a look at the lighter side of life and other amazing things....



he lady waited with her few items in the express lane of the supermarket, quietly fuming. Completely ignoring the sign, the shopper ahead of her had slipped into the check-out line pushing a cart piled high with groceries. Imagine our shopper’s delight when the cashier beckoned the other woman to come forward, looked into the cart and asked sweetly; “So which six items would you like to buy?”

TAIRWAY to heaven, some wag in the office called it, but you’ve got to admit this is one stylish cellar.... and well-stocked too! The photographs, from the Internet of course, show that some people know how to live in style. Storing your wine like this, close to hand, and in a temperature controlled environment would be a serious wine drinker’s dream come true. The spiral staircase is a nice touch, adding to the overall ambience of the build, and the clear trap door means that you will never have to wonder just how much you have tucked away in the cellar when guests arrive. The downside of that is that the guests too, will know just how much you have and it will be hard to say: “Sorry, we seem to have run out.” when trying to convince them it’s time to go home.


he elderly couple didn’t make a reservation at their favourite restaurant, and despite there appearing to be plenty of room, were told by the haughty waitress that there would be a 45-minute wait for a table. “My dear girl,” the dignified husband said, “We’re both 90 years old, we may not have 45 minutes.” They were seated immediately.


hree friends from the local congregation were asked, “When you’re in your casket, and friends and congregation members are mourning over you, what would you like them to say?” Bill: “I would like them to say I was a wonderful husband, a fine spiritual leader, and a great family man.” Eugene: “I would like them to say I was a wonderful teacher and servant of God who made a huge difference in people’s lives.” Eric: “I would like them to say, “Hold on, he’s moving!”


he Aussie tourist climbs to the top of Mt. Sinai to get closer to God. Looking up, he asks the Lord; “God, what does a million years mean to you?” The Lord replies, “One minute.” Aussie; “And what does a million dollars mean to you?”

Lord: “A penny.” Aussie: Can I have a penny?” Lord: “In a minute.” Have you ever been guilty of looking at others your own age and thinking, surely I can’t look that old. well . . . you’ll love this one. My name is Alice, and I was sitting in the waiting room for my first appointment with a

new dentist. I noticed his diploma on the wall, which bore his full name. Suddenly, I remembered a tall, handsome, dark-haired boy with the same name had been in my high school class some 30-odd years ago. Could he be the same guy that I had a secret crush on, way back then? Upon seeing him,

however, I quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, grayhaired man with the deeply lined face was way too old to have been my classmate. After he examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended Morgan Park High School . “Yes. yes, I did. I’m a Mustang,’ he gleamed

with pride. “When did you graduate?’ I asked. “In 1975. Why do you ask?’ “You were in my class!’, I exclaimed. He looked at me closely. Then, that ugly, old, bald, wrinkled faced, gray-haired, decrepit, rotter asked: “What did you teach?”

The Mildura Rural City Council unveiled the plans publicly for the first time this week following several years working closely with key sporting groups. It’s now up to the public to have its say on the plan before more detailed work is done ahead of the start of construction on the many components in the plan. One of the bigger winners to come out of the plan is also one of the biggest sporting groups – indoor sports. Indoor Sporting Group spokesman Paul Freckleton said many indoor sports have effectively stalled due to a lack of sporting venues and facilities in Sunraysia. •  Continued Page 22





A $25million plan to expand and upgrade Sunraysia’s sporting venues has been given the green light by key sporting stake holders. The plan includes a new complex on the corner of Deakin Avenue and Sixteenth Street in South Mildura, which will include two sporting ovals, one of which will become the district’s premier football ground. Estimated at $22.5million, the complex will boast state-ofthe art indoor facilities catering for sports including squash, netball, basketball, volleyball and table tennis as well as kiosk facilities, office space and function rooms. According to the plans, there would initially be five multilined indoor courts which could be used for many of the aforementioned sports, with capacity for another five courts in future as demand increases. One of the outdoor grounds would be of AFL practice match standard, including the changeroom facilities, while the other would accommodate cricket matches. Mildura Recreation Reserve will also come in for attention after a decade of debate over its future between the three major user groups - the Imperials and Mildura football clubs and the Mildura Harness Racing Club. As has been previously mooted, one of the football clubs will relocate to the South Mildura facility – widely tipped to be Mildura – while the harness racing track will be extended to 900 metres, with a $2.5million funding injection from Harness Racing Victoria, among other upgrades at the venue. President of the Sunraysia Football Netball League, Peter Congress this week backed plans for both the existing Mildura Recreation Reserve and the South Mildura facility.

Flying start for latest airport upgrade THE Mildura Airport is on the cusp of yet another major upgrade, this time to the facility’s arrivals and baggage area. In just over two months the airport will boast a carousel-style baggage system

and relocated arrivals point as part of a multi-million dollar ongoing works program. “As part of our overall terminal upgrade and tarmac works we’ve actually identified some major ar-

eas of conflict within passenger movements within the terminal and as part of the grant from Regional Development Victoria we are required to double the size of our baggage arrivals area,” airport manager Bill Burke, RIGHT, said. “Now in doing that we’ve decided to take it on the chin, put in a belt instead of people taking their luggage off the baggage trollies. There’ll be a carousel into the arrivals area just like any (larger) airport. It will get rid of a lot of confusion.” The new arrivals area will be about 30 metres to the east of the existing arrivals point as part of the upgrade. “We’ve decided to rationalise the entry point for the terminal to take away the congestion of people coming into the middle of the terminal and to bring them into where they really need to be, which is where the bags are going to be collected from,” Mr Burke said. Work on the new upgrades will start on Monday and are expected to

taken between eight and nine weeks to complete. During this period an alternative area will be created, minimising any disruptions for passengers during the construction phase. The works are the latest in a massive upgrade schedule, which has already seen significant work done to the airport’s tarmac and runway areas, LEFT. Once completed four Boeing 737-size aircraft could be accommodated at any one time at the airport. The need for the upgrade was made clear several weeks ago when a Boeing 737 was forced to land in Mildura due to hazardous conditions in Adelaide. The aircraft was parked in one of the older areas which hasn’t been upgraded and actually sunk several inches into the tarmac. While there was no risk to passengers or airport staff, it did highlight the value of the current works being undertaken at the airport. – BEN PISCIONERI

Wine industry woes spark dried fruits interest revival By BEN PISCIONERI AS the winegrape industry continues to suffer under the weight of a massive oversupply of some varieties, increasing numbers of growers could be looking to the dried grape industry as an alternative. In a bid to help these growers make an informed decision the Australian Dried Fruits Association’s (ADFA) Mildura branch has organised a workshop on Wednesday to provide all the information they’ll need on the topic. Mildura branch president Warren Lloyd said the workshop was about providing growers with options and ensuring as many growers as possible stayed in the grape industry. “We don’t want to see more areas going to waste,” Mr Lloyd said this week. “We want to see growers remain productive and if that means converting to dried fruit it’s something we’d like to support.” Mr Lloyd stressed the workshop isn’t about trying to lure winegrape growers to dried fruit it’s about helping growers stay viable and get the information they need. “It’s (converting to dried fruit) not going to suit everyone, but it may just suit some growers,” he said. “It’s going to depend on a range of factors including the root stocks they have, whether they can top graft, the width of their rows,

the standard of their posts, these types of things. “But if all the pieces fall into place, it may mean they can convert relatively cheaply and quickly and be back into production.” Unlike the winegrape industry, the dried grape sector is in the midst of a resurgence, with a 40

percent increase in tonnage over the past 12 months and increasing prices. The workshop will feature key figures in the dried grape industry including Ivan Shaw, who developed the swing-arm trellis, the Victorian and Murray Valley Vine Improvement Association’s (VMV-

VIA) Gary Thomas, who will speak on root stocks, and Ashley Johnstone, who instigated the workshop, and will speak on the costs involved in converting a property to dried fruit. Mr Johnstone’s costings will including scenarios based around converting existing vines and starting from scratch. Other speakers include the ADFA’s deputy chairman, Allan Long, who will speak on the role and future of the Association, and Sunbeam Foods’ David Swain. Mr Lloyd said if growers attend the session and decide to go ahead with a shift to dried fruit further workshops would be held in the future to provide all the information they require. He said Wednesday’s workshop could also be useful for existing dried grape growers interesting in purchasing winegrape properties and converting to dried grapes. The workshop will get underway at 4pm and begin with presentations from speakers, concluding with a barbecue about 6pm, when growers can talk with speakers about their specific situations. It will be held on Warren Lloyd’s fruit property which is in Benetook Avenue, between Fifteenth and Sixteenth Streets, and will be signed from the road. For more information contact the ADFA’s industry development officer, John Hawtin, on 5023 5174.

