Our message to the 103-year-old Paddle Steamer Ruby...

You’re a gem HE can’t help it. Captain Leon Wagner, the man behind the wheel of Wentworth’s iconic paddle steamer, the Ruby, is licking his lips with anticipation now that the grand old dame of the rivers has jumped the final hurdles to her becoming a fully-fledged commercial cruise vessel. It has taken 15 long years to restore the Ruby to her past glory, but it is done and it’s time, the Captain says, to start enjoying her many charms. Read the latest chapter in this historic riverboat’s life on Page 9 today.

At the session last week, the priest asked Giuseppe, who said he was approaching his 50th wedding anniversary, to take a few minutes and share some insight into how he had managed to stay married to the same woman all these years. Giuseppe replied to the assembled husbands; “Wella, I’va tried to treat her nicea, spenda da money on her, but besta of all is, I tooka her to Italy for the 25th anniversary!” The priest responded, “Giuseppe, you are an amazing inspiration to all the husbands here!

their meanings. The teacher asked Mr Rudd if he would like to lead the discussion on the word ‘tragedy’. So our illustrious leader asked the class for an example of a ‘tragedy’. A little boy stood up and offered: “If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs over him and kills him, that would be a ‘tragedy’. ‘No, said the PM “That would be an accident.” A little girl raised her hand: “If a school bus carrying fifty children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy’.” “I’m afraid not,” explained Mr Rudd, “That’s what we would call great loss’.” The room went silent. No other children volunteered. Rudd

searched the room. “Isn’t there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?” Finally, at the back of the room, little Johnny raised his hand. In a quiet voice he said: “If a plane carrying you and Mrs Rudd was struck by a ‘friendly fire’ missile and blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy.” “Fantastic” exclaimed Rudd. ‘“That’s right. And can you tell me why that would be tragedy?” “Well,” says little Johnny, “It has to be a tragedy, because it certainly wouldn’t be a great loss, and it probably wouldn’t be an accident either!”

id you know this? It was necessary to keep a good supply of cannon balls near the cannon on old war ships. But how to prevent them from rolling about the deck was the problem. The storage method devised was to stack them as a square based pyramid, with one ball on top, resting on four, resting on nine, which rested on sixteen. Thus, a supply of 30 cannon balls could be stacked in a small area right next to the cannon. There was only one problem -- how to prevent the bottom layer from sliding/rolling from under the others. The solution was a metal plate with 16 round indentations, called, for reasons unknown, a Monkey. But if this plate were made of iron, the iron balls would quickly rust to it. The solution to the rusting problem was to make them of brass – hence Brass Monkeys. Few landlubbers realise that brass contracts much more and much faster than iron when chilled. Consequently, when the temperature dropped

Council cops a broadside as disgruntled City Traders chairman vows...

I’ll not stand for another term

But I’m the first one who has gone out and said it publicly.” Mr Clark said Sunraysia’s industry leaders had expressed similar sentiments, including representatives from the district’s tourism and development sectors. “The classic case is the riverfront development including the casino. We’re still debating this and Council keeps hiding behind everything,” Mr Clark said. “At the current rate, it’s going

to be a minimum of five years off. If private enterprise was making the decisions we’d be about to start building.” Mr Clark said there were countless decisions that needed to be made in the central business district but no-one wanted to make them. “Take car parking at the moment,” he said. “No-one is prepared to make the tough decisions. They’re hiding behind the fact that we can’t buy land because it’s occupied by other tenants. “Get over that and make a decision which is for the betterment of the community.” Mr Clark said developers outside of Mildura were now aware of these issues. “I had a discussion with a major developer on Monday. He said it was very difficult to develop

land in Mildura, even though he loves the area. He said it’s actually easier to develop outside Mildura. “Now we can’t allow this to continue. I’ve just had a meeting with someone from the tourism industry and they said exactly the same thing. “The Council’s inability to make decisions and be accountable is awesome. They hide behind their rules and regulations and won’t step forward with a proper decision.” Mr Clark said the current council structure was deterring people who would be willing to make a difference from standing for council. “We have the council that we deserve at the moment,” he said. “Industry leaders and other people are not prepared to run for council because of the inability of councillors to make a decision. “Somebody has to stop hiding behind the coat tails of bureaucracy and stand up for what they believe in.” Mr Clark says he’ll remain in the chairman’s role until the new incorporated board is voted in, which is in about 10 days. Mildura Rural City Council was contacted in relation to this story, but did not respond.

Pooncarie Field Day seeks youth ambassador for 2011 THE Pooncarie Field Day’s organising committee is looking for a Youth Ambassador to help promote next year’s event. The Field Day Committee intends to search for a Youth Ambassador in the next two months whom they hope will not only promote Pooncarie’s Field Day, but also the rural lifestyle and industries in the south western division of NSW to the upcoming generation.

“Ideally, we are looking for a local lass or lad between 15 and 20, resident in the south western division, who sees their future here and who wants to encourage other young people to also join that future,” Field Day president, Angus Whyte, said. Nominations can be made by individuals, family, friends, organisations and businesses and lodged with the Field Day Committee by August 31 next. A represen-

tative is expected to be chosen and announced in September. Contact Field Day Secretary Rachel Strachan (03 5027 9209) for nomination forms and further details. Meanwhile, Mr Whyte said preparations were already under way for next year and he was delighted to welcome back major sponsors BR&C Agents and Deacon Property and Livestock.

MILDURA City Traders chairman Jon Clark has unleashed a scathing attack on Mildura Rural City Council as he announced he won’t stand for another term. Mr Clark has held the chairman position for the past five years but says he’s “fed up with Council’s inability to make decisions.” Council has come under fire in recent weeks over delays to the Langtree Mall re-development, and Mr Clark’s resignation adds yet more fuel to the fire. Last week the disgruntled chairman defended Council’s handling of the mall re-development, although he was critical of its lack of communication, labelling it “terribly poor.” It appears that lack of communication has now reached boiling point. Mr Clark says development in the wider community, not just the mall, is suffering at the hands of Council. “At the moment we have a council that is amazingly good at hiding behind rules and regulations,” he said. “It’s stifling any development that occurs within this town. “And I’m not the only person

Changing times for ADFA THE biggest issues facing Australian dried grape growers will be thrashed out at Monday’s Australian Dried Fruits Association (ADFA) Annual Conference in Mildura. The conference will incorporate two meetings – the Annual General Meeting on Monday morning , which is open to financial members only, and the grower’s forum, which will feature a host of high-profile speakers. ADFA general manager Phil Chidgzey said some of the biggest issues facing the industry will be up for discussion, including the controversial Murray Darling Basin Authority sustainable diversion limits, which could threaten growers’ water entitlements. Other issues include the Victorian Government’s new water

policies, including the Spillable Water Account. National Farmers Federation president David Crombie will be key speaker at the conference and discuss water reform in the Murray Darling Basin. Monday’s conference could also see a new-look ADFA, with a motion on the agenda to change the organisation’s name. Growers at the annual general meeting will be asked to vote on changing the organisation’s name to Dried Fruits Australia, in line with its changing nature, which has seen a greater emphasis on member involvement and improving corporate image. The annual conference will be held at Mildura Golf Club on Monday. The AGM will get underway at 10am, while the grower forum will start at 1.30pm.

Citrus exporter rebate welcomed CITRUS Australia Ltd, the national peak industry body representing citrus growers, has welcomed an announcement by Federal Minister for Agriculture, Tony Burke, providing a one-off assistance payment to horticultural exporters.   Late last year Citrus Australia was quick to launch the campaign that sought special consideration for citrus exporters and growers who paid a temporary but significant higher AQIS fee

during peak citrus export season in July to September 2009.   “We estimated the citrus industry alone overpaid AQIS about half a million dollars,” Citrus Australia Ltd CEO Judith Damiani said. “The announcement is great news for Citrus Australia members, as well, whose support for us enables on-going lobbying and advice to government on export market access and quarantine issues,” she said.

School secures College Lease funding rights THE Nangiloc-Colignan Primary School has been added to the list of Sunraysia’s Victorian schools to benefit from the Mildura College Lands Act. It has been a long time coming, and it is a breakthrough that Member for Mildura, Peter Crisp, describes as “fitting and fair”. Speaking recently in the Parliament on the Education and Training Reform Further Amendment Bill 2010, Mr Crisp used the opportunity push for an amendment to the Act that would see Nangiloc-Colignan included on the beneficiary list. His amendment won the support of the Education Minister, and was subsequently passed by the Lower House. “I explained that there was one primary school in the horticultural region excluded from benefiting and one which has lobbied for years to have the definition changed to remove the discrimination based on an out-of-date definition of the irrigated areas,” Mr Crisp said. “Since I was elected, a number of parents, who go all the way back to the early 1990s, have been anxious to remind me that this is a live issue and I am keen to remind the Parliament that the inclusion of the Nangiloc Colignan and District Primary School will correct a minor anomaly at little cost and should not create a precedent,” Mr Crisp told Parliament. “I asked members of the Government to support the amendment as it was a chance to correct an injustice with little impact on anyone. “The trust, which has an income of around $1.25 million per annum (or $90 per student) is an incredibly valuable legacy, and I am very pleased to say that now that legacy will benefit another district primary school.”

MILDURA has followed the lead of other communities along the upper and lower reaches of the Murray River with the official opening yesterday of short-term mooring sites for houseboats near Mildura Wharf. The long-overdue mooring sites, with ample room for up to 11 boats, include a 110-metre deck for pedestrian access. They are perfectly-sited, allowing houseboat holidaymakers easy access to a toilet block, the Ornamental Lakes, Nowingi Place, with a short stroll to City Heart shops and restaurants. The mooring sites have wheelchair access. Councillor responsible for tourism, Cr Mark Eckel, said completion of the $365,500 project opened the door for Mildura to attract even more river-going holidaymakers. “The river has always been a drawcard for tourism in our region, and making it more accessible is one way we can maxmise its value as a brilliant natural asset and lure for visitors,” Cr Eckel said. “Figures from the Mildura Wentworth Houseboat Association show that 13,000 people visited our region and used houseboats in the past twelve months.The new moorings will help encourage many of those visitors to stop and enjoy our region.” The short-term nature of the moorings, with a maximum stay of 24 hours per boat, is expected to increase

The Melbourne-based Clive Peeters retail chain was started by business partners Clive Savage and Peter Peeters. Now run by self-confessed workaholic Greg Smith, a former Robinvale boy, it was recently rocked by a $20 million fraud, and this week by the closing of six of its 44 stores, including Mildura. But as the Mildura Weekly’s ALAN ERSKINE reports...

As one door closes... IT was a dream that started in 1993, when Mildura-born Greg Smith used his accounting experience to do his sums - and buy - the then fledgling Melbourne-based electrical appliance retailer Clive Peeters. Starting with that one store in suburban Ringwood, Greg, now 61, embarked on an ambitious growth program, adding stores in Melbourne and selected major regional growth centres in Victoria and other states, with the aim of having as many as 80 stores nationally by 2013. Rapid and successful expansion programs were nothing new to Greg, who spent the first 21 years of his life in Robinvale, and who cut his teeth in the accounting world working for the respected chartered accountancy firm Hancock, Woodward and Hollick. When he made the move to Melbourne, one of his major clients was Billy Guyatts. After 10 years of service he was invited to join Billy Guyatts as finance director, and a year later he became managing director. That was in 1984, and in the space of four years he took the retail specialist from three stores to 23, and listed it on the main board of the Stock Exchange. Greg spent five years with Billy Guyatts, and in his words, it whet his appetite for the electrical appliance retail industry, which by then was in his blood. That’s when he swooped on Clive Peeters, with the aim of repeating his Billy Guyatts success. He was pretty well on track too, until last year, when it was discovered that a female payroll officer had systematically siphoned off almost $20 million for a spending spree on houses and property in Queensland, Tasmania and Victoria, including Mildura. The woman, named as Sonya Causer, is said to have co-operated with Clive Peeters in transferring ownership of the properties to the company, which has been re-selling them to recoup the funds.

