î Ž Teacher honoured to have ex-students’ kids in her class...

Big tick for teach it brings back the minimal memories that are there from such a young age,� she said. “I grew up here then I moved away for about 10 years with my husband but we decided we wanted our children to grow up with space in a leafy environment. “Indiana loves it, she loves all the teachers and other pre-schoolers and has a great rapport with them - we really haven’t had any issues.� Ms Haworth said what has made the past 30 years so wonderful is the friendly nature that the preschool espouses. “It’s a community based centre and is very community minded in all we do,� she said. “Working with the children keeps me young. “I love the funny things children come up with, their delightful senses of humour are just wonderful.� Ms Haworth said over the years, the building housing the preschool has not changed much. “It’s a very old building and it still looks very similar to what it was we’ve only really added on a verandah, some new paths and a sandpit alongside a few other little things,� she said. “Even the actual play rooms are very similar however, in recent years, there has been a set curriculum put in place across Australia. “What that means is what children are taught here is very similar to what they are taught in other states.� Ms Haworth is also a member of the local Rotary Group and spends her time during the Christmas breaks working with Teachers Across Boarders where she trains preschool teachers in Cambodia. On Sunday 27 July form 1pm to 4pm, a lunch and open day is being held at the centre so past and present students can catch up and celebrate Ms Haworth’s achievements. For more information, call Mount Evelyn Memorial Preschool on 9736 2488.

THIRTY years ago Annette Haworth commenced her first class at Mount Evelyn Memorial Preschool. And since that day, she’s taught about 50 students a year. “One thousand five hundred children in Mount Evelyn have gone through the centre in my time,� Ms Haworth said. “It’s an absolute honour to have taught each one of them.� Ms Haworth graduated in 1981 with a diploma of teaching from the Institute of Early Childhood Development, which is now part of Melbourne University. “I worked for a couple of years as a part-time teacher before I started at the Memorial Preschool,� she said. “I always wanted to teach and when my children started school I went to uni full time and trained as a teacher. “I had three children in primary school, I was completing full-time university so I think if I can do that, I can do anything.� Ms Haworth said she has now reached the stage of teaching the children of her former students. “To me, that is an absolute honour that they would bring their children back to me,� she said. Caitlin Liistro is one mother who was taught by Ms Haworth and now has her daughter Indiana in her teaching care. “When we were looking for a preschool for Indiana one of my first options was the Memorial Preschool but I didn’t realise Annette was still there,� she said. “She actually recognised me before I recognised her. “When I saw her it made it an easy choice for us in enrolling our daughter.� Mrs Liistro said because of her own experience she knew that her daughter would be in good hands. “It’s pretty much exactly the same at the preschool, just a few things have slightly changed - you go in and

Back to school, as normal By MELISSA MEEHAN RECESS is over, and classes are back to normal at Morrisons. As Upper Yarra Community House and Morrisons come together, VCAL co-ordinators have ensured a smooth transition for their students. Many are saying that they haven’t noticed any changes and it’s business as usual. Last week students and teachers came together to share their feelings on the matter saying that the rumoured uncertainty hadn’t affected them at all. Councillor Maria McCarthy spoke to students about their experiences, and said it was obvious that everyone was happy with the progress. “The transition has been very smooth,” Cr McCarthy said. “Morrisons is taking new enrolments and everyone seems happy.” VCAL co-ordinator and teacher Mark Hunt said that while UYCH had some different classes and systems, any chang-

es were in the background and didn’t affect students or classes in Mount Evelyn. “From our side of things, our students haven’t noticed any changes,” he said. “For them it’s business as normal.” He said that under UYCH, Morrisons still kept its identity and the two had been able to share ideas, something they had never done before. “For us, at the VCAL program, we have all the same staff and classes,” he said. “The demand is still there and now we have the ability to expand to new scopes, opportunities and ideas.” Yarra Ranges Council Manager, Economic and Community Development Ali Wastie said council staff had been working hard to ensure a smooth transition with the closure of Morrisons and the management of UYCH. She said all buildings linked to Morrisons had been filled, with an announcement on the cafe to come in weeks.

Moving, still proudly local House history by the book By REBECCA BILLS

WE’RE coming together to strengthen our service to the community. A stronger editorial and advertising team will be based in brand new offices in Healesville, staying true to our word that we are proudly local to the Yarra Ranges.

The Mail this week says goodbye to our Mount Evelyn office, but hello to a more cohesive team environment to bring local news to you. This means all Mail Newspaper Group services will be under the one roof, with advertising and editorial con-

tactable on one number, 5957 3700. We are still dedicated to covering and bringing our readers all the local news as it happens and will have staff working in and around the Dandenong Ranges daily.

MOUNT EVELYN residents now have an informative guide to research the history of their properties. An exhibition held last year at the Mount Evelyn Station House on the subject ‘researching your house’ resulted in a great many residents asking the group for the information presented to be in book form. Writer and Mount Evelyn History Group Secretary Karen Phillips says the booklet is an easy guide for residents specific to Mount Evelyn to locate their property’s history. “I’ve divided house research into three topics - researching the land, researching the owners and researching the actual house or other building itself,” she said. “The first part of the book is divided into those three sections and the second parts I’ve put it into practice and researched my own house as an example. “The idea is to direct people to where the information is that is specific to Mount Evelyn.” Ms Phillips said through the research she found her property had connections to the Presbyterian Church and the Morrison family.

Mount Evelyn History Group members Karen Phillips and Paula Herlihy with the new booklet. 120611 Picture: REBECCA BILLS Mount Evelyn History Group President Paula Herlihy said the topic of how to research local property was something she was asked about regularly. She said when the group decided to put the exhibition on display last year, they did not think it would be as popular as it was. Ms Herlihy says she hopes that residents get back to the group with their findings.

“That creates a new slant on history that we didn’t have through having this book,” she said. The Mount Evelyn History group booklet ‘Researching your House in Mount Evelyn’ is available through the Mount Evelyn History Group for $8. For more information or to get a copy, email or visit

“We are not strictly an action group, we are here to take ideas in and find people to make it happen,” he said. “People don’t always understand that about METIC - although we are looking at trying to change that in the future. “We are here to gather ideas in the community and then put people in touch with each other to get it to happen.” Mr Meadth said a town is only as strong as its community support and METIC’s goal is for people to feel at home in Mount Evelyn and want to

contribute to make it a better place. The event will include free face paint, circus activities with Ruccis, drumming with Kofi, sausage sizzle and storytelling so all ages can enjoy the morning. The Have Your Say Day is on Saturday 24 May from 10am to 1pm at Outlook Park, Station House, Wray Crescent, Mount Evelyn.

