Celebrating 40 years of education in Wodonga THE Albury Wodonga Community College (AWCC) is celebrating it’s 40th anniversary this year. In 40 years the college has been open it has grown from strength to strength thanks to a plethora of dedicated staff and the generosity of many in terms of time and money. But success did not come easily. Consistent growth within the college called for growth in venues, staff, courses and funds needed, all of which came about through clever planning and hard work. Today, the AWCC boasts up to 120 equivalent full time workers, plus tutors, servicing over 5,000 knowledge-hungry students. “When the Community College first formed it really came out of grass roots community initiatives,” AWCC CEO Rodney Wangman said. “The 40th anniversary is quite significant considering it started in one very small dilapidated old building into the site that it’s become. Gone are the days of having a handful of students and one person running the facility. “In my mind it’s a significant community asset

and continues to provide a service to our community that wouldn’t otherwise be here.” The AWCC services all ages, from babies and toddlers in early education right through to seniors wanting to further their education and skill set. It offers community services and education courses that cover learning of all types and outcomes, with four separate divisions. “The Community College now has grown to the point where we have different divisions providing services across the community in a wide array of areas,” Mr Wangman said. “We have U3A and active aging groups, child care, Vocational Education and Training (VET), and our Independent School. “Community early years child care goes all the way out to remote and rural facilities that wouldn’t otherwise be provided because the populous is too small. “We have a full Vocation and Education Training program which gives people nationally accredited qualifications that allow them to go out and secure

work. “And our Independent School is about providing a different alternative from the normal education curriculum in the way it’s actually taught. “It’s a very unique area we entered into eight years ago ... We found there were a lot of kids missing out on education because they didn’t fit to the traditional model. “Our Independent School still runs to Victorian curriculum standards or a modified New South Wales curriculum, but it’s taught a little differently. We have counsellors to back kids up for when they need extra help and extra support, and really small class sizes mean they get even more individual support. “In terms of evidence, we’ve seen the longer you can keep a young person in school the better the outcomes are socially, for their own progress in life and to hold down employment.” The 40th anniversary is also significant for the site itself, which has housed education since the mid 1800’s. “I think the fact that 63 High Street has always

been an education site is pretty significant,” Mr Wangman said. “While the Community College has been here for 40 years, we’ve actually had education on this site since 1857. The first school in the area was actually located here – School Number 37, the Belvoir Common School.” The complexities of operating a not-for-profit organisation as a modern corporate business relies heavily on the connectedness that the organisation can achieve with its local community, sector peak bodies and government funding agencies. In a frequently changing environment, the AWCC seeks to remain flexible, responsive and engaged, with a steadfast belief in learning as a tool of empowerment and growth, providing opportunities, choice and improved quality of life. “It’s about providing services to a community at a cost-effective way, providing an array of services that sometimes wouldn’t be provided for, and it’s about stepping out and meeting community needs.”

n i a s g a r tion o y t i n u m m o c a s a s r a Celebrating 40 ye The history of Albury Wodonga Community College From 1857 Belvoir Common School, No: 37 was built in 1857, headed by Mr Edwin Davis Davis.

From 1862 In 1862 the head teacher of the school Mr John Hughes set a fire in preparation for a warm start on Monday. Some hours later a burning log rolled out and set the school on fire. Two residents succeeded in saving the school but not before serious damage had been caused.

From 1874 The structural damage caused by the 1962 fire ultimately made the original building unfit for use, so it was sold, pulled down and removed. A two roomed school took its place in 1874. These new rooms were designed to cater for up to 150 students. The building (known as Big School) still remains as the administration area of the current AWCC. Belvoir Common School changed its name to Belvoir State School in 1875.

From 1973 The state school operated until the mid 1950's when 770 students transferred to another school site in Wodonga. The buildings were used as Wodonga Technical School until that was also relocated. A symposium recommended the establishment of an independent adult education centre in 1973. Wodonga High School formed a steering committee and Wodonga Technical School released a teacher as the first executive officer. The Community College opened on 1 April, 1974. Enrolments grew from 210 to 1246 students.

From 1978 The Community College took over site management of 63 High Street, Wodonga and the School for Seniors was established and expanded. Other programs included Second Chance Reading, Parent Education, Rural Education and General Education.

1982 – 1984 The Women's Access Program and Affiliated Centres were formed in Chiltern, Yackandandah, Hume, Howlong and Corowa, with the Mobile Children's Service beginning operation.

From 1989 The purchase of a relocatable building assisted with accommodation pressures and new programs in Workplace Basic Education, access for developmental disabilities and adult literacy programs commence.

From 1994 Youth programs became a feature along with labour market programs and adult VCE, overseas education tours, the Community Managed Transport Scheme and School for Seniors. Student enrolments climbed to over 800.

From 2006 2006 brought with it the commencement of an independent alternative secondary school with 36 students in years 11 and 12. Community Early Years Childcare expanded to 20 rural locations in Victoria and NSW. Over 300 new online and distance education courses were offered.

From 2007 $5 million in building extensions are added and the Trade and Training Centre opened. Albury Alternative School commenced and property purchases are made in Wodonga and Henty.

