. Meehan took over the duties of postmaster in 1910 until his daughter, Miss Mary Meehan, became post mistress on February 15, 1937, a position she held until 1943. “ The post office was eventually moved from the railway station and located next to the Meehans' house just over the road, itself originally built by J D O'Callaghan in 1893 as the Cathkin Hotel. Following Miss Meehan's retirement the post office was run first by Mrs Bertha Tucker thenMr Andrew Reilly who assumed control in 1944.

Mothers Day at Sacred Heart Gaming review in Murrindindi ■ Murrindindi Shire is calling for public submissions on a proposed amendment that would formalise Council's guidelines governing gaming machines within the Planning Scheme. The Council's Land Use Planning Portfolio Councillor Margaret Rae said the proposed Amendment C62 sought to adopt formally the guidelines already in place following a review of Council's Gaming Policy. "The previous Council considered this issue in October 2015 and adopted the guidelines at that time,” Cr Rae said. “The next step for us is to make an amendment to the Planning Scheme so that we can incorporate this change formally into the Murrindindi Shire Planning Scheme, the document which guides use and development of land within the Shire. "The proposed amendment to Council's Planning Scheme enables Council to consider applications for gaming machines in a way which is consistent with State Government requirements. “But it also aims to ensure consideration of social and economic implications and minimise possible harm and amenity impacts arising from installation of gaming machines. “It will give Council the tool to guide the careful and sensitive management of gaming applications into the future", Cr Rae added. If, after considering public submissions, Council adopts Amendment C62, Council will then have a formal framework to guide decision-making about future proposals from businesses wanting to introduce or expand the number of electronic gaming machines they have. "There are already a number of safeguards in place which control where gaming machines can be located. “Gaming is already prohibited in strip shopping centres across the Shire under the current Murrindindi Planning Scheme and a planning permit is required to install or use gaming machines in all other areas", said Cr Rae. Council invites the community to comment on Amendment C62 to the Murrindindi Planning Scheme by 11 June 2018. Amendment C62 is on public exhibition at all Council offices and available for viewing on murrindindi.vic.gov.au until June 11. Written submissions can be made to the Council. - Contributed

Aussie scores big in ‘Shot In The Dark’ ■ Hi everyone, from my suite at the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Suites comes this week's news.

5th largest economy ■ California's gross domestic product surpassed $2.7 trillion from 2016 to 2017, making the U.S. state the world's fifthlargest economy, bigger than that of even the United Kingdom, according to recently released federal data. The most populous U.S. state saw a boom in almost every single economic sector, with a $26 billion growth in real estate and $20 billion in the information sector, according to the California Department of Finance. The state's economic output is now short of only that of Japan, China, Germany, and the total GDP of the U.S. the last time the state's economy ranked as the world's fifth largest was in 2002.

Melbourne to the world ■ From his role as presenter with Bert Newton on Channel 10's morning show 12 years ago to now sitting on top of the world, Shannon Watts has, in the eyes of Hollywood, made the big time. 'Shot in the Dark' is all about the cameramen armed with camcorders and police scanners in search of shocking and grisly crimes on the Los Angeles back streets and freeways after dark. The video footage ends up on the morning television news service. The Hollywood movie called Nightcrawler which starred Jake Gyllenhaal was similar to what happens in Shot in the Dark. Shannon Watts is the creator and executive producer and now after this success on Netflix worldwide, Shannon has many other shows that he is presenting to the major television networks and cable channels. It's a tough town to get anything produced and Shannon Watts has achieved so much. He is about to build his empire. A true local boy made good. Behind most Aussies that are trying to make it on the biggest stage in the world is the Managing Director of the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Suites, Alan Johnson who is always there to lend a helping hand to fellow Aussies. Pictured in front of the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Suites on Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood is Mr. Alan Johnson with Executive Producer Shannon Watts.

Coca-Cola as health tonic ■ At a time when soda fountains were popular in the US due to the widespread belief that carbonated water was good for the health, American pharmacist John Pemberton came up with his own formula for a health tonic. Among its ingredients were cocaine, derived from the coca leaf, and caffeine, derived from the kola nut, leading to the name Coca-Cola. It was initially sold as a patent medicine for five cents a glass. It has come along way since then.

US, top oil exporter ■ As global oil markets shift their attention from U.S. shale oil production back to a resurgent Saudi Arabia and Russia and geopolitical concerns bearing down on oil prices, the U.S. is poised to surpass Saudi Arabia next year as the world's largest exporter of crude and oil products. The U.S. exported a record 8.3 million barrels per day last week of crude oil and petroleum products. Top crude oil exporter Saudi Arabia's, for its part, exported 9.3 million barrels per day in January, while Russia exported 7.4 million barrels per day.

Paris Hilton hacked ■ Paris Hilton made an appearance in federal court for the sentencing of a hacker who authorities say used her bank and credit card information to run up huge bills. Paystar Bkhchadzhyan was sentenced to four years and nine months in prison Monday and was ordered to pay more than $318,000 in restitution to Hilton's banks and credit card companies. In a deal with prosecutors, she pleaded guilty in November to conspiracy to commit bank fraud. In an unusual move in such cases, the 37-year-old heiress showed up at the downtown Los Angeles courthouse in a business suit and sunglasses to give a victim impact statement.

Santa Monica’s big jobs ■ Here is the top 11 paid positions in 2016 in Santa Monica, CA. The amount shown includes pay, overtime, and benefits. 1. Police Chief = $488,033 2. Deputy Police Chief = $453,831 3. Police Captain = $451,606 4. City Manager = $447,945 5. Asst City Manager = $437,902 6. Asst City Attorney = $436,482 7. City Attorney = $435,751 8.

