Year of the Cath 2013 PERSON OF THE YEAR By DANNY BUTTLER FOR everyone except rusted-on Liberal Party members, Cathy McGowan was the feelgood story of 2013. The Indigo Valley farmer won support from Wodonga to Alexandra as she swept to an unlikely and historic victory as the Independent candidate for the federal seat of Indi. For her efforts in restoring dignity, passion and common-sense to local politics, the Albury Wodonga News Weekly had no hesitation in declaring Ms McGowan our Person of the Year. The battle for the north-east Victoria electorate won headlines across the nation as the McGowan-led Voice for Indi campaign threatened the Liberal stronghold of incumbent Sophie Mirabella. In a federal election that saw political cynicism reach new heights, the Indi campaign became a rallying call for those who still believed in the power of politics to affect genuine change. People who had never joined a political party flocked to join with disenchanted ALP, Liberal and National party members in supporting the McGowan campaign. This was genuine grassroots politics that energised the community. The campaign also had dramatic twists, with a knife-edge count keeping the result in doubt for more than a week after the polls closed on 7 September. The result became inevitable only after 1000 votes cast for Ms McGowan were found after being misplaced by polling staff.

Cathy McGowan and jubilant Voice for Indi campaigners at Parliament House in December. 112895 When the final vote was counted, there were just 431 votes separating the McGowan and Mirabella camps. Ms McGowan said that, while she ran as an Independent candidate, it was a community win and she did so with a strong backing of volunteers. She was never “in it alone”. “We couldn’t have achieved this result without the over 600 active volunteers who worked tirelessly behind the

scenes to engage the communities all across Indi,” she said. “All our volunteers followed the Voice for Indi values, particularly those of respect, and I think the people of Indi saw in us an alternative to the current political system.” In December, Ms McGowan’s supporters arrived en masse for her maiden speech to the House of Representatives.

The orange-clad army created an unusually festive mood in the nation’s capital as they enjoyed the culmination of their hard work. Ms McGowan said her first duty to the people of Indi was to find out what they wanted her to do for them. “I will listen: I will listen to the older people who have lost touch with their grandchildren, the teenagers who suffer with mental health issues (and

their families), the people who know what it is like to feel hardship, adversity and yet get on top of it.” She ended her speech quoting from Margaret Mead, another woman who sought to bring change to the world around her. “Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

Moving on, still caring THE Carevan Foundation starts the new year with a new CEO, with wellknown group head Jodie Tiernan making the decision to step down. The 2012 Wodonga citizen of the year, Di Mant, who has had extensive experience in community development and adult education, is set to take over from Jodie. “It has been a very tough decision for me and one that I have not considered lightly, but due to a position I have been offered, I will be stepping down as CEO of Carevan,� Jodie said of her decision. “I am so emotionally attached to Carevan and always will be, but with an offer that has been put to me, I am unable to stay Carevan’s CEO however I am more than delighted to stay on the board.� The Carevan Foundation is aimed at helping to feed the homeless and disadvantaged of rural Australia. At Christmas time they delivered 178 hampers to the needy in the community and were recently named best community group on the border. Jodie thanked the volunteers, sponsors and community for “believing in me and allowing me to run the foundation�. “I hope you feel that I have given

it my all and really bought Carevan to a good place that is a wellrespected organisation and one that really does look out for those less fortunate living in our community,� she said. “I have enjoyed putting my heart and soul into an organistion that truly gives so much back. It really has been a pleasure. I have met so many wonderful people while working for Carevan whether it be volunteers, clients, sponsors, all of my Midnight Basketball kids and especially my Westside Wednesday night kids, families, the list goes on.� She said she had met a lot of “wonderful people working in services to assist members of the community�. “I have learned so much from all of you and look forward to continuing to give back and caring about the community my family and I live in,� she said. “Stand up Albury Wodonga and be proud of what we all have achieved to make our community a better place to live and one NOT without soul or meaning!� Carevan founder John Brabant thanked Jodie for her hard work at Carevan. “Words could never do justice to

Thanks to one Cathy McGowan, the Victorian side of the Border made national news as the impossible was made possible and the nay-sayers were silenced. From kitchen table meetings to Parliament House, the journey of Ms McGowan’s rise is one that captured the nation, but more importantly fired the hope and imaginations of the people of Indi - a previously apolitical region. The Hume Highway duplication was finally done, with the last leg completed in Holbrook. A major celebration was held as then Prime Minister Julia Gillard took the time to visit Holbrook and point out not only the convenience of the new road, but the massive increase in safety. The Albury Regional Art Gallery, after much deliberation and community discussion, was given the go-ahead. And of course the Border has had its fair share of death, destruction and sadness much due to road accidents, but some thanks to the careless, malicious natures of individuals. Good and bad, be assured NewsWeekly will strive to deliver the quality community news of your region in 2014.

Rescuers fight virus By KRYSTEN MANUEL WODONGA Dog Rescue (WDR) had quite a year in 2013, but is now setting its sights on grants to combat parvovirus. “We’ve actually had an application in for a grant for a vaccination program with the DEPI since September, but we haven’t heard anything,” WDR volunteer Peta McRae said. “We want to get them vaccinated before they come into the pen because we’ve had so many parvo cases, and we’ve lost one dog from parvo.” WDR were told the applications were still being sorted. 2013 saw 216 dogs and 138 cats re-homed up until 10 December - a mighty effort for an organisation funded by donations of time, money and goods. “It’s been a big year,” WDR volunteer Dee Keogh said. “November/ December were really busy with a lot of intakes, surrenders and the pound. “Currently we have 20 adult cats in care and 36 kittens. The pound currently has nine kittens in there and we’ve re-homed 11 this year. “And we have at least 60 dogs in care.” It seems a frightful number but of course, among the sad cases there are always great success stories.

Local girl Victoria Ellis will be entering politics through the YMCA Youth Parliament Program.

Teens take over NSW

Dee Keogh and Jim Toole with recently surrendered dogs Amber and Mitch. “We got a three-legged Burmese cat in last year,” Ms Keogh said. “I kept him past his eight days trying to find his mum and dad, we couldn’t so we brought him in to rescue, we got him vaccinated and microchipped and we put him into foster care. “He was in for 17 weeks and his family turned up.

“We just need people to be more responsible,” WDR volunteer Jim Toole said. “They need to get them de-sexed, microchipped, vaccinated and registered.” Ms McRae added people needed to think about the animal before getting it. “Don’t just go and buy a puppy because it’s cute, think about the breed,” she said.

