Persimmons are pure pleasure ONE of many beautiful things about persimmons is that they ripen at the same time as the tree erupts into its glorious autumn display of reds, oranges and yellows. They are the quintessential autumn fruit. Another, is that they are becoming more available either from the farmgate, or the supermarket shelf, making right now a great time to discover the natural sweetness either as a fresh fruit or in sweet or savoury recipes. Persimmons Australia has lots of tantalising recipes including the Lime Poached Persimmons with White Chocolate Mousse and the Persimmon Thai Beef Salad, a great introduction to this beautiful, but little known, fruit to Yarra Valley kitchens. Lime Poached Persimmons with White Chocolate Mousse What you need: 4 Sweet persimmons, peeled and sliced 1 lime, zest and juice, 1 knob of ginger, peeled, 1 star anise 1 cup of sugar 1 cup of water 200g white chocolate 3 eggs 200ml cream 1 tbsp of sugar 1 tsp vanilla essence 1 pinch of salt What to do: Add sugar to water, add ginger, star anise, lime juice and zest to create syrup for poaching and bring to the boil. Add persimmons slices to syrup, bring back to boil, turn off the heat and set aside to cool. Once cold place into the refrigerator. Place a saucepan half-filled with water

onto medium heat and place a heat-resistant glass bowl on top of the saucepan. Add chocolate to the bowl and slowly melt. Separate the egg whites and yolks in separate bowls. Add sugar and vanilla essence to the egg yolks and whisk until pale in colour. In a separate bowl, whip the cream. Whisk the egg whites, when almost stiff add salt. Remove the chocolate bowl from the saucepan and gradually add the egg yolk mixture, making it fairly firm. Gradually fold in the cream and then gently fold in the egg white. Place mixture into the refrigerator and chill for at least two hours or until mousse is firm. Place persimmons onto a plate, top with a generous dollop of white chocolate mousse and garnish with lime zest. Serving size: Serves 4 Cooking time: Less than 30 minutes

Brush beef with a little oil and barbecue, pan fry or grill until cooked to your liking, 2-3 minutes each side will be medium. Set aside to rest for 5 minutes, slice thinly. In a large bowl gently toss all salad ingredients. To make the dressing, combine all ingredients in a screw-top jar and shake until the sugar has dissolved. Combine beef with salad, drizzle with dressing, serve immediately. Serves 2 For more recipes and information visit www.persimmonsaustralia.com.au

Persimmon Thai Beef Salad What you need: Salad: 250gms fillet steak, trimmed 1 persimmon, peeled and julienned 1 cup coriander leaves 1 cup mint leaves 1/2 cup thai basil leaves 2 shallots, finely sliced 1 long red chilli, seeded and shredded Dressing: 1 clove garlic, crushed 1 teaspoon caster sugar 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice 2 tablespoons fish sauce What to do:

Choosing the fruit Selection: Choose persimmons that are smooth, plump, glossy and wellrounded and with their calyx still attached. The fruit can range in colour from a pale orange to a deep red-orange, depending upon variety and stage of the season. Fruit with surface blemishes are fine to eat as flavour and eating quality is unaffected. Storing: After removing the leaves, prepare the persimmon by slicing the fruit or cutting it into quarters. Despite being firm to the touch, handle persimmons with care as the thin skin is delicate and bruises easily. Sweet persimmons that have gone soft are perfect for use in cooking but they must be handled gently. When ripe, persimmons should be stored on their own, out of the fridge.

It’s a feast for the eyes By KATH GANNAWAY RUSSELL Sebire’s family always had a persimmon tree on their property. They had a mulberry tree, walnut, camellia and lemon tree too. “All the old folks had these trees, but they never sold the persimmons then,” he said, weighing up a box of the brilliant burnt-orange fruit for Asian visitors from Melbourne who come up every year to pick and purchase the fruit from his Wandin property. Mr Sebire was the first in the valley to plant an orchard of the fruit which originated in China and has been grown in Southeast Asia for thousands of years. He was way ahead of his time, even on a national level. “I put them in 40 years ago when we first moved into the house, and that was on the first day of 1970,” he says. Persimmons Australia records the early ’80s as the time when the ‘exotic’ fruit was first grown on a commercial scale. His venture is not on a huge commercial scale, in fact he calls the block of fruit trees more of a ‘patch’ rather than an orchard. The idea to plant persimmons went back to his childhood when he says he used to pick them and sell them at the market. “The old folk used to eat them. A lot of people didn’t know them at all and a lot of people still don’t, or that they have to be dead right to eat them,” he said. “There are two types and the soft ones you have to eat when they are almost a jelly texture inside, while the other one is a harder texture.” Migrants have led the way in the growing demand for persimmons and they have always been happy to make their way to Wandin for an autumn treat.

Blinds

“Italian people have a liking for the soft variety and the hard variety is popular with Asian people,” Mr Sebire has observed over the years. Walking through the patch, Mr Sebire said it had not only been a good year for the fruit, but for the autumn leaves. “Some varieties colour up better than others. It depends on how the weather has been and it varies from year to year. It’s been a good year for colour,” he said. As a package, whether you’re picking and packing, or just driving past, the gloriously coloured Sebire persimmon patch is a feast for the eyes.

The Kalorama Chestnut Festival started as a ‘chestnut roast’ within the pre-school grounds at Mount Dandenong and has grown into a major event in the area through the collaboration of pre-school parents and the community. “We are living in an area that

has quite a lot of growth of the chestnut,” Ms King said. “There is a long rich history of selling chestnuts from the kindergarten, which has grown into a beast of its own with the festival.” The Kalorama Chestnut Festival is on Sunday 4 May from 10am to 4pm at Kalorama Reserve.

