By BEN PISCIONERI STORM water from floods in southern Queensland and more recent storms in Victoria are having an increasingly positive impact on the Victorian water situation. Goulburn Murray Water this week increased the Murray’s seasonal water allocation to 78 percent of high reliability water shares – a direct response to heavy rains in central Victoria earlier this month. “The storms and associated rainfall across central Victoria between March 5 - 8 has influenced the allocations,” Goulburn Murray Water’s resource manager Graeme Hannan said this week. “The rain suppressed irrigation demand across much of the Goulburn Murray Water area, and together with relatively small improvements in storage volume, provided

also making their way down. “The increase in the Murray seasonal alloca-

tion has come partially from higher flows in the Ovens and Goulburn rivers after the recent

storms, and also from an improvement in Victoria’s water availability in Lake Victoria arising from flows from the Darling River caused by the heavy rains in the northern Murray Darling Basin early in the New Year,” Mr Hannan said. “The current flooding in southern Queensland is likely to significantly increase the volume of water stored in the Menindee Lakes and hence further benefit Victorian Murray resources at the next allocation assessment.” There are now predictions the Menindee Lakes will overflow in the next month, the first time this will have happened in almost a decade. As covered in the Mildura Weekly last week, Victoria will start benefiting from the Menindee Lakes once storage levels reach 640GL, which is now all but guaranteed.

Bit of talk, plenty of action PUTTING Mildura on show to some of the biggest players in the conference and business events industry has paid dividends, with bookings already received from international and interstate. Advance bookings include a conference for 500 delegates, another for 150 people, along with several smaller visits that could see

upwards of $500,000 injected into the local economy. It follows council’s recent participation in the Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo in Melbourne, and a visit to Mildura by 10 professionals who organise conferences, corporate meetings, exhibitions and other business events.

They included a New Zealand travel journalist who has indicated that this region will be featured in a series of articles in business and travel magazines. According to council’s tourism spokesperson Cr Mark Eckel, the visitors were impressed by what they saw. Cr Eckel, PICTURED, said 2010 was the first year that council had been a part of AIME, and the results showed it had already been worthwhile.

He said it enhanced Mildura’s profile as a conference and business events destination, and the rewards down the track could be huge. “This industry has grown dramatically in recent years,” he said. “We’ve gone from $750,000 to $2.3 million in the space of a few years, and the benefit to the region could be as high as $5 million by the end of the current financial year.”

What do you do when a sick friend, in desperate need of medical help can’t get it, and leaving them alone is just not an option? Curlwaa’s Jan Thomas, a friend indeed, recently found out the hard way that she had...

A friend in need By GRANT MAYNARD and BEN PISCIONERI

NO-ONE likes to see a good friend in pain. And true friends will always do their utmost to help. Curlwaa’s Jan Thomas is such a friend. The disability care worker recently strode boldly into new territory when she took into her home a friend in the grip of a deep depression – inclined to self-harm and verging on suicidal. She really had no choice. There just weren’t facilities available in Sunraysia at the time to help her friend, and she wasn’t about to leave her to her own devices. For six weeks Jan waited for a bed to become available so her friend could get the treatment she desperately needed.

Ms Murphy said local mental health service providers were very much aware of the problem. She said State Government funding was urgently needed to introduce ‘step up/step down’ services in Sunraysia.

•  HELPFUL: Murray Mallee Community Mental Health Services manager Cath Murphy.

Actively lobbying

No help When it became clear there would be no help forthcoming, Jan had to shoulder the burden of care herself. It was an imposition on her young family, but she felt there was nothing else she could do. Now, seven weeks later, the friend is in Melbourne, at last receiving the care and attention she needs, and that has freed Jan up to start lobbying for change. “No-one should have to feel so helpless,” she said. “And no one needing professional help should have to wait so long!” Rest assured there will be a few people in high places receiving letters from Jan in the near future. And, at a more grassroots level, she has initiated a Facebook site that in less than two weeks has attracted more than 350 ‘friends’. Most of them are like Jan, disillusioned with a mental health care system that they claim is failing the very people it is meant to assist. The site has been dubbed ‘Mental Health Awareness –

System Not Working’. And, Jan says, many of the site’s friends are people from Sunraysia who have had similar experiences when trying to get help for a loved one. Not that hard to believe when you consider Mildura’s psychiatric admissions are more than double those of Melbourne and the rest of regional Victoria (per head of population), according to Professor Tony Vinson’s landmark Social Indicators Report (2008). Murray Mallee Community Mental Health Services manager, Cath Murphy, said a major contributor to Mildura’s high rate of psychiatric admissions was a lack of so-called ‘step up/step down’ services. “As per the Social Indicators Report, it reflects we are (over represented), but it’s about the overall representation of admissions and re-admissions, and this is because we don’t have other alternatives,” Ms Murphy said this week.

“Someone may look like they’re falling into crisis, and they may look like they need attention from clinical services, but may not necessarily be suicidal, but their issues are such that they need some additional care. “They would ‘step up’ into a residential facility, and that might actually prevent an admission to clinical services/ hospital.

Care options “Similarly, if someone is in clinical services and they’re assessed and might actually be able to go home, a recovery model (step down) may actually facilitate someone going from clinical into the community. So they would go into prevention recovery for a period of time, which would allow that additional support to be in place for that person and their family.” Ms Murphy said at present Mildura has no such service, meaning some people who might otherwise have

Lost, alone and in need of help This is an excerpt from a Facebook posting by Jan’s sick friend. It details how she feels about the lack of support she has received from the mental health system in Sunraysia, and in general. It makes chilling reading, and the anguish is palpable: “I know the system sucks… I am continuing the battle. If it helps others going through the same – here is a small piece about how I feel about ‘them’. “Whether I am helped before the depression overcomes me I don’t know – but either way I hope this helps others going through the same, and those facing mental health issues in the future… “I was done with the sweetly abiding ridiculous

charade, secretly hiding behind a fictitious facade. So I cry for help, you say you are there. But my emptiness, my lifelessness – it’s not enough for you to care?

“I make the cuts. I see the burns. But much worse My mind, My spirit, My soul are bleeding. I tell Myself “Just a little longer”. “You swing your decisions, your words, your

promises. And in turn you force me to do the same – swinging back and forth, emotion to emotion, never once stopping, nor slowing the motion. “You give me NO reason, NO answer, NO justification So I continue to pass through time as time passes me. Merely a nothing... nothing... merely left to be. And I tell myself: “Just a little longer”. “To you I am sightless and soundless, unseen and unheard, mindless and boundless, obscure and absurd. “Your so-called empathy lying ungraced, unemployed as I live my life dying, unembraced, a void. A simple void is what I’ve become – a hollow sphere on a pendulum. And I tell myself: “Just a little longer.”

been treated by a ‘step up/ step down’ service are going straight into clinical care, significantly raising admissions in the district. Mildura’s clinical mental health facility, which is where the Vinson Report’s figures are taken from, is a 12-bed unit based at the Mildura Base Hospital.

“We’ve certainly been very active ourselves, so has the hospital and Peter Crisp, in lobbying the State Government and putting our case forward and I guess it’s just a matter of time,” she said. Meanwhile, as part of her lobbying for a better deal for the mentally ill, Jan is proposing to establish a GROW* group in Mildura. GROW is a metro Melbourne-based community of persons working towards mental health through mutual help and a 12-step program of recovery. Small groups of people who have experienced depression, anxiety or other mental or emotional distress, meet together weekly to help each other deal with the challenges of life. “What we need to get started is a group of at least 12 people with a mental illness, or a group of 12 carers, or a combination of both, to start the ball rolling,” she said.

“If we can get enough people together, GROW has promised to get a Sunraysia group established and support it.” Interested people can get in contact with Jan via email at janmarie1970@hotmail. com. Meanwhile, Jan, who acknowledges her next to no experience in the mental health field, and zero formal training is about to change that too! She will travel to Swan Hill in the near future to improve her knowledge of the mental health system. That, she hopes, will assist her in her lobbying activities. She has one staunch supporter in Member for Mildura, Peter Crisp, who last week turned the spotlight on Sunraysia’s mental health treatment option shortcomings in State Parliament. Jan said the MP and his staff had extended invaluable help when she was seeking “the right people to write to”. * GROW can be found at www.grow.net.au or GROW Victoria – 707 Glenhuntly Rd Caufield South Victoria 3162, telephone 03 9528 2977 or email: Vic@grow.net.au.

ANZAC Day alcohol ban gets thumbs up

•  PREPARED: Mildura RSL president Allan Wilson said preparations are almost complete for this year’s ANZAC Day.

MILDURA’S RSL president Allan Wilson has welcomed changes to Victorian liquor licence laws prohibiting licensed venues from selling alcohol on ANZAC Day morning. The changes are designed to stop late night revellers leaving nightclubs in the early hours of the morning interfering with ANZAC Day dawn services and other early morning activities. Mr Wilson said while Sunraysia had fortunately not experienced the same problems as other areas, any move to prevent interference with ANZAC Day activities was a positive. “I guess we’ve been lucky so far, and haven’t had any trouble,” he said.

“But if something like this is going to prevent any trouble on the streets, particularly on this day of the year, then by all means we support it,” he said this week. The Liquor Control Reform Amendment Act 2010 prohibits licensed venues selling alcohol from 3am to 12pm on Anzac Day, which falls on Sunday this year. Victorian Consumer Affairs Minister Tony Robinson said the new law was aimed at protecting the dignity of ANZAC Day. “The Brumby Government is taking action to protect the gravity of ANZAC Day by introducing a new law restricting alcohol sales to stop commemorative events being disturbed by drunken par-

National blitz on farmers, workers SUNRAYSIA fruit and vegetable growers will be targeted as part of a national crackdown on the horticulture industry. The Fair Work Ombudsman announced this week it will randomly scrutinise 1000 employers, including some in the Mildura and Swan Hill regions. The move has the support of another Federal agency, the Department of Immigration, which recently began a crackdown on illegal farm workers. It also follows revelations last year by the Mildura Weekly that the Fair Work Ombudsman was investigating a number of labour hire contractors in the Sunraysia region. The Fair Work Ombudsman earlier this week announced details of its national education and awareness campaign for the horticulture sector. The campaign aims to educate employers about the new National Employment Standards and the Horticultural Award, 2010. It will be conducted in partnership with the Australian Workers’ Union, National Farmers’ Federation, Horticulture Australia Council and the Australian Industry Group. Fair Work Ombudsman Group Manager of Field Operations, Bill Loizides, announced the campaign at the Western Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s 2010 IR Conference. He said that together with the partners, the Fair Work Ombudsman had developed a special ‘Guide to the Horticulture Award 2010’ to assist employers understand their obligations. “The guide contains an overview of the award and wage rates, and answers common employment-related compliance questions,” he said. Mr Loizides says the guide is one part of a suite

Following a mailout to 15,000 employers in the horticulture sector highlighting the availability of the guide and other materials, the Fair Work Ombudsman will randomly select up to 1000 employers nationally for audit in May and June. of resources for horticulture employers to assist them understand and comply with the new Award and the NES. The resources include a self-audit checklist, fact sheets and a CD-Rom with a wide selection of information for employers. Seminars and educational visits will be held in some regions. Details of times, dates and venues can be found at

www.fairwork.gov.au/horticulture. Mr Loizides said his department was very serious about its job of building knowledge and fairer workplaces, and was strongly focussed on ensuring the community understands its workplace rights and obligations. Following a mail-out to 15,000 employers in the horticulture sector highlighting the availability of the guide and other materials, the Fair Work Ombudsman will randomly select up to 1000 employers nationally for audit in May and June. In most cases, the Horticultural Award 2010 will be phased in through transitional arrangements set out by Fair Work Australia. Hard copies of the guide are available by calling the Fair Work Infoline 13 13 94. Employers or employees seeking further information can also contact the Australian Workers Union – www. awu.net.au; Australian Industry Group – www.aigroup. com.au; Horticulture Australia Council – www.hac.org.au; or the National Farmers Federation – www.nff.org.au.

tygoers,” Mr Robinson said. The law won’t apply to RSL gunfire salute breakfasts and other commemorative events, which have been exempt. Restaurants and cafes with liquor licences will be able to open on ANZAC morning, but will not be allowed to sell alcohol until after noon. With just over a month before this year’s ANZAC Day, Mr Wilson said he was expecting yet another big turn-out by Sunraysia residents. “We usually have a good crowd turn up and it’s actually been getting bigger and bigger each year,” he said. “The dawn service over the past few years has been up. Last year I think it

was up around the 1500 to 2000 mark and for the main service, we’ve been getting up to 3500 people.” Mr Wilson said the majority of participants in the morning march were now World War Two Diggers, Korean and Vietnam War veterans and the new breed of Diggers returned from current and recent conflicts. He said it was encouraging to see young people supporting ANZAC Day. “The number of World War Two Diggers is getting smaller and smaller, but we’re finding we’re getting quite a lot of young people who are coming out and getting into it now, which is great,” Mr Wilson said.