They’d been overseas for six months and had rented their house with the view to look after the cat and obviously they didn’t. If it wasn’t for us he would have been put to sleep after eight days.” This year, WDR is hoping Border residents will be more responsible with their pets and heed advice and warnings from professionals.

ALBURY teens Victoria Ellis and Mary Schnelle may not be old enough to vote but they are about to enter politics - for a few days at least. The dynamic duo has been selected to join the YMCA NSW Youth Parliament program, a program that gives young people between the ages of 15 and 18 a voice in the running of NSW. The Youth Members for Albury, Victoria and Mary will join committees in different portfolios, including Roads and Ports, Indigenous Health, Justice and Law Reform and Education. The pair will research and create a bill to address an issue they are passionate about, following the same processes as their adult counterparts. They also get the

The bills will be presented to MPs and Ministers in the NSW Parliament in July.

OPERATION Drink Drive 1 (ODD1) was a success across the state of NSW, though Albury Police are disappointed in the six drink drivers caught around the area. “There was just short of 3000 breath tests conducted and about 134 traffic infringement notices issued for a range of infringements,� Albury Police Sergeant Dean Miller said. Sgt Miller said six drink drivers were caught. Of the six, one 41-yearold woman on her P2 licence exhibited a high-range PCA at .215 and was caught on Friday at approximately 9.30am on David Street. Across the state during Operation at Drink Drive 1, which commenced 12.01am on Thursday and concluded at 11.59pm on Saturday, nine people were killed on the roads, 110,030 breath tests were conducted and 139 motorists were charged with drink driving offences. During the same period last year, less tests were conducted at 131,494, but more than double the charges were laid at 316. Operations commander of the NSW Police Force’s Traffic and Highway Patrol Command, Superintendent Stuart Smith, said despite a significant reduction in the number of motorists caught drink-driving, the results were still disappointing. “The figures are down more than 50 per cent on last year, but too many people are still taking the risk and driving while over the limit,� Sgt Smith said. “Again I am pleading for people to heed our warnings; if they take the risk to drink and drive then they will be caught.� Sgt Miller said the state-wide effort should be a big reminder to people that of the police were targeting these kinds behaviour continually. “One drink driver is one too many for me,� he said.

2013 – The year that was…

Hume Highway duplication finally opened JUNE of 2013 saw - finally - the official opening of the Hume Highway duplication in Holbrook. The 808-kilometre upgrade is comprised of 205 bridges and 49 bypasses and shaves off three hours in the trip from Sydney to Melbourne. At the opening, then Prime Minister Gillard said in the year the duplication of the Highway was proposed there were 2500 crashes and 17 deaths on the NSW section of the highway. Now, with a dual carriage way and a shorter length of highway, crashes are in the low hundreds and fatalities down to single digits. One man who received a special mention by Ms Gillard was Roads and Maritime Services superintendent officer Barry Herring - and wasn’t he chuffed! “The biggest thrill of my life was yesterday when Julia Gillard read my name out and said I was the oldest guy working on the highway at 69 years of age,” he said with a modest grin. “It put goosebumps on the

he was 16 years old, adding up to 53 years of bridgework. The opening of the duplication signified the closing of an era for Mr Herring, and a chance to look back at his life’s work which was once “nothing but a goat track.”

THE anti-abortion protesters and their vigil outside the Englehardt Street fertility clinic is no doubt a hot topic. In April last year, the NewsWeekly’s Trevor Jackson got the public up to speed with the issue by speaking with Doctor Kathy Lewis. “I think they have absolutely no purpose here, except to upset people,” Dr Lewis told NewsWeekly. “If they want to preach about it, they can preach about it in their own space, but to occupy a space that is not related to them and impose their ideas on

people is totally inappropriate.” While the protesters considered they offered advice in a non-obstructive manner, Dr Lewis didn’t see it that way. “They go to people’s car windows and they do obstruct people,” she said. “They chase people across the street - someone is going to be run over. They block people walking along the street - their partners or people who are with them become quite irate. It is just totally unacceptable,” she said. On the other side of the fence, one of the protesters, Phil

Murphy, spoke to NewsWeekly and claimed the protest was “unobtrusive.” “We don’t try to take away anyone’s rights,” he said. “We don’t stop them - I stand here and I don’t block the footpath. We offer a brochure with information. We just stand and watch. We haven’t stopped anyone. We never have. We’re here about respecting people’s rights, absolutely.” However, the battle rages on as patients, nearby residents and local professionals beg Albury council and police to step in.

The rise of Cathy McGowan

Wodonga Library will not put filters on their computers as it limits what people can search too much.

Filth found in the library REPORTS of a man looking up pictures of semi-naked boys at Wodonga Library sparked debate as to whether an internet filtering system should be used. NewsWeekly was alerted of the issue by an anonymous caller who said the man was spied by a 13-year-old boy who took photos of the man and later had his father report the incident to the Wodonga Police. “My friend’s son spotted it and was actually sitting next to the guy who was rubbing his legs together,” the woman said. “My friend’s son took photos at the scene and saw the man walk away with an erection. “My friend took the photos

to the Wodonga police so they could investigate it.” “It’s just disgusting, it’s just so disgusting - and it’s not the first time. I’ve seen the same sort of thing happen but with a different person.” Public outrage flooded social media, with many people asking why the Wodonga Library doesn’t use a filtering system to stop users looking up offensive material, especially in a places children frequented. Wodonga Council said they were “pretty comfortable with what’s in place.” “Incidents like this are very few and far between,” community relations manager, Sue Be-

attie said. Wodonga’s director of community development, Debora Mundra said the library didn’t use ‘parental blocks’ because they tended to block legitimate sites. Wodonga Police also said the issue was “not something to be concerned about.” “This is the first incident that we’ve been made aware of for this sort of thing,” Detective Acting Sergeant Murray Sleep said. “It’s not what we’d call something that happens all the time, it’s one of those things that happen once in a blue moon.” Though residents begged to differ.

THE battle for the seat of Indi was well underway when Danny Buttler’s front page article surfaced in August. At this point, Cathy McGowan had ruffled Liberal feathers enough to warrant big name politicians such as Barnaby Joyce and Joe Hockey being flown in to announce equally big dollar promises. And Ms McGowan couldn’t have been happier. “This is exactly what happens when you are an Independent,”she said. “It is already good and will only get better. “People will pay attention to us, individual people’s votes will become very important, people will be listened to ... this is just a taste of what will happen if I get elected.” Politics and international relations lecturer at La Trobe University Dr Benjamin Habib said the reaction of the Liberals indicated their vulnerability, but predicted Ms McGowan would not win the election. “Cathy McGowan has run a clever campaign,” he said. “But the fact is that it is a safe seat and Sophie (Mirabella) will probably win, but probably with a reduced margin.” But against all odds, the Voice For Indi emerged loud and proud, beating Ms Mirabella who had held the seat for the Liberals since 2001.