Camp fires prove costly TWO fishermen who left camp fires unattended while they were angling on the Murray River have been fined in separate cases heard by Mildura and Robinvale Magistrates’ Courts. In separate incidents, a 51 year-old Goulburn man and 50 year-old Robinvale man were each fined $300, with costs, for offences detected during Easter forest patrols. Department of Sustainability and Environment prosecuting officer Geoff Tyers said one of the men was camping at Mulcra Island, north west of Mildura, and the other at Gadsdens’ Bend, near Robinvale. “On both occasions campfires were left alight and unattended while the men had gone fishing. The fires were in pits, however flames were clearly visible,” he said. “Public land areas along the Murray River have a high level of dry leaf litter and other fuels on the ground, which are easily ignited.” Mr Tyers said while it was fortunate that temperatures were moderate during the Easter holiday period, gusty wind conditions were prevalent. “A single ember blown from either of the campfires could have quite easily led to a major fire event,” he said. “It’s important that visitors to our forests, parks and reserves are aware that campfires must not be left unattended under any circumstances.” Campfire offences carry a maximum fine of $10,000 and two years imprisonment. “If people are going to ignite a campfire, they must do so safely,” he said. “They must ensure that it is placed into a 30cm deep pit and the fire area cannot be any larger than one square metre. The area around the fire must also be cleared up to three metres from flammable material.”

High locust alert at Broken Hill, Menindee AREAS of southwest NSW close to Mildura have been placed on high plague locust alert after monitoring by the NSW Government. The Australian Plague Locust Commission has forecast large hatchings, starting next month, as close as Menindee and Broken Hill. NSW Minister for Primary Industries, Ian MacDonald, said there was a danger of plague locusts “sweeping across parts of the State” unless farmers played their part by reporting egg beds. “In autumn we received almost 5000 locust reports from landholders – this means we are facing a very active spring,” he said. “Most landholders wait until locusts hatch before taking action, but this is too late to ensure sufficient resources will be available.

The need to know “Authorities need to know now where locusts have laid their eggs, or where swarms were spotted so that surveillance can be carried out to get an accurate handle on the area that can be affected in spring.” Plague locusts have been one of the biggest threats to Australian agriculture over many years, with the potential of large swarms to devour everything in their path while on the wing. Outbreaks have also been predicted in parts of northern Victoria, and observers say the Mallee would

• PLAGUE PROPORTIONS: Locusts, LEFT, can form vast ‘clouds’ as they swarm, devouring all in their path and posing a great threat to Australian agriculture. be under threat given the right conditions of temperature and wind direction. In Victoria, egg-bearing locusts have been recorded throughout 1.25 million hectares, including the irrigation district north of Shepparton. This was noticeably more activity than in the 2005-06 outbreak. “What we’re heading for is the potential for a fairly significant hatching of locusts come the first half of October this year,” director of the Australian Plague Locust Commission Chris Adriaansen said this week. Victoria’s plague locust commissioner, Andrew Tomkins, agreed

that several factors indicated locusts could be a threat this year. Locusts seen in Victoria this year were at a higher density than in 2005-06, in better condition and carried more eggs.

Just 10 days to act Authorities have about 10 days to act … when locusts are big enough to identify, but too young to fly, being the best time to attack them with insecticide. The threat has been discussed at meetings held by the primary industry departments of both major States and the Australian Plague Locust Commission.

The Australian Plague Locust is a native species that occurs naturally in the far north west of NSW and adjacent areas of Queensland and South Australia. It is one of many locust species. The ability of locusts to form into dense swarms as adults makes them formidable eating machines that can devastate crops. The highly mobile nature of swarms and their ability to migrate over large distances means that virtually all agricultural areas are at risk of damage. It is possible for locusts to travel up to several hundred kilometres per night given the right wind conditions.

Most species of locust feed mainly on grasses. They thrive on grasses and cereal crops such as wheat, however when there is little green grass or wheat available they will eat a wide range of plants including horticulture crops, pasture, grapevines and trees. An Australian Plague Locust eats up to half its body weight a day. If a medium or high-density swarm landed on a pasture, lawn, golf course, park, or similar grassed area, all the grass is likely to be eaten within a few hours.

Highly unpredictable The behaviour of a swarm is highly unpredictable and a swarm will sometimes fly over apparently suitable crops. Damage to crops is often worse when conditions are very dry and they eat the only green vegetation remaining. When there is an abundance of green grass, the threat of damage to crops is often reduced. Landholders have been encouraged to peg out any locust infested areas for easy future identification. The DPI has urged that landholders continually monitor affected areas for signs of locusts laying eggs. More information can be found on the Australian Plague Locust Commission website, and the locust hotline to report any activity is 1300 13 5559.

Stepping out of the driver’s seat THERE are no aged-related requirements to holding a licence in Victoria. However, there may come a time when it will be necessary to reduce or cease driving. The advice of your doctor and other health professionals is very important. A wise driver will also listen carefully if their spouse, relatives or friends are concerned about their driving. Older drivers are generally considered to be safe, experienced and cautious, but statistics show that the risk of a casualty crash, per kilometer driven, is quite high for older drivers. If an older driver is involved in a crash, the outcome is likely to be more severe, because older people are more easily injured and take longer to recover. For many of us, driving a car represents independence, convenience, mobility and quality of life. Whilst maintaining this independence and mobility for as long as possible is important, so to is preparing for the time when you or your partner are no longer able to drive. If you plan ahead, the transition from driver to non-driver can be smooth and have minimal effect on your lifestyle. There are various things that you can consider now

to make retiring from driving easier: • Plan to make fewer trips. For example, try to organise to do your shopping on the same day that you have other appointments. • Plan each trip so that you can avoid major intersections. • Try to avoid peak hour traffic times or at night • Maybe ask family or friends to drive. • Are you near a bus

stop, or can you use a taxi? Many Councils offer community buses or volunteer drivers that can pick you up and drive you to your destination. There are many things to consider when you should begin to limit your driving or to stop altogether. They may include: • Difficulty maintaining concentration while driving • Trouble judging traffic gaps and at intersections • Feeling uncomfortable

or nervous while driving, especially in heavy traffic • More ‘near misses’ or small dents and scratches on the vehicle • Slower response to an unexpected situation • Difficulty in checking over your shoulder when changing lanes • Friends and family not wanting to drive with you. Adult children are often concerned about the driving ability of their aging parents, but are unsure how to broach the topic. Convincing parents to give up driving can be an emotionally wrenching task. Bring up the topic indirectly, for example “I saw a newspaper article about older drivers” or “I heard Mrs. Smith gave up driving”. Avoid criticising or making them feel attacked. Give them a copy of “The Victorian Older Driver’s Handbook” available from VicRoads, which contains a self assessment checklist and discusses many issues facing older drivers. Any questions or enquires about road rules can be forwarded to Denis Jewell 5021 3662 • Information resourced from Victorian Road Rules Hand Book and the VicRoads website:


Mildura Weekly - 24/7/09

If you’ve been a beneficiary in any way of the more than $1million that Wentworth’s years, this is the man you need to thank. His name is Rob Hunt, the now former managing

Rob’s way. You By GRANT MAYNARD HE’S way too modest to ever admit to it, but his deeds will ensure Rob Hunt’s name lives on. His contribution to the Bendigo Bank, to the banking industry and to the City of Bendigo will see to that, but he will be remembered much further afield too, in hundreds of small communities around Australia, like Wentworth and Merbein, that have benefited enormously from his vision. Mr Hunt, now 58, will be recalled in these communities as the major architect of the Bendigo Bank Community Bank model. He is a man of vision, intellect, influence, and compassion... but you wouldn’t know it just by talking to him... he keeps his light well hidden under his proverbial bushel. But, it is impossible to separate the achievements and growth of the Bendigo Bank, and that of the community banking network across our wide brown land, from those of Mr Hunt himself. Mr Hunt joined the bank in 1973, after a six-year stint with the Commercial Bank of Australia. One of his roles with the CBA was as a relieving teller in northern Victoria. He worked for a while at Rupanyup, a town that was to become synonymous with his name and the success of community banking more than a quarter of a century later. Mr Hunt was appointed chief executive officer of the then Bendigo Building Society in 1988, and appointed to the board in 1990. He was the engine room of the organisation’s foray into the computer age, brought Visa to mainstream Australia, steered the bank and the industry through the Pyramid Building Society collapse, was in charge when it reached bank status in 1995, and when it merged with The Adelaide Bank in 2007. When he was appointed CEO in 1988, the bank had market capitalisation of less than $50million, 32 branches and 250 staff. Bendigo and Adelaide Bank now has assets under management of more than $48billion and market capitalisation of about $3billion with 430 branches and 235 Community Bank branches, employing about 5000 staff around Australia. Since the first one was estab-

lished in Rupanyup and Minyip in 1998, the Community Bank has been saving small and close-knit communities and their businesses from potential economic ruin. It has also allowed those communities to flourish, with profits being handed back, and there is no more indicative model than Wentworth’s highly successful branch.

Officially opened on March 18, 1999, by television personality Ray Martin, the event was a big day for a town that had been without banking services for two years after Westpac abandoned the town. The number of community banks across Australia has doubled in the past four years, and at the same time customers have tripled

their banking business commitment to the community network, increasing it to more than $11billion. More importantly, according to Mr Hunt, is more than $18million in community bank branch profits that have been returned to community projects through a program of community grants.