Causer, who was on a wage of around $125,000 a year, is facing around 60 charges in relation to the embezzlement. Sadly, the misappropriation spun the previously successful business off its axis, and the road to recovery came too late for the Mildura Clive Peeters Mildura store, which has been open for more than four years. The store closed its doors to customers on Tuesday this week, with the loss of 15 jobs. A total of 75 jobs were lost with the closure of

It is believed there are at least five potential buyers, including Harvey Norman, looking at the remaining 38 Clive Peeters Stores, which this week were still trading as usual... five other stores, in Warrnambool Victoria, Townsville and Ipswich in Queensland, and Canning Vale and Bunbury in West Australia. Clive Peeters has an overall staff of around 1200. National buying manager for Clive Peeters, Noel Smith, who helped set up the Mildura store four years ago, arrived in Mildura last week to assist store manager Geoffrey Smith wind up the business over the next two weeks. It is believed there are at least five potential buyers, including Harvey Norman, looking at the remaining 38 Clive Peeters Stores, which this week were still trading as usual. Administrators have said supply arrangements with Clive Peeters’ major suppliers, including Panosonic and Electrolux, had been confirmed, and all gift certificates would be honoured at face value up to the end of June. In an interview two years

after the Mildura store opened, Greg Smith told of fond memories growing up in Robinvale, especially with sporting interests taking in cricket, football and basketball. He was working as a chartered accountant with Hancock, Woodward and Hollick when he was given the opportunity to transfer to an associated firm in Melbourne in 1970. The following year he joined a suburban accounting firm as a partner, and stayed in that role for the next nine years. It was during these days that he helped do the books for Billy Guyatts, eventually leading to him joining the board, and then heading the company during a prolific growth period. It was also reported that he became managing director for the now-defunct Vox retail group, taking its sales from $150 million a year to a staggering $900 million. His purchase of Clive Peeters was done with the original aim of a small investment, but Greg admitted in interviews that he had a vision of developing a ‘Superstore’ strategy, giving people better value and service than bigger competitors. After doubling the size of the Ringwood store, he established similar outlets around Melbourne suburbs, and went interstate in 2001. The Mildura Weekly spoke briefly to Greg on Wednesday, and he admitted he couldn’t hide the disappointment at the damage the misappropriation had caused to the business. Regrettably, this had led to the recent store closures, and he was unsure of the future of the company until the sale process was finalised. Greg passed on his personal thanks to the management and staff of the Mildura store for their efforts and loyalty, and also to the store’s customers over the past four years.

Show us your old photos THE Wentworth Show Society has hit upon a novel way to mark this year’s milestone 125th event. The society will run a photographic competition with a difference, as show society secretary, Susan McKenzie, explained. “The competition is for the ‘Oldest Dated Photo’. The photo must contain some reference to establish when it was taken,” Susan said. “That may include the photo of a trophy with a date on it, for example, or a photo of a date of any aspect of the Wentworth Show like a sign advertising the event.” Photos should be forwarded to P.O. Box 76, Wentworth NSW 2648 or hand delivered to Susan. The photo must have the name and address of entrant on the back. The winner will receive a book of vouchers valued at $25. Competition closes Thursday, August 26 at 4pm. All photos entered will be displayed, along with other items, at the planned Memorabilia Display marking the show’s 125th year. Photos will be returned on request.

It was a colourful chapter in Australian history. The riverboat era will never be forgotten, thanks to the preservation of some of the old paddlewheelers, and the building of new ones. Some of the history is worth recording in a case of…

Boats, and gold... the rush is on IT was 1851, the gold rush was on in various parts of Australia, explorers were opening up vast tracts of the continent, the overlanders were making long treks to take their sheep and cattle to Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne markets – and the paddle steamer era was about to begin. It was to be the start of one of the most colourful chapters in Australia’s rich history, and Mildura and its closest fellow ports, including Pooncarie on the Darling River, were to cement a reputation as the focal points of important river trade. The impetus came from South Australia. The then State Governor Sir Henry Fox Young was concerned that the fledgling colony was struggling. He decided to use his influence to secure a stake in the inland trade, and set aside 4000 pounds as a bonus for the first two boat owners to navigate the Murray River from its mouth to the Darling junction, in iron-clad steamers of not less than 40 horsepower, and drawing not more than 61 centimetres of water when laden. Enter the main players. English-born William Richard Randell had arrived in South Australia as a 13-yearold with his family in October, 1837, only 10 months after the colony was founded. Whilst helping his father, young William gained a

good knowledge of the lands around the lower end of the Murray River. Exposure to his father’s flour mill at Gumeracha in the Adelaide Hills gave him first-hand experience of the enormous power of steam… and he vowed to become the

brothers, he started building a steamboat, even though none of them had ever seen one before. The hull, 16 metres in length, was constructed from red gum timbers cut at Gumeracha and carted by bullock wagon across the hills to the construction site on the

the first trading voyage, which set out on March 25. It was a drought year, and the Mary Ann was attempting its voyage in the middle of the low-water season. After covering 125 miles, they had to give because of the snags, reefs and sand bars,

first man to put a steamboat on the river. It was a dream he nursed for years, Until 1851, when gold was discovered in NSW, and the Australian society fell into turmoil. Randell talked things over with his younger brothers, and excited by the stories of the fortunes to be made by taking supplies to the goldfields, he decided it was time for action. With the help of his

River Murray, not far from the present township of Mannum. Their boat was named the Mary Ann after their mother, and was powered by what was later described as “a fearsome wood-burning engine of 8hp,” built by a German engineer in Adelaide. Reports of the day recorded that during the boiler’s first test, as the pressure built, the tension was such that William and his helpers fled

reinforce the weaker sections, and wrapping bullock chains around the boiler and tightening them to prevent expansion. The paddle steamer had begun. Randell took the Mary Ann for a trial run on February 19, 1853, and achieved his ambition to be the first man to put a steamboat on the river. Twenty-one tons of cargo were then carted across the hills from Gumeracha for

and turned back. A second attempt, starting August 15, was more successful, and supplies were carried to a number of settlers along the river. The second steamboat captain on the river was Captain Francis Cadell, who had spent many years at sea, and had studied river navigation in the United States. Hearing of the prize offered by the SA Government, he did an exploratory trip down the Mur-

ray from Swan Hill in a small boat to satisfy himself that the river would be navigable by a larger vessel. Cadell then commissioned a Sydney shipyard to build an 80-ton vessel, 32 metres in length, and powered by two engines, each of 20 horsepower. When completed, the vessel was sailed around from Sydney, and Cadell brought her in through the Murray mouth. At the same time he constructed a barge, the Eureka, at Goolwa, designed to carry 100 tons of cargo. Cadell had a natural flair for public relations. He named his vessel the Lady Augusta, after the wife of the South Australian Governor, and on her maiden river voyage invited a number of distinguished guests along for the ride. These included the Governor and his wife, Sir Henry and Lady Augusta Young, and journalist James Allen, thus ensuring that the venture was given the greatest publicity. Members of the Legislative Council were also invited. Cadell’s voyage began at Goolwa on August 25, 1853. Not far past the Murrumbidgee junction, the Lady Augusta passed the Mary Ann. During the next few days the streamers travelled more or less neck-and-neck, first one in the lead, then the other.

Ruby gets thumbs up in time for big rally IT’S full steam ahead for Wentworth’s iconic Paddle Steamer Ruby. The grand old dame of the rivers overcame the final hurdles to her becoming a fully functioning commercial vessel last week when she passed a series of tough NSW Maritime tests on her boiler and a number of steaming trials… and she did it with flying colours. “We expect the Ruby to begin cruising commercially very soon with a series of short day cruises planned for the upcoming Junction Rally next month,” a thrilled Captain Leon Wagner said. It has taken 15 long years to bring the Ruby back to life – from a decaying hulk stranded on land in Wentworth’s Fotherby Park to a condition that rivals that of the vessel in her heyday. “It has been a long, hard and sometimes discouraging project,” a frank Captain Wagner said. Captain Wagner has lead the restoration push since day one, saying he was “immensely proud of the sustained effort the restoration volunteer

team has put into the project during that time.” Captain Wagner described passing last week’s hydrostatic test – verifying that the Ruby’s boiler does not leak, or have any manufacturing flaws – was a huge relief. “In short, the boiler is filled with water and then subjected to 115 percent of its normal operating pressure for 15 minutes,” he said. “It passed, and we are very happy… it was also good to get the steaming trials under our belt without incident. We’re good to go now.”

Captain Wagner was in the wheelhouse and at the helm for the steaming tests late last week and said: “The Ruby performed beautifully… and there was no doubt that we had passed the last of these critical tests, but I was overwhelmed when the NSW Maritime Surveyor confirmed our achievement.” “The steaming test confirms that the vessel performs properly, and all of her machinery and equipment is up to the required standard.” Unlike many heritage and historic vessels elsewhere that

have been exempted from meeting all of the standards for modern commercial vessels, the P.S. Ruby has passed the full set of current standards. “The hydrostatic boiler test has been a sticking point for the past 12 months,” Captain Wagner said. “We have sought expert opinions and have worked with NSW Maritime to ensure Ruby would meet the highest standards… and now she has. It’s a great feeling.” Wentworth Shire Mayor, Cr Margaret Thomson, was one of the first to congratulate Captain Wagner, the army of restoration volunteers, as well as the hard-working P.S. Ruby Board of Management on their achievement. “The restoration of the P.S. Ruby has taken a decade and a half, and the commitment of the volunteers to see this project through is close to a miracle!” Mayor Thomson said. She was also keen to see that the P.S.

An initiative of The Vintage Machinery Society of Sunraysia and the Rivers and Riverboat Historical and Preservation Society, the Junction Rally is held every three years in the picturesque park at the junction of the mighty Murray and Darling Rivers. Fittingly, this year the rally spotlight will be on ‘marinetype engines’, with or without a boat, according to organisers. Other points of interest will include a wide array of vintage steam and stationary engines, a collection of river craft including steam boats, paddle boats, classic riverboats and barges, as well as vintage tractors, cars and bikes. “The rally is one of our town’s most popular events,” Mayor Thomson said. “And having the Ruby there this year under her own steam, and able to take passengers, can only add interest to what is already an outstanding, and much-loved event.” – GRANT MAYNARD

nancial, and in-kind supporters, were not forgotten. As well as the time and dedication of those working directly on the boat, there were a lot of people, organisations and companies the Mayor said had played a hand in getting her back on the river… some of them donating a lot of money and/or materials to keep the project going. “In that way, the resurrection of the Ruby has been a true community project,” the Mayor said. The future will see Ruby commence commercial cruising operations in coming months with a full schedule of day, overnight and youth leadership cruises planned during the next year, however its first commercial cruises will be undertaken during the upcoming Junction Rally, an event the steamer is closely tied to and has appeared at in the past, but never under her own steam. That will change this year as the rally fires up in Wentworth on the weekend of July

Taking up the fight against skin cancer

SUNRAYSIA is stepping up the fight against skin cancer with a comprehensive new screening service in Mildura. MoleMap is a screening and diagnosis service based at the Mildura Private Hospital which offers a full-body screening service, from head to toe, staffed by trained melanographers. Digital images are taken of the majority of a patient’s moles, particularly suspicious looking moles. These images are then analysed and a recommendation provided to the pa-

tient, which could mean seeing their GP for further investigation. Patients’ images are then kept on file and can be compared against newer images when they’re taken at a later date, providing an accurate means of determining if there have been any changes. One Sunraysia lady who can vouch for the service is Marilyn Warn. Marilyn said that due to the large number of moles on her body, it has been difficult for her to pin-point suspicious cases up until

now. “Because I’ve got so many, and even if my husband checks to see if they’re changing, we don’t know because I’ve got so many,” she said. Before going to Molemap, Marilyn had already had several moles removed, but up until now she’d had to pinpoint them and bring them to the attention of her doctor, or her doctor may have noticed them during a check-up. She said MoleMap’s full body screening has provid-

ed a much more thorough means of detecting problems. Her first visit to MoleMap resulted in the detection of three suspicious moles - moles she said she would not have thought to bring to her doctor’s attention. “Fortunately they were benign, but only because we caught them in time,” Marilyn said. “But one of them in particular I would not have earmarked as it was so small and normal looking.” MoleMap general man-

ager for regional Victoria, Diane Hinchcliffe, said there were many misconceptions about skin cancer, including the fact that it was just as important to be vigilant over the winter months. “Unfortunately people forget about skin cancers over this time, but they are not a seasonal thing. They can develop any time of the year,” Ms Hinchcliffe said. MoleMap will operate at the Mildura Private Hospital for three days next month, between Monday June 28 and Wednesday

•  Marilyn Warn can rest easy knowing she’s on top of the fight against skin cancer.

