What a card FAST approaching the festive season, it is timely that one of our regular readers brought these unusual Christmas ‘cards’ to our attention. We thought their uniqueness is certainly worth sharing. They are all much smaller than the cards we know today, with two dating back to around 1916,

and the other some time in the 1930s. A ‘compliments of the season’ 1916/17 (right) bears the Union Jack and Naval flags, even though the card is Australian-based, and another (middle) is a straight-forward but intricate Christmas card that originated from the ship HMAS Australia, linked to Britain’s Grand Fleet.

It’s the one on the left that is the most intriguing, showing a hanging basket of flowers swinging below the German Swastika. What’s interesting is that inside the card, embossed with a lot of attention to detail, is the fact that the card was published “by appointment to their Majesties, the King and Queen.”

IT’S the year 1909…100 years ago…how are these for a few statistics from the USA. The average life expectancy was 47. Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub. Only eight percent of homes had a telephone. The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.

A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year, a dentist $2500, a veterinarian between $1500 and $4000, and a mechanical engineer about $5000 per year. More than 95 percent of all births took place at home. Ninety percent of all doctors had no college education! Sugar cost four cents a pound. Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen, and coffee was fifteen cents a pound. Most women only washed their hair once a month, and used Borax or egg yolks for shampoo. Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their country for any reason. Five leading causes of death were: Pneumonia and influenza, Tuberculosis, diarrhea, heart disease and stroke. The American flag had 45 stars. The population of Las Vegas, Nevada, was only 30! Crossword puzzles, canned

beer, and ice tea hadn’t been invented. There was no Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. Two out of every 10 adults couldn’t read or write. Only six percent of all Americans had graduated from high school... Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at the local corner drugstores. Back then pharmacists said; ‘Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind, regulates the stomach and bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health.’ Eighteen percent of households had at least one full-time servant or domestic help. There were about 230 reported murders in the entire USA. And have a think about this…someone sent it us without typing it themselves. And it will be sent to others all over the world - all in a matter of seconds! Try to imagine what it may be like in another 100 years.

Mildura Show THE annual Mildura Show is back for another year, with three days and nights of fun, rides, cake competitions, art shows, animal nursery and everything else you’d expect to kick off next Thursday, October 15 at the Mildura Showgrounds on 12th Street. Entry is $18 for adults, $10 for concession card holders and $5 for children.

CALL 131 74992 THE Sunraysia Steam Preservation Society (SSPS) is looking for new members to ensure the historic Tangyes Pumps at Psyche Bend remain open to visitors and the community. The 120-year-old pumps are lovingly maintained and operated by a small but dedicated group of members, but more are needed to ensure the running of the Psyche Pumps is a tradition that can continue for decades to come. Society vice president Peter Wharton said this week the majority of the 17 to 20 members are aged between 60 and 70, with only one or two under that age. “We’re looking for some younger members so that we can train them up to become engineers,” Mr Wharton said. “Anyone who’s retired and is willing to come down here and help out. SSPS performs a range of tasks as part of its role as caretaker and operator of the historic pumps. At least one member must be on hand each Tuesday and Thursday for the many tourist visits to the site. There were more than 20 visitors on Tuesday this

“We’re looking for some younger members so that we can train them up to become engineers.” – Peter Wharton week alone. Mr Wharton said there would also be restoration work on additional machinery and maintenance on the existing pumps and boiler. He said new members would not only bolster the ranks of the Society, but provide a chance for people to up-skill. “We’ve got two or three very qualified engineers that could teach them,” Mr Wharton said. “We’ve got people here who could teach them up to steam and engineers certificate.” He explained that a steam ticket, which must be obtained outside the district, was needed to operate the pumps. “They can certainly work on the pumps, but when it’s got steam up and going, you have to

have an A-grade engineers certificate to drive the engine,” Mr Wharton said. “And you have to have a firstclass steam ticket to operate the boiler.” Both of which could be studied under the guidance of existing members. Mr Wharton said new members were also needed to ensure the future expansion of the pumps. “We’ve got another boiler we’re in the process of restoring and putting back together,” he said. “We’ve got a steam traction ploughing engine that we want to restore, but we just haven’t got the manpower and time to do it. “If someone was interested there’s quite a bit of work they can do.” It’s also an opportunity to work on some of the most unique machinery in Victoria – there are very few pumps like the Tangyes that still exist in the State. The pumps are 120 years old and were designed by George Chaffey. Mr Wharton said unless a fresh injection of members was

forthcoming it could ultimately mean the pumps would have to be closed to the public. “If we aren’t able to get more members, eventually they will be closed down because there will be no-one here to run it,” he said. The SSPS holds meetings on the first Monday of each month and conducts at least five running days – when the pumps are in operation – each year. Anyone interested in becoming a member can contact the Sunraysia Steam Preservation Society on 5024 1838 after hours or 5024 5637. The pumps are open each Sunday between 10am and midday, but only as a static display.

Thousands of emergency services volunteers will be recognised for their contributions in a $3.2 million government campaign entitled ‘Vital, Valued Victorians’, with Merbein’s Trevor Willcock to be amongst the bunch.

2000 ‘hungry’ bulbs gone! MORE than 2000 energy-hungry light bulbs were replaced with energy-efficient ones in homes and business across Sunraysia last weekend – the first of four weekends that Bendigo Bank’s ‘Generation Green Ban the Bulb’ campaign will run. The campaign offers Victorian home and business owners the opportunity to replace their incandescent light bulbs with energy-saving ones, installed free of charge by local community volunteer groups. This year’s campaign is being rolled out to more than 50 communities across Victoria, with 300,000 globes set to be exchanged in more than 17,500 homes and 2500 businesses. The initiative will save about 150,000 tonnes in carbon emissions or the equivalent of taking 35,000 cars off our roads for a year. Mildura Bendigo Bank branch’s Jack Dalton said the community’s response to the program had been overwhelming. To have your old bulbs replaced free of charge visit or contact Bendigo Bank branch Langtree 03 5023 5578, Bendigo Bank branch Centro 03 5022 2377 or Bendigo Community Bank Branch Merbein 03 5025 1377.

Volunteer thank you By VINNIE RODI

TREVOR Willcock has been a Merbein Country Fire Authority volunteer for 20 years, spending anywhere between 40 to 50 hours a week responding to a variety of fire and emergency situations. And while it’s a ‘job’ that the 48-year-old has done willingly, it’s one that is vital to the community he loves, with Trevor one of 84,000 Victorians to be recognised as part of a government initiative. Entitled ‘Vital, Valued Victorians’, the aim of the $3.2 million campaign is to showcase the work Emergency Service Organisations and their volunteers do on a daily basis, whilst demonstrating the crucial role people like Trevor play within their individual communities. The Victoria Government will run the initiative for the next two months, with a number of advertisements already appearing in newspapers and on television. Trevor said that while no one did volunteer work to get recognition, he was glad to see people being acknowledged for their work and dedication. “It’s fantastic to see the government recognising emergency volunteer services

like the CFA,” he said. “I don’t think community members realise the amount of work and commitment that goes into these organi-

sations until they’re forced to dial 000, and it’s because of that fact that volunteers are sometimes forgotten.” Trevor’s CFA career start-

ed somewhat strangely, with the third generation Merbein resident simply ‘invited’ to watch the group in action. “I’d been a scout leader for 10 years at the time, and was at a point where I wanted a change and a chance to do something different,” he said. “I’ve always been keen to volunteer within the community, mainly as a way of giving something back to the town I’ve lived in my whole life.” Trevor said that back in those days potential volunteers were simply invited to observe from a safe distance, and then given the opportunity to decide if they wanted to join up. “We do things differently now, but back then the norm was to simply go along for the ride,” he said. “The main thing that drew me in was the friendly atmosphere and ‘family’ environment of the place, and the way volunteers supported one another. “From the moment I saw the guys in action I knew it was something I could handle, and wanted to be a part of.” It’s that ‘family’ vibe that has continued to appeal to Trevor over the years, saying it was one of the reasons he had stayed so active within the group.

