WENTWORTH Shire residents and ratepayers go to the polls tomorrow to elect a new councillor. It is a by-election, the result of the former Wentworth Shire and Mildura Rural City Councillor, Sue Nichols, being forced to choose one municipality over another. Previously, Cr Nichols had been Australia’s only councillor serving on two municipalities in different States. She resigned from the Wentworth Shire in September this year after being forced to choose between her positions by new Victorian Government legislation that prohibits councillors serving on more than one council, or working for MPs. Following her forced resignation, the Shire had no option but to stage tomorrow’s by-election to fill the vacancy. At the time of her resignation Cr Nichols said of the situation: “Quite frankly, had it (the legislation) been brought in at the end of my term, or previously, I

It might come as a surprise to voters to learn that Cherie Ribarits is Steve Heywood’s niece, and that he is sitting Councillor Don McKinnon’s brother-inlaw. Food for thought when considering how the election result could impact on the dynamics of debate and decisionmaking in the Council chamber.

Houseboat mooring breakthrough By BEN PISCIONERI

HOUSEBOAT and tourism operators dependent on Mildura’s riverfront have finally had their prayers answered with work set to begin on long-awaited mooring facilities opposite the Ornamental Lakes Park. The $366,000 project includes a 110-metre long strip of mooring facilities stretching from the Mildura Wharf towards the George Chaffey Bridge. It will include mooring bollards and a 2.5-metre wide concrete walking path allowing much easier and safer access to houseboats. Mildura Rural City Councillor for Tourism, Festivals and Events, Mark Eckel, said it was hoped construction would take place after the traditionally busy Christmas holiday period, but before Easter, in a bid to minimise disruption to holiday makers and houseboat operators. Councillors are expected to vote on a preferred contractor at this month’s Council meeting, paving the way for the project to proceed. The only possible delay could be the wait for $45,000 in Federal Government funding for the project. Without the Federal funding, Council’s contribution of just over $58,000 and $233,280 from Marine Safety Victoria, would be enough to fund a 90-metre strip of mooring.

• ‘SITE’ FOR SORE EYES: Mildura Rural City Council’s infrastructure support officer, Ivan McKenzie, Mildura Councillor for Tourism, Festivals and Events Mark Eckel and manager for Assets and Development Allen Morffew study the plans for the new mooring site and TOP, Years of houseboat mooring near the Ornamental Lakes Park has caused significant degradation to the river bank, leading to safety concerns. While the Federal funding is all but guaranteed, it won’t mean the project doesn’t go ahead if, for some reason, it is not received. “Council has said this is a very important project and it needs to go ahead,â€? Council’s manager for Asset Development, Allan Morffew said this week. “If for some reason Federal funding is not available, then we’d go back and look at it and see if we’re happy with 90 metres or if we need to find more funding somewhere else.â€? If the planned 110-me-

tre mooring goes ahead it would be enough to easily accommodate about nine houseboats. The plans also include access for the disabled via a ramp which would be installed in place of what is currently the Ornamental Lakes stream outlet, in the middle of the proposed mooring site. Cr Eckel said once completed, the mooring facilities would compliment what is already a unique tourism precinct. “The new houseboat moorings and riverfront path and disabled access, with the Riverfront Performance Venue, play-

ground, picnic tables, and the close proximity of the marina and city centre are creating a premier precinct which will be the envy of houseboat destinations throughout Australia,� he said. Cr Eckel said houseboat traffic represented a healthy cash injection for the central business district. “With today’s discerning visitor, the convenience of close proximity to our city is vital for fuel, groceries, entertainment, hotels, wineries, restaurants and tours,� he said. Temporary houseboat mooring facilities have

been made available near the Mildura Rowing Club lawns, to ensure houseboat traffic is still accommodated during the construction phase. Mildura and Wentworth Houseboat Association Inc. president, Geoff Thomson, said he was pleased to see action was being taken to improve conditions at the popular mooring site. “We support the mooring site, which is something the Association has been waiting on for quite some time,â€? Mr Thomson said. “It will allow access to the central business district for our customers, and private houseboat operators, in a safe manner and from an appropriate location.â€? While pleased to see progress being made, Mr Thomson said the Association would ideally prefer a 150 metre mooring facility, rather than the 110 metres proposed by the Council, an issue that was raised during early discussions. “We’ve indicated to Council our support in putting together a submission to other authorities to gain further funding to achieve this,â€? he said this week. The Mildura and Wentworth Houseboat Association Inc. has long been calling for better mooring facilities, based on both safety and convenience. • Continued Page 18

It’s ‘Mildura in the middle’ as our community leaders and others debate the pros and cons of a casino that may never go ahead...

We’re tearing ourselves apart for nothing: Crisp By BEN PISCIONERI OUR community is needlessly tearing itself apart debating plans for a casino it knows nothing about. This is an increasingly common view held by some of Sunraysia’s political and industry leaders, including Member for Mildura Peter Crisp and Mildura Tourism boss Rod Trowbridge. Mr Crisp this week described the scenario as a Mexican stand-off between the would-be casino developers and the Brumby Government – with Mildura stuck in the middle. “On one hand the Premier is saying he’s waiting for the community to give its bipartisan support,” he said. “But the community don’t have any concrete information on which to make a decision, as the proponents won’t release their plans until the Brumby Government says there’s definitely going to be a casino license granted. “So we’ve got this Mexican stand-off, and debate on an issue without substance.”

The man behind the Mildura casino concept, former Federal Hotels Group and Crown Management Pty Ltd chairman, John Haddad, says he won’t reveal his plans until he gains more support from both sides of State politics. “The first point I’d like to make is that it would be wrong and a total discourtesy to the people of Mildura if I was just going to put the plan in front of them without doing my homework with the Government and Opposition,” Mr Haddad said yesterday. “If I came out with this great plan and then two weeks later the Government and the Nationals said they’re not interested, it would be too embarrassing for words and I won’t do that. “I’ve had informal discussions with the Premier to see what his views are. If the Premier had said he’s not interested, that would have been the end of it. “He said, if it happens it will be with bipartisan support. “I’ve also had informal discussions with the National

Party and the Liberals, but at this stage nothing formal.” Mr Haddad indicated the National Party and Opposition indicated to him they wished to see what the Government’s stance was on the issue. He said he would only reveal his plans for Mildura in full when he had indications from the National and Liberal Parties that they did not object to his plan in principal. He also explained his reasoning for selecting Mildura as the preferred location for Vic-

toria’s second casino. “I’m interested in Mildura because I’m interested in tourism,” he said. “I see that there’s legislation that says there can be two casinos, so why not use it? Be proactive and do something about it.” He said there was no use building a second casino in, or close to, Melbourne, describing it as a case of “robbing Peter to pay Paul”. “So I thought, where else in Victoria?” Mr Haddad said.

“I looked around Victoria and Mildura came out on top. “That’s because it’s got the basic infrastructure, it can bring people in by air, it’s got the power to attract national and international people.” Mr Haddad said it was his “considered opinion” that Mildura was the best location in Victoria for a second casino. Mr Crisp responded to Mr Haddad’s comments with a scathing attack on Premier John Brumby, describing him as a ‘fair weather Premier”. “When it suits him (the Premier), they use their numbers to put things through Parliament and when it doesn’t they put it back on the Opposition,” he said yesterday. “What the Premier’s doing is asking the Nationals and Liberals to support in principal something that the public haven’t seen.” Mildura Tourism chief executive, Rod Trowbridge, said the casino debate to date has had little substance and was potentially damaging to the district’s tourism potential. “We can talk casino, but every time the word casino

comes up, from Mildura Tourism’s perspective, it’s just speculation,” he said. “Yes, a couple of months ago there was a proposal, and it may still be a genuine one, but until there’s something on the table, it’s just speculation. “At the moment, it’s divisive, it’s polarising for absolutely no reason because there’s nothing to discuss. “And the real dilemma now is we’re coming up to our plumb tourism months. “If people coming into the town are aware that there is this level of debate or even this proposal around, and people make the comment to tourism operators, to retailers, ‘what’s happening’? “The response comes back, ‘We don’t know, we don’t know what’s happening, we don’t even know if something is going ahead or not.’ “It makes the town and the Mildura community look half baked. It makes us look like we don’t know what’s going on. “This is not the sort of image that we want to be giving our visitors during the prime tourist period.”