The Wentworth branch, which celebrated 10 years in business this year, reached the magical milliondollar milestone this year when it distributed more than $140,000 in grants. “This is a fantastic milestone to reach,” Wentworth Community Bank chairman, Cheryl Rix, said. “When we first opened the

can bank on it!

branch a decade ago we wanted to return banking services to our town and make a community a better place to live in. We have achieved both goals but this has only been made possible through the dedication of our board and staff and our

loyal customers and members of the community who have shown strong support enabling us to achieve great things together.” Meanwhile, Mr Hunt’s involvement in the setting up of community-based organisations such as

Bendigo Community Telco, Community Telco Australia and Lead On will also form part of his legacy to the community. He does not freely talk about his impact on the bank or his time at the top, but recently gave a small

insight into his motivations. “When I first joined this organisation I was really taken at the connection it had with its customers and its community,” he said. “It was born of community by community. People put it togeth-

er because it had a need. “It was always my desire to not only gently move into banking with all the value systems and all the things we hold dear, but wouldn’t it be great if we could take this style of banking and apply it to communities all around Australia and give them the same benefits having a local financier for their own community. “The Community Bank, to a large degree, was reflective of history because, in essence, we have created a bit of a super building society for all these local communities. In effect it is a financier that becomes a big part of their own community.” Mr Hunt said the bank was well suited to continuing that philosophy. “One of the strategic advantages this place has is we are in a regional centre where customers will tell you if you are getting it wrong,” he said. “That is a real advantage. To me the one basic trait this organisation has is its ability to truly understand its role. I think that is what makes it a unique organisation.” So what’s next for the man who has worked almost around the clock? “I have lots and lots of unfinished business in what I call the community engagement models and to really properly complete writing up all of those models that will go on operating for the next 50 years,” he said. “I am also looking forward to spending more time with my family and my grandchildren, as well as a few exciting adventures. “I will build a bit of a retreat in the Otways, which is going to be something I have wanted to do, an eco-style house. “All those sorts of things that tend to get put on the sideboard until you have the time.” Wentworth Community Bank board chairman, Cheryl Rix, described Mr Hunt as “one of the most inspiring people I have ever met”. Some CEOs can be intimidating and daunting, she said; “But not Rob. He has a lovely personal style.” •  Continued Page 10

One for the road upsetting for Bill

SOUVENIR-hunters are causing a bit of grief to former long-time Millewa farmer Bill Beer. Bill is 85. His dad was one of the pioneers of the Millewa, and one of the roads was named in honour of the family. Bill lived there for 57 years before getting off the farm, just off the Werrimull Road a few kilometres from Lake Cullulleraine. The trouble is, people keep pinching the sign that says ‘Beer’s Road,’ obviously for their bar back home, the back shed, or just as an unusual keepsake. “I know for sure that one of the signs is in a pub in Hindley Street in Adelaide,” Bill said this week. He says the sign has been replaced by council at least four times, probably more, and is surprised at the time and trouble thieves take to steal the unusual signage. After a theft a few months ago, Bill made up his own steel ‘Beer’s Road’ sign and attached it to the post himself, using super-tight nuts and bolts to make it secure. But that didn’t deter thieves this week. When they couldn’t undo the bolts, they simply used steel cutters to shear off the sign as near as they could to the post. Bill, now retired and living in Mildura but a frequent visi-

tor to the Millewa, says he has reported the theft of the signs, and the vandalism, to authorities, but realises it’s almost impossible to trace the culprits. Although it’s not his responsibility, he says he will try to have the sign replaced again, and has urged anyone who knows anything about the missing signs to contact police. “It’s only a small thing, but it’s my family history, and it’s very upsetting,” Bill said. Werrimull Postmistress Janice Woodberry said yesterday she could understand Bill being upset, as a lot of townsfolk felt the same. “This happens far too often,” she said. “We are concerned that if an ambulance has to called out here, any unnecessary delay or confusion caused by lack of signage might have serious consequences.” Janice, who has lived in the Millewa all her life, said council had done a great job in signposting the roads, but over the past decade the Beer’s Road sign just kept disappearing. “The last one, the one that Bill did, lasted only a few days,” she said. “Obviously some young bucks were going past and felt they just had to take it for some reason.” Anyone with information on any of the missing signs has been asked to contact Werrimull police station.

You can bank on it! • From Page 9 “He will certainly be missed... he strongly held true to the concept (community banking) from day one. “He is a believer that rural communities like Wentworth and Merbein can help themselves, by using their capital ‘internally’,” Cheryl said. “He was no doubt challenged at times about the longterm profitability and the ability for growth of his community banking model, but it is admirable that he believed in it so strongly that he felt compelled to see it become the success it is today.” Mr Hunt attended the Wentworth Community Bank branch opening a decade ago and, was an reluctant apology for the FEATURING Ever Bit Brilliant In more Ways Than 10thEver birthday celebrations held in March. • EARLY DAYS: At the opening of the Wentworth branch ten years ago in March 1999 “His community banking are, left to right, Ray Martin, bank board chairman to this day Cheryl Rix and Rub Hunt. model has been proven to work

and be very worthwhile,” Cheryl said. “It has never been about making big money, more about providing towns with a great service and it works! That is reflected in the high satisfaction and approval ratings the Bendigo Bank receives. “Bendigo takes the meaning of the word ‘community’ seriously.” Cheryl said it was comforting to know Mr Hunt will continue to sit on the national Community Bank Strategic Advisory Board, established up 12 months ago to advise Australia’s S U N R AY S I A growing Bendigo Bank Community Bank network and to guide the model’s future... building on its strengths and addressing any deficiencies.

cent retirement, there have been plenty of commentators quick to dismiss the prospects for regional banks,” she said. “But this ignores what is actually happening at grass roots level, where our customers are quite happy to support the bank that supports them and their community.” Cheryl said the Wentworth and District Community Bank was proof of Mr Hunt’s comments. “We continue to grow our business and the contribution we make to the community,” she said. “And I share Mr Hunt’s confidence about our continued growth prospects, and the more people support us, the more we can support community.” S U Nour R A Y S I A

The economic recession has hit Victoria hard. There are job losses, mortgage woes and other hardships. But hopefully, there is some light at the end of the tunnel for struggling families. We’re supporting a worthy cause that is aimed at…

Putting food on the table

THE Mildura Weekly is supporting a unique State-wide campaign aimed at helping charity groups put food on the table of struggling Victorian families. We have joined forces with Melbourne’s Leader Community Newspaper Group and sister publication the Bendigo Weekly to publicise the ‘Feed Melbourne’ campaign, which aims to raise at least $1million between now and September 18. Although the campaign is Melbourne-based, one of its main organisers said this week that all charitable groups across the State, with an emphasis on isolated areas such as Mildura, would be included. Editor-in-chief of the Leader Community Newspaper Group, Toni Hetherington, said if the appeal was successful, Mildura charities who distributed food to the needy would be in line for grants of up to $10,000 to help them collect, store and distribute food products. “Every cent of the $1 million raised by Feed Melbourne will go to Victorian charities to equip them with items such as vans, fridges and freezers,” Ms Hetherington said. “Experts believe that 370,000 Victorians will run

people who will otherwise go without.” Marcus Godinho, CEO of FareShare said the growing number of people in Victoria going without food was largely hidden, “but particularly crippling.” He said one of the best things ‘Feed Melbourne’ could do was to help charities financially by increasing their capacity to receive more food donations and hand out more meals. John Dee, founder of ‘Do Something,’ said the current economic recession was affecting people’s ability to put food on the table. “Hard-working Australians are finding themselves out of a job and unable to feed their families,” he said. “This is why we’ve launched ‘Feed Melbourne.’ We can’t sit by and do nothing while our fellow Australians go hungry.” Organisers of the campaign joined in asking regional Victorians to join

their Melbourne counterparts in supporting the appeal. Donations to ‘Feed Melbourne’ can be made online at www.FeedMelbourne., or in person at any NAB branch. Phone inquiries should be directed to 03 9875 8383. Mildura charitable groups who believe they are eligible for the $10,000 grants should contact the same number. “Once they nominate, and when there are sufficient funds, a judging panel will decide the organizations that are eligible to receive the grants, based on the criteria of them being able to improve their community usefulness in the collection, storage and distribution of food,” Ms Hetherington said. “Charity groups in the Mildura region who are running soup kitchens, meals services or delivering food parcels are all eligible.”

Meals on Wheels partnership proves its value By VINNIE RODI

• FOOD FOR THOUGHT: It’s a success story worth smiling about, from left to right, Barbie and Thea Cornell, Jill Mazzini, Meg Nathan, Mildura Base Hospital hotel services manager, David Grenfell, and in the background in black chef Kelly Kempton. Grenfell, said the hospital saw the partnership as a way to give something back to the community, and aid those going through a tough time. “Meals on Wheels is a fantastic organisation,” he said. “The work these people do each day, and with such a small number of volunteers is amazing. “I’ve made a few deliveries myself, and it’s definitely a service that Mildura needs. From our point of view we couldn’t think of a better partnership to form within our community, and we’re excited to see this relationship continue to grow.” This year will also mark

MOW’s 45th anniversary since its inception, with the group set to host an Annual General Meeting in September for all past, present and future members to attend. Barbie said that while the aim of the AGM was to celebrate the group’s history and achievements, it was also a chance to try and recruit new volunteers to the cause. “Volunteers are probably the one area where we are starting to struggle,” she said. “We really need more people to become involved with the organisation if we’re to continue. • Continued Page 22