“To do this job you firstly have to be committed, because there’s a lot involved,” he said. “Not only do we deal with property and ‘bush’ fires, but we also offer support at motor accidents and help educate the community about fire awareness. “While we’re very fortunate to not live in a major bush fire area, there are the occasionally bad property fires or road accidents, and having a group of people you can lean on is important.” And while Trevor said it’s a job that required availability at odd times, it was something he would continue to do while he was still fit and able. “There have been times where I’ve missed the occasional birthday party because of a call,” he said. “And I’ve had dozens of 3am call-outs as well, but it’s part of the job, and is something I enjoy doing. “I’ll probably keep going until the body has had enough, which could be years down the track. “There are plenty of guys who are in their 50s and 60s and are still going strong, so it might be a while before I call it quits.” • Continued Page 7

Sustainability spotlight shines on Sun Festival

GARDENING tips, building ideas or a new wardrobe. The 2009 Mildura Sun Festival has the lot. The festival is the region’s annual summit for devotees of sustainable communities and hundreds of like-minded people are expected to descend on the Benetook Avenue field days site next to the Mildura’s Sunraysia Institute of TAFE on Sunday to share ideas and products. Gates will open at 10am and the day will include numerous exhibits, workshops, and presentations with key speakers including ABC Gardening Australia’s Josh Byrne, RIGHT, and noted builder Rob Hadden. Josh will host two sessions at the festival. The first, the Green Gardening workshop – looking at growing your own food – from 9.30am to 12.45pm, and another Green Gardening workshop in the Zen Home Energies System tent from 2.30pm to 3.30pm. Rob is an experienced builder who specialises in natural construction materials. Rob will host two practical sessions on traditional home building techniques – lime rendering and plasters workshop from 10.30am –

12.15pm, and timber frame joinery between 1.30pm and 3pm. Healthy discussions about some of the newest sustainable technologies and improvements are promised in a series of question and answer-style, informal presentations throughout the day, while exhibitors will feature installers of solar panels and grey water systems, home efficiency auditors, bio-diesel producers, research and local government organisations, and Sustainability Victoria. Festival coordinator, Alex Cross, is hoping for a large turnout of people to “just come down and have a great day together”. “A sustainable community is an inclusive community,” he says. Other, family-orientated activities planned include a used clothing and bric-a-brac store, organic food, children’s activities and live music. A full program is available from the Mildura Visitors Centre or on the event’s website at www.mildurasunfestival.com.au. For further information, or if you wish to pre-register to attend the workshops please contact Alex on (03) 5022 3748.

Field day site ‘looks a picture’ BIRCHIP Cropping Group (BCG) will host its Wimmera Research Field Day next Thursday, October 8 from 9am at Patton’s property, located on St Arnaud-Wycheproof Road, 25 kilometres north of St Arnaud. The site is said to be “looking a picture” after above averagre September rains, with the wheat flourishing, the canola flowering, and lentils booming. The day will commence with a discussion held in the ‘renowned’ BCG soil pit, led by Melissa Cann from the Department of Primary Industries, with participants to hear up-to-date information on herbicide tolerance in cereals throughout the morning. Several topics and guest speakers will be on show, including Rob Wheeler (SARDI) to discuss disc versus knife seeding systems, Greg Toomey (Landmark) talking about wheat varieties, Dr Russell Eastwood (AGT) discussing barley agronomy, Kate Burke (John Stuchbery and Associates) talking about unlocking phosphorus for pulses, and Rob Velthuis (NovaZymes) discussing herbicide tolerant canola. A forum led by Colin Peace (Executive Officer Australian Fodder and Industry Association) will be held after lunch, where questions relating to hay production and marketing will be answered. Entry for BCG members is free, with non-members admitted for $30. More information is available by contacting the BCG on (03) 5492 2787, or by visiting www.bcg.org.au.

• HOME SWEET HOME: The new Robinvale Fire Station will serve the town and its surrounds for decades to come.

• From Page 5 Twenty years on and Trevor is now the station’s Captain (a role he’s held for six years), in addition to working for the Wentworth Council, saying that balancing the two had been difficult. “Being Captain requires a lot of time, there are always media interviews, recruits to train and schools to visit,” he said. “And sometimes it can feel like a full-time job. “Luckily for myself, and many of the other volunteers, we have flexible employers who help us fulfil commitments required for both work and the CFA.” People are encouraged to show their support for volunteers like Trevor by posting messages online at www. volunteer.vic.gov.au, or by sending an SMS with ‘Vols’ and their message to 0488 505 050. “Personally I think it’s a fantastic initiative, especially because it covers all emergency services, and not just the CFA,” Trevor said. “I know that I have a fantastic group of guys who dedicate a lot of their time, and it’s good to see them recognised.”

Robinvale’s firefighters get modern new home ROBINVALE’S 25 dedicated volunteer firefighters now have one of the most modern fire stations in Victoria. The new $1.6 million facility was officially opened a week ago by Victorian Police and Emergency Services Minister Bob Cameron, marking a major upgrade for local firefighters. Robinvale’s volunteer members respond to about 100 calls each

year, covering a 400 square kilometre service area. As part of the official opening proceedings, Captain Colin Egan was presented with a life membership with the Country Fire Authority in recognition of his services. In addition to attending fires in their service area, Robinvale volunteers also provide support to strike teams at campaign fires across

Australia and assisted in fighting this year’s Black Saturday bushfires. The fire station opening comes as firefighters once again brace for yet another high-risk fire season. “With less than 30 days to go before the start of what is expected to be another challenging fire season, all Victorians, no matter where they live, need to be on alert and start preparing now,” Mr Cameron said.

This is a story of one woman’s battle with the debilitating disease Multiple Sclerosis. Mildura’s Pam – and the heartache. Parts of the story will move you to tears, but Pam isn’t looking for sympathy. character, and certainly resilient, leading up to, and including, her recent 60th birthday celebrations.

That’s why the lady is a champ SHE is often seen out and about, especially out at Centro, zipping around in her electric wheelchair, the trademark smile plastered all over her face. More often than not, Pam Fiesley is accompanied by husband Eric, daughters Sharon and Jeni, or one of the carers who not only help her with basic needs, but who have also become her good friends over the years. Family members proudly say that’s one of Pam’s traits… a soft, yet bubbly and infectious personality, and one which has captured the hearts of many who meet her. Daughter Jeni says it is nothing short of amazing what her mum has had to endure, and overcome, in recent years… including many added hurdles in recent months, “but she refuses to give in, and just keeps battling on.” The Pam Fiesley-Mildura connection began in 1974, when she and Eric moved to this desert oasis, making their home at Nichols Point. In those early days, Pam played netball, and thought nothing of regularly walking the 10 kilometres into Mildura and back – while Eric taught maths at Irymple Technical School. In the early 80s, Pam, then 34 and living in Mildura, got into the habit of walking Jeni and her sister Sharon to school, but by the time she returned home, she was having trouble lifting her feet up the two steps to the front door. Not too many months later, Pam began to notice another bothersome problem – she was developing progressively worsening continence problems, meaning she was up and down to the loo many times during the night. Finally, she went to see gynaecologist Dr Neil Fleming. As it happened, he had watched her walk up the path to the clinic, and commented on her “awkward walk.” Pam was referred to Dr Barry Dowty, who didn’t mince words. Worst scenario was a malignant brain tumor, at best a benign brain tumor… or possibly somewhere in between – Multiple Sclerosis.

• ANOTHER FIRST: Mildura’s Pam Fiesley, still with the trademark grin, and even more reason to smile – nursing her first grandchild Kira. That’s Pam (INSET, TOP LEFT) getting ready to open one of her 60th birthday presents, and an earlier picture – from the 80’s – after hubby Eric took her on an excursion to feed the swans and seagulls at the Melbourne Botanic Gardens. Pam was referred to Flinders Medical Centre in Adelaide, where she underwent many days of tests… and then the diagnosis – she had Multiple Sclerosis. It was tough news for the whole

family, not just Pam, but Eric, Sharon, then aged 11, and Jeni, 9. But Pam took it on the chin, and although the trip home was a little subdued, within days Pam was her usual cheerful self, and determined

to go on with life. What she didn’t know was that the MS-affected nerves were mainly in Pam’s mid-spinal region – and everything below that was affected – legs, and bladder/bowel func-

tions. Despite some operations, her problems worsened, with several ‘accidents,’ until a colostomy operation in the late 1990s. About that same time, Pam decided to hand in her driving licence,

Fiesley and her family tell the story warts and all…the highs, the lows, the frustrations, the hardships Life has dealt her a cruel blow, but she has proven to be strong and courageous in mind, spirit and Her family last week told their story to the Mildura Weekly. As Frank Sinatra might sing…

• FAMILY QUILT: A work of art…and love. Pam admires her main 60th birthday present, the quilt featuring members of her family, and being held by her daughters Sharon and Jeni, while granddaughter Kira goes for the empty box. ABOVE – At Bulga Park, near Yarram, as surefooted as a mountain goat before MS set in, and BELOW LEFT – at Mildura Rowers around 1974 in ‘please don’t take my photo’ mode. as she felt her physical reactions were no longer good enough to be in full control of a vehicle on the roads. But as she became less mobile, she put her mind to things that she could still do. She resurrected a simple tapestry given to her 16 years earlier, and quickly finished it, enjoying the finished product and proudly displaying it at home. But with the tapestry hanging on the wall, boredom had set in, so Eric bought her a more challenging one. It was finished in three months. A friend suggested she enter the tapestry in a show, “just for a giggle,” but she shouldn’t expect to do any good. Eric was later to say; ”You should have seen her face light up when that same friend phoned to say Pam’s work had won second prize.” In the early stages of Pam’s loss of mobility, walking aids were adopted, beginning with a simple walking stick. Some years later she ‘graduated’ to a walking frame, and then a push-along wheelchair. When she wore that one out, Eric got her another one, and later still, an electric wheelchair. It gave her the extra mobility she needed, not to do more things for herself, but to get out and help others, including those with similar problems to hers, along with

number of weeks at TAFE as a volunteer, discussing with participants how her condition had progressed within her, and how she dealt with it. She told it as it was, not pulling any punches, despite the personal nature of the disease. Some years later, she was doing the same thing with interest groups in Merbein. She wanted (and still wants) folks to understand that

subsequently cleared of cancer, she had been further affected by the procedure. Despite her weakened state, the smile never left her face, and she tried to fight back, the same as she did after a gall bladder removal, and hysterectomy. But then she caught a simple cold, and was so weak she couldn’t even cough. Eric called an ambulance, and Pam was hospitalised.

