SAM Breeden has set himself some ambitious sporting and career targets. The 16-year-old Upper Yarra Community House VCAL student has his sights set on representing Victoria in indoor and field archery, and on gaining a diploma in disability services. His approach to achieving his goals is about achieving personal bests, and he is well on the way as the Mail discovered when we caught up with Sam at the Yarra Valley Archery Park on the weekend.

YARRA Ranges Council has approved a controversial communications tower in Millgrove, saying community safety has to take priority over concerns about visual impact. Telstra’s proposal to build the 40-metre monopole on the sawmill site in the centre of the town has been challenged over the past 12 months by a number of residents who strongly objected to the tower, saying it would degrade the area. But Telstra argued the tower was needed in Millgrove to provide capacity expansion for the 4G network, and that the sawmill site was the best and most cost-effective location. Resident Brendan Partel spoke passionately at the 25 March council meeting on behalf of the 50 objectors who were supported by a petition of 136 signatures. One submission was received in support of the proposal along with two petitions with a total of 221 signatures. He told the meeting there was a very real concern for the effect the tower would have on the look of the township for both residents and visitors. “Telstra’s policy of visual impact is clearly not the case,” he said. Mr Partel said after the meeting he and other objectors were disappointed with the decision. “I found it a bit disturbing that all the elements of heritage, the Green Wedge zoning and visual impact didn’t seem to matter and that this site was accepted as the only place it could go,” he said. “Comparing a 40-metre tower to telephone poles is a wrong analogy, and that the whole thing is not classed as a visual impact, I find totally bizarre.” Telstra Planning consultant Matt Evans said there was no claim that the tower would not have a visual impact.

“The test to be applied is not to avoid being able to see the facility. We fully acknowledge the top of the facility can be seen from many vantage points, but it will not dominate the landscape,” he said. Telstra Corporate Affairs manager David Imber said they were disappointed at the recommendation to reject the proposal which he said would provide both 3G (for voice) and 4G (for data) services. “Some people may well be having a good experience, but we have to plan for the future and make sure the service is there for existing customers as data increases, and it is doubling,” he said. “We need to make sure people can access communications in emergency situations,” he added. In the end, it was that access to voice and data in an emergency that played most into Cr Jim Child’s alternate recommendation to approve the tower. He acknowledged some visual impact but said he didn’t believe it was a major impact. “If you’re getting a glimpse of these towers against these landscapes when they’re already broken, you don’t notice it all that much,” he said. But in relation to communications he said in 2009 (on and after Black Saturday) the Upper Yarra network had failed requiring a temporary transmitter to be installed. “Many years down the track from 2009 we haven’t seen any improvement in that network and it would be a mistake to treat Black Saturday as a one-off event,” he said. “What I really want to see is that our communities are prepared and state-of-the-art as far as communication is concerned. This will do that,” he said. Councillors Child, Fiona McAllister, Terry Avery, Andy Witlox, Maria McCarthy and Jason Callanan voted to approve the application with Cr Samantha Dunn voting against. 1127797-CA14-14

Cabinet faces question time

in t c n u J a Yar . . . e s u h e Bak al yur loc bakery!

By MELISSA MEEHAN A COMMUNITY forum, with the new State Government Cabinet, will be held in the Yarra Ranges on Monday 14 April. Residents will have a chance to attend the meeting and discuss local and statewide issues with Premier Denis Napthine and his team. Yarra Ranges Council will also brief the Cabinet on key local issues prior to a full Cabinet meeting. Following the Cabinet meeting, the Premier and ministers will attend a number of community events throughout the day in the Yarra Ranges area. “This visit will be the first for the Government’s new

Cabinet and will be a valuable opportunity for members of the community to discuss local matters with ministers and share their views on the future of their community,” Dr Napthine said. “I encourage residents to come along and participate in this important event.” The forum will focus on education, public transport and community facilities and how funding benefits local residents. “We are addressing the growth and infrastructure needs of the eastern region, including the Yarra Ranges, through projects such as the $1.4 million Mooroolbark Station car park upgrade,” Dr Napthine said.

“In education, the Coalition Government has invested over $19.5 million for upgrades and improvements for schools in the Yarra Ranges, including funding for Yarra Hills Secondary College, Wandin Yallock Primary School and Lilydale High School.” In 2013, the Coalition Government provided $650,000 to develop stage one of a new $9.8 million soccer hub in Monbulk. People interested in attending the community forum can register online at www.premier.vic.gov.au/ cabinetvisits or for general inquiries phone 9651 5640.

The colour of caring By JESSE GRAHAM COLDSTREAM’S Primary School community gathered for a special fundraiser last week aiming to raise awareness of epilepsy, with every student showing their support. Wednesday 26 March was Purple Day - a day when people worldwide are asked to wear purple to raise awareness about epilepsy and its effects. Coldstream Primary School students came out in force on Purple Day and Student Welfare Officer Amy Carter said the entire 115-pupil school

latest in many years of Coldstream students taking part. “We have several children within the school community with epilepsy, so it’s very close to us,” she said. “It went wonderfully there was a better outcome than we expected.” Epilepsy is a brain condition, with a main symptom of reoccurring seizures which can be treated by medication or, in severe cases, surgery. The disability affects about 50 million people worldwide. For more information, visit www.purpleday.org.

took part and donned purple clothing. The school managed to raise $180 for the Epilepsy Foundation on the day and Ms Carter said the event was important for teaching children about the disability. “It’s about creating that awareness to other kids so they can see what it’s like on a day-to-day basis,” she said. “It helps with their understanding of the condition and how it can make children with epilepsy feel.” Ms Carter said the day was a great success and that this year’s Purple Day was the

“The theme for 2014 is ‘Our Voice. Our impact’, and is about ensuring that young people have opportunities to speak up about the things that matter to them,” he said. For more information visit www.youthcentral.vic.gov.au/ nyw.

Tipping for a change By JESSE GRAHAM WESBURN’S Waste Transfer Station may have its hours dialled back to four days a week with three weeks left for the public to comment on the proposed change. Yarra Ranges Council is advertising its intention to change the hours at the tip following a decision at its 25 March meeting. The proposed reduction of hours at the Wesburn tip was part of a review of operations for the tip and its Healesville counterpart, with the council advertising its

intention to close the Healesville service. A council officer’s report lists dramatically lower visitation to both the Healesville and Wesburn tips when compared to Coldstream, with 3824, 6619 and 56,753 visitors last year at the respective services. However, despite both Healesville and Wesburn’s attendance being a fraction of Coldstream’s, the report lists the Wesburn tip as around 31 kilometres from Coldstream, emphasising the need for it to continue. Councillor Jim Child voted in favour

of the hours reduction and said that, while it was a hard decision to make for his ward, there had been poor attendance at the tip. “We’re taking a hit, to go back to four days, but I agree with the officer’s report that it is the trend,� he said. “The times I’ve been up there, it’s been quiet.� He said that it was important for the tip to continue running because it services an extremely wide area. “Just looking at the O’Shannassy Ward, it’s the largest ward in the munici-

pality - the other eight wards would fit into it!� he said. Cr Child said it is not yet clear what days the tip would be open as a result of the reduction but he said the days would be chosen to maximise attendance at the tip. As of Tuesday 1 April, three weeks remain to make public submissions on the proposal to reduce hours at the Wesburn tip and to close the Healesville tip. Information on making submissions and the proposed changes will be advertised at the Wesburn tip site and at the council’s Community Link offices.

