EXPERTS say that what used to be a city drug is infiltrating rural areas at an unprecedented rate. A recent Turning Point report showed the use of ice, also known as crystal methamphetamine, has risen across the state. Local police say they could execute a warrant on clandestine labs every day of the week in the Yarra Ranges, Knox and Maroondah regions.

1127797-CA14-14

Not to mention the extra resources needed to deal with the increased drug-related crime. Over the next two weeks the Mail will present a special investigation on the use of the drug, why people use it, as well as the aftermath as we speak to police, paramedics, doctors, nurses, counsellors and families who have all witnessed the devastation caused by the drug - and what help is out there. See pages 8 and 9 for more.

‘Gloria’ gives PM heaps IT’S BEEN a tough week for the Warburton grandmother who prompted the Prime Ministerial wink that went viral on social media after she revealed she supplemented her disability pension on an adult phone sex line. She makes no apologies for her work, or for her no-holds-barred lashing out at Tony Abbott and his government’s budget, but the reality of social media has hit home and she is hanging up her phone – literally! That the ‘wink’ has swamped the real message behind the call to Jon Faine’s ABC talk back segment on Wednesday, 21 May, is a double-edged sword. “If it was the catalyst for him making

an idiot of himself, up to a point, that’s a good thing,” she says . If she were to make the call again however, she would be just as passionate, and as angry – but perhaps not as forthcoming with details that led to her being ‘outed’. The frustration and anger ABC listeners heard in Gloria’s voice had been building as budget leaks painted an increasingly grim picture for people already struggling to make ends meet. After paying rent, 67 year-old Gloria who suffers from heart problems and emphysema, has $200 a week to live on; that’s food, clothing, power, fuel, wood and things most people take for granted such as gifts for her grandchildren. “Financially, I walk along the edge of a precipice, and it doesn’t take much

to go over. I had been seething and becoming increasingly apprehensive about how it was going to affect me and worrying about it,” she said. “But it’s not just me; there are some a lot worse off than me. “A six-month wait is appalling,” she says of the budget move that will mean some young people will be without an income for six months after leaving school or finishing employment. “It’s just creating a huge underclass; making people who are already disadvantaged more disadvantaged, and making more of us disadvantaged.” Julia Gillard came under fire too for her ‘reforms’ that saw single parents forced onto the lower Newstart payment. “If I had been able to talk to Julia Gillard about what they did to single par-

ents, I would be just as angry with her - partly because you expect more from Labor,” she added. Gloria said she has had a lot of support for her views on the inequity of a budget that she said put the onus on the poor to do the heaviest lifting. “It’s this punitive attitude, it’s alienating people and it’s pushing people to the margins,” she said inviting the local Liberal MP (Tony Smith) to walk a mile in the shoes of those the budget will most affect. “I would love to see the Liberal person who represents us come up here and try to live on what many people up here have to survive on,” Gloria said. “It would be good to talk, and to know how he feels about this budget.”

THE driver of a ute that run into the back of a traffic control vehicle on the Warburton Highway on Wednesday 21 May, has received an infringement for careless driving. The MakeSafe Traffic Management vehicle had stopped in the left lane of the two-lane section of the highway near Allsops Road around 4.15pm to collect roadwork signs when the ute slammed into the back pushing it into the embankment. There were no injuries, however emergency workers at the scene said the situation could have been very different had the MakeSafe driver been on the embankment side of his vehicle, and had the ute been carrying a passenger. Hillcrest CFA and police from Healesville attended, diverting traffic around the scene while the area was cleared.

Sinking feelings By KATH GANNAWAY A CONDEMNED art room and portable buildings that are sinking have prompted a call by Yarra Junction Primary School parents for what they say is a long-overdue upgrade. After 30 years with no significant State Government infrastructure funding, School Council president Brian Westlake said the school community was left wondering whether providing community-funded buildings over the years has been its undoing. And, with no money in the current state budget for the estimated $2 million upgrade that the school council believes is warranted, the plight of the school’s 247 students is on the radar to become an election issue when the new seat of Eildon comes up for grabs in November. The issue came to a head when the art room, a 1926 shelter shed which was converted by parents in the 1970s, was condemned and earmarked for demolition. Two other buildings, a relocated school house, which is used for computer classes, and the stadium, were also built by the school community. “The Education Department have added those buildings in as part of the school’s facilities and the effect of that is that we aren’t eligible for anything new because of the buildings we have,� Mr Westlake said. “Basically, they are saying ‘you have enough’,� he said. Mr Westlake said communityfunded facilities are not counted in the same way at other schools, which begged the question, ‘why is Yarra Junction being disadvantaged?’. He said the problem was com-