Invitation to join lakes tour THE Buronga-based Lower Murray Darling Catchment Management Authority is encouraging New South Wales LMD catchment area landholders to join a study tour of South Australia’s Lower Lakes. The tour will be a follow-up to the group’s successful tour of the upper Darling catchment area last year, with the trip to give participants a chance to explore the “other end of the river system.” “While the floodwaters from southwest Queensland have been terrific for the Darling, the opportunity to see how these recent events have affected the lower part of the system could be a worthwhile opportunity,” LMD CMA chairman Mark King said. “I’m encouraging as many of our NSW LMD catchment landholders as possible to take part in this experience. “With funding for further study tours

set to be limited, this opportunity may be the last for those interested.” The tour is expected to cost participants around $300, which will include travel by coach to Victor Harbor. The tour is expected to run for four days, and although the itinerary is yet to be finalised it may include visits to Loxton, the Eastern Fleurieu School at Milang to see how students have been aiding the long-necked Murray fresh-water turtle, the Lower Lakes and surrounding areas, with stops also planned for Waikerie and Banrock Station on the return trip. All expressions of interest must be submitted to the LMD CMA by close of business next Wednesday, March 31, with more information, or to download a registration form, available by visiting www. lmd.cma.nsw.gov.au, or by contacting Susan Walla on 5021 9459.

It’s been with us for well over a century, built in uncertain times to fill a need for

A church, a chapel, By JUSTIN NICHOLAS BUILT in difficult and uncertain times, the charming building that is Mildura’s first Catholic church has shared an evolving history and remarkable journey with the Mildura community for the past 114 years. Constructed with wood sourced from the Chaffey’s original riverfront sawmill, the church was erected near the corner of Pine Avenue and Tenth Street in 1896, at a cost of 300 pounds. The wooden construction was only intended to be a temporary church, as uncertainty surrounded the long-term viability of Mildura and its dried fruit industry. The small catholic community sought donations, organised bazaars and conducted a series of fund-raising events to raise money for the church’s construction. Contributions were received by the whole community, not just Catholics, evidence of the young community’s tenacity and the binding nature of their shared hardships. As well as hosting weekly congregations and other religious services, the church was employed by the Sisters of Mercy as a school from 1906 to 1914. Mildura’s burgeoning Catholic community built a permanent church in 1920 in 11th Street, and the old church was no longer required, prompting Bishop Foley of Ballarat to donate it to the Sisters of Mercy. It was subsequently relocated to the grounds of St Joseph’s College in 1922. The Sisters of Mercy operated a boarding school at St Joseph’s until the 1970s, with the old church being used by boarders as a music hall and dinning room for many years. Catholic schools began receiving government funding for building works in the 1970s, and the old church was situated on ground earmarked by St Joseph’s for a new administration building. Jim Richmond, a retired builder whose family have had a long association with St Joseph’s, explained that the old church was almost lost forever. “The school council decided that it was no longer functional, and it was to be demolished,” Jim said. “John Howden (principal) and Mary Flinn (headmistress) wanted to save the building, but it had to go to make way for the new administration building.

INSET– The original church with its attendant convent, circa 1910. “But they said if we can move it, they can save it.” Using two tractors, a houseboat float and several lengths of railway line, the church was relocated within St Joseph’s school grounds by Jim and four other men in 1979. “We spent three weeks preparing for the move,” Jim said. “Nobody thought it could be done.” • Continued next page

RIGHT– Monsignor McKenzie, the man whose vision of almost 40 years ago paved the way for the chapel’s charming surrounds today. FAR LEFT – Another of Leopoldine’s masterful wooden etchings that grace the walls of the chapel. • From previous page He is extremely proud of his involvement in saving the old church, mostly because it means so much to so many people. “After the move all of the old nuns came over and thanked us,” he said. “They were thrilled that the old church had been saved.” Jim went on to teach woodwork in the building, and many former St Joseph’s students will remember that the building was used for typing and art classes also. In the late 1980s, art students at St Joseph’s designed and produced eight stained glass windows that symbolise the spirit and history of Sunraysia. These windows were installed in the walls of the old church, and to this day provide an artistic tribute to the region. The old church was again relocated in 2005, this time to a parcel of land at St Paul’s Primary School, af-

fectionately known as ‘Mac’s Patch.’ Monsignor McKenzie was the parish priest at Sacred Heart Mildura in the 1970s, and his vision was for St Paul’s to one day have its own chapel located within school grounds. Land was set aside for this purpose in 1974, and Monsignor McKenzie set about planting and watering the dozens of trees which today surround the modest chapel.

enzie, Mimovich created a mosaic of Mother Mary for the school’s opening in 1974, one of the stained glass windows is based on this mosaic. The other window features St Paul, and was based on a drawing that Mimovich did for the school when the chapel was opened in 2006. The chapel also acts as an open time-capsule, expanding through each stage of its living heritage. The students of St Paul’s contributed to this heritage last year with the Chapel Pipes project. The project involved students of all ages painting columns, which are located in the garden outside the chapel. Students followed the theme ‘Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow’ in visually telling the story of St Paul’s Primary School. The historic chapel will offer the St Paul’s community a quiet place for reflection, liturgies and student education for many years to come.

Mildura Weekly - 19/3/10

There’s not much this bloke doesn’t know about the hospitality industry. He’s been in the game for half a century, boasts a long list of ‘firsts,’ has many achievements and multiple awards to his name, and now wants to take Mildura tourism to a new level...

Casino ‘King’ on way here By ALAN ERSKINE AT the age of 23, John Haddad was the youngest hotel licensee in Victoria, starting an action-packed career in the hospitality industry at the former Kings Hotel in Russell Street, Melbourne. He rose to become chairman of one of the biggest hotel groups in Australia, chairman of the Australian Tourist Commission, and a member of the World Tourism Council. His contribution to Victorian, Australian and world tourism and hospitality has been recognised with several life memberships and eight prestigious awards. John, who has had a long association with Mildura, remembered one award with great fondness when he spoke to the Mildura Weekly on Tuesday. It was in the 80’s, and John’s name was called out at the Tasmanian of the Year

24 Pack

awards night. “I thought they wanted me to present the award,” he said. “But they presented it to me. I told them I wasn’t a Tasmanian, but they insisted. It was an honour that I treasure to this day.” What he didn’t say was that the award was in recognition for his contribution to Tasmanian tourism, centred on his management of Australia’s first casino at Wrest Point, Hobart.

More than 30 years down the track, he hasn’t lost the passion or drive for the accommodation and hospitality industry. He also hasn’t forgotten his early years with the Federal Group, managing the former Hotel Wintersun in 8th Street, or the many friends he made here in those early years. He has followed Mildura’s growth, says it has enormous potential, and that’s the reason he has selected Mildura as his preferred option to build Victoria’s second casino. John realises it is a sensitive issue in some quarters, but says it is a similar scenario to Wrest Point. At first there was some opposition, but when the dust had settled, Wrest Point ‘made’ Hobart, and put Tasmania on the national and world tourism map, with subsequent benefits over the years measured in the multi-billions.

John is coming to Mildura on Friday, March 26, to clear the air over the Mildura casino issue. He’ll stand up in the car park opposite the Grand Hotel at 11am, give an overview of what a casino would mean to the city, and answer questions from interested or concerned people or groups. He knows all the arguments centred on gambling, liquor outlets and so on, but says a world-class accommodation, gaming and hospitality venue would have far-reaching and long-term benefits for the city. And this is one bloke who is well qualified to look into the future. John Haddad’s contribution to the tourism and hospitality industry is probably unparalleled in Australian, if not world, history.

He learnt the food and beverage, operations, sales and administration business with the Federal Group of Hotels, ran the famous Menzies Hotel in Melbourne, rose to chair the Federal Group, became State and National president of the Australian Hotels Association, chairman of the Australian Tourist Commission, and helped start the Melbourne Tourism Authority. He has been a member of the International Hotel Association, World Travel and Tourism Council, and served on the executive of the Australia-Japan Business Co-operation Committee and Council of Adult Education. He has also served with the Catering Institute of Victoria, Institute of Management, and the William Angliss School of catering.

He is linked to 27 business and management groups, foundations, Government and medical institutions, education and policy advisory councils, and has been recognised at the highest level of Government and industry for his contribution to Australian tourism. Among these are outstanding State and national achievement awards, excellence in tourism, an Advance Australia ambassadorship, hotel industry life memberships, and he has twice been recognised with Queen’s Birthday honors. Victoria, he says, will get a second casino. He is passionate in his belief that Mildura is the right choice. “I looked all around the State, and Mildura came out on top,” he said.

Dareton garage sale to raise $$ for cancer EVERYTHING from children’s toys to steel lockers will be on offer in Coomealla tomorrow, part of a special garage sale being conducted by a group of Year 11 and 12 students. The sale is being held as a last minute effort to raise money for this year’s Australian Cancer Council Relay for Life cancer research and services fund-raiser, with the group of 20 students – who call themselves the ‘Happy Honkers’ – encouraging locals to support the cause. “We’ve had a lot of items donated by local residents and businesses, and we have just about anything a person could want up for sale,” team member Indiana Kiely said. “So far everyone has been really supportive, and now it’s just a matter of trying to sell as much as possible this weekend.” Indiana said the group had been visiting local busi-

nesses in Wentworth, Dareton and Mildura in an effort to locate items, with a number of individual residents also getting on board. It’s a concept that’s seen old computer keyboards, toys, books, a large flower crate and even two canoes donated, with the group spending the latter part of this week ensuring each item is ready for sale. “It’s gotten so big we’ve had to move the garage sale from our original venue to the high School (on the Silver City Highway at Dareton),” Indiana said. The students’ motivation comes from close-tohome experience – it was three years ago that one of the school’s science teachers, Hedley Pardo, lost his battle with cancer. The ‘Happy Honkers’ were formed in his memory. “Some members of the team also have relatives who

have had cancer, so it’s something that each of us has a connection with,” she said. The Happy Honkers Garage Sale will run from 8am tomorrow, with a barbecue and raffle to also be held. Raffle prizes will include vouchers from various Mildura and Wentworth businesses, with locals still being encouraged to donate any unwanted items to the sale. “People can bring stuff with them on the day if they want, or make a cash donation,” Indiana said. “We’re grateful for any support we receive, and are looking forward to having some fun trying to sell everything.” More information, or to make a donation, is available by contacting Indiana on 5027 2118, or Sophie O’Shannessy on 5027 3325, with information about Mildura’s Relay for Life event available by visiting www. relayforlife.org.au.

