or several years, a man had been having an affair with an Italian woman. One night, she confided to him that she was pregnant. Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, he paid her a large sum of money if she would go back to Italy to secretly have the child. Also, if she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would provide child support until the child turned 18. She agreed, but asked how he would know when the baby was born. To keep it discreet, he told her to simply mail him a post card, and write ‘Spaghetti’ on the back when the child was born. He would then arrange for the Child Support Payments to begin. One day, about 8 months later, he came home to his confused wife. “Honey,” she said, “You received a very strange post card today.” “Oh, just give it to me and I’ll explain it later,” he said. The wife obeyed and watched as her husband read the card, turned white, and fainted. On the card was written: Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti. Three with meatballs, two without. Send extra sauce.

Debate over ATV crush protection By BEN PISCIONERI A NEW push to have roll-over protection installed on all quad bikes has been opposed by the motorcycle industry. The Australian Centre for Agricultural Health and Safety has written to hundreds of motorcycle dealers warning they could be liable if they continued to sell quad bikes (also known as ATVs) without roll-over protection. The letter followed legal advice stating suppliers must provide equipment that was safe to use. While the majority of Sunraysia’s four motorcycle dealerships have yet to receive the warning, they are united in their opposition to the proposal, claiming it will do little to improve safety. Mildura Motorcycles owner Adrian Ginn said the proposal had problems on two fronts. Mr Ginn said firstly there was no standardised protection system on the market, which would make it difficult for dealers to source and install them, and secondly he believed the key to improving safety lay in rider training. “No-one in Australia, America and probably a lot of other countries as well, has been able to find a system that works on all makes and models that is going to be reliable,” he said. “Instead, I think an industrybased training scheme of some description has got to be used, which could be sub-contracted out to an organisation like AustLink.”

Mr Ginn said every quad bike sold from his shop was accompanied by a comprehensive training DVD or brochure, instructing users on how to operate the bike, providing a large list of safety precautions. Quick-Fix Motorcycles owner Gavin Walker said he didn’t believe roll-over protection should be mandatory, adding it was not

They’ve been by recreational users. “Not many people that I know that use one on a farm on a regular basis have ever been hurt that I know of and I deal with them all every other day.” Mr Walker said roll-over protection should not be made mandatory on quad bikes. “I definitely don’t think it

should be mandatory,” he said. “The education that is out there about these vehicles is fantastic, but the legislation that has been produced saying they are dangerous is because these bureaucrats have come up with these figures, but they’re not the people out there in the field. “We talk to the farmers, we

New hands on our City Heart THERE will soon be new hands on the helm of the Mildura City Heart. Tess Lane will take over the City Heart manager’s role on May 30, replacing Richard Morfaw. Ms Lane brings 25 years of marketing and media experience to the role, most recently working as general manager of WIN TV Mildura and as an employment consultant focusing on retail, hospitality and horticulture with Sunraysia Murray Group Training. Before moving to Mildura several years ago, Ms Lane was manager at WIN TV Riverland

and has previously worked in the retail industry. Mildura City Heart chairman Graeme Burrows said Ms Lane has arrived at an exciting time for the central business district. “The City Heart is moving into a new era,” Mr Burrows said. “In the last six months we have moved into incorporation, creating a new organisation, Mildura City Heart Inc., that operates independently from Mildura Rural City Council. “We have developed a new strategic plan for Tess to implement. Then of course the mall refurbishment looking to be fi-

nalised in September, the City Heart will be completely revitalised.” Ms Lane said she was equally pleased to take on the role at such a pivotal time. “I’m really looking forward to the redevelopment of the mall being completed and all the buzz that will surround that,” she said. “I hope to develop innovative, fresh ideas that will bring benefits to the traders of the City Heart and consumers as well. “I’ll be encouraging input and involvement from as many City Heart businesses as possible.”

know what they want, we know what they like and we understand them. “There’s no way you could ride with a roll cage in some of the areas where they round up sheep in blue bush country and hot bush country.” Sunset Cycles owner Des Woodberry was similarly opposed to the push for roll-over protection. “I think it would create more problems than it would solve,” Mr Woodberry said. “I mean, are they talking about seatbelts as well? Because if they’re not, I can see people getting crushed by the roll bars in a crash. “And if they are talking about seatbelts, I can’t see it being feasible, because a lot of farmers are constantly on and off their bikes. Suzuki Magic owner Rose Ayling meanwhile said she was concerned dealers would be at more risk of litigation if they sold quad bikes with roll-over protection fitted at dealerships. “I’m not a manufacturer, so if I fitted roll-over protection to a bike that we sold and someone was injured because of that roll-over protection I would liable, not the manufacturer of the bike,” Ms Ayling said. Most local dealers contacted by the Mildura Weekly this week pointed out the recent farming fatality at a Nangiloc property involving a four-wheel vehicle was not a quad bike. It was what is classed as a ‘side-by-side’ or ‘mule’, which was fitted with a full roll cage.

Vanilla Slice Triumph on the move AFTER almost 14 years, Ouyen will hold its last iconic Great Australian Vanilla Slice Triumph in September. But the good news is, the event could still remain in the Mallee, following a bid by the Mildura City Heart to take over the event. Organisers in Ouyen say rather than see the event wane, they’d prefer the event’s final year in Ouyen be one to remember before handing it to another town. The event started in 1998 after a visit to Ouyen the previous year by then Victorian Premier Jeff Kennett. His personal desire for the perfect Vanilla Slice, a chance visit to the Mallee Bakery, where he sampled its slice, and a desire to do something for rural Victoria sparked national interest in what would become Ouyen’s Great Australian Vanilla Slice Triumph. The event has since attracted about 30,000 visitors, 2000 entrants and generated about $3.5million for the town. Ouyen Incorporated chairman, Mark Wilson, announced this week it was time for another town to take over the event, but was keen to see Ouyen’s last Great Australian Vanilla Slice Triumph one to remember. “We’re looking to celebrate the proud achievements of the

community in hosting this event for the past 14 years,” Mr Wilson said this week. “It’s a compliment to the town of Ouyen that the event has attracted so much national interest. “We want to see the event survive, and the community of Ouyen has done all it can for the event, and rather than see it wane, we want to celebrate the fact that it started with a bang and we want to see it finish here with a bang.” Mr Wilson said there had already been significant interest from other towns keen to host the event. He said in the hours after this week’s announcement, he’d received several serious expressions of interest from other areas, including the Otways and Echuca. But in the following days, Mildura City Heart chairman Graeme Burrows announced city traders would be keen to see the event staged in Mildura. “The Vanilla Slice Triumph showcases some of the finest bakers in Australia and is a very sought after prize,” Mr Burrows said. “Mildura’s biggest retail precinct would host the event with the newly refurbished Langtree Mall the ideal setting.” Mildura Mayor John Arnold

was similarly enthusiastic at seeing the event remain in the region. “Mildura Rural City Council has an existing funding arrangement with the Great Australian Vanilla Slice Triumph which I will discuss with all the councillors, however I can see no reason why this support would not continue,” Cr Arnold said. “We look forward to working with Mildura City Heart board and management in ensuring continued growth and capitalising on this wonderful opportunity.” Mildura City Heart committee member, Dale Stafford, said Mildura had the potential to grow the event. “It’s been great for tourism, as Ouyen has seen and it has created about $3.5million, but with the services and resources that Mildura has I believe we can grow it even further,” Mr Stafford said. “There are a lot of other regions that are going to put their hands up for the event, but fortunately Ouyen Inc. have stated that they want to keep it in this region, so we’re hoping we can work with Ouyen Inc. to secure it.” Mr Wilson said while this year would be the final time Ouyen hosted the event, the town would continue to benefit from it.

•  UNDER THE MICROSCOPE: Judging the greatest Australian vanilla slice is serious business. “The community of Ouyen as part of the Mildura municipality has delivered extraordinary bang for the buck,” he said. “Hosting this iconic event has enhanced Ouyen’s reputation as a community who have the ability to deliver great things. “The successful hosting of

this event has provided a national profile for Ouyen and the Mildura region, something we can all be very proud of.” This year’s Great Australian Vanilla Slice Triumph will be held on Friday, September 2.

Fatality near Ouyen A 39-YEAR-OLD man died and a Mallee farmer was lucky to escape serious injury after a headon collision near Ouyen on Tuesday. The collision occurred just before 9am on the Mallee Highway, about three kilometres west of Ouyen. Police say the 39-year-old drifted to the wrong side of the road before colliding with the farmer’s utility. The impact tore the rear tray from the utility, killing a dog that had been in the tray. The 39-yearold has been identified as South Australian Michael Haywood. This week’s incident bring’s Victoria’s road toll this year to 118, nine more than the same time last year.

A story that will shock you

THE Catholic Church continues to be rocked by revelations of paedophile priests within its ranks. Even worse come reports of cover-ups, as church leaders are accused of protecting these sexual predators from prosecution. Shocking reports of abuse going back many decades have been widely reported in several European countries, the United States, and here in Australia. The case of serial offender, the now disgraced and jailed Father Gerald Ridsdale of Melbourne, has been widely documented. Another case that hasn’t been so widely exposed is that of Mildura’s Monsignor John Day, a systematic child molester during the time he was head of the Catholic Parish in Sunraysia. That is about to change with the planned release of a book, ‘Fools, for Christ’s Sake,’ the story of John Day through the eyes of the highly-respected former Mildura detective Denis Ryan, written by a friend, Ruth Colben, one of the few female victims of John Day, and the first one to give the then Detective Ryan a statement. Denis and Ruth are hoping

that a publisher will pick up the manuscript to convert to book form this year. Denis, now approaching 80, investigated the case of John Day, took statements from victims and others, only to have it all ‘swept under the carpet’ by the church, with the help of then high-ranking police officers, church leaders and others in positions of power and authority – all Catholics. Denis doesn’t mince his words. Highly commended for his early police work, sticking to the motto of the Victoria Police - Uphold The Right,’ it was his job to catch crooks and put them away, and he could never understand why John Day was never held accountable for some of the terrible crimes he committed against innocent and susceptible Mildura children, again and again. Ruth is of the same opinion. She says there were many victims in Mildura, long before she was molested, and she says ‘Fools For Christ’s Sake’ attempts to look at the reasons why the investigation was stymied, and coming to grips with the fact that the directive from the church was a general one, issued

by the Vatican itself to cover all allegations of abuse over many years. “It was the narrowminded Catholics in law enforcement who carried this practice on, and never questioned why,” she said. But it didn’t just start in Mildura. Our story goes back to the days when Denis Ryan was an enthusiastic, conscientious and astute young constable of police, patrolling the seedy streets of St Kilda with fellow officers. It was here that he first came across Father John Day. It was an encounter he remembers vividly to this day, but little did he know way back then the impact it was to have on his private and professional life. The manuscript by Denis and Ruth (formerly Pinnington) is a ‘tell-all’ document, giving facts that previously have never been exposed. Ruth remembers those dark days of her life well, and like Denis, doesn’t pull any punches in a gripping and shocking expose of one of the worse cases of systematic child abuse – and associated cover-ups, in Australia’s history. Denis believes that what he uncovered – and

he has all the documentation, statements and Freedom of Information material to prove his claims – is just the tip of the iceberg as far as Day is concerned. He believes there are many more victims, many of them now respected members of the Mildura community, carrying dark secrets from all those years ago. When Denis was tying up the ‘loose ends’ of the manuscript, he sought advice and guidance from long-time family friend and now Mildura Weekly editor ALAN ERSKINE, who started a career in journalism about the time that Father John Day arrived in Mildura. Alan remembers meeting Day on several occasions, and through his work had regular contact with the other main players mentioned in the book, including Detective Jim Barritt and Clerk of courts Joe Kearney. Alan was shocked, but not surprised, by the revelations in ‘Fools, for Christ’s Sake.’ He recalls whispers and rumours around at the time, and like Denis, couldn’t understand why nothing was being done. The manuscript goes a long way to explaining the reasons. The lengthy and thorough investigation by

The disgraced Father John Day. Denis eventually cost him his job, but he has never wavered from his strong belief that Day should have been brought to justice. He says the story has to be told, and that’s why, with Ruth, he has been gathering evidence for the past three decades. The manuscript is just as much about the strength of character of Denis Ryan and Ruth Colben as it is about the depravity of John Day. This is the first of our reports.