ABOUT 20 pines trees are set to be removed in the coming months at the Montrose Richards Reserve. Part of the Yarra Ranges Council’s $86,000 rejuvenation plan in March 2013 included the removal of 500 pine trees from the reserve. Walling Ward councillor Len Cox said when the major job was done the contractor could not get machinery into some of the areas where a few pines were standing so they were never removed. “Council staff are planning to remove the remaining pines

which are located at the southern end of the block near Kerr Crescent,” he said. “This block is classed as a bush block and before the clearing commenced two thirds of it were covered in pines, ivy and other weeds. “In the initial cutting we removed nearly 90 per cent of the weeds and we are planning to finish the job of rejuvenated the block over the next three to four years.” Cr Cox said he is continuing to work on securing a conservation covenant from the Trust for Nature to protect the block from future development.

“Its 10 acres of gently sloping land and if you subdivided it to build I would estimate it is worth $10 million,” he said. “It’s a public reserve and that’s the way it should stay and I think the next generation living around here will be very grateful to the council for doing this. “I believe that within 10 years this well be something the community will be very proud of and happy to wander amongst.” Cr Cox said once the trees are removed the council hopes to install new furniture over the coming years.

LILYDALE’S Matthew Calleja has proved that success comes in many different packages when he won the Victorian State Young Achiever of the Year 2014 award earlier this month. The annual Victorian Young Achiever Awards, which this year was held at the Etihad Stadium on Friday 9 May, celebrates young people and their achievements toward improving their communities. Matthew, 24, illustrates an inspiring case of unconventional, yet far-reaching accomplishment. While still a teenager, Matthew left school in year 10 to start a mechanical apprenticeship. Soon realising it was not for him, he began his own home business at age 17, providing high performance Australian car parts online. His business, MRC Performance - Performance Parts and Fabrication, soon developed into a well-known performance shop in Lilydale employing six specialist staff who are now branching out with design services. But Matthew is not just concerned with running a profit. He also provides significant support to local charities, holding regular car events and barbecues at his factory to help raise funds for the local CFA. Minister for Youth Affairs Ryan Smith presented Matthew with the overall award, noting the significant impact his and other young people’s contributions have on the community. “The Victorian Coalition Government is proud to support these awards that remind us that through hard work, dedication and determination, anything can be achieved,” Mr Smith said. More than 100 young Victorians were nominated for their outstanding contribution to the community.


MOUNT EVELYN residents can have their say on the latest community draft plan from the Mount Evelyn Township Planning Night which was held earlier in the year. Billanook Ward councillor and Deputy Mayor Maria McCarthy said the upcoming Have Your Say Day is an opportunity for the Mount Evelyn community to see the draft and make sure what is being presented is their vision for the community. “The draft community plan has brought together all the discussions

that have been held over the past 18 months,” she said. “Council’s role has been to facilitate the process of gathering information and ideas from the Mount Evelyn community. “It is not a council document but will be submitted for acknowledgement once the consultation and feedback process is complete.” METIC chairman Daniel Meadth said the group wants Mount Evelyn residents to take an interest in the document so that a community steps can be put into place to ensure projects are completed.

for electricity in 2020 and up to $1.4 billion each year beyond that. It seems certain that the government will probably abolish the RET (the target is currently for 20 per cent of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energy production to be from renewable sources by 2020) or will reduce it. While this would make some power companies happy, it is not in the interests of the community or the environment. The Renewable Energy Target has encouraged investment in wind farms and solar power, helped provide thousands of jobs and has helped reduce the wholesale price of electricity. There is at least one wind farm project which is waiting on the outcome of the RET review.

Budget’s health constraints hit By JESSE GRAHAM FEARS that low wage earners could forsake their health to save money have been raised in the aftermath of last week’s Federal Budget.

The Federal Budget, which was released on Tuesday 13 May, raises the proposal for residents to pay $7 to their bulk-billing General Practitioner (GP) to help fund a new Medical Research Future Fund. The payments, which will begin on 1 July 2015, will also be paid for out-of-hospital blood tests and diagnostic imaging services, but will be capped at 10 visits per year for concession holders, children under 16 and pensioners. Residents will also pay $5 extra for Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) prescriptions, with concession holders paying an extra 80 cents. Hospitals will also be able to introduce patient contributions for GP-equivalent visits to emergency departments. Healesville Salvation Army Minister Sarah Eldridge said some families’ budgets were stretched so thin that the co-

payment would have a significant impact. “People say that the copayment is only $7, and that it’s only a couple cups of coffee, but, for some families, a cup of coffee is a luxury,” Ms Eldridge said. “While it may be only $7, it’s going to have a significant impact, and some families will choose between paying a bill on time and going to the doctor.” Eastern Melbourne Medicare Local CEO, Kristin Michaels, said the co-payment proposal was causing concern among GPs and raised the possibility of low-income earners forsaking their health to save money. “For some doctors working in some of our outer suburbs, where there is real social economic stress - and we’re not talking about people on enough, just people working and struggling to get by - they don’t want to put people in a position where they have to make a call about not seeing their doctor,” she said. Ms Michaels said that, between the co-payment, petrol to visit a doctor and money for a

script, the cost of seeing a doctor easily builds up for those least able to afford it. “Of the $7 co-payment, $2 would go to the healthcare provider, while $5 would go towards the government’s medical research fund. In his budget address, Treasurer Joe Hockey said the fund would be the biggest in the world by 2020.” Mr Hockey said the $7 copayment proposal was a “modest contribution” towards the healthcare system. “Health services have never been free to taxpayers, so patients are being asked to make a modest contribution towards their cost,” he said. “Australians are always prepared to make a reasonable contribution if they know their money is not wasted - I can think of no more significant benefit from community contributions in health than to invest in cure and discovery research by our people for our people.” The budget and its recommendations must pass the houses of parliament before being officially adopted.