Some years later, she was doing the same thing with interest groups in Merbein. She wanted (and still wants) folk to understand that MS was not just something to do with a Read-a-thon.

school children, explaining the condition when it was brought into focus by the annual MS Reada-thons. Pam even guest-lectured for a

MS was not just something to do with a Read-a-thon. As the years passed, Eric took a ‘package’ from TAFE (1996) to become Pam’s full-time carer. Accrued ‘super’ eventually funded Pam’s wheelchair-accessible Renault van, giving her mobility for outings and shopping trips. Now it’s nearing the end of 2009, a year that has meant more difficulties, and problems, for Pam. Family members tell how an adenocarcinoma (bowel cancer) had formed in the now-redundant part of Pam’s lower bowel. Removal of that required a major operation, and although Pam was

The cold developed into pneumonia, and while that was happening, the left side of Pam’s mouth suddenly drooped – she was having a stroke. Doctors told the family that there was a bleed deep within Pam’s right brain hemisphere, and she was air-ambulanced to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne. Fortunately, the bleeding stopped, but Pam’s lungs were congested, and she still couldn’t cough. Antibiotics weren’t working, and one night she came very close to death. A drug they call ‘The Last Chance antibiotic’, Vancomycin, was administered, and almost

straight away Pam opened her eyes and smiled broadly at her family and nurses with the ‘working’ part of her mouth. She was on the mend yet again. Family members talk proudly of Pam’s attitude… for instance she will always smile and say a soft “thank you” to anyone who comes to see her or help her. She would thank a nurse who was doing something as simple as giving Pam her tablets, taking her temperature, or doing other simple little jobs. There have been many comments about Pam’s attitude making up for the lack of thanks exhibited elsewhere in the wards. After a week in Melbourne, Pam was returned to Mildura Base Hospital, and a month or so later was collected by Eric and returned home. Her speech hadn’t been affected by many years of MS, but within moments of the stroke, it deteriorated significantly, but she could still make herself understood. Unfortunately, her ability to swallow correctly had been compromised and within a week of returning home, Pam aspirated some drinking water and was quickly returned to hospital with aspiration pneumonia. • Continued next page

Mildura Weekly - 9/10/09

That’s why the lady is a champ • From previous page Three weeks of recovery was followed by three more weeks of rest at Mildura Nursing Centre, Ontario Avenue. According to her family, you could still see by the look in her eyes that she loved the staff and what they did… they even managed to give her a spa bath, which she loved. It had been many decades since she’d had one. She loved the centre too, but badly wanted to come home again. In early September, two days after Pam and Eric’s 39th wedding anniversary – her wish came true, and she was sadly farewelled from Mildura Nursing Centre, going home with Eric. The family is at pains to point out the amazing support through all Pam’s treatment, such as TRIO Support Services staff, in particular Therese Rhodes, and Pam’s Case Manager Peta Webber of Community Care Options, who constantly produces support and funding marvels, and a host of other people that Pam and her family describe as ‘pure angels.’ These are among the people in Pam’s life who are helping her along life’s hard road, and there are many more, including the many shop assistants, such as those at her favourite shop – Noni B, who are constantly asking after her – and passers-by she meets on her wheelchair travels. She is also fondly asked after not just by friends of the family, but friends of friends who have never met her, but heard about her fight, and who are intrigued by this special lady. Family members have a simple message to end their story. They say that now that our readers know a bit about Pam’s triumphs, trials and tribulations, they shouldn’t be scared to say a simple ‘hello’ if they see her getting around via her electric ‘wheels’ once again. It is a case of one step at a time for what many people describe as ‘a remarkable lady,’ a person who regularly tells her family and friends that she couldn’t go through what she does without their love and support. A doctor, commenting only recently on Pam’s 23 years of fighting serious – and frequent – health issues, described her as “amazing,” Her proud family, friends and carers say; “we know!”

They’ve done everything from recovery of bodies from a plane wreckage off-shore, to helping Minister Tim Holding get off a freezing mountain, and rescuing a wayward hang-glider from a tree! And they’re often in Mildura in a case of…

Wide range of jobs for Search and Rescue...

JUST a couple of weekends ago, Senior Constable Mark Helyer of the Victoria Police Search and Rescue Squad was working in freezing conditions in the snowcovered High Country, helping four young, inexperienced and ill-equipped backpackers get their vehicle out of a bog. And just last week he and other members of the squad were in sunny Mildura, searching the murky depths of the Murray River near Merbein as part of an ongoing police operation for the recovery of dumped stolen vehicles. “It’s the diversity of the job that is one of the appealing aspects,” he says. “We never know from one day to the next which part of Victoria we will be working, and there is a wide variety of jobs.” Mark was working the river with squad members Senior Constable Ryan Hartshorne and Leading Senior Constable Simon Ranik, under team leader Acting Sergeant Scott Bower. They were working out of a $60,000 inflatable, loaded with latest high-tech sonar equipment and diving gear, a far cry from when the squad was founded 52 years ago, then operating with the most basic of equipment. Simon is a search and rescue veteran, with 30 years experience under his belt. Jobs in the squad are hard to come by. There are few vacancies. Police members work hard to achieve the wide diversity of qualifications necessary to make them eligible… and if they happen to score a vacancy, they tend to stick it out for many years because of the nature and variety of the work. One of their biggest jobs in recent times was leading the search for State Minister Tim Holding, who was lost on snow-covered Mount Feathertop for more than 48 hours. The search tied up half the squad’s total strength of 20 per-

them over the years, among them a family of four who went down in a light plane after the pilot went too low dodging cloud cover. The bodies, and parts of the plane strewn over a wide area, were recovered in several metres of water about 100 metres offshore.

Scott Bower says it was one of the more memorable jobs, along with the time he helped retrieve a hang-glider – and his dog – who had misjudged a landing and ended up stuck high in the branches of a tree. • Continued Page 13

TO many Sunraysia residents Ken Carr is the man who has worked tirelessly for the Mildura Trades and Labour Council and Mallee Family Care for almost 20 years. But there’s a lot more to Ken’s life outside of Mildura. It is a combination of those experiences which have led to Ken receiving a Senior Achiever Award at Victoria’s Government House last Friday. While Ken is well known in Sunraysia, he has almost legendary status as a fighter for social justice as part of the trade union movement in Melbourne during the 1960s and 1970s, where he often made national news headlines in his fight to see the average worker treated fairly. Ken was born in Red Cliffs in 1929 and lived much of his early life in Irymple before moving to Melbourne with his family at the beginning of the Second World War. After working numerous jobs, Ken became one of the major organisers behind the fiesty Furnishers Trade Union. By 1960, after about 10 years with the Union, he became both State and Federal Secretary of the Furnishers Trade Union, before playing a major role in a break-away group of unions known as the ‘27 Rebel Unions’, which fought for workers rights. After several successful campaigns, Ken said it became clear unions could serve an important role in the wider community - not just in the workforce. “We’d become so effective in these sorts (worker-related) of activities we thought, there were other really important issues that affected people, including environmental ones,” Ken said this week before leaving for Melbourne. It was a point recognised by communities around Melbourne.

“For example, it was decided there would be a pipeline across Port Phillip Bay, taking natural gas,” he said. “The unions and the communities around the bay saw that as the thin end of the wedge. “If they let the natural gas one go in, there’ll be an oil pipeline as well, which could be dangerous.

“What would happen is a whole lot of reasonably good houses would be pulled down, hundreds of people would be put out and then the Commission would build high-rise housing for thousands of people with no accompanying schools and other services. It would have been a catastrophe,” Ken recalls. “After being approached by the bayside communities with these concerns, the union said, ‘well, we’re not going to build it’, and that caused quite a struggle. “Eventually they did build the pipeline, but when it came to the oil pipe, it went around, so while we might have lost the battle, we felt we’d won the war.” Ken said another battle won by the unions for the good of the people was when the Victorian Housing Commission was intent on pulling down houses in some of Melbourne’s inner suburbs, including Carlton, Fitzroy

and Brunswick, something Ken describes as a ‘windscreen survey’. “They sent a couple of blokes in a car around to all the inner suburbs to look at the areas that should be pulled down and replaced by high-rise housing,” he said. Many houses were identified in Carlton, angering local residents, who called on the union’s help. “What would happen is a whole lot of reasonably good houses would be pulled down, hundreds of people would be put out and then the Commission would build high-rise housing for thousands of people with no accompanying schools and other services. It would have been a catastrophe,” Ken remembered. “So the unions said, ‘we’re not going to build them’, and in the end the Housing Commission just gave in. It was all about social consciousness.” These struggles for the common person took place during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Throughout that time Ken was designated ‘coordinating secretary’ of the large group of unions, which had considerable power. He was also spokesman for the group and a major driver behind the scenes. The now 80-year-old lists some of his accomplishments during this era as among the most rewarding of his career. “I think the Housing Commission stuff, because many of the houses we saved are still there,” he said. Ken has been approached in more recent times by occupants of some of those houses, who have personally thanked him for saving their homes. At its height, the group of rebel unions represented tens of thousands of workers across Australia and wielded incredible power. Ken then took his union power to the international

for social honoured stage in a bid to get a better deal for workers, once again driven by a sense of social justice. He managed to get the Furnishers Trade Union onto the International Federation of Building and Woodworkers Union in the wake of a flood of cheap imports which were hurting the livelihoods of Australian workers in the early 1980s. “Australian workers at the time, especially in manufacturing, were being hit hard by imports in the early 1980s,” Ken said. “The Whitlam Government had capped tariffs and the unions were in all sorts of strife, and it was mainly because of imports from countries where workers were being paid nothing. “So I thought, well, one of the best ways to overcome this problem was to try to improve conditions for workers in those countries where they were being paid nothing.” Ken was elected president of the Asian arm of the International Federation of Building and Woodworkers Union and was on the executive of the International Union. In these roles he spent much of his time in the Philippines and some time in India. It provided an insight into the conditions workers had to operate under at the time - conditions Ken