Cathy McGowan captured the imagination of Indi and the nation with her stunning victory. 112895

2013 – The year that was…

Groove Saint’s violent rating ONE of Albury’s most popular nightclubs was rated as one of the most violent in New South Wales in December. The club was ranked as one of the 21 worst venues in the state for an excessive number of violent incidents according to information compiled by the Bureau of Crime Statics and Research (BOCSAR). There were 12 violent incidents recorded at Groove Saint for the 2012-’13 financial year, leading to a ‘level two’ classification, further leading to the imposition of special restrictions. As of 8 December, Groove Saint had to cease alcohol service 30 minutes before closing, not serve glass and breakable containers after midnight, plus alcohol time-outs and the provision of free water and food for 10 minutes every hour after midnight. Albury Police chief Inspector Kim Sorensen said while the statistics left nothing to interpretation, they didn’t necessarily mean crime at Groove Saint, or in Albury, had reached a dire level. “I wouldn’t want people thinking we have a hub of crim-

“I’ve come from Newcastle which is notorious for its nightlife violence and these types of restrictions have been successful up there, such as prohibiting glass,” he said.

THE 2013 World Masters Games in Italy were dominated by local athletes Rachel Little and Donna Burgess, taking home four gold and two silver. “I’m just so rapt,” Burgess said. “I knew Rachel would run well but I didn’t think I would.” Little was equally stunned, but owes her success to her husband and trainer, Ken Little, as well as Team Velocity. “It’s all down to technique and Ken is so far ahead of everybody,” Little said. “Other trainers and athletes

over there couldn’t believe our technique and that we’d come from this little town. The other coaches picked Ken’s brains all week!” Both women were up against the odds, going from temperatures of 11 degrees to 38 degrees, jet-lag from a 26-hour flight, and not having had competition since March but walking into what was the middle of the season for many competitors. While it was an emotional series of wins for both competitors, Burgess was particularly

emotional once winning the 800m. “My Dad ran in the World Masters in 1998 and he won a silver medal in the 800m,” she said. “I took his medal over there with me. He’s passed now but if he had of been around he would have been proud - I went one better and got a gold!” Burgess and Little will continue training with Team Velocity, with their eyes set to defend their titles in France, 2015 at the World Athletics Championships.

REGARDING the abortion protesters in Albury’s Englehardt Street, on Albury Council property (the footpath and nature strip), why hasn’t a ranger/ parking officer penalised these people who are obviously not sticking to the conditions imposed, if any, by Albury Council, by all accounts (News Weekly, 18 December) by Krysten Manuel? As expressed in this publication, there is real danger of someone being run over by a motor vehicle because of females trying to get away from this group’s harassment, and running directly out onto the road. In the past, I have witnessed an Albury Council ranger stop a Christian religious group, (about 12 people), from walking up Dean Street singing songs without a permit, which I couldn’t believe at the time as they were not rowdy or interfering with anyone, near the corner of Dean and David streets. Why have the Albury Police allowed a group to interfere with individuals going about their business, with enough problems, I would say, without these fanatics “making their day� ? Why haven’t the Albury Police issued move on orders, like apparently they do in Dean Street for trouble makers, and issued appropriate fines as they do? Surely the Albury Council and Albury Police have enough intestinal fortitude to cut the head off this group that has been making their point for far too long now in a public place.

Albury Council and Albury Police, just do something. Ray Williams, Albury.

Clear vision THANK you Krysten Manuel for such a clear article regarding the Englehardt Street Clinic. I believe that the issue is a community one as the question is not whether abortion should or should not be conducted, but whether the protestors should be allowed to harass the people who attend the clinic - and I point this out to Denise Cameron that no matter how much she quotes cases and goes on and on about old tactics, she is still supporting the undignified actions of her devotees. Again I repeat that I, and the large number of Albury/Wodonga community people including the neighbours who live in the area, are against the protestors standing outside the clinic. We have our own personal opinions regarding being for or against abortion. We are giving our respect of allowing others to make their own personal choices without being harangued and persecuted. It is time that Denise and her cohorts were moved along and stopped from exercising their idiotic antics of trying to control the wider society - as was exercised in the days of the cruelty of the Inquisition (thankfully most of the wider society has left that period of history behind). Wendy Cole, Albury.

LEAVE AND LIVE. CALL FOR HOLIDAY VIGILANCE MANY holiday-makers make the most of the warmer summer months camping and caravanning. Unfortunately, fires also dominate the warmer months, meaning visitors must take extra precautions and know their fire action plan at their holiday destination. Following these simple tips by the NSW Rural Fire Service could mean the difference between life and death. Before travelling people should check fire danger ratings and bushfire alerts at www. rfs.nsw.gov.au or on the Fires Near Me Smartphone application. Weather conditions at www.bom.gov.au.

CHECKLIST:

caravan has a smoke ¡ The alarm, fire extinguisher and

¡

fire blanket. Electrical and gas equipment is secure, appropriately fitted, in good working order, and turned off while travelling.

HOW YOU CAN CALL FOR HELP: Survival kit includes a working battery operated radio, protective clothing, woollen blankets and water. Setting up campfires or barbecues: Place fires and barbecues at least three metres from flammable materials, on an existing fire site or cleared area where the wind will blow flames away from tents. Fires should be attended by a responsible adult.

¡

When camping or caravanning always have a fire plan for your location.

¡ Have a water supply. ¡ Extinguish fires, candles and lanterns before bed.

FACING THE WORST:

¡ If you’re caught in a fire, call triple-zero. ¡ Park off the road in a clear area away from trees. ¡ Face your car towards the fire. ¡ Turn off the engine and turn

¡ ¡

¡ ¡ ¡ ¡

¡

¡

on headlights and hazard lights. Close windows and air vents. Stay low in the car to protect yourself from radiant heat. Cover yourself with a woollen blanket. Drink water and cover your mouth with a damp cloth. Stay down until the sound of the fire has passed.

BUSHFIRE DEATHS HAPPEN CLOSE TO HOME.

