TAKE OUR ADVICE BEFORE YOU TAKE ANYTHING ELSE

Elders hosted its second sale for the year at Yelta on Wednesday. The yarding of 13,000 Merino sheep and lambs drew interest from three States and was a hot, dusty affair with plenty of flies! Auctioneer and Elders’ territory sales manager based in Swan Hill, Dean Coxon, was keen to move the sale along to beat the heat and is pictured knocking down the pens in swift succession. See the ’Weekly next week when we take a closer look at the history of livestock sales at Yelta.

itting on the side of the highway waiting to catch speeding drivers, a police officer sees a car puttering along at 22kph. He says to himself, “this driver is just as dangerous as a speedster!” So he turns on his lights and pulls the driver over. Approaching the car, he notices that there are five old ladies – two in the front seats and three in the back – wide eyed and white as ghosts. The driver, obviously confused, says to him “Officer, I don’t understand, I was doing exactly the speed limit! What seems to be the problem?” “Ma’am,” the officer replies, “you weren’t speeding, but you should know that driving slower than the speed limit can also be a danger to other drivers.” “Slower than the speed limit? No sir, I was doing the speed limit exactly. Twenty-two kilometres an hour!” the old woman says a bit proudly.. The police officer, try-

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

ing to contain a chuckle explains to her that 22 was the highway number, not the speed limit. A bit embarrassed, the woman grinned and thanked the officer for pointing out her error. “But before I let you go, ma’am, I have to ask: Is everyone in this car OK? These women seem awfully shaken and they haven’t made a peep this whole time,” the officer asks. “Oh, they’ll be all right in a minute officer. We just got off Highway 189!”

Another award for the Weekly THE Mildura Weekly has picked up its fourth newspaper award for the year, this time for best use of colour. The plaque was presented at the Victorian Country Press Association editorial awards night in Healsville last Friday. The award, contested by Victorian newspapers with a circulation of 10,000 or more, is in addition to the three awards picked up by the Mildura Weekly just three months ago for excellence in all areas of advertising. Mildura Weekly manager Stuart Mensch, who accepted the latest award on behalf of directors and staff, said it demonstrated that the Mildura Weekly was visually appealing, as well as having excellent advertising and editorial content. He said staff and directors were also thrilled at being named as finalists in two other editorial categories, being ‘pipped at the post’ by the long-established Bendigo Weekly, which had coverage on the aftermath of the recent bushfires in their region. “The bush fire coverage dom-

inated the reporting awards, as you would expect from such a devastating event,” Mr Mensch said. “While we don’t produce our newspaper with the aim of winning awards, it’s great to be recognised by industry experts for what is perceived as a quality product,” he said. “These type of awards reflect the commitment to the newspaper by directors, and the effort put in by all staff over our three years of publication so far. “This year is the first year we have put in for any awards, and I am tremendously proud of a talented staff who have contributed to winning so many awards in the one year.” • WIN GRIN: Mildura Weekly senior writer and sub-editor Grant Maynard shows off our latest newspaper accolade, alongside some of the bound volumes of the newspaper containing colourful papers that contributed to the award.

Is Mildura the nation’s digital television capital or not?

eye tests available this week

Good and bad news for viewers By BEN PISCIONERI IN less than two weeks Sunraysia sports fans will finally have full access to the long awaited ONE sports channel on Ten Mildura. The breakthrough announcement this week comes almost eight months after the service was launched Australia-wide, and made available to much of the nation. Up until now Sunraysia viewers have only had access to a limited version of the sports service - from 1am to 6am each day, and only in high definition. Mildura’s full 24-hour ONE coverage will begin from 6.30am

on Tuesday December 1 and will be available in both standard and high definition, meaning residents with standard definition set top boxes will be able to pick up the channel. According to a statement from Ten Mildura this week, the standard definition ONE channel will be “in addition to its standard definition primary channel”. The breakthrough brings an end to months of frustration for Sunraysia viewers, who are among the last in Australia to receive the full ONE service, despite being selected as the city to lead the nation in the switch to digital-only television.

Meanwhile, in another case of regional viewers being left out in the cold, Channel 7’s new digital-only channel, 7TWO, came online on November 1, but once again regional viewers were not able to access it. The new channel is being billed as a ‘broad entertainment’ channel featuring themed nights of movies, action, mystery, lifestyle and more. Programs include a mix of classics such as Minder, Magnum PI and Coronation Street, prime programs including Fifth Gear and The Jay Leno Show and many first-run episodes of other popular programs.

Prime Television, which provides Channel 7 content in many regional areas including Mildura, has yet to announce a start date for the new channel. According to national digital television service Freeview, Southern Cross Television is the only network to announce a start date for the new channel in regional areas. “At this stage the only network that has announced an affiliation with Channel 7 is Southern Cross Television. They will launch 7TWO in Tasmania and Darwin on Tuesday 1 December, 2009,” according to a Freeview statement.

Container deposit legislation canned By GRANT MAYNARD THE reluctance of the Federal and State Environment Ministers to progress a national container deposit initiative has disappointed its many supporters, including Wentworth Shire Council. The Shire has been lobbying for Container Deposit Legislation (CDL) in New South Wales, like that already operating so successfully in South Australia, for years. It has often been a point of discussion in Council’s monthly meetings, and is a particular ‘pet’ subject of Wentworth’s Councillor Bill Wheeldon, who along with many of his fellow Councillors, is a vocal supporter of the concept. He points to the “filthy and disgraceful” roadsides between Paringi and Euston, along the Sturt Highway, as a prime example of why CDL needs to be introduced in NSW, if not the whole country. “It works well in South Australia,” he points out, “And all the hard work has been done... we could just adopt what they are doing.” On a more official level, Council was a joint signatory to a recent Local Government and Shires Association (LGSA) letter

to the Prime Minister, the Federal and State Environment Ministers – and signed by municipal mayors across the country – in support of a national container deposit scheme. In that letter, the municipalities argued that CDL would save councils $75million per year, while costing consumers only 0.4 cents per container.

of waste, so we urge the government to take swift action.” In their letter to the Ministers, Mayors stressed the benefits of a CDL system, including: • Up to 1 million tonnes of increased recycling providing resource conservation and energy savings in manufacture. • The efficient collection of ‘away-from home’ contain-

Shires Association president, Cr Bruce Miller, said at the time CDL would bring a range of benefits to rural and regional communities. “Communities will establish collection hubs and depots and be reimbursed a handling fee for their participation, while helping improve the environment at the same time,” he said. “CDL will provide more than 250,000 rural Australians with access to recycling for the first time. “It’s also an opportunity to rightly shift the responsibility for packaging from councils to the producers and consumers

ers that comprise around 50 per cent of all containers purchased. • 1.5 million tonnes per annum of increased greenhouse gas abatement. • A 12-15 percent reduction in litter. • Enough water savings to permanently supply 24,000 Australian homes. That letter was to have been tabled earlier this month at the latest Environment Protection and Heritage Council (EPHC), comprising National and State Environment Ministers, when they met to consider further action on CDL.

Previous meetings of EPHC in November 2008, and May 2009, had set the scene for the latest meeting on November 5 where Ministers were to consider studies undertaken on the subject this year. They were then expected to make a decision on whether to progress to a full Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS). “From Local Government’s point of view, it was essential that Ministers approved the next step, and commissioned the RIS,” Wentworth Mayor, Cr Margaret Thomson, said. “They were certainly aware that Local Government, a key player in the recycling industry, is strongly supportive of CDL.” But it didn’t happen. No decision was made to proceed with the RIS, and once more the subject of a national container deposit scheme appears to have been put on the back-burner. The EPHC’s inaction was a big let down for Mayor Thomson, a strong supporter along with her fellow Wentworth Shire Councillors of CDL. “They had an opportunity to progress CDL and chose not to.... I am very disappointed,” she said.

But the complicated make-up of the hospital appears to be the stumbling block. There are three parties involved in the Mildura Base Hospital. Ramsay Healthcare, which runs the hospital, the Motor Traders Super Fund, which owns the building, and the Victorian Government, which funds public healthcare in Sunraysia. Under the terms of the current public private partnership, the building becomes the property of the Victorian Government in 2015 Despite ongoing talks little progress has been made to date. “It’s long been recognised that the hospital is too small,” Mr Crisp said. He said all parties need to get together to thrash the issue out if progress it to be made. This week’s funding boost, announced by Victorian Health Minister Daniel Andrews on Wednesday, follows $67.7 million dollars in State Government funding for the hospital this financial year, a $4.3 million increase on the previous year.

Hospital funding boost a band-aid, says Crisp THIS week’s $209,000 Victorian Government funding boost for elective surgery at the Mildura Base Hospital is a welcome shot in the arm for local patients, but it could put more stress on what is already an overburdened hospital according to Member for Mildura Peter Crisp. Mr Crisp said while he welcomed any funding for the hospital, it could highlight problems in other areas. “This funding is extremely important because today’s elective surgery is tomorrow’s emergency surgery,” he said. “People recover from elective surgery much quicker than emergency surgery,” which could reduce the duration of hospital stays and, as a result, load on the hospital. But Mr Crisp said increasing the number of elective surgeries could stress other departments in the hospital. “This could cause other issues as there will be more day surgery, so there will be congestion in the post-op recovery area,” he said. “Similarly, people who have major surgery will need to recover in the wards. “We hear a lot about problems with people getting

that work through. “Obviously the hospital have got a plan on how they’re going to do that and about how they’re going to spend that money, and how it will help.” Mr Crisp says the core issue centres around the hospital’s master plan, which up

until now appears to have stalled. Previous concept plans for the hospital’s expansion boast the ability to double its patient load within 10 years, featuring a significantly larger emergency department, intensive care unit and birthing unit.

