Issue #235 – Wednesday, 4 June, 2014

Albury Wodonga’s largest circulating newspaper

Taking aim at the ice age A forum on methamphetamine or ‘ice’ was held last week in a bid to find out what can be done in the local area. Find out what councils, police and the local members can do. TURN TO PAGE 3 FOR MORE.

Public privacy By KRYSTEN MANUEL THE Rights To Privacy Rally has been hailed as a success by organisers, who counted over 150 people in attendance. The rally was set to be a demonstration against the pro-life protesters - ‘Helpers of God’s Precious Infants’ who controversially protest outside a local clinic every Thursday. “I like to call it a medical privacy rally, I think it was a huge success and I’m delighted with the amount of people that turned up,” Rights To Privacy activist Dr Pieter Mourik said. “Albury councillor David Thurley counted over 150 people in attendance. “It’s not freedom of speech, we’re not even discussing abortion, we’re discussion invasion and violation of medical privacy which is sacrosanct but not illegal.” The rally began at the Englehardt Street clinic, with walkers carrying placards up to QEII Square where Dr Mourik, AlburyCity councillor David Thurley and Rights To Privacy member Liz Marmo took the floor to present the issue. “I’m very thankful for David,” Dr Mourik said. “He’s been an enormous supporter ever since we first began on the first day of taking petitions in QEII Square. He gave us his total support. “Liz Marmo is a lady who lived in Wodonga and was angry she couldn’t sign the petition and said she wanted to help any way she could, so she joined our Rights To Privacy Group and, out

of her own initiative, she thought of having the rally and set it up.” AlburyCity mayor Kevin Mack supported the rally and the organisers’ rights to free speech, but also pointed out there might be some irony in the situation. “It’s interesting they are probably going to apply for a permit to do that, which the pro-life organisation do every Thursday,” he said. “So, in fact, what the prochoicers say they shouldn’t be doing, they’re doing themselves. “I think everyone’s entitled to a voice. Under the constitution it’s freedom of speech and they have the freedom to do that here in Albury. More power to them. “Whether it will achieve anything, I don’t know. It’s an interesting outcome. “Maybe the message to the other group is ‘you can do your stuff in QEII Square as effectively as what you’re doing down there.’ “A level of mediation with both parties needs to occur where there’s a bit of give and take and the interests of the young girls are paramount in this discussion.” Dr Mourik said the idea of the rally was not something he originally considered. “A lot of people don’t like coming to a rally and when I first heard it I thought ‘I don’t do placards, I don’t do slogans’,” he said. “But it keeps it in the public eye and it demonstrates very clearly how many people are absolutely put off by the protesters invading people’s privacy.”

Young and old marched and stood in QEII Square.

The Rights To Privacy Rally marched from Englehardt Street, up Dean Street and into QEII Square.

Proud protesters attended with numerous placards.

Simply the best choice of LAND. Both sides of the border.

Make fear redundant

Download our Digital epaper at: alburywodonga.starcommunity.com.au/epaper/

By KRYSTEN MANUEL

BEING made redundant is a growing fear among many of us - a fear 142 people recently realised just days ago as Lavington’s DSI Holdings’ parent company announced its closure in October. A small consolation can be found in Albury’s first Redundancy Support Network, which began in March and has proven very successful. “I was made redundant a few years back,” founder Heidi Neumeister said. “I had a contract ending in December so I knew I had a bit of time to get this up and running and I thought that if I don’t do it now I never will. “The idea was the group itself would be made up of people who have been made redundant to provide that support for each other.” The support provided has proven to be useful in two ways - emotional support and contacts to find work again. “When people have been through something they have a lot more empathy, they understand what it’s like and by sharing those experiences with other people who have been through it they know they aren’t go-

ing to be judged, they know people actually understand and they can share the things that have worked and the things that haven’t,” Ms Neumeister said. “The other side of support is that, for me, my experience of finding work has been a lot through my own networks. “So I thought if people could tap into their networks and build up a broader network as well, the same opportunities could come their way as well.” Wodonga woman Maria Berry has been attending the group since its inception. “My story started with working in retail in High Street Wodonga and I guess with the downturn in retail, particularly in women’s fashion and clothing at the moment and the roadworks, things were really tough,” she said. “I was working for a small business. The writing was on the wall about how serious it was actually getting so I made the call, I put my hand up and stepped down. There were a couple of other staff members there and I just felt I had more chance of regaining work than they would at that time. “I had no idea how hard it would

be and how long it would take to get other work. I started the process of applying online and it was a nightmare. I just thought ‘I’ll walk in to something,’ but it didn’t happen. “Heidi came into the shop one day shopping and she spoke about this redundancy group. So I thought I’d go to the first meeting and I’d be there just to support her. I had no idea I would go to the meeting and be a part of it.” Ms Berry said a myriad of benefits had come from her attending the group, not the least of which being the emotional support. “What I’ve found is the network of people that have come out with this, it’s not just about finding another job, it’s a loss of confidence,” she said. “It’s people who have been made redundant several times or they’ve had to put their hand up, even if it’s a voluntary redundancy, it still can be quite a journey. “I found from this group the first meeting was just amazing. When everyone started to talk the feeling in the room was ‘I know how you feel.’ Straight away it was that link. Now I understand you don’t know how it feels unless you’ve been through it or are going through it yourself.

JUNCTION Support Service has received a helping hand in its programs to support vulnerable young people in the Wodonga community. Bing Lee, the newest addition to the Wodonga region, identified the important contribution that JSS provides working with youths, particularly providing supported accommodation and driving skills and education to help gain employment, Bing Lee Wodonga Manager Anthony Cowan said.

COMPETITION

He said Bing Lee would assist JSS in delivering programs and services that enabled young people to achieve their full potential. This week they donated brand-new appliances and furnishings to reinvigorate the ‘Kids Under Cover’ property in Wodonga, a home run by JSS that houses four people at a time between the ages of 15-18 years who are homeless and are currently engaged in education. “We discovered that the Kids Under Cover property was in desperate need of an improvement, particularly to make it more comfortable and homely for the young people that live there, so we put our hand up to help turn the house into a more comfortable home,” Anthony Cowan said. “The new partnership JSS has established with Bing Lee helps us maintain our work in the community. We are very grateful for their support - an upgrade of the Kids Under Cover property has been on the top of our list of priorities for some time, unfortunately we just haven’t had the funds or resourcing to make it happen on our own,” said Katharine Hodgens, Youth Services Manager,

Junction Support Services. There has been no funding for maintenance of the ‘Kids Under Cover’ residence since it was obtained in 1994 and consequently the property has had no upgrades or improvements since it was built. Bing Lee’s contribution will have a large impact on the lives of the young people who are gaining their independence so that they can develop the life skills to enable them to become productive members of the community. The package donated by Bing Lee includes two new fridges, a freezer, an oven, washing machine, microwave, toaster, kettle, digital television, blu-ray, a new lounge, rug and white paint to repaint the walls. Bing Lee will continue to work with JSS help to sustain the good work they carry out in the community, providing support as a long-term community partner. The company is also sponsoring the Re-engagement and Pathways Program, run by JSS and will establish an internship program for participants in the course at the Wodonga store beginning in July.