Unemployment below 4%

From my Suite at the Ramada Plaza Complex on Santa Monica Blvd

■ The U.S. unemployment rate has moved below 4 percent the first time it has broken that symbolic barrier since December 2000, according to a report from the Department of Labor Statistics on Friday. However, job growth was slightly lower than expected in April. American employers added 164,000 jobs in April, less than what economists had previously forecast. Wages grew 2.6 percent from a year earlier also slightly below expectations. The economy has now been expanding for almost nine years, the second longest streak on record. Also Black, Hispanic unemployment rates hit record lows. The unemployment rate for black workers hit the lowest on record in April, according to the latest jobs figures released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The unemployment rate for black workers dropped to 6.6 percent, beating the previous record low of 6.8 percent set in December. The jobless rate for Hispanics fell to 4.8 percent, tying the record reached last year and in 2006. Meanwhile, unemployment for white Americans stood at 3.6 percent.

■ The U.S. National Security Agency collected 534 million records of phone calls and text messages of Americans last year, more than triple gathered in 2016, a U.S. intelligence agency report released on Friday said. The sharp increase from 151 million occurred during the second full year of a new surveillance system established at the spy agency after U.S. lawmakers passed a law in 2015 that sought to limit its ability to collect such records in bulk. The spike in collection of call records coincided with an increase reported on Friday across other surveillance methods, raising questions from some privacy advocates who are concerned about potential government overreach and intrusion into the lives of U.S. citizens.

The Whittlesea Story: Part 7

Whittlesea joins with Epping Shire Courtesy of the City of Whittlesea. From ‘The Plenty’ by J.W. Payne, 1975. ■ “Thereupon the Morang ratepayers met at the State School No 488 Mr A. Willis in the chair - to take into consideration the action of McCormick and his creatures in the Darebin Council in opposing the petition. “The meeting was well attended and the first resolution was proposed by Mr Moses Thomas (who gave McCormick a rare ‘showing up’) and seconded by Mr Wyatt. “’That this meeting, being fully convinced that all allegations put forth in the petition presented by the ratepayers are true and substantially correct and can be proved from the records in the Shire’s books, is willing to join issue with the Council on the Question. “This was carried. McCormick who was present, wished to make some sort of statement as to the recipts and expenditure of the Morang riding, but the meeting refused to listen to Mac as he had no business there, not being a ratepayer of the riding.” The Government of the day agreed to severance and the decision was incorporated in the Local Government Act of 1874, Part xxxi, Paragraph 525 deals with the creation of shires from road districts, etc., and reads in part ‘the road district of Whittlesea and Morang riding of the shire of Darebin shall be united and constituted a shire under the name of the Shire of Whittlesea’. Elsewhere in the Act is a description of the boundaries of the shire under ‘Number 101 Whittlesea’. Obviously the Act was controversial; virtually every municipality presented a petition and the matter was before the Legislative Assembly from June 30 until November 25, and before the Legislative Council from November 25 to December 24 on which day it was proclaimed and gazetted. The Act came into force on January 1, 1875, and, in the recent opinion of the Department of Local Government, the Shire of Whittlesea would have been constituted on the day. Hitheryo it had been presumed the Shire began with the Proclamation of the Act on December 24, 1874. Darebin Shire, now sadly reduced to the Ridings of Epping and Woodstock, continued to function. Perhaps the most notable achievement was the opening on March 24, 1893, of Mahoney’s Road with its bridge over the Merri Creek, the latter a joint operation with the City of Preston and the Shire of Broadmeandows. At the may meeting of Darebin Shire Council in 1893, Cr Newton moved that the resolution designating the Shire of Darebin be now revoked. This seconded by Senator McDonnell and carried. “Cr Newton stated that Cr Barry (Merriang) was the only Woodstock ratepayer adverse to ‘Epping’ and that the shire should be named after the principal town Epping, where they had a railway and a town hall. “Cr Newton further moved that the Shire be called ‘Epping’ and that the Secretary put the necessary into motion to get it named so. Seconded by Cr Bodycoat and carried; Cr Barry voting against the motion.” Not until January 19, 1894, was

Not all the ratepayers were in sympatyhy with the Shire Council. An individual who signed himself ‘One aggrieved’, write in the following vein, “It is a scandal that one of the soundest Shires within the State, should have been lost through gross mismanagement, also a great injustice to the ratepayers. “Our worthy councillors were told by the Minister of Public Works two years ago that the Shire would be wiped out if they did not manage the business better, and in the face of this they dawdled away in the same old groove instead of having the Shire re-valued and striking a higher rate, which would have brought the amount of rates far above the sum required by law to constitute a shire; but progressiveness was never part of their program, as they have blocked everything in the form of prograss for the late 20 years ... Epping would have ... been a prosperous manufacturing town today had there more energetic men at the head of affairs.” Despite a further deputation to the Minister on July 10, and pressure fromtheir local member, A. Robertson MLA, who wrote that “he could hold out no hope of altering the views the Minister expressed to the previous deputation”, union seemed inevitable. Hopes rose again when the Minister agreed to visit the Shire inconjunction with Hon. J.G. Membrey, Assistant Minister, A. Robertson MLA and Russell Clarje and W. Angliss MLCs. “The calvalcade of three motor cars created quite a sensation as they bowled along the now perfect main road, through the quiet little township, and drew up at the Shire Hall.” The Shire President, Cr B.J. McCormick, used all of his eloquence and wit in explaining to the visitors the eagerness of Council to retrieve their financial position, and assured the Minister that the fresh valuation would give a revenue of £500 to £600 above the statutory amount. The party toured the district as far as Woodstock and returned, and in the words of the report “It is sincerely hoped in the district that the visit will have the desired effect”. But the Minister was obdurate, and on September 11 word was received that the amalgmation would take effect, which prompted an editorial in the Northcote Leader. “Notwithstanding the efforts made to prevent it, Epping Shire is to go after all. Such is the decree of the Hon. F. Hagelthorn, MLC. It is a senseless and vexatious piece of administration tha reflects small credit on the Minister.” ● To be continued next week in The Local Paper.

