omething to think about at Christmas… the following was written by Ben Stein – actor, writer, lawyer, political and economic issues commentator and former Richard Nixon speech writer who is known by millions as the ‘boring teacher’ who utters the immortal line “Bueller, Bueller” in the movie ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.’ It was presented by Stein on a recent CBS Sunday Morning Commentary. Ben is an American, and he presented this piece as an American, but there is a meesage in there for us all... He entitled it ‘My confession’: “I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejewelled trees, Christmas trees... I don’t feel threatened... I don’t feel discriminated against... That’s what they are, Christmas trees. “It doesn’t bother me a bit when people say, ‘Merry Christmas’ to me. I don’t think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn’t bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu .. If people want a creche, it’s just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away. “I don’t like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don’t think Christians like getting

She said: ‘I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we’ve been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?’ “In light of recent events... terrorist attacks, school shootings, etc.... I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.

mission (NTC), are targeted directly at B-double combinations. When they were first announced in 2007, the NTC said the fee increases for B-doubles were to compensate for B-doubles and other heavy vehicles failing to ‘pay their way.’ “Heavy vehicles’ share of total road spending ($11.65 billion in 2008) is $1.95 billion a year,” the NTC says on its website. “This is paid through registration fees and a net fuel charge.

“Currently heavy vehicles, particularly bigger trucks, like Bdoubles, underpay their cost of using the roads by $168 million. “For cost recovery, big trucks face registration fee increases phased-in over three years.” But the MTaLC says the trucking industry is being penalised for simply following the NTC’s original plan for more B-doubles more than a decade ago. MTaLC project officer Brendan Moritz says the NTC’s fee hikes

were hurting freight companies. “The thing you have to realise is that profit margins in the transport industry are two and three percent. They’re not real big profit margins,” he said. “So all of a sudden, if you’ve got 100 trucks on the road and you go and add an additional $5000 of registration costs to those 100 trucks, that’s a lot of money every year. That’s a half a million dollar increase.” •  Continued Page 7

THE trucking industry is accusing the Federal Government of a backflip over its policy on B-double heavy vehicles. Just over a decade ago there was a push to get more B-doubles on the roads as they were seen as more productive, given they could carry more per trip than singletrailer combinations. The move was also designed to cut down on the number of trucks on the roads. Sunraysia’s peak heavy vehicle representative body, the Mildura Transport and Logistics Cluster (MTaLC), says soaring registration increases for B-doubles over the past three years now appear designed to drive B-doubles from the industry. Over the past three years there has been a 33 percent increase in registration fees for prime movers and a similar increase for B-trailers (the rear trailer on a single or B-double combination). However, registration fees for A-trailers (the first trailer on a Bdouble), which are specific to Bdoubles, have shot up by more than 500 percent. At present it costs $7582 to register a prime mover, $1386 to register a trailer and a staggering $6372 to register the B-doublespecific A-trailer. Combined that’s more than $15,300 per B-double. Last year it cost just over $12,000 to register a B-double combination. MTaLC says these fee hikes, set by the National Transport Com-

Dirty water forces treatment rethink LOWER Murray Water has been forced to apply extra treatment to Mildura’s water supply due to the quality of water coming through the district following floods upstream. “Due to the higher flows coming through the river system we have seen a major ‘dirty’ water event occurring within the region,” Lower Murray Water managing director Ron Leamon said earlier this week. Mr Leamon said there had been a significant decline in the untreated raw water quality across the region. “The untreated river water has a brown colour to it due to high levels of tannins from organic material decaying and can have an unpleasant odour,” he said. “Also, there has been an effect on the urban supply in Kerang, Swan Hill and Mildura with extra treatment occurring to assist in clearing colour and taste, which is being caused by the organic material being stirred up by the high water flows.” While the river level at Mildura may have dropped due to removal of the weir, levels are expected to increase until the middle of January as flood flows pass through the district, sparking a reminder for private diverters in the region. “We ask our private diversion customers to be continually checking their pumping infrastructure over the coming weeks as the river will be increasing in height and this may mean pumps need to be moved,” Mr Leamon said.

Behind the scenes for Christmas WE live in difficult times. Challenging times. Every time we turn on the television, or pick up a newspaper, we seem to be inundated with bad news. Sad news. More dead in Iraqi bomb blasts, killer volcanoes, road carnage, plane disasters, asylum seeker tragedies, prison riots, hostage situations, people lost at sea, earthquakes, mud slides, tsunamis, devastating fires with huge loss of life and property... on and on it goes. But somehow, in the midst of all this, comes Christmas, and by and large we put all else to the back of our minds and go about the business of the festive season. Shops do a roaring trade, we’re besieged with a plethora of ‘feel good’ Christmas movies on TV, there are Christmas Carols in the street and in shopping centres, Santa is out in force, there’s no shortage of food, and people are getting ready firstly to swap Christmas presents, and then a few days later get set to make all the usual New Year promises. Sadly, the reality is that some people are just not going to have a happy Christmas... a Merry Christmas. They may have lost a loved one, to accident, illness or old age. They may have a youngster who is a runaway, someone who feels they are better off on their own rather than living with the discipline that comes with having a permanent roof over your head. There are the homeless, forced to sleep on the streets, more so in the city than the country, but they do exist in rural areas. There are people who have to rely on welfare handouts, including food, drink, clothing and blankets, just to get by. Then there are the elderly, our most precious ‘commodity’... the

Editorial

ones who helped steer the path to the future. They might be young at heart, but they’re not getting any younger, and we still haven’t found a cure for those insidious ailments of Alzheimer’s, dementia and the like. Our nursing homes are full of people who simply can’t care for themselves. Our Christmas thoughts are with all these people. Thankfully, there are hundreds of volunteers who play an important role at this time of the year... all through the year, in fact. They are

members of service clubs, church groups, sporting clubs, meals-onwheels, carers... the list goes on. People who unselfishly give freely of their time, and more often than not, money, to help the needy, the sick, the elderly and the less fortunate. We’re thinking of them too. At a time like this, many of our thoughts go to other ‘unsung heroes’ of our society, most of whom barely get a mention at this time of the year. They are the members of our emergency services... especially the police who patrol our streets, who have to

put up with the drunks, the obnoxious, the vile and the vicious. It is our hope that while they are on duty, they stay safe, and have time to celebrate Christmas and the New Year with family and friends. It’s a foregone conclusion that ambulance and hospital emergency personnel will have to do their usual horror jobs this Christmas, trying to save the lives of car wreck victims, but hopefully it won’t be as bad as previous years. There is hope, also, that our firefighters won’t be called out as often.

Our service men and women in war-torn countries, there in a peacekeeping role and under constant threat of death or serious injury, deserve a special mention at this time of the year. They, like their fathers and grandfathers before them, are not there by choice, but uphold the best traditions of all that is entrenched in the legend of the Aussie Digger. It is our Christmas wish that they all return home safe and sound to loved ones. It is our wish that animals, as well as people, are adequately looked after and cared for, not just this week, but all through the year. It is our wish that as well as having a good time, that people show tolerance, restraint and respect for others on our roads, that they alter their driving habits to suit the conditions, that they listen to police warnings about the dangers of drinkdriving, partying to excess, driving too fast etc. So our Christmas message this year is a simple one... we hope all the youngsters have their wish list filled. We hope everyone has someone with whom to celebrate Christmas, and above all, we hope all our readers come through the festive season happy, safe and refreshed - ready for 2011. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.

Experiencing culture B-double fee and education on a hike anger... global scale • From Page 3

Roger Pickering, director of one of Sunraysia’s largest road freight operators, Pickering Transport, says B-double registration costs have represented his biggest single cost increase over the past 12 months. Pickering Transport run about 140 B-double trucks, meaning the annual price hike over the past three years has been a major cost impost. Mr Pickering said the latest lead trailer registration hike, which came in on July 1 this year, has equated to an additional cost of $100 per week for every lead trailer his business owns. “The sad part is that cost is borne by the people who use our service, the end user,” he said. MTaLC chairman Dennis Tuit said the NTC was already looking at bigger, ‘more productive’ vehicles to replace B-doubles, but feared a repeat of the current fee hike in several years time. “The industry is now saying, why should we get higher productivity vehicles? We already set ourselves up with high productivity vehicles which cost a significant amount of money,” Mr Tuit said. “What next? Are they going to go and jack up the registration fees on these new combinations as well? “There wouldn’t be a transport company out there at the moment that’s not struggling because of these fee hikes.” Mr Moritz said many operators were even questioning the

By VINNIE RODI FOR the majority of people, travelling to different parts of the world, and experiencing new and exciting things, can be something of a dream. And while with a little hard work – and some serious saving – those dreams can become reality, it’s not always the case. Which is why when Mildura-based La Trobe University students Alyce Mitchell and Alex Cross were given an opportunity to study abroad, they grabbed it with both hands. Both students will spend an extended period studying overseas in the coming weeks, with Alex already in China continuing his Bachelor of Business degree, and Alyce only two weeks away from jet-setting off to Sweden to study nursing. Both Alyce and Alex said they were looking forward to their respective trips, with Alex in particular prepared for the experience of a lifetime. A mature age student at ]42, Alex, who is a third year – part-time – student, said he hoped the two-week trip would help his goal of one day working with businesses in the area of environmental sustainability. “Helping businesses develop environmental strategies, while becoming more sustainable, is certainly an area I’m interested in,” he said. “China is one of the biggest business capitals in the world, so it’s certainly going to be a wonderful opportunity. “This trip – while a chance to experience a different culture – is also a chance to open myself up to new ideas about the business world. • Continued Page 21

viability of running their existing B-doubles. “The Australian Trucking Association, which is the peak transport industry group based out of Canberra, have actually got a survey out at the moment for transport operators to find out what operators are doing with their lead trailers because of these new rate hikes,” he said. “There seems to be a perceived trend at the moment where some operators are starting to park up their lead (A-)trailers.” Mr Moritz said it was now cheaper, and more productive, to run road trains, though there are heavy restrictions on where they can be driven. “In New South Wales, Queensland and the top of South Australia, you can run double road trains instead of B-doubles,” he said. A double road train consists of a prime mover and two fullsize trailers. “A double road train isn’t affected by the lead (A-)trailer fee hikes. You’re paying about $1400 for each B-trailer (rear trailer), so you’re paying about half the cost for two B-trailers compared to one A-trailer.” Mr Tuit says this runs contrary to some of the Government’s aims of increasing safety on the roads. “That’s gone away from everything that Government has been trying to push,” he said. “B-doubles are more road friendly and stable than road trains. Everything about a B-double is better than a road train.”

Ken’s market is a real trap

By BEN PISCIONERI RABBIT traps were once used to protect a farmer’s crop or grass, while also helping to put food on the table. But it is a long time since ‘underground mutton’ was a staple food source and the traps themselves have now become a commodity in their own right, realising thousands of dollars at sale in some cases. Sunraysia is home to the biggest ‘trap meet’ in the nation, Fergy’s Trap Meet, attracting collectors from as far away as Tasmania, Perth and Queensland. The man after whom Fergy’s Trap Meet is named, Ken Ferguson, says the ‘trap meet’ scene has exploded in recent years to the point where individual traps can go under the hammer at auction for up to $5000. Their popularity has seen many rare traps which have been collecting dust in back sheds resurrected and sold to the highest bidder. Ken said when his auction first started a decade ago about 250 traps went under the hammer. This year’s meet attracted more

than 1000 traps, many of which are rare on the trap scene. Ken was quick to stress none of the traps are used for setting, as it’s now illegal to use them. All traps at the auction were for display/collector purposes only.

grown so much it has been extended from a single day when it first began to four days this year and utilises a Melbourne-based auctioneer due to its size. He said traps were valued on several factors including the manufacturer stamp. “The stamp has to be clean and crisp, but the overall condition and rarity of the items also comes into it,” Ken said. He said one of the big ‘no-nos’ was evidence of any modern welds on traps. “Some people do restore them, but not just anyone can restore them,” Ken said. “You’ve got to have a bit of blacksmith in your blood. You’ve got to try and make it authentic. You can’t let an electric welder anywhere near them. • Continued Page 10

They call it the Hart Walker, an expensive and complicated walking frame that has made a huge difference to the lives of thousands of Cerebral Palsy sufferers world-wide. The latest one has come out of the Red Cliffs Lions den after a big fund-raising effort. And it has meant a...