Top courses at a price By JESSE GRAHAM UNIVERSITY debts could deepen and will be paid back earlier under Federal Budget changes, with more autonomy for institutions to deregulate fees. Last week’s Federal Budget outlined a number of changes for the higher education sector, with a reduction in the repayment threshold for university loans and deregulation of university fees. This means that, as of 1 July 2016, students will begin repaying their HECS-HELP debt once they earn over $50,638, a lowering of the threshold from $53,345 in this financial year. The amount of accumulated debt could also be set to rise or fall depending on courses, with university tuition fees set to be deregulated as of 2016. As a result, some highly

sought-after courses from prestigious universities may raise tuition costs to students, while others may lower theirs to compete with other providers. Healesville resident and La Trobe University student Jesse Wilkinson said he had concerns over the deregulation of university fees, which, he believed could discourage students from chasing prestigious courses if prices rise. “If somebody wants to go into medicine, or if they want to go into law, that is a literal investment in the future of the country,” he said. “If people are going to go into that knowing that, as a result of doing what they want to do, they are going to have a higher and more intense debt, it might discourage them.” New Commonwealth Scholarships will be created to provide disadvantaged students with places at universi-

ties, which will be funded by $1 out of every $5 that universities raise in additional revenue from the fee changes. Treasurer Joe Hockey said that deregulating university fees would allow for providers to compete more freely and improve their course quality. Mr Hockey said that, while course fees might rise and fall, access to HECS-HELP would still be free-of-charge to all students, until they earn over the threshold. As part of the changes to the higher education sector, the government will apprentice loans of $20,000, which will be repaid when recipients earn over the HECS-HELP debt threshold of $50,638. The loans replace a current hand-out to apprentices of $5500 for tools over the course of their apprenticeship. For more information on the Federal Budget, visit

Elaine’s contribution to live on By KATH GANNAWAY ONE of Marysville’s most loved and admired residents, Elaine Postlethwaite OAM, has died at the age of 77. Elaine’s story of survival of the 2009 bushfires in Marysville made headlines, but her contribution to the Marysville community, especially the chil-

dren and families, was a long, loving and enduring story for which she will be remembered most. She was a teacher at the primary school for many years and after retirement became a kindergarten teacher. She was the inspiration behind the iconic Rainbow Serpent that was carried on the legs

Letters Budget alternatives MUCH noise has been created about the 2014 Federal Budget. That said, and even assuming that the previous government left the budget in crisis, which it didn’t anyway (more later), there are better ways of raising the revenue base than slugging the lower 70 per cent of income earners to the tune of a five per cent rise, and the higher earners at only 0.3 per cent. That is sixteen times as much of an impost on the lower income earners. Please do the maths. 5 divided by 0.3 =16.6. Here is my challenge to all political parties and suggestions can be seen in detail athttp:// ?page=1&sy=age&kw=lib+mps+fear+madness& pb=all_ffx&dt=selectRange&dr=1month&so=rel evance&sf=text&sf=headline&rc=10&rm=200& sp=nrm&clsPage=1&docID=AGE140503284F2 1FU2HH To precis the suggestions: 1. Tax the money held in banks above $100 billion, at 0.2 per cent (two tenths of one per cent), and that would raise $11b over four years. 2. Tax super earnings equally. That would raise $12b over four years. 3. End income splitting in discretionary trusts. At least or even more - $12b over four years. 4. End capital gains discount. $20b over four years. 5. End negative gearing. Up to $16b over four years. So $71b over four years. In layman’s terms, or for the mathematically challenged, that is 71 thousand million dollars. Gulp! Gina’s wealth to exhaust, by spending the money at a million dollars a day, would take 60 years. Imagine winning

one million dollars in lotto every day for 60 years. Now, major parties; I challenge you to address these legal rorts for people who can afford them. If the taxes collected by government were ploughed back into the economy, think how much infrastructure, social services, research and development, health and education restructure etc could be achieved and dream of a paradise or utopia on earth. Neither of the major parties will touch these impenetrable gold clad “entitlements” for the wealthy. It is not about punishing the rich. How can you really punish the rich when the society we have, actually encourages entrepreneur investment? We as a society and an economy have given the uberrich opportunities (tax breaks, subsidies, lower tax on fossil fuel energy sources, and so on), to easily accrue even more. It is time for them to also put in; do the heavy lifting, in Joe Hockey’s parlance. More later about the inequity of this budget and I admit, there is the need to look at a new social model. But the current budget simply will not address that; and is completely unacceptable in that underclass numbers will be increased and there is no value added if the ill become sicker, the poor become poorer, small business is gradually swallowed up by the massive corporations, read Coles and Woolworths (for which there are no viable alternatives), and society quickly slips down a path the US tea party would want America to go. Graham Answerth, Healesville.

24-hour policing

Chaplains questioned

JUST where are the police in Healesville after dark? Not where the burnouts and rubber are being put down in a majority of the streets and roads in and out of Healesville - that’s for sure. Even the main street is not immune. All these marks on the roads make Healesville look uninviting to visitors. How long will it take before there is a serious accident and someone is hurt or killed before being caught? It would not be hard to monitor the streets that don’t have any burnouts - as there are not too many. Police - clean up Healesville. Sue D’Nim, Healesville.

EDUCATION Week presents a perfect opportunity to open up the dialogue around school chaplains. Recently, Healesville Primary School stated in their weekly newsletter the intention to hire another chaplain under the National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program. The provider of chaplains, ACCESS ministries urges that: “There must be extensive consultation with, and support from, the broader school community, particularly parents, about the demand for and role of a school chaplain.” Unfortunately, due to my close relationship with the school, I do not feel comfortable opposing the decision to continue participation but would like to present some information for the people of Healesville. While participation is not compulsory, Healesville Primary is a secular school. Additionally, the National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program is the subject of an ongoing battle in the High Court, as the Commonwealth desperately attempts to defend a $200+ million taxpayer funded program, a battle it has lost once before. The High Court ruled that the program “exceeded the Commonwealth’s executive spending powers under the constitution”. Furthermore, respected academics have evaluated the content of ACCESS educational services and labelled them “unintelligent rote learning”. So I ask the community to consider this - will Healesville Primary follow in the footsteps of Cranbourne South Primary School principal Joe Kelly, who moved to abolish the program in his school? And with the 2014 budget committing to extending this highly criticised program, is there any scope in the fantastic multi-faith community of Healesville, for a discussion? Name withheld.

Put pussy behind bars RE: “Let Pussy be Free” (Mail, 13 May). THE thing is, Terry, that the native birds and animals around here don’t have a handy “clear plastic bottle of water” to deter cats from mauling them to death. Perhaps you didn’t read the article (The Age, 8 May, “Cats blamed for native species ‘catastrophe’ ”). Chris Johnson of the University of Tasmania, a member of The Australian Centre for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis was quoted in the article as saying that small native animals are facing an extraordinary decline across Northern Australia with the spread of feral cats largely to blame. In Kakadu National Park alone, the numbers of such animals, including bandicoots, quolls and tree rats has crashed by 90 per cent in two decades. About 100 marsupial species across the continent are at risk of extinction, adding to the urgent need to understand and reverse the sudden dive in northern species numbers. Also maybe you have forgotten the recent article in the Mail about the vets at Healesville Sanctuary trying to save birds which had been rescued from the jaws of cats. This is why cats need to be confined to backyards. Just do the right thing, Terry, pussy will get used to it. John Blair, Warburton.