IT’S more than six years ago that Warburton Advancement League mounted a campaign to get the natural gas pipeline extended from Millgrove to Warburton. WAL secretary Sue Slusarek called on community support and told the Mail “we aim to keep the momentum going until the gas is turned on�. That will now happen in 2017 according the Minister for Regional and Rural Development Peter Ryan who announced on Monday 19 May that the State Government had entered into an agreement with Multinet Gas to supply natural gas to Warburton. Mr Ryan said the government had committed $7.88 million to the project

Thieves raid our Diggers’ dreams

School Council members, president Brian Westlake, Melinda Darwall and Zoe Delaney accept the art room has to go, but say it needs to be replaced and are lobbying for a better deal for Yarra Junction Primary Picture: KATH GANNAWAY School students. 121085 pounded by Education Department portable buildings that were placed on backfilled soil some years ago. He said the building’s foundations sunk as the ground settled and now the building’s doors won’t shut properly or won’t open. The School Council wants to demolish the art building but also wants a guarantee that it will be replaced something it said the government is not prepared to do. The School Council’s wants to replace the portables with two new classrooms and an adjoining art room. Mr Westlake said the school had applied but failed to get funding over several years to address the school’s sprawl of ageing and high-maintenance buildings.

Seymour MP and candidate for Eildon Cindy McLeish told the Mail she had met with the School Council and was verifying through the Education Minister what funding had, or had not, been provided to the school. In terms of an election promise, Ms McLeish said she would like to see the matter resolved before the election. “The budget has been fully expended, so I am trying to ascertain what we can do,� she said. Labor candidate for Eildon and local resident Sally Brennan has also been out to the school which she said had been held up by the Education Department as a flagship of community activity in a school, but which was now being penalised because of that involvement.

and that the “long-awaited arrival of natural gas to Warburton would reduce the cost of gas for residents and businesses�. The announcement of the construction of a gas pipeline, previously rejected as prohibitively expensive, came as a surprise to Ms Slusarek and many business operators in the town who were told late last year that the most likely option was to truck gas into a central tank. “It was talked about for years before we started lobbying seriously in 2008,� she said when told of the new plans. “When the pipeline stopped at Millgrove it was a crushing blow, but it’s good news for people like me, and for businesses. “If I look around at my friends, we’re a lot older

than when we started (lobbying) and when you have to buy and chop wood to keep warm, I can tell you natural gas is looking very good,� she said. The Crocket Group behind the development of Edgewater Resort, the old Sanitarium building, were also pushing for natural gas but without clarification of when it would be available changed its plans to use more electricity than gas. Chief executive Eric Sword told the Mail last week that it hadn’t heard the latest announcement but welcomed gas for Warburton and said it may be possible to review its final plans to include more use of gas. Local tourism operator Mike Iley represented Warburton Valley CEDA (Community Economic Devel-

opment Association) at the announcement. He said he welcomed the news which would have significant beneficial influence on the costs of any business currently using LPG, based on Mr Ryan’s statement that the cost was about one-third of the cost of bottled gas. “What was stressed on Monday was that the contract was let and so there shouldn’t be any going back,� he said, but added details including where the pipe line would finish were scarce. Business operator Paul Jackson was also part of the 2008 lobby. He said reticulated gas presented a better foundation on which business could make long-term decisions about energy use.

THIEVES targeted the Warburton RSL and Golf Club over the weekend stealing alcohol, war memorabilia and thousands of dollars worth of tools. Leading Senior Constable Scott Papeneux of Lilydale Crime Scene Unit said it was believed that the break-ins occurred on the same night. “They have searched through boxes, there are Anzac badges missing as well as three slabs of beer taken from the fridge, a World War I antique flare gun, a bayonet from a display cabinet, laptop and keys. “They have used those keys to enter a container used for storage outside the back door where they have stolen power tools. Warburton RSL president Keith Thomas described the break-in as sacrilege. “It is the same as breaking into a church,� he said. RSL secretary Lindsay Fischer said the flare gun and bayonet from World War I were donated to the RSL by families who had lost loved ones in the war. “Now we have to get in touch with those families and explain what has happened it’s very hard,� he said. “It’s devastating, the only thing we can do now is upgrade our security and that’s more money that could have been used to help the elderly. “If those who have taken the memorabilia have a heart, bring back the flare gun and the bayonet - and really the tools, too.� Leading Sen Const Papeneux said it is possible the break-ins are related to a spate of attacks along the Warburton Highway in April. “We now will have to see what we can get as far as finger-prints are concerned and take it from there,� he said. “It is a very disappointing situation.� Police would like to hear from anyone who noticed any suspicious activity over the weekend, particularly Saturday night in Warburton. Those who have any information are urged to call Lilydale CIU on 9730 2300 or phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