Ambassador for the Murray River and the The lady is a legend. She’s swum the English Channel twice, conquered the length of the Murray River, holds six marathon swimming world records, has represented Australia 14 times, and taken on Loch Ness – ALAN ERSKINE meets…

An Aussie Mermaid SHE’S the girl next door – personable, lively, unpretentious, fun and interesting to talk to…and she just happens to be one of the best marathon swimmers in the world. Tammy van Wisse has conquered some of the toughest long distance swims on Planet Earth – so far knocking up a staggering 65,000 kilometres in the water – and she says she’s far from finished. The 41-year-old dubbed ‘The Aussie Mermaid’ was the special guest of the Rotary Club of Mildura Deakin at the World’s Longest Lunch fund-raiser in Mildura last Friday, during which she launched the club’s PS Ruby ‘Voyage of Discovery’ youth leadership program (see story Page 13). The Tammy van Wisse swim journey started 30 years ago, when the then 11-year-old was introduced to the swimming pool near her home in Melbourne. She was a natural, and in her early teens started picking up Victorian swim championships, along with several Royal Lifesaving titles. Tammy won the Lorne Pier to Pub swim three times, and then took on her first real marathon challenge – the 20km open water event from Beaumaris to Frankston. In 1996 she became the first person to swim the treacherous Bass Strait, a brutal 97-kilometre swim that took her just under 18 hours. It set a world record that so far hasn’t been beaten, and is just one of six world records held by Tammy. They include a Loch Ness crossing (the water was a freezing six degrees), NZ’s Cook Strait, the English Channel and the Olympic Games Centenary Swim in Greece. Then came her biggest challenge – in 2001, Tammy

•  GOING WITH THE FLOW: Marathon swim champion Tammy van Wisse cuts a lonely figure as she powers through another day on her way to conquering the 2400-kilometre length of the Murray River 10 years ago. BELOW – Tammy catches up with another legend, celebrity cook Stefano de Pieri, on her arrival in Mildura. swam the length of the Murray River, from Corryong in The Alps High Country to the Murray Mouth at Goolwaa, a 2438km epic that took her 106 days. Tammy said arriving in Mildura on New Year’s Eve, 2001, was one of the highlights of the marathon swim. “It was hot…very hot, but we had a welcome as warm as the weather,” she said. “Stefano de Pieri was there to greet me as I swam, and the hospitality was just amazing. Mildura was so

vibrant. It stands out in my mind because my support crew was so happy to welcome in the New Year in such a great place.” Tammy said that by the Mildura leg, she was physically very tired, and the heat had taken its toll. “I made the decision to have an early night so I was fresh for the swim through the Lock and down to Apex Park,” she said. “The plan there was to do my lifesaving re-qualification. As I went through Lock 11, I was just so surprised at how many people had come out to see me again – the support from Mildura was incredible.” The Murray Swim had special importance for Tammy. As a human water quality tester, Tammy has long been a supporter of cleaner waterways. During that swim, she campaigned about environmental issues confronting the river such as poor environmental flows, salinity and toxic algal blooms. •  Continued Page 15

A unique and innovative ‘Voyage of Discovery’ youth leadership program based on similar principles to the world-famous “Young Endeavour’ sailing ship has been officially launched in Mildura. A partnership between Rotary, Federal and State Government, local business houses, schools and a Sunraysia-based life skills training academy, the program will use the recently-restored Wentworthbased Paddlesteamer Ruby as a working base. The aim of the program, to be run to coincide with school holiday periods, is to educate Years 11 and 12 students about the environment, history and cultural awareness, preserving the river and its environs while equipping them with basic life skills. The program was launched in Mildura last Friday by river ambassador and world champion marathon swimmer Tammy van Wisse, on behalf of the Rotary Club of Mildura Deakin. Tanmy told a crowd of more than 200 people that her epic Murray River swim 10 years ago had inspired her to highlight environmental issues, helped build her character, and she was sure the ‘Voyage of Discovery’ project would do the same for many young people in the future. Rotary’s plan is to attract

support from local business in a youth mentoring and support role, with help from all levels of Government, tourism, business, schools and community service and support groups.

• HAPPY TO BE HERE: Tammy van Wisse says she doesn’t need much of an excuse to return to Mildura…she loves the place, and the people. She is pictured with Mildura friends Marita and Stan Sleep after launching the ‘Voyage of Discovery’ program in Mildura. The first five-day ‘Voyage of Discovery’ is scheduled for the September school holidays, and will involve 20 students, six Ruby crew members under the control of Captain Leon Wagner, two educators and two Rotarians. The plan is to leave the Port

embracing teamwork, leadership, ecology, environmental issues and ways to combat them, and personal development. A Rotary spokesperson said the programs would be widely advertised, and open to all Years 11 and 12 students from district second-

ary schools and colleges on both sides of the river. It might also be extended to include students in other states. A DVD promotional package is in the pipeline. Each student, family or individual business sponsor would be required to come up with a quarter of the estimated total cost of $2000 per student. This will cover boat costs, meals and facilitator expenses for the five days. Rotary is hoping the program is embraced by councils, government departments and private enterprise, along with river watch groups, financial institutions, maritime services and the various authorities responsible for the rivers and their future welfare. Rotarian and youth life skills academy facilitator Stan Sleep said yesterday it was hoped that business houses in particular would support the twice-yearly programs. “This could be in their best interests, as these are the future leaders of business and industry,” he said. “The student would be seen as the business representative during the program. “This could include a company presentation, logo shirts and media recognition. This business investment into future leadership development may also be tax deductable.”

Mildura Weekly - 19/3/10

They’re tall, majestic, unique…and worth thousands of dollars. All Intricately and lovingly shaped and crafted from pieces of stainless steel, and welded so carefully you can’t see a join. The Mildura Weekly’s ALAN ERSKINE found out all about…

The mineral sand man and his works of art WHEN Bemax mine worker Lindsay Butcher found he had a bit of spare time on his hands three years ago, he sat down and worked out an idea for a stainless steel sculpture. It was an experimental first for the affable 32-year-old, who moved to Mildura from Broken Hill seven years ago. As a qualified boiler-maker and mechanical fitter, he was used to working with steel, but this was the first time he had attempted any work in an abstract form. Lindsay put his thoughts down on drawing paper, hit the backyard shed every spare minute he had, and within a few weeks had a gleaming sculpture, a work that sold quickly, and which was the forerunner of a few dozen more as part of a hobby business over the last few years. Lindsay has already sold a dozen or so to businesses and private individuals in the Mildura area, had some featured (and sold) in an Adelaide exhibition, and next weekend has his latest sculpture ‘Obsessive Priority’ entered in the sculpture fabrications section of the prestigious Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, to be held from March 24-28. First prize is a mere $1000 – less than the cost of materials for an average Butcher sculpture, but Lindsay doesn’t care too much about the monetary reward…he would just love to have his artistic talent recognised, per-

haps leading to some more orders for his work. Broken-Hill born and raised, Lindsay left school to start an apprenticeship as a boiler maker, and has travelled widely in the past 10 years, doing mine work at Roxby Downs, Adelaide, Wemen, Cobar and Whyalla. His current job is with Bemax wines near Pooncarie. In his days off, Lindsay hones his sculpture-making skills in the wellequipped backyard shed of his San Mateo Avenue home. His ‘Obsessive Priority’ work took him about 80 hours to complete, using more than $1500 worth of stainless steel, all of which he bent, contoured, joined, filed and polished himself. The 2.4 metre high work, weighing in at 60kgs, has been valued at $6700. Lindsay is not leaving anything to chance. He will take it to Melbourne this weekend in the back of his ute, placing it in the care of garden show organisers until it goes on display in the Carlton Gardens. Lindsay has been told he will have some stiff competition in his section. Organisers are expecting more than 90 individual works, some of them from highly-respected sculptors from around the country, and overseas. The Melbourne show is the biggest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, and usually attracts in excess of 100,000 visitors.

• WORK OF ART: Lindsay Butcher (INSET) is hoping that his works of intricate and lovingly crafted stainless steel sculptures (MAIN PICTURES) will be recognised at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. That’s last year’s winning entry (LEFT).

THERE’S a common belief amongst today’s society that young people don’t necessarily appreciate the value of a dollar. It’s for this reason that the Commonwealth Bank Foundation has been on a threeyear mission to help students become better money managers, with the group recently bringing its ‘StartSmart’ initiative to Mildura. The program is labelled as Australia’s leading financial literacy program for primary and secondary school students, with the StartSmart team visiting both St Joseph’s and Chaffey Secondary College yesterday as part of their

biennial road tour. Established in 2007, the program engages students through interactive workshops, and has so far reached more than 120,000 students across the country, while also receiving an Australian Business Award for community contribution. It enables participants to choose from four modules, all presented in a one hour session, with the first, ‘SmartEarning,’ focused on the processes involved with any first job. It explains the ins and outs of being a taxpayer, the differences between casual and part-time work (and the

terms and conditions associated with both), and the concept of superannuation. The second model, ‘SmartSaving,’ introduces the basics of choosing appropriate tools for a savings plan, and ways of developing effective saving strategies using budgets. The third model, ‘SmartSpending,’ is aimed at helping students become smart and engaged consumers, while maintaining control over their personal finances, while the final model, ‘SmartInvesting,’ focuses on making investments work for the individual, exploring concepts like real estate, interest accounts, etc.

Niki’s ‘clip around the ears’ nets $2300 A NUMBER of locals have been busy doing their part for this year’s ‘World’s Greatest Shave’ event, with individuals and businesses rounding up donations in an effort to see friends, family members, and colleagues undergo radical haircuts. Nikita Allan, 16, was one, with the Mildura Senior College student losing her lengthy locks last Sunday in front of a packed Sandbar crowd. Seated in front of family members, friends, and a fair number of bar patrons, Niki managed to work up the courage to go through with the shave, with good friend Jack Mills firstly cutting her hair into a

crop-cut style, before professional hairdresser, and family friend, Vanessa Garlick finished the job with the clippers. It was a new style that helped Niki raise $2300 for the Leukemia Foundation, with her mum Sue saying the event had been eight months in the planning. “It was a monster effort,” she said. “Niki has been collecting donations for about eight months, and has been looking forward to this for quite a while.” Sue said that $1700 had been raised on the day alone, thanks largely to the sale of 500 raffle tickets.

While the majority of the crowd had arrived expecting to see Niki get a trim, what they didn’t expect was a surprise last minute entry. Inspired by Niki’s efforts, and his aunty’s requests, one spectator, a 14-year-old high school student, decided to put a challenge to the crowd. Putting his reasonably wellgroomed afro against the crowd’s generosity, the youngster offered to shave his locks if $200 could be raised in five minutes. The crowd quickly responded, with more than $400 raised in the allotted time.

Sue said that both Niki and herself had been overwhelmed with the support shown by locals and businesses. “Niki has been very passionate about this cause, and it was fantastic to see such a large number of people support her on the day,” she said. Those interested in donating to the ‘World’s Greatest Shave’ can still do so by visiting www.worldsgreatestshave.com. •  Niki’s good friend Jack Mills has some fun trimming his friend’s long locks.

