Beating around the bush

You’re never too old for an Aussie adventure... Mildura brothers Bruce (left) and Ray Weir proved that during a recent 6900-kilometre outback odyssey, part of which was spent with Bruce’s daughter Robyn Smythe at Balgo Aboriginal community. The brothers are best known for running Weir’s Dairy in Mildura. Read some of their family history, and their attempt at traditional Aboriginal bush tucker gathering, in next week’s issue.

heoretical interview with new Australian Prime Minister Julia Gilliard... TV interviewer: “Congratulations Prime Minister. Before we start, as we stand here on Thursday afternoon, do you accept that tomorrow will be Friday?” PM: “We have always supported the standard structure of the calendar and acknowledge that the public expect a regular system that provides the rhythm necessary for everyday planning and life structures. We feel very strongly about this.” TV: “So you do agree that tomorrow is Friday?” PM: “It isn’t important whether it is Friday or Monday. What is important is that unexpected changes

don’t interfere with the normal expectations of the public – and this government has a solid record in supporting those expectations.” TV: “But as today is Thursday, surely you can confirm that tomorrow is Friday?” PM: “Everything is relative and whether the next day is Wednesday or Sunday is dependent on where you stand at

E thought this was interesting… especially for those with a penchant for old time rock ‘n’ roll. If you have ever fancied a South Pacific cruise… and you’re a fan of 1950s and 60s music legends like The Delltones and The Drifters, tribute performers like Phil Haley and his Comments from the UK, and Elvis tribute performers like Shawn Klush and Donny Edwards then as they say: “Have we got a deal for you!” ‘Rock the Boat’ is the third cruise from Mick Manov, creator and founder of ‘Blue Suede Cruise’ and ‘Cruisin’ Country’. The on-board entertainment will also include the Buddy Holly Show; The Atomic Hi-Tones; The Straight 8s, Leisa Kerris, Elvis Alive (from Sydney), Adelaide’s Rave On; The Vincents, Phoenix; guest DJ Ashley from Melbourne together with Adelaide’s Tommy Kaye from Six O’clock Rock; and The Party Cats featuring Peter Tilbrook from The Masters Apprentices.

Most intelligent people agree that changes are not required.” TV: “Well then, what day is tomorrow?” PM: “Tomorrow is the next day in our plan to further develop our marvellous country in many areas. We plan to continue providing better health care, reduced debt, reduced unemployment, controlled immigration and to be a world leader in controlling global warming.” TV: “Returning to the question, can you not confirm that Friday is tomorrow?” PM: “Friday is always around. It has been around many times before and will be around again many more times.

he Bank of Life.... Imagine that you had won a prize in a contest and each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for your use. But, this prize has rules, just as any game. The first set of rules are: Everything that you didn’t spend during each day will be taken away from you. You may not simply transfer money into some other account. You may only spend it. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that day. The second set of rules: The bank can end the game without warning. At any time it can say, It’s over... the game is over! It can close the account, and you will not receive a new one. What would you do? You would buy anything and everything you wanted, right? And not only for

Sunday:

Monday:

Which is why we need - as a responsible government - to plan and organise for the future. Not just for tomorrow, but for our children and their children. TV: “Prime Minister, the viewers are waiting for your answer on what day you think tomorrow is?” PM: “We are dealing with bigger issues here. The Friday, Saturday, Sunday thing is not important or relevant to the scheme of things. They need to understand the critical issues and focus on the matters of concern, such as the condition of our nation and how we can continue to develop it so that all may reap the benefit.” TV: “I’m sorry, we seem to have lost the point here again. Are

yourself, but for all people you love, right? Even for people you don’t know, because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself. You would try to spend every cent, and use it all, right?

Actually, this game is reality. Each of us is in possession of such a magical bank. We just can’t seem to see it. The ‘Magic Bank’ is TIME. Each morning we awake to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life, and when

you saying that it isn’t Friday tomorrow?” PM: “The reality is that it is not important what day it is. What is important is how we handle the situation – and my government is handling it with solid policies evolved from the mandate the people gave us.” TV: “But we just want to know if you agree that it will be Friday tomorrow?” PM: “Let’s remain focused here. It is the nation that is important and we stand fast and rock steady in our dedication to the job in hand. In closing, let me say this one more time – we are fully committed to the task and have commissioned a report that will enable us to develop the plans for the future. Thank you.”

we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is not credited to us. What we haven’t used up that day is lost forever. Yesterday is gone. Each morning the account is refilled, but the ‘bank’ can dissolve your account at any time.... often and sadly without warning. SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds today, and for the rest of your life? Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars. Enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think. Take care of yourself, be happy, love deeply and enjoy life! The Mildura Weekly wishes you all a beautiful day filled with fun, excitement, adventure and happiness. Now get out there and start spending!

•  TALKING SAFETY: Mildura Regional Transport and Logistics Cluster project officer, Brendan Moritz and chairman Dennis Tuit discuss the problems with the 17th Street and Benetook Avenue roundabout that can be seen in the background. spent on the route over the past few years. Mr Tuit used a vehicle coming from the George Chaffey Bridge as an example. “First of all, getting into Seventh Street is a problem,” he said. “If you get held up there, you’re trying to take off from what looks to most people to be a slight gradient. “It may only seem slight in a car, but if you’re grossing 64 tonnes that’s a pretty heavy grade to take off from. “Then you get to Eleventh Street, which is probably one of the worst roundabouts in Mildura because it’s got a railway line running through it and is very rough. “Then you come to the 14th Street and Benetook roundabout.

It’s a poorly designed roundabout and should have been much wider. “If you’re going to have a truck route you are trying to keep traffic flowing. Well, you’ve got to slow down to about 20km/h to get around that safely in a truck.” Mr Moritz said this roundabout demonstrated the need for more consultation with the trucking industry. “We actually had meetings with VicRoads during the construction of the 14th Street roundabout as there were a few issues,” he said. The design of the roundabout allowed for trucks to roll over its outer edges, which are lower than the traditional curbs on roundabouts. The technical term for this lower edge is an ‘annulus’.

However, under truck driver training regulations, a person would register an instant fail if he/she drove over the edge of the roundabout. “So we had VicRoads telling us at a meeting about that roundabout that it was designed to be driven over, and yet we had VicRoads training and assessing saying you fail if you do this,” Mr Moritz said. Training and assessing regulations have since been updated to allow trucks to run over the edges of an annulus. But Mr Moritz said the issue, and the solution, indicated the benefits of more consultation. Mr Tuit said the roundabout at Benetook Avenue and 17th Street was another problem area. •  Continued Page 5

MILDURA’S truck route along Benetook Avenue is unlikely to become popular amongst drivers until major changes are made to the majority of intersections along its length. That’s the word from one of the district’s peak heavy vehicle groups – the Mildura Regional Transport and Logistics Cluster. It claims that for many truck drivers Deakin Avenue remains the preferred route, both for safety reasons and because it’s easier, despite the plethora of traffic lights. “If you want to encourage drivers to use the truck route, they have to get a benefit out of it, and for drivers that means getting through as quickly and as smoothly as possible,” the Cluster’s project officer, Brendan Moritz, said this week. “Coming from Adelaide, for example, there’s still no benefit in using the truck route. It’s often easier to go down Deakin Avenue. “From a driver’s perspective the idea of a bypass is to help the flow of traffic, allowing them to get through without too much hindrance.” For years now, Mildura Rural City Council has been promoting the use of Benetook Avenue as a truck route in a bid to decrease heavy vehicle traffic along Deakin Avenue. For vehicles coming from Adelaide, the route takes drivers right into 17th Street off the Sturt Highway before turning left onto Benetook Avenue. Under the plan, the route follows Benetook Avenue to the intersection of Seventh Street and San Mateo Avenue, where vehicles turn right onto the George Chaffey Bridge. But the Cluster’s chairman, Dennis Tuit, said there are serious issues with the majority of roundabouts and intersections along that route, despite the millions of dollars that have been

Labor election plan ‘doomed to failure,’ peak citrus body claims AUSTRALIA’S peak national citrus body used a visit by Federal National Party leader Warren Truss this week to publicly launch a “sustained lobbying” campaign against threats to the citrus industry during the Federal Election. The controversial Murray Darling Basin plan and its sustainable diversion limits, which are expected to call for cuts of between 20 and 40 percent to irrigation water, is high on Citrus Australia Limited’s (CAL) list of election issues. A draft guide of the plan was scheduled to be released at the end of June or early this month, but has been deferred in the wake of Prime Minister Julia Gillard calling the August election. Mr Truss left Mildura this week with a clear message from CAL – that the Federal Election platforms of the Coalition Government would be doomed if rumoured cuts to irrigation entitlements became a reality. CAL chief executive Judith Damiani said the Prime Minister’s election policy of developing regional towns and cities through affordable housing was “admirable, but doomed to failure” if jobs were lost through

•  UNDER NO ILLUSIONS: Federal National Party leader Warren Truss. She said CAL would be canvassing a raft of issues including water, export market access, quarantine, biosecurity reform and workplace relations during the election. “Citrus Australia will be seeking from all parties leading up to the August 21 Federal Election, policies which encourage

industry competitiveness and productivity,” Ms Damiani said. This week’s announcement the Murray Darling Basin Authority plan would be deferred was met with skepticism in many sectors amid claims the Federal Labor Government knew the plan contained bad news for irrigators, which would be potentially damaging in the election. The Authority said “following a discussion of Authority members that, consistent with election caretaker period conventions, it will defer the release date of the guide to the proposed Murray Darling Basin plan. “The Authority understands the significant community interest in what the proposed Basin plan will put forward and is keen to provide stakeholders, irrigators and Basin communities with the opportunity of finding out what the Authority is proposing.” A new release date “would be considered at the end of August.” This leaves many Sunraysia irrigators who have been eagerly awaiting the sustainable diversion limits planned by the Government, in limbo for at least another month.

Forrest appalled by Wong stalling tactics Member for Mallee, John Forrest, is appalled that Federal Water Minister Penny Wong will more than likely withhold a Murray Darling Authority report impacting on the future of irrigators until after the Federal Election, and accused her of snubbing a Murray Regions Futures Conference in Mildura this week. “The reality is she was a no-show because she doesn’t want to reveal the content of the Murray Darling Basin Authority report recommending sustainable diversion limits devaluing the water entitlements of thousands of irrigators,” Mr Forrest said. “She’s ducking the issue. Voters, especially our irrigators in the

Murray Valley, urgently need to know what Labor is proposing to do with their water allocations in this region before the election. “It is very disturbing that so many communities are being held to ransom due to political expedience. “Minister Wong is treating my river communities with the utmost contempt. Get that report out there Penny Wong – stop avoiding the issue.” Mr Forrest said Ms Wong’s absence from the Murray Regions Futures Conference and the withholding of the report into sustainable diversion limits until after the August 21 election smacked of Gillard Labor wanting to avoid controversy at all costs.