Small step, but a giant leap for young Ashton By ALAN ERSKINE EVERY week, month after month, year after year and regular as clockwork, Red Cliffs Lions have been putting money aside for a special project – the Children’s Mobility Foundation. When they have enough, the money is used to buy a unique and complicated United Kingdom-designed walking frame called a Hart Walker. It can be up to 10 years before there’s enough cash in the tin to complete the $12,000 purchase, but when the walker is handed over, it’s a life-changing experience, and not just for the young recipient. Red Cliffs Lions Club President Max Carson should know. He was at Mildura Specialist School recently when a Hart Walker was given to Ashton Thomson, a six-year-old victim of cerebral palsy. “It was an emotional experience,” Max said. “He had never walked before, and there was sheer excitement on his face...he looked like he was going to burst.” Max, in his 80’s, a Lion for 37 years and in his fourth term as club president, admits to having a tear in his eye as he watched Ashton being strapped into the Hart Walker for his first crack at walking. He said every Lions project, whether in Australia or overseas, was meaningful, but giving youngsters the chance to walk for the first time was extra special. Ashton’s Mum Kym Taylor said the walker had opened a new door for Ashton, who was absolutely delighted, and couldn’t wait to get to school each day to be strapped in. The Hart Walker is kept at the school during the week, but the family has the use of it at weekends and during holiday periods. “We had a few teething problems,” Kym said. “One of the straps was broken, but that’s been fixed, and now Ashton is slowly getting used to the walker.” The Hart Walker is a customised, orthotic walking frame designed to encourage a normal walk pattern. It consists of bracing around the chest, pelvis and lower limbs with movable joints at the hips, knees and ankles,

• A STEP AHEAD: Cerebral Palsy sufferer Ashton Thomson, 6, shows his excitement at finally being able to walk, as dad Nick tightens the last of the safety straps. RIGHT - As well as learrning to walk, Ashton tries to push young brother Jacoby, 1, in a bid to help mum Kym.

which help guide each step while preventing any excessive or unnatural movements such as ‘scissoring.’

The bracing is attached to a wheeled frame that allows handsfree mobility. The walker is fitted

with front swivel wheels which can be made to turn on the spot by the child’s ability to side step. Train-

ers say that although some children may take a little while to learn how to make their steps take them in a desired direction, once mastered, the frame provides good manoeuvrability. As the child gains strength and co-ordination and becomes more able to support his or her weight, the support mechanism is adjusted. The walker is named after inventor David Hart, a trained medical engineer working in the United Kingdom. After years working in a medical company, David now has his own clinic based in his home in Keighley. He developed the revolutionary walker after a family with a child with cerebral palsy visited him and asked for help.

Beat this! Raffle a heart-warmer

WITH her husband recovering strongly from heart surgery, financial planner and mother-ofthree Lynde Adams decided to support Heartbeat Sunraysia by buying a few tickets in their latest raffle. And this week her support paid off when her name was drawn from almost 4000 others from, of all things, a car boot! Organisers say they sold so many tickets they wouldn’t fit into the normal raffle barrel. Lynde, who works with Elders, said she and her husband Adrian, 38, would have plenty of use for the raffle prize – a trailer load of garden implements, including lawn mower and whipper-snipper, for their Red Cliffs home. Lynde said she normally supports raffles by buying a ticket or two, but because of Adrian’s recent surgery, this time she decided to buy $10 worth. Hers were some of the last tickets purchased before the raffle was drawn. It was a happy ending all round. The Adams family got a pre-Christmas present worth a few thousand dollars, Heartbeat was happy to have a sell-out, and

Small step, but a giant leap for young Ashton • From Page 9 The walker is now sought-after world-wide. There are at least five in use in Sunraysia, and about 400 across Australia. Although it looks deceptively simple, the Hart Walker actually has around 1000 working components. Trainers experienced in its use say that as well as providing hands-free mobility, the walker can also lead to a number of other health and social benefits. Parents have reported an improvement in

general fitness, strength, muscle control, balance and co-ordination. A major benefit is that the child finds it easier to play and interact with other children. There have also been reports of faster growth in children who use the walker. During February 1997, a physiotherapist and an orthotist from a UK centre for disabled children were trained by David Hart to prescribe, fit and to provide intensive follow up of the Hart Walker. They have subsequently trained teams in all

Australian States and New Zealand to carry out their own programs. David Hart has continued training physiotherapists and orthotists from around the world, and his walker is now available in many other countries, including the UK, USA, Canada, Japan, Israel and Norway. The list is constantly growing. The walkers are manufactured by a company in Canada, with David Hart being personally responsible for quality assurance.

• FOOTNOTE: Most users of the walker are victims of Cerebral Palsy, a collection of disorders affecting posture and movement due to a defect or lesion to the developing brain. It is the most common of all disabilities, affecting one in every 400 babies born in Australia. It is one of the most expensive of all disabilities to manage. At this stage as there is no government funding for the Hart Walker program.

“We use a forge and hammer on them so they’re authentic. You don’t just use a welder. Once you put a weld on a trap it drops a heap in price. “And people certainly know their stuff. If a trap’s got a weak spring, for example, people won’t pay as much.” He said some traps were more than 150-years-old and came in all shapes and sizes. While rabbit traps would probably be most common, Ken’s trap meet brings out everything from giant man and bear traps to one of the smallest of traps - the kingfisher trap. Many traps are a reflection of the times in which they were used. For example, man traps were used in England to catch poachers, something that wouldn’t even be considered today. The prevalence of rabbit traps meanwhile, illustrates the massive problems Australia had with the introduction of the rabbit in the midto-late 1800s. There were about 13 million Lanes Ace rabbit traps manufactured, making them one of the most common traps ever made. Ken’s connection with traps goes back to his father, who was a collector. “My father collected a few 20 years ago, and when he died I was going through the shed and found them, so I thought I’d continue it,” he said. It’s a passion that obviously holds a special place in Ken’s life. “I paid $27 for my last Lanes Ace trap and I put it on my dad’s coffin, and the kids had their names engraved on it, and that’s the last one I bought,” he said.

RED HOT SUMMER OF MUSIC Sunraysia is set to sizzle next month, and it won’t be because of a summer heatwave… January will see three of Australia’s hottest acts – showcasing music from the 1970s through to today – descend on Nowingi Place, as…

Mildura braces for a night of great rock ‘n’ roll By VINNIE RODI WHEN Australian rock royalty Jimmy Barnes takes The Nowingi Place stage on Sunday, January 9, as part of the Red Hot Summer tour, it will mark almost 12 months since his last visit to Mildura. A visit ‘Barnsey’ admits isn’t one he likes to dwell on. Performing as part of a tour by the same name, and accompanied by fellow Australian artists Shannon Noll and Adam Brand, Barnes endured temperatures exceeding the 40 degree mark that day – an experience he’s hoping to avoid the second time around. “Don’t get me wrong I love coming to Mildura, you guys have the beautiful Murray River as a back-drop, and the crowds are sensational, and to be honest it’s a trip I’d like to make a yearly event,” he said. “But it can get bloody hot in your neck of the woods, and I’m hoping the weather will be a bit kinder to everyone this time around.” Set to be joined by fellow Australian rockers Noiseworks and Thirsty Merc, a large crowd is expected, with Barnes saying locals would be treated to a “spectacular” rock ‘n’ roll show. “Last year, while I played a number of songs from the Chisel days, I sang even more songs from my soul albums,” he said. “This time around it’s all about rock – not only will I be singing songs from my past, but I’ll also be showcasing a few from my new album ‘Rage and Ruin.’ “And with great rock bands

like Noiseworks and Thirsty Merc playing as well, Mildura is set for a great night of Australian music.” Rage and Ruin is Barnes’ 16th solo album, and is the first ‘original’ piece of work the 54-year-old has produced since 2007. It’s an album that draws inspiration from a “troubled time” in Barnes’ life, where the rocker battled drug and alcohol addiction. Two singles have already been released from the record, ‘Before the Devil Knows You’re

“... it can get bloody hot in your neck of the woods, and I’m hoping the weather will be a bit kinder to everyone this time around.” – Jimmy Barnes Dead’ and ‘God or Money’, with the album itself debuting at number three on the ARIA Album Chart earlier this year. “I’m really happy with how it’s turned out,” Barnes said about ‘Rage and Ruin.’ “It’s got a great rock theme, and it takes me back to the 1980s.” Both of Barnes’ ‘support’ acts for the night also said they were looking forward to the show, with Noiseworks frontman Jon Stevens quick to play down talk that his recent medical problems would be a factor.

The rocker underwent a double heart bypass in 2009, after doctors found his heart was only pumping at one percent blood flow. “I’m a very lucky boy,” he said. “I’m very lucky to still be here. “Personally I feel great, my heart is pumping at 100 percent, and I feel on top of the world.” Stevens said he was looking forward to returning to Mildura. “It’s been a long time since I’ve performed there,” he said. “The great thing about Noiseworks is that we don’t have any tricks or gimmicks on stage, we just give it everything – and it’s the same with Jimmy and Thirsty Merc. “All in all it’s going to be a great night.” Tickets are $69.90 for adults, $29.90 for children aged between six and 17, and free for those aged five and under, and are available by contacting Ticketmaster on 136 100 or by visiting www. ticketmaster.com.au. Alternatively tickets can be purchased through O’Malley’s Irish Tavern on 5021 4236. Audience members are encouraged to bring a low deck/camp chair, picnic rug, soft pack esky, sealed bottles of water, and light snack foods, with the event to be fully licenced. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult, with gates to open from 4pm. More information is available by visiting www.redhotsummertour.com.au.

Jimmy Barnes – the story of a rock legend OVER the course of 37 years, Australian rock icon, Jimmy Barnes, has forged himself into a legend of the Australian music industry, becoming one of the best talents this country has ever produced. He has sold literally millions upon millions of albums as lead singer of ARIA Hall of Famers Cold Chisel, while also enjoying a solo career that is unmatched by any other Australian act. It’s a career that’s seen the now 54-yearold expand into a number of different musical genres, with rock at the forefront, and soul and blues a close second, with Barnes saying there was no desire to slow down. “I have the best job in the world,” he said.

“I get to travel all over the country, and perform to incredible crowds. It’s a job I want to keep doing until I simply can’t do it anymore.” Barnes’ journey begins in 1956, when James Dixon Swan (his real name) was born in Glasgow, Scotland to parents Dorothy and Jim Swan. The family decided to make the move to Adelaide in 1961 – with Barnes just four at the time – eventually settling in Elizabeth. Shortly after making the move Barnes’ parents divorced, with his mother remarrying Reg Barnes – a clerk. • Continued page 14

RED HOT SUMMER OF MUSIC

Noise by name, musical by nature NOISEWORKS has been a feature of the Australian music industry for 24 years, with their pop-based rock, and easily recognisable tunes, catapulting them to the top. They are a unique group in the sense that they have a connection to not just Australia, but to New Zealand, with frontman Jon Stevens originally from the land of the Long White Cloud. It’s also where Stevens, RIGHT, got his start, releasing a solo album and several hit singles before relocating to Sydney in 1981. Shortly after arriving Stevens set about recording and releasing a self-titled album, with two singles released. Both failed to make an impact, which led to Stevens forming ‘The Change’ in 1983, a band that featured Stuart Fraser on guitar, Steve Balbi on bass, and Kevin Nicol on drums. Balbi’s song-writing partner Justin Stanley (keyboards) eventually joined the group in 1986, with the band renamed ‘Noiseworks.’ The group then set about establishing a big following in Sydney’s pub rock circuit, before being signed by CBS Records. Their first single ‘No Lies,’ broke into the Top 40 on the Kent Music Report Singles Chart (the front run-

ner to the ARIA Charts), with ‘Take Me Back’ reaching the number seven spot. ‘Take Me Back’ also went on to become one of the group’s most successful and recognisable songs. Noiseworks released its debut self-titled album in 1987 – which peaked at number six on the national Albums Chart. Two singles from that album, ‘Love Somebody’ and ‘Welcome to the World’, were also released, though neither broke into the Top 40. Noiseworks’ debut album went on to sell more than 210,000 copies nationwide. The group’s second album ‘Touch’ was released 12 months lat-

er, debuting at number five on the ARIA Albums Chart. ‘Touch’ was also the name of the first single released from the album, with the song going on to crack the Top 40 – peaking at number 12. Subsequent singles ‘Voice of Reason,’ ‘Simple Man’ and ‘In My Youth’ unfortunately all failed to follow suit. Despite struggling to make an impact on Australia’s singles chart, Noiseworks quickly established it-

self as one of the country’s favourite rock acts. The group’s third album, ‘Love Versus Money,’ was the first produced by Sony Music – Noiseworks’ new label. It was initially rejected by Sony, however thanks to the assistance of producer Randy Jackson, the album was eventually given the green light. ‘Love Versus Money’ featured guest appearances by INXS frontman Michael Hutchence, and Vika and Linda Bull, and Penny Ford from ‘techno’ group ‘Snap!’. The first two singles, ‘Freedom’ and ‘Miles and Miles’ were moderate hits, but the third, the hard-rocking ‘Hot Chilli Woman,’ reached number seven on the national charts, propelling the album to the number one spot when it was released in 1991. Stevens then took a break from the group in 1992, joining the cast of the ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ in the role of Judas. Noiseworks disbanded later that year in Sydney, coinciding with the release of the group’s Greatest Hits compilation, which featured a cover of The Beatles classic ‘Let It Be’. ‘Let It Be’ was recorded live at the group’s final concert, and was even released as a single – helping the compilation reach number four on the national album charts.