Leaves back to the soil By KATH GANNAWAY TURNING autumn leaves into a rich, beautiful soil additive is so much better than turning them into a layer of smoke - and it’s easy to do, even if you don’t have a lot of space. Fill two or three sturdy garbage bags with a mix of leaves and grass clippings, layering them until the bags are full. Toss in a handful of cow manure and mix it all up a bit. If you can get your hands on some comfrey, shred a couple of handfuls and mix it in to help with decomposition. Chopping up the leaves with a mower, or a leaf shredder also moves things along a bit quicker. Compress the leaves firmly and add half a bucket of water. Punch a few air holes in the bag with a screwdriver and tie the top firmly. Place the bags in an ‘out of sight’ spot in the yard and turn them every two months or so until spring when you will have a rich, crumbly, organic compost ready to add to your spring garden beds. Best of all, your neighbours will love the fact that you didn’t smoke them out last autumn!

Anzac living on in boys and girls SOME 100 eager Birmingham Primary School Grade 1 students visited the Mount Evelyn RSL to learn the importance of Anzac Day. Last Thursday the students gathered in the Mount Evelyn Memorial Garden to listen to a talk by Mount Evelyn RSL secretary Anthony McAleer and then made their way to the RSL hall to continue their learning. Mr McAleer said the students are currently learning about their community and this is an event the RSL hosts each year for the students

and it is a day both the RSL and school look forward to. “They come up to the club for a talk by a veteran, a performance by our piper, an Anzac biscuit, an Australian flag each and for a chance to look around and try on some uniforms,” he said. Mount Evelyn RSL Facebook user Sharon Tudball Smith thanked the RSL for letting the school visit. “We all had a fantastic time and the children have been busy writing about their favourite parts of the day,” she said.

“People say cats won’t hunt; well, they will, it’s their natural instinct and you can’t take that instinct out of the cat, but you can control what your cat does,” he said. Michael Rodd of Cat Kingdom Enclosures in Wandin has been catering to cat-owners need to keep their cats on their property. He said the main reason people came to him was for the safety of their cats, concerned about road accidents and attack by other cats and dogs, , or because of neighbourhood problems associated with their cats roaming. When the Mail asked cat owners for their views on our Facebook page, many felt it was a cruel and unwarranted punishment on them and their cats, but the majority were in favour - even if they saw problems with putting it into practice. Stacey May supported a night cur-

few, but said 24 hours was ridiculous and cruel. She predicted a huge increase in the number of cats dumped at animal shelters. A rise in rats and mice was another unintended consequence flagged by several cat-owners, the cost of runs, and others who work long hours and whose cats are outdoor types were concerned about how to change life-long habits - theirs and their cats. Yarra Ranges Council has said it will start enforcing the new cat curfew in six months, allowing cat-owners time to make the changes. They pointed out that the curfew applies to the owner’s property, not only their house. Information on how to confine cats is available at www.depi.vic.gov.au/ pets/cats , and brochures are available at Council’s Community Links.

a cat that’s gone missing, so it’s not good for their safety and they are no different from dog owners in that they have an introduced species as a pet. “You wouldn’t let cattle, chooks, horses or dogs wander, so why should cats be any different.” Healesville Sanctuary director Glen Holland said cat and dog attacks were the second highest cause of the thousands of animal injuries they saw every year. “Most cat and dog owners are responsible; people just need to be aware of the wildlife in their garden,” Mr Holland said. Sanctuary vet nurse and keeper Ian Elton is at the coal face of cat attack on wildlife and cites Rosie, a feisty rosella who is being treated after being saved from the jaws of a domestic cat, as a very good reason for the law he also applauds.

WILDLIFE protection and cat welfare groups have applauded new 24-hour cat containment laws across Yarra Ranges. But, as news spread of the vote by Yarra Ranges Council to make it mandatory for cats to be kept on their owner’s property 24/7, the fur is flying on social media between wildlife advocates, cat owners who support the move and cat owners who say it is unnecessary and unenforceable. The cat curfew was endorsed unanimously by Yarra Ranges councillors, based on community consultation which identified concerns about cats allowed to wander. Those concerns were about environmental and amenity issues with the preference for a 24-hour curfew outnumbering a night-time curfew only

by 135 to 91, with eight responses not in favour of any curfew. The Sherbrooke Lyrebird Survey Group is among the strongest supporters for the new rules, saying cats are wreaking havoc on lyrebirds and other wildlife in Sherbrooke Forest and across the hills region. Former National Park ranges and SLSG president John Lloyd said domestic and feral cats were responsible for killing not only birds but also reptiles and small marsupials. Menzies Creek resident Anita Walker contacted the Mail saying she was excited that the councillors had had the courage to pass a much-needed law. While her main concern is wildlife, she said cat-owners should have the same responsibilities as other pet owners. “Every week, I see a notice about

Festival upholds heritage By KATH GANNAWAY THE second Coranderrk Festival at Healesville on Saturday raised awareness of Healesville’s Indigenous heritage another notch. The festival opened the former Coranderrk Aboriginal Station to the public for a day of music, history, storytelling, dance, art and simply being on the land. Organisers Brooke Wandin and sister

Jacqui said they were very happy with the day. “We believe the message we have been sending out about people learning about Coranderrk is being embraced with a lot more Healesville people at the festival this year, and we’re very pleased about that,” Jacqui said. She said a highlight was the amazing, quality music they were able to bring to Coranderrk.

Among the six-hour line-up were Healesville band Telecom Joe, Waak Waak Djungi with Sebastian Jorgensen, Bobby Bunnungurr and Sally Grice, and Coloured Stone.

APPRENTICESHIP and traineeship completion rates remain poor despite escalating costs. Last Wednesday the Victorian Auditor-General released a report into apprenticeship and traineeship completion and found the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) has seen no increase in the proportion of apprentices or trainees who complete their training. “As was the case in 2004, over a third of people who start an apprenticeship or traineeship do not complete it,” the report stated. “These are disappointing results given that there has been a 37 per cent increase - in real terms - in funding to apprenticeships and traineeships since 2004.” Yarra Valley Educational Precinct committee leader Bernard Dobson said factors such as travel time, condensed course times and students picking the wrong course to start with all affect the drop-out rates. “Students are being asked to complete a four-year course in three years - they are continually being asked to do more and more,” Mr Dobson said.