Deceit, corruption at highest level

DENIS Ryan writes in the foreword of the book he co-authored that what people are about to read is a story about unimaginable sordidness and depravity committed by a priest upon the children of his parishes. He says it is also about the deceit, corruption and arrogance of the Catholic Church in Ballarat as it protected the priest. It is also about corruption at the highest level of police administration as it colluded with the church to cover up its own inadequacies in the face of such an inquiry. “It is about tolerance, and thereby endorsement of depravity against children by the influential for the sake of power,” he says. Denis says his forced resignation from ‘The Job’ in 1972 was brought about by when he terms “the Catholic Mafia within Police hierarchy at that time.” “Tenez le Droit (Uphold the Right) was transcribed for many years on the cap badge of Victoria Police,” he writes. “It is a most noble inscription, and a motto worn proudly by all who graduated from the Victoria Police Academy. “Keeping the meaning of this motto at the forefront was a challenge to all graduates, most of who served within the true meaning of the phrase, abiding by the law they had solemnly sworn to uphold with honesty and integrity. There were some, however, who believed they

Looking for a publisher

“As a young constable, I discovered a deviate priest in a most compromising state in the early hours of the morning on a St. Kilda street. Little did I know that this despicable cleric would change the course of my life forever.” – Denis Ryan (LEFT)

could bend this phrase to fit around their already-skewed understanding of their religious practises and faiths. “This flagrant abuse of the law by the law-keepers brought great emotional and mental pain to men and women throughout Victoria.” Denis says it is hard to understand why these police took the directions they did, changing the laws to suit themselves, for the sake of themselves and their religion. “What these Police officers did was criminal in itself,” he said. “It breached both common and statute laws of Victoria, and had resounding consequences for the perpetrators of

the crimes. “The fact is there were no punitive consequences for the perpetrators of these crimes within the Department because they were also the investigators. These wayward members were recruited through the formation of the Victoria Police Force, and they in turn exerted influence over other members of the same faiths with promised benefits within the ranks. “They served the Roman Catholic Church, not the Catholic faith which is a beautiful Christian faith.” Denis says the book is about injustice, caused through blind adherence to a corrupt institution. The injustice was done to young people within the Archdiocese of Ballarat by the clergy. It was then ‘endorsed’ by the majority of individuals at high levels within the

church administration. “This was then compounded by selected members of the police force because they refused to investigate the crimes and bring the perpetrator to justice,” he said. “I am hoping that this book will have people question why the Church would sanction sexual crimes against its children by some of its priests. These crimes involve the most disgusting and sickening acts against children. “In my view, because of the effects such brutality has on young minds, the crime itself is more grievous than the crime of murder. “The evidence here is so overpowering as to the complicity involved at all levels of the church strata.

This is a bare bones adventure. There is no support crew. Just two blokes, a canoe, minimal

Daring duo in down By GRANT MAYNARD THE flash flood caught them napping… literally, and the morning light revealed the loss of several personal items and their supply of coffee. But that self-same unexpected flood also proved to be a blessing, providing enough water under their canoe for two Queensland adventurers to continue their river odyssey. It is just one example of the providence that has accompanied Dan Suttle, 36, and Travis Ewan, 30, throughout their epic journey. There are four things that strike you not long after you start talking to Dan and Travis. First, they are probably the friendliest blokes you will ever meet. Second, they have an enthusiasm for travel, and Australia’s great outdoors second-to-none. Third, they have one hell of a story to tell. And fourth, they have a strong faith that everything is as it should be, and that everything will be alright in the end. The pair has been knocking around as mates for the past 10 years, and although this is their first big adventure together, they are both well-travelled individuals. They met working as electrical and mechanical technicians during the setup of the Nestle bottling factory at Gympie in 2001. Dan is originally from Dysart, near Emerald, but now lives at Rainbow Beach, while Travis grew up at Wondai, and says he is yet to find a place to put down roots. “I guess I am a Wondai nomad,” he says. Both give the impression of being men of simple needs... and pleasures, and they share many things in common besides their electrical trade background, including a love of the outdoors and being infected with the travel bug. Both have used their trade to work their way around different parts of

this country, and overseas as well, agreeing that having a trade has been a good thing, allowing them to earn the money they need to indulge their twin passions – a need to see new places and meet new people. And so it was for the latest adventure – a canoe trip down the Darling River. They have now been on the river, or its tributaries, for the past 80 days, and have travelled more than 2500 kilometres. • Continued next page

• UP THE CREEK: Striking rain early in their trip, ABOVE, has been the least of Dan and Travis’ challenges. Snags, like the one, LEFT, blocking their passage have been a greater challenge. They have often had to unpack their canoe, lift it over the obstacle and repack it again. Their gear can be seen perched on the snag in the foreground of this photograph as they work to get over it. Also note the old, wrecked ute on the riverbank, TOP. Not the first they had seen, and it probably won’t be the last!

tinue… only to find they had to repeat the process soon after. They lost count of the number of times they found themselves up to the waist or armpits in water, trying to negotiate the canoe around an obstacle. It proved to be exhausting work at times, but they had no set timetable and were therefore able to tackle the obstacles as they found them and take a breather when they needed it. To add to the challenge, the water level in the rivers was falling as the floodwaters made their way downstream ahead of them, or spread out across the floodplains. “We were a bit worried we were going to get stranded with no water under the canoe in the middle of nowhere,” Dan confessed. Then came the night of the flash flood. The pair had made camp on the riverbank, not far from where the Balonne joins the Culgoa. They were blissfully unaware that the powers that be were about to release some water from a weir upstream. They knew something had happened the next morning when some of their belongings, including a set of Travis’ sandals and their coffee supply had been washed away during the night.

When it comes to courage and a positive outlook on life, there wouldn’t be too many people who would beat Mildura’s Pat Larcombe. Her life has been one of hardship and pain, and a life-threatening disease could claim her at any time. But this happy-go-lucky mother of three is being helped in her recovery by an unlikely ally... race track legend Victor Bray, who told her...

Don’t ever give up the fight! WHEN Mildura mother of three Pat Larcombe was given just a few weeks to live, one of the first calls she made was to Aussie Doorslammers racing legend Victor Bray at his Queensland race car headquarters. Victor had promised to catch up with one of his biggest fans when he came to Mildura for a Sunset Strip drag meeting, and Pat was ringing to say she might not be able to keep the appointment. When she told him the reason, and what medical experts had said, Victor was firm; “Don’t worry what the doctor said girl... I’ll catch up with you in Mildura.” That was last August, and Pat says the support from Vic-

“Even though I have cancer, it’s only a word. You have to get on with life as best you can” – Pat Larcombe. tor, and the love and support from her hubby Ken and both their families, is what has helped keep her going. Pat knows she’s on borrowed time. She knows that the incurable non-Hodgkins Lymphoma disease that struck out of the blue 14 years ago might take her at any time, but this courageous 58-year-old isn’t going without a fight - especially with

people like Ken and Victor in her corner... and more drag meetings scheduled in the near future! Pat is a Robinvale girl, born and bred, leaving high school to work in the local supermarket, marrying a market gardener at the age of 19, and raising three kids. Pat and her husband eventually went their separate ways, but then, 14 years ago, she met Ken, and they’ve been inseparable ever since. She says that without the support from Ken, his children, her kids and their grandchildren, she might have given up long ago. “They make me remember why I want to live,” she said. • Continued Page 12

My mate Victor Victor Bray is a Queensland tomato grower. But he is best known as a champion drag racer in the Top Doorslammer class, racing a ‘57 Chevvy. His racing squad, Team Bray, sponsored by Castrol, has won six Australian championships. Victor’s son Ben also drives for the team, and is also an Australian champion in Doorslammer and Top Alcohol. Victor’s personal best time over the sprint distance is six seconds even, at a speed of 245.77mph (395.52kph).

• SUPPORT CREW; Pat has had strong support from family and friends in her battle to regain the best of health... especially from husband Ken and Doorslammers race car legend Victor Bray LEFT, and her three kids, who all decided to get ‘Mum’ tattoos after Pat got sick, ABOVE. That’s daughter Rosie, RIGHT, in Holden gear, with Pat.

Get qualified at SuniTAFE! Technology plays an increasingly important place in all our lives. Can you operate a personal computer, access and use the internet, capture a digital image? A qualification in Information Technology may give you the edge in the job market. SuniTAFE Skills Recognition Centre can assist you to convert your valuable work and life experiences into a formal nationally accredited qualification. Any combination of formal or informal training, education and work or life experience can be considered relevant to achieving recognition for certificate or diploma level qualifications, once competencies are assessed. The Skills Recognition Centre team are friendly and supportive. They can guide you through the application process, explain the “treasure hunt� of gathering evidence from your prior experience and organise assessment of your application.

Pat’s thoughts on what cancer can’t do...

Kayla and James were both prime candidates for skills recognition.

Cancer is so limited. It can’t cripple love, Nor shatter hope, It can’t corrode faith, It can’t destroy peace, and it can’t kill friendship, It can’t suppress memories, Nor silence courage, invade the soul, or steal eternal life. And above all, it cannot conquer the spirit.

Kayla left school and gained employment in the office at a local vineyard. She was seen as the computer wiz at her work place, but due to changes in the industry she found herself looking for a new job. Kayla felt her lack of qualifications would disadvantage her in the job market. She didn’t know that by providing evidence of her daily work routine, she would be able to convert those skills into a qualification. After approaching the Skills Recognition Centre, Kayla discovered that she would be able to compile a portfolio that showed she was already competent at using a computer operating system, operating computer packages, and using computer packages to design documents for her organisation. Kayla’s evidence was sufficient to gain her a Certificate II in Information Technology. Kayla was thrilled to add this qualification to her resume. James is employed in the retail industry. In his job role, James designed and maintained the website for his employer. He realised that this experience gave him great skills, so he pursued contacting the Skills Recognition Team to see if they could assist him with qualifications for his work. Whilst discussing the collection of evidence, James was pleasantly surprised to find that his voluntary work developing and maintaining the website for the local archery club could also count towards his qualification. James was granted all but 2 of the units for his Certificate IV in Information Technology websites. James followed on to complete these two units to achieve his qualification and has since embarked on further study. SuniTAFE Skills Recognition Centre team were able to assist Kayla and James with advice on how to prepare the necessary information for the application for skills recognition. To find out more, call Carmela our skills recognition expert on (03) 5022 3975.

• From Page 10 Especially Ken. She says she owes him big-time. When the life-threatening disease struck her down in 1997, putting her in hospital, Ken said he would marry her if she was able to leave the hospital. The pains in her chest went away when doctors removed an enlarged lymph node under her arm, and she was on the road to recovery - and the alter. Life still wasn’t easy, with frequent visits to Adelaide for chemotherapy treatment, but Pat and Ken still hooked up the van and spent five years on the road, seeing various parts of Australia in between hospital visits, some lasting up to three months.