The program was eventually shut down due to political problems under the Marcos regime, which is when Ken returned to his native Mildura in the mid-1980s, and the next chapter in his life. After several years spent re-settling in the district, Ken was asked to head up the Mildura Trades Hall. It was a position he accepted, despite the lack of

manufacturing in the district. “I’ve always held the view that unions are an important part of the entire community,” he said. “So I made the Trades Hall an important part of the community.” It was in this role that he first met Mallee Family Care executive director Vernon Knight, who was in the throws of establishing the mega-successful Chances for Children program. Mr Knight still remembers these early years of their relationship clearly. “As opposed to discussing industrial issues, our conversations invariably focussed on measures that would bridge the opportunity gaps for those children and young people in Mildura who were failing to realise their educational potential,” Mr Knight said. “In Ken I discovered a man with surprising intellect, a thirst for knowledge and a genuine appreciation of literature and learning. • Continued Page 19

Wide range of jobs for Police Search and Rescue • From page 10 A lot of their work is also searching for missing people, and recovery work, sometimes for bodies in the river, stolen cars, proceeds of crime or other dumped items needed as evidence in unsolved cases, or cases pending. The Police Search and Rescue Squad operates out of a Williamstown base, with equipment that includes two boats, a dive truck, jet skies, snowmobiles, a snow ‘prowler’ and a wide variety of dive gear, sonar, navigation equipment and clothing necessary for a wide variety of jobs, in all conditions. Squad members say a lot of searches could be avoided if people took every possible precaution, equipped themselves better, avoided going off alone, and making sure family or friends know where they are. Around 25 percent of the 300 Search and Rescue Squad responses in 2008 involved a search for missing people in Victoria’s bushland, including The Grampians, Pyrenees, Mt Dom Dom, Wyperfeld, Mt Buffalo and Otway National Park. Police say the cost of searching for missing people runs into hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. Squad members say that when people get lost, it basically comes down to lack of preparation, experience, equipment and judgement. Injury, vehicle break down, miscalculating the time required to cover the distance and illness account for many of the call outs. There have also been several incidences of vehicle-based GPS devices leading people into dangerous situations. The squad’s advice is for people not to rely on GPS alone, but to seek advice from other sources. Some of the cases are frustrating. One example,

Without telling anyone, they had decided to extend their trip by a week! Other examples where searches could have been avoided include a man who left his house following a family dispute in a small farming community without telling anyone. This resulted in concerns for his welfare and the commencement of a large-scale police and volunteer search. It was later discovered that the man travelled interstate for a few days to have a break from his family. A man went on a 4WD trip alone for a week in remote desert country, not informing his family where he was heading. He later encountered mechanical problems and became

Country music’s unsung heroes

MILDURA’S 23rd annual Country Music Festival dominated the media during its 10 day tenure, with community members treated to stories about both local and out-of-town talent. And while the festival’s main attractions got most of the attention, unbeknownst to spectators another group of stars worked diligently behind-the-scenes, there to ensure the event ran smoothly and without incident. Led by 22-year veteran of the festival Ray Smith, a group of volunteers have been working tirelessly selling merchandise, setting up various staging, lighting and sound equipment across the district (namely Langtree Mall and Henderson Park), all the while acting as unofficial public relation officers for the event. Ray said that it was a big job to undertake every year, and every year he was finding he loved it even more. “It definitely keeps me busy,” he said. “And having a great group of guys and girls helping out has made it a lot easier over the years as well, because I guarantee I couldn’t do it by myself.” Ray has been a volunteer, and festival coordinator, since the festival’s inception in Mildura, there every year to organise a group, all country music lovers, to help run the event. They do it free of charge, mainly because they love

seeing “good music” played in Mildura’s streets and parks. “The main thing I love about the festival is the opportunity to mingle with people who all share a love of country music, and volunteering has allowed me to do that,” Ray said. As if to illustrate his point one of the hundreds of audience members leaving that day’s performance tapped him on the shoulder, looking for information about CD purchases. • Continued Page 19

SPRING flowers will be grabbing the limelight at tomorrow’s annual Cardross Show. And this year a highlight will be a huge rose section along with the irises, cut flowers and floral art. “Every year the Cardross Hall looks magnificent when you walk through the front door,” show stalwart, Mary Chandler, said. “You are literally confronted with a fabulous bouquet of mixed scents, and a kaleidoscope of colour.” “One of the most highly sought after prizes at our show is the Champion Rose of the Show,” Mary said. “Over the years this coveted award has been won by both novices as well as expert rose growers.” “And this year the competition looks like it is going to be keenly fought out once more.” The numerous flower entries for this year’s show have pleased organisers, as has the burgeoning number of entries for the cookery section. “Every year the cookery section is continuing to expand which is very gratifying,” Mary said. This year’s show schedule has cookery competition sections for plain cakes, short bread, pikelets, scones, cream puffs, orange cakes, nut loaves, sponges, lamingtons, jelly cakes, slice and bread. And the juniors have not been forgotten, with several cookery categories set aside expressly for the youngsters. Meanwhile, the Sunvale Fruit Company has donated prize, as well as the recipe, for this year’s coveted fruit cake section. Every fruit cake entry has to use the same recipe, and for anyone

else who would like to try it, the Mildura Weekly has been fortunate to obtained a copy (see breakout). This year’s schedule also features competition sections for vegetables, citrus fruits, eggs, photography, and arts and crafts. The hall will be open for staging of exhibits between 4pm and 7pm today, and again from 7.30am until 9.30am sharp tomorrow morning. The Hall will be closed for judging from 9.30am onwards and is set to reopen about 11.30am. Meanwhile, the show’s popular outdoor market will open at 10am, with continuous light food available throughout the day, while the show committee will be running cake, plant and trash ‘n’ treasure stalls. The show schedule is now available at the Cardross Store, all local Mildura Rural City Council libraries, the Red Cliffs Newsagency and Foodworks. All show enquiries should be directed to Dianne on mobile 0407 355 298 or 5024 1141; or Mary on 5024 1345 .

Scary? Not so much, but artistic? You bet! By GRANT MAYNARD THEY’RE called scarecrows for a reason... they are meant to scare the birds away from a farmer’s crop. But this year’s entries for the annual Cardross Show Scarecrow Competition were more artistic than scary... and so well rendered that the judging panel had to make some difficult choices when came to awarding prizes. But the judges’ verdict is in, and the winners have been announced. Of section one, the Red Cliffs Club Open Individual, the judges said: “The standard was consistently high,” with the winner being entry number one, ‘Louie’, by Alarna Searle. Second was awarded to Maria Riedl’s ‘Elvis’. Section 2, the Family Section sponsored by M.A. Shugg Pty Ltd, was won by the number eight entry of Kim, Ian and Nicole Knight dubbed ‘Motorbike Rider’. The judges described the winning entry as “a standout presentation”. “A lot of work, detail and thought went into this presentation and it was the best of all sections,” they said. The family section attracted the most entries of any section and choosing the second prize was very difficult but in the end it went to

the Scase family, with special mentions for the Dalla Santa, Tickle and Farrell families. Hydraulic Solutions and Pneumatics Section Three for Businesses, Organisations or Clubs was won by the Nexus Club of Red Cliffs with ‘Barbie’ and the runnerup was ‘Man Dancing’ by residents of Jacaranda Village. The judges said of this section: “Hopefully the standard of this year will encourage other clubs and businesses to consider entering next year because it is an excellent way to lift their profile as the event is becoming increasingly popular.” The win for Section Four, sponsored by Stefano’s 27 Deakin Cafe and Bakery for schools, kindergartens and registered child care centres, went to the Mildura Specialist School for its ‘Witch’ closely followed by Cardross Primary School Preps, Grades 1-2 for their ‘Echidna’. “It was pleasing to see the increased entries in this section this year,” the judges said, “With the variety of subject matter being commendable.” “There was a strong emphasis on the environment in some entries and it is obvious the children have been studying this to great effect.” And the judges reserved a special mention for the Farrell family’s Paris ‘Pickin’ Hilton. “Someone certainly had done a lot of homework and detailed research on this very humorous scarecrow,” the judges said. Paris is depicted in suitably trendy gear, complete with her ever-present and beloved dog, and a bottle of champers! • ARTFULLY DONE: Some of this year’s notable entries for the annual Cardross Show Scarecrow competition were the Motorbike and Rider, ABOVE RIGHT, the’ Echidna’ complete with black ants INSET, Louie, the elder statesman of the group RIGHT, and the gorgeous ‘Barbie, LEFT.