MILDURA Meals on Wheels in partnership with the Mildura Base Hospital has helped produce and deliver thousands of meals to the region’s less fortunate and elderly. It’s a relationship that has proved beneficial for both parties, with MOW donating $13,000 toward cooking equipment, and the hospital allowing the group to establish a base of operations in its kitchen area, and use equipment to meet client’s needs. All donated funds have gone toward improving the hospital’s cooking equipment, with a motorised delivery trolley purchased to help ease staff burdens and a ‘Bratt Pan’ cooker also installed to increase the quality and quantity of food prepared. Between the two organisations an average 135,000 meals are prepared each year, with the latest additions helping to reduce the workload. MOW coordinator Barbie Cornell said the group’s financial contributions was their way of saying thank-you to the hospital for their support. “I don’t think we would have achieved anything without the Mildura Base Hospital and its staff,” she said. “The main role of our organisation is to provide a hot meal for those less fortunate or too old to look after themselves, and it’s because of our relationship with the hospital that we’ve been able to fulfil that role.” Barbie said MOW wasn’t just about ensuring clients ate healthy and nutritious food, but to also provide sought after company. “Some of our clients don’t have family living in the region and it can become very lonely for them,” she said. “While we don’t spend a lot of time with our clients, those times where we get to have a chat or simply share a cup of tea can make all the difference.” Mildura Base Hospital Hotel Services Manager, David

Memorials to the war sombre reminder of • INSIDE THE GATES: This photograph shows what is believed to be Julius Grossman inside the memorial garden he created.

the Lisa Cooper


A POIGNANT feature of almost every town and city across Australia is a memorial to the local war dead. And while they may vary in size, shape and design, they all personalise the devastation of war felt right across the country, during the war years and beyond, after hostilities ended. The Mallee is no different, with its official memorials dotted across the region. But few people would realise there were many other ‘unofficial’ memorials erected and dedicated to local war dead in the early years after World War One, the knowledge and significance of which has been lost over time. One of the earliest memorials unveiled in Mildura was in memory of three boys who lived in Mildura prior to their enlistment. All three were employees of a Mr J. T. Grossman, and they all lost their lives during the Great War.

Lest we forget Julius Theodore Grossman was a man who had spent a considerable amount of his own time and funds in creating the memorial garden dedicated to three young men who had touched his life. Born in Geelong in 1863, Grossman decided to settle in Mildura after the establishment of the irrigation colony by the Chaffey Brothers. He arrived in 1888 and selected a block of 10 acres, and a town allotment. The house he built there became one of the settlement’s first buildings. Grossman eventually worked for the Chaffey Broth-

ers as an expert horticulturalist. He was also a member of the Mildura Shire from 1898, was a member and ex-President of the local hospital, and a member of Mildura Horticultural Society. His 10 acres was under fruit cultivation which included sultanas and currants, and located at ‘Langtree Park’ where he resided, on the corner of 12th Street and Langtree Parade. The memorial plaque and garden that he dedicated to his three young friends was on that property, and the public unveiling was witnessed by a large number of locals on Wednesday, October 15 1919, making it one

of the first, if not the first, memorial dedicated to Mildura’s war dead.

High praise indeed Grossman had created an “ornamental frontage” on the property near his house “which would do credit to a memorial park,” according to the Mildura Cultivator newspaper. Fenced along the front, with a large double ornamental gate as well as two pedestrian gates and gravelled pathways, one of the front fence posts had attached to it a brass plaque, bearing the words “The Seggie-Hart-Evans Gateway – 1914-1918.”

The three boys were Robert Harvey Harcourt Seggie, Horace Arthur Hart and William Guisippi Evans, who all worked for Mr Grossman prior to their enlistment. Mr James Mathew JP undertook the public unveiling in front of an “unexpectedly large” crowd, but few relatives of the boys. The family of Corporal Hart, living in Dunedin, New Zealand, were unable to attend, and Sergeant Seggie was said to have had “few relatives.” But the mother and sister of Willie Evans were present. Mr Matthew remarked that the Memorial Gateway “was just another indica-

tion of the great kindness and sympathetic nature of Mr Grossman, who was willing to expend a large sum of money in showing respect for them.”

A place to ponder The gateway erected by the side of a “quiet, retired road” (12th Street) was said to be one of those places past where one could not go “without solemn thoughtfulness” of the sacrifices of others. Corporal Horace Arthur Hart served with the 8th Battalion AIF. Born in Ballarat, he was one of Australia’s first enlistees, signing up on Au-

gust 18, 1914. Horace was a builder by trade, and came to Mildura from Ouyen. He left Australia as part of the first contingent of Australian’s sent after the outbreak of war, but wouldn’t return. Corporal Hart was killed in action during the Allied attack on Turkish positions at Krithia, Gallipoli, on May 8, 1915. A letter from a soldier named ‘Dyer’, given to the Red Cross, told how Hart and another man, at great risk, had carried him to safety after a Gallipoli fight, and how Horace had immediately volunteered to go out on a very dangerous mission. It was

dead are a lives lost during that mission that Horace met his death. He was just 26. Corporal Horace Arthur Hart lies with no known grave, but is remembered at the Helles Memorial at Gallipoli. Situated on a small hill known as Goztepe, near the original Anzac landing and evacuation place, the limestone walls record the names of 20,763 Allied soldiers who died with no known grave, including 248 Australians. Almost all the deaths recorded at the Helles Memorial were the casualties of the battle of Krithia on May 8, the same battle that took the life of Horace Hart. Sergeant Robert Harvey Harcourt Seggie served with the 6th Battalion AIF on the Western Front. Working as a labourer for Mr Grossman, he enlisted on June 4, 1915 at age 21 and gave his address at the time as ‘Merbein, near Mildura’ with his next of kin an uncle in Toorak. Mr Matthew described Robert as having a “fine, quiet manliness” about him. By all accounts, Robert had made a great impression on those around him, especially his officers and fellow comrades. Seggie was well known to be a reliable, steady worker. Friends wrote that he was “the most popular sergeant in the Sixth Battalion,” and “particularly game under fire.”

Turned down Seggie was recommended several times for awards. The first being on September 8, 1916 for a Military Medal, the same recommendation later being used for the Croix de Guerre award. It reads; “At Pozieres 14th to 22nd August 1916 he inspired the men with confidence and showed a fine example of untiring energy and self sacrificing devotion to duty.” Both recommendations were turned down. The third recommendation was for a Mentioned in Despatches, which reads; “rendered very conspicuous service during the last six months, on several occasions when the line has been heavily shelled, have held (his) men well in hand by their fine example of cool courage.” Reports at the time say Robert was fatally wounded as he sat in his dugout in the battlefield at Rouen, northern France. He was admitted to the 45th Casualty Clearing Station on

•  IN MEMORY: The plaque announcing the Seggie-HartEvans Gateway, ABOVE, and BELOW, on the outside looking in... the memorial garden from the front. March 3, 1917 with multiple gun shot wounds. There was a slight improvement in his health after being transferred to the 3rd Stationary Hospital on the 8th, but with severe wounds to his back and thighs, Robert would not survive. The Reverend Tudor Phillips wrote a letter to the Red Cross, one that would have been sent home to loved ones, on May 25, 1917. It reads; “This NCO was admitted suffering from wounds in various parts of the body. He was dangerously ill at the time and remained so until his death. He suffered greatly at times, but not towards the end. I have been in constant communication with Miss N Treadwell of Merbein, Victoria, to whom I sent all particulars immediately after his death.” Robert Seggie, at age 22, died of his wounds on April 30, 1917, and was buried at St Sever Cemetery Extension in Rouen. Private William Guisippi Evans served with the 60th Battalion. He was considered the only ‘native’ of the three men, having lived in the district his entire life before enlisting. The son of William Walter and Alice Maud Evans of Magnolia Avenue, Mildura, Willie worked as a plumber before enlisting in the AIF aged just 18. Willie was described to the crowd as “dutiful and respectful, manly and brave” and many letters that had been sent home to his grieving parents from friends, officers and his Battalion

Chaplain were read out to the crowd. Willie was in charge of a Lewis gun during the Battle of Amiens, which occurred early in August ,1918, his regiment said to have advanced “1100 yards on August 7 and another 2000 yards the next day, establishing their positions while fresh troops moved in.” Willie was shot by a sniper on August 9, 1918, dying of his wounds soon after. Aged just twenty years and three months, he is buried at St Pierre Cemetery, Amiens, France. The Armistice was signed three months later. James Matthew stated; “All three men were of fine and faithful character, who died becomingly for their Country.”

Perfectly tendered As those in attendance watched the ceremony, and afterwards as the solemn crowd walked at their leisure through Mr Grossman’s perfectly tendered garden, loved ones and friends never far from their thoughts, photographs of each of the three men, and one of the original grave site cross of Robert Seggie, hung on the fence posts alongside their plaque. The memorial plaque and garden was such a simple gesture, erected in remembrance to these three beloved lives lost, out of almost 200 local men. And yet its poignancy and sentiment was such that it was highly admired for many years. •  Continued Page 22

High winds make a powerful friend By ALAN ERSKINE

EVEN from a distance they are huge, row after row of them, rising from the earth like giant sentinels. The first of these whispering columns created a great deal of controversy when first suggested for Australia around 2001. But since then, wind farms have been springing up all over the country, with at least 46 either established, or in the pipeline. They are becoming increasingly popular because they are a renewable source of energy, without any carbon dioxide emissions. I happened across Australia’s biggest wind farm on a recent visit to the Yorke Peninsula region of South Australia. Construction of the Wattle Point Wind Farm, south of Edithburgh, began in July, 2004, and was completed the following April. Its life span has been put at 25 years. The farm has 55 wind turbines on 11.5 square kilometres of land, and is said to generate 91 megawatts of clean, green, renewable energy when the wind turbines are at full power, or 312,000 MW (about two percent) of SA’s electricity in an average year. Apparently that’s enough to supply 52,000 homes with all their power needs.