They were in Perth six years ago when another medical problem presented itself... a tiny sore on one leg developed into a serious vascular disease, eating away at both legs and requiring major and painful surgery over an extended period. Pat was bed-ridden for seven months, and then restricted to a walking frame or wheelchair. It didn’t stop them going to as many V8 and drag race meetings as they could. Pat admits to making Victor Bray her hero 30 years ago, but never thought she would get the chance to meet him in person. That all changed last August during another course of chemo, when Pat developed a cough that ended with her being diagnosed with

� � � � � �� � � ��������������������

the swine flu, pneumonia - and a hole in the lung. She was in intensive care for three weeks, hovering near death. Her kids gave up their jobs and came home to be by her side after doctors said she had between two weeks and two months to live. She had written to Victor Bray some months earlier, asking about some merchandise, and saying how excited she was at his impending visit to Mildura. It was during her latest bout of sickness that she contacted him again, saying she might not be able to make the appointment, and thanking him for all the enjoyment he had given her over several decades, and was encouraged by his reply that

they would meet in Mildura as planned. Eight weeks passed, and Pat felt herself getting stronger. She told the kids to go home and get on with their lives, and she made plans to go to the next drag meeting, watch the Doorslammers, and meet Victor. “He was the ant’s pants,� Pat said this week. “He couldn’t have been nicer. He saw the condition of my legs, helped with my wheelchair, and got his staff to move everything around his mobile track-side marquee so I could be under cover in case it rained. And he kept coming back about every 15 minutes, just to make sure I was comfortable.�

Big occasion for Underbool FIRST came the publication, ‘A Vision Realised’ launched in 1988 to record the history of Underbool, Torrita, Linga and Boinka. Now the Underbool Centenary Book Committee is working on another one, this time to coincide with the 100th anniversary celebrations of Underbool itself. If the first book of 154 pages is any indication, copies of the revised edition will be snapped up as a keepsake, historical items of interest and keepsake by the hundreds of people expected to celebrate the grand occasion. Janet Lynch, Secretary of the Underbool Centenary Committee and co-author of the book, describes it as a historical reference about the people and families of the region, and a great way to preserve the history of Underbool and district. The 100th anniversary celebrations will be held over the weekend starting Friday, September 30, with the launch of the new publication, with activities the following day to include a re-enactment of the arrival of the early settlers, unveiling of a welcome wall, an animal nursery, live broadcast of the AFL Grand Final, a children’s choral group, entertainment

by local artists and the burying of a time capsule. The original book, dedicated to the Mallee pioneers, makes for interesting reading, dealing with the arrival of the first settlers and their struggles with the land, water, rail and roads, and farming problems. Loaded with good quality and historic photographs, Janet and fellow authors Margaret Willsmore and Christy Brown wrote and compiled

Once labelled as part of the Wimmera, the Underbool region was traversed by early explorers and run-seekers in the 1850’s.

Charity rumours; Tania hits back NOTHING will stop Tania Zaetta from trying to improve the lives of innocent children who continue to be affected by the ravages of war. The Merbein girl says so herself in a statement released this week through her solicitor and management company in the wake of controversy surrounding the Queensland-based Peace for the Children charity. Her statement, she says, is in reply to stories circulating in the print and online media implying that the charity has (a) been forcibly shut down by a government authority, and (b) That Tania has been charged in relation to fund-raising in without a licence, and that she faces fines of more than $6000. Solicitor Clinton Smith told the Mildura Weekly the clear implication through the media articles and stories was that there had been some impropriety on behalf of Peace for the Children directors, including Tania, with respect to the use of funds raised by the charity. Speaking on her behalf, Mr Smith says the statements, suggestions and implications were untrue. The Charity has not closed down, nor been fined. “In March, 2011, when the directors became aware that PFTC was not recorded in the Register of Charities in Queensland as had been directed and instructed by them, they Immediately and voluntarily suspended the

operations of Peace for the Children,” he said. “They commissioned an audit of the fund, and liaised and fully cooperated with officers of the Office of Fair Trading, producing to that office the accounts of the fund and the audit report. “The audit report verifies that the fund has been operated in a proper manner, and no charges have been

preferred against any directors or the charity.” In a statement released through Andrew Taylor Management, Tania said she was saddened and disappointed at the media releases concerning herself and the charity, saying her ongoing charitable work “comes from a place in her heart.” “As one of the directors of the charity, Tania, along with charity colleagues,

this footy season

has devoted an enormous amount of time in the last two years to help raise awareness of, and assist with fund raising for, child victims of war-torn countries,” the statement said. “Tania has not had any involvement in the charity’s day-to-day business and administration, with such matters being attended to by Grant Hilton and other business associates. “Tania’s duties as one of the directors has been primarily that of fund-raising, event organising and promotions, and working alongside other prominent members of the community who share the same passion and hopes for improving conditions of children living in areas of conflict. “Regardless of these allegations, Tania and the directors are dedicated to fundraising, and continuing their

efforts to assist and improve the lives of innocent children affected by war, and encouraging peace building in war-ravaged countries.” Tania said she wasn’t able to make more expansive comments at this point on the PFTC allegations due to the charity’s solicitor currently pursuing defamation with the relevant media legal departments on behalf of herself and the charity. But she did tell the Mildura Weekly yesterday that while the claims were disappointing, and which she felt had caused “irreparable damage to her name and credibility,” she was confident all would work out well, and she intended to keep “working with a smile,” doing the jobs she loves, and continuing her charity work. She said one example of how Peace for the Children helped the children

of the world was when she received a photograph from an Australian volunteer worker in East Timor, showing children playing basketball with a squashed ball..., LEFT, the charity organised a box of 50 basketballs and other sporting goods to be sent to Cassa Village, in Ainaro district. Tania also spoke of the many Tibetan children who had been orphaned or separated from their families during their escape from their homeland during periods of conflict. Tibetan children in exile in India last Christmas received presents of clothes, books and pens from Peace For The Children. “They’re very grateful for the opportunity to attend school, and now have much-needed materials to help fulfill their dreams of an education,” Tania said. She told the Mildura Weekly she wouldn’t be bullied or pressured into giving up something that is in her heart, and said that keeping up a busy schedule would help keep her mind off all the negatives of the recent publicity. That includes her pending return to the screen, appearing with Lara Bingle, Derryn Hinch and Russell Gilbert, in the Keep Australia Beautiful TV promotion ‘Litterers Anonymous,” which she said would make people laugh as it encouraged them to bin their rubbish.

Darling duo up the creek with a paddle! •  From Page 9

The coffee was no great loss, Travis revealed. It was “lousy anyway,” but he was going to miss those sandals! The pair took advantage of the new, higher level in the Culgoa to make a break for it downstream. But they were still concerned they may run out of water before they reached the Darling just above Bourke. The level in the Culgoa was dropping up to a metre a day, and it was going to be touch and go based on their daily progress experience. When they came to a “big intersection” in the river they knew they had reached the Culgoa’s confluence with the Barwon. Gone were the ever-present snags, and with it the canopy of trees they had been making their way under for much of the earlier part of their trip. “It really opened up there,” Travis said. The gums were huge, and more spaced out. “And the river was much wider.” There were no log jams to contend with, and the current had slowed too. Things became even more straightforward once they got onto the Darling. After the weeks of struggle in the smaller tributary rivers, dodging over-hanging branches, unloading the canoe to drag it over a snag before reloading it again and taking their chances in some of the swifter flowing channels that threatened to overturn them in an instant, the Darling, they said, was a doddle. “Time to think, to listen to some music, to talk and just day dream,” the pair said. A typical day for Dan and Travis begins about 7.30 or 8am when they roll out of their swags for breakfast. They like to be on the river and paddling by 9.30 or 10am, and knock off about 4.30 or 5pm. The river has a natural rhythm that has allowed them some “clarity” they say. When you’re out on the river and you don’t have the worries of everyday, it allows you to do some serious thinking, the pair says. They recommend it as a mindcleansing experience. Their provisions along the way have been a mixed bag, including some less than ideal freeze-dried

foods, but a special mention, they say must be made of Stockman’s Beef Jerky, a product of Dan’s hometown. It has been an invaluable ‘fuel source’ and something a little tastier than some of the bland other fare they have been forced to make do with. “In the early stages we had to carry two or three weeks worth of food. Now we are down in the more populated areas we expect our diet will change considerably,” they joked. Both Dan and Travis say there have been many highlights along the way, naming the abundant birdlife along river as an example, and describing it as extraordinary. “On one stretch we counted 11 different species in about 200 metres,” Travis said, “And a couple of long-necked turtles.”

They have also met some great people, they said, among them Bindara on the Darling Farm Stay’s Barb and Bill Arnold; Avoca Station’s Ian and Barbara Law; and Pooncarie Gallery and Café’s John and Pauline Kohe. “Everyone along the river has been extremely welcoming and generous,” the pair said. When they called into Bindara, they were able to trade – some handyman repairs for a cup of tea and some provisions. The pair said they have been the first visitors some people have had since the floodwaters cut them off from the outside world months ago. “We have made friends that we know are keepers,” the pair said.

After looking around Wentworth on Monday afternoon and Tuesday, Dan and Travis packed up their canoe and headed downstream once more Wednesday morning. They are planning to go all the way, at least as far as they can safely. If that means the Murray Mouth at Goolwa, so be it! They intend to finish their trip by mid-July. That way they will get a couple of weeks at home before they take up the tools once more to earn a living, and the money for their next adventure. That, Travis says, may well be a canoe trip down the Fitzroy River in the West Australian Kimberleys. It should be noted that so far the pair is not exactly sure how they are getting home, but they are sure “something will happen.” It is that kind of faith that the ‘universe will provide’ that underpins Dan and Travis’ lives, as well as this adventure. They have gone with their gut feeling all the way along, and their timing has been flawless. There was even a silver lining in the flood that washed away Travis’ sandals, they point out. “Without that water we would have not made it out of the Condamine.” Those with Facebook access can keep up with the boys and their odyssey by logging on and searching for ‘canoe down’. Yes, they have a laptop with them, and Dan is updating the page almost daily with photos and a blog. They keep the laptop charged using a special solar blanket. And for those living downstream of Wentworth, there is a rumour the pair love a party, so don’t be afraid to track them down and say hello.

When in Rome... When in Rome, do as the Romans do. It wasn’t written for Dan Suttle and Travis Ewan, but it sure could have been. They are open to new experiences of all kinds wherever they are, so when they hit Wentworth this week they were keen to try a little ‘sandhill surfing,” good timing once again considering tomorrow is international sandboarding day! A chat with Jade and Steve, at the Jade Temby Gallery and Cafe in Darling Street, soon saw the boys kitted out with a chunk of wax each and a board. The boards are not unlike snowboards, and are used in the same way except the snow gives way to the orange/red sand of the Perry Sandhills. The idea for hiring out the boards came when Jade was working with the local Landcare group. “It was really a ‘green’ initiative,” she says. “A replacement for the cardboard and old car bonnets that litter the sandhills and surrounds,” she said. Jade also has a couple of sand sleds, for those who like their action sitting down or kneeling. Both Dan and Travis, with past snowboarding experience, chose the boards. For more information on surfing the Perry Sandhills give Jade a call on 0437 060 637, or pop into the gallery/cafe. •  SAND SURFERS: It is not as easy as it looks! Dan takes a tumble, ABOVE LEFT, but the ‘Darling Duo’ soon got the hang of it, LEFT. They were all smiles TOP, when they picked up the boards from Jade Temby and Steve Worrell, but it took a while for those smiles to return once they got on the sand at the Perry Sandhills. But both Dan and Travis have snow boarding experience and that certainly helped.

Jim Bunney 1942 – 2011

His was an adventurous childhood, piloting big ships into harbour, and racing bikes in his spare time. Later he gained a reputation as a painter, family man, trotting trainer and driver, and lawn bowler. As mourners heard this week as they farewelled Gol Gol’s Jim Bunney...

Some people are taken too early! TO the many people who befriended Gol Gol’s Jim Bunney, he was known as a quiet and devoted family man, and a conscientious ‘jack-of-all-trades’ who loved playing bowls in his spare time. But there was much more to the man than met the eye, as evidenced by the glowing tributes at Monday’s funeral service for the popular painter, who passed away last Tuesday after falling seriously ill just a few months ago, and just a few weeks after his 69th birthday. Around 350 family and friends who gathered at Gol Gol Lawn Cemetery for the Sunraysia Funerals graveside service were given a great insight into Jim’s working and sporting life, not to mention a love of music, with his farewell including Elvis Presley’s Amazing Grace, Mark Vincent’s You Raise Me Up, and the Neil Diamond hit Cracklin’ Rosie. And it wouldn’t have been complete without hearing a tape of Jim driving home another of his trots winners to the line. Here was an Adelaide-born bloke who developed drive and initiative early in life, riding his bike all over town to sell newspapers, and who left school at 14 to work on a pilot boat in Outer Harbour, helping guide the huge cargo and migrant ships into the busy port. His bicycle days selling newspapers stood him in good stead growing up, when he competed at the Adelaide velodrome and also in many road races. Mourners were told that in one race, riders ahead of Jim veered suddenly to avoid pot-holes and gravel... but not Jim... he took advantage of their ‘detour’, ploughed straight through and won the race!

