Vol. 5 No. 6

Former Hawthorn and North Melbourne footballer Nathan Thompson has told Mildura table grape growers of his fight against depression, with a footy-based theme...

How to beat the blues • Sunraysia Table Grape Growers Association president John Argiro, right, says the decision to bring Nathan Thompson to Mildura to talk to growers about depression was a much-needed shot in the arm for at-risk local growers. Nathan’s story will surprise many people who saw the champion in action for 179 AFL Games. See Page 76.

f f a Ch T

here was a Scottish painter named Smokey MacGregor who was very interested in making a penny where and when he could, so he often thinned down his paint to make it go a wee bit further. As it happened, he got away with this for some time, but eventually the Baptist Church decided to do a big restoration job on the outside of one of their biggest buildings. Smokey put in a bid, and, because his price was so low, he got the job. So he set about erecting the scaffolding and setting up the planks, and buying the paint and, yes, I am sorry to say, thinning it down with water... Well, Smokey was up on the scaffolding, painting away, the job nearly completed, when suddenly there was a horrendous clap of thunder, the sky opened, and the rain poured down, washing the thinned paint from the church and knocking Smokey clear off the scaffold to land on the lawn among the gravestones, surrounded by telltale puddles of the thinned and useless paint. Smokey was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from the Almighty, He got down on his knees and cried: “Oh, God, Oh God, forgive me; what should I do?” And from the thunder, a mighty voice spoke... “Repaint! Repaint! And thin no more!”

The stranger picked it up, and with a puzzled expression and a tip of his hat, went off down the street. The next day, Sister Barbara was told that a man was at her door, insisting on seeing her. She went down, and found the stranger waiting. Without a word, he handed her a huge wad of $100 bills. “What’s this?” she asked. “That’s the $8000 you have coming Sister,” he replied. “Don’t Despair paid 80-to one!”

Sunraysia’s big wet...

December deluge

By BEN PISCIONERI UP until this week it was farmers who were bearing the brunt of what is now the wettest Mildura year on record, with almost 600mm of rain since January. But from early this week it hit the wider community with dozens of homes threatened by flood waters, roads underwater and a need to remove the Mildura Weir to allow floods further upstream to pass through. More than 39mm of rain fell overnight on Tuesday, a follow up to the 52mm on Sunday. By the end of Wednesday it brought the district’s total for the year to 598.2mm, smashing the previous record of 536.4mm set in 1973. It even drowned the 556.3mm recorded at the Mildura weather station’s previous base at the Mildura Post Office, which was set in 1894. It resulted in more than 30 calls for help to Mildura’s State Emergency Service (SES) headquarters between 10pm Monday and 2am Tuesday, with the majority for flooding in and around houses. The calls continued from about 4am Wednesday as the mop-up continued from the night’s deluge. Several roads, including 14th Street, near Ginquam Avenue, were blocked to traffic as Lower Murray Water and Mildura Rural City Council (MRCC) staff worked to not only clear the roadway of water, but help pump water from nearby properties. SES staff said in many cases nearby drainage systems were either unable to keep up with the amount of water or simply not adequate, particularly around the Red Cliffs side of Irymple, near 14th and 15th Streets. Meanwhile, closer to the Mildura city centre, the intersection of Seventh Street and Etiwanda Avenue was among flood trouble spots. Further from the city centre, many fruit properties were under water. There were even reports of some properties being flooded so badly that strainer posts were barely visible in the worst-hit areas. It prompted a statement from Lower

Murray Water on Wednesday afternoon, claiming its drainage systems weren’t designed for the rains that have hit Sunraysia this week. “Today (Wednesday) we received many, many calls about the LMW irrigation drainage system,” LMWs general manager Customer Services, Owen Russell, said in a statement. “The LMW irrigation drainage system

Shock MDBA departure By BEN PISCIONERI THE shock resignation of Murray Darling Basin Authority chairman Michael Taylor this week has sparked calls for a total re-think of the MDBA plan. Mr Taylor announced his resignation on Tuesday and said he believed the MDBA was not equipped to deliver a “sustainable plan for the Basin.” “While the Authority has an important part to play, it is neither empowered nor equipped to undertake the entire complex task,” he said this week. He also questioned whether the charter set out by the Federal Government, which has previously been criticised for being biased towards environmental groups, was achievable. “The Guide was developed with full regard to the requirements of the Water Act, and in close consultation with the Australian Government Solicitor,” Mr Taylor said in relation to the MDBA guide plan released earlier this year. “However, the Authority has sought, and obtained, further confirmation that it cannot compromise the minimum level of water required to restore the system’s environment on social or economic grounds.” Prime Minister Julia Gillard said this week she didn’t agree with Mr Taylor’s assessment. Sunraysia Irrigators Council chairman Danny Lee said now was the perfect opportunity to abandon what has been shown to be a failed plan. “He (Michael Taylor) knew he was in a no-win situation,” Mr Lee said in response to Mr Taylor’s resignation.

•  Outgoing MDBA chairman Michael Taylor. “He was never going to be able to sell the Government’s message, and I think even the Government underestimated the rebellion the plan would cause.” Mr Lee said the current plan and resulting furor in irrigation communities was a result of the Government “listening to mindless bureaucrats and pandering to the Greens.” He said there was a much simpler, more effective approach right in front of the Government. “There’s a very simple way for both the environment and irrigation communities to get all the water they want,” Mr Lee said. “Engineering solutions can get all the environmental water they need, and they won’t need to take any water from productive horticulture. “There are already proven engineering solutions out there, it’s just a matter of having the political will to go down that path. “We need to replace the bureaucrats with water experts and engi-

•  BAN THE PLAN: Sunraysia Irrigators Council chairman Danny Lee says the key to the Murray Darling Basin’s future lies in engineering solutions. neers and form an authority advisory group, whose job it will be for the next five years to explore every engineering option to create water savings.” Mr Lee pointed to numerous examples of where water savings could be made. “Stormwater harvesting for example,” he said. “Adelaide has just had its wettest day ever and 99 percent of the rain

that fell ended up in the sea. “The solutions are there. I was listening to some figures on radio this week, where they were saying more rain has fallen in New South Wales than the entire irrigation water use in the Murray Darling Basin over the past 15 years, and that’s before this week’s rains. “There are so many opportunities out there. “Just take a look at our TV news

screens this week. There’s been enough water running to waste following all this rain to keep the Murray Darling Basin running forever, if they’d just had the infrastructure in place to get even a percentage of this rain.” Mr Lee used comments by two former Victorian Water Ministers to illustrate his point. “I can remember (John) Thwaites and (Tim) Holding saying, ‘there’s no water to put in the dams, that’s never going to be an option’,” he said. “Well, if we’d have built those dams, we’d have enough water now to guarantee the future of the Basin for 20 years without a drop of rain falling. “But we haven’t done it and now we have to play catch up. “We’ve already lost this massive, massive flood event, and now they’re going to have to hope that it’s going to happen again. “We’ve got to keep these bureaucrats away from it.” While he holds out hope common sense will prevail, Mr Lee remains skeptical there will be a change of direction on the part of the government. “The trouble they’ve got is, they’ll lose face if they do that. They’re still too busy pandering to the Greens. “It was the government who issued all the water entitlements - farmers did nothing illegal, they just did what the government of the day said to do. “Now, by saying the system is over-allocated, the government has admitted they’ve given out too many entitlements, that’s a government mistake, and now they’re saying they’re going to fix.”

Demolition a work of art

MILDURA Arts Centre theatre is now a mere shadow of the building it was as demolition works continue as part of the $8.7 million redevelopment project. Most of the building’s iconic fly tower has been demolished and the majority of the interior is now exposed. The foyer area has almost been totally pulled down and much of the exterior brickwork on the west side of the building removed. Most of the demolition works are expected to be completed before Christmas.

While the Mildura Arts Centre gallery is closed during demolition works, the arts still have a presence in Mildura with the recent opening of Mildura Arts Centre Project Space in Mildura’s Central Business District. It is located at 39 Langtree Avenue and is currently showing the annual secondary schools arts exhibition, Picked ‘10. Mildura Arts Centre Project Space is open 10am to 4pm Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 10am to 8pm Saturdays and 10am to 2pm Sundays.

Police in ‘high-risk’ Rain won’t stop locusts Red Cliffs arrests SPECIAL Operations Group police have assisted Mildura and Red Cliffs police in the arrest of two suspects wanted for questioning over a spate of armed robberies in the Elizabeth Vale region of Adelaide. Inspector Simon Clemence of Mildura police said Mildura Detectives, acting on information from South Australia Police, had conducted surveillance of a premises in Fitzroy Avenue, Red Cliffs. They identified a 21-year-old male suspect and his 20-year-old female companion, who were wanted for questioning over three armed robberies and an

attempted armed robbery on post offices and a Blockbuster Video store in early November. At 2.15pm yesterday, Mildura detectives, members of the Special Operations Group and police from Mildura and Red Cliffs cordoned off the Fitzroy St area and executed what Inspector Clemence termed “a high risk arrest” of the suspect and his girlfriend. A sawn-off rifle was recovered from the Red Cliffs premises. The two suspects will appear before Mildura Magistrate’s Court today.

DESPITE this month’s record-breaking rains, there has been no impact on locust numbers according to the Victorian Department of Primary Industries. The DPI says wet weather has only slowed Australian Locust Plague activity, but expects increased locust activity over coming days with the advent of warmer, drier weather. While the district still waits for hoppers to arrive in plague numbers, the

DPI is already planning for what could be another wave next year. “Landholders should report egg-laying to DPI so that we can monitor activity and inform landholders of the best time to act in their region,” State locust director, Robert Walker, said yesterday. The Australian Plague Locust Commission said this week current egg beds could hatch in the next 10 to 15 days, leading to second generation hoppers.

Sunraysia’s big wet...

• From Page 3. “It’s going to take some time for some growers to get onto their properties and the difficulty now is, even if they could afford and source sprays, if they already have primary and secondary stages of Downy, it could be the end, depending on what they’ve done before the rain. “We’re also hearing of some powdery Mildew, which is very early, normally we see that later in the year. “This morning (Wednesday) I also had a report from Robinvale of Botrytis.” The SES’s northwest incident control centre said on Wednesday afternoon they were not aware of any evacuations in Mildura caused by the rain. Grain growers have had to watch crops either rot or degrade, left powerless to get onto their properties in the middle of what was supposed to be the best harvest in decades. There have also been countless stories over the past week of grape and grain growers having to call for cranes to lift bogged vehicles out of the mud, as some attempted to beat the wet weather. Sunraysia now appears to have several days reprieve from the rain with mainly sunny and dry conditions forecast over the next few days. However, the district’s rainy December might not be over just yet, as the Bureau of Meteorology is predicting possible showers again on Wednesday next week.

• STORM FRONT: TOP There were ominous warning signs of the deluge that would follow on Tuesday night. The storm front approaches from the south behind the Mildura Airport. LEFT - Dennis Berry, left, and son, Craig, battle flood waters on Wednesday morning as Craig’s daughter, Tayla looks on from dad’s shoulders. ABOVE - It was difficult for some drivers to avoid water on some roads early Wednesday morning.