Council takes all on board

Engines join fleet By JESSE GRAHAM THE Yarra Valley Railway received two new additions to its fleet last week, with two engines being craned into the yard in a huge operation on Wednesday. Members of the Yarra Valley Railway (YVR) gathered at the Healesville railway station on Wednesday 14 May for the delivery of the two new engines. A Y Class and a T Class Victorian Railways Diesel-Electric broad gauge locomotive were both trucked down to the station with their bogies, and lifted onto the tracks by two cranes. Setting up the cranes on the day was a laborious task, with both carefully weighted to handle the weight of the massive engines - the Y Class weighs 65 tonnes, while the T Class weighs 70 tonnes. Though the cranes began to set up at 10am, the first engine was laid carefully onto its bogies just after noon, while the other was driven down. YVR president Brett Morton said the railway had acquired the Y Class engine at a liquidation sale, while the T Class engine had been owned by the railway, but leased out for use. He said the Y Class engine was perfect for the railway, which will also be using a steam engine when it opens around 2016-2017. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the lightest, smallest, fuelefficient engine and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfect for a branch line - it was made for a branch line railway like ours,â&#x20AC;? Mr Morton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things like this donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come up very often, so we had a shot at it and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve won it.â&#x20AC;? Mr Morton said he was excited

Local residents and passers-by also stopped by the station to watch the cranes lower the engines, while friends and members of the railway

snapped away on cameras during the lowering. Falling in line with the railwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heritage status in town, both of the engines craned in on the Wednesday were over 50 years old, with the T Class train built in 1955 and the Y Class built in 1963.

YARRA Ranges Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Equity, Access and Inclusion Strategy was endorsed at the council meeting on 13 May. The strategy had been exhibited publicly for comment and will now guide the council for the next 10 years. Mayor Fiona McAllister said the Strategy included disabled people much more and was something the council could refer back to in all they did. She praised the work of the Social and Economic Development department for their work, and the direction the Strategy gives council, but spoke with reservation about the reality and depth of understanding of what it means to be truly inclusive. Refering to requirements under the Victorian Disabilities Act around reducing barriers and achieving tangible changes in attitudes and practices that discriminate against people with a disability, Cr McAllister said she was not convinced that change was a reality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would love to say we are miles ahead after having these conversations for decades now, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why this document and all the work we are doing is so important,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am still not convinced that we have achieved tangible changes in attitudes and practices. I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting better with the rhetoric, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not convinced we are getting better at actually achieving those changes,â&#x20AC;? she said. It was noted in the report that no comments were received on the draft strategy. The Strategy focuses on four goals including ensuring information and communication from the council is accessible to everyone and supports equitable participation in civic life, that council buildings and infrastructure are accessible, that Yarra Ranges is an inclusive and equitable community.

Feedback sought on youth plan By KATH GANNAWAY YARRA Ranges councillors have endorsed the council’s draft Child and Youth Strategy for the next 10 years, putting it out for public comment. Mayor Fiona McAllister, at the 13 May council meeting, said she was thrilled to see the development of the strategy and the council’s commitment to better outcomes for young people and youth. The strategy was put forward by the director of Social and Economic Development as “a key council priority” with a vision that “Yarra Ranges will be a place where every child and young person will be able to thrive, reach their potential and actively participate in decision making”. Action plans that support identified outcomes around children, young people and their families getting the support they need in a timely way, adequate infrastructure, access to services and improved outcomes for those experiencing vulnerability were mapped out to achieve these goals. The strategy identifies three regions - hills, urban and valley, with data revealing diverse needs. The data ranges from population forecasts to breastfeeding and immunisation, to gender equality and family violence.

Comparative data is given for 13 to 25-year-olds against the Victorian state averages on issues such as mental health, bullying, academic outcomes, alcohol consumption, sexual activity and crime. Information is also given on vulnerability and wellbeing, service gaps and youth mental health which was identified as a key priority with a “high rate” of psychiatric hospitalisation, along with very high rates of reported psychological distress. In terms of infrastructure, the report states that the availability of childcare and medical services were routinely reported to be in short supply, with access to tertiary education a current gap that could widen. “The data for us (as a shire) is still very mixed,” Cr McAllister said. “We know there are pockets of disadvantage and pockets of high need, and this should never drop off our agenda.” The draft strategy is open for 42 days from Wednesday 14 May for comment and can be viewed in the council agenda of 13 May as an attachment. For details on how to make a submission, or to request a hard copy, email au , or phone 1300 368 333.

Sweet foretaste of school By KATH GANNAWAY LITTLE kids will be taking over the kitchen at Yellingbo Primary School later this month when the school opens its doors to prospective families. The school will run its Kids In The Kitchen session from 2pm to 4pm on Friday, 30 May. Pre-schoolers and their parents from around the district are being invited to join staff in their

new kitchen for a cooking (and eating) session. As budding cooks, Lila Pratt from Woori Yallock, Jaxon Williams from Yellingbo and Mia Thiedeman from Woori Yallock found out last week, mixing, measuring and pouring can be great fun - whether it’s blue playdough you’re making, or something a bit more tasty. Kids In The Kitchen is an oppor-

tunity for parents and preppies-inwaiting to look over the school, meet the staff and have a bit of fun in the kitchen. The school also runs the free playgroup each Wednesday morning, and a Move ‘N’ Groove music and dance session for school-aged children on Thursdays after school. For more information, phone the school on 5964 3237.

Tops for litterbugs

Holy Fools does care


By MELISSA MEEHAN HOMELESSNESS and poverty are not restricted to City limits. In fact, these issues are just as occurring, sometimes even more prevalent, but are less visible in the suburban areas of Melbourne, including in the Yarra Ranges. For five years, Lilydale-based Holy Fools Inc has provided unconditional care and support for people on and around the streets of Lilydale and the Yarra Ranges. Holy Fools CEO Neal Taylor said it all started back in 2009 when there was a need for community meals in Croydon. “I was involved as a chaplain, and we needed an identity and that’s how Holy Fools was born,” Mr Taylor said. “We have extensive experience providing support services, and being a catalyst for social change, to people experiencing, or at risk of homelessness, living in poverty, or experiencing issues of injustice.” Mr Taylor said. “We do this through working in the areas of positive community development, social justice, homelessness, and housing.” On Wednesdays, Mr Taylor and other volunteers provide a free lunch to the homeless in Lilydale’s Melba Park. It only started three months ago, and already has a number of people attending. “The idea is to provide a kind ear, friendly face and safe place,” he said. “We’re averaging 15-16 people each week, about half of them are homeless, as in living rough, and the others are either couch surfing or sleeping under the roof of other family members.” He said as well as providing a free