Her goal to enlist support for reversing the massive environmental problems facing the Murray continues today. Recently named as Australia’s first Salinity and Water Quality Ambassador by Environment Australia, she continues to spread the word via her ongoing roles as an official Save the Murray Ambassador and spokesperson for National Water Week. In marathon swimming, Tammy credits much of her success to another swimming legend, Olympic swimming champion Dawn Fraser, who has overseen some of her swims and offered support and encouragement for every challenge and new goal. One of her most recent records came in July, 2006, when Tammy smashed the 81-year old record held by legendary female athlete and first woman to swim the English Channel, Gertrude Ederle.  Her new record of 5 hours, 6 minutes and 48 seconds from Battery Park, New York City to Sandy Hook, New Jersey eclipsed Ederle’s record, set in 1925, by 2 hours and 5 minutes. Tammy said one of the reasons she selected the record attempt was because Gertrude Ederle was her childhood inspiration and hero. “Although I have swum more than one and a half times around the world, those 22 miles were some of the most meaningful,” said. “Meeting the Ederle family and getting to know them helped me to swim with the spirit of Gertrude. She was a pioneer for women, a barrier-breaker for all athletes and a timeless inspiration.” When not swimming marathons, Tammy spends much of her time inspiring other Australians to achieve their goals as a motivational speaker. Two years ago she took a brief spell from swimming following the birth of her first baby Rebecca…but during her pregnancy she estimated she clocked up around 500 kilometres. Just for the record; The total distance Tammy has swum so far is 65,000kms (1.5 times round the world). She has represented Australia in over 18 international marathons, holds six World Records, won 16 Victorian Royal

Mildura Weekly - 19/3/10

‘Surprise’ award for teenage sports star By VINNIE RODI BRAD Mason, 17, is well on his way to becoming arguably Sunraysia’s greatest volleyball export. And while that’s a big statement for someone only just starting his career, it’s one that Brad’s list of achievements easily backs up. It’s that same list that’s also seen Brad named the Tankard Dental and Mildura Weekly Young Achiever of the Month for February, with the award recognising local youths achieving outstanding results in either sport, education, work, community engagements or charity work. Brad will receive $200, a plaque and certificate from Tankard Dental in acknowledgment of his efforts, with the youngster saying he was still a little surprised by the attention. “I had no idea Dad (Jim Mason) had even nominated me,” he said. “I was just sitting at the computer playing around on Facebook when he came in and said ‘congratulations.’ “I didn’t have a clue what he was congratulating me for, so it was a nice surprise.” Brad has gone from strength to strength since taking up volleyball four years ago, and in that time has gone on to hopefully pave the way for others taking up the sport. Selected as a raw recruit in the Sunraysia Academy of Sports Dunning Classic Homes Volleyball program in 2005, Brad quickly demonstrated a knack for the sport, something local coaches Paul Freckleton and Allan Hassell were quick to pick up on. “I was actually set on playing tennis at the time,” Brad said. “It was only after Freck (Paul Freckleton) kept pushing me to try out that I eventually decided to give it a go. “I’ve been hooked ever since.” After two years of playing and developing locally through the SAS and Sunraysia Volleyball Association, Brad received an invitation to join the National Training Camp squad, one he eagerly accepted. At 14, he received an opportunity to train with the State’s best young volleyballers, and a year later was selected in his first Victorian side, the Under 17 Gold squad. That same year (2008) Brad was named in the National Youth Squad following the group’s annual training camp, with the youngster impressing selectors with his athleticism. After a year working alongside the country’s best, Brad finally received the call up every young volleyballer dreams of, named an Australian representative in the 2009 Australian Men’s Youth side. It’s a selection that saw him participate in the Asian Youth Tournament in Bangkok, Thailand, and excelling at the top end of the scale despite battling illness. “It was my first trip overseas, so it took time adjusting to the condi-

tions, food, etc.,” he said. “I don’t think I’ve ever been that sick in my entire life. “It was a learning experience that I’ll never forget, and one that’s encouraged me to keep working hard, because I’d love another chance to

represent my country.” Only four years into the sport, Brad found himself leading Victoria, named co-captain of the Under 17 Victorian Gold team last year. That responsibility, mixed with his desire to continually improve,

saw him achieve his best form to date, named the Most Valuable Player for Victoria at the national tournament. It was that same form that once again saw him get the opportunity to represent his country, after again impressing at a number of national camps and trials. Regular readers of the Mildura Weekly will remember our report on Brad and fellow volleyballer Cara Meyer’s bid to become Australian representatives, with Brad receiving confirmation only this week that he had cemented his spot. He will travel to Thailand and Iran later this year to compete in the Asian Youth Volleyball Championship, and says he is looking forward to the challenge. “I’m really excited now, and can’t wait to get over there and give it my best,” he said. “I know now what to expect in terms of conditions and the competition, and hopefully that will help me do better this time around.” In addition to his various indoor volleyball achievements, Brad also recently made history by becoming one of the first Sunraysia volleyballers to compete at a State Beach Volleyball competition, lining up alongside fellow local Daniel Slorach. And while the pair didn’t achieve their desired results, it was still a previously unparalleled achievement,

and one that could potentially open the door for others to show an interest in the sport. And while Brad will continue to pursue beach volleyball through his commitments with both the Australian Volleyball Federation’s national junior program, and the Australian Institute of Sport’s men’s development program, he said his aims were firmly set on the indoor arena. “I enjoy beach volleyball, but I prefer the indoor stuff more,” he said. “It’s where I started, and where I want to try and make a career.” Brad is also the third ranked Australian volleyballer in his age group, an achievement that saw him narrowly miss out on a scholarship to the Australian Institute of Sport earlier this year. It’s a scholarship that, based on current form. Brad will again contest next year, and if successful will more than likely move to Canberra, home of AIS headquarters. “That’s my ultimate goal for this year, to earn that scholarship,” he said. “It would just open up a number of doors for me to really make a career out of volleyball. “I just have to keep working hard, and hope that everything falls into place from here.” Brad will begin his Asian tour at the end of April, with the trip set to last a month. Applications for the March Young Achiever award are also now open, and can be mailed to the Mildura Weekly at 73 Orange Avenue, Mildura, or via email; stuart. mensch@milduraweekly.com.au. The award is open to anyone aged 18 or under, with more information available by contacting 5021 1777.

Mildura couple Grant and Dianne Brown enjoyed their 2009 middle-eastern experience so much that Dianne has accepted another posting this year – teaching in the United Arab Emirates. We have been detailing some of their adventures, and will keep readers up to date with exciting experiences from the past, and new experiences in the future. Take cleanliness, for example…this is Grant’s story

Sparks fly in Abu Dhabi THE man in the nondescript overalls walked inconspicuously round the large central fountain and surrounding garden beds of the Marina Mall Shopping Centre in Abu Dhabi, his eyes darting this way and that. In his firm grip was a plain black plastic bag with a black handle protruding from it. Following close on his heels was a member of the Mall Cleaning staff, resplendent in immaculate blue overalls with reflective bands. He carried a long handle dustpan and broom, and was trying to look as unobtrusive as his mate. Suddenly they stopped. Spotting their quarry, they moved stealthily forward as one, at the same time removing from the bag what looked like a small tennis racket. With a deft flick of the wrist, a spark hissed with a crack, and another fly fell to the ground, stunned. The assistant was onto it in a flash, sweeping the carcass into the opened dustpan before snapping the lid shut. Where else, other than the UAE, could you pay a man a daily wage to catch flies? Equipped with an electric fly swatter/zapper, the kind shown on the ‘Illegal Items’ list of the Australian Customs brochure as you fly into Australia, but can be readily bought here for about $4, (batteries not included) - he had a career for life. With 300 shops, numerous fountains and indoor gardens everywhere, this crack team of assassins had the job in front of them. For those Mildura Weekly readers who have been following our adventures, we are now ‘City Slickers,’ having just moved out of our Palace on the Dune down at Liwa Oasis, to the smart end of town in the City of Abu Dhabi on the actual Island. When I say smart end of town, I mean it will be when they finish building it. The place is like a huge building site, with new tower blocks and villas being built all around our beautiful four and a half star hotel called the One to One. It is very new, in fact to the point they are still finishing off some aspects, with probably more workmen and staff than guests at the moment. Still it is summer, the time when most people choose to leave the city, as that is when the temperatures run in the mid forties, and the humidity can be anywhere between 25–90 percent, so it is no place for the faint hearted! We have also upgraded from a Toyota Yaris, our car of many variations (and 24,500kms)… since March we had four of them… all quickly succumbing to their next service as we

• FLY-FREE: They look just like a tennis racquet…but switch them on and they can become an insect’s worst nightmare. Mildura’s Grant and Dianne Brown (TOP) say they always watch with interest as workers use the zappers for insect control in the plazas near their home (ABOVE).

clocked up the kilometres on daily long distance trips from our remote oasis. We were upgraded to a Ford Explorer, a big black 4WD with a four litre V6 engine and a fuel tank to match. It made a nice change to be able to pass all the trucks and see over the wheels for a better view, also the panorama above the guard rail along the highways was a lot better. Unfortunately our big black beast only lasted two weeks before succumbing to the heat and cooking itself. So it was back to National rent a Car. This time we have the same, but white, with a lot less kilometres on the clock. They are the deluxe models with cruise control and electric selection of 4WD (in both low and high range) and they cruise quite nicely on the road, though are still no match for the flying Range Rover Sports, BMW X5s, Porsche Cayennes and the ever present V8 Landcruiser VXR that leave us standing still.

It can be dangerous Though their days may be numbered, as the government deals with the latest road accident statistics released by the United Nations, that show the UAE, out of 178 countries studied, is the fifth most dangerous place to drive, and even worse if you are out walking. The local newspaper has started a road safety campaign promoting ideas to combat road trauma. With so many

drivers from so many different countries, their battle will be a long one. Among the driver nationalities we have Jordanian, Pakistanis, Indians, Bangladeshis, Iranians, Egyptians, Sri Lankans …and, of course all the western expats… not to mention the locals, the Emiratis (local Arabs), who own the roads! Therein lies the problem… this country has an amazing road system, with first class design, but it’s a pity the driving skills don’t match. They have speed cameras over here too, set as high as 160kph, although many of the speed limits are now being reduced, and they are experimenting with moveable cameras, replacing the ones that were as big as phone boxes! Another hazard to avoid at this time of year is the errant date picker. The government has stated that all the dates growing along the roadsides are free, but the ones you have to look out for are the trees in the centre plantations. The sight of pedestrians hopping over Armco barriers next to the fast lane that carries previouslymentioned vehicles at speeds in excess of 160kph is enough to make your eyes water. Our trip back south has been an eye opener too, with the number of big 4WDs loaded to the hilt with all manner of belongings, and cruising along at 160kph. These are a lot of Saudi, Jordanian and Egyptians who choose the drive option over flying, as they can take home more stuff. A lot of them wax their car prior to the trip to save the duco from the sand blasting a vehicle gets out here in the empty deserts. This is a process where they coat all forward facing surfaces with what looks like car polish (it dries

flat) but they don’t take it off till the journey is over. It looks bizarre when you first see it, but makes sense as you see the sand swirling around the roads most days. To see what I am talking about click the link to http://picasaweb.google.com/browngdv/ CarShots. Summer has really affect-

ed the building industry. With temperatures in the high forties (in the shade), the Government has enforced a break for all outdoor workers, who must rest between midday and 3pm daily. Firms who flout the laws are fined heavily, and each day the papers have photos of workers sleeping in the middle of the day in all sorts of unusual places, in pipes, on tyres, flattened card board boxes high up in unfinished multi-story buildings, or on lawns and nature strips under the ever-present date palms. We got lost on the outskirts of Dubai recently… well not really lost, just geographically misplaced temporarily and we were amazed at some of the sights. There was a huge new camel race track with several grandstands, one at the end of the five-kilometre track, the other at the end of the eightkilometre track (both under lights with paved roadways either side of the track so the owners and trainers can follow in their 4WDs)!

Big, bold and brash Another one was a theme park called Global Village, which must have had a 500acre bitumenised car park out amongst the dunes. Nothing on a small scale here, it is all big and bold and brash, and the scale of some of these developments leaves one with mouth agape. We went to the

Dubai Mall to eat in a restaurant at the foot of the tallest building in the world… 160 stories high.