Some areas recorded up to 50mm of rain overnight Tuesday and during Wednesday.

Street offences are on the rise in the lead-up to Christmas, and Mildura police have warned potential offenders they had better be on their best behaviour. All patrolling police have been instructed to get out the infringement book in a case of...

No more Mr Nice Cop! MILDURA police will adopt a zero tolerance policy on street offences in the lead-up to, and during, the Christmas holiday period. They have also stepped up the campaign on drinkdrivers, with latest figures in the Sunraysia region described as “appalling.” And police will also be working with council parking officers and Neighborhood Watch volunteers in a ‘Lock it or lose it’ campaign aimed at people who leave their vehicles unlocked. Police say they are astounded at the attitude of some car owners, including the driver issued a penalty notice after telling police it was his right to leave his car unlocked. Inspector Simon Clemence of Mildura Police said thefts of cars and theft of valuables from motor cars was a rising crime problem in Mildura. He said too many cars were left unlocked, and many others were broken into because valuables were left in plain view. Most crimes happen in private streets and driveways.

The ‘Lock it or lose it’ initiative will involve car park and street park audits in random or targeted areas. Neighbourhood Watch volunteers and council bylaws officers will identify cars that are left unlocked, or which have valuables in plain sight, and pass on the registration number to police, who will contact the owner and issue a warning. Insp. Clemence said the program is designed to help Police tackle the rising crime rate in relation to both theft of and theft from motor vehicles. “A similar program at Shepparton lowered the number of detected offences in this area by 40 percent, and it is hoped that we can achieve a similar result in Mildura,” he said. Apart from crime hot spots, other areas such as the CBD and shopping centre car parks will also be targeted in an attempt to reduce the number of cars being stolen or broken into. Neighbourhood Watch is also looking at the possibility of signage in car park areas and at entry points of shopping centres to remind

CRIME BEAT drivers to lock their car and to remove or hide valuables. Insp. Clemence said that although it is only early, these strategies appeared to be having some impact on the crime rate. “It is now more important than ever that we continue to develop and expand the program to obtain maximum coverage for maximum results,” he said. Neighbourhood Watch coordinator Helen Worcester has reminded residents that with warmer weather almost upon us, the chances of leaving a car window down increases greatly. “It is important that the community remain vigilant and take responsibility for their property,” she said. “The few seconds it takes to close a window, hide valuables

from view and lock a car door could save the owner hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.” Meanwhile, Mildura detectives are urging the public to record the serial and model numbers of household items. They say it is also good practice to take photos of major electrical items and other valuables, in particular jewellery. Taking these precautions will assist police in identifying stolen property. They say people who receive, or are given, valuable items such as TV’s and Play Stations for Christmas should note the serial numbers for future reference.

Check your phone Police are also asking the public to open the back of their mobile phones and

note down the IME number. Then, if the phone is lost or stolen, police can track the phone if it is being used. A general duties uniformed policeman on patrol in Mildura said that during recent patrols, he had came across far too many unsecured vehicles, and houses left open. He said he even issued a penalty notice to one person to get the point across after the owner argued that it was his right to leave his car unlocked. The policeman reported many cases of vehicles parked on the sides of the road with windows down. “I speak to them and give them advice regarding the potential for crime and they say ‘I don’t care, let them steal my car. I’m insured!’ Or ‘Who’s going to steal from me? No one would do that!’ “These people are just victims in waiting, and I really don’t enjoy the extra paper work. It’s like they just don’t believe it will actually happen to them,” he said. Police said that with Christmas approaching, and purse strings tight, crimes involving property will be on the rise, but they are hop-

ing that if people heed the warnings, the rise will be a small one. People were also warned about leaving house doors and windows unlocked, as there are several active local burglars who take advantage of this. They say the message is a simple one - take care to secure property, car, home, shed and valuables. A minute or two of work may save hours of heartache later and will free up more police to conduct more proactive patrols to prevent crime.

Mildura Party Safe Police have reminded readers that they can register parties at the police station. This will make police aware of the parties and who is running them. Mobile patrols will take a list of parties registered with ‘Party Safe,’ and as time allows, police will do drive-bys to ensure the safety of all concerned. Party Safe registration forms are available at www.norwestsafety.org. • Continued Page 57

Locusts can obstruct your vision when driving. Be prepared. Locust swarms can be a driving hazard. Swarms can be very dense, and can make it difficult to see the road and oncoming traffic. There are several precautions you can take. You can add insect cleaning agent to your windscreen washer system. This is available from larger

supermarkets and motor vehicle speciality stores. When travelling in regional Victoria it may be worth attaching an insect screen to the external radiator air-inlet for extra protection. You should also carry spare water for the windscreen washer system, as well as extra cleaning agent and clean

dry cloths. Locusts may also swarm at night so it is important to keep your headlights clean. If locusts obstruct your vision, slow down and pull over safely to the side of the road until the swarm has passed. To report swarm activity call the DPI Locust Hotline on 1300 135 559.

Some taxi companies get themselves a bad name... over-charging, dirty cabs, rude drivers... but not in Mildura. This is the story of how taxi staff came to the aid of a ‘damsel in distress,’ with the driver and base operator going to great lengths – at no extra cost – to make sure a hearing-impaired visitor was safe for the night. ALAN ERSKINE reports on a company going....

Over and above the call of duty SHE arrived as a passenger on a bus in the middle of the night, and caught a taxi to her pre-booked Deakin Avenue motel. But the bus had arrived later than usual, and the motel owner, having waited in vain for his guest until 11.30pm, had gone to bed, thinking she wasn’t coming. The visitor, a hearing-impaired woman from Wollongong, was in a panic about what to do, but that’s when taxi driver Brendan Robertson, 36, took control. His assistance, and that of Mildura Taxis base radio operator Sandra Foster, led to the visitor, Veronica Greenwood, contacting the Mildura Weekly to let readers know there are still some ‘Good Samaritans’ out there, and she wants to let as many people as possible know that some of them live in Mildura. Veronica, 53, told how she ar-

rived in Mildura on a V-Line bus late on a Friday night, ready for a ‘sleepover’ before continuing on to Berri the following day to catch up with a friend for a week’s holiday. After getting off the bus in Mildura, she phoned for a taxi, and it was Brendan who got the job. The father of four, who has been driving cabs for the past four years, delivered Veronica to the front door of Sandors Motel, where Veronica had a pre-paid room, but it was after midnight and the lights were out. They couldn’t rouse anyone, and there was no night bell. Veronic takes up the story; “Brendan turned off the meter and drove me around the city looking for a motel that had a receptionist.,” she said. “Half-an-hour passed before we finally found a night clerk.

The letters, hundreds of them, had been in storage since the end of the Second World War. The young couple had written two or three times a week, sometimes more, during the war years, and they are now being painstakingly transcribed for family descendants. The Mildura Weekly’s ALAN ERSKINE reports on Joan Hill’s...

Letters from the past

one of her letters – she used to number each one – hadn’t arrived. He heard later that it was on a plane that was shot down by a Japanese fighter plane over the ocean. The story really begins back in 1940, when a young Joan Henshall is a member of St Margaret’s Anglican Church choir. Ron Hill later ‘confessed’ that one of the reasons he went to church was so he could be close to her. They had spoken briefly at church youth social nights, but getting a date was another matter. Ron couldn’t help noticing that Joan was never alone.. Her father always picked her up after church or social events, or organised a taxi for her. But they worked in close proximity, Ron as a clerk at

Mildura Co-op in 8th Street, and Joan at the 7th Street dairy, and their paths crossed often enough for Ron to ask Joan if he could partner her at a Mildura deb ball. She was quite taken by this tall, quiet and debonair young man, and that was the start of a special relationship that still brings out strong emotions in Joan as she re-lives the past through Ron’s letters. She talks quietly and proudly of a loving friendship and courtship, how they got to know each other well in the year leading up to when Ron went away, how Ron first had to leave home for compulsory National Service, signalling the start of their letter writing, their engagement in December, 1942 on one of his infrequent trips home, and then Ron’s posting to the islands off Borneo. Joan’s letter writing started immediately, as many as three or four a week, sometimes one a day. “I wouldn’t wait for a reply,” she said, “I would just write, telling Ron all the latest news from home, how the town was going, what people were doing, anything at all.” She said Ron and his

• MEMORIES: Joan Hill has many lovely memories of her early years, thanks to a collection of more than 340 letters written by her late husband Ron when he served overseas during the war effort. Joan is having them re-typed as a legacy to her family. INSET is a young Ron Hill in uniform during a visit back home, and ABOVE LEFT - a young Joan on one of the first Ansett flights out of Mildura in 1938, along with the original ticket. Her dad was the first Ansett agent. mates were hungry for news from home. They also didn’t mind when Joan baked cakes and biscuits, which were sent to the troops in speciallysealed tins. Sometimes it took two or three months for the cakes to arrive, and when they did they didn’t last long... Ron made sure he shared with five mates in his tent. Then came the day that both were waiting for... time for a wedding. Ron hadn’t had

time off for well over a year, and was granted extended leave. Joan had thought well ahead, and had her dress all ready... in fact she had it ready four months early...anticipating that if Ron had leave she wouldn’t have much notice, as the Army didn’t give much away. The telegram stating that Ron would be home for Easter, 1944, still took them by surprise...especially Joan’s

mum Ethel, who had caught the plane to Adelaide to spend Easter with her husband Bert, who was in the Air Force. She couldn’t book a flight home, because priority seats were reserved for armed forces personnel, so Ethel caught a ride on the outback mail truck, going on deliveries through outback SA before eventually finding her way to Mildura. • Continued Page 23

JOAN Hill admits she has been a bit lost... more than a little lonely... since her husband Ron passed away almost five years ago. Four children, nine grandchildren and six great grandchildren bring her great joy, but no-one can replace the bloke who swept her off her feet more than 66 years ago. Theirs was a love story that broke down all barriers of time and distance, and something that World War Two certainly wasn’t going to interfere with... evidenced by the fact that the couple wrote well over 1000 letters between them as they kept in touch during the war years. Joan, now just a few months short of her 90th birthday, had been sorting through some personal possessions when she came across Ron’s letters – the first one in 1940 and the last in December, 1945 – and even she was surprised that she hadn’t thrown any of them away over the years. Ron, on the other hand, serving with the Army in Borneo, couldn’t afford to keep Joan’s letters. “It would have been impossible,” Joan said. “There would have been well over 700 of them, maybe more. I used to write at least three or four a week, sometimes one a day.” Their story is typical of an era when the cream of Australia’s young men were called up for the war effort, leaving behind wives. fiances, girlfriends, family and friends – and finding that the only way to keep in touch was by regular mail services. Mind you, not all the mail got through. Joan tells how Ron wrote to tell her that

Pat on back for taxis Mildura Weekly - 10/12/10

• From Page 12 “Just as I was about to hand the clerk my card for payment, Brendan rushed in the door to tell me that his office had phoned the motel where the original booking was made, and they were waiting for me.” When they arrived back at Sandors, there was the owner, waiting patiently in his dressing gown, key in hand, an apologetic but welcoming smile on his face. It was nearing 1.30am as Veronica climbed into bed, and in her words: “had a sound sleep until 8am.” Vicky Richichi, who has operated Sandors with her husband Frank for the past five months, remembered that night well, and said they had waited up till just before midnight before going to bed, later to be woken up by a phone call from the taxi company inquiring about Veronica’s room. Vicky said she and Frank were glad that everything had turned out for the best, and were happy that Veronica has some nice things to say about Mildura hospitality. The couple are doing a motel upgrade, which will include a night security system and late check-in service. Veronica said everyone concerned couldn’t have been more helpful. She said the night porter at the Inlander, Chris Fulton, didn’t mind the late night visit, and despite missing out on filling another room for the night, was pleased that Veronica could take advantage of the Sandors room that had been pre-paid. Veronica couldn’t speak highly enough of the lengths that Brendan and Sandra went to in

making sure she was safe for the night, despite it being one of the busiest nights of the week for the taxi company. “Brendan charged me $20 for about $150 worth of work,” she said. “He was more concerned about me having somewhere safe to spend the night than he was with the fare.” Brendan said later he made sure he let the taxi owner Dick Dalla Santa and other cabs know the reason he wasn’t picking up fares for that part of the night. “Next time I’ll make sure I am armed with the contact number of my motel,” Veronica said, adding that she hoped all those who helped her have a safe and happy Christmas. • FOOTNOTE: Veronica also said that as the taxi was driving her around town trying to find a place to stay, a lean, angry young man with curly blonde hair slammed his fist into the bonnet of the taxi, causing a dent. “Brendan doesn’t deserve this to happen,” she said.