HEALESVILLE tourist icon, Healesville Sanctuary, is celebrating a landmark birthday to coincide with the town’s 150th, with 80 years of history at the well-visited destination. The Sir Colin MacKenzie Sanctuary opened on 30 May 1934, 13 years after Dr MacKenzie was granted 70 acres of land to study native fauna for medical research. The venue has grown significantly since that time, and millions of visitors from home and abroad have passed through the gates to see the flocks of native animals in their enclosures. Healesville Sanctuary director Glen Holland said that many people in Australia and internationally had an emotional connection to the place and the animals. Mr Holland said this connection became most evident after the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires, which saw the sanctuary and the town under direct threat, and the first-ever evacuation of the animals. “Messages of concern flooded in from all over the world - Japan, Sweden ... and the United States of America - along with offers of support and donations, which enabled us to provide the very best of veterinary care to the Australian native wildlife affected by the bushfires,” he said. Continuing with its initial theme of studying native fauna, the sanctuary has a strong focus on conservation and has run breeding programs for endangered species such as the helmeted honeyeater and the Tas-

For some, particularly those who work side-by-side with the animals, the residents of the sanctuary are as close as family. Mr Holland said the birthday was an occasion to celebrate the sanctuary’s journey over the last 80 years and the people who have cared for the animals over that time. “Our birthday is a chance to thank all staff and volunteers, our fantastic Zoos Victoria and the broader community for their

efforts in creating this exceptional place, he said.” On Saturday 31 May and Sunday 1 June, anyone turning 80 years old this year, born in 1980 or celebrating their birthday over the weekend will receive free entry to the sanctuary. Celebrations will also be taking place as part of Reconciliation Week, with boomerang throwing, face-painting, bush tucker and animal encounters. For more information, visit www.zoo.org.au.

Sue Contarino (Tanner) with students and her 1000 paper cranes after the donation last Picture: JESSE GRAHAM week. 121079

School support By JESSE GRAHAM A BELOVED Healesville High School teacher received a heartwarming gift from her students last week when a cancer fundraiser donation brought her to tears. Sue Contarino, who is also known as Sue Tanner, was diagnosed with stage three ovarian cancer last year. She was given $1500 from students at Healesville High School in an assembly on Friday 23 May after students banded together to run a fundraiser at the school on 4 April to raise money for Ms Contarino’s medical bills. Accompanying the donation was a gift from the students and LOTE teacher Ashleigh Coleman - 1000 paper cranes, linked together.

Ms Coleman explained that in Japanese mythology, creating 1000 origami cranes is said to grant a person eternal good luck and one wish. She said that the students had wanted to create the cranes for the teacher. An emotional Ms Contarino took the podium and thanked the school and the students for their efforts in raising the money, which will go towards outstanding bills. She told the massed students that she didn’t want to take the donation quietly, and wanted to share the story of the “righthand” blow of her cancer diagnosis, and of the “left-hand blow” of the news of the death of her nephew Josh Matthews. “I want to encourage you - I want to say to you that, no mat-

ter what you’re going through in your life, you can get through it,” Ms Contarino said. She urged the students to keep friends and family that they trust and that they can rely on for when things get tough, and that, though they may earn battle scars through their life, they can make it through. Showing her “battle scar” to the students, Ms Contarino removed her hat and revealed her hairless head, to roaring applause from the crowd. In finishing her speech, Ms Contarino said she was now in remission, with an 80 per cent chance of survival, and that she would return to the school to teach. “I love you guys. I’m coming back. I’m coming back!”

AS COLD AS ICE Ice kick to the face ICE STATS Husband By MELISSA MEEHAN

a stranger By MELISSA MEEHAN IT changed a good man, father and husband into a monster. Normally mellow and laidback, the husband of Karen (not her real name) turned into someone she no longer recognised when he started using ice. At first the signs were slight. He became restless and had more energy, but soon she noticed that the bank accounts were empty and he became more frantic. “I didn’t know he was using at the start, but noticed he wasn’t quite himself,” Karen said. “Then I found myself standing at the supermarket checkout, more than once, with the card declining and realised we had no money for food, despite thinking we had up to $500 in the account. “From there it was a downward slope.” When she finally found out about his addiction, the mother of three said she couldn’t believe it. “I didn’t think that kind of stuff was done in the Yarra Ranges, you associate it more with city life,” she said.“But he’d made new friends, and obviously this was something they did together.” She said his behaviour soon became so frantic and aggressive that the kids would hide from him when he came home. “He never hit me, but he became so violent,” she said.“The kids were scared, I was scared - we just didn’t know what he would do next.”