WARBURTON police are continuing their investigations after two Launching Place girls were injured, one seriously. Senior Constable Tony Pagels of Warburton police said the girls in their late teens were on the back of a ute that was being driven on private property near Matlock on 8 March when they fell off as the ute went around a bend. One of the girls was taken to The Alfred with serious head injuries while the other was taken to Wangaratta Hospital with leg injuries and later released. The 20-year-old driver from Wesburn is assisting police.

The CFA has urged residents to change their smoke alarm batteries along with their clocks as part of the Change Your Clock - Change Your Smoke Alarm Battery campaign on Sunday 6 April.

Time to protect against disease The state T of

affairs Christine Fyffe MP Member for Evelyn

AS A PARENT I know the importance of timely immunisations from preventable diseases not only for our children, but for ourselves and our community. Before starting school, we are reminded of the importance of ensuring

young children are protected against serious contagious diseases. In the school yard, children face an increased risk of coming into contact with someone carrying an infectious disease and passing it onto others. So when we decide to immunise our children, in effect we are also protecting the lives and well being of those around us. Tetanus, whooping cough, diphtheria, polio, measles, mumps and rubella are some of the diseases that have the potential to disable, and in severe cases, kill our children. Although these diseases are rela-

tively rare in Victoria, they are still being brought into the state from people travelling in and out of the country. The best defence against these illnesses is immunisation. As the days are getting cooler and the flu season is upon us, I would also urge people to be immunised against influenza. It is estimated that 2800 Australians die each year either directly from the seasonal flu, complications due to flu, or pneumonia. Pneumonia vaccinations are also important for those who over the age of 65 and who maybe at high risk. Talk to your General Practitioner who will provide

further information and advice. Every year influenza causes widespread illness in the community, so again, immunising yourself and your family also offers protection for the community. The vaccine provides protection from about two weeks after the injection, and lasts for about one year, so even if you were immunised against the flu last year you still need to be protected this winter by having the vaccine again. Your local General Practitioner can provide further information about immunisation programs and the suitable ages to begin vaccinating children for different diseases.

Scores up in lights By JESSE GRAHAM YARRA Glen footballers will be able to see their scores in flashing lights for the first time, after the recent unveiling of their brand-new electronic scoreboard. The scoreboard was unveiled at the Yarra Glen Football and Netball Club grounds at the junior and senior teams season launch on Sunday 23 March, where the team’s year officially began. President of the junior club Andrew Coulson said the scoreboard came about after two of the club’s members - Tereasa Humphrey and Natalie Byron - participated in a radio show contest two years ago,

winning $10,000. The money won through the competition was put towards a potential scoreboard for the club and Mr Coulson said the members had been working hard since then to make it a reality. “Since then, it’s been a twoyear process of researching and studying scoreboards to meet our needs,’ he said. “Through lots of assistance, we’ve been able to get to this point, with a fully functioning electronic scoreboard to benefit all of the clubs.” Mr Coulson said the opening of the scoreboard was stage two in re-

development for the club, with the clubrooms being redeveloped last year and plans for a refreshed football field in the year ahead. He said the final projects he would like to see in the coming years would be new lighting for the football oval and the netball courts. “Once we can get some support and money in order, there’ll be some big changes around the grounds in the next couple of years,” Mr Coulson said. He said that, with more people registering for the season launch and an under-nines football team being established, the club was looking forward to the year at hand.

Young Hart saves Mum By JESSE GRAHAM A QUICK thinking five-yearold received a special award from the Yarra Ranges mayor last week for saving his mum after a major stroke earlier in the year. Dixons Creek Primary School Prep Vincent Hart was given a bravery award by Mayor Fiona McAllister on Friday 28 March during a whole school assembly. His award comes after his mother, Megan, suffered a major stroke on 12 February, and Vincent rushed to her side, following instructions and alerting family members. Making sure that Megan didn’t fall asleep, Vincent talked to her, brought her water and comforted his younger sister, Natalia while his aunty, Marcia, rushed over. Megan was taken to the Box Hill Hospital for treatment, and later transferred to the Peter James Centre for rehabilitation. She has been recovering since then, and was able to attend the event, smiling proudly with other family members as Vincent received his awards. Cr McAllister began her presentation at the school by asking the students their definition of “courage”, “bravery” and “proud”, before explaining: “We’re here to talk about and celebrate something one of you

quick-thinking that his mother is standing here with him today.” Cr McAllister then bestowed a medal, badge and framed award to the beaming five-yearold, as his classmates and family members applauded him.

A HEARTWARMING series of birthday events were held for a long-time Yarra Ranges resident, who celebrated his 90th birthday with friends, family and loved ones. Gerard Ribberink was greeted by around 50 wellwishers at the Upper Yarra RSL on Sunday 23 March, all of whom had gathered to help him mark his milestone for the following day. On his birthday, his son, Robert, took him to a special celebration at the York on Lilydale with more friends to

mark the occasion, before an afternoon tea at Yarra Junction, where Mr Ribberink now resides. His daughter, Rhonda Sumner, said that Mr Ribberink got more than one day to celebrate his birthday, and described all of the events as “heartwarming”. She said that he was overwhelmed when he saw so many people had gathered for his birthday. “He was really excited about it and enjoyed it all,” she said. Mr Ribberink first came

League Committee’s first aim is to boost Warburton by providing the public with necessary amenities with the view of attracting more people to the town. The committee is actively interested and active in promoting the district from a tourist angle as with the diminishing timber resources this is very important, as it concerns the future prosperity of the Upper Yarra. And what a beautiful district it is we live in - a district recognised as one of the most beautiful spots in the state - and the committee is not slow to recognise this fact. The area has extraordinary mountain panoramas, its delightful water vistas, its numerous tourist walks have grand appeal to all tourists.

Obituary

I HAD heard the Healesville tip was to close and then to read about it in the Mountain Views Mail that this was under consideration was unbelievable. A community of some 30,000 people need a tip to dump their rubbish and recycle their paper, metal and cardboard. Years ago, ratepayers got “tip tickets” when they paid their rates but that became too expensive or hard. There are a lot of elderly residents in Healesville who cannot drive to Coldstream. If the council persist with this idea, may the ratepayers sit on the shire’s front steps until they change their mind. George Trumble, Healesville.

AFTER a short illness Mrs. Isabella Paterson passed to her rest on Saturday evening, March 21st aged 62 years. Isabella Mills was born near Warrnambool on August 10 1901 the eldest of seven children. Their father died when they were young and naturally, Isabella took much of the responsibility of helping her mother care for the family. In her early twenties she came to Warburton and found employment in the Warburton Sanitarium and Hospital. While there she met Mr. Don Paterson who then owned a farm in Wesburn. They were married and reared a family in the area.

Painful Accident SYMPATHY is extended to Miss Chapman of ‘Doonside’, Healesville who was so unfortunate as to sustain a broken arm when cranking her car.