Mildura’s heavy transport bypass criticised •  From Page 3 He said a heavy vehicle making a right turn into 17th Street from Benetook Avenue at the roundabout must slow down significantly or risk tipping over. Mr Tuit said this was due not only to the height of the roundabout, but the off-camber road surface - meaning the road slopes away from the roundabout, heightening the risk of tipping. “We know that it was built and designed by engineers and it’s built to VicRoads specifications, there’s no issue there, it’s just that it’s the wrong camber and that’s why there’s now a 20km/h speed limit there,” he said. And this was a roundabout built as part of the designated truck route. There is even a large sign warning of the risk of tipping on the approach to the intersection. “So you have the prospect of

stopping probably eight times on the bypass route,” Mr Tuit said. “Ideally, if you’re going to have a truck route, it needs to have priority to keep it flowing. You’re not going to get that because of roundabouts.” Despite the many traffic lights along Deakin Avenue, Mr Tuit says drivers can often make a trip through Mildura quicker down Deakin Avenue than using the truck route. “With the traffic lights you can gauge the flow a little bit and creep up with them without having to stop,” he said. “Most of your fuel output and stress is from stop to five or 10km/h. If you can crawl up to a set of stop lights, knowing they are going to change, you can keep your momentum going. “You’ll avoid having to change three gears by doing this. For example, you’ll get close to an inter-

section in third and keep going, missing first and second gear altogether, and you’ll miss that total stop which is the hard part when a vehicle weighs up to 68 tonnes. Mr Tuit said at present trucks have to slow down more, or stop, for most of the roundabouts along the designated truck route, particularly at the intersection with 15th Street, given drivers are crossing one of the busiest traffic routes in the district. Mr Moritz said consultation with the trucking industry was the key to a successful truck route in Sunraysia. While commending Mildura Rural City Council for developing a truck route, he said there needed to be more consultation with industry. He said he also appreciated the fact that Council maintained one of the biggest road networks in the State in terms of area, making it a

juggling act in terms of determining which roads received attention and funding. Other areas of concern along the truck route which have been highlighted by the Cluster include the bend of road in Benetook Avenue as it passes the Dahlsens store. Mr Tuit said for a truck travelling towards Seventh Street, the bend in the road was quite tight and had led to several truck roll-overs. The Cluster said any truck route must have more right-of-way intersections for trucks to make them viable, including the two entrance points - off the George Chaffey Bridge at Seventh Street and San Mateo Avenue, and at the intersection of the Sturt Highway and 17th Street. The Cluster’s comments come in the wake of a recent announcement that VicRoads would be conducting more investigations into Mildura’s proposed truck route.

OBITUARY

Robert Seekamp: 1952 – 2010

It was a death that shocked the West Darling grazing country between Wentworth and Tibooburra, and is a loss felt by many. A virtual Who’s Who of the grazing community came from all over Australia last Friday for the Broken Hill memorial service to remember and honour...

Weekly on Wednesday that her husband was just four days off celebrating his 58th birthday when his plane went down during an aerial inspection of the large Woolcunda holding. Federal air crash investigators are expected to take up to six months to determine the cause of the crash. She said that although it was an extremely painful time, Rob was a person who loved life, lived it to the full with many solo and family adventures, and who died doing something he loved – flying.

Angus told the memorial service it had been a tragic ordeal for his mother, himself, his sister and brother Tara and Tim, and lifelong foster siblings Adrian and Josh, but the family deeply appreciated the support of family and friends, Australian search and rescue volunteers, NSW and SA police and SES and many others in the wake of their loss. “Our family has prematurely lost a husband, a Dad and a best mate,” he said, proudly delivering what he could only describe as “a snapshot” of his father’s life.

An only child, Rob Seekamp had spent his growing up years amusing himself on the station. This had included building multistory cubby houses for his dogs. Angus said his father had looked after his dogs meticulously, under the direction of his Dad – ‘Puppa’ – and it was a life-time commitment. He told how the Seekamps tended to give the dogs more boring names than most, and recalled the Mays, Scampys and Jippies, right up to the present generation of pups. Angus said his father had been educated firstly through the School of the Air, with his secondary schooling at Bathurst, where he learnt many things, including woodwork, the bagpipes... and a dislike of rugby. He never lost his love of the bagpipes, and it was a tradition that he got them out to ‘pipe in’ each New Year throughout his life. Rob returned delighted to Woolcunda aged 16, had an intense passion and pride in the land, was a strong believer in conserving it for future generations, and looked forward to the time he could take over from his dad. But along the way there were a few issues that required what Angus described as “the arts of diplomacy, negotiation and/or persuasion,’ starting all those years ago with the Villiers generator incident. It also involved what he called “The John Deere story.” The short version, witnessed

by a Seekamp cousin, Andy Withers, was that the father and son were taking the John Deere to the woolshed for a job, and both men noticed the tyre was flat. Cold patch tube repair kits had just come out, and that was Rob’s first choice. ‘Puppa’ didn’t agree – “those things will never work” – and he went to fetch the reliable old hot patch and press method. As seen through the eyes of Andy, a lengthy and spirited ‘debate’ ensued. The solution was for Carl to use the hot patch method first, with Rob going over the top, roughing up the patch and tube and using his cold patch and glue. The tyre never went flat again. Angus recalled his father had what he called ‘a balanced diet’... this consisted of chops in the morning, cold chops for lunch and chops for dinner... along with a few spuds... “until Mum came along.” He also spoke of his father’s passion for music, Slim Dusty and Dolly Parton in particular... “although there was always some debate as to whether it was Dolly’s singing talents that Dad was particularly passionate about!” Angus said that in the early days of their marriage, his Dad would take his new bride rabbit shooting some nights... but stopped when she became a better shot! • Continued Page 44

Cricket legend to open 125th Wentworth Show AUSTRALIAN cricketing great Glenn McGrath will open this year’s 125th annual Wentworth Show late next month. McGrath, dubbed ‘Pigeon’ by his teammates, is a household name in Australia. A cricketing hero, with a 14-year professional career, Glenn is the most successful Test fast bowler in the world. During the past few years, however, Glenn’s name has become equally synonymous with providing support for Australian women diagnosed with breast cancer and their families through the McGrath Breast Care Nurses. NSW Australian of the Year in 2008, Glenn is now widely recognised as an outspoken advocate for improved services for breast cancer and greater education for younger women around breast awareness. Since the passing of his wife Jane in June 2008, Glenn has been chairman of the McGrath Foundation board and is active in many of the foundation’s activities. This year’s show will be held on the nowtraditional last weekend in August. The dates are Saturday the 28th and Sunday the 29th. Show schedules are now available from a large number of outlets across Sunraysia including the Merbein Newsagency, and the Buronga and Dareton libraries. In Mildura those stocking the schedules, available at $2 each, include Elders, Wallers Bushman Outfitters, C&G, Lloyd Trading and Horseland. In Wentworth get your schedule from the library, post office, drapery, Ruby’s Cargo, Deacon Real Estate, Elders and the Visitor Information Centre. Meanwhile, one of the show’s premier attractions is gearing up for a big year as the thinking caps are firmly applied for the popular, and unique, Wearable Art Competition. Coordinator Marg Whyte says now is “time to get creative.” “The woolpack fabric used for the competition can be used in so many ways,” she says, “from painting, stencilling or dying through to embellishing, plaiting or shredding! “What you can do is limited only by your imagination… and we have had some very imaginative entries in the past. “We’ve been dazzled and intrigued by the creativity shown in the past, and we are expecting no less again this year. “Judging will be be based on the imagination shown by the creator, and those taking up the challenge should be really trying for a high ‘wow’ factor,” Marg advised. This year’s competition will be run in five sections – Avante-garde, Designer and Children’s Fantasia along with special sections for secondary/tertiary students and those attending priamry school.

A bushman and his bagpipes IT was the early 1970s, and the old Villiers generator on Woolcunda Station was as temperamental as it was ancient, often taking ages to get going, and frequently spluttering to a stop for no reason. It didn’t bother station owner Carl Seekamp or his wife Hilary. They were used to it. But their son Robert had just brought his new bride Victoria to the station to start their married life, were living in the shearers’ quarters while their homestead was being built, and a reliable generator was a necessity. Rob could see the need for an upgrade... he had his eye on the latest Honda generator...but his dad stubbornly wanted to stick with the old Villiers. Finally, at wit’s end, a frustrated Rob decided the only solution was to put an axe through the Villiers...family members could only speculate on the ‘discussion’ this caused between father and son... but Rob got his Honda, and it’s still faithfully serving Woolcunda to this day. The generator story was one of several told by Rob’s son Angus, 25, at a memorial service held in Broken Hill last Friday for his dad, who tragically lost his life when the Cessna 172 he was piloting crashed into a lake on the family property on June 21. An estimated 600 to 700 mourners from all over Australia, with the exception of West Australia and Tasmania, packed the Broken Hill entertainment centre to say farewell to the highly-respected grazier, a man who had devoted his life to family and friends, along with a huge contribution to 14 different Australia-wide essential-service groups.

It is one of the most heart-wrenching stories ever told about life – and death – in the Australian outback. The Page holidays just four years later. The Mildura Weekly’s ALAN ERSKINE recently met Page family relatives who travelled

Out of fuel,out of hope ERNIE Page was an English-born mechanic who was determined to provide a better life for himself, his wife Emma and their four children. Fed up with the lack of job opportunities around his home town of Shadoxhurst in Kent, Ernie sent off his application for migration to Australia under what was commonly referred to as ‘the 10-Pound Pom’ scheme. Then he waited. For three years he waited. Ernie had almost given up hope when a letter arrived from Australia House in London, telling him his application had been successful. The family set sail on the P and O liner Orion, and from that day on in 1959, their fate was sealed... except for the couple’s only daughter Judy, then in her late teens and engaged to Englishman John Pilcher. They had migrated too, but married and set up home in Adelaide, where Ernie worked for a year before deciding to spend some time in the outback... as a friend back home in Kent later remarked “chasing rainbows.” He and his family choose Marree, where Ernie worked as a mechanic for the next three years. It was from here, just before Christmas in 1963, that they set off on what was to become their final adventure. It was also in Marree that I spoke with Ernie and Emma’s grand-daughter Avril. Now 42, she told how she and two of her three brothers, Michael, 48, and Ian, 47, had finally decided to travel into the outback to replace the old wooden cross on

the family’s mass burial site with a proper headstone. Avril said that sadly, the trip came too late for their mum Judy, who passed away in 2005, aged 63, after losing a four-year fight with cancer. Judy had last seen her mum, dad and brothers when the family visited her in Adelaide just three months before their ill-fated trip. She was 21 at the time. Avril said her mum had never visited the grave site of her family because of the hurt and the pain it would cause her. Over a beer at the Marree Hotel, and later in an exchange of emails, Avril told me of her emotional journey into the outback, accompanied by her brothers, her partner Keith Wheeldon and their son Jordan, 12. She spoke of the amazing hospitality and friendliness of bush people, of Marree and Birdsville residents who had grown up or worked with the Page family, and who were still emotional as they spoke of the events all those years ago. Avril said she and her brothers (a third was unable to make the trip) had decided in April that they would make the pilgrimage to Birdsville after discussing it often. They particularly wanted to make up a lasting memorial stone, to replace the wooden cross that simply says; ‘The Pages – perished in 1963.’ “Due to its significance in the history of the region, we wanted to let the family know they haven’t been forgotten,” Avril said. “The site is also visited by a few tourists, and

It was Noel, the then driver of the outback mail run, who gave Robert Page a lift to where he met up with the family. • Continued next page

Some of the photographs accompanying this story show a bitter irony... acre upon acre of flood-water only metres from a grave marking the final resting place of a family who perished in the outback sun. It is an event that remains to this day the greatest outback tragedy in South Australian history.