Movies, DVDs with Jim Sherlock, Aaron Rourke What’s Hot and What’s Not in Blu-Rays and DVDs FILM: THE POST: Genre: Biography/History/Drama. Cast: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Sarah Paulson and Bruce Greenwood. Year: 2017. Rating: M. Length: 115 Minutes. Stars: ***½ Verdict: Political-drama of a cover-up that spanned four U.S. presidents that depicts the country's first female newspaper publisher, Katharine Graham of The Washington Post, and its hard-hitting editor, Ben Bradlee, who join in an unprecedented battle (suppressing) between journalism and Government in publishing the top secret Pentagon Papers, which revealed the explosive decades of lies of the United States government's involvement during the Vietnam Wa r. Compelling Steven Spielberg drama is a worthy addition to such fact-based newspaper drama's such as Alan J. Pakula's Oscar winning Washington Post "Watergate" expose' "All The President's Men" (1976), and 2015s Oscar winning film "Spotlight," of The Boston Globe's drama on the uncovering of the Catholic Church Child molestation global scandal, among many others. As strong an intimate depiction of the unique relationship between publisher and editor as the unfolding saga of the Pentagon Papers, Meryl Streep gives a solid and convincing performance as embattled Washington Post publisher, Katharine Graham, however, for those who remember Jason Robards Oscar winning performance as legendary Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee in "All The President's Men" (1976), they may feel short-changed, but this is a hard act to follow, and nonetheless, Tom Hanks, no doubt aware of this, makes it his own. Almost [Frank] Capra-esque in feel and tone, as you would expect from Steven Spielberg all else excels, an outstanding supporting cast, most notably Bruce Greenwood as Secretary of Defence, Robert McNamara and Tracy Letts as Katharine Graham adviser, Fritz Beebe, superb period detail and production design, and effective music score from long time Spielberg collaborator, John Williams. Intelligent, thrilling, nostalgic, important and entertaining, this is a slice of history of when governments excelled and relished in arrogance and total abuse of power towards its people, and an affectionate tribute to those in the hey-day and struggle of journalistic bravery who exposed them. Also recommended is "The Pentagon Papers" (2003) starring James Spader as Government Defense worker and analyst Daniel Ellsberg. FILM: Genre: Cast: Bana,

THE SECRET SCRIPTURE: Drama. Rooney Mara, Aidan Turner, Theo James, Eric

Vanessa, Redgrave, Adrian Dunbar. Year: 2016. Rating: M. Length: 108 Minutes. Stars: ***½ Verdict: An elderly woman confined to a mental hospital in Ireland, a place she has called home for over 50 years, must vacate the soon to be demolished institution, but when the hospital's psychiatrist is called in to assess her condition, she reveals the history of her passionate yet troubled life in a hidden memoir, and soon finds himself intoxicated by her past, and a journey that reveals a dark secret. Co-written and Directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot, In the Name of the Father), has crafted an elegant and intriguing tale that covers a broad landscape spanning over five decades through war and the bloody and blindly brutal political and religious toxicity over the period towards women. Based on Sebastian Barry's award-winning novel of the same name, this old fashioned cinematic tale owes for most part richly convincing and detailed performances by Rooney Mara as the young Roseanne and Jack Reynor as the young pilot, Michael, however, it is Eric Bana as the psychiatrist and Oscar winning screen veteran Vanessa Redgrave that steal the acting honours with utterly compelling performances. Beautifully photographed Mikhail Krichman, this film does lack a more even thread, subtlety and emotional grip (soft), nonetheless, this is a well made drama on the personal tragedy of unforgiving dehumanizing 1940s political and religious absurdities, personal choice, fear and freedom, a journey through a period and a place in history which all too many did suffer, and which, sadly, their voices will remain silent. FILM: ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESQ: Cast: Denzel Washington, Colin Farrell, Carmen Ejogo. Genre: Crime/Drama. Year: 2017. Rating: M. Length: 122 Minutes. Stars: *** Verdict: Set in the underbelly of the overburdened Los Angeles criminal court system. Denzel Washington stars as Roman Israel, a driven, idealistic defence attorney who, through a tumultuous series of events, finds himself in a crisis. Exceptional character study and legal drama falls short on emotion and central grip, but succeeds due to the compelling Oscar nominated performance by Denzel Washington as the shoddy, insightful off-centre lawyer, along with Colin Farrell as the cutthroat lawyer who recruits him to his firm. Extremely well filmed and paced with a solid supporting cast who all deliver, writer/Director Dan Gilroy, whose previous credits include the outstanding Oscar nominated drama "Nightcrawler" (2014) with Jake Gyllenhaal, has here created a unique character brimming with conviction, depth, humour and pathos. Well written in parts, any loopholes or shortcomings the screenplay delivers may not be all forgiven, but will mostly be forgotten, solely due to the exceptional performance of Denzel Washington in a character you won't soon forget!