IT IS pleasing indeed to note that the introduction of smoking bans which will come into force on the 1 April will help to protect youngsters from the effects of second hand cigarette smoke. I thank everyone who provided valuable input to this important reform, introduced by the Coalition Government, which means that as well as smoking bans at children’s playgrounds, bans will be extended to public sporting venues during underage events and skate parks. Smoking will be prohibited at or within a 10-metre radius of outdoor children’s playground equipment and skate parks that are open to the public. I am proud to be part of a government that leads the way in creating smoke-free environments where children and adolescents can enjoy healthy recreational activities. Cindy McLeish MP, State Member of Parliament.

It’s our survival too WE LIVE in a changing world; a world with a burgeoning human population that is consuming more and more of the planet’s precious natural resources. All living things eventually will suffer unless there is a radical change in human behaviour. The science tells us that we are driving Victoria’s faunal emblem, the endangered endemic Leadbeater’s possum, to imminent extinction by logging Central Highland’s eucalypt forests by removing potential habitat. This delightful marsupial requires extensive forest areas that are aged well over 100 years. With a logging cycle of some 80 years in Victoria we are depriving our state emblem of life. Under the present circumstances, humans have more survival options than this possum which is teetering on the very edge.

It is not a case of putting the possum’s survival before that of humans, but rather creating an accepted philosophy and objective for all animals to live in harmony with each other and the natural environment. Leadbeater’s possum cannot afford to compromise in its present predicament so it is incumbent on we humans to change and adapt. As the human population escalates, can this planet afford for our species to pursue our affluent lifestyles at the expense of other species? Why do we need to continually cut down these magnificent native forests when they provide many more benefits as mature forests? Ian Whitford, Steels Creek.

Labor needs to speak up THE proposed disposal of Swinburne Lilydale including the University and TAFE is a terrible opportunity lost for future generations of students in the outer east. Does the Napthine Goverment have no concern for the future of our youth, how are they they going to access other education facilities without a car. I spent many years going to Swinburne at Hawthorn after work some 30 years ago, it was not easy, today it would be hopeless with the large increase in traffic. Denis Napthine has just announced a $100 million freebie to public transport users. If the state cannot afford to continue TAFE education in the outer east then it definitely cannot afford to give away $100 million to public transport users when the system is already overcrowded and unable to cope with the current usage. If elected, Labor needs to state quite clearly that it will compulsory acquire the site if it is sold off to a third party. Bruce Johnson, Silvan.

Homeward bound AS A responsible pet owner of both dogs and a cat, I can see benefits of the 24 hour curfew Yarra Ranges Council are introducing. However, will they offer a discount or renege mandatory cat registration? Once a cat is confined to an owner’s property - why should a cat be registered at all? I can understand dogs being registered, (they get taken on outings and walks). Then what use is the monetary payment to register a home bound cat to council other than revenue raising? Suzanne Brendel, Yarra Junction.

school, the Department of Education and the council will review the joint use agreement for the pool and the school’s community centre, along with undertaking an audit of practices at the pool. Healesville High School principal George Perini said he was very pleased with the outcome of the council meeting, and would work with the council to develop a long-term agreement for the pool. Mr Perini could not confirm what the pool’s opening hours would be once the funding comes through, as the school could not afford to let the pool operate at a deficit, but said the school aimed to restore some of the slashed hours. “We will try and restore some early morning swimming and other parts of the program that have been cut back,” he said. “Whether they’re going to be exactly the same (as Healesville High School principal George Perini said he before the cuts), I can’t say was pleased with the approved funding for the pool. 117639 Picture: JESSE GRAHAM at this moment.” Mr Perini thanked Cr cent weeks, she had received ville, and reviewing the Yarra McAllister for her support of the pool’s campaign and over 100 emails regarding the Ranges Aquatic Strategy. community members for pool.

By JESSE GRAHAM HEALESVILLE’S indoor pool has been saved for the time being, with Yarra Ranges Council unanimously rallying behind the stricken service and approving muchneeded funding. At the end of the Yarra Ranges Council’s 25 March meeting, mayor Fiona McAllister raised an urgent motion regarding the funding of the Jack Hort Memorial Pool. The pool, which is run by the Healesville High School, has been in danger of closing, dramatically reducing opening hours due to a $40,000 per year deficit. Cr McAllister’s motion was for the council to increase its annual contribution to the pool from $10,000 to $40,000 for the year, staving off a closure for the time being. She said that, with 43,000 people visiting the pool annually, the Jack Hort Memorial Pool was in the top three most used pools in the shire and urged for the councillors to support the service. The motion was unanimously passed by the councillors, and Cr McAllister said that the long-term solution for the pool’s funding would come back to council later this year. In the meantime, the

A GROUP of Yarra Valley health professionals has launched a project that aims to fulfil an innate need that people, young and old, to keep warm as winter rolls in. The team at Yarra Valley Innate Chiropractic in Yarra Junction and Yarra Glen are calling on people to check out their coats and donate them throughout April and May to others who may be in need of a bit of warmth. “We were just thinking about our community as winter is coming in and that there are probably a lot of people out there who don’t have coats and can’t afford to buy one, either second-hand or new,” said Kerry Siddle who works at the Yarra Junction practice. “You hear of people sleeping

rough, and we thought it was something we could all do to help out.” The Innate team has been spreading the word among their clients, but say they want to get the whole valley on board with their coat drive so anyone of any age who needs a coat this winter will have one. “Any coats that people have that are clean and re-usable, anything with a bit of warmth, we would love to have them,” Kerry said. The coats will be collected by the Innate Chiropractic team and distributed by welfare organisations across the Yarra Valley. Drop off points are at Yarra Valley Innate Chiropractic at 2380 Warburton Highway, Yarra Junction and 2 Bell Street Yarra Glen and Redwood Community Centre at 3505 Warburton Highway in Warburton.

Fun for dinner By JODIE SYMONDS IT’S food and fund-raising for Multiple Sclerosis in a Big Dinner Party. Mount Evelyn resident Catherine Hanley is hosting the event next month to raise $1500 to spread awareness for MS. Ms Hanley’s sister Anne Marie was diagnosed with the incurable neurological condition eight years ago at age 36. The disease affects the brain, spinal cord and can cause irreparable damage to the victim. The Big Dinner Party is aimed at raising money to support those suffering with MS as well as helping others read possible symptoms of the disease. “Our knowledge of MS began when Anne Marie’s vision was becoming gradually impaired, balance issues, fatigue and stiffening of her hands,” Ms Hanley said. “Having someone so close to me diagnosed with MS really inspired me to get involved with fund-raising for a cure,” “I heard about the Big Dinner Party and saw it as an opportunity to support my sister and to help raise funds for the cause,” she said. Ms Hanley is hosting her party as an ‘InHouse Progressive Dinner’ to encourage guests to mingle by moving tables after each course.