Belgravia acts on pool issues BELGRAVIA Leisure has pledged to keep a close watch on all aspects of its Mildura Waves operation in the wake of recent complains from user groups. Swimmers and users of the spa have recently expressed concerns at restricted opening times, and occasions when general cleanliness is an issue. Mildura marriage celebrant Shirley Cameron said this week she was concerned at some of the issues she has raised, and decided to go public after approaches by other pool users. The list of complains drew a swift response from Chief Executive Officer of Belgravia Leisure, Adrian Johnston, who said from Melbourne he had launched an immediate investigation. After the letter of complaint, listing several areas seen to be in urgent need of attention, was passed on to him, Mr Johnston said he had contacted Mildura staff and his area control manager, in an effort to work through any problem areas. “We take such complaints extremely serious-

concern, including cloudy water in the outside pool, restricted operating hours, insufficient notice of pool closure for swim carnivals, the condition of the spa and shower areas, the attitude of some staff, and restricted operating times of the popular Wave pool. Mrs Cameron said she recently had five guests from Noosa who wanted to try out the Waves pool on a 40-degree day, but were told they could only do that on a weekend. “I appreciate the cost of running that motor, but once again, the facility is there, and should have some flexibility for weather conditions,” she said. Mrs Cameron said the Waves facility had been paid for by the people of Mildura, it was maintained by their rates system, and yet users were restricted by its hours of operation. “This all reflects very, very badly on Mildura, and infuriates swimmers, and quite a few non-swimmers,” she said. Mr Johnston said he had been in touch with Mildura staff, and his area manager, as soon as Mrs

MILDURA will host a new, ‘first of its kind’ event next month, when the 2009 Human Rights Festival comes to life between December 7 and 12. The festival will coincide with ‘Human Rights Week’, and a number of activities are planned to promote social inclusion, community connectedness, while celebrating and raising human rights awareness. The Department of Justice, in partnership with a number of local agencies and organisations, is responsible for bringing the event to fruition, with Mildura manager of Justice Services, Rudy Kirby, saying locals were in for a number of educational and interesting activities. “This concept is going to be a way for our community to highlight some of the issues associated with human rights in Australia, and around the world,” he said. Mr Kirby said that one of the main aims of the festival was to bring different cultures living in Mildura together. “We want this festival to appeal to all of the cultures that make up our diverse community, and in the process help break down any barriers that may be present,” he said. Community activities will dominate the festival and Mr Kirby said that organisers were looking to turn the festival into an annual event. “We’ll certainly look to gauge community participation, and then aim to further develop and grow the concept for the future based on that feedback,” he said. “For now everyone involved is just excited to see this first event come to fruition, and we’re encouraging all community members to take part.” More information on the festival, or any of the events, is available by contacting Glenda on 5021 7492.

Cameron’s complaints were brought to his attention, and had ordered staff to work through any problem areas. “I get up to Mildura three or four times a year, and will be having a close look the next time I visit,” he said. “The operations manager will also be doing an inspection. I assure pool users that there will be more spot cleaning, and check lists.” Mr Johnston said it generally took a few weeks after the start of the summer season for pools to settle down, and he promised that staff would be keeping a close eye on cleanliness issues. “Belgravia looks after 68 pools throughout Australia, including 24 centres in Victoria, and we have an audit system in place, as well as surprise visits to various pools,” he said. “As far as the restricted hours are concerned, we can’t do much about that because the opening times are set by council, the same as entry fees.” Mr Johnston said Belgravia welcomed customer feedback, and promised that staff would act on any complaints.

Searing heat melts records temperature for November 2009 to more than 35 degrees - well above the 27.4-degree historical average for the month. There have been just six days this November where the maximum temperature has dipped below 35. Traditionally Mildura averages nine November days above 30 degrees. There have so far been 14 to yesterday morning. And at the upper end of the scale, the Bureau of Meteorology says there is on average half a day in November above 40 degrees. Up to yesterday morning there had been six, with the mercury tipped to again surpass the 40-degree mark yesterday. While several records have already been broken this week, the hottest November day on record remains in tact. That occurred on November 17, 1980, when the mercury hit a sizzling 44.5 degrees. Mercifully, Sunraysia residents can expect a welcome reprieve this weekend, with forecast temperatures in the mid-20s and periods of rain predicted. – BEN PISCIONERI

Council unveils new ‘fun box’ WENTWORTH Shire Council has unveiled a new, mobile skateboard facility – dubbed the ‘fun box’. Weighing in at 1850 kilograms, the easily portable, hydraulically operated and battery powered apparatus can be towed behind a ute as a road registered trailer. There is no lifting required, with the set-up, or packing away, process taking about 20 minutes. Made in Australia, it is designed to be vandal resistant, with vulnerable components not being accessible when it is

fully deployed. Wentworth Shire Mayor, Cr Margaret Thomson, said the municipality had opted in the first instance for a portable skateboarding solution “because we can target different towns”. At the same time, the Mayor was adamant the purchase of the ‘fun box’ did not mean that the proposal for a permanent Dareton skateboard facility had been shelved indefinitely. “A permanent facility at Dareton remains part of our Shire-wide Management Plan, subject to external funding assistance,” she said.

THE national media has made much of the string of hot November days experienced by Adelaide and Melbourne residents. But little mention has been made of Mildura, which is in the midst of one of its hottest Novembers on record. Several climate records have already been broken here this month. Up to yesterday morning there had been six days of more than 40 degrees for the month in Mildura. The only time the district has come close to that figure (since the Mildura weather station moved to the airport in 1946) was in 1980, when there were four days. It’s a similar scenario in terms of days over 35 degrees. Up until this November the most days over 35 degrees for the month was back in 1982, when there were 11. So far this November (up to yesterday morning) there have been 12 days. Traditionally, Mildura averages just three November days above 35 degrees. This has pushed the average

It’s an unlikely partnership, but one that Mildura’s Daniel Tankard is keen to pursue,

Sinking their teeth By ALAN ERSKINE

• LEARNING THE DRILL: Sandeth Phan is a keen observer as he watches Daniel Tankard work on a patient this week…Sandeth gives the thumbs up, RIGHT, to describe his week at Tankard Dental, while, BELOW, Daniel with other dental specialists from Cambodia and Malaysia during his visit to Cambodia last August.

THEY come from different sides of the world, from vastly different backgrounds, cultures and living conditions, but they are dedicated to working together to improve the lives of a nation fighting back from Cambodia’s infamous ‘Killing Fields.’ They met by chance – the highly qualified dentist from Mildura, and the shy young Cambodian dental student, but together they hope to mark their mark on a country decimated by genocide. Daniel Tankard jumped at the chance to do some voluntary work in Cambodia in August last year, working with the Brisbane-based orthodontist, oral and maxillofacial surgeon Dr John Arvier, his German colleague Professor Peutin and eight other dentists from around the world to carry out dozens of titanium implants in the jaws of public hospital patients in the capital Phnom Penh. Assisting them was Cam-

bodian dental student Sandeth Phan, 23, working up to his final year before graduating next year as a qualified dentist. Daniel said the visiting experts were all impressed with Sandeth, who was in the habit of sleeping at the hospital to care for patients after the removal of their cancers and other surgery by Dr Arvier and his team. Daniel was so taken by Sandeth’s work, commitment

to his people and his chosen profession, he arranged for the young Cambodian to spend a week in Australia, doing clinical observations of a wide variety of treatments at Tankard Dental in Langtree Avenue. It’s been the journey of a lifetime for Sandeth, with many new experiences inside and outside the dental clinic, but as much as he is enjoying Mildura, and Australia, he can’t wait to get back home to pass on to fellow students all the things he’s learned here. Daniel is more than impressed with Sandeth’s dedication, commitment and philosophy. “The one question everyone has been asking Sandeth during his time in Australia is would he like to come and live and work here,” he said. “Sandeth’s answer is always a polite but emphatic ‘no.’ He has a strong desire to learn as much as he can so he can return to Cambodia to help his people.” Sandeth is one of the

along with a bright, young and talented dental student from Cambodia. They are…

into a joint project ‘lucky’ ones. Born after the Pol Pot regime, and with both parents dead after continued health problems as a result of the harsh conditions imposed by Pol Pot, he was raised in an orphanage, where he made education his priority, so much so that he graduated dux of the class, to be given an opportunity that few youngsters in his country can afford. Dentistry was his chosen field, and for the past six years he has dedicated almost every waking moment to his studies… a fair effort considering the distraction of living with 10 youngsters aged between three and 12 while being raised by an auntie. And also fitting in weekend volunteer work at his former orphanage, looking after the oral hygiene of its 100 inhabitants. “I love children,” Sandeth says in broken English, “a big reason to go back home and help as many people as I can. There is much oral disease in my country.” Daniel agreed, and said

his brief experience in Cambodia highlighted the need for many more professional people, not just in dentistry, but in all medical and teaching professions, as well as the law. “To put it perspective, Mildura is lucky to have the services of two highly-qualified orthodontists,” he said. “In Cambodia, there are only two orthodontists for the whole of the country – that’s 14 million people. “There’s only 400 qualified dentists there… a lot of the work is done by unqualified ‘backyarders’, and that’s a situation that Sandeth is hoping to have an impact on when he returns home and graduates.” Sandeth said he was enjoying the challenges of dentistry, was highly appreciative of the time and effort the Tankards went to in arranging his visa and visit (taking six months), and he is already making forward plans for a return visit to Australia, perhaps to a big hospital in Mel-

bourne, for advanced studies so he can achieve the highest qualifications available. “Australia has a very good dental system,” he says. “I have seen many good ideas. I am making a lot of notes for me to take back and put into practice.” Daniel said he is keen to return to Cambodia at some stage in the future, not just to carry out more volunteer work, but to catch up with Sandeth and see how his work is progressing. • LOOKING, LEARNING: Daniel, left, and Richard Tankard from Tankard Dental go through a few of the finer points of oral hygiene with Cambodian dental student Sandeth Phan, during his stay in Mildura. Sandeth has spent the past week soaking up latest dental procedures under the guidance of Daniel, and says he can’t want to return home to pass on the knowledge to fellow students.