“I would like to see schools having a greater involvement in helping students in their higher education pathways. “VCAL starts in year 11 and 12 but I’d like to see something in year 9 and 10 for students to really explore options and to experience different trades before they decide.” Last week the Mail reported that the 2011 ABS Census data shows the Yarra Ranges highest education attainment of certificates is 7.2 per cent higher than Metro Australia and 0.3 per cent higher in advanced diploma attainments. Mr Dobson said with the closure of both the Swinburne Lilydale campus and Morrison’s means the outer east was now the most educationally underprivileged region in Melbourne in regards to postsecondary education. “Action is required from all political parties to ensure that this educational disadvantage is significantly reduced by ensuring that the Lilydale site is retained from university, vocational, and community education,” he said. “We call for innovative forms of higher education and training to be considered, including a variety of forms of co-operation between various educational institutions, industry groups and the community.”

Gas blast caused fire By REBECCA BILLS

A GAS explosion is the cause of the Charles Street house fire last Tuesday that is believed to have killed a pet dog. Mount Evelyn CFA Captain Jim Armstrong said they understood there was a gas leak from the kitchen area of the Lilydale property. “All the gas accumulated under the house and an ignition force from the hot water pilot light set if off,” he said. “That’s why the fire escalated so quickly. “We did receive a call for an explosion and a big black smoke cloud be-

fore we were called to the house fire and now that we know the cause of the fire, all the pieces are starting to make sense.” The fire crew was called to premises at 2.17pm on Tuesday 11 March and the house was gutted by fire. Capt Armstrong said the pet dog still had not been found, and it was presumed it perished in the fire. “When we first arrived, there was little we could do to save the structure,” Capt Armstrong said. “The house was fully involved in fire and the tin roof had collapsed

across the whole house and was at the height of the floor. “There were initial fears that someone was inside as there was an unlocked car in the carport, however police were able to account for the people who lived there as they arrived home a few hours later.” According to the Bureau of Meteorology, temperature on the day reached a high of 31.2 degrees with wind gusts of 46 kilometres an hour. Capt Armstrong said due to the heat, wind and humidity on the day a special rehab unit from Yellingbo Fire Brigade and an ambulance was on

scene checking the health of the firefighters as they came off the fire line. “The toxic levels coming off the fire were very high, but they always are in those kinds of fires,” he said. “Thick black smoke was rising into the air and because of the prevailing wind it was heading up Mount Dandenong, and that’s why we had warnings out to the public on the day. “I would like to congratulate the work of the crew to stop the fire going next door and containing a small scrub fire around the burning house which started from the fire.”

Channel Road: home to hoons? MOST nights Megan Marshall hears tyres screech outside her house… and then she waits for a bang. Luckily, the second sound doesn’t happen too often, but Ms Marshall fears if speed reduction tools like speed humps or roundabouts aren’t built in Channel Road, the result could be deadly. “All built up residential areas in Victoria have a speed limit of 50, so I don’t understand why our road has become a racetrack,” Ms Marshall said. “The same rule applies to Channel Road, but the general public don’t seem to follow it here.” Ms Marshall said there had been a number of near misses in the past few months involving children walking alongside the park with speeding cars. “And by speeding, I mean in excess of 70 kilometres an hour,” she said. “Cars and buses feel like they

need to cross onto the wrong side of the road to overtake a turning car, even on a blind corner - they use it like a race way.” Ms Marshall said she had reported the issue to the Yarra Ranges Council four times in the last few months, and said the council acted quickly to put up speed limit signs and placed speed markers on the road. “We have people speeding most days, it’s not just a quiet road, a lot of people use it as a thoroughfare,” she said. “I think its become a bit of a favourite spot for local hoons at night, too.” Yarra Ranges Council director of environment and engineering Mark Varmalis said Channel Road will be considered as part of budget preparations for the 2014/15 Capital Expenditure Program. “However, based on other commitments, priorities and funding availability, funding may not be available for at least three years.”

viders on 7 March, he was happy with the progress so far as they company headed towards insolvency. Mr Deregon previously told the Mail that the intended outcome of the meeting was to ensure all parties were on the same page in terms of information and direction while building the strategy and action plan for the next phase. “It was very constructive in the way that they will help Morrisons in transferring of services to different providers so there will be virtually no impact on students,” he said. “It’s all progressing really well, all good news at this point. “We are at the moment making sure there is support of all relevant councils, the Department of Human Services and the Department of Education.”

RUMOURS around town that KFC has purchased the Snooty Fox site in Olinda are completely false, according to a spokesperson for the fast-food chain. “It is just chatter and rumour,” the spokesperson said. “We have not purchased the site, and we are not considering that land.” The spokesperson said the chain can also rule out a store in the Yarra Ranges. “We are not purchasing or intending on purchasing land in the Dandenong Ranges, nor do we have any plans at this time.”

Couple’s heartfelt generosity A SMALL plaque has been hung next to the donated defibrillator at Mount Evelyn Chemmart to thank Joan and Victor Chittenden. Mr and Mrs Chittenden donated a new defibrillator to the Mount Evelyn community after Mr Chittenden read in a local newspaper that one was donated to the community of Montrose. “I thought if they can do it we could donate one to the Mount Evelyn community so I had a chat to Joan about donating one,” he said. The couple, who have lived in the area for more than 40 years, said they have watched the town grow into what it is today. “Now with all the new shops and people we want everyone to be safe,” Mr Chittenden said. “I’m not saying that everyone is going to pass out, and we certainly don’t want them to, we just want it there as precaution. “The nearest ambulance is around 10 minutes

away and that is 10 minutes of waiting time if someone needed one.” Mrs Chittenden said they are thrilled the defibrillator is located at the pharmacy. “We paid cash for it out of our own savings we are pensioners, too,” she said. “Hopefully we are not the first ones to have to try it.” Deputy Mayor Maria McCarthy said the town was privileged to have people such as the Chittendens to provide such a service to the community. “It just means now that if people need that particular service they can come here on any day as both the IGA and Chemmart are open seven days a week,” she said. “There is no fear now that if someone needs a defibrillator there is one handy - it’s very convenient and we are very lucky to have two in one town.”