Frank seeks stamps still MILDURA’S ‘stamp man’ – Frank McCormick – is diligently “creeping up” on his $20,000 goal for charity. Well-known in the newsagency game for more than 50 years, Frank’s passion since retiring in 1995 has been stamp collecting for the benefit of local charities and community groups. Regular readers may recall that Frank, LEFT, originally hailed from Talbot just outside of Maryborough, near Ballarat, and his first foray into the world of stamp collecting came along when, as a young boy, his love for ETA peanut butter enabled him to redeem the jar labels for postage stamps. Moving to Mildura in 1952, the McCormick family took ownership of a lo-

cal newsagency during the 1960s, and Frank remained a pillar of the business until his retirement. Looking to remain active, Frank established the ‘Stamps for Charity’ collection service 14 years ago, and has since raised many thousands of dollars in valuable funds for local community groups and charities ever since. Beneficiaries include the Royal Flying Doctor Service, St Vincent de Paul, The Salvation Army

and Mallee Family Care. Frank, now into his 80s, would love to hit the magical $20,000 mark before what he refers to as his “second retirement”. He is keen to collect many more stamps in order to keep things ticking over. Readers who have unwanted stamp collections, local or foreign, pre-decimal, past or present issue, are invited to pass them on to Frank to aid his charitable work.

He said this week he is within sight of his target, and the closer he gets the more determined he is to get there. And the surprises keep coming as he closes in on his goal. Stamps come from everywhere, from people who have heard of his work and want to support a worthy cause. Often he is given no clue to their origin, like the 188 stamps that arrived recently attached to a piece of calico-like cloth that once surrounded a parcel originating in India, LEFT. The package, from Madras, was addressed to a Father Robinson, care of the Society of Saint Pius, and had contained, according to the Customs declaration that was also attached, number of hand-loom made silk stoles. The design on the most numerous of the stamps attached is interesting too, featuring a very Australianlooking windmill and what looks like a stylised head of wheat. •  Continued Page 14

The Lady Augusta arrived in Swan Hill on September, 17, three weeks and two days after leaving Goolwa, and just a few hours ahead of the Mary Ann. Both captains and their crews stayed there the next day, a Sunday, and then set off again. The Mary Ann soon took the lead and led the way past what was to be Captain Cadell’s highest point on the voyage, Gannawarra. From there Randell went on to Maiden’s Punt, later to become Moama (the settlement across the river from the future port of Echuca). Randell had steamed no fewer than 1068 miles from Goolwa. Neither the Mary Ann nor the Lady Augusta met the conditions set down for the government bonus, but their owners were still rewarded.

With those pioneering voyages, just 17 years after the foundation of South Australia, the stage was set for a riverboat boom... The two skippers both decided to set up riverboat operations, Cadell forming the River Murray Navigation Company, and Randell the Murray River Company. With those pioneering voyages, just 17 years after the foundation of South Australia, the stage was set for a riverboat boom, and scores of

boats were soon built and in action along almost the entire lengths of the Murray and Darling river systems. It was heavy going in the drought years, but in times of high rainfall and high rivers, a new path had been opened for rapid development along the river system. Passengers, building materials and a wide range of cargo could be carried rapidly from river ports, even direct from Port Adelaide, mainly without any mishaps. The freight was cheaper than that of the overland bullock teams, transportation was quicker, and it was a Godsend for station owners in NSW, Victoria and SA, with a new avenue to get their precious wool to market. • Sources: State Library of SA, Australian Archives, Wikipedia, John Clarke

Men’s Shed to launch a big funding appeal WITH about $93,000 in the coffers, Mildura’s Men’s Shed is well on the way to its target of $130,000 to build a permanent home. The recent recipient of a $50,000 State Government grant, and in receipt of other funding support including $25,000 from Mildura Rural City Council (MRCC) and $10,000 from donations and previous fundraising efforts, the group is set to launch a dedicated funding appeal to make up the shortfall. Invitations are now going out to businesses and individuals to attend the launch of the appeal at the Old Mildura Homestead on Sunday, July 4, from noon. “We will be asking those attending to make a pledge of cash, or in-kind support including materials and tools, or skills support, to further our plans,” steering committee chairman, Ron Dudley, said. “We have been heartened by the support that has already been shown for the Shed,

and our thanks go out to all those individuals and businesses who have already made a contribution to the cause,” he said. The group is planning a headquarters that has been estimated to cost about $130,000 including equipment, and to be built on land donated by Council on the Mildura Landfill site. Plans for the shed have been drawn up by GSD Architects, one of the Sunraysia businesses that has already been working to support the Men’s Shed initiative. The shed itself will be 15x24metres, and includes a workshop space, office, library, computer room, kitchen and meeting room. “We are confident of getting the support to see this project through,” Mr Dudley said. To make a donation, or for more information regarding the project, contact Ron on 5023 0798.

Sun a hot

By ARRON WOOD MANY people in Sunraysia have put their money where their mouth is and invested in solar panels on their homes. They have done this for a variety of reasons, both economic and environmental. You can bet we are going to be paying a whole lot more for electricity in the future, and household solar panels will help the bank balance. But it’s not a level playing field. On the Victorian side of the border the electricity generated by roof top panels is accounted for as a ‘net feed in tariff’. This means that Victorian households will make electricity savings from solar panels, but only be paid when they generate more power than they use in their homes. The net pay in tariff, a reward for going solar, only kicks in when they sell their surplus power. An average 1.5 kilowatt system of solar panels will never generate enough power to ensure payment. Even a much larger 5 kilowatt system, which could produce 100 percent of a house’s electricity, is unlikely to produce surplus electricity to qualify for a payment in the net pay in system. A fairer system, one that pays for every watt of electricity produced, is called a ‘gross feed in tariff’. If you live in Buronga, Gol Gol or Wentworth you already qualify because NSW and Canberra have a gross feed in tariff. In fact NSW residents are flat out installing roof top solar panels because of this more generous return on their investment. In recent years, the development of gross Feed-in-Tariff schemes in countries such as Germany and Spain have sparked rapid development of solar industries in those countries. Since implementing a gross Feed-in-Tariff scheme in 2000, Germany has experienced the highest rate of growth of solar photovoltaics in the world.

“Strong climate action would boost employment by 1.5 percent by 2030, for a total of 3.7 million extra jobs.” – Melbourne National Institute of Economic and Industry Research Wednesday, May 19, 2010 Germany, despite less sunshine than Australia, has 55percent of the world’s solar capacity, and operates a gross feed in tariff similar to NSW. Meanwhile Australia’s share of the solar photovoltaic market has fallen from around seven per cent in 1992 to one percent in 2007. All of this has occurred in a context where Australia has the highest average solar radiation per square metre of any continent in the world. It is also notable that Mildura has the highest solar radiation per square metre in Victoria.

Gross feed in tariffs are the world’s most successful policy mechanism for stimulating the rapid development of renewable energy. Just as we don’t need different road rules in different states, it is important for Australia that all states operate on one type of tariff for renewable energy fed into the grid. But more importantly for Sunraysia is a need for a Gross feed in Tariff on both sides of the Murray. Another major factor holding back the development of large scale power plants in Mildura is that tariffs are only available for a system under five kilowatts, and for the green light to be applied to large scale and commercial solar, our

Governments must address this issue. There is currently no feed in tariff for commercial or large scale utility solar, which means it can’t compete with far less expensive fossil fuel. I have watched with interest as the ACT and NSW have implemented an attractive gross feed in tariff for residential scale solar, and I am increasingly worried that Victoria is being left behind. I believe Victoria can secure ascendency in the solar industry by moving to not only a gross feed in tariff for residential solar, but an appropriately designed Feed in Tariff for commercial and large utility scale solar. The Property Council of Australia has already lobbied to have a gross feed in tariff for commercial scale solar. Commercial scale solar is putting large systems on buildings like Centro or The Deakin Centre. The Property Council of Australia can see every commercial site as a mini power station. They are insisting that it is absolutely necessary to establish a feed in tariff for the property industry and others to invest in clean energy systems. Why does the Government need to pay more through a tariff system for renewable energy when it has cheap coal and gas? At the moment the cost of Victorian renewable energy can’t really compete with cheap brown coal energy produced out of the Latrobe Valley. Solar and wind needs a helping hand to make the transition to cleaner energy before costs come down. Costs of solar energy will certainly come down through better technology and economies of scale.

•  SEEING THE LIGHT: Arron Wood (right) with State Minister for Energy and Resources during a recent campaign to get Victorian households to use low energy light bulbs. televisions in the early days to today when almost every home has them. The price of these units has fallen dramatically. Economies of scale simply mean that the more solar systems that are produced the lower the price will be. Coal and gas will continue to power Mildura for the foreseeable future. It is cheap because we have lots of it, and it also benefits each year from between $400 million and $1.2 billion in Government subsidies. Our power companies were initially owned and built by State Governments. The power stations, including power lines, were built and paid for using our money so the big capital start-up costs were avoided by the companies that own them today. Now we are expecting solar and wind-powered companies to use private money to start up the industry, and shareholders will need a certainty of return before investing. One way of providing certainty to investors will

be a price on carbon pollution. Just like we pay to have our rubbish collected and dumped at the Mildura tip, the big carbon polluters like coal-powered electricity producers should also pay for their dumping in the atmosphere. When the price of carbon is eventually set by the government, we will see Mildura enter another phase in its economic history. If we have our community sold on the benefits of renewable energy, and our business community is ready, then investment in our region will take off. Over the next few weeks I will be seeking a meeting with our Premier and other politicians to put forward the benefits of a Gross Feed-in Tariff, and add my voice to all others in the community who talk up the benefits of investing in Sunraysia. I will also seek meetings with the CEO’s of companies interested in establishing here. On behalf of the Mildura Development Corporation I will be taking several key messag-

es to these decision makers, including the fact that; Alternative energy generation represents a significant revenue opportunity for rural and regional Australian communities. It is also an opportunity to diversify business. In addition to direct revenue generation, the location of alternative energy installations in rural and regional Australia has the potential to generate further income through the alternative energy education sector (namely TAFE). Decentralised or distributed energy supply has the potential to avoid huge grid losses and reduce peak demand from the grid. This may defer the need for costly major grid upgrades of ageing infrastructure. A Gross Feed-in-Tariff is the most efficient and costeffective way to assist development and growth of large scale solar power generation for Victoria and Australia. We need a simplified national system to avoid confusion.

OUYEN’S Roxy Theatre will be transformed into a fairyland tonight, with a mixture of marionette puppetry and AUSLAN (sign language). A production dubbed ‘The Grimstones-Hatched,’ aims to “transport audiences to another world,” and centres on a family of puppets; the ‘Grimstones.’ Labelled as a production the whole family can enjoy, the show will start from 6.30pm, with tickets $10 for adults and $7 for children. Tickets are available by contacting the Mildura Arts Centre on 5018 8330 or the Visitor Information Centre on 5018 8376.

Others include a stamp album from Great Britain dated 1883, and another from Germany, in four languages, believed to be even earlier, maybe as early as the 1870s. “Some of the stamps in these albums are from places and countries that no longer exist… in that way they are an interesting journey through history,” Frank says. He has also received stamps on photos and stationary items, as well as those attached to a package that contained a mouth organ! It makes his charity work very interesting. Stamps to aid the cause can be posted to Frank at 9 Richardson Grove, Mildura 3500, or if more convenient, he is willing to call and pick them up.