AS families enjoy their summer camping trips, a new video clip just released by the Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) gives advice on the best ways to ensure campfires remain safe. “Victoria is one of the most bushfire prone areas in the world, but unfortunately about 10 per cent of our bushfires start from escaped campfires,� DEPI’s land and fire regional manager for Hume Shaun Lawlor said. “Knowing how to properly light and maintain a campfire is vital to ensure it doesn’t go bush. “Campfires are not allowed on a day of Total Fire Ban and it is your responsibility to check if any declarations are in place before you light one.� Penalties for lighting fires illegally include large fines and possible imprisonment. “There are on-the-spot fines for people who fail to comply with campfire safety rules, and there are additional patrols planned this summer throughout the Hume region, especially on days of high fire danger,� Mr Lawlor said. “In the Hume region, there has been a total of

28 fires on public land so far this season with 22 occurring in the Goulburn district around Shepparton, Mooroopna and Nathalia. “A number of these were due to unattended campfires or were deliberately lit,� he said. “Victoria Police and the fire agencies have a zero-tolerance approach to malicious or negligent fires and known problem areas will be targeted more strongly than ever this summer.� The video clip can be viewed at www.youtube. com/watch?v=tA-5SX6qT08 or www.facebook. com/DEPIHume.



       TO BE LEGAL A CAMPFIRE MUST:

metres of ground and airspace around your fire. Be no more than one square metre in dimension and should be kept to the minimum necessary to cook or keep warm. Have someone in attendance at all times who has the capacity and means to extinguish the fire if necessary. Never leave a fire unattended, even for a short while. Be completely extinguished before leaving. This should be done with water, not soil, as fires can still smoulder under soil. If a campfire is cool to touch, it is safe to leave.

LEAVE AND LIVE. ? DID YOU KNOW More injuries occur during bushfires from people falling off a roof than from burns? Keep your gutters clean and fill them with water from the ground.

TAKE ACTION, USE GOOD SENSE THERE are many myths surrounding bushfires and what people should do if caught in the thick of it. The NSW Rural Fire Service has provided some facts to debunk common misconceptions that could well save your life. The most important myth to eliminate is the belief ‘it won’t happen to me’. While planning and preparing may only give peace of mind, not doing so puts families in serious danger. MYTH: Filling the bath tub when a fire is approaching is to sit in. FACT: The NSW RFS recommends that you fill your bath and sinks with water in case the water supply to your home is cut off. This water can then be used to put out small spot fires that may start in and around the home. MYTH: Standing on my roof hosing it down with water will help. FACT: During a bush fire more injuries occur from people falling off a roof than from burns. Filling your gutters with water and hosing down your roof will help stop spot fires due to ember attack, but any hosing should be done from the ground.

MYTH: A house can explode if it catches on fire. FACT: Houses do not just explode, it’s what you have stored under your home that may explode. You should consider what flammable and explosive items you have around/ under your home and where you should store them in order to reduce the risk to your home. MYTH: If I know the back streets in my suburb or town really well, it will be ok for me to leave at the very last minute. FACT: Smoke from a fire can limit visibility. You may become confused or disorientated. Power lines and fallen trees on roads may be hard to see making driving dangerous. It is always better to leave early before the fire arrives.

MYTH: I’ll be fine; the bush is a few streets away. FACT: Most houses are burnt in bushfires because of ember attacks. Embers can cause fires many kilometres in front of the main fire and can start falling up to an hour before the fire arrives at your home. You need to make sure that your home is properly prepared to withstand ember attack. MYTH: There will always be a fire truck available to fight a bushfire threatening my home. FACT: There will never be as many fire trucks as there are houses. Do not depend on a fire truck being available at your home.

CLIMATE IMPACTS ON RISK CLIMATE change is already increasing the risk of bushfires. Extreme fire weather has increased over the last 30 years in south east Australia, with these hot, dry conditions having a major influence on bushfires. Climate change is making hot days hotter, and heatwaves longer and more frequent. In south east Australia the fire season is becoming longer, reducing the opportunities for hazard reduction burning. These changes have been most marked in spring, with

fire weather extending into October and March. The fire season will continue to lengthen into the future, further reducing the opportunities for safe hazard reduction burning. Recent severe fires have been influenced by record hot, dry conditions. The Black Saturday fires in Victoria were preceded by a decade-long drought with a string of record hot years, coupled with a severe heatwave in the preceding week. The previous record for the Forest Fire Danger Index was broken by such an extent that it was revised and

the category Catastrophic or Code Red was added. Since 2009 there have been a number of subsequent declarations of Catastrophic conditions around southern Australia in step with the hotter and drier climate. Communities, emergency services, health services and other authorities will need to prepare for the increasing severity and frequency of extreme fire conditions. As fire risk increases, disaster risk reduction and adaptation policies will play a critical role in reducing risks to people and human assets. Increased resources for

emergency services and fire management agencies will be required. One estimate of the future economic costs of bushfires indicates that with no adaptive change, increased damage to the agricultural industry in Victoria by 2050 could add $1.4 billion to existing costs. By 2030, it has been estimated that the number of professional firefighters will need to approximately double (compared to 2010) to keep pace with increased population, asset value, and fire danger weather.

Delays as tracks heat up EXPECT delays for train trips this week as heat timetables come into effect across the entire V/Line network. With temperatures expected to rise to 36 degrees and more over the next few days, journey times are expected to increase with trains slowing down as a safety precaution. The timetables will be in effect until at least until Friday (17 January) and will apply to Traralgon, Bairnsdale, Seymour, Shepparton, Albury, Swan Hill, Echuca, Ararat, Maryborough, Geelong and Warrnambool trains. Ballarat and Bendigo line trains are being replaced with coaches as the Regional Rail Link works continue. V/Line Chief Executive Theo Taifalos said heat-related changes generally applied to trains departing between noon and 8pm. “We know it’s going to be a busy week for travel with Melbourne hosting Big Bash Cricket, A-League Soccer and the Australian Open tennis championships,” Mr Taifalos said. “Extra coaches, carriages and

trains have been added to services where possible. However our message to customers is to plan ahead and allow additional travel time. If you can catch an earlier train or coach, please do that so that you get to Melbourne in plenty of time for your event.” “Heat timetables reflect increased journey times for trains that are typically restricted to a maximum speed of 90km/h. This is for safety reasons because the heat can cause steel tracks to expand and even buckle.” Mr Taifalos advised commuters to bring bottled water (trains have drinking water onboard) and to delay travel if feeling unwell. V/Line is supporting trains with coaches throughout the heat timetable to ensure customers can get to where they need to go if there are issues with air-conditioning on some older train sets.