Crane home A story we heard was that there is a crane driver who ‘lives’ in his cabin, because it’s simply too far for him to come down each day. When you see the size of it you could understand why. They also have a massive fountain at the foot of the skyscraper, and it certainly was impressive as the waters danced to the musical accompaniment on a great sound system. We managed to catch three sessions (all different, half an hour apart) as we dined on the terrace in the shadow of Bur Dubai. You can check out our photos on http://picasaweb.google.com/ browngdv/BurDubai. Also, we finally visited the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, truly amazing what $4billion will buy you these days. It has taken over five years to build, and is certainly impressive from and architectural point of view. It holds three world records… the largest single piece of carpet in the world, the largest chandelier in the world, and the largest dome. You be the judge.

Scouts roll out the barrel for rafting fun UNSEASONAL but welcome rain over the Labour Day long weekend didn’t deter Sunraysia Scouts as they participated in their annual district raft regatta. It was a sight to be seen; multiple rafts bursting with Scouts floating down the river, ‘chased’ by a mass of threatening rain-filled black clouds. District Scouts had been preparing for this camp for six weeks, so the thought of rain wasn’t about to put them off. While a couple of the rafts had been used in previous regattas, the majority of the rafts were hand-made in the weeks leading up to the long weekend. Using the skills learnt in Scouting, the rafts were made using things such as pontoons, logs and barrels. In prior years, Scouts paddle from Watts Bend to Buxton’s Bend, Nangiloc, but due to the weather, a change of location was necessary. This year saw about 50 Scouts raft-

ing 12 kilometres from Curlwaa to the boat ramp behind the Wentworth Hospital. There is more to this weekend than just paddling down the river. On Saturday night, Scouts were entertained by a bush movie screening of School of Rock. Sunday brought a new day and some much appreciated sunshine. When previously camping at Buxton’s Bend, Scouts made use of the sandbar, and had sand sculpture and Iron Man competitions. Due to the lack of a sandbar at this year’s camping ground near Lock 10 at Wentworth, some modifications had to be made. The sand sculpture competition became a bush sculpture competition, with a music theme; Red Cliffs Scouts won this with their clever design. Tug-a-war was run on the road, and 5th Mildura was victorious in this. The best ‘Scout-built’ raft was won by 2nd Mildura Scouts, with their imaginative raft using a car’s roof rack. It was the Iron Man competition that had the biggest change to it. When held at Nangiloc, the competition

consists of paddling on your raft across the river, running up a hill and around a tree, before paddling back for another run. This year, the Iron Man involved a short run to a mud puddle, which the Scouts then had to crawl through. They then had to swim from the boat ramp to some halfsubmerged tables in the water about 200 metres downstream. Scouts had to jump over a fallen log before completing the final run to the finish line. This year’s Iron

Man was won by Irymple Scouts. Despite the rain, wind and cold weather, the Scouts had a ball, and proved once

again that Scouts are always prepared, and always up for a challenge. Scouting is looking for interested young people, and

Botanic gardens on star post hunt MEMBERS of the Australian Inland Botanic Gardens are again seeking help from local residents, with the group eager to complete a revamp of the ground’s signage system. It’s an initiative that’s so far taken six months to complete, and once finished will help visitors easily find their way around the grounds, while learning more about the wide variety of flora on display. Stage one of the project involved the collection of unused ‘dip-tins,’ with gardens coordinator Brian Cuddy saying the group were now on the lookout for unwanted star posts. “Originally the plan was to design the signs using only dip-tins, but we soon realised that we needed something to help support the signs,” he said. “That’s when we decided to use star posts, which while able to provide plenty of support will also continue the ‘blockie’ theme of the design.” Brian said that based on support pre-

viously demonstrated by locals, which led to more than 600 dip-tins being donated, he was confident the gardens would acquire the desired number of posts. “I was amazed with the amount of diptins we received,” he said. “We had one lady who on her own donated 200, and I’m sure that theme will continue.” Brian said that 150 star posts were needed to complete the design. “Ideally they need to be at least 1.5 metres tall, and relatively straight,” he said. “Basically we’re going to use three dip-tins per sign, with the picket to be inserted through the middle for support. “It should look quite special once completed, and will enable us to point people in the right direction, and provide more information about our garden beds and plant species.” Anyone wishing to donate star posts (or pickets as they are sometimes referred to) can do so by contacting Brian on 5023 3612 or 0408 604 879.

Our country has more than its fair share of weird and wonderful fauna and flora. The platypus springs to mind as an example of our exotic fauna, and for a plant to illustrate our flora it’s hard to go past Brachychiton rupestris or, as it is more commonly known, the Queensland Bottle Tree.

You little bottler! By GRANT MAYNARD THE Queensland Bottle Tree has to have one of the most visually interesting shapes in the tree kingdom. Often the subject of comment by interested passersby, it has been noted that many people also have trouble passing without reaching out to give the friendly tree’s distinctive ‘fat tum’ a pat or rub. Also sometimes referred to as the narrow leaf bottle tree, there are several outstanding examples in Mildura and, it is pleasing to note, that at least two of these that could have easily been lost when the sites on which they were originally planted many years ago were redeveloped, are still with us. The first example of this sits proudly in what was once a residential front yard, but now home to Centabrace Employment at 136 Lime Avenue. There is also another notable example in the rear courtyard cum beer garden of Mildura’s Sandbar, although it is showing the ravages of those who feel compelled to carve their initials, name or other inscriptions in its hardy bark. There is a brace of them at Mildura’s Native Nursery towards Apex Park, with two healthy examples planted in close proximity, and yet another example sits proudly in the front yard of a private Langtree Parade address. This tree is believed to be more than 60 years old. And there is also another fine example tucked away in the front yard of the St Vincent

de Paul flats in Le Amon Street. Brachychiton (pronounced bracky-ky-ton) is a genus containing more than 30 species commonly found growing in the tropical and subtropical parts of Australia and besides the bottle tree includes Brachychiton populneus – the Kurrajong family, Brachychiton acerifolius (Flame Tree), Brachychiton discolor (Lacebark), and Brachychiton gregorii (Desert Kurrajong). Brachychiton rupestris’ common name derives from the tree’s shape, which becomes bottle-like as it ages, usually taken on its interesting proportions between five and eight years of age. Large specimens can have a trunk diameter measured in the metres and this is certainly true of the Lime Avenue example. Some believe the tree is hollow, but the swelling can be attributed to water held in the

trunk. The tree is semi-deciduous and can reach 18 to 20 metres in height, but is usually smaller if grown in cooler climes. The leaves are about a hundred millimetres long and these drop from the tree before flowering. The bell-shaped cream to yellowish flowers usually form between October and December in clusters at the end of the branches. The tree is hardy in most areas once established, but of course it appreciates some water during hot, dry periods. Young trees are slow growing and can make attractive, and unusual, pot plants for some years. The tree becomes an important fodder tree for stock during dry periods in regional and outback Australia, while the Aborigines ate the young roots and seeds, either raw or roasted. The bottle tree doesn't get attacked by many pests, but damage to the trunk makes the tree susceptible to infection, so Mildura Native Plant Nursery's Tony Langdon recommends you don't damage the bark with the mower or the brushcutter, and that you don’t pile mulch against the trunk. "Actually that applies to all trees," he said. "Bottle trees grow best in well drained, slightly acidic soil, in full sunshine but they can also withstand temperatures from minus eight degrees up to 50 degrees Celsius. "If you're looking for a feature tree in your garden that's guaranteed to be a talking point, you can't go past the Queensland bottle tree."

PRIVATE SALE

Bedroom demand The REIV does more than just compare suburbs with suburbs. The Institute also looks at what type of home is in the highest demand, as it helps buyers and sellers see the full picture of the market. For instance, in the south east, two-bedroom homes were in much higher demand than three- and four-bedroom homes, whereas in the outer east, three-bedroom homes were in highest demand. In the December quarter of 2009, affordably priced two- and three-bedroom homes in the eastern suburbs were in the highest demand of all houses in the city. In the space of a year the median price for a three-bedroom house in the outer east has jumped from just under $400,000 to over half a million. The south east, including suburbs such as Bentleigh, Cheltenham, Frankston, Narre Warren and Springvale, saw demand increase the median price for a two-bedroom home by around $150,000 in 12 months.

This confirmed that the needs of our growing population and those of first home buyers were the significant factors driving demand last year. It’s an interesting shift in the market to see the strongest demand in the unit and apartment market for larger, three-bedroom, units and apartments in the inner city and western suburbs.

3 Rainbow Street, Merbein (Close to Primary School )

• Large Block 1467 sq.m. • Quiet Area • Comfortable 3 BR – 2 with BIR • Evap. Aircon • Comb. Heating • Ceiling Fans • B.B.Q area • Fernery • 40 x 25ft Tradesmans Shed with power & concrete floor • 2 Garden sheds Space for Boat, Trailer or Caravan

This also explains some of the wider changes in the residential market; in the past, units and apartments were considered smaller dwellings with one or two bedrooms – however, as the REIV figures indicate, there is growing demand for larger apartments. This trend is likely to continue as more units and apartments are required to meet the housing needs of our population.

JG King Homes initiates offer to install Solar Electric panels on new homes for FREE JG King Homes has become the first Australian builder to give homebuyers a helping hand when it comes to their electricity bill. The offer, provided in partnership with Chromagen Solar Energy Solutions (accredited by the Clean Energy Council for Sustainable Energy), is available to any new homebuyer. It includes the free installation of solar panels to the roof, which will then collect and feed sunlight through an inverter that converts light into electricity. When you use electricity, you are using solar generated power or power from the grid if the solar energy is insufficient. And if you are using little or no electricity, your solar system feeds electricity back into the grid and the electric company buys that power from you. This process in effect turns your home into a mini power station, thereby reducing your electricity bill, if not even earning you some dollars should there be excess energy collected. Notably, this surplus that is sold back to the electricity company carries a feed-in tariff whereby if your household consumes less than 100 megawatt hours of electricity a year, you will be credited a minimum of sixty-cents for every unused kilowatt hour of power fed back into the grid. And in most cases, while electricity companies

are obliged to offer the sixty-cent rate, most are now offering cash payments at higher rates. Prior to JG King Homes’ offer, even with the government’s Solar Credit Program that provides a rebate, electricity-wise homeowners still had to fork out approximately $5,000 to $6,000 for the installation. These costs have proven a huge deterrent in the uptake of solar panels as reported by an analysis performed by Access Economics on behalf of the Electrical Trades Union. The JG King offer underlines the builder’s continued support to boost uptake of rooftop solar panels in their commitment to the environment. It reinforces JG King Homes as a leader in the Australian building industry where in most cases it has become the first builder to introduce new ideas and processes to the industry. Such firsts for JG King include the first to build a 5, 6 and 7-star energy rated home in Victoria, the first builder to introduce Goodbye and Goodnight™ a single ‘standby electricity’ switch to save on energy, and the first builder to offer a 50-year structural guarantee amongst others.

The Mayor lays it on the line...

We’ll fight for return of our train By BEN PISCIONERI and GRANT MAYNARD MILDURA Mayor Glenn Milne said Mildura Rural City Council won’t stop fighting until the Victorian Government fulfills its promise to return the district’s passenger rail service. And his tough stance has been welcomed by the Sunraysia Passenger Train Action group. The Mayor’s comments follow a packed public consultation meeting in Mildura on Wednesday night, which attracted more than 1200 residents. “My personal opinion is that to have a strong society and a modern society, we must have a passenger train connection to our capital city,” Cr Milne said yesterday. “Council intends to push this issue as hard as it can from this point on, particularly now as we’re running up to an election.” He said the strong turn-out by Sunraysia residents on Wednesday night was a confidence booster for Council. “I was extremely pleased to see many people turn up,” Cr Milne said. “It gives Council a lot of confidence to really push forward.” He also made it clear the drive for a passenger rail service wasn’t just a political issue. “From a Council point of view, it’s not a one party versus the other party situation,” Cr Milne said. “As a Council we believe this community requires a passenger service and we want a commitment from the Labor Government to return it, given it said it would. “If Labor should happen to lose power in the next election, we still want a commitment from the Coalition should they end up in power. “We’re not worried about who is in power. The train service needs to come back, and both parties need to give this community an assurance they’ll do it.” Cr Milne said he expected the results of the Government’s public consultation process would be made public before any decision was made.