‘Puffin’ and paddling down the Murray... JUST over 12 months ago, on November 1, 2008, the Sydney-based Gribble family was shattered by news that James Gribble had suffered a severe spinal injury while travelling in Zambia. The injury left him with voluntary movement only above his shoulders. Twelve months to the day after that life-changing accident, James’s brother Martin embarked on a fund-raising journey down the Murray River in a kayak in a bid to support his brother, calling it the Puffin Paddle. Martin passed through Mildura this week, providing a chance to find out more about his journey. “My aim is to provide James with world-leading rehabilitation, giving him the best chance of making a full recovery so he can achieve his ultimate goal of walking once again,” the 27-year-old said. Martin expects his 2200-kilometre journey to take about 60 days and has already had his fair share of challenges along the way. “When I was paddling near Swan Hill a massive tree branch fell five metres in front of me from about

Martin said this week’s stage, between Mildura and Renmark, was among the longest without stopping for supplies. When he left Mildura on Wednesday morning he carried with him enough food and water for eight days of travelling. This included about 10 litres of drinking water. Those supplies added

about 80 kilograms to his kayak. Martin said the Puffin Paddle had provided him with more than a few interesting sights. “I was actually quite surprised by the number of people living along the river in tents – that’s their home,” he said. “It was also a bit sad to see so much rubbish left

Police to I’m dreaming of a delicious Christmas. get new bullet-proof vests MILDURA police are to be issued with the same type of bullet-proof vests currently worn by special operations police in Los Angeles and New York hot spots. Police command says the new lightweight vest offers the wearer unprecedented levels of protection from sharp objects and weapons, including most firearms. The plan is to start a rollout of the new vests during December, with all of the State’s 8500 operational policeman and policewoman getting their own personal protective jacket within 12 months. Their launch this week follows extensive trials over the past 12 months. One of the testing officers, Senior Constable Kim Olivia of Buninyong said the new vest was comfortable, and provided good access to police equipment. “I also feel a lot safer.” Sen Const. Olivia said. “Since I got the vest I have worn it every shift, and even with the ballistic panels it is light and easy to wear. “Response from colleagues and members of the

public has been g o o d . When I am out on the r o a d , many people comment on the highly visible vests… and I have found a lot of offenders have been more compliant.” Officially known as Integrated Operational Equipment Vests, the vests are personally tailored to individual sizes, and can be worn under or over a uniform. Victoria is the first police force in the nation to opt for the new lightweight vest. At 7.6kgs, the vests are 4kgs lighter than the current police vests, but still allow police personnel to carry a wide range of operational equipment, including handcuffs, radio, additional ammunition, baton and OC spray. They are also designed to cater for additional equipment, including extra magazine pouch for automatic weapons. At this week’s launch in Melbourne, Deputy Commissioner Kieran Walshe said the new vests were part of an

ongoing program designed for the continued health and safety of police. “Police often find themselves in volatile situations, coming into contact with people who are armed with knives or firearms,” he said. “The vests will provide police with a high level of ballistic and spike protection, increasing confidence and the feeling of safety among members. We have tried to make them as comfortable and as easy to wear as possible so members put on the vest as part of their daily routine.” Mr Walshe said some members who have been trialling the new vests had commented that their families now felt far more confident knowing they were out on the road with the latest safety gear.” It is expected the total cost of the replacement vest program will be around $22 million.

It has become notorious... the ‘big bad wolf’ of the water battle between Queensland and is oversimplifying a very complex and often emotive issue it is

Don’t blame By GRANT MAYNARD MENTION Queensland’s Cubbie Station to a lower Darling River irrigator and it’s time to stand well back as the chips start flying. It is not over-stating the fact to say that the station has become infamous... the blackhatted bad guy in a ‘water war’ between States and exacerbated by the prevailing drought. But, according to Lower Murray Darling Catchment Management Authority chairman, Mark King, blaming Cubbie Station alone for the lack of water coming down the Darling River was misguided and simplistic. “It is too easy to blame Cubbie Station for all that is wrong in the Darling system at present... particularly at the lower end where we are,” he said. “But we are talking about a very complex and often times emotive issue... “Yes, Cubbie does store large amounts of water,” Mr King said referring to the oftquoted ‘three Sydney harbours’ comparison. “But we have to remember three important points: • One. Cubbie is not the

only property in that region storing vast amounts of water, just the one that has been, and continues to be, highlighted most probably because it is a big target – as the largest, privately-owned cotton property in Queensland. • Two. Cubbie’s annual water ‘harvest’ is closely monitored and its owners are doing nothing illegal, but I concede that some people will feel they are able to make a strong moral case against what is happening. • Three. Queenlsand irrigators point to the prodigious evaporation from the Menindee Lakes scheme and are encouraging us to look to our own backyard for water savings and efficiencies.” Cubbie director John Grabbe told Mr King, and others making an inspection of the Darling River system earlier this year, that “a lot of people condemn Cubbie without knowing all the facts”. Mr Grabbe said he could understand the pain of downstream irrigators and their communities, but there had been “no rational debate to date” on the issue of water in the Darling system and it was time to look at the “true sci-

ence” of water extraction and use. “Irrigators up here don’t want to ruin everything,” he said. “I have no idea how to solve the issues downstream, but we certainly have to look at where any money for this could be best spent.” He pointed to the Menindee Lakes and described the evaporation there as “very bad”. “That’s where the water should be saved,” Mr Grabbe said. Speaking this week following the LMD CMA’s release of a report on the factfinding mission undertaken in May this year, Mr King said the “aerial reconnaissance” had been a real eyeopener. Accompanied on the tour by LMD CMA staffers and Lower Darling irrigators, Mr King described the tour as “very worthwhile”. The tour group flew direct from Mildura to St George in Queensland, over outer Sunraysia’s cropping operations before passing over Mungo and then deeper into the pastoral country of New South Wales’ far west. As the tour progressed,

Cubbie alone the flight path took the group over the dryland farming areas about Cobar, and then onto the irrigated farming operations of the Darling catchment in the Dirrandbandi/ St George region of Queensland. “We were amazed at the number, and size, of the onfarm water storages for irrigation operations in southern Queensland and as far downstream into NSW as Bourke,� Mr King said “This brought sharply into focus just how many more properties other than Cubbie Station, from Bourke in New South Wales up into southern Queensland, are also storing large amounts of water.� After landing, the group toured the St George irrigation area that totals about 12,000 hectares with the tightly held farms usually in the 600 to 700 hectare range. Amongst the properties the group was surprised to discover 12 grape properties, ranging in size from two hectares to more than 300, and totalling about 525 hectares. It was here that the group

the fact that irrigation development started much later than downstream; and that they believe the evaporation from the Menindee Lakes

Sweet timing for factory opening By GRANT MAYNARD IT’S a term often used in sport to describe the silky skills of a sportsperson swinging their bat, club or racquet to great effect, but yesterday ‘sweet timing’ took on a very different meaning in Mildura. Yesterday was the official opening of the Christie Centre’s new Mildura Chocolate Factory, the event timed to coincide with the International Day for People with Disability. That is sweet timing! The opening was a wonderful celebration of new beginnings, and the promotion of people’s abilities and potential. The idea for a chocolate making business in Mildura was the brainchild of recycling success story Aroundagain manager, Krister Jonsson, who enthusiastically ‘sold the idea’ to the management of Mildura’s Christie Centre. A business plan was prepared, the chocolate melting machine ordered from Italy, raw chocolate purchased from Kennedy and Wilson in the Yarra Valley, and a search for a ‘home’ initiated. After months of looking, the ideal shop front in 10th Street was found, and refurbished with the help of volunteers, all in time for yesterday’s grand opening. Krister said that now that an idea had become a reality, what it really meant was new jobs for workers with a disability. Workers from Aroundagain,

Once that is done, ‘Life Skills

On Pine’ workers take over, packaging the chocolates and delivering them to businesses throughout the CBD. Krister said he had been heartened by the interest and support he had received from the business, tourism and hospitality sectors.

“They have all shown a keen interest in supporting Mildura Chocolate Co.,” he said. And how will the business go? “The proof will be in the taste,” Krister said. “But I am sure that one taste of these delicious chocolates and they will sell themselves!”

Planning is well in hand for a school class reunion at Gol Gol next year, but organisers are having trouble finding two... By GRANT MAYNARD JOHN Turvey where are you? Ditto Graham Danoon. Or is that Graeme? They’re the two missing faces that, if found, would make an upcoming class reunion complete. To date, 43 of the 45 Grade 3/Grade 4 students from Gol Gol Public School in 1957 have been accounted for. Now it is time to make a public appeal in an effort

Little boys lost... to find the missing pair, according to co-organiser Kaye Roberts. “We have accounted for everyone else... sadly including five that are deceased,” she said. “But we haven’t been able to find this pair.”

And it’s not for a lack of trying. For the past six months Kaye has been diligently searching out her former classmates. Not surprisingly those who live locally have been the easiest to find... with

some she, and fellow organiser Danny Cotching still run into from time to time. But others have been more elusive, taking more time and effort to find. For the past six to seven months Kaye has been using re-

sources like the Internet, telephone books, and picking the brains of fellow classmates, and their families, to track down the Class of ‘57. But her enterprise has paid off, and to date invitations for the reunion, to be

held in April 2010, have gone out to former classmates living right around our wide brown land, and as far afield as the United States! June’s Buronga/Gol Gol reunion was a rich ‘mine of information’, Kaye said. “We passed the photo around and got some good leads.” So too was a ‘dry run reunion’ held earlier this year for 10 or a dozen ex-students at the Gol Gol Hotel. •  Continued Page 14

The educational and cultural rewards will be enormous its proponents claim as...