Aussie grain harvest ‘holiday’ for great Dane FOR 28-year-old Danish mechanic Anders Melgaard, a three-month working ‘holiday’ in Australia has been a journey of massive contrasts. For a start there’s the climate. At the moment his homeland is freezing its way through sub-zero maximum temperatures, while he’s been sweltering through temperatures well into the mid-30s with high humidity. Then there’s the Aussie farming culture, starting with the property sizes. He’s used to seeing grain properties up to 350 hectares in Denmark. In Australia it’s not unusual to find broadacre properties measured in tens of thousands of hectares. Aussie farmers’ attitudes were another standout. “Yeah, they’re different alright,” Anders said. “They’re actually more relaxed here so far, from what I’ve seen. “I can see that in the dealerships as well, it’s more relaxed. “At home, it’s a problem if I have to add five minutes to my time sheet to get something done, they really push us hard.” Anders was working in Mildura this week as part of an informal international mechanic exchange program within agricultural machinery giant Agco. Agco has Massey Ferguson and Fendt, distributed locally by AggTech Machinery, among a plethora of brands under its umbrella. Under the program, Anders will

spend three months in Australia concentrating on Massey Ferguson’s grain headers. He’s been following the grain harvest down from Queensland, New South Wales and into Victoria this week, before setting off for South Australia. Along the way he provides parts support to local dealerships at the peak of the grain harvest, when grain headers are most likely to need attention. It means he’s been going out onto grain properties with local mechanics, complementing the work they do, and meeting local farmers. Now two months into his trip, Anders said the grain industry in Australia operates very differently to his homeland. He said there is none of the heavy reliance on grain contractors seen in Australia, where contractors spend weeks, if not months, travelling the grain belt harvesting farmers’ properties. Anders said most Danish grain farmers have their own headers and harvest their own properties. “We don’t have contractors who move down through the country,” he said. “Even the smallest farmer in Denmark has a header.” As a result, the work of a grain header mechanic in Denmark can sometimes be very different to Australia. “A lot of the harvesters back home are a lot older than what I’ve seen here so far,” Anders said.

“We have very old machines. It’s not unusual to see machines that are maybe 30-years-old. Generally though, they might upgrade their header every 10 years or so.” Anders said while Danish farms are much smaller than their Australian variants, they’re much more productive per hectare, due mostly to the soil and climate.

“We might have smaller fields but I think we grow twice as much per hectare as they do here,” he said. “I think the soil is better, plus the rainfall. Our soil is mostly black soil.” Anders will continue his working ‘holiday’ until mid-February, when he’ll return to his homeland.

Vince Lamattina is a quietly-spoken Mildura father of four... a motor mechanic by trade and a horticulturist by choice... but he’s also

Three limos! Now that’s By ALAN ERSKINE WHEN Mildura motor mechanic and horticulturist Vince Lamattina decided to get into the limousine hire business, he settled on a stretched version of a 1998 Ford Fairlane that would carry at least seven people. The demand was such that it wasn’t long before he added a second stretch limo - also a Ford Fairlane - to the fleet. But customers kept asking him to get something that would take more people, so Vince decided to add a third car, this time going for a stretch version of a Holden Statesman that was licensed to carry nine passengers. “Now there is a demand for a bigger one still,” Vince said this week. “It seems the vehicles are never big enough...now I have my eyes on a limo that will seat at least 11 people.” The 47-year-old father of four had been dreaming of getting into the hire car business for some years, but it wasn’t until he picked up a damaged Ford Fairlane at the wrecker’s that he started to get really serious. Working every spare hour, in between running a vehicle repair shop and a 18-acre fruit block at Irymple, Vince stripped the Fairlane to the

bare bones, cut it in half to add a stretched section, strengthened the chassis, and bit by bit, working day and night, did all the other neces-

sary modifications to get the car ready for its first job – a wedding. He picked up his second car in late 2007 after it had been involved in a crash in Melbourne. Vince

spent four months ‘stretching’ and strengthening the vehicle, making it 15cm longer than his first limo. With both vehicles pre-booked for weddings on the same day, it was a race against time to finish Stretch Limo No. 2... especially when the

custom-made lengthy side windows didn’t turn up from Melbourne until the day before the wedddings. It was touch and go, Vince admitted. He started work on the Friday afternoon, painting the trim and laminating the two lengthy

Operation Santa is on! ‘OPERATION Santa’ is in full swing at Centro Mildura’s Target outlet, with the initiative – a joint venture between Target and the Uniting Church – aimed at spreading Christmas cheer. Marked by the big red Christmas tree in the Target foyer, Operation Santa will continue until December 23, with locals encouraged to support the cause by donating gifts. All gifts donated will be go to local residents in need, with the initiative last year seeing more than 65,000 gifts donated across Australia – a figure organisers are looking to exceed in 2010. Locals can choose to either purchase a gift card, or simply donate a present of their choice, with more information available by contacting Mildura co-ordinator Lyn Adams on 5025 2996. Advertorial

That was in 1949, and it remains the family home to this day. Joan says that Ron became a different man after starting to work the 28-acre property, and was happy and contented, growing excellent fruit, helping raise a family, and throwing himself into RSL and other community work. “At one stage he was having meetings almost every night,” she says. Joan misses Ron terribly, but has kept up her piano and organ playing, something she first started for St Margaret’s Anglican Church in 1945, and which she has been doing at St John’s

Aimed to give horse-enthusiasts an introduction to the equine industry in this 2 year, part time course, you will learn the skills to work effectively in the industry and handle horses safely.

• HAPPY DAYS: One of Joan’s favourite snapshots of her late husband Ron, celebrating a milestone birthday at their Birdwoodton home. Joan also has a collection of other photographs, including her family’s original stately home near 13th Street and Ontario (the palm trees are still there), and a copy of a pamphlet the Japanese dropped over Borneo, threatening more bombing raids. in Merbein for the past 50 years. She also spends one afternoon a month entertaining the residents of Chaffey and Princes Court Homes for The Aged... and says she will continue as long as she can. She is a little surprised at how quickly time flies when

you’re busy... especially with her project of getting all her precious letters transcribed. “I’ve re-read them all now,” she says. “It’s been a moving experience. There were a lot of things I had forgotten about until I read Ron’s letters... then it all comes flooding back.”

For those that own their own horse, you can develop horse riding skills, perform basic riding tasks and assist in preparation of a horse for a competition. To be eligible for this course, pre-entry requirements will include assessment of literacy, numeracy and levels of physical stamina and agility via interview.

“Everything worked out really well in the end,” Joan said. “Ron had almost a month off, the wedding went off perfectly, and we spent a lovely honeymoon in the Sherbrooke Forest region of the Dandenongs outside Melbourne. “Later, when Ron was posted back to Labuan Island off Borneo, he would write lovely letters saying how the tropical terrain on the island reminded him of our time at Sherbrooke.” Joan admits she doesn’t quite know what to do with the letters, and other special reminders of her late husband. It’s an emotional time for her, reliving the past, and what she describes as a very special and loving marriage. She has given some items, such as Ron’s kit bag and his Armyissue mosquito net, to the Merbein RSL, but the letters are a little too personal to share. They are faded now, and Joan is having them transcribed after repeated requests from her grandchildren... well... apart from 20 or so which she has read and re-read many times, and which, she says with a young-at-heart gleam in her eye, are probably a bit too personal for other eyes. As well as counting the letters. Joan says that back in those days she was counting down the days to when she and Ron would be re-united. They had discussed having a family after their wedding, and Ron asked her to wait until war’s end... he wanted to be there for all the births. And that’s exactly what happened – the couple had four children, and Joan says she wouldn’t have changed a thing if she had her life all over again. She said that Ron, like many other service personnel, found it hard to settle down after the

A classic musical with a Greek twist THERE’S probably not a person in the world who hasn’t seen ‘Grease,’ with the musical a favourite for many. And while most would agree that the story itself – which focuses on young love and rebellious teenagers in the 1950s – is fine just the way it is, one local theatre group has proven that perhaps there’s room for a reboot. ‘Greece is da word’ is the latest music-comedy to come from local writer/performer Rob Symes, with his Ratbagz Theatre Group putting their own spin on the classic. The rock ‘n’ roll musical follows young lovers Aphrodite and Silvano – Greek versions of Danny and Sandy – and their friends at Parthenon High, a local high school in Mildura. Lots of references are made to life in Mildura, with Rob describing this production – the 34th he has written – as one of his best. “All the themes that made the original ‘Grease’ great – young love, rebellion – are still there, all we’ve done is put them in a different setting,” Rob said. “There’s a fish and chip shop, Parthenon High School, and a whole bunch of familiar, yet different, characters. “We’ve also written a few songs to fit in with the new setting, while also incorporating a couple of songs fans of the original ‘Grease’ may know.” Rob said the show features some of Sunraysia’s best and well-known entertainers, including Naomi James, Nigel Hoyle and David Bean, with ‘Aphrodite’ played by Clare Taylor. “We have a very talented cast portraying these characters,” he said. “Each brings something different, and Clare’s voice is truly amazing.” The production – which officially got underway last weekend – has already received great feedback, with Rob saying the response had been overwhelming. “We’ve already had two sellout shows on the weekend, with not many tickets left for our final two performances this Friday and Saturday,” he said. “I think the show is easy to relate to, especial-

ly if you’ve lived in Mildura for a time.” Showcased in theatre-restaurant style, audience members are also treated to a three-course meal, and complimentary wine courtesy of Jacobs Creek, during the performance. Dancing, and a chance to meet the cast, will follow, with audience members encouraged to dress in the style of the 1950s. “Our first two nights have been absolutely terrific,” Rob said. “Everyone has embraced the theme, and the show itself has been a hit.” It’s a style Rob said he was aiming to showcase more of, set to put his vast background and experience to another use – teaching. “I’ve done this type of performance all of my life, and I certainly feel there’s a place for it here in Mildura,” he said. “This style of theatre is quite unique, fast paced and dynamic entertainment, and Mildura will be seeing more of it in the future as I hope to teach it in association with TAFE next year. “If we can somehow get this course up and running, it will basically be either a Certificate II, III or IV in Live Production, Theatre and Events, and ideally culminate in an end-of-course theatre restaurant production similar to this one.” ‘Greece is da word’ will play at the Quality Hotel Mildura Grand tonight and tomorrow night, with • HAIR EVERYWHERE!: ‘Greece is da word’ will put a new tickets $69 for both the meal and spin on a classic this weekend, with Rob Symes (Silvano) show ($35 for show only).