“They (Victorian Government bureaucrats) have to collect this information and they need to give a recommendation to the Government,” he said. “We should also get a copy of that before a decision is made. “That should be a public document, particularly if we’re going to have a transparent government.” Cr Milne said there was no doubt the district needed a passenger rail service. “Our population is growing quickly, and it’s an ageing population,” he said. “It’s the elderly that use this type of service and I don’t care if it doesn’t run at a profit. “Our taxes run Govern-

ment and our taxes pay for this type of service. “We should have this service in the 21st century and, if it has to be underwritten by our taxes, so be it. It certainly is in Melbourne. “We’ve been given a promise by the Government... and an honest government doesn’t break promises. They made this promise openly and on a number of occasions and we’ve got a right to expect them to keep that promise.” Mildura Passenger Train Action Group chair, Geoffery Brown, said he was “very pleased” with the turnout for this week’s meeting, describing it as “a real show of strength.” He claimed Sunraysia was owed a train by the Victoria Government, and the SPTAG would not to rest until we get it. Echoing the comments of the Mayor, Mr Brown agreed public transport is

heavily subsidised across the State, including metro Melbourne, Mr Brown claimed. “Mildura has been missing out for the past 17 years, he said “When you look at a V/Line map, we’re the only major centre without a train connection.” With the meeting behind it, the SPTAG said the next priority was a flood of written submissions to reinforce the show of strength at this week’s consultation meeting. “We also need to begin working more closely as a team with other stakeholder organisations like tourism, development and city council,” Mr Brown said. “We need to present a strong, united front to drive the message home,” he said. Mr Brown said it would be in the best interests of all involved for the State Government to adhere to due process and keep the Sunraysia community ‘in the loop’ by articulating the findings of the consultation process, and also those of the consulting engineers who are studying the costs, in terms of infrastructure, to bring back passenger rail services. “We need to know just how much this is going to costs,” Mr Brown said, and added “This State owes Mildura, and Sunraysia, a lot.” “But in the end, all we are asking for is equable access to public transport for the 130,00 people living in the train’s potential catchment area,” he said. Meanwhile, Councillor Mark Eckel said the public and the Government shouldn’t forget the rich heritage of Mildura’s passenger rail service. Cr Eckel described the passenger rail service as a “cornerstone of our early development” and said that was an aspect should be included in any decision-making process. “The Mildura Station site has historical significance and too often this aspect is lost in the wheeling and dealing of bureaucrat economic and environmental statistics. “We should be more proactive of our heritage like the United States and Europe or we will have no history to showcase.”

Community asked to assist plan the future THE community is being asked to participate in a major project that will determine the long-term future of two of the region’s key retail and business precincts. Residents have been invited to share their views on potential design and development opportunities for specific areas in Irymple and on Fifteenth Street, Mildura as part of a community workshop on Wednesday 24 March. Mildura Rural City Council Mayor, Glenn Milne, PICTURED, said the project involved development of a Structure Plan and Urban Design Framework for the areas, as well as a review of the Mildura Retail Strategy. “Basically we are looking at two precincts, one incorporates the areas surrounding the intersection of Fifteenth Street and Deakin Avenue and the other takes in township of Irymple,” he said. “This project will develop a clear vision for two fast-growing precincts of our community and provide a framework for the future use and development of them.” “The end result will be a clear direction for invest-

ment, improvements to public spaces, building designs, and the better management of traffic and access in these areas,” he said. A key focus of the project is ensuring continual community involvement and Cr Milne encouraged residents and others interested in the future development of land in our region to attend a community workshop addressing the areas. While the Structure Plan, Retail Strategy and Urban Design Framework will focus on these specific precincts, the project will also take into consideration all retail areas within Mildura. The development of the plans will bring together

planning, urban design, landscape design, economics, transport planning and engineering specialists who will work with the community and Council to identify how local problems can be addressed and a common vision for each of the precincts can be achieved. A community information session regarding both precincts will be held at the Settlers Club, 110114 Eighth Street, Mildura, at 6pm on Wednesday 24 March 2010. “This session is a chance for people in the community to come along and share their ideas on how to best proceed with development of the Structure Plans for both these areas” People wishing to attend the community workshop are asked to RSVP by close of business on Monday, March 22, 2010 by emailing Council’s Strategic Planning branch at planning.services@mildura.vic. gov.au The community can also have their say by completing a feedback form, which is available at Council service centres, the Mildura Library, Irymple Library and in the Strategic Planning section of Council’s website www.mildura.vic.gov.au

Barbie Kjar Excerpt from Artist Statement.

> Metamorphosis by Silvana Gallace

Silvana Gallace Excerpt from artist’s statement.

“Photographic art is a true passion for me, one that is part of my psyche. The creative process allows me to grow spiritually and takes me on personal journey of self discovery. There is also a meditative aspect to the process, which enables me to connect with my feminine spirit and identity.” “This particular series of self portraits, nudes and seminudes was a time of self-discovery. The images reflect my passions, my culture, and my femininity. I aimed to create evocative, sensuous, images that not only reflected my character, but also allowed my subjects to shine from behind the façade of the masks we all wear (not literally, but psychologically).” “Inspiration for my work comes from literature, painting, photography and many other forms of art. For me they are all intrinsically interrelated. Classical and Renaissance periods of art are particularly influential for me because this art is allegorical, religious, symbolic and mythological. “My vision is creating images that reflect my journey through life as a woman and an evolving artist. I am constantly exploring my own identity and I’m not afraid to wear my heart on my sleeve for others to see. I want to continue challenging my beliefs because I believe this helps me create evocative and enigmatic images. The end results hopefully stimulate and stir emotions, as well as draw the viewer into a different world, even if it’s just for a fleeting moment.” “In future I wish to focus on commissions and create pieces that will capture the individual spirit of my subject, but at the same time reflect my distinctive photographic style and technique.“

“The works in this exhibition reflect an investigation of the human condition and journeys. The portraits are based on drawings from life of either friends or family.” “I work with a vocabulary of symbols and in this case, the tattoo, dance, Mexican Milagros, the bow and arrow, darts, shadow puppets and various animals and birds including the hare and owl are prevalent.” “The works function on several levels, one a pure concentration on spirit, secondly on a visual aesthetic which emphasises beauty and another which relates to mythology. Kathryn Lomer wrote in the catalogue for an exhibition in 2008 titled Way of the Arrow

at Australian Galleries. Barbie Kjar is a symbolic thinker, her art reflects this.” In my work there are many cultural references to the symbols employed. For example the arrow has been traced to the Japanese art of Kyudo which involves a ritualised series of steps in preparation for the drawing and release of the arrow from the bow. The Zen art of archery is about concentration, aim, breath, and strength while preparation is about a readiness of the body and mind. “In this way the symbol parallels human experience as we are continually in varying states of preparation for changes or adversity or adventure.”

WHO AM I? For 3 points

Who am I?

Born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1946, I went to Long Beach University, but dropped out to pursue an entertainment career. My major directorial effort was The Sugarland Express in 1974 with Goldie Hawn. I was named by directors as an international superstar with my 1975 film, Jaws. My greatest triumph was Schindler’s List that won me Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director, I am?

Your social life is blossoming. Relationships of all kinds are working out well, whether they are business, romantic, or otherwise. This week’s New Moon in Pisces is great for taking relationships to a new level. But mind how you go, as there could be disagreements on the weekend, bringing a prickly start to the Spring Equinox. There are options to get ahead as long as you’re willing tread carefully and not rock the boat. Overall, the week is quite productive. The focus this week on your lifestyle, health, and work zone is quite strong. Whatever you want to achieve, try to let your imagination guide you, and learn to use images in order to enable you to succeed. A New Moon on Monday is great for committing to a new diet or exercise routine or getting rid of bad habits and adopting new ones. The Sun conjuncts Uranus on Tuesday, encouraging you to think outside of the box. Your Fifth House continues to be in focus. This is your leisure and pleasure zone. It’s also associated with romance, new love affairs, and playful creativity. Jupiter will be in this area for some time, encouraging you to use your imagination and allow it to inform and guide your life. Mercury and the Sun move into Aries later in the week, putting the focus on work and health. Take it easy on Sunday and relax as much as you can! Jupiter in your home and family zone may be encouraging you to expand and move somewhere much bigger. Think about it. Mercury moves into Aries on Wednesday, followed by the Sun on Saturday. It’s time to let your creative side out to play. Be careful when Mercury squares Pluto, as you may find yourself in a conflict concerning money. Something you’ve really wanted may be available at a high price. To spend or not to spend that is the question. You seem able to simply know things rather than use logic. Names are very often to be found on the tip of your tongue rather than in your head, and the same is true of facts and information. Yet this blend of influences also has its positive side. Your intuition is obviously working well. It’s time to give your home a cleaning. Don’t allow other duties to deter you from this. It will help you feel happier and more energized

CROSSWORD

This week marks a transition as the Sun moves out of Pisces and into Aries on March 20, the Spring Equinox. You may become restless and easily bored with your usual routine. Use this time to explore new options and uncover fresh challenges. Mercury moves into your sign on Wednesday, so share your thoughts and get support for your wonderful ideas. It also trines Mars and opposes Saturn, so you may feel frustrated that someone just isn’t getting your message.

The New Moon in Pisces on Monday is one of the best New Moons of the year for you. You get inspired ideas and a desire to experiment with new approaches to old problems. Mercury moves into Aries on Wednesday, so think about your finances and get a clear idea of your goals. From Saturday you’ll get illumination and a fresh perspective on current issues. Mercury squares Pluto on Saturday, so try not to get into arguments about values with friends.

There is a lot more to you than meets the eye. You really are a treasure. Having Jupiter in your Second House is helping you to understand this. Take stock of your skills, talents, and abilities. You may want to rewrite a more positive and upbeat resume for yourself in the process. A New Moon in Pisces is excellent for making a major purchase, applying for a loan or other credit, or starting a new budget or spending plan.

IT DOES not look like a Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) model from behind, but pretty much everything about the new ClubSport GXP and Maloo GXP tick the boxes for what should be expected from an Australian muscle car.

How so? Well, the Pontiac GXP was set up as a super sporty car for the US where cars are configured nice and soft to cope with poor roads with expansion joints and potholes.

So the GXP, which was sold for a short time in the US before Pontiac itself was killed, had a suspension setting that was a compromise between soft and sharp.

It turns out that this set-up, developed by Holden for the US, works a treat on Australian roads, many of which are also bumpy and rutted.

If you do not mind the fact that most car fans could instantly pick the relatively poor member of the HSV family in the traffic, the GXP versions could be more enjoyable than a ClubSport R8 or Maloo R8 ute.

GXP suspension still allows for spirited driving. The body is well controlled when pushed, and the benefit of a more comfortable ride is likely to please not only the driver but passengers as well. The engine lurking beneath the bonnet is another trump card for the GXP. When FPV introduced its cut-price model it decided to

de-tune the V8 so that it did not quite match the more expensive GT’s output. HSV decided that it wasn’t worth the trouble and left the LS3 engine well alone. So a GXP customer can get his or her hands on the same engine as a ClubSport R8 or Maloo owner and shell out considerably less cash, which is likely to be quite a lure. And what a good engine it is.

