Best of friends By KATH GANNAWAY

“We were so proud of how she was developing and changing from a lovely, shy little girl and blossoming into a beautiful, confident young lady,” her mum said. They described the girl with the cheeky grin as full of life, who loved aerobics and cooking and was loving, affectionate, funny and mischievious. They said Gary was a great friend

and a great dad who had a very special bond with his children and a great sense of fun which made him good to be around. Hayley and Lachlan’s mum Fiona said they were still coming to terms with the terrible crash and losing both their dad and their friend. She said Gary was a wonderful, caring and loving dad who was very in-

volved with the Woori Yallock Junior Football Club where Lachlan plays. “He was a fun dad who loved his fishing, good times with his mates and was a mad Collingwood supporter,” she said. Of the friendship between Hayley and Chloe, Fiona said it was very special. “We all loved having Chloe around.

ELEVEN-YEAR-OLD Chloe Blackney and 50-year-old Gary Theobald shared so much that was dear to them. Friendship and family were the things that brought them together and it was friendship and family that they were celebrating when they were tragically killed in an horrific car crash at Kinglake on Saturday, 15 February. “We lost our daughter and our best friend in one day,” Chloe’s dad Simon said last week as he and wife Kylie spoke of the family friendship that grew from a kindergarten play date in 2007. The Theobalds were the first family they met when they moved from Yarra Glen to Launching Place. “We know that Gary is looking out for Chloe, as we are looking out for Hayley and Lachlan,” Kylie said. Gary was taking his daughter Hayley and son Lachlan to Funfields in Whittlesea for Hayley’s 12th birthday. Naturally, Chloe as her inseparable ‘bestie’, was with her. Gary, and Chloe who was sitting behind him, died when a truck crossed into their path on the HealesvilleKinglake Road at around 9am. Hayley and Lachlan on the passenger side were uninjured. The loss of two beautiful people has devastated their close-knit families and the Launching Place Primary School (LPPS) community where Chloe and Hayley shared the excitement of moving into their final year, as Grade 6 students. “She was looking forward to so much this year; talking about graduation and her dress, and looking forward to her birthday in July,” said Kylie, who added she had just moved into her own room, another rite of passage for the pre-teen.

We used to sing and muck around, everything made her giggle. She was a beautiful girl, always laughing. They had a great friendship,” she said. “Hayley was wearing her ‘BFF’ Best Friends Forever T-shirt on the day,” she added. Both families have spoken of the support they have received from family, friends and the Launching Place school community. “The people we have had around us all in the past few days, you would not get in a big city. Without that support it would be a lot harder to get through,” Kylie said. “We appreciate that so much.” Launching Place Primary School principal Narelle Messerle paid tribute to Chloe, describing her as a gorgeous, outgoing student who was actively involved in everything and a much-loved member of the school’s sensational aerobics team. She said the loss of two people from their school community had been deeply felt by the students, parents and staff. Counselling has been put in place and Ms Messerle said the school had had offers of support through Lilydale Police and Yarra Ranges Council. “The community is pulling together,” she said. A service will be held for Chloe at the Heritage Pioneer Chapel in Woori Yallock at 11am on Wednesday, 26 February. The funeral service for Gary is yet to be finalised. Detective Senior Constable Mick Hardiman of the Victoria Police Major Collisions Squad said investigations were continuing into the crash, with the driver assisting in their inquiries.

Connecting people and communities MVM

Seat is set to reflect on fire By JESSE GRAHAM HEALESVILLE’S Bushfire Memorial Seat was officially unveiled last week with community members gathering to read and reflect on the tragedy that struck five years ago. CFA and SES members joined a large group of residents at the Queens Park unveiling on Monday 17 February where artist Ali Griffin spoke about the seat she created. The bushfire memorial seat, placed in the park late last year, pays tribute to the 2009 bushfires and is titled ‘Surrounded’ to reflect Healesville’s situation of being surrounded by flames in the weeks following Black Saturday. The seat is inscribed with memories gathered from members of the community who were affected by

the bushfires. Ms Griffin said she asked residents to donate a memory to be cut into the metallic memorial bench with the option of finishing one of two sentences “I remember ... ” or “I never want to forget ... ”. She said the seat, which features recollections from locals of the Black Saturday bushfires, was a daunting project to complete. “I was struck by the responsibility I had been handed - I had been asked to make a public sculpture that reflected on a public tragedy,” Ms Griffin said. “As if that wasn’t enough, I felt it also had to represent the community and also be embraced by them.” Yarra Ranges Mayor Fiona McAllister also spoke at the event and said the seat tells the story of the

Chemical detox drop-off

residents and of the town. “This beautiful seat captures our stories - each of them unique and each equally important,” she said. “They capture the fear, they capture the sadness, the friendship, the strength and the hope. “I’m sure that, as people visit this spot into the future, they’ll feel as touched as I am.” The seat was funded by the Victorian Bushfires Appeal Fund while the unveiling was organised by the Yarra Ranges Bushfire Recovery Network. Healesville’s bushfire memorial is one of many erected around the area with memorials located in Yarra Glen, Steels Creek, Chum Creek, Dixons Creek, Marysville, Kinglake and Toolangi.

Hotel gets in the loop for rubbish renewal By JESSE GRAHAM A HEALESVILLE business has rallied behind turning rubbish into a renewable resource with a new compost system, and the owner is urging the community to give it a go. The Healesville Hotel installed a closed loop organic composting unit earlier in the year and owner Michael Kennedy said the machine turns the hotel’s food scraps into compost for use in gardens.