■ Lyon Himan Green was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, 100 years ago. He was the son of Russian Jewish immigrants and he was known as Hyman during his school years. He started acting in drama productions whilst attending Queens University in Kingston. After graduation Hyman accepted a fellowship at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre in New York City. He returned home two years later and started working as a news reader at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation where he became known as ‘The Voice of Canada’. He was now using the stage name of Lorne Greene. In 1938 Lorne married Rita Hands and they had two children. During the war years Lorne served in the Royal Canadian Air Force. After the war he returned to radio and invented a stopwatch that worked backwards to allow announcers to gauge how much time they had time available to close a program. In 1953 he was in a Broadway production of The Prescott Proposal and co-starring with Katharine Cornell at the Broadhurst Theatre. Lorne scored roles in television dramas and then appeared in films such as The Silver Chalice, Autumn Leaves, Peyton Place and The Trap. After a guest role in the television series Wagon Train he was asked to play ‘Ben Cartwright’ in the new western Bonanza. His hair was silver and he was perfectly cast

in the role. The series ran from 1959 till 1973 and it became one of the most popular shows on television. He was a father to three sons living on a ranch called The Ponderosa sometime after the American Civil War. The sons were originally played by Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts and Dan Blocker. Elvis Presley was a big fan of the show and visited the set. Following his divorce from Rita he married Nancy Deale in 1961 and they had a son. Lorne was earning a huge salary from Bonanza and became extremely wealthy through investments in real estate and other projects. He built a house in Arizona which was a

Lorne appeared as a guest on The Dean Martin Show. Dean and Lorne sang songs and did some ad-lib dialogue as they sat on two very undisciplined horses. It was brilliant television Dean said he wanted to be on Bonanza and Lorne replied that he would make a great guest star. Dean quipped, "I don't want to be a guest star I want to be a son." It was hilarious. After Bonanza finished Lorne went straight into a new television crime series Griff where he played a private detective. He had a small role in the film Earthquake playing opposite Gregory Peck and Ava Gardiner. Lorne found fame again when he starred as ‘Commander Adama’in the futuristic television series Battlestar Galactica for several years. He was a guest star on many television shows such as The Love Boat, Highway To Heaven and Police Squad. His last acting role was as a lawyer in Dallas. Lorne Greene died in Santa Monica in 1987 at the age of 72 from pneumonia complications following surgery for an ulcer.

Churchillian devotion to the bubble

■ Having led Britain to victory in World War II as his nation’s Prime Minister and then seen his party thrown out of office in the first election after that war, Winston Churchill had one particularly important job in mind when he was re-elected again by voters in 1951. And that was to stock-take the cellars when he moved back into the Prime Ministerial home and office at Number 10 Downing Street. And critically for just how many bottles of Champagne they held, and of those how many were of the Champagneloving Churchill’s favourite drop, Pol Roger. When the reply came back that there was none, Churchill got straight on the phone to the Champagne house’s owner and his friend, Mme Odette Pol Roger in Epernay, who within an hour had a few cases heading to Number 10 post-haste. And all this before Churchill had even held his first Cabinet meeting there. Although he’d been enjoying Pol Roger for years, it was only in 1944 during a visit to Paris after the liberation of France by the Allies, that Churchill first met Jacques and Odette Pol Roger at a luncheon at the British Embassy. He was swept away both by Odette’s beauty and her wit (“as sparkling as her Champagne,”) and openly praised her courage as a bicycle courier for wartime’s French Resistance. As their friendship developed, the Pol Roger’s named their finest premium Champagne as Cuvee Winston Churchill, while he in turn named one of his race horses Pol Roger, and during the last 10 years of his life ordered over 500 cases of Pol Roger Champagne – literally a carton a week. And 46 years after his death in 1965, the French street in which the Pol Roger cellars are located was renamed in 2011 by the local Epernay Municipality, Rue Winston Churchill.

My Turn Now was inspired by sitting in a doctor's waiting room supporting her elderly mother. Della says it's a poignant song dealing with how as our parents age it is our opportunity to turn the tide and be more active in the care for them. “My songs are stories about mine and other people's lives, relationships and everyday stuff we can all relate to,” she adds. - Rob Foenander

■ Jon Rozentals has the pleasure of tasting a Margaret River chardonnay showing exceptional power and intensity of flavour. As an extremely fortunate and regular imbiber of great bottles and scribbler about wine, one of the most difficult questions posed to me goes along the lines of: "If I spend $50 on a bottle will I get five times as good a wine than if I spend just $10?" My answer usually goes something like this: "You should certainly expect a significantly better wine but I really doubt that it will be five times better." Just as a top-line Mercedes is a better car then a Commodore but doesn't really some out as that much better than their respective price tags would suggest. I remember, from very hazy days long ago, learning in economics about the law of diminishing returns. I'm sure that this question is somehow related to that, though I can't quite pin down how. I suppose that, in a nutshell, each improvement in grape quality comes only at a much more significant cost. I pondered this over a glass of exceptional chardonnay, produced principally from Margaret River fruit by Janice McDonald at Western Australia's Howard Park. As my tasting notes indicate, this wine is one of the richest and most intensely flavoured white wines I have had the pleasure of sipping.

Deck-Doc

Local company chosen as best in the world

For many years Deck-Doc has been supplying retailers throughout Australia with their premium range of timber and decking oils. For the past three years, Deck-Doc has been predominantly selling their products online to service the whole of Australia as well as international customers.