It was a brutal regime, costing the lives of 1.5 million people. Cambodia’s Pol Pot didn’t care for intellectuals, and they were either starved, tortured or murdered. But there are many, like a young man recently invited to Mildura, who are now…

Fighting back from ‘The Killing Fields’ POL POT and his Khmer Rouge thugs called it ‘social engineering.’ The rest of the world knows it as ‘The Killing Fields.’ The Khmer Rouge was the name given to the followers of the Communist Party of Kampuchea, the totalitarian ruling party in Cambodia from 1975 to 1979, led by Pol Pot. It was a brutal period in history that cost the lives of an estimated 1.5 million men, women and children, mainly from starvation, torture and executions. A new generation of Cambodians, born after this genocide but who know the story well, are now leading the nation in its recovery, working hard to replace professionals on every level whose ranks were decimated under a vicious regime. Sandeth Phan, 23, is among this new generation. He has been

working in Mildura for a week in clinical observations at Tankards Dental on his way to providing new skills, and hope, to his people (see story above). Pol Pot’s attempts at agricultural reform and absolute self-suffi-

ciency, even in the supply of medicine, led to widespread famine, and the deaths of many thousands from treatable diseases. Between 1976 and 1978, hundreds of thousands more were tortured and killed.

City-dwellers, especially the educated and intellectual elite, were ‘deported’ to the countryside, where they were subjected to forced labor. Anyone with connections to a foreign government joined them. If they objected, they were taken away and killed, then buried in mass graves. Children were separated from parents and brainwashed to socialism, while being taught torture methods using animals as a leadup to active involvement in the torture and murder of humans. A favourite Pol Pot regime quote to its people was; “To keep you is no benefit. To destroy you is no loss.” Cambodians were expected to produce three tons of rice per hectare; before the Khmer Rouge era, the average was only one ton per hectare. People were forced to work

for 12 hours without adequate rest or food. Western medicine was banned, replaced with traditional peasant medicine that resulted in many thousands of deaths. Family relationships not sanctioned by the state were also banned, and family members could be put to death for communicating with each other. Family members were often relocated to different parts of the country. Money, postal and telephone services were abolished. Many Cambodians crossed the border into Thailand to seek asylum. From there, they were transported to refugee camps, but very few were allowed resettlement to countries such as the United States, France, Canada and Australia. • Continued Page 10

Fighting back from ‘The Killing Fields’

Doing the Can Can • THERE are spaghetti cans, cake cans, vegie cans, coke cans… cans of all shapes and sizes… and more donations would be welcomed by the Mildura Weekly for our ‘Can Do’ food for the Salvation Army 2009 Christmas food appeal. The Mildura Weekly kicked off the campaign a few weeks ago, and our ‘Christmas Tree’ of cans is growing steadily. We’re going to box up all the cans just before Christmas, and drop them off to the Salvos so they can distribute them to needy families. Latest group to add to the pile was ResCom Mildura, and sales consultant Angela Walter is pictured doing something of a balancing act as she added donated cans to the stockpile yesterday. Readers of the Mildura Weekly are more than welcome to make a donation of a can or two. They can drop them in to our office at 73 Orange Avenue any time during working hours Monday to Friday.

• From Page 9 Today, examples of the torture methods used by the Khmer Rouge can be seen at the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, which occupies the former grounds of a high school turned prison camp. Some 17,000 people passed through this centre before being taken to the infamous ‘Killing Fields’ outside Phnom Penh. Most were executed by pick-axes to save bullets, and buried in mass graves. Of the many thousands who entered the Tuol Sleng Centre, only 12 are known to have survived. The exact number of people who died as a result of the Khmer Rouge’s policies continues to be hotly debated. In the early 1980s, the Vietnameseinstalled regime that succeeded the Khmer Rouge conducted a national household survey, which concluded that over 4.8 million had died, but most modern historians put the figure at between 1.2 million and 1.7 million. In December, 1978, relations between Cambodia and Vietnam collapsed. Pol Pot, fearing a Vietnamese attack, ordered a pre-emptive invasion of Vietnam. His Cambodian forces crossed the border and looted nearby villages. Pol Pot’s Army was repulsed by the Vietnamese, who then invaded Cambodia, capturing Phnom Penh on January 7, 1979. The Khmer Rouge retreated west, but continued to control areas near the Thai

border for the next decade. Following mass defections, and bitter factional in-fighting, the Khmer Rouge regime was removed from power in 1979, and replaced by moderate, pro-Vietnamese Communists. It survived into the 1990s as a resistance movement, operating in western Cambodia from bases in Thailand. In 1996, following a peace agreement, Pol Pot formally dissolved the organisation, and was placed under arrest. He died on April 15, 1998, having never been put on trial for his crimes, and despite causing the deaths of an estimated onefifth of his country’s population. In 1998, the remaining leaders of the Khmer Rouge apologised for the 1970s genocide, and by 1999, most members had surrendered or been captured. In the years since, Cambodia has gradually recovered, demographically and economically, from the Khmer Rouge regime, although the psychological scars affect many Cambodian families and communities. Because of the genocide under Pol Pot, Cambodia has a very young population and by 2005 three-quarters of Cambodians were too young to remember the Khmer Rouge years. Right now, the Khmer Rouge Case trials are taking place, with the charges accusing the Khmer Rouge regime of genocide and crimes against humanity.

Mission Aviation goes on show here MISSION Aviation Fellowship is on its way to Mildura, and the team of pilots and former pilots will be putting MAF on show to the public next weekend – with joyrides available for whatevera people are prepared to donate. Starting next Saturday from 9am at the Aero Club at Mildura Airport, members of the public, including students, will be invited to inspect a vintage aircraft, ask any questions about flying or the group’s activities, and take a scenic flight. MAF says a frequentlyasked question relates to the group’s activities flying vital supplies in and out of remote mountain regions of Papua New Guinea, and visiting remote indigenous communities in Australia’s Arnhem Land. MAF Area Representative for NSW, Mr Tom TealeSinclair, said he and the other MAF staff would be present to meet visitors and raise awareness of the work of MAF around the world. “We want to showcase Mission Aviation Fellowship to the community, and let people know about the life-saving work that MAF is performing in almost 40 countries around

the world,” he said. “We believe we have a message to take, not only to people in the larger urban centres of Australia, but also out to regional centres like Mildura. We urge people to come and have a chat.” The group will kick off the Mildura weekend with a school assembly at Mildura Christian College next Friday, followed by youth group activities at multiple church venues. The Saturday flights will

be followed by presentations at various Sunraysia churches. Mission Aviation Fellowship came into being in the UK after World War II as a result of Christian airmen wanting to use their aviation skills to serve those in need in remote places. It was established in the United States in 1945. Inspired by the American and English fellowships, a group of Australian airmen studying at the Melbourne

Bible Institute in 1947 formed the Australian Missionary Aviation Fellowship. In April 1951, pilot Harry Hartwig and his family, along with engineer/pilot Bob Hutchins and his family, began operations in Papua New Guinea in a single engine “Auster Autocar,” but Hartwig was killed when the plane crashed just four months later. The program was re-launched a year later, and has continued meeting the physical and spir-

Changing climate has this group ‘on the run’ THEY are ‘buzz’ words that are on everyone’s lips at the moment – ‘climate change’, and ‘global warming’. Former United States Vice-President Al Gore started the ball rolling, and now millions of people from around the world have answered the call. They include a group of 25 front-line emergency services personnel from various parts of the nation who last week set off on a 6000-kilometre run to raise further awareness of the problem. Men and women police officers, State Emergency Services, paramedics, firefighters and military personnel set off from Cooktown, allowing themselves just four weeks to run to Adelaide, and then to Melbourne.

Imminent arrival They are expected to arrive in Mildura tomorrow for a scheduled two-day rest, and with a focus on climate change impacts on the Murray River, before continuing on into SA, and then on to Melbourne via Robe, Portland, Apollo Bay, Ballarat and Kilmore. Run coordinator Richard Hayward told the Mildura Weekly before the run started that his team had been overwhelmed with messages of support, and was looking forward to meeting with the people of Mildura, who have obviously already to feel the effects of climate change. “There are great opportunities for the Mildura community, in terms of developing sustainable energy generation through solar

thermal investment, and for the farming community to generate income through carbon sinking into the soil,” he said. “We will be talking about these opportunities, and some of the solutions to climate change, when we arrive in Mildura. There’s a free community forum at Mildura Function Centre at 6.30pm on the 21st.” The Australian run is in partnership with the National Australia Bank, and the route will take runners through capital cities, regional centres and rural towns, engaging with all levels of these communities. The run will combine with leading scientists who are tracking a range of increasingly dangerous and destructive impacts of global warming affecting Australia’s communities, water and food security, coastal settlements and world famous ecological icons. The runners will also highlight energy resources and technologies – includ-

Our rockers miss out on art national GBOB finals mattersoft fth he

By VINNIE RODI MILDURA rockers Jackson Firebird and Off the Handle remained disappointed this week after failing to secure a place in the Global Battle of the Bands national final last Thursday night. And while both bands gave it their all in the Regional GBOB final held at O’Malley’s Irish Tavern last Thursday, it wasn’t meant to be, with judges naming Adelaide group ‘Generation Swine’ winners. The 1980s-inspired ‘glam rockers’ were visibly overjoyed with the win, saying that they were excited to receive an opportunity to contest the Australasian leg of the competition in Sydney next week. Jackson Firebird were named runners-up, with drummer Dale Hudak saying that he and fellow member Brendan Harvey had been surprised to finish second. “We didn’t expect to win it, and even coming second was a bit of a shock,” he said. “Obviously it would have been nice to go to Sydney, and missing out is disappointing, but it just wasn’t meant to be.” Dale said that he had been impressed with the vast array of talent, with heavy metal group ‘Soulforge’ in particular winning him over. “I thought those guys were fantastic,” he said. “I personally had my money on them to win.” Off the Handle guitarist Brad Allen said that while his band had been similarly disappointed not to get through, they wouldn’t be overly dwelling on the loss. “We were obviously a little disappointed not to get through, but on the other hand being part of a competition this big was a great opportunity to get more experience under our belt, and play against bands from major areas like Adelaide,” he said. “Basically the five best bands in the region were competing on the night, so it was always going to be tough. Each band were good in their individual styles, and it’s just unfortunate for us that we didn’t get through.” While the competition could only be labelled a success for organisers and O’Malleys, it didn’t get off to the best start, with two bands forced to withdraw prior to the event.