ABOUT 350 people from across Australia will gather at Parliament House in Canberra on Monday for the first-ever Parliamentary recognition of Australia’s worst maritime disaster – the sinking of the Japanese troop carrier Montevideo Maru on July 1, 1942. The giant ship, formerly used to carry Japanese migrants, was torpedoed by United States submarine The Sturgeon, under the command of Lieutenant Commander William ‘Bull’ Wright, and went down within minutes. Wright wasn’t to know that he had just sent an estimated 1050 recently-captured Australian prisoners-of-war, including at least five from Sunraysia, to a watery grave. The dead also included Federal Minister Peter Garrett’s grandfather, a soldier, and Kim Beazley’s uncle, a missionary. The Australian Government was given a list of the ship’s Allied prisoners - known as the Katakana Roll – after the war, but it went missing after calls for an official inquiry into the disaster, and has never been found. The sinking of the Montevideo Maru has been one of the most contentious and talkedabout war-time disasters in history. Relatives back home didn’t learn the fate of their loved ones for three years. The Parliamentary recognition has been organised by the

Rabaul and Montevideo Maru Society, so named because the society is unsure how many missing Australians were killed during the Rabaul invasion, or who went down with the ship. Society secretary Bob Lawrence, a former ABC correspondent in Rabaul, says official Government recognition of the disaster is long overdue, and he expects Monday to be an emotional day as relatives meet with other affected families, and Ministers from all sides of Parliament.

a POW ship There were frequent air raids during the period Montevideo Maru was in port but the ship sustained no damage. On 22 June, an estimated 845 prisoners of war from Lark Force and 208 interned civilian men were marched from their camps to board the vessel under the supervision of Japanese guards. After embarkation, the ship set sail for Hainan island at the southeast corner of China. The Sturgeon was on patrol west of Luzon on the night of June 30 when the lookout spotted the Montevideo, which carried no special markings. The submarine’s log told of sighting the darkened ship, and giv-

ing chase on full power, around 17 knots, without making any headway. Then, around midnight, the Montevideo slowed to 12 knots. Wright’s log read; “After that, it was easy.” He altered the sub’s course to gain a position ahead of the ship, closed to within around 4000 yards, and fired four torpoedoes. They hit and exploded at 2.29am, and just 11 minutes later, the Montevideo Maru slid stern first beneath the waves, with the loss of all the Australian prisoners, and some of their Japanese captors. A subsequent Japanese re-

port to the owners of Montevideo Maru said three lifeboats were launched. Many of the crew and guards got away in the other two, and the following day made landfall near a lighthouse at Cape Bojeador. It was later reported that only a small number survived conflict with Filipino guerrillas. The last resting place of the Montevideo Maru is on the ocean floor of the South China Sea, at a depth of around 4200 metres. The sinking of the ship contributed more than 1000 of the 8000 Australians who died as prisoners of war of the Japanese.

WOULD-BE Texas Hold ‘Em poker Kings and Queens from Broken Hill, the Riverland, Robinvale/Euston and Swan Hill have started arriving in Sunraysia for one of regional Australia’s biggest and most lucrative poker tournaments. The two-day tournament, to be held at the Gol Gol pub tomorrow and Sunday, has attracted 220 of the best poker players from within a 300-kilometre radius of Mildura. A total of $35,000 is up for grabs over the two days, put up jointly by the Australia-wide 888Poker League, and the Gol Gol Hotel. Registration kicks off with breakfast at 8am tomorrow, with play starting at 10pm, and expected to last well into the night in a ‘war of attrition’ that will see one player outlasting all others to take the bulk of the money in the first of the two big events in the inaugural Sun River championships. Several directors of 888Poker from Melbourne and interstate will join the league’s Mildura representative David Miles and team captains from all 888Poker regions to help run the unique tournament. Around 30 poker tables will be set up underneath a huge marquee adjoining the undercover area of the hotel, and the hotel’s management has arranged for extra staff to be on hand for an expected busy two days.

Tribute to our By VAL ROBINSON SO what have tea cosies got to do with women from contemporary Mildura, and the pioneer women from 100 years ago, those hardy souls who helped settle our district? There does appear to be a resurgence in the popularity of those fanciful or practical covers for the ubiquitous tea pot. Recently there was a competition for best tea cosy run by the Inner Wheel Club of Irymple, a competition that elicited many fine hand-crafted items. What about the Biggest Morning Tea fund raiser? There are even some relatively new books published on the subject. It all started with a look at the things women do, things which haven’t changed much through the years… relationships with other women, and the comfort that is generated over ‘a nice cup of tea.’ In these times the • MISFORTUNE: The original fountain from Rio Vista Homestead, moved to the beverage could differ, intersection of 8th Street and Deakin Avenue many years ago, was the scene of but the idea is the same. tragedy in the late 1800s when one of the Chaffey toddlers fell in and drowned.

the heart, to share life’s wisdoms, to solve the problems of their world, for advice or comfort, for friendship’s sake. Women have always done this so well. The ritual of making tea, basic implements kettle, canister, cups and food continues the tradition of hospitality which country women have made into a fine art. The tea cosy becomes the metaphor for women of this century and the last. The warm heart the tea pot, the cosy the individual. One hundred years ago Mildura was a fledgling town which had already had its fair share of problems, from droughts to floods, to financial ruin and eventual good prospects for the future. The railway had arrived and there were roads of sorts (we would consider them tracks), the riverboats still carried goods and passengers to

the railheads of Morgan and Echuca, and the future looked reasonably secure. But what of the very new colony 20 years before that? Would you have brought your mother, wife, daughter, to this place – overrun with rabbits, drought-ridden, and extremely isolated? Would you, as a woman, have wanted to come if you had any inkling of what living conditions awaited you? If it wasn’t your dream to start in a new place to build a new future for your children, how hard would it have been to arrive and commence to build from scratch, in this god- forsaken landscape? The Chaffey’s Red Book proclaimed the new irrigation settlement in Mildura to be of idyllic climate, convenient location, where just by adding water a horticultural

paradise would be yours. Was it any wonder that a gentlewoman of refined sensibilities stepped off the paddle boat, promptly had hysterics and was subsequently confined to an asylum! What she and other such women saw was not by any standards idyllic. We locals are familiar with the swirling red dust of our periodic dust storms. The landscape of the late 1880’s and 1890’s was in the process of being denuded of all living plant life so that new rows of irrigated fruit trees and vines could be planted. Red sand permeated every nook and cranny at the slightest puff of wind. A deluge from above would turn the clay pans to skating rinks, and the tracks to boggy and impassable quagmires. The population in the early temperance years was predominately male, with guest houses such as the Warren at Deakin Ave and 7th St housing most of the unmarried men. Husbands and fathers provided for their families, rudimentary

Cooking over an open fire outdoors and water to be carted from the nearest water source was all that could be offered until the brick works was established on the flood plain, the timber mill near the wharf commenced, and corrugated iron could be shipped by paddle boat or bullock dray. The first priority was for crops to be planted so that an income could be produced before the comforts of constructing a home could be considered. I think of these women with admiration, as they sweltered in the hot sun, or froze on frosty mornings, beside their menfolk, planting, hoeing, raking, returning home to light the fire, prepare a meal.

My research has turned up details about women from all over Australia who immigrated to this land. They came from all walks of life – and from the very wealthy to the dirt poor.

they could live a far better life than what they knew in the old country. Women looked to improve the lot of their children even more so than themselves. In the late 19th century women were the chattels of men, and were duty bound to follow where their husbands led. They could not own land, have a university education, or a career. As writers and artists the

worth of women was negated by the male-dominated societies of the time. Women’s minds and bodies were deemed to be weaker than their male counterparts, and by definition they were accorded little recognition in their own right. Acceptable jobs for women were at the bottom of the socio economic heap – laundry

and housework mainly… they were paid little, and kept single or mothers supporting families poor. It was women such as these who came to set up home in Mildura. One of the first women of note was Hattie Schell, the first wife of W.B. Chaffey. She had followed her husband and his family to California, where W.B. and George Chaffey established irrigation settlements with notable success. After George had pronounced Mildura to be the next irrigation project, the families sold their properties and immigrated to Australia. A month before departure, Hattie and W.B.’s fourth child Helen Wilhelmina died. Hattie stayed in Mel-

bourne to await the birth of their next child, William. When she was strong again she journeyed to Mildura via rail to Echuca and paddle boat - a relatively comfortable journey. The Old Mildura Homestead became her home, along with her four surviving children, and the extended Chaffey families. Two weeks after the birth of another babe, Maurice Murray, Hattie collapsed and died. W.B. set off for a trip back to America to secure investors and settlers for the infant colony. A severe Mildura heat wave in January resulted in 19 deaths, including little Maurice, who had been left in the care of W.B.’s sister, Emma - the newly married Mrs Peter Mclaren.

He was buried alongside his mother at the Cureton Ave graveyard. There was no parent to grieve at his grave. Two years later, after another trip overseas, W.B. returned to Mildura with a new bride - the niece of his first wife, her namesake, Hattie Sexton Schell. Here was a cultured woman who had been to finishing school in Europe and was a talented musician. They immediately moved into the newly completed Rio Vista and Hattie became stepmother to her nephews and a niece. No doubt there was help in the house, and the plan was for the children to go to boarding school for their education. • NEXT: A second Chaffey family, but the tragedies continue.

Our recent Page 1 picture and feature story on the professional surfer who came all the way from Peru to wed a Werrimull girl brought back many memories for a former Millewa girl who had a similar experience. She spoke to the Mildura Weekly’s ALAN ERSKINE about her...

Plane trip to an island paradise FORMER Millewa farm girl Natasha Rogers remembers the feeling of apprehension as she prepared to board an aircraft in Mildura for her firstever plane flight. This was no ordinary trip... it was more of an adventure... all the way through to the Solomon Islands. It was to re-kindle a relationship with Islander Geoff Kaka, who she had met some years earlier, as a 19-year-old in the middle of a three-year library course in Ballarat. Natasha’s first overseas trip had a fairy-tale ending, resulting in a Millewa wedding, a new life in the Solomons, trips back home for the birth of two of her four children, learning a new language, and interesting jobs in the house building and library fields. Now, as Natasha Kaka, she’s back for an extended stay at the home of her parents in Nichols Point after coming home for the birth of baby Jorja on May 27. The good news is that despite a few complications at birth, Jorga is happy and healthy. The bad news is that Mum and daughter are stuck here until all the complicated passport issues for Jorja are solved. Natasha, 37, was born at Mildura Base Hospital, raised on the family farm at Karawinna and educated at Werrimull, until she left school at 18 to pursue her dream of becoming a librarian. In Ballarat she met Geoff, who had come to Australia from his home village of Oriore, (population 100), South Malaita in the Solomon Islands. Geoff, now 40, was doing a civil engineering degree at the same university where Natasha was studying. They struck up a friendship, and near the end of his course, and before returning to work in the Solomons capital Honiara, Geoff accompanied Natasha back home to the Millewa to meet the family, and experience life in the

Mallee wheat belt. And according to Natasha, he loved it. While working in the Mildura library during 1994/95, Natasha kept in touch with Geoff, who was by then working with the Solomon Islands Water Authority.

Natasha’s first overseas trip had a fairy-tale ending, resulting in a Millewa wedding, a new life in the Solomons, trips back home for the birth of two of her four children, learning a new language, and interesting jobs in the house building and library fields. Natasha remembers it well. “It was a costly exercise,” she said. “The letters were okay, but the phone calls were costing about $1 a minute!” Geoff kept asking her to visit, but it took a while for Natasha to work up the courage to make her first plane flight. “Being out in the Millewa I hadn’t had the opportunity to fly before, so just the trip from Mildura to Melbourne was a big experience,” she said. Then it was Melbourne to Brisbane for an overnight stay before a three-hour flight to Honiara. Geoff and his family was there to meet her, and in Natasha’s words; “I couldn’t have been treated any better.” The adventure continued when Geoff took her to his village for a few days. To get there they had to fly by light aircraft to an island’s bush landing strip, then transfer to

a fibreglass boat for a 40-minute ride around the coast to the village. “These days the trip takes a bit longer,” Natasha said. “The airstrip has been closed due to an ongoing land dispute, and the only option now is a boat ride from the capital.” Natasha said it the best four weeks she had spent in her life, and she was ecstatic less than a year later when Geoff decided to spend his four weeks annual leave in Mildura and the Millewa.