Public input for health By JESSE GRAHAM PLANS are afoot to consult Healesville residents about the hospital expansion proposal even as a community campaign assesses the future and growth of the service. Eastern Health’s chief of Clinical and Site Operations for the Yarra Ranges Lisa Lynch told the Mail that services were already increasing at the hospital as a result of last year’s $7.8 million funding. Ms Lynch said there was now more capacity for general surgery, endoscopy and gynaecology at the hospital, with seven new theatre lists. In terms of physical expansion, she said Eastern Health had contact-

ed architects and engineers to look at and assess the current site. She said the organisation had already had consultation with stakeholders in the hospital about the progress, including the Save Healesville Hospital Action Group (SHHAG). Independent consultants will soon be advising Eastern Health about how to consult with the community on the expansion. SHHAG chair Fiona McAllister said the group had told Eastern Health they want a voice in the expansion discussions and that SHHAG was looking for consultants to undertake a business case study on the hospital. The case study, which was fund-

ed through community and government donations, will assess what is the best way forward for the hospital - through Eastern Health or as an independent rural health service. “The question still hanging over our head is: will we be better off?” Ms McAllister said. She praised the expansion to services, but emphasised that birthing services were SHHAG’s priority to return to the hospital. “It’s great that Eastern Health are investing and it’s great that we’ve got a full suite of services back, but it’s what hasn’t returned that is the real concern,” Ms McAllister said. Ms Lynch said that, through the hospital’s expansion, provisions will be made for a birthing suite,

which will be used for other purposes, but could be converted if maternity returns. “The expansion will be futureproof,” she said. “We’re preparing for that in the future, but there needs to be demand in the community and we need to be able to provide safe clinical care and a mix of skilled staff to keep mums and bubs safe.” Under the current plans for the Healesville Hospital’s expansion, a new operating theatre will be constructed, and renal dialysis services will be added, which will add to a total 30 per cent increase in services.

More care through hair A HEALESVILLE teenager has offered her hair to help cancer-afflicted women, through a program that turns lopped-off ponytails into wigs for those undertaking chemo. Molly Ilsley chopped off around 40 centimetres of hair on Thursday 20 March to donate to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign, which provides free real-hair wigs to women affected by cancer. The campaign aims to raise 10,000 ponytails of donated hair, which will be sent in and turned into wigs. Molly said she was inspired to take part in the campaign after a close family member was diagnosed with terminal cancer. “I’m doing this for every woman that has suffered and lost hair,” she said. “Every woman should have a head of hair that they love.”

Molly said she had maintained her long hair from Year 9 around six years ago - but said her hair had not been classified as “short” since her kindergarten years. Before the final chop at Healesville’s Mynx Hair Design, Molly said she was very nervous and, though a tear or two was shed through the process, she came through with around seven ponytails to donate. The ponytails were complemented by $450 raised through her parents’ workplaces that will be donated directly to the Cancer Council. As of Friday 28 March, the Beautiful Lengths campaign had received 9844 donated ponytails, though the figure is updated fortnightly. For more information on the Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign, visit www. beautifullengths.com.au. – Jesse Graham

Council course on track By KATH GANNAWAY YARRA Ranges has released its midyear report tracking its performance in the first half of 2013/14. The report, endorsed at Yarra Ranges Council’s meeting on 25 March, covers areas including engagement with communities, infrastructure, the environment, economy, agriculture and tourism, the overall performance

of the organisation and a financial overview. It summarises key achievements against commitments set out in the Council Plan 2013-2017 and performance against key performance indicators (KPIs). Broadly, the reports shows Council Plan actions in relation to the five strategic objectives as being pretty much on target with variances in actual and

target performance of around 2 to 4 per cent. Major infrastructure targets included the Healesville Reconciliation Centre for Families and Children and the Pinks Reserve Regional Netball Facility which were on schedule. Footpath delivery was on schedule with work on Riversdale Road Yarra Junction and Don Road, Don Valley already commenced. Actions around simplifying and

improving transparency of the Yarra Ranges Planning Scheme were also rated as being on schedule. Highlights of the Active and Engaged Communities included adoption of the 2013-2017 Health and Wellbeing Strategy, the development of a draft Equity, Access and Inclusion Strategy and the designation of Community Refuges at East Warburton and Ferny Creek along with the addition

of four Neighbourhood Safer Places across shire. The half-year report is delivered in response to community feedback that there was a need to provide more regular reporting on the council’s performance. The report follows a similar format to the Annual Report and is available to the public at the council’s community links and on their website www.yarraranges.vic.gov.au .

Stakeholders map out plan HEALESVILLE stakeholders met to discuss the future of the town last week, with a river of ideas flowing through to create a draft Structure Plan. Around 70 community members were present at the Wednesday 26 March meeting at Healesville’s Memo Hall, and were asked to discuss how Healesville would look and feel in 20 years’ time. The results were as varied as the people who attended the meeting, and each table focused on a different aspect of the town, from environment through to tourism. Each of the tables, focusing on their particular field, listed challenges that were presented when looking at the town’s long-term future, and then discussed potential solutions. The large group then reconvened and listed their

major ideas, before splitting up to discuss them in more detail. One of the major ideas that were brought up repeatedly was the need for a railway link through to Lilydale from Healesville, and many wanted to contain the outward spread of the town. An idea echoed around the tables was the need for a fully-functioning hospital with an emergency department, while another was having fully-serviced residential streets that would be sealed, have drainage and footpaths. The results of the meeting will help shape a draft Structure Plan, which will be put out to the public around September, with an aim to release the final plan by end 2014. Yarra Ranges mayor Fiona McAllister said the meeting was an opportunity for community members to gather and discuss what they

would like to see in Healesville’s future. “This isn’t just about how high buildings can be ... it’s much broader than that,” Cr McAllister who represents Ryrie Ward said. “In many ways, it’s our vision for what Healesville will be like in 20, 40, 50 years.” She said the discussion process had taken place with meetings, discussion papers, submissions, emails and conversations, and last week’s meeting was the next step in ensuring the plan reflected the community’s wishes. What do you think Healesville should look and feel like in 20 years’ time? Is there anything you would like to see differently, or things you would like to see stay the same? Write a letter to the editor at editor@yvnews. com.au or at PO Box 470, Healesville, 3777.

come and borrow a ‘Living Book’, a special ‘Heritage Race Day’ and more. Why not get your group or organisation together, or even just a ‘bunch of friends’ and join in the fun? Have you got any photographs, pieces of film, historical data, books or anything relating to our great history? The Healesville 150 Steering Committee and our fantastic historical society would love to hear from you. Watch this space each week, as we provide ‘up to the minute’ information on upcoming events, celebrations, ideas and thoughts on how YOU can be involved. Events are right throughout the year, and in November there will be a ‘blockbuster’ fortnight of ‘back to back’ celebrations that everybody can be involved in. Contact the steering committee on: h150@live.com.au or visit our rapidly expanding website at www.healesville150.org

By KATH GANNAWAY THE countdown is on to Healesville’s big 150th Birthday bash in November. And with 150 years to celebrate, there is a push to make this event a year-long, whole of community celebration. The scene was set when more than 70 people met at The Memo in August last year to brainstorm what a 2014 celebration might look like. A mosaic of post-it notes revealed plenty of exciting ideas. A parade was a given. There was talk of fireworks, a 150th Ball, sporting events, arts projects, events re-creating Healesville’s history, a music festival and much, much more. Community 3777 threw out the challenge on the night for the whole town to be involved. “It’s very important that the whole town feels that they are part of this,” 3777 chair Kath Holton said and a look over the steadily growing calendar of events indicates that