THE Labour Day weekend was a success for the Yarra Ranges Traffic Management Unit. Sergeant John Morgan said the weekend brought excellent results, considering that the Yarra Ranges was classed as a high risk area. He said that the Yarra Ranges, one of the top 10 worst collision areas, was a major focus of road policing throughout the state. “We were able to enforce the law with the help of the Highway Patrol and we were happy to have a large number of preliminary breath tests, the most in the high risk areas,” he said.

FORMER Morrisons CEO Jan Simmons has hit back at criticism from Morrisons about her ‘leadership failures’ saying she won’t take part in any ‘slanging match’. At the METIC community meeting held on Thursday 6 March at Mount Evelyn’s Station House, Morrisons Board of Governance member Geoff McPherson said that due to failures of leadership, management, operational control, and financial accountability together with funding changes, Morrisons was unable to budget for 2014. “It’s best for me not to enter into this kind of slanging match - if that’s how they want to play it then so be it,” Ms Simmons said.

“At the end of the day people can have a look at our financial and annual report - the financials speak for themselves. Ms Simmons said despite the criticism of her leadership at the organisation, her history stood on its merits. “It’s a tough one to deal with, really emotional times, and for me it’s even more emotional - I’ve invested most of my life in Morrisons,” she said. Ms Simmons said it was suggested to her not to attend the METIC community meeting on Thursday 6 March at the Station House in Mount Evelyn. “Things can get a bit horrid at times and it was suggested that it would be best for me not to attend,” she said. Current Morrisons CEO Joe Deregon said after a special meeting with key funding pro-

POLICE car windows were smashed, as were shop windows opposite the Lilydale Police Station and the petrol station next door was subject to an armed robbery in the early hours of Friday morning. A 35-year-old Millgrove man was caught and charged with criminal damage after his crime spree about 3am. Detective Senior Sergeant Allan Price said the man used a brick to smash windows at the shops opposite the police station, before turning his attention to the police cars parked in the street. “He used a brick to smash the windows of a police van and transit car,” Sen Sgt Price said. “He then went on to commit an armed robbery wanting cigarettes, using the brick as a weapon.” The man will face court at a later date.

A SCHOOL project has resulted in studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; art becoming a permanent part of the scenery. Yering Primary School installed a new mural, painted on a series of boards, on its art roomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exterior wall on Monday 3 March above the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frog bog area. Children at the school had been working on the mural since about August with supplies donated by Bunnings Croydon. The mural depicts a river with a frog sitting on a lily pad, with ants, dragonflies and a big sun also dominating the landscape. Principal Deanna Cole said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all their work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They helped to design the mural with Renae Wright last year, she put it onto the boards

No matter what issue you are dealing with it is important to act as early as possible and seek professional advice. The first port of call should always be your veterinarian to rule out a physical or medical cause. Whether the problem is physical or emotional will determine if your pet needs veterinary or behavioural treatment and in some cases it may be a combination of both. Pets are supposed to be a pleasure not a chore but it is up to us as owners to set them up for success and help them to be the best they can be.

tion problem but a significant number of the pets that we see arrive do so because things have gone wrong in the home environment, particularly dogs. Many of the behaviours I mentioned before can be avoided or resolved if owners address them early. The longer they have been established the harder they will be to extinguish. Every issue will have its own unique trigger or cause and need to be treated on an individual basis. Of course there are some common problems such as thunder phobia, a very frustrating problem for the owner, not to mention the traumatic effect it has on the dog.

Primary and secondary schools from Mount Evelyn banded together in an attempt to stamp out bullying as part of a new program run by and for students. In partnership with the Rotary Club of Lilydale, schools in the area worked with local artists to create meaningful pieces that let their feelings about bullying be heard. Last week, the fruits of their labour paid off, with all involved launching an exhibition at Morrisons Café. S

ing a greater involvement in helping students in their higher education pathways. “VCAL starts in year 11 and 12 but I’d like to see something in year 9 and 10 for students to really explore options and to experience different trades before they decide.” Last week the Mail reported that the 2011 ABS Census data shows the Yarra Ranges highest education attainment of certificates is 7.2 per cent higher than Metro Australia and 0.3 per cent higher in advanced diploma attainments. Mr Dobson said with the closure of both the Swinburne Lilydale campus and Morrison’s means the outer east was now the most educationally underprivileged region in Melbourne in regards to postsecondary education. “Action is required from all political parties to ensure that this educational disadvantage is significantly reduced by ensuring that the Lilydale site is retained from university, vocational, and community education,” he said. “We call for innovative forms of higher education and training to be considered, including a variety of forms of co-operation between various educational institutions, industry groups and the community.”

At last year’s Mount Evelyn Township Planning Night, representatives from Mount Evelyn Primary School put forward the idea of a youth summit to focus on issues affecting children in the town. After engaging with Yarra Hills Secondary College and St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, the group has received a $10,000 grant as part of the Victorian Government’s Bully Stoppers program. At the launch, Lilydale Rotary president Helen McDonald said it had been a wonderful and inspiring program to be

APPRENTICESHIP and traineeship completion rates remain poor despite escalating costs. Last Wednesday the Victorian Auditor-General released a report into apprenticeship and traineeship completion and found the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) has seen no increase in the proportion of apprentices or trainees who complete their training. “As was the case in 2004, over a third of people who start an apprenticeship or traineeship do not complete it,” the report stated. “These are disappointing results given that there has been a 37 per cent increase - in real terms - in funding to apprenticeships and traineeships since 2004.” Yarra Valley Educational Precinct committee leader Bernard Dobson said factors such as travel time, condensed course times and students picking the wrong course to start with all affect the drop-out rates. “Students are being asked to complete a four-year course in three years - they are continually being asked to do more and more,” Mr Dobson said. “I would like to see schools hav-

Cover work risks THE announcement that the new environmental workforce for 18 to 25-year-olds - the “green army” - will not be covered by any workers’ compensation scheme is extremely worrying for people who care about the consequences of work place injuries. Under usual work arrangements, employers are required to ensure their employees are protected by a workers’ compensation scheme and health and safety standards. We are very concerned that members of the “green army” will not be protected in the same way as other workers. These young workers will undertake heavy manual labour including clearing local creeks and waterways, fencing and tree planting - work that carries a high level of physical risk. If these young workers are injured and not covered by a workers’ compensation scheme which is focused on early intervention and returning employees to work, there is a risk that if they suffer a serious injury without help, they may not return to work. If state and federal governments are serious about providing these young workers with a fair and reasonable opportunity to join the workforce, they should work together to provide them with the same workplace injury protection as other employees in Australia. Rachael James, Senior Comcare Lawyer Slater & Gordon, Melbourne.