Cook book ‘perfect present’ HAVING trouble finding the right Christmas present for that family member or friend? Then the staff at Mildura’s Private Hospital have a suggestion – the second edition of their highly successful charity fund-raising cook book.

At a modest $10 a copy, the staff reckon it makes the perfect Kris Kringle purchase, or is a fantastic gift idea for a uni student, or other child leaving home for the first time. The cook book features “great, easy, day-

to-day basic recipes – all favourites of the hospital medical and support staff, as well as friends of Mildura Private Hospital.” Sales of the second book have been pleasingly brisk, with sales to date totalling $3800. The target is $7000.

Look out!

One hundred percent of the profits from the sale of the book are donated to the McGrath Foundation, and the cook book is available from Mildura Private Hospital, Mildura District Hospital Fund and selected doctors clinics across the district.

Christmas shopping spree for our seniors THEY opened the doors, as well as their hearts, at Cheap as Chips recently for what has become an annual Christmas shopping spree for our elderly. Seniors were bussed in from all over the district for a special festive season shopping spree opportunity set aside just for them. A joint initiative of the store and ADRA Sunraysia, according to ADRA Director Darcy Malycha, the shopping set aside for seniors between 6.30pm and 9pm provided a “stress free” retail environment. “This is the sixth year we have done this, and it keeps getting bigger, and more popular, each year,” he said. “Cheap as Chips staff happily volunteer their time to man the store as well as provide a supper for everyone, and a door prize for a lucky shopper. “Santa is there of course to jolly the night along, as the seniors enjoy a special discount on all purchases. “It is just wonderful to see our seniors in their wheelchairs and walking frames being helped with their Christmas selections by the helpful staff. It is real spirit of Christmas stuff!” ADRA coordinated a fleet of buses to ferry seniors shoppers from local nursing homes and retirement villages across Sunraysia including Irymple, Red Cliffs, Wentworth, Merbein and Mildura. “Special thanks to Benetook Bus Hire, Hen-

A group of Melbourne-based botanical artists have set out on a mission to emulate a feat accomplished 150 years ago, following in the footsteps of German surgeon and botanical collector Hermann Beckler – a member of the Burke and Wills expedition. The group’s aim is to collect, preserve, document and paint 120 plant species – the same species Dr Beckler collected during the expedition in 1860 – in and around the Menindee Lakes. It’s a scientific expedition that could take years, with these artists…

Making science visible through art By VINNIE RODI IT’S been 150 years since Robert O’Hara Burke and William John Wills led an expedition of 19 men on a daunting task, with their intent to cross Australia from Melbourne to the Gulf of Carpentaria – a distance of some 3250 kilometres. At the time most of inland Australia was unexplored, and unknown to European settlers, with the group’s mission to discover exactly what the continent held, while also aiming to make history as the

first men to achieve the feat. The south to north leg of the trip was completed without serious incident, before poor leadership, and then bad luck, led to both of the expedition’s leaders perishing on the return journey, with seven men losing their lives, and only one man returning to Melbourne. And while the story of the Burke and Wills expedition is widely known, it’s the tale of one of the expedition’s lesser known members that’s attracted attention by a small group of Melbourne-

based botanical artists. Inspired by the efforts of Dr Hermann Beckler, a German man who acted not only as the expedition’s doctor, but also botanical collector, the group, led by renowned botanical artist Mali Moir, has set out on an expedition of their own. It was in 1860 – with the expedition failing under Burke’s leadership – that Dr Beckler made the decision to leave the group upon reaching Menindee. • Continued Page 59

Three limos! Now that’s stretching it! • From Page 21

• BRIDGING THE GAP: One of Vince Lamattina’s favourite shots of his latest stretch limo – he’s got three of them so far, and plans to add to the fleet to cope with demand. The photo was taken at the Mildura Marina site. INSET - This is how the car looked only a few months ago... Vince worked virtually around the clock to get it ready on time.

“We’re also adding some luxuries to the vehicles, things like a DVD player, big screens and a sub-woofer, and full champagne service.” Vince says that usually, all three of the cars are in use at some stage during the week, mainly at the weekends, with weddings the most prevalent, but the vehicles are also used for transport to parties or other special events, or even for joy-rides of a half-hour or an hour, so a group of friends can cruise the streets having a drink in comfort and safety. He admits the business keeps him busy, especially working virtually full-time running his own mechanical repair workshop in Etiwanda Avenue, but his wife Miranda helps with chauffeur duties, as does family friend Robert Meppem. Vince says he shudders to think what it would have cost him to buy all three cars new... the stretch limos are worth upwards of $150,000 each...and although he saved a lot of money doing all the work himself, if he had paid himself a wage for the time and effort he put in the cost would have been at least half the ‘off the floor’ cost.. He also said he couldn’t have achieved his goals so far with the help of Miranda, his children and Robert, along with his limo washing team of Adrian, Justin and Stephanie. Vince is not quite sure what the next step will be...but says there is a lot of interest in his limos, certainly an increasing demand, and more and more people asking for one that will hold 11 or more people. He says it’s in the pipeline.

Another birthday milestone for Muriel By SUE POOLE

MILDURA’S grand old lady Mrs Muriel Pain has celebrated her 101st birthday. Mrs Pain, who still lives in her own home in San Mateo Avenue, celebrated her amazing milestone with family and friends. She was born and raised in Broken Hill but came to live in Mildura when she married Norman Thomas Pain (known as Tom) where she and her husband lived in a mud brick house and worked on a fruit block “seven miles from Mildura Post Office.� Later they also ran a dairy, and Muriel helped with the milking of the cows and overseeing the daily deliveries. The Pains had five children, all sons – Mervyn, Raymond, Robert, Allan and Bill. All are senior citizens themselves, and all continue to live in the Mildura area. Her sons described her as a “hands-on mum� who was always keeen for a game of cricket in the backyard! She has 14 grandchildren and 31 great grandchildren. Mrs Pain is one of the oldest members of the Working Man’s Club, and goes to the club every Thursday to have dinner and play the pokies! When Mrs Pain turned 100 she had a party with exactly 100 guests, and received messages of congratulation from the Queen, the Prime Minister, and the State Premier. She is a much loved and adored grandmother and great grandmother who has been an inspiration to her large, and extended family.

•  THAT’S OUR MUM!: Muriel Pain at her 100th birthday celebration surrounded by her five sons – Mervyn, Raymond, Robert, Allan and Bill.

Opportunistic grab The man shown in the CCTV image (RIGHT) is wanted for the alleged theft of a digital photo frame from the Centro Plaza on November 21. The frame was left briefly at a Plaza ATM by the owner before being picked up by this person. Information should be phoned through to Mildura Police. Police say they are stepping up their campaign on street offences, and will now adopt a “zero tolerence.” Anyone committing street offences such as public drunkenness, drinking in the street, abusive language or offensive behaviour will be issued with a penalty notice involving a substantial fine, or even worse, a summons to attend Court. Inspector Simon Clemence said that last summer there were a number of “drunken idiots” misbehaving in the CBD, and police zeroed in on them. “Now that we are again moving into warmer weather, we intend to be all over this issue and set the standard early,” he said. “Every police member in Mildura is tuned in to this zero tolerance policy, and are keen to enforce it. The public has the right to walk anywhere without seeing some drunken idiot urinating in a corner

RAID in full swing Operation RAID (Remove All Impaired Drivers) began at 6pm on Friday, November 26, and just 12 days into the operation, 15 people have been processed for drink driving in the Mildura area. Police say they are appalled at these statistics. Acting Sergeant Narelle Kolpin of Mildura Highway Patrol said the figures showed that too many drivers are ignoring the warnings and dangers of drink driving. “Some people think that it’s unlikely they’ll get caught so they take the punt, without even considering that they could seriously hurt or even kill someone,” she said. “And these figures put paid to the idea that they are unlikely to get caught.” Acting Sgt Kolpin said police had conducted a total of 1669 preliminary breath tests in a 10-day period, which gave an average of every 111th driver

tested being processed for drink driving. She said one of the most concerning was a 16-year-old learner driver who was driving at night without the car headlights illuminated. When intercepted and breath-tested, he had a blood alcohol reading of .099. Another man in his forties was intercepted at a randomly selected preliminary breath testing site and recorded a reading of .138. Acting Sgt Kolpin said it was a timely reminder to Mildura and district residents that if they choose to drink and drive, they would be caught. “Operation RAID will set up testing sites anywhere, any time,” she said. “If you are planning to go out, plan ahead. There are many options, from booking a taxi or having a designated driver. “If you’re planning to attend a work Christmas function talk your boss into hiring a bus or book a number of taxis to attend the venue at the end of the night. “If you drink and drive you’re not only risk-

• FOOTNOTE: As a result of public co-operation based on the media articles and CCTV images published previously in the Crime Beat page, a female has been arrested and charged with theft from Dick Smith. Police are following up leads regarding a male  cooffender. Police wish to remind those who think they can shoplift that many shops and shopping complexes within Mildura are now fitted with constantly recording CCTV. So if you shoplift, you will inevitably get ‘court’. As a result of information received from the public, a 35-year-old male was identified from CCTV at the Gateway Tavern spending a large amount of cash believed to be the proceeds from a recent house burglary in San Mateo Ave. The Mildura male, and an associate, were arrested and charged with burglary and theft by the Mildura CIU. Mildura Police would like to thank the public for their prompt response to an article about this burglary that lead to the arrest of two offenders.