Pollies climb mountains THE annual Tumbatrek through the Snowy Mountains will welcome NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell on Saturday 1 February. “I am very pleased the Premier is going to come back to Tumbarumba to participate in Tumbatrek,” Member for Albury Greg Aplin said. “There was a very warm reception for the Premier last year and I am sure this visit will again showcase the best of the Tumbarumba Shire and the Snowy Mountains’ tourist at-

tractions,” Mr Aplin said. Now in its fourth year since being resurrected by Michael McCormack, Tumbatrek is an annual bushwalk along the Hume and Hovell Track in the Snowy Mountains. The trek was first started by former Deputy Prime Minister and Nationals’ Leader, Tim Fischer, in 1985. This year’s walk will also feature a Federal Cabinet Minister, with Indigenous Affairs Minister, Senator Nigel Scullion, set to participate again. “In addition to the Premier, my Nationals’ colleague Nigel Scullion will also attend and take in the spectacular scenery along the Hume and Hovell Track,” Mr McCormack said. “I always look forward to this time of the year. Tumbatrek is a great event which draws national attention to the beauty of the Snowy Mountains and attracts greater tourism and interest in the area.”

Murray Gardens anniversary THE 12th of January 2014 marks an anniversary of a different sort for Val and Digger Plummer. It will be 12 years since they made a decision to move to the Murray Gardens and start the next phase of what has been an interesting life in Albury. Mr and Mrs Plummer have had a long association with Albury Wodonga, with Digger’s family originally settling here in 1857. Digger would be a familiar face to many locals, having run the “ Fruit Barrow” which was located outside Albury Court House in the late 1950s selling fruit and vegetables. Taxi driving, building and operating the Cottage Motel, a busy life ensued for both Digger and Val before they decided to retire. Having lived in East Albury, Val and Digger say that making the decision to move to Murray Gardens was an easy choice. “We couldn’t be happier, it has been the best thing we have done in our lives we have friends all around, you can do as much or as little as you want to,” Val said. “We go to the community centre where we have a nice bar and good meals, and there is always someone around if you get

It’s cheaper here than living in your own home, all our maintenance is done. “I recommend it to a lot of people and they say I’m too young, but that’s where they make their mistake, when they get here they all say ’we wish we’d done it sooner’. “Our family is happy that we are here, they don’t have to worry about us.” Murray Gardens will be open on Saturday 18 January and Wednesday 22 January from 11am. The community centre and some beautifully refurbished units will be open for inspection.

Cafe Amore Local invests in cafe culture FIRST-TIME franchisee Scott Kidd is taking a leap of faith for the love of lattes and bringing the first outlet of The Coffee Club to Albury. A loyal local, Scott traded in his long-standing career at NSW Maritime when things within the company changed and he was required to move to Sydney. “Living in the big city didn’t appeal,” he said. “I love the strong sense of community here in Albury, and I wanted to stay where my roots are. “I decided it was time to do something different. I wanted to somehow give back to the town that has given me so much, so I didn’t want to open any regular cafe. “I spoke to a lot of people in the area for advice, and everyone kept mentioning The Coffee Club. It has such a strong following, yet we didn’t have one here in Albury. “I wanted a store which was part of a franchise network with a strong business model and The Coffee Club was the perfect option.” Scott leveraged business management experience and his connections within the community to recruit a strong staff for The Coffee Club Albury. “My background is people, and

ceive enough support. “As soon as we’re settled in, we’ll reach out to local charities and sporting groups to help however we can - whether by fund-raising, sponsoring, or hosting events,” Scott said. “It’s a real pleasure to bring The Coffee Club to Albury, and I’m excited for what’s ahead.” According to John Lazarou, The Coffee Club Director, the group is very excited to join the Albury community and is looking forward to welcoming coffee enthusiasts from the local area to enjoy what Australia’s largest locally-owned café group has to offer. “The Coffee Club brand is about ‘inclusiveness’ - everyone is welcome to enjoy a relaxed experience in The Coffee Club,” Mr Lazarou said. “I know Scott and his team will be delivering the very best experience to everyone who visits.” Since opening its doors in Brisbane in 1989, The Coffee Club has become Australia’s largest homegrown café group with more than 350 stores across seven countries. To stay up-to-date with The Coffee Club Albury, head to the store’s Facebook page at www. facebook.com/pages/The-CoffeeClub-Albury/218185655013215.

I know this town inside and out. We’ve gone out to get the best of the best, and I’m very happy with our team,” Scott said. “We’re excited to provide the people of Albury with a venue where they can meet, relax and feel welcome. We’ve only been open a month, and it’s already become a popular destination for good food and excellent coffee.” Conveniently located in the heart of town - opposite QE2 Square, at Shop 1, 519-525 Dean Street - The Coffee Club Albury is open from 7am-6pm each day and until 9pm on Thursdays. “We offer a modern metro feel cafe with a great outlook,” Scott said. “It’s great to bring something to the heart of our beautiful city and we think Thursdays will be a hit with late night shoppers. “Parents can drop the kids off at training and get a bit of ‘me time’ as well. “We offer guests a range of mouth-watering meals from The Coffee Club’s recently launched new menu. We also provide freewifi and there are kids’ packs available to keep the little ones happy.” Scott plans to give back to the community by getting involved with local initiatives that don’t re-

Hume’s Junior Saver Club Save and Win activity book can also be used throughout the school year by students, parents and teachers to encourage good saving behaviour, and

Why fit is important EVERY child’s foot is different, and continues to develop until they’re 18. Due to continual growth and development, it’s essential to get children’s feet measured properly every time they need new shoes. Every school day is filled with a range of different physical activities. The right fit helps performance and reduces the risk of injury and problems. The Athlete’s Foot stock a range of Ascent and Clarks school shoes to ensure there are options for everyone. With The Athlete’s Foot highly trained fit

technicians, getting the right fit is easy through width options and half sizes. The Athlete’s Foot also offers customers a chance to join Clubfit - a way for the whole family to enjoy great benefits including a 30-day “wearanty,” plus the ability to earn points on every purchase to receive free gift vouchers and a free waterproofing service.

Foot & Leg Facts with Dr Marni Gray, Sports Podiatrist

Regular walking is important

Make sure your child is ready for a new school year - have their eyes checked.