And that was how he was described in a four-part eulogy... never one to skirt around the edges, but someone who met life’s challenged head-on. When the family moved to Gol Gol in 1957, Jim worked on his Dad’s fruit block for a Pound a week, but also worked part-time as a projection assistant at the 16th Street drive-in. He also found time to fit in some dancing lessons, and it was here that he met the viva-

cious young Joan Fleming. They started dating, married in 1964, settling in Gol Gol and raising daughters Jan and Tracey, and recently celebrating their 46th wedding anniversary. Jim started work in the painting trade with George Gibson, before going into business for himself, gaining a high reputation for reliability and workmanship over the next 40 years. During this time he also devel-

oped a love of horses, and drove trotters at many meetings at Mildura and surrounding areas, as well as metropolitan areas. Later on he took up training, and had a big influence in Jan and Tracey with their gymkhana success when growing up. Mildura Harness Racing Club’s Barry Bottams said in his eulogy that back in the 60’s, the Bunneys were a force to be reckoned with in trotting, with Jim in particular driv• QUIET ACHIEVER; Jim Bunney brings Glamour Chief back to scale after a heat win in the Mildura Pacing Cup.

ing plenty of winners in Mildura and Melbourne. He was on Glamour Chief when it won a heat of the Mildura Pacing Cup... the horse later went on to run in the InterDominion. Barry described Jim as one of the region’s top drivers, a quiet achiever who never sought the spotlight, but who often didn’t get the credit he deserved for his success. After 13 years in Wood Street, Gol Gol, Jim and Joan bought a fruit block on the river on the outskirts of town, and life got busier, although Jim was able to balance his painting business, block work, gymkhana duties, recreational pursuits on the river, and later on, lawn bowls. It was while working the fruit block that Jim thought he had come across the ‘gun’ picker of all time... a young backpacker who was always early for work, never called in sick, was prepared to work long hours, and was a conscientious and enthusiastic picker who never seemed to want to leave the block and go back to the hostel. As Jim later found out, the reason for all this dedication was his daughter Tracey... she had met her future husband Jan-Paul. Mourners also heard the story of Jim’s speedboat ‘Impatient,’ which family and friends said was aptly named... when Jim was teaching anyone skiing, it was a case of ‘three strikes and you’re out,’... and it was someone else’s turn to try to get up on skis. • Continued Page 21

The priest and the prostitute Mildura Weekly - 20/05/11

DENIS Ryan, in a prologue to the book by himself and Ruth, describes in clear detail his first encounter with the paedophile priest, Father John Day. He remembers back to November of 1956, as a young constable patrolling the then seedy streets of St Kilda with two fellow officers in the ‘divvie’ van. It was about one o’clock in the morning when they spotted a large showy American sedan travelling slowly and too close to the gutter in Wellington Steet. They ordered it to pull over. When Denis approached the vehicle, he noticed that the driver was a well-known prostitute called Hazel. The fact that she was driving such a large car “rang alarm bells.” Her friend Dot was a passenger. Also in the vehicle, sprawled across both women in the front seat, was a very drunk male. His pants and underpants were down around his ankles. Questioned, Hazel told Denis the man was a priest from Apollo Bay, and a regular customer, so much so that he let them drive his car on his visits. When the policemen dragged the man into a sitting position, they noticed he was wearing a priest’s collar. He was incapable of talking, let alone driving, so one of the policemen drove the man’s car back to the police station. On the way they

carted him out to the cars, bundled him into the American vehicle and drove off into the night.” That incident had always rankled and disturbed Denis,

managed to get his name; Father John Day, the parish priest at Apollo Bay. One of Denis’ superiors, a practicing Catholic, gave Day a stern talking to, before ringing priests at a nearby presbytery to collect him. Denis said he was interested to see the reaction of the priests at the sight of

Day in his drunken, slovenly state. “They seemed rather nonplussed and non-committal, as though it hadn’t been the first time they’d seen him like this and also, as though they were embarrassed to be associated with him,” he said. “They thanked us, picked Day up, one under each arm,

especially when his superiors strongly advised that they should forget about it, not wanting to bring the church into disrepute. But as Denis says, little did he know the effect it was going to have on his life. He tells a hair-raising tale of another encounter with Day, soon after his posting to a

ish priest – Denis recognised him immediately as Father John Day, but didn’t let on... until he broached the subject with Barritt in the car on the way back to the police station. Barritt became visibly annoyed, and told Denis he didn’t know what he was talking about. Denis was surprised

when Day summoned him to the Presbytery for a talk the next day, telling him Barritt had told him what he said, denied it, and telling Denis he was “grossly wrong,” that he had never been to Apollo Bay, claiming it must have been another priest with the same name. Denis said he called Day a liar, and walked out. When Ryan returned to the police station, Barritt, who had obviously been on the phone to Day, ripped into him, taking Day’s side in what they said was a case of mistaken identity. But Denis had his facts right...Day was indeed the priest from Apollo Bay. He called Barritt a liar as well. It wasn’t a good start to his police career at Mildura. Later in the manuscript, Denis tells the story about a Catholic communion gathering in Melbourne, which Jim Barritt and his brothers attended. Barritt’s brothers, including the respected Dennis ‘Dinny’ Barritt (later a Magistrate who made world news headlines when he allowed TV cameras into the courtroom at the Azaria Chamberlain inquest) obviously didn’t get on with their brother. In fact, Denis remembers ‘Dinny,’ after learning of his Mildura posting, warning him to be wary of Jim, who he described as “difficult, and unusual.” As Denis later found out, it was the understatement of the year.

Health report in on our youth By BEN PISCIONERI A NEW report on the health and safety of young people in Victoria has resulted in a mixed report card for Sunraysia. The report, Adolescent Community Profiles, was released by Victorian Minister for Higher Education and Skills Peter Hall this week, providing a snapshot of Local Government areas across the state. It is based on data collected between 2008 and 2010, revealing more than 12 percent of Sunraysia’s estimated 60,000-strong population are adolescents (people aged 10 17), but it’s a decreasing number. The report predicts a drop of more than 15 percent in Sunraysia during the next 20 years. Mental health appeared to be among several problem areas among Sunraysia’s youth according to the report, fairing worst than most of the state. It found half of adolescents in the Loddon Mallee, which takes in more than just Mildura, reported being recently bullied, compared to 44.6 percent Victoria-wide. Meanwhile, Sunraysia’s rate of psychiatric hospitalisation and hospitalisation for intentional self-harm was higher than the state average. Sixteen percent of adoles-

cents in the Loddon Mallee region reported “very high levels of psychological distress”, compared to 13 percent statewide. In terms of health and wellbeing there were both positives and negatives. The report found Sunraysia’s youth appear to be healthier eaters than the average Victorian adolescent. More than 21 percent of Sunraysia adolescents ate the minimum serves of fruit and vegetables, compared to 19 percent statewide.

Higher proportion A higher proportion of Sunraysia youth also participated in the minimum recommended level of exercise compared to the rest of the state. Teenage pregnancies meanwhile were far more prevalent according to the report. In 2008, the rate of babies born to teenage women aged 15 to 19 in Mildura was 27 per 1000. This is more than double the rest of the state. A possible contributing factor to this figure is that the average age of adolescents’ first sexual experience is 15-yearsold, according to the report. Another concerning trend was the number of young people in Mildura in need of child protection. The report

found the rate of child protection substantiations in Mildura was more than double the state average. Mallee Family Care executive director Vernon Knight said the report mirrored many of the factors highlighted in previous studies, including the most recent by Professor Tony Vinson - Social Indicators. He said it also highlighted the importance of early intervention, which is one of the focusses of the Unlocking Sunraysia’s Potential initiative, launched recently to tackle disadvantage and education in local youth. “One of the things that was obvious in the Unlocking Sunraysia’s Potential report was the need to engage with these kids and make sure we get them onto the right path early,” Mr Knight said. He said the high rate of hospital admissions related to psychiatric conditions could be a reflection of the need for more mental health services in Sunrayia. “One of the things that was revealed at Council level, and that Council did some work on some time ago was that incidents of hospital admissions related to psychiatric illness were in part a product of a lack of facilities in Mildura,” Mr Knight said.

• Mallee Family Care executive director Vernon Knight. “In other words we didn’t have the community-based care that was needed and I guess when that’s in short supply the hospital becomes the destination of last resort.”

Valuable resource Mr Knight said the report would be yet another valuable resource highlighting the need for action to break what has become a cycle of vulnerability and disadvantage in many Sunraysia families. “Clearly in this report we continue to have high rates of abuse and neglect and it’s not simply, as government has been known to do, simply throwing more child protection resources at the problem,” he said. “We have to address health and education and all those factors known to make children vulnerable to begin with.”

A good time to visit the library IF you have ever wondered just how handy a library can be when searching for that elusive scrap of informtaion, next week will be a prime time to find out. Next week is Library and Information Week, and to mark the occasion Wentworth Shire Council’s libraries at Wentworth, Dareton, and Buronga, will host a raft of workshops and activities aimed at increasing community knowledge about the breadth of library services and how to find information. Starting on Monday, all branches, all week, will be teaching people “how to find stuff” on the Online Public Access Catalog or OPAC, and the library databases including World Book Online. Then, on Wednesday, all branches will host the National Simultaneous Storytime initiative, with children’s book ‘Feathers for Phoebe’ by Rod Clement. Phoebe is small, grey, and ordinary – very ordinary. “I want to get noticed!” she declares. Zelda is glamorous, talented and famous and she runs the most popular beauty salon in the forest. And she’s only too happy to help Phoebe become the bird

she’s always wanted to be. First a little feather headdress, then wing extensions – until Phoebe is transformed into a Diva. She looks gorgeous – but when she tries to take off, surprises are in store for them both! On Thursday, the focus will shift to the Wentworth branch and the Wentworth Historical Society will host its workshop ‘How to be prepared for a disaster ‘ and the importance of ‘saving old stuff.’ Bookings are esential. Later that day, the Library Walking Group will mark its fourth birthday with a walk around town looking at ‘old stuff’ to be followed by dinner. At all branches next Friday the focus will once again be fidning information, this tiome on the geneaological website Ancestry.com. Bookings are essential for the workshops from 10.30 am til noon at Wentworth; 2pm to 3pm at Dareton; and 3.30pm to 4.30pm at Buronga. For more information, or to make a booking for any of the activities, contact Wentworth Shire Library on 5027 5060.

Greg Champion at Cardross, Nangiloc MR Coodabeen Champions himself, Greg ‘Champs’ Champion, will be in Sunraysia later this month. More specifically he will be in Cardross and then Nangiloc, bringing his own brand of uplifting humour and song to communities that could use a little light reflief. Champion, an avid Australian rules football fan, who since the 1980s has penned many tunes about the Australian game, will make his first appearance on Tuesday, May 31, in the historic Cardross Hall. The following night, Wednesday, May 1, he will do his oneman show in the Nangiloc Hall, starting at 7pm, with proceeds to go to the Nangiloc Kindergarten. Tickets for both shows are a modest $5. For the Cardross show they are available from the Cardross Store, Mildura Visitor Information Centre and Mildura Arts Centre, and also at the Nangiloc store for the following night...they are also available at the door. Greg Champion grew up in Hectorville, which is a small but significant part of the City of Campbelltown, a suburb of the South Australian capital, Adelaide. ‘Champs’ has written hundreds of songs (many serious, many humorous) and is a multi-award winning country/ folk singer who, after being discovered in the Catacombs – a legendary Adelaide folk club of the 1970s. Organisers of the Cardross and Nangiloc nights have urged residents of Mildura and surrounding areas to support the fund-raisers.

Busy artists will warm to their task WITH winter looming, and a cold snap upon us, The Art Vault has switched on the heating, but it will only be a top-up for that generated by the latest crop of busy visiting artists. The Vault is about to welcome back some firm favourites including Peter Lancaster, Roberto Marquez, Deborah Klein and Brenda Runnegar. Meanwhile, the Vault is presently home to firsttime visiting printmakers Tony Ameneiro and Heather Burness. Tony Ameneiro has already embarked on a onemonth residency, and has used his time to not only explore the local region but to also continue developing new works that began in his studio at home in Mittagong, and have taken on a new flavour here. Tony has had an extensive career as an artist/ printmaker and more often than not a conservator of artworks also. While exploring the town, Tony has developed a body of work focusing on some of our local icons and he will collaborate with our visiting Peter Lancaster who will be busy putting the final touches on some litho plates that Tony began during at the start of his residency. Tony exhibited a beautiful body of work from his Gymea lily head collection and has had such a successful stay he has booked in a return visit in September 2012.