These ‘Phillys’ are race fit, and ready to rock! By VINNIE RODI A SIMPLE knock on the door was all it took to bring Sydney-based indie, punk and soul group Philadelphia Grand Jury together in 2001. It’s a journey that started on a quiet Sydney street, when ‘Phillys’ bassist, guitarist and keyboard player Joel ‘MC Bad Genius’ Beeson “stumbled” across future partner in crime – Simon ‘Berkfinger’ Berckelman. “I was walking down the street when I heard this voice coming from one of the houses,” Joel said. “My immediate thought was ‘wow, whoever this guy is he can sing.’” The voice in question belonged to Simon, who was staying at his grandmother’s house in Sydney while working on his music. “I built up the courage to knock on the door, and out came Berkfinger (Simon),” Joel said. “You’d think the next part of the story would be this weird first meeting, but it wasn’t, we just hit it off. “I told him that I was a budding musician, like him, and asked if he wanted to ‘jam’. “I think he was just glad I wasn’t one of the neighbours asking him to keep it down.” The rest, as they say, is history, with Philadelphia Grand Jury now one of the hottest acts in the country. “Our career to date has been a dream come true, and it’s something that we’re still working hard to make a success,” Joel says. The group has since gone on to build a reputation as being one of the best live acts in Australia, with their high-energy performances capturing thousands of fans. It’s a trend they will look to reinforce further when they take the Sandbar stage tomorrow night from 8pm as part of their ‘Save Our Town’ tour. Tickets from the Sandbar are $12 pre-sale, or $15 at the door.

Making science visible through art • From Page 55 It was a decision that ultimately saved Beckler’s life, with the surgeon and botanic enthusiast spending three months collecting flora specimens some 25 kilometres around Menindee Lakes. In that time he managed to collect and catalogue more than 120 species, providing future Australians with a better understanding of the area’s wild flora. It’s information the National Herbarium of Victoria has referred to for 150 years, with Mali’s group intent of continuing Beckler’s work. All Friends of the Royal Botanical Gardens in Melbourne, the group’s journey, which they have entitled ‘Beckler’s Botanical Bounty: The Flora of Menindee – 150th commemorative collection,’ aims to not only celebrate a piece of Australian history, but further enhance the nation’s understanding of wild flora growing in and around the Menindee Lakes. The group’s aim is to collect, preserve, document and paint some of the same species Beckler collected in 1860 – using the information still in the hands of the National Herbarium in Melbourne to achieve their goal. It’s a trip that Mali, who is a botanical artist, and teacher at the Botanical Gardens, said was inspired by one of her students, a real Burke and Wills fan. “It’s a trip that was originally suggested by Dr Beverly Woods, who attends my botanical art class at the Gardens,” she said. “She had the idea to go to Menindee and paint wildflowers, and as a scientific illustrator I immediately starting searching for scientific relevance to the trip, and decided to research Dr Beckler’s role in the group. “The more research I did, the more fascinated I became.” Further research led to Mali discovering Beckler’s extensive donation to the National Herbarium. “As we were planning on collecting samples for paintings, I then thought that we could also collect

• BEAUTIFUL SETTING: Members of the Beckler’s Botanical Bounty expedition inspect plant specimens near Menindee Lakes, ABOVE, comparing them to a list made by German surgeon Hermann Beckler during the Burke and Wills expedition 150 years ago. The group’s aim is to collect and catalouge all 120 species on the list, with the group’s leader Mali Moir in action BELOW. They will then paint the specimens, LEFT, and eventually forward the collection to the National Herbarium in Victoria.

for the National Herbarium in Melbourne, and at the same time forward duplicate specimens to the New South Wales Herbarium,” she said. “Our aim is to collect the same species of plants that Beckler collected – in almost the exact same location – painting and illustrating species as we find them.” Mali said that upon the group’s arrival in Menindee last October, their initial challenge had been deciding which specimens to paint first. “The field was in full bloom,” she said.

“We stayed for three hours discovering more species, and the more we looked the more we found, including daisies, salt bushes and blue bushes in full colour.” Mali said the group had spent

five days in Menindee – two days searching, collecting and identifying, and three days performing initial paintings and illustrations. “So far we’ve found a total of 15 plants (which the group is now in the process of painting in Melbourne), out of a list of 120.” Mali said she considered collecting plants for scientific research “important,” with illustrations vital in demonstrating what plants look like fresh and in full colour. “Botanical art is a detailed and accurate job, especially for the purpose of scientific identification,” she said. “It involves awareness, and helps educate the general public to the importance of science and research through its sheer beauty. “I’ve lived by the same motto and philosophy for 20 years now – that artists make science visible, and this trip is just an extension of that motto.” Mali said that while this first visit was an “exploratory trip,” plans were already in the works to return to Menindee next October to continue the search. “While we’ve collected several specimens already, this trip is designed to lay the foundations for possibly a larger work party next year,” she said. “It’s an expedition that has so far been an amazing eye-opener, we’ve been able to visit and explore almost the exact area Dr Beckler did, and, using his list of specimens, collect and draw the same species.” Mali said that the visit had also provided an opportunity to educate locals about botanical painting, with the group using the local school as a base of operations. “We held a workshop while we were there, and the support we’ve received has been truly amazing,” she said. Mali said the group will donate the plant collection – once completed – to the National Herbarium, where it will stand as a commemorative collection to Beckler’s original findings. “It’s a goal we’re all aiming for, and we’re currently in the process of securing funding to make a return trip next year,” she said. “It may take several years to find, catalogue and paint all 120 species on Beckler’s list, but we’re determined to do just that.”

Dean Finch

Taking it to the next level

DEAN Finch’s V8 Jetsprint Superboat, Loose Cannon, is acknowledged as the quickest boat ever produced in the sport. At its heart beats a 475 cubic inch V8 powerplant fed by twin turbo chargers. The result is a motor that produces well over 1600 horsepower, insane amounts of torque, and powers a hull weighing just 700kg, including the motor! It can accelerate from zero to 130km/h in about a second and inflicts about two-anda-half times the force of gravity (2.5gs) on the driver and navigator when accelerating in a straight line. Through the tighter corners it pulls about six times the force of gravity (6gs). While engine problems put paid to Dean’s 2010 race season after the powerplant ingested a ‘lungfull’ of water at the opening round, the two appearances he did make this year showed the boat is head-andshoulders above the competition. And the scary thing (for his opposition) is Dean has yet to unlock the full potential of his boat. At the final round of the series, in which he posted the quickest time by a significant margin by jetsprint standards, Dean’s onboard data logger showed he averaged about 71 percent throttle. Most of his competition averaged close to 100 percent. Dean’s boat broke new ground in Australian jetsprint racing as the first turbo-charged powerplant in the Superboat class. While forced induction is par for the course at the top of the sport, the majority of boats are supercharged. Dean proved turbo charging could not only be built into one of these vessels, it could outperform the traditional supercharged boats. Another team has since followed Dean’s lead and managed to get a turbo-charged boat onto the water towards the end of the season, but was nowhere near the Sunraysia driver’s pace.

Imports dominate ‘best car’ awards By TERRY MARTIN

title since winning in the first two years (2000 and 2001) with the VX series – the billion-dollar VE has never struck a gong – while Falcon has taken the top award four times (2002-2004, 2008) and Aurion three (200607, 2009). Mitsubishi’s ill-fated 380 also won gold in 2005. Best Cars chief judge and RAASA technical services manager Mark Borlace described the Superb as “probably a surprise winner to a lot of people” but insisted the award was well deserved. “In this traditional class dominated by Australianmade cars, the combination of

NO AUSTRALIAN-MADE vehicles have made it onto the 2010 ‘Australia’s best cars’ winners list, with the coveted motoring association awards this year favouring imported vehicles – most of them diesels – across all 15 categories, including the lowvolume Superb large car from Volkswagen’s Czech brand Skoda, PICTURED. In a blow to the local car manufacturing industry, the judges determined the niche Superb 125 TDI Ambition station wagon as ‘Australia’s best large car’, scoring it 758 points across the program’s broad criteria, with the 118 TSI variant coming in second on 748 points. Ford’s FG Falcon XR6 was back in third place on 738, while last year’s winner, Toyota’s Aurion AT-X, was relegated to fourth with 705 points. Despite a significant Series II upgrade this year which included E85 ethanol capability, Holden’s VE Commodore sedan and Sportwagon – Australia’s most popular model line and the runaway large-car market leader – was not even among the finalists, with both SV6 and Omega variants failing to reach 700 points. Other vehicles tested in the large-car category were the Nissan Maxima, Honda Accord, Citroen C5, Hyundai Grandeur and Chrysler 300C. This is the first time in the event’s 11-year history that an Australian-built car has failed to win the large (or family) car category. Holden has not claimed the

European engine technology in a well-packaged vehicle with a wagon option has upset this market and is a well-deserved winner,” he said. In accepting the award at a presentation in Sydney this week, Skoda Australia head Matthew Wiesner said the company had “broken the stranglehold on the large-car segment”, although this overlooks the fact that the Superb’s sales volume is still only a fraction that of the Australian-built cars. The awards program assesses vehicles across 19 areas bracketed into three main sections: value for money, design and function, and on-road performance. The finalists are road tested during a week of assessment before category winners are determined.

FORGET the near invisible facelift, all-new diesel transplant, different cabin trim, and downward movement of some key options in the revised Mini. Yes, all add something fresh and – in the case of the engine – worthwhile to the ownership experience. But it is the redesigned side indicators that speak volumes both about what the 2011 R5X LCI (for Life Cycle Impulse – thank you for that, Germany) is all about, and why the baby BMW is in a different class compared to rival Mini wannabes. The blurb about the side blinker unit is understated: “The glass cover now features concentric circles underlining the iconography of the indicators.” On paper it is easy to miss that, but in the metal, those “concentric circles” are an arresting design detail that – for this particular beholder anyway – captures the essence of the original British Motor Corporation’s AD015 Mini of 1959. It is a delicious morsel of nostalgia that connects new with old, taking us back to that bygone era. The way the orange globe within the lens floats there further evokes such feelings. Since the new Mini does not have an original design bone in its body, BMW ought to throw out that ugly oversized speedo and concentrate more on honing such beautiful classic detailing. Fiat showed the way with the masterful 500, and it is a far cry from the blundering approximation of the current VW New Beetle and embarrassing Ford Thunderbird of a decade ago. Obviously, the new indicator is also a manipulative move by BMW to reinforce the existing Mini’s timeless

heritage in the face of the Audi A1 and Citroen DS3 onslaught – a pair that forgo icon plundering (except for the French car’s name – shame on you, Citroen) for a welcome dose of modernity. But none of the competition quite drives like the Mini. While they might have similarly darty steering, the BMW feels more planted and composed, more go-kart like (to borrow the company’s own description) that every single Mini past and present share. The British-built car feels expensively engineered

Anyway, on to the biggest change, the diesel: Out goes the old PSA-derived 1.6litre diesel (80kW/240Nm, six-speed transaxles), for an all-new BMW-built unit related to the 2.0-litre found in everything (including alphanumerical) numbered between One and Five. This is the first transverse application for a BMW engine we understand, and not the last, as a family of new frontdrivers wearing the roundel is on its way, apparently – hence the change for Mini. The changes the BMW

Improved diesel performance and refinement, some lovely new detailing, same old driveability and fun that are second to none. Room for improvement

and not related to anything else on the road. The A1 (VW Polo), DS3 (C3/Pug 207) and 500 (Panda, Ford Ka) do. Maybe it is their torsion beam back ends, or maybe it’s the fact that the Mini is truly bespoke. It’s also become ubiquitous – and will be more so as BMW continues to stretch (to breaking point?) the definition and meaning of Mini.