Despite calling it quits, the band still stayed close, with Balbi and Stanley forming a new pop group ‘Electric Hippies’ in 1993. They enjoyed top 30 success with the single ‘Greedy People,’ and by 1997 Balbi had formed yet another band ‘Universe’. Stevens on the other hand returned to his solo career, appearing as the host of reality TV show ‘The Resort.’ In 1999, Fraser, Nicol and Stevens reformed as ‘Noiseworks II’, with Chris Becker on bass and Barbara Griffin on keyboards. In 2000 Stevens joined INXS after the death of Michael Hutchence, initially touring as a guest vocalist. He was eventually named a permanent member of the group, before deciding to leave INXS in 2003. Noiseworks eventually reformed as a whole in 2007 – with Scott Aplin on keyboards in place of Stanley – for a national tour with The Choirboys and Balbi’s side-project ‘Move Trees.’ In December that same year the group announced they planned to return to the studio to record their first studio album together in 16 years, however due to health concerns with Stevens – who underwent a double heart bypass – the album is yet to eventuate.

Tour to be ‘thirsty work’ for Thirsty Merc AUSTRALIAN rockers Thirsty Merc have become favourites amongst music lovers, with the group’s catchy lyrics, easy listening tunes, and quirky nature helping them achieve a reputation as one of the most popular bands in the country. Add to that an incredible live presence, and it’s no wonder this group has fast become arguably Australia’s favourite modern-day rockers. It’s a trend the group will look to continue when they join Jimmy Barnes on his ‘Red Hot Sumer’ tour, with bassist Phil Stack saying he was looking forward to it. “This will be the first time we’ve played in Mildura, which is very exciting” he said. “We always like visiting new places, and performing in front of different crowds.” Not the first time the group has performed alongside Jimmy Barnes, Phil

said he was looking forward to another opportunity to learn from the best in the business. “We’ve been very lucky to support Jimmy a couple of times before, and it’s always an interesting experience” he said. “The wealth of knowledge Barnesy has is just amazing, and to have an opportunity to work with him again is going to be incredible.” In addition to playing support on the tour, the group will also promote their third studio album ‘Mousetrap Heart’, which since its release only a few short months ago, has already gone on to great success. “Our first album (Thirsty Merc) was a quirky album, while our second release (Slideshows) was more subdued, and was essentially a break-up record,” Phil said. “With this album we felt

nominated for four ARIA Awards in 2005, with frontman Rai nominated for ‘Song of the Year’ at the APRA Awards in 2008 for ‘20 Good Reasons.’ It’s a journey that starts in Sydney eight years ago, with the group’s name originating from lead singer Rai’s “gas guzzling Mercedes Benz” – a ‘Thirsty Merc’ if you will. The name is also a play on the phrase ‘thirsty work’ – which is how members describe being in a rock band. After coming up with a name, the band quickly set their sights on recording and releasing its first EP. The EP, entitled ‘First Work’, produced only one single (Wasting Time), which went on to achieve radio airplay on Triple J and Nova despite failing to chart nationally.

like the pressure was off to a certain extent, and we were all in a great frame of mind when we started recording it. “Mousetrap Heart has a great rock feel to it, and there’s certainly an upbeat and enthusiastic theme present, one I don’t think we’ve showcased before, and that we’re looking forward to translating live on stage.” Thirsty Merc has come a long way since forming in 2002, with members Rai Thistlethwayte (vocals/guitar/keyboards), Phil (bass guitar), Karl Robertson (drums), and Matt Smith (guitar) proving a force in the Australian music industry. The band has sold more than 200,000 albums, and has toured Australia extensively in that time, receiving a number of awards and accolades. This includes being

Mildura Weekly - 24/12/10

Jimmy Barnes – the story of a rock legend •  From Page 12 Dorothy encouraged all of her children to change their last name to Barnes shortly after the marriage (mainly due to her children being the subject of school bullying) which all of them did – except for eldest son John. Barnes went on drop out of school and take an apprenticeship at an iron smelter with the South Australian railways in 1973, however his love and passion for music – a trait shared by brother John – quickly led to him joining a band. John (or Swanee as he was more commonly known) was playing drums with a band called ‘Fraternity’ at the time – with the group deciding to part ways with their lead singer Bon Scott, who would later go on to great fame as the frontman of AC/DC. Barnes took over the role – albeit for a short time – before joining the more ‘hardedged’ group ‘Orange,’ which featured organist Don Walker, guitarist Ian Moss, drummer Steve Prestwich and bass player Les Kaczmarek. A short time later the group changed its name to Cold Chisel, developing a strong presence on the local music scene. After a temporary move to Armidale, NSW, where Walker completed his engineering studies, Cold Chisel moved to Melbourne in August 1976, before moving to Sydney three months later. Progress was slow, forcing Barnes to contemplate leaving the group in 1977 to join

his brother in a band called ‘Feather.’ All that changed after his scheduled farewell performance with Cold Chisel, so much in fact that Barnes stayed with group for an extra month – a time when the band was signed to WEA Records. By 1980 Cold Chisel was considered the biggest band in Australia, with Barnes developing a notorious reputation as a hard-drinking, wild man – reportedly drinking more than two bottles of vodka a day, much of it during performances. Despite being hugely successful in Australia, the group failed to crack the all-important international market, with a disastrous American tour in 1981 starting to create cracks within the group. While the 1982 album ‘Circus Animals’ provided Cold Chisel with its second consecutive Australian number one, Barnes returned from the band’s German tour in 1983 virtually broke. He asked for a $10,000 advance from the band’s management – and was refused – as the terms of the

group’s contract stated that if one member was given such a sum, the rest were entitled to the same amount. At a meeting in August that same year it was decided Cold Chisel would split up, with the ‘The Last Stand’ farewell tour going on to become the highest-grossing concert series ever by an Australian band. Barnes recorded seven albums with Cold Chisel between 1978 and 1983 – including two live albums – forging a reputation as arguably Australia’s highest-profile rock singer. Barnes launched his solo career less than a month after Cold Chisel’s end, assembling a support band that included former Fraternity bass player

Mildura Art Group sale MILDURA Art Group will host a Christmas/New Year’s exhibition and sale during the next two weeks, with a variety of works – all created by local artists – to be on display from this Sunday, December 26 to Sunday, January 9.

Bruce Howe, and guitarists Mal Eastick and Chris Stockley. The group began touring and writing immediately – signing a deal to Mushroom Records that same year. Barnes released his first solo album ‘Bodyswerve’ soon after, with the album an immediate success, entering the Australian charts at number one. It began an incredible run for Barnes, whose first six solo albums all debuted in the number one position – a feat that no other Australian musical artist has since matched. Early in his solo career Barnes was determined to break into the US market, signing to Geffen Records. His second album ‘For the Working

Class Man’ was tailored in this direction, featuring remixed songs from ‘Bodyswerve,’ plus five new tracks including ‘Working Class Man.’ The album was released as a double vinyl set, selling 250,000 copies in Australia, and like its predecessor debuted on the national chart at number one – staying there for a remarkable seven weeks. The album was re-titled ‘Jimmy Barnes’ in the US, with Barnes heading off with a band of Canadian musicians for a tour alongside iconic American rockers ZZ Top. In the early 1990s Barnes began a trend of recording duets with both Australian and international acts, starting with fellow Aussie rockers INXS. In 1991 he recorded a version of ‘When Something is Wrong With My Baby’ with John Farnham and the following year he released a version of ‘Simply The Best’ with Tina Turner, while his 1993 album ‘Flesh and Wood’ also featured several duets, including songs with Joe Cocker, Archie Roach and Tommy Emmanuel. By this time Barnes’ success was unrivalled by any other Australian artist, leading to the rocker signing a worldwide release deal with Atlantic Records, and immediately working on his next album ‘Two Fires.’ The following year he released ‘Soul Deep,’ an album of soul covers, and one that showcased a never-beforeseen musical side. It went on to become Barnes’ most successful album ever. The 1993 album ‘Heat’

Thirsty work for Thirsty Merc •  From Page 13

After extensive gigs around Sydney’s pubs, representatives from Warner Music approached the band, with Thirsty Merc’s debut album released in 2004. It spent 48 weeks on the ARIA Album Chart, peaking at number 15, with five singles from the album; ‘Emancipate Myself,’ ‘My Completeness,’ ‘Someday, Someday,’ ‘In the Summertime,’ and ‘When the Weather Is Fine’ all going on to great success. ‘In the Summertime’ was also

nominated for the 2005 ARIA Award for Best Video, while ‘Someday, Someday’ was nominated for Single Of The Year, Best Group, and Best Pop Release awards. Thirsty Merc’s second album ‘Slideshows’ was released in 2007, again via Warner Music Australia, eclipsing the success of the group’s award-winning debut. The album peaked at number four on the Australian charts, with the first three singles, ‘20 Good Reasons,’ ‘The Hard Way,’ and ‘Those Eyes’ also performing well. After the release of Slideshows,

saw Barnes return to his hard rock roots, and while the album peaked at number two, it broke the rockers trend of debuting at number one. After years of success, Barnes’ career took a massive dive in the mid-1990s, with his music publishing company ‘Dirty Sheet Music’ going broke. Despite financial difficulties, Barnes continued to make albums, with the 1995 release ‘Psyclone’ reaching number two in Australia. In 1996 he released a Greatest Hits compilation, with the single ‘Lover, Lover’ catapulting him back to the top. That comeback was continued with another string of solo releases, including a second album of soul tunes, ‘Soul Deeper’, in 2000. Barnes’ greatest solo honour came in 2005, when he was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame, making him one of the rare few to be included in the Hall twice – his first time in 1993 with Cold Chisel. In September 2007, and after a bout of serious health issues, Barnes began recording his 13th studio album ‘Out In The Blue’ – which debuted at number three on the ARIA charts. Barnes released his 15th album ‘The Rhythm and the Blues’ in 2009, which immediately became his ninth number one solo release. And it’s a career that looks to keep getting bigger and better, with the rockers upcoming Red Hot Summer tour coinciding with the release of his 16th solo album, ‘Rage and Ruin.’

JOAN Beven is at an age when she should be pottering around her garden, happy and carefree, and really enjoying the twilight years of her life. Instead, she has to put up with vandals who are testing her patience – and purse – to the limit, with continual thefts of a variety of objects from her front garden in the three years she has been living in 14th Street. Approaching 80, Joan says people wouldn’t believe what people will steal... even down to the bricks that surround her garden beds. Joan takes great pride in her garden, but says she can hardly keep up with the vandalism and petty theft, mostly at weekends.