Country music’s unsung heroes Give way to buses •  From Page 14 Five minutes later, and after pointing the lady in the right direction, Ray simply stated that chance meetings were also a highlight. “I’ve made dozens of close friends over the years just like that,” he said referring to the women. “I might only get to see them once a year, but when we catch up it’s fantastic.” Ray said that while the majority of volunteers were locals, quite a few were from out-of-town, all too happy to lend their weight to the cause in between shows. Each day would see the

group follow the same routine, starting at 8am in the Langtree Mall where eight volunteers would set-up the massive stage. They’d ensure that the sound quality and equipment were all in working order, before several members headed to Henderson Park, assisting another group who were preparing for the day’s events. During the day three or four volunteers would man the merchandise and information stall while Ray worked the crowd, answering questions and generally “talking-up” upcoming acts. At 4pm, when the day had drawn to a close,

the same group that volunteered in the morning (several having gone to work and knocked-off for the day) would return to dismantle the stage, store equipment in a trailer, and pack-up all of the various CDs, DVDs and cassettes. And while occasionally back-breaking work, each task was greeted with laughter and friendly banter, with each person knowing exactly where everything was supposed to go. “They’ve got it down to an art,” Ray said. “We can basically set-up the mall in under 30 minutes, and that includes unpacking the trailer and doing sound checks.”

He said that there was no better feeling then being a volunteer, helping to run and organise an event he loves. “It’s something I highly recommend others who enjoy the festival to get involved with,” Ray said. “We have a lot of fun, and most importantly without a dedicated group of volunteers like this the festival wouldn’t be able to go ahead in the great way that it does now. “Everyone who comes to the festival rightly comes to see the singers, but I also think it’s important that those working behind-thescenes are recognised as well.”

WHILE driving, especially where there are bus routes, you should always be on the lookout for buses stopping to pick-up, or dropoff, passengers. It’s the road rule that in built up areas buses displaying a ‘give way to buses’ sign have the right of way, especially when it’s about to pull out from the kerb. Always look for signs that the bus might be pulling out, and be ready to slow down to give way. Things to always consider include; how many people are getting on (or off) the bus, and do you have time to pass, what the distance between your car and

the bus is, whether the bus is indicating at all, watching the driver in the side mirror for signs he/ she are looking to enter the lane, or finally if it is safe, moving into the right lane.

Fighter for social justice honoured •  From Page 13 “His work as an advocate evidenced his native ability to think through complex issues and develop strategic responses to the region’s social and economic challenges. “I came to know a man who was not only concerned about social justice, but an individual who appreciated the importance of the arts, multiculturalism and the need to ensure the best possible access to education for children in our region.” Mr Knight enlisted Ken’s help in setting up Chances for Children, which has since gone on to raise more than $2million locally and supported more than 700 young people. “While Ken has continued to play many roles as a volunteer at

Mallee Family Care, he has essentially worked as a full-time volunteer for Chances for the best part of a decade,” Mr Knight said. “There has rarely been a day in that time when Ken hasn’t attended to his work. “His contacts with government and senior public servants have been vital and he has authored countless submissions in our endless quest for funds. “He has equally campaigned and advocated on matters of government policy where children in regional areas were seen to be disadvantaged. “Those close to him still marvel at the passion and determination of a man who has just celebrated his 80th birthday.” Since moving back to Mildura in the 1980s, Ken has contributed

to many other aspects of the community, in addition to his work with the Mildura Trades Hall and Chances for Children. He’s been a board member with the Mildura and Wentworth Arts Festival, the Sunraysia Institute of TAFE, Sunraysia Area Consultative Committee, Mildura Arts Advisory Board, and Northern Mallee Local Learning and Employment Network. Ken has also been an Australian Labor Party member for 54 years and is currently president of the Labor Party’s Mildura branch. Despite his achievements, and the fact that he’s now an 80-yearold, Ken says he has no plans to slow down in the near future. “My plans? I plan to do what I’m doing now!” he said.

THE NSW Electoral Commission will hold an information seminar for candidates considering standing at the upcoming Wentworth Shire Council by-election. “This is an initiative to ensure candidates standing for local government are fully aware of their obligations and responsibilities under the law’, said the NSW Electoral Commissioner, Colin Barry. “Anyone thinking of running for councillor is encouraged to attend the seminar to learn first hand about the electoral process, including how to nominate, register how to vote material and declare donations. The public expects high quality, informed candidates to stand for local council so we are also urging everyone who intends to stand for election to acquaint themselves with the electoral laws.” The seminar will take place at the Wentworth Memorial Restrooms (incorporating the Visitor Information Centre) 66 Darling Street, Wentworth on Sunday, 18 October from 2pm to 4pm. Pre-registration is not required. Further information about the seminars and the Wentworth Shire Council by-election is available at www.elections.nsw.gov.au or by calling 1300 135 736.

Around your municipality with Mildura Rural City Council

CouncilMatters Cheers to our Sporting Volunteers Mildura Rural City Council is giving people the chance to say thank you to dedicated individuals who give hours of their own time in order to support local sports and recreation organisations. Nominations are now open for the 2009 Sport and Recreation Volunteer of the Year Award, an annual honour that recognises it’s volunteers who keep our many sport and recreation clubs, groups, teams and competitions going. Portfolio Councillor for sport and recreation Sue Nichols said that while other awards paid tribute to the high achievements of sporting participants, this award recognised the people who are often not seen, and work behind the scenes. “These are the people who freely give their time and skills to their chosen club, and ultimately the community. They are the scorers, presidents, working bee helpers, secretaries, canteen ladies, treasurers, coaches and raffle ticket sellers. People that are often taken for granted but whose efforts ensure hundreds of others can enjoy the pleasures of sport and recreation,” she said. The winner of the 2009 Sport and Recreation Volunteer of the Year Award will be announced at the annual Mallee Sports Assembly Sports Star of the Year Awards gala dinner in early 2010. They will receive a plaque and $250 prize money. “I urge residents to think about those people who go above and beyond to support their sporting club or team and nominate them for this award.” Nomination forms are available on Council’s website www.mildura.vic.gov.au or by contacting Recreation Services on 5018 8316. Nominations close at 5pm on Friday 18 December. For further information contact Council’s Community Recreation Officer, Carmel Pethick on 5018 8316.

Happy Birthday School Focused Youth Service An integrated service that has provided support and intervention for more than 40,000 vulnerable local school students will celebrate a significant milestone next week. Thursday 15 October, 2009 marks the tenth anniversary of School Focused Youth Service, which is implemented by Mildura Rural City Council and funded by the state government to support all local schools. Portfolio Councillor for Human Services Judi Harris said the program, which began in 1998, worked on the premise that schools are central in developing a young person's capacity for resilience. “School Focused Youth Service enables Council’s specialist youth staff to work closely with all schools and provide services that are specific to each individual school,” she said. The integrated nature of School Focused Youth Service targets young people who are at risk of developing behaviours that may make them vulnerable, disengaged from school, family or community, or who are displaying behaviours which require support and intervention. This program brought substantial benefits to our community with approximately $500,000 worth of programs and services delivered to local schools. This program has also been provided with in kind and financial support from local schools and service providers. The introduction of the Secondary School nurse program and the Student Well-being program in that time has also enhanced support for young people. “The links that have been made between local schools, community youth service providers and Council’s Youth Services team over the past ten years are significant indeed and have had a positive impact on thousands of local young people,” Cr Harris said. A showcase of health and wellbeing programs that have been implemented at schools throughout the region and a gathering of youth services providers, school staff and youth workers will mark the tenth anniversary milestone of School Focused Youth Service. For more information about School Focused Youth Service and other Council-based youth programs call 5018 8280.