Mr Kennedy said the scraps come from the hotel, Harvest Café and the attached butcher’s shop, and that the compost produced is then used in the farm that grows some of the produce for the business. The machine turns food scraps into compost by heat, agitation and airflow, which reduces the volume of the food waste by about 90 per cent in 24 hours. The food scraps turned into compost - roughly 600 kilo-

grams a week; 32 tonnes a year - would normally have gone into landfill, and Mr Kennedy said the system has halved the hotel’s rubbish output. He said the importance of the system lies in the benefits to the environment by reducing landfill and the frequency of rubbish pickups. “It’s important for us to know we are adopting good environmental behaviour and the end result of the compost is a fantastic resource for us to be

able to put back into Australian soil,” he said. Mr Kennedy said the system was expensive and was run on a four-year lease agreement, but he said the benefits would be there, if the community - or other local businesses - were to get on board and fund one. “Yes, you do have to be prepared to work a bit harder, to separate your waste and manage it, but there’s benefits, if everyone gets behind it,” he said.

“You think about a waste truck coming and picking up your rubbish - a truck with diesel - think of what that’s doing for the environment. “If you can cut one trip a week, you’re turning that into totally usable organic fertiliser.” Mr Kennedy said that anyone in the community interested in the machine could contact him at the Healesville Hotel by calling 5962 4002 and that he would be happy to show them how it works.

YARRA Ranges residents who need to dispose of household chemicals will be able to register a Detox Your Home drop off out of the area next month. The Detox Your Home service will be available to residents willing to make the trip to Doncaster East on 29 March, with services in the area to be announced later in the year. The service is a mobile collection that accepts dangerous household chemicals, such as acids, alkalis, ammoniabased cleaners and fuels, and is organised by Sustainability Victoria. Other chemicals accepted at the drop off include rat poison, pool chemicals, transmission fluids, herbicides, weed killers, pesticides, cooking oil, with a full list available online. The location of the drop off service is available upon registering online at www.sustainability.vic.gov.au/detoxmobile, or by calling 1800 252 233. Detox Your Home will be coming to the Yarra Ranges, with a mobile drop off service to be set up in Lilydale later in the year.

Shops f lood – again By KATH GANNAWAY TWO Warburton businesses which have had to shut up shop after being flooded out twice in one week are calling for urgent action from Yarra Valley Water. A broken water pipe on Highfield Road sent water spurting metres into the air on Sunday 16 February and again on the following Thursday morning. The volume of water which ran for around three hours before being turned off on the Sunday created a waterfall sending a flood of water across the car park behind the main street shops and down the embankment through the Waterwheel ground-floor shop. The owners of Bud Parfums, Howard Jarvis and Kerrie Kioulafas, and Susan Cliff who owns Billy May’s, found themselves pulling on gumboots and mopping up alongside Upper Yarra SES volunteers once too often. Yarra Valley Water has apologised and says it will renew the water main but Mr Jarvis told the Mail it is too late for his perfume and cafĂŠ business with the shop possibly unable to be used for up to three or four weeks. Mr Jarvis said they would consider moving to another premises later in the year but in the meantime would run the perfume side of the business online. “The immediate concern for a lot of the shops in Warburton is to get the pipe replaced. “It could burst at any time and until Yarra Valley Water replace it, you have that potential of flooding at any time of the day or night hanging over your head,â€? he said. “I don’t think some of the Warburton businesses are aware of what sort of damage this can cause and the potential for it to happen again,â€? he said. Ms Kioulafas said the damage could have been less severe had it not taken so long to turn the water off on the Sunday. She was at work when water started pouring into the building and said she was soon wading through ankle deep water. As the SES volunteers worked to divert the water and save furniture and other stock from damage, Yarra Valley Water searched for the valve to turn of the waterworks.

Water spurts metres into the air from a broken water pipe on Highfield Road. 115368 Picture: LEON SCHREUDER On Thursday Mr Jarvis arrived to find the shop inundated and the pipe again spurting water and fuelling another river through the shop. The SES sent a team up again, sandbagging and diverting the water and helping with the clean-up. “We tried to sandbag the back door but the water was coming in too fast,� Ms Kioulafas said. “The SES were our saviours. They responded so quickly and were just fantastic.� Ms Kioulafas said Yarra Valley Water had spent two or three hours searching for the stopcock on Sunday but were able to cut the water off more quickly on Thursday. Yarra Valley Water spokeswoman Cheryl West said, however, that the leak was isolated within 40 minutes of an assessor arriving on the Sunday but care was needed in turning the water off to ensure no other problems erupted. “Unfortunately one of the valves

Green grants are secure

all our future needs in terms of community facilities by itself so we will be looking for state government support for aquatic and sporting facilities. Other priority areas critical to Yarra Ranges are changes to the Bushfire Management Overlay to give people control over their own safety and property with less red tape and resources for fire protection and safety. Every community also needs more state government funding for better library services. I strongly encourage you to get involved and speak out on these issues.

CLEMATIS will share in $4 million funding from the latest round of the Victorian Coalition Government’s Communities for Nature environmental grants program. Member for Gembrook Brad Battin said the Clematis Park Committee of management would receive $4500 to improve the natural environment. “It is great news to see so many local environmental groups and community organisations receiving grants to fund environmental projects close to home,” Mr Battin said. “The Communities for Nature grants program supports local community groups by providing grants to complete on-ground works to conserve and enhance their local natural environment.