• From previous page It was Noel who provided Avril with the GPS coordinates of the grave. “He is an amazing gentleman,” Avril said. “He is still touched by the events of that day, and still has a lot of bushman in him... he’s off to the Kimberleys in a week or so.” She also caught up with retired SA policeman Eric Sammon, who led the search for the family in 1963. Avril, Keith and Jordan (Avril’s other son Scott, 17, couldn’t make the trip) called in at Marree and then Mungerannie and Birdsville before being taken to the grave site, 80 kilometres from Birdsville, and just seven kilometres off the Birdsville track, by Queenslander Ron ‘Sully’ O’Sullivan, a frequent visitor to the region. On the way, ‘Sully’ showed them Wirripilli Dam, about 30 kilometres from Birdsville, near to where the Page’s car ran out of petrol, and where the doomed family had walked to refill water containers. The turn-off to the grave was 50 kilometres away. “You would have missed the track if you had blinked,” Avril said. “A marker was no longer in place, so it took some time to find the grave site. Jordan spotted the cross first. Flood-water was only 10 metres from the grave... there was so much water, greenery and birdlife. It was so serene and picturesque... it was hard to believe how deadly and unforgiving the outback can be.” Avril went back to Birdsville where she met up with her brothers,

and the following day they returned to the grave, this time accompanied by Birdsville policeman Neil McShane, Peter the Birdsville publican, as well as ‘Sully.’ There they laid the new marble headstone, and mixed up a batch of cement to fix it in

But Robert’s destiny was also sealed when he hitched a ride on the mail truck heading for Marree, joining his family at a roadside stop after seeing the car and trailer coming towards them and telling Noel Glass; “that’s the old man’s car.” Robert jumped on board, and the family of five continued up the remote track towards Birdsville. It was soon after this that Ernie Page made several fatal errors. He mistakenly left the main track and followed another track, apparently left by a geo-survey team who had recently been through the area. By the time he tried to re-trace his steps, it was too late. The car ran out of petrol. The first law of the bush is never, ever leave your vehicle. But Ernie, after initially staying with the car and exhausting food and water supplies, tried to lead his family to safety on foot. Blacktrackers later told the story... when the family initially ran out of water, they walked several kilometres to a windmill and dam they had sighted earlier, re-filled their containers and returned to the vehicle. As Christmas Day approached, Ernie made the fateful decision to once again leave the vehicle. He left a note on the car; “No petrol. Have water for two days. Heading south.” They didn’t know they were walking towards an area known as ‘Dead man’s sand hills.’ • Continued Page 10

High praise for mum’s care IKEY Waddington lived to the ripe old age of 89, a good innings according to her daughter Joyce Gledhill. And Joyce said her mother’s final years at Merbein’s Chaffey Aged Care facility were “very comfortable and happy.” “I cannot say enough about the way they looked after mum,” she said this week. Ikey passed away on July 7, and regular readers may recall Ikey was among the first eight Chaffey Aged Care’s residents to move in in September 2007. She was the ‘face’ of a feature story in our 46th edition marking the occasion – she and her frogs! ‘Ikey and her frogs move in’ was the headline, and her daughters Lois Ralph and Joyce Gledhill are quoted as saying at the time: “Mum decided to move in as soon as the first sign advertising the facility went up by the roadside.” Ikey told the Mildura Weekly there was always one condition on moving into her new home – she had to be allowed to bring along her beloved frog collection. “I had to bring my frogs along… I have 100 altogether,” Ikey said. The only problem was, she had too many to fit in her room. As a result, Ikey generously donated some of her frogs to the Wentworth Club crèche. Speaking this week, Joyce said her mum had enjoyed her time at the Chaffey facility as she paid tribute to the facility, and its staff. “I felt I should say something,” she said. “Mum was really happy there. She loved the staff and they looked after her well. “It was a very good environment in which to spend her last few years.”

THE Merbein Masonic Lodge, in conjunction with the Grand Lodge of Victoria, has contributed $1000 to Merbein’s Chaffey Aged Care facility. The donation has come after hard fund-raising, and follows a $6000 contribution made earlier this year, with the announcement made last Saturday, July 17, at the group’s annual ceremony to install a new chairman and presiding officers. Usually closed to the public (as was the case for the business end of the night), the group did open its social activities to ‘outsiders,’ before making the announcement. The money will be used to help Chaffey Aged Care purchase much needed equipment, with the funds a subsidy grant provided by the Victorian Freemason’s Charitable Foundation in recognition of the Lodge’s fund-raising efforts. This is the third consecutive year the Merbein Lodge has donated money to the facility, with the Grand Lodge in Melbourne also offering dollar for dollar subsidisation. Local members are hoping to raise a further $1000 before the end of the year.

Out of fuel, out of hope The family walked for more than 30 kilometres, in something of a semi-circle, sometimes doubling back on their tracks, in the scorching heat. What they didn’t know was that in another direction, just a few kilometres from the car, lay a water-hole. Early on Christmas Eve, Birdsville local Phil McKenzie made a wrong turn while on his way to deliver supplies to some rabbit trappers, came across the abandoned vehicle, read the note and raised the alarm.

cy joined a Royal Australian Air Force plane, SA police and blacktrackers in two fourwheel drive vehicles in a widespread search. Clancy was making his final run for the day, about 4pm on Christmas Eve, when he spotted a body under a coolibah tree and directed ground crews to the scene. Searchers found the bodies of Ernie, Emma and the two youngest boys under the tree. Clothing and boots had been discarded. Robert’s body was found the next day. He had staggered another kilometre before succumbing to heat exhaustion. Police made the decision to bury the family where they lay, and since then the grave site has been marked by the cross they erected, and a circle of rocks, about 80 kilometres from Birdsville, and just seven kilometres ‘off the beaten track.’ Now, thanks to Avril and her family, the gravesite is more appropriately marked, and joins a handful of grave sites that mark the final resting place of inexperienced adventurers who have perished in the harsh Australian outback. • FOOTNOTE: Avril told the Mildura Weekly she will never forget the kindness of all the people who helped her. Mildura’s Laurie Kalms, owner of the Marree Hotel, found her family a bed despite being booked out. Gordon Dadleh of Marree, a former school mate of Robert, who gave her a tape recording of Slim Dusty singing a tribute to the Page family... she had never heard the song... Jimmy Crombie, an aboriginal stockman who worked with Robert at Clifton Hill... she and Jimmy were both in tears as they spoke about Robert. And many more... the police, ‘Sully,’ Noel Glass, Birdsville locals. “I’ll be back to thank them all again,” Avril said.

It promises to be an exciting new teaching frontier for a man who has spent the best part will remember him as principal of Merbein West Primary, arguably the ‘greenest’ school

Steve jets off to meet By GRANT MAYNARD STEVE Milverton thrives on challenge and this week he jetted off to take on what promises to be the most testing trial of his professional career. The former Merbein West Primary School principal has left his family – wife Ros and twins Ashlee and Nicholas, 12, – in Australia for the foreseeable future to take up the post as director of the Cambodia International Academy, just outside the nation’s capital Phnom Penh. It won’t be his first experience of education in Asia, but it will be the first time he has been in charge. A leadership scholarship through the Victorian Education Department has allowed Steve to travel and immerse himself in the education experience of nine Asian countries before, including Thailand and Vietnam. But this will be altogether a new experience. He has never previously held down a full-time position, and never ‘in the big chair’. And, for that matter, never in Cambodia! But Steve has a friend who has worked in the country, and who has been a valuable source of a few tips to get him started. Steve is set to steer the development of the CIA through some challenging and visionary times and the buck, he acknowledges, will stop with him. The CIA presently has 550 students representing 30 nationalities, and a teaching staff of 90 from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the United States. It presently caters for students from Years 1 to 9 equivalent, Steve says, to Victoria’s Prep to Year 8. He will oversee the expansion of the school to include the more senior Years 10 to 13, equivalent to our Years 9 to 12. Steve will also preside over a shift in emphasis for the curriculum, from largely American-influenced learning to include more Cam-

RISING TO THE CHALLENGE: Steve Milverton is now in Cambodia to take on the most challenging post of his teaching career. He is no stranger to Asian education as this story in our November 8, 2007 edition, ABOVE RIGHT, shows. His work in environmental education has been well-documented in the ‘Weekly. The tearsheet, RIGHT, from March 2008 is a story about a school-wide recycling effort at Merbein West. His experiences there may come in handy if he decides to introduce similar learning in Cambodia.

bodian subjects particularly history and the arts. Steve explained the school was established by a group of Cambodian expats who had been educated in America and returned to their homeland as businessmen, riding the wave of modernisation sweeping across the nation. One of the prime movers is big in the country’s burgeoning telecommunications revolution, and the other in the motor trade with more than 150 employees. Both are typical of many of their countrymen, Steve says, with a high regard for

the value of a good education. “It started with six students in a rented house,” Steve said, “and in the past five to six years has grown rapidly to become what it is today – a modern school with big plans for the future.” He said the purposebuilt CIA of today is wellequipped with large, airconditioned classrooms, a comprehensive computer lab and other facilities including two swimming pools, a soccer pitch and an outdoor performance centre capable of catering for the entire school population.