Sub gets bombed By KRYSTEN MANUEL DRIVING down the main street of Holbrook, it is impossible to miss the freshly yarn-bombed HMAS Otway in all its golden glory. Many hands lovingly knitted, weaved, crocheted and tangled the submarine’s winter attire across several months in a bid to put Holbrook back on the map after the bypass (and bring the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine song back to life, of course). While hundreds of people gathered around the submarine to see it make history at the official unveiling on Thursday, many were unaware of the sub’s history before the yarn-bombing. Many people would also not have noticed the smaller scale model submarine watching humbly from the sidelines - the B11 ... Surprisingly, Holbrook’s biggest attraction (HMAS Otway) is really a supplement to the B11 - the vessel which sailed Lieutenant Norman Douglas Holbrook into the history books, won him the Victoria Cross and resulted in the town being named after him. Of even more interest was the email NewsWeekly received just a couple of weeks ago from a man in England. Mr Colin Rogers is the descendent of John (Jack) Harding, a man who was not only on the B11 at the time of its hairraising trip into the Dardanelles, but who saved the officers and crew from suffocation after being submerged for over nine hours. Mr Rogers said he remembered sitting on his great uncle’s knee as he told the story and showed him the DSM he was awarded after the mission’s success. “In the ’60s my paternal grandmother told me a story about a First World War exploit that involved one of her brothers,” he said. “It will be 100 years on 13 December 2014 since this event took place. “She said that he had saved a submarine and was mentioned in dis-

patches, and as there are a lot of stories in the press at the moment of WWI, I decided to research this event.” Mr Rogers found a book with the answers he was looking for called We Dive At Dawn, by LieutenantCommander Kenneth Edwards. The book tells the detailed story of how a B Grade submarine took down the mighty Turkish warship - the Messudieh ... In preparation for the 1915 Gallipoli campaign, a mixed naval force kept watch on The Dardanelles to make sure the two German warships didn’t break out. Within the force were three old British submarines - B9 (commanded

by Lieutenant Warburton), B10 (Lieutenant Gravenor) and B11 (Lieutenant Holbrook). Patrolling was ‘galling’ and so the British and French began to talk about carrying out a submarine raid to The Dardanelles. Shortly, a rivalry sprang up between the French and British as to who would successfully attack first. The Brits were onto it, sending the slightly modified B11 on its first assassination attempt. The mission was tricky, to say the least. The B11 was only 150-feet long with a surface displacement of 280 tonnes. Full speed submerged was 5 to 6

knots, though speed had to be used sparingly due to battery power. The Dardanelles were 27 miles long and change direction twice. In the Narrows they were less than a mile wide for 3.5 miles. Through the straits runs a strong current from the Sea of Marmara into the Mediterranean. Nowhere in The Dardenelles is there a current less than two to three knots, while in The Narrows it reaches a speed of about four knots. The positions of enemy minefields were only approximately known, while nothing was known of the varying strength and directions of the currents. The B11 left Tenedos on December

12 in the dead of the night. Early the next morning Holbrook was faced with a dilemma thanks to a broken hydroplane guard - should he turn back and report failure, or carry on through an unknown minefield with one hydroplane unguarded? Holbrook carried on, checking his position at 9am. Just a mile away on his starboard beam he saw a large warship. Holbrook attempted to move closer for a better shot at the ship, but was swept several hundred yards off the attacking course - it was now or never. Continued on Page 2

From Page 1 Holbrook torpedoed the ship successfully, but was spied by the enemy. When the B11 should have been fleeing, the sub’s compass malfunctioned, leaving them blind. Holbrook put up a periscope and found he was in Sari Siglar bay and headed toward where he thought the entrance lay. But the sub had been swept much further into the bay than Holbrook thought and, with a sickening thud, B11 hit a sandbank. The only hope was for her to pass over it - not an easy task considering the impending Turkish attack, the limitations of B11 and the position they were in. But with Holbrook’s ambition and bravery, the sub lurched over the bank after several attempts. Holbrook then navigated blind to the entrance to the straits. The B11’s only navigation was Holbrook’s guess, using only the freshly torpedoed warship as a clue. “ ... It is the easiest thing in the world to lose one’s bearings in a submarine with only a single and very intermittent eye - ‘lost in the box’ submarine officers call it - and there is no more helpless feeling,” We Dive At Dawn reads.

Patrol boats hunted B11 the whole way as it attempted to navigate five rows of moored mines, but B11 arrived at the entrance to The Dardanelles at 2.10pm on Sunday 13 December. “So foul was the air in the tiny submarine when she reached the surface that a match would not burn in her,” We Dive At Dawn reads. “Even the engine refused to start until the boat had been ventilated for 10 minutes.” This is where John Harding stepped in ... “My great uncle was the Chief Engine Room Artificer on the submarine B11,” Mr Rogers said. “His account to us was that ‘all of the officers and crew had been unconscious at the end of the mission but he managed to keep going long enough to vent the boat and save them all.’ “Even though my great uncle said that he had to surface and vent the boat himself, he was never

given credit for it. He said himself the Captain and second officer would never admit to be in such a state! “He was awarded the DSM and I am sure he showed it to me when as a small boy; I sat on his knee and he told me of his adventures ... ” And so, when Germanton was to be renamed, Holbrook was chosen. “The world viewed the story with amazement,” Holbrook Submarine Museum curator Roger Cooper said. “People viewed subs in those days like you would a spaceship. Later, in the ‘70s, the Apex Club brought the scale model of the B11 into Holbrook.” So next time you visit the Holbrook submarine, be it yellow or not, don’t forget to visit the B11 and revisit its David and Goliath tale.

Cash injection for homeless campaign

By TANIA PHILLIPS TRINITY Anglican College Thurgoona has received a $1.8 million upgrade of its science facilities. Students and staff at Trinity celebrated the opening of the new Founders’ Centre, which included the construction of three science laboratories. The new buildings, built with the help of $700,000 in federal funding, were officially opened on Monday by local Federal MP and Assistant Minister for Education, Sussan Ley. The project, totalling $1.8m was funded through a $700,000 Australian Government grant and by a $1.1 million contribution from the Trinity Anglican College community. “These new facilities are an important part of ensuring students get a great education,” Sussan Ley said. “Our government is committed to building a world-class education system which will equip all Australian students with the skills they need to succeed in an increasingly competitive world.”