“I love my garden, and I like to keep it looking nice,” she said. “But I wake up on Sundays never knowing what has been damaged or stolen.” She says that nothing of any value has been stolen she gets most of her garden ornaments, pots etc from Aroundagain - but one item she does miss is the lovely garden arch inside the front gate. Vandals pushed it over, so she roped it down, but the next week they stole the rope! Then, a week or so later, they took the arch itself. Joan was hoping the thieves had discarded it nearby, but a search of the area failed to uncover anything. It has never been recovered. “You wouldn’t believe

what else has gone missing,” Joan said. “The latest one was a garden pot. They just threw the plant away, and took the pot. They even took the soil from another pot nearby!” Joan was surprised and disappointed at the thefts, but was shocked when she found that thieves had taken some of the red bricks that surround her garden beds. “If they want these items so badly, all they have to do is go to Aroundagain and get them very cheaply, or sometimes for nothing,” Joan said. “When these annoying thefts first started, I thought it strange, and a little funny... but now I have stopped laughing, and I am really angry at them.”

Merbein arrest over metro murder

THE story made national headlines... a mother of two shot and stabbed to death before her body was taken to bushland in the Dandenongs and dumped. It had a sequel when one of the suspects, a 24-year-old was arrested by Mildura detectives over the weekend at a Merbein address. Another two men, aged 31 and 48, were arrested at separate locations, and have also been charged over the murder. The Merbein raid followed a call from the Melbourne Homicide Squad. Police said the 24-year-old was alleged to have been involved in a dispute with the murdered woman over money at a Ferntree Gully address on November 28. The woman, 27, was shot, her throat cut and attempts were made to dismember her body, which was dumped on the side of the road in the Dandenong Ranges. The 24-year-old arrested at Merbein has been charged with murder, and is now in police custody in Melbourne.

Warning on cash Mildura police have issued a timely reminder to sporting clubs to make sure they secure their clubrooms, and in particular their stock and cash takings, over the Christmas break. They say that in previous years, several sporting clubs have been broken into, with canteen supplies and cash stolen. Police have advised operators of sporting club canteens to remove all cash and valuables from the clubhouse before locking up for the holidays.

Program success As previously reported in Crime Beat, Neighbourhood Watch in

they are likely to be, and the more helpful the information will be to police. The type of information sought would be vehicle details such as the registration, make, model and colour, or a description of the individual, such as age, height, hair colour, build, facial hair and clothing. Information can be phoned through on a confidential basis to Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.

CRIME BEAT partnership with local police are conducting both random and targeted car park audits in Mildura and the surrounding area in an attempt to reduce the number of incidents of both theft from, and theft of, motor vehicles. Police have been running this program for the past three months, and say the results are beginning to show. Statistics show the number of vehicles being located either unlocked or with valuables on display has dropped by over 50 percent, and the crime rate in relation to these types of offences is also well down on the same time last year. But police warn that although these results are encouraging, there are still too many people leaving vehicles unlocked or leaving valuables clearly on display. They say that another crime trend that has become evident is that these types of offences are not occurring as often in the traditional hotspots (shopping centre car parks). They appear to be happening more frequently in residential areas. Police say this would indicate that people are not as security conscious once they are at home. They say it is important to remember that people should lock their car as soon as they leave it, no

matter where they are. Police have congratulated the community on their so far, but said there was still a long way to go, and as long as the problem remained, the audits would continue. Neighbourhood Watch coordinator Helen Worcester said the program was having some good results, but she said that coming into the Christmas holiday period, it was extremely important that people don’t let their guard down. “It is always important at this time of the year to remain vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour immediately by calling 000,” she said.

Bushfire arson The Victorian Government allocated funding to Crime Stoppers Victoria in August. 2010 to run a campaign over three years to encourage the public to report information relating to bushfire arson to the Crime Stoppers hotline 1800 333 000. An awareness campaign has been developed based on research and statistics, and will appear throughout Victoria over the summer period. Police say that if people believe a person is behaving in a suspicious manner, or they see a suspicious vehicle, they should write down the details. If people record the details straight away, the more accurate

Identity assistance Readers have been asked to help police identify the person in our photographs. She is wanted for questioning over the theft of alcohol from a local supermarket liquor store. Anyone with information on the identity should contact Constable Jacqui Smith at Mildura Police Station on 5018 5300 or Crime Stoppers (anonymously) on 1800 333 000.

Take precautions Mildura Police Crime Prevention Officer, Leading Senior Constable Mark Baumann is asking residents to consider taking a few precautions if they are planning to go away for Christmas. “Securing your home is important at all times, but especially if you are considering going away for any length of time,” he said. “By taking some simple precautions and giving your home a ‘livedin’ look while you are away, you can substantially reduce the risk of your

home being broken into. “To do this, consider installing automatic timing devices for lights and electrical appliances such as radios and televisions. By automatically switching on lights, your house can maintain its normal lighting pattern.” Leading Senior Constable Baumann said people should let a trusted neighbour know that they would be away, and ask them to keep an eye on your house. They should also consider asking a neighbour to park a car in your driveway, collect any junk mail and put out their garbage bin on collection night. It’s also a good idea to turn down the volume on your telephone on the day you leave, and arrange for mail to be held or redirected. People should also consider disconnecting the electrical supply on radio-controlled or electronic garage doors and engage manual locks instead. And they should lock away garden tools, ladders and other items which could be used to break into a home. Finally, residents should take the time to ensure that all doors and windows are securely locked. This practise should also be adopted when at home, especially at night. Police say a majority of houses that are burgled after offenders gain entry through an unlocked door or window. “These are all very simple things that home owners can do to help protect their homes whilst they are away,” Leading Senior Constable Baumann said. “If people take the time to think about their security and consider implementing some of these ideas, then they should be able to reduce the risk of their home being broken into.” • Continued Page 21

The dark side of Christmas By SUE POOLE I HAVE been feeling miserable for the past couple of days… and a bit ashamed of myself. Do you remember the incident in Melbourne when a bikie shot two men down outside a nightclub, killing one and critically injuring another because they came to the assistance of a young woman he was assaulting? There was also a woman who sat with the injured man, a foreign backpacker, holding his hand and pleading with him not to die while the gunman was still on the loose. It was such a moving story, made all the more moving due to the bravery shown by those concerned. They risked their lives to help someone. At the time I thought, “I hope that I would have the courage to help someone in desperate need.” In my dreams. This week I was in Mildura and witnessed a scene that appalled me. No, there was no gunman, nor were any lives endangered – well, not in the literal sense anyway. What I saw was two young women in a car park, accompanied by three or four young children and a couple of prams, that may or may not have contained babies. The pair was subjecting those poor kids to a tirade of verbal abuse, the likes of which I had never

heard before. This was not just tired, hassled mums becoming impatient with their kids – which I can fully understand and sympathise with. This was a blast so loud that everyone in the vicinity could hear, and so prolonged it could not but attract attention. There were plenty of people who turned to look at this most ugly of scenes, but turned away not wanting to get involved. The women used language that could only have been dredged up from the gutter. In fact, a gutter would have been a pristine environment compared to the words coming out of their mouths. It is not pleasant to hear a little girl called two of our ugliest swearwords, and to realise it is her own mother screaming it into her face while grasping the youngster’s arm in a vicelike grip. I have no idea what that child had done to warrant such behaviour in her mother’s eyes. Or, indeed, what any of these children had done to provoke this attack.

I have no idea what that child had done to warrant such behaviour in her mother’s eyes. Or, indeed, what any of these children might have done to provoke this attack. What was so horrifying is that these women continued, despite their children standing zombie-like beside the prams, not speaking, not defending themselves, as the screamed obscenities washed over them. It was so loud that it was hard to believe that

the women were not quite proud of their behaviour. I wondered later if perhaps they thought people would be impressed because they were ‘controlling’ their children. Sadly, after a several minutes another, older woman emerged from the toilet. The grandmother?

She just stood there, impassively, and did nothing. A grandmother! If indeed that was what she was! Did it all seem quite normal to her? Could she not have found it in her heart to protect the kids? Were the young women her daughters and had she taught them these behaviours? But saddest of all, I sat in my car and said nothing. I was too scared. I thought that I would have a tirade of abuse, or maybe even worse, directed at me if I intervened so I weakly rang the police and asked them to do something. To their credit, the Police took my call with respect and promised to send someone down. But what would the police do? Can parents be forced to be kind to their children? The women drifted off, the little kids trailing behind them… Perhaps they were so used to this behaviour that it was of no consequence. But assuredly as it happened, it WILL affect them as they grow older and, in 20 years time ,when another writer is questioning abuse like this – quite possibly about the children I saw being abused abusing their children in turn – people will ask: “How did they get like this?”

Taking Christmas to the street! IT’S the night before Christmas Day, and while in other parts of the world not even a mouse is stirring, Wentworth residents are gearing up for the community party of the year. The Wentworth Mainstreet Christmas Eve Party has become a yearly tradition for residents and visitors alike, with the event to once again provide people with an opportunity to share in the festive spirit, while being treated to a night of free entertainment. To be held in Darling Street, the night will be hosted by Steve Cooper, with events to get underway from 6.30pm. Returning this year will be the “famous” ‘Water Brigade’ relay, and a Talent Quest (with trophies and cash prizes to be awarded to winners in the senior, intermediate and junior sections). Anyone interested in taking part in these events needs to register, and can do so by either contacting 5027 3624, or by signing up at the registration table on the night at 6.30pm. Those wishing to sing in the talent contest are also advised to bring their own backing tapes. Amongst the night’s many highlights will be a visit from Santa Claus, while the ‘monster’ hamper raffle will return in 2010, with plenty of prizes up for grabs. Plenty of activities will be available to keep the kids occupied, with the free jumping castle sure to be the main attraction. A coffee van and alfresco dining will also be on offer, with the night’s finale to include a fireworks display (courtesy of Wentworth Shire Council), which will be showcased above the Darling River. All proceeds from the night will go toward supporting local families with children in need of medical treatment. People are invited to bring their own chairs to the event, with more information available by contacting the Wentworth Visitor Information Centre on 5027 3624.

Researchers return fire on Mallee burns A UNIVERSITY research project has questioned the recommendations of a Royal Commission into the 2009 Victorian bushfires, saying they would place the Mallee under threat. The Mallee Fire and Biodiversity Project was a joint effort by La Trobe University and Deakin University. Its conclusion was that a blanket application of annual prescribed burning targets recommended by the Bushfires Royal Commission could threaten the long-term health of mallee ecosystems. Project leaders, Associate Professor Mike Clarke from La Trobe

and Professor Andrew Bennett from Deakin, called into question the Commission’s recommendation of an annual ‘prescribed burning’ target of five percent of public land, saying such an unprecedented level of burning could have dramatic consequences for native fauna. The Murray Mallee region encompasses an area three times the size of Belgium around the borders of Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia, and gets its name from the ‘mallee’ eucalypts that are characteristic of this region. Over four years Professors Clarke and Bennett, seven PhD students and more than 100 volun-

teers investigated flora and fauna at 840 sites in the region in order to assess the impact of fire on native ecosystems. The project - the first and largest of its kind in Australia - found that many threatened species in the Mallee preferred habitats that have gone decades without fire. Professor Clarke said the Striated Grasswren was one such species, which required large clumps of spinifex most suitable 25 to 40 years after a fire. He said research showed that tree hollows, needed by many kinds of animals for nesting or roosting, take at least 40 years to develop in the Mallee. • Continued Page 18

Giant radish is green thumb Joe’s pride... JOE Tisler loves his garden. A bit of a ‘green thumb,’ he’s been at it a long time, but even he was surprised by the size of a giant radish he grew last season. Joe has had the now dried-out radish in his shed for several months, but getting seeds out of the pods for this year, he thought he would share his unusual vegie with our readers, and wonders if anyone can beat it with an unusual ‘my garden’ story. Joe, 69 and from Merbein, said the first thing he noticed about the mother plant was its unusual colour... a very noticeable purple instead of the normal reddish colour associated with the radish family. While a radish plant would normally grow to about 40cm, this one soared to almost two metres, producing hundred of pods containing seeds. It took three steel posts to hold it in position. Joe, who also grows a few tomatoes, cucumbers and the unusual ‘Swan’ plant, says he’s never seen anything like his giant radish, although he has heard stories of other mutant vegetables, and is interested to see what readers come up with.