Kate leaves rockers ‘star-struck’

art

mattersoft fth he

By VINNIE RODI LOCAL soft rock group Off the Handle returned home from the Red Desert Live event in Broken Hill feeling a touch “star-struck” after meeting one of Australian music’s leading ladies. Not only were the four-piece one of the headline acts at the live music extravaganza, but they were also lucky enough to rub shoulders with Australian pop star Kate Ceberano, whose celebrity status was enough to leave all four members speechless. “We’re not normally shy,” guitarist Brad Allen said. “But when we walked into her green room where not only Kate, but a host of industry professionals were hanging out, we all went quiet.” Brad said the songstress, whose career has spanned more than 20 years and includes five platinum albums, four gold albums and more than one million albums sold in Australia alone, had simply taken the situation in her stride. “She’s a lovely and down to Earth women,” Brad said. “She’d just finished her set, and simply walked up to us, introduced herself, and gave us all a hug. “It was great getting a chance to mingle with that sort of talent and

experience, and I think it’s something each of us will remember.” Even more amazing was a ringing endorsement from the veteran, who had managed to catch a couple of the band’s original songs. “She said she’d liked our sound and style, which was a fantastic compliment coming from someone as successful as Kate,” Brad said. More than 300 people braved the cold weather for the two-day event, with Brad saying the gig had come about due to an ad on local radio. “That’s how we heard about it,” he said. “Organisers were looking for interested bands, so we decided we’d give it a shot and send them a copy of our CD. “Luckily for us they liked it, and invited us to play. It turned out to be

• ROCK-ON: Mildura rockers Off the Handle (Brad Allen, Baux Tarr, Jarred Clarke and Dan Probst) perform at the recent Desert Live event held in Broken Hill, where they were lucky enough to meet Aussie songstress Kate Ceberano (LEFT). a great opportunity to take our original music to another audience, and people seemed keen to have a listen and support all of the bands.” Off the Handle will now turn its attention toward the next leg of the Global Battle of the Bands competition, with unsigned talent from all over the world currently battling it out for a development package worth $100,000. The group took its first steps in the competition last August, beating three other local acts, including powerhouse rockers Jackson Firebird, to win the event, and claim one of two

local spots available at the Regional Final. Seven bands will make the trip to Mildura for the regional leg of the competition, to be held on November 12, with Off the Handle and Jackson Firebird to fly the flag for Sunraysia. The winner of that leg will move on to the national final, where they’ll compete for an all expenses paid trip to London to contest the last leg the competition. Brad said the band would be in heavy rehearsal mode for the next month, with competitors getting

only eight minutes to impress judges and audiences. “It’s going to be tough,” he said. “Not only do we have to wow the judges and stand out from the crowd, but audience response plays a big part as well. “Luckily we have the home crowd advantage, and we need people to come to O’Malley’s Irish Tavern on the night, and make sure a local band gets through.” More information is available by contacting O’Malley’s Irish Tavern on 5021 4236, or visit www.omalleysmildura.com.au.

• Tom O’Neill with then Governor General, Major General Mike Jefferies at the dedication of the POW memorial in Ballarat in 2004. ANOTHER of the few remaining ex-POW’s from the Burma Railway has passed away. Mildura’s Tom O’Neill died on Saturday night in Mildura Private Hospital after a short illness. He was 93. Tom’s story was told through the eyes of his author son Danny in the Mildura Weekly last year. His war service was with the 2/2 Pioneer Battalion which, after fighting in Syria, was returning to Australia when, along with other units, they were off-loaded in Java to try to cut off the Japanese advance. Without support they had little hope, and within a very short time the veterans of the Syria campaign – where the battalion had suffered many casualties – were prisoners of war. Six months later most of them were working on the Thai-Burma railway line under appalling conditions. Of the 865 members of Tom’s battalion who became prisoners of war, 258 died in captivity – 177 in the railway camps. After the war, Tom returned to Sunraysia and married Auralie LeBrun. He trained as a house painter, and painted homes built by Bill Shurey for many years throughout the district. He is survived by children Danny, Elaine (Mitchell), Auralie (Munro), Shane and Jamie, and many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Tom will be laid to rest after a funeral service at Mildura Cemetery at 11am on Monday.

In case of an emergency... Story and photos by GRANT MAYNARD LAST Friday’s welcome rain could not dampen the enthusiasm of the youngsters attending Palinyewah School’s celebration of community emergency services. The day was designed to allow the students to learn more about each of the services represented by participating in a number of fun and educational activities. Volunteer members from the NSW Rural Ambulance Service’s Pooncarie branch, the Ellerslie brigade of the Rural Fire Service, Wentworth State Emergency Service, and fire support personnel from Dareton attended. The school’s usual complement of just 23 students was bolstered by some outsiders... cousins from Victoria on school holidays who, along with the regular students, were grouped by their year, and rotated from one activity to another hosted by the volunteers. The rain did force one major change of plans – with some activities originally planned for the outdoors having to be moved into a classroom. I say ‘some’ because the fire hose demonstration was one that still had to go on outdoors! The students learned first aid basics from the ‘ambos’; how to remember the 000 emergency number from fire support staffers; took part in a mock 000 call where they used a telephone link and were asked a series of questions by an ‘emergency service operator’ from the fire brigade; and the SES taught them the value of a good woollen blanket for keeping people in shock warm. The fact that it was a cold and wet made it one of the most attractive activities as our photographs show. And despite it being chilly and damp, the fire hose activity was a firm favourite with the students revelling in the opportunity to spray water across the school oval. The school’s P&C provided morning tea for a gold coin donation. The proceeds being donated to Ellerslie fire brigade,. School principal, Jennifer Wall, said everyone had really enjoyed the day, parents included. “The students certainly learned a lot about what each of the emergency services do, and what to do in case of an emergency. “

Professionals reach fund raising milestone for NBCF

Thanks a million... THE National Breast Cancer Foundation is more than $1million better off thanks to real estate agents like Mildura’s Roccisano Property Group. And more than 150 ‘Professionals’ business owners, including Mildura principal and Professionals Victorian chairman, Tony Roccisano, were on hand recently to celebrate the landmark occasion at Sydney’s Luna Park that has reinforced the Professionals’ commitment as Diamond Partners of the NBCF. Sue Carrick, Head of Research Strategy at NBCF, received the oversized cheque for more than $1m from Mr Roccisano during an emotional presentation.

Diamond Partners since 2007, Professionals Real Estate undertakes to raise a minimum of $250,000 each year for the charity. Mr Roccisano said working with NBCF was one of the most satisfying elements of his career. “It’s a massive occasion for us”, he said. “ Statistics tell us that if you live a life that is unaffected by breast cancer you are well and truly in the minority. “We’ll find it (a cure), don’t worry about that. Every year we get closer and we won’t be taking our foot off the pedal until we get there.” To coincide with the presentation, Professionals conducted an

NBCF charity auction of sporting memorabilia, art, home and lifestyle products and other miscellaneous items to raise still more for NBCF. And the auction was just the tip of the iceberg for the Professionals who conduct their own group, and individual office, events each year to raise funds including ten pin bowling and gala nights, local community sales, garage sales and fetes to name a few. The Pink Ribbon month of October each year culminates fund raising activities for Professionals with all offices offering NBCF merchandise across the country. To make a donation to the

Mildura Weekly - 9/10/09

www.milduraweekly.com.au

Going bush for a good cause... NEARLY every year for more than two decades they’ve been taking turns to organise a ride and drive out into the bush. It’s not a race. It’s not an endurance test. It is, however, a mounted trail ride and horse-drawn vehicle event that has raised thousands of dollars in much-needed funds for a wide variety of charities and not-for-profit organisations including the Make-a-Wish Foundation, Angel Flights, the Royal Flying Doctor Service and local hospitals and nursing homes. The ‘Ten Day Horse Trail Ride’, an Australian Trail Horse Riders Association affiliated event, can trace its roots all the way back to 1986, and every year since – excluding 1987 and 2008 when equine influenza stopped the movement of horses around the nation – there has been a 10-day ride in either Victoria, New South Wales, or South Australia. The ride traditionally attracts between 80 and 150 horses; there is also often an assortment of horse-drawn vehicles, and more than 200 people. While some of the rides in the past have taken their name from the area in which they were staged – the ‘Darling/Anabranch Stockman’s Ride’ in 1990 for example, or 1997’s ‘Middleback Ranges Trail Ride’ in South Australia – there are others that make interesting reading. In 2003, the Victorians organised the ‘It’s all about Tubby’ ride, to be followed in 2004 by the South Australian’s ‘Steam ‘n’ Saddles’ ride. This year it was the turn of the South Aussies again, and they plumped for the safe and sensible ‘Central Mallee Trail Ride’, but for next year it’s the turn of the Sunraysia contingent to do the organising, and they’ve dubbed their latest ride ‘This Far on the Map 2010’. Organising committee member Donna Turvey explained the name referred to the distance on the map between the group’s intended starting point, on Burtundy Station, and the finish line – the Darling River, on Tapio Station, just 35 kilometres away. It doesn’t look that far, “but we won’t be riding as the crow flies”, Donna explained. A little creative thinking has seen the ride blow out to 200 kilometres, with the itinerary including several loop rides that will take in the varied riding environments of Burtundy, Cavan and Tapio Stations. There will be just three shifts of camp during the tenday event but, as is traditional, every rider and their horse must be self-sufficient. That self-sufficiency clause includes food and drinking water for the rider and their back-up team members, fuel for the back-up vehicle and camping equipment including a show-

What’s on

THE Dominic Chorale will host an afternoon of choral music and solos at 3.30pm this Sunday at the CWA Hall in Merbein. An afternoon tea will follow, with all interested people welcome.

Miss Spring Carnival THE search is on for the Doms Miss Spring Carnival 09. Every Friday for a month leading up to Melbourne Cup, Doms nightclub will showcase Mildura’s finest ladies in the search for Miss Spring Carnival 09. The concept follows the outstanding success of last year’s competition which attracted more than 50 entrants. Doms, Carla Jane, Visions, Surf Crew, City Limits and Fifi & Annie have come together to put up $1000 in cash and a $1000 shopping spree as part of the competition. Doms Search For Miss Spring Carnival 09 heats are on October 9, 16 and 23, concluding on Friday October 30. People interested in entering can call 0417 116 488.