The region’s homeless are set to be given a boost thanks to the Going Home Staying Home reforms. to access services before they are at crisis level, before they are on the streets sleeping rough. “Importantly, resources will be delivered where they are needed most, based on evidence not history. “I am proud to be a part of a government that has acted to support the most vulnerable members of our community. “I congratulate the St Vincent de Paul Society NSW and Albury Wodonga Youth Emergency Services Ltd and their partners for the work they do to support families, young people and men and women

who are in need of assistance.” In addition to the Going Home Staying Home program, over the next three years the NSW Government will introduce a number of complementary initiatives to prevent and respond to homelessness. These include: $31.2 million to extend and increase the Start Safely program that provides stable, private rental housing for 1300 women and children escaping domestic violence. A new $27 million program to provide up to 4000 unaccompanied homeless children and young

people under 16 years with help to reconnect with family, or transition to independence through education, training and employment. An additional $7.5 million for new housing and support programs to help 100 homeless people currently in the inner city to find stable homes in suburban and regional areas. A new $4.5 million homelessness hotline and referral service that will act as a single state-wide phone line for people who require homelessness services.

1140273-KC25-14

A RANGE of new services will be introduced to help reduce homelessness in the region under the widestranging reforms of the sector in a generation. The Going Home Staying Home reforms, which were announced by Family and Community Services (FACS) Minister, Gabrielle Upton, will increase funding in the FACS Murrumbidgee District from $5.46 million to $5.94m. The Albury electorate will share in $1.954m to the Eastern Murrumbidgee Network Homelessness Service led by the St Vincent De Paul Society NSW and $1.974m to the Southern Murrumbidgee Network Homelessness Service lead by Albury/Wodonga Youth Emergency Services. The Going Home Staying Home reforms will provide a record $445 million over three years for nongovernment organisations to deliver homelessness services across the state to improve the lives of more than 52,000 people a year. “Without a doubt, Going Home Staying Home will help improve the lives of the most vulnerable members of our society,” member for Albury, Greg Aplin said. “Under these reforms, local homelessness services will be better placed to deliver a full range of supports that will help us to tackle homelessness at a local level. “Greater focus will be placed on early intervention and prevention, not just crisis management. Those at risk of homelessness will be able

Inheritance battles leave “boomer” families shattered, pockets empty The sale of an inherited family home is the leading cause of mid-life sibling rivalry between Albury-Wodonga Baby Boomers. Dean Lupson reports. Albury Wodonga Property Agent Dean Lupson says “even minor disputes between siblings and relatives can chew up tens, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal costs. The result is normally a broken family and MUCH less of the sale proceeds going to the intended beneciaries. It’s no way to honour a loved one’s memory” says Dean. “I remember one recent case where an elder brother of two sisters took control over the sale of their deceased parent’s home and a neighbouring block of land, and refused a combined offer that ended up costing his two sisters $45,000. Sadly, those siblings are no longer on speaking terms Too often brothers and sisters go to war citing reasons of greed, dishonesty or incompetence that and the once happy family is all costs others over the sale of a parent’s home. but broken.” Albury Solicitor, Mike Eden adds that this type of situation can be easily avoided simply by getting an independent valuation before seeking the services of an experienced Property Agent. He stresses the importance of hiring a Property Agent who can offer a strong process in dealing with these kinds of cases where there’s a chance a family could come to loggerheads over any number of issues related to the sale of a loved one’s property. “For many siblings it seems like a pretty straightforward thing to manage, but the cost of something going wrong (causing a family breakup) is too heavy a price to pay” he says… For the rest of this article, please phone Dean Lupson on 0260 215590 or 0458 527 632 or email: dean@borderconnect.com.au 1140695-CB25-14

Space, thought, action By KRYSTEN MANUEL GIGS Art Gallery is hosting an exhibition with a difference. Mother Earth - A Breathing In And A Breathing Out is a celebration of the space between thoughts and actions, encouraging and inspiring an almost meditative state, by local artist Sari Cecilia. The exhibition features 38 works composed of limestone, gourds (dried pumpkins) and found wood using interesting techniques like pyrography - an ancient American Indian marking reminiscent of tattoos. Like Cecilia’s works, her journey has been unique and varied, touching on many different countries and cultures. “Art has always felt natural to me, so I went to Melbourne University and did fine art at university,” she told NewsWeekly. “After that, my security side kicked in and I did teaching as well. I’ve been teaching art for 17 years now but I’ve been travelling the world. I’ve been an art teacher in the Middle East, Asia, Australia and Ireland.” After travelling for so many years, Cecilia has leant to appreciate both nature - in all its complexity and simplicity - and the freedom to create works not limited by size and shape. “I like to dance, I like to sing, so there was always that feeling of the more kinaesthetic the more visceral effect we have in the arts,” she said. “When I got back to Australia I moved to Wodonga and was really excited about having my own art studio rather than having a travelling suitcase studio, so I went big. “I live in Stanley and it’s just so inspiring. It’s really helped me to see who I am, where I’ve come from and what I want to do. “This exhibition is a celebration

Don’t miss the beautiful simplicity in Sari Cecilia’s new exhibition: Mother Earth. of how beautiful Australia is in comparison to some of the countries I’ve been to. When I was in the Middle East I was in a desert, I didn’t see a flower in a year. That yearning for nature was really prevalent in my life, so here it’s a celebration of nature and the way Mother Nature starts to take care of us. She’s given us nature in abundance and a lot of the time in our busy lives we forget about just stopping, so a lot of my artworks are about that pause, or the space between a breath and a thought - that emptiness. “I hope my exhibition is going to help people to relax a bit. It’s limestone, very soft subdued colours. There will be plaques on the walls and they’re all soft muted colours as well. “In my exhibition you’ll also see a lot of animals or impressions animals make like a kangaroo paw their mark on the land. “So there’s a lot of different themes but I’ve left it quite simple - very pure simplistic forms because that helps you to relax.” Mother Earth is on display at GIGS Art Gallery until 13 July. The official opening is 5.30 - 7.30pm, Friday 20 June.

The Ibis Styles Lake Hume Resort Biggest Morning Tea raised just over $1000 for the cause.