Both the men behind the school are typical of their countrymen, Steve says, with

a high regard for the value of a good education. “They have no trouble

seeing the link between education and success in life,” he said. Steve is under no illusions about the scale of the job he is taking on. He says the CIA, as a private school, is dramatically different to its State-run counterparts, being much more modern. Despite Cambodia’s increasingly rapid transition to a more modern lifestyle, Steve said the country generally remained a comparatively poor, Third World country. “The schools generally reflect that,” Steve said. And, he said the nation was still coming to terms with the legacy of the Pol Pot years, and what amounted to the genocide of its intellectuals. Steve says it is his hope that he make some impact and play a role in returning education to a wider crossection of country’s youth, and in that way help shape the nation’s progress through learning. Steve is happy that the basic literacy and numeracy skills being taught at present will stand the students in good stead. “Those core skills are the same the world over,” he said. “What I want to see is an expansion of the school’s humanities curriculum, and a greater focus on Cambodia’s history, arts and culture.” He points to the temple city of Angkor, not far from the school and a contemporary of those built by the Aztecs, as a perfect example. The country has a long, and rich history, he says, that deserves to be studied. The school language is English, something Steve is confident will smooth his transition from principal at Merbein West to director of the CIA. He explained he will have both a principal, and deputy principal, to help him implement the big changes planned for the academy in coming months. • Continued next page

Cambodian challenge The many wonders of Angkor There are two great complexes of ancient temples in South East Asia, one at Bagan in Burma, the other at Angkor in Cambodia. The temples of Angkor, built by the Khmer civilisation between 802 and 1220 AD, represent one of mankind’s most astonishing and enduring architectural achievements. From Angkor the Khmer kings ruled over a vast domain that reached from Vietnam to China to the Bay of Bengal. The structures one sees at Angkor •  From previous page In all, Steve applied for as many as eight Asian posts, and was accepted for four. His first choice job disappeared after the school he was hoping to lead was amalgamated with several others and the position became redundant. There was some irony in that situation, he acknowledges, con-

today, more than 100 stone temples in all, are the surviving remains of a grand religious, social and administrative metropolis whose other buildings – palaces, public buildings, and houses – were built of wood and are long since decayed and gone. Conventional theories presume the lands where Angkor stands were chosen as a settlement site because of their strategic military position

and agricultural potential. Alternative scholars, however, believe the geographical location of the Angkor complex and the arrangement of its temples was based on a planet-spanning sacred geography from archaic times. Using computer simulations it has been shown that the ground plan of the Angkor complex – the terrestrial placement of its principal temples – mirrors the stars in the constellation of

sidering amalgamation is what is planned for his beloved Merbein West in the near future. He expects his family will be able to visit for holidays during the early part of his tenure in Cambodia and, all going well, maybe move over to live in the country some time in the future. That, he says, is a little up in the air at the moment, but he considers

it would be a great learning experience for his children. And will he be introducing any of the leading-edge ‘green’ curriculum he is known for at Merbein West. “Well, at least there will be no problem finding enough water over there,” he said pointing to the country’s annual rainfall of 1500 millimetres (60 inches). “But we will have to wait and

Draco at the time of spring equinox in 10,500 BC. While the date of this astronomical alignment is far earlier than any known construction at Angkor, it appears that its purpose was to architecturally mirror the heavens in order to assist in the harmonisation of the earth and the stars. Both the layout of the Angkor temples and iconographic nature of much its sculpture, particularly the asuras (‘demons’) and devas (‘deities’) are also intended to indicate the celestial phenomenon of the precession of the equinoxes and the slow transition from one astrological age to another. During half-millennia of Khmer occupation, the city of Angkor became a pilgrimage destination of importance throughout South Eastern Asia. Sacked by the Thais in 1431 and abandoned in 1432, Angkor was forgotten for a few centuries. Wandering Buddhist monks, passing through the dense jungles, occasionally came upon the see. It could be interesting to set up an aquaponics system over there. They have some fish species that are not as sensitive to water quality and temperature issues as our native Australian fish are.” Steve would also like to set up some sister-school relationships between the CIA and other schools from around the globe, including Australia.

awesome ruins. Recognizing the sacred nature of the temples but ignorant of their origins, they invented fables about the mysterious sanctuaries, saying they had been built by the gods in a far ancient time. Centuries passed, these fables became legends, and pilgrims from the distant reaches of Asia sought out the mystic city of the gods. A few adventurous European travellers knew of the ruins and stories circulated in antiquarian circles of a strange city lost in the jungles. Most people believed the stories to be nothing more than legend however, until the French explorer Henri Mouhot brought Angkor to the world’s attention in 1860. The French people were enchanted with the ancient city and beginning in 1908 funded and superbly managed an extensive restoration project. The restoration has continued to the present day, excepting periods in the 1970s and 80s when military fighting prevented archaeologists from living near the ruins. Modern technology, he says, has shrunk the world and made it so much easier for students to keep in contact with one another, and to share learning experiences and their culture. “A lot of what happens will depend on what I find when I get there.” And that, he says, is the exciting part!

We’ve owned three or four caravans in the 30 years we’ve been together, so we’re no stranger to getting out on the road.” It’s a trip that has allowed the pair to experience the sights and sounds of the Murray, a route they personally chose, with Sue saying the chance to dine at local cook Stefano de Pieri’s restaurant was a major contributor to them picking the route. “We’ve seen Stefano’s television shows in Queensland, and have always wanted to come and try his food,” she said. “And the scenery along the river is always something other ‘grey nomads’ talk about, so we really wanted to experience that for ourselves.” The pair have already hosted two happy hour events since arriving on Wednesday, at the All Seasons Caravan Park and the Calder Tourist Park, with three more events scheduled before they depart next week. Caravan enthusiasts can enjoy a free beer and a chat with Tony and Sue at Mildura’s Desert City Caravan Park tomorrow, the Gol Gol Caravan Park on Sunday, and the Red Cliffs Caravan Park next Monday, July 26, with all three happy hours to kick-off from 4pm.

Mildura Weekly - 23/07/10

www.milduraweekly.com.au

Bob’s ‘time SUNRAYSIA’S renowned vintage tractor wizard, Bob Twyford, realised one of his biggest dreams earlier this year – the establishment of his Vintage Farm Machinery Museum in Red Cliffs. Bob has been collecting tractors for more than 10 years and now has well over 100 tractors and other forms of vintage machinery on his 40-acre property, making it one of the most unique collections in Australia. As his collection grew, so too did the idea of establishing a museum to showcase it. That idea became a reality at Easter this year when Bob fi-

nally opened the doors to his sprawling museum. “I describe it as living history,” he explained. “When you see a tractor, a 1920 model or so, and it’s a goer, it’s running, that’s actually living history. You can actually touch that tractor and visualise what life was like back then. “Back in 1920, they had that tractor out in a paddock working. “And if they worked 30 acres in a day, that was a big day. Now they work 300 or 400. “And when you fire up a Bulldog, it’s like it’s alive

when running... like a prehistoric dinosaur, and you have to treat it as if it’s alive as well or it will bite you, don’t worry about that.” In a departure from the normal ‘museum’ concept, Bob’s version allows visitors to see machinery in almost all forms of completion. From wrecks to finished products, which is all part of the plan. “I’ve been to other museums where there’s a big shed where you walk up and down and that’s it,” he said. In contrast, Bob has several fully restored tractors in an undercover ‘formal’ shed, dozens outside under cover

Recently the Mildura Weekly showcased Bob Twyford’s meticulously-restored Case Cross vintage tractor in our popular My Ride page. This week we delve a little deeper into the effort that went into bringing the tractor back to life...

It’s a Case of tractor history THE 1917 Case Cross tractor was built at a pivotal, if not revolutionary time for farmers. Most were still using horses and carts to work their properties, and the challenge for the few tractor companies around at the time was to convince farmers not only to buy entheir product, but to shift to an en tirely new way of working. To many farmers, tractors were foreign. Simply starting them and using the basic controls were a major obstacle. And the monsters that resembled the very first tractors didn’t help. “The first machines they made over in America were great big prairie tractors,” Bob said. “They were virtually a copy of a steam engine tractor, but with a four-cylinder motor. “Farmers were saying they couldn’t handle it. And the average farmers in America at the time probably had farms similar in size

to ours, they were like our blockies, so nobody was buying tractors.” As detailed in last week’s My Ride, Case was the first to react to the problem and brought out a series of compact tractors, known as the Case Cross, utilising a sideways or ‘cross’ mounted engine to make the vehicle shorter. But the sheer size of those first primitive prairie tractors wasn’t the only problem. After years working the farmland with horses, farm ers needed to determine which tractor would meet their requirements. So tractor salesmen at the time needed to speak on their terms. While ‘horsepower’ has long been a measurement of an engine’s output, farmers back then couldn’t relate to the term, despite using horses on their properties. So tractor companies came up with the idea of rating them as plough tractors, using

and more pieces scattered throughout his property. “Whenever someone comes in here they can see one tractor or implement totally restored, one half restored and pulled down, some out in the paddock, some in the shed, and that is the idea,” he said. “You can have a good look at the restored tractors in the main shed and then you can go for a walk and see what I’m currently working on. You could be here for a couple of hours because there’s so much to look at. Bob admits while his beloved Lanz Bulldogs (he has

about 20 of them) are certainly one of his passions, his aim with the museum was to make it as diverse as possible. “What I’ve tried to do, apart from my Bulldogs, is not lock myself into one thing,” he said. “I’ve got a good collection of just about every tractor that was made pre 1950s.” The collection includes many brands which long ago drifted into obscurity including Titan, Ronaldson Tippett (there were only ever 270 made), an Australian-made Jelbart, Vickers and the list goes on. And, the majority of them

are in running order as well. And it’s not just occupied by tractors. There are numerous stationary motors, including a rare 1908 Richard Hornsby stationary engine. Bob says it was important to include stationary engines given they played such a vital role at the turn of the last century. “A lot of properties never had power so they had a stationary engine for power. And when they weren’t generating power, they were probably used to grind up grain to feed horses, or to pump water up to the house. They were the centre of everything.

“Tractors also served different purposes when they weren’t out in the fields. They had belt pulleys on them to cut wood and for other purposes, so they served an important role as well.” With his museum now a reality, Bob says his next aim is to complete his collection of Lanz Bulldogs. There were only ever 20 different models manufactured by the Germans-based company and Bob owns 13 of them. “I’ve got about 20 Bulldogs, but some of them are the same models, so I want the other seven,” he said.

“I’m going to concentrate on getting this set of Bulldogs, even if it means I have to sell two or three of my other tractors, I’ll do it.” So with acres of vintage tractors and other rare pieces of machinery, an almostcomplete collection of Lanz Bulldogs and more than 100 tractors, when is enough going to be enough? “My vision is to have the museum set up with a full collection of Bulldogs and a traction (steam) engine,” Bob said. “Who knows if that will happen or not. But it’s good to get out of bed of a morning

and say, ‘Righto, let’s get into it’. Because if you haven’t got a vision, you’ve got nothing.” Bob’s museum is in Azolia Street, Red Cliffs. There is a vintage truck on the Calder Highway near the entrance to Red Cliffs giving directions. Alternatively, fliers are available at the Mildura Visitor Information Centre.

It’s a Case of tractor history ‘furrows’ as a measurement, which up to that point had been dug with horse-drawn ploughs. “If you said this is a two, four or six-furrow plough tractor, a farmer would think, ‘well if that’s a six-furrow plough tractor, that would take 12 draught horses to pull that size plough,” Bob said, explaining how tractor companies at the time helped farmers gauge the machine they were considering. Bob’s Case is rated as a six-furrow tractor, which is quite powerful for its size. Tractors soon began popping up on farming properties across America, and Australia, with names like Fordson, John Deere and Case becoming commonplace. There were soon a plethora of tractor manufacturers, but John Deere and Case (now Case International) are among the very few to survive today. The very first tractors didn’t come with tyres. They simply ran on steel wheels. That did have drawbacks compared with their rubber

counterparts in terms of grip and driver comfort, among other issues. If an owner wanted tyres they had to order wheels as well, because the standard wheels were not designed to hold tyres. This is evidenced by the pictures of Bob’s Case in this story. And it was tyre manufacturers who had to supply the wheels for their tyres, meaning you had well-known tyre brands such as Goodyear and Dunlop making tractor wheels. The Case Cross was based around a fourstroke petrol engine, which started on kerosine. It boasted 15 horsepower at the motor and featured two forward gears (high and low ratio), and reverse. As tractors evolved throughout the 1920s manufacturers such as Case eventually moved to the conventional in-line design engine, paving the way for the modern tractors we see today. • Case restoration a labour of love.