Historic sister-school agreement signed off By VINNIE RODI MERBEIN and Red Cliffs Secondary College students will have an opportunity to broaden their cultural horizons in the near future, after both schools signed a sister-agreement with the Dali Number One Middle School, located in the Yunnan Province in China. The agreement will see Sunraysia strengthen its ties to the Dali region, with Mildura Rural City Council similarly forming a strong relationship with the area in recent years. Red Cliffs and Merbein Secondary College principals David Browne and Garry Costello said they were excited to participate in the agreement, which is set to see students benefit from annual exchanges. “As a school we are very excited by this opportunity,” Mr Costello said. “I’ve been involved with sisterschool relationships in the past, and the benefits are numerous.” Mr Brown and Mr Costello were both part of the group to make the trip to Dali last month to sign the official agreement, saying that they’d been delighted with the initial relationship formed. “The benefits for our students are going to be incredible,” Mr Brown said. “From a cultural stand-point it was a real eye-opener, and it was incredible to see first-hand what the Dali province has to offer. “As part of this agreement our students will have the opportunity to learn new languages, and experience a culture completely different to their own, and I’m excited and proud that our school can be a part of it.” Mr Costello was similarly excited by the agreement, saying that students could benefit greatly from experiencing the many sights and sounds of another country. “After visiting the area I have no doubt that China is an emerging nation, and Dali especially has a great mix of modern and the more traditional Chinese culture,” he said.

• HISTORY IN THE MAKING: Red Cliff Secondary College principal David Browne (seated second from the right), and Dali Number One Middle School representative Madam Ma (seated second from the left) make the agreement official and INSET: Garry Costello.

“There are going to be some wonderful opportunities for our kids to experience a fantastic part of Asia, and for students from Dali to experience life here in Australia. “I’m very excited by the opportunities being made available, and can’t wait to start putting some definite plans and programs into action.” Both principals were joined by their respective school council presidents on the trip, with representatives from the Department of Education and Mildura Rural City Council

also attending. All three schools signed the official agreement on November 11, with principal Mr Lui representing the Dali Number One Middle School. Mr Costello said now that initial “contact” had been made, it was only a matter of time before official times and dates could be put in place for student exchanges.

“The groundwork is there, and while the nuts and bolts of these exchanges haven’t been finalised, I’m confident that we’ll be able to send students sometime next year,” he said. “At the moment we’re looking at September or October, which is where students from all three schools would suffer the least disruption.” Mr Browne said he hoped the relationship could be expanded to include teacher exchanges, ensuring that everyone involved could reap the benefits. “The first step has been taken, and the next one is obviously to establish student exchanges,” he said. “Ideally I’d love to see teachers from

both here and Dali take part in exchanges as well, and experience teaching in another country.” Mr Browne said that the relationship was also a chance to strengthen ties with Merbein Secondary College. “Our students, namely those who take part in exchanges, will probably spend a fair amount of time together, so there is certainly a chance for bonds to form between students,” he said. “Everyone involved is just excited to get the ball rolling now that the agreement is official, and we’re looking forward to what we hope will be a long and highly beneficial relationship for all three schools.”

Artists put Wentworth in the frame WENTWORTH was in the frame last week as Melbourne artist Cathy Van Ee and one of the town’s resident artists, Steve Hederics, committed historic township landmarks and surrounding natural features to canvas. They dubbed the challenge, ‘Wentworth in a Week’, and set about creating a number of works each that now hang as an exhibition in the Artback Australia gallery on the corner of Darling and Adelaide Streets. “The last week has been a great opportunity for Steve and Cathy to discuss their different techniques and approaches to painting while collaborate together for an exhibition,” Artback’s Anne Hederics, said. Cathy is a full time portrait and landscape painter, who was keen to experience and paint iconic Wentworth sites including junction of the Darling and Murray Rivers. The Artback Gallery currently features a variety of paintings, drawings, textiles and photography by a group of artists that meets whenever time allows, usually working in a bush environment, close to nature. The results of Steve and Cathy’s week of producing paintings in, and around Wentworth, will be on show at the Artback Gallery/Café today, tomorrow and Sunday from 10am till 4pm.

Timed to start at 11am, the Fete will, of course, feature strawberries and cream as well as some other ‘taste bud ticklers’ including Devonshire teas, a barbecue, cakes and lots of fresh produce. There will also be a plethora of Christmas gift ideas and goodies, a trash and treasure sale, teddy bear display and competition, and Ivy Barber’s cook book will be on sale. It is Murray House’s most important fund-raiser of the year and everyone is invited. The Fete will be centred on the Wentworth Memorial Rooms complex in Darling Street and run through till 3pm. • LEARNING FROM EACH OTHER: Artists Steve Hederics and Cathy Van Ee have been committing Wentworth to canvas.

Not a good sign… MAYBE it’s just a sign of the times, but Victoria seems to have gone sign crazy. One of our eagle-eyed staffers decided to do a comparison on signage on the border area separating South Australia and Victoria. Regular travellers along the Sturt Highway leading to and from Yamba would probably have noticed, but for the record, there’s just four major signs introducing travellers to South Australia – including one advising of the fruit fly roadblock up ahead, but coming into Victoria there’s a total of 21 signs! And all within the space of a kilometre. Of course you would expect a ‘Welcome to Victoria’ sign (covered in graffiti and pale in comparison to the “Welcome to SA’ signage), and there are the necessary advice that motorists are entering a 110kph speed zone… followed by another sign a short distance away telling us that State highway speed limits are 100kph unless other limits are posted. Then it starts to get a little ridiculous. A double sign warns firstly that motorists are likely to encounter slow moving farm machinery on the road (obviously motorists can’t work it out for themselves), and there’s a warning that there’s to be no burning off without a written permit from Mildura Rural City Council. Motorists are warned about speed and red light cameras (we’re several hundred kilometres away from the nearest red light camera), and we’re advised that

driver drug tests are conducted in Victoria. There’s two emergency numbers just in case you happen to hit, or come across, injured wildlife, and just after a border rest stop, motorists are advised that the next 90 kilometres is a fatigue zone, and they should rest if tired. There’s another sign that warns that roadwork speed limits are enforced in Victoria (which SA is deadly on, but actually far more relaxed in Victoria), and then there’s the sign advising you of the need for a fishing licence if you are heading for the river, 116 kilometres away. There’s a host of other signs, probably just erected to fill in space between more signs. All shapes, sizes and colours too. We’re wondering if the number of signs could be distracting to motorists, and how many of them are actually absolutely necessary.

Award-winning journalist, author John Silvester is one of the most recognisable and respected names in Australian journalism and publishing circles… not to mention the Melbourne underworld! He has written, edited and published more than 30 crime books - including the best selling Underbelly series with co-author and fellow respected crime reporter Andrew Rule. Silvester’s work was used as the basis for the top rating Underbelly television series on Melbourne’s Gangland War. The series was initially banned in Victoria because of ongoing criminal cases before the courts, but was freely available in the rest of Australia, and became an instant hit, following on from the best-seller book. An accomplished public speaker, he started his journalistic career at the Sun and Herald sun, was appointed Sun police reporter in 1980, Chief Police Reporter a year later and was an investigate reporter with that newspaper from 1986-1993. He then moved to the Age, where he is still employed, and is also a crime commentator on Radio 3AW as ‘Sly of the Underworld.’

Shot in the stomach by a drug-dealing rival, he recovered to spree began. Award-winning Age investigative

Silvester has studied crime and corruption in South East Asia, and has worked with the London Sunday Times Insight team. He was a Walkley Award state finalist in 1988 and 1996, a national finalist in 2003 and a winner, for best use of the medium, in 2004. He has won numerous awards at the Melbourne Press Club Quill Awards and the Victorian Law Foundation, and was awarded the Ned Kelly Award in 2000 for the Best True Crime Book (for ‘Underbelly’) and the 2005 Ned Kelly Lifetime Achievement Award. 
 Silvester has also been called on to give evidence at criminal Royal Commissions, and is regularly interviewed by the electronic media as an expert on crime in Victoria.

 He is a regular speaker at police and other legal functions including the Police Officers College, homicide squad, arson squad, surveillance branch, special operations group and the criminal bar association. He also does extensive work as a speaker for corporate groups and at functions in the financial sector, major law firms, media companies and sporting associations.

Drug killer CARL Williams’ rise from middle-ranked drug dealer to heavyweight killer should never have happened. His plans for revenge and controlling a major drug syndicate should have collapsed when he was arrested in slapstick circumstances six weeks after he was shot by the Morans. For Broadmeadows police it began as a low-level fraud investigation, and ended as a $20 million drug bust. The fraud involved a local family accruing credit card debts with no intention of repaying, then changing their names to obtain new cards to repeat the scam. On the morning of November 25, 1999, police arrived at a housing commission home in Fir Close to serve related arrest warrants, but no one was home. Later that day Detective Sergeant Andrew Balsillie was passing, and noticed two

Special report by JOHN SILVESTER of The Age cars at the house. He recalled his team to issue the warrants and, after bursting in, found a pill press, 30,000 tablets (almost certainly the Moran pills that had been returned to be re-pressed) and nearly seven kilograms of speed valued at $20 million. Carl Williams was found hiding in a bed upstairs, and his father George in another room, in which a loaded Glock semiautomatic pistol was later found. Local police rightly chose to run it by the book and called the amphetamine experts from the drug squad. They were not to know that the two detectives, Malcolm Rosenes and Stephen Paton, were corrupt and would later be jailed. While there was no suggestion they interfered with the investigation, the