She said he became someone she no longer knew. “I would look into his eyes, and see a completely different person,” she said. “He frightened me, and even more scary, was how quickly it all happened.” Her husband became so suspicious and paranoid that he started carrying a knife. While he never used it to threaten her or the kids, Karen said that was a sign that he was no longer the man she married. “I made the decision to leave him,” she said. “The kids were my priority, and I was scared that he could hurt them in one of his rages. “He had the strength of 10 men and if something happened I wouldn’t be able to stop him.” Now separated, Karen looks back on those hard days with tears in her eyes. “It was a very dark time for me,” she said. “To see someone I loved completely change in front of my eyes and become someone so dangerous really affected me. “Not to mention the kids.” Now, her husband has stopped using the drug, moved out of the area and has rebuilt his relationship with his children. “Yes, there is a relationship now,” she said. “But some things you can’t repair and the kids still remember who he became and how he was. “It’s a tough thing to go through and they are still affected by it.”

A DANGEROUS kick to the head resulted in a local paramedic needing CT scans, after she was brutally attacked by an ice user as she transported him to hospital. The man was coming down from ice, and as paramedics arrived the man was in a relaxed state. They sat him down, and as they spoke to the triage nurse he became aggravated before planting the kick, which could have been fatal. Luckily the paramedic wasn’t fatally injured, but it’s a frightening example of the day to day dangers faced by emergency crews called to events where ice is involved. Acting Team Manager at Ambulance Victoria branches in Emerald and Belgrave, Fida Masri said the above incident, while rare, showed the dangers of the job. “That paramedic was lucky she wasn’t seriously injured in the end,” she said. “But it depicts the violent and aggressive nature of people on ice.” Ms Masri said it was important that people understood that ice was no longer a party drug, and said it was infiltrating the suburbs and country towns at an alarming rate. “Paramedics are reporting an increase and spike in ambulance callouts to people affected by crystal methamphetamine,” she said. “What is hard for us is that we think we’re being called out to a heroin overdose, unaware they’ve also taken ice, we’re already on alert but we treat them and then they wake in a psychotic rage. “It can be a dangerous turn of events, heroin users can be agres-

sive, but ice takes it to a whole new level.” She said with ice, users could often go from zero to 1000 in a matter of minutes, so they took heroin to slow down the effects and come down. “It’s not documented, but anecdotally we’re seeing an increase of polypharmacy drugs,” she said. “It just means that often, we’re not sure what we are dealing with.” Ms Masri said that often users could present as being OK and quite calm, but then have moments of rage. “I’ve been on the scene with five paramedics, six to seven police having to help with one patient,” she said. “They seem to get the strength of 10 men, in a frenzied psychotic episode. “The OC foam doesn’t even affect them.” The medical risks are high, too, with users often at threat of heart attacks or strokes because of increased heart rate and blood pressure. It’s all a world many in the community wouldn’t see or understand. But for those affected by addiction to the violent drug, it’s hell. “I often think about a young kid that overdosed at home one night,” she said. “His mother was beside herself, crying and screaming - she worked herself up so much we needed to take her to hospital for chest pains. “And I thought to myself, why would anyone do this to their families? “But I guess, when they are hooked they don’t care about anything else other than their next hit.”

NATIONAL

■ 6.8 per cent of Australians aged 12 years and older have used meth/amphetamines at some stage in their life. ■ 2 per cent have used meth/ amphetamines in the previous 12 months. VICTORIA ■ In metropolitan Melbourne there was an 88 per cent increase in the number of attendances for crystal methamphetamine between 2011-’12 and 2012-’13, up to an average of three per day. ■ In regional Victoria, the increase was 198 per cent, up to 0.63 per day. ■ Crystal methamphetamine is the fourth most common drug involved in ambulance attendances, following alcohol, benziodiazapines and nonopioid analgesics (such as paracetamol).-Turning Point Trends in Alcohol and Drug Related Ambulance Attendances in Victoria 2012-’13 report ■ The report was produced by Turning Point in conjunction with Ambulance Victoria, and funded by the Victorian Department of Health.