Heather Burness CAnBeRRA-based Heather Burness has also spent some time at The Art Vault recently, developing her next series of prints. Heather develops etching plates by submerging her steel in various soils

Council commits welcome funds to region’s events MilDurA rural City Council has reaffirmed its commitment to helping community groups and not-for-profit organisations present sustainable festivals and events by committing $275,000 through its annual Events and Festivals Grants Scheme. Council approved 34 individual grants at its April ordinary Council meeting. Six grants will receive funding over a three year period, while 28 others are one year-based. Councillor Fiona HiltonWood, PiCTurED, said community, national and international level events helped promote our region’s diversity and culture and brought economic, environmental and social benefits to the area. “Council is committed to supporting these events so that the community can continue to enjoy the benefits they bring,” Cr Hilton-Wood said. Among grant recipients was the Mildura Show Society which received $17,000 to help put on one of the region’s most iconic events. Show Society secretary, Jo Clutterbuck, said having the event recognised by the Events and Festival Grant funding was an enor-

mous boost to the Society. “The Show is a platform for the community to come together to celebrate all the wonderful aspects of our region and for sporting and community groups to raise vital funds and the funding from the grant will allow for the new initiatives implemented at last years event to be expanded further benefitting the community as a whole,” she said. “The continued support of Mildura rural City Council and the community in general is pivotal to the continued success of the event and is appreciated immensely.” Sunraysia Willowfest president, Anthony Telfer, said the

Global Water Australian Willowfest Cricket Carnival would continue to prosper with the support of a three year grant valued at $15,000 each year. “The Willowfest Carnival is now in its 34th year and this injection of funds for the next three years will enable the committee to develop strategies that will ensure its future,” he said. “We now have a solid platform on which to build strong partnerships with Council and sponsors alike. We are over the moon with the decision by Council to show confidence in our ability to con-

legend Wayne Gardner described his good friend as “the ultimate quiet achiever.” He listed Jim’s great achievements on the bowls greens, despite taking up the game only five years ago, and said he was always the first one to put up his hand when there was a job

to be done, and that included terms as junior and senior vicepresident. The club was pleased to utilise his talents, not only as a bowler and painter of note, but also cooking the barbecue and selling raffle tickets on social occasions... often the first one

there, and the last one to leave after cleaning up. Never one to push himself on others, Jim was hesitant to join in a “boy’s fishing weekend” to Pollards camp near Fort Courage, telling Wayne he didn’t think he would fit in because he was a non-drinker. “I told him it wasn’t all about drinking, and to put his name down,” Wayne said. “Jim had a ball, learning Texas Hold ‘Em Poker, peeling the veggies, fishing and helping out. He said later it was one of the best weekends he had ever had, and told other club members later to make sure they put their names down for the next one.” Wayne said Jim would be sorely missed by all his friends at Mildura Bowls Club.

Illustrator here to share her insights AWARD-winning children’s book illustrator Anne Spudvilas will be in Mildura next week to share her experiences in researching and illustrating The Peasant Prince, the picture book version of international bestseller Mao’s Last Dancer by Li Cunxin.

Copies of the book, The Peasant Prince will be available to purchase and for signing after Anne’s presentation. Earlier this year Anne visited primary schools throughout our region, when she held drawing workshops for students in Ouyen, Werrimull, Red Cliffs and Mildura.

•  From Page 17 Jim was described as someone who influenced his family in many areas... with the exception of football, with his grandsons opting to follow the Bombers instead of his beloved Carlton. A highlight was a trip to the 1987 Grand Final at the MCG, where he saw his hero, David Rhys-Jones, receive the Norm Smith medal as the best afield.

Cr Hilton-Wood said demand for the Events and Festivals Grants Scheme continued to grow with applications for funding very competitive this year. “it’s imperative that events making applications for grant funding understand how important it is to clearly address the criteria for assessment as part of the application as well as consider factors such as the sustainability of their event,” she said New initiatives Event Grant funding can be applied for throughout the year as long as the event meets the criteria for assessment.

Elegance of a Bygone Era From the moment you enter the ornate double doors you are transformed to a bygone era. Featuring enormous formal lounge to front, accommodation is currently 4 bedrooms, however the largest would have been a formal dining room many years ago. The kitchen and meals area is very functional with near new electric oven. There are two family bathrooms complete with toilet and shower, plus north facing sunroom. The elevated ceilings and original fixtures and fittings will impress the discerning purchaser. Outdoors is a established corner block (with 3 road frontage) plus 4 vehicle carport leading to a 24 x 18 brick storage shed, with twin auto doors. It should also be noted the property would also make an ideal professional suite (STCA). Very realistic vendor, inspection highly recommended.

IT was the Western Division wedding of 2010 when Hollie Griffiths, from Baymore Station, married Jack Palmer, from Overnewton Station, via Darnick late last year. Hollie is the daughter of Garry and Ros Griffiths, and Jack the son of Phillip and Trish Palmer. The venue for the nuptials was ‘Rocky Point’ at Buronga – the home of close family friends – while the reception was held at Wooden Eye Estate. The celebrant was Lynette Dixon, and the bride was attended by Fiona Garlic, Hollie’s older sister Casey Clothier, and her younger sibling Brittany. Fiona and Hollie met as boarders at Ballarat Grammar. Standing by the groom were best man Zack Harris, close friend Sam Fitzgerald, and Tom Palmer, the groom’s brother. The bridal gown featured a chiffon Empire-line, woven with ruching on the chest and an asymmetrical layered skirt from Cinderella’s Bridal Shop. The bridesmaids wore Dupioni silk in mocha with a frill on the front, and also a low-cut frill at the rear. Nean’s Florist supplied the flowers, and the cake was made by Hollie’s sister-in-law, Terri Griffiths. It was a three-tier mud cake featuring hand-formed gumnut babies. The newlyweds honeymooned for two and a half weeks in South Africa, taking a traditional safari, visiting spectacular Victoria Falls and enjoying a Zambezi River cruise. The couple has made their home on Palapah Station, west of Ivanhoe.

Transport and logistics focus for roadshow

IT’S hardly the ‘sexiest of subjects’ as its proponents acknowledge, but they contend that without a vibrant transport industry, Australia would be a very different place… and not in a positive way. “Picture your life without the basics of life such as water, food, shelter or fuel, just to name a few; or not being able to get to and from work via public transport,” Victorian Freight and Logistics Council (VFLC) CEO Rose Elphick, says. “All of these ‘necessities of life’ rely on an effective and efficient transport industry. “And underpinning the industry are the people who work in it.” It is an understanding, she claims, that is really important in regions such as the Sunraysia where so many local people are involved in export industries. And that is why, she says, Mildura will be the first stop for a Transport and Logistics Workforce Roadshow to be staged at the Alfred Deakin Centre between 9am and 2pm on Thursday, May 26. “A large number of local providers of transport and logistics services have already indicated that they are keen to attend, and contribute to a discussion about the future,” Ms Elphick said. “We want to spend time with businesses providing transport (bus lines, road transport, aviation and rail) and logistics (such as warehousing) discussing workforce needs.

“Because this sector is experiencing strong growth, and also an ageing workforce, there is an urgent need to train up local young people, and people underrepresented in our industry, to deliver the goods and transport services that people have come to rely on and expect to be available. “People also need to remember that transport is not just about moving freight or goods, it is also about moving people,” Ms Elphick added. “If your business relies on logistics – distribution, storage and transport – we would like to hear from you about your people needs. “Time will be dedicated to open discussions about issues including workforce recruitment and retention of staff, skills shortages and training, Occupational Health and Safety, and workplace regulation… those that are affecting businesses in the region.” Ms Elphick said the hoped-for outcome of the roadshow would be an improved understanding of the industry workforce supply and demand parameters specific to each area; a greater awareness of the available programs and support for businesses that are available; and the development of ideas that can be turned into strategies to improve the local transport and logistics workforce – both now and into the future. Interested companies or individuals can contact VFLC on 03 8688 1830 or register online at www.vflc.com.au.

Students encouraged to think before acting UNDERSTANDING that actions have consequences is a lesson we all have to learn at some point in our lives. It’s a message that Selena Nightingale, 32, RIGHT, was determined to spread to Irymple Secondary College students recently recounting the accident that left her paralysed from the chest down. “While my accident was just that – an accident, it’s important for students to know that their actions have consequences,” she said. “A lot of young people generally feel they are invincible, that accidents or bad things will never happen to them. “And while that is generally the case, accidents happen every day, and one day they may be the ones involved. “My main message to students is to think before they act, because accidents do happen, and the consequences of those actions could be severe.” Representing Independence Australia, Selena had the audience in a stunned silence throughout her entire presentation, with her story highlighting how life can change in an instant. A keen motorbike rider, Selena was involved in a serious accident four years ago, crashing head-on into an oncoming car while on a trip with her boyfriend and several friends. “It was the first day of a long weekend, and a trip I had been looking forward to,” she told the students. “I actually don’t have a good memory of the accident, what I can remember is seeing a car coming the other way, and then that’s it. “My next memory is waking up in the hospital a week later, and being surrounded by a number of people.” Selena was soon informed that the accident had damaged her spine beyond repair. “It was a surreal moment,” she said. “I’ve always been a positive person, so I was determined to not let it bring me down. “When you receive news like that you have two options, either get depressed, or try to be positive and move on with your life.”

After slowly coming to terms with the accident, Selena soon began seeking information from friends and her boyfriend – all of whom had escaped injury and witnessed the crash – to help form a better picture of what had happened. “Basically I lost control of the bike at the wrong time, and crashed into the front on a Subaru that was coming the opposite way,” she said. “We were both doing around 80 kilometres an hour, with the estimated force of impact around 160 kilometres an hour.” The force was enough to reduce Selena’s motorbike to a crumpled mess. Selena told the students she then spent several months in rehabilitation, before almost immediately being offered a role with Independence Australia. “While in rehabilitation I made a PowerPoint of photos from the crash which basically told my story, and posted it on my blog,” she said. “The response was unbelievable, and it wasn’t long before Independence Australia got in contact with me.” Selena said she would continue to tell her story to students, and continue spreading her message. “Hopefully it’s a story that will resonate with students, and get them thinking,” she said.

cause again early next month when the Inner Wheel Club of Irymple hosts its annual charity fund-raiser ‘High Tea on the Hill.’ Planned for Sunday, June 5 from 2pm at Merbein’s Hill Corner Gardens, the highlights of this year’s high tea will be the popular cake and tea cosy competitions, where the cakes are consumed as part of the afternoon tea, and the tea cosies are sold to raise more charity funds. A ticket to the afternoon’s activities costs $15, and the adult entry fee for a tea cosy competition entry is $2.