Keep rifles out THE Premier’s proposal to cull deer in the Dandenongs using 54 shooters with high-powered rifles is very dangerous. These reserves are quite small and surrounded by houses and a bullet could easy travel right across the whole reserve - as they can travel up to two kilometres. High-powered rifles and houses don’t mix and should not be used within 500 metres of a house under any circumstances, as someone could be shot. Will the Premier ensure that this rule in abided by to protect local communities? A local chap is willing to use a bow and arrow to hunt deer, a far safer option. Bruce Johnson, Silvan.

Youth cuts a concern EDUCATIONAL outcomes for youth in our community should be of major concern for all of us. Knox Council’s Youth Strategy 2012-17 shows that young people aged between 10 and 25 years comprise 20 per cent of the local population. Yet attainment of Year 12 or equivalent sits below the state average and well below the average for other municipalities within the Eastern Metropolitan Area. You might think this would be a call to arms for the State Government to invest in and resource local education providers, but instead the Napthine Government has committed cut

after cut across all tiers of education. Cuts to the TAFE sector of $290 million each year have proven disastrous with the closure of campuses, the closure of traditional trade courses, and the introduction of higher fess so that those already struggling financially are less likely to see TAFE as a pathway to a better job. Last week’s Victorian Auditor General’s report clearly shows not one additional apprenticeship has been created under the Napthine Government, despite industry crying out for skilled workers and the youth unemployment rate skyrocketing. In response, Peter Hall the minister responsible for TAFE, literally cuts and runs his way into an early retirement. In our schools and Adult Community Education (ACE) providers, the situation isn’t any better. Under Napthine, infrastructure capital spending has more than halved, funding for support officers has been quartered, and the schools’ Start Bonus and the Education Maintenance Allowance payment are being scrapped altogether. Funding has also been slashed for VCAL programs in schools, TAFEs and ACE Providers such as the Mountain District Learning Centre (MDLC) in Ferntree Gully. MDLC has about 80 people enrolled in their VCAL and VCE program, with another 50 on the waiting list. That’s 50 kids who want to continue their education but can’t. The evidence is clear, when young people disengage from education it is bad news for everyone. It doesn’t help the young person, it doesn’t help the economy, and it doesn’t help our local community. Across the state, but particularly within our local community, young people should be encouraged to continue with their education at all costs, but instead Napthine’s cuts to TAFE, VCAL and our schooling system continues to do exactly the opposite. Matt Posetti, Labor candidate, Ferntree Gully.

One term wonder MANY years ago I worked with a wonderful lady who was very wise. She would say “people who are clever often do not have any common sense”. I look to our Prime Minister, a Rhodes Scholar now six months into the job. He hasn’t covered himself in glory; managing in about six weeks to insult not one but three presidents in the Asian region, Indonesia, china and Japan. He now wants the general public to go easy on Scott Morrison as he has a difficult portfolio. Give me a break. I feel that I am living in a parallel universe because nothing makes sense. If you read George Orwells’ 1984 you would know where I am coming from. To me it sounds like ’Screw the lower paid who are doing it tough and give it to the rich’. May I say if you are earning between $75,000 and $150,000 why do you need this money? Oh silly me, these are women of calibre, come to Cockatoo Mr Abbott. I will show you the mums who do it so bloody tough your head

would spin. I feel you will be a one term government. My beautiful great grandchild came to see me with her mum when she was two months old sucking on her dummy for all it was worth. I posed the question: Did she think that Tony Abbott would be gone after one term? Spit out the dummy if the answer is yes. She looked at me and she spat out her dummy. A very discerning child and I see big things for her. Val Butler, Cockatoo.

Stop flight path RE: Passenger jet flight path over Dandenong Ranges. I have put in writing my concerns regarding the increase in passenger jet traffic directly over the Dandenong Ranges to Airservices and Noise Complaint Information Service, and they stated in writing that there are more passenger jets going over the Dandenong Ranges bound for L.A and New Zealand. The noise intrusion disturbs the peace of the Dandenong Ranges renowned and loved for its natural beauty and tranquillity and if we don’t send a clear message that a jet flight path over the Dandenongs is not acceptable, we will have more jets and more noise disturbance in the future. To stop the noise and air traffic over the Dandenong Ranges contact: Jason Wood our local Federal Member and Airservices and Noise complaint and Information Service, (NCIS), on 1800 802 583, email ncis@airservicesaustralia.com or by mail at: NCIS, PO Box 211, Mascot, NSW, 1460. Matthew Parker, Emerald.

Stand proud, defiant MCDONALD’S Corporation and Boronia franchisee James Currie have made no attempt to win over hills residents, as they know it’s futile. Results of the original McDonald’s phone survey remain undeclared as they unashamedly continue to lie when suggesting they have overwhelming support for the Tecoma development. Recently some hills residents performed a surprise ’Clean-Up Australia Day’ around James Currie’s Boronia outlet. What a disgrace! Streets plastered with branded litter. Blowing down streets, discarded on nature strips, overflowing from bins, under shrubs and clogging drains. Is this the future of Tecoma, the beautiful Dandenong Ranges National Park and the Greater Dandenong Ranges? Is this what we want within 70 metres of our kinder and Primary school? McDonald’s has only one hope to remain embedded in Tecoma... and that is our silent complacency. While proposed C126 amendments will provide a massive disincentive for further fast food developments in the hills; I personally believe it is the respect that our community has gathered over the past two years that will see Tecoma once again McDonald’s free.