Hospitals see the effects of the drugs By REBECCA BILLS LOCAL hospitals are also copping the brunt of ice-related side-effects. Emergency Department Associate Nurse Unit Manager at the Angliss Hospital, Sue Brown, said there had been a big increase of ice-induced incidents in the area. “What people are taking is not always clean,” she said. “There has been at least twice as many, if not four times as many people coming through the emergency ward over the last few years with ages varying from 18 to 30 in relation to the drug. “It’s a big increase and often they haven’t had a large amount of the drug - that is an effect of it not being pure.” Ms Brown said patients who were admitted were often very aggressive and became quite unreasonable with what they wanted. It could take up to four to six days for them to come down.

What is ice? ICE is a stimulant drug, which means it speeds up the messages travelling between the brain and the body. It is a type of methamphetamine, which is generally stronger, more addictive and has more harmful side effects than the powdered form known as speed. Ice usually comes as a white or brownish crystal-like powder, with a strong smell and bitter taste. It can also come in the form of sheets of clear crystals.

Other names include crystal meth, shabu, crystal, glass, and shard. How is it used? Ice is generally smoked or injected and the effects can be felt immediately. It can also be swallowed or snorted; the effects take around 30 minutes to feel if it’s used in this way. There is no safe level of drug use. Use of any drug always carries some risk. – Australian Drug Foundation

AS COLD AS ICE Police break the ice

Deadly to health By MELISSA MEEHAN HEART attacks, strokes and other serious illnesses can be triggered by the use of crystal methamphetamine. Crystal methamphetamine, more commonly known as ice, related ambulance attendances are on the rise across Victoria, including the Yarra Ranges according to a recently released report by Turning Point. While the figures locally aren’t as high as other areas, emergency services personnel say the problem is much more widespread as the figures only show incidences where an ambulance was called. Turning Point clinical director Doctor Matt Frei said the recent report on the alarming rise in ambulance call-outs meant there were, without doubt, many more taking the drug that were not necessarily caught up in the statistics.

It’s also highly addictive - so a recipe for trouble… Dr Matt Frei

But he said users faced serious medical problems caused by the drug. “It interferes with brain chemistry and is from the stimulant family,” he said. “It’s also highly addictive - so a recipe for trouble.” Dr Frei said the drug had been around for a long time, decades in fact, and was often prescribed for weight loss, fatigue and depression back in the 1950s. “It became apparent, the problems associated with taking the drug - it was addictive and caused several significant side effects,” he said. “Then it became a criminal market.”

He said that a range of people used ice, from young teenagers to 50-year-old women. But it seemed to be the choice of younger drug takers. “From our research you would say the median age of users is about 27 years old,” he said. “But of course, like anything else there are people on either side of that spectrum.” The ability to smoke it makes ice more socially acceptable, according to Dr Frei. “It has an advantage over heroin because it can be smoked as well as injected,” he said. “People don’t like the idea of becoming a ‘junkie’ with needles in their arms, so they smoke it,

not realising it’s just as dangerous.” Sleepness nights, violent behaviour and paranoia are all effects of the drug, and Dr Frei has seen his fair share of symptoms in emergency hospital wards. “We have some people coming in, needing to be held down by police, paramedics, psych ward staff and security staff,” he said. “And these guys are presenting with mental health issues, sores, and sometimes cardiac events.” He said the latest report came from a number of paramedics and doctors noticing a trend. “Hopefully this report makes the people in charge understand what is happening out on the streets,” he said. “It’s a trend that we need to put more effort into.”

Ice is not a myth, urban or otherwise By KATH GANNAWAY AND JESSE GRAHAM THE Mail’s day-to-day contact with police on the beat in the Yarra Valley backs up concerns that ice is not an urban problem, and it’s not an urban myth either. Police such as Kevin Largue at Yarra Junction openly state: “Ice is an increasing problem and it’s in every part of society, not just down in the suburbs,” he said. They see it in the family violence call-outs and say they know it’s a factor because they’re told it is by the people they’re dealing with in those situations. “People who would not have had a tendency (to do drugs) are cropping up. We are seeing people who are cleanskins, never been in trouble before, doing very serious assaults.” It’s a revelation to most of the community who picture drug users as young people, losers and people generally on the thin edge of society. “We’re seeing otherwise stable people - married, a job, young chil-

dren, a mortage - the whole deal and both are addicted to ice and falling apart at the seams.” Yarra Glen Police Sergeant and acting Healesville Sergeant Richard Coulson said that ice was a trending issue in the area, and police were still finding appropriate ways of dealing with the problem. “We’re trying to adopt strategies and ways to deal with situations as they come to hand,” he said. Other police tell the same story and there’s a level of concern not only about the growing burden of