Healesville’s Giant Trees Members of the Field Naturalists Club were to hold an excursion to Blacks’ Spur on Saturday last mainly with the object of inspecting the Mueller Tree, one of the giants of the ranges, but they did not arrive. The Mueller Tree (locally named Furmston’s Tree) stands near the Mt Monda Track. It is a mountain ash and a fine, unbroken specimen. Its estimated height is 287 feet and its girth a yard above the ground level is 62 feet. The tallest tree known in Australia is one of the Cumberland Valley giants. It is 301 feet 6 inches in height but of a smaller girth.

Friend of the Late Belgian King Mrs. A. F. Bon of the Hotel Windsor, Melbourne who is well known to Healesville residents by reason of her interest in the proposal to

Over 3 1/2 inches of rain since Saturday UP UNTIL Saturday morning it looked like being an all-time record for the lowest rainfall for the first two months of the year, but the drought broke and a sprinkle developed into a downpour by Sunday.

Round Up WARBURTON Advancement League forwarded a copy of a letter sent to the Country Roads Board

in regard to the deep cavity by a landslide in Mt Donna Buang Road, Warburton. They asked council to also make representations to expedite the works. The Warburton Tennis Club asked council to consider erecting four tennis courts on the caravan park reserve, Warburton. Cr. Schulz moved the club be asked for further information as to the type and cost of the courts required, and that the secretary obtain from the Tourist Development Authority the particulars of subsidies available. A big family re-union will take place at the Warburton Camping Park on Sunday, March 8th. It is almost 50 years since the late Thomas James Leslie went to his final rest at Warburton. His wife Anne, re-joined her husband thirty years later. In the intervening years the family circle has grown and at the present time there is something like 200 next of kin.

Properties in limbo By JESSE GRAHAM CHANGES to the controversial Bushfire Management Overlay (BMO) restrictions may not be seen in the first half of the year, rendering thousands of local properties worthless even as a review is underway. Planning Minister Matthew Guy told the Mail on Friday 21 February that a government review of the BMO is taking place, which is expected to be complete before midyear. “The review is currently being undertaken alongside discussions with community representatives and relevant government authorities, and will be completed in the first half of 2014,” he said. However, Yarra Ranges mayor

Fiona McAllister said she had been unable to state the local case on the overlay, which had left thousands of land owners unable to build. Cr McAllister said three meetings with the minister had been cancelled, with her most recent one, set for Wednesday 12 February, cancelled while she was enroute. “He got called in to see the Premier, so we can’t argue with that,” she said. “(But) I wasn’t very impressed there were three of us heading in to see him. “We’ve been waiting for that meeting for months.” Cr McAllister said she was hoping to talk to Mr Guy and argue that the BMO should be in alignment

with expert opinion, and should allow people to build where they currently can’t. “Our position remains unchanged,” she said. “We’re very keen to put our case forward and to find out what his plans are.” The BMO applies to land that may be significantly affected in the event of a bushfire - it requires new developments to have appropriate bushfire protection measures. However, as a result, the firm overlay has meant that many blocks of land cannot be built on, as developments cannot possibly meet the strict requirements. Mr Guy wrote to Seymour MP Cindy McLeish on 10 December

last year, saying that the BMO is “complex and needs to be simplified”, while maintaining that community safety was still paramount. At the time, Mr Guy said he hoped to have the relevant advice by the beginning of 2014, with changes to Victoria’s Planning Provisions to result from that. The overlay was developed with recommendations from the 2009 Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission and was introduced in November 2011. Mr Guy’s office was contacted about the meeting cancellations with Cr McAllister, but no response was given on the matter. Cr McAllister said she believed a new meeting was being organised.

Search on for missing buckets HAVE you seen these buckets? Healesville Lions Club is searching for one of the colossal steel buckets that were used to construct Maroondah Reservoir between 1920 and 1927. Healesville Lions Club President Paul Walker said the club was looking for one of the steel buckets, of which 84 were used to construct the Maroondah Reservoir, for a special 150th anniversary project for the town. “It’s at its early planning stages,” Mr Walker said. “The club came up with an idea to make some sort of commemorative project to do with the making of the Maroondah Reservoir - a significant part of Healesville.

“We’re trying to organise some sort of sculptural-type display, and somehow incorporate one of the big steel buckets.” Mr Walker said the buckets were roughly as big as cars, and were used to carry cement to the reservoir’s construction team from Healesville Railway Station, via an aerial ropeway. The ropeway meant that the steel buckets - 42 carrying cement, 42 empty - could travel above power-lines and houses in the town on their way to the reservoir’s construction site. The 84 buckets travelled around 3.6 kilometres on the ropeway, which was powered by a steam plant, at an av-

erage speed of three miles per hour - around 4.8 kilometres per hour. Mr Walker said that the Lions Club would like to hear from anyone who knows the whereabouts of any of the steel buckets, and that the club would have to look at an alternative concept if none surfaced. Those with information on the buckets can contact President Paul Walker on 5962 6319. The Lions Club’s project is part of the celebrations for Healesville’s 150th anniversary, which will take place over the year and culminate in November.