Deck-Doc was recently chosen over other companies to supply their oils to an international company and is in the process of sealing an agency agreement for exclusive distribution and selling rights in Sri Lanka and the Maldives. Deck-Doc timber oil is environmentally friendly and the business has been manufacturing unique, lanolin-based timber oil in Geelong for 15 years. The formula was developed by Robert Hylands to preserve the natural oils and tannins in the timber. The timbers oils and tannins determine the colour of the timber. If the tannins dry out, the timber will lose its own natural colour. The formula is made up of many different plant oils, waxes and lanolin and designed to stay soft and pliable when absorbed into the surface layers of the timber, therefore will not solidify and form a hard membrane of the surface. It will move with the timber during all weather conditions preventing water absorption and drying out of the tannins. Mr Hylands first developed the timber oil when he noticed there was nothing on the market that preserved the timber and protected the timber’s natural colour. Before his time at Deck-Doc, he gained experience when he owned a factory making hand carved, handpainted wooden decoy ducks for duck hunters. The timber used for the ducks had to maintain its natural colour and stay on the water without absorbing moisture. After extensive research, he found lanolin (wool grease) gave excellent water repellency as well as UV protection. Mr Hylands developed lanolin-based timber protection oil and found the water-repellent protection and preservative way far superior and says lanolin is “Nature’s natural UV protection”. Lanolin comes from the wool of sheep and is extracted from the fleece. It is a substance that waterproofs, insulates, and protects sheep from the cold, wind, rain and harmful CV sun rays. Deck-Doc uses the best merino wool to extract lanolin. Throughout history ancient mariners such as the Vikings used lanolin to protect, waterproof and preserve the wooden boards on their ships. Many of the ships were away from their home bases for many years and their ships were subjected to wild storms at sea. They survived thanks to the protection of Lanolin. Deck-Doc invites all to visit their showroom in Moolap for free advice in a number of important issues concerning timber care. There is a large selection of timber types that have been exposed to severe weather conditions, enabling people to understand the importance of choosing a suitable timber type. for the right application. Also know what happens to the different types of decking stains and coatings, how they weather, and the maintenance required. The friendly staff have useful hints for anyone preparing to build a new deck.

150 Years of Local Press

Lakers-Tigers grudge dates back to 1990 ■ Kinglake Football-Netball Club reformed in 1990, and the local newspaper was there to play its part. In our April 4, 1990, edition, we reported on the coming pre-season ‘Chronicle Cup’ battle between Kinglake and Yea, to take place at the Yea Rec. Reserve. Kinglake Football Club thenPresident Jeff Taylor said: “It is a match which will provide good spirited competition, whilst at the same time forming strong ties between the two clubs and communities.” Whilst there have certainly been ties between the two clubs over the past three decades, the players of Kinglake and Yea are often described - probably accurately - as “traditional rivals”. The 1990 hoop-la surrounding the practice match was described as a “Mini Ashes” rivalry. The Tigers were then playing in the Kyabram District Football League, and the Lakers were described as “not to be taken lightly” after a 10-year absence from the footy field. Kinglake was about to enter the second division of the Yarra Valley and Mountain District Football League with 1990 competitors including Panton Hill, Belgrave, Yarra Junction, Powelltown, South Belgrave, Seville and Silvan. (The Lakers first game for the 1990 season was at home against Panton Hill.) Veteran football columnist and former Yea newspaper proprietor Tom Dignam was amused that the match comprised “six quarters”. Yea won the grudge match, with the Chronicle Cup being presented to Tigers coach Bruce Elliott. Other speakers were Yea President John Peacock, and Kinglake President Jeff Taylor. Tom Dignam recorded that Tigers player Adrian Sier was prominent “with eight or nine goals”. “Also playing well were Vincent Dignam, Peter Cunningham and the Powell brothers. “Alan Cassell was taken to the Yea Hospital throughout the game to be treated for a split ear, following a kick to the head. “The Yea line-up did not include Joe McCarthy, Paul Tunnis or Trevor Aldous, who had played the previous Sunday. “It did include Pat Comerford, who was in good form, but is unlikely to be a starter (for the 1990 season), owing to study commitments. “Welcomed back to the Yea camp were Brendan Chenall and Alan Cassell, while Paul Bryant, sidelined through injury, was at the rooms. “This appears to leave only Gary Tainton and John Roycroft from 1989 unaccounted for - they could be non-starters,” said the report from 28 years ago. “The Powell brothers and a couple of others will be a help. Noticed on Saturday for talented play was Darren Britt,” Tom Dignam wrote. Kinglake coach Noel McAuliffe also wrote a column for our local paper. “From a coach’s point-of-view, it was disappointing to lose the game, but we are an untapped talent, full of youth, sprinkled with a few experienced players ready to give any side in the YVMDFL, a run for their money. “The boys from the green-andgold held their own for the first three

quarters but were gradually over-run by a much taller and experienced Yea team. B: T. Groenwegen, P. Exton, T. Law“I think that the spirit and running less shown by the Kinglake boys certainly HB: A.

Challenge, and we lok forward to taking it away from you in 1991,” said Noel McAuliffe. The Lakers jumper presentation was held at the Kinglake Hotel on Thursday, April 19, followed by a dinner.

KINGLAKE FOOTBALL NETBALL CLUB REPORT

RESERVES ■ The Twos had a great start to the day playing really well as a team controlling the game for a majority of the first half but some inaccurate kicking for goal in second quarter allowed junction back into the contest. The third quarter Junction came out to play getting a goal behind at three-quarter time. In the last quarter Junction got two kicks up and the game looked over but to the Lakers credit they didn’t give up and kicked two goals in the last two minutes to secure a one-point win. Jimmy Walker and Lindon Young had great days and Danyon Simmons was the hero of the day kicking the winner. SENIORS The senior game was even in the first and second quarters with junction taking a four-point lead into the half time break, the third quarter Junction were able to get some breathing space and took a 16-point lead into three-quarter time. The game was very much there for the taking but unfortunately Junction put the foot down with a seven-goal last quarter which put the game to bed. Jayden Butterworth and Sandy McLaren did a fantastic job down back and once again Bailey Hamer continued his great form getting better and better each week. Aron Burns, Ben White and Ben Howlett all chipped in with two goals each. We get a week off with interleague this week and then take on local rivals Yea in what promises to be a big game for both clubs. NETBALL Round 4.