Plane trip to an island paradise • From previous page Early in 1996 Geoff applied for permanent residency in Australia, and after it was approved in July, the couple made arrangements for an October wedding, held at the Catholic Church in Werrimull, with the reception at Lake Cullulleraine. “It was fantastic,” Natasha said. “We had a Polynesian dance group from Mildura entertaining about 100 guests, including Geoff’s family and friends from the Solomons.” Regular work was hard to find for Geoff, but he eventually went to work for Mick Englefield, and then Express Engineers, before successfully applying for a project engineering position with Coliban Water in Bendigo. Natasha stayed in Mildura for six months before getting a job as a health insurance consultant in Bendigo, and later as a parttime librarian. Their first child, Michael, was born in 2000, and two years later their first daughter, Taneesha, arrived. Natasha said she and Geoff made sure they got back to the Solomons on a regular basis, sometimes bringing one of Geoff’s nephews or nieces back home for a holiday. In 2002 Geoff went back home to visit his ill father, and a month later he brought his father to Australia for better medical treatment. “He made a full recovery,” Natasha said. “He lived with us for about 10 months, and enjoyed the area and the people so much he didn’t want to go home!” In 2005 Natasha was on the internet when she came across a job that she thought would suit Geoff - with a Brisbane-based company working under the Regional Assistance Mission to the Solomon Islands. He was successful, and they packed up and moved to Honiara in January, 2006. They have lived there ever since, with Geoff now working as the infrastructure adviser for the Correctional Service (Prisons) of the Solomons. The couple have built a house on land they bought about 10 years ago. Natasha came back to Mildura to have her third child, Dylan, in 2007, and made the same decision when she was pregnant with Jorja. “We are always back and forwards between here and the Solomons, and still have a lot of furniture in storage at mum and dad’s,” Natasha said. “We are thinking we would like

• WAITING: Geoff and Natasha Kaka’s three eldest children, Michael (right), Taneesha (left) and Dylan are waiting back in Honaira, capital of the Solomon Islands, ready for the arrival of baby sister Jorja. to be back in Australia by the time the eldest kids are ready to start in high school, if not before.” Natasha describes her ‘new’ life as an interesting one. She has become part of a community family of 15 at their home, they call out to see Geoff’s mum and dad on a regular basis, and she has learnt to speak Pidgin English, but not Geoff’s village dialect. “Communication with the family can be difficult,” she says. “Geoff’s mum doesn’t speak any English, and she doesn’t speak Pidgin either...but we manage.” Natasha said she is enjoying life in a totally different environment to what she was used to in Australia, the children have all picked up the languages they need to know, and mix at school with kids from many countries, so they have a broader knowledge than most. “We love the family life in the Solomons, but we both know that Australia is where the future lies for the sake of the children,” she said.

Megan Joshua

WE usually write the story for the wedding page in-house, but this time the bride was kind enough to do the honours! This is the wedding in her own words. Megan Carter married Joshua Jones on Saturday, March 13, in Mildura. Megan is the daughter of Brian and Mary Carter (Robinvale), and Josh the son of Ken and Adrienne Jones, of Mandurama, (near Orange, NSW). The bride and her attendants – Martine Silcox (Mildura); Maeghan Jones (Orange); and Lily McDonald (Howlong) prepared for the day with hairstyles courtesy of Julia’s, and makeup applied by Toni Bottoms. The bridesmaids wore strapless dresses of violet georgette, each featuring a sparkling brooch. The tiny flower girl’s dress with champagne satin bodice and a full tulle skirt was made by the mother of the bride. The groom was supported by David Horsburgh (Perth); Hugh Morton (Brisbane); and Paddy McKiernan (Blayney); all dressed in suits hired from Spurlings Formal Wear. Ready for local photographer Lisa Clark and her assistant Natalie, Megan wore a Henri Josef designed princess-style gown of beaded ivory lace over champagne satin, featuring a contrasting satin sash at the bodice. An ivory tulle veil tipped with teardrop crystals finished the bride’s attire, which was purchased from The Adelaide Bridal Centre. A wedding gift from the groom, the bride also wore single drop ivory pearl earrings and necklace made, along with engagement and wedding rings, by Etherington’s Jewellers, Mildura. Flowers on the day were courtesy of Nean’s Florist. Nean took great care in sourcing and assembling beautiful ivory and pink tulips complemented by white freesias for the bride; an array of tulips and freesias for the bride and groom’s attendants and family; and white oriental lilies for the church service. Videographers, and friends of the couple, Sharon and Darren Kerslake, of Mildura, filmed the special day from beginning to end, capturing many memorable moments. The wedding party was transported for the day by three beautiful vintage Jaguars (locally owned), in which the bride, her parents and attendants arrived in style to the wedding ceremony, conducted by Fr. Bill Melican at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church. Prior to the couple’s wedding reception, the 100 wedding guests were treated to light refreshments in the ‘Rose Garden’ at The Grand Hotel, Mildura, before enjoying a delicious meal, flowing drinks and night-long dancing in the ‘Grand Ballroom’, beautifully decorated by Ray at Party By Design (Mildura).

The dessert served was the bride and groom’s exquisite wedding cake produced by Cake Creations by Lynne at Irymple. The couple’s family and friends are scattered far and wide across Australia and overseas, so they were delighted when many of them travelled such distances to share in their special day. Megan and Josh honeymooned in Port Douglas, QLD, before making their home in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Ray White Mildura tackle Prostate Cancer head on Local agents at Ray White Mildura are using the footy field to raise vital funds for Prostate Cancer research and increase the awareness of men’s health issues. As proud sponsors of the annual Ray White EJ Whitten Legends Game, scheduled for 6 July at Etihad Stadium, Ray White Mildura will join forces with AFL’s biggest names to raise money for the EJ Whitten Foundation. Principal Craig Kerr attended a special breakfast at Etihad Stadium this week to launch this year’s match with the Director of the EJ Whitten Foundation, Ted Whitten Jnr and former AFL legends, Neil Balme and Glenn Archer.

About the Ray White EJ Whitten Legends Game

Now in it’s fifteen year, The Ray White EJ Whitten Legends Game is a unique fundraising initiative to raise money for Prostate Cancer research and to promote the awareness of men’s health. Held at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, this annual event reunites recently retired champions of Australian Rules Football and commemorates the legacy of the great Ted Whitten in a State of Origin football match between Victoria and the All Stars. To date the match has raised over $900,000 for The EJ Whitten Foundation in support of Prostate Cancer research.

Date: 6 July Stadium d a h ti E : e r e h W Time: 7.30pm

“Ray White has sponsored the Ray White EJ Whitten Legends Game since 2003 and this year we’re hoping to hit the 1 million dollar mark”, said Craig. Prostate Cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer, with aapproximately 1 in 9 Australian men developing the disease during their lifetime. While more than 20,000 men are diagnosed with it each year, early detection can mean the difference between life and death.“Men often find it difficult to talk about their health and footy is great way to reach them”, said Craig.

: $7.00 6 / Concession Cost: Adult: $1 / Family: $40 Child U/6: Free the gate

“We’re also looking for local footy legends to put their hand up to play in this year’s match alongside their AFL heroes. Applications can be made online at legendsgame.com.au and close on 15 June”, Craig said.

Letters to the editor Build the ‘Jewel’ Sir, It was great to read Alan Erskine’s article about the proposed “Jewel” last week. At last someone is not sitting on the fence! I have only lived in Mildura for 10 years. It’s a beautiful place but needs direction. Everything takes so long to happen, the mall for an example is a disgrace. Malls throughout the world have never worked. Get rid of the restaurant at the end near 8th Street and open it up. New paving is not the answer. Meanwhile, our council doesn’t seem to be capable of making a decision about anything. We have been offered a $400million-development, sure there will be a casino but there will also be a convention and cultural centre and the development of the riverfront – that is something that is really needed unless you think the rowers’ club is a tourist attraction! Loyal patrons will still play pokies at the clubs of their choice – it’s their comfort zone, while visitors to the Jewel would walk up Langtree for meals. Few visitors eat where they stay, except for breakfast. I hope there will be a community vote soon. I’m not a betting man, but I’m going for “build the Jewel. Garry Jones Mildura

Fluoride ‘paradise’ Sir, Australia is one of the most fluoridated countries in the world and therefore it should follow that Australia has the best level of dental health in the world. The operative word here is SHOULD.

23

lettersdesk@milduraweekly.com.au provide the benefits it is touted to deliver. Australians are having valuable tax dollars wasted by being poured into a scam that actually puts the health of its citizens at risk. It is crucial that our politicians start listening to the research, start listening to the many letters written to them and, wake up and recognise the truth. They can start right here!! There is still time to act! Do not contaminate our drinking water with fluorosolicic acid. It is time to recognise the truth of the statistics. Leave Sunrasysia’s water alone. Bette Schulz Red Cliffs

• An artist’s impression of our Jewel Casino

Disturbing trend

Fluorosoliciic acid (fluoride) added to the drinking water is vigorously claimed by our NHMRC to improve teeth. In fact Dr Carney, chief health officer of Victoria, has stated on a number of occasions – no matter what age you are, this chemical (fluoride) will continue to provide a lifelong benefit from babies through to the aged. Can Dr Carney please explain how it is possible that the oral health status of Australia’s adults was second worst in the OECD group of wealthy nations? (May 24, 2010 The Mercury: Voice of Tasmania) Can he explain how it is that Tasmania – the state that has had their water fluoridated for the longest time in

Australia also has the worst dental situation in Australia? In Tasmania despite an increase in care being provided (and in spite of having their water contaminated with fluorosolicic acid (fluoride), the waiting list for oral health services in the state is 10,765, up by about 2000 from two years ago. Greens leader Bob Brown has proposed a national dental scheme in his Budget reply speech this month. What he should be including in this scheme is the call for an end to water fluoridation across our nation. It is time for our government to recognise and acknowledge that water fluoridation has not worked, does not work and will never ever

Sir, With the number of cyclists increasing in our cities and on the roads, motorists in Victoria must be more vigilant to ensure the safety of these road users. The ambulance union in Victoria, and lawyers Slater and Gordon have identified a disturbing trend in accidents where cyclists have been injured as a result of collisions or attempts to avoid collisions, with car door openings. Drivers and their passengers should get into the habit of doing a head check before opening the car door, just like checking for blind spots when driving. Fortunately, since 1995 cyclists who had been hit by an open or opening vehicle door, have been covered by the Transport Accident Commission scheme in Victoria, but it’s obviously better to prevent these injuries from occurring than dealing with their aftermath. Taking the time to pause before opening a car door can save a cyclist

from injury and even death. Janine Gregory Motor vehicle injury specialist Slater and Gordon Melbourne

Who really won? Sir, The Soundshell, “Nowingi Place”, was named in recognition of the fight against toxic waste. Do people realise that “Nowingi Place” is right next to a toxic waste dump – the Lower Murray Water treatment plant? The very same toxic waste fluoride that was meant for Nowingi is going straight into our water. Who really won? Terry Trinick Nichols Point

DES information Sir, The recent campaign for DES (diethylstilboestrol) Awareness Week June 1-7 raised awareness of the anti-miscarriage drug, DES, given to women during pregnancy from 1938 to 1971 (and sometimes beyond). Women given DES, and their children of that pregnancy, are at higher risk of certain types of cancer and reproductive problems. There are about 160,000 DES-exposed Australians, yet many are unaware of the fact and the potential adverse health effects. It is important that people with known or suspected exposure to DES are aware of the vital special care they need. For support contact DES Action Australia –NSW (02) 9875 4820.