Towers in various sizes The towers spread throughout coastal and inland Australia come in various sizes – the ones at Wattle Point are a towering 67 metres, or 110 metres if you measure to the tip of the blade. Electricity generated at Wattle Point is fed directly into Electranet’s 132 kV main transmission system, and then into the national electricity grid. More and more electricity companies are turning to wind power to make electricity. Country Energy, a power provider in Sunraysia, is a partner in four of Australia’s largest wind farms - Blayney and the Crookwell in regional NSW, Lake Bonney in South Australia, and Wonthaggi in Victoria. Other wind farms are spread across the country, in regions as remote as Esperance and Albany in WA, Windy Hill in Queensland, Starfish Hill near Cape Jervis, Cathedral

Rocks near Port Lincoln, and Silverton, near Broken Hill. This will be the nearest wind farm to Mildura, and eventually, Australia’s biggest, with almost 600 turbines planned, generating enough power for 200,000 homes. The $2.2 billion venture will not only provide a valuable energy source for regional NSW, but should provide about 700 jobs during the five-year construction period, and as many as 120 when up and running.

It’s a big project The renewable energy group Epuron, part of the Macquarie Group, proposed the wind farm in 2007. Stage one will involve erecting 282 wind turbines, with the number increasing to 598 by the final stage. Silverton is one of 14 wind farms with a total capacity output of 2486 megawatts approved for construction in NSW since 2005. The Government has said that when all the wind farms are operating they will save more than six million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions annually, the equivalent of taking more than one million cars off the road, and will have the capacity to power around 800,000 houses. Wind farm turbines automatically start turning when wind speed is greater than 15 km/hr. The turbines reach maximum power at wind speeds of 54 km/hr, and most are designed to automatically shut down in winds greater than 72 km/hr. Research shows that in recent years, there has been an unprecedented expansion in the renewable

• PUTTING THE WIND UP…Just two of the examples of some of the huge wind turbines that are spring up at various locations across Australia. While some companies go for isolated locations in regional centres (ABOVE) others prefer coastal locations like this one (LEFT) where high winds are a daily fact of life. Most of the turbine towers are well over 50metres, with blades measuring 30 metres or more.

production costs. Wind power doesn’t need fossil fuels. It is a clean energy source, and doesn’t directly produce carbon di-

Learning to climb the corporate ladder early By VINNIE RODI SOME believe the best way to prepare for the workforce is to simply get your hands dirty. For St Joseph’s Secondary College and Mildura Senior College Year 11 students, the opportunity to ‘own a business’ and run it their way, is a great chance to get a taste for the corporate world. The exercise is a Sunraysia Institute of TAFE and Australian Business Week initiative, set to be held between October 5 and 10. ABW aims to bring students from all around the country together in a simulated business environment, developing their ability to cooperate as a team. Activities will promote leadership and business judgement, and preparing students for the experiences, demands and deadlines faced once entering the ‘real world’. Locals will be split into 10 teams, with both MSC and St Joseph’s students working together to run a hospitality business, and hopefully turn it into a success.

The ‘hospitality simulation’ challenges participants to run a 200 bed full service hotel (consisting of 170 standard rooms, 20 deluxe rooms and 10 luxury rooms), with students adopting the roles of key personnel. They will elect a General Manager, with remaining team members to be split between marketing, operations and finance. To be considered a viable business, each team will need to produce a profit utilising the hotel’s available products. This includes hotel rooms, rental of conference space, meals and drinks and a variety of sundry items including gymnasiums, health spas etc. In the case of this model, participants will be considered a success if occupancy of rooms is high, their revenue exceeds the cost of making products available, and they increase the value of the hotel’s share price. The Sunraysia Institute of TAFE will host ‘business operations’, with 2009 marking the first time MSC students will participate. Organiser and SuniTAFE

teacher Greg Leslie said all three schools were looking to build on the success of last year’s event, which saw more than 50 St Joseph’s students participate. “Feedback was extremely positive,” he said. “Students performed well last year and from all reports learnt a great deal. “Business classes from Mildura Senior College were keen to get involved based on that success, and it’s been one of our aims to involve as many students as possible in the future. “So far more than 100 Year 11 students, all studying VCE and VCAL commerce related subjects, are set to participate.” St Joseph’s Secondary College teacher Paula Cox said the program allowed students to learn from a direct approach, putting all their knowledge from the classroom into practice. “The fantastic thing about the program is that they can make mistakes and then learn from them,” she said. •  Continued Page 19

High winds make a powerful friend •  From previous page Sunraysia, on the other hand, with its abundance of sunshine, has been selected as the ideal location for another major form of ‘green’ energy - solar power, and was recently selected as the site for the world’s largest solar power station, to be built by Solar Systems. Once completed, the $420 million project will

produce 270,000 megawatt hours of electricity each year, which would be enough to meet the power needs of more than 45,000 homes. The Solar Systems power station will employ technology developed by NASA for power generation in space. It will be centred around large numbers of heliostats which will be grouped into fields of 250. Heliostats are

sun-tracking mirrors which focus the sun’s rays onto highly efficient photovoltaic (PV) receivers that turn the sun’s rays into electricity. The technology is far more efficient than the more commonly seen solar panels fitted to people’s homes. The heliostats can collect and concentrate sunlight by 500 times, which is intense enough to melt steel.

Masons make very welcome donation By GRANT MAYNARD THEY missed out on $50,000 in grant funding they were hoping to secure from the Victorian Government so donations from the community, like the one recently given by the Freemasons, are doubly welcome. Mildura’s fledgling Men’s Shed group is now $2000 better off thanks to the Freemasons Public Charitable Foundation. It is a funding boost that has been warmly welcomed by the Shed’s steering committee chairman, Ron Dudley. “It is a wonderful gesture, and the money will certainly be put to good use,” he said. The group wants to raise about $150,000 to build and equip the large shed that will ultimately be its headquarters and house its workshop operations. The group is presently working out of a small shed provided by Mildura’s recycling success ‘Aroundagain’, one of the organisations the Men’s Shed has formed a working partnership with. Another they have strong ties to is the Christie Centre. The trio of groups has formed a winning, working alliance, with positive outcomes all three as well as the environment and the wider community. Men’s Shed volunteers are repairing damaged recycled articles for resale at Aroundagain with the proceeds from these initial sales to be shared by all three organisations. “The sales of refurbished goods are providing a small, but welcome initial source of funding for the Men’s Shed,” Ron said. When making the donation pre-

masons Public Charitable Foundation raises funds from the general public, as well as from Freemasons. Investment income funds raised by the foundation are then directed to public charitable enterprises across Victoria after being approved by the foundation and the Commissioner of Taxation, ensuring tax deductibility for all donations. Bob said past Sunraysia recipients of Freemasons’ grants have included the Christie Centre and Chaffey Aged Care at Merbein, and a little further afield the Manangatang Hospital. Ron said in light of the group being knocked back for funding by the State, donations like that from the Freemasons were “all the more opportune” and “more critical”. He said the group planned to raise a funding barometer in Deakin Avenue and begin appealing for public and corporate support to further the Mildura Men’s Shed plan. “Atlas Sheds have donated the materials for the barometer and it will be constructed in our workshop,” Ron said. “We hope to have it up soon.” The group has some funds in the kitty, Ron said, but will need a lot more assistance to its plans come to fruition. • GOOD ON YOU MATE: The Freemason’s Bob Tollner, left, and Men’s Shed steering committee chairman, Ron Dudley, share a story at the recent cheque presentation as Ron explains how the money will help the Shed project get off the ground.

Mildura Weekly ‘PLAY MAKERS’ Kicking Go for Local Business sentation, Masons’ Deputy Grand Master, Bob Tollner, explained that the donation had been made because of the value his organisation saw in the Men’s Shed concept.

The catalyst had been a talk Ron had given to the Sunraysia Daylight Lodge members “three or four months ago” about the Shed, and the aspirations of its volunteers.

“We considered it worthy of our support,” Bob said. He said the money has come from a fund that had been established two decades ago. The Free-

First home rises from the ashes.. MANY Sunraysia residents have played a part in helping re-start the lives of those affected by Victoria’s bushfires of January and February, especially ‘Black Saturday,’ February 7. This includes donation of money and goods, building expertise, many thousands of pine posts for fencing, and volunteers giving freely of time and expertise in the bushfire-affected areas. And now one local firm has helped its southern ‘cousins’ celebrate a special occasion – occupancy of the first home to be re-built in one of the affected areas…and it’s a story with special meaning for the youngsters of the house. Mildura’s Tony Morello is proud that the first home completed in the fireravaged Boolarra region, population 600, was JG King built, and as regional sales manager said the Mildura franchise was happy to be among the first Victorians to donate to the fire appeal, with Mildura staff also recently sending various goods to the fire-affected areas.

HOME, SWEET HOME: Jessica, Tania, Paul and Aaron Gauntlett outside the newly built Landsborough 235 JG King home.