Projecting what the 150 film project might deliver, Brian Luscombe, Keith Wade, Merran Macs and Sheryl Allen found inspiration in the old ticket box at The Picture: JESSE GRAHAM Memo. 117830 that message is on target (but with room for more). Groups such as the Healesville Chamber of Commerce, the Yarra Valley Film Society, Healesville Football Club, the Yarra Valley Tourist Railway and the Healesville Amateur Racing Club are just a handful of local organisations who have thrown their individual hats into the mix. There are more, and the plan is that as momentum and excitement continues to

build, there will be more and more groups celebrating 150 years of living history. The Coranderrk Festival set the ball rolling in March, celebrating and commemorating Healesville’s Indigenous heritage with a festival of music, dance and culture for the whole community. On 11 March history boards were launched at the Badger Creek Old School Building that tell the story not only of the school, but reflect

on one of Healesville’s outlying communities and Badger’s part in the bigger picture. Between 8 and 23 November there will be an explosion of events, activities and exhibitions showcasing the culture, lifestyle, landscape, people and talents of the Healesville community. Other activities on the calendar to date are the Yarra Valley Open Studios in September and the Healesville Heritage Ball on 7 November. The Yarra Valley Film Society and Golden Watters are looking to run a film event and are seeking historic footage from Healesville’s history along with photos, movies and stories from which to create a 150th film. To find out more, to get involved, to get inspired go along to the Healesville150 community workshop at the Healesville Senior Citizens Hall at 7pm this Thursday, 3 April.

Celebrates

1864 - 2014

From humble beginnings By JESSE GRAHAM

Picture: HEALESVILLE AND DISTRICT HISTORICAL SOCIETY Left: Healesville in 2014, bustling with traffic and tourists - a far cry from its 1867 counterpart. 117824 Picture: JESSE GRAHAM Nicholson streets in 1865. By 1866, there were around 30 businesses along Nicholson Street, which most people refer to as Maroondah Highway or main street. One of the most common sights in the main street is the Grand Hotel, which is one of the town’s oldest buildings, erected in 1888.

The building replaced the Royal Mail Hotel, which had a series of names in its history. Starting as the Yorkshire Arms in 1864, the hotel was purchased by John Morrison in later years and renamed the Glasgow Arms, before being purchased by Adolphus Edgcumbe in 1885 - he named it the Edgcumbe’s

However, the facade of the building was slightly different, with original iron lacework on the verandah and towers replaced by a portico in 1932.

THE main street of Healesville has changed dramatically in the last 150 years and, like the town, has become modern and unrecognisable when compared to its beginning, with some exceptions. Healesville as a town was surveyed in 1864, as a settlement on the path to the goldfields in Jamieson, Enoch’s Point and Gaffney’s Creek, though it may not have existed in its current state at all. According to the Healesville and District Historical Society’s book Images of Time Volume 1, a road to the goldfields was to be set up for travellers and their carts. Numerous exploring parties favoured a route in a similar vein to the current Reefton Spur Road, but bad country necessitated the route from Healesville to Marysville and beyond. However, the town did not receive its name because of the high hills that ringed it, but was named after Richard Heales, a leader of the Victorian assembly in 1860 and member of the Melbourne City Council. Heales passed away in 1864, and as a sign of respect and grief, the government named Healesville after the man. A medal bearing his image was even distributed to all Healesville residents at the town’s centenary in 1964. The newly-named Healesville was surveyed by George McDonald in 1864, and land sales took place the following year - two buildings were erected on the corner of Church and

tablished in 1865, was removed in part and relocated for the construction of the current Healesville Hotel in 1912. As can be seen by the town’s history, Healesville quickly flourished from its humble beginnings and grew to become the town rated as a mustsee tourist destination on a world-wide scale.

Marilyn’s “little retirement project”, the Patchwork Teahouse in Warburton very quickly took on a life of its own and for the past 12 years has been a centre for quilters and a full-time job for Marilyn. Marilyn said the convention, the largest in the Southern Hemisphere, is one of few events that draws her away from the unique patchwork/cafe business. “I have very little time away from the teahouse, however, I always make an exception for the AQC,” she said explaining that the attraction for her is that it is totally dedicated to quilting. “It’s quilts and more quilts,

which is obviously where my passion lies,” she said. The show is also an opportunity for show off to the quilting world the extraordinary creative talent that is part of the everyday experience at Warburton. Five of the Patchwork Teahouse’s favourite designers, Liz Stanway from Mount Evelyn, Libby Richardson from Kilsyth, Lisa Cantlay from Mooroolbark, Annmarie Campbell from Ringwood and Melissa Grant from Ferntree Gully, will be joining Marilyn at the show with new designs created especially for the exhibit. Marilyn said one of the pleasures of the annual trip ‘down the line’ is the opportunity to meet face-to-face with her internet customers who come from interstate for the convention. The AQC is at The Royal Exhibition Buildings from 10 to 13

WHAT do you love about the Yarra Ranges’ environment? That will be the question put to residents as part of a storytelling session taking place on Wednesday 9 April in Warburton, as part of a special arts project. The Tall Trees and Tributaries project aims to create performance art, artworks and films for a presentation next year at Federation Square and Birrarung Marr. Around 20 local artists are taking part in the project, which has a focus on the forests surrounding Warburton, Toolangi and the Dandenong Ranges and involves five days of art workshops and excursions. The last day of the workshops will be an afternoon session at the Upper Yarra Arts Centre, where community members can discuss their favourite aspects of the local environment with the artists, or stories regarding local forests. The community session will begin at 2.30pm, and residents speaking at the session must be willing to be filmed for submission into the project. Member of the organising group Jeminah Reidy said the artists involved all have a passion for performance art and instillations, along with the environment in the Yarra Ranges. She said that environmentalists, Aboriginal historians, scientists and zoologists will all meet with the artists involved in the project. For more information, or to make a booking for the storytelling session, call Jeminah Reidy on 0414 419 182, or visit www.scenesontheyarra.com.

Society celebrates the big three-oh By KATH GANNAWAY CRANK-UP, the annual celebration of Upper Yarra history and heritage, is 30 years old this year and it promises to be a celebration to remember. Staged by the Upper Yarra Valley Historical Society at the history-rich Upper Yarra Museum at Yarra Junction, Crank-Up will be held over the weekend of 5 and 6 April. The exciting woodchop competition, the noise and clanking

of engines of all shapes and sizes, stalls, displays, demonstrations, draught horses, rides, the mesmerising action at the blacksmiths’ forge, books, the new children’s playground, food and refreshments are just a few highlights. The Museum folk aim to add a new element to every Crank-Up and this year the focus is on the commemoration of World War I and the original Anzacs through an out-

standing military exhibition, ‘Upper Yarra Anzacs - Home Front 19141919’. Activities for children will be highlighted this year and, along with the opportunity to explore the innovative new playground installed last year, there will be plenty to see and do for all ages. Crank-Up will run from 10am to 4pm with the ‘heritage’ admission fee of just $10 (five quid in the old

vernacular) and a gold-coin admission for children. Proceeds are reinvested in the museum. The hard-working Society members are looking for volunteers to join them on the day to help make their 30th birthday event a fitting celebration of what has been achieved over three decades - and, of course, to have some fun. Phone Tom on 0427 707 730 if you can help.