We drove both the manual and automatic transmission on the launch. The six-cog manual is the likely choice for enthusiasts, who don’t mind the fairly heavy clutch and the careful work required to change gears smoothly. While the six-speed automatic is not the finest transmission known to mankind, it does the job reasonably well, aided by the engine’s terrific torque. The interior of both the GXP sedan and ute will be familiar to both HSV and Holden Commodore SS and Calais drivers.

The problem for most customers is trying to enjoy the engine within the speed limits. Joining a club with access to a race track is probably a good idea.

It looks better than most of Holden products, but still generally cheap and dated.

People who push their GXPs are likely to appreciate the fact that HSV did not down-grade the brakes.

These Brembos (fourpiston front and single-piston rear) are hefty anchors, and while we did not press them hard on Tuesday’s launch in central Victoria, they have a good reputation for deceleration.

So much torque allows the GXP to lope around using few revs or, if you feel like getting stuck in, the engine is up for the job.

The premium centre display screen, from the premium Holden models, still looks good despite its age and the HSV-only centre gauges give the driver and impression he or she is in a performance car. Unfortunately, much of the plastic surfacing looks like it belongs to a far cheaper model and the instrument cluster computer graphics looked ordinary when the VE was introduced in 2006 and appear genuinely out of date now. Then there is the terrible hand brake which looks decidedly low-rent and the super-thick A-pillars which obscure so much of the road when turning right that it is surprising it was ever allowed to make it into production. Most of these problems are not HSV’s fault – they come with the Holden donor cars – but that does not make them go away. HSV likes to compare itself with Audi and BMW, which is fine, but the fact is that its interiors do not come within a mile of these two brands despite best efforts to improve on what they have been given. The exterior styling of the GXP sends out a confusing message. Both the sedan and ute clearly look like HSVs when viewed from the front, but resemble Commodores from the rear. For the past few years, HSV has done such a great job of making its cars look so much different from Commodores thanks

price point, but the result is a car that handles well, has a comfortable ride, good brakes and a gutsy muscle car V8.

Now, there is an HSV that could be confused with an SS in traffic, at least if viewed from the back.

The fact that it looks like a Commodore from some angles is probably something many potential customers can overlook when doing the sums.

Of course, you could look at it from HSV’s perspective and say that this provides a reason for the customer to step up to a ClubSport or Maloo, and that is a fair enough call. It is interesting that the GXP sedan has such a subtle rear spoiler. The lip spoiler of the W427 went down like a concrete diving jacket and it is generally accepted that when it comes to HSV customers and their view on spoilers it is a case of bigger is better. The rear-lip spoiler is out of place with the aggressive front end with its masculine bonnet scoops, bold bumper and those daytime running lights which loudly announce your presence on the road. The GXP has been cobbled together in a bid to hit a new

The GXP variants are about $9000 cheaper than their ClubSport R8 and Maloo ute equivalents when you take into account the value of the drive-away pricing included in the deal, and that is a handy wad of notes. This alone is likely to bring new customers to the HSV brand. I’d also be willing to bet a slab that the GXP and its sharp price will also lure some potential ClubSport R8 and Maloo customers who will welcome the chance to tighten their belts and still enjoy a rip-roaring V8 muscle car. © GoAutoMedia 2010

Ralliart division scaled down

MITSUBISHI has announced the “scale down” of its Ralliart motorsport and aftermarket division from the end of this month, but says current and future performance models like the Lancer Ralliart and Evolution will not be affected. The partial cease of Ralliart’s business activities, which were established in April 1984, was advised by Ralliart president Masao Taguchi in a letter to customers this week.

2010 PLATED RUN OUT • STERLING HX9500 • 525HP DETROIT 1 MILLION KM OR 5 YEAR ENGINE WARRANTY • 18 SPEED EATON AUTO SHIFT TRANSMISSION • DURA BRIGHT RIMS • WOOD GRAIN DASH • B-DOUBLE RATED

Mitsubishi already develops the Lancer Ralliart and Evolution models itself, so neither of the Japanese maker’s performance models will be affected in Australia or globally. Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited (MMAL) said it will be “business as usual” for Ralliart locally.

Brock legend lives on Ty Rayfield The legendary line of Brock Holden Dealer Team (HDT) Commodores will go down as one of the most popular and sought after model lines in Australia. One of the most prominent of the Brock SS line was the 1985 HDT VK SS Group Three. Ty Rayfield’s marque is a prime example of that era, a time when the ‘SS’ nomenclature meant much more than a few cosmetic changes and minor engine updates. Cosmetically, the Group Three boasted a more aggressive profile, including an additional air dam, bolder side skirts, letterbox grille and a larger rear spoiler. Colour options for the Group Three meanwhile were limited to silver or white. Finally, there were the distinctive HDT-developed alloy wheels, which showed a strong Chevy Corvette influence. But it was work under the paintwork which got many a driver’s blood pumping. Brock’s HDT workshop performed a host of modifications to boost the V8 powerplant’s output. They included enlarging the cylinder head ports, gas flowing the combustion chambers, fitting bigger valves and a different camshaft profile. A more free flowing exhaust system was also fitted to ensure all those modifications were capitalised on. Brock’s workshop also fitted higher-spec gas shocks and a reinforced front sway bar to ensure the Group Three could handle the road with its increased performance. There are also a host of more subtle changes, including different interior materials and a Brock steering wheel. Ty Rayfield’s example is one of the few still circulating on Australian roads in original condition. Oh, and by the way, this one’s currently for sale.

‘Slammers set to put hammer down

19/3/10 - Mildura Weekly

35

By BEN PISCIONERI AUSTRALIA’S quickest Top Doorslammers have arrived in Sunraysia. Drivers began arriving in the district earlier this week and have been making their mark, unveiling their spectacular machines at select venues ahead of tomorrow afternoon’s very first Sunraysia Slamfest. Well over 3500 tickets had already been sold for the event by yesterday morning, illustrating the interest from people across the nation. The Sunraysia Drag Racing Association’s Jenni Gledhill said there was a huge contingent of race fans coming from South Australia and a healthy number from throughout Victoria. She said there were also people coming from as far away as Alice Springs and many from Queensland, and enquiries were still flooding in. “The phone has just gone berserk,” Ms Gledhill said. “The phone starts ringing every day about 6.45am and doesn’t stop until 1am.” And the reason they’re coming from far and wide is because this is the very first event of its type in Australian drag racing history. Top Doorslammers racing down the Sunraysia Drag Racing Association’s one-eighth mile strip are expected to produce some of the most intense racing action in the category, as multiple Australian champion Victor Bray predicted when the event was first announced. He said due to the shorter distance (half of the usual quarter mile drag strips) reaction times would become vitally important. Bray said cars would reach speeds of more than 320km/h down the one-eighth mile. The meeting will also provide a chance for drivers to become Australia’s very first one-eighth mile Top Doorslammer record holder. Records for the highest speed and shortest elapsed time will be up for grabs. Drivers including Victor Bray, Ben Bray, Peter Kapiris and Maurice Fabietti have been attracting huge levels of interest during visits to local stores throughout the week as excitement builds before tomorrow’s big event. So far, 14 Top Doorslammers have entered the event, supported by a massive field of 23 Supercharged Outlaws.

hino.com.au

• ALL GOOD: Australian drag racing legend Victor Bray has given Mildura the thumbs up ahead of tomorrow’s Sunraysia Slamfest, while also proving popular with the media (INSET). There will also be 40 Super Sedans and 20 Modified Bikes, and stunt-riding displays from the renowned Matt Mingay, providing a massive number of vehicles for spectators to see in action. Ms Gledhill said the Sunraysia Drag Racing Association had put a huge amount of work into its facility in preparation for this weekend. “We’ve increased the size of our spectator mound because of the number of spectators we’re expecting, we’ve done a lot of internal bitumen works and have constructed a large shed in just one week, which will serve as the VIP area, so it’s been a massive week,” she said. While tomorrow’s racing starts from midday, spectators can get into the facility from 9am to ensure a good position.

Grandstand seating is available, but Ms Gledhill warns it’s a first in, first served situation. Racing will run throughout the day, finishing about 10pm. The headlining Top Doorslammers will be paraded in front of race fans before their first run of the weekend, providing a chance for spectators to see the drivers at a more leisurely pace than the 320km/h they’re expected to reach later in the meeting. Ms Gledhill said a limited number of tickets would be available at the gates, but urged people to prepurchase tickets She said earplugs would be available at the entry gates for children or spectators not used to the sound levels of this premier class of drag racing.

Jumping into motocross THE North West Victorian Motorcycle Club will launch its 2010 calendar in spectacular fashion this weekend with the opening round of the Club’s motocross series. This year’s series has been brought back to the traditional three rounds which should increase the intensity at each round, as each point will be much more valuable given there are fewer outings for riders. Organisers are expecting more than 100 riders on Sunday including some of the quickest in the region. If past seasons are anything to

Local fighters excel at State titles MILDURA’S Mixed Martial Arts fighters have successfully returned from the third annual Australian Federation Brazilian Jiu Jitsu South Australian Titles, claiming an unprecedented 30 medals. That tally included nine gold, 10 silver and 11 bronze, shared amongst the 23 fighters, aged 13 to 49, who made the trip to Adelaide on March 7. Renshinkan Mixed Martial Arts coach Mick Moloney, who spent the majority of the trip coaching from the sidelines, while also managing to claim a gold and silver for himself, said he couldn’t be happier with the group’s efforts.

won the Ultimate Fighting Championship (a promotion his family invented), which at the time was a single elimination tournament. Royce fought against much-larger opponents practicing styles including boxing, shoot-fighting, karate, judo and tae kwon do at that event, helping to launch the concept worldwide. UFC is now considered the fastest growing sport in the world, with millions of Australian viewers reently tuning in to ONE HD on February 21 to watch an event held in Sydney.

Expert seminar

Extremely proud “Our previous best at any Jiu Jitsu titles is 16 medals,” he said. “So I’m extremely proud of everyone who went across to Adelaide and helped double that tally. “It was fantastic to see local fighters do well at the State level, and something that we’re going to continually look to achieve.” Mick said that the form of the group’s younger entrants had been extremely impressive, with 18 medals coming from fighters aged 17 and under. “I think that fact alone was very encouraging, it was great to see a few of our young kids do well, and re-

Martial Arts, and is focused on taking opponents to the ground, before utilising ground fighting techniques, and submission holds including joint-locks and choke-holds. This type of fighting allows for larger and stronger fighters, whose advantage comes from reach and

power, to take on smaller opponents, who in turn can negate that strength when grappling on the ground. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has a wide variety of techniques, with a number of maneuvers (and counter-maneuvers) available to manipulate opponents into suitable positions for submission holds

once the fight is taken to the floor. Fights are won by either a points decision or submission, with competitors always aiming for the latter of the two. It’s a fighting form that first came to prominence in the 1990s, when Brazilian Jiu Jitsu expert Royce Gracie

Eight members of the group actually got the chance to meet Royce prior to the titles, with the expert hosting a seminar to demonstrate the many submission techniques associated with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. “It was unbelievable to be taught one-on-one by the man who single-handedly changed the face of Martial Arts around the world,” Mick said. “I know a number of the boys got a lot out of it, which they then put to use at the SA titles.” Mick said that the group were always looking to attract new members.