According to Prof Clarke, burning five percent of the Mallee area annually (almost four times the historic average) would be “unwise” and would threaten the future prospects of species like the Grasswren, the distinctive mound-nesting Mallee fowl, and the globally endangered Mallee Emu-wren. “Of course there is a need for prescribed burning to protect life and property, and to reduce the risk of large bushfires, but a blanket application of the five percent target proposed by the Royal Commission ignores ecological subtleties in areas like the Mallee,” he said. “The five percent figure was based on “foothill forest” areas like the Dandenongs and Kinglake where people have settled, but it’s not ecologically sustainable in areas like the Mallee.” In the four years since the study began, the collaborative research team has pioneered a technique that helps to determine the age of mallee vegetation and thereby assess its suitability as habitat. By assessing over 40,000 stems from mallee trees, the team developed an algorithm for ageing Mallee that has subsequently been peer-reviewed and published in the Australian Journal of Botany. This method is said to help land managers identify and map long-unburnt Mallee vegetation when planning for fire management. The Mallee Fire and Biodiversity Project was made possible by a series of grants and contributions from a number of organisations from Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia. These included Parks Victoria, the Victorian Department of Sustainability and Environment, Mallee Catchment Management Authority, New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service, NSW Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water, Lower Murray Darling Catchment Management Authority, the South Australian Department of Environmental and Natural Resources, Land and Water Australia, Natural Heritage Trust, Bird Australia (Gluepot Reserve), Australian Wildlife Conservancy, and the Murray Mallee Partnership. More information about the Mallee Fire and Biodiversity Project’s findings are available by downloading the project results brochure from the La Trobe University Zoology website.

Daruma not just an ordinary doll

MORE than 71,000 Toyota employees in 26 countries around the world know the tradition surrounding the famed Daruma Doll... and last week they were joined by Mildura staff when the doll arrived at Markwell’s Auto Group. Presentation of the Daruma Doll, which has its origins many centuries ago, is serious business, evidenced by the entourage of Toyota executives from Sydney and Adelaide, led by the head of Toyota Australia, David Buttner, who flew to Mildura for the occasion. Toyota Mildura dealer principal Rod Markwell said the history surrounding the Daruma Doll centred on the Japanese philosophy of Kaizen, referring to the practice that focusses on continuous improvement of processes in manufacturing, engineering, supporting business processes, and management. It is a philosophy that has already been successfully applied world-wide in the health care, psychotherapy life-coaching, government, banking and many other industries. “Kaizen refers to activities that continually improve all functions, and involves all employees from the CEO to the assembly line workers,” he said. “It also applies to all processes applied in a business sense. The format can be through an individual, a suggestion system, or via a small or large representative group.” Mr Markwell said the Toyota production system was based on the Kaizen principle, including gauging measurements against requirements, innovations to meet requirements and increase productivity, standardisation of new, improved operations, and ensuring these objectives went in a continuous cycle,

Mr Markwell said presentation of a Daruma Doll was serious busi-

for fulfillment of the Kaizen objectives. The second eye is painted when objectives have been reached, but Mr Markwell says that would signify perfection, and that’s on a pedestal that would be hard for any company to reach. Nonetheless, introduction of the

Kaizen philosophies has been put as one of the reasons for Toyota’s success world-wide. It is continually among the most profitable carmakers in the world, with around nine million units representing 70 different models being sold in 140 countries. Toyota makes or assembles cars in Japan, Australia, India, Sri Lanka, Canada, Indonesia, Poland, South Africa, Turkey, Columbia, the United Kingdom, France, Brazil, Portugal and more recently, Argentina, Czech Republic, Mexico, Malaysia, Thailand, Pakistan, Egypt, China, Vietnam, Venezuela, the Philippines and Russia. David Buttner is probably one of the busiest of the international executives, visiting as many Australian dealerships as he can every 12 months. He has visited Mildura twice since his appointment as Toyota’s senior executive director for sales and marketing in 2006. He has held various senior positions since joining the automotive industry 34 years ago, and on joining Toyota in 1987, has gained experience in manufacturing operations, production control, quality administration, production engineering and purchasing. In August last year David was voted the 9th most powerful person in Australian advertising as published in AdNews Magazine. Contributing to this was “a number of industry records illustrating his ability to take a strong product and turn it into a market-leading brand.” He said in Mildura he was committed to the guiding principles of “respect for people” and “continuous improvement,” principles that underpin Toyota’s global operations, and which work in well with the Kaizen philosophy.

As the legend goes... DARUMA, the Japanese Tumbling Doll, has an interesting history. Few people realise that Daruma was an actual person... the third Prince of a realm long, long ago. Sensing the meaninglessness of life despite being born to luxury, Daruma took up a life of meditation in the hope of moving beyond this vale of suffering and tears, and live a life bolstered by the strength of his convictions. Thus, Daruma is said to have sat, motionless, facing a wall for nine long years.

The features are an embodiment of the shape of Daruma carrying out this religious meditation. The red signifies the colour of religious clothes, and the round shape expresses happiness and completeness of society and family. This committed way of life reportedly lasted for more than 130 years, and Daruma’s teachings were later summed up as follows: “Don’t be afraid to take a tumble, as long as you get back on your feet again. Falling doesn’t hurt as long as you right your-

self once more. Do that and things can only get better. There is no reason to worry if one lives this way.” This teaching was later to develop into Zen Buddhism, with the message; It is alright to make mistakes, as long as you keep trying. This lesson is illustrated by the Daruma Doll, which always returns to the upright position if tipped over. In olden times, people tried to obtain this doll in the hope that they can rise an eighth time, even if they fall down seven times.

Rewards for motorists •  From Page 16

District police will be rewarding motorists who park their vehicles securely. During January, motorists who leave their vehicles locked with no valuables on display will be in line to receive a gift. Leading Senior Constable Mark Baumann said it was all about getting motorists to think about the security of their vehicles.” He said police would locate vehicles that have been parked securely with no valuable items on display, and a courtesy notice would then be placed on the vehicle, letting the driver know that because of their actions they may possibly receive a gift. “I know that most motorists in Mildura do the right thing and lock their vehicles every time it is parked,” he said. “But we need to encourage more motorists to lock their parked vehicles, and this is one way of doing that. This initiative is just a small incentive for motorists to do the right thing. “If more motorists ensure they lock their vehicles and make it difficult for thieves, then police should be able to reduce this type of crime even further.” Prizes such as free coffee vouchers and car accessories will be given to motorists during the month.

Safe partying Sunraysia residents have been urged to party safely over the following months, and register all their social functions with police. Party Safe is aimed at reducing the incidence of “gate-crashing” and other anti-social behaviour at parties and social functions. Leading Senior Constable Mark Baumann said there was no doubt everyone loves a good party, and the Party Safe initiative would assist in creating a safer environment. “With the school year finished and the Christmas and New Year celebrations getting ever closer, it is time again to remind residents who are considering holding a party to register at their local police station,” he said The Party Safe project involves hosts registering their parties with local police and adopting various crime prevention measures to assist in having a safe function. Party Safe kits will be given to hosts when they attend their police station to register their party. Police will maintain a Party Safe register and make contact with party hosts and if requested will patrol in the vicinity of the party where possible. Leading Senior Constable Baumann said the Party Safe register would allow police to tailor their resources and responses in a more efficient and effective manner. “I urge all party hosts to register their parties by simply attend-

CRIME BEAT ing at their local police station and completing the registration form,” he said. “This way we can all work towards enjoying ourselves over the next two months. The Party Safe project is a perfect example of partnership policing - with the community and police working together to ensure a safer Sunraysia. Tips for parents: • Drop your children off and arrange to pick them up at a certain time. This will discourage your children from congregating outside before or after the party and joining with others to create a nuisance. • Speak with the party host, or even better the host’s parents, to find out how many people will be at the party, if attendance is by invitation, whether there will be any food served, whether there will be alcohol provided and what time the party will finish. • Get the phone number of the house where the party is being held. Tips for hosts • If you are hosting the party, make it clear that entry is by invitation only - this will discourage gatecrashing. • Use your invitation to make the start and finish time clear. • Parental supervision or the presence of other adults will help keep trouble to a minimum. • If you don’t allow people to bring their own alcohol, it is easier to control the amount of alcohol that is served. • Advise your neighbours in advance of your function. • Plan what to do if a guest becomes sick or intoxicated. • Keep noise to a minimum. Locate speakers as far from neighbours as possible.

Early arrest Alfred Kelly was featured in a previous edition of Crime Beat. He was wanted for questioning over burglaries in the Mildura area. Kelly has now been apprehended and charged.

New Year - watch it! Operation NYE will be conducted in the central business district of Mildura over New Years Eve, with the aim of providing a high level of visible police presence. The operation will focus on preventing and detecting anti-social behavior with a view to reducing the

incidents of street offences and assaults, according to Inspector Simon Clemence of Mildura police. He said police from across the district would be operating out of the Mildura Police Station in uniform and plain clothes and will perform patrols within the Mildura CBD, licensed premises, Hugh King Drive and Nowingi Place, with the sole purpose of identifying trouble makers and apprehending offenders. “We want to make this a happy New Year for everyone who is behaving,” he said. “Anyone else will have a bad (and possibly expensive) start to the year.”

Fishers theft And finally, are requesting assistance in identifying a group of people who committed a burglary on Fishers IGA store at Merbein on December 16, stealing a quantity of alcohol. Footage from the store’s surveillance camera, ABOVE and BELOW, showing four people entering the store and taking alcohol. One is wearing quite distinctive clothing. Anyone who has information regarding the identity of these people is asked to contact Detective Senior Constable Steve Atkinson at Mildura CIU on 5018 5300 Crime Stoppers, anonymously if they wished, on 1800 333 000.

Experiencing culture and education on a global scale •  From Page 7 “I’m going with my mind very much open to the way Chinese businesses operate, and hopefully there will be some new ideas and initiatives I can learn, and bring back to Australia.” Alex said in addition to the sights, smells etc. that come with an overseas trip, he was also excited to take part in the Chinese education system. “Visiting culturally significant places like the Great Wall of China is certainly going to be a highlight, but experiencing the way students learn over there is probably what I’m looking forward to the most,” he said. Alyce, RIGHT, on the other hand will spend six months in Sweden, where she will continue studying a Bachelor of Nursing degree. It’s an incredible opportunity for the 21-year-old, with Sweden considered one of the most advanced medical countries in the world. “The techniques they use – and teach – are supposed to be really advanced,” Alyce said. “So it’s an incredible opportunity for me to be exposed to such a high standard. “At the same time I’ve always loved travelling to new places, experiencing new cultures, and meeting new people. “In that way this trip is very much a win-win for me.” Alyce, who is in her third year of study, said she would also look to incorporate trips to other parts of Europe during her “downtime.” “I think it will be like any other type of schooling, where we’ll certainly get the opportunity to have time off,” she said. “And hopefully I can get a bit more travelling under my belt.” Both Alyce and Alex said they were nervous about the language barriers involved with such a trip. “Languages are not my forte,” Alex said. “But at the same time I’m very lucky in the sense that most Chinese business students learn English to help with their studies.” Both students will rely of scholarships and financial

grants to assist with their travels, with Alex securing $1000 from the Study Abroad Office, while Alyce will receive a $3000 study grant through La Trobe, and a scholarship through the Royal College of Nursing. “Money is obviously something that deters a lot of country students from taking part in study abroad programs,” Alyce said. “The truth is that help is out there – students just need to know where to look.” La Trobe University communication officer, Rebecca Cameron, said she hoped more students would be inspired to study overseas on the back of Alyce and Alex’s experiences. “I think it’s great that our students have an opportunity to experience studying abroad,” she said. “These opportunities are open to all of our students, and it’s certainly something we encourage them to think about undertaking. “I’m sure both Alex and Alyce will benefit greatly from their trips, and get a new perspective on their respective fields.”