More anglers playing ‘tag’ with native fish MORE and more anglers are reporting catches of tagged fish to State authorities, allowing them to keep track of fish movements, and store valuable data on their growth, how they survive, and their natural habitat. Keen fishermen, especially those with a ‘catch and release’ philosophy, have been given a special pat on the back for helping track native species. Some feedback has shown astonishing results, such as fish that were able to swim at least 500 kilometres in just eight weeks, and others recorded as having travelled 1700 kilometres within two years of their tag and release. Releasing more details of the tag and release program this week, Narrandera-based Freshwater Fish Ecologist with the NSW Department of Primary Industries, Dr Lee Baumgartner, said the department was asking anglers in the lower Murray-Darling region to keep up the good work. “All the information received provides vital information that will help with the management of native fish,” he said. “Their reports also provide important biological information on introduced species, such as carp, which can be used to develop better methods for their control.” Dr Baumgartner said that since the department’s tagging of fish began in 2001, more than 20,000 fish have been tagged and released into the main channel of the Murray and Murrumbidgee Rivers, with other smaller releases in upstream catchment areas. He said some fish showed an amazing movement response to the recent floods, with thousands of fish recorded migrating upstream in response to the increasing flows. Fish were also moving between different river systems, venturing from the Murray River, up into the Darling and Murrumbidgee. Dr Baumgartner said his department’s aquatic ecosystems scientists, together with their counterparts from the Victorian Department of Sustainability and Environment and the South Australian Research and Development Institute, have tagged fish along

the Murray and Murrumbidgee Rivers with microchip tags similar to those used to tag pets. “Automatic tracking stations that record the movement of fish through fishways are being progressively installed at all weirs on the Murray River, and also at some sites within the Murrumbidgee and Shoalhaven Rivers,” he said. “Unlike previous tagging studies that relied on recapturing the fish, the tracking stations automatically record the location of the fish as they swim through the fishway. The fish also have external yellow tags that can be easily recognised by anglers. The contact details to report the recapture of tagged fish are printed on each tag. “During peak fishing periods, such as holidays and season

openings, scientists have been receiving more than 100 tag returns in a week,” he said. “Although receiving so many responses can slow down the processing of tag replies, anglers could rest assured that all reported captures will receive a response.” Dr Baumgartner said this large scale tagging of fish would be ongoing at numerous rivers within NSW for a number of years. Species to be tagged include native fish such as Murray cod, silver perch, golden perch, Australian bass, catfish, mullet and bony bream, and introduced fish such as carp, goldfish and redfin perch. He said anglers who kept and cleaned their catch might find a microchip in the shoulder or gut of these species. Each microchip contains a unique number, and fish can be identified if anglers are able to return the tag. Youngsters over a wide area are also playing their part in the fish business. Earlier this month, students from Wentworth Public School released 9000 southern

pygmy perch fingerlings and 750 Olive Perchlets into the Thegoa Lagoon at Wentworth, and Washpen Creek near Euston. The species has been in Thegoa since 1850. These releases are in addition to the 70,000 Murray Cod and 15,000 Murray Perch released at Wentworth on the Murray and Karoola Station on the Darling River in April. The LMD CMA has released more than 400,000 fingerlings into the Murray and Darling Rivers since 2005. NSW anglers who catch a tagged fish are asked to telephone (freecall) 1800 185 027 to report the date of the catch, tag number, place of catch, length and species of fish. Alternatively, anglers can report their catch online at http:// www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fisheries/ forms/fw-fish-tagging Anglers who report their catch will be posted the details of the original tagging location and rewarded with a fish lure. They will also be provided with the history of the tagged fish.

Jelly Baby fund-raiser for diabetes THE month of May is a special time for those suffering from Type 1 Diabetes, as communities across the country come together to raise funds for the disease. Known as ‘Jelly Baby’ month, Diabetes support groups across Australia – including here in Sunraysia – will be out in force over the coming weeks, selling Jelly Baby-themed merchandise to the masses. Affecting close to 140,000 children and adults in Australia – and close to 40 children in Sunraysia – organisers are hoping to raise close to $1million this year nation-wide, with all funds going toward finding a cure, and researching better ways to manage the disease. The Sunraysia Juvenile Diabetes Support Group will do their part this weekend, with a stall to be set-up tomorrow from 10am to 2pm as part of the City Heart Market. In previous years the group has raised up to $5000, with Sunraysia Juvenile Diabetes Support Group secretary, Jo Clutterbuck, saying the plan was to better that total in 2011. “Our tally last year came close to the $5500 mark, and we’re certainly looking to better that this year,” she said. “We’re encouraging all locals to come out and support the cause, and give to a very worthy cause.” For those unfamiliar with the disease, Diabetes is a autoimmune condition that destroys the body’s ability to prodce insulin – a hormone necessary to convert food into energy. The immune system mistakenly destroys insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, with the cause considered to be a combination of genetic and environmental influences. When the pancreas stops producing insulin, the body has no way of turning food into energy, causing those suffering from the disease to literally starve. Merchandise available for purchase will include pens, badges, lollies etc., and is also available from My Chemist stores and Woolworths. More information on the support group, or to purchase goods or donate as part of Jelly Baby month, is available by contacting Jo Clutterbuck on 0427 342 263, or Leonie Tisler on 0429 010 469. • LOLLIES FOR A CAUSE: Sunraysia-based Type 1 Diabetes sufferer Brittney Mafi-Reale, 11, BELOW, with some of the merchandise available during Jelly Baby month.

Garry Quinn

Garry’s auto ‘therapy���

Garry Quinn’s 1961 Holden EK Special started from very humble beginnings (see inset), to become one of the most sought after examples of its type in Australia. Its first appearance, at the FB/EK Nationals in 2009 garnered it a stack of awards including Best Real Street, Best Non-original Interior, Best Non-original Engine Bay, Best Modified EK, Best EK Overall and Grand Champion. A repeat appearance last year was similarly successful, including again taking out Best Modified EK, Best EK Overall and Grand Champion. It was also featured in Street Machine magazine in August 2009 and selected in the magazine’s top 16 cars of that year. It also won Best EK at the All Holden Day in Bendigo last year. Garry bought the EK in February 2008 and began to strip it down when work commitments all but put the project on hold. Nine months later, after a medical scare and doctor-enforced break from work, Garry found he had plenty of time on his hands and once again turned his attention to transforming the EK. “I started back on the EK, which I should have called ‘therapy’ in November 2008, only being able to do a couple of hours a day to start with and slowly build back up to full days by the end of the build,” he said. Garry completed the entire project himself, with very few components trusted to other hands. It’s powered by a heavily modified small block 383 Chev (built by Garry), while the interior boasts Holden VN SS leather bucket seats, VN SS seatbelts, VN SS steering column and customised gauge pod. While there are far too many features and modifications to fit in this column, it’s Garry’s stunning attention to detail, which is in evidence throughout the vehicle that makes this car a stand-out - that and the plethora of awards and accolades the car has received.

BMW confident about future By MARTON PETTENDY JUST four months into the year, BMW has laid out an audacious plan to sell “well over” 1.5 million vehicles and hire around 2000 extra staff in 2011, before it releases its all-electric i3 city-car in 2013. Buoyed by BMW’s best-ever fullyear and first-quarter financial results – and its second-best Q1 sales results – chairman Norbert Reithofer revealed the ambitious sales target with which BMW hopes to achieve its previously stated aim of setting a new earnings record in 2011. “We aim to deliver more vehicles than ever before – well over 1.5 million vehicles (in 2011),” said Mr Reithofer at BMW’s annual general meeting last Thursday in Munich. As well as reaffirming that BMW’s goals of achieving record earnings and sales figures remain intact, Mr Reithofer said BMW’s earnings before income tax (EBIT) margin target of more than eight per cent for the automotive segment also remains in place. And, fresh from announcing a $US4 billion investment in China, BMW said it will create about 2000 new jobs this year – more than half of them in Germany – in the lead-up to production of the i3 EV in 2013, followed by the company’s second

all-electric volume model, the i8 eco-coupe. “The company will be launching its

“This will be followed by the BMW i8, an extremely fuel-efficient sportscar. Both vehicles will have a passenger compartment made of carbon – a first for the automobile industry. “The BMW Group will also be making its future combustion engines even more economical.” Having just posted its most successful financial year in its history, BMW also used the AGM to announce a record share of profits for its workers. Combined with Christmas bonuses, BMW said most staff on collective pay-scale agreements will take home an extra €7490 ($A9992) for 2010. The addition of 2000 workers throughout the course of this year will return BMW’s total global workforce to above the 96,230 figure it stood at by the end of 2009, before falling 0.8 per cent last year to 95,453. Mr Reithofer said BMW would continue to focus exclusively on the premium vehicle segment in the future, as it offers expanded services for individual sustainable mobility. “We will expand our leading premium position in the automobile industry,” he said. “We have the right DNA and the right values to be successful in the

future. We have a clear route to sustainable mobility.” BMW said that “to ensure profitable growth in the future” it would expand its use of common chassis architectures and modules across a range of models, a process it said was vindicated by fresh German breakdown figures that showed the Mini, 1 Series and X3 were the most reliable in their segments, with the 5 Series ranked second. “We are developing fewer parts and components. Processes are becoming more stable and the error rate is falling,” said Mr Reithofer. The BMW Group’s record Q1 results included a 28.9 per cent increase in revenue to €16.0 million ($A21.3m) on the back of 382,758 Mini, BMW and Rolls-Royce vehicle sales – up 21.3 per cent on 2010 (325,614). The group’s success continued in April, when it sold 137,183 vehicles – up 17.9 per cent – to have sold almost 520,000 vehicles in the first four months (up 20.4 per cent). BMW’s global result is in contrast to its experience in Australia, where the Bavarian brand was beaten to the number one luxury car sales position by Mercedes-Benz for the first time in seven years and sales to April this year are down 5.4 per © GoAutoMedia 2011 cent.

HONDA’s top-spec Accord V6 Luxury is set to get front and rear styling tweaks and more interior features at no extra charge when the facelifted model arrives in June. Photos received from a GoAuto industry source reveal that the cosmetic changes will include subtle revisions to the front bumper and the grille, which will have two horizontal bars compared to the current model’s three, as well as chrome stripes running along the rear tail lights. The modifications to the grille and tail lights appear to be the same as those on the facelifted US version of the car, which appeared in American showrooms in August last year. The Thai-sourced large sedan also gets Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port with iPod integration, a new style jack-knife key and intelligent dual-zone climate control. Fuel consumption has also been marginally improved to 9.9l/100km (down from 10.0l/100km), while CO2 output will drop to 235g/km, down from 239g/km on the previous model. Pricing for the MY2011 Accord V6 Luxury will remain unchanged at $49,990. It is unclear at this stage if the same changes will appear on

the four-cylinder VTi Accord models, with details of the update to those models not

yet available. The Accord facelift can’t come soon enough for

beleaguered Honda. Sales on its large sedan have almost halved so far this year, with the company managing to shift just 733 units compared with 1370 sales at the same time last year. Meanwhile, the Accord Euro facelift, which debuted at the Geneva motor show in March, is set to arrive here in the second half of this year. Changes seen on the show model included the obligatory tweaks to the grille, lights and bumpers, as well as alterations to interior fabrics and trim and technological updates. The current model Accord Euro is now officially in run-out, according to the company’s public website. The Accord is the latest in

THE ongoing saga over the future of Saab Automobile took a new turn this week with the announcement by parent Spyker Cars that it had forged a €95 million-plus ($A127.2m) deal with the large Chinese retail group Pang Da Automobile Trade Co. Just four days after the previous rescue deal and proposed strategic partnership with China’s Hawtai Motor Group collapsed, the Dutch-based Spyker said it had signed a memorandum of

understanding with Pang Da that should secure its “medium-term” funding needs. Under the deal, Pang Da – which is described as China’s largest publicly listed automobile distributor with more than 1100 dealerships nationwide – will pay €65 million ($A87m) for a 24 per cent stake in Spyker Cars and make an additional €30 million ($A40.2m) payment to purchase Saab cars for sale in China. It also has the option to buy up to €15

million worth of more Saab cars within 30 days. If approved, the agreement will form the basis of a 50/50 joint venture between Spyker and Pang Da for the distribution of Saab-branded vehicles in China. The memorandum also includes a manufacturing joint venture for Saab vehicles as well as those to emerge under a new Chinese brand established between Saab Automobile, Pang Da and a still-to-be-selected manufacturing partner.

and more for Accord a string of mild changes across Honda’s range so far this year. In April, the company attained a fivestar ANCAP safety rating for its entire Jazz line-up after it fitted the base GLi model with side and curtain airbags. The Japanese manufacturer also tinkered with the Odyssey people-mover last month by including more standard equipment, changing the interior trim and adding a colour to the range. These changes were also accompanied by a $1500 price increase for the top-shelf Luxury variant. Honda slashed prices in March and added a new entry-level variant to its British-sourced Civic Si range, as well as giving the slow-selling hatchback a new grille design and equipping it with standard Bluetooth connectivity. Meanwhile, the company quietly released the all-new ninth-generation Civic at the New York motor show earlier in May. The next version of the company’s small-car staple is almost identical in appearance to the ‘concept’ model previewed earlier this year at January’s Detroit show. Honda Australia, which has confirmed its version of the redesigned sedan will again be sourced from Thailand but will wear the