BOB Twyford has well over 100 vintage tractors, many of them rare, but he considers his Case Cross something special, which is why he went to the lengths he did to source and restore it. He picked it up at a clearance sale in Rochester about four years ago. “It was owned by another tractor collector at Rochester, Lindsay Nelson, who also made silos,” Bob said. “He was a collector and was going to restore it, but he didn’t get around to it. I ended up buying it at a clearance sale in a wrecked state. “He’d put a new radiator in it but that was it. It was in pretty bad shape. It must have been sitting in the scrub somewhere because there was a lot of rust.” Despite its condition, Bob loaded it up and brought it, and several boxes of parts, back to his Red Cliffs property for a ground-up restoration. But he didn’t start seriously working on it until several weeks ago, in preparation for last weekend’s Junction Rally at Wentworth. Bob said one of the big-

gest challenges in restoring a tractor in such a dilapidated state was a lack of information. “I didn’t have any workshop manuals or anything like that because nobody around here has got one of these,” he said. “I virtually worked off

the

You’d see a photo, study it and say, ‘well, that’s where the air cleaner went, that’s how the clutch went on’, that type of thing. “Any part that was missing I either had to source or get made. “A fair bit of fitting and turning work went into it for the bushes and bearings. “Work also went into the clutch, which is an unusual design and had many parts missing from it.” Bob had to nut out many of the finer details himself, such as the linkage system for the throttle, as any pictures

Workshop puts spotlight on autism HEADSTART Intervention Services, a South Australianbased organisation that specialises in early detection and intervention for children suffering from Autism Spectrum Disorder, is inviting local professionals and families to attend a five-day workshop in Adelaide. To be held from Monday, August 2, to Friday, August 6, the workshop, presented by arguably Australia’s leading Autism expert, Dr Robyn Young, will showcase firsthand the practical applications of early detection and intervention, with the aim to equip participants with enough knowledge to implement a program either at home, or through their organisations. It’s an opportunity that former Mildura resident, and now senior Headstart behavioural therapist, Melissa Rodi, is strongly encouraging locals to get involved with. “Coming from Mildura, I know first-hand how limited services have been in regard to Autism,” she said. “This is an opportunity to learn

techniques, and walk away with a tailor-made program for your child.” Called SPECTRA (Structured Program for Early Childhood Therapists working with Autism), the program is based on Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), the world’s leading behavioural therapy.

based on extensive research into what works, and how to get the best results for each individual child. The program also aims to “empower” parents, provid-

“We’ve done extensive research into our therapy, so we know that while it’s not a cure for Autism, it certainly makes a difference.” – Melissa Rodi. ABA is based on the principle that influencing a response associated with a particular behaviour can cause that same behaviour to be shaped and controlled. SPECTRA is the next step, developed by Dr Young, Carrie Partington and Tayla Goren

ing knowledge so that they themselves can run the program from home. “ABA is a therapy that has been around for some time, and has proven quite adept at helping Autistic children develop,” Miss Rodi said. “This is the next step, taking

everything ABA does well, and adapting it to achieve the best results.” Miss Rodi said in her fours years as both an ABA and SPECTRA therapist, she’d seen incredible results. “We’ve done extensive research into our therapy, so we know that while it’s not a cure for Autism, it certainly makes a difference,” she said. “I’ve seen children develop from limited to no-speech, to suddenly participating in full conversations, making eye-contact, and generally improving their concentration and compliance skills.” Cost for the full five days will be $1500 for parents, $1200 for professionals, and will also include a SPECTRA manual and DVD, and support in developing a program. Parents for children under five may be eligible to claim funding for the workshop through the Government’s FaHCSIA initiative, with Headstart a recognised provider. More information is available by contacting Headstart on (08) 8373 4531.

he did find on the Internet were mostly wide shots of the entire tractor, rather than close-ups of specific parts. The aforementioned rust had rendered the steel front wheels unusable. About half of the wheels were rusted out, meaning Bob had to cut them in half and re-make that section of wheel himself. He rebuilt the motor and painted the tractor himself, including the pin striping. He selected the colours based again on pictures he found on the internet and in books, ensuring the tractor was brought back to its former glory in every way. Bob estimated he put in 500 hours of work to bring the Case back to life. He said he was often amazed at the workmanship of the Case factory as he worked on the vehicle. One example is the Case emblem, which is an eagle placed above a globe. Every single component on the tractor has this emblem worked into the metal, and this attention to detail was achieved without the modern technology of today’s factories.

There will be prize money up for grabs for first, second and third in each category in what has been dubbed the 2010 ‘From Woolpack to Catwalk Extravaganza’. Marg explained that contestants purchase a woolpack from either Wallers in Mildura or Ruby’s Cargo in Wentworth

and then “go to work”. “There is about 3.5 metres of fabric in each woopack and a heavy duty sewing machine is not required. “The woolpack fabric sews well with traditional machine needles and threads,” Marg said. “The competition has proved very popular in the past, with both contestants and the show crowd… and with

cricketing great Glenn McGrath opening the show this year, maybe that great game can be used for inspiration.” This year’s show will have two wearable art parades. The first will be on Saturday at 1.30pm and midday Sunday. For more wearable art information contact Marg Whyte 5027 0240; Chris Larwood 5027 0220 or Fiona Mackie 0418 543384.

They make great pets. They’re small and intelligent, they love a cuddle or playing games...they can be toilet-trained, are quick to learn basic commands, they’re growing in popularity...

And yes, they eat like pigs! THE newspaper advertisement was brief and to the point... miniature Companion Pigs for sale – $400 each. The Mildura Weekly had to find out out what sort of person would breed and raise miniature pigs... and what type of person would want them for a companion. Mallee farming couple Gordon and Samantha Trigg have the answers, after going into the miniature pig-breeding business last year. It’s more of a hobby than a business, keeping the couple and the three children who still live at home on their toes...especially with a menagerie of animals that would put ‘Old McDonald’s Farm’ to shame. The Trigg’s farm 10,000 acres of cereal 30 kilometres south of Ouyen. They also raise sheep and cattle. They’ve got some working dogs, alpaccas to guard their lambs, six horses, a goat, a cow that thinks it’s a horse and a baby kangaroo. And the pigs. Samantha is a selfconfessed animal lover. She’s Melbourne-born and raised, and met hubby Gordon after they were introduced by friends from nearby Nandaly. They’ve been inseparable ever since. The Trigg farm has been in the family for more than 100 years. “The first time I came out here I knew it was where I wanted to be,” Samantha said. “It just felt like I was home.” Once she had settled into farm life, Samantha started gathering the animals that are now very much a part of the family. As far as animals are

concerned, not much surprises her, but she was amazed when she saw the Alpaccas in action. A native of South America, they are widely used all over the world as guard animals for flocks of sheep. Their natural enemy is the fox, the bane of sheep farmers, and they are fearless. They have been known to run down

a fox and kill it. “If I hadn’t seen them in action I wouldn’t have believed it,” Samantha said. Anyway, back to the pigs. Samantha had read up on the miniature companion pigs over the years, got in touch with a farmer down Healsville way for more information, and decided late last year to

buy a breeding pair. They were in luck. The breeding pigs normally sell for up to $3500 a pair. But the farmer they had been dealing with became ill, and offered Samantha the pigs for $250 each. Samantha remembers travelling through the back blocks of Healsville to ‘the middle of nowhere’ to collect the pigs. Back home they fitted right in. Gordon built some pens in the barn to house them, and they did what pigs do best...eat, and breed. The farmer told them all about pig pregnancy... three months, three weeks and three days. Sounded a little far-fetched, but sure enough, near enough to right on time, along came the first litter - seven tiny piglets. Six of the litter survived. Samantha adver-

tised them, and the calls started coming in. “There was a lot of interest,” she recalled. “One of the piglets went to Adelaide, and we delivered another one to a Ballarat couple. They’re becoming more popular as pets.” Owners can expect the pigs to grow to around 50/60 kilograms, about the same size as a kelpie dog. Although they like to wallow in mud, and eat virtually anything, pigs are actually one of the cleanest animals on the planet. They can be toilettrained like dogs, adapt easily to indoor living, are affectionate if people spend enough time with them, love the company of other pigs or humans, and can be taught basic ‘tricks’ such as sitting, spinning or jumping small hurdles.

Australia marks 30 years of IVF AuSTrAlIAN women are waiting longer to seek help having children, and underestimating the number of couples who will require reproductive assistance to conceive, new research has found. The findings released last month coincided with the 30th birthday of the first IVF baby born in Australia, Candice reed. Australia’s national infertility support group Access Australia has used the 30 year milestone and the research findings to urge Australian women to ensure their fertility doesn’t ‘fall off the radar’ as couples wait longer to have children. The Access Australia research found ‘being able to conceive naturally’ was the primary concern for just 11 per-

cent of women of child-bearing age – reducing to a mere eight percent among those who have not had children. These find-

ings come in spite of data that reveals that one in six, or 15 percent, of Australian couples now require assistance from a fertility specialist to help them conceive. “Despite the success of IVF in Australia during the past three decades, the research findings reiterate the need for more awareness of fertility risk factors,” CEO of Access Australia, Sandra Dill, said. “We know women face challenges in finding ‘Mr right’ and juggle career responsibilities before considering having a child, however all men and women need to be aware that age is still the number one preventable cause of infertility.” Women under 35 who have been trying to conceive naturally for 12 months without suc-

cess should seek the assistance of a fertility specialist, while women over 35 should seek medical advice after six months of unprotected intercourse. Since the birth of Candice reed 30 years ago, more than 85,000 babies have been born in Australia through Assisted reproductive Technology. Candice and her parents John and linda reed welcomed the efforts of Access Australia and the Fertility Society of Australia to increase community understanding of infertility. “IVF was quite a daunting concept for us back in 1980, and I’m sure it’s much the same for couples contemplating IVF today,” Mrs reed said. “But it changed our lives, and gave us Candice for which we will be forever grateful.”

Mildura Rural City Council offers a number of resources residents can use to be involved in their community’s future and encourages everyone to make use of them at any time of the year.

Council works in many diverse communities with differing needs. To ensure these needs are heard and addressed, Council employs a dedicated Community Liaison Officer and engages with advisory groups that work in various communities across our large municipality. The advisory groups communicate with Councillors and staff on a regular basis to discuss community needs. In conjunction with these advisory groups and progress associations, Councillors and key staff attend four forums annually throughout the municipality. This commitment involves a lot of travel, but many outlying communities appreciate the opportunity to raise and discuss issues of interest, which is pleasing. We all know Mildura is a wonderful place with many of the ingredients that make a great place to live. Through your involvement, we can work together to make this the most liveable, people friendly community in Australia.