“I can see this group doing so much for a lot of people. It’s not just about finding another job. “I have actually picked up some part-time work. It’s a big change, it’s a big adjustment and it’s going to take time. I have a job, so I’m very very lucky.” The group has invited several guest speakers on board, who have all offered up their advice and assistance. “In the first meeting we discussed what the priorities are and what we need to look at,” Ms Neumeister said. “One of those was Centrelink, so we had them come and talk to the group about different timeframes of where they can access different levels of support. “We also had Wodonga TAFE come and talk to us about retraining and what other options are available. “I’ve also been speaking with a few employers and we have some coming on board to come and talk to them about the diversity they have within their own workforce and the benefits they have from employing mature age (workers).” For more information call 0417 488 546.

Towns’ education on ice ALBURY and Wodonga councils, cross-border health agencies and police from both sides of the border joined forces to host a free community forum on methamphetamine last Wednesday. “It went very well,� AlburyCity mayor Kevin Mack said. “There was 135 people in attendance and I think the information was well received. “The one thing that did come out of the discussion was there’s a distinct lack of rehabilitation services available in Albury Wodonga for drug victims and unfortunately services are having to put them in a holding pattern for too long for finding a bed for them in capital cities or even in Wagga. It’s not good enough.� The forum comes after ANEX, a drug-harm minimisation organisation, ran a series of forums around the state, including at Benalla. While many local residents were keen to attend the forum, they were unable to take the day to travel to attend, and so a working committee was

formed to present a similar forum closer to home. A report by Turning Point on the extent of the problem and the effects on ambulance services prompted the working group to respond to the call by Dr Belinda Lloyd that “government health agencies, law enforcement, community groups, business and local residents must come together to address these issues and discuss possible options�. Presenters included drug and alcohol counsellors Carmen Colley and Bianca Deuis, mental health and drug and alcohol clinical leader Alan Fisher and representatives from the Albury and Wodonga police forces. Police representatives spoke about arrest rates and statistics related to the drug. “Information provided by police on both sides of the Border would indicate it is the drug of choice and there is a significant growth in this space,� Cr Mack said. “Over a 12-month period they’ve had three or four times the number of

convictions or apprehensions for supplying this particular substance. Last year they (Albury police) had 20 in a month, this year they had 80 or 90 and there’s similar numbers in Wodonga. “The difference between ice and your standard amphetamine is of course its purity and the way it’s ingested. It gives a significant high and people start to feel a sense of euphoria that becomes addictive. “Your standard concentration of amphetamine is around 15 per cent, ice recovered locally is around 80 per cent.� The forum, held at The Cube Wodonga, covered methamphetamine use, the effects and risks, treatment and systems and the extent of the problem on the Border as well as dispelling some myths surrounding the drug. Wodonga mayor Cr Rodney Wangman said the forum was part of both councils’ push to work together on issues affecting both communities. “Some issues affect our wider community and are not constrained by a border, and neither should our actions

An information evening at The Cube on the current drug of choice ‘ice’ has proven to be extremely beneficial for community members and council members alike. on those issues,� Cr Wangman said. “We are pleased to be working with AlburyCity to be able to bring this together for our communities.� Cr Mack agreed, saying it was an important step in looking for solutions. “I know first-hand from my experi-

ence as a policeman that ‘ice’ destroys lives, families and communities,� he said. “Its impact is devastating and all levels of government and community groups must work together to find a solution.�

Tip rubbish gets turned into pure energy

AlburyCity mayor Kevin Mack says the new facility at the Albury Waste Management Centre is of all-round benefit to the community.

A NEW facility installed at the Albury Waste Management Centre is set to transform harmful landfill gases into electricity, reducing greenhouse emissions by 46,800 tonnes per year and generating enough electricity for 1,200 homes. The facility will also come at no cost to ratepayers. LMS Energy has teamed with AlburyCity to install the groundbreaking technology at council’s Lavington facility. “We’re continually looking at

ways we can improve our waste management while reducing our impact on the environment,� AlburyCity mayor Kevin Mack said. “This new technology will help us achieve significant reductions in our emissions while pumping electricity back into the grid. It’s a great initiative and a model I hope will become standard practice in facilities Australia-wide. “There’s six councils who bring their waste to the facility, so the regional footprint is quite significant and this particular project is having

a significant impact upon what’s in the landfill already but what will be there in the future. “So that brings to question the benefit of having organic waste removed from that equation because organic waste is one of the chief drivers of methane and toxic gas. “My position is, if we’re looking at the future we need to consider organic waste as an alternative and we need to look at other ways of dealing with that waste, which is the proposition at Gerogery through Cleanaway. It’s unfortunate that the

will is not part of the equation at the moment because it’s the future of our communities - that we deal with that waste appropriately.� The 1.123 megawatt energy generation module was installed to allow for the extraction and combustion of landfill gas. Instead of being emitted into the atmosphere, the landfill gas is used as fuel to power an internal combustion engine and generate base-load electricity 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Big band, big night By KRYSTEN MANUEL THE Glenn Miller Orchestra came to Albury last week, providing the Border audience with a sentimental journey down memory lane on the eve of the Glenn Miller Orchestra’s 77th anniversary. The show featured the world-famous Glenn Miller Orchestra, The Moonlight Serenade Singers and The Broadway Swing Dancers presenting great big band hits, as well as the original Glenn Miller arrangements, the music of The Andrews Sisters, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and the romantic World War II melodies made famous by Vera Lynn. Added to the already fantastic line-up was music from the library of The Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band performed by the orchestra, including the original arrangement of The St Louis Blues March. After 77 years world-wide, the music was received enthusiastically to a crowd of young, old and everyone in between.

The Glenn Miller Orchestra in full swing.