YEA FOOTBALL NETBALL CLUB REPORT

ter last week not having the match they wanted, and boy did these girls do just that. Coming out firing from the start Kinglake proved that one bad game does not define them. There was defensive pressure consistently down the court making Junction’s sweat. Steph Nechodiuk and Brianna Draper had great pressure over the junction feeders as they rotated through WD. For a netball newbie Marnie Bentley sure didn't let up in defence end stealing multiple rebounds. The Lakers attacking end never let up in this game even though it was evident it was our four points. Best: Emily Siggins. Coaches: Marnie B. ★ C-Grade (win) With a few key players out this week and a couple of injuries during the game Lakers had to unite and draw on other grades to help the C girls secure their win. The mid courtera were quite impressive in Saturdays's game as Mykaela Smith and Stacey Chalmers worked the ball down the court into the safe hands of goalers. Danielle Moore and Errin White came on after already securing a win in D to continue to put the pressure on over a competitive junction side. After debriefing with C and D grade coach Taryn Jennings it was evident that her girls are putting into practice her teachings and stated she "was very proud of the pressure and teamwork throughout both games" Best: Mykaela S ★ B- Grade 43-63 (loss) The first half of the game saw us hang in there against a well developed Junction side. Defenders worked tirelessly against the opposition shooters who simply weren't missing. Renee Wilson had an impressive game with 11 turnovers as she tried to stop the ball landing in their shooters hands. Up Kinglake’s goaling end Jade White aimed to get us back in the game in the third quarter shooting 11 from 11 goals. The Lakers’ first loss for the season has allowed the team to see where it need sto rainings on to allow for four strong quarters and how can a coach be disappointed with a loss with the entire team supported each other and played the game with smiles on their faces. Best: Renee W ★ A- Grade 52-59 (loss) This side entered this game with a lot of pressure on them from the league. They have sat top of the ladder with two very well won games. Picking them to be one of the teams to watch this season, we knew Junction were keen to make a stand. The game was tight the entire way with both sides shooting goal for goal. Coming into the second quarter down by 2, Lakers defenders Alice Waack and Caitlin Ryan turning over Junction’s scraps to take us back to an eight-goal lead. The third qrt was Kinglake’s downfall as it made some silly mistakes that have been discussed so the team can move forward and not repeat this in Round 5. In the final quarter Kinglake playersspurred each other on and played 15minutes of top level netball but with each end not giving up the fight the last quarter was goal for goal meaning there was no chance of taking the four points. Best : Caitlin R

An undermanned Yea were always going to be up against it when they hosted Seville at the Recreation Reserve, but it was a disappointing result nevertheless, with the Tigers beaten comprehensively by 80 points. Missing Michael Curcio, Michael Pitman, Daniel Evans,Ash Walsh, Dan O'Dwyer, Lachie Beattie and Daniel Belsten left a big gap in experience and this was felt as the Blues took control of the game early to hold a 21-point advantage at the first change. This trend continued in the second term as Seville continued to be first to the contest and made the most of their opportunities forward, while Yea managed just one goal for the quarter to trail by seven majors at half-time. The result was quickly decided in the third as the visitors piled on seven goals to one, with the Tigers playing into their opponent's hands by kicking the ball long with an undersized side, before a more promising last quarter where they outscored Seville three goals to two. Harrison Jarvie (one goal) was the host's best, working nonstop all day through the middle, where he was ably supported by Adrian McCarthy and Brad Clements in the ruck. Riley Aldous was outstanding in the contest and set the tone early, James Ryan was as reliable as ever in an under-siege defence and Jack Salau impressed on debut, while Nathan Beattie chimed in with two late goals. Despite the injuries to key players for the home side, the Blues simply wanted it more, constantly pressuring the Tigers into turning the ball over and locking it inside their front half. Yea will use the bye to lick their wounds before squaring off against Kinglake in a crunch game at home. Goalkickers: N. Beattie 2, H. Jarvie, H. Witton, C. Graham, S. Bamblett Best Players: H. Jarvie, A. McCarthy, J. Ryan, R. Aldous, B. Clements, J. Salau RESERVES After a poor showing against Yarra Junction, Yea bounced back with an emphatic performance against Seville, downing the visitors by 72 points at home. Despite the hefty final margin, the Blues looked on top early and led by three points at the first break after a tight opening stanza. The game opened up in the second, with the Tigers booting the only three goals of the term to take a handy 17-point break into the main change. Yea's third quarter was superb, as they slammed on six goals while holding the opposition to a solitary behind, taking a commanding 55-point buffer at the last break. The Tigers finished strong with a four-goalto-one final term, ensuring a handy percentage boost to compensate for their heavy loss against the Eagles the previous week. Dan O'Dwyer (three goals) was brilliant in a best on ground display, Emerson Daines made a strong return to form and Dylan Jannke continued his rock solid 2018 campaign in defence. Julian Mahon had his third straight dominant performance, Josh Carroll controlled the ruck and there was an even spread of goalkickers, with Trent McMahon (three), Darcy Pell (three), Josh Keyte (three) and Ben Wilsmore (two) all contributing. The win sees the Tigers jump to third position on the ladder heading into the interleague bye, with several senior players returning from injury sure to bolster the reserves playing stocks. Yea will host fourth-placed Kinglake in a crucial contest after the bye. Goalkickers: D. Pell 3, T. McMahon 3, D. O'’Dwyer 3, J. Keyte 3, B. Wilsmore 2 Best Players: D. O’Dwyer, E. Daines, D. Jannke, J. Mahon, J. Keyte, J. Carroll - Patrick Evans