Art on show A NEW exhibition entitled ‘Credo: Beyond Belief’ will be showcased by local artist Luci CallipariMarcuzzoat for the next few weeks at Stefano’s Gallery 25. Influenced by her family’s migration to Australia, the exhibition has a strong emphasis on faith, whilst highlighting the many facets of a woman’s life. The exhibition is dedicated to Luci’s father (Antonio Pietro Callipari), and will remain on show until Thursday, October 29.

“Most of the broad planning has been done, and we are expecting keen riders to begin signing up immediately.” – Donna Turvey. er and toilet, and feed for the horse. A tanker truck has been organised to supply stock water needs. The 2010 ride is scheduled to begin on Sunday, April 25 (Anzac Day) and run through to Tuesday, May 4. The thorough itinerary includes a daily ride, of between 20 and 30 kilometres, except starting Sunday, set aside for the initial muster, and Thursday, the 29th, when a gymkhana has been scheduled. “We’re right in the middle of the fine-tuning now,” Donna said. “Most of the broad planning has been done, and we are expecting keen riders to begin signing up immediately,” she said.

The planned 2010 event will be far from ‘just a trail ride’. The organising team, that also includes John and Judy Wass, Bill and Janine Barnfield, Lesley Allen, Louise Rowe and Karen Timmis has a few surprises up their collective sleeve. Take for instance the ‘Black Tie and Gumboots Dinner Dance’ on the first night out and to be staged in the Burtundy shearing shed. “Ladies frock up... and the gents too if that is your thing,” the promotional material reads. That, the committee says, should be good for quite a few laughs, especially since the same material asks the men the suit up... and makes the same offer for any girls who want to

do the same. Then there is the ‘fine’ system, making what might be viewed by some as a ‘not-sowelcome’ return for 2010. But, the committee argues, it is a ‘fine way’ to raise some money for charity. Participants can be fined for misbehaviour, for losing stuff or even doing the right thing! Bring a pocket full of loose change, Donna advises intending participants. Other activities planned during the 10-day ride include an outdoor movie night under the stars; a chance to wear pink for a day to aid the McGrath Foundation; a number of raffles and a gymkhana, with both horse and human events.

The horse events include a barrel race, fetch a pail of water, hold your mates horse and grab a prize; while the human events include a tug-owar, five-legged race for three, a bean bag race, blindfold obstacle race and a gumboot throw. Donna said a big thank you must go to the Barnfield, Davies and Byrnes families for allowing the ride to be staged on their respective properties. “We have been able to organise this ride with a little imagination, agreeable landowners and an industrious committee,” she said. For more information contact organising committee member Karen Timmis 0429 121 314.

Tractor pull THE Tractor Restoration & Appreciation Club of Sunraysia (TRACS) will host its milestone 10th Vintage Tractor Pull and Lanz ‘Bulldog’ challenge tomorrow. The venue will once again be the now traditional TRACS proving ground on Wilga Road, south of Red Cliffs. “Just follow the signs from ‘Big Lizzie’,” is the advice from club members for spectators. Action is planned to get under way from 10am, and the entry fee is just $5 for adults with children admitted free. The Red Cliffs Lions Club will cater for the day with food and drinks available

Junior basketballers in form • DOMINANT: Maddie Matthews on her way to another basket at the Horsham basketball tournament held last weekend.

MILDURA’S WHK Junior Heat representative basketballers have started their 2009/2010 season in dominant fashion, with all seven teams making their respective Division One Grand Finals in Horsham last weekend. The impressive display was an “indication of things to come” according to coaches, who believe this season could be Mildura’s year to shine. Out of the seven teams to reach their Grand Finals four came away with the gold, including all three girls teams (Under 12s, 14s and 16s), and the Under 12s boys team. The Under 12 girls, coached by Sue Bryans, got the ball rolling, beating Ararat, Portland and Horsham’s second side by an average of 40 points in the opening rounds. Horsham One were the only team to offer resistance against the Mildura brigade, but even that late challenge to their undefeated streak did little to deter the youngsters, with the team eventually accounting for Portland in the final 46 to 12. Dale Clark regained most of his Under 12 Basketball Victoria Country Council State Championship side from two seasons ago, stepping up to the Under 14 girls coaching ranks. His side also went through the tournament undefeated, with their final win over Ararat (40 to 12) a fantastic start to what’s being tipped as another successful year. Under 16s girls coach Alan Morris will be looking for back-toback BVCC titles, despite the bulk of his side classed as bottom age. Only two players from last year’s championship team remain, and are both going to be vital in help-

gled for consistency throughout the tournament, winning two from five games played. They were defeated by 20 points in their Grand Final, and will be looking to make amends at the next event in Swan Hill where all Division One through to Three teams will contest their next tournament on October 24 and 25. • GOOD START: Mikayla Delcastegne (LEFT) and Caitlin McLachlan (BELOW) both shone for their Under 16 Junior Heat side, one of four Mildura teams to claim victory at the recent Horsham Tournament.

ing their younger team mates develop. Regardless of youth the girls still proved a force, with their first game against Portland, a one point victory, the only game to push them. Mildura proved relentless after the early stumble, making up for the near loss with a 33 to 20 win against Portland in the final. Of the four boy’s representative teams to make the trip only one tasted success, with newcomer coach Grant Brown taking the Under 12 boys to their first win of the year against Portland (39 to 22). Led by coach Ian Sandiman the Under 14 boys looked the goods in the opening rounds, defeating Horsham, Ararat and Hamilton

comfortably. They again faced Horsham in the Grand Final, with the home team out for redemption after their earlier defeat to Mildura by two points. Horsham turned the tables in the final, winning by 11 points to deny Mildura a tournament win. Like their Under 14 counterparts the Under 16 boys were similarly favourites prior to their Grand Final, recording wins against Horsham, Warrnambool and Portland. And while a mass of talented locals were quick to shine, it wasn’t enough to account for a determined Ararat side, who beat Mildura in a tight Grand Final 29 to 24. The Under 18 boys side strug-

Koori teams all set for big 20/20 Challenge REPRESENTATIVES from six separate Indigenous communities will be hitting out for top honours in Twenty20 cricket when the inaugural Murray River Challenge Cup takes place under lights in Swan Hill this Sunday. Teams from Mildura, Robinvale, Swan Hill, Kerang, Echuca and Shepparton will be made up of local Indigenous community members, Victoria Police and local cricketers, with the round robin competition getting underway at Swan Hill Recreation Oval from 9am. The finals will start at 7pm. Players and community member will also get the chance to meet former Australian cricketer, and Murray River Challenge Cup Ambassador, Jason Gillespie, with the fast bowler to present the winning trophy and Jason Gillespie Medal to the best player in the final. Swan Hill Rural City Council’s Aboriginal Affairs Manager and Murray River Challenge Cup Committee Chair Rob Connelly said the competition aimed to promote stronger partnerships between local Indigenous communities and other areas of the community. “Sport, in this case Twenty20 cricket, is an effective way to break down barriers and for members across the community to interact, therefore developing and building relationships,” Mr Connelly said. “The original concept of this competition came from an idea from Sunraysia Institute of TAFE’s Alan Walsh, which has progressed into the Murray River Challenge Cup. It will be a great family day out for everyone across the region – all are welcome.” Swan Hill police Inspector Garry Bennett said the day would encourage stronger ties between police and the Indigenous community,

team sport, in this case cricket,” Mr Walsh said. Swan Hill Rural City Council Mayor Cr Greg Cruickshank encouraged the community to get behind the event. “It is fantastic that Swan Hill will be hosting the very first Murray River Challenge Cup, this is a huge event for Swan Hill and a great opportunity for our region as a whole,” he said. “It would be great to see our community out there on October 11 throwing their support behind our local team and this event.” State selectors for the Victorian Imparja Cup side (which is played every year in Alice Springs) will also be in attendance, giving local talent the opportunity to progress through the Victorian Indigenous pathway system and the potential to represent Victoria at a national level.

while highlighting the region’s top sporting talent. “This competition not only aims to promote greater harmony between Aboriginal people and police, it is a great opportunity to showcase young Aboriginal cricketing talent in our region,” he said.

“I’m pleased that this inaugural event will kick off in Swan Hill. The bigger picture is that if this event continues through our other five communities, it has the potential to eventually become a state-wide recognised event.” Sunraysia Institute of

TAFE’s Koorie Liaison Officer Alan Walsh also praised the event and its potential. “It will be great to see ambassadors from our region representing their communities in this competition and it can only enhance and encourage the younger generation into

Mildura Weekly - 9/10/09

The Bathurst 1000 has been an institution in Australian motorsport for more than 40 years. Both Todd and

Kelly duo primed for DESPITE racing as part of the newest team in the V8 Supercar Championship, former Sunraysia drivers Todd and Rick Kelly say they’re confident of a good result at the sport’s headlining event, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 this weekend. Both Todd and Rick have stood on the top step of the podium at Bathurst during their V8 Supercar careers, so know what it takes to win the mammoth event. They say their recent pace at the L&H 500 at Phillip Island is an added confidence booster going into this weekend. “The pace we had at Phillip Island was really second-to-none,” Rick said. “The weather conditions and everything suited us right down to the ground. “We had a couple of little hiccups that took us out of contention for the race win and since then we’ve done everything we can to make sure those hiccups don’t happen here. “The guys have done a really great job at preparing our Jack Daniel’s Commodore and all the guys at Kelly Racing really have the right mindset.” The Kelly brothers, along with team-mates Nathan Pretty and Ben Collins took part in the traditional road trip to Bathurst this week, completing the journey this year in a custom 1953 Chev. Both drivers will have their work cut out for them this weekend, as this year’s event is being touted as one of the most competitive in recent years with more driver combinations capable of taking out the race compared to previous years. One of the big talking points in the week leading up to the event is whether Team Vodafone can win a record four consecutive Bathurst 1000s.