AS ROMANTIC comedies go, Cuban Fury isn’t very funny or focused. But it’s still an enjoyable enough movie about finding lost passion, with an affable protagonist and fantastic dance scenes. Nick Frost stars as Bruce Garrett, a former teen salsa champion who is now overweight and washed-up 20 years later. But his love for dance is rekindled when he meets his beautiful new boss Julia (Rashida Jones). Cuban Fury is much better than Silver Linings Playbook, the Oscar-winning dance centric movie of 2012, as the hero and the love interest are both likeable characters.

However, most of the elements in Cuban Fury don’t fit together well. Frost and Jones have endearing chemistry, but Jones has

too little screen-time to make much of an impression. The film has themes of tough love and not letting the world crush your ambitions, but the comedy can get very meanspirited, especially from the despicable villain, Bruce’s smarmy colleague Drew (Chris O’Dowd). The dance sequences are dazzling spectacles (there is even a cool dance fight scene of sorts) and the visual design is breathtaking, but the camera is often either too close or obstructed by other dancers to properly show Frost’s moves. So, Cuban Fury is a film of sustained hits and misses, but it’s still worth a watch when it comes out on DVD. - Seth Hynes

A regional partnership with the TAC and the Victorian Government.

Mistakes can be fatal By KATH GANNAWAY GRAEME Rust probably knows the pitfalls of riding on Yarra Ranges’ popular scenic motorbike routes better than most. As a member of Yarra Ranges Highway Patrol the Leading Senior Constable had ridden off-road before joining the force. He got his on-road licence as an officer when he was 19 years old and joined the then Traffic Operations Group in 1985. His credentials established, Graeme Rust would be a handy person for any bike rider to have a chat to ... without the blue and red flashing lights - ambulance or police! In addition to pursuit riding, which requires additional skills probably not recommended for recreational riders, police training included VIP escort work where one of the key lessons was about riding in a group. That’s experience many of the motocycle riders pouring into the Yarra Ranges each weekend could relate to, and learn from. Leading Sen Const Rust says there are always dangers associated with riding in a group. “It’s about making sure everyone’s on the same page and you’re not going to do something that puts yourself or someone else at risk,” he said. “The one big danger (in riding in a group) is when a friend asks ‘can I have a go on your bike’ and they’re not aware of the different capabilities and how a bike handles slightly differently.” Leading Sen Const Rust can draw on an experience on the Yarra Ranges roads for just about every conceivable situation. “I’ve been to a collision where that happened,” he says. “A group of 120odd riders and at the half-way mark two decided to change bikes. “Within 5km down the road they came into the first bend; the first one came down and the other following too close came down next, with them both taken away by ambulance,” he said “The first one came to grief because he wasn’t fully aware of the motorcycle he was riding and the second one because he was too close to the vehicle in front. A fatal flaw.” When you’re on two wheels there

Leading Senior Constable Graeme Rust knows the importance of safe driving on the roads. are a whole lot of things that come into play between the way different bikes ride and tyres are crucial, he said. “Under-inflated and they react one way, over-inflate them and they react another way. “If you vary from the recommendations set by the manufacturers for certain types of tyres, the bike will handle differently, even if it’s the same bike.” Even when the rider is right up with the tyre pressure, there are times when a bit more attention to detail would make life a lot safer for riders and a lot less frustrating for police. “A lot of bike riders are aware of these things, but I stopped a guy riding with a group of around 12 people at Cumberland Junction near Marysville who told me he’d stopped at a service station on the way up and checked his tyre pressures,” Leading Sen Const Rust said. “Have a look at this tyre ... see how the steel belt is showing through?” he

says recalling the conversation. “He said he didn’t even look at that. “When you’re on two wheels and don’t have a shell around you to protect you, you have to rely on (checking) these things to keep you vertical and your tyres are the first contact point with the ground. They have to be right,” he said. The second point of contact is often skin, which means protective clothing is vital for all riders. Wearing appropriate clothing was something the TAC and Victorian Motorcycle Advisory Group push. But, apart from the helmet, there are no legal requirements to wear sensible clothing that at best could save riders from a nasty rash, at worst skin and flesh scraped to the bone on gravel. Leading Sen Const Rust said that after nearly 30 years on the road, he can still be amazed at the sight of motorcyclists riding on a hot day in sneakers, shorts and a T-shirt - and helmet.

“They may feel that their skills are good enough to keep them upright, but it only takes an oil spot on the road and you don’t have that cohesion between your tyres and the bitumen surface and you’re skating on ice,” he said. “Fall off, and if you don’t have the appropriate gear on, you will be down to skin and bone.” And what about helmet cameras? Leading Sen Const Rust says noone really knows how having a camera stuck on the side of a helmet will effect it under the ultimate pressure. “Helmets are tested in a certain manner and when you start adding things, like a camera, you don’t know what it’s going to do if you hit the road; will it bounce the head in a different direction and snap your neck? We don’t know,” he said. Bottom line is they’re not legal and police know it. When it comes to GPS devices,

Picture: MELISSA MEEHAN they are legal, but come with a warning - exercise a bit of common sense. “With motorcycles, where you look is where you go,” he said. “If you’re on a straight road and you glance down you shouldn’t have a problem. If you’re banked over and trying to negotiate a bend and you want to have a look at your GPS then that’s probably a bit of a fatal flaw.” Most motorcycles have an audio capability, but essentially, multi-tasking on a bend, on a motorbike, isn’t clever - whether you’re male or female. His top tips for riders are: “Don’t ride beyond your capabilities, or those of your bike, and always have good observations. Check the front, sides and back, keep an eye on your mirrors and make sure you do head checks”. Recommended reading: VicRoads. www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/Home/ SafetyAndRules/SaferRiders/Motorcyclists

Wheels turn for charity By JESSE GRAHAM SWATHES of primary school students wheeled out to Dixons Creek last week for a fund-raiser helping to donate wheelchairs to kids overseas. Around 170 children from Dixons Creek, Toolangi, Chum Creek and Christmas Hills primary schools took part in the fund-raising event, which saw students push one another around an area of the Dixons Creek Reserve. Many students were sponsored according to the number of laps they completed, and different class groups took turns in half-hour jaunts in the wheelchairs. The money raised from the event will be donated to Wheelchairs for Kids, which assembles wheelchairs and ships them to developing countries. There was the occasional spill on the day, as a wayward wheelchair knocked over a traffic cone, and the odd instance of overtaking - and tailgating - but the mood was happy as the chairs made their rounds. Wheelchairs for Kids member Russell Hayes said a new wheelchair will last a child from the age of four through to their 16th birthday, and that each cost around $150 to make. He said the fund-raising events gave the school children a lesson in compassion, and gave children overseas a much-needed helping hand. “There are a lot of worthy causes right here in Australia, but this can change a life altogether and get a kid to school,” Mr Hayes said. The event was organised by Heales-

ville and Wandin Rotary groups, who also cooked lunch for the students on the day. The final amount of money has yet been finalised, but Mr Hayes said some children had raised enough for a wheelchair - with money towards others - on their own. After taking part in the wheelchair laps, students took part in a footy clinic with AFL representatives and took a well-earned break with a sausage in hand, cooked by Rotary members. Australian Paralympian Bruno Moretti also appeared at the event, to talk to the students about his sporting career. For more information on Wheelchairs for Kids, or to donate, visit www.wheelchairsforkids.org

Link between hearing loss and dementia DETERIORATING hearing makes it increasingly difficult for us to converse with others. People mishear things with greater frequency and have to keep asking others to repeat things. All this eats away at self-confidence and can have a negative impact on general well-being and the quality of life as a whole. But can hearing loss increase your chances of developing dementia? Research by the John Hopkins School of Medicine showed a strong association between hearing loss and both the earlier onset and more serious degrees of dementia. Although the reason for the link between the two conditions is un-

known, the investigators suggest that a common pathology may underlie both, or that the strain of decoding sounds over the years may overwhelm the brains of people with hearing loss, leaving them more vulnerable to dementia. They also speculate hearing loss could lead to dementia by making individuals more socially isolated, a known risk factor for dementia and other cognitive disorders. The study, published in the Archives of Neurology, focused on 639 people whose hearing and cognitive abilities were tested between 1990 and 1994. While about a quarter of the volunteers had some hearing loss at the start of the study, none had dementia.