YEA FOOTBALL NETBALL CLUB REPORT NETBALL D-GRADE With Seville unable to field a D-Grade side, the League has refixtured the D-Grade draw and the Tigers lined up against Alexandra at home on Saturday. These two sides met only three weeks ago and the result was similar, Yea taking the game by eight goals this time around. Scoring was constant in the first half with the Yea girls having the edge, capitalising on turnovers to hold a handy four-goal lead at half time. Great defensive work all over the court in the third quarter made a huge difference to the game with Yea outscoring Alex by five goals and setting up a match winning lead at the last break. The Tigers did what they needed to do in the last quarter, maintaining possession of the ball from their centre passes and scoring conisistently to take the four points. Youngsters Tegan Britton, Ebony Edge and the Broderick sisters, Caitlyn and Hannah, all showing the continued improvement in their games since stepping up to senior level - well done girls. Yea 29 def Alexandra 21 Goals: H. Broderick 16, S. Murray 11, K. Schaeffer 2 Best: T. Britton, S. Murray, H. Broderick ★ C-GRADE This was a great game of netball to watch, the two teams fighting it out til the very end, Seville came up with the points at the end. Yea went into the game without the general of their backline in Deb Schickerling. Sarah Lobley stepped in admirably from C-Grade and combined well with Elly Hendrie to really pressure the Seville shooters all day, exceptionally in the first half. The pressure out front of the defensive ring by Rach Normington and Jordan Watts was constant and aggressive, and they picked off many balls before they could reach the goal ring. Yea's first half was amongst their best play for the season so far, with great passages of play and precision passing. The feeds from Jordan, Maggie McSpeerin, Fiona Purvis and Tara Gregory into the well positioned Rhi Aldous was superb to watch and Seville really had to adjust, bringing on more experienced defenders in the second half to halt the feed. The work from Fiona and Tara at GA, was unselfish and their body position and movement set Rhiannon up over and over again. Yea led right through until the three quarter time break but it was Seville who came home stronger to take the win but full credit to the Tigers who played a fanstastic game. Seville 42 def Yea 35 Goals: R. Aldous 28, F. Purvis 5, T. Gregory 2. Best: S. Lobley, R. Aldous, Jordan Watts ★ B-GRADE Yea went down to Seville by one goal in a disappointing result that will put the fire in their bellies for the next encounter. This game was very topsy turvy, played at a high standard, with the momentum changing often. Seville pulled away in the last five minutes of the first quarter to take a four-goal lead to the break. Coach Mel asked her charges for a strong start to the second quarter and they delivered, playing what was their best display of netball for the season. Defensively Yea were on fire and Seville could only shoot two goals for the quarter. In attack the girls swung the ball around quickly and precisely to set the goal shooters up. A 15-goal turnaround in this quarter had the Tigers up by 11 at half-time. Yea extended this lead to 14 early in the second half but as small errors started to creep in, the momentum swung again, Seville chipping

away at the lead and reducing it back to seven at the last break. Again the visitors came, and with their pressure, Yea struggled to keep possession of the ball. The lead slowly vanished and the Tigers struggled to hold on. Seville took the lead with not much time left and Yea had a chance to level the game through Cindy after the siren, but to no avail. Yea have learned a lot from this game and look forward to next time. Seville 42 def Yea 41 Goals: M. Sundblom 25, C. Hayes 16 Best: L. Cronk, C. Hayes, S. Watts ★ A-GRADE This was a highly anticipated match for both players and supporters of A-Grade, their first real test for the season and an indicator of premiership favouritism. Both sides were full of talent and this was shown from the first whistle, strong, fast and physical netball being played. Yea’s powerful forward line of Mel, Rach, Gaby and Sam were impressive and set up the ball beautifully in and around the ring to shoot 13 goals for the quarter, leading by five at quarter-time. Yea's depth of talent started to shine through in the second quarter with quality defensive pressure all over the court. Ruby O'Dwyer, Megan Leatham, Chelsea Spagnolo and Sarah Armstrong did a power of work in the defensive end to pressure Seville into numerous mistakes which the Tigers capitalised on. Tigers by 13 at half time. The second half was very evenly played, Yea winning the half by just two goals. Seville upped their physicality but Yea continued to play their style of game, not getting caught up in the Seville style. A great game by the girls who now have the week off next weekend and then will test their form against fellow top five sides in Kinglake and Yarra Glen. Yea 56 def Seville 41 Goals: M. Martinov 36, R. Hickey 20 Best: G. Duncan, M. Martinov, M. Leatham - Cindy Hayes

YEA JUNIOR FOOTBALL REPORT UNDER 10

■ We had five outs the morning of the game which left team management under pressure working out sides. After not having coach Tim last week all players stepped up to display unbelievable matches. We had direct kicking, accurate handballing kids staying in there zones and calling for playkicking to free areas when under pressure and a few top screamers. Yea Under 10’s were definitely the more disciplined side. Great match by all, hard to pick top players. Next weekend we have the Split round at home with only the netballers playing- it would be great to come and support the girls, we will be back at it again to play at home on May 27. Please note change of time for training on Friday night being 4.30pm to beat the darkness and cold. Go Tigers, great effort.