Hats off to our cancer fighters DID you know an estimated 128,000 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in Australia this year, with that number set to rise to 150,000 by 2020? The Ibis Styles Albury Lake Hume Resort Garden Party themed Biggest Morning Tea was held on Thursday 29 May and from 11am, with 55 enthusiastic community supporters enjoying delectable sweets prepared by the head chef. The sun was shining and everyone’s enthusiasm was clearly shown as they arrived wearing their favourite hat.

The sails on the Lake Room at the resort were transformed into a serene and colourful garden. Attendees were encouraged to participate in the fun, with prizes being awarded for the most unique hat and the most colourful hat. A special thankyou is in order for all the local community businesses and suppliers who supported the cause. The Lake Hume Resort’s community initiative raised a total of $1005. Jenny Jensen, who has worked as a volunteer with the Cancer Council NSW for three years and is the Border Advo-

cacy Network chairperson, was the guest speaker for the event. Her passion about cancer research, support, a healthy lifestyle and prevention programs was clearly felt in her 10-minute address. Making every cup count was Lake Hume Resort’s way of giving back to the community by supporting the 128,000 estimated new cases of cancer and their families that will be diagnosed this year. Lake Hume Resort promise next year will be bigger and better to encourage the local community to ‘dig deep’ and make every cup count.

Concerti’s crowd By KRYSTEN MANUEL, Pictures: ADAM WILSON THE Murray Conservatorium took a step in the direction of big city orchestras last Saturday with their newest performance - Concerti. “Concerti was a series of virtuosic performances with guest artists supported by the Murray Conservatorium Orchestra,” Murray Conservatorium assistant director Jenny Pietsch said. “It’s the first time we’ve done it in this format. The orchestra performs regularly, but it’s the first time we’ve had high level concerti played. It’s

the kind of thing that happens in the big cities a lot - with the Melbourne Symphony and Sydney Symphony, but it hadn’t been done locally as far as I know. So we thought we’d feature some of the fantastic talent we have,” Ms Pietsch said. Concerti featured a violin solo by Mendelssohn, a clarinet solo by Mozart, a piano solo by Chopin and a double cello performance by Vivaldi. “They did fantastically well,” she said. “Two of them were students and three of them were staff members from the conservatorium. “There were many many hours of practice pre-

paring for it. They each prepared their pieces on their own and then had rehearsals with the orchestra in the lead-up to it.” Concerti was performed in front of a very grateful crowd who look forward to the next conservatorium performance. “The next concert for the orchestra is in November December and the theme is ‘Swoon,’ so there’ll be some tango and ballads - something a little bit different again,” Ms Pietsch said. “It was such a success we’ll be having guest soloists again in the Swoon concert,” she said.

WELCOME to another edition of Dhurany, meaning ‘news’ in Wiradjuri. As we head into winter most people across Australia are waiting for the nal say on what will or will not be part of the Federal Budget as agreed to by Parliament. However, below are some statements that reect funding focus for Indigenous Australians: The programs will include: • Jobs, Land and the Economy – focused on jobs, business and the use of land for economic development. • Children and Schooling – focused on school attendance, improving education outcomes, early childhood and families. • Safety and Wellbeing – focused on health and social and emotional wellbeing. • Culture and Capability – focused on maintaining culture, social and economic participation and that organisations are capable of delivering quality services. • Remote Australia Strategies- focused on strategic investment in local, exible solutions based on community’s priorities and remote housing and infrastructure. According to Reconciliation Australia the following are key statements made in the budget: • Health funding to be “refocused” under the “Indigenous Australians Health Programme”. • The Government will respond to the Forrest Review of Indigenous Training and Employment later this year and the Treasurer has indicated that there are funds held in Contingency Reserve for these measures. • The Government’s priorities remain “getting children to school, adults into work and building safe communities”. • A new “Indigenous Advancement Strategy” comprised of ve programs within PM&C.

NAIDOC Week NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920’s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians. NAIDOC Week is held in the rst full week of July. It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians made to our country and our society. We encourage all Australians to participate in the celebrations and activities that take place across the region during NAIDOC week. The Albury Wodonga NAIDOC committee members are either community members or organisation employees, Family and Community Services, Wodonga City Council, Albury City Council, Centrelink, Albury Wodonga Aboriginal Health Service, Mungabareena, Albury City Library Museum, La Trobe University and Albury Police to name just some. The NAIDOC planning committee was originally formed in 2011 and provides

opportunities for all of the community to celebrate Aboriginal culture together. This year we have a NAIDOC logo competition. We want to express pride and professionalism in what we do. What better way than to have a dedicated logo. First prize winner not only has their artwork used and displayed as the Albury Wodonga NAIDOC logo but also wins $500. Second place wins $200 and third place wins $100. We are also very happy to have a community member organise a Pride walk providing an opportunity for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait community members to show the wider community our pride of heritage. This is one of the rst events in NAIDOC week being held on the Sunday 6 July after a service at St Matthews Church. After the walk the rst ags will be raised by our elders at QEII square. All members of the Albury Wodonga communities are welcome and encouraged to join in. Other events include – A tour of the Wagirra Trail, traditional story telling at the Albury and Lavington libraries, breakfasts and ag raisings at the Lands Council, family fun days

with Family And Community Services (FACS) and Albury Wodonga Aboriginal Health Service (AWAHS), Woomera and Burraja open days, lunch at the wood red oven, morning tea at Centrelink. Albury Police is hosting a morning tea for the local elders and much more. Again this year La Trobe University are hosting the NAIDOC awards. Categories include Uncle Arthur Melrose Memorial Encouragement award, Elder and Youth of the year, Community Person, Scholar, Artist and Sportsperson of The Year, Volunteer of The Year and Appreciation award awarded to an individual for their demonstrated commitment and contribution to benet Indigenous people over the

long term and demonstrated achievement in this area and demonstrated involvement in the Indigenous community at local, regional or national levels. A Facebook book group called Albury Wodonga NAIDOC community noticeboard 2014 seems to be paying off, with comments being received around what people would like to do and see. There is also a short video clip on both this Facebook page and YouTube. We also hope to promote using our local radio stations so listen out for some of the exciting events. If you have any enquiries please do not hesitate to call John Murray at Albury City Council on 6023 8111.