Keeping up with Shane Jones

HIS primary focus is painting, although print making and sculpture are other mediums that sometimes engage him. Artist Shane Jones was born in Melbourne, in 1955, and has been working as an artist for more than 30 years. He obtained a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) at RMIT Melbourne, 1999, a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art Honours) at RMIT, Melbourne, 2000, and a Master of Fine Arts (by Research), at Monash University, Caulfield, 2004. Shane has held a number of solo exhibitions and has exhibited widely throughout Australia. He has hosted many painting workshops at secondary schools and given artist talks at those same schools as well as universities. His work is held in numerous public and private collections, and he currently lives and works in Melbourne. Shane Jones is currently artist-inresidence at the Art Vault, and will be hosting a two-day painting workshop this weekend, from 10am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday. The aim of the workshop is to show through demonstrations, a number of ways a painting is begun and the transitional stages that lead to a finished painting. There will be discussions on palette preparation, colour, mediums, brushes, the simplicity behind something that seems visually complex and the relationship between technique and the ideas behind the image.

• WELCOME TO MY WORLD: Shane Jones by his own hand, ABOVE, a self portrait from 1996 and BELOW LEFT, ‘Lace and Blood’, an oil painting on linen. RIGHT is his work ‘Quodlibet in Cream and Black’, another oil on linen work from 2006. BELOW RIGHT: Anita Laurence’s ‘Mildura Farms’. The price is $220, and $150 for concession card holders and students. To book please phone the Art Vault 5022 0013. When asked how he intends to spend the remainder of his time as artist-in-residence he stated: “For the past five years I have been painting realist pictures in the trompe l’oeil (trick the eye) tradition. As this type of painting is time consuming, I will bring along paintings in their preparatory stages to complete on site. During my time at the Art Vault I will also prepare paintings to be completed after the conclusion of the residency. These will be still life paintings that reference objects from the studio and the domestic environment. Bearing in mind that I will be

giving a workshop at the Art Vault, the various stages of these paintings will be useful aids in demonstrating the progression of a painting. “Meanwhile, the landscape genre has been a recent development in my work, and as a secondary project, if time allows, I am interested in taking advantage of the close proximity of Wentworth to Mildura to make a series of small plein-air paintings at the Perry Sands.” For an overview of Shane’s work see his website at www.shanejonesart.com. Meanwhile, several other artists are booked in at the Art Vault in coming weeks month for an artistin-residence tenure. They are Anita Laurence, Bill Young, eX de Medici and Rosalind Atkins. Master printer Bill Young has been working with some of Australia’s leading artists since 1976, custom printing individually etched prints on handmade paper for the artists. He is a regular visitor to The Art Vault and has printed there with many artists including Jon Cattapan, Barbie Kjar, Julie Chambers, Anita Laurence, Filomena Cappola and Geoffrey Ricardo. Bill will be in residence at The Art Vault from June 25 to July 20, and will exhibit a selection of printers’ proofs spanning his printing career.

maker, painter and performance artist eX de Medici. Both artists will be working in Art Vault studios throughout July and this is a great opportunity to meet the artists and see them create their works.

Wood book launch in mall Anita Laurence is a King Valleybased artist whose work celebrates and captures the landscape of her surrounding region. Whilst in Mildura she has selected images of the houses, orchards, vineyards, palm and gum trees that line the streets. Anita’s linocuts and paintings are an interpretive and sentimental reflection of the aspects that evoke the true spirit and energy of the local Sunraysia environment. Bill Young’s exhibition of printers’ proofs and Anita Laurence’s exhibition ‘SunRaysed’ will both open on Wednesday, June 30 and run to Monday, July 19 Rosalind Atkins will return to The Art Vault after staying here in December 2009, and hosting an exhibition of wood engravings ‘A Discourse with Trees’. She will be joined by internationally acclaimed tattoo artist, print

Two Day Painting Workshop with Shane Jones In this hands-on workshop Shane will demonstrate and discuss the painting process, from the initial idea to the finished artwork. Shane will focus on the simplicity behind making something that appears complex. Sat 19 - Sun 20 June,10am - 4pm, - $220 Concession and students $150 bookings essential.

Known for its powerful tunes and carefree nature, Marshall and The Fro have become a household name in recent years, especially amongst fans of Australia’s numerous rock-roots festivals. While the band’s main goal will be to leave local audiences wanting more, the trio, which features frontman

Marshall Okell, bass player Luke Ferguson and drummer Jacob Mann, will also use the trip to promote their recently released album ‘Friends for Life.’ Completed after a threemonth stint working alongside award-winning producer Anthony Lycenko, and recorded at 301 and Rocking Horse Studios in Byron Bay, Marshall said ‘Friends for Life’ was arguably the group’s best work.

“It goes from straightthumping rock to deep ballads,” he said. “There are uptempo festival songs, songs about heartbreak, and songs about friendship. “I personally love this album, and can’t wait to take it out on the road.” Marshall said that with any new record, a hint of nerves had appeared on the album’s release date. “Our first album had a party-theme to it,” he said. “It was basically just three young bucks having fun with music. “This album is very different, it’s deeper, and touches on more emotions. “It’s always nerve-racking with a new release to see how fans are going to react, and that was certainly the case with ‘Friends for Life.’ “Thankfully the feedback we’ve received so safe has been very positive, and hope-

fully that can continue in Mildura.” Marshall said he was looking forward to making the journey to Mildura, with the trip set to be a first-time visit for all three band members. “We played a gig with Jackson Firebird a couple of weeks ago and they assured us that Mildura has some great crowds,” he said. “We thrive on playing in front of red-hot audiences, and hopefully that’s what we’ll get on the night.” Mildura will mark one of 30 towns the band will visit as part of its national album

launch tour, and will follow on from a huge 12 months of touring for the boys, who played a phenomenal 200 shows in 2009. “Needless to say we’re all gig junkies,” Marshall said. “When a crowd goes off it makes me want to go a step further with my performance. “I tend to always get right into my songs, and it’s always nice to have an awesome crowd to play for, and it’s why we love getting out on the road as often as we can.” Along with Jackson Firebird, Marshall and The Fro will be joined by Newcastle

Creative kids will love latest exhibition IT is a well known fact that kids love having fun and Mildura Arts Centre is planning an exciting children’s program to mark the tenure of the ‘Fairytales’ exhibition. This touring showcase from Grafton Regional Gallery features the work of Northern Rivers artist Dave Funnell, and has been described as “nothing short of amazing”. Dave is defiantly ‘kooky’ and a big kid to boot who can certainly tell a story. The exhibition features moving, interactive sculptures telling stories from Dave’s life and imagination. Fairytales explores the tales, memories and moments from childhood created in through a series of suitcase sculptures and ink drawings. “The suitcase sculptures move, incorporate music and require the viewer to make them work by turning handles

and lifting secret compartment lids,” Grafton Regional Gallery public programs and education officer, Rose Marin, told the Weekly. “Fairytales will fill your gallery full of happy children, however, Fairytales is not just for children. Adults enjoy the interaction just as much, and maybe more, as many of the stories are not so much fairytales for them, as they are tales from their childhood. “The Malice in Wonderland series of eleven ink drawings give additional entertainment to an older audience with many contemporary references.” The exhibition opened at the Mildura Arts Centre yesterday and will run through to July 21 from 10am to 5pm daily. Educational and public tours are available by contacting the gallery co-ordinator Karen Wilgar on 5018 8330.

rockers ‘Benjalu,’ with Marshall saying locals could expect nothing but a high-energy show. “We love to move around and engage the audience, and I know from personal experience that Jackson Firebird have that same kind of highintensity,” Marshall said. “Anyone who is a fan of old-fashioned Australian rock is going to love us, and hopefully we can pack The Sandbar out, and share a few beers with locals afterwards.” Marshall and The Fro, Jackson Firebird and Benjalu will take the stage from 9pm, with entry $10 on the night.

Jimmy Barnes back with new rock ‘n’ roll JIMMY Barnes is the master of many things but none better than singing great rock songs, and that is exactly what the Australian rock icon is doing on his 16th solo album, ‘Rage & Ruin’. Coming off the #1 platinum selling 2009 album ‘The Rhythm And The Blues’, Jimmy has once again ripped off the suit to deliver his most powerful rock single in years – ‘Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead’. With all 12 songs on the new album co-written by Jimmy, the highly anticipated album release sees a return to career-best form for the legendary Australian rocker. Jimmy launched the new single at State of Origin #2 at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Wednesday night. Recorded earlier this year with a stellar line up of L.A session musicians, and produced by Don Gehman (REM, John Mellencamp) ‘Rage And Ruin’ is scheduled for release on August 13. (It is available already digitally).

WINTER PROGRAM Thank You – It’s Been Great The café will close Sunday 27 June 2010. Until then please continue to enjoy Mildura’s best garden views and café hospitality while you are visiting Rio Vista and the gallery.

The #1 Girls’ night out! One Night Only

Change is harder for you than friends and family may believe. You’re of the Fixed Quality. Once you’ve settled on a specific course of action, you rarely deviate. On Monday you’ll deal with unexpected developments in a certain situation. Ultimately, you’ll be happy the change occurred. Inspiration will flow on Wednesday. It’s a great time to flex your artistic muscles. Positive vibrations will abound when the Sun trines Neptune in Aquarius on Saturday. You’ll realize how gifted you are. You’re very empathetic, Pisces. On Monday your urge to help others will increase. You might volunteer at a soup kitchen or consider mentoring a child. A wish will come true when Mars trines transformative Pluto in your zone of hopes and dreams on Tuesday. You have a secret desire you’ve never shared with anyone. Now you’ll see your dream become a reality. Family issues prove troubling this weekend. Don’t look at your loved ones through rose-colored glasses.

Leo, get ready to receive a big boost of positive energy. The week starts on a high note when Venus enters sunny Leo on Monday. You’ll be brimming over with confidence. Others will view you in a favorable light, so this is a great time to mix and mingle. Confusion reigns on Wednesday. Keep an eye out for con artists, and don’t believe everything you hear. Give a wish list another look on Saturday. It’s time to update your aspirations. Decisions, decisions! You’ll employ your considerable brainpower on Tuesday, Virgo. You have a tough choice to make, one that will stretch the limits of your analytical mind. Sit down with pad and paper and list your options. Don’t rush to judgment on Friday. Before losing your cool, check to be sure the facts are correct. Responsibilities pile up on Saturday. The Sun squares industrious Saturn in Virgo and you’ll need to balance household chores with leisure activities. Change is coming, Libra! Get ready for new experiences to jazz up your regular routine. On Monday an exciting event will occur. You may find a new friend or learn of a new opportunity. Your charm quotient will be high. Wanderlust hits on Wednesday. You’ll have the urge to see parts of the globe you’ve only dreamed of visiting. Fortune will be fickle when the Moon in Libra opposes Jupiter on Saturday. This isn’t the weekend to buy lottery tickets. Scorpio, you always root for the underdog. On Monday an urge to be public spirited will kick in. You may want to donate time to a fundraiser. An associate you haven’t heard from recently will call when the Moon in your friendship zone conjuncts active Mars on Thursday. Your companion will be sorry he or she has neglected you. You’ll be feeling domestic on Saturday. You might start a garden or put some potted herbs on the kitchen windowsill.

You’ll be in a good mood early this week. You’re ruled by the emotional Moon and your feelings often zigzag from sad to glad. On Tuesday the Moon conjuncts Venus in sunny Leo and you’ll be walking on top of the clouds. It may be hard to concentrate on Thursday. Your thoughts will meander, and it will be difficult to maintain a concise train of thought. Don’t deal with complex issues. A secret comes to light on Saturday.

Miscommunication will be the norm on Friday when the Moon in Virgo squares your ruler, Mercury, in quicksilver Gemini. Words will take on new meaning, especially if you speak very quickly. Take a careful approach when talking to others. Family issues are a part of the weekend scenario

Taurus, your energy level will amp up this week as your ruler, Venus, enters fiery Leo on Monday. You’ll possess a new sense of boldness and become quite daring. It’s possible you’ll buy a new wardrobe, dramatically highlight your hair, or consider body art. On Friday an associate may try to talk you into an unwise course of action. Remember that it’s OK to say no, even to a close friend. On Sunday you’ll deal with a nagging health issue.