Irymple hoping to reverse ‘09 SCA result FOR the second consecutive year Irymple and Merbein South will contest the Sunraysia Cricket Association premiership, with both sides to hold nothing back in their bid to be crowned this year’s champions. Merbein South captain Adam Thomson said he was looking forward to the contest, and was confident his side would walk away with back-to-back premierships. “Not many sides get the opportunity to go back-to-back, so in that regard it’s very pleasing to make the final,” he said. “Hopefully we can get off to a flier, and really put the Irymple boys on the back foot.” For Irymple captain, and reigning joint Innes Medal winner Jason Bruhn, this week’s final is a chance at redemption for his entire team,

who failed to claim last year’s flag. “In any game 120 runs is never going to be enough,” he said. “And that was certainly the case last year. “Our top six batsmen need to step up, and if we can post a score of 200-plus batting first, then there’s no reason why we can’t win.”

Gutsy wins Both teams achieved gutsy wins last week, with Merbein defeating Mildura West, and Irymple the surprise victors over minor premiers Mildura East. Merbein’s bowling attack of Shane and Tony Trinick, Matt Walder, Jarrad Armsden and Gary Isaacs were superb for their side, reducing West to 121 from 60 overs.

•  PREPARATION: Irymple’s Rhys Webb and Jordan Payne. In reply the Saints got off to a shaky start, with openers Luke Jones and Chris Grimmer dismissed in the opening overs. With the score 2/4, Thomson

and Mark White set about rebuilding the innings, with their scores of 45 and 38 steadying the ship. When White departed at 3/75 the game looked secure, before four quick wickets had Merbein reeling at 7/108. When Aaron Walder was dismissed for 3 the score was 8/111, with veteran Tony Trinick and Matt Walder guiding their side to the finish line. The likes of Thomson and White are again going to be important, while the experience of Walder and the two Trinick’s could again prove the difference. “It’s very encouraging for me as captain to have guys like Matt, Shane and Tony around me,” Thomson said. “They’ve been around a while now, and have helped get us out of a hole several times in the last few years.” Thomson said batsmen Mark White was this weekend’s potential ‘x-factor,’ saying his trusted number three batsmen was due for a big score. “He’s looked very good all year, and could be the guy to produce something special,” he said.

Just scraped in For Irymple, its road to the Grand Final has been anything but smooth, with the side lucky to even contend the premiership after only just scraping through to the finals. Winning the toss and electing to bat, Irymple could only manage a modest 161 against Mildura East, with openers Jordan Payne (22) and Bruhn (33) getting their team off to a great start. Putting on 60 runs for the opening stand, their quick dis-

missals put a stop to the run scoring, with the elevated Mark Rudd scoring only 1 in his 11 over stay. Contributions from coach Brendan Payne (26) and Matt Button (27) helped get the Swallows back on track, before late hitting from youngster Aaron Graham (22) helped push the score to a competitive total. What followed was a disastrous chase for East, who after losing Innes Medalist Tom Vadjla and opener Jason Harris cheaply capitulated to be all out for 95. The Swallows bowling attack looked rejuvenated with the return of paceman Jake Reed, whose two wickets helped get the ball rolling for fellow bowlers Rhys Webb, Mitch Smith, Jordan Payne and Jeremy Weinert. “Jake just has the raw pace that every side wants, and we definitely struggled having him out of the side through injury,” Bruhn said. Irymple’s main key will be Bruhn, whose 650 runs for the year has been a standout. If he and fellow opener Payne get off to the flier, it will take pressure off Brendan Payne, Mark Rudd and Chris McGregor, who all have the potential to make big scores. For Merbein, their key is their bowling, something captain Thomson agreed has been a strength this season. “We’ve definitely bowled better than we’ve batted,” he said. “If Matt or Tony can get a couple of quick wickets with the new ball, it will certainly put the pressure on.” This game will be a ripper, with all of the action to start from 1pm tomorrow at Aero Ovals (11th Street). The Mildura Weekly is tipping the Swallows to win by the barest of margins in what will be a hard fought and highly entertaining game of cricket.

‘Dr Doug’ enjoys Jui Jitsu gold rush By VINNIE RODI WHEN patients of local chiropractor Douglas Hren arrived for appointments on Monday, it was to find their usually calm and friendly doctor sporting a nasty black eye. Thoughts immediately turned to the worse, specifically that their favourite ‘doc’ had been involved in some sort of altercation. And while for the most part that assumption was correct, the black eye is actually the result of an unfortunate ‘in-ring’ accident, with the 40-year-old part of a group of 23 local Mixed Martial Arts fighters to recently travel to Adelaide to compete at the third annual Australian Federation Brazilian Jiu Jitsu South Australian Titles. It’s an ‘injury’ Douglas doesn’t mind, after all it wasn’t the only souvenir he returned with, claiming four gold medals across four different divisions at the event. The group itself managed to win a record 30 medals, beating the region’s best previous effort of 16 (see previous page.). Douglas said that the now ‘infamous’ black eye had occurred during one of his gold medal bouts, the result of an accidental headbutt. “I didn’t even realise it happened,” he said. “One minute I was fine, the next my eye was closing up. “From what I’ve been told my opponent accidentally headbutted me, with the force enough to do some damage. “The referee actually wanted to stop the fight, but I told him I was fine, and we kept going.” Douglas claimed gold in the Gi and noGi sections, the 79-85 kilogram division, and open section, a feat that saw him compete in a staggering 12 fights. Conducted as five minute bouts, the physical and mental challenge of just one fight is enough to reduce an ordinary person to quivering and aching muscles and joints, with 12 a physical masterstroke. Douglas said that at one point he couldn’t remember walking from one fight to the next, and was amazed he had been able to participate in so many contests.

• WIN FALL: Douglas Hren celebrates his four Jui Jitsu gold medals with coach Mick Moloney (LEFT), before getting back to his day job as a local chiropractor, where his hard-earned black eye (INSET) caused quite a stir.

“It actually got to a point where I was walking off one mat, and then being called over to the next,” he said. “Physically and mentally it’s one of the toughest things I’ve ever done, and thankfully the results were worth it.”

Born and raised in Michigan, USA, Douglas has lived in Australia for the past 12 years, involved in a variety of Martial Arts since age 12. It’s a fascination that started in High School, after Douglas joined his school’s freestyle wrestling team. A sport not common in Australia (unless of course you like the World Wrestling Entertainment variety), Douglas continued to wrestle into his college years, before giving the sport away to concentrate on his

studies. After stints in Tae-Kwon-Do and other forms of Martial Arts, Douglas came across Brazilian Jui Jitsu while living in Mildura, with the fighting style, which focuses on ground fighting and submission techniques, strongly appealing to him. “The object of wrestling is to pin your opponent to the mat for a certain amount of time, using grapples and holds,” he said. “It’s the same with Jui Jitsu, except that rather than

pinning an opponent, you’re trying to make them submit. “It’s a very fast-paced and action packed sport, and one that takes real fitness and endurance to participate in, which is something I enjoy.” Douglas has only recently started participating in the sport at the competitive level, working with local Renshinkan Mixed Martial Arts coach Mick Moloney to help blend his prior wrestling experience with Jui Jitsu. Under Mick, Douglas has gone on to fine-tune his skills, with the hobby one he’s also been able to share with son, Matthew, 12, and daughter Maya, 9. “What I love about Martial Arts is the discipline and respect it teaches,” he said. “The fighting side of things isn’t the main point for a lot of people, it’s about building physical and mental toughness and fitness.” Matthew was also one of the fighters to contest the State championships, bringing home a gold and silver of his own. “It’s definitely a sport that I can share with my kids, and one that I highly recommend others to take up,” Douglas said. “A large majority of people look at the sport and think that it’s only about people beating one another up, but it’s not. “There are a number of people who come down simply for fitness, while others come down because they want to compete, it’s a sport that caters for everyone.” Douglas said that with the growing interest surrounding Ultimate Fighting Championship, a cage fighting promotion run out of the United States, more locals had decided to take up the sport. “I think it’s great,” he said. “Mick is a great coach, and the group down at the do-jo are high quality people who do everything they can to help one another out. “It’s an environment that I love being a part of, and would love to see more people take up.” More information on Brazilian Jui Jitsu, or Mixed Martial Arts, is available by visiting www.rskmma. com, or by contacting Mick Moloney on 0427 567 798.

Basically it’s a putting competition…trying to get that little white ball in the hole in as few shots as possible, and it has attracted players from around Australia. Allan Cox was the defending champ. He came from Sydney, and this week it was a case of…

Back-to-back wins for putting pro TWO of Mildura’s top PuttPutt players were among the best players in Australia contesting the National titles in Mildura this week. Alan Morris and Wally Walters are veterans of the sport, both past national titleholders, and both multiple Australian representatives at overseas championships. But while they were fiercely competitive at this year’s nationals, they were no match for the eventual winner Allan Cox of West Ryde, Sydney, who held on for a three shot lead after eight tight rounds yesterday. Allan was among 20 of the country’s best professionals and amateurs, drawn from Sydney, the Gold Coast, Canberra and Mildura, who contested events all this week at the Orange Avenue Putt-Putt course. Following a mixture of match play (winning or losing a hole) and stroke play (total score at the end of the round), it all came down to the final day yesterday – a series of eight games for the pros, and six for amateurs. The players were all hoping for a share in the $3000 in trophies and prizemoney put up for the week’s events, with yesterday’s event worth around $800 to Cox. Second at the professional level was Mildura’s Alan Morris on 227 shots, followed by Sydney’s Nathan Lamplough just one shot behind. The amateur section, held over six rounds, was won by Mildura’s Steve Molina (191) with Canberra’s Cecil Potts in second place on 206, and Mildura’s Trevor MacNeill third on 209. Wally said that although Putt-Putt numbers had dropped off in recent years, competition among the remaining 40 professionals in the country was fierce.

• CELEBRATING: Sydney’s Allan Cox celebrates back-to-back national putt-putt championships wins with a soft drink, while eventual runner-up, Mildura’s Alan Morris (LEFT) lines up one of the final putts of the competition. BELOW – husband and wife team Cecil and Maria Potts came all the way from Canberra for the week-long event.

He said there had been some great matches played at Mildura during the week, with an average round of 23 strokes for the 18-hole course. This compared favourably with the best-ever Australian round of 19 shots…and still a chance for someone to crack the magical even-par round of 18 – one shot per hole. The World-Wide Web says it has been done many times before, but only in the United States. America is one of the true homes of Putt-putt, a game that had its rough origins at Royal St Andrews, Scotland, in 1867 as a men’s putting club, which is still going strong. After catching on in

the USA, Putt-Putt spread quickly through the United Kingdom, Europe, Asia and Australia from the 1950’s, but interest has waned in recent years. Wally said interest in Mildura Putt-Putt had been strong in years gone by, but the sport had faced facing stiff competition in recent years from internet and mobile phone-based games and activities. He said anyone interested in the game, which he said presented unique and interesting challenge holes for players, could call in to the Putt Putt centre at the river end of Orange Avenue, near 7th Street.

Chess players set for RJ Shield THE Sunraysia Chess Club will host its first RJ Shield tournament of the year next Sunday, March 28, with both young and old players welcome to take part. The competition will be held at the Mildura Senior College library from 1pm to 5pm, with Under 8, U/10, U/12, U/14, U/18 and open age groups to feature. The tournament will follow rules utilised by numerous RJ Shield tournaments held across the country, with participants to play a ‘Swiss format,’ which ensures competitors face evenly matched opponents. All competitors will play seven games, with points to be awarded based on how many matches players win or draw. Matches will last a maximum 15 minutes per player, with one point to be awarded for a win, half a point for a draw and zero points for a loss. Sunraysia Chess Club president Robyn Adlington said the club was looking to build on the success of last December’s event, which attracted more than 30 players across all age groups. The tournament will be one of four held throughout the year, with the aim to promote chess as a fun and enjoyable past-time, while giving the region’s many players a chance to test their mettle against similar skilled competitors. Interested players can register through the club’s website www.sunraysia-chess. com, with more information available by contacting Robyn on 0427 092 404.