Supreme Court later decided that several drug cases, including Williams’, should be delayed until the detectives’ prosecutions were completed. It was while Williams was on bail for those (and other) drug charges that he organised the underworld murders. If the drug cases had not been delayed, Williams would have been jailed for at least four years, unable to carry out a homicidal vendetta. While inside jail for nearly two months on remand, Williams began planning his first attack, and started recruiting his team. One of the first to join was Andrew “Benji” Veniamin, the former kickboxer and gunman who once idolised Carlton identity Mick Gatto, a man who for decades has cast one of the biggest shadows in Melbourne’s underworld.

become a big shot himself, and the name Carl Williams was a name to be feared as the Melbourne underworld killing journalist and author JOHN SILVESTER continues his story. This week he tells about the…

dealer turned to be feared... Williams saw Gatto, who was affiliated with the Morans but not involved in the squabble over drugs, as a potentially powerful enemy. Williams thought that if he killed the Moran brothers, established underworld figures, including Gatto, would seek revenge. He decided his best chance of survival was not to jump at shadows but cast a bigger one, so he launched a hostile takeover. Initially, Williams was outnumbered and in no position to take on the Moran brothers, let alone contemplate plans for gangland domination. Williams was finally bailed on his drug charges on January 22, 2000. Three days later Jason Moran was jailed for affray and sentenced to 20 months’ jail. Mark Moran had lost his closest ally and was now hopelessly exposed. Five months later, on June 15, Mark Moran was killed outside his Aberfeldie home. More driven than Jason and less erratic, he had, until then, managed to keep a lower profile. When his death was reported he was referred to as a local football star rather than an underworld identity. But police knew it was a gangland hit.

It smelled of an ambush. Moran’s natural father, Leslie John Cole, was shot dead in similar circumstances in Sydney - ambushed outside his home - 18 years earlier. Mark’s stepfather, Lewis Moran, was drinking in a north-western suburban hotel when he heard of the shooting. Immediately he called for a council of war at his home. The Moran kitchen cabinet discussed who they believed was responsible, and how they should respond. The Morans, never short of enemies, narrowed the field to three. Williams and his team was by no means the favourite. “We still didn’t know we were in

In the hours before his death, Mark Moran had been busy. First he had given drugs to a dealer at the Gladstone Park Shopping Centre, 800 metres from where he and his brother had shot Williams the previous year. The dealer was short of cash, and Moran agreed to give him credit. Few people were stupid enough to try and rip off the Morans. Mark Moran drove home, received a phone call and left for a second meeting. On returning he was blasted with a shotgun as he stepped out of his Commodore. Williams was the gunman, and his getaway driver would later be im-

ner,’ it was there that Williams first asked him to kill Jason Moran. Moran had been spotted in London by one of the Williams team (the ‘Lieutenant’) and, unwisely, decided to return, even though he must have known his life was still in danger. Williams was not content with one hit team and continued to recruit inside and out of prison. He looked to relatives, close friends and hardened gunmen whose loyalty he thought he could demand, or at least buy. Williams knew that ‘The Runner,’ no pin-up boy for prisoner rehabilitation programs, was soon to be released after serving his sentence for armed robbery. He was good with guns, and ruthless. • NEXT: ‘The Runner’ does a runner…

was more important than a murder probe they thought would fail. Their prediction was self-fulfilling. Police and the underworld expected that when Jason Moran was released from prison he would go after Williams. But when he was freed on September 5, 2001, Williams was back inside on remand, having been charged in with trafficking 8000 ecstasy tablets. The parole board let Moran go overseas because of fears for his life, while Williams continued to recruit from a small area filled with potential killers - Port Phillip Prison. Once the man known as ‘The Runner’ decided to accept Carl Williams’ offer, they celebrated with a quiet drink inside the prison’s Swallow Unit. According to ‘The Run-

a war,” a Moran insider later said. For Williams it was the beginning, and for the Morans it was the beginning of the end. Much later Lewis Moran, said to still hold the first dollar he ever stole, tried to take out a contract on Williams but he would only offer $40,000. There were no takers. There were seven men at the meeting at Moran’s home. Five are now dead. In the case of Mark’s death, police suspected Williams from the start, so much so that his house was raided the next day. But internal police politics terminally damaged the investigation. Members of the drug squad, who had worked on the Morans for years, deliberately concealed information from the homicide squad because they believed their investigation

Mooring breakthrough • From page 3 “Firstly, those mooring posts have been there for probably 25 years and they only allow for three our four vessels comfortably,” Mr Thomson said. “This new mooring facility will mean we can fit a lot more vessels in there. “Secondly, with the advent of much bigger vessels now, they draw much more water, are heavier and some don’t reach the bank safely because the water is too shallow in that location at the moment.

“Finally, there’s the safety aspect. The river bank can become degraded, which can make getting on and off vessels difficult. This mooring facility will stop any degradation of the bank.” Mr Thomson said the one issue in need of clarification was how long boats could stay at the site. “The time limit is still unclear. We understand Council wanted a shorter time to stop long-term moorings, but the Association’s position was that 24 hours was reasonable,” he said.

camp, with the free event designed to give community members a firstperson experience and perspective. Mildura Manager of Justice Services Rudy Kirby, one of the organisers of the event, said that Friday’s session was already booked out, with more than 500 secondary school students taking part. “While I haven’t been a part of the experience personally, I’ve heard fantastic reviews from those who have tried it,” he said. “While Friday’s session is already booked, there are still spots available for Saturday. “This simulation is going to be a real eye-opener, demonstrating what refugees go through when they seek asylum. “As a society we hear about refugees through the media, but more often than not those events are filtered, and not everything is reported. “This simulation allows participants to experience a refugee’s life up-close, and as a result gain a better perspective of what they go through. While it may prove confronting in areas, personally I can’t wait to see what it is all about.” More information on the festival, or any of the above events, is available by contacting Glenda on 5021 7492.

nology in a higher rainfall zone in south west Victoria. This is being done with the aid of funds from the Grains Research and Development Corporation. Two weeks ago, at sites at Winchelsea and Derrinallum there were real differences in the colour of the crop. The control plots were yellow and mature, says Dr Sale, while those using the new technology of deep organic treatments were still green and growing. “This indicates that the crops on the deep organic plots are able to continue growing and extract water from the subsoil. Higher yields will certainly be expected from these plots,” he said. Other members of the research team are Dr Jaikirat Gill and Professor Caixian Tang from La Trobe University, and Dr Renick Peries from the Victorian Department of Primary Industry.

State volunteer honour for Barry • BOTTAMS UP: Barry Bottams with the special award that recognises his outstanding contribution to harness racing.

By VINNIE RODI MILDURA Harness Racing Club President Barry Bottams has received the highest accolade a volunteer can receive within the sport, awarded the Association of Victorian Country Harness Racing Clubs’ Volunteer Recognition Award. The 64-year-old, who has been involved with harness racing since the age of 18, said that while he was surprised and shocked to win, he was also equally honoured. “To be honest I had no idea that I’d been nominated, let along that I was going to win,” he said. “My entire family, and the Mildura Harness Racing committee knew, but I had no idea. “I’m very honoured, and I think it’s a fantastic recognition of the work the entire Mildura Harness Club committee, not just myself, has put into the sport locally.” Presented with the award in Melbourne, Barry said he had started to become suspicious after he realised his entire family had made the trip with him. “Even my 85-yearold mother came to Melbourne,” he said. “I started to figure out something was going on when I saw mum there.” Barry was nominated by Mildura Harness Racing Club secretary Mark Kemp, who said that he had “all of the qualities” the industry sought in its leaders, including “loyalty, honesty, experience and a hard-working attitude.” He stated in a letter to the selection panel that Barry’s voluntary efforts within the sport had been numerous, including dedicating countless hours to working bees and committee meetings, while fulfilling vital roles for the organisation including stints as a mo-

bile driver, farrier, track attendant and bookmaker’s supervisor. Barry’s love and passion for harness racing started with his father, Luke Bottams, who introduced his son to the sport at an early age. “Dad always had a love of horses, and would often go and have a punt,” Barry said. “We didn’t have television or anything like that back in those days, so I used to tag along for a bit of fun. “My interest quickly grew, and every time Dad would go to the harness racing I would go with him.” It was an interest that quickly became a passion,

“I would love to see more youngsters involved with the committee...” – Barry Bottams with Barry taking out a trainer/driver licence in the 1960s. He has rarely been without a horse since, driving a number of winners in Broken Hill, Wentworth and Mildura during his career. And while feeling that winning rush quickly became something he loved, it was training horses where Barry found his true passion. Barry was introduced to driver Keith Addison in the early 1970s, attending Keith’s stables and helping to job horses. He quickly found himself under Keith’s tutelage, learning a lot from the man who would later win the World Driver’s Championship in 1975. In 1983 Barry formed a partnership with Dr Terry Cook, purchasing two mares, ‘Isle Wynette’ and ‘Lisa Wynette’, for breeding purposes. Two of the foals,

doing what I’m doing forever. “I know that the day will come where I will have to step aside, but hopefully that day is a long way off. “After so many years I still love the sport, and am looking forward to what the furture holds for both the Mildura Harness Racing Club, and the sport in general.”