Flexibility Online ADVERTISEMENT

THE Albury Wodonga Community College (AWCC) offers some fantastic online business courses specifically tailored to your desired outcomes. Whether you work but want to up-skill and don’t think you have time to attend class, or even if you want to make your gap year count, try the AWCC online options. “We offer from Cert III right through to a graduate certificate, which vary depending on whether it’s businesses or businesses administration,” AWCC general manager Anna Speedie said. “We’ve had the business courses online for several years now and we have clients from all over Australia. “The great thing about it is we have full time tutors available on the phone and via email. While you aren’t studying in a classroom the support levels are really terrific in terms of turn-around and response and actually being able to talk to someone if you get stuck or need some clarification. That can be different for other providers. “Talk to one of our specialists. We tailor the course to the specific needs of what you’re trying to achieve.

“There’s so many different units you can do and the most important thing is we actually try and address the outcomes someone is after – whether it be employment or a specific skill. “Our face to face courses tend not to be so tailored because you can’t offer every option for every student, but when it’s online it’s very specific to the individual and we tailor it by asking lots of questions of a student so it is catered specifically to them.” AWCC student Yana studied online during her GAP year to improve her business and computer skills in preparation of University. The course assisted in gaining part-time employment to help save for University life. “The tutors were amazing, providing me with great study skills which have helped me during my first year of Uni,” she said. “They really pushed to get the best out of me.” Holli also undertook an AWCC business course. She wanted to get work so enrolled online and within a few weeks had gained new employment. “It opened my opportunities up for the future,” she said.

“Studying online was great as I could complete my course whilst working and my employer is really supportive of my study. “The tutors were really helpful and encouraged me the whole way through.” Ms Speedie encourages

prospective students to call the AWCC and speak to one of their specialists to see just how easy it can be to find the course you need in the time you have. “Even if someone isn’t quite sure about what they want to do, be it business, community services

or children’s services, ring up and talk to one of our specialists,” she said. “Our teams are here to help define what level of course you need to be doing and what the opportunities and options are.”

Over 55’s... Making final plans that count AUSTRALIANS agree it’s best to plan for the worst, but are failing to turn those plans into action, according to a new Palliative Care Australia survey. While 82 per cent said it was important or very important to have plans in place should anything unfortunate happen to them, the numbers who had actual plans in place fell far short of this mark. Released to mark National Palliative Care Week, the online survey of over 1,000 Australians who had recently lost a loved one, found that just five per cent of respondents had made an advance care plan. Only one third were aware that an advance care plan sets out how someone would like to be cared for at the end of their life. Australians aren’t just dropping the ball when it comes to advance care planning - numbers in all forms of planning - financial, legal, and even organ donation - were surprisingly low. Of those that did have plans, only 59 per cent said their plans reflected their current circumstances, and one in three thought their loved ones wouldn’t have the information they’d need to carry out their wishes at the end of their life. “Let’s face it, you only die once - and you should be able to have quality end of life care,” Palliative Care Australia chief executive officer Dr Yvonne Luxford said. “But your loved ones will need support and guidance to make this happen, and right now plans are falling far short of what’s needed. “Facing the death of a loved one is incredibly difficult. We know that for most, the priority is doing what their loved ones would want. But without some sort of plan or even discussion, trying to figure this out makes a tough time even more difficult. “The kindest thing you can do is make plans

Have your say - it’s your life! so your own wishes are met, and so those caring for you know what you want when your time comes.” Clearly, communication and information remain a barrier to Australians receiving end of life care that respects their values and choices. Over half of respondents felt that they did not have

enough information to carry out the wishes of a loved one who had recently died. Overall two thirds of respondents felt confident/very confident that their loved ones would have enough information to carry out their wishes at the end of their life. “Australians are failing to talk about the health

care they want at the end of their life,” Dr Luxford said. “Less than half have spoken with their partner; only one in four have spoken with their children; and one in 10 have spoken with their GP. This lack of conversation and discussion is likely to impact the choice and quality of end of life care for Australians. “Only one in two respondents indicated that their loved one was able to be cared for in the place of their choice at the end of their life, with half dying in a hospital and one in four dying at home. “The fact is that palliative care is everyone’s business - there’s a role for partners, parents, children, friends and family, and the medical community to start discussions on how they would like to spend their end of life.” This year, National Palliative Care Week activities will shine a light on the Australian medical professionals - general practitioners, medical specialists, allied health professionals and nurses - who give their time to palliative care to ensure quality care at the end of life for all. “These staff are the unsung heroes; assisting Australians and their families through one the most difficult moments in our lives to enhance quality of life and ensure people can die the way they want,” Dr Luxford said. “So we’re calling on Australians everywhere to help those around them - do a bit of planning for when the time comes. Talk to your loved ones about what you’d want, speak to your GP. Visit the PCA website at www.palliativecare.org.au, download and complete an advance care plan. Make sure your details are up to date. After all, you only die once, so you might as well have your say in it.”

The loans are based on standards of practice set by Good Shepherd Microfinance and backed by the National Australia Bank. Refrigerators, washing machines and furniture have traditionally been the items purchased with NILS loans. Loans are available to people dependent on Centrelink payments and who have the capacity to repay the loan over 12 months. The scheme will end on 30 June this year, presumably as a money saving measure. “This was most disappointing as the scheme had just build up community awareness and momentum and its cancellation would save a small amount of money in the overall context of the budget,” UnitingCare Wodonga chairperson Geoff Moar said Since September 2013, UnitingCare Wodonga has participated in a scheme that subsidised the cost of energy-efficient household appliances bought by people on low incomes using a No Interest Loan. Under the Home Energy Saver Scheme (HESS) the Commonwealth Government provided a significant rebate to encourage the purchase of energy-efficient refrigerators, washing machines and some other appliances. This meant that low income people who were very vulnerable to increasing electricity costs could save on the initial price and continue to benefit by reduced electricity

Pensioners are being encouraged to use the HESS if they need to replace major items such as heating or hot water systems before 30 June. charges for the life of the appliance. The scheme was introduced by the previous Labor Government and was intended to run until June 2015. “The loans can be life-changing,” UnitingCare Wodonga’s NILS co-ordinator Pat Welch said. “Purchasing major household items without getting into a cycle of high interest payments and continuing debt can make a huge difference to families struggling to make end meet on Centrelink payments. Hire purchase, rental schemes and payday loans are relatively easy to get when someone is confronted with a major expense, but the high interest and fees can make the cost crippling in the longer term.” Pensioners who own their own homes can obtain a loan to install an air-conditioner or to replace hot water systems or heating appliances. Some recent examples

AGE CONCERN ALBURY WODONGA Living it, Loving it

illustrate how the combined NILS and HESS schemes work. Margaret, an age pensioner, owns her own unit and found the summer heat very tiring. She manages her income very well but was reluctant to spend her savings to put in a split-system. By purchasing the unit with a NILS loan she was able to install a very efficient unit in her living area for $1200; a saving of around $1,000 as a result of the HESS rebate. Chairperson of UnitingCare Wodonga said that the NILS formed an essential part of the suite of services the agency offered to low income people in Wodonga. This includes emergency food relief and other material assistance, as well as a financial counselling service. Through its association with Saint Stephen’s Op Shop, the agency can also assist people in crisis with cheap clothing, bedding and basic furniture. The generous rebates available through the HESS scheme will be available until 30 June this year. Pensioners who own their own homes are encouraged to consider using the scheme if they need to replace major items such as heating, cooling or hot water systems. Wodonga residents are welcome to inquire at the UnitingCare Office at St Stephen’s Uniting Church, on the corner of Beechworth Road and Nilmar Avenue, any day between 9.30am and 12.30pm. NILS are also available in Albury, Corryong and Mt Beauty and Benalla, and there are also specialised programs for women and indigenous people.