All eyes on the classroom HEALTHY vision is important for your child’s educational, physical and social development and to help them reach their full learning potential. Did you know that one in four children has an undetected eye problem? With 80 per cent of all learning experienced through vision, it is no surprise that children with undetected vision problems often fail to progress well in school. Children’s vision can change dramatically from one year to the next, so a thorough eye examination before school

starts is recommended to ensure your child has healthy vision. Many children continue to experience undetected and unnecessary vision problems and often they assume that how they see is normal. Parents need to be able to recognise the signs of a vision problem and to ensure children are examined regularly to detect any problems early. Symptoms to watch out for: Complaints of blurred vision, headaches, or sore eyes; Delayed progress in reading ability; A turned eye, red or watery

DID you know that simple walking is one of the best forms of exercise for body and mind? Regular walking contributes to general health and assists with weight control. It improves circulation, respiratory function and metabolism; strengthens bones, muscles and the immune system and increases energy levels. Its benefits don’t stop there though - regular walking can help prevent falls, fractures and injuries through improved co-ordination, is one of the most important controlling factors of diabetes and is important in the prevention of illnesses like arthritis, heart disease, high blood pressure and osteoporosis. Walking is also great for your mental/emotional health too. It can help modify brain activity, assist with depression and cognitive function including concentration and memory, improve sleep and stress levels and promote all-around well-being. To top it off, it can be enjoyed by people of all ages and activity levels - almost anywhere, at any time and it’s free! So why isn’t everybody walking regularly for exercise? Much of the reason may be due to the fact that 80 per cent of Australians experience serious foot problems at some point in their lives, which often inhibits their ability, reduces their enthusiasm and commitment to walking for exercise. There is also a large percentage of people suffering other leg, knee and hip problems, which can often be caused by bad foot posture continually pulling their body out of alignment. “Foot and leg pain is very common and can have a huge effect on your everyday life,” Foot and Leg Pain Clinic’s Dr Marni Gray said. “The problem is many don’t get their issues attended to effectively, either because they think nothing can be done, they don’t know who can assist them or have seen practitioners who have provided them with incorrect advice and/or in-

Regular walking can eliminate numerous health problems and boost your overall well-being. appropriate treatment. We see so many people who’ve been told nothing can be done for them or that surgery or medication are their only options, when this is often not the case. “Thanks to the latest medical research and treatments we are able to treat most foot and leg pain and injuries relatively quickly and easily. We can even regenerate and repair soft tissue thanks to new, natural injection therapies.” Foot and Leg Pain Clinics have assisted thousands of people including some of the world’s best athletes. “Don’t let foot and leg pain stop you from being active,” Dr Gray said.

New recruits urged to cheer new year By KRYSTEN MANUEL IT’S time to whip out some pom-poms and practice those cheers - the Bandettes are once again holding annual auditions for cheer-leading squads. Hume Dance School owner Chantelle Hutchins encourages anyone who is interested to apply - boys as well as girls, and of all ages. “It’s a lot of fun, it’s great team work and it’s really good for them to learn some new skills and be a part of the whole atmosphere,” she said. “Our Bandettes squads will range from five years to any age. Last year we had cheerleaders up to the age of 25.” This year, after many requests, the Bandettes are adding a new squad, the Baby Bandettes. “This year we’re also adding our Baby Bandettes, our five to nine-year-old dancers,” Ms Hutchins said. “It should be really cute.” The Bandettes are Albury’s first professional Cheer-leading squad. Having formed in January 2011, the girls are taught and managed by Hume Dance School. Since their appearance at games, crowds have grown with some coming just to watch the

We started with 15 girls and now we have just over 40. “Crowd sizes have definitely increased and it brings something else to the game. It’s a family atmosphere and it’s a different kind of entertainment for everyone.”

Auditions are being held on Thursday 23 January at 4pm for Baby Bandettes aged five to nine years, 4.30pm for Junior Bandettes, 5.30pm for Senior Bandettes aged 14 years and over, and HDS STORM Competitive Cheerleading aged 10 years and over. Auditions are held at Hume dance school at 345 Wagga Road Lavington. Pre-register interest by emailing name, age and previous dance experience to chantelle@humedanceschool.com.au

IT’S a family affair at Border Dance Works (BDW), with the business celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. “I’d like to thank all the families that have come through the studio over the years, it’s been really special,” owner Kylie Romeike said. “Having families come through creates a beautiful atmosphere, and sometimes people I’ve taught come back with their own kids - that’s pretty amazing,” she said. “I’d also like to thank my mum, Kerry, who has has been an invaluable part of the business for the last 20 years and given tirelessly to myself and the dancers.” Now located in Hovell Street, Wodonga, BDW had humble beginnings at the Wodonga Sports and Leisure Centre. “It was just a part-time thing for me,” Ms Romeike said. “One night a week I was down at the leisure centre teaching, and then after a couple of years it was expanding and I made the decision that teaching was what I wanted to do,” she said. “So I opened up full time in South Street and we’ve been in this building on Hovell Street for about three and a half years.” Now 20 years in the game, BDW has had some notable success stories, with Ms Romeike always looking to add new styles and classes. “In the ballroom field we’ve had people compete at the Australian Dancesport Championships and do quite well,” she said. “We have kids dancing at eisteddfords and getting great results, and we do a lot of local competitions. “We’ll keep doing what we’re doing because it seems to be working well,” Ms Romeike said. “But I always try to offer new things like the fairy ballet classes, boys’ hip hop classes,

Cassie Bullock has been dancing with Border Dance Works for 10 years and now teaches fairy ballet. and we would really like to grow the ballroom area more too.” Currently BDW offers classes for all ages, covering styles of jazz, hip-hop, contemporary, ballroom, theatrical and modern expressive, plus the recently introduced fairy ballet for children 18 months to three years old. “We’re also introducing adults ballet classes for adults who have never done ballet before,” Ms Romeike said. “It’s extremely good for fit-

ness and if you’ve always wanted to do it but never had the opportunity, here’s your chance. You won’t be going into a class where there’s people who are really good, it’s just for beginners.” Dance enthusiasts are urged to stay tuned for the BDW 20th anniversary concert towards the end of the year. “I’d like to invite the families who have been involved over the years back, if they’re not here currently, for our 20th birthday concert,” Ms Romeike said.

Dress-up dreams prevail TWO local dancers have realised their dreams after winning a nation-wide modelling competition with Costume Glitz and finishing their shoots on Monday. The two best friends, Holly Rose Boyer and Alexandra Michael held a sausage sizzle and craft sale at the Springdale Heights IGA in December to raise funds for the trip and set off together last week. “I’m very excited,” 10-year-old Holly-Rose had said. “I’ve been friends with Lexi for about two years and when I found out she was coming I went crazy. The next time I saw her I gave her a hug and didn’t let go for ages.”

Alexandra met Holly-Rose through local dancing competitions. “It’s like a big sister-little sister relationship because Holly is 10 and Lexi is 13,” Alexandra’s mother Michelle Michael said. “Holly doesn’t have a big sister and Lexi doesn’t have a little sister, and they just click.” Of the 320 applicants from across Australia, only 16 winners were chosen, with 10 from the same dance school. Both girls have been dancing since they were two-year-olds and regularly compete in Eisteddfods. Holly-Rose has recently decided to expand her talents by hiring an agent.