‘Olympic Peace’ and ‘Golden Gate’, went on to great success, which included wins at Harold Park under Sydney trainer Glen Frost. Barry’s stature continued to grow during the 1980s and 1990s, with the veteran associated with some of the region’s more successful horses, including ‘Jeffs Doll’, ‘Magic Moment’, ‘Can Opener’ and ‘Pendadoll’. With his success also came the desire to give something back to the sport, with Barry joining the Mildura Harness Racing Club’s committee 34 years ago, a role he still holds today as the club’s longest running president (12 years). And while it’s a sport that has been good to him, Barry said he could see tough times ahead if younger members didn’t start taking on more responsibilities, especially on the Harness Club Committee. “It’s getting harder to find volunteers,” he said. “I was 20-years-old when I first started helping out, and you don’t see many 20-year-old committee members nowadays. “Most of the current committee, including myself, has been there for a long time now, and we can only keep doing the job for so long. “I would love to see more youngsters involved with the committee, and I think it’s important that more of them start getting involved with the organisational side of the sport.” Barry said that his passion for harness racing was still as strong as ever, and that he planned to continue his involvement both as a trainer and committee member for as long as possible. “I don’t think I’ll ever lose the passion,” he said. “And I would love to keep

The opportunity comes out of ‘left field,’ but Brisbane next year. But first there’s a robot

Don’t blame Cubbie Station alone: King On the floodplains below St George the holdings become much larger and include substantial above ground storages to catch the maximum water allocated. A case in point was 8500-hectare of ‘Balonne Plains’ where the rule of thumb is 6000 megalitres of stored water for each 1200 hectares. There is artesian water in the area, but farmers find the costs involved in its extraction are much higher than drawing on river supplies. The tour group also found that farmers in the area had banded together about 15 years ago as ‘Smart Rivers’, to defend claims that they were taking more water than they are entitled to. And the group developed a water management plan for the area after the Queensland Government applied the pressure, telling them their water extraction was unsustainable. Smart Rivers remains politically active to retain members’ allocations, continually working to prove the Balonne River has one of the highest flows of any watercourse in the area and with a relatively low level of development. The right of Queensland irrigators to draw the water they are from the Darling catchment was reiterated when the group toured Cubbie Station. The Cubbie Group is an amalgamation of two family farms – Cubbie and Blache – with 80,000 hectares in all and 19,000 given over to irrigation. According to the CMA report, the farm is valued at more than $460million and the group’s extraction from

the Condamine-Balonne system is 20 to 25 percent of the total licensed extractions. The company has an annual average cotton crop of 180,000 bales, selling for between $500 and $600 dollars a bale, plus cereal crop returns totalling about $100million.

“I’m not against irrigation, but we need (water) penetration to the south... and it’s not only Cubbie – a number of properties in the region have huge inflows.” – Ed Fessey There is no doubt it is big business, but the returns have to be balanced against the farm’s massive costs. The tour group was told that the development of the property to date has seen about 100 million cubic metres of dirt shifted, and in 1995-96 for example, the company was using 11 D10 bulldozers to build channels and banks and consuming $1million worth of diesel a month! That was more volume than that used by Brisbane City Council during the same period. Even though the farm’s storage facilities are only full about once a decade, maintenance of the earthworks is continuous with some contractors having been working on Cubbie for the past 10 to 15 years. Mr Grabbe suggested to the group during its tour that if every irrigator in the Murray

Darling Basin took a 10 to 20 percent cut in entitlements, many of the current challenges could be overcome. He claimed the Balonne was the second healthiest catchment in the system, and that Cubbie had the data to prove it. What was happening downstream, he contended, was not a result of what he and his fellow farmers were doing in Queensland. However, Culgoa-based Lower Balonne Floodplain Association chairman, Ed Fessey, did not agree when he spoke to the group soon after. His association represents dryland farmers feeling the pinch because, they argue, the water that used to flood out over 100,000 to 150,000 hectares in their area for stock feed no longer does. He told the group there was a million hectares of floodplain in New South Wales just north of Brewarrina and about 200,000 hectares on the Queensland side. “We are noticing less land is being flooded since the 1980s when the higher extractions began upstream,” he said. Mr Fessey said the main issues for his members were the continued supply of stock and domestic water, the heavy allocations granted upstream, the low flow scenario and the resulting cost to downstream communities. Without the flooding that occurred prior to the 1980s, farm businesses were becoming increasingly unsustainable on the floodplain, he said. “I’m not against irrigation, but we need (water) penetration to the south... and it’s not only Cubbie – a number of properties in the region have huge inflows.”

Global and

By ALAN ERSKINE MILDURA has been invited to promote itself on the global stage with an involvement in two unique and widely-publicised Armed Forces projects next year – one in Adelaide and the other in Brisbane. A casual talk during a fishing trip off the coast of Yorke Peninsula earlier this year has led to Mildura connections pursuing the idea with Mildura Rural City Council and tourism authorities. On the fishing trip and offering the opportunity to Mildura was the ex-Army Brigadier-General who is helping coordinate the international events, and he believes there is opportunity for Mildura and its products – especially tourism based around the river – to be included for minimal cost, and maximum exposure. The first event, a global robotic ‘hide, seek and destroy’ contest that carries a first prize of $1 million, has many parts that are classified, but the second, a land warfare conference in Brisbane, is ‘open slather.’ As well as being in regular touch with the Army research and development expert who is organising both

Red Cliffs market to embrace Christmas RED Cliffs will embrace all things Christmas this Sunday, with the Red Cliffs Country Market to adopt the festive theme as its own. The ‘Christmas Market’ is being labelled as a great opportunity to browse more than 150 stalls, with plenty of gift ideas on offer, with a variety of arts and crafts, timberwares, plants, preserves, jewellery, cakes, local fresh produce, flowers, food stalls and local shops to be on offer throughout the morning. A variety of local entertainment will also be on show, with the District Brass Band, the Red Cliffs Primary School Choir, and local performer Julie Falconer to all take the Barclay Square stage from 10am. And it wouldn’t be Christmas without the jolly man in red, with Santa expected to make a special appearance (arriving by fire-truck) at 10am. The Market will take place from 9am to 1pm, with stalls to be located along Indi Avenue, Ilex Street and the grassy Barclay Square. More information is available by contacting 0458 907 226.

events, the Mildura man trying to clinch the deal has strong connections to a major sponsor of the land warfare conference, which is open to academics, commercial groups, research organizations and military from around the world. Joining this sponsor is Thales Australia, the Queensland, Victorian, Northern Territory and SA Governments and DIEHL Defence group.

Television rights for the conferences were signed off only a few weeks ago. Early-bird registration for Brisbane has started, and according to organisers, display stands are being quickly snapped up by companies from around Australia, and the world. Registration fee for a stand at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre is around $1300, with the delegate fee set at

$300 a person. Closer to the conference, a late fee will apply, rising from $300 to $400, with a late fee (if accepted) after September of $500. A briefing on the robotic challenge, called Magic 2010 (Multi Autonomous Ground-robotic International Challenge) and the Land Warfare Conference has been sent to the Mayor of Mildura, Cr Glenn Milne, major events staff, and Rod Trowbridge from Mildura Tourism. Mr Trowbridge and a major events staffer have responded to say the idea is worthy of more investigation to see how it could benefit Mildura tourism. This event is already in the advanced stages of planning, with the organising group flying to various parts of the world over the past year to brief Governments and military organizations. The Mildura Weekly has been told that the event attracted several dozen entries, and a shortlist of 10 entrants, including five from the United States, has now been culled to the five finalists who will go head to head in the unique challenge, which is being sponsored by research and development groups with military and government connections in

Born on the 19th August, 1883, I was orphaned at an early age in the Roman Catholic monastery of Aubazine, where I learnt the trade of a seamstress. My school vacations were spent with relatives, where I was taught to sew with more flourish. With a modernist philosophy, menswear-inspired fashions, and pursuit of expensive simplicity I became an important figure in 20th-century fashion.

it could be worth pursuing… the chance to show off Mildura at a land warfare conference in war challenge in Adelaide, with $1 million up for grabs. It’s a case of…

war games, we’re invited

both Australia and the USA. Each of them has been given $100,000 to help them get to the starting line. The criteria is long, comprehensive and very technical, but in layman’s terms it will mean the most sophisticated robotic weapons in the world will compete against each other in a series of “seek, identify and save/destroy” missions in a specified time frame in

and among buildings and other obstacles, guided by two controllers. America and Australia will jointly put up the $1 million prize money, with $750,000 of that going to the winner, but the real value will be in the government defence contracts they might gain as a result of the competition. Although Magic 2010 doesn’t have much appeal for Sunraysia, there

are some who believe we could be involved with the land warfare conference, especially at a ‘bargain basement’ price, and considering our close connection with organisers. As the man who is running the show said to me; “I will ensure you get to meet the right people, and show off what Mildura has to offer.” A representative of one of the major spon-

sors also agreed that although the ‘war’ aspect of the conference didn’t concern Mildura, all those at the conference, their companies and extensive contacts, had to holiday somewhere, and also promised his help in getting the Mildura message across. The best way to do this was to have someone at a Mildura tourism stand, handing out oranges, dried fruit packs

and other local produce to delegates, accompanied by information packages. It might also be the perfect opportunity also for evening wine tasting sessions to promote the wide variety of top quality wines in the region. In short, we’ve got the opportunity, we’ve got the time, we have the contacts at the highest level… all we need now is a decision.