Opinion Pool is a drain I RESPOND to David Johnston’s letter (Step Up For Pool, Mail, 28 January) concerning the future of the Jack Hort Memorial Pool. In Healesville I suggest the greater concern is the future of the shire pool. I fully understand David’s nostalgic feeling toward the Jack Hort Pool. I well remember the debate concerning fundraising to finance the pool. There were a number of people including myself who thought at the time supporting a second pool would lead to exactly where it is today. I only hope the Yarra Ranges Shire Council will not repeat the same mistake. It is time to let the high school pool fade into history. I would object to financially supporting two lame ducks as a ratepayer and taxpayer. I hope that David Johnston and others with similar views will get behind a campaign to build an aquatic centre similar to the one in Yarra Junction which many other shires have or totally enclose the existing pool. Healesville and surrounds population is increasing, currently more than 10,000 excluding Yarra Glen and 15 per cent of that population are 50 and over, who I believe would make great use of an all-year, all-weather indoor pool. Ray Donkin, Healesville.

Pump up our pool IT IS encouraging that Healesville, Ryrie Ward local councillor and Yarra Ranges Mayor Fiona McAllister understands what is at stake if the current council-high school stand-off over the Jack Hort Memorial Pool continues much longer. Letters to this newspaper, and the current survey, indicate the range and number of people who daily depend on the pool for learning, recreation, rehabilitation and much more. This will all end if the pool closes - as it will if funding is not very soon forthcoming. Any reticence that council may feel about funding a facility not actually owned by it is unnecessary. While Yarra Ranges owns most of its properties, it also expends considerable amounts of money on others that it leases or manages, including buildings in its home base, Lilydale. In the recreation area, the Warburton Rail Trail and Lilydale sports ground (and several

Sign is a blow RE: Coles’ “Down, Down” inflatable sign. In Healesville? Really? Take it down to Bayswater where it belongs. Why do we have a planning scheme that refers to preserving the visual amenity of a rural township and then get this? Steve Barry, Healesville.

Deflated! LOST your mail in Healesville? There may be a reason why. This sign was seen taped to a green rubbish bin outside of Healesville’s Post Office on Nicholson Street last week, which sits just a couple of metres from a bright red, clearly-marked, post box. Stating the obvious (though, perhaps, not for some), the bin’s sign asks residents to post their mail in the other, marked box and affirms its identity as a garbage disposal unit. A laughing staff member at the Post Office said he wasn’t sure who put the sign up, but that people do sometimes mistake the two starkly contrasted bins and lose their letters. 115386 Picture: JESSE GRAHAM others as well) are examples of Crown land (and buildings thereon) not owned by council, but which are funded by it. As well as this, numerous other precedents exist whereby ratepayers’ money is spent on enterprises that do not necessarily bring a tangible financial return to council but nevertheless result in the continuing well-being of Yarra Ranges residents. These range from public buildings and spaces improvements and beautification (such as the Memorial Hall internal and external upgrade) through educational and arts programs (such as library services and festivals) and, indeed, to other recreational activities including walking trails and sports club assistance. A council-planned Healesville aquatic centre that may eventuate years from now will cost mil-

lions of dollars but that wouldn’t be the end of the spending. It would, from its opening, begin to incur considerable day-to-day running costs. Why not, in the interim, pay those costs to an existing, perfectly adequate facility to ensure that hundreds of local people can continue their health-giving exercise? David Johnston, Healesville.

THE Coles inflatable sign. Is this the sort of welcome we want visitors to a picturesque tourist town to have? Welcome to all that is different to Ringwood and the miles of car yards? Take it down. Stephen Rocke, Healesville.

Tourist distraction A SHORT time ago, a group of concerned residents were moved to complain about the plans to develop the old sawmill site. We hated the concept of spoiling the entrance to our beautiful town by giving visitors the wrong impression of Healesville. What would visitors and tourists think? This will still happen when the new precinct is built but to prepare us for the shame we will feel we have a precursor of shame by looking at the hideous monstrosity perched on the roof of the newly refurbished Shell service station, beautifully positioned to give tourists a good laugh as they enter our much loved town. Really, who wants to live in an outpost of a well-known retail outlet? We really are going “down, down, down”. Wendy Veitch, Healesville.

Women are nailing DIY By KATH GANNAWAY WOMEN are coming out of the woodwork to learn about tools and timber at Ben’s Shed in Yarra Junction. Eighteen women of all ages and from up and down the Warburton Highway drilled down the facts on how women’s classes at a men’s shed might work at an introductory morning tea earlier this month. The response was enthusiastic, exciting and productive with the project, funded by the Warburton and Yarra Junction Bendigo Community Bank, expected to start next term with a seven to eight week course run by Ben’s Shed ex-TAFE woodwork tutor Phil Ashley. Bank community development worker Suyin Chan said the session was a strong indica-

tion of the desire of the women to be able to do wood-related work themselves, rather than relying on others to do it for them. Because of the strong response, two sessions will run each Friday and once the sessions begin and the woman become members they will be able to use the shed outside of the Friday sessions. Kate Bamford attended the meeting and said she is keen to get started. The Warburton sole parent of two teenagers said learning to drill a hole straight would be a good start for her. She said there were lots of good outcomes from the meeting including the opportunity for women to take along their own tools to learn how to use them and access to the full range of equipment at the shed.

“It seemed also that a lot of women were there because they are the handyperson in their household and they just want to know how to use their tools properly. “I think the men will get as much out of this as we will because of the sharing of information and skills,” she added. Ben’s Shed president Rob Barber agreed. He said the shed opens five days a week and has 30 members and about the same number of women interested. “By opening up to different programs it makes the shed more viable. “We have had female members in the past and the members are very supportive of this latest move,” Mr Barber said.