ice crime on their work, but on what it means for the people whose lives are affected, as users, colleagues, family ... friends. Ask them why the general public is not aware of what’s happening and they will tell you the stereotypical portrait of users as skinny 18-yearolds with sores all over their face is not typical; it happens and it’s tragic, but after years of use. They talk of tradesmen in their late thirties and forties, uni students, and professionals; people in all socio-economic groups. Then there are the ones who turn to ice as a way of getting out of their own financial problems, some funding their own use, but often just because they can make big money from a commodity that is increasing in demand and is highly addictive. Sgt Coulson said that Healesville had more ice-related incidents compared to Yarra Glen, but said it was an issue for the whole of the state, not just the leafy towns in the outer east. He said that drug users had

variations in their behaviour, which makes tackling the problem more difficult for officers, who may not know how people will react to situations. And the figures they talk about are staggering. Drug offences recorded in the Yarra Ranges dropped 7.1 per cent between 2012 and 2013, with 374 offences falling to 364 in the respective years. However, assault charges - including family violence assaults - rose 11.2 per cent over the same time period. For a problem that police say is behind a lot of offending, including family violence, police say they need people to stand up and help them. If you know, or suspect, people of using, making or selling methamphetamines - ice - don’t leave it to someone else, call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. If someone is behaving irrationally or violently and police are needed, call triple-zero immediately.

IT’S an addiction that takes hold, turning lawabiding citizens into crazed criminals desperate to find their next hit. While the police statistics don’t yet show it, local police anecdotally say they have noticed an increase in drug-related crime in the region. Many blame the increase on ice use, something that has generally been described as a city drug. But now it’s evident that the drug is no longer just a party drug and is creeping its way into rural areas. After speaking to local police on the issue off the record, the Mail contacted Acting Detective Sergeant Mick Duke from the Croydon Divisional Tasking Unit. His team’s role is to stop the scourge spreading through the region and has been at the forefront of raids on clandestine labs in and around the Yarra Ranges. For them, in a perfect world they could execute a warrant every day of the week. For the community, in a perfect world there would be no need for the warrant. “There is no doubt ice use is more prevalent these days,” Acting Det Sgt Duke said. “And it’s on the increase, and drug-related crime is linked to that.” Acting Det Sgt Duke said once users became hooked on ice, their one focus in life was to find their next hit. “It’s fairly expensive compared to other drugs,” he said. “So they start off paying for it out of their normal wages, then they need more and more so start stealing from family and then it just escalates from there.” He said a number of users ended up trafficking the drug just to pay for their own habit. “They start depending on the drug at desperate levels, some start with petty crime, others more serious,” he said. “We have already seen a link to an increase in drug-related crimes like family violence and aggravated assaults.” With the increased use of ice, comes frantic paranoia. The drug often turns meek and mild personalities into raging lunatics. Not only do users describe feeling like they have the strength of 10 men when they take it, coming down from the drug means they often don’t sleep for days. “In the past we’ve been able to execute search warrants in early morning raids,” Acting Det Sgt Duke said. “But now, it’s not unusual for us to go to a house at 4am to find everyone sitting up in the lounge room taking a hit of the pipe. “And these labs aren’t just a one-off - in a perfect world we could execute a warrant every day of the week in our division.” It’s a dangerous job for the Croydon DTU, with paranoid users and cooks arming themselves to protect their stash. Often they need to call in help from the city. “We have to be careful about who, where, when and what we do,” he said. “It has to be a safe working environment for my team. It needs careful planning and innovative techniques. “But we are determined to clean up the streets.” – Melissa Meehan

Dough snap’s cute portrait By JESSE GRAHAM YOU’VE most likely had a photograph taken of you - who hasn’t? But have you ever had a photograph taken with dough on your head? TarraWarra Museum of Art (TWMA) will be hosting a free Dough Portrait Day on Sunday 1 June for exactly that - with internationally renowned artist Søren Dahlgaard setting up unique portraits on the day. The photo shoot entails people posing as if for a regular photograph, only with huge lumps of dough placed over their heads, obscuring their faces. Dahlgaard will be taking photos of visitors covered in dough from 11am3pm on the day, and photographs from the event will be used for the upcoming biennial at the museum, called Whisper in my Mask. The biennial, which runs from 16 August to 16 November, explores the theme of masking, secrets and hidden narratives - such as psychological states. It will be curated by Natalie King and Djon Mundine, and many Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists have been selected to display their work as part of the event.