Communities urged to access memorial grants THE call has gone out to ex-service organisations, councils and community organisations with an interest in the maintenance of local war memorials to apply for a grant to assist in any restoration work that may be required. Member for Mildura, Peter Crisp, said grants are available

for funding of up to $10,000 to upgrade and enhance local commemorative sites and honour rolls. “Practically every community has a war memorial commemorating the courage, spirit and sacrifice of local servicemen and women,” Mr Crisp said.

“Unfortunately, over time these memorials suffer from the elements and this grants program is designed to assist communities to reinstate them to their original condition,” he said. “Our war memorials are a sign of our enduring respect for the sacrifice made by so many and

they also provide an opportunity for our younger generations to learn about and appreciate the legacy of our war veterans. “There are memorials for our fallen right across the electorate, and I urge all committees or community groups to apply for this funding if they believe that

the memorial needs restoring, or just a little tender loving care,” Mr Crisp. Applications for the grant close on February 15, 2010 and forms can be accessed by phoning 1300 366 356 or by going to the grants website www.grants.dpcd. vic.gov.au.

Casual, Contract & Harvest Workers needed for study On Work & Health ($25 per interview) Ongoing, permanent, work is becoming less common these days, especially in rural Victoria. More people now work in �flexible� or �temporary� work: as casuals, seasonal workers or contractors. Here the number of hours work and the income that people get can change from week to week and month to month and workers sometimes have to move around looking for work or do more than one job just to earn enough to get by. This is now common in agriculture, where workers are hired in on temporary basis as casuals or contractors to do things like fruit picking, crop harvesting and shearing. But it�s also common in other industries too, like construction, manufacturing and production where workers are hired in to cover busy periods (for example in packing sheds) and let go again when the work dies down. It�s important to know how all this is affecting people�s health and wellbeing because having control over your work and having job security are important for good health. So, we are looking to interview workers from across a range of industries—but particularly agriculture—about their experience of casual, seasonal and contract work and how this sort of work has affected their quality of life. For example: •

Is job insecurity an issue for casual, seasonal and contract workers? How do they deal with this? Does it bother them or their family?

Do people like working as a casual, contract or seasonal worker basis because it gives them the flexibility and control to balance their work around other things in life that they want to do? Or do people struggle with getting enough work and earning enough money to get by or find it difficult working as a casual?

If you take part in this project you will be asked to do three interviews over the next three years. Each interview will take place locally in your area and will take about 40 minutes. You will get $25 for each interview and we won�t use your name in any of the research reports.

In accordance with section 8A(3) of the Planning and Environment Act 1987, the Minister for Planning authorised the Mildura Council as planning authority to prepare the amendment. The Minister also authorised the Mildura Council to approve the amendment under section 35B of the Act. The land affected by the amendment is 12 Langtree Parade Mildura (Lot 1 and Lot 2 TP 674162X). The amendment introduces permanent controls to HO30 in accordance with the interim order Amendment C49 which corrected a mapping anomaly on Mildura Planning Scheme Map No.27HO to extend the existing heritage control HO30 to apply to Lot 1 and Lot 2 TP 674162X Sec77 Blk D. The amendment also introduces

Tell us what you think of Council Mildura Rural City Council is asking the people it serves and represents how they think the organisation is performing. A survey quizzing residents on their satisfaction with Council services and facilities as well as the way the organisation operates has been delivered to 1200 randomly selected households throughout the municipality. Mayor Glenn Milne said survey recipients were encouraged to answer the questions honestly and return their completed surveys using an included reply-paid envelope. “Council has been conducting surveys like this each year since 2003 as a way of gauging how we are travelling and determining what the community sees as the most important services and facilities we provide,” he said. “The results from the surveys are crucial if we want to improve how we operate and how we can best serve the people of Mildura Rural City.” Survey recipients will have approximately two weeks to complete and return their surveys, which should only take about 15 minutes to fill out. Issues regarding value for money, public open spaces, Council staff, building and planning, tourism, economic development and public health feature amongst the questions. “This is an ideal opportunity for people to participate and really make their views on Council, as a whole, known. I hope those households that receive a survey will take the time to complete one as the organisation will refer to the results when making future decisions,” Cr Milne said.

Collie & Tierney Directors Tim Aldridge, Robert J Stephens, Cheryl Reberger and Steve Garsed with the companies award on Saturday night First National’s Victorian members were rewarded for their stellar achievements over the past year on Saturday night at the network’s Gala Awards dinner held at the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne. The elegant Christmas themed affair celebrated the best of the state’s real estate performances with Collie & Tierney First National being awarded the third highest achieving office in Victoria. Collie & Tierney First National principal, Robert J Stephens was delighted that the team’s hard work and efforts were recognised, particularly in the volatile market of the past 12 months. “Real estate can be challenging at the best of times, but in the tough economic conditions of last year, we have surpassed anyone’s expectations and that is testimony to our professionalism and dedication,” Robert

said. First National Real Estate State Director, Ross Neilson said the First National Awards recognised high performers in the network, encouraged others to learn and grow their businesses and provided an ideal opportunity for staff to network. “While we are part of a large Australian network, and so have the support and backing of a collective, we still need to operate as individuals and that is what these awards are about,” Ross Neilson said. “We strive to reward the hard work of our members at the local level, as well as recognise their contribution to the network as a whole. “In so doing, we hold them up as shining examples from which others can learn and grow, but in a fun, team-building and motivating manner.”

MFC to host 30th AGM MALLEE Family Care will celebrate its 30th Annual General Meeting in style next Friday, December 11, with the group to launch its book ‘Harder the Ground, Softer the People’. The book, authored by writer and historian Rob Linn, showcases the insights and experiences of those involved with the organisation, whilst outlining the group’s extensive history within the region. Many of the group’s patrons and directors, including Executive Director Vernon Knight, share their memories, painting a picture of not just the organisation, but also the community throughout that time. In addition former ANZ Banking Group Chief Economist Saul Eslake will act as guest speaker, with discussions to focus on the challenges local businesses are facing as part of the Global Financial Crisis. Mr Knight said that the GFC had started to affect not for profit organisation like the MFC, making the visit a vital one for the organisation. “We need to ensure that agencies like Mallee Family Care can meet the challenges being

presented, and ensure the association’s financial and functional sustainability,” he said. “Mr Eslake has international standing, and is well placed to guide our agency in its planning for the future. “It’s our hope that this visit will be of benefit to Mallee Family Care and the many other important organisations that are grappling with the issue of survival at a time when both Government funding and charitable dollars are difficult to source.” Mr Eslake will also address the Mildura Development Corporation, in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Mildura and Mildura Young Professionals as part of his visit. Mallee Family Care’s 30th AGM will be held next Friday, December 11 from 10.30am at the Mildura campus of LaTrobe University. More information is available by contacting 522 1065.

Allocate

NO PREFERENCES I will bring a fresh view to the council, free from any political or family affiliations and have the corporate expertise, time and energy to commit to the role of Councillor. My vision for the Shire includes more action on  Buronga/Gol Gol area’s potential for development as a catalyst for increased development in each Shire township  investment and economic development to create jobs and attract new residents  introduction of waste re-cycling trials, container deposit legislation and support for environmental protection programs  development and promotion of a strategy for our Shire as a tourist destination in its own right  leadership development and retention of our youth and skilled workforce, including transitional arrangements for those affected by rural adjustment  and enhancing the liveability and attraction of the Shire for both young families and retirees. I have 40 years of corporate business experience, with particular skills in financial analysis, corporate governance, policy formulation and strategic management to bring to Council, which I believe will augment the current set of skills and experience well.

I MUST secure the majority of the PRIMARY VOTE to be elected, Vote 1 – Bill Brook and ALLOCATE NO PREFERENCES. Authorised by Bill Brook, Lot 3, River Road, Pomona NSW 2648

Our Josh is ‘top gun’ By BEN PISCIONERI SUNRAYSIA’S Josh Waters has the motorcycle road race world at his feet. The talented 22-year-old dominated the final round of the Australian Superbike Championship last weekend at Phillip Island to clinch the title, making him one of the select few to win the title in his debut year. Waters went into the round two points behind series leader Glenn Allerton, but proceeded to sweep all before him to take the title, despite a few nerves early in the weekend. “I was really nervious before the weekend, maybe trying a bit too hard on the Friday,” he said this week after returning to Mildura. “On Friday, I wasn’t happy with how I went. I was trying to make too many changes and then on Friday night I sat down with Phil (Phil Tainton - team boss) and we put everything back to what I knew was fast previously.” The next day, despite interruptions caused by rain, Waters was much more comfortable on the bike and by Sunday’s (race day) morning warm-up he was back on the pace, just under the lap record. In his own words, “I knew it was game on for race day”. Waters blitzed his opposition in the opening race of the weekend tak-

ing the win by a comfortable 6.1 seconds, setting the quickest lap time of the race by more than a second. It was then down to the second and final race of the weekend. Waters shot off the start line and immediately built up a comfortable lead, which was when he realised he was in a championship-winning position. “After about three laps, I thought, ‘I’m on for it’, because I gapped them quite fast. I think after three laps I had a four or five second lead. Then I thought, have I gone too hard? But in the end it worked out perfectly,” he said. Though Waters did admit to a few nervous moments as he completed those last laps. “I was thinking, gee what’s going to go wrong? Don’t crash, don’t crash,” he said. “I actually ran wide a few times, but it wasn’t too bad. “The team was letting me know where Glenn (Allerton) was at all times via the pit board. “Then, near the end, I had a quick look behind and saw my team mate, Shaw Giles, was a couple of seconds behind me in second, so I knew that if anything happened he was there to help me.” The rest of the race played out perfectly for Waters, who cruised home to win by more than three seconds. It’s since been a whirlwind ride for the 22-year-old. “I’ve had a lot of contact from overseas, people quite high up congratulating me, which is pretty amazing. I didn’t think that too many people would be watching,” he said. Waters has been inundated by the national and international media this week, doing countless radio, magazine and internet site interviews. His bike will be the subject of numerous national magazine features over coming weeks, as national journalists clamber to test ride the championship-winning bike and the man who piloted it in one of the most competitive superbike championships in recent years. The 22-year-old’s championship status is already being capitalised on by Suzuki. He’s been invited as the star attraction at a Suzuki shop opening this weekend.