YOUTH: Crying out for holiday entertainment

School holiday fun for everyone young Young people struggling to cope with school holiday boredom need look no further than the Mildura Youth Centre for creative, fun and free activities this summer.

“Something exciting this summer will also be the Amazing Race challenge which would be a great activity for young people to get together with their friends and come along to.”

Mildura Rural City Council is putting on a series of activities for 12 to 18 year olds to get stuck in to come January.

An information session about Mildura’s FReeZA committee will also be held as part of the program, giving youth a chance to hear about the work other young people are doing to bring music events to our region.

Community Portfolio Councillor Vernon Knight said numbers for each activity were strictly limited so it was vital people got in early to avoid disappointment.

The summer school holiday program will culminate with a fantastic Splash Down at Ouyen Swimming Pool where young people can cool off and chill out with music and activities.

“The Youth Centre’s School Holiday programs are always very popular, because they not only give young people the chance to learn new skills and have fun, but also provide a chance for them to spend time with their friends and meet new people,” he said.

Cr Knight said people should contact the Mildura Youth Centre on 5018 8289 to register for the school holiday program and that parental permission was required for all activities. A detailed calendar of the school holiday program is available online at www.mildura.vic.gov.au/youth

This summer’s program runs from Monday 10 to Friday 21 January 2011 and highlights include a photography and film processing workshop at SuniTAFE, a cooking class at SMGT, first aid course and Teens Day.

2011 Kerbside Recycling Calendars Now Available 2011 kerbside recycling collection calendars are now available from Mildura Rural City Council. The calendars clearly indicate which weeks recycling will be collected in your street during the coming year and are a handy reminder of when residents should put their 240 litre recycling bins out for collection.

There are two different calendars available – orange and green, so it is important to ensure the colour of your 2011 calendar matches the colour of your 2010 calendar. Calendars are available to collect from Council’s Madden Avenue and Deakin Avenue Service Centres, the Mildura Landfill and online at www.mildura.vic.gov.au.

Mildura Weekly - 24/12/10

Matt Trinne Honda’s fire-breathing open-class 500cc two-stroke motocrosser, the CR500, was one of the most fearsome and respected motocross bikes of the 1980s and 1990s. Production of the CR500 ended just before the turn of the century, but it remains part of motocross folklore. American company, Service Honda, was determined to see the potent 500cc survive, and has been building hybrid bikes based around the powerplant and modern, state-of-the-art CRF chassis for several years. The result is a devastating combination of razor-sharp handling and blistering horsepower. One of the stand-out features of Service Honda’s work is how ‘factory-made’ the bike looks. For the uninitiated, there is little sign that the bike didn’t leave the Honda’s Japanese factory as you see it in these pictures. Aside from sourcing and modifying the CR500 powerplant, Service Honda also modify the standard CRF frame to accommodate the motor – mainly around the bottom and front sections. The standard wheel hubs are replaced with quality billet items, and a Pro Circuit exhaust system fitted. The radiators are also replaced with custom items. There has also been some secret engine work to boost the already potent 500cc’s output, taking it well past the 65-horsepower mark. And Sunraysia’s Matt Trinne is one of the few people in this country to own one of this rare breed, dubbed a 2004 CR500 AF. Matt has complemented Service Honda’s work by polishing the aluminium frame, swing arm and some of the engine casings. The sticker kit you see in these pictures came with the bike, however Matt plans to replace it with his own design in the near future to further enhance his machine.

AUSTRALIA has a new vehicle manufacturer that will assemble trucks under the CAT brand. Called NC2, the joint-venture between US truck giants Caterpillar and Navistar launched the world’s first CAT trucks at the base of Uluru in the Northern Territory. NC2 joint-venture product will be rolled out around the world from next year and in some countries will be branded as CAT, as in Australia, while other locations will use the International badge. Rather than use an existing truck dealership framework in Australia, NC2 will sell and service the new trucks through the existing Caterpillar network consisting of 50 outlets across the country that specialise in off-road equipment. The CAT operations currently sell and service everything from big mining dump trucks to excavators, skid steer loaders and engines, but their facilities have been upgraded and its staff specially trained for looking after on-highway truck customers. As well as its dealer network, Caterpillar also provides engines, at least initially, and the

These CAT engines will be replaced by a Navistardeveloped unit that uses a CAT block and a MAN engine currently used by Navistar in the US. Iveco sold between 200 and 250 International trucks a year and NC2 president Al Saltiel said at the CAT trucks global launch in central Australia he was sure the new operation would exceed that. The CAT dealership network consists of Hastings Deering (Queensland and the Northern Territory), Cavpower (South Australia), William Adams (Victoria and Tasmania) and the massive WesTrack group, which recently merged with the Channel Seven media operation at the behest of majority shareholder Kerry Stokes and will look after Western Australia, New South Wales and the ACT. The two CAT models available at launch are the CT610, which is rated to 57 tonnes, and the CT630, which is rated to 90 tonnes as an on-highway road train.

CAT brand, which has a strong presence in Australia. Navistar will essentially provide the rest of the trucks, which are based on existing International models, and from next year will also provide engines. Fiat-owned Iveco, which took over the old International Harvester facility at Dandenong in 1992, produced International trucks locally until Navistar ended the licensing agreement early this year. Iveco Trucks Australia Ltd will continue to produce Iveco trucks at the Dandenong factory. NC2 is now assembling two new models at a Caterpillar facility at Tullamarine, next to the Western Ring Road in the northwest suburbs of Melbourne. The assembly line is located in an old loader production plant that already had a functioning paint shop. Most of the truck parts are supplied from the US, with the frames coming from Mexico. Unspecified delays meant the launch was delayed from June until late last month and workers have been rushing to build up to 400 trucks before the end of the year because the C13 and C15 CAT engines do not meet new ADR83/03 truck emission standards that come

By TERRY MARTIN FIVE months after confirming that a 1 Series M Coupe was in the works, BMW has released full details of the smallest ever model to emerge from its highperformance M GmbH division – a pocket rocket that is almost as fast, and promises to be every bit as entertaining, as the blistering M3. To make its in-the-metal debut at next month’s Detroit motor show, the 1 Series M Coupe will hit Australia in the third quarter next year in limited numbers (100 units for 2011), priced from around $100,000 – $45,000 less than the M3 sedan, which is the current entry point for the Munich marque’s M cars, and some $15,000 clear of the 135i Sport Coupe. As expected, BMW has equipped the 1 M – as opposed to the M1, BMW’s 1978-1981 mid-engined supercar – with the 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged directinjection ‘N54’ straight-six engine already used in the Z4 sDrive35is roadster, which is the first time a standard production powerplant has been seen in the bona fide M collection. Producing 250kW at 5900rpm (but revving to “well over” 7000rpm) and 450Nm from 1500-4500rpm (with an overboost function increasing torque to 500Nm for short bursts under full acceleration), the engine drives the rear wheels through a newly developed six-speed manual gearbox and can send the 1495kg (unladen) two-door, four-seat 1 Series M from 0-100km/h in a claimed 4.9 seconds. This is just one tenth of a second slower than the heavier 1605kg (kerb weight) M3 sedan, which packs in a natural-breathing

M ONE: It’s not a successor to the original M1, but the 1 Series M Coupe will still be one that redefines BMW M cars, with M3-rivalling acceleration and a host of M-specific engineering and design features. 309kW/400Nm 4.0-litre V8 engine, and quite a bit quicker than the 1525kg (kerb) 135i Sport Coupe, which uses a less powerful 225kW/400Nm version of the same 2979cc twin-turbo inline-six and is claimed to reach 100km/h from standstill in 5.3 seconds.

and “needs-based control” of auxiliary units, which are part of BMW’s EfficientDynamics program, have taken the M brand below 10L/100km for the first time, with the 1 M Coupe’s official combined fuel consumption rated at 9.6L/100km (the 135i Sport manages 8.5L/100km). CO2

BMW quotes 17.3 seconds from 0-200km/h for the 1 M, with top speed limited to 250km/h. Brake energy regeneration

emissions come in 224g/ km. The broader, lower stance of the 1 Series M compared to the 135i Coupe – overall

width increases 55mm to 1803mm – reflects the chassis engineering work undertaken with BMW’s baby M, with a wider front and rear track (now 1541mm at each end, compared to 1470/1497mm) and the ride height now 12mm closer to the tarmac. The M retains the 1 Series’ double-pivot springstrut front and five-link rear suspension design, although the aluminium content has increased significantly, unique axle supports are included, the electronic differential lock is now M-specific, the electronic stability control includes an intervention threshold-raising M Dynamic Mode (MDM), the rack-and-pinion steering is fitted with the Servotronic hydraulic system, and the brakes are upgraded to M3 level, with inner-vented and perforated M-specific discs with a 360/350mm front/rear diameter, each with a single piston floating calliper.

FG XR6 U Ute! te! The sporting flavour is further enhanced with a driverselectable M Drive mode, which increases engine responsiveness. The wheel and tyre combinations also go up a notch, with standard 19-inch M light alloy rims in a Y-spoke design, wrapped in 245/35-section tyres at the front and 265/35 rubber behind. Par for the course are ABS brakes, an anti-slip control function (ASC), dynamic brake control (DBC), cornering brake control (CBC), a so-called ‘drive-off assistant’, and antifade and dry brake functions designed to further improve stopping performance. Exterior modifications reflect the car’s M membership and the chassis work underneath, with the wheelarches heavily flared to accommodate the wider track width and the front apron optimised for improved aerodynamics. The latter includes three large air intakes and what BMW calls “air curtains” – vertical ducts on the outer sections of the lower airdam that are designed to channel inflowing air around the front wheelarches, covering the side the front wheels like a

curtain and thereby reducing turbulence. The front end also carries bi-Xenon headlights, while the flanks have modified sills and reshaped aero-optimised wing mirrors designed in the same format as the M3. The rear is also defined by the wider wheelarches, with other reference points including M quad chrome tailpipes and more aero elements in the form of a redesigned bumper and subtle bootlid spoiler. Inside, the 1 M has the expected array of M features, including a unique instrument panel, M leather multi-function steering wheel, M pedals and door sill inserts, and heavily bolstered Boston leather front bucket seats with black surfaces, orange stitching and the M logo embossed

into the headrests. The dark theme continues with anthracite-coloured roof lining and dark Alcantara trim applied to other areas such as the door panels, also with orange stitching. This contrast stitching is likewise applied to the handbrake lever and the short M gearshifter. O t h e r s t a n d a r d features on the 1 Series M Coupe include dual-zone climatecontrol air-conditioning, sixspeaker MP3-compatible stereo, six airbags, headlight cleaners, rain-sensing windscreen wipers and automatic headlights, while the usual high number of options will be available, spanning audio, communications, navigation, and more. Exterior paint finishes are limited to just three colours:

an ‘exclusive’ Valencia Orange metallic, Sapphire Black metallic and Alpine White non-metallic. Although it resisted slapping the M badge on the Z4 sDrive35is, BMW describes its motivation behind creating a bona fide 1 Series M – and going beyond the 135i M Sport package – as “paving the way for younger target groups to be able to access the hallmark driving experience offered by an M car”. “The letter M now comes to the segment of the BMW 1 Series to symbolise outstanding power delivery and the highly dynamic driving properties of a highperformance sportscar,” the company said. “The technology of a highperformance car is combined with the agility and lightness of a compact model to create a whole new dimension of sports-style driving pleasure. “With this two-door model, BMW M GmbH is now realising for the first time in this vehicle class its concept of racing-oriented performance characteristics in a car developed for everyday use.”

AQUARIUS

You’re enjoying the limelight this week, but this also brings a need to exercise great responsibility. If you’re in everyone’s sight and people are saying the right things about you, you really have nothing to worry about. Problems may arise if you do something embarrassing at an office party or business dinner. Remember that everyone is watching you! Mercury is retrograde, so be good. You can be the life and soul of every occasion!