diesel brings to the Mini D justifies the $1000 price hike in our books – much greater low-down torque that is spread across the rev range for better acceleration and response. It seems quieter and smoother to boot as you give it the boot, too. We reckon the diesel has that instantaneous torque that the otherwise all-overin-a-flash A-series lump in the old BMC Minis delivered,

connecting the generations a little more – except that today’s car keeps on piling on the thrust, in a delightfully addictive sort of way. That the chassis is more than able to cope with the torrent of torque further heightens the fun. We’d certainly have one. But this is offset by the greater weight of the oil swiller over the front wheels, which takes some of the zig and zag out of the handling. You would only really ascertain this if you a. already drive a petrolpowered R56 (hatch) Mini or b. you jumped straight out of the diesel and into the regular (unblown) Cooper. The latter underwent a small raft of upgrades last March, with slightly more power (up just 2kW) and minor efficiency gains. Really, after the Mini D experience, this isn’t enough, especially for the prices BMW demands. The car underneath feels far worthier than what the sweet and revvy but ultimately undernourished 90kW 1.6L petrol can provide. Yet get it on a roll, and the undiluted feel and response from the helm makes it an absolute driver’s dream, and ultimately even more enjoyable than the diesel.

are optional at this end of the Mini spectrum) is a little on the firm and vocal side, although not unpleasantly so. However, overshadowing both for pleasure and upped pulses is the fast, slick, and agile Cooper S. Arguably the pick of the whole Cooper range (including the rorty JCW John Cooper Works), it injects real racy sports car flavour to proceedings, but without the raw, at times hard edge of the appreciably quicker JCW cars. Other observations: the longer-wheelbase Clubman (R55) models are smoother, slightly less darty and probably the better everyday

driving proposition, unless ultimate Mad Mouse antics are the order of the day, in which case stick with the hatch (and forget the somewhat leaden-bycomparison R57 Cabrio). We’d love to see the new diesel in the Clubman, mind. What else? The newcomers’ darker trim on the dash and steering wheel take away some of the garishness that mar the Mini, although that uselessly oversized speedo is now a dated eyesore. We appreciate the slightly more fathomable switchgear, and we continue to marvel at the Teutonic solidity of a car built in Cowley, England.

Finally, BMW provided a motorkhana test track across a variety of varying (often slippery) surfaces, to highlight just how much of a driver’s car the Mini continues to be. In that context the Post Modern Brick is still a one-of-akind proposition, reminding us of just how thoroughly engineered as a driver’s car the current car really is. So, diesel aside, the changes are pretty, ahem, minor. The cabin is still twee; the thick and upright pillars and mirrors still make too much wind noise; the ride on the larger-wheeled Minis can still feel a tad un-comfy; the options (though cheaper

E G N E a L d E n L fi G A o t N H E a C L d n L R fi E A o T t T H E C B R E T T BE DEAL!

in some cases) are still exxy; and the packaging compromises – tight back seat, joke boot, stupid lefthand drive suitable-only Clubman suicide door, divided rear vision – remain. But this car can still put a smile on your face in the way the competition simply cannot. And the latest iteration seems truer to its past (in details large and tiny) than we can expect any retro car to be. Those concentric circles in the indicators are just another lovely reminder of that. We look forward to the ongoing Mini evolution. © GoAutoMedia 2010

In the run up to the holiday week, and with Mercury turning retrograde, there is a lot to get organized. Make sure you have enough money to last you through the season. Your sex life is also in focus. As Mars moves into this zone on Tuesday, you may find yourself becoming more physically passionate more often. Wednesday may coincide with a meeting that could be the start of a rather intense relationship. Be ready!

This is a time of synthesis and integrating the various factors in your life into a workable whole. Your lifestyle is in focus, including work and health. Mars moves into this zone on Tuesday and stirs things up. You can expect changes at work, which may include new schedules, new staff, and perhaps a new boss. Where your health is concerned, you may become very enthusiastic about getting into shape. Overcome temptation!

The focus on your creative zone means it’s time to explore the full range of your talent. Mars moves into Capricorn, which will encourage you to think about starting your own business.

The more you can achieve now, the easier life will be over the weeks ahead. With a focus on your travel zone, it’s very possible that you’re thinking of going away for Christmas. You may even decide to take some of your family members with you. It doesn’t help to get stuck in a rut, and it certainly doesn’t help your relationship. Dare to be different and aim for the experience of a lifetime. Watch out for Mercury retrograde on Friday.

The focus is on home and family affairs. If you need to sort out any matters that require negotiation, it should be a lot easier now. You may also be in more of a mood to make changes to your house, or buy window treatments or furnishings to spruce your place up. With so many family occasions coming up, get moving on any of the above or finish those last-minute DIY projects.

CROSSWORD

The focus on the sign of Capricorn and your career zone is good news. It means you’re ready to take it to the limit. Mars moves into Capricorn on Tuesday, which means you’re going to become very efficient and much more practical than usual. This is the season of goodwill, socializing, and holidays, and there is a promise of passion midweek. Mercury turns retrograde on Friday, so get your presents and cards posted sooner rather than later.

Uranus, the planet of revolution, is in Pisces and stirring you up in unexpected ways. You continue to meet people unexpectedly and discover that there can be an amazing chemistry between strangers. This is a chance for you to meet new people who are very different from those you usually hang out with. A major focus on Capricorn is great for new relationships and the conversations that can lead to new friendships.

1. Lasso 4. Frosted (cake) 6. Placard 7. Scratch 8. Deeply desired 12. Child-minding 16. Moves swiftly 17. Tree-dwarfing art 18. Reside 19. Be present at

If there’s a club or group that you’re particularly keen to join, this would be the time to do it. The holiday season is getting into gear, making this a great time to network. If you can’t get out for some reason, you can connect online and still get great results. But do watch out for the possibility of mixed signals. Mercury turns retrograde on Friday, which could confuse matters. Make sure your intentions are crystal clear.

You may come up with a number of interesting ways to spend your money, including Christmas shopping, if you haven’t yet started. Mars moves into in Capricorn, which means this is the perfect time to become more financially proactive in whatever way is appropriate. Tuesday is positive in that you may find a lucrative deal. In order to take advantage of it, you will need to listen to your intuition. Mercury turns retrograde, so keep all receipts in case you need to take anything back.

You may get a lucrative offer out of the blue, but you might have to move out of your comfort zone to take advantage of it. At least the Sun is still in Sagittarius and continuing to light up the social sector of your chart. It brings you plenty of reasons to get out and meet new people. Mercury turns retrograde on Friday, so be prepared for double trouble. It’s best if you can mail your cards and gifts early.

As Mercury is your romance planet and turns retrograde on Friday, you should be ready to meet with a past lover. You may find the flame of love still burns hot. You also have many opportunities in business. Start your own company, get a promotion, ask for a raise, and see what happens. But do it earlier rather than later in the week. After the weekend it would be better to bide your time

Boxing’s Boy Wonder! • From Page 74 It wasn’t long before Darcy ran out of people to fight... and he wasn’t yet 17. One of the few problems was that he was restricted to the fightmad Maitland and Newcastle areas because of his apprenticeship...old Billy was a mad keen Salvo, frowned on the boxing game, and wouldn’t give the lad any time off for training or fights. That all changed threeand-a-half years into his apprenticeship when Darcy, with legal help (not to mention a monetary payout to Billy Ford) was successful in being released from his contract. He was now a full-time professional fighter, and went at it with a will. It wasn’t long before Darcy was the main drawcard on the fight programs of NSW, and he demolished a series of quality opponents, mostly by knockout or TKO. A lot of fights ended when the ‘seconds’ of Darcy’s opponent simply threw in the towel, not wanting their boxer to receive further punishment. By the time he was matched against the Maitland champion Billy Hannan, Darcy’s reputation had stretched the length and breadth of Australia, but even with his unblemished record, he didn’t have many backers when he came up against the tough fellow Aussie who had just demolished the best fighters in New Zealand. The fight ended in the 18th round when Darcy lifted Hannan off his feet with a knock-

out punch, claiming a prize of 75 pounds...a fortune at the time. It was enough to set the Darcy family up in a new house. By the time he was 18, Darcy had demolished the best fighters in Australia, and promoters started bringing in polished American fighters to take him on. Darcy destroyed

with a vicious right cross. Darcy was after a re-match with Smith, who by this time was the world middleweight champion, and a fighter who had taken on the best boxers in the world to win the title. Darcy got his wish on Easter Monday, 1915, and there wasn’t a spare seat in the 15,000 seat stadium.

them one by one, with the only early ‘blemish’ on his career being a controversial loss to the polished Jeff Smith. Darcy claimed a low blow, which the referee ignored, despite loud protests from Darcy’s corner, and when his trainer threw down his towel in disgust, the ref took it to mean that Darcy had had enough, and awarded the fight to Smith. Darcy’s fights, by now in Newcastle, Maitland, Brisbane and Sydney, continued to draw packed houses. There were 15,000 in the stadium when Darcy took on the Belgium international Henri Demlin. Darcy toyed with him for five rounds before ending the fight

Again, Smith was cautioned for low blows...Darcy was angry, and ended the fight in the second round with a punishing series of body punches to the world champ. Boxing writers say Smith never had an answer to the battering he received at the hands of Darcy. Swanwick wrote; “He would rather have fought a tiger than stay in the ring with Les Darcy when Darcy had the killer glint in his eyes.” With the advent of the First World War, Darcy went into military cadet camp, attached to the Light Horse regiment. When his training was over he came back to Sydney to prepare for another tough fight, against a bloke called ‘The

He had cleaned up the best boxers in the United States and Europe, and Darcy was his next target. Among the boxers ring-side were half a dozen current and former world champions,not to mention a handful of international boxing promoters. Everyone wanted to see this fight. McGoorty was known for his vicious left hook, his ‘weapon’ of choice, and he had used it to great effect, sending many an opponent to the canvas for the count. When he saw an opening in his fight with Darcy, McGoorty loaded up and delivered what would normally be a knockout punch. Hit flush on the chin, the boy from Maitland stepped back, shook his head and smiled, and kept boxing as though nothing had happened. These were the two best middleweights in the world. Neither had been knocked out. The stadium was roaring as the two went head to head, blow for blow. Then Darcy poured on the power, and by the 14th round McGoorty had taken such a battering he was almost out on his feet. By Round 15 McGoorty had been knocked down four times, bravely getting to his feet each time. But by then even the police had had enough, and moved in to stop the fight as the referree crowned Darcy the winner.

• ‘THE SMILING ASSASSIN:’ Les Darcy’s boyish good looks (ABOVE) fooled many opponents, who thought he might be a pushover. But the kid who worked as a blacksmith’s assistant for three years from age 14 was as tough as nails, lean and mean, with sledgehammer-like blows. His first 17 fights, and the last 22 on end, were among his 46 victories. Darcy (TOP RIGHT) was always smartly dressed, ever polite and respectful. CENTRE shows an original pass-out to one of Darcy’s 1917 fights. RIGHT - Darcy shapes up playfully to the young American starlet Jane Lee during his visit to New York, and pictured at work in his blacksmith days...the reason for his muscular body and toughness. The bloke holding the horse is Frank Loughrey, another tough boxer, and one of the few who went the full 20 rounds with Darcy, who won that 1915 fight on points.