Despite the attention and accolades, Waters has stayed true to his roots, and said he’s looking forward to racing at the track where his career began - the North West Victorian Motorcycle Club’s (NWVMCC) Jambaroo Park, next weekend. Waters will compete in the first ever Shuffs Cup, held in memory of popular NWVMCC member Duane Woodberry, who passed away last

year. “I haven’t raced dirt track for a long time, so it will be good to get back and race with my mates again,” he said. In terms of his plans for next year, it’s very much a wait-and-see situation, though Waters says he hopes to race at least one World Superbike Championship round, possible the opening round at Phillip Island in

February, as a wildcard entry. “If all goes well, I’d like to do a few World Superbike rides as a wildcard, but there’s nothing in concrete A TOYOTA Waters GROUP COMwas PANY beatyet,” he said.

THE first ever World Speedway Sidecar champions, Mick Headland and Paul Waters, from Murray Bridge will be at Mildura’s Olympic Park Speedway this Sunday night for the opening of a hectic 2009/2010 speedway season. Headland and Waters will be among a top group of A-grade sidecar riders to race in the meeting, which will feature a strong B-grade sidecar field, a solo field, which includes plenty of riders with international experience as well as a fast group of quad riders, who are certain to burn up the dirt of the Olympic Park track.

Meet and greet Headland and Waters have offered to bring all their gear, trophies and memorabilia down the Olympic Park clubrooms from 2pm Sunday. This will allow sidecar fans to get up close and personal and speak to them about their success in France in August. It will be a wonderful opportunity for fans to bring the family down to Olympic Park to meet and greet the first ever world champions. Many fans will be amazed to see the race ma-

sidecar riders are used to, but Headland and his diminutive passenger Waters, won all five heats and became the first ever World Sidecar Champions. Headland and Waters both enjoy riding the tighter confines of Olympic Park and they will have their work cut out for them against the other seven teams which will contest their division. Local stars, Byren Gates/ Mick O’Loughlin, Jason Bradshaw/Simon Cohrs, Warren Monson/Deven Gates, Andrew O’Rourke/ Jason Mayes will be joined by 2008 second place getters in the World Gold Cup, Rick Howse/Adam Commons, from Broken Hill and Melbourne pair, Mark Radford/ Steven Stagg who will make up the riders to contest the top group. The local riders put on a hot display at the season Shakedown at Olympic Park last month, when many spectators thought that some of the sidecar practice

runs were reminiscent of a heat from last year’s Australian Sidecar Championship back in March.

Action packed The riding on that night was fast and furious, which indicates that the racing all night this Sunday night will be just as keenly contested. The solo class of racing will be of vital interest to many riders as both the Australian Solo Championship and the Australian Under 21 Championship will both be held in Mildura during January 2010. Track time at Mildura’s Olympic Park circuit is of interest to many of Australia’s younger riders, so the field in the Solo division for this Sunday is strong, with some imports of note coming to ride against the locals in the field. Sheffield and Coventry rider, Josh Auty, a young Englishman, is coming down from Queensland with northerner, Damian Koppe, to compete against the Sedgmen brothers, Ryan and Justin, Brock Gates and Jason Stewart. Joining this group will be Shepparton rider, Jake Anderson, who, like the locals, showed some good form at the Shakedown.

that plenty of his people come out to Olympic Park to support him. Just 12 months ago Sooty was only riding in the far north of Western Australia and has now taken on the world, a great credit to him. He mentioned earlier in the year that he had an ambition to come and ride Olympic Park, as he has been told by the likes of Steve Johnson, that to do well in Australia and world speedway, a rider has to be able to ride Mildura well. A good selection of Bgrade sidecars will add to the Sunday night spectacle, with the group being very even, demonstrating the strength of sidecars in this area.

B-grade racing Many of the B-grade riders are pushing for selection in the top flight, so watch for the sparks to fly from many of them this week. The two Milner brothers, with their passengers against Broken Hill’s Rick Stephens/Dean Hobbs and Kel O’Neill/Peter Harvy, taking on the Munro brothers Scott and former West Coast Eagle, Kane and the newlook Chris Holmes/Neale Hancock team, now riding

Great interest will be created by the visit of Samsurry ‘Sooty’ Pigram, a young Western Australian Aboriginal boy who rides like the wind. Sooty rode in the Western Big One at Western Australian track, Pinjar Park last January, in the same field as Leigh Adams and Cory Gathercole and acquitted himself well. During this past European winter, Pigram took himself off to England to learn the ropes of being a professional rider in the UK, taking some rides at meetings around the UK. With a large aboriginal community in Sunraysia, Sooty has expressed a wish

a very fast machine will see many of this class move up a grade very quickly.

Chris and Mitch set for world soccer journey By VINNIE RODI

TWO of Sunraysia’s up and coming soccer players, Chris Romeo, 19, and Mitch Brown, 17, will embark on the trip of a lifetime next year, after earning selection in the Australian Football Skool’s (AFS) Under 19 and 17 squads. The pair will first travel to London where they’ll take part in training camps run by elite coaches and players (including a training run with the Arsenal and Fulham Football Club’s juniors), before taking part in the International Youth Tournament to be held in Barcelona in April. The tournament will see the best young players from around the world compete, with scouts and selectors to be present. Both youngsters said that the trip would be an “opportunity of a lifetime”, and that excitement was starting to build. “I just want the opportunity to give 100 percent,” Chris said. “It’s going to be an amazing experience, and a story I can one day tell my children. “If nothing else come of this, in terms of getting noticed by other clubs or groups, I’ll still be proud of my achievements, and I’m looking forward to the challenge.” Mitch said that he was also proud to have the chance to represent both his hometown and country overseas. “I’m very proud to represent Australia and Mildura,” he said. “The chance to play overseas is a once in a life time opportunity, and I’m really looking forward to it.”

The pair have been training with the AFS, a program dedicated to developing and training gifted players, for 12 months, approached by local officials to participate in the group’s summer program. “I thought it would be a great way to stay fit, while providing an opportunity to go and play for state teams,” Chris said. “I didn’t really expect anything to come from it, and I’m really glad that I gave it a go.” Mitch said that he had also decided to join the AFS as a way to keep up his form, after playing arguably his best season with local team Irymple Knights. “By the end of the season I thought I was playing some of my best soccer,” he said. “And originally I wasn’t going to do it. “I then realised that it could be a way to keep my form going throughout the summer, so I decided to give it a go.” Mitch said another reason he had joined the AFS was due to the group’s goalkeeper-specific training and development sessions, something not widely available in Mildura. “Goalkeeping is still something that I’m relatively new at,” he said. “I’ve only been doing it for four seasons, and the training programs the AFS have are fantastic.” After the initial invitation the duo began playing matches with the Mildura Mallee AFS side, playing against fellow AFS teams from Northwest, Monash, Central and Casey. The 2009 AFS Championships were next, with pressure mounting due to selectors looking for talented

youngsters to represent Australia in London and Barcelona. Both Mitch and Chris impressed in their individual matches, earning a call-up at the AFS Championship’s presentation night. “When they called my name I honestly sat there in shock,” Chris said. “I got off my chair, weak in the knees, and approached the stage, where I was presented with a medal,

with,” Chris said. “We would leave at 4am, and get there in time to play a game at 11am. Eventually we realised that flying was the best option, mainly because by the time we got there we’d be too tired to play.” Mitch said that while he couldn’t attend ever training session in Melbourne due to the distance and cost, he was training locally twice a week with the Under 18s Loddon Mallee

and then welcomed into the team by officials and players.” Only 20 players out of 120 made it through each level, with Chris and Mitch amongst the select bunch. From there training started to intensify, with both Chris and Mitch having to commit to training sessions held in Keysborough (a 45 minute drive from the Melbourne’s Tullamarine airport). “Dad drove us down to begin

Lightening Football Club. Chris on the other hand said he had been spending every spare moment getting in extra running and training sessions at Aero Ovals, ensuring that his skills were sharp for the tour. In addition to attending compulsory training sessions the AFS also required members to commit financially, with players having to pay $1000 per month to maintain their spots.