• ROCK STARS: ‘Generation Swine’ share a moment of celebration after being named Battle of the Band winners, ABOVE. Jackson Firebird, that’s guitarist Brendan Harvey, TOP RIGHT, and the boys from ‘Off the Handle’, RIGHT, proved a hit in front of their home crowd.

And while unfortunate, it did allow the remaining five bands more time on stage, performing five songs rather than the originally allotted three. Jackson Firebird opened proceedings, getting the crowd going with their unique style and ‘bottlebin’ antics. Brendan and Dale mesmerised the crowd, with Dale easily the best drummer of the night, while Brendan’s husky vocals and rocking guitar rifts were also a highlight. Next came young Murray Bridge band Generation Why, led by the

only female singer to feature on the night, Gemma Leonard, who was eager to prove that the girls could rock just as hard as the guys. Metal group Soulforge were out next, with front man Dale Cornen’s vocals easily the best effort of the night, while guitarist James Barlow’s silky finger-work proved spine-tingling. Eventual winners Generation Swine were the second to last band to take the stage, with the group’s legion of Adelaide fans making the long trip to show their support. On stage Gen Swine looked the part of 1980s rockers, with hair

styles and costumes rivalling any group from that era. Their original material struck a cord with the crowd, with their catchy lyrics and easy rifts getting the attention of both the audience and judges. Last for the night were Off the Handle, who came out all guns blazing in front of their home crowd. They had arguably the biggest support base in attendance, with dozens of people walking around in OTH T-shirts. Throughout the group’s set guitarists Brad Allen and Baux Tarr produced their best work, with bassist Dan Probst’s deep backing vocals

adding a great contrast to singer Baux’s register. And while neither local band walked away with the win, both Dale and Brad said their respective group’s would continue to work toward a future in the music industry. For Jackson Firebird next year will see the release of its highly anticipated debut album, which the boys have spent the past four months working on. “We’re about half way through,” Dale said. “We’ve been pretty lazy with it to be honest, spending the majority of our time focused on playing gigs. “We’ll probably head back to the studio in January, and start work on nailing the rest of the album. The main thing for us is putting an album out there that we’re both happy with.” Brad said Off the Handle would firstly take a break over the Christmas period, before attempting to secure more gigs in areas like Adelaide and Melbourne. “It’s been a pretty big year for us,” he said. “Between releasing our debut album, this competition, and the number of gigs and festivals we’ve played in Loxton, Broken Hill, Renmark and Melbourne, it’s been very hectic. “We’ll probably look to get back into routine next February, and focus on fine-tuning some new music. “At the moment each of us has an idea of where we want the band to go, so it will be good to sit down and decide what our goals are for next year.”

Our future should be in good hands THE Northern Mallee Leadership Program for 2009 has ended with participants celebrating their achievements at the end of year graduation. The program, which has been running for the past nine months, bought together a diverse group of motivated and proactive people who have pledged a commitment to the future of the Sunraysia region. Formalities included Mildura Mayor Glenn Milne and new Council CEO Mark Henderson providing an insight into their own leadership experiences, before MADEC chairman Bill Nicol and Deputy Mayor Susan Nichols presented the participants with their certificates and graduation pins. A highlight of the evening was when two of the group, Amy Nicol and Kaare Anderson, ensured guests were treated to vivid descriptions of their experiences during the program. Amy took guests through the adventure of the open-

ing retreat, through to excursions in Canberra and Melbourne, and most recently the final retreat held at Lake Cullulleraine, demonstrating how significantly the group had grown during its time together.

Projects in spotlight Showcasing the community projects that the participants had been undertaking during the program, Kaare then bought to life the various details of each project. They included the adaptive reuse of the Old Mildura Hospital, the push for the return of a parenting centre for Sunraysia, an information and support network for truck drivers and their families, new uniforms for the Merbein Netball, a come and try cricket and sports day for kids on the East side of town, and a photography competition to celebrate the Merbein Centenary. Additional excitement was created through the ab-

sence of two participants, Michelle Arnold and Samantha Cooke, who were unable to attend the ceremony… midwife Samantha was delivering Michelle’s first grandchild. The baby arrived just as the formalities ended, much to the delight of all involved. Whilst the 2009 program has formally concluded, organisers said participants were committed to ensuring their collective skills and knowledge will continue to be put to good use within the community, with participant Mark Turlan heading up the group to ensure an Alumni is established and the network is maintained.

• FUTURE LEADERS: The youth leadership graduates of 2009 celebrate their achievement, with program co-ordinator Jane Hill (blue dress, front) and chairman Ian Ballantyne, middle row, far right.

McPlenty to McSmile about on McHappy Day

THERE were McHappy smiles all round on Saturday as Mildura’s McDonald’s stores raised a record-breaking $11,786.78 for charity. Add the proceeds from the Renmark franchise, also owned by Mildura’s Rob Vigors, and the total soared to just under $17,000. A total of 1796 Big Macs went out the door during the fund-raiser. Sporting stars, media representatives, civic, business and community leaders combined with emergency services personnel to throw their considerable weight behind the campaign, with several challenge trophies up for grabs. The media challenge was won by the Mildura Weekly’s Vinnie Rodi, with 34 Big Macs sold in the allotted hour at the Deakin Avenue outlet. Advertising manager Tara Ridley wasn’t far behind, working from the City Heart outlet. Among those also working hard for charity at the

THERE is no doubting the passion that Mildura’s Cr Mark Eckel has for Mildura. And that’s ALL things Mildura, embracing our heritage, tourism, history, sport, cultural diversity, wining and dining… the lot. And as he says… you never stop learning, and should always be striving for improvement. Just back from a councilsponsored fact-finding goodwill visit to our sister city Upland in California, regular readers would be aware of Cr Eckel’s passion for the historical connection, as evidenced from our two-part series on the visionary Chaffey brothers. During his overseas visit, Cr Eckel wasted no time in documenting, in words and photographs, how Mildura could follow the example of USA towns and cities which obviously take great pride in how they present themselves to residents and visitors. “One of my big gripes at present back home (Mildura) is the number of untidy and unkempt nature strip bark chip gardens,” he said. “Whether they are outside houses or commercial properties, it’s not a good look, and really downgrades our streetscapes. “It’s a problem, with more artificial gardens going down because of the water shortages, and will probably worsen as the bark fades, thins out and is dispersed, allowing more weeds to grow.” Cr Eckel said he had visited areas of the California townships Etiwanda and On-

tario that had been beautified at little cost, and which were now showpieces, and widely used by walkers, joggers and cyclists. There are scenes he would like to see repeated in Mildura. Cr Eckel also urged people to be patient in relation to the Deakin Avenue centre plantation, where the tree population has been decimated in recent weeks. He said it was a similar story in Euclid Avenue, Upland’s major thoroughfare, some of which had been replanted 10 to 12 years ago, and which now featured a variety of colourful, shady trees, walking paths, pedestrian cross-overs and garden beds. Cr Eckel said he was impressed with the variety of trees selected for the Euclid Avenue rehabilitation, and believed Mildura could learn a lot from the Upland experience. In a report to council, he told how six kilometres of

Euclid Avenue was now recognised as a national beauty, and recorded as such in the National Historic Registry. Incorporated within the 200ft roadway width is a 60ft median strip, and two parkways varying between 25ft and 35ft wide. “This beautiful corridor has two distinctive, unique segments,” he said. “Between Foothill Boulevard and 24th Street, the median functions as a multi-purpose trail, frequented by local residents as well as visitors, and the 60ft–wide median functions as a green park, with turf and small rose gardens at selected locations.” Cr Eckel said Euclid Avenue was home to more than 1300 Silky Oak trees, generally 100 to 115 years of age, and 70ft tall. There were also 900 Pepper Trees in the centre plantation, some also up to 100 years old and up to 60ft tall. Other species include Carrotwood trees, various pines and oaks.

come from Upland visit “To interconnect the multi-purpose trail, special pedestrian crosswalks were installed to connect the medians in order to facilitate safe, orderly flow of pedestrian traffic,” he said. “Special traffic signal software was developed to enable a sophisticated traffic signal operation. The northbound and southbound traffic signals are over 100ft apart, functioning as two separate, yet closed intersections. The customised software interconnects the two closely spaced signals to ensure safe pedestrian crossings. Cr Eckel was also impressed with the way that Upland honoured sons and daughters lost to wars, and raised the prospect of paying formal tribute to personnel from the Mildura area who lost their lives in the theatre of war. He said many towns in California, Ranch Cucamonga and Upland included, have dedicated banners on overhead light poles in memory of the fallen, in a move widely supported by town residents. And Cr Eckel also wants to see more private compa-

tivator newspaper, forerunner to the Sunraysia Daily of today, which was of significant historical value to the region, and which should be recognised with an appropriate plaque and short history. He said there was also room for a purpose-built Mall kiosk that would double as the City Heart visitor information centre, an idea that had been in the pipeline for some time, and which should be implemented soon. “The kiosk I visited has provision for visitors to be served under cover with heating and cooling depending on the weather, and with the option of having it opened up at night for special festivals or events. “And two other innovative ideas took my eye while I was on a stroll through the Victoria Gardens Mall. “They had Feast Street barriers erected, ornate and permanent barriers for the safety and privacy of diners, and nearby was a free courtesy coach for shoppers… its job was simply to do a continuous circuit of the main shopping precinct, picking up and dropping off shoppers at regular and clearlymarked bus stops.” Anyway, as Cr Eckel says, it’s all food for thought…