Over 55’s... Time to act to beat price rise GOVERNMENT reforms will make aged care more expensive for many people after 30 June, so people contemplating moving into an aged care residence should act soon according to Grange Aged Care Albury Wodonga. Grange Aged Care Albury Wodonga managing director Paul Phillips says the Living Longer Living Better legislation will introduce a new assets test which has cost implications for many prospective residents. “There are other changes which we also want people to be aware of and so far, publicity about the changes has been minimal,” he said. “We think it’s important to get people to speak to their financial and other advisers as soon as possible, as the legislation allows for those who move to an aged care residence before 30 June to continue to be covered by the current arrangements and not be affected by the changes.” Grange Aged Care recently held information sessions for Border and north east advisers and families to better un-

Considering aged care? Act soon! derstand the legislation. The information was presented by Matt Armstrong from Complete Wealth, and member firm and principal of Genesys Wealth Advisors. “We have had a spike in inquiries as a result of the information sessions. Given the steps involved when moving into residential aged care, discussions need to start soon,” Mr Armstrong said. “As the residents will only be grandfathered under the current rules if they move in before by 30 June, it is extremely important to allow enough time to

be assessed for aged care, find an appropriate facility, organise your finances and move in to the new accommodation.” Mr Armstrong said that with the new assets and income test including the value of the family home, capped at $144,500, seeking professional advice well before 30 June could be worth a lot to anyone thinking of moving. Grange Aged Care’s Albury and Wodonga residences are locally owned and operated, both with 24-hour nursing care and a director of nursing on each site in each purpose-built residence.

Men need some help

Prostate supporters

ALL this emphasis on the health of boys and men – what’s that about? They’re all right, aren’t they? In many cases, the answer is no. A boy born in Australia in 2010 has a life expectancy of 78.0 years while a baby girl born at the same time could expect to live to 82.3 years old. Right from the start, boys suffer more illness, more accidents and die earlier than their female counterparts. Men take their own lives at four times the rate of women (that’s five men a day, on average). Accidents, cancer and heart disease all account for the majority of male deaths. Furthermore, there are specific populations of marginalised men for whom the health status is far worse even than this. These marginalised groups include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men, refugees, men in prison or newly released from prison and men of low socio-economic standing. Men’s Health Week (9-15 June) has a direct focus on the health impacts of men’s and boys’ environments. It serves to ask two questions: What factors in men’s and boy’s environments contribute to the status of male health? And how can we turn that around and create positive environments in men’s and boy’s lives? Men’s Health Week promoters believe the best way to improve male health is for local services, groups and individuals to tackle the most important health issues relevant to local blokes. The groups decide what the health priorities are and Men’s Health Week help you showcase their efforts, plus provide some tips and ideas along the way from health experts.

GETTING a man to the doctor is generally a challenge, getting them to a prostate check is even more confronting. And if their worst fears are realised, what then? Feelings of fear, anxiety and confusion are common in almost all cases – this is where Albury Wodonga Prostate Cancer Support Group (AWPCSG) can help. “Our main aim is to provide men with someone to be there prediagnosis, during and after they’ve been treated for prostate cancer, just to give them some direction as to where they go,” AWPCSP founder David Ryan said. “They’ve spoken to their urologist and their GP, but a lot of them come along just to talk to other people that have been through the

By KRYSTEN MANUEL

ordeal and come out the other side. “When they come along they can invariably talk to someone who has had prostate cancer in one way, shape or form and varying types of treatment. “We help by being a shoulder to lean on. I have blokes ring me up and they’re crying, they’re absolutely distraught. When they leave, they’ve had a chance to sit in a confidential round table discussion and leave there with a lot better outlook on the whole thing. “Quite a few blokes bring their partners along. The partners are rapt they finally got them to come along because they’re living with someone with steam coming out their ears because they don’t know which way to turn.” Mr Ryan started the group in

2009, which now meets every second Tuesday of each month at the Commercial Club in Dean Street, at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. “I had my operation in 2008 and I went looking for some help,” he said. “I was a bit down after the operation and there wasn’t a support group here. We had a couple of public meetings that started up in early 2009 and it has grown steadily since then.” Mr Ryan said the group strongly advocated getting men to the doctors to be checked for signs of prostate cancer, before it was too late. “Our main aim is to try and convince men to get off their backsides and go and get checked,” he said. “No matter how hard we try there’s always someone who thinks

it’s not worth it or something. Our group is very committed to getting men to go and get checked. “If nothing happens, great, but if they do find something they realise they could have paid the ultimate penalty. “We can lead the horse to water but we can’t make it drink – they actually have to go and do it themselves.” The AWPCSG also encourage members to stay and share their experiences with others who may be struggling, as Mr Ryan said – “the support group needs support too.” “We also try and retain them, so I say ’if we helped you, could you help by coming back – even if it’s three or four meetings’ – it’s just joining in and giving us a bit of support going forward,” he said.

Quit in 60 minutes guarantee of the usual side-effects involved with his program. “Most people won’t crave smoking, you won’t struggle, you won’t crave food and gain weight, you won’t feel nervous or fidgety,” Mr Moffat said. “You just plain will feel good and you will not fail again! “I know of no other plan, program, or product that has that track record, or guarantees it.” Mr Moffat claims that smoking

IT ONLY takes 60 minutes to quit smoking, according to Border Quick Quit’s Wayne Moffat. Mr Moffat is a clinical hypnotherapist and uses a combination of advanced hypnotherapy and neurolinguistic programming (NLP) for his Quit Cigarettes In 60 Minutes program to help smokers ditch their habit for life. He offers a lifetime guarantee for the service, claiming a 95.6 percent success rate and says there are none

is not a physical chemical addiction but a mental habit that can be removed in as little as one hour. The rising cost of smoking is making life more and more difficult for smokers, with the average 20 per day smoker spending around $4000 a year on cigarettes. Add to that the adverse effects on the health of a smoker and the stigma now attached to the habit and the opportunity to quit in just an hour seems almost too good to be true.