‘Queens of Country’ to make a right royal visit...

www.milduraweekly.com.au

By VINNIE RODI THE McClymonts are arguably the first ladies of Australian country music, with their easy-listening tunes and home-grown image catapulting them to superstardom. It’s a look and feel that has won the New South Wales vocal harmony group national fame, while also clinching Golden Guitar awards and numerous other accolades. And it’s success sisters Samantha, Brooke and Mollie are aiming to replicate across the globe, spending the past few months travelling the US playing alongside the best in the business, while promoting their first album ‘Chaos and Bright Lights,’ a record that enjoyed tremendous success in Australia, winning three Gold Guitar awards. “It’s been an incredible experience,” Samantha said. “To be in a country where no one knows who you are or what you’re about is extremely scary. “At the same time it’s refreshing to play our music to people who have never heard it before.” And while trying to break into an unknown music scene is the their main focus, Samantha said they hadn’t forgotten fans closer to home, with the McClymonts set to make a return visit to Australia. “Travelling back and forth between the US and Australia is certainly going to be a theme,” she said. “There are still so many towns in Australia where we haven’t played, and we owe it to our home-grown fans to keep coming back.” Mildura will be one of the stops, with the McClymonts to appear at O’Malley’s Irish Tavern next Thursday, July 29. “I personally have a number of close friends living in Mildura,” Samantha said. “And it’s always great to catch up with people on the road. “One of the biggest short-falls

“It’s always funny to be in the US and talk to industry professionals. The instant they learn you’re from Australia, and you’re a country act, they immediately assume you know Keith Urban.” of this business is that you don’t get an opportunity to see friends because you’re always touring, recording etc. “Tours like this give us an opportunity to catch up, and Mildura has always been a town that’s supported us.” The tour will also help promote the girl’s new album ‘Wrapped Up Good,’ which debuted at number one on the Australian Country Music Charts, and also claimed the number two position on the mainstream ARIA charts. It also won the girls their fifth Golden Guitar at this year’s Australian Country Music Awards for ‘Vocal Collaboration of the Year,’ achieving Gold status 10 weeks after its release.

Samantha said while the girls were busy promoting their second album in Australia, in the US they were just starting to promote their first. “It can get confusing at times,” she said with a laugh. “Half the time when we turn up to a gig, we’re like ‘which songs are we playing today?’” Samantha said the success of the second album had been a pleasant surprise, especially with a few years passing between releases. “We were a little worried people may have forgotten us,” she said. “After the success of the first album we immediately turned our attention to the US, and as a result took longer to start the second record. “Thankfully it’s a gamble that’s paid off, with Wrapped Up Good receiving rave reviews in Australia, and our first album attracting attention in the US.” Recorded in Nashville, Samantha said ‘Wrapped Up Good’ was “the next step” in the girls career, adopting a more up-beat and “rock” tempo than their previous record. “We wanted to make a positive, warm, spontaneous album,” she said. “We’re all in a good place at the moment, both in our personal lives and professionally, and the album reflects that.” It’s a career that has ecplised anything the sisters could have imagined, with the rise to fame coming in a short time. The daughters of a butcher and hairdresser in Grafton, NSW, Samantha said music had been a passion for all three girls growing up. “Brooke (the eldest of the trio) was probably the one to kick it off,” she said. “She was always pestering our parents to take her to singing lessons and competitions, and it was only natural that Mollie and I followed suit.” Some 15 years later and the trio are close to following in the foot-

steps of Australia’s most successful country music export Keith Urban, with Samantha saying he had paved the way for groups like themselves to make it in the big time. “It’s always funny to be in the US and talk to industry professionals,” she said. “The instant they learn you’re from Australia, and you’re a country act, they immediately assume you know Keith Urban. “It’s something we’ve tried to egg on a bit at times, but Keith is certainly an artist who has done amazing things, and made it easier

for a trio of girls from country NSW to come here and try and forge a career.” Samantha said that while cracking the lucrative US market was the main goal, for the time being the McClymonts were simply excited to be home. “It’s going to be great getting back on the road, and playing to a home-grown crowd,” she said. Tickets for the performance are $35, and are available by either visiting O’Malley’s prior to the night, or at the door.

Robert Seekamp: 1952 – 2010

A bushman and his bagpipes • From Page 7 He described a great family life growing up, with their Mum and Dad taking the family on exciting adventures around Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Canada. Rob got his pilot’s licence at an early age, and flew to many locations around Australia. He had three trips to the mecca of aircraft enthusiasts, the Oshkosh Air Show in Wisconsin, USA. Later he did many trips to various parts of Australia by motorcycle after joining the Ulysses Motorcycle Club. His adventurous spirit was also brought out when Lake Woolcunda filled – for the first time in his lifetime – in 1989, with Rob first organising a yacht to learn to sail, and then windsurfing competition with friends and neighbours. When the lake filled again this year, and after visiting Tara and Tim in Adelaide and going on a kayak expedition at Port Adelaide, he returned home to proudly show off his latest ‘toy’ – a three-person kayak. Along with station work, travels and recreational pursuits, Rob Seekamp always found time for volunteer com-

munity work, and earned great respect for his contribution to isolated student education, School of the Air, bush children’s hostel group, Broken Hill AgFairs, Pastoralists Association of West Darling, NSW Farmers’ Association and council chairman, picnic race committeeman, Telstra rural and remote grazier representative, fire brigade captain and volunteer, and as a member of various motorcycle and aircraft clubs and organisations. “Dad did all this voluntary work to improve services to the people who shared his love of living in the Western Division,” Angus said, also describing to the memorial service some of the ‘lighter’ moments when his father probably received more recog-

nition than he wanted. “As far as we know, Dad is the only person booked for speeding across the Nullabor... driving a 1980s Falcon while towing a caravan and a car full of kids,” he said. “He is also the only person we know who was fined for flying over the top of a pod of whales in the Great Australian Bight on his way to a Kalgoolie conference... and also the only person we know who ran over a goat on his motorbike without getting bucked off.” Repeating the family’s grateful thanks to everyone for their support, Angus said his Dad would have been touched and humbled by the number of people at his memorial service, and, probably for the first time in his life, speechless.

Grease has been the word for more than 40 years, capturing the hearts of generations of teenagers. St Joseph’s College will put its spin on the much-loved musical next month, with two of its stars, Ross Chisari and Stephanie Strange, hoping the production will be the start of bigger things to come...

Stars on the rise WHEN St Joseph’s College students Ross Chisari and Stephanie Strange, both 17, think of their futures, it’s with similar ambitions. Ross sees himself pursuing a career in musical theatre, singing, dancing and acting his way across Broadway stages, travelling the world and performing to big crowds. It’s a dream similar to Stephanie’s, with her eyes set on becoming Australia’s next top actress. And both youngsters are well on their way toward a future in showbiz, after appearing in the Melbournebased production Starbound 6. An initiative of ‘Launchpad Productions,’ the show aims to showcase up-andcoming performers from around Victoria. It’s an experience that saw Ross and Stephanie experience a taste of ‘Broadway,’ with Ross landing one of the lead roles, an incredible achievement considering he was auditioning for the first-time. “It was a big surprise to be named as a lead,” he said. “It was the first real ‘acting’ role I’d gone for, with my interests prior to that music, especially playing the saxophone.” Ross and Stephanie were part of a group of 69 performers to appear in the production, the only two from Mildura, and the experience is one neither will forget. “That kind of stuff doesn’t happen to kids from Mildura,” Stephanie said. “So to get an opportunity to audition was huge. “To get on stage and perform as part of that group was even more amazing.” It’s an experience, and sub-sequent expertise, the pair will be looking to pass on to fellow students, and cast mates, next month, when they play two of the leads in the St Joseph’s latest production.

• GREASED LIGHTNING: St Joseph’s College will put its spin on one of Broadway’s most loved musicals next month, bringing ‘Grease’ to life at the Mercy Theatre. The production will feature the talents of budding performers Ross Chisari (Danny) and Stephanie Strange (Rizzo), with the pair hopeful the show will be the start of promising showbiz careers.

And they won’t be taking on just any regular roles either, with the school to put its spin on one of Broadway’s all-time favourites.

Grease has “been the word” for nearly 40 years, with the musical still a favourite amongst today’s generation. The themes of love, friendship and teenage rebellion are still relevant, with the production one that Stephanie, who will portray head-strong ‘Rizzo,’ can relate to. “Grease is set in high school, and centres on a group of students enjoying their final year of school,” she said. “As a Year 12 student I can certainly relate to that.” Ross, who will take on the role of Danny Zuko,

made famous by John Travolta, said he was looking forward to the challenge of portraying one of the most recognisable characters in musical theatre. “It’s a big role to take on, and Grease is one of those musicals that everyone loves,” he said. “There’s going to be a bit of pressure to put on a show that resembles the Grease people know and love, and hopefully we can do it justice.” Based on the original 1971 musical, St Joseph’s production will feature many of the songs and characters audiences love, whilst

also featuring a number of surprises. Director, and St Joseph’s drama and English teacher, Jade Kemp, said that while the production would resemble the movie in many ways, there would be a few notable exclusions. “There’s no ‘You’re the One that I Want’ or ‘Hopelessly Devoted,’ which I think will disappoint some audience members,” she said. “But there are a number of great songs some people may not have heard, which give our ensemble cast a chance to shine. “It’s still the Grease peo-

ple love, with the same storyline.” To be staged at the Mercy Theatre, the production will run across three days, with the opening on Thursday, August 19, and the final show to take place on Saturday, August 21. Tickets are available from St Joseph’s College reception - $15 for adults (group bookings of 10 or more will see tickets reduced to $13), and $10 for students and concession card holders. Ross and Stephanie said they hoped their roles would be the next step toward successful careers. “To many people it may seem like just another school production, but for me it’s an opportunity to get on stage and perform, and do something I really love,” Stephanie said. And what does life after school, and Grease, hold for the pair? For Ross the next few years will see him graduate from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAPPA), which has launched the careers of some of the country’s most successful performers, including Hugh Jackman and Lisa McCune. Stephanie on the other hand has aims to be accepted into the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA), an organisation that shaped the careers of Mel Gibson and Sam Worthington. “Who knows where the future will take me,” Ross said. “You have to have a dream and goal in life, and mine is to take the stage.” More information is available by telephoning 5018 8000.