• IDEAS MAN: Mildura’s Cr Mark Eckel, INSET, says Mildura could learn a lot from some of the ideas being embraced by our sister city of Upland in California. They include permanent designated dining areas in Feast Street, and personalised name plates, designating important places of interest, and paid for by private companies or individuals. nies and businesses helping share the cost of special

Wentworth’s growing arts community has expanded once more, but this time in a very

There’s a new By GRANT MAYNARD THERE’S a kind of serendipity at work. Sailors were once recognised as a stronghold of tattoo art, and Wentworth was once the nation’s third largest port – behind Sydney and Newcastle. Sailors and ports go hand in hand, and admittedly things have changed a lot since then... Wentworth is no longer a bustling commercial port, and tattoos are now seen in many other spheres outside the navy, or merchant marine... but there’s a link that did strike a chord for me. Celebrities, from movie stars to AFL footballers, now sport tattoos – as much as a fashion accessory as anything else – and there is a growing social acceptance of an art-form that has a very long history, but that was for centuries in ‘polite’ western circles a taboo. However, there has been a quiet revolution going on over the past decade or two, and now there are growing ranks of people, from housewives to businessmen, lining up ‘to get inked’. “Many more people are getting a tattoo these days,” partner in the new ‘Oztatz’ Wentworth studio, Scott Taylor, says. “It is a trend fuelled by the increasing number of celebrities who are unashamedly displaying body art... as well as tattooing’s growing social acceptance as a legitimate form of decoration and art,” he said. Scott said for many people, getting a tattoo was an opportunity to make a statement of individuality in what was becoming an increasingly homogeneous world. “Tattoos often say something about the person wearing them,” Scott said. “They are looking to make their own mark in the world.” Evidence of the growing acceptance of tattoo body art is the increasing number of tattoo specific magazines from all over the globe, a selection of which sits in a tidy pile

• STYLISH: The studio has more in common with a hair dressing salon then a typical tattoo shop, ABOVE, with a lot of effort having gone into making both the clients and the artists comfortable. The screen at the left shields one of the artist’s work stations. Darin Taylor, in the green shirt, touches up the tattoo of his business partner, Scott Taylor as a test for the the studio’s new, state-of-the-art equipment.

on the new studio’s coffee table in the waiting area. A quick flick through reveals an almost overwhelming array of colourful art and on all areas of the body – arms, legs, back and front of the torso... So why Wentworth? “Why not?” was Scott’s answer. “Our business will be by appointment only... we will not be relying on passing trade. “Also, Wentworth is discreet... not everyone getting a tattoo wants

the world to know about it. “Contrary to what seems to be a popular belief, not everyone wants to flaunt their art. Some tattoos are very private, and the people who have them want it to stay that way.” Wentworth is also handy to a wide area, both to Sunraysia and further afield, Scott’s partner, Darin Taylor, says. (No, they are not related!) “A lot of people who are serious about their tattoo art are willing to travel to get what they want and of-

ten have a loyalty to a single artist or shop,” he said. “We are expecting people to travel to Wentworth from across from South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales,” Darin said. “And we have been careful about the way we have established our business here. This is not a ‘tattoo parlour’, it is a studio, and I think that difference is reflected in the way we have set it up... I think many people would be surprised.” The studio is occupying one of two recently renovated shops on the corner of Wentworth’s Darling and Sandwych Streets. And the decor, the result of a collaboration with Mildura’s Vast Interiors, has more in common with a hairdressing saloon then what most people would picture for a tattoo studio. The walls are not adorned with what the artists call ‘flashes’ – the

traditional gallery of designs for clients to choose from. “That’s not our style,” Darin says. Instead there is muted wall lighting, a large statue of Buddha dominating the window space and a water feature, the sound of which adds a calming ambience to the studio. Overall, the studio has a quiet, reflective ‘feel’. “We like to spend time with our clients... acknowledging the fact that choosing a tattoo is an important decision and not one made lightly... that is why we insist on an appointment... it gives us time to talk them through it, and decide on a design.” Both Scott and Darin have more than a decade of experience in the tattoo industry as artists, and have been business partners for the past two years trading as the tattoo supply company ‘Oztatz’ – the largest

different direction with the opening today of a tattoo studio in the historic river port town...

body of art in town discount tattoo supply company in Australia. They are now expanding that business to set up a network of studios under the ‘Oztatz Studioz’ banner. Wentworth is the pair’s second studio, the first being established earlier this year in the south Brisbane suburb of Acacia Ridge. More are planned, and there is a strong chance the next may be in Melbourne. “Time will tell,” they say. The Wentworth Studio has been set up with three work stations – one each for Scott and Darin, and one for fellow artist and freehand specialist Warrick Rentsch, who has also been ‘inking skin’ for more than 10 years. Although it is unlikely all three will ever be working at the one time, the facilities are there if demand means they need to. Each working area is screened from the rest of the studio space, and each work station is self- contained... the first thing you see is the bench and rests with the other tools of the trade – like inks, needles and the obligatory rubber gloves and medical swabs – unobtrusively stored in a cupboard but in easy reach. “We’ve set it up to be as com-

fortable as possible for both ourselves and the clients,” Scott said. “Tattooing has entered a new phase in recent years,” he explained, “Driven by increasing technological sophistication and wider community acceptance.” “There’s just about nothing that cannot now be tattooed on the skin with, in many cases, almost photographic realism. “Sure there are still people who do not like tattoos, and probably never will, but there are a growing number of people lining up for them... and we’re not just talking about people who identify with any one of a number of traditional subcultures generally associated with body art.” “It has often been thought of as a male thing for example, but we are seeing increasing numbers of young women, mums and even older women who have always wanted one, but up until now have been a little afraid of what people might think, coming in. “Their tattoos are often discreet, but they are there... believe me!”

• PARTNERS: Darin, left, and Scott Taylor are excited about their new venture using some of the world’s newest ink technology and vivid colours, LEFT, and INSET, the head of their guardian Buddha.

While Scott, Darin and Warrick will be the artists in residence at Wentworth, there are plans to have others visit from around the

globe, from time to time. As an example, the partners have a mutual friend, and fellow artist, who is a South Sea Islander and specialises in the traditional tattooing of his people. “He spends hours with clients getting to know them, and their

family history, before he begins work because everything he tattoos has a meaning,” Darin said. That artist is expected to be one of those visiting Wentworth in the future, and there are likely to be others too. Darin and Scott explained that the tattoo community is growing exponentially, both the number of artists taking part and the number of people getting tattoos. But, he said, in Australia at least, many of the artists still know, or know of, each other. “For so long it was a small and specialised industry,” they said, “So everyone tended to know each other.” “And although the community is expanding rapidly these days, we are managing to keep in touch via the Internet on specialist websites like www.getinked.com.au – ‘Australia’s largest online tattooing resource for the inked community’ and through the contact we have with people through our supplies business.” A quick look at the Oztatz website (www.oztatz.com) reveals testimonials from artists from as far away as Turkey. The tattoo world, like the world proper, appears to be a much smaller place than it used to be. For more information contact Scott on 0407 284 225; Darin 0410 680 960 or Warrick 0427 186 927.

$2,000 – however, you may ask if they will accept a higher or lower increment. While most auctioneers will announce that the property has passed the reserve and is on the market, there is no requirement to do so; if you are unsure you should ask. It is important to note that if the home is passed in below the reserve, the owner, through their estate agent, will first negotiate with the highest bidder for the purchase. If you have participated in the bidding, or have been sitting back watching how it is progressing, and the auctioneer announces that the property is going to be passed in, it is a good strategy at this point to make sure you are the highest bidder to secure the exclusive right to negotiate with the vendor. Once the property’s passed in, it is too late, as bids cannot be accepted past this point.

Mildura Weekly - 20/11/09

www.milduraweekly.com.au

Christmas magic comes to Mildura WHEN it comes to Christmas, Melbourne magician Elio Simonetti has a few tricks up his sleeve, and he will be sharing them with Sunraysia shoppers at Centro Mildura next Sunday, November 29. Elio has issued a personal invitation to all readers in the Mildura Weekly circulation area to be a part of the free shows, which will be held at 11am and 1pm on that day. Along with his helper Eva Salleh, Elio says he will bring out the best of his tricks from his own Santa stocking for the benefit of mums and dads and all the youngsters. “This is a magic show that has proved very popular in the past,” Elio said. “When it was suggested that we put something together especially for the festive season, we jumped at the opportunity. This show has taken us six months to put together.” ‘The Magic of Christmas Show’ is a collection of what Elio

describes as “astonishing occurrences.” Animals appear out of thin air, money that is normally found in pudding is discovered lingering invisibly amongst the audience, and Christmas decorations behave in a most mysterious manner! “One of the things that makes our performance unique is that it can be genuinely enjoyed by the whole family,” Elio said. “Christmas presents a wonderful opportunity for families to come together and bond as a community.” The highlight, of course, will be the arrival of Santa, and Elio can’t wait for the reaction of his Mildura audience to this special event. “All over the world, in every country we’ve performed in, we’ve noticed just how much everybody adores Santa,” he said. “He really brings out the best in people. So we’re going to do our best to make Santa magically materialise on the day, right in the middle of all the festivities.”

• HAVING A BALL: Elio the magician with his helper Eva and a new set of Christmas decorations, but where did they come from? His magic show will reveal all.