But with such a high success rate Mr Moffat said he could afford to offer a lifetime guarantee - and if a client started smoking again he said they would do a free back-up session to help them become a nonsmoker for life. He said the combination of the two techniques helped by dispelling the myths about addiction to cigarettes. NLP and putting new habits in place under hypnosis ensured the program’s success.

Roadshow joins in cancer fight By KRYSTEN MANUEL THE Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) will be bringing its Rural Prostate Cancer Education Roadshow to Albury for the first time this month. A specialised team of men’s health experts from Albury and Wodonga will present two comprehensive education sessions to help raise awareness of prostate cancer within both local healthcare professionals and the broader community. The roadshow is part of PCFA’s commitment to improving prostate cancer support and services to remote areas, which are often the places that experience the highest impact of the disease. The Albury/Wodonga based team comprised of urologists, Dr Henry Duncan and Dr Jonathan Lewin, radiation oncologist Eddy Ong and clinical nurse specialist Carole Glennon will deliver the presentations on the themes of ’living better with prostate cancer’ and the ’treatment and management matters for prostate cancer in the local area.’ “The health professionals talk about the different treatment and management matters

for prostate cancer specifically to the general practitioners and other health professionals in the area because there are a lot of conflicting theories in terms of what needs to happen when patients are being referred and what stages they need to be referred on,” PCFA’S Rural Education Roadshow project officer Jessica Roberts said. “It’s mainly to make sure everyone’s on the same page in terms of treatment and pain management. “The other session we have is for community members which is a bit of a general introduction – what prostate cancer is, how we detect it and how you can manage your prostate cancer. “Having access to the specialists is a really powerful tool for people to use in terms of getting the correct information. “It’s best for people to come along if they do have any questions, even for partners and carers who have a member of their

family or their wider network who’s affected by prostate cancer, just to give an idea about what actually goes on with the men and how they can support them better. “The roadshow is also a good way to support our local support groups – there’s a very active support group for prostate cancer in Albury Wodonga.” For more information on the Albury sessions or PCFA’s Roadshow Program, please contact PCFA on 1800 22 00 99 or roadshow@pcfa.org.au The community education session is on Monday 16 June from 7pm-9pm in Stanley Room A at the Commercial Club Albury. Light refreshments are provided. The healthcare professional education session is on Tuesday 17 June from 7pm - 9.30pm in Stanley Room C, dinner is provided (please advise of any dietary requirements).

Men and mental health IN THE past year, alarming new research has shown almost 20 per cent of young Australian men do not think life is worth living. The Young and Well Co-operative Research Centre national survey, which is supported by beyondblue and Movember, revealed around 300,000 males aged between 16 and 25 felt this way. The survey also found nearly one in 10 young men thought about taking their own life in the past year and that more than four in 10 experienced psychological distress. However, it goes on to identify the important role online technology can play in helping distressed young men and how engagement with them could be strengthened by modifying technology to suit their online behaviour. Beyondblue CEO Kate Carnell said Australian policy-makers must read the survey and consider its recommendations in order to tackle the mental crisis facing young men in Australia. “The results of this research are deeply concerning and emphasise the ongoing need for a focus on young men,” she said. “It makes numerous, evidence-based recommendations about how to improve online services for young men that must be seriously considered. This includes extending the operating hours of online services to better match the hours that distressed young men are online, and incorporating things such as music and video game content into the services to match their interests. “The survey also identifies the need for ensuring every school has a social networking policy, ensuring all tertiary campuses provide mental health after hours and during holidays and the need for government to provide financial incentives for workplaces that prioritise e-mental health. “Beyondblue has launched several campaigns and programs to help boost the mental health of young men, including Man Therapy, which helps men deal with depression and anxiety in a humor-

One in five young Australian men do not think life is worth living. ous way, and SenseAbility, which is a strengthbased resilience program delivered in the classroom.” Young and Well Co-operative Research Centre CEO associate professor Jane Burns, lead researcher in the study, said young men often did not seek help and many young men were not using services until they reached crisis point. “Technology presents our best prospect yet to work directly with young men to create new ways of engagement, new models of care, and greater empowerment for young men in their management of stress and life pressure,” she said.

How to preserve a husband

Be careful in the selection- do not choose too unripe or too old. Best results are obtained if he has been reared in a healthy atmosphere. Some insist in keeping him in a pickle. Others prefer to keep him in hot water. Such treatment, however, makes the husband sour, hard and sometimes bitter. Many wives have found that even poor varieties can be rendered tender and good by a garnish or patience, the sweetening of a smile and the avouring of a kiss, to taste. Wrap him in a mantle of charity, place him over a warm, steady re of devotion, and serve with peaches and cream. Don’t miss the upcoming PCFA education roadshow.

Supreme soul sounds By TANIA PHILLIPS LISTENING to the music of the Supremes is almost a rite of passage these days with teenaged girls wearing PJs and socks still belting out Supremes tracks into their microphone hair-brushes across the US and indeed around the world just like their mothers and maybe their grandmothers. It’s something Kaaren Ragland, a member of the Supremes in the late ’70s and ’80s, has no doubt still happens - because she sees those girls at her shows. Kaaren is now one of three voices in The Sounds Of The Supremes - a trio of talented singers who have been bringing the sounds of The Supremes to fans - old and young - around the world. “We are not a tribute act more a spin-off group,” she said. Kaaren Ragland joined the group in 1977 singing alongside both the legendary Mary Wilson and Diana Ross until Ross left the group in 1978. In 1989 she formed The Sounds of The Supremes and when her current partners on stage Kathy Merrick and Althea Burkhalter joined the group in 1997 the band went from strength to strength. But it’s the music that is the real star - as Kaaren says “quite universal” and now transcends any barriers of age with everyone from young children to