Sagittarius, you love visiting new places. Venus enters fiery Leo and your zone of travel on Monday, and the urge to explore new landscapes will be overwhelming. You’ll be feeling disgruntled on Thursday. It will be hard to please you, no matter how hard your associates try. It might be a good idea to spend some time alone until your mood improves. You’ll be in a positive mindset on Saturday. Mental storm clouds will lift and positive optimism will return.

Entries close Friday, 25 June, 2010. Winners in Public Notices Friday, 02 July, 2010.

Productivity is your watchword this week, Aries. Enthusiasm and drive are two of your best traits. On Tuesday Mars, your ruler, trines Pluto and you’ll have a strong desire to get busy. A family member will need support on Thursday. Try not to let your frustration show when you interact with your relative. Everyone needs a helping hand occasionally. You may be tempted to blow your diet on Saturday. Keep away from the candy when grocery shopping.

Capricorn, this week you’ll discover your inner boldness! You usually err on the side of caution, which is OK, but it isn’t a good idea to let fear overwhelm you. On Tuesday dynamic Mars trines powerful Pluto in Capricorn and you’ll step outside your comfort zone. Life will be extremely hectic on Friday. You may rush from one event to another and be pulled in different directions. On Saturday you’ll encounter delays as you go about your regular routine.

Richard’s ‘pimped up’ ride • ABOVE: Richard’s car before it was ‘pimped up’ by local businesses.

Richard Morfaw Mildura City Traders manager Richard Morfaw is certainly one of Mildura’s personalities, and he has a car to match. Mildura shoppers would have seen ‘Richard’s Ride’ buzzing around the CBD over the past three years - it’s the green Seat Ibiza hatch with Richard’s name on the rear window in hot pink! But it didn’t always look that way, as Richard explained. “It was a beat up car that has now done almost 300,000 kilometres. I had parked in front of Autopro and was trying to get out of the car but the door was jammed shut,” he said. “Ange Halacas from Autopro noticed me having trouble and came and helped me.” Ange came up with the idea of ‘shaming’ Richard by turning the car into a project. He and a host of other Mildura business owners contributed parts and labor to ‘pimp up’ the car. For a while it became one of the most recognised cars in the district. Some of the additions include mag wheels, a significantly beefed up sound system, that lairy hot pink rear window, racing seat covers, big bore exhaust system and a host of other modifications. Three years later, the car is still Richard’s main ‘ride’. Richard says he intends to get the car ‘re-pimped’ when he’s finished with it and give it away to a worthy recipient.

HUGE DEMO SPECIAL!

Drive Away

By MARTON PETTENDY YOU’D be forgiven for forgetting Hyundai already offers a reasonably stylish, wellspecified sedan in Australia’s resurgent mainstream mid-size car market, because the fact is the outgoing Sonata was the latest in a series of medium sedans from the Korean giant that failed to sway significant numbers of buyers away from its far more accomplished Japanese and European rivals. Hyundai hopes that will change with the Sonata’s successor, which will be known in Australia as the i45 and also dispenses with its predecessor’s generic styling and pedestrian engines for a sleek new Californian-inspired design and an all-new Theta II direct-injection 2.4-litre petrol four.

Matched as standard in all but the entrylevel Active manual with a slick-shifting six-speed automatic transmission, the direct-injection engine is crisp, refined and responsive all the way to its 6600rpm redline, although auto versions limit it to 6000rpm. First seen in last year’s upgraded Santa Fe, Hyundai’s own new auto is accompanied by well-sorted and intuitive steering wheel paddle shifters in the auto-only Elite and Premium variants (which also score push-button, keyless starting), but can produce a degree of gear-hunting between the fairly wide ratios when left to its own devices during keen driving. There’s enough bottom-end torque

in this category as the revs rise.

We like

That said, the i45 cabin is generally a quiet, classy place to be, with a liberal dose of soft-touch surfaces and well bolstered leather-trimmed seats offering plenty of lateral support and a wide range of adjustment, even if we’d have preferred a bit more reach extension from the beautifully crafted four-spoke multi-function leather steering wheel.

Exterior and interior design, build quality, overall refinement, standard equipment list, engine performance and efficiency, improved body control, cabin space and ergonomics Room for improvement

Pronounced steering kickback and rack rattle, more expensive pricing, footoperated parking brake, gooseneck bootlid hinges, tyre noise on coarse surfaces, engine noise at high revs

It’s a shame the mid-range Elite’s power seat upgrade makes do without the manual height adjuster on the passenger seat in the base model and the fitment of a foot-operated parking brake in all auto models is even more disappointing.

for the i45 to feel brisk off the line, while midrange and top-end power delivery is also impressive without being outstanding. The i45 is among the class leaders in terms of fuel economy too, but it’s certainly not the quietest engine

Otherwise, the i45 cabin is highly ergonomic, with plenty of well-sized storage space in the lockable glovebox, centre armrest tub and oversized door compartments, which comprise integrated bottle holders.

for mid-size cars However, it escapes us why Hyundai has persisted with out-dated, spacerobbing gooseneck bootlid hinges in an age when even the pint-sized Mazda2 sedan comes with multi-link hinges mounted outside the load space.

Headroom both front and rear (even with the flagship model’s standard sunroof) and vision in all directions is excellent despite the coupe-like roofline, while plenty of legroom and effective climate-control outlets look after rear passengers better than in many other medium sedans. Surprisingly, although the i45 interior had input from a number of Hyundai’s six global design studios but was finalised in Korea, the edgy wedgeshaped exterior design was produced solely in the US. Highlights include a chromed fourpiece lower window trim strip that extends to the headlights, a prominent shoulder crease that rises from the front wheel-arches to the tail-lights and wraps around the rear corners, and a V-shaped bonnet feature that extends down to the boldly chromed three-bar grille with oversized Hyundai badge. The contemporary dash design - with ‘vacuum fluorescent display’ instrument gauges - looks upmarket even in the mid-spec Elite (we didn’t drive the entrylevel Active, which arrives here in July) - the major controls and push buttons in which also have a quality feel but the integrated digital audio/clock/ outside temperature display in Premium models is far classier than the smaller mono-tone LCD panel in downstream variants. And there’s no doubt the i45 is one of the best-value medium sedans on the market, offering a range-wide standard features list that’s unrivalled by any of its foes and includes 16-inch alloys, an alarm, hill-holder, trip computer, auto

headlights, foglights, remote audio controls, iPod connectivity and partial leather trim. Despite the fact the Sonata replacement no longer undercuts its key Japanese rivals, its avant-garde exterior and interior styling, impressive overall refinement, high-quality fit and finish and strong performance and economy credentials may be enough to attract many more buyers than its forebear did. But Hyundai’s latest mid-size passenger car still falls short in terms of ride/handling compared to the newest members of the segment, including Mazda’s facelifted Six and Suzuki’s outstanding new Kizashi, which set new dynamic benchmarks when it was launched last week. Yes, the i45 brings marked improvements in body control over the Sonata and combines a solidfeeling bodyshell with refreshingly firm suspension and well-sorted damping to be composed and sure-footed over a wide range of Aussie roads. Hyundai says an extensive local development program resulted in increased compression damping at both ends and increased high-speed rebound damping at the front-end,

but the fact is the i45 suspension is softer and allows more bodyroll than the Kizashi, yet doesn’t ride as well as the surprisingly slick Suzuki or Mazda’s highly regarded Six.

Similarly, Hyundai Australia also specified the sportier of two global hydraulic steering tunes available to it, affording 10-15 per cent less power assistance for a weightier, sportier steering set-up.

WITH the global shift toward smaller, more fuel efficient cars, and the growing influence of developing countries such as China, the world’s prestige auto manufacturers are working hard to remain – or, indeed, become – relevant at the

lightweight and, gulp, lowermargin end of the market. Not so long back, few would have imagined that Aston Martin would dare build a baby hatch, that Ford would trot out a micro-car for Lincoln, that BMW would produce a front-drive model series with half an inline-six engine and that the retro

Undoubtedly, steering is the weakest link in an otherwise polished package that is more upmarket than any previous medium sedan from Hyundai – not just in terms of interior and exterior design and build quality but also price, which could be an even more pivotal factor in the i45’s success in Australia.

Mini Cooper would become the benchmark premium compact from which the likes of Audi, Mercedes, Alfa Romeo, Citroen and even BMW – which owns Mini – are now hell-bent on stealing share. Small and light-sized hatchbacks from prestige brands remain a niche in

HONDA CITY VTI-L

Okay, so the i45 steers better than the Sonata it replaces, feeling super-stable at speed and keeping torque steer well at bay, but it still lacks the precision and feedback of a Camry – let alone the leaders in this class – and the merest hint of a mid-corner ripple sends shockwaves directly back through the steering wheel in the form of incessant steering rack rattle and sometimes violent kickback.

SFNL to wear blue for men’s health IT’S common knowledge that Australian blokes simply love their sport, and it’s a trend that’s happily embraced in Sunraysia. As a result, droves of men congregate at local sporting events each and every weekend, one of the main reasons why Mallee Family Care’s Men and Family Relationships staff will attend Sunraysia Football and Netball League matches in force tomorrow. Their goal is to spread the word about the importance of men’s health, specifically encouraging local blokes to undergo regular health checks. It’s all part of International Men’s Health Week, with staff to hand out flyers, pens and other information pieces to spectators while wearing blue, the official colour of the week. It’s a theme that will also spread out onto the field, both football and netball players to wear blue armbands to further acknowledge the theme. MFC Men and Relationship counsellor, Sam De Luca, said the day was all about raising awareness, and reaching as many people as possible on the day. “We want local blokes to start becoming more active about their own health,” he said. “Saturday is going to be about providing more information, and we’ll be doing our best to convey our message to each and every SFNL spectator.”

• BLUE FEVER: Sunraysia Community Health Services Aboriginal health worker Steven Portelli, SCHS health promotion assistant, and Red Cliffs footballer, Rhys Brymer, Mallee Family Care counsellor Sam De Luca, Sunraysia Football Netball League administration officer Michael Iredale, and MFC family relationship services team leader Lisa-Maree Stevens will embrace the ‘blue’ theme of this weekend’s SFNL fixture, with the aim to promote International Men’s Health Week. ABOVE, former AFL footballer and coach Stan Alves addresses participants at a recent ‘Bloke’s Night Out’ event, also held in aid of men’s health. Sam said it was a theme he hoped spectators would similarly embrace, encouraging locals to dress in their brightest and best ‘blue’-themed outfits. “We’d love to see splashes of blue mixed in with the more common team colours,” he said. “And

we’re extremely grateful to the SFNL for their support.” Tomorrow’s blue armband initiative is the latest in a long line of events held as part of International Men’s Health Week, with more than 220 blokes recently braving the cold to attend a ‘Blokes Night Out’ held

Back to business for junior footballers AFTER a successful Inter League Carnival last weekend it’s back to business with Round 9 of Under 16 junior football this weekend. The match of the round will see Irymple play host to Merbein - a do or die game for the Magpies. The Swallows are sitting in second spot on the ladder with six wins while the Magpies are in sixth position with three wins. The incentive is for the Maggies to step up and take the Swallows on and they must win this game if they have ideas of playing in this year’s finals. The Swallows are cruising, having only lost against the top side Wentworth and third side Red Cliffs and one of the reasons they are winning is because they have the leading forward in the competition, Jacob Burford, who has booted 31 goals so far this year. If Merbein has any chance of winning this game it will need to put Burford under wraps. Josh Moritz, Cameron McKenzie, Sam Brinsmead and James Fox are in the best players for the Swallows each week and Magpies coach Paul Makepiece will need to have his top taggers on the job if the Pies are to have a chance of taking the points. Ashley Rowe is having a good season and is a dangerous player on the forward line as is Jack Lambert and Will Lowry but the Pies have yet to find the consistency to continue winning games and should give the Swallows a run for their money.

Co-tenants Mildura and Imperials will meet on City Oval in what will be an entertaining game. The Demons are just in the four after getting out of jail against South last round when they were six goals down at half time only to kick eight goals to one in the second half to get up by 10 points. They will not want to give Imps a start in this game or they will find it hard to play catch up as they did against South. Imps have not set the world on fire this year and are second last on the ladder with only three wins.