UNITING Care is another organisation working locally to make sure no-one goes without a present this Christmas. Lyn Adams from Sunraysia Uniting Church says the 2009 appeal is up and running in conjunction with Target, and people are welcome to select a gift tag off the tree and replace it with a present for someone in need. “It has been a particularly tough year for many people,” Lyn said. “We are seeing an increasing number of people needing both emergency relief and assistance, and our wish for 2009, our 18th annual appeal, is to distribute at least 150,000 presents for people who are struggling financially.” “We are asking Target shoppers to dig deep, and spend a little bit on others when they are selecting presents for their own families. “This year, everyone has felt the pinch to some extent, but it’s easy to forget that those most disadvantaged suffer more. There are children, teenagers, families and

• TREE-MENDOUS IDEA: Well-known local chef Dag Demarkow (Trentham Estate Wines) and his son Maximilian, 5, pick their tag prior to getting a present to leave under the tree. Watching are Target staffers Jan Allen and Lesley Maginess. older people who often can’t afford to celebrate Christmas with gifts.” Lyn said that for many of these, dealing with the emotional pressures of financial hardship could push them to breaking point. She invited shoppers to take a tag off the Target tree, either buy or

make a gift, or purchase a gift voucher, and leave it at the tree or with the checkout staff for collection by Uniting Care volunteers for distribution to needy families before Christmas. “All the gifts donated locally stay in this area, so it’s a great way for people to contribute to

local needs,” she said. Since the appeal started, it has provided 1.6 million gifts, with 95,000 distributed last year alone. “With two million Australians living in poverty, a gift will go a long way to helping our disadvantaged over Christmas,” she said.

OBITUARY Another strong link with the former local department store Maples has been lost with the recent death of Mildura’s Jim Lee. But there was more to the man than met the eye, including a Chinese connection, a great sporting background, and the…

• GREAT SPORT: The late Jim Lee (INSET) as many Mildura people would remember him in recent years, and again (BELOW) as a member of the Mildura East Cricket Club premiership team of 1947. Jim is in the front row, far right.

Pact of a loving family man JIM LEE 1913 - 2009

Beijing)-born Chinese immigrant Arthur Low Lee and his Australian wife Alice Mary Elizabeth Rostron Andress. Arthur Lee had arrived in Australia as a 13-year-old with an uncle, worked in the copper mines of Tasmania for a time before returning to the mainland, working as a cabinet maker, firstly in Bairnsdale, and then Melbourne and Sydney, where he suffered tuberculosis, passing away at the age of 45.

selected for a game in the VFL. But it wasn’t to be. When his mother found out, she banned him from the training track, saying he was too small for football at that level, and would be killed! “Dad never forgot what his mum did,” Allen said. “He had all the skills, was very quick on his feet, and felt he had what it takes to join VFL ranks. It was one big regret in his life, and he was still talking about his mother’s harsh decision only six months before he died.” Instead, Jim Lee got involved in other sports, such as cricket and soccer, and also took up road racing with a friend, racing a sidecar outfit at Phillip Island and other tracks. They won many races, accompanied by a few crashes, racing at speeds approaching 100mph (160kph), and Allen remembers his dad telling him about the time the sidecar hit three cows crossing the track during one race. The cows

A career cut short Jim was raised firstly by an aunt in St Kilda, and later lived with his mother in Carlton where, despite being of slight build and only 5ft 6ins tall, caught the eye of Carlton Football Club talent scouts during his amateur football days. The Blues invited him to their training sessions, and he tried to keep this a secret from his mother, wanting it to be a surprise if he was

were killed, the bike was wrecked, and Jim and his sidecar mate were off the racetrack for many weeks recovering from their injuries. Allen still has his dad’s old 1913 Matchless motorbike at his Melbourne home. When war broke out, Jim Lee was among the first to enlist, firstly with the CMF, and less than a tear later with the Army, serving two stretches in New Guinea and the Solomons.

Taught to shoot Taught to shoot rabbits and other vermin (usually on the run) by his step-father Ted Riordan, Jim became a crack shot, and was earmarked for duty as a sniper before being seconded to the 2nd 1st Guard Regiment to stand watch over Allied generals, and later their captured enemy counterparts. At war’s end he married, working for the Melbourne department stores of Snows and Foys before coming to Mildura as a 24-year-old, when he started work in the display and advertising section with Maples, an association that lasted the next 40 years. As busy as he was at work, Jim Lee found plenty of time for sport. He played golf off an 11 handicap (he was the first-ever handicapper • EASY-RIDERS: That’s a young Jim Lee in the sidecar of a mate’s Norton motorcycle during their racing days, and ABOVE LEFT, as a dashing young Army man about to head off to New Guinea.

for the popular Mildura Golf Week), played cricket with Maples and later Mildura East, helping them to several premierships, and was opening bat for the Mildura tea, in Melbourne Country Week cricket. Jim was also pretty handy with the gloves, often filling in as wicket-keeper, and after retiring from A grade competition became a highlyrespected umpire. Later still he took up lawn bowls, where he also excelled, playing in four Division One winning pennant teams. Although he never pursued shooting as a sport, he passed on his skills to Allen, who used his dad’s advice to great effect in winning the Victoria Police pistol championship of 1977. Allen said his father was also fond of fishing, and often took family and friends on day trips, and although not a big drinker or gambler, loved to spend time at the Workers on the RSL with friends, especially on Saturdays when he would sit for hours watching the races and having “a few bob each way.” Allen remembers his father as a gentle, loving and friendly man, and his standing in the community was reflected in the number of people who farewelled him at the recent service at St Margaret’s Anglican Church, arranged through Sunraysia Funerals.

WHEN Mildura’s Joan Lee fell ill with a number of potentially-serious medical problems, the advice from relatives and friends of husband Jim was to have her cared for in a nursing home. Jim Lee was 88 at the time, and wouldn’t have a bar of it. The couple’s only son Allen remembers his father’s words with great clarity… “we made a pact, for better or worse, and I’m sticking to it!” Allen, 63, said it was a typical reaction from a gentle, loving and caring husband and father, who the Mildura community will remember with great fondness following his death two weeks ago at the age of 96. “He nursed mum at home for just on four years, up to the day of her death, and now they are re-united at the Mildura Lawn Cemetery at Nichols Point,” he said. Many long-time Mildura residents would remember Jim Lee as ‘the face of Maples’ department store for many years, but there was more to the man than met the eye. A top junior cricket, football and later lawn bowls player, Jim was a former sidecar outfit racing champion and an expert marksmen, who was considered top sniper material during World War Two, and who ended up being one of the guards for top war-time generals, including high-ranking Japanese after their surrender. Those who mixed with the affable and easy-going Jim would also be a little surprised to learn his real name was Lester James Gim Hong Lee, named in honour of his Chinese ancestry. Born at Hawthorn in April, 1913, Jim was the son of Peking (now

Mildura Weekly - 20/11/09

Students receive reassuring message HAVING someone to talk to in troubling times is important for today’s youngsters, with the Kids Helpline one of the many services available to help meet that need. The helpline is an initiative of the ‘BoysTown’ organisation, which has spent the past 25 years helping disadvantaged children and young people deal with abuse, depression etc. BoysTown Indigenous Project Officer Derek Collins recently made a trip to Mildura to address Year 7 and 8 students from Irymple Secondary College, who were treated to a unique information session about the Helpline. Derek started by taking students through a variety of Indigenous games, introducing them to a culture and heritage somewhat different to their own, before sitting down for a 10 minute chat discussion about the service. “The main aim is to tell the kids what the Helpline is all about,” Derek said. “We want stu-

• GETTING THE MESSAGE ACROSS; Derek Collins (INSET) talks to students at Irymple Secondary College on Wednesday.

dents to know that should they need someone to talk to, that the service is there to use. “The best thing about the Helpline is that we have a variety of councillors, from all walks of life and backgrounds, so the kids feel more comfortable.

“Obviously we don’t expect them to go ring the helpline straight away, but it’s important for them to know that should they, their brothers, sisters or friends need someone to talk to that the service is there.” In terms of the Indigenous games Derek said he employed them as a way to get students participating in sports unique to more common games like AFL or cricket. “Most kids don’t like to sit and

listen to people talk for long periods, so the games are a way to get them active in a fun way, whilst teaching them about a different culture,” he said. Derek has been spreading the Helpline message for the past four years, part of BoyTown’s original project targeted at schools with large indigenous populations. Recently BoysTown decided that other schools, with their vast ar-

ray of culturally different students, could benefit from the message, hence Derek’s visit to Mildura. “Unfortunately my trip is only for a couple of days, but I plan on returning next year for a bigger tour, trying to visit more schools,” he said. “This trip is about meeting some of the local students and teachers, and forming relationships with those organisations.” Irymple Secondary College Assistant Principal Nina Pascoe said that the school had been excited to have Derek visit, and were looking forward to a return trip. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for our students to learn about services that are aimed at them,” she said. “With Derek’s short visit only our Year 7s and 8s will get the chance to participate. “We’ll definitely be organising a return trip so that the rest of our student body can have the chance to participate in activities, and get the opportunity to learn more about the Kids Helpline.” More information is available by visiting www.kidshelp.com.au, or by ringing the Helpline on 1800 55 1800.

AUSTRALIAN Cricket Legend Rodney Hogg will return to Sunraysia for this year’s Willowfest Australian Cricket Club Championships, after the controversial cricketer proved a big hit as championship ambassador last year. Hogg, whose stint in the United Kingdom as a commentator during the recent Ashes Series sparked controversy after he labelled the English team (who went on to win the series) the weakest side ever, will be guest speaker at the championship’s final presentation dinner, and visit grounds during play. During his playing days Hogg was counted as one of the best the country has produced, whilst also associated with some of the games more controversial moments. His first-class career was lit-

tered with cricketing incidents, including the infamous underarm bowling incident, Dennis Lillee’s aluminium bat, Rod Marsh’s 500-1 winning bet, and

www.milduraweekly.com

David Boon’s 43-can drinking effort. Since retiring, Hogg has continued to generate controversy with his comments on cricket as a television and newspaper journalist, and public speaker. Willowfest will officially get underway on Sunday, December 27, with the competition becoming a local tradition over the last 30 years, and organisers already predicting a large field to take part in 2009. Teams from all over the state will compete for more than $10,000 in prize money over four days, with all grades of players, including a women’s section, to be included. Local teams are encouraged to enter the event as early as possible, with more information available by visiting www.willowfest.com.au.