Neal Taylor and Deb McLeod at the community barbecue. barbecue lunch, Matt’s Cafe, a free community meal had served in excess of 14,000 nutritious two-course meals each Friday fortnight. Those community meals draw an average of 70-80 people each time. “Many of our friends who attend have been coming since we began, and we pride ourselves that we are not a soup kitchen that just feeds people, rather that we invite all these people to join us in a meal, as friends,” he said. “Our BBQ Outreach has become a place for the homeless and others to connect and enjoy a great feed while we offer services such as Swags for

Homeless and blankets when needed. “We’re hoping to expand this work into other areas of the shire with the provision of a van.” Mr Taylor said Holy Fools ran primarily on volunteers, donations and funding grants. “We do a lot of homeless outreach too,” he said. “I’ll go and see a homeless person, see them to check on their welfare and that they know what systems are out there to help them out.” He said that there was a growing need for services like his in the hills. “Most of the people we are dealing

Picture: MELISSA MEEHAN with are rough sleepers, but there are many more out there that we are not seeing. Holy Fools is fully accredited as an Australian Charity, “While we are not a church, and independent, we are based on Christian values,” he said. “We offer unconditional love and our services to anyone who needs us, regardless of race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.” Those who wish to find out more about Holy Fools are asked to visit their website

THE EPA has applauded Yarra Ranges residents for taking a stance against littering, with more litterbugs turned in as part of a summer-long campaign. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Victoria’s summer litter campaign ran from 1 December 2013 to 31 March 2014, and saw 150 people report litterers in the Yarra Ranges alone. This marked the Yarra Ranges as the 12th largest municipality for litterers being reported, with more than four times as many reports for the top municipality, Hobsons Bay. In the same time the year before, 120 people in the area were turned in throughout the Yarra Ranges for littering. EPA Victoria Acting CEO Katrina McKenzie said the results indicated that Victorians were fed up with litterers in their area. “We increased our number of registered litter reporters by 39 per cent in the same time last year, which shows that more people are aware of the problem and are willing to do something about it.” Ms McKenzie said that of the 9612 total litter reports in the state, 80 per cent were in relation to cigarette litter - both lit and unlit - while 84 per cent of the offences were from people throwing litter from cars. Penalties for littering currently stand at $289 for small pieces of rubbish or an unlit cigarette or $577 for a lit cigarette. Ms McKenzie urged all residents to report litterers to the EPA through the 24-hour pollution hotline at 1300 EPA VIC (1300 372 842) or through au

Lone Wolf on the prowl By JESSE GRAHAM THE Yarra Ranges is set to host an internationally acclaimed musician as he embarks on his first-ever solo tour, with Montrose and Healesville making up the entire Victorian leg of the journey. Folk-pop musician Josh Pyke will perform at Montrose Town Centre and Healesville’s Memo Hall on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 June from 8pm for the opening of his Lone Wolf tour. The local shows are the only two tour dates for Victoria in the tour and Pyke said that he was eager to see the Yarra Ranges - a place he has yet to visit. “I’m always keen for nice venues to play in, and these venues sound really cool,” he said. He said that audience members to his Lone Wolf shows can expect to see music from the whole way through his career - from his beginning with Feeding

the Wolves and Memories and Dust to the Beginning and the End of Everything - re-imagined for a solo performance. The only thing accompanying Pyke to the stage - apart from his loop pedal - will be musician Jack Carty, who will open at the shows. A multiple ARIA award-winner, Pyke has sold out numerous large-scale venues across the state but said that he wants to treat all of his shows, large and small, as a shared experience between himself and the audience. “I don’t think of them as separate things,” he said. “I just try and treat them as an intimate engagement between me and the audience, let the experience be something that we’re sharing.” Through the years since releasing his first songs, Pyke said that he’s experimented with different styles, structures

and arrangements, and that he saw each of his albums as a natural development to his latest record, which he says is his favourite. “It’s natural development, I hope, having more access to memories to draw on,” he said. “When I was doing Memories and Dust, I had two jobs to help pay the bills - after that, I was able to quit my day jobs and focus on being a musician.” “I would hope my skills have developed subsequently.” Josh Pyke’s Lone Wolf shows will open at 8pm on Friday 6 June at Montrose Town Centre, and on Saturday 7 June at Healesville’s Memo Hall. Tickets are $34, and all ages are able to attend the shows. For more information, or to buy tickets, visit or call 5966 4500.

Dance to raise money for roof By KATH GANNAWAY

Ken and Jeanie Herbert can’t wait to be back on the dance floor again. 120544 Picture: KATH GANNAWAY

A COUNTRY Rock Dance is set to ‘raise the roof’ at the Powelltown Hall later month and help raise funds to replace the roof of the neighbouring Unity Church. Restoration of the historic church is well underway and the new church committee is on a mission to raise money for the next big job - the roof. Organisers Dawn and Michael Adams are excited about the event which will recreate the atmosphere of community dances held over the decades at the wonderful old hall. Bill Rowley and his band will be on stage playing the enduring country rock classics of greats such as Johny Cash, Elvis Presley, the Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison and others. Local ballroom and rock ‘n’ roll dance enthusiasts Ken and Jeanie

Herbert tried out the dance floor last week and said they are looking forward to raising the roof a bit for a great community project. The committee will run a sausage sizzle and there will be hot roast beef rolls, hamburgers and drinks available at the Fishing Club Hall right next door. Admission is just $20 per person and children under 15 are $5. “We want to raise some money for the roof, have a fun night and if it’s successful for the community and brings the hall to life again, we’re hoping to do a couple of dances a year,” Dawn said. The Powelltown Country Rock Dance and Concert is on Saturday 31 May from 7.30pm to 11.30pm. For information and tickets phone Dawn or Michael on 5966 7431.

Chef (M) Jon Favreau, Robert Downey Jnr, Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johanssen CHEF, written and directed by star Jon Favreau, is a heartfelt film about family, fine food and fulfilling work. Feeling artistically stifled at his workplace, chef Carl Casper (Favreau) quits his job after a feud with his restaurant manager and a snobby food critic. Carl then sets up a food truck selling Cuban cuisine which restores his reputation and becomes incredibly popu-

lar. Chef is relatively light on conflict; Carl quits restaurant work, starts his food truck business and lives his dream job by only a third of the way through the film. But the rest of the film is a pleasant, uplifting journey of Carl finally finding true happiness in his work and reconnecting with his family. The film has a relaxing atmosphere and the cooking scenes are mouthwatering. The cast has great, natural chemistry, and Carl’s engaging development easily compensates for the mild drama, as Carl reassesses his priorities and opens up more to his

son Percy (Emjay Anthony). The central theme of Chef is the fact that it is often better to work in a low-paying job that you love than a highpaying job that you hate. This message is something that all of us can relate to in our own working lives. There is also a running plot thread about how important social media has become in advertising. Chef is a very satisfying, comfortable film. But be warned - it will make you hungry. - Seth Hynes

Gutsy play for a narrow win Yarra Valley Mountain District Football League First Division A Grade Netball - Round 6 Warburton Millgrove 40 d Mount Evelyn 36 A GREAT win from Warby which got out to a narrow three goal lead at the first break and then maintained that lead throughout the game. The biggest margin was just five goals and that was at the last change in Warby’s favour. Mount Evelyn did battle hard in the last but it was to be Warby’s day as it celebrated with a gutsy four goal victory. Warburton Millgrove: G. Barnard, B. Daniels (23 goals), J. Lord. Mount Evelyn: E. Beazleigh, J. Walker, R. Hickey (15 goals).