As has become common we have had no communication from McDonald’s as to their intentions for opening day but I will quite happily share mine. When word is received that the doors have opened I intend to don my well worn red t-shirt and proceed to the outlet. I will turn my back on the ‘UNWELCOME VISITOR’ and continue to peacefully and quietly protest it’s presence in Tecoma. The image of our passionate community still uniting to peacefully declare our opposition to this development is far more powerful than anger, abuse or violence. There will be no need to ‘move me on’ as I have no intention of causing any disturbance, harassing any patrons or threatening any employees. My intention is to continue to educate and share our history with passers-by. I intend to make my family proud, to make my community proud and to maintain the respect our community has gained with integrity and determination. Every Monday morning when the children of Tecoma Primary attend assembly they start with the following school oath: I love my country, my home and my school. I am honest and reliable. I show good sportsmanship. I care for the environment. And I help to make the world a better place. Our community has set an excellent example for our Hills children. Stand proud Tecoma and remain brave. Esther Kelly, Tecoma.

No puff to laws THE Department of Health’s smoke free laws protecting children in their play and outdoor areas are long overdue. However, why are these new laws only limited to reducing children’s exposure to tobacco smoke? Exposure to burn off smoke (created by both private and public land burning) for children and all others is, by a very long way, a much worse health hazard than some tobacco smoke being emitted within 10 metres. Hills’ children and all other residents are continually exposed to toxic burn-off smoke not only in their play areas but in their schools, homes and most other areas in the Hills. Should we trust the State Government to do the right thing protecting our health and well being? After their pathetic handling of the Morwell coal fires, I think not! The summer fire season is coming to an end and soon we will have all those selfish and uncaring private land burners filling our air with toxic smoke. In addition, we will have government authorities boasting of how they have exceeded their burn-off quotas by destroying the environment and creating tonnes of carbon pollution in the process. Does anyone have faith that the burners, authorities, local and state governments will do the right thing to protect our health and amenity? John Christie, Menzies Creek.

School’s histor y opened up By KATH GANNAWAY THE story of Badger Creek State School No. 3309 is now an open book for visitors to Badger Creek. Two history boards launched on Friday 7 March, in the grounds of the original school building tell the story in words and pictures of the school’s history from when it was opened in Badger Creek in 1899 to the present day. The boards were an initiative of the 1940s/50s Ex-students Group who got together after a reunion in 2011 and worked with the Badger Creek Primary School (BCPS) and the BCOSB Committee of Management to research and design the boards. The grounds of the BCOSB

were packed with current and former students and teachers, and members of the 40s/50s group and the BCOSB committee. Special guests included Yarra Ranges mayor Fiona McAllister and local CFA captain Joshua Martin representing the many CFA members involved in the restoration and continued operation of the old school. The boards were launched by BCPS captains Milla and Tom, Mervyn Bullas representing the reunion group and Kevin Mason representing the BCOSB committee. Mr Bullas thanked the Grade 5 and 6 students and teachers who worked on the board and the Museum of Victoria for

making historic photographs available. He said the school was a very special place with wonderful memories for members of his group and a history that would be of interest to visitors to the area and the local community. BCOSB member Ray Frogley spoke of the fight to save the original school building and how it was dismantled, moved and restored for on-going community use as a Shire of Yarra Ranges facility. See more photos of the launch and former student Lynette Kennedy’s article ‘Badger Creek - The Place And The People’ online at mail.starcommunity.com.au

Sauces enter the fray By JESSE GRAHAM THE Yarra Valley is set to get saucy. A swathe of sauces will come forth for judging early next month, all aiming to have the best of the bunch, and there’s still time for residents to enter their home recipes. Yarra Valley Gateway Estate, Bella Vedere, Gladysdale Bakehouse and Cunliffe and Waters are searching for the best tomato sauce, relish, chutney or pasta sauce in the area. The four businesses have teamed up to run a sauce competition, which is calling on all residents to submit their best tomatobased sauce recipe to be judged by 6 April. Brett Stirling from Yarra Valley Gateway Estate said the competition came from a deep appreciation of sauces, and numerous stories of

secret home-cooked recipes. “So many people come and buy tomatoe sauces and tell us they use their grandma’s recipe ... and it’s amazing just how many stories are behind it,” he said. “There’s a story behind every sauce.” The competition has no entry cost, and a judges Caroline Gray (Cunliffe and Waters), Jason Rush (Gladysdale Bakehouse) and Gary Cooper (Belle Vedere) will be scoring each of the submitted sauces. The public will also get a chance to have their say, with a People’s Choice award being handed out after Judgement Day on Saturday 12 April. Residents can come down to taste-test the top 10 sauce entries and cast their vote on the day, with the judge’s awards and the People’s Choice Award announced at 5pm.

Mr Stirling said judges will be looking at the flavour, consistency and texture of the sauces, among other criteria. First prize in the contest is a cooking class with judge Gary Cooper at Bella Vedere, valued at $150, while second prize is a dinner for two at Rustik Restaurant at Gladysdale, valued at $130. The People’s Choice winner will be awarded a Yarra Valley gourmet food hamper, valued at $100.To enter, drop off 500ml of a tomato-based sauce, relish, chutney or pasta sauce to any of the four participating businesses by 5pm on Sunday 6 April. Entries must have a name, phone number, email address and product description on the jar, and have to have been made this season. For more information, visit Yarra Valley Gateway Estate’s Facebook page or call 9739 0568.

Hot stuff brings tears all round By MELISSA MEEHAN MELBOURNE’S Food and Wine Festival came to the Yarra Valley this month, with local producers keen to show off their produce. The Herb and Chilli Festival was held on Saturday and Sunday, with thousands of visitors keen to get a taste of the hot stuff. The new chilli chicken eating competition was a winner, with a number of contenders putting their hand up to take on the burning sauce.