Mildura Weekly - 20/11/09

Our ‘Man of Steele’ goes Tiger-hunting!

TIGER-mania swept Australia with the arrival of golfing pro Tiger Woods last week, with Mildura Weekly sales executive Steele Denman finding himself caught up in some of the action. Steele, who in his spare time is a prominent golfer with more than 30 Pro-Am events to his name, made the trip to Kingston Heath Golf Course, joining thousands of golfmad Aussies aiming to catch a glimpse of arguably the greatest player the sport has seen. Steele succeeded, snapping this photograph (far right) with his camera phone during one of Tiger’s practice sessions. The Tiger-sighting was a dream come true for the 32-year-old, who missed Tiger’s last Australian visit (way back in 1998 for the President’s Cup) due to university exams. “I’ve been playing golf since I was 14, and Tiger’s been one of my role models for a long time,” Steele said. “There was no way I was going to miss an opportunity to see him in action.” Steele had to get in early for his glimpse of the champion, with close to 7000 spectators lining up from 6am. “It was incredible,” he said. “I was there for Tiger’s last practice day, and the first round of the tournament, and there were just people everywhere. “Tiger was also pretty hard

to miss, being the only golfer with six bodyguards around him at all times.” Among the crowd of onlookers were a number of national, and local, identities, with everyone seemingly under the Tiger spell. Steele said he managed to meet a number of ‘stars’ making their way around the greens, including Western Bulldogs superstar Brad Johnson, who he literally ran in to, AFL legend Robert ‘Dipper’ DiPierdomenico, tennis ace Ana Ivanovic, Channel Nine sports reporter Tony Jones, and a chance meeting with eventual second place finisher Greg Chalmers. From a local standpoint reigning Sunraysia Football Netball League Premiership coach Mark Alvey, Agg Tech owner and operator Rod Ford, and Doms Mildura owner Dean Forsyth were also in attendance. For Steele, the experience is one he’ll never forget, saying the large crowds and early starts had been worth it to see a golfing master live and up-close. “He just had a real presence about him,” he said. “And you felt that you were looking at the greatest. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do, and I’m glad that I can now look back and say I had the chance to see one of the best golfers ever play a round.”

• EYE ON THE TIGER: Mildura Weekly sales executive Steele Denman proves he’s as keen a golfer as his role model, Tiger Woods, who he photographed, ABOVE, during a practice session at the JBWere Australian Golf Masters.

Junior basketballers in homecoming success named MVPs, and the Under 12 and 16 boys named tournament champions. Mildura Basketball Association general manager Marea Dickeson said organisers were ecstatic with the performance of local sides, and with the tournament’s overall success. “We’re very happy with the results and with the way the tournament was run by the Junior Heat committee and tournament co-ordinator Deb Fawcett,” she said. “It was a very good weekend for Mildura in particular, with the majority of our sides claiming victories, and we couldn’t be happier.” The MBA also experienced off-court success, with reasonable crowds braving hot condi-

tions to watch matches. “We had some great crowds come through and watch, and it was great to see residents brave the hot conditions and support our juniors,” Marea said. Marea said that while the majority of the tournament could only be considered a success, the lack of outside teams at the event had been disappointing. “We didn’t get as many outside clubs as we would of liked,” she said. “And the talent in some of the divisions wasn’t as strong as we initially thought.” Junior Coaching and Development Program Director Alan Morris said that the weekend had been a great success

for local teams. “All of our players went really well,” he said. “Mildura has proven over the last couple of years that we’re one of the better country basketball centres in the state, and last weekend was no exception.” Alan said that all agegroups would take great momentum out of their performance, and were potentially in line for another strong year. “It’s a great warm-up for some of the later tournaments,” he said. “Our next tournament is in two weeks in Shepparton,

and all of our sides are going to be hard pressed to walk away with a win.” Alan said it had also been good to see the boys, who have struggled at the representative level in recent times, do well. “In the past the boys haven’t been as successful as the girls,” he said. “But there were definitely good signs on the weekend.” “If they can continue to work hard on their skills, then I have no doubt they’ll continue to do well.” Alan said that while all

age groups had enjoyed a great start to the season, the real test was yet to come. “Unfortunately this tournament didn’t feature any of the tougher teams like Bendigo, Shepparton or Ballarat,” he said. “The Shepparton tournament is going to be a great indication as to where our teams currently sit in the state. “Hopefully everyone continues to improve, and it would be great to see both the boys and girls enjoy a successful season, and continue to bring home tournament wins.”

Racing cyclists beat the heat THE tranquil and cool waters of the Murray River proved irresistible for competitors taking part in Sunday’s mountain bike race meeting at Coomealla…. the last meeting of the year for Coomealla Mountainless Bike Club. After conquering the rugged course in near-40 degree heat, most riders couldn’t wait to peel off some gear and jump into the river to cool off. Expert Class winner and race veteran Errol Schmidt said having the bike course run alongside the river near Coomealla Golf Course gave riders a chance to wash the dust off their legs, “and the sweat from the brow.” He said officials made sure that racing started at 9am, to ensure all riders were off the track before the maximum of 41.6 degrees was reached.

Riders contested all classes, from Expert elite through Sports A and B, to Social and Juniors, with a good mix of male and female competitors. The club’s newly-elected president, Grant Brooks, waved the riders on their way for the various three and four circuits of the circuit, which was shortened because of the anticipated heat. Errol said the first section of the course could best be described as technical, with riders rounding tight berms, over a man-made rock garden, tree root systems, undulating dry creek beds that included a log bridge, and along a levee bank to the finish line. Errol said he was happy to maintain his 2009 unbeaten run to take overall honours. He said the Sports A and B sections were fiercely contested,

with some riders on the verge of Elite competition. Jason Dawes was victorious in Sports A, with Paul Cox second and Leon Petersen third, while in Sports B, Phil Sullivan led the way, followed by Angus Barnden and Alex Drysdale. First junior across the line was Callum Barnden. Competitive riding will be shelved until the 2010 season starts on February 14, but riders of all ages will be able to engage in social rides every Sunday from 8am, starting at Gloria Jean’s at the river end of the Langtree Mall. Information on the Mountainless bike club is available from Grant Brooks on 0438041419, Ian Beruldsen on 0428253256, or through the club’s web site www.mountainlessbikeclub.com.au

more than 100 people enjoying the event. “I’ve always had a love of the environment, thanks largely to my farming background, which isn’t that different from what a lot of people have experienced here,” Wakelin said. “The night is about making local businesses and organisations aware of both the risks and benefits associated with climate change policies, and explaining how those changes will impact them directly.” NAB Senior Agribusiness Manager Leon Fennell (left)

said NAB was excited to have the footballer visit the region. “Shane is just the perfect fit for this seminar,” he said. “His personal passion and experience in this area is going to benefit everyone who attends.” Also pictured is Damien Darcy, NAB business banking manager. The seminar also promoted the arrival of volunteers taking part in the ‘Run for a Safe Climate’, with participants to spread the climate change message along a 6000 kilometre trek.

Kelly brothers on track SUNRAYSIA’S Rick Kelly will go into this weekend’s round of the V8 Supercar championship brimming with confidence after picking up his team’s first podium finishes at the previous round a fortnight ago. This weekend’s penultimate event of the season at Perth’s Barbagallo Raceway will provide a chance for the both Rick and Todd Kelly to continue their late charge up the championship standings. Rick is holding on to his position in the top 10, in seventh position, while Todd is toughing it out in 17th position. Rick said his third and second places at the previous round at Phillip Island have provided his team with a healthy injection of confidence. “For us as a team, we are all pretty excited and still

pretty confident in our ability coming out of a good event at Phillip Island, where we scored out first podium for Kelly Racing,” Rick said. “We’re pretty keen to repeat that and bring home some more silverware, particularly Todd because he had great pace at Phillip Island but he had some bad luck. “So we’re coming off a bit of a high from Phillip Island going into Perth.” Despite their recent success, the Kelly brothers are under no illusions they’ll have an easy weekend, given its the first time they’ve raced at the Barbagallo circuit as a new team. “Perth is a track that’s quite different to anywhere else we’ve been,” Rick said. “It’s obviously the first time we’re going there as a team so our main aim is to get a car set-up between all

four of our cars pretty quickly at the start of the weekend so we can tick that box as far as next year goes.” Todd meanwhile believes he’s making progress with the car this year and aims to build on the improvements the team has made to the race cars. “Rick and I are both extremely happy with how our Jack Daniel’s Commodores are going at the moment and it will be good to have the second event with my new engineer James Small,” Todd said. “We got along pretty well at Phillip Island but there are always a few teething problems, so I’m looking forward to having another weekend with James to get on top of that. “I can’t wait to get back in the car. We had real good pace at the last event, but I just had a bad run with luck.”

• STEPPING IT UP: Rick Kelly celebrates his first podium finish of the year for the Kelly Racing Team at Phillip Island two weeks ago.

Sporting clubs lead the way with friendly access SUNRAYSIA’S sporting clubs are leading the way when it comes to providing easy access for the region’s disabled residents, with three clubs recently acknowledged. Mildura West and Werrimul Sporting Club, Mildura Football and Netball Club and Mildura Settlers Cricket Club were officially named ‘Access Friendly’ by Independence Australia, the Transport Accident Commission (TAC), and the Department of Human Services. The ‘Access Friendly’ awards, which are now in their third year, has recognised more than 60 businesses

to date, with organisations needing to meet a set of accessibility components, including accessible entrances, accessible toilets and adequate turnaround space for wheelchairs, to be eligible. The award is especially pleasing for the Mildura West and Werrimul Sporting Clubs, who were forced to rebuild after an arsonist levelled the clubrooms in 2007. Mildura West Cricket Club president Bill Sauer (pictured below right) said the clubs were proud to provide facilities for all of its support base, and the community as a whole.