of the high scoring zone and keep them there and when the 53.2 came up at the final 1000 yards he was glad that the ordeal was over. Back at the Violet Town 500 yard range on Saturday the other members of the ECDRA were at their regular practice session and the conditions were no kinder with all shooters struggling to make good scores. Both Terry Gee and Neal Hambridge top range score for the day with 59.6, considerably better than their mates at Stawell but that is where the good scores stopped for the day. It was particularly disappointing when the scores were compared with Wednesday’s shoot yet many of the shooters had chosen to test out different rifles and ammunition so there was considerable learning taking place. The results for Saturday at Violet Town were: Rosco Davis 49, 53.4 = 104.4, Richard Godden 45.1, 48 = 93.1, Neal Hambridge 54.2,54.4,59.6 and 54.1 = 221.13, Terry Gee 52.2, 59.6, 53 =164.8 and David Wallace 52.4, 53.3, 50 =155.7. Over a cuppa and a warm-up around the club room heater before going home all agreed that the shoot had been worthwhile, everyone had learnt quite a bit and were looking forward to next week’s shooting. Shooters: please check the club calendar for shooting dates and times on the web site at www.ecdra.com.au New shooters are most welcome. - Robert Chaffe

■ Yea’s Under14s arrived at Avenel under manned, but like previous weeks the young side accepted the challenge, and played an amazing game of footy. The back line was strong, with young Lucas Zipsin getting a lot of the ball in full back, going in hard for ball for his second of the game of the day. Lachlan Donnelly and Tobias Philpot swapped through the ruck, and playing a great game all over the field. Unfortunately this proved to be another game that the score board didn’t show how well the boys and girls played. Coach Dean Clue said all his players need to be very proud of themselves.

EAST CENTRAL DISTRICT RIFLE ASSOCIATION REPORT ■ Rosco Davis from the East Central District Rifle association shot a double possible of 60.2 and 60.7 at 500 yards last Wednesday for a total of 120.9 points out of a possible 120.10 points. It was not as if the day was without its challenges but Rosco certainly had the conditions by the tail as well as his shooting technique spot on. Close behind him was Robert Irving with a 59.5 and a 56.3 for a score of 114.9 then Richard Godden 57,55 for 102 and Brian Houlihan 52.1, 57.3 for 99.4. A great effort by all shooters and the significance of the relatively high scores really comes into focus when we go to Saturday’s shoot. ★ Saturday was the first day of the Stawell twoday prize shoot and Marty Kelly who was the only local shooter to compete and he struggled throughout the weekend. The conditions were very difficult with dull skies and strong choppy winds pushing the competitors to the limit. Marty was off to a great start at the first 500 yards with a 59.2 and first place then the two 15 shot shots over 600 and 700 yards took their toll with Marty shooting 76.1 and 80.3,well below his recent form at these ranges, putting him in second place at both ranges. At the end of day one his 215.6 points gave him second place for the daily aggregate. Sunday at 800 yards he again got off to a great start with 57.1 and first place, the 57. The very low number of super centre shots showed that the conditions were yet again going to be a force to be dealt with. Marty shot 53.2 at the final 900 and 1000yards to yet again to be in second place for both ranges. The Sunday aggregate of 153.5 also gave him second place and the grand aggregate score of 378.11 second place yet again. Marty said it was very difficult to get the shots into the centre

HARNESS RACING REPORT ■ At Yarra Valley on Monday May 7, Art Major-Radical Storm colt Muscle Up Major was a strong victor of the St Ronan's Cider Pace for C0 class over 2150 metres for Lancefield trainer/driver Rod Petroff. Taken back at the start from outside the front line, Muscle Major sprinted sharply in the last lap to join the leader and favourite Admiral approaching the home turn and in a head and head battle all the way up the running, prevailed by a half neck in a 2-02.2 rate. Bye Bye Barbie (one/one) was 4.7 metres away in third place. ■ North East Victoria (Norong) trainer Mark Buckingham's very honest 8Y0 Modern Art-Miss North gelding Nor Nor West was strong in winning the Zonzo Estate Pace for C3 & C4 class over 1650 metres at Yarra Valley. Taking a concession for Brad Chisholm, Nor Nor West from outside the front line spent the entire race parked outside the leader Four Starzzz Forsa (gate three) before dashing clear at the straight entrance to register a 3.2 metre victory over the pacemaker in 1-55.4. Mister Zhivago (three wide last lap) was third a neck away. ■ It's not often that a horse wins at TAB odds in excess of 100/1, however that's what occurred when Bolinda trainer Paul Males' Yeild Boko- Aldebaran Crumpet gelding Aldebaran Jaytee greeted the judge in the 2200 metre ballarattrottingclub.com.au 3Y0 Trotters Handicap at Ballarat on Wednesday. Driven by Zac Phillips, Aldebaran Jaytee was given a sweet trip three back the markers after stepping cleanly from inside the second line. Angling a passage in-between runners in the long straight, Aldebaran Jaytee finished full of running to gain the day 9.1 metres at Supertab odds of $110.00 over Godofthunder and another roughie Bebubbalouie, returning a rate of 2-07.9. - Len Baker

Our reports have 10 years of detailed information and enough detail for your accountant to expand on the individual items after this date so you won't have to arrange for a another report unless you carry out major renovations or improvements. Do you guarantee your report will be worthwhile? Yes of course, and we guarantee that if you do not receive a deduction that is twice the amount of our fee in the first year, then the report will be free. We believe this is the fairest and best possible outcome either way for our clients. What is the process? Do I have to make appointments? No, we make the appointments on your behalf via your rental manager and liaise with tenants for a suitable time for the property inspection so you need not worry about a thing. What happens at the inspection? We measure the property, take photos, take note of all depreciable items and any capital building write off deductions that may apply and then return to the office to calculate and process the report.