Mildura Weekly - 10/12/10

The piece of treasured boxing memoribilia arrived by courier...and who better to go to than Mildura boxing legend Kevin Hogarth. Behind the gift is a tale that is probably unparalleled in Australian, if not world, sporting history. It’s the story of...

The boy who took on the world! Special report by ALAN ERSKINE KEVIN Hogarth rates Australia’s Les Darcy (ABOVE) as the best boxer, pound for pound, - EVER - in the world. And not many would doubt our Olympic Bronze Medallist’s opinion, having had a lifetime’s association with the sport...with Darcy being at the top of his list of sporting heroes. That’s why he was as pleased as punch (so to speak) when a special package arrived by courier this week - a large framed photograph of the former world champion, with a bit of Darcy’s background and boxing history included. It came from former boxer and now historian and author Ray Swanwick of Sydney, who has been in regular contact with Hogarth over the years since he won his Bronze medal at the 1956 Melbourne Olympics. And as an added bonus, included in the package were original admission tickets and a pass-out to the famed Olympia Sports Arena in Newtown, Sydney, where Darcy fought most of his fights, a brochure from a musical-drama documentary in Sydney dedicated to Darcy’s life, and photographs of two of the places the famous boxer stayed when he went to the United States to fight. The items go back about 100 years.

sparring sessions with teenagers and young men in the stables around Maitland. Darcy loved his ‘smithy’ work, but loved boxing better, and wanted to make a career out of it, mainly to get money to give to his parents. He was never without an old pair of boxing gloves that he bought second-hand in his first few weeks of work. A Maitland fight enthusiast was one of the first to recognise Darcy’s potential, and matched him against a 28-year-old by the name of Guv’nor Balsa, who was a fighter of some repute in the area. Darcy, despite being just into his teen years, was happy to oblige. They went toe to toe for 10 rounds, with the referee calling it a draw. Both corners agreed on another round to decide the winner, and when the dust had settled, young Darcy had his first ‘real’ win, and 15 shillings in his pocket.

Collector’s items They are collector’s items, joining Kevin’s collection of boxing memoribilia that incvludes more than 700 magazines, books, medals and programs, tournament singlets and his Olympic jacket and Bronze Medal, and the Golden Gloves he won at the height of his career. It would be impossible to put a price on the collection, certainly not the Les Darcy additions, which are highly sought-after items, especially in the United States. It is highly likely that the half life-size image of Darcy will be put on display in the Mildura Working Man’s Club, where Kevin is a long-time member and club director. The book on Darcy, written by Swanwick, doesn’t pull any punches. A bookseller at the time he wrote the book in 1994, Swanwick says the life of Darcy had always fascinated him, and he wanted to set the record straight on some of the inaccuracies - and override the sentiment that went hand in hand with the Darcy story. The 114-page A4-size paperback, complete with

• TREASURE: Mildura Olympic boxing Bronze Medallist and boxing historian Kevin Hogarth (above), was surprised - and delighted - to receive some pieces of treasured boxing memoribilia by courier last week. They included the poster-size framed print of the famous Les Darcy, along with highlights of his career, original tickets to some of Darcy’s fights 100 years ago, and a pamphlet from a theatre production about Darcy’s life, TOP RIGHT. some historical photographs never before seen by boxing enthusiasts, tells of an intelligent and tough young kid born in Stradbroke, NSW, in 1895, and raised mainly in the Oakhampton region near

Maitland. Darcy left school at the age of 12, and worked at various jobs, including milking cows and digging potatoes, before signing on as an apprentice blacksmith for five

years with Billy Ford in East Maitland. He was 14, but was so well-developed because of his hard work that he looked more like an 18-year-old, and had had a lot of ‘friendly’

Next big fight His next fight was against the more experienced Sid Pascoe, well trained up by his father, and an experienced boxer. Darcy was 15, stood 5ft 5ins in bare feet, and tipped the scales at nine stone. The fight attracted a huge crowd, but not many expected the teenager to fight his way out of this one. Darcy boxed his way through the first round with

ease, clearly winning the round. Pascoe’s dad advised his son to go for a knockout punch. He came out swinging, but Darcy calmly picked a hole in the guard, and landed an uppercut that lifted Pascoe off his feet, putting him on his back for a 10-second count. By this stage, boxing writers were starting to take notice of the new kid on the block, especially when they found out he played the violin in his spare time, gave all his winnings to his mother, and went to dance classes to improve his footwork. He was a promoter’s dream... and there was no questioning his toughness, dedication or ability. But fight followers say that what set the youngster apart was his attitude. He always had a smile on his face, was also courteous to his peers and elders, never had a bad word to say about anyone, and had plenty of time for his family, friends, and a growing legion of fans. His boyish good looks and infectious smile fooled a lot of people, but he was as tough as nails, took punishment with a blink and a smile, had outstanding balance, footwork and co-ordination, no doubt the result of his dancing, combined with an incredible reach and hammer-like punching power. • Continued Page 73

Swedes on track this time A SECOND attempt will be made to get two young Swedish riders onto Mildura’s Olympic Park Speedway this Sunday night, when the Mildura Motorcycle Club attempts to re-run its postponed meet from two weeks ago. Club officials are hoping recent rains over the last fortnight will abate and allow the second meeting to be held. The Swedish pair – Pontus Apsgren and Ricky Kling – were due to have their next ride in Queensland, but have been able to stay in Mildura – as guests of the Sedgmen family – to fulfil their duties in the A-grade solo division. It’s a division that will include both Sedgmen brothers, Ryan and Justin, the in-form Brenton Barnfield, and fellow local Tom Hedley. The four Mildura boys can hold their own in any company, so Mildura patrons will be keen to see how they go against additional first-class opposition. This grade of racing should prove exciting, as the visitors – who are accomplished riders – come to terms with the tight corners of Olympic Park. Patrons are again expecting big things from the newest contingent of local riders, with the pace to be furious from start to finish. As usual the Mildura Sidecar competition will be savage, especially as last week’s field will be bolstered by the addition of Warren Monson and Deven Gates. Monson missed last week’s event due to Australian Superbike duties, where he acted as race mechanic for all three Waters brothers (Josh, Brodie and Nick) during a

Footy world mourns John James • From Page 77 James was picked in the Victorian team in 1955, and was a fixture in the State side for six of the next seven years, playing 15 games. Champion ruckman John Nicholls, in his biography ‘Big Nick,’ wrote of James: “His actions reminded me of a cat, because he could take freakish marks by twisting is body in the air. In ground play he twisted and weaved, sometimes running backwards out of packs, and he was hard to tackle because of his great strength.” James was one of his side’s best players in the Grand Final loss to Essendon in 1962, the year before he retired, and

made the move to Robinvale. He often reminisced with friends about his days with the Blues, playing alongside or against the likes of Nicholls, Silvani, Ron Barrassi, Teddy Whitten, Bluey Shelton, Polly Farmer and Kevin Murray. He was Murray’s room mate whenever they went away on State games, and he says they were great days because you got to know other players from other clubs. John also played alongside another great in Peter Webster, who went on to coach Merbein with great success. At the time of his death he was still keeping in touch with many of these friends and foes, and as a member of

Carton’s 200 club, has been a regular and welcome guest at special functions, and various AFL reunions. Robinvale always knew it was lucky to get the Carlton champion, and he repaid their faith many times over. He choose the Eagles over offers from Wangaratta and Colac, took the Eagles to the finals in his first year, and won the premiership in his second year, and again two years later. James and his family overcame the tragedy of losing a daughter to drowning while in Robinvale, and in more recent years recovered from a slight stroke, and two knee replacements.

Locals vie for national call-up • From Page 77 “Cara will certainly be motivated to go the next step this time around, and she’s been working extremely hard with her local, State, and national coaches to achieve that goal,” Vicki said. For Brad Mason, selection in 2011 will see him become a three-time Australian representative, something never before achieved by an Academy athlete. “Brad, without a doubt, has been the Academy’s most successful athlete in recent times,” Vicki said. “His dedication to the sport, and the amount of work he puts in, is a testament to him. “It’s also something that’s helped motivate others in the program, who have been able to see first-hand the pathways available.” Vicki also had high praise for Ashby Smith, saying the youngster had a great chance of being selected. “In my opinion he’s one of, if not the best setter this region has ever produced,” she said. “I think all of our athletes will do well if they

perform at their best, and even if they aren’t selected, the experience itself will be highly beneficial.” All five athletes will head to their respective selection camps this Sunday, returning to Mildura in a week’s time.

boys proving solid performers in the past. Corey Gates and Adon Pearce had to wait two extra weeks for their Olympic Park debut, but the breeding is such that Corey will not be troubled either by the wait, or the competition. The Quads section has also been entertaining over the last two seasons, with Olympic Park fans now being treated to some fine performances as riders fine-tune suspension and engines to meet the anti-clockwise way of the track. Three generations of the Mills family are engaged in the fourwheeled division, and will mix it

hard amongst the eight quads in the field. The Quads guys will ride handicap events all night, with the feature a ‘black flag’ race. The format of the ‘black flag’ race will see the rider at rear of field after a set amount of laps eliminated, with the race to continue until only one rider remains. Olympic Park gates will open from 5pm, with a junior meeting to start from 6.15pm following senior practice. The senior meeting will commence at 7.30pm, with catering provided, and more information available by contacting 0419 174 225.

Former Aussie Rules star Nathan Thompson is a man who at 196cm looks untouchable. He’s fit, strong, and looks like a bloke on top of the world. And while that may be true now, it wasn’t the case six years ago, when Thompson was battling what he describes as “a silent killer” – depression. The former AFL champion was in Mildura last week to address local table grape growers about the illness, recounting his story…

Surviving dark times FORMER Australian Football League star Nathan Thompson can clearly remember the moment when depression almost cost him not just his career – but his life. Addressing members of the Sunraysia Table Grape Growers Association at the Midway Centre last Sunday, Thompson – who is an ambassador for beyondblue (Australia’s leading initiative on depression) – was special guest at the group’s annual Christmas party. The room of close to 240 sat attentive as Thompson, who battled

“There were times when I would run onto a football field, and wish with everything I had that I’d pull a hamstring, or break my leg… anything so that I wouldn’t have to play and deal with the pressures of AFL footy.” – Nathan Thompson, former AFL player. depression for the majority of his career, retold the story of how he reached breaking point. The year was 2004, and the then Hawthorn Football Club vicecaptain was preparing for a game. “I remember just sitting there, and not being able to move, not being able to think,” he told the crowd. “And that’s when I suffered a complete breakdown, I just broke into tears, and wanted then

“It allowed me to get the help I needed,” he said. “And took a big weight off my shoulders. “What amazed me the most was the overwhelming support I received from not just my family, friends, and the football club, but the wider community.” Thompson said that after his admission he then got the help he needed, and went on to enjoy the best two years of his career at the North Melbourne Football Club. “I felt like I needed a fresh start,” he said. “I was on medication, I was feeling better, and things were finally starting to turn around.” It’s a story Thompson hopes will help raise awareness amongst others, promoting the message that depression can strike anyone, anywhere. “I’m not going to stand up here and tell you how to farm, because I wouldn’t have a clue,” he told the crowd. “What I can tell you is that if times are tough, and you are feeling a certain way, then the worse thing you can do is keep those feelings to yourself. “Talk to your families, talk to your mates, and most importantly see your doctor.” Sunraysia Table Grape Growers Association president, John Argiro, said Thompson’s talk had hit the mark amongst growers. “It was absolutely fantastic,” he

said. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many people just sit and listen to one man’s story. “The messages he had are all very relevant for local growers at the moment, and I’ve heard nothing but positive comments from those who were there.” Anyone suffering symptoms of depression, or who simply wants to find out more information, can visit beyondblue’s website www. beyondblue.org.au, or contact 1300 224 636.