Are you at risk for type 2 diabetes? July 13–19 is National Diabetes Week. It’s a scary fact that two million Australians are at high risk of type 2 diabetes. The good news is that we can prevent or delay this progression from pre-diabetes to type 2 diabetes through sustained lifestyle change programs. “We have strong evidence that over half of cases of type 2 diabetes developing from pre-diabetes can be prevented through sustained lifestyle changes which combine healthy eating, increasing physical activity, and obtaining and maintaining a healthier weight,” said Diabetes Australia CEO Prof Greg Johnson. “We have seen the state-wide implementation of a program in Victoria funded by the Victorian Government, the Life! program, which has now seen over 30,000 people access structured lifestyle change programs to prevent type 2 diabetes and we need a National Diabetes Prevention Program to take this powerful and proven prevention to a national scale.” What causes type 2 diabetes? The cause of type 2 diabetes is still unknown but is associated with modifiable lifestyle risk factors and also runs in families. The condition is more likely in people with a family history of type 2 diabetes or from particular ethnic backgrounds but usually develops in adults over the age of 45 years. It is increasingly occurring in younger age groups including children, adolescents and young adults.

My ideal holiday destination lying in hammock in Hawaii Someday I will eat salsa in Spain I often say if you don’t get involved, you can’t make change

How can type 2 diabetes be managed? For those who do develop type 2 diabetes, most will need oral medications and/or insulin injections in addition to lifestyle changes to help manage their type 2 diabetes. Self-monitoring and management is particularly important. Unfortunately, if type 2 diabetes is not well-managed then it can lead to serious health complications including heart attacks, strokes, kidney damage, blindness, limb amputations, serious anxiety and depression and more. There is no such thing as ‘mild’ diabetes.

Women who develop gestational diabetes are also at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes in the next five years. What are the risk factors of type 2 diabetes?

On Monday the 26 May, the Plan was launched with 20 people attending including representatives from the Aboriginal Health Service, community members, key primary care providers and HML staff. Hume Medicare Local has entered into discussions with Reconciliation Australia and has been advised that the Plan will be endorsed by Reconciliation Australia in July.

Travelling experience By KRYSTEN MANUEL WHEN you’re planning an important getaway, the peace of mind you receive from working with an experienced consultant who has been where you’re going is invaluable. And when you can organise your trip any time, anywhere and through any medium, your travel planning becomes an exciting experience, not a chore. Libby Frankel is your trusted local personal travel manager and can deliver all this and more. Having worked in the industry for over 14 years and travelled everywhere from Antarctica to Africa, Libby can mould your unique travel dreams into an exciting reality. Libby can assist you with holiday packages, airfares, cruises, tours, accommodation, car and motor-home hire, rail and ski packages, special interest holidays, conferences, weddings, travel insurance and more. And if you have your eye on Africa, well - your planning prayers are answered. “Africa has my heart,” Libby said. “Back in 2007 I did my first trip to Africa and while on safari I came across this tiny little community right near Lake Malawi. “A local Malawian couple were putting all their wages towards doing what they could to help the kids. At the time they were wanting to raise some money to build a shelter. It was only $5000 US dollars and I thought ‘I can do that.’ “I’d fallen in love with Africa so when I got back I thought maybe the best way to do it is to become a safari leader over there. So I went back in 2008 and worked as a safari leader for a while, but I realised I’d be able to raise a lot more money back home. “I raised $12,500 US and went back in 2010 with a bunch of volunteers, did a lot of work and now it’s just an ongoing thing I’ll be doing for the rest of my life. “I absolutely adore Africa because of the people and the wildlife, it’s absolutely amazing. It really does capture your heart - and you tend to leave a piece of it there.” Being the travel-hungry person she is, Libby also has a passion for many other places ... “One of my other favourite places is Egypt,” she said. “Seeing something like the pyramids and all of the structures over there ... You’re standing where someone else was standing 6000 years ago and touching something someone put there or carved there - it’s mind-blowing. “Then you have the absolute natural

beauty of places like Antarctica, and one of my other favourite places is Mexico because it’s so vibrant and colourful, it has amazing food - the list is endless.” TravelManagers is a nationwide company with over 400 personal travel managers running their own businesses. Consultants like Libby enjoy the freedom to work for themselves, but with the backing of a major travel brand providing security and access to all the deals. “That gives people the flexibility to contact me when they are free, but I can come and meet with them, whether it be at their work, their home or a coffee shop.

“I can give them 100 per cent undivided attention, whereas previously, having worked in an actual travel agent store, you do have a lot of distractions.” Having worked locally as a travel agent for 14 years, Libby would especially like to take the opportunity to reconnect with her old clients. “I’m back in the industry and I’m ready to help!” she said.