Healesville 60 d Woori Yallock 52 HEALESVILLE is getting better every week and it proved that with a very good eight goal win over Woori. Woori held a two goal lead at quarter time but Healesville turned that around with a 16 goal to nine second quarter to take a five goal lead into half time. Healesville continues its good form in the third and stretched the lead to nine goals at the last change and did look the better side. The last quarter went goal for goal and Woori just couldn’t get a run on of goals to really threaten Healesville’s lead as it eventually

Natalie Montanari stands tall in defence. 120648

ran out eight goal victors. Healesville: C. Duncan, C. Connell, C. Carden. Woori Yallock: E. Milner, J. Kennedy, S. Southwick.

Belgrave 72 d Olinda Ferny Creek 51 THIS was a decent win to Belgrave which probably wasn’t quite at its best. It started the game well with an 18 goal to five first quarter and backed that up with a 19 goal to 10 second term and its lead was 22 goals at the half. The second half was very even as Olinda did show some real spirit and, in fact, outscored Belgrave by one goal in the second half but it was all too late because Olinda’s first half had let it down and Belgrave was just a class above early in this match which proved the difference. Belgrave: B. Pilkington, K. Robinson, L. Bennett (51 goals). Olinda Ferny Creek: A. Howard (16 goals), S. Smith (27 goals), G. Martin. Upwey Tecoma 41 d Wandin 38 UPWEY managed to hold off a fast finishing Wandin to win by three goals. Upwey started well with a 17 goal to nine quarter and really did look the goods. The second quarter saw Wandin get back into the game with a nine goals to six and at half time it was Upwey by five goals. The third term was an even affair with both sides scoring 11 goals. The last quarter saw Wandin try everything to eat into the lead which it did do to a degree but just couldn’t get through Upwey’s defence enough to pull off a victory. Upwey Tecoma: M. Walter, G, Hankinson, K. Tomlinson. Wandin: S. Coppinger, M. Martinov (22 goals), E. Priestley. Emerald 45 d Monbulk Hawks 40 EMERALD got its first win of the season with a fantastic come from behind win over Monbulk. Monbulk led by seven goals at half time and did look a bit slicker with the ball but Emerald found something in the third as it produced its best quarter of the year scoring 15 goals to seven and took a one goal lead into the last. Emerald was really good in the last as it scored 12 goals to eight but controlled the game nicely and won in a very professional manner. Emerald: C. Volta, S. MacDonald, R. Appleby. Monbulk Hawks: B. Northey, S. Byatt (20 goals), K. Toone.

Mel Martinov (Wandin) only has eyes for the ball in the Upwey Tecoma v Wandin match. 120648 Second Division A Grade Netball Kinglake 70 d Thornton Eildon 22 A COMPREHENSIVE performance from Kinglake who made short work of a Thornton team that is still struggling to gel together. Kinglake got out to a 14 goal lead at the first change and then just continued to increase that lead at every change as the players did what they pleased. Kinglake scored 39 second half goals to just 10 to win by a massive 48 goals. Kinglake: E. Coen, L. McMahon, S. Redfern. Thornton Eildon: L. Smith, A. Keddell, M. Sier. Seville 65 d Alexandra 23 AN ALL-round good performance from Seville players who had it their own way in this game. Seville got out to a 21 goal lead at the half and was in total control. Alex wasn’t bad in the third as it worked very hard but it was still Seville that won the term 11 goals to five. Seville finished the game in style with a 21 goal to four last

term to completely dominate in the final stages of the game and produce a 42 goal win. Seville: Z. Abbruzzese (32 goals), R. Gentle, T. Hoare. Alexandra: K. Shaw, E. Kidd (14 goals), L. Steyger. Powelltown 44 d Yea 39 THIS was a great game with neither side being able to break away from the other until late in the last term. Powelly held a one goal lead at quarter time but Yea tied it up at half time with both sides on 19 goals. The third quarter was goal for goal with Powelly edging its nose in front by just one goal at the last change. The last quarter Powelly played patiently and found the ring when the opportunity presented while Yea looked a little panicky with Powelly’s composure ultimately winning the game. Powelltown: E. Williams, D. Barber, S. Hansen (35 goals). Yea: C. Butterworth, C. Spagnolo (21 goals), J. Graham. Yarra Glen: Bye Yarra Junction: Bye

Bloods find it easy Healesville Junior Football Club - Round 4 Under 16 Healesville 15.23 (113) d Woori Yallock 3.3 (23) AFTER an even first quarter, the Bloods began to gain momentum repelling all Woori attacks. The scoreboard soon began to indicate the great defence of the backline. The backline and centre players set up the forwards for numerous shots of goals which were shared around among all forwards. The momentum continued leaving Healesville running out very convincing winners at the final siren. Goals: B. Nicholls, J. Parish 4, S. Gommers 2, R. Saric-Skewes, J. Moore, J. Emsley, J. Brooks, R. Ashby. Awards: J. Jones, S. Gommers, C. McInnes. Under 14 Healesville 10.13 (73) d Olinda/Belgrave 3.4 (22) Goals: J. Collings, M. Minney 3, K. Brown 2, T. Hyde-Thomas, G. Schiavello.