“She recently got an agent and is trying to get into acting and commercial modelling,” Holly-Rose’s mother Toni Boyer said. “She wanted to enter the competition because it’s on the Gold Coast and she just loves their costumes. Costume Blitz costumes are just absolutely beautiful.” Alexandra saw the competition on Facebook. Both girls found the photo shoots to be a little more laborious than those for modelling regular clothing. “We’re not just modelling clothes, we’re modelling costumes, which is really cool - that’s what I want to do,” Holly-Rose said.

Simple beauty of days past BEFORE the plethora of grooming products we have today there were simpler rituals conducted by women (and men) in their quest for greater beauty. The Beechworth Burke Museum is celebrating the time and care women and men put into their everyday grooming routine with an exhibition appropriately named ‘Groomed’. The exhibition offers insight into the accessories, tools and textiles that were used to create that perfect look in the days before electricity. The Burke’s collections manager Linda Peacock has found numerous items in the permanent collection all related to grooming and preparing for the

day ahead. Some artefacts date back to the mid to late 1800s when dressing for the day or getting ready for bed at night was done by kerosene lamp. “We found within our collection a significant number of items relevant to grooming and thought what an opportunity to show how we managed in a time before electrical appliances,” she said. “Back then it was a real production to get ready for the day ahead as it was not appropriate to be seen dishevelled in public.” Also on display at the Burke Museum during the summer months is a lot of

Box office

‘fur and feather’ dress wear that has been stored away for conservation. “Many of the items on display are seeing the light of day for the first time in years,” Ms Peacock said. “Including an 1890 Ostrich feather fan that was used in the Theatre Royale Melbourne production Lady of Windemere’s Fan.” The exhibitions are on display during the January school holidays at the Beechworth Burke Museum.

Thief of hearts - and a few books By KRYSTEN MANUEL MOVIE: The Book Thief STARRING: Sophie Nelisse, Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, Ben Schnetzer and Nico Liersch DIRECTOR: Brian Percival DURATION: 125 minutes IT’S refreshing to finally see a film enter the cinemas depicting the struggle of average German people during WW2. With so many films taking the other side of the fence, the confusion, fear and vulnerabilities of those dragged along for the vicious Nazi ride are often not brought to the surface.

The plot begins with Liesel (Nelisse), a young girl sent to a foster family in Germany in the hope she might evade persecution stemming from communist family ties. Along the way her brother dies and Liesel steals a book from the burial The Gravediggers Handbook. While seemingly morbid, the book sparks a bright passion inside Liesel which is fuelled by her adoptive father Hans (Rush), who teaches her to read. Adding more fuel to the fire is a secret guest who lives quietly under the stairs, Max (Schnetzer). The stowaway Jew teaches Liesel to express herself with words, constantly asking

for a description of the day outside. Battling her own secret history, regular air bombings, bulldozing propaganda and most notably the German soldiers and their callous natures, Liesel uses “borrowed” books to sustain herself and those around her. The conclusion is composed of both devastating and beautiful elements, and will no doubt leave many viewers glassy-eyed. A must-see for anyone who appreciates the story less told, a raw slice of life, and characters with that rare breath of life.

WITH GEOFF HABERECHT OF TRU HIFI

Media in a spin IT WAS interesting over the Christmas selling period to read and watch the spin doctors in all media formats. The articles covered everything from the camera is officially dead, who wants CDS, just how good is 4K television to the hype over tablets. There is no doubt digital technology has advanced in quantum leaps and bounds bringing to the main markets items never considered by the average wage earner. The concern is with the proliferation of social media the company with the best story and public relations company becomes the market leader. The result has become photography with more participation than ever with happy snaps of every event in your lives. The art of photography is being lost, the art of setting up for a shot, lack of interchangeable lenses and the lack of depth of field due to the tiny lens goes largely unreported. Music has similar parallels - once we bought an album, read from cover to cover the recording, followed the lyrics and created our own interpretation of the album. Music fulfilled the senses when listening to a dedicated CD player with quality digital to analogue processing warmth and depth and a sound stage was still possible even if the compression was two thirds of the master recording or a record, some of today’s downloads may be compressed by a much as 95 per cent and most people could not afford the digital to analogue processors to return the warmth and depth.

Tru Hi-fi, leading the way in technology. The spin doctors on 4K or ultra high definition television will have you believe that the next step is here. The secret to any television is how good the television processes the image - the easiest job the TV has is with very high resolution images, the lower the resolution the harder the television has to work. The story rarely told is how the television performs on the normal highly compressed digital television signals.

It quite often needs the truth to miss a generation of customers for the mass population to appreciate some of the so-called “old technology” that may not have the shiny knobs and has only has one switch that now needs four menus and a six-year-old besides. The choice becomes yours with the convenience and excitement of technology over the tried and true products. In either camp, 2014 has in store a great year of choice to look forward to.

Resolutions close to home

Enzo Raimondo

NEW Year is a time for those resolutions about losing weight and getting fit but it can also be a time for major life decisions such as selling your home to upgrade or downsize, to take job in another town or to lead a different lifestyle. If you are planning to sell in 2014, or even just thinking about it, the summer months when the weather is fine, the evenings long and there is more free time for those long-delayed chores offer the chance to start preparing. Agents report that vendors who make an effort to present their home well often achieve a quicker sale, sometimes for a higher price. With other homes in your area, even in the same street for sale, you want yours to make an immediate impression and linger in buyers’ minds after they view it. Begin with a thorough inspection of your home inside

CEO Real Estate Institute of Victoria

Choose wisely on agents IF YOU are planning to sell your home or an investment property this year, one of your first tasks should be to choose your real estate agent. Some sellers think this can be left until later - spruce up the house first, show it to the agent at its best. But your agent can advise on improvements needed - and not needed. He or she may tell you that major overhaul will not bring the higher price you envisaged. Or some fairly small improvements will help attract buyers. The REIV represents more than 2000 agencies statewide and our research has shown market knowledge is crucial when choosing an agent. The most important factor is the local reputation of the agent. While some people believe that the advent of the internet and popularity of online advertising means it doesn’t matter where your agent is based, research we commissioned shows home sellers prefer estate agents that are well regarded in the local area.