These volunteers were then closely followed with repeat examinations every one to two years, and by 2008, 58 of them had developed dementia. The researchers found participants with hearing loss at the beginning of the study were significantly more likely to develop dementia by the end. Compared with volunteers with normal hearing, those with mild, moderate, and severe hearing loss had twofold, threefold, and fivefold, respectively, the risk of developing dementia over time. Dementia is normally associated with old age, but it is not only senior people who suffer from hearing loss.

Poor hearing is widespread across all age groups. Today, young people increasingly have hearing impairments too - excessively loud music listened to via headphones, at concerts and nightclubs is having a major impact. Construction workers, ambulance drivers, DJs and factory workers: these are all examples of professions where loud noise can have a lasting and damaging impact. Get your hearing tested, get it managed, and enjoy a longer cognitively active life. Contact Vinay Kumar on 5962 1190. Natural Hearing is located at 1/416-420 Moroondah Highway, Healesville.

The Water Compliance Project is underway in Victoria helping rural water users understand their rights and obligations for taking and using water. The Water Compliance Project is Victoria’s implementation of the National Framework for Compliance and Enforcement of water resource management systems. The Framework promotes common water laws and compliance mechanisms across Australia and is funded by the Australian Government through the Water for the Future initiative. Most water users are responsible and abide by the conditions of their water licence. However, each year a small number of users break the law when they take and use rural water from an aquifer, dam, stream, river, creek or irrigation channel. They may take water without an entitlement or licence, they may build an illegal bore or dam, or they might interfere with a water meter. Sometimes these ofences are deliberate, and sometimes they happen because people do not know the law. Water corporations already actively monitor and enforce water compliance in their jurisdictions. The project will provide more resources to extend their compliance monitoring and enforcement capabilities including: • additional monitoring oicers to check that water users are only using the water they are allocated; • more easy-to-understand information about licensing requirements and compliance obligations for existing and potential water users. Monitoring oicers may be more visible in all regions. Amongst other things they will conduct additional inspections of meters on unregulated systems throughout Victoria, identify unlawful take and uses of water and validate license details. There are six water corporations that provide non-urban water supplies to customers who are involved in this project and can advise water users about their rights and responsibilities: - Grampians Wimmera Mallee Water* - Goulburn-Murray Water - Southern Rural Water - Lower Murray Water* - Melbourne Water - Coliban Water* *only applies to rural customers

Sam the man’s target-driven By KATH GANNAWAY TO SAY Sam Breeden is target-driven is more than a dubious pun on his passion for archery. The 16-year-old Warburton VCAL student has two goals in sight - to represent the state, and ultimately Australia in archery, and to get his Diploma of Disability Services and work with disabled youth.

Sam Breeden with his medal tally to date. 117786. Picture: KATH GANNAWAY.

He’s working towards both with equal determination. Sam was introduced to archery when he visited Yarra Valley Archery Park with Warburton Scouts when he was about 12, and says he liked it from the very first arrow he shot. “I did well, but more than anything else, I just really enjoy it,” he said. He started competition archery and in the past three years has competed at state level winning bronze, silver and gold in the indoor category and has gone on to win silver in the short-range outdoor competition in the Cadets 16-18 age group. His medal success in the indoor competition has spurred him on, and he says he is taking a more serious approach to his training. “I’m working towards making the state team this year and then nationals the year after, and am shooting a lot more now,” he said taking a break from a full day’s practice on Sunday. As he puts it, it’s a simple formula just get it right and repeat the same thing every single time. But he admits things don’t always go to plan. “You need to have good form, but you also need a lot of patience for the times when things won’t work, and it can get frustrating,” he said. “It’s a matter of just persevering to

get it right.” School is another challenge for Sam who has been with UYCH Youth Education since Grade 6, graduating from their Cerini Campus after three-and-ahalf years to start VCAL at the Redwood Campus last year. It’s an alternative model that allows him to work at his own pace, and which he says is working for him. His goal is to finish VCAL and go on to study for a Diploma in Disability Studies, a field he is already getting experience in as a volunteer with Melbourne Youth Initiative. He’s worked on six MYI camps as a volunteer. “Seeing the kids and other people at the camps have fun is what I love about it,” said Sam, who will have his own ‘buddy’ to look after for the first time when he does his seventh camp over the school holidays. Archery is usually one of the activities, and Sam’s experience and knowledge of the equipment makes him a popular team-member when it comes time to tackle the bulls-eye at the Yarra Valley Archery Park. Sam doesn’t see either of his goals as a massive challenge. He’s enjoying the journey right now and says it’s just a matter of keeping at it to hit the right targets.

Chelsea Thompson won gold in both the 100m and 200m. 117804

Shooters didn’t ‘buckle’ in shoot By JOHN WOODS A STRONG field of shooters turned out for the Woods Point Gun Club’s March competition for the 13th annual ‘Buckle Shoot’. The Eye Opener was 10 targets Continental Double Barrel Points decision and only Rob Bevis and David Ewert managed the 30/30 maximum score to share the cash prize. The event was the Goulburn River 20T Continental Double Barrel Championship sponsored by Laurie and Jo Poile. Trevor Ewert, Jason West, Bill Forrest and Jason Matthews all managed 20/20 to qualify for the shoot off for the sash. Ewert was an early casualty followed shortly by West. Matthews and Forrest continued with Matthews

eventually emerging as the winner of the Championship Sash, 28/28. Matthews also took the AA Grade prize, 20/20, with Phillip Desmond 2nd, 19/20. Forrest’s 22/22 was enough for the win in A Grade with Trevor Ewert 2nd, 21/22. B grade was won outright by visiting shooter Steve Wozniak, 19/29, Chuck Lay in 2nd, 21/22 after a shootoff with David Ewert. And finally in C Grade, Jason West took the honours, 20/20 from Lauchlan O’Hallaran, 18/20. The main event was the ‘Buckle’ event. The Goulburn 75 target Double Barrel Championship was sponsored by Peter Streuber of Dayton, Ohio, USA and local member, Rob Kirley. Each year Peter Streuber sends from America six beautifully embossed

leather belt buckles for the grade winners, the best junior and the raffle. The main trophy this year was a valuable 1884 American Morgan Silver Dollar that the club had mounted. After 75 targets, Bill Forrest stood the tallest with an excellent 74/75 to win the Championship, the A Grade buckle and the trophy. Phillip Desmond’s 73/75 was enough for the AA Grade buckle, Matthews’s 69/75 giving him 2nd place. Forrest easily won A Grade with Rob Bevis’s 73/75 enough for 2nd place. Dave Hoon’s 72/75 won him the B Grade buckle, David Ewert in 2nd place 69/75. Ron Press won C Grade 70/75, O’Hallaran 2nd, 78/87 after a spirited shoot off with Matt Ewert, 77/87.