Each of them devoured the chicken with tears streaming down every face, but a man named Gabi was able to finish first. Last weekend, Yarra Ranges producers were able to showcase the very best of the area as nine Malaysian chefs toured Victoria. Stopping for lunch at Thousand Candles winery in Wandin, the chefs were impressed with local trout, cheeses and beef - even hoping to secure a deal to have the produce at their

own high class restaurants. Herb and Chilli Festival organiser and member of Agribusiness Yarra Valley and chairman of Victorian Agribusiness Council Clive Larkman had his finger in both pies, and said he was especially proud that the Yarra Valley was able to be a part of the Food and Wine Festival. “We have so much to offer here in the Yarra Valley,” he said. “It’s wonderful to be able to showcase that.”

Permaculture Yarra Valley is organising the event and member Paul Judd said this year’s event will be in an expo-style, promoting sustainable living and local agriculture. “What we’re aiming to do is get people to buy local food, so that we reduce

the amount of food miles, or distance that food has to travel,” Mr Judd said. He said that numerous stalls at the festival will be displaying organic produce while some will showcase technologies, such as solar systems and an electric car will even make an appearance. “We’re trying to get people to think more about environmental products and food,” Mr Judd said. Food lovers will be well-off at Autumnfest, with organic fruit, vegetables and fruit juice available, along with olive oil, honey, local-roasted coffee, bread, pickles jams and sauces.

With bees under threat around the world, the focus on honey bees will raise awareness of their plight and the potential consequences for everyone from home gardeners to local and global producers of food, flowers and other plants. “We really wanted to get the information out about how important bees are, how much we rely on them for our food needs and what a massive part of sustainability they are,” Chelsea said. “We wanted to celebrate the honey

Foot tapping tunes CLASSIC Celtic music will fill the halls of a local home for the beginning of a specially-formatted concert series which is set to start at the end of the month. Classically Celtic will be performing at Coomalie, 111 Badger Weir Road in Healesville on Sunday 30 March in a house-concert format that will bring visitors up close and personal with the music. The group’s trio is made up of Cathy Blake and her daughters, Kim and Michelle Doyle, all of whom will perform throughout the afternoon at the venue. The afternoon promises a variety of tunes, drawing on traditional Celtic music, with slow Scottish airs and foot-tapping Irish jigs bringing life and energy to the venue. Coomalie is owned by Cathy’s parents, Brian and Ursula Blake, both of whom have had a lifetime of musical passion and a house designed to maximise musical experience. Brian said the Classically Celtic concert will be the beginning of a six-month concert series, with a different group or performer demonstrating their skills every six weeks at the house. He said that the Concerts at Coomalie series are a chance to get young professional musicians in the spotlight, and give them some exposure to the public, while enjoying classical music. “Music is something you

A regional partnership with the TAC and the Victorian Government.

‘Think safety’, drivers urged

Assistant Commissioner Robert Hill has spoken out about the rise in the road toll.

ROAD safety police are calling on all Victorians to stop the carnage and slow down. At a press conference last week, Assistant Commissioner Robert Hill said he urged all Victorians to be more conscious of their road safety. “We have had 58 people killed on our roads as compared to 44 at the same time last year,” he said. “We have had two quadruples, a triple fatality and a number of double fatalities. This is critical for all Victorians - everyone has a role to play.” It comes after the deaths of four members of the Beckett family last

month in Catani and the quadruple fatality in Burramboot on 9 March. “Everyone is responsible for the road toll - we are pleading with all Victorians to take care on the roads,” Mr Hill said. “Be mindful for your road safety. “Be mindful of the road rules and drive within the speed limits.” Mr Hill said the road toll fluctuated but it had been a particularly concerning month on the state’s roads. “The last time we had so many people killed in a short amount of time was in October 2012,” he said. “We need to turn this around. “Everyone needs to be conscious of their road safety. Far too many

people exceed the speed limit.” According to research, 20 per cent of road trauma is caused by low level speeding. Mr Hill said Victoria Police was committed to slowing everyone down. “We need to be conscious of the speed limits and the conditions we are travelling in,” he said. “It is an alarming trend and the Chief Commissioner is concerned - we need to stop the carnage on our roads. “As parents, we need to have conversations with our young kids and young adults that have driver’s licences.” Mr Hill said that it was important that parents spoke to their children about good driver behaviour.

Test blitz targets alcohol HEALESVILLE and Yarra Glen police were part of operation Harrid over the Labour Day long weekend breath-testing drivers travelling through Healesville on Monday. While the Healesville result was good with no positive bloodalcohol results recorded, across Yarra Ranges other results were not so positive. Yarra Ranges Highway Patrol and local police across the region tested 5048 drivers with five drivers picked up for drink-driving. Police said to have anyone driving over the limit, and more than 300 other offences recorded was disappointing and only reinforces their commitment to strong and consistent policing of the region’s highways. 116794 Picture: KATH GANNAWAY

PADDLE IN FOR THE RIVER FRONTAGE IN an idyllic setting on approximately three acres, this combination brick and weatherboard home will take the new owners a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There is a large open plan kitchen, living and dining upstairs, with clear picture windows looking out to the surrounding mountains and dam in the back yard complete with waterlilies. Cathedral ceilings, open wood fire, split system and a formal dining area make this home comfortable, while maintaining an impressive feel. The deck has been built to allow the owners to enjoy the landscape and there is even a built-in barbecue making it ideal for entertaining. The upstairs master bedroom has a spacious walk-in wardrobe and a bathroom has extra storage/wardrobe space. Downstairs there are two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, a study or third

bedroom, big laundry, bathroom and a wood heater. The driveway goes past the dam and finishes at the huge shed that has power, water and a mezzanine floor with a ‘man cave’ set up that is mostly lined. The rear of the property reaches the river reserve and just beyond is the Little Yarra River, a beautiful spot to sit during summer under filtered sunlight. A sprinkler system is set up on the roof of the house and there is a shed, which is used in summer to help keep the house cool on warmer days. A property like this with so many features is hard to find, especially in a location like this. It is within a short drive to Yarra Junction township and both primary and secondary schools. This is ideal for someone looking for a tree change property that doesn’t require a huge amount of maintenance. The selling agent says an inspection will not disappoint.