LEGENDS

Sunraysia Junior Football League

Mildura is not performing well either and would have to be the most inconsistent side in the competition, but it has the experience and talent in Jahamn Sailor, Josh Rogerson Dylan Murphy and David Kidd, but as a side they cannot put it together. Imps on the other hand does not have the talent of the Dees but does have a team of goers led by Nick Mee, Jackson Collins, Darcy Edgeworth and Ben Stevenson. There will not be much in this game come siren time but the Demons have the experience to see them over the line.

Red Cliffs will host the Eagles on Sunday at Quandong Park and with Robinvale yet to win a game this year it is hard to see them toppling the third-placed Tigers. The Eagles have been steady improvers in past weeks due to a number of their experienced players coming back from the SFNL Under 18s, and coach Glenn Bussell is doing a great job motivating his young side. The Tigers have got plenty of talent in their side and will be far too strong for the improving Eagles. South Mildura will meet top side Wentworth on Sarah Oval. The last time these two sides met South inflicted the Roos’ only loss of the season when they went down by one point in a night game at Red Cliffs. A lot of water has gone under the bridge since then and the Roos have gone from strength to strength while South have slipped backwards. The Bulldogs had every chance of pulling off their fourth win against Mildura when they went in at halftime with a six-goal break only to score one goal in the second half to hand the game to Mildura on a plate. The Roos will not be so generous and I cannot see South in its current form heading Wentworth at any stage of the game. The Roos have a powerful side and with Jay Scadding kicking goals, the Bulldogs will not have the players to stop the Roos recording a comfortable win in this game.

at Red Cliffs Football Club. Coming from all over the district, which also included a bus load from Nangiloc, the evening focused on providing participants with information regarding men’s health, while getting them thinking about their individual lifestyles.

39

While many took advantage of the simple health checks on offer throughout the evening, which included blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar tests, others congregated around the numerous vintage cars and bikes on display, making the event truly a ‘bloke’s night out.’ Arguably the highlight of the evening was an address from former AFL player and coach Stan Alves, who recounted a number of personal experiences, all aimed at reminding those in attendance about the importance of staying healthy. One of the key messages passed on was the importance of making regular visits to local doctors, with a GP capable of identifying problems before they become troublesome. Recent studies have found that men are less likely to visit their GP than their female counterparts, with research conducted by Cabrini Health’s Foundation 49 finding that several male deaths could easily have been prevented with a visit to their doctor. It’s a message that will again be enforced at the footy and netball tomorrow, with more information on International Men’s Health Week available by contacting 5021 7400.

The ‘Pocket Rocket’

IT was a ritual 20 years ago that Mildura’s Shannon Erskine remembers to this day...heading for Mildura’s Eighth Street Basketball Stadium every Saturday night, along with more than a thousand fellow basketball fans, keen to see their beloved Mildura Mavericks chalk up yet another win. Then barely in his teens, Shannon can’t remember ever missing a game. “The stadium was always packed,” he said. “It was hard to find a seat.” Little did he know he would soon be joining his basketball heroes, thereby kicking off one of the longest and most successful careers in Australian senior representative basketball. Shannon, 35, will play his 400th game at South East Australian Basketball League (SEABL) Big V level in a few weeks, joining a select few to achieve that milestone at such an elite level. The humble veteran, and now father of two (with a third on the way), took time out this week to reflect back on those 400 games, and 18 consecutive years of basketball. He recalled his first game at SEABL level as very much a baptism of fire. It was in 1993. “I would have been 18, and it was in Sydney,” Shannon recalled. “I got called up probably halfway through the season for the triple-header weekend. “I didn’t play a lot. The first night I remember getting on in the last quarter and I think we were getting beaten by about 30 points or something. But back then we were pretty new, and the Sydney teams were very strong.” It was the Mavericks’ second year in the SEABL competition. Shannon must have done enough to impress the then Mavericks coach Barry Knights, as he got the call up again the following

That’s Shannon in the ring.

At that time he was their youngest player, and one of the youngest in the entire league.

He ranks the 2005 Mavericks team as the strongest he’s played with. It was this team that made the grand final against Geelong. “We lost in overtime to Geelong, who at that time had won two or three championships within a few years,” he said. “They had a heap of imports, while we only had one, and we really pushed them. It was just a great team. Everyone got along really well all year.” • Continued next page.

Shannon played his 300th SEABL game that same year. He has had many memorable trips away with the team, either by bus or plane, and recalls them as being a valuable part of the game. “The trips away were good, especially when we got to fly, which made it easier,” Shannon said. The bus trips weren’t quite so good. Shannon remembers one weekend when the Mavericks had to play in Bendigo on the Saturday night. and drive straight back to Mildura to play Ballarat on the Sunday. “Bendigo had a good team,” he said. “They were ahead of us on the ladder. We drove down there on the Saturday and won, and then drove back to Mildura. We didn’t get in until four o’clock in the morning, and had to play at 2pm. “The Ballarat boys were sitting here waiting for us while we were in Bendigo, and we came back here and won again. Weekends like that really stand out.” Shannon’s career is littered with achievements, but he lists the Mavericks’ two grand finals appearances as his most valued. It was in the second of those years, in 2005, that he topped the entire conference for threepointer percentages. At a local A-grade level he has countless most-valuable-player and best-and-fairest awards. But that success, and the added exposure it brings, took some getting used to when Shannon first started making waves in SEABL, the second-highest competition in the land. “When I first started it was the excitement of it all,” he said. “It took years and years for it to sink in that this was the level I was playing at.” He still remembers the

In the coach’s words BARRY Knights was coach of the Mildura Mavericks when Shannon Erskine joined the team, and has several memories of his first year. “One of the most vivid from that first year was when we payed in Hobart,” Barry said. “I ended up putting Shannon on Cal Bruton, who was an American who came out and revolutionised the game in Australia. “To put a player like Shannon, who was new to the team, on a player like Cal was a very big learning curve, and I’m sure he would remember that. “He did well and we won the game. I think he played about 15 games in that first year.”

Barry said Shannon’s early years with the Mavericks provided a solid foundation for the rest of his career. “Going into the following season (1994) we had players like Damon Lowery and Jeff Everett and I think his exposure to those players set the tone for his career,” Barry said. “Those were the types of players he was playing against during training sessions. It was a good learning curve and he would have picked up a lot of their little tricks. “Shannon was also good at following instructions. “The big thing about him was he had a passion to improve all the time, and that was important in his development.”

“If you’re doing something you like, these things just come up,” he said. “They’re good, but I didn’t set out to play 400 games.” Similarly, he said he has no specific deadline on his career. He’ll keep playing as long as it feels right. “I just always said, one

stone, he said he’s had a lot of support throughout his career. “I’ve had a heap of family support over the years which has been really helpful. I’ve also had good employers who have let me have days off to go and play, which has been great.”

Brad gets volleyball ‘lessons’ from China, Iran By VINNIE RODI

LOCAL volleyball superstar Brad Mason, 17, has returned home after a stint representing Australia at both the Thailand Junior Volleyball Championships, and the Asian Youth Boys Volleyball Championships, held in Tehran, Iran. Both competitions saw Brad compete against the best volleyball talent in the world, with the 17-yearold saying while he had learned from the experience, his team had been disappointed with their efforts. “When you come up against teams like China and Iran, the skills on show are just unbelievable,” he said. “As a team we had some good periods, but it wasn’t enough against the top sides.” Brad said the team had failed to make it past the qualifying stages of the Asian Championship, after coming up against eventual finalists China and Iran in the opening rounds. “We were placed in a group with China and Iran, which in the volleyball world means we were against powerhouses of the youth competition,” he said. “While it was disappointing to be knocked out early, it was also a learning experience that will hopefully help all of the team, myself included, improve.” Brad said in terms of his individual game, he would have liked to have been “more consistent,” with the youngster struggling with illness. “Like the team I had my periods where I played well, but at the same time I also had games where I didn’t,” he said. “It was definitely harder after Thailand, I was feeling good for the first few days, while most of the team was feeling sick.

This trip saw Brad visit Thailand for a second consecutive year, before heading to Tehran for the first time. He said Tehran in particular had proved an eye-opener. “It’s not what you’d call a loud city,” Brad said. “And while everyone was friendly, they mainly kept to themselves.” Brad said one of the most memorable parts of the trip had occurred off-court, during the final of the Asian Championships. The home country Iran came up against China, with Brad, along with the rest of the team, strongly barracking for the visitors. “China had beaten us in the qualifying rounds, and we were staying in the same hotel as them, so we felt we should show our support and encourage them against the home side,” Brad said. “It wasn’t long before the rest of the crowd started turning on us, and booing us. “Security had to come and stand in our section to make sure nothing happened with the crowd, and while it was exciting, it was also a little scary. “Thankfully nothing happened, and several crowd members actually apologised to us after the match,

which their side won. “We knew they were passionate about their volleyball, we just didn’t realise how passionate.” Brad said he would now turn his focus to Victorian and further national duties, with his main goal to earn one of three scholarships the Australian Institute of Sport is set to award later this year. It’s a scholarship the youngster, who is ranked in the top players nationally in his age group, only narrowly missed out on last year, and one Brad is determined to finally earn. “It’s my ultimate goal,” he said. “I’ve been working toward another crack at the scholarship all year, and between now and the AIS try-out, I’ll be doing everything I can to continue to improve, and work on those areas my coaches feel I need to.” First task will be representing Victoria at the National Titles later this month, before further training with the Australian squad, and finally the all-important AIS tryout. “It’s going to be a hectic few months,” Brad said. “Hopefully I can take everything I’ve learnt from Thailand, Iran, and working with the AIS, and earn one of the scholarships.

WEMEN top fuel drag racer Phil Lamattina has endured a tough 2009/2010 Australian Top Fuel championship campaign to finish third overall. The 2008/2009 Australian champion said this year’s championship was one of the most hotly contested he’d seen. “It was a very interesting season when it came down to a close championship battle between three cars,” Phil said. “The whole way through the season any one of us could have run away with it.” When it came to the final round last weekend Phil, Martin Stamatis and team-mate Phil Read were all in contention for the championship, making

for a massive season finale. But it wasn’t to be for the Wemen driver as Stamatis took the final round and the championship, finishing ahead of Read and the Lamattina Fuchs dragster. “At the end of the day it’s hats off to Stamatis. He had the most consistent car all year,” Phil said. “He didn’t win it convincingly, it was a close championship right down to the final round, but out of the three of us, he had the most consistent year, so he deserved to win.” Phil said he was happy with his team’s effort throughout the season, putting the championship loss down to bad luck and lost opportunities.

“It all started at the first round when we blew the tyre and were disqualified after the fact,” he said. “You need an element of luck, I don’t care what anyone says, and unfortunately luck didn’t go our way this season. “I also don’t believe we had the opportunity to run as quick as we did last year.” Conversely, fellow title contender Phil Read enjoyed several lucky breaks throughout the season. Phil pointed to Read’s recent match-up with Bob Shepherd. “If you look at the last round, Phil Read had a massive failure with the car on the start line, Bob Shepherd had him all but covered, then just before

the finish line Shepherd went across the centreline (meaning disqualification). It’s just things like that.” Phil also hinted at the advantages of having a team-mate in the top fuel championship - Martin Stamatis and Phil Read, who finished first and second respectively are in the same team. “We feel it’s just our car against Jim Read Racing. It’s very frustrating because Darren (Morgan) I believe has got a really good car and a dedicated crew. I just wish sometimes we didn’t have to meet him and compete against him in some of the first rounds,” he said. “I believe he’s competitive enough to help out

against the other teams.” Despite those issues, Phil said he was happy with his team’s performance. “This season, we didn’t have any losses from mistakes internally, so that was a good effort from the team,” he said. Phil said the top fuel category was getting more competitive each year and expected another tough fight in the season ahead. “It’s Darren, ourselves, the Reads - there’s six very competitive cars out there,” he said. “Next year is looking just as tough.” Fellow Sunraysia driver Darren Morgan endured a similarly tough season to finish fifth overall.