“In this case, the Gauntlett family lost their home on daughter Jessica’s birthday,” he said. “Now it has been re-built, with the family inside in time to celebrate the 10th birthday of son Aaron.” The Gauntletts barely escaped with their lives – and a handful of birthday presents –and returned a few days later to find only the chimney standing. “The easiest thing to do would have been to take the insurance cheque and buy a new home somewhere else,” dad Paul Gauntlett said. “But we wanted the kids to keep on at their school and we like the area, so I started to call some builders instead.” He spoke to Dean Currie, Tony’s counterpart in Gippsland, to discuss one of JG King’s steel framed homes, and says after that it was just a formality, with the firm working ahead of time to make sure Aaron’s birthday could be celebrated “with a roof over their head.”

Tony said this week that being the first new home in Boolarra had aroused a lot of interest in the region, and a lot more people were now inquiring about the more fire-resistant steel framed homes. “We have opened up a shop front in Kinglake, with one of the people affected by the fires employed as a company salesperson,” he said. “He is among one of about 30 people we’ve quoted for to re-build their home in the bushfire-affected region.” Tony said he was among those to really feel for the families who had lost loved ones, homes and all their worldly possessions, and would join with JG King staff state-wide to continuing in a supporting role wherever possible. The fire that started on January 29 and which raged in the Strzelecki Ranges between Darlimurla and Boolarra was suspected to have been deliberately lit. In Boolarra, 30 houses, 82 sheds, nine cars and a pig farm were destroyed.

Loddon Mallee Integrated Services are bringing Petrea to Mildura for the workshops on Sunday, October 18, and Monday, October 19. The workshops will be of particular help for those dealing with loss, grief, depression, despair, and hopelessness. Others who may benefit are those simply wanting more peace or meaning in their lives. Petrea is a naturopath, herbalist, clinical, hypnotherapist, and also teaches yoga and meditation. Since recovering from leukaemia, she has counselled many thousands of people living with life-changing illness, grief, trauma and tragedy. She has written eight books including ‘Your Life Matters’ and ‘Spirited Women’ and has also produced relaxation and meditation CDs. She established the Petrea King Quest for Life Centre in 1998 and conducts seminars throughout Australia and internationally.

All set for Wentworth pre-Show IT’S back again, the annual precursor to the popular Wentworth Show, and commonly referred to as the ‘pre-show’. This year it is set down for Sunday, August 16, once again a fortnight before the show proper on the weekend of August 29 and 30th. Events get under way for one of the district’s

premier equine outings at 9am and include hacking; encouragement/topsy ring, novelties, show jumping and harness. Spectator admission is $2 per person or $5 a car. There is a $10 per powered site camping fee for competitors wanting to stay overnight Saturday with an entry fee of $3 per event.

Learning to climb the ladder • From Page 17 St Joseph’s Secondary College students Samuel Freeman, 16, and Bree Robbins, 17, both said they were excited to be taking part in the week-long program. “I think it’s going to be a great learning experience,” Sam said. “Hopefully I can walk away with some knowledge about the business world.” Bree said she was also looking forward to working with students from other schools, with each team to be comprised of five students from St Joseph’s College and five from MSC. “It’s going to be a lot of fun working with people I don’t know or don’t go to school with,” she said. “It will add an extra challenge to the project and make it even more interesting.”


Mr Leslie said the simulation had proved a great way for students to jump into the business world, allowing them to grab set activities “by the horns” to achieve desired results. “Students will be asked to present marketing prospects, prepare oral presentations and shoot a television commercial promoting their hotel,” he said. “It’s going to be a fullon experience, with daily operations left entirely to students. “While a couple of mentors will visit throughout the week to offer guidance on how to prepare oral presentations etc. for the most part students will be left to their own devices.” Results will be sent to ABW headquarters in Syd-

ney on a regular basis, with reports sent back to give students an idea of how they’re travelling. A number of awards will be handed out to highlight outstanding achievement, including best commercial, best company report and best website and PowerPoint presentation. An overall ‘hotel simulation’ winner will also be announced, something Sunraysia’s future businessmen and women will be vying for. “At the end of the day it’s a competition to see who can create the most successful hotel,” Mr Leslie said. “Our local ‘businesses’ will be up against teams from all around Australia, so it’s an opportunity to learn more about the day to day activities involved with running a business.”

He said while only two schools would take part this year, TAFE was already looking to register interest for 2010. “We’re also looking for businesses to come on board to act as mentors in 2009,” he said. “So far the response has been fantastic, but every extra set of hands would be welcome. “It’s a highly beneficial program for everyone involved, and I think worthwhile for local businesses to get involved with. “It gives the students an knowledgeable source of information, while giving businesses a chance to see the next generation up close.” For more information on Australian Business Week, or to register as a mentor contact Greg Leslie on 5022 3631.

Mildura Weekly - 24/7/09


Teagan Nathan


IT was a fairy tale wedding that came true. Everything went perfectly. That is how bride and groom, Teagan Clarke and Nathan Davis, described their special day. The couple was married at Gol Gol Ampelon Gardens by celebrant Alan Cameron, and watched by 120 friends and family. The bride was attended by Maid of Honour and her twin sister, Mindy, and bridesmaids Belinda Anderson and Julia Rowse. Standing by the groom were best man, Andrew Davis, and groomsmen Jason Davis and Larry Cavallo. The reception was held in the Grand Hotel ballroom and the couple honeymooned on “beautiful” Hamilton Island. The couple thanks Party by Design for “the amazing job they did with our decorations for the reception”; Amazing Cakes for the breathtaking wedding cake and Kim Chamblerlain for “the wonderful photos that she captured of our perfect day”.

Hi Darl, all the girls have had a huge week at work so we will be staying back late for champagne & tapas at

Dating in the Naughties! AS a single 30s-something woman I am all at once fascinated, and daunted, by the revolution of the dating process in the past 20 years. Allow me, if you will to take all you fellow 30-somethings on a walk down memory lane to the days of Blue Light discos and phone boxes! Aaah yes… the days when a note passed from table to table in the classroom was how we confirmed our interest in the opposite sex. By ticking a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ box, we answered the scary question of ‘Will you go out with me?’ I’ve always wondered though, go out where? Because, at the ripe old age of 15, there wasn’t really many options for ‘going out’. I do remember the ultimate social event being the monthly Blue Light disco that, for me and my best friend, became not so much a chance to try to ‘get on with’ the school hunk, but an outlet for our carefully choreographed dance moves that invariably resulted in free tickets to the next disco! If you are a fan of the movie ‘Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion’, then you will no doubt be familiar with the dance routines I’m talking about... reminiscent of the Young Talent Team in its hey day. I specifically remember one young man who sent me a rose with a cryptic message after meeting me once, then waited for hours outside my workplace, posing on his red XC Falcon to ask me on a date. So sweet…. of course these days, the rose would have been sent as a gift on Facebook! And the date. Picking me up from my parents house, receiving the third degree from my father about the precious cargo he was about to transport in that hot red Ford then opening the car door for me (from the inside if memory serves, because



with Shelly the handle was broken). Oh, the memories… Of course, there is something to be said about dating in this millennium too. I am quite fond of txt dating, where you can be social from the comfort of your own home or, in my case, the

comfort of a quiet bar, with a glass of wine. I find that this way, if I am enjoying the conversation, I can invite them to join me in person and, if I’m unsure, I can safely end the date without the awkward departure. These days we have so many protection devices at our disposal that the vulnerability of the last century is a distant memory. I think mobile phones have revo-


lutionised the dating game and added the vital element of safety. If we think about what life was like before these amazing pocket survival devices became our closest friend, its surprising just how trusting we were in the company of a new acquaintance on a Saturday night. I mean, if you found yourself on a blind date where you wish you were, in fact, blind, you were stuck there, secretly willing one of your friends to magically turn up so you had an escape and a ride home. These days, an inadvertent text message under the table can see the arrival of your savior in record time and completely coincidental! Hooray! I actually have an agreement with a girlfriend that, in the instance of a bad date, a sent blank text means I will receive a phone call telling me a member of my family has taken ill and help is required. That way I can politely explain the situation and leave, knowing that if my date decides to contact me again, it will only be via text message so he doesn’t feel quite so vulnerable. Then, in the safety of that same quiet bar, with another glass of wine, I can decide whether to answer him or not. And so the process continues…. I must admit, I am becoming quite a fan of this new dating revolution! Can’t quite grasp the whole Internet dating thing though… anyway, that’s another story. – Shelly Jones

VCE is Our Passion...