Whitsunday Islands - Queensland

What a winter getaway By KRYSTEN MANUEL THE winter months are the perfect time to snuggle up and treat yourself - and your better half, of course! Imagine - you’re up to your neck in glorious warm bubbles, sipping wine and eating chocolates as the spa rumbles away, massaging away the week’s tension. Your partner sits across from you, a similar look of blissful satisfaction sliding across their face and your thoughts begin to wander to what you might do for the rest of your stay ... You’ve decided to spend the night in your beautifully secluded cedar cottage and the lamb shanks, crusty bread and dessert are on their way. Tomorrow you’re looking forward to waking up at your leisure and drawing the curtains. You know the view before you will be breathtaking - where the Walwa Jingelic mountains kiss the valleys and the morning fog quietly lingers. This is what you came for - to relax, replenish and be renewed. You decide the itinerary for the following day will include a bit of bush-walking at Paddy’s River Waterfall, or Bluff Falls, a visit lunch at one of the quality nearby wineries, or a day trip up through the beautiful snowy mountains to the Yarrangobilly Caves. After lunch, you decided to play a lazy round of golf before heading

Cafe Amore An odd combination ALPACAS, books and coffee – not your usual combination but this weekend at “Chalk and Chat” they will be the order of the day. On Saturday, 21 June, from 11am to noon Albury author Sue Carolane, a local speech pathologist, will be on hand to sign her new book at Chalk and Chat in David Street, opposite the Albury Primary School. Chalk and Chat owner Judy Redman said Sue had written a book for parents about letter sounds. The book “Aa is for Alpaca” is based on Sue’s own alpacas and as well as a chance to talk to the author and get their books signed parents (and their kids) will have a chance to pat two friendly young alpacas. Sue Carolane has had 35 years of experience in the field of speech pathology and has written a book showing children how to recognise a letter when it is written down, and learn the sounds it makes. She believes for adults teach-

ing children to read, using the word ‘sound’ and ‘letter’ at the right time is crucial. Using them in the wrong place can confuse a child. The book event is something unique but then so is Chalk and Chat. The shop combines coffee, cake and biscuits with educational resources on sale for both teachers and parents. The store is the brainchild of Judy Redman, a former teacher with more than 35 years’ experience, who discovered that the region was lacking a place to buy educational resources to assist parents and teachers. She said living in Sydney there were places to buy educational books and toys (although she stresses that Chalk and Chat is not a toy shop) in every second suburb but when she moved to the area she was surprised to find there was nothing of the sort around. “My dream for this place was to be able to support the teaching and learning of children, and to also support

teachers and parents as well,” Mrs Redman said. “I was an assistant principal at Howlong Public School until a car accident sidelined me from that career path. But once a teacher, always a teacher!” she said. She said she wanted a place where teachers and parents can go and enjoy a coffee and find the things they need to help in their job or with educating their child. After all, coffee is synonymous with teachers and the staff room. “Coffee or tea are the things you look for at recess and lunchtime to keep you going, so I planned the cafe as an important part of the business as well. The smell of new books and coffee - wonderful!” Chalk and Chat was opened in October and now offers the people of the area a place to find curriculumfocused books, teaching resources, Koorong Books and tutoring as well as a conference room out the back.

Stormtroops turns sexy for three nights only. Those three nights sold out in record time, and the show has gone beyond all expectations. Since then it has travelled the country and has delighted audiences of over 20,000 people. Still, the show was designed for a small stage, and feeling like they had never taken full advantage of a full theatre stage, nor realised the ideas that were just a pipe dream for the original show, the producers destroyed all the props and costumes in May 2013 and started rebuilding a new show from scratch: The Empire Strips Back: A Star Wars Burlesque Parody. “When I started doing this show I did a kind of cheap version many years ago,” Beattie said. “In order for me to do it again on a much larger scale I told everyone I had to take it up a notch. So I destroyed all the costumes and props we already had. I started from scratch. I wanted to get as close to movie accuracy as I could given the logistics. “There was a lot of research, six months’ worth!” And of course, the storyline was heavily appropriated for

By KRYSTEN MANUEL IT’S Stormtroopers in g-strings and C-3PO with skin - lots of it. “It’s funny, it’s sexy, it’s very entertaining and it’s very contemporary,” creator Russall S. Beattie said. “It’s meant to awaken the feeling of being a child, where you can enjoy yourself and not think of the consequences. “It’s a show that anyone can see. If you’ve seen Star Wars, if you haven’t seen Star Wars, if you want to bring your mum it will still be a good show. It’s not gratuitous, it’s just fun.” After sell-out tours of the original production, Star Wars Burlesque, the producers are back to meet the audience demand with an even bigger and better production. Empire Strips Back is designed to indulge audiences in a sci-fi fantasy of intergalactic proportions - George Lucas could never dream that his characters could be used in such a manner, guaranteed to get some hearts racing. In 2011 Russall S. Beattie created the first run of Star Wars Burlesque in Australia. It was booked in a 150-capacity room, with the intention to run

the burlesque stage. “Because Star Wars is so well-known by everybody and the characters are so wellknown, we didn’t follow the storyline so to speak, it’s more of a celebration of Star Wars as a whole,” Beattie said. “We recreate scenes and things from the film but it’s more about the characters in certain situations and doing things they wouldn’t necessarily do.” Empire Strips Back is firing on all cylinders to exceed the expectations from the previous production, with a full size remote controlled R2-D2 by the same people who worked on the Star Wars films and custommade character masks to bring to life characters that have only ever existed as puppets or CGI. “We’ve taken everything up a notch - not just in scale but also in quality, everything is as close to the movie version universe as possible, from a full size R2-D2, casting a Han Solo in carbonite, and having a seven-foot Wookiee,” Beattie said. Albury Entertainment Centre, Thursday 19 June, 8pm. Tickets: Adult $58.80. For bookings go to www.alburycity. nsw.gov.au or phone (02) 6051 3030.

The Empire Strips Back is everything you want in escapism - it’s funny, sexy and dripping in creativity.