VicForests says it will clean up its act Grants are a using a sample base chosen randomly from different risk-assessments. MyEnvironment member Steve Meacher said he was concerned about the 93 per cent compliance, which he said was unacceptable and showed no improvement on a previous audit. “It’s a concern - the figure hasn’t improved in several years and there haven’t been any prosecutions over the 7 per cent noncompliance,” he said. “You’re not allowed to drive over the speed limit 7 per cent of the time - you do it once and you get pinned. “Where are the prosecutions? 93 per cent is not good enough when it’s not improving.” A DEPI spokesperson confirmed that an audit in 2010-2011 also recorded a 93 per cent compliance rate by VicForests, but

said the two audits were difficult to compare. “It’s difficult to compare results from audits from one year to another as different aspects of timber harvesting may be reviewed (not necessarily like-forlike),” they said. A spokesperson for VicForests said that all issues of noncompliance, whether big or small, resulted in recommendations being handed down from DEPI, for future improvement of operations. Two of the most significant non-compliance issues were where a stream was tainted with sediment and gravel from roads used to access a coupe - though not in large quantities - and a coupe which was almost entirely harvested. “Disturbance from harvesting, regeneration burning and rough heaping meant that no long-lived

understorey elements were retained within the harvestable area as required by the code,” the audit read. VicForests General Manager of Stakeholder and Planning Nathan Trushell said the non-compliance in the harvesting coupe was an unusual occurrence, but was grounds to review processes. “We did meet the habitat requirements; however the retention of long-lived understorey elements was an issue due to the areas needing mechanical disruption after failed regeneration attempts,” he said. “We are currently reviewing our planning processes and will ensure biodiversity conservation measures are met in all areas we operate in.” The audit can be found on VicForests website at www.vicforests.com.au.

SPORTING groups are being encouraged to apply for infrastructure grants of up to $50,000, as the Yarra Ranges Council’s Capital Development Program opens for submissions. The council’s Capital Development Program provides grants for projects focusing on sporting infrastructure improvement and recreation facilities. Mayor Fiona McAllister said the council is particularly interested in projects to improve existing facilities and provide opportunities to a range of users in the community to participate in sport. “These grants provide opportunities for one-off projects that otherwise might struggle to be funded,” Cr McAllister said. The grants program opened officially on 17 February and submissions will close on 16 May - successful applicants will be chosen in June. Residents can find eligibility criteria for the grants online at www.yarraranges.vic.gov.au/grants. The council’s Community Grant program, which focuses on arts and heritage development, festivals, events and community development, will open for applications in June.

VICFORESTS has come under fire from a local environmental group for non-compliance in recent audits, but the timber industry said it is improving where it dropped the ball. On 11 February, VicForests announced that an audit carried out by the Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) found its coupes complied with 93 per cent of the audit criteria. The audit was carried out as part of DEPI’s Forest Audit Program (FAP), using a sample of 35 logging coupes across the state including the Central Highlands - and was published on 7 June 2013. The audit focused on the harvesting and closure of coupes in the 2012-2013 financial year,

A regional partnership with the TAC and the Victorian Government.

Mythbusters of motoring MYTHS about speed cameras are the focus of a new advertising campaign which targets young male drivers and those who continuously flaunt road rules. The Speed Camera Urban Myths campaign, launched on Wednesday 19 February, will use radio, digital, cinema and billboard advertising to address myths about speed cameras. Police and Emergency Services Minister Kim Wells launched the new campaign and said it would target men aged 18 to 25 who made up one of the eight Yarra Ranges road deaths in 2013. The same demographic accounted for 27 out of the 242 state-wide road-toll fatalities last year. “This advertisement campaign will target young drivers, especially at-risk 18-25 year old males, who are over represented in the number of recorded deaths and serious injuries on Victorian roads,” Mr Wells said. Mr Wells said the campaign would use independent research to present facts about speed cameras and their positive effect on the road toll. “A common urban myth is that speed cameras exist solely to raise revenue for government,” he said.

“The Monash University Accident Research Centre found that death and serious injury is reduced by, on average, 47 per cent at intersections where a speed camera is present. “There is no doubt that speed cameras have contributed to slashing the road toll from more than 1000 in the 1970s to 242 people last year, but one road death is one too many.” Mr Wells said that all revenue from speed camera fines goes directly back into road safety initiatives, through the Better Roads Trust. He said that as long as people continued to speed and break the law, fines and infringements from speed cameras would continue to be issued. “Anyone foolish enough to break the law and speed will receive a fine,” he said. Speed cameras are a main component of the Victorian Government’s Road Safety Strategy, which aims to reduce road deaths and serious injuries by 30 per cent by 2022. The Speed Camera Urban Myths campaign is a result of the Cameras Save Lives campaign. For more information, visit www.camerassavelives.vic.gov.au

Speed cameras have helped to slash the road toll, and revenueraising claims are a “myth”.