Blues to defend title YARRA Valley Cricket Association finals kicked off this weekend after a season of intriguing results leading to a much-anticipated finals series. In all grades, final positions were only decided in the final round, so it was expected that the Semi Finals would be closely fought contests. In the competition’s premier grade, DJ Strachan Shield, the old adage that form at the right time of the year is vitally important going into finals rang true as reigning premiers Seville face Yarra Junction in the Grand Final. Both sides have clearly been the best in the business since Christmas and thoroughly deserve their opportunity to take out the ultimate prize. Seville hosted Woori Yallock and made the most of winning the toss and batting. With mixed fortunes with the bat in the final two rounds of the home-and- away season, many wondered which Seville would turn up. Woori Yallock has the bowling attack to challenge the reigning champions and early signs were positive for the Tigers. However, the ship towards the Grand Final had already well and truly set sail. In RA Finger Trophy action, Healesville will meet Yarra Junction in an unlikely pairing as most had pencilled in another Healesville/Seville Grand Final battle. Yarra Junction pulled off the biggest upset of the Semi Final weekend as they stopped the powerful Seville line-up in their tracks - halting the Blues in their quest for a fourth consecutive premiership. Yarra Junction was able to restrict Seville to 9/170 in a fascinating battle between bat and ball on day one. Experienced trio Scott Luckhurst (41), Scott Troyhan (33 n.o.) and Garth Woodford (21) ensured the Blues would have a total to defend. However, the equally experienced Chris Fall (5/40) applied the brakes on the innings to have his Eagles well and truly in the race. Launching Place secured their place in the Grand Final with a commanding victory over Seville. Launch scored an impressive 298, on day one, on the back of a superb century by Cam Hoare. Well supported by Lennie Jenkins (42) and Andy Vandervlugt (46), Hoare had Launch on target for a massive score at 5/265 with 20 overs to play. A fight back from Craig Rackham (5/63) and Liam McGookin (3/21) ensured Seville did exceptionally well to restrict the score to under 300. The chase still proved too great for the Blues as run machine Hoare completed a remarkable individual game taking 7/33 and rolling Seville

Seville’s Scott Rackham tries for a single. Picture: GREG CARRICK 116874

Seville’s Lee Aitkins goes out LBW bowled by Jackson Wright (Woori Yallock). 116874 for 89 in the process. In the other Semi, Wandin completed an impressive victory on the road to Marysville. Batting first, Dave Marshall (85) and Jamie Oakley (58) continued their brilliant form with the bat leading the Bulldogs to 257. Marysville have been the in-form team in C Grade all season and one expected the Villains to give the total a shake on home soil. Leigh Fisher (70) has been a star with the bat all season, and at times in their chase, it looked as though he may drag his side to victory. His dismissal in sight of another century brought the challenge to an end as Oakley (4/40) and Brent Johnson (3/47) ensured the Bulldogs would feature in Grand Final action - dismissing the Villains for 165. Like the other grades, many had the top two teams in D Grade, Powelltown and Wandin, well ahead in the race to the Grand Final but after day one of action both semi-finals were well in the balance. Tony Spargo (72) and Lyle Roberts (40) did their best to thwart a formidable Powelltown attack led by Benny Dunne (5/41) and Stuart Thompson (3/44). Seville’s total of 184 had the game well poised however overnight rain and afternoon showers forced the abandonment of the second day’s play ending Seville’s brave fight for a place in the big dance. Wandin posted a tricky chase of 225 on day one of their contest against Yarra Junction with Dave Thorne (64) and Michael Haggar (37) leading the way for the Bulldogs. Youngster Jesse Cook (4/59) and the experienced David Flutter (2/19) kept thing in check with the ball and the value of their efforts became more evident as the second day’s play unfolded. Matt Mallick (99) fell agonisingly close to a much-deserved century, but with the support of Chris Stanes (41) the Eagles won an entertaining affair with three wickets in hand. In the One Day Grade, Silvan will play Yarra Glen in the season decider. Yarra Glen made short work of Wandin, bowling the Bulldogs out for 77 and then cruising to the total with the loss of only two wickets. Premiership favourites Silvan had a tougher

battle against Seville. Eventually, the Blues were bowled out for 160 cutting short their brave fight for a spot in the Grand Final.

Turbocharged evening

Coldstream players observe a minute’s silence. 116868 Picture: KATH GANNAWAY

By KATH GANNAWAY

Silvan and Coldstream made the most of playing to Picture: KATH GANNAWAY a huge crowd. 116868

THERE was only standing room at the Josh Matthews Memorial football practice match between Coldstream and Silvan on Wednesday 12 March. The biggest crowd in years gathered at the Coldstream oval for the ‘Turbo-charged’ evening match that raised $4500 for the Asthma Foundation. Coldstream player Josh, nicknamed Turbo, died last year from a sudden and unexpected asthma attack. He was 17. Both teams lined up for a minute’s silence before the games which

were played in two-quarter blocks of Under 19, Reserves and Seniors. Players Jarrod Healy and John Rafferty paid tribute to the former Under 19 captain, saying Josh had strived to be the best he could and wanted the best for his club since the day he pulled on the blue and white jumper in the Under 12s. “His attitude didn’t only make him a better player, a better person, but it made being around the club a better place,” Jarrod said. Organiser Stacey Adams thanked everyone who contributed, saying it was a great success and a great tribute to Josh.

Commanding Time, ridden by Luke Currie, comes in ahead of Hvasstan to win the Pictures: Bret Tholburt of Slickpix $60,000, 2014 Yarra Valley Cup. 116864

It’s a win, to be sure By KATH GANNAWAY LUKE Currie rode Commanding Time to a win in the Yarra Valley Jack Hirsch memorial Cup at Yarra Glen on Sunday. The race was dedicated to Jack Hirsch, who had been a respected member of the Yarra Glen community for more than 25 years and a successful breed-

er of thoroughbred horses at his Dixons Creek farm. Mr Hirsch died in August last year. Yarra Valley Racing Chief Executive Brett Shambrook said the club was very happy with the day, which was part of a vision to see the club back in its full glory as a fantastic racing and events venue.