Should have stayed invisible By KRYSTEN MANUEL MOVIE: The Invisible Woman STARRING: Felicity Jones and Ralph Fiennes DIRECTOR: Ralph Fiennes DURATION: 111 minutes WHILE there was clear talent to be found in almost every facet of this film, I left the cinema caring less about the characters than when I entered. The film begins with Nelly (Jones), a quiet school teacher with a passion for drama. Nelly is married to a gentle, kind man whom she has a young son to, but despite her comfortable life she is increasingly troubled. Nelly has bottled up a secret for many years, along with growing guilt, shame and sadness. Her memories take us back to when she was 18 years old and she met Charles Dickens (Fiennes). Nelly, her mother and sisters are travelling actresses and find themselves acting in a Dickens play. Nelly is capti-

vated by the talent and passion she sees in Dickens while he is similarly captured by her her beauty, youth and above all, intellect. And so the affair begins. Not the sordid sexual encounters you may imagine but a true love affair - a stifled meeting of similar minds bound together in red-hot, tangled emotions. While Dickens, the selfrighteous, conceited man he was, made no excuses for turning his back on his family and the wife who kept him for decades, it was good to see Nelly felt at least a little conflicted. Around halfway through the film is a set of three scenes that show Dickens telling his wife he will continue the affair, her being sent over to see Nelly and give her the go ahead for the ‘secret’ relationship, and Nelly getting on her high horse when brought to the house Dickens’ friend had set up for his mistress. Further into the film, Dick-

ens alerts his wife to their separation by writing into a newspaper, explaining their situation. While the acting in The Invisible Woman was superb, the costumes and sets were faultless and the storyline was far from boring, I just really hated this film. I felt Fiennes wanted the audience to relate to Nelly, even feel sorry for her. I failed to feel anything for any of the characters. I felt I didn’t know them well enough to care how they felt, and so took the situation on face value - he was a selfish scumbag, so was she and they both deserved to feel the full force of the guilt and remorse they brought on themselves. The most valuable thing I took from The Invisible Woman was a cold slice of life - a sad glance into how extramarital affairs worked in the day of Charles Dickens. I wouldn’t be rushing out to see this one.

Quality lasts IS QUALITY audio too expensive, and how do we compare the value for money? A frustrating part of today’s retail environment is everything has a lowest common price. Generally, all you end up chasing is he who can make the cheapest version wins, and the end result is the purchase was on price rather than value. I invite you to stop and compare – in 1980 a typical full component audio system averaged around $1500 or $6000 on today’s money and around one in three homes invested in a quality music experience. How does $6000 stack up today? The Eagles Concert tickets went on sale last week with a mid-priced ticket at $269. In 1980 a mid-priced ticket was $25, a trip to the cinema

was between $2 and $5, fuel was 32 cents a litre and $1 for a packet of cigarettes. We quickly forget that a typical television in 1980 was $1,000 and a stereo model $1,500, a video camera pack $3000 or a video recorder $1200. We are quite often requested by prospective clients to replace a quality sound system that they have had for 20 to 30 years, intending to enjoy a similar but expecting a better performance than the old system. The $1,500 old system is to be replaced by a new shiny, compact $400 unit. The likely result is that music no longer does what it used to do for them and it becomes a good radio. Quality music systems today need not dominate living rooms to perform well, nor do

you have to spend the $6000 as inflation suggests. Today, $6000 purchases the inspirational standard of product that was only in the reach of the most affluent in 1980. Once you have invested enough to provide a quality performance, two things are likely to happen. The life spans of the products are expected to be similar to the quality products of 1980 and the equipment becomes easier to use. Many second string brands will load up on features to distract you from what you really want and that is quality sound and ease of use. Quality music systems are the most affordable they have ever been and with music streaming services providing almost all the music ever recorded, the rediscovery of music is awaiting you.

PRIDE in presentation shines through this weatherboard located in one of Wodonga’s most treasured locations, just minutes from the CBD. The presentation reflects the way the home has been lovingly maintained by its owners, who have lived there and raised their family over many decades. A comfortable lounge presents off the welcoming entrance hall and offers a gas console heater, carpet, light fittings and window furnishings. A formal dining area adjoins both lounge and kitchen, which is served by an upright electric stove.

The cupboards are neat and clean but may be upgraded by anyone with long-term plans to live in the centrally located home. Both bedrooms are of generous size and the bathroom has been upgraded to shower and vanity. An enclosed verandah at the rear could serve as a third bedroom or a sewing room or office. Car accommodation is by way of a lockable garage workshop plus a large carport. Gardens are attractive and low-maintenance. Undoubtedly, the crown-

ing glory of this property is its central location as its versatility extends from a residence for permanent or rental living or a future development as townhouses (subject to council approval). The land component is 736 square metres (approximate) and is within walking distance of five churches, four schools, medical and commercial facilities as well as shopping and restaurants – eat in and take-away. Really, you won’t get much better than what this muchloved residence offers you.

OWNING your own home is the great Aussie dream, yet many first home buyers worry that they are being priced out of the market. Australian Bureau of Statistics show buying has certainly become tougher for first-timers: its latest figures, for March this year, showed first-home buyer finance commitments were just 11.9 per cent of total owner-occupier housing finance commitments in Victoria, and 12.6 per cent Australia-wide. But while this is still much lower than the long-run average proportion of 19.9 per cent, the trend is upwards: it was an improvement on February – up 0.1 per cent – and on the historic low of 12.3 per cent in November last year, REIV and its national counterpart REIA in Canberra continue to make representations to government about the need for more help for first-time buyers – greater stamp duty concessions and a bigger housing supply, for example. But meanwhile that dream need not be out of reach – there are strategies to help you get a foothold in the property market. For those planning to buy their first house, unit or apartment there is good news too: interest rates remain at a record low, with the Reserve Bank cash rate just 2.5 per cent. That makes borrowing cheaper and repayment smaller. House prices are still cheaper in many areas of Victoria than in boom times and there are still plenty of affordable properties – if you know where to look. The latest median house price figures, for the first three months of this year, show there are parts of regional Victoria where it is still possible to buy a house for less than

$200,000. Ararat, Donald, Dunolly, Churchill, Moe, Morwell, Merbein and Seymour all had median prices below this level. And there were many more towns with prices between $200,000 and $250,000. Ask yourself where you want to live? Find the kinds of homes you want, get to know the local agents and talk about what is available and what you can afford. If your preferred town or area seems beyond your reach, check other locations close by to see if they may offer a cheaper alternative. If you are looking in a large regional centre, it’s worth considering a unit or apartment rather than a house, as a way of entering the market. The key is to try not to overextend your mortgage, and make sure payments are manageable, and you’ll be able to enter the property market with confidence – and in your own home sooner. You can then benefit from capital growth, with property a solid long-term investment.