Numberplate scanners scoop up drivers By KATH GANNAWAY

Yarra Ranges Highway Patrol members Leading Senior Constables Michael Pryor and Paul Doevellar check the stats at Launching Picture: KATH GANNAWAY Place. 115406

SPOT them and pull them is a tactic that works for Yarra Ranges Highway Patrol. YRHP officers were on the Warburton Highway at Launching Place on Thursday 20 February using automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology to detect unregistered cars and unlicensed, disqualified and suspended drivers. They were also checking alcohol interlocks with the ANPR able to flag whether a particular car should have an interlock device in it. Out of 2496 number plates scanned between 8.15am and 12.45pm there were 38 detections including 12 unregistered cars and 15 unlicensed drivers as well as checks on nine interlock vehicles. Among those pulled over were an

18-year-old male P-plater from Yarra Junction driving an unregistered car and a 39-year-old woman driving a car with false number plates. Another woman from Warburton was found to be unlicensed after being disqualified for drunk driving and never reapplying to the court to get her licence back. Police have embraced ANPR technology as an extremely effective way of targeting motorists on the state’s roads who are doing the wrong thing and placing others at risk. One of the benefits of the technology is its mobility which allows police to set up and pack up quickly and move to different locations. Research shows that unauthorised drivers are more likely to be involved in

road trauma and ANPR technology is an effective pro-active mechanism for identifying road users and getting them off Yarra Valley roads. What is ANPR? Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology is a system which includes a camera and software and is set up on the side of the road to scan car number plates at a rapid rate. It runs registration details through a database and identifies unauthorised drivers, such as those with a suspended or cancelled licence, or driving unregistered and stolen vehicles. The system alerts the operator to any unauthorised drivers which prompts a police interception.

Hay bales to help “We wanted to help other people in need.” Ms Szymiczek said that, although many people were helping to donate hay, more help would be needed. She called on other residents to pitch in with neighbours if possible and to organise a shipment of hay for farmers in need. “They still need hay donations, and if people can get together with their neighbours and donate, that would be great,” she said. The truck that was shipped on Wednesday carried about 14 large hay bales and 120 squares, and was loaded by Fiona McCall and Fillip Pritchett, with help from Healesville’s Brendan Kay. Mr Pritchett donated his truck and his time to help others, also taking the first shipment of 48 large bales to Lancefield, which was organised by Eyton on Yarra manager Andrew Egginton. The hay donors were Eyton on Yarra, Simon and Glenda Crofts, Robb Bennett and sons, Dave Duncan, Terry from Terry’s Meats, Richard and Jenny Parker, Ben Schmolling, Olga Szymiczek, Lynda Hultgren, Steve Hollis, Jenny Reddin and Bert Rijk from The Big Bouquet. The government is currently funding the Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) to collect do-

nated fodder and distribute it to where it is needed. VFF president Peter Tuohey has urged anyone with spare fodder to donate to call 1300 882 833. “Our priority is getting local donations of fodder on the ground as quickly as possible,” he said. “We’re also seeking agistment and will be establishing a register on the VFF website identifying who, where and what is available.” Mr Walsh said the areas of Mickleham, Kilmore, Lancefield, Gisborne, Romsey, Wunghnu, Bunbartha, Yarram, Buchan, Orbost, Bonang, Lindenow, Gifford and Morwell were all in need of assistance, with the extent of the fire’s damage still not realised. “The total loss and damage caused by the fires is not yet clear,” he said. “But we do know that a number of landholders have lost a large amount of pasture and it is essential they receive emergency supplies.” All across the Yarra Ranges, people have been pitching in to help farmers in need. For more stories of how the Yarra Valley has responded to the call for hay from bushfire devastated areas, see the Mail online at mail.starcommunity. com.au and next week’s Mail.

Chef sharpens up By KATH GANNAWAY APPRENTICE chef Natacha De Barba is sharpening her skills this week as a finalist in the Fonterra Proud to be a Chef competition. Natacha, 25, from Lilydale is a third year apprentice at TarraWarra Estate in Healesville. She decided to pursue a career doing something she loved two years ago when she quit her job as an office manager in Western Australia and headed for the Yarra Valley. “I’ve always loved cooking and the thing I love the most is just seeing how people look and feel when they eat something that is really good and something you have created. Natacha is one of 32 finalists from around Australia attending master classes by world-leading chefs and industry experts in Melbourne as part of the competition. She will be wined and dined at award-winning Melbourne

restaurants and in the running for $7,500 prize spend on an international placement, but said what she was most excited about was the opportunity to be inspired and learn from some of Australia’s culinary icons. “To be able to work and learn from others in the industry is a great opportunity,” she said. TarraWarra Estate head chef Robin Sutcliffe said the competition recognised the role of mentors in shaping the chefs of the future. “Like a parent getting their kid ready for the big, wide, world, when they have finished their apprenticeship you want them to be as fully-formed a chef as possible, so they have the skills required to go out and do bigger and better things,” he said. “This is a great opportunity. If you are selected as the apprentice from the group to go overseas, you get to choose the destination and that can be lifechanging in terms of a career,” he said.

GENEROUS Healesvillians have dug deep and donated hundreds of hay bales to farmers in need, following a fire disaster that struck the top end of the state. Minister for Agriculture Peter Walsh recently called out to anyone with spare hay - or land for agistment - to put up their hands and assist livestock farmers in fire-affected towns across the state. The call came after fires tore through the Shepparton and Gippsland areas leaving thousands of hectares of grassland charred and the local farmers reeling. A group of about 12 Yarra Ranges residents heard the call, dug into their fodder supplies and sent off two truckloads of hay rolls and squares to the bushfire relief effort. The hay bales were shipped out on Monday 17 and Wednesday 19 February and arrived in Lancefield, where they will be distributed to farmers in bushfire stricken areas. Healesville resident Olga Szymiczek helped to organise the second truckload and said the decision to help donate came naturally, as a Yarra Valley local. “We went through Black Saturday and received a lot of help from people,” she said.