GODZILLA, directed by Gareth Edwards, is a terrific monster movie in which just enough is perfect. Lieutenant Ford Brody (Aaron TaylorJohnson) and his family find themselves caught up in a devastating conflict between ancient monsters. Mutos, macabre creatures that feed on radiation, are threatening the safety of humanity, and the reptilian titan Godzilla may be the only thing that can defeat them. Godzilla hits the perfect note in almost every aspect. The film has just enough fanciful elements in the premise without being corny, and is dark and compelling instead. The characters are established and developed just enough for us to like and invest ourselves in them, but without robbing the

spotlight from the monsters. Godzilla gets just enough screentime in the first and second acts to generate eager anticipation (in a Jaws-like strategy of less is more), and so avoids overexposure. The performances are outstanding especially from Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe and Elizabeth Olsen. The pacing is excellent, the effects and creature design are amazing and the final epic battle between Godzilla and the Mutos is glorious. Godzilla is also an incredibly effective disaster movie, and has an impressive scope and commitment to worldbuilding. This is a real treat for fans of the Godzilla franchise, and for everyone else. Godzilla is an enthralling, superbly made experience. Like the proverbial third bowl of porridge, Godzilla is just right.

Choice coffee goes down well WINTER is coming.The air is getting colder and the weather, getting wetter - what better way to escape from the dreary weather than with a warm cup of coffee? When it comes to getting a quality cuppa, there are numerous different varieties and flavours on offer, for those with different taste. Chocolate lovers can indulge in a mocha, which combines two classic beverages - hot chocolate and coffee, while those wanting a sharper taste (while still sating their sweet tooth) can opt to have a frothy cappuccino. Those after a milkier drink

will find their poison-ofchoice in a steaming hot latte, or perhaps a froth-free flat white. For a drink full of flavour, albeit with a bit of bite, an espresso is a quick way to get a solid caffeine fix. There are a number of ways to check if a coffee is perfectly made, but one of the key features of a good cup is properly-textured milk. A drink with well-textured milk will have froth, but it should be smooth and interwoven with the milk, and not end up as a hunk of bubbles on top of the drink. As for temperature, a good

serving temperature for your favourite brew should be around 70 degrees - the drink should be cool enough to sip right away, but should still be hot enough to enjoy for a few minutes before going cold. A lot of the rest comes down to taste - how strong the drink is, how much sugar is added is all down to individual tastes and tolerances, and it is good to experiment to find what works best. With autumn on the verge of shifting to winter, there is no better time to indulge in a warm drink while escaping the bleak weather and pouring rain.

A well-made coffee should have smooth, textured milk, and be warm enough to sip straight away. 114392

A nice, frothy cappuccino is a way to indulge a sweet tooth while still getting a coffee fix. 104474

Top do exudes harmony By KATH GANNAWAY COMING up with just three highlights of the Warburton Harmony Festival was a tall order for organiser Keith Simons. The four-day festival from 16 to 19 May was packed with events that celebrated many levels of community, spirituality and culture, including local Indigenous culture, through the experiences of internationally renown speakers, music, dance, film, workshops and food. “Three highlights for me were the dialogues with Uncle Bob Randall, Mahomad Abdalla and Alexander Shaia, the Interfaith Forum and the Flamenco performances on the Sunday evening,” Mr Simons said. But, he added “There were so many others.” Mr Simons said the festival was rated by many of the invited speakers and other guests as the best festival or event they had ever been to and certainly the vibe around Warburton over the festival long weekend was exciting and colourful. He said the feedback from the public had also been almost universally positive. “Some have said it was the best festival so far,” Mr Simons said.

Wurundjeri woman Brooke Collins shared local Indigenous culture with Denis Lugor from Ausudan Education Foundation and friend Victor Ohiaegbunam. 120997 Picture: KATH GANNAWAY

Doug gets life membership By KATH GANNAWAY LITTLE Yarra Fire Brigade member Frank ‘Doug’ Cole was presented with Life Membership of the Victorian CFA at the brigade’s annual general meeting on 12 May. Mr Cole’s involvement with the CFA began as a teenager. “Dad (Frank Cole) and I both joined the brigade around 1958. I would have been 16 at the time, and Don Parkinson, who had just become captain of the Little Yarra Fire Brigade came around and asked us if we would become members,” he recalled.