Feeling the ANZAC spirit SUNRAYSIA’S Year 9 and 10 students are being encouraged to enter the 2009 Spirit of ANZAC Prize schools competition. It is the first time the competition has been expanded to include students in Year 9 and Year 10; with the expectation that this will increase the number and quality of entries. This change allows students who entered in Year 9 in 2008, but were not selected, to submit fresh entries in Year 10. “This is an excellent opportunity for students in those year levels to explore the ANZAC spirit and

to relate it to their lives, with the chance of being rewarded with an amazing prize,” Member for Mildura, Peter Crisp, said. “This year, 10 students representing each of the education regions in Victoria will be chosen to participate in a two-week study tour to sites of historical significance in France, Belgium and Thailand. “Students will need to explore ways in which the Spirit of ANZAC is relevant to today’s young Victorians and can present their material in one of several ways including writing an essay, producing an audio

or video presentation, a graphic or a CD-ROM presentation. Previous entries have examined the way in which the ANZAC spirit is exhibited through local communities in times of hardship such as drought and bushfires. All competition entries will be assessed by regional panels before 27 State finalists are interviewed by a central panel in late January 2010. Entry forms are available to download online from www.veterans.vic. or by emailing 76 Madden Avenue Mildura 5022 0477


Mildura Weekly - 24/7/09

Garden of solace •  From Page 15 A place of quiet reflection for those who had lost loved ones during the Great War, Julius Grossman’s garden would have given great solace to local families, suffering terrible loss and grief in the years after hostilities ceased. The first of Mildura’s memorials to our war dead, it was hoped the garden would “stand as a permanent memorial” to those three boys to which it honoured. This would certainly have been the wish of Julius Grossman and many of the local people. And it did for many years until the fence was dismantled to make way for a new one. Both Julius Grossman and his beloved garden have long since left us, although it stands to reason that a few of his well-cared for plants may still stand amongst the many gardens that make up the area around 12th Street and Langtree Parade. Photographs of these three men are nowhere to be found, so if anyone can shed light onto the whereabouts of their photographs, or indeed have photographs of any of our ex-service personnel, it would be greatly appreciated. The “Seggie-Hart-Evans” plaque however, is now held in trust by the Mildura RSL until it can be permanently placed on public view. But the memory of the garden, the man who tendered it so carefully and dutifully, and the boys it stood to memorialise, will remain forever as part of Mildura’s history. The words of James Matthew, which rung out across the crowd that day, still hold great significance today, when he said; “The men who were honoured were lying on the battlefields of Europe with duty well done. We did well to remember their names.”

$25m sporting plan •  From Page 3 “Most of the indoor sporting user groups in our group can’t actually expand at the moment because there’s just not enough court space,” Mr Freckleton said. “It’s really affecting the participation within our sport. “Most of the sports can’t conduct any training sessions at all because there’s physically not enough stadiums. “This plan is going to allow us to run a main competition at this sort of venue, but it’s also going to allow those one-court stadiums to become training venues so we can actually run our sports properly.” While much of the public debate over sporting facilities in Sunraysia over the past decade has centred around the Mildura Recreation Reserve and arrangements between the two football clubs and the harness racing club, indoor sports probably represent a larger pool of players in Sunraysia, making this week’s announcement of significantly more indoor facilities a major breakthrough. “Our sporting group represents 6000 indoor sporting users in this town today,” Mr Freckleton said. “Council, with this plan, has actually involved us right from the start and we’ve pulled it apart and put it back together numerous times to come up with the correct solution for indoor sporting groups.” Mr Freckleton said the concept

•  Paul Freckleton plans revealed this week will ultimately provide a significant cash injection for the district in terms of major events. He estimates major State and national titles could generate up to $10million a year for the disPUBLIC NOTICES trict. Mr Freckleton said he has already been approached by the Australian Volleyball Association to host international events in Sunraysia if the South Mildura facility goes ahead as planned. While the South Mildura sporting complex and upgrades to the Mildura Recreation Reserve are the big ticket items, many other facilities across the district will receive attention as part of the plan. A one-off $200,000 facility im-

Funding the massive $25million project remains one of the big obstacles and will come from a variety of sources - rate payers, governments and key stake-holder sporting groups. All of which is yet to be determined. The draft plans for the proposed Mildura South Sporting Precinct are available on the Mildura Council’s website at and at the Council’s Madden and Deakin Avenue Customer Service Centres. For more information about the plans call Kate Andronescu on 5018 8314.

provement grant for the Mildura Basketball Association is planned to ensure the Association’s existing Eighth Street facility, which houses four courts, is improved and properly maintained. Another $200,000 is earmarked for either upgrading or expanding the existing gymnastics facility at Red Cliffs, with the possibility of combining ballet with gymnastics. Work is already under way on two indoor courts at Chaffey Secondary College which will further add to the district’s sporting venues. The Mildura Council’s manager for Leisure and Lifestyle Services, Ray Lyons, has been one of the key personnel in developing the plans and said this week it was imperative to ensure existing facilities were maintained. “We need to be mindful that we didn’t want to build a facility that then made existing facilities, such as the Irymple Leisure Centre, St Joseph’s Stadium, Mildura Basketball Stadium and Nichols Point Stadium under-utilised,” Mr Lyons said. Council’s manager for Community and Culture, Martin Hawson, stressed this week the Council had not made a decision on the plans. “Council has not made a decision yet. They have considered and seen the plans, but now it is time to ask the community for their thoughts,” Mr Hawson said.

Meals on Wheels •  From Page 13 “Most of our established volunteers have been with us for anywhere between 20 to 40 years, and while it’s an amazing achievement and one we hope they can continue to add to, some are simply becoming too old to keep doing the job. “It’s an area we’ll be looking to address in the coming months, desperately trying to encourage other community members to get on board with Meals on Wheels.” More information on the AGM, or on how to become involved with the organisation is available by contacting Barbie Cornell on 5021 3090.

Mildura Weekly - 24/7/09

Cricket speedster Brett Lee, writing for the Mildura Weekly during the current UK Ashes tour with the Aussie side, is philosophical about being one down in the series, but says…

It’s time to re-group… IT’S been a tough few days for those of us in the Aussie touring squad who didn’t play in the Lords Test. The hardest part of not being able to play is that you feel a little helpless. It’s hard to watch your teammates when things aren’t going so well, whereas it’s actually quite fun to be in the rooms when the team is on top and destined for a win.

I am also starting to get a bit of cabin fever, so I have been taking every opportunity to get out of the rooms, even for little things like taking a walk or doing some extra rehab to help with my injury. All the same, I never stray too far because it is important for the whole squad to be together as much as possible over duration of the match. My rib injury is feeling better all the time, although I am not yet sure what the immediate future holds. Of course, I would love to be a part of the threeday game this week at Northampton, and put myself forward for selection for the Third Test, but we will just have to wait and see. I know my body pretty well, and this particular injury is not new to me, so I will know when the time is right. With the scorecard now showing 1-0 to England, it is important for all of us to get out on the paddock. I think you will see some big efforts this week at Northampton, which should flow through to the Third Test at Edgbaston. I must also congratulate Michael Clarke for his magnificent hundred in the second innings. Most of us in the Aussie squad think it was the best century we have

There is certainly no lack of effort from our guys, and I think all of us associated with the squad were proud of the way the team nearly snatched victory after copping some flak over the first three days of the match. It was pretty tense in the dressing room during the five days of the Test, as you would expect when there is so much at stake. It doesn’t get much bigger than an Ashes Test at Lords, and this game had so many twists and turns that we didn’t get a chance to relax much at all.

seen so far in this series, and there have been a few. In the context of the match and the quality of the English bowling at the time he went into bat, ‘Pup’ will probably agree that this was one of his best Test innings. It was an enormous achievement for us to get within 100-odd runs, and I think there are good signs for the team leading into the Third Test. There is certainly no lack of effort from our guys,

and I think all of us associated with the squad were proud of the way the team nearly snatched victory after copping some flak over the first three days of the match. I can tell all Mildura Weekly readers that we have already moved on from the Lords Test, and are now starting our preparations with a view to equalling the series at Edgbaston. I just hope I can be out on the ground playing my part – Brett Lee

Crunch time for top four ahead of finals maintain its first quarter pressure, finishing on the end of an 86 point drubbing. The same can be said of the Roos, who had a chance to beat South Mildura last week but struggled to get the job done. Merbein coach Paul Makepeace will have strong

words to pass on to his young team; win this or drop out of the finals race. On the other hand Wentworth coach Mick Dean will be similarly looking to pump up his side ahead of the clash, with the Roos a chance to replace Merbein in the top four with a win. Wentworth will miss ruckman Angus Crowley, who will line up for the Under 18s, with the youngster enjoying a fantastic year. The Magpies should take advantage of his absence, with the likes of Josh Whitelaw, Jia Sloan and Luke Scambler roaming the ground. The Magpies won easily by 45 points the last time these two sides met, with the added incentive of playing finals sure to be a telling factor in how these two teams will run out.

Netballers aiming for Murray Bridge triumph MILDURA’S Academy netballers will travel to Murray Bridge this weekend with hopes of securing a win at the Murray Bridge Netball Association Tournament. The girls will come up against South Australia’s finest during the event, with the Under 13 and Under 15 divisions to be represented. Four teams consisting of 40 players will make the trip, with Mildura’s teams performing well recently in Bendigo and Swan Hill. Mildura Netball Association President Karen Martin said the top-age Under 13 and 15 sides had a good chance of walking away with victory, while the outing would prove a good learning curve for bottomaged players.

“They’ll gain some valuable experience coming up against a variety of new teams,” she said. “Coming from Mildura our girls tend to play the same sides each year, so it will certainly be a good experience. “It will also be an opportunity to see some of the talent that will make its way to Mildura in September when it’s the Academy’s turn to host a tournament.” Players have spent the past six months training with a number of specialist coaches in preparation for the event, with David McCullum, a highly regarded Victorian coach and current assistant at the Northern Zone Academy, the most recent to make the trip.