their grandmothers and fathers. “Our fans are all ages. I’m astounded. At some gigs you see really little kids out front dancing and copying all our moves. “I think ‘how do you know all the songs - did your mamma or granny teach you’.” And, of course, what she calls “the love songs” are still the most requested - Baby Love, Stop in the Name Of Love, You Can’t Hurry Love. Here in Australia there is the timely reminder of the potentancy of the songs through the recent Channel Nine series Love Child - named after one of the Supremes biggest hits. “You’ve told me something, girl, I didn’t know,” Kaaren said of the new series. “Did they use the song? We will have to make sure we play it!” Not that there was any doubt. The Sounds of the Supremes will be playing all of those songs that made the group so popular - Stop! in the Name of Love, Baby Love, Where Did Our Love Go, Love Child, You Keep Me Hanging On, Nothing But Heartaches, Love is Here and Now You’re Gone, Falling in and Out of Love, Reflections, Stoned Love, You Can’t Hurry Love, Come See About Me, Back in My Arms Again, I’m Gonna Make You Love Me, Floy Joy, Nathan Jones, Automatically Sun-

shine, Up the Ladder to the Roof, Love is Like an Itching in My Heart, Someday We’ll Be Together, I Hear a Symphony... and many more classic Motown songs. Kaaren, who is married to an Australian, said she is looking forward to bringing the show - unique in the fact that all three singers share the lead vocals throughout the night - back to Australia. “It’s actually been a while,” she said from her Los Angeles home this week. “I think the last time was in 2006 we are really looking forward to it. “We use to try and get out there (to Australia) every two years but time has got away from us,” she said. When she described her year which includes tours of the US, Europe and around the world - it’s little wonder that it’s been a while since they have been to Australia. It is a show that London’s What’s On described as incomparable energypacked and a “a non-stop bravura performance of immense vitality” recreating “perfectly the frenetic style and sound of the original line-up”. In 1998 the mayor of Springfield, Illinois, declared 21 August the Sounds of the Supremes’ Day and the same year the Australian entertainment industry honoured the group with a prestigious Mo Award. Radio Regenborgen (Germany)

The Sound of Supreme. presented the group with its 2001 Lifetime Achievement Award “for keeping the music alive”. Six years later in 2007 the ladies released the album Live At Highclere Castle, better known to us as the location of Downton Abbey, in England.

OKAY, so I didn’t laugh at every joke that came up, but surely it’s worth more than the rating 33 per cent the trusted critics of Rotten Tomatoes gave it. I feel Seth MacFarlane’s second crack at writing and directing a film was just as good as his last (Ted). It was a film made to be laughed with, thanks to some clever jokes surrounding life in the wild, wild West and some not so clever ones surrounding all types of bodily fluids - but funny all the same. A Million Ways To Die In The West isn’t as self explanatory as it may seem. The title hints at the dangers of living back in the days when your quack of a doctor could accidentally kill you by getting a bird to peck at your wounds to ’clean them out’. Throughout the film, extreme but hilarious references to MacFarlane’s perception of the West in the 1800s are explored - my personal favourite surrounding photo-

graphs of the time. The main character of the story is a humble (and rightly so) sheep farmer - Albert (MacFarlane). Albert is a coward. He’s quite intelligent but lacks even a shred of self esteem, leading to his break up with the selfish, conceited Louise (Seyfried) after he backs out of a gunfight. Hopeless and lost, Albert is quietly stunned when the beautiful, confident but mysterious Anna (Theron) rides

into town and decides to help him win back his ex. Inevitably, they begin to fall in love but things become complicated when Anna’s husband, the notorious outlaw Clinch (Neeson) comes to town, ready to reclaim his bride.

Britton’s eyeful of stand-up By KRYSTEN MANUEL THE Sydney Comedy Festival will present a hand-picked showcase of some of the best and brightest artists featured at the 2014 festival. It features a killer line-up of award winning and box office smashing artists from Australia and the world. Highlights from the Showcase will include the low-fi com-rock super-stars Smart Casual, the brooding storytelling of Michael Workman, the charming John Conway, the charmingly funny Mike Goldstein and the random stylings of Nikki Britton. Britton is performing her third Sydney Comedy Festival, heading to Wodonga this Saturday, and took some time to talk to NewsWeekly about the dirty life and times that are Nikki Britton. NW: “How did you make the transition from being a funny person to becoming a comedian?” NB: “I started about three and a half years ago. I was an actor before that and I sort of fell into stand-up comedy by accident. “I was drunk at a friend’s house rattling off some story and the friend I was with said ‘you should be a comedian,’ and I said ‘oh yeah, right, I’ll do that... not a chance in hell’. “Then, unbeknown to me, she crept into the bedroom of the house we were staying at, went on

the internet and signed me up for the Royal Comedy Competition. “I got the confirmation email a few days later confirming my five minute spot and, of course, I s**t my pants. Then I thought ‘OK, I can do this!’ “I spoke about the soft spot I have for men with accents and the fact that a lot of people go overseas and come back with a random accent, usually from the UK. “I don’t really understand that... they have a two week stint in London and all of a sudden they have a bit of cockney in their accent - w*****s! “So I did the competition and all the right people saw the gig and kept booking me and I haven’t looked back!” NW: “What will you be covering in your visit to Albury?” NB: “I’m not sure what I’ll be covering yet. It depends on how the day goes, what other people are doing for the show or what I see when I get to Albury. “I have a few bits and pieces, I talk about getting older and being in that stage of life where all your friends are having babies and you’re getting drunk. “I do voices and accents and interpretive dances so you can bet there will be something like that in there. “It also depends on what the town is like when we get to it, I have some pretty cheeky material

but if the people of Albury Wodonga are very refined and lovely I probably won’t bust that out.” NW: “I wouldn’t be concerned about that.” NB: “Oh good! NW: “So where do you get your material from?” NB: “A lot of it is personal stories... I have crazy s**t happening to me, all sorts of bizarre situations. “Luckily my life is crazy and random enough that I can just get on stage and tell people my perceptions of what’s happened to me and that seems to be entertaining.” NW: “What sort of crazy stuff?” NB: “I wee’d in my own eye the other day by accident. It was a bit of a ricochet off the toilet seat situation. “I didn’t want to sit on the public toilet seat and then as I was weeing I missed the toilet and it went back into my face. “Normal people can make that stuff work and not wee in their eyes, but I’m not blessed like that.” Don’t miss Nikki Britton at The Cube, Wodonga, on Saturday 7 June at 7.30pm. Tickets are just $28 and can be purchased from http://www.thecubewodonga.com. au or call (02) 6022 9311.

Hilarious act Nikki Britton is coming to Wodonga with the Sydney Comedy Festival Roadshow this week.

WITH GEOFF HABERECHT OF TRU HIFI

3RD BIRTHDAY SALE!