As the Sun enters Leo, get clear on what you need to discuss and the ideas you have to share with others. With Mercury also in Leo, this is the ideal time to pitch your ideas to interested parties, create an advertising campaign, and create or update your website. Jupiter turns retrograde in Aries, so you may need to spot those lucky breaks yourself and make the most of them through your own efforts. They’re no longer a given. As Saturn moves into Libra and your home zone, the emphasis is on family affairs and discovering more about your roots and ancestry. It’s also the time to take greater responsibility for any issues that need healing, especially those that may be longstanding. Jupiter turns retrograde in your career zone, so you need to work even harder to make the most of any lucky breaks. Don’t wait for them. Generate them yourself and you’ll stay successful and happy! You get a positive boost and feel in a much stronger position to organize your life, make changes, and get those creative projects off the ground. Mercury is encouraging you to blow your own trumpet and show off your talents. It’s time to advertise yourself in no uncertain terms. Saturn moves into Libra and your communication zone. As this area is also associated with mental patterns, this is your chance to watch them in operation and change what isn’t working. The good news is that Saturn moves out of your sign and into Libra. It won’t return for another 29 or so years, so you can now breathe a sigh of relief. It will inhabit your personal financial zone from this week until about 2012, which means you need to take responsibility for this area of life. The more willing you are to perfect your skills and talents and realize your own true worth, the more you will flourish.

Saturn moves into your sign once again and is here to stay until 2012. You have a wonderful opportunity to bring your best and brightest dreams to life, but it will take work. You’ll probably feel a lot more serious about life - and about yourself, too. But in reality, it’s all a question of balance. Jupiter turns retrograde in your relationship zone and squares Pluto on Saturday, so you and your partner might seek change at a grassroots level. Your career zone is in focus as the Sun brings a burst of positive energy your way. You could find yourself in the spotlight whether you want to be there or not. This is a good time to give presentations, advertise your brand, and promote yourself. Jupiter turns retrograde in your work zone, so taking the path of intuition will reveal your luck for the foreseeable future. The more you listen to it, the more fortunate you will be.

Aaron James THE Sunraysia Motor Sport Club is building a reputation as a breeding ground for top-level off-road racers, collecting numerous national and State accolades over the years. This week’s My Ride showcases the technology behind these off-road monsters. Aaron James’ Nissan-powered Pro Lite buggy is an example of the vehicles raced at some of the top levels in Australian off-road racing. It’s built around a chromoly Australianmade Razoback chassis powered by a Nissan VQ35 V6 motor. It’s the same motor Nissan’s Maxima passenger sedan comes out with standard. The only work that has been done to it is a different engine management system, different intake and different exhaust system. Together those modifications allow Aaron to race over rough terrain at up to 200km/h, revving out to 7000 rpm before the shift light reminds him to change gears. However Aaron spends much of his time just under the 7000 rpm mark, as it was enough to propel him through the Finke Desert Race’s notorious halfmetre whoops at 150km/h earlier this year. Not surprisingly for a race-bred buggy, it’s not what you’d call economical. It travels 2.5km per litre of fuel. All that power is transferred through a six-speed sequential Albins gearbox, the most expensive single component on the entire vehicle. It’s the same gearbox used by United States racing legend Robby Gordon in the Hummer he campaigns in the Dakar Rally. The buggy is suspended almost 400mm off the ground by two shocks at each corner of the car. The buggy also features a steering brake, which is the blue lever next to the sequential gear lever in the rightmost picture, The steering brake allows drivers to ‘help’ their beasts into tighter corners before pouring the power on again.

But rather than the best of both worlds, our drive of the Cayenne Hybrid shows that while it is good at both fuel economy and performance, it shines at neither. Instead of the claimed 8.0 litres per 100km combined fuel economy, our short road test of the Cayenne S Hybrid – taking us out of Brisbane to surrounding hills – could muster only an indicated 15L/100km, although it must be noted that the drive included plenty of climbing. The Cayenne Hybrid should make a better fist of stop-

its V8s. A harsh racket is an intrusion in this wellappointed cabin where you expect the refinement of a luxury vehicle. When you get off the power it’s the electric motor’s turn to be noisy as it regenerates power to the 288-volt battery under the floor of the luggage area.

The petrol engine also kicks in at a standstill if battery power drops below a certain level, because even with the Cayenne stationary, the battery still has to power the power steering, air

The grinding-like sound is first heard as you press the brake pedal and continues when you release it and continue to coast. This is the motor working in its generator mode, but again the noise is unexpected in a vehicle of this calibre and with a starting price of $159,900.

Spare tyre location in hybrid, Hybrid motor noise and throttle feel

light throttle, the Cayenne is propelled by the electric motor, but anything more than a light squeeze on the throttle fires the internal combustion engine to assist. The Hybrid has an E-boost button in the redesigned console that when pressed, lightens the throttle action and holds the Cayenne on electric power for longer. We even felt it shifting

conditioning, brake booster and other functions of normal driving. Once underway, the Cayenne S Hybrid delivers strong acceleration with the combined efforts of the petrol and electric power plants urging you on.

All three of the Cayenne models feature heightadjustable air suspension as standard. The two lower spec vehicles, the entry level V6 and diesel, will ride of steel springs with air as an option.

The V6 engine is a bit noisy – and it’s not a nice noise like that of Porsche’s flatsix cylinder engines or even

Even without this clever function, the Cayenne belies its 1995kg (Cayenne V6 manual) to 2240kg (Cayenne S Hybrid) mass to give a truly rewarding driving experience on a mountain road. The new model feels lighter and more agile than its predecessor, with quick steering and flat handling.

The heavier Hybrid wants to push through corners more than the Cayenne S V8, but its dynamics are still exceptional for a large SUV. An issue when driving the Hybrid in give and take conditions is the sensitivity of the throttle. It picks up quickly in stop-start city traffic, and when on the open road and in the hills, its pick up is sharp when the drivetrain coasts in sailing mode off the throttle and getting back on it snaps back in to action. This can catch you out when easing back on the gas coming out of a corner. The feeling is reduced by manually holding a lower gear, but that gets away from the fuel saving ideals of the hybrid drivetrain. Sailing mode is unique to Porsche’s parallel hybrid system which switches off and disconnects the combustion engine when coasting. The brakes too are sensitive, and their willingness to bite takes a bit of getting used to as well. This wasn’t evident in either of the V8 Cayennes we drove, including the Turbo with its larger diameter discs. All E2 Cayenne variants have improved brakes over the first generation model, with ceramic composite discs now available as an option on all models for the first time. None of the niggling gripes of the hybrid apply to the Cayenne S and Cayenne

It leaves no reason to question the company’s claims of a 4.7 seconds zeroto-100km/h and there’s no need to back off in the curves as the chassis and massive 20-inch low-profile tyres do an excellent job of managing the weight and body roll.

E2 Cayenne still performs commendably off road. The short demonstration we saw showed that the improved electronic systems, including off road mode traction control, hill descent control and height adjustable suspension, allow the Cayenne to cover steep and rutted terrain with relative ease. With such great performance from the $147,900 Cayenne S and efficiency of the $104,500 Cayenne Diesel, it’s hard to think of a reason to buy the more expensive Cayenne S Hybrid at $159,900.

while worldwide, including the US where they don’t get diesel engines, the company is expecting only 15 per cent of total sales. There are those people who like the warm and fuzzy feeling of driving a hybrid and those who like to be seen driving one. For these buyers the Cayenne S Hybrid’s dash gauges give a constant readout of how much energy they are saving and regenerating, and Porsche has even put a ‘Hybrid’ badge on the front mudguards where other model have no designations.

Waters primed for return to racing

JUST two weeks after crashing at almost 200km/h, suffering a concussion and collapsed lung, Sunraysia superbike rider Josh Waters could take to the track again tomorrow morning. Josh crashed on July 7 while practising at Willow Springs Raceway in California for rounds six and seven of the AMA American Superbike Championship. The accident and resulting injuries meant Waters missed round six, which was held last weekend. But his condition has improved over the past week to the point where he feels he’s ready to race again. Waters has been in the United States since the accident and been in phone contact with his family in Mildura. His mother, Julie, spoke to him on Wednesday and said his spirits •  SPEED: Josh Waters on his way to winning last year’s Australian Superbike Championship, ABOVE, and RIGHT during this year’s title defence. are high and he’s ready to get back on a bike again for round seven of “They’ve got his two bikes pleted about 20 laps of the circuit, meanwhile has already taken to the championship at Laguna Seca ready for practice Saturday our and was lapping about a second the track at Japan’s famed Suthis weekend.

Caitlin narrowly misses basketball bronze LOCAL basketball sensation Caitlin McLachlan has narrowly missed claiming a bronze medal at the recent Under 16 National Basketball Titles held in Logan, Queensland, with her Country Victorian team mates finishing fourth. It was a tough affair for the youngster, with Caitlin’s team going down 68-48 in the bronze medal match against New South Wales. It was a disappointing finish for Caitlin, who demonstrated great form in only her first State representative stint. Caitlin proved early she had what it took to play against the best talent in the country, and after a slow start eventually finished with 67 points at an average of 8.4, and an impressive 30 rebounds, including 18 in attack. The highlight of her tournament came against Tasmania, with the youngster keeping the scorers busy with an impressive 23-point game. Unfortunately it was form Caitlin struggled to carry into the bronze

medal game, scoring only one point, along with three rebounds. Another local sensation, Jack Saunders, also competed at the event, with his side performing well in the opening rounds before falling away at the business end of the competition due to illness. The Under 16 Country Victoria boys eventually finished 10th, beaten by South Australia in the final game. Jack was a force in attack for his side throughout the tournament, amassing 85 points at an average of 10.5 per game. He was also prominent in defence, with 24 rebounds, proving the difference several times throughout his side’s championship campaign. And his highlight of the tournament? It didn’t occur on the court, with the youngster approached by current Australian Boomers’ assistant coach, and legend of the game, Shane Heal, who wanted to congratulate him on his excellent shooting throughout the tournament.

Merbein in all or nothing battle for fourth THE fight for a top four spot will continue this Sunday, with Round 13 of the Sunraysia Junior Football League to offer plenty of ladder-defining action. For Merbein, this week’s game against fourth-placed Mildura is a must win, especially if the Magpies want to take part in the upcoming finals series. The Demons are also only just hanging on, passing a big test last week defeating the Tigers by 22 points. The Pies are six points behind the Demons on the ladder, and must win on Sunday to have a chance of taking fourth spot. The Demons will secure a finals berth with a win, with plenty on the line for both teams. This is a Grand Final for Merbein, with the desire to play finals sure to add an extra spark to this contest. Merbein are a tall side, and will use that height to full advantage, with key position players Will Lowry and Ashley Rowe in impressive form, and the inclusion of Lewis Makepiece also sure to give the ‘Pies added pace. Mildura are a slick side who can move the ball quickly, with Lachlan Cumming, Paul Johnson and Jamahn Sailor all in top form, and with Dylan Murphy, Lucas Martin, Cameron Gunn and Tom Lanyon roaming the packs, the Demons are going to be a hard side to beat. This game is a toss of the coin, but with the Maggies hitting their straps, and with the added incentive of playing in finals, they should win in a close game.

Robinvale take on Imperials, with the Eagles recording its first win of the season last week against South Mildura. The Eagles have demonstrated significant improvement recently, and are a strong chance of earning back-toback wins this weekend. The return of top-age players from the Under 18 and SFNL competitions have lifted the Eagles, with Imps similarly gaining experience with the return of its older players. Both sides are capable of getting over the line, with the Eagles to continue its winning form.