Coranderrk commemorated By JESSE GRAHAM A WALK to commemorate Coranderrk will be held this weekend, and visitors are encouraged to follow in the footsteps taken 151 years ago by Aboriginal elders. The second annual Walk to Coranderrk will begin in Healesville’s Coronation Park at 10.30am on Saturday 1 March, and end five kilometres away at Coranderrk Station - 19 Barak Lane, Healesville. The Walk to Coranderrk event commemorates the trek made by Wurundjeri Elders William Barak, Simon Wonga and around 38 others in early 1863, when they searched for a home for their people. Travelling across the Great Divide, the group selected land at the junction of the Yarra River and Coranderrk Creek - now known as Badger Creek, and lobbied the government for the land. The government allocated 2300 acres at the site to the group, and Coranderrk Aboriginal Station be-

gan its 61-year life, set to become a thriving village and successful Aboriginal enterprise. The Walk to Coranderrk re-enactment, according to organisers, invites visitors to reflect on the local history and show commitment to the strengthening of unity between all Victorians - Indigenous and nonIndigenous alike. Participants are asked to bring a hat, appropriate footwear, sunscreen and a water bottle, to ensure safety on the five kilometre trek. Following the walk, refreshments will be provided and a bus will transport walkers back to Coronation Park around noon. The event is held in the lead up to the Coranderrk Festival, which will be held at Coranderrk Station on Saturday 15 March from noon until 8pm. For more information on the walk or the Coranderrk Festival, visit www.coranderrk.com or email coranderrkfestival@hotmail.com

Best masks for the ball By JESSE GRAHAM PUT on your best mask and get your gown (or suit) - a masquerade ball is coming, with money going towards a Healesville teenager’s awareness campaign. The Masquerade for Catie event will be held on Saturday 15 March at the York on Lilydale in Mount Evelyn, running from 8-10pm. The event invites members of the community to put on their best disguise and go all-out with their costumes for the ball, which will raise money for Healesville teenager Catie Barlow. Catie, who has campaigned to raise awareness of porphyria while undergoing treatment for the terminal illness, said that profits would go towards her trip across the Nullarbor - one of the items on her bucket list. She said the money would also go towards future events raising awareness of the disease, and raising money for

CROYDON ARTHOUSE Night Train to Lisbon M

By KATH GANNAWAY THE Yarra Valley will be well represented when riders from around Australia set off in September in the inaugural Scootarbor Challenge. Scootarbor (sub-titled Seniors Cross the Nullarbor) will see 30 predominantly over-65s ride 50cc motor scooters across the Nullarbor to raise funds for beyondblue, and to lift the profile of the baby boomer generation. Healesville neighbours Jock Purves and Bob Gannaway signed on and quickly recruited Perry Carter from Launching Place, Diane Roberts from Yarra Glen, Neil Jorgensen from East Warburton and Felicity Nolle from Chirnside Park. For Diane, 68, the ride will be a return to younger days when she rode motor scooters. She has kept her licence alive and said she was looking forward to the challenge of such a long ride, as well as the

challenge of fund-raising for beyondblue and raising awareness of mental health issues. Jock, 67, is a retired paramedic with 40 years’ experience behind him, a regular scooter rider and a veteran of several Great Victorian Bike Rides. Scootarbor appeals to his sense of adventure. “It is not only the physical challenge of getting across the Nullarbor on a 50cc, but the challenge mentally,” he said. He said raising funds for beyondblue was an important part of the adventure, and the challenge. The group’s first fund-raiser, a mega garage sale, is on Saturday 1 March, in Marna Street, Healesville. The group has garnered support from a number of households, some of whom will hold their own garage sales, and others who have donated goods to be sold at Scootarbor stalls.

Fun run all the way home By KATH GANNAWAY WITH a cast of around 700 runners, improvements to the running track and the introduction of the first half marathon event and electronic timing, the 11th Warburton Up and Running Fun Run was tipped to be the best ever. And, according to spokeswoman Sue Hoffman, it was. Sue said all the planning along with great support from the business community and the CFA and SES volunteers, topped by perfect running weather - cool and sunny - it all came together for a hugely successful and enjoyable day. “Two of our perennial problems, parking and timing, were solved with the Crockett Group giving us access to the resort area for parking and Tomato Timing coming on board with electronic timing. “They were brilliant, the results were up on their website within an hour of the end of the event,” she said. Sue said the event was a mix of locals and visitors, with one runner coming from Switzerland and lots of others coming from all around Melbourne and further afield. Runner Simon Holloway did his first half marathon at Warburton and in a ‘thank you’ to the organisers said he was looking forward to repeat-

ing the experience next year. “It is a major credit to the Warburton community to be able to put on such a well-organised, professional and efficient running event. There was nothing that could have been better planned or delivered on the day,” he said. Sue said the involvement of families and children was a focus of the event and that demographic was also building each year. “Our oldest competitor, Colin Steer, from Launching Place is 80 years old, and two other Steer family members also competed successfully, Asha in the 5km and Lania in the 10km. “We even had some quite small children in the longer distances this year. Our youngest competitor was seven in the 5km walk, but there were also a number of toddlers in prams who completed the walk,” she said. The youngest competitor in the 10km was Ashleigh Gasson, 9, from Emerald and the fastest team in the 10km event was Croydon Masters Athletics Club. Warburton Up and Running is held on the last Sunday of February each year. See more Up and Running photos on the Mail on-line at mail.starcommunity.com.au.