Local players Georgia Oliver, Renee Phillips, Ashely Flentjar, Rebekah Adair, Ebony McClean and Laura Robertson were lucky enough to receive some one-on-one time with McCullum, with all six girls to attend a Netball Victoria Northern Zone Academy selection day on August 9. Karen said McCullum provided the girls with an insight into what selectors would be looking for, and how to mentally prepare for upcoming events or training camps. “David talked about getting in the right frame of mind regardless of whether it’s for a big tournament or a selection camp like the one the girls will attend next month,” she said.

Local netballers were also lucky enough to get an audience with Australian coach Norma Plummer, with the veteran conducting a talk in the region in May. Karen said the talk was an “inspirational one”, with the ‘Diamonds’ coach using her life experiences to motivate players. “She focused on grasping opportunities that may come along, which is especially important for country kids who don’t often get the chance to play in elite teams,” she said. “It certainly gave our girls a belief that they can reach their goals, and hopefully Norma’s advice will continue to encourage the players to do their best this weekend.”

‘Black and White’ ball for Merbein THE Merbein Football Netball Club will host a ‘Black and White Ball’ tomorrow night at the Kenny Park Function Rooms from 8pm. Supper, prizes and drinks at bar prices will be on offer, with tickets still available for $30 for doubles, $15 for singles, or $140 for a table of 10. Dress is semi-formal, with more information available by contacting Vicki on 0438 252 344.

‘Hassa’ luncheon A LEGEND of the Merbein Football Netball Club will make his return on Saturday, August 15, with the ‘Hassa Mann’ luncheon to be held at the Kenny Park function rooms from 12pm. The event is expected to be the perfect start to the town’s centenary celebrations, with the Merbein favourite to conduct a talk and watch the Magpies’ final game for 2009. Tickets are limited and will cost $20, with a three course meal, drinks at bar prices and the chance to win a football signed by Hassa included. More information is available by contacting Vicki on 0438 252 344, or email

There have been some gifted players go through local footy ranks and on to bigger and better things. Not to mention a few of the ‘journeymen’ of footy who came to play with local sides. Helping track one down, we asked - whatever happened to…

Elkin Reilly, a touch of SFL ‘black magic’ IF local football administrators ever decide on their SFL Aboriginal ‘Team of the Century’ or Hall of Fame nominees, Elkin Reilly will no doubt be right near the top of the list. Probably not so much for what he achieved during his brief foray into the Sunraysia league, but for what he achieved in a proud sporting, cultural and professional life as an ambassador for his people. The ‘old-timers’ of the SFL would remember Elkin Reilly well…they will be happy to know he’s alive and well, living in South Australia and still heavily involved in health and culture issues for his people, especially the youth.

Sunraysia residents and visitors will be able to get a better perspective on the life and times of the great man by visiting Merbein during its August Centenary celebrations, and having a close look at some of the dossiers prepared by amateur Mildura historian Raylee Schultz. Raylee has taken a close look at many of the former champions who played a part in the sporting development of this region, and they are documents well worth reading, backed up by photographs that should bring many memories flooding back. The Elkin Reilly story, although not having a direct connection with Merbein, is one of them. Elkin Reilly was born in 1938 to parents Ruby and Harvey on Lake Nash Station on the NT/Qld border. He was just six months old when he and his brothers and cousins were taken under police escort to the Telegraph House, known as ‘the halfway house for stolen children.’ The baby ended up in Alice Springs, where Doctor Pat Reilly talked police into leaving the boy in the care of his family. They called him Julian Elkin Reilly, but everyone referred to him as Elkin. The family transferred to Ho-

petoun, where Elkin spent his early education before another move, this time to Minlaton on the Yorke Peninsular of SA where his foster dad set up a medical practice. Elkin went to the boarding school Rostrevor in 1951, was appointed House Captain, and was encouraged in both academic and sporting worlds. He became the South Australian junior high jump champion in 1957, clearing the bar at 6ft 2ins, played top grade cricket with some success, and later became only the second Aboriginal student from Rostrevor to play in the VFL. After National Service training, Elkin returned to Minlaton, winning the league best and fairest medal. He repeated the win the following year, this time while with the Barmera Football Club. By his own admission he became a footy ‘nomad,’ playing for clubs in leagues in SA and Victoria, and working at whatever jobs they could find him. In 1961 he was invited to play for South Melbourne on a six-game permit, and played those games in the Reserves. After the permit expired, Elkin received an offer from Wentworth Football Club in the Sunraysia league, and played a full season for the Roos, winning the club best and fairest. In 1962, at 191cms and 91kgs, he was recalled to South Melbourne, and spent the next five years as a ruckman against some of the best players in VFL – including the legendary Polly Farmer and John Nicholls. One of his coaches was the great Bobby Skilton. He played 51

games for South, kicking two goals. While in Melbourne he married Marlene, and they had two children. Elkin worked for the International Harvester Company. In 1966 his appendix ruptured and he found it hard to get back the fitness required for VFL level, so he moved to Cohuna where he was captain-coach for two years. In 1969 he moved to Kingston in SA as coach – and gave a youngster by the name of Michael Taylor his start in senior footy. Retiring from football the following year, Elkin moved to Adelaide and worked for Harris Scarfe for several years before taking on a job with the Aboriginal Health Commission, where he stayed for 17 years. He retains strong links with the Steering Committee for The Stolen Generation and Aboriginal Health Council. He maintains a strong affiliation – and affection – for Rostrevor, and in a recent college magazine told the story of running “stone motherless last” in a cross-country championship, and one of the Christian Brother tutors commenting; “You had better change your brand of smokes Reilly…the ones you’re smoking aren’t doing you any good.” He is currently the figurehead of a charity that bears his name, the Elkin Reilly Appeal, and which raises money to bring Aboriginal children to be educated at Rostrevor, and has been honoured by Rostrevor ‘Old Collegians.’ Elkin, 71, lives in Port Adelaide.

Mildura Weekly - 24/7/09

Unleashing the beast • NO LIMITS: South Australian Greg Gartner on his way skyward in his Extreme 2WD. (below) Shannon Rentsch goes into this weekend’s round level on points with series leader Dave Fellows, who is pictured on the back page during the recent Finke Desert Race, which he won for the third time.

THIS weekend’s PWR Sunraysia 500 at Tapio Station is expected to produce some of the closest racing of the six-round Australian Off Road Championship. Much attention will be on the top-tier Pro Class buggies of championship leaders Shannon Rentsch and David Fellows who go into this weekend locked on points. Rentsch is the reigning national champion while Fellows took out the recent Finke Desert Race, his third win at the event. Both will be hoping to leave Mildura on Sunday with the points lead. “We are level with Fellows in the championship so we are back to the start where points are concerned,” Rentsch said. “We had a good start to the season in Western Australia and with the car pulling up well after Finke, we are looking forward to a top result at Mildura.” Fellows meanwhile goes into this weekend’s event with a relatively new car. His recent Finke Desert Race win was just the second race in his new pro buggy, a good sign going into the PWR 500. Fellows has been racing off road for 17 years, 13 in a thundering Pro Class buggy. During that time he’s seen the sport evolve tremendously, both in terms of the competitiveness of drivers, and the technology and performance of the cars. He said this increased competi-

tiveness, evident this year by his equal first place in the championship with Rentsch, means drivers often have to drive all-out rather conserve themselves and look at the overall championship. “It does depend on where you are in the championship, but this year it’s so close with other competitors knocking on the door you’ve got to be careful, but competitive at the same time,” Fellows said. The Toyota driver said he was looking forward to the longer laps of the PWR Sunraysia 500. “The race format is the same for everyone, but the longer laps allow you to get into the groove and settle down,” he said. “The track shouldn’t chop up as bad and there shouldn’t be as much bull dust.” Fellows and Rentsch are certainly no strangers to close-quarters racing. At last year’s Sunraysia 500 the pair was less than four seconds apart after 500 kilometres of all-out racing, and a similar battle is expected this weekend. They’ll be joined by a host of top-class competitors who’ll be keen to take points off the championship leaders, including Glen Owen, Danny Brown, Buddy Crowe and Hayden Bentley. A new format this year will add another element to the mix. There’ll be a one-lap race tomorrow afternoon from one o’clock, after the morning’s prologue. Drivers will then form up again at 9am Sunday for the first of three

laps of the 113 kilometre Tapio Station course, with a half-hour break between each lap. While the Pro Class buggies will certainly grab their fair share of attention there will be plenty on offer for spectators with ultra-competitive fields in all classes, many of whom recently did battle at the Finke Desert Race. Victorian driver Justin Watt and Alice Spring’s Wayne Sanderson will be among the front runners in the 3.5 litre Pro-Lite buggy category, while

Werner Zetti is expected to be among the drivers to beat in the Super 1650 class and is the class leader. The Extreme 2WD class is always a popular one with spectators. The adrenalin-charged combination of thundering V8 motors, long travel suspension and large chassis makes for a stunning spectacle off road. The Performance 2WD class is expected to be equally as spectacular and features Sunraysia’s Tim Watson in his heavily modified white Holden utility and the consistently

quick Matt Ryan. Both are capable of taking more than a few scalps this weekend. The PWR Sunraysia 500 officially kicks off tonight with the ‘show and shine’ at Number Three Oval from 5pm - 9pm. It will provide a chance for the public to inspect competitors’ awesome machines and meet the drivers who pilot them. The first of the on-track action gets underway tomorrow with the allimportant prologue from 9.30am.