The CR-Z hybrid coupe is also slated to go on-sale early next year, most likely around the same time as the redesigned Civic, after the March earthquake and tsunami in Japan caused Australian stocks to delayed by up to six months. Honda’s local arm continued its sales slide in April, with monthly sales down 20.2 per cent yearon-year, while annual sales have fallen by a significant 25.8 per cent as of April. © GoAutoMedia 2011

as Saab’s new saviour... Saab Automobile will be allowed up to a 50 per cent shareholding in the manufacturing JV, with Pang Da and the manufacturing partner to own the remaining shares. The short-lived deal with Hawtai was struck on May 3 in a bid to resume production at Saab’s Trollhattan plant and to develop a new vehicle platform that would underpin its crucial next-generation 9-3 and other future models. In return, the privately owned, Beijing-

based Hawtai was to take a 29.9 per cent stake in Spyker and secure the rights to produce and distribute Saab vehicles in China, as well as share technology. According to Spyker, the €30 million in cash from Pang Da should enable it to pay the debts owing to suppliers and restart production in Sweden “as soon as possible”. As was the case with Hawtai, the Pang Da deal is subject to “definitive transaction documentation and certain

conditions”, which include approval from Chinese government agencies, the European Investment Bank, General Motors (which sold Saab to Spyker last year, but still has ties to the company) and the Swedish National Debt Office. Spyker Cars and Saab Automobile CEO Victor Muller said in a statement that the partnership would allow both Saab and Pang Da “to create a strong business, initially in the distribution and subsequently in the manufacturing of Saab vehicles in China”. © GoAutoMedia 2011

IN fishing terms. Autumn is considered not only a good time to start lure fishing for Murray Cod, but a window into what is considered the best cod fishing period. However, most anglers will have their own ideas when it comes to interpreting this change of seasons. For many of the diehard fishos out there, it is not until the mid-month point, just gone, that heralds the start of the unofficial cod opening. During Autumn, Murray Cod begin a maternal journey and act on their natural instincts to breed and protect their ‘nest.’ During this transformation, Murray Cod become incredibly territorial and aggressive as they stock up on whatever food is available to make it through the harshest elements of winter. Murray Cod, particularly the larger males, become almost dormant in the cooler months, confining themselves to nesting duties. Without the abundant food that is available during summer, meals are not easy to find. Cod cannot resist the urge to scoff anything of size that swims past their nose. In this case ‘the bigger the better’ lure rule applies when casting or trolling. It is a good idea to ‘match-thehatch’ and select lures which will mimic bait fish and other prey.

With the recent floods, a plethora of food was naturally flushed through the system, providing plenty of food. Murray Cod fill their stomachs senselessly, based solely on not knowing where their next meal is coming from. When the stomach is full, chances are that most casts with larger lures beside their lair would go unnoticed. In this case, downsize your lures and use smaller models on the cast. Recent flooding activity has brought the river alive below Mildura. This activity has renewed optimism amongst anglers of fishing returning to its best. It is great to see such positive outcomes after a gloomy few months. With the aid of hindsight, I now firmly believe that most of the recent ‘cod kill’ and floating fish seen in the Murray River around Mildura came from areas further upstream. Sure, the water was clearly affected around Mildura at the time, but it is becoming more evident that on a devastation-scale from one to 10, the effects here were at the lower end of the scale. On a recent yabbying trip below Wentworth, not long after the blackwater event had passed though and water levels started to naturally recede into their own banks, we were surprised to see so many young fish, shrimps, frogs and yabbies caught on bait and sometimes lures. This was in stark contrast to the week before, when fishing above Robinvale where the river was virtually ‘empty.’ Shrimp and yabby nets placed in the areas hardest hit by the blackwater had yielded no results for days, even though the nets were kept freshly baited. Very positive that a few days would bring signs of life, the lack of movement

• EARLY SUCCESS: Mildura’s Brett Evans with a fat ‘change of season’ Murray Cod. brought some bleak news. Stories like these are now becoming common-place, and are a cold reminder of the untold damage the blackwater has done in areas upstream of Mildura. The good news is that Mildura not only dodged an environmental bullet, but is once again a thriving fishery for the future. Mildura pool water is looking the goods at the moment, almost resembling the vast and successful arena where many good Murray Cod have been caught and successfully released over the years. Trolling and casting are the best methods for luring up a nice Autumn Murray Cod. With flows still fast, it would be recommend-

ed to troll and cast bigger lures against the currents. Try to get as close to the banks as possible to target fish holding out of the main flow. Casting around snags, now that most are visible again, is a great way to entice up a big green fish. Try casting larger lures like the Koolabung hard-body or Bassman Spinnerbaits range. Flicking these lures around backwaters holding snag piles just out of the main flow should land you a nice Murray Cod. Personally, I prefer darker colours and over-sized gold Colorado blades when using hard-bodies and spinnerbaits in dirtier water. The exception to

RSA and food handling course MALLEE Sports Assembly, in conjunction with the Good Sports Program, will hold two courses in the coming weeks, with the first a Responsible Serving of Alcohol (RSA) course on Monday, May 23, and the second a food handling course on Monday, May 30. Both courses will be offered at limited cost, with the aim of the RSA session to provide assistance, advice and information to local sporting clubs responsible for serving liquor at licensed club premises. Participants that complete the workshop will receive an of-

ficial certification from Liquor Licensing Victoria. The Food Handling Course will provide similar assistance, advice and information to sporting clubs who are responsible for the correct preparation and delivery of food. Participants who successfully complete the course will also receive official certification. Numbers are limited for both courses, with reservations to be taken on a ‘first-in-first-served’ basis. More information is available by contacting Jeanette Worthington on 5021 3464.

the gold blade ‘rule’ is the use of Bassman Mumblers in darker colours. These have been the lure of choice on a shallow troll or deeper cast on a number of recent fishing trips. With bigger fish looming, a 2-6kg graphite baitcast rod and reel spooled with 50lb braid and a 60lb mono leader setup will see your most vivid cod dreams come to reality. Some people prefer to use lighter line weights and rods when targeting cod, but needless to say, you run the chances of being seriously busted off, and let’s face it, no one likes to lose gear, not to mention that trophy-sized Murray Cod. The other thing about using light fishing gear to land big Murray Cod, in my opinion, is the amount of stress placed up on the fish due to longer fight-times. These long battles into the boat wear them out and can be detrimental to their survival. The aim of the sport of fishing may be to try to catch the biggest fish on the lightest line possible, but in some cases common sense should prevail. While, in scientific terms, the cooler change in weather is due to a change in thermal latency from the ground and sea, it signifies something much simpler to cod anglers. It sounds an internal alarm, alerting anglers to the prospects of a promising few months of cod fishing around Mildura. Good fishing - John M

BMX siblings do Sunraysia proud

SUNRAYSIA can now lay claim to two of the quickest junior BMX racers in Australia. Ethan and Tori Zrna have returned from the Australian BMX titles in Cairns with second and seventh placings respectively against the very best junior riders in the nation. Their campaign started early in the week-long event, competing in a series of pre-title motos several days before the national title races, allowing them to learn the track and gauge their competition. It was immediately evident the Zrna siblings would be competitive, despite racing on a track new to them against a plethora of hometrack specialists. In the three pre-title races Ethan took a second, fourth and first while Tori managed a fourth, third and a second. After a day’s rest it was then down to the business end of the week, where riders fought through a series of motos and finals to gain one of just eight places in their respective championship finals. Both riders had to contest three motos. Ethan then had to fight through quarter finals and a semi final, while Tori had to battle through a semi final to book a berth in the all-important final. Ethan, competing in the 8-yearold Boys class, won his three motos and came second in his quarter final. It was then that the realisation dawned on the Sunraysia youngster that he needed to finish fourth or better in his semi final to make the main, and nerves set in. He got off to a bad start in the semi final, but managed to fight his way to fourth, crossing the line two bike lengths ahead of fifth, just scraping into the final. With a place in the final assured, nerves disappeared and Ethan concentrated on the job at hand, clinch-

Tori was similarly successful in the ultra-competitive 10-year-old Girls class, taking two seconds and a win in her three motos against Australia’s best junior riders. A solid third place in the semi final guaranteed her a berth in the main and all was looking good for

a podium position based on her form earlier in the day, until disaster struck. Tori was in a competitive position in her final when two riders crashed immediately in front of her, leaving her no time and nowhere to go to avoid the collision. She hit the two riders at full

speed, sending her over the handlebars and leaving her winded. Despite the heavy fall, the gritty Sunraysia rider remounted and managed the finish the race, taking seventh and a coveted Australia ranking. Both riders say exposure the best riders in Australia has certainly

improved their riding and are now looking ahead to their next major challenge, the Victorian BMX titles in November. For Tori, who is currently Victorian number five, she aims to improve her ranking, while Ethan is aiming to make the final and see where he goes from there.

Bowls champ remembered LONG-TIME Sunraysia lawn bowlers will be pleased at the news that the late bowls champion Les Casey has been recognised by his original home club of Hopetoun, which has named the new synthetic green in his honour. Les’ wife Win (pictured LEFT) was invited to Hopetoun for the unveiling of the plaque, and described it as “a very special occasion.” Les was very much a Hopetoun identity, born and raised in the area, but when he and Win moved to Mildura in 2000, Les joined the Working Man’s Bowls Club, where he continued his singles and pennant bowls success, becoming a highly respected clubman and competitor. Les wasn’t just known for his sporting prowess in his home town. After some years working on the family farm, and other properties in the Hopetoun area, Les bought an old Austin truck and did local carting of grains at harvest time. He also worked for the Lands Department, Country Roads Board and Rocklands Reservoir. Les and Win married in 1951, raising two children, Debra and Maurice. In 1957 Les was granted an

Education Department contract to do the school bus run from Gama to Hopetoun. His first bus was a 1947 31-seater Chevrolet, which lasted him until 1961, when it was replaced with a Bedford, and later still, in 1983, a Hino. He retired in 1992 after 35 years of flawless driving over more than half a million kilometres in his job, and probably the same distance to and from work. Win said Les had always loved his sport, playing football for Hopetoun, where he won a best and fairest award. He also enjoyed his golf, and was a long-time member of the local rifle club, as well as being a member of Lions and the Masonic Lodge. In 1970, Les took up bowls and became a voluntary greens-keeper and club director, a position he held for the nest 23 years. Friends and fellow players say he was committed to excellence in all aspects of lawn bowls, and represented Hopetoun in the Wimmera Bowls Association and Northern Wimmera at Group and Provincial levels for two decades. He was also a Level One bowls coach, and was awarded life membership of Hopetoun

Bowls Club in 1984. Win remembers those bowls days well. She said Les spent a lot of time at the club, playing and doing work on the greens, well supported by close mates Tom Gale and Claude Perry. The three would meet at the club each morning, and work out a program of work, before settling down for their tradition challenge game of three-way ‘seven-up’. It was good practice for all of them, especially Les, being a recognised champion draw bowler, who went on to win four club singles titles, the 100-up title eight times, and 21-up singles four times. He played against many highlyaccredited bowlers, including the Australian champion and Commonwealth gold medallist Rob Parella in the Victorian Country Master’s Singles. Les, who finished third in the event, received some high praise from the Australian champion. Win said Les loved his time at Mildura, especially mixing with lots of new friends at the Workers, and played pennant and vet’s pennant with continuing success up to 2006. He passed away last August, aged 84.

It was the lawn bowls clash of the year...Round Two of the ‘grudge match’ between the Tri-State Barbarians and the Thirsty Bulls. Up at Euston they’re all still talking about it as...