Footy world mourns loss of John James

• FLEET OF FOOT: In typical fashion, and with socks down a la Sergio Silvani style, John James heads from the back line in full attack mode for his beloved Blues.

THE football world is in mourning this week at the loss of one of the game’s all-time greats – Brownlow medallist John James. Robinvale’s favourite son passed away at the age of 76 from the aftereffects of a stroke, suffered last week at his home. A three-time winner of Carlton’s best and fairest, James injected new life into the Sunraysia Football League when he took over the reins of Robinvale in the early 1960’s. Former team-mate, businessman and long-time councillor for Robinvale, John Katis, this week remembered a gentleman, on and off the field. “He was highly regarded as a teacher, as a footballer, as a coach and mentor, and as a family man,” John said. “News of his stroke and death has been a shock to this close-knit community. He was a fantastic bloke who always had time for people. He wasn’t one to big-note about his sporting deeds of the past, and was a brilliant motivator for the Eagles.” John said that James had been thrilled with Robinvale’s premiership of 2010 after the disappointments of runner-up positions for the previous two years. “He is a dead-set legend in the

Sunraysia’s best vie for Australian selection THE Sunraysia Academy of Sport’s Dunning Classic Homes Volleyball Program has received a major boost this week, with three of its coaches, and five athletes, invited to attend the Australian Volleyball Federation’s 2010 National Junior Men and Women’s selection training camps. The coaches in question include father and son combination Allan and Brad Hassell, and the Academy’s new Horsham Volleyball Program head David Berry.

• Ashby Smith Allan will travel to Moe to take part in the National Junior Women’s camp, while Brad and David will head to Bendigo for the Junior Men’s camp. In addition to the large contingent of local coaches, five athletes will also have the chance to attend the camp, with Cara Meyer, Amy Mann, Brad Mason, Adrian Fox and Ashby Smith all selected. Sunraysia’s significant

inclusion in both camps is a big win according to Sunraysia Academy of Sport co-ordinator Vicki Telfer, who said the inclusion of the group’s coaches was a particular highlight. “What most people don’t know is that only three coaches from each State are nominated to attend these camps,” she said. “So for all three of Victoria’s nominations to come from Sunraysia is significant, and probably highlights how far our Volleyball Academy has come in recent years, and how it’s regarded at the highest level.” Vicki said all local volleyball academy participants were set to benefit from Allan, Brad and David’s selection. “All three of these coaches will have the chance to learn the most up-to-date coaching techniques and modules, which they can then implement here in Sunraysia,” she said. “It’s certainly a win-win for everyone involved in the local volleyball scene, and for our younger volleyball athletes.” Vicki said the number of athletes selected to train for national spots was also a great achievement. “Each of these athletes – with the exception of Brad Mason – will be attending their second consecutive national camp,” she said. “Again it’s a great indication of how successful our

Robinvale area,” John said. “And not just here…I am sure there are many former players with Carlton, and many supporters, who will remember John with great fondness, and I am sure this will be reflected at his funeral.” John James played a total of 195 games for the Blues, after making his debut in 1953. He was recruited from St Patrick’s College in Ballarat as a forward, but after managing just eight goals and 43 behinds in his first year, was ‘banished’ to the back line, where he blossomed into one of the best defenders in the league. At 5ft 8 ½ inches tall and tipping the scales at 12 stone, James was one of the smallest players ever to pull on the boots in the Victorian Football League. He was also one of the most talented, and when his Melbourne career was over, he was quickly snapped up by Robinvale. John and his wife Maureen and family made that close-knit fruit growing community the family home, raising three boys and three girls, and giving freely to the town through a 35-year teaching career and as a fruit grower, as well as making his mark in sport. In an interview with the Mildura Weekly three years ago, James said he got his start thanks to college

footy in Ballarat. He barracked for Collingwood, but it was the Tigers and the Blues who sent their scouts to the mining city to see this talented footballer. James normally played at centre-half-back, but in one game they changed him from centrehalf-forward to full forward, where he kicked a staggering 35 goals in one game. Brian Gleeson, another Carlton great, was also in the team, which kicked the record score of 48.35 (323) that day. Carlton snapped him up, and so began a career that put him among the greatest-ever players ever to pull on a boot with the Blues, saw him ‘destroy’ taller and more fancie opponents, and which won him the role on a half-back flank in Carlton’s Team of The Century. He played 196 games for the Blues, but night and interstate games took his tally past the 230 mark. Carlton fans loved his style of play, scrupulously fair, backing himself to run off opponents, then kicking long to position. His win in the Brownlow Medal in 1961, with 21 votes, was only the second-ever by a Carlton player. • Continued Page 75

volleyball program has become, with more locals being noticed at the State and national level. “It’s also fantastic for our young volleyballers to see that their hard work and commitment can lead to a future in the sport.

• Brad Mason “Hopefully all five of our athletes can perform well, incorporate what they’ve learned from last year’s camps, and take the next step toward representing their country.” The camp, while important for all local athletes, will hold special significance for Cara Meyer, who last year only narrowly missed out on a playing spot with the national squad. While she was named a member of Australia’s extended group, Cara unfortunately didn’t get the chance to pull on the green and gold in 2010. • Continued Page 75

Mildura Weekly - 10/12/10

Trifecta of sporting royalty en route to Mildura MILDURA will play host to sporting royalty this weekend, with three of Australia’s – and one of the world’s – biggest names to appear at functions. Former Australian Football League superstars Shane Crawford and Doug Hawkins will headline a sportsman night at The Setts Bar and Function Centre tomorrow, while English cricketing legend, Sir Ian Botham, will be the special guest at a luncheon at the Mildura Club today. Mildura’s Gavin Hogg – a wine producer and former district cricketer of note now living near Penola in SA – is responsible for getting the cricketing legend to the region, after he was asked if he knew anyone who could entertain at a pre-Christmas function at the Club. ‘Hoggy’ had gotten to know many members of visiting English cricket teams at traditional Aussie barbecues over the past 30 years, and among those with whom he was acquainted was Graham Gooch, Ian Botham and David Gower. At one stage, while in the United Kingdom on business in 2007, ‘Hoggy’ was even invited by Gooch to join him for some BBC radio commentary for one of the Tests of the day. Botham, as it happens, is in Australia on assignment with the visiting English team, and when a representative of the Mildura Club rang his manager to ask the favour on behalf of Gavin, he was only too happy to oblige. Gavin, in Mildura bottling another selection of his ‘Hoggies’ brand of wines, will be among 170 guests at today’s luncheon, after which Botham will fly out to Perth for his next engagement. Brad Fox from the Mildura Club said Botham had attracted a full house, with the luncheon sold out within days of it being organised. Tickets were $150 a head. A former Test captain, Botham made his name in the sport as an allrounder, amassing 14 centuries and 383 wickets at Test level. While considered a controversial player both on and off the field, Botham’s talent led him to claiming a number of Test records. He still holds the record for the highest number of wickets taken by an English bowler in Test matches, and also boasts an induction into the International Cricket Council’s Hall of Fame. Botham made his Test debut on July 28, 1977 in the third Ashes Test against Australia, finishing with career figures of 5200 runs at an average of 33.54, and 383 wickets, while also

He is recognised as one of England’s greatest Test players, captaining the side for 12 Tests between 1980 and 1981, and it was during that time that Botham produced arguably his greatest performances in an Ashes series. After resigning from the captaincy after a loss and a draw in the first two

Tests of the 1981 Ashes series, Botham went to the third Test at Headingley with nothing to lose. Australia won the toss and elected to bat, declaring after tea on the second day with a total of 9/401 – Botham took 6/95. The next day was a disaster for England, with Graham Gooch out in the first over of the day, and Geoff Boycott and Mike Brearley also out before lunch. None of the other English batsmen got going, with the exception of Botham, who top-scored with 50. England were all out in the third session for 174, with Australia enforcing the follow-on. The Aussies piled on the pressure in the second innings, with Gooch out for 0, and England struggling to 1/6 by the third day’s end – still 221 behind. The following morning saw Brearley, then David Gower and Mike Gatting fall cheaply, with England 4/41. By the time Botham strode out to the crease, England were in deep trouble at 5/105. Matters didn’t improve as first Geoff Boycott, and then Bob Taylor, were soon dismissed, with England 7/135 and headed towards defeat. However with support from Dilley (56) and Chris Old (29), Botham hit out and by the close of play was 145 not out, with England leading by 124 runs.

On the final day’s play there was time for just four more runs from Botham, before number eleven batsmen Bob Willis fell. It was again Botham who helped lift the English bowling ranks, taking the first wicket of Australia’s second innings – Australia was eventually all out for just 111. Botham went on to find good form with both bat and ball, helping England win the 1981 Ashes series 3-1. He was also named man of the series, scoring 399 runs and taking 34 wickets.

And while ‘Beefy’ will entertain guests today, home-grown sporting stars Shane Crawford and Doug Hawkins will address audiences at The Setts tomorrow night from 6pm, with the pair to talk about their careers, and life after footy. Originally selected by the Hawthorn Football Club with Pick 13 in the 1991 AFL National Draft, Crawford went on to play more than 300 games for the Hawks. He is a four-time All-Australian player, former Hawks captain, and in 1999 won both the Brownlow Medal and the Leigh Matthews Trophy for Most Valuable Player. He has won four Hawthorn best and fairest awards (1998, 1999, 2002, 2003), and was a member of Hawthorn’s 2008 premiership side. And while known for his achievements and accolades on the football field, and for being a larrikin on Channel Nine’s ‘The Footy Show,’ it all pales by comparison to the daunting task Crawford undertook earlier this year. Departing Rundle Mall in Adelaide on September 16, 2010, Crawford completed an inspirational 780 kilometre run to Melbourne, all in an effort to raise awareness for breast cancer. He took a total of 11 days to complete the run, arriving at Channel 9’s Footy Show where the panel and crowd greeted him. He managed to raise nearly $500,000 for the Breast Cancer Network of Australia in the process. ‘Crawf’s’ host for the evening, Doug Hawkins, is also a well-loved footy personality, and fellow champion of the game. Boasting an incredible career that ran from 1978 to 1995, and included 350 games and 227 goals, Hawkins was named a member of the Western Bulldogs ‘Team of the Century’. Tickets for the night are available from The Setts for $20, with finger food to be included, and memorabilia to be auctioned off on the night. More information is available by contacting 5024 0474.