Play ’em daily THERE would hardly be a day that I would not play music of Celtic Thunder and Martin Taylor. Celtic Thunder, without doubt the best Celtic group on the planet, and the world’s finest finger picking guitarist were both here in Albury Wodonga recently. On top of this The Magic Flute by Australian Opera Company is coming plus a host of current and past popular artists. With the explosion of music from the Jazz basement, SS&A club, the Commercial club plus the local hotel establishments, we now witness a live variety of music standards rarely seen in this area. Best and most of all the acts are at sold-out or near sold out, a guarantee that the A grade artists will continue to support the region. I had a recent trade-in of an excellent music system, albeit 15 years old, for a new quality theatre system which was more theatre than music. A question I asked at the time was ‘has music left your priorities?’ The answer was ‘no, I now get my music high from concerts and live music’. In this case, his musical taste had expanded from a Jimmy Barnes fan to jazz, folk and - shock horror - classical music. His source of music was now the iPod. Live music done right provides harmonics and aural space that moves the soul and provides the uplifting experience that can stay with you for days afterwards. In his case, Jimmy Barnes’ fondness was because he heard his music in an analogue way via vinyl records or with a CD player that had the ability to deliver a similar result to a live performance. For those that have copied some of their vinyl albums or CDs to MP3 it is not the same with the warmth and harmonics removed from

the enjoyment. If you copy your vinyl or CD music correctly it is not unusual to use 30 to 100 megabytes of storage to extract all of the information from a song, a far cry of the three or for megabytes an MP3 song tends to be. We have seen some enhancements with the evolving of separate DACS (digital to analogue convertors) for computers and digital playback units that once were only in CD players to make a CD player perform musically, this product has enhanced the music even on economy sound systems. For the person who has enjoyed music at a higher level, the compressed music source creates a dilemma as the music has lost its ability to provide the dynamics, harmonics, vitality and space in sound which can be created in a good music system on other sources. Keep your investment balanced and regardless of the standard you listen to, make the most from your investment. The best advice is to keep it all simple.

Leisure pleasure

ONE-AND-A-HALF acre block, in-ground pool, fire pit, 14x7 metre shed and three separate living areas - this impressive home was built for the family of leisure. Driving into 5 Lambourn Drive, beautifully landscaped gardens will greet visitors with its thick green grass and healthy, stylish plants, with clever in-ground sprinkling hidden carefully. The classy country look of the property is best celebrated by the large verandah that wraps around the rendered/ Hardiplank home - all features which play a part in economically keeping the home cool in summer and warm in winter. Sitting to the side is the oversize double remote controlled lock-up garage with merbau fence continuing to the boundary. Through the front door and to the right visitors will find the formal living room which is carpeted and finished with quality curtains and nine foot ceilings that continue throughout. To the left is the master bedroom which is king size and has a walk-through wardrobe that leads straight to the ensuite, which is complete with toilet, shower and vanity. Continuing through the house visitors will pass the study - a corner room which could easily be used as a spare bedroom if needed. The spacious, light filled kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher, oven and gas cooktop, plus kitchen island and internal access to the garage. The kitchen and living areas are open plan and both rooms enjoy the cosy combustion heater,

fans and sliding door access to the entertaining area. The home also features ducted heating and cooling throughout. Continuing on visitors will find the laundry which has ample storage and external access to the undercover washing line, the spacious bathroom and three queen-sized bedrooms. The bedrooms all offer built-in wardrobes and fans. Past this area will take visitors towards the rumpus room but not before passing the powder area (vanity is exposed for added convenience) and separate toilet - perfectly placed. The rumpus room is a large, airy room with outdoor access and makes an ideal space for kids to be kids and get all that extra energy out! The room also features an imitation gas fire. Outside the property really comes to life. The driveway runs all the way to the back shed - past the undercover entertaining area with outdoor fans and past the glorious salt water inground pool (fed by tank water), complete with a large paved area for lazing around in the warmer months. The shed itself has its own toilet and combustion heating, lending itself to the perfect manspace. In the very back yard, a massive expanse awaits the new owners - big enough to kick the footy and with the poles are already there just in case. This area boasts a chook pen, fire pit and view to the stunning Federation Hills.

“Property consumers, and in particular first homebuyers, should not sit back and let this happen. “The State Government must not increase land tax and stamp duty to plug budget holes. “We advocate for a broadening of the GST tax base and an increase in the GST rate. “This should replace the revenue losses from the abolition of the discriminatory and inefficient state taxes. “We do not support, and the community will not support, an increase in the GST to fund inefficiencies in Canberra.

THE New South Wales Government should not turn to the property market to rescue the upcoming State Budget, according to the Real Estate Institute of New South Wales. “The recent Federal Budget has put pressure on the NSW Budget, and Premier Mike Baird should not follow the lead of previous governments who have used the property market to raise additional revenue,” REINSW President Malcolm Gunning said. “The property market is just showing signs of recovery and not all areas are enjoying growth.

“We have called on other state property institutes, associations and franchisors to voice their support for tax reform and we have already received backing. “For too long the property market has been the State Government’s cash cow and property consumers are now saying enough is enough. “Already NSW can be expected to be at least $548 million over budget in transfer stamp duty collections alone for 2013-14. “Furthermore stamp duty rates have not been reviewed for 40 years.”

Craig, Jules just drop in By KRYSTEN MANUEL LOCAL skydiving champion Craig Bennett is on the hunt for more overseas success, after competing with the World Canopy Formation Specialist Team. It was part of a parachuting demonstration at the Anyang Aero Sports Tourism Festival in China this week. The team is comprised of 12 skydivers from the USA, New Zealand, Argentina and Australia. “This is my third trip to China with the team,” Craig said. “It was a smaller team this year with a more dynamic show. “I got to fly a spiralling smoke routine from 4,000 feet above the crowd with my teammate, Jules McConnel ... the spectators loved it!” The show ran for three days with helicopter formations, the Chinese national parachute accuracy team, Red Bull stunt planes, hot air balloons, paramotors and remote controlled aircraft as well as the World Team demonstration skydives. Bennett and McConnel will be heading overseas again in August for the World Skydiving Championships in Bosnia, along with team-mate Michael Vaughan, after breaking an Australian record twice at the National Skydiving Championships in York, WA. Their previous two-way Sequential Canopy Formation record of 27 points was set at the 2012 World Parachuting Championships in Dubai. The team scored 28 points on their second round of competition and 29 points on the seventh round. The team paired up with another team from Western Australia to compete in the four-

There’s lots of potential in this line-up.” McConnel said the team was hopeful for Bosnia after their success at the National Championships. “We just won our national championships which were held in York, WA, so now we’re going to represent Australia at the championships,” McConnel said. “There should be teams from around 20 different countries attending. “Our team has been competing for seven years together and represented Australia in the last four world championships. “Our discipline is canopy formation, where we open up

our parachutes straight away, link them together in a sequence the judges give us and we have to repeat that sequence within a minute of working time. “It’s the dark horse of disciplines in skydiving. We open up at a certain height, we break off at a certain height for safety, we’ve done over 1500 jumps together and never had any major incidents. Because we’re flying so close together and linking our parachutes so close together, a lot of people see it as dangerous, and sure - if you do it the wrong way it is, but we actually practise to do it properly. “We’ve received coaching from the world’s best and now we’re competing with the world’s best. We really enjoy it, we have a lot of fun.” The team is currently ranked third in the world and they are hoping for the best against top teams from France, Russia and the USA.