Frank agreed to help out in an emergency, which Doug said was how it worked back then. “I was working out in the bush, and if there was a fire I would turn out as a volunteer firefighter,” he said. Brigade captain Les Hart paid tribute to Mr Cole’s contribution over the years, saying he had been an invaluable active member, including four years as captain, and continued to be a valuable resource. “His local knowledge is invaluable, especially around Hoddles Creek and Bunyip areas. “If you want to know something

about a specific area, Doug is the person you talk to,” he said. Service awards were also presented on the night with Mr Cole recognised for 45 years’ service to the brigade with the CFA 45 Year Medal. Mr Hart, who has been captain for six years received his CFA 15 Year Medal, Clive Halls received the CFA 30 Year Medal and Nikki Armstrong, Niall McLaughlin and Vesna Bulut received the CFA 5 Year Certificates. CFA Operations officer, Don Tomkins, and Regional Director Da- Life Membership of the CFA came as a surprise to Little Yarra Fire Picture: KATH GANNAWAY Brigade’s Doug Cole. 121051 vid Baker made the presentations.

Visitors enjoy the challenge By LESLEY RUNDLE LAST Saturday the Marysville golfers hosted an event promoted by Golf Victoria and in glorious sunshine the visitors and members played a mixed 4BBB stableford. Visiting golfers represented Woodlands Golf Club, Victoria Golf Club, Bendigo Golf Club and players from the Bendigo Bank. The visitors were impressed with the golf course and many promised to return and suggested the Marysville Challenge become an annual event. The winning combination was Keith McClaine from Marysville and Bev Manallack from Woodlands with an excellent 48 stableford points. The runners up were Bendigo Bank players Matt White and Brock Pinner with 46 points. The nearest the pins were won by Liz Amos, Brock Pinner and Ray Jones. Thanks to Steve Manallack from Woodlands and Ken Whittingham, Nick Williamson and Adam Littlejohn from Marysville for assisting with the organisation of the event on Saturday. Members and visitors also wish to thank Rob Christie, Kellan Fiske and the volunteers for preparing the course which looked stunning in the autumn sunshine. On Thursday the nine holers played stableford on the back nine holes. The winner was Geoff Ferguson with 17 points followed by John Moore with 14 points. Roger Thomas won the nearest the pin event on the 18th hole. On Thursday six ladies will travel to Strathbogie to play in their annual Bowl. The finishing touches are taking place to the new clubhouse and the official handover will be within the next two weeks. Members are looking forward to moving in to the beautiful new facility and sharing it with the local community and visitors from far afield. Next Saturday the men will play a stableford round and the ladies will play a stableford round for the second round of the silver spoon. All golfers are welcome to join the Marysville members in any of the weekly competitions. For more information, call the club on 5963 3241.

Valley back in top 10 INTERLEAGUE 2014 THE Yarra Valley Mountain District Community Bank Football Netball League Senior interleague team played host to the Mallee Football League on the weekend. The Yarra Valley ran out the comfortable winner and has put itself back in the top 10 and by all other results over the weekend it looks like it will be a trip to take on Gippsland Football League in 2015. SENIORS Conditions were good for football. The ground was a bit soft in spots due to the rain that fell on Friday but it had no bearing on the standard of football that was played. Yarra Valley came out strongly and got the jump and used the ball far more effectively and played the ground and its conditions well.

A seven goal quarter of which five belonged to Michael Fowkes (Wandin) saw the Yarra Valley take a comfortable lead at the first break by 38 points. The Mallee fought back in the second and kicked five goals but the strength of the running players like Luke McKenna (Emerald), Nick Keegan (Olinda) and Rhys Chapman (Thornton Eildon) were always going to make it tough. The lead was extended to 43 points at the major break. The dual spearheads up forward for the Yarra Valley in Michael Fowkes (Wandin) and Daniel Waters (Upwey Tecoma) turned out to be a huge headache for the Mallee in the third and they were well supported by the small forwards in Daniel Hurley (Yarra Glen), Jim Messis (Wandin) and Jarrod Bayliss

(Wandin). The Yarra Valley held the Mallee to one goal in the third while it managed to kick 5.5. The result ended up being a runaway win for the Yarra Valley by a resounding 107 points. Taking out the AFL VIC Country (Best on Ground Medals) were Michael Fowkes for the Yarra Valley and Coleman Schache for the Mallee. Shane Williams was voted by his peers as best on ground for the Yarra Valley. Yarra Valley MDFNL 7.3 13.4 17.9 25.12 (162) Mallee FL 1.1 6.3 7.5 8.7 (55) GOAL KICKERS YVMDFNL M.