Love of sport bringing the different cultures together By JESSE GRAHAM EASTERN Health staff will face off against Aboriginal athletes in a special netball tournament and football match this weekend in Healesville. The second annual community sports day will be held on Sunday 2 March, at Healesville’s Don Road Sporting Complex, and aims to promote the importance of Indigenous health in the area. The action of the day will kick off at 10am, when a netball tournament will begin between Eastern Health staff and experienced Aboriginal players. A football match will follow

the tournament, beginning at 2pm. Eastern Health’s Senior Aboriginal Service Development officer Vera Webber said that Eastern Health would be using the day to raise awareness about health issues facing the Indigenous community, as part of the group’s work to close the health gap between Indigenous and nonIndigenous Australians. “One of the great things about the day is how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non-Indigenous Australians can use sport to celebrate the spirit of reconciliation,” she said. “We can all play a part in

breaking down cultural barriers and ensuring we have a better knowledge about Australia’s Indigenous people.” To accompany the sporting action, community health information will be available at the event, with details about services and programs for the area given out. Ms Webber said she encouraged anyone in the area with an interest in sport or community health to come down and support the event. For more information, contact Eastern Health on 1300 342 255.

Jo Voce, left, and Vera Webber are excited for the tournament being held by Eastern Health this Saturday. 115492 Picture: ROB CAREW

Seville bats take command of finals POSITIONS for finals are up for grabs in the Yarra Valley Cricket Association’s premier grade, DJ Strachan Shield, with up to six teams vying for three positions. Only reigning premiers Seville have sewn up their finals ticket with the rest clambering over themselves to feature beyond the home and away season. Despite clinching a finals berth last week, Seville certainly hasn’t taken its foot off the pedal with a commanding performance with the bat on day one of its clash at Mount Evelyn. After a bright start, Seville were pegged back by the home side with an intriguing battle ensuing between bat and ball. Adam Burns got things rolling for the visitors, but wickets to Kane Jones kept things in check. With Gareth Fraser eeking out wickets on consecutive balls on the stroke of lunch, the Blues were left at 4/103 with the game well in the balance. Rohan Prouse (67) was playing a dogged innings, and despite looking scratchy early, his innings blossomed after the tea break, and with the support of a flourishing innings from Andy Kay, the Blues took the game away from Mount Evelyn. With an 88 run stand with Prouse, followed by a 96 run partnership with Ryan Akers (41), Kay took toll on the tiring attack with a wide arrange of shots showcasing his experience and skill to score a much deserved century and virtually bat his side to an unbreakable position posting 318. If Mount Evelyn is to feature in finals action it will need to chase the large target. They certainly possess the firepower to keep the run rate at the asking rate but on recent performances the bigger question is can they bat the 75 overs against a formidable attack to ensure they give themselves a chance of chasing the target.

Healesville is hosting Woori Yallock in a key clash for both sides. Woori Yallock have remained in the hunt for finals action despite being in the bottom half of the ladder for the majority of the season. Facing a struggling Healesville outfit, which has found the going tough since the Christmas break, the Tigers batted first in an intriguing battle between bat and ball on day one of this contest. Brad Chandler (3/19) made early inroads into the visitors’ line-up and looked to be sending the Bloods up the right path but stout innings by Paul Broussard (41) and Ryan Smith (23) looked to have Woori Yallock on the path to a decent total with plenty of fire power in the shed. Tim Diggins (46) did his best to provide the innings with some grunt, however expert bowling from Dylan Moore (3/21) and Brian Scanlon (2/23) pegged things back for the home side to see the Tigers bowled out for 181 on the stroke of stumps. The game looks well set with the inform Tigers attack ready to pounce on any weakness shown by the stumbling Bloods. Healesville certainly has the line-up capable of chasing the total, however much rests on the shoulders of captain Geoff Stock and his top order crew to give this innings some momentum or they could find themselves short again. Yarra Junction continues its march towards finals action with a dogged display with the bat against a disciplined Hoddles Creek bowling outfit. Batting first on the lush Yarra Junction oval, the home side battled itself as much as the opposition as it struggled to build any partnerships of significance. Young quicks Nick Lawlor (4/58) and Dave Chesney (3/30) continually had the knack of picking up crucial wickets when the Eagles looked threatening.

Contributions from Daniel Sharp (44 n.o.), Chipper Robertson (34) and Marcus Hottes (27) ensured the home side finished the day with a decent total of 210. However the team will be ruing the missed opportunity to completely bat the Wombats out of the contest. Yarra Junction certainly possess the bowling stocks to snuff out a Hoddles Creek challenge with the bat, however the visitors have found some form with the willow in recent weeks. The final game of the round followed a familiar trend for Coldstream as it hosted Warburton-Millgrove in another key clash for finals billing. The Crocs batted first and looked well placed as inform opener Danny Adams looked to impose himself on another attack as his season continues to blossom. Adams built steadily from the outset and set a solid foundation for the remaining batsmen to build upon. With the unstoppable force looking at his third consecutive century, the Burras prized the key wicket of Adams for 68 and then set themselves on getting back in the contest. There were even contributions for the rest of the Crocs batsmen, but none of them could put the Crocs in a commanding position as spinner Tim McKail (4/37) turned the screws and evened the score for Warburton-Millgrove as they bowled the home side out for 181. Warburton-Millgrove still have an outside chance of featuring in finals action and will be confident of chasing the total with a disciplined performance with the bat. Coldstream holda the aces with an expert pace attack, but if they are slightly off, the Burras’ experience will cash in.