67

Last Barbarian bowl stops Bulls charge! THE Tri-State Barbarians took on and beat the South Australian Thirsty Bulls bowls team by one shot in the weekend’s five-match Test series sponsored at Euston. The Thirsty Bulls is an invitation side made up of players from SA metropolitan and country clubs, and the TriState Barbarians side included players from Sunraysia, western NSW, Warrnambool and the ACT. The event was sponsored by the Euston Club Resort, and held at its new bowls complex, featuring the new synthetic green overlooking the Murray River. According to club manager and long-time bowler Ray Jones, the Thirsty Bulls won the first match comfortably, but The Barbarians hit back to easily take the next two games. The Bulls recovered to win the fourth, setting up a fifth game ‘shoot-out.’ The Bulls led almost all the way, looking the winners after being six up on the scoreboard, with just one Barbarian bowl remaining. The Barbarians had three bowls surrounding the ‘kitty’ as team skipper Ross Maguire

stepped onto the mat, needing to shift the kitty 20 centimetres sideways to bring in more of his team’s bowls as ‘counters.’ According to Ray, and there were plenty of spectators who agreed, it was the greatest finishing bowl he had ever seen. Ross sent the bowl on its

way, and the timing, direction and weight was perfect, shifting the ‘kitty’ to the exact spot the Barbarians needed to pick up seven shots - and victory by the narrowest of margins. “The Bulls were disappointed, but gracious in defeat, recognising that they had just seen one of the finest finishing shots of all time,” Ray said. “I’ve never seen a shot like

that in my 30 years of bowls. It was amazing.” Ray later paid tribute to bowlers from both teams, many of whom had travelled long distances to be a part of the colourful and prestigious event. They included Trevor Lloyd from SA, who led a team of 16 equally talented players to Euston. And McGuire, the one with the magical shot, is a Riverina Premier League and highly-credentialled bowler. Other ‘top guns’ included Terry McInness (Australian mixed pairs champion) and his team from the ACT, Paul O’Donnell’s quartet from Warrnambool, and Euston’s own Wayne Gardner, Sandy Tarrant, Jamie Shield and young gun Brandon Tyers. The Barbarians players included dual Australian singles champion ‘Spider’ Monfries. Monfries and McInnes have more than 250 State games under their belts. Ray assured players and spectators that the weekend would be repeated, with plans already under way for the Euston Club to sponsor the challenge for the third time next year.

VFL champ on a mission for charity • From Page 70 “There’s nothing better than watching a live game of footy,” Ron said. “The atmosphere is simply electric, and it’s certainly a great medium for trying to engage these kids.” Ron said this latest project was still in the early stages, and was already starting to build momentum. “We have around 150 kids involved, and through my connections with Collingwood, I’ve been able to secure threegame memberships for each of them,” he said. “The next step of this program would include getting these kids to meet the players, hosting clinics, and eventually encouraging them to join local teams, and connect with others through sport. “Eventually we want to be in a position where we can offer these kids employment, or further education if they wish,

we could include in this program,” he said. “But we simply don’t have the funds to get them memberships, and essentially get the ball rolling.” Enter the Mildura Mag-

pies Supporters Group. Led by passionate Collingwood supporter, Julie Jewel, the group hosted Ron’s visit last week, where he addressed members, and talked about the program.

Julie said the supporters group was keen to support Ron’s cause, with plans to donate money to the ‘Be a Sport’ initiative, while also working towards sponsoring three or four local children who may benefit from the program. “Ron’s idea is superb, and is one that I think will appeal to a number of people looking to support charities,” she said. “We’re in the process of gauging interest from other community groups, and are hoping to enter three or four candidates in the program by August.” It’s an idea that follows on from one of the first initiatives Ron helped instigate through the X-Men group – the establishment of a fund to help past players recover from injuries sustained through their career. “There are statistics that suggest that anywhere from 70 to 80 percent of AFL players are forced to retire through injury,” Ron said.

“Even more surprising is that a majority of those players don’t have health insurance, and can’t afford the medical bills associated with those injuries. “Once your time with a club comes to an end you lose all of the privileges associated with it, including club doctors.” After significant work alongside the AFL’s administration, a fund was established to help players address medical issues, with millions of dollars now dedicated to the health needs of past players each year. And while a significant effort, Ron said the ‘Be a Sport’ project was proving even more worthwhile. More information on the ‘Be a Sport’ program, or the Mildura Magpies Supporters Group, is available by contacting Julie via email: juliemildura@hotmail.com, or on 5023 4314.

Jason joins the 300 club By VINNIE RODI THERE’S a bloke on television – goes by the name of Sam Newman – who often reminds the football community how good a player needs to be to reach the 300 game milestone. And while Sam is referring to those in the AFL, it’s a sentiment that applies to all levels of the sport – especially the grass roots. This week’s round of Millewa Football League action will be significant for one of Meringur’s favourite sons, with Jason ‘Boof’ Harmer, 39, set to play game number 300. Jason will run out with his Meringur Football Club team mates tomorrow at Lake Cullulleraine against third-placed Nangiloc, with ‘Boof’ saying

he was excited to reach the milestone. “I’ve known for most of this season that I was getting close to the 300,” Jason said. “I was actually due to reach it last season, but due to personal circumstances missed a fair bit of the season. “It’s going to be a great day, and hopefully we can get a win against Nangiloc.” The Meringur Football Club will host a special dinner following the game at the Lake Cullulleraine complex, with several of Jason’s past and present team mates to be on hand to help celebrate his achievement. Community members, and those associated with the Meringur Football Club, are also invited to attend. Jason said members of his family, including his wife Charlotte, his three children Zannah, 5, Milla, 4, and Clay,

2, and his parents and siblings will also attend the match. “Dad in particular is really looking forward to it – having played close to 300 games himself for the club,” Jason said. An extremely modest footballer, Jason’s prowess stems from a storied family history, with his father, several uncles, and even more cousins, playing with the club over the years. In fact one of his career highlights includes playing his first senior game alongside five other Harmers – all cousins. He is the second Harmer to officially reach 300 games with Meringur, with his cousin Pip achieving the same milestone several years ago. “It actually worked out really well,” Jason said. “Pip played his 300th game the

same day I reached my 200th – so it turned out to be a great day for the Harmer family, and the club.” A wheat farmer by trade (something else that runs in the Harmer family) Jason and his family reside on a 13,000 acre property in Meringur (some 80km outside of Mildura) – which certainly makes getting to training a weekly task. “We train in Merbein,” Jason said. “Living an hour out of town doesn’t make getting to training easy, but it’s something I’ve become used to over the years. “I train once a week (on a Thursday), and try to make sure that I have jobs or appointments organised in town each week.” Jason actually began his football career as a junior with the Merbein Football Club, however the lure of follow-

ing in his family’s footsteps proved too strong. “Obviously there is a strong family connection with Meringur, and I think I was always going to head to the club at some point,” Jason said. Jason’s senior career started in the late 1980s, with the nickname ‘Boof’ inherited from his father. “I became ‘Boof’ junior the moment I walked into the club,” Jason joked. “I have no idea how Dad got the name, but it’s one that stuck with me.” Jason has played senior football continuously since his debut – a career spanning more than 20 years – missing only a handful of games during the busy times of the farming season. “I’ve been lucky not to be on the receiving end of many major injuries,” Jason said. “You often see blokes suffer from hamstring and groin problems, and basically have to retire. “I think a couple of broken ribs, and a broken wrist, has been the worse for me.” Jason has enjoyed a number of highlights at the club, including playing in several final campaigns and even enjoying four years as club president, saying it was the culture of football that kept him coming back. “You can’t beat being a part of a footy club,” he said. “For me it’s a chance to catch up with a few mates, have a bit of fun, and generally get away from everyday life – which I think is important.” Jason said if he had one regret in his career, it was not playing in a premiership side. “A premiership would certainly be on the wish list before I hang up the boots,” he said. “Meringur hasn’t won a premiership since the 1960s, and being part of the team to break that drought would be a highlight.” Jason said he had no desire of hanging up the boots just yet, and would continue to represent the ‘Roos.’ “There are still a few blokes running around that are older than me,” he said. “And as long as my body can keep going, and I keep enjoying it, I can’t see why I won’t keep playing.” Meringur take on Nangiloc from 2.30pm.

Footy champ is doing it for the kids

YOU won’t find a person who has more passion for Australian Rules Football than former Collingwood and Carlton Football Club superstar, Ron O’Dwyer. A stalwart of the game, and a firm believer in looking after players once their careers have come to an end, Ron, 73, has made a name for himself both on and off the field. In terms of on-field success, you would have to have been around in the 1950s to have seen Ron run around in the Victorian Football League – where he represented both the Blues and the Magpies. He was one of the stars in the 1960 VFL Grand Final against Melbourne – named Best on Ground in a losing Collingwood team. And while Ron’s talents on the field made him a superstar, it’s his contributions to the game since his retirement that has generated the most publicity. Ron retired from football in 1961, and like most players of his day returned to ‘working life.’ “Football is a far different game today than what is was when I played,” Ron said. “Today it’s a profession – a business that’s worth billions of dollars. “There was nowhere near that kind of money around back in my day. “We had to work to live – playing football was just something we did on weekends. “We all had day jobs, and once the time came to hang up the boots it was only natural for most

•  MAGPIE PARTNERSHIP: VFL champion Ron O’Dwyer, with Mildura Magpies Supporters Group member Julie Jewel during his visit to the region last players to return to ‘normal life.’” Retiring for good 10 years ago, Ron was immediately approached by the Collingwood Football Club’s Past Players Association to join their ranks. It wasn’t long before Ron was named Collingwood’s representative in the Australian Football League Player Association’s ‘X-

Men’ group. Made up of past players, the group’s aim is to ensure that AFL players still have a voice in the organisation once their careers come to an end. “There is close to 7000 past players involved in the group, and it’s an organisation that I’ve really enjoyed being a part of for the

past 10 years,” Ron said. “I’ve had the pleasure of being president, while also forming a number of close relationships with a lot of past and present players.” Visiting Mildura last week at the invitation of the Mildura Magpies Supporters Group, Ron was in town to promote his – and the AFL X-Men’s – latest initiative.

The ‘Be a Sport’ campaign is aimed at giving disadvantaged children a sense of belonging through football. It starts with participants receiving a three-game membership to the Collingwood Football Club, allowing them to experience the sport. •  Continued Page 67

A champion career for a legend of the game RON O’Dwyer’s VFL playing career started at the age of 17, with the talented rover recruited to the Carlton Football Club in 1957. And while not playing a high number of senior games, Ron’s time as a player was far from uneventful. Brought up in Broken Hill, Ron said recruitment to VFL clubs was far different in those days, with scouts simply offering spots to those who they thought had talent. “If a club wanted you, or thought you had ability, they

simply came and recruited you,” he said. “There were no draft camps or anything like that, they just approached players with potential. “I was a pretty good rover back in the day, and someone from Carlton obviously saw something in me.” Ron proved a talent on the field, with his skills electrifying, and his raw potential something to excite Blues fans of the day. Unfortunately for Ron, he joined the Carlton Foot-

ball Club in a time of innerturmoil, with factions within the group threatening to tear the club in two. The chaos centred on current coach Jim Francis, and soon to be retired captain Ken Hards. According to Ron, Hards wanted to coach the club in 1959 – something that conflicted with Francis’ two-year contract. “Ken eventually got enough numbers on his side to stage a type of coup,” Ron said. “He basically brought

the group together and asked those who supported him to step to one side of the room, and those who supported Jim to step to other side. “I was only an 18-yearold kid at the time – in my second year of the club – and had absolutely no idea what to do, so I stood my ground. “Ken ended up getting his way, and saw my actions as non-supportive.” Ron was soon dropped to the reserves, after playing only 13 senior games for the Blues.

He soon asked for a transfer to Collingwood – who were a powerhouse of the competition – and was granted his wish in 1960. Ron was unfortunate to walk into a side boasting a quality midfield, making earning game-time in the seniors a tough ask. He managed to show form in the latter half of the year, earning a spot in the Grand Final team that took on Melbourne. Coming up against the likes of AFL legend Ron Ba-

rassi – who Ron considers one of the greatest players his ever played against – Melbourne eventually proved too strong, walking away with the Premiership. Ron was named Best on Ground – awarded a leather kit bag for his efforts. “There were no Norm Smith medals handed out in those days – namely because Norm Smith was coaching at the time,” Ron said. Ron retired in 1961, with his focus then turning to coaching.

J-League receives financial boost FOOTBALL Federation VictoriaSunraysia has announced that it will once again join forces with Harvey Norman Mildura, with the local business again coming on board as major sponsors of the J-League competition. Part of the deal will see each J-League participant receive their own Harvey Norman J-League soccer ball, with Harvey Norman Mildura spokesman, Greg Smith, saying the group was excited to be supporting local sport at the grass-roots level. “Harvey Norman is a family-oriented store, and we are pleased to once again be able to assist the children of Sunray-

sia in this way,” he said. FFV Sunraysia Administrator, Ross Mosello, said the contribution would help the region’s young soccer players hone their skills at home. “Sunraysia is at the forefront of the Small Sided Games revolution – and each player having their own football is a key,” he said. “It’s wonderful that with the generous assistance of Harvey Norman Mildura we are able to give each child a quality football to take home and play with.” The 2011 J-League season is played each Sunday at the Aerodrome Ovals.