Local Sport RAMBO takes the hills By KRYSTEN MANUEL

THE Albury Wodonga Mountain Bikers (AWMB) travelled to Mt Beauty for the second round of the Riverina Alpine Mountain Bike Open - RAMBO, returning with fists full of points towards their dream of gold. The five-round series calls on all local mountain-biking clubs from the region, including Wagga Wagga, Mount Beauty, Bright, Beechworth and Albury Wodonga, to compete in a three-hour race - solo or in teams or in the 1.5 hour sport race. Albury Wodonga Mountain Bikers vice-president Shane Vanderwerf said the Border team performed extremely well, with Craig Metcalffe coming in third in the open section, Damian Gillard first in the 40+ section, Greg and Chris Boyle first in the teams section and Vanderwerf himself also taking out a first with Tristian Maciulis. “It’s five rounds and each round you earn points,” he explained. “It’s normally one round per month, the last round being in Albury Wodonga. At the final round the results are tallied and we have a presentation afternoon.” Vanderwerf said the quality of

riders in the Albury Wodonga side was outstanding, studded with two world-class riders. “A lot of the riders are at the pointy end,” he said. “Damian Gillard is a world-class rider. A few months ago he finished fourth in his age group along with Andy Kaye, who finished third in his age group, in the Worlds over 24 hours solo.” Vanderwerf said the Mount Beauty competition day was an exceptional day out, with good conditions and a typically friendly atmosphere. “It was fantastic, the conditions were beautiful,” he said. “The track was challenging, there was about 250 metres vertical gain each lap so it was quite a pointy track. “There was a lot of climbing to start and then it was really sweet conditions, nice flowing descents. It was tough, but it was really good. “It was excellent presentation from Albury Wodonga and everyone really enjoyed it. Friendly, fast, just a great event.” Vanderwerf said mountain biking culture in the area was rapidly growing thanks to healthy displays of sportsmanship and a welcoming atmosphere.

“The mountain biking culture in this area is growing and growing,” he said. “It’s competitive but it’s friendly. Everyone has such a high respect on the trails for people’s safety. “Both my kids race as well, they’re six and eight. I’m really going to nurture them to sticking with the sport because it’s such a great culture.” The next event on the calendar for AWMB is a Victoria Series event, coming up on 29 June at Nail Can Hill. The events include three and six-hour races. “The Vic Series is held by Mountain Bike Victoria and it’s a nine-race round across Victoria,” Vanderwerf said. “Riders who perform well go on to nationals. “We’ve hosted a round of this in June for the last four years, there’s normally about 200 riders. “It’s the state’s best riders but like any mountain biking event it’s open to novice and intermediate too. That’s probably one of the best things about mountain biking - you get to play on the same field as the best in the country. “There will be some big names there, for sure.”

O&M FOOTY2014

The leader of leaders Simon

Says with SIMON CORR JUST how important is a coach to a team? It possibly reads as a stupid question - after all if they were of no importance why would we even have them? I guess what I am trying to ask is just how much influence does a good coach have on a team? There are some teams that are made up of so many experienced players they could probably coach themselves, but the impact a really good coach can have on a team certainly should not be under-rated. I guess the best example of a difference a good coach can have has never been more evident than this year in the Melbourne Football Club. The Demons have been the basket case of the league for the last six years and it is no coincidence that an improved and more consistent performance has come this year under the reign of Paul Roos. Roos coached the Sydney Swans to a drought-breaking premiership and in fact consecutive grand finals and his influence on the Demons almost culminated in a victory over the top of the table Port Power over the weekend. Locally, in the Ovens and Murray, we have some fantastic coaches, some of whom have powerful lists to instruct and others not so, but I genuinely believe that all of them are good at their craft. The one coach however who this season stands out among the crowd is Jason Akermanis. To say that Nth Albury had a player exodus over the off-season would be an understatement and Aker found himself with a list of young and inexperienced footballers, many of whom still ride home on a school bus. The footballing public were expecting some demoralising hidings and I think everyone agreed that the Hoppers would be wooden spooners before they even played a game. Jason Akermanis didn’t see it like that. When Acker looked at his youthful playing group he saw a blank canvas that he could develop as he liked. He saw fresh-faced enthusiasm that would hang on his every word, he saw a team that under his guidance could

match it with anyone - and guide them he has. The Hoppers have won two games this season and have just narrowly lost another three. They have pushed Albury and last weekend almost took the scalp of the reigning premier, Yarrawonga. They play with pace and flamboyance and never give up. Jason Akermanis may have been the only one who knew what he had on his hands at the start of the year, but now we all do! After experiencing their first win for the season, the Myrtleford Alpine Saints will be keen for another taste when they host an inconsistent Wang Rovers. The Rovers were outplayed by Corowa last week and a slip-up at McNamara Reserve would severely jeopardise any finals aspirations. Poor old Wodonga, injury-ravaged and winless, and now to add salt to the wound they must play the powerhouse that is Albury. I wrote last weekend that the Tigers’ midfield is the best I have ever seen in the competition, and I see Wodonga Raiders coach Simon Bone agrees. The Tigers were ruthless in their demolition of the Raiders last week and I don’t expect them to be any less so against the Dogs. Setanta O’hAilpin has 22 goals in two games - look out! Match of the round may well be the contest between Corowa and Nth Albury. Corowa sit fourth on the ladder and both teams are exceptionally fit. This will be a highly-skilled, fastflowing game that should go right down to the wire. Yarrawonga host Lavington in another big test for the Panthers. After failing to match it with Albury the Panthers need to beat the Pigeons to keep their minor premiership aspirations alive. With Adam Prior out injured, there will be a heavier reliance on Justin Koschitzke who must carry on his good form from last week. Brendan Fevola was brilliantly held to just one goal last week by Dan Leslie - if James Saker can do the same he will give his team a real opportunity to win. In the final game, Wangaratta host the Wodonga Raiders in a game they will be expected to win, which makes it all the more dangerous.