As to who to choose, speaking with family, friends and neighbours will fill you in on the experience they have had with agents. It’s important to seek advice from people you trust. A survey of REIV members found their most important referral source was word of mouth and it can be just as valuable as an agency’s advertising and their website. Compare the professionalism of agents spoken to and the strategies behind their marketing and advertising campaigns. Your home is your biggest asset and selling it can be an emotional time, so don’t automatically choose the agent with the lowest fees or one who gives you the highest estimated selling price for your property. Choose the one you believe provides the best possible price for their services. Your agent should also be able to justify their estimate of the selling price by giving you comparable sales in the local area and market trends.

each will take and whether you need professional help. Remember gutters, windows and sills, screen doors and awnings, gravel for unsealed driveways, resealing the deck, bleaching stained concrete, killing driveway weeds and pruning. Seek a professional appraisal, or several, of your home from local real estate agents and ask their advice about preparing it for sale. For example, if the exterior paint is tatty would the cost of repainting the entire house bring a higher purchase price? Don’t neglect repairs which may seem minor sticking doors and windows, loose doorknobs, chipped paintwork and hard-to-open gates, for example. Buyers notice these things and an immaculate home suggests an owner who cares and fewer future problems for the buyer.

and out. First impressions count so check the view of the yard, fences, driveway, windows, doors, roof and walls from the street. List jobs to be done, including garden improvements and cleaning out that messy shed. Work out how long

Looking for a new family pet or best friend to love? Albury Wodonga Animal Rescue is here to help, with a variety of puppies and dogs waiting to be re-homed with a loving new owner.

The fee includes a veterinary health check, microchipping, desexing, C5 vaccination, flea treatment and intestinal worming. For cats and kittens the fee is $200 which includes veterinary health check, microchipping, desexing, F4 vaccination, flea treatment and intestinal worming.

THE oldest rowing regatta in Australia welcomed more than 750 competitors on the weekend, making for an electric atmosphere and tough competition. The 148th Lake Moodemere Regatta featured competitors both locally and from Melbourne, Geelong, Ballarat, Wentworth and Adelaide. “The regatta has come a long way from the original first races between the paddle steamer boatmen berthed at the Port of Wahgunyah,” Murray Rowing Association president Paul Somerville said. “It is just such a prestigious race on the rowing calendar that we attract rowers from all over Victoria and NSW for the weekend. Mr Somerville said results were very good, with 380 races over the two days spanning from under 17s, through to club racing and veterans, with females dominating the field. “The youngest competitor was 11 and the oldest competitor was Neville Howell who was 84. Neville rode in the ’56 Olympic crew,” he said.

“About 60 per cent of participants were female. Over the last 10 years there’s been more females rowing than males, so it was expected but it’s an unusual fact that most people outside the sport wouldn’t be aware of.” A main feature of the twoday regatta was the Victorian Spring Championships held on the Sunday. The Murray Rowing Association’s regatta is one of the three venues used in the series with rowers gaining points towards winning the Victorian Sprint Premiership. “On Sunday, due to the growing popularity of the regatta over the last 10 years, Rowing Victoria has given us the Sprint Championships to conduct,” Mr Somerville said. “The male single scull was won by Cain Saul. Cain is from Essendon Rowing Club and he’s an outstanding rowing prospect. “Tim and Will Day won the A grade pair. They have been long-time supporters of the regatta and do well every time they come up here.” The Days also took out the double skull.

“Essendon featuring Cain Saul won quad skull,” Mr Somerville said. “That was a great race with about half a length between first, then there was a crew from Barwon and a local crew from Corowa coming in fourth. “Linda Skidmore and Wilma Ingersma won the pair and also featured in the female four from Yarra Rowing Club.” “Barwon Rowing Club took out the female A grade eights - an annual highlight of the regatta. “Barwon Rowing Club also won the Redgum Shield Award which is an annual award for the most successful club. They had a strong contingent of over 100 rowers over here.” Corowa Rowing Club won the local competition, the Murray Rowing Association Shield. “The best junior was one of the local girls, Sarah Williams from Corowa,” Somersville said. “She won about six or seven races over the course of the weekend and will be going on to the nationals in the under 17 races at the nationals in Sydney in about six weeks’ time.”

Local Sport Dozens give it a tri By KRYSTEN MANUEL

Heidi Poole was the first female to cross the line in 41.20 min.

SUNDAY brought perfect conditions for new records and personal bests at Albury Wodonga Triathlon Club’s mini-tri. Allan’s Flat swarmed with people from 8am, with 61 competitors eager to hit the 300m swim, 13km ride and 3km run. And it was the over 50s who caused the biggest splash, dominating the course by setting new records and personal best times. Barry Bodsworth was the first individual home in a new course record for the 50-plus men of 37.14 minutes. He was followed by Josh Roy in 38.17 and Scott Melgaard in 38.29. Young guns Hugh McMahon and Ryan Allen combined to produce the best results of the day, finishing the course in a blistering 34.28. While not placing in the top three women, Paddianne Archdale still managed to set a new course record for the 50 plus women, finishing the course in 46.06. Heidi Poole was first female home in 41.20, followed by Emma Thompson in 44.04 and Stacey Loccisano in 44.05. Tom Freire was first male junior across the line and Torah Harley-Wilson was first junior female.

Get ready for mountain run MT BULLER will host its biggest running event ever on 1-2 February, the La Sportiva Mountain Running Festival. This two-day event is designed for all types of participants from ultra-marathon runners and mountain runners to families and road runners, and will take place on the picturesque trails throughout Mt Buller and Mt Stirling Alpine Resorts. The festival will see the return of the Victorian Mountain Running Championships, for the first time being held in conjunction with the Mt Buller Sky Run, which consists of three courses of 22km, 36km and 45km, taking in Mirimbah, Mt Buller, Mt Stirling and Craig’s Hut. The inaugural and gruelling

Mt Buller Vertical K will also be included in the program, where participants ascend from 680m at Mirimbah Park to 1805m at the Mt Buller summit, one vertical kilometre on a course of less than 9km. But for those just wanting a fun day out in one of Victoria’s most stunning alpine villages there is the 5km Family Fun Run. Mt Buller Mt Stirling Resort Management director of marketing sales and business development Amber Gardner is excited the festival will be held at Mt Buller and at the prospect of holding similar events in the future. “We are thrilled to have the La Sportiva Mountain Running Festival at Mt Buller this summer, and to be able to offer an event

that appeals to all levels of runner,” she said. “Mt Buller is fast becoming the place to watch for mountain running, with challenging terrain, stunning views and a cool alpine climate creating the ideal destination for running.” Registrations for the event are open until 30 January. To register for the Fun Run visit https://regonline.activeglobal.com/Register/Checkin. aspx?EventID=1368016, and for the Sky Run visit https://regonline.activeglobal.com/Register/ Checkin.aspx?EventID=1270859.