• FOCUS: Rick Kelly gets in ‘the zone’ ahead of his next challenge

Key Kelly fast facts If Todd and Rick Kelly win this weekend’s Bathurst 1000 they’ll be the first brothers to win the event in a V8 Supercar. But they won’t be the only brothers to have won on ‘the mountain’. Geoff and David Brabham won the Super Touring version of the Bathurst 1000 in 1997 in a BMW320i. And while they are yet to win the event as team-mates, Rick and Todd both have Bathurst 1000 crowns to their names - three between them. Rick and Todd are among only three pairings in this weekend’s event to feature both drivers as former Bathurst winners. The others are Mark Skaife and Greg Murphy, and Craig Lowndes and Jamie Whincup. Rick still holds the record as the youngest driver ever to win the

Bathurst 1000, a feat he achieved in 2003, racing with Greg Murphy. He also holds the record as the youngest driver to win a round of the Australian Touring Car/V8 Supercar championship. Meanwhile, this weekend, Rick and Todd’s race car will feature the first Wingcam camera, (LEFT), in V8 Supercar history. It’s one of more than 100 cameras which will be used on-track, in concrete kerbing, in the air and in the pits over the course of the weekend. Kelly Racing has produced a carbon fibre rear wing specifically for the new camera, which will give forward-facing views down the righthand side of the brothers’ car during the race.

Rick Kelly have won the event in the past, but never as team-mates. This weekend could change all that.

Bathurst 1000 win

• From previous page. Another new factor this year is the increase in the number of pit stops drivers will make due to the shift to CSR E85 ethanol fuel, which the cars burn quicker. This means there could be as many as eight pit stops per car just for fuel during this weekend’s race. In terms of the track itself, there has been some major work on the notorious ‘Esses’, just after the cars crest Skyline, all in the interests of safety. For almost 20 years there has been a deep gravel trap inside the Esses, designed to catch the cars if they go in too hot. This year, the gravel section has been replaced with paving, which has been given the thumbs up by Rick Kelly, who

inspected the track earlier this week. “It is going to be a big benefit as it will reduce the amount of debris that comes on to the track from the sand trap that has been there in the past,” Rick said. “There is still a strip of grass there behind the kerb to stop cars going too far over the back of the kerb and gaining an advantage. “That small grass strip will still bring a bit of dust and debris on to the track, but all in all I think it is a big step in the right direction and a smart move.” Qualifying for the big race takes place today from 2.10pm, followed by the Top 10 Shootout tomorrow, starting from 3.45pm. Sunday’s big race starts at 10.30am. Teams will complete 161 laps.

THE car Rick and Todd Kelly drove from their Melbourne headquarters to Bathurst this week was a 1953 V8-powered Chev that the brothers worked upon themselves here in Mildura. “We’ve had this ‘53 Chev for a while so we thought we would pull it out, finish it off and give it a drive,” Rick said. It follows a tradition for the brothers of driving out-of-the-ordinary vehicles on the annual pilgrimage to Bathurst, along with thousands of other motor racing enthusiasts. “Todd, Nathan (Pretty) and I all used to drive to Bathurst together in an old motorhome and we used to call it the ‘happy camper’,” Rick said. “Ever since then we have formed a tradition of driving to Bathurst each year. “After the motorhome we did up a combi van, we drove up in a Hummer once, we bought an old Kingswood and towed a caravan one year and now it’s snowballed into something that’s a lot of fun.” The Kelly brothers made the trip with teammates Nathan Pretty and Ben Collins, who will drive the second Jack Daniel’s car this weekend. Despite hailing from England, many Australian motor racing fans would already have seen Collins’ driving prowess, though they might not have known it at the time. Collins was a stunt double for actor Daniel Craig behind the wheel of James Bond’s Aston Martin in the Bond film Quantum of Solace. This will be his first Bathurst 1000.

Charity golf day for a good cause MURRAY House and Wentworth Guides were both winners at the Wentworth Rotary Club’s Charity Golf Day, with the event held at the Wentworth Golf Club last Sunday. Sixty-seven players from Mildura, Coomealla and Wentworth contested the event, a significant improvement on last year’s 28 participants, with each team nominating a local charity as their beneficiaries. Scores were tight at the halfway mark of the competition, with only one stroke separating the first and second placed teams. Ben and Brent Love, Lucas Brown and Phil Lawn came away eventual winners, with their charity Wentworth Guides receiving $500 as a result, which will go toward renovations of the group’s kitchen. Second placed team Peter Bicker, Doug Rowsell, Wayne Whelan and Matt Lynch played for Wentworth SES, with third placed team Greg Love, Phil Matotek, W. Carmichael and A. Rix representing the Wentworth Scouts. A number of goods were also auctioned off at the event, with local MP John Williams guest auctioneer, with all funds raised to be donated to Murray House.

Bec wins wakeboard World Championship By VINNIE RODI MILDURA wakeboarding star Bec Gange will return home from the South Korean World Wakeboarding Championships with gold around her neck, helping her Australian team mates reach champion status for the third consecutive year. The 19-year-old said she was ecstatic with her team’s performance, saying the win had been an experience to remember. “It’s the first time I’ve been on a wakeboarding team, and it was a lot of fun hanging out with my fellow Australians, cheering one another on,” Bec said. Held on Lake Uiam in the province of Gangwon, the titles were a first for the youngster, who said she’d enjoyed the chance to take on the world’s best. “It was great meeting a whole group of people in the wakeboarding industry, and seeing some fierce competition up close,” she said. “Local competitions are nothing compared to the standard I saw at the Worlds, where some people were landing unbelievable moves. It was a real eye-opener, and an experience I’m going to take a lot away from.” As a newcomer to the ‘team’ environment of wakeboarding, Bec said she’d felt a lot of pressure to perform, with not only her medal hopes, but that of her team’s, on the line. “I felt like I had a lot more pressure on my riding because the team was relying on me to do  well,” she said. “Thankfully we came away with the win, and I was able to contribute to that.” And while the support from fellow team mates was helpful, there was one familiar face in the crowd (mum Maggie) doing her best to ensure her daughter came out on top. “There’s nothing better then having a family member there to celebrate the good rides, and help you get over the bad ones,” Bec said. In addition to the team win Bec also finished sixth in the Open Women’s singles competition, a fair effort for a teenager at only her first World titles. She said that while she’d been initially disappointed not to medal in the singles competition, she’d quickly realised the finish was still an incredible achievement. “Sixth is pretty good for my first Open Women’s competition,” she said. “I originally said I wanted to make finals,

Unfortunately my final run let me down, and all I can do is focus on the positives for next time.” Choppy weather conditions made life difficult for all competitors, with Bec saying she struggled to adapt. “The weather  wasn’t in anyone’s favour,” she said. “At the  end it came down to who

was standing up and who was falling off their boards, and unfortunately I  didn’t handle the choppy water as well as I should have.” Originally slated to compete in the junior division, a mistake on behalf of event organisers saw Bec receive the late call-up. And while most 19-year-olds would have succumbed to the pressure of taking on competitors vastly more experienced, Bec said that if anything she felt a lessening of expectation. “I don’t think the move threw me off one bit,” she said. “If anything it took the pressure off because I was no longer a top seed in my division.” And while nothing compared to winning world gold, experiencing the cultural differences between Australia and Korea had definitely come close. “The whole experience was incredible,” Bec said. “To get to a place after a 17 hour flight where no-one speaks English, and where people live so differently was crazy.” The championships marked the end of a six month overseas trip for the youngster, which saw her attend wakeboarding camps and competitions in America in an effort to attract new sponsors and improve her skill set. She said she’d succeeded in landing one new sponsor, Aus-

tralian Air Nautiques, and had even debuted a number of tricks at the championships. “I’m also featured in a few mini-videos on some wakeboarding websites, so my name is out there now, and hopefully something happens as a result,” she said. Bec said that she was looking forward to some quiet time once she returned home later next month, before setting her sights on her next major event in Renmark. “I plan on hanging out in Mildura for a while, and possibly organising some coaching clinics for anyone interested while I’m home,” she said. “Things will be pretty quiet until the Australian Pro tour starts again next year, so I plan on spending a lot of time on the water, preparing for another busy year. “I also want to head back to America and compete in the American Pro tour in 2010, so I won’t have a lot of time to relax.” Bec said that she’d learnt a lot from the experience, and would take a lot of positives out of her trip. “I’ve learnt a lot this year in regards to my riding,” she said. “And I’m looking forward to putting everything into practice back home.”