Chris and Mitch both said that between flights, taxis and the monthly deposits, their individual AFS experiences had started to become expensive. “It’s been hard on both Mitch’s and my parents, but we’ve managed to keep up with the payments and the training sessions,” Chris said. “It’s been worth it,” Mitch added. “We’re receiving a fantastic opportunity to travel overseas and play in arenas that we’ve only ever seen on TV. “So while it’s definitely been tough, it’s paid off in the end.” Both Chris and Mitch said that they would be approaching a number of local businesses for sponsorships, while seeking scholarships and grants from Mallee Sports Assembly and the Sunraysia Academy of Sport. “So far we haven’t had much luck with sponsorships,” Chris said. “Vicki Telfer from the Sunraysia Academy of Sport has been a big help, and we’re hoping some local businesses will help us out.” And while the boys have mainly had to raise the money themselves, they haven’t been entirely on their own, with their club, Irymple, recently hosting a fundraiser which raised $2000. “That was a huge help, and really overwhelming,” Mitch said. “And it certainly helped take a bit of pressure off.” Businesses who would like to sponsor Chris or Mitch can contact Karen Bulman on 0419 573 690 or Sandra Romeo on 0428 242 843, with the boys set to leave for London at the end of March 2010.

Boys tell of humble soccer beginnings

A Daimler Brand

WHILE both Chris Romeo and Mitch Brown have risen to great heights so far in their budding soccer careers, their individual beginnings in the sport couldn’t be any different. Chris’ career started at an older age than most players associated with the sport, with his early years dedicated to football with the Irymple Swallows Football Club. He quickly made the switch to tennis, playing in Red Cliffs and Mildura, becoming a member of the Mildura squad, going on to represent the region at a number of tournaments. At 14, he decided to give

soccer a go, joining the Three Colours Soccer Club’s Under 15s side under coach Nick Mammone. “I’d always enjoyed watching soccer on television,” Chris said. “And my uncle was heavily involved with the sport locally so I thought I’d give it a try.” Chris said that Nick had taught him all the skills and tactics associated with the sport, helping him adapt to the game. He said his background in football and tennis had also helped, with most of the reflex and hand-eye coordination needed for those sports also relevant to soccer.

Midway through his second season Chris found himself playing from the seniors’ bench, and by his Under 18 days had been named captain of his junior team. In 2007 Chris was a permanent fixture in the seniors, earning the ‘most improved player’ award in the same year. The following year saw him make the move to his current club Irymple Knights, where he had another fantastic year finishing equal best and fairest with two other players. For Mitch, his beginnings in the sport started like any ordinary soccer player, with

the 17-year-old kicking his first ball during lunch times at Mildura South Primary School. He said he soon realised that he had a real passion for the sport, joining the Cosmos Soccer Club (now White Stars) in 2003. In 2006 he made the move to the Irymple Knights, where with help from senior goalkeeper Dave Morello, he discovered his passion for keeping. “Dave really helped me develop my skills,” he said. “I owe a lot to Dave, who really taught me the basics to keeping. “One of my aims for the

future is to help set-up more coaching for local keepers, because I know personally it was a great help having someone experienced help me out.” During his four seasons with the club Mitch has won three ‘goalkeeper of the year’ awards for Sunraysia, and been a Mildura representative. He said that given the right opportunities he believed he could carve a career in the sport. “I love soccer, and feel that I can be really good at it, given an opportunity,” he said. In addition to his recent

AFS selection, Mitch has also received an invitation to attend a Football Federation Victoria national training centre youth program in Melbourne next year, where he will be training five days a week, while studying a Diploma of Sport and Recreation. He said that he will attend a final interview for the spot later this month, and if successful, will make the move to Melbourne next year. “I’m really excited to see if I can get through,” he said. “It would be an amazing opportunity to not only try and launch my career, but to also learn more about coaching, and the sport in general.”

Tybias and Luke a ‘knockabout’ pair

• WINNING SMILES: Tybias Smith and Luke Eves were all smiles after their wins, with coach Mick Moloney (middle) showing off their respective trophies (ABOVE), while Luke receives some advice from Mick during his fight (RIGHT).

LOCAL Mildura Martial Arts fighters Tybias Smith, 18, and Luke Eves, 20, recently made history, becoming the first locals to compete at a Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) event. Held in Melbourne’s Chelsea Heights Hotel on November 22, the duo competed in the ‘Fightforce’ promotion ‘Chelsea Under Fire 15’, with both youngsters managing to win their respective bouts. MMA is a relatively new concept in Australia, with the sport a huge phenomenon in the United States, especially through cage fighting organisation Ultimate Fighting Championship. Matches employ a number of fighting styles including striking techniques like kicks, knees and punches, and grappling techniques like clinch holds, pinning holds, submissions, sweeps, takedowns and throws. Fights at this event were fought in a normal box-

ing ring rather than a cage, a change for both fighters who are used to open mat areas. Renshinkan Mixed Martial Arts coach Mick Moloney said that the duo’s achievements had been incredible given their relatively short time in the sport. “Both Tybias and Luke come from boxing backgrounds, and have only been training under MMA rules for a short time,” he said. “For them to come home winners in their first event is fantastic, and could open the door for future fights and career opportunities down the road.” Mick said that promoters had labelled both Tybias’ and Luke’s fights as two of the event’s better bouts, with the Melbourne crowd taking a liking to the two skilled fighters. “There was something like 1100 people there,” Mick said. “Which is the biggest crowd these guys

have ever fought in front of. “They both performed really well, and did themselves and Mildura Martial Arts proud.” Twelve fights in total were held at the event, including seven kickboxing matches, two Muay Thai bouts, three MMA bouts, and one South Pacific Kickboxing title fight. Luke kicked things off, competing in a Muay Thai match against a much taller opponent, with both competitors wearing eight ounce gloves and shin guards. At 62 kilograms Luke fought three two minute rounds, eventually winning by a unanimous points decision. Luke said that prior to the fight he had been con-

“I actually had the chance to chat to him at the weigh-in, before either of us knew we’d be fighting one another,” he said. “I knew he had more experience, and that it was going to be tough to beat him. It was really exciting to win, and the crowd was unbelievable.” Mick said a number of MMA promoters had already enquired about the Luke and Tybias’ availability for future events. “And that’s really encouraging,” he said. “MMA is going to be a huge force in Australia, and a career is certainly there for the taking if these guys want it. “I’ve already had a number of promoters wanting to book the guys for future bouts, so now it’s just

cerned about his opponent’s long reach. “He was 6”2’, and I’m about 5”2’,” he said. “I spoke to Mick about it, and I knew I had to get close and take that advantage away. “I took a couple of good hits in the process, but I was pretty determined to win, and I knew I just had to be confident.” Tybias, who became the first person from Mildura to fight in an official MMA bout, weighed in at 66.8 kilograms, with his opponent having the advantage at 68.9 kilograms. Wearing only two ounce gloves, Tybias fought three three minute rounds of stand up and ground fighting, eventually winning the match by knockout at two minutes and 55 seconds in the last round. Tybias said that his opponent, who had a wealth of experience, had proven a difficult challenge.

a matter of waiting to see what happens.” Tybias and Luke both said that they would look to expand their professional fighting options. “I don’t know whether it’s something I want to do as a career, but for now I’m certainly excited to see what’s going to happen, and participate in as many fights as I can,” Tybias said. “If the opportunity is there I’m certainly going to take it, but at the moment I’m just enjoying what I’m doing.” Luke said that he recommended more locals to get involved with the sport. “Just fitness wise it’s great,” he said. “I highly recommend people to give it a go, it’s great for your confidence, and it’s a lot of fun.” More information about Mildura Martial Arts is available at www.rskmma.com, or by calling Mick on 0427 567 798.

MIXED Martial Arts, or MMA fighting, is still a relatively new concept in Australia, with the majority of spectators, and in some cases budding fighters, still trying to get their heads around the growing sport. The techniques used in mixed martial arts generally fall into two categories; striking techniques, including kicks, knees and punches, and grappling techniques, such as clinch holds, pinning holds, submissions, sweeps, takedowns and throws. Modern mixed martial arts first emerged in America in 1993, with the founding of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Initially based on finding the most effective martial arts for real unarmed combat situations, competitors of various arts were pitted against one another with minimal rules or concern for safety.

Ten years later and MMA promoters had adopted a number of additional rules, all aimed at increasing safety for competitors, whilst promoting mainstream acceptance of the sport. In a competitive sense, the rules allowed participants to use both striking and grappling techniques, whilst fighting both upright and on the ground, allowing martial artists of different backgrounds to compete. MMA training excludes all of the nonrealistic parts of traditional martial arts syllabus, with the belief that traditional techniques, like forms, patterns and kata, along with punching boards are useless in this day and age. While these traditional martial arts are still taught to juniors as part of their initial syllabus, it is mainly used as a foundation, helping participants

reach a certain point in their training. Today, mixed martial artists train to combat a variety of styles, including learning to counter their opponent’s strengths, and remain effective in all phases of combat. For instance, a stand-up fighter will have little opportunity to use their skills against a submission artist, who has also trained in takedowns and ground work. The majority of ‘real fights’ end up on the ground, and a big emphasis is placed on ground-fighting whilst training. In Mildura student’s are encouraged to use what works best for them, adapting their natural ‘game’ to work for their body type, strengths and weaknesses.