“As a sporting club we’re always looking to be inclusive,” he said. “So to be able to cater to a range of people is something that we’re very proud of. “From a club standpoint we want our facilitates to be accessible for everyone who wants to use them, making access to the building as easy as possible. “We’re very happy and proud to receive this award, and glad that we can have such a diverse range of residents be a part of our club.” Bill said that the club’s accessfriendly facilities would specifically

nities to showcase their support for people with a disability. “With pressure growing on businesses to be more inclusive and wheelchair friendly, these awards not only encourage inclusion, but educate businesses about meeting criteria,” he said. Other local businesses acknowledged included Tilleys and Office Works, with each business to display a window sticker acknowledging their commitment to wheelchair accessibility.

A LARGE field of entries, with the majority of riders locally based, has been accepted to ride in the first of the season’s meetings at Mildura’s Olympic Park Speedway tomorrow night. The card will feature solos and sidecars, including both modern and classic machines, as well as a strong field of quad bikes, the latest discipline to take to Olympic Park with some vengeance. A top line field of sidecars is engaged and if the shakedown meeting of two weeks ago was any indication, patrons could again be in for a fast and furious sidecar year as Gates and O’Loughlin, Bradshaw and Cohrs, Monson and Gates as well as Mayes and Knudsen gave their all in some fierce practice sessions a fortnight ago.

Sidecars Added to this group were a revitalised Holmes and Hancock team, O’Rourke with new passenger Mayes and the always improving Milner and O’Brien, providing a marvelous core group of riders to base any program around. Following an amazing Australian Championship, held in Mildura in March this year, Mildura Club officials are planning

Solo riders will be using the event to sharpen their local skills prior to riding in the 2010 Australian Title qualifying meeting to be held in Mildura on Wednesday December 30, just a few days before the Australian Championship series starts in earnest. Mildura will be the host track for the second round of the 2010

Title on Sunday January 3, when the top 16 riders in the country invade Mildura for some hot solo competition. Classic machines will also be racing this week, with Terry ‘Moose’ McGowan, father of Travis, being joined by stalwart, Gavin Sedgmen, father of Ryan and Justin, along with newcomer Malcolm Bennett, from Merbein and former local Graham Bysouth, who along with the others, has dusted off his machine and will make the journey to Olympic Park to renew hostilities in this ‘only Merbein lads’ event. Merbein has always been a key recruitment area for motorcycle competitors, particularly in speedway and it would not be the first time that the Olympic Park tapes have been braced by a foursome from Merbein.

The newest and now strengthening division has powerful local content, with riders still experimenting with machine setup, making this class an exciting one for Olympic Park patrons. Some tough contests have been seen during the winter series competition with Ronnie Clark, Troy Mills and Michael Hudak amongst the best contenders. Lachie Mannes, Gavin Rundell and Ivan Robertson will be striving

to accumulate good points during the night, as season expectations are high. Quad racing is taking speedway by storm throughout the country, with many tracks, doing similar to Mildura and featuring this class regularly, such is the spectator value of the ‘boys on four wheels’. Olympic Park spectator gates will open at 5pm, with practice set to begin at 5.30pm. A junior program will follow at 6.30pm, with senior racing to commence at 7.30pm sharp. Patrons will note the huge amount of work which has been carried out at the venue during the off season, with the construction of a new spectator fence, this time, with a generous three metre neutral zone between the race fence and the spectator boundary. Olympic Park regulars will note the relocation of the race control tower, both higher up and further back from the race track. These modifications are part of a massive upgrade of the famous Mildura facility, made possible by the signing of a long term lease on the venue, for the first time in the Club’s 62-year history at the site. Club officials are delighted that the club can now undertake some important infrastructure improvements to benefit fans of speedway in Mildura as well as improving track conditions and particularly safety for riders. Major track work has been completed which will enhance racing at Olympic Park during the off season. Patrons are reminded that Olympic Park has a full catering service and that there must be No BYO by law.

Classics Old sidecars too, will be out, with the smooth Roly Paver/Rex Byrne combination taking on Dale Milner and Nick O’Brien, who will be riding one of the Bryan Gathercole collection machines. Facing off against this pair will be Adelaide’s Pieter ‘Dutchy’ Hoogland with Aaron Silvy in the chair. A small but enthusiastic group will face each three lap event with expectation.

The two fight fans, one in Mildura and the other in Griffith, worked quietly behind the scenes to secure an autographed photograph of the legendary American boxer Roy Jones Jnr…then they presented it to Mildura Olympian Kevin Hogarth, leaving him…

As pleased as punch! MILDURA Olympic boxing bronze medallist Kevin Hogarth was surprised and delighted when the photograph arrived in the mail, with the words; “To Kev, from one athlete to another.” It was from none other than the legendary American boxer Roy Jones Jnr, in Griffith a few weeks ago for a promotional night in the lead-up to his world cruiserweight title fight with Perth’s Danny Green in Sydney on Wednesday, December 2. Kevin, who won his bronze at the 1956 Melbourne Olympics, said he had followed the career of Jones, and rated the four-time world champion as arguably the greatest boxer the world has seen. Jones, 40, will be fighting for his fifth world championship belt (in different weight divisions) when he meets the 36-year-old Green at Acer Arena in Sydney, and Kevin is hosting a special night for fight fans around the giant screen at the Workers that night. Jones has never fought as a professional outside the United States, and Kevin is expecting a torrid fight

that might well go the distance. The man who helped organise Jones’ autograph for Kevin, Griffith sales representative Joe Nardi, said Jones had flown from the United States to attend the Griffith promotional fund-raising night, and about 1000 people (at $200 a head) were there to greet him. “He was great,” Joe said from Griffith this week. “He got into the ring after each of the eight fights on the card, said a few words and presented trophies to the winning boxers. “Afterwards he spent time chatting to fight fans, signing autographs and having his picture taken with promoters, sponsors, fighters and fans.” Kevin said the autographed photograph from Jones was something he would always treasure, and he was indebted to Mildura company director Brad Barrack of Castle Chemicals who started the ball rolling. “Brad and I were watching Workers Gol Gol cricket training together a few weeks ago and he mentioned

that he had been invited to the Griffith fight night by Joe, who is one of his sales reps,” Kevin said. “Brad couldn’t go, but he organised with Joe to have the picture taken, and then arranged for Jones’ signature. It was a great surprise.” The picture shows Nardi in the ring with Jones, flanking young koori boxer Nigel Goolagong, a relative of Aussie tennis great Yvonne Goolagong-Cawley. Nigel had just been congratulated by Jones on winning his bout. Nardi said Danny Green was also at the Griffith fight night, and traded jibes with Jones during the night. Baited by Green, Jones merely said; “When we meet on December 2, one of us is going to get knocked out.” He didn’t elaborate. The impending fight is seen in world boxing circles as the biggest match-up in Australia since Jack Johnson came to the country in 1908 to fight Tommy Burns in Sydney for the world heavyweight title. Jones has said he is looking forward to his first professional fight Down Under. In his latest interview he said he was ringside when Green fought Anthony Mundine in their first fight in Sydney. “I know how popular he is, both as a fighter and a role model,” Jones said. Both Jones and Green won their most recent bouts, with Green fighting on the same card as Jones in Biloxi, Mississippi, in August, to win the IBO cruiserweight title. Green will put that belt on the line for the December 2 fight, and if Jones takes it off him, it will mean five titles in five weight divisions for the American. Jones says he is still motivated, and gives himself two more years in the ring. In a career spanning more than two decades he has had 54 wins, and just five losses. Green’s record is 27/3, with 24 knockouts. Jones has been training in the camp of Green’s major adversary in Australia, Anthony Mundine, who out-pointed Green in a 2006 fight that drew over 35,000 fans in Sydney. Green, a former WBA lightheavyweight and WBC interim super middleweight champion, didn’t under-estimate the challenge facing him in Sydney. “I have the greatest respect for one of the best 15 fighters of all time in any era, but I believe I can knock him out,” he said. Hogarth, a director at the Working Man’s Club, said yesterday he is looking forward to welcoming Mildura fight fans to the big screen live telecast at the Workers from around 7pm on December 2.

Bowls competition this weekend THE Sunraysia Bowls Association will host a State Pairs competition this Sunday at the Workers Bowling Club. Players are asked to arrive at 9.30am for a 10.00am start, and lunch to be available on the day. The Sunraysia Bowls Association will also host

the State Fours event on Monday, November 23, at the Irymple Bowls Club from 6.30pm. This event was originally scheduled for last weekend but had to be postponed in the wake of hot conditions which saw temperatures rise to more than 40 degrees on both days.

• BRING IT ON: Mildura’s Olympic boxing bronze medallist Kevin Hogarth (TOP) says he can’t wait for the Danny Green-Roy Jones jnr boxing clash, and he will host the live broadcast on the big screen at the Workers on December 2. The fight is being widely promoted as probably the biggest match-up in Australia for 100 years. That’s Green (LEFT) and Jones in action mode during training sessions leading up the Sydney fight.

• A BIG HIT: Cash appeared almost out of nowhere, and certainly flowed freely, during a charity golf day that raised a whopping $20,000 for Chances for Children at Mildura Golf Club yesterday. Celebrating the success of the day with some iced water in the fierce heat were sponsors Bruno Moras from Nangiloc-Colignan Farms, Russell Witcombe from Mildura Fruit Company, and Ken Wakefield from Wakefield Transport.