Congratulations to the October recipient of the Tankard Dental and Mildura Weekly Young Achiever Award, Derek Hung. Derek was recognised for his achievements in mathematics, which includes strong performances participating in both State and national maths competitions. Derek accepted a plaque, and $200, from Tankard Dental receptionist Amanda Morello for his efforts. NO. 2164 1

If you’ve been looking for love, this could be the week when the chemistry comes together and something very exciting happens. The Full Moon in Gemini kick-starts the process on Tuesday. You could feel more emotional. You will be geared up for a few days of fun and excitement, especially with all those holiday parties going on. As Mercury is retrograde, watch out for mixed signals. Be very clear. Don’t be tempted to overeat over the weekend. Early in the week there’s a possibility you will feel rather tired and slightly jaded with the whole love scene. Perhaps you feel like taking a couple of days to be on your own. You could decide to tell a certain person how you feel and how he or she fits into your life. But you could become too sentimental and overly dramatic. Make sure you know what you’re doing. Don’t do anything you may regret later

There is a Full Moon in Gemini on Tuesday, making this a very promising time for a party or lively outing with friends. The Sun gradually moves to conjunct Pluto, and this is going to make you very determined to say it like it is. Whether it’s positive or negative, you will feel the need to speak out. One of the big areas affected by this is friendships, so be careful of jealousy when hosting or attending a party.

Relax and take it easy. You may have developed a strategy to get through this holiday week unscathed, but beware, as things may not go as planned. This has its upside. There are surprises in store for you, and some of them might be more fun than anything you could have devised yourself. You are more than happy to invite your extended family over for the big day, but stay off any topic that threatens to turn into a major argument.

Who am I?

Born August 29th, 1958, I am recognized as the most successful entertainer of all time according to the Guinness World Records. My first foray into entertaining came as one fifth of a band including my older brothers. After great success, I set out on my own to forge a phenomenal career as a solo artist, recording song such as ‘Thriller’ and ‘Billie Jean’. Shortly after announcing my final tour, I died suddenly of suspicious circumstances on June 25th, 2009. Who am I?

You may have the urge to shop, especially when there’s a Full Moon in Gemini on Tuesday, which is going to bring out the need to nurture and pamper yourself. Purchase things you really want rather than expensive junk. If you’re buying last-minute presents, keep the receipts. The holidays could be rather intense, and it certainly won’t help to start an argument or sulk. Your smile can light up a room - let it make this season special.

LEO

When the Sun conjuncts Pluto, be extra careful because there could be explosive arguments or passionate displays. Obsession and love go hand in hand with this aspect, which may cause more problems than you really need right now. Don’t be pressured into doing anything you don’t want to do, and don’t try to pressure anyone else. Go with the flow and try to snatch a kiss under the mistletoe. This holiday week will be one to remember!

6. Who is a bat in Jungle Book?

There could appear to be changes and reversals to your holiday schedule this week, but that doesn’t mean you should worry about it. Mercury retrograde squares Uranus and sextiles Neptune on Monday, which suggests that any plans that seemed set in stone probably aren’t. Your social life looks wonderful and could be the highlight of the days ahead. The Full Moon on Tuesday encourages you to focus on spiritual matters. It may bring powerful dreams, so watch out for them.

This is going to be a very interesting holiday week full of surprises. The Full Moon in Gemini on Tuesday may bring a touch of drama and magic to your social life and give you a desire to talk about anything and everything. Mercury is still retrograde, which isn’t so bad if everything is winding down and you’ve completed all you intended to do. But it could be a problem if you’re still in the thick of the holiday action.

The Full Moon on Tuesday will enrich the entire week with a burst of creativity, so use it well. It also means that relationships with certain clients or work colleagues may be more focused. You may have more dealings with them than usual and any business you’re working on may come to fruition. Do be mindful of Mercury retrograde. Don’t sign anything important until after New Year’s. The Christmas weekend will be packed with festive fun.

The week holds a lot of promise, but you can also mess it up if you react rather than take hold of the reins and be more proactive. The Full Moon in Gemini on Tuesday may mean that you get rather emotional when it comes to certain relationships. Be especially careful if you’re attending any festive office parties. Try not to embarrass yourself. This is especially important if you’re in a managerial position. Maintain your suave sophistication!

THE Mildura Franchisee of Hungry Jack’s has signed on as naming rights partner of leading Top Fuel drag racing team Darren Morgan Racing. 
 Hungry Jack’s Mildura will partner the local racer for Willowbank Raceway’s New Year Series (Round One) and the Perth Motorplex’s Top Fuel event in January – rounds three and four of the ANDRA Pro Series Championship. 
 The naming rights arrangement is an extension of a 12 month partnership between the two parties. 
 Morgan (RIGHT) said he couldn’t wait to get the new-look Hungry Jack’s Mildura Darren Morgan Racing Top Fuel Dragster onto the Willowbank quarter-mile for its debut. 
 “Everyone at Darren Morgan Racing is really excited about welcoming Hungry Jack’s Mildura on board as a naming rights sponsor,” said Morgan, the current Top Fuel championship leader. 
 “We have had a relationship with them for the past 12 months, with Hungry Jack’s burgers supplied for our Thursday crew nights amongst other things. “With the Jim Read Racing team and their sponsorship, I guess there

is a bit of a burger war developing in Top Fuel, but competition is always a good thing and we will certainly be doing everything we can to keep the Hungry Jack’s Mildura Top Fuel dragster to the top spot this January.” 
 Hungry Jacks National Marketing Director Jim Wilson said Hungry Jack’s Australia was excited to see franchisees supporting local identities and spreading the Hungry Jack’s name on national activities. “We wish the Morgan team all the best,” he said. 


Hungry Jack’s Mildura franchise owner Greg Stephens said the company was proud to have local businesses waving the flag for Mildura across Australia. 
 “In these hard times there is not a lot of sponsorship money around, and we consider sponsoring Darren Morgan Racing to be a solid investment,” he said. 
 “It is local people like Darren and his team who continually promote Mildura all over Australia and the world, which in turn brings tourists to Mildura and to us at Hungry Jacks.” In addition to the Hungry Jack’s imagery, Darren’s Top Fuel dragster will also feature signage for Mildura Tourism, with the website for Visit Mildura www.visit-mildura.com.au to be positioned at the front wheels.
 In addition to the ANDRA Pro Series rounds at Willowbank Raceway and the Perth Motorplex, the new livery will also be seen at the Mildura Easter Powersports event at Mildura Sunset Strip, and at other selected shows in Sunraysia during 2011. 
 Hungry Jack’s has been in Australia for nearly 40 years, and is in every State, with a total of 340 stores.

Save our kids plea goes out ONE in five children will leave primary school this year without the basic skills to swim the length of an Olympic pool, and save themselves from drowning, according to the Royal Life Saving Society of Australia. The society’s CEO Rob Bradley says the issue is of grave concern, as up to 50,000 youngsters Australia-wide will leave primary school without being able to demonstrate the basic survival and water safety techniques that could save their lives in an emergency. He said latest figures showed that five percent of all drowning deaths were children aged five to 14 – and 80 percent are male. “Parents must be aware that rates of drowning rise rapidly once children gain independence and venture further from supervised swimming locations such as the local pool,” he said. The Royal Life Saving Society has warned that the issue has become “a ticking time bomb” that will impact families and communities across the country in years to come, as well as putting further pressure on drowning rates. Mr Bradley says thousands of Australian school children are going through

primary schools learning little no or basic water safety skills. He says parents make a false assumption that secondary schools will fill this gap, and that many children are falling between the cracks altogether because many secondary schools now don’t teach swimming, water safety and lifesaving as a skill. He has called for a greater focus on swimming and water safety skills, and says that although 15 million Australian children have successfully completed Royal Life Saving

“Swim and Survive” programs since 1980, this figure will need to increase to one million children a year in response to the problem. The society’s 2010 report reveals the number of drowning deaths is the highest number at any time in the past seven years, with 314 deaths. This was an increase of 20 percent in two years. The Royal Life Saving 2010 National Drowning Report shows that 56 children aged under 17 years drowned in Australia in 2009/2010, with 80 per-

cent being male. Mr Bradley says the increase in drowning in school aged children is a wake up call to all Australians about the critical need for water safety education. In the five to 14 year old category, 15 children drowned, accounting for five percent of all drowning deaths. Most were male. In the 10 to 14 year old category most swimming deaths happened in lakes, dams and lagoons, rivers, creeks or streams, and 86 percent happened during summer.

Brad Eaton returning to Swallows nest By VINNIE RODI

•  RETURNING CHAMPION: Former Irymple Football Club coach, and two-time McLeod medallist, Brad Eaton, right, will return to the club next season. Photo courtesy of The Border Mail.

IRYMPLE Football and Netball Club supporters could be forgiven for thinking Christmas has come a day early this week, with former coach, premiership player and McLeod medallist Brad Eaton announcing his return to the club in 2011. The 27-year-old told the Mildura Weekly his return to the Swallows was virtually a “sure thing,” with his signing to be finalised in midJanuary. “My main focus at the moment is getting the family organised to make the move back to Sunraysia in a couple of weeks time, and then once I’m back in Sunraysia I’ll sit down with the club and make it official,” Eaton said. “As far as I’m concerned I’ll be lining up in Irymple colours next year, it’s just a matter of formally putting pen to paper.” Eaton’s signing will be a major boost for the 2010 Sunraysia Football and Netball League runners-up, who are desperate to inject some experience into their young line-up. A side that was outplayed in the final quarter of the 2010 SFNL Grand Final against Robinvale, the Swallows will be looking to draw on Eaton’s vast experience to go a step further in 2011. “I’ve been following the club over the past two seasons, and they’ve achieved some great results,” Eaton said. “It was a great effort last year by

the boys to make it to the Grand Final, and from all reports there’s a promising group of young players currently representing the club at the senior level. “I’m looking forward to working with the group, and helping out in whatever way possible, and playing my part in helping the club reach another Grand Final in 2011.” Currently residing in Lavington, NSW – where he has been representing the Lavington Football Club – Eaton said his return to Sunraysia had been motivated by a job opportunity. “The move has certainly been instigated because of work, and after that was finalised it seemed only natural that I would continue my football career with Irymple,” he said. “To be honest a couple of other clubs did approach me, but it was always going to be Irymple.” Eaton has enjoyed a solid two years since leaving Irymple at the end of the 2008 season winning a premiership, and featuring strongly for Lavington this year. Eaton said apart from some slight hamstring problems, he was raring to go. “I’m really looking forward to joining the club for pre-season training in the new year, and the body feels really good at the moment,” he said. Newly appointed Irymple coach David Byrnes said the club was stoked to welcome ‘Roo’ back to the club. “Brad is a quality player, and

it’s going to be pretty handy having someone of his experience in our group,” he said. “He’s an age-group player that we’ve been missing, and fills a big gap at the club. “As a two-time McLeod medallist, a utility player, and someone the younger boys can certainly look up too, it’s great having him back.” Byrnes said that while he was yet to officially sit down and discuss what role Eaton would play in the Swallows 2011 campaign, he had a few ideas in mind. “He’ll certainly be added to the leadership group, acting as a mentor to some of the younger boys,” he said. Brynes said that news of Eaton’s return was slowly starting to make its way around the club, with the response positive. “Everyone is extremely happy to have him back, and I’m personally looking forward to working with him in the New Year,” he said. FOOTNOTE: In other Irymple news, Swallows big man Aaron Baynes received an early Christmas present this week, told he no longer required a knee reconstruction – an injury that would have seen him miss the majority of the 2011 season. He is expected to be fit for Round One. Former coach Donato DeAngelis will also be ready and raring to go, after undergoing an ankle reconstruction.