Nyko Under 12 Olinda Ferny Creek 8.11 (59) d Healesville 2.1 (13) TOUGH day on the field. Healesville were up against a more capable and desperate opponent that were always ready for a challenge. Goals: C. Oude-Meilink , S. Gebert Awards: L. Blair, J. Willems, J. Fitridge Under 11 Upwey-Tecoma 5-3 (33) d Healesville 3.2 (20) A GREAT effort this week against a very tough and much bigger opponent. The whole team fought the game out to the very end. No victory this week from Healesville, but the team can be all very proud of their effort and endeavor. Goals: J. Garvey 2, J. Howie Awards: R. Duncan, A. Amarant, J. Howie, J. Garvey, L. Goodwin Youth Girls Seville Ranges 13.23 (101) d Healesville 0. 0. (0) HEALESVILLE played Seville in their round five clash. The Redbacks fighting spirit wasn’t enough to stop Seville running out comfortable winners. Awards: L. Ferriggi, M. Brown, S. Martin, S. Woodgate Wesburn Junior Football Club - Round 4 Under 16 Monbulk 17.14 (116) d Wesburn 9.3 (57) A GREAT team effort after a slow first quarter. Some good hard running and fantastic efforts particularly from the younger players, the players should look forward to further improvement and gelling as a team. Goal kickers: J. Mahoney 2, T. Robinson 2, R. Elvey, J. Neal, M. Read, C. Toy Under 14 Monbulk 8.5 (53) d Wesburn 4. 9 (33) IT WAS a hard-fought game.

Knight 1 Under 12 Wesburn 6.10 (46) d Monbulk 4.4 (28) PRESSURE stepped up and the Wesburn boys were up to the challenge.

Division one now has Monbulk on top only by a percentage over Olinda Ferny Creek while in Division two, Yarra Glen now has a one-game break on Seville. While in A Grade Netball, Upwey Tecoma is one game clear on top while in second division Yarra Glen holds top spot by two points. Next Saturday, the YVMDFNL will take on the Mallee Football League in the WorkSafe Country Championships. This game is being held at Woori Yallock Football Ground on Saturday 24 May. The game starts at 12.30pm and will be streamed live through Valley Vision. Olinda Ferny Creek 14.14 (98) d Belgrave 12.8 (80) THE margin may have been only 18 points at the final siren, but it was always Olinda that was in control of this game. The first quarter was goal-for-goal and Olinda took a seven-point lead into the first change. This game was really won in the second quarter when Olinda slammed on six goals-to- two and went into half time with a 31-point buffer. Belgrave did claw their way back in the second half, but every time they threw a bit of a challenge at Olinda’s lead, the latter would respond and always held about a three-goal lead right throughout the second half. This was enough to record a good victory and which sees them second on the ladder and only percentage off top spot. Olinda Ferny Creek best players: D. Wilson (1 goal), J. Rankin (4 goals), D. Rohrmann. Belgrave best players: C. Kelf, D. Collins, A. Field. Mount Evelyn 14.10 (94) d Warburton Milgrove 13.15 (93) MOUNT Evelyn will be breathing a sigh of relief after a nail-biting, onepoint victory. They will also be thanking Rob Hartfield for a best-on-ground performance with eight of their 14 goals. Warby, on the other hand, will be kicking themselves for letting one get away. Mount Evelyn did lead at every change, thanks to more efficient kicking at the goal mouth, at half time Mount Evelyn led by five points but actually had five less scoring shots. Scores at half time was 9.1 (55) to 7.8 (50) The third term was a close affair with Mount Evelyn edging out Warby by just four points and at the last change, it was The Mounters by just nine points. The last quarter saw Mount Evelyn get enough of the ball but their early accuracy was eluding them as they scored 1.5 which kept Warby in it. Warby was coming hard and they booted 3.1 for the quarter but unfortunately for them time ran out and Mount Evelyn celebrated a one-point triumph. Mount Evelyn best players: R.

Billy Duncan flies for the ball in the Upwey Tecoma v Wandin match. 120648 Hartfield (8 goals), C. Haworth, C. Urquhart. Warburton Millgrove best players: M. Wappett (1 goal), D. Noorman, B. Winzer (1 goal). Healesville 15.10 (100) d Woori Yallock 11.9 (75) HEALESVILLE is starting to climb the ladder after a fantastic victory over last years Premiers in Woori Yallock. Healesville started this game the better and had more of the ball and got rewarded on the scoreboard going into quarter time with a 14-point lead. The next two quarters were really an arm wrestle with no team able to get an advantage but Woori did get themselves to within two points at the last change. One would have been forgiven for thinking that Woori would eventually run over the top of Helaesville in the last, but it wasn’t to be as Healesville looked the fresher and stronger right across the field. Their last quarter was exceptional against quality opposition as they booted five goals-to-one to get their best win of the season so far. Healesville best players: D. Plozza (5 goals), B. Miller (2 goals), J. Nugent (1 goal). Woori Yallock best players: J. Adams (1 goal), C. Smedley, K. McAuley (3 goals). SECOND DIVISION SENIORS

Alexandra 16.12 (108) d Seville 14.14 (98) ALEXANDRA pulled off a giant upset after coming from 34 points down at quarter time to defeat what was an undefeated Seville by 10-to-one in the first and it looked like a long day ahead for Alex. But what a contrast it was in the

A don’t argue from Justin Myers of Wandin playing Upwey Tecoma. 120648 second, Alex played inspired football and rammed home 10 goals-to-one and all of a sudden they had a 19-point lead at half time and a real belief they could win this. The second half saw goals a lot harder to come by as both sides defences worked overtime. It was three goals apiece in the third and Alex had a handy 20-point lead at three-quarter time. The last quarter saw Seville actually get a bit more of the ball than Alex but booting 3.6 was there downfall as Alex booted 2.2 to hold on and record their best win of the year and get right back on track for 2014. Alexandra best players: B. Cooper (2 goals), D. Toomey (2 goals), R. Comb. Seville best players: T. Baker, J. Cecere, K. Mullett. Thornton Eildon 25.13 (163) d Kinglake 5.12 (42) THORNTON got their second victory of the year with a comprehensive 121-point victory over a Kinglake team that is clearly struggling to find form. This game was very much over at quarter time as Thornton booted seven straight goals to just four behinds. Thornton booted anther seven goals in the second quarter to Kinglakes two and by the long break it was a 69-point lead to Thornton. The second half didn’t get much

better for Kinglake as they were a little more competitive in the third only being outscored by three points. But Thornton finished the day in style with an eight goal-to-one final term to win big. Thornton Eildon best players: B. Coller (4 goals), B. Kapakoulakis (1 goal), L. Davison (7 goals). Kinglake best players: J. Butterworth (1 goal), T. McDonald. A. McLaren. Yarra Glen 27.19 (181) d Gembrook Cockatoo 10.3 (63) YARRA Glen sits atop the ladder and is the only undefeated team in the competition after they made short work of Gembrook, disposing of them by 118 points. This game started off even enough with Yarra Glen going into quarter time with just a nine point lead. Yarra Glen started to get their running game going in the second and booted 6.6 to 3.2 to go into the long break with a 31 point buffer. But they still weren’t playing at their best but that was all about to change. Yarra Glen went on a rampage in the second half when they booted nine goals to three in the third and followed that up with eight goals to one in the final term to absolutely stamp their authority as favourites for the Division two flag even though it is still early in