Irymple, after its big win over ladder-leaders Wentworth last week, are showing they are serious contenders for this year’s flag. Up by 18 points at halftime, the Swallows seemed supremely confident of taking the points, before a ‘Roos fightback saw Irymple down by one point at three-quarter time. The Swallows then kicked four late goals to eventually claim the points. Irymple will look to cement its premiership favourite status against South Mildura this week, who with only four wins for the season don’t look like upsetting the confident Swallows. Irymple have strength

across the ground, and will be too big for the Bulldogs. Cameron McKenzie continues to dominate, as does Sam Brinsmead, Jesse Marciano and Jeff Ladd, and apart from Jacob Chisari, Ethan Goldsworthy and Damon Duffield the Bulldogs simply won’t have the players to counter the all-round ability of the Swallows. Red Cliffs will host Wentworth, and on current form the Tigers will be outplayed by a bigger and more determined Wentworth. Coming off its second loss for the year, the ‘Roos will be out to show why they are still the team to beat in the Under 16 Division. The Tigers matched it for half a game against Mildura, before its backline again let them down in the second half. The ‘Roos will exploit this, and will give the Tigers something to think about come finals. The Tigers are currently sitting third, with a loss to Wentworth and a win to Mildura to see them drop to fourth. Nathan Jenkins, Ben Howard, Ed Buffon, Darcy Barkla and Dylan Tyres were serviceable players for the ‘Roos last week, with Dan Murphy-Clark booting three goals, while the Tigers were best served by Gary Barton, Kieran Bell, Beau Riordan, and Ben Miller. For the Tigers to win this game they need to tighten their backline, and need to play one-on-one footy instead of chasing kicks. The overall strength of Wentworth will see them bounce back after a narrow loss to Irymple.

Cycling for club championship

THE quickest cyclists in Sunraysia will take to the road tomorrow for the annual Mildura-Coomealla Cycling Club Championships. The 2008 winner, Kevin Tankard, is expected to be one of the riders to beat according to former winner and club member Michael Murdoch. “He’s probably the form rider at the moment,� Murdoch said. “He has been away in Europe doing a bit of riding while on holiday, so he’s done some miles recently.� But Tankard won’t have it all his own way, with a host of challengers ready to cause an upset. “It all depends on the tactics that play out on the day,� Murdoch said. “If the tactics allow, there might be a couple of dark horses that might get up. “It could be Richard Hale, or maybe even Mark Phillips depending on what happens.� Both the senior and junior championships will be held tomorrow afternoon, starting with the senior race at 1pm around the popular Riverside course, near Riverside Golf Club. Senior riders will complete eight laps of the 10-kilometre course in about one hour, 45 minutes. Juniors, who will start about a minute after the seniors, will complete three laps of the course. Murdoch said the club has received a fresh injection of junior riders in recent years, which bodes well for the future of the sport in Sunraysia. “There’s a good crop of kids coming through,� he said. “I think the club has probably the greatest number of juniors it’s had for about 15 years, so it’s looking very positive. “We’ve also got quite a few junior female riders which is unusual for a lot of clubs.�

•  BIG REWARD: The winner of this year’s Mildura-Coomealla Cycling Club Championship will have their name added to the club’s new, and unique, trophy, held here by former champion Michael Murdoch.

Robinvale revved up for motocross THE Robinvale and District Motorcycle Club’s (RDMC) motocross series reaches the halfway mark this weekend. The fourth round of the series gets underway on Sunday and will feature some of the best junior and senior riders from both Sunraysia and surrounding areas. Riders are expected to come from as far away as Bendigo and Balranald to compete in the event •  ON THE THROTTLE: This is just some of the action spectators can expect at the fourth round of the Robinvale and District Motorcycle Club’s motocross series this weekend.

Ryan Grayling, Jason Wood, Ty Rayfield, and Kyle Wilcock have been among the quickest senior riders in the series so far, but the fresh injection of talent from outside the district could see some new names at the top of the order. Sign-on and scrutineering is from 7.45am to 8.45am. Rounds five and six of the eight-round series will be fought out on the one weekend with a double-header on Saturday and Sunday, August 28 and 29. The final two rounds will be in September and October. RDMC’s motocross circuit is about seven kilometres south west of Robinvale on Shaggy Ridge Road.

The trick for Gramos is to impress Nike scouts

61

By VINNIE RODI GRAMOS Gashi’s skills with a soccer ball are nothing short of spell-binding, and are enough to capture the attentions of even the most die-hard Australian Football League fan. It’s those same skills that are now captivating soccer enthusiasts across the globe, with the 19-year-old former Merbein resident on a mission to make his professional aspirations a reality. Gramos, who is currently living in Sydney attending university and playing with his school’s representative side, is in the driver’s seat to earn a place with the United Kingdom’s prestigious Nike Academy, which has helped launch the careers of many young talents since forming in 2009. Entered in the Academy’s ‘The Chance’ search, the competition encourages unsigned soccer talents from around the world to create ‘fan pages’ on Facebook, upload videos, and then campaign for support. It’s all about the numbers, with the top ‘liked’ players to be the first to get noticed by Academy scouts. The next few months will see Nike actively seek the “finest undiscovered football talent” in the world, with only eight players from 40 participating countries, and literally thousands of entries, to earn a trial opportunity. Those eight lucky players will then spend one season playing under the eyes of scouts in the English Premier League’s ‘reserves’ competition, while also receiving elite-level training run by both Nike and the English Premier League. Only four footballers from Australia and New Zealand will make it through to the next round of try-outs, which will see 100 players from around the globe relocate to the United

Gramos said that earning an opportunity with the Nike Academy would almost “guarantee” a professional career. “If you make it into the Nike Academy then the sky’s the limit,” he said. “I know that even though I’m in with a great chance, it’s still a long shot. “The only thing I can do is keep trying to get support, and • GOING FOR GOAL: Former local Gramos Gashi is only one step just hope the scouts think I have away from being accepted into the Nike Academy in the U.K., what it takes.” participating in the academy’s world-wide talent quest.

Celebrations the target as...

Shooters aim for big 50th celebration By BEN PISCIONERI

Mildura Pistol Club was Tuesday, July 19, 1960. Peter said the club’s facilities in those formative years were a far cry from the modern facilities now. “When I joined in 1968, the clubhouse was in a tin shed - and I mean it was literally a tin shed with a chain and padlock,” he said. Mildura Pistol Club was based near Mildura Golf Club until the early 1980s, sharing the site with Mildura Rifle Club, before it was forced to move to its current location in Magnum Avenue, Koorlong. “Back in 1979 we had a high river, and at the time the Mildura rubbish tip used to be down off the bottom of Cureton Avenue, down

Throughout those years the number of events and disciplines conducted by the club has grown dramatically. Back in the 1960s competition was fought out in Mildura over five different categories. Now there are more than 15. Peter said that in terms of member numbers, the club reached its peak before the move to Koorlong, reaching about 80 members. He said the establishment of a second pistol club in Sunraysia in the 1980s put a dent in membership numbers, given shooters had two clubs to choose from. However it hasn’t stopped the club building a reputation as a

THE 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games was the trigger for a new form of sports shooting in Victoria - pistol shooting. Mildura Pistol Club was one of many shooting clubs to emerge following those Olympics and will this weekend celebrate its 50th year, providing a chance to look back how the sport started in Victoria and the achievements of the Mildura club. One of the club’s longest-running members, Peter Griffin, said that up until 1956, pistol shooting was illegal in Victoria. “Pistol shooting first started in Australia over in Tasmania,” Peter explained. “In 1955 there were only two pistol shooting clubs in Australia - one in Tasmania and one in Adelaide.” Victoria was forced to legalise pistol shooting the following year given it had won the right to host the 1956 Olympic Games, which included pistol shooting. So either pistol shooting was out of the Games that year, or the Victorian Government had to act and legalise it - the Olympic Games won. A few years later, Mildura Pistol Club was born. “A lot of pistol clubs started up, particularly in country areas, around the 1960 mark,” Peter said. • SHOOTING STAR: National and Oceania Champion, and Beijing “In 1960, the Mildura Pistol paralympian Seb Hume in action, TOP, at Mildura Pistol Club range, and Club was established down at what Seb’s pistol of choice, ABOVE. is now the Mildura Landfill site, alongside Mildura Golf Club’s sec- near where the brickworks are near breeding ground for some of the the Murray River,” Peter said. best shooters in the world. ond tee.” Concerns over pollutants enThey include Beijing paralympiHe said the club was started by an enthusiastic group of local resi- tering the river from the nearby tip an Seb Hume, a national champion dents, some of whom were mem- meant a move to the current landfill and reigning Oceania champion, bers of the Mildura Rifle Club, also site, forcing Mildura rifle and pistol and Mildura Pistol Club captain Les clubs to move.

squad while Bryan Wilson is a former Olympic and Commonwealth Games shooter. Club president Geoff Hume said the Mildura Pistol Club punches above its weight compared to other larger centres in terms of its competitors and facilities. “You could safely say we’ve got a reputation as one of the best ranges in country Victoria, if not Australia at the moment, outside of Olympiclevel facilities,” Geoff said. Pistol shooting is a sport people can take up from as young as 12-years-old and there doesn’t appear to be an upper age ceiling. “I’ve in the Mildura Pistol Club for 42 years and I’ve said that I’ll easily get to 50 years in this sport, provided I survive that long,” Peter said. “It’s one of the few sports in which your body doesn’t deteriorate,” Geoff said. “And if your eye-sight goes, you buy special glasses. As long as you can stand up, you can shoot.” There are numerous categories of shooting from air pistols to the more high powered pistols. Competition takes place over varying distances. Shooters must hit as many targets as they can within a certain number of shots and in a specific period of time. Mildura Pistol Club hosts events every Sunday and Tuesday night, with the exception of Christmas Day. It also hosts several major State-level events throughout the year. People interested in taking up the sport can either contact Geoff on 5022 1715, Peter on 0409 538 367 or visit the club’s website at www. mildurapistolclub.com.au. The club will hold a dinner tomorrow night at the Edge Hotel Motel to celebrate its 50th year. It will be followed by a shoot on Sunday, with an invitation to all past and current members to attend.

Shooting secrets SO what are the keys to becoming a successful pistol shooter? “The main principles are disciplining yourself, controlling your body, your movements, your mental philosophy, your level of concentration and then on top of that you have to control a pistol, have a shot go off and still have the weapon steady afterwards,” Mildura Pistol Club president Geoff Hume said. Peter Griffin, a member of the club for 42 years, said fitness and breathing also played major roles.

“There’s a large degree of fitness that comes into it,” Peter said. “You hold your breath for 10 or 20 seconds. You’re concentrating on your sights, meaning you can’t breathe. If you’re breathing, you’re moving. “It’s also a matter of having your body balanced. “When you get really serious, you’d be working on your heart beat,” Geoff said. “Trying to shoot between heartbeats. It’s amazing stuff.”