Mildura Weekly - 24/12/10

www.milduraweekly.com.au

Declan swims towards national title berth FIVE local swimmers have recently returned from the Victorian Swimming Championships, with Declan Forster, 12, proving the most successful of the bunch. Held at the Melbourne Aquatic Centre from December 17 to December 22, Declan won an incredible two gold (50m and 100m Freestyle), two silver (100m Backstroke and 200m Individual Medley), and one bronze (100m Butterfly) at the event. His results were enough to gain qualification into the 2011 National Championships – to be held next April in Adelaide – across three events; the 50m and 100m Freestyle, and the 100m Backstroke. Declan said he was extremely happy with his performance, and was looking forward to the challenges the National Titles would present. “I’ve been training pretty hard for the past few months in the lead-up to the State titles, and I’m really happy to walk away with five medals – and a chance to compete at my first National Championships,” he said. “Competing at Nationals is going to be completely different to States – or any other meet I’ve swam at – and it’s going to be a real challenge, and an experience I’m looking forward to.” Declan said he, along with his team mates, had dedicated four to five days a week training in the lead-up to the event, with sessions running anywhere from one to two hours. He also spent time in the gym, building up strength, with a 10 centimetre growth spurt in the past 12 months also a major factor. It’s a regime that helped Declan achieve three National Championship qualifying times, coming into the wall at 27.53 seconds in the 50m Freestyle,

• GOING FOR GOLD: Local swimming sensation Declan Forster with the five medals he won at the recent Victorian State Swimming Championships, RIGHT, and in action ABOVE. 59.38 seconds in the 100m Freestyle (Country record), and 1.09.17 in the 100m Backstroke. He said the next few months in the lead-up to Nationals would be dedicated to future events, and to training, with Declan’s mindset on performing at his best. “To be honest I’m not expecting too much at the National Championships,” he said. “All the swimmers are going to

be incredibly talented, and it’s going to be really tough. “My main goal at the moment is to qualify for the final in each of my events, and then just see how I go from there.” Fellow local swimmers Layne Tankard, Demmi Andriske, Noah Valentich and Alex Clark also competed at the State Championships, with Layne going on to qualify for a number of finals.

Fast bowlers to join big hitters in Willowfest contest THE annual Willowfest Australian Cricket Club Championships will return for its 29th year in 2010, with the competition – which sees teams from across the country vie for a share of $10,000 – to be better than ever. The Championships will be held between Monday, December 27 and Thursday, December 30, with teams from across Australia set to compete. Competition will be spread across five grades – Cup Grade, AGrade, B-Grade C-Grade and Women’s – with teams to play three oneday matches (50 overs per side) and two Twenty/20 games. Prizemoney will go to the top four teams in each grade. In addition to prizemoney for

teams, a first-of-its-kind individual honour will also be up for grabs in 2010, with the cricketer judged the best player of this year’s Championships to be the first recipient of the inaugural Charlie Haeusler Award. Named after the founder of the Championships, Charlie Haeusler (dec.), Willowfest president Anthony Telfer said the award was a fitting tribute to a man who helped launch the event 30 years ago. Charlie’s wife Leonie will be in attendance to present the inaugural award after the final day of competition, with the presentation to take place at the Mildura Working Man’s Club. In addition to regular competition, a number of new attractions have been added to the four-day

event, with a ‘fastest bowler competition’ to be held alongside the popular Tankard Dental Willowfest Whack. The event will run in partnership with Victoria Police on Tues-

Your driving force!

day, December 29, with a radar speed gun to be used to help measure bowling speeds. All Sunraysia Cricket Association clubs have been invited to submit entrants, with the title of fastest bowler in the region to be up for grabs. Entry will be free, with the competition to be open to all local players and visitors, with local players like Tim Smith, Shane Trinick, Matthew Brooks and Dan Wood all likely starters. The Willowfest Whack – considered a highlight of the championships – will also return in an effort to find the biggest ‘whacker’ in the country. Cost will be $10, with entrants to be joined by a ‘tosser’ and ‘catch-

er.’ Entrants will be given three attempts, with 10 bonus metres to be granted if the ‘catcher’ successfully hangs on to the ball.

Leigh Adams Testimonial one for the history books

57

By BEN PISCIONERI THE field is locked in, the tickets will soon be on sale and the very best speedway riders in the world, both past and present, will soon begin arriving in Sunraysia for what is expected to be the biggest speedway meeting ever held in the district. Hype surrounding the Coomealla Memorial Sporting Club Leigh Adams Testimonial, which will be held on Wednesday, January 5, has been steadily building since the event was first announced many months ago. It’s now at fever pitch with less than two weeks before the big event, which will be held at Olympic Park Speedway. Tickets to Leigh’s Testimonial dinner, to be held at the Coomealla Memorial Sporting Club the night before the meeting, have already sold out as speedway fans snapped up the opportunity to dine with some of the biggest names in the sport, including Leigh himself and six-time world champion Tony Rickardsson. Tickets for the event itself will be available for pre-sale at the Olympic Park Speedway complex from 10am to 12pm on both Tuesday, January 4 and Wednesday, January 5. Leigh said this week the hard work over the past few months organising the event was finally starting to show. “It’s kind of real now,” he said. “After so much work from both myself and my family, plus the Club and our local sponsors, which have been fantastic. “At the moment it’s a bit of relief to be honest, as we’ve spent the past month putting it together

• MASTER BLASTER: Leigh Adams demonstates his trademark style at Olympic Park. Photo: GLENN MILNE. and it’s finally starting to show.” Leigh said the majority of riders, particularly the international riders, would begin arriving after Christmas. He said there would also be a large number of international

personnel attending, many of whom have been connected to his international racing efforts over the years. The 16-rider main solo field reads like a who’s who of international speedway racing.

Together they’ve amassed a plethora of State, Australian and World Speedway championships. There will also be several special on-track guests on the night. They will include Phil Crump,

who was probably one of the most influential figures in Leigh’s early career and six-time world champion, the aforementioned Tony Rickardsson. Leigh said it was important to ensure there was also a strong junior program, in reference to how he started his career. It will includes riders from throughout Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales. Next month’s meeting won’t be Leigh’s first Testimonial. He has already had Testimonials in both England and Poland, providing a chance for his many thousands of international fans to celebrate his career. His English Testimonial, in 2002, attracted more than 3500 people. His Polish Testimonial in 2006 brought more than 8000 people through the turnstiles. Leigh’s farewell meeting in Poland meanwhile attracted a massive 15,000-strong crowd, illustrating the popularity and respect he commands on the international stage. Tickets to the meeting on January 5 will be $28 for adults and $15 for children. There will be free entry for children under 12.

Speedway’s ‘master and apprentice’ ONE of the most influential figures in Leigh Adams’ career, particularly his early career, was Australia’s other legendary speedway rider, Phil Crump. Phil had returned from England and was nearing the end of his racing career as Leigh was coming through the junior and senior ranks at Mildura. Phil said he could see a lot of himself in Leigh’s style, even as a junior. “When he was a junior you could see that he’d picked up a lot from me in his riding,” Phil said from his Queensland home this week. “This was because, back then, there were a lot more meetings in Mildura, 12 or 13 meetings a year back then. “Everyone knew everyone and watched each other race a lot more, so the younger riders could pick up a lot, it was just because of the sheer amount of racing that was happening. “Then, when he was in the senior ranks, we would travel together a lot and, you know, you’re in a car travelling from Mil-

dura to Brisbane or Alice Springs, and you talk a lot, share a lot of racing information.” While he takes some credit for moulding Leigh’s riding during his earlier years, Phil said Leigh’s natural talent was clearly evident, even as a very young rider. “Even in juniors you could tell he had a special style to him,” Phil said. “He was always very smooth, but also very fast. He was like that in juniors and carried it through into the seniors. “A lot of riders can look good, look smooth, but not many look good on the track and are fast, but Leigh’s got both. “Then when he came to England with me, he was just good instantly.” It was with Phil that Leigh first got his chance to impress on English soil. “I’d actually finished racing in England, but I was doing some meetings in America, however we went to England for a month or so,” he recalled. “He came with us and I remember everybody

• Leigh Adams prepares to sweep under his opposition during one of his 10 Australian Solo Championship wins. Photo: GLENN MILNE. that saw him ride saw that there was something different to him compared to the other blokes, and the rest is history.” Phil still remembers racing against him in the senior ranks at Mildura before Leigh set sail for international stardom. “I enjoyed racing against him,” he said. “At the time though, it was like in any sport, a young bloke’s coming

through, I was at the end of my career. You know its inevitably going to happen, but you can’t make it easy for him,” Phil said of the ‘changing of the guard’. Phil says he sees the same thing now in England. “The same thing happens now. When I speak to some of the young blokes in England, they complain, ‘Leigh’s giving

me hard time’, but it’s like 20 years ago when Leigh was a young bloke, and look what he achieved.” Phil said his own son, three-time world champion Jason Crump, learnt a lot from watching, and racing, Leigh. He said Jason was still in juniors when Leigh was charging through the senior ranks and would often watch Leigh on-track. Phil will complete sev-

eral parade laps throughout Leigh’s Testimonial meeting on a bike that changed the face of solo speedway racing world wide. It was a bike Phil, Neil Street and Ivan Tighe designed and built based around the very first fourvalve head on a Jawa speedway bike. It was a bike that revolutionised solo speedway engines and made them what they are today. Phil still remembers its debut in 1975. “We got it together on a Thursday night and went to the Australian championships in Sydney that weekend and won it,” he said. The bike enabled Phil to smash three seconds from the lap record at the track almost instantly. He then took it to England where he placed third in the World in 1976. He campaigned that same bike unil the mid1980s. Phil has kept the bike ever since, and Leigh’s Testimonial will be it’s first foray back onto the race track since his retirement.

Mildura Weekly - 24/12/10

‘Rolling thunder’ on its way MILDURA’S Timmis Speedway will host its biggest sprintcar meeting in more than five years in just two weeks time. The inaugural 2011 Inland Cranes Sprintcar Scorcher will be held on January 12 and feature some of the quickest drivers in the nation. Three-time Australian Sprintcar champion Brooke Tatnell and American ace Tyler Walker were confirmed two weeks ago among a host of top-tier drivers and teams. They’ll be joined by reigning Australian Sprintcar champion, and the sports youngest ever national champion, 21-year-old James McFadden, who is the latest signing in what is shaping up to be one of the biggest sprintcar events in Australia outside of the World Series Sprintcars. McFadden became the sport’s youngest ever Australian Sprintcar champion when he clinched the victory at Darwin’s Hidden Valley Speedway earlier this year. Since then he’s been blisteringly fast and a consistent top-five runner in the main events he’s contested, and is currently placed fifth in the 2010 World Series Sprintcars. Local hopes meanwhile include Col Beasley, who is back in action again after a lengthy layoff, and Terry Kelly. The Sprintcar Scorcher program will kick off with a meet-and-greet night at O’Malley’s Irish Tavern on Tuesday January 11, providing a chance for fans to meet all the drivers and inspect some of their machines. Organisers are expecting about 25 sprintcars to take part in the meeting which will be held over two rounds of heats, a pole shuffle and an A and B final. The headlining sprintcar action will be broken up throughout the night by some of Australia’s quickest Modified and Street Stock Sedans. Mildura Speedway Drivers Club spokesman, Ange Halacas, said spectators could expect an action-packed night of racing that was expected to wrap up by about 10.30pm.

• WINNING WAYS: Three-time Australian Sprintcar Champion Brooke Tattnel, pictured in action ABOVE, will compete in the inaugural Inland Cranes Sprintcar Scorcher on January 12. He will be joined by James McFadden, INSET, who recently became the youngest Australian Sprintcar champion at 21.

Young cricketers to play on the MCG A GROUP of aspiring young cricketers will enjoy the experience of a lifetime this Sunday, as they join hundreds of Milo Cricket participants at the MCG for the Boxing Day Ashes Test between Australia and England. The group – all from Mildura Settlers Cricket Club – will have the chance to take part in Milo Cricket activities on the MCG during the first day’s lunch break. A total of 10 youngsters will make the trip to Melbourne, accompanied by parents and two local coordinators, with Mildura Settlers Cricket Club’s Shane Noonan saying excitement levels were high. “This initiative is something Cricket Australia runs every year as part of the Boxing Day Test,” he

said. “And we were lucky enough to be one of the few groups to be invited this year. “It’s going to be an amazing opportunity for these kids to actually get the chance to run out onto the MCG, and play cricket on one of the best grounds in the world. “All of them are extremely excited to get down to Melbourne.” All local participants will also attend the opening day of the Test – free of charge – getting an opportunity to see their Australian heros in action live. FOOTNOTE: Numbers are still being finalised, with confirmed participants to include Mason Fitzgerald, Josh and Liam Goss, Oliver Sharman, Ethan Lane, and Lydia and Eli Alabaster.