the season. Yarra Glen best players: D Watt (3 goals), J Ball, J Baughan. Gembrook Cockatoo best players: R Wilson, D Trevorah (5 goals), D Cock. Yea 14.7.91 d Powelltown 12.17.89 YEA has come from behind to pull off an upset by beating Powelltown by two points. Yea held a 10 point lead at the first change on the back of some pretty good play but Powelltown hit back in the second quarter to grab a nine point lead at the half. The third quarter was reasonably even with Powelly just holding sway and stretching their lead to 18 points by the last change, and it did look as though they would win from there. The last quarter however is one that Powelltown will be ruing as they had their chances to win the game but missed their opportunities. Powelltown booted 1.5 while Yea took theirs and booted 5.1 to hit the lead late and win by two points which sparked scenes of adulation from their home crown who witnessed a remarkable and deserved victory. Yea best players: D. Evans, E. Nielson, N. Simpson (3 goals). Powelltown best players: B. McDonald. C. Ozols, M. Horsley. Yarra Junction: Bye

Bizarre ball beak breaker By MONIQUE KUZEFF TALK about a hole in one. A magpie lost part of its beak after it got wedged in to a golf ball when it was struck during a competition at Warburton Golf Club. Ralph Logan was in the middle of a game when he hit his ball which flew directly towards a bunch of magpies which were scattered around a nearby tree. He said there were about half a dozen of magpies and when he approached them they all clustered around the injured one.

“They all huddled together trying to protect the one that had been struck,” Mr Logan said. “After a few moments of shock, the ball fell off, leaving a part of the lower beak attached.” Mr Logan’s wife De said she was amazed at how the beak had actually penetrated the ball. Mr Logan said what made his experience even more intriguing was that a similar incident occurred in 1937. “The same sort of thing happened at the Kingston Golf Club years and years ago

in 1937,” he said. Junior member of Kingston Heath Golf Club K. B. Lewis had also struck a magpie during a competition where the ball lodged itself on to the bird’s beak and broke it off. Mr Logan said that he felt terrible when he had realised what happened to the bird. “I feel awful as I love magpies, I’m even a Pies fan,” he said. Mr Logan kept the golf ball with the beak attached which will remind him of his bizarre experience.

Marathon effort for cancer cure BIKE riding may be one cycle closer to curing cancer. Yarra Junction resident Kieren Devisser will be creating dust in August when he cycles from Uluru to Melbourne to raise $50,000 for the Cancer Council Foundation. The 16-year-old is aiming to cycle about 2700 kilometres for the Cycle for Cancer in 26 days. Mr Devisser will be riding solo, with a support vehicle with him throughout the journey. The ride will travel via Adelaide, Mount Gambier and along the Great Ocean Road. The idea came from a TV show about cancer patients, the treatment they go through and the effects it can have. “Everybody knows someone that has had cancer, whether they’ve made it through or not,” “I thought about shaving my head or compete in a fun run but that’s just not enough for me,” “So, why not give back to the community?” Mr Devisser said there were a lot of injury risks performing in such a big event. “The main concern is heat stroke and exhaustion.

Cricket legend in cover drive By KATH GANNAWAY ANYTHING Keith Thompson can do to put local cricket in the spotlight, he’ll give his best shot. When the secretary of the Yarra Valley Cricket Association had the opportunity to launching the sport into virtually every home and business in the Yarra Valley, he didn’t think twice. Keith, who lives in Seville, was selected under the theme Inspiring Others to Achieve for the cover of the Yarra Valley White Pages and Yellow Pages. “I was chuffed to have been selected, but you don’t do these sorts of things for recognition, you do it for the entity that you are passionate about, and in my case that’s the game of cricket. Each year Sensis, the pub-

lisher of the phone books, recognises the efforts of local people in their communities with a cover photo celebrating their achievements. Keith was a standout when it came to inspiration. After 44 years as a player, mostly with Seville Cricket Club, he moved into administration. Through his fund-raising efforts and leadership as an administrator at a local and regional level, he has helped provide improved facilities for numerous clubs and thousands of players across the region. He has fostered a passion for the game in younger players and opened up opportunities for many, taking junior teams to overseas competitions and helping expose local players to international talent scouts. Some

have gone on to play at state and national levels. White Pages Product manager Sarah Simpson said Keith was one of thousands of Australians who went the extra mile to help other people succeed. “We wanted to honour these local legends who sometimes hide in the shadows and elevate them to a place where everyone can celebrate them. “This year we are thrilled to recognise Keith’s efforts inspiring his community,” she said. Distribution of the Yarra Valley White Pages and Yellow Pages started on 3 May and was expected to take around six weeks for delivery to each household.

Steer sisters cunning running for Oz By KATH GANNAWAY LAUNCHING Place sisters Lanita and Asha Steer will be ‘cunning running’ in Bulgaria in July as members of the Australian team competing in the Junior World Orienteering Championships. The girls, Lanita, 18, and Asha, 16, were named as part of the squad in April following outstanding performances in National league competitions in New South Wales. Asha is one of six JWOC ‘rookies’ in the 12-strong team while Lanita is a second-time representative having competed in the Czech Republic last year. Orienteering, colloquially known as

‘cunning running’ is a highly competitive sport where runners find their way across rough country with the aid of a map and a compass. The girls, whose parents are also involved in the sport, started with Little Athletics and now run with the Dandenong Ranges Orienteering Club. “It’s a bit of an adventure sport; the original ultra running,” said Lanita, who is looking forward to having her younger sister as both an opponent and a team-mate. “You run as individuals, but you’re competing against each other,” explained Asha, who added it’s all good, and it’s fun to be sharing a sport they both love.

“It’s a real community-feel sport and we are very much a team,” she said of the squad which includes six rookies and two more sibling members. The Australians will be up against the world’s best on a big orienteering stage in what has been compared to the Socceroos qualifying for the World Cup. Nonetheless, Orienteering Australia High Performance manager Lance Reed said they were very happy to have world champion and former junior world champion Hanny Allston on board as coach. “There is good depth in this squad, and we are delighted to have Hanny on board,” he said following the announcement.

For Lanita, who is doing agriculture at university, and Asha a student at Mount Evelyn Christian School, the opportunity to compete at the elite level overseas is as exciting as it is challenging. Lanita said one of the challenges would be adjusting to the higher altitude. The girls are keen to hear from local sponsors as they head off to represent Australia (and the Yarra Valley) on the international stage. Anyone who can help can contact them through the Dandenong Ranges Orienteering Club on 9878 9168.