Dave Hoon with today’s score was upgraded to A Grade. All in all, a great day’s shooting with a magnificent lunch prepared by

Jo Poile, Jodie Poile and Beth Worth. For any inquiries about the club or clay target shooting please contact John Wood on 9808 2693. The next competition is on Sunday 27 April.

Gear up for the fun of lakeside run By REBECCA BILLS AS THE cross country season is nearing, runners from around the Hills are excited about the upcoming Yarra Ranges Fun Run at Lillydale Lake. Fun run co-ordinator Michael Clarke said there is no charity partner involved in the run and it is purely a fund-raising event for the Yarra Ranges Athletics club. “The club is based at the Yarra Ranges Regional athletics facility in Mount Evelyn and fund-raising will be used to assist with improving facilities and equipment at this venue for all users including schools and the general public,” he said. Events for the whole family on the day include a two and five kilometre walk or run and a 10km run. Mr Clarke said in choosing the location to hold the run, Lillydale Lake was a “no-brainer” as it is

such an iconic running venue in the area. “All courses will be well marked, and will take in the surrounding parklands of the lake including running on grassed areas and the familiar gravel trails,” he said. “Hospital Hill has also been added into each events course.” Middle distance, cross-country coach and club treasurer Jamie Strudley said the event preparations are going well. “At this stage it’s difficult to gauge the number of entrants there will be as usually around 50 to 60 per cent enter on the day,” Mr Clarke said. “We think we are going to hit our target of around 150-200 athletes but it all really depends on the weather - the one thing we don’t have much control over.” Mr Strudley said this is an event where the club wants to show the wider community what

Club cuts back race day risks By JESSE GRAHAM DANGEROUS trees and branches will be removed from Healesville’s Amateur Racing Club Grounds to protect visitors and racers. A $11,550 State Government grant, announced late last month by Seymour MP Cindy McLeish, will enable dangerous trees on the grounds to be identified then removed or heavily pruned. The grant’s funds will be matched by the club, and Ms McLeish congratulated club

officials on their foresight in removing trees before they dropped limbs. As one of the state’s most iconic racing venues, it was important to maintain safety for everyone watching the races, she said. Club Secretary Chris Young said that many of the trees are around 80 years old, and that dropping tree limbs was the “nature of the beast.” He said that cutting tree limbs where possible and removing hazardous trees would

help to increase safety for punters and visitors to the area, while new trees were being grown. Mr Young said the club would look at alternatives and temporary shading structures during busy events, along with relocating trees where possible. Country Racing Victoria CEO Scott Whiteman thanked the Government for its assistance through the grant and said it will not only boost safety, but provide work for locals in identifying and pruning the trees.

Netball grants on offer ANZ has launched ‘Netball Nation’ to encourage communities to participate in the sport and provide funding for muchneeded equipment. The ANZ Netball Championship Season has begun and ANZ has announced it will

continue its sponsorship with the ANZ Championship. Members of the netball community of all ages and skill levels are invited to apply for Netball Nation grants. The grants will go towards uniforms, equipment, net-

Pony pop-up cashes in By KATH GANNAWAY POP-UP dressage rings have provided a solution to meeting new regulations for Lilydale Pony Club. The club has a cross country course and lots of space at its home ground at Yarra Glen and Lilydale Hunt Club in Yering, but needed to upgrade its

dressage arenas when new standards were brought in. Club president Owen Dixon said while the club had great facilities at Yering, it was struggling to get the money it needed to replace the obsolete arenas. He said they approached the Wandin-Seville Bendigo Community Bank who came through with a $2350 grant for two pop-

up arenas. Mr Dixon said the club was delighted to be working closely with the bank, who he said were focused on helping local communities. The Lilydale Club is always looking for new members, of any age, who own their own pony and are keen to join a community-based club.

Ride tackles teen issues COMMUNITIES are being urged to get on their bikes in support of mental illness and Anzac Day. Teen Challenge Victoria works with victims of drug use, alcoholism and life threatening illnesses. CEO of Teen Challenge Victoria Neil Meyer said the chosen date of 25 April represented the struggle of freedom. He said the reflection of Anzac Day was symbolic Teen Challenge Victoria participants with drug-related illnesses go through. “We’ve picked that day specifically to focus on the Anzac

Day spirit,” Mr Meyer said. World War II Veteran Col Hal Oxley will be attending the event as a guest speaker. “I think he’ll be inspiring to people who are in the program as he went to war against odds to persevere,” Mr Meyer said. The Teen Challenge Freedom Ride will commence in Lilydale to Warburton and back. The ride aims to raise money for men and women to enrol into the program and seek lifechanging help. “Most of the people involved in the programs are from families where there has been a

lot of dysfunction,” Mr Meyer said. “It’s not up to the government to do something, it’s up to the community, every little bit helps,” “We’re hoping to raise $100,000 dollars this year, because if everybody puts something in, it would mean so much more could be done,” he said. The Anzac Day ceremony will be held at the Yarra Training Centre, 111 Mangans Rd in Lilydale. For more information, visit teenchallenge.com.au.

LEAVES IN YOUR GUTTERS? Protect your home against fire and flooding Install AllClear Leafguard made from Colorbond® Steel There is a Colorbond® product on the market AllClear Leafguard that can save you all the hassles regarding leaves blocking your gutters and creating a fire hazard.

AllClear Leafguard is made of Colorbond® steel, the same material as your gutters - so it won’t melt in fire or perish and become brittle. It stops embers and burning leaves getting under the roof.

AllClear Leafguard made from Colorbond® steel has many benefits, including protecting and prolonging the life of your gutters.

When there are no leaves on the roof or in the gutter there is nothing to burn so the embers just sit and then go out.

Gone are the days of spending hours of your valuable weekend time up on a ladder cleaning your gutters by hand. AllClear Leafguard will do the job for you. By keeping your gutters clear of leaves, it will stop any overflowing which causes water damage to your home and will ensure gutters last years longer.

Fire prone areas are being urged to get their gutters fitted with metal leafguards to protect against potential bush fires.

AllClear Leafguard is secured under your tile or iron roof and to the front of your guttering. When the Leafguard is in place it cannot be seen from the ground, so it does not ruin the appearance of your roof. AllClear Leafguard is designed especially for the collection of clean water for rain water tanks. The best

way to save our valuable water is to have leaf and debris free gutters to stop the overflow and flooding. The gutters are still able to be flushed and cleaned if necessary to ensure clean and hygienic tank water all year round. The problem of bushfires is always upon us and there is a pressing need for home owners to protect their properties as best they can in the event of fire. One of the ways home owners can be prepared is by ensuring their gutters are free of leaves and debris that could easily catch on fire, leading the flames to the body of your home.

The Australian made AllClear Leafguard has proved extremely successful over the years being recognised as the more superior Leafguard on the market in Victoria, NSW, SA, QLD, WA and TAS. AllClear staff have been trained in all aspects of leaf and gutter problems to help bring this amazing product to you.