2007, spare NSW TR11.

BORDER Trust, the region’s community foundation, is urging residents to consider giving locally this end of financial year. “Giving locally is such a rewarding experience,” Border Trust’s executive officer Glenys Atkins said. “Through our annual grant round, we have the capacity to fund projects as diverse as a portable office for AW Regional Foodshare, equipment for the Beechworth Men’s Shed, a barbecue trailer for a Scout group and materials for hand-made quilts for Hilltop. “The projects aren’t neces-

sarily the big ones that attract major national funding; they are generally the smaller, community-driven ones that benefit enormously from a grant of up to $3000. “It sounds cliched, but the reality is that donations of all sizes really do make a difference. “Because Border Trust distributes the income from the perpetual fund we are building for our region, the amount available for distribution via our annual Community Grant Round is directly linked to the amount held in trust.

“The community foundation model provides benefit today and in the future as the donations people give today do grow and keep on giving.” Since 2005, Border Trust has distributed more than $530,000 through community grants and Back To School programs. Donations to Border Trust are tax deductible and potential donors are welcome to ring the Border Trust office to discuss giving options. Border Trust: Westpac Lane, Albury. Telephone (02) 6051 3349.

Oration speaks to Timor A SERIES of events focusing on Indigo Shire’s relationships with regional neighbour TimorLeste will lead the way to the 2014 Kerferd Oration on 27 July. One of the lead-in events is an evening with Andrew Mahar AM, the founder of WithOneSeed – a charitable organisation carrying out developmental work in Timor-Leste. Kerferd Oration Committee chair Ian McKinlay says Mr Mahar has been working with remote communities in TimorLeste for the past 10 years, assisting them to move beyond aid and charity. “He has done this through a social enterprise model that focuses on social and economic

participation,” Mr McKinlay said. “WithOneSeed works with communities across Australia and the Asia Pacific region to make environments sustainable, to end poverty and hunger, to build knowledge and to create regional partnerships. “Andrew is also the CEO of the xpand Foundation and has been involved in creating social enterprises for 25 years. He has provided advice and guidance to community sector organisations, government at all levels and the private sector. “Andrew has built his knowledge and understanding from practical, hands-on experience working in the not-forprofit field.”

The evening will be held at the Beechworth Neighbourhood Centre at 7pm on Saturday 21 June. “It is a wine and cheese night with a blue note entry donation, which will go to WithOneSeed and the Indigo Atauro Friendship Group,” Mr McKinlay said. The Kerferd Oration will be delivered by Ms Jenny Coles, Australian liaison representative for education for the Australian-born wife of Timor-Leste’s Prime Minister, Ms Kirsty Sword Gusmao, at Baarmutha Park, Beechworth at 11am on Sunday 26 July. For bookings, please contact Lesley Milne on 0428 389 138.

Local Sport St Pats thrashed By KRYSTEN MANUEL A DEMORALISING loss was suffered by St Pats Football Club on the weekend’s round 12 game, failing to score while Melrose managed to put five goals in the net. “Obviously, the result wasn’t what we wanted,” St Pats Club president John Mahoney said. “The boys put in the best effort they could - Melrose are a very quick side.” Melrose FC president David Pye said despite their clear win, St Pats put up an unexpectedly good fight that had them on their toes for a good portion of the game. “It was competitive initially and just a matter of us breaking down St Pats,” he said. “We got an early goal, but it’s always dangerous at one nil until you get two or possibly the third goal. You start to relax even at two nil, which takes a bit of time to get there, it’s always a bit of a lottery that they could fight back into the game. “It took us a little more time to break them down than I thought. They’re an improved outfit from the first game we played against them, so credit to Andy Stevens there. “When we got to two nil, I anticipated we would get three more.” Pye was quick to isolate strengths and weaknesses with the team, naming Adam Walters and Peter Donaldson stand out players in the match. “We were strong all round,” he said. “I thought we knocked the ball around quite well. It’s not the best of grounds in wet conditions, and the opposition did make it awkward. “Domination of possession needs to improve. I felt we controlled it quite well but we don’t seem to be able to put things away as quickly as we believe we should be able to.” Mahoney was also quick to give credit where it’s due. “The younger members of the team played very well,” he said. “Curtis Iverson, he’s one of our younger back line players, he played very well. We had some very good contributors on our back line on the day. “But we need to strengthen our defence as much as we can. We’ve been trying to improve that all year, and then to score some goals would be lovely.” This week St Pats will play Wodonga Diamonds, while Melrose will face Wangaratta.

A mixed bag IT WAS a mixed weekend for the Subway North East Bushrangers as they came away from their Melbourne road trip with a win over Western Port and a disappointing loss against Keilor. Going into Saturday night’s game against Keilor, the Bushrangers felt they were a good chance to reverse the result from the last time they met. Yet again it was the Bushrangers inability to look after the ball, coupled with some interesting officiating that would allow the Thunder to take control of the game. The Thunder set the game up with a scintillating first quarter as they jumped out to a 12-point lead, and from there the Bushrangers were playing catch up. Despite putting on a couple of big runs, the Bushrangers lack of cohesion on the offensive end would ultimately see them go down 67 to 53. Jon Lindhe led the way for the Bushrangers with 12 points and 9 rebounds. Darcy Locke (10 points and 6 rebounds) and Ben Appleford (6 points and 12 rebounds) were solid contributors on the night. Looking to salvage something from the weekend, the Bushrangers headed to Western Port to take on the Steelers. The game was a complete turnaround from the night before, as the Bushrangers used some crisp ball movement and solid pack defence to build a comfortable 17-point lead, heading into the long break. The Bushrangers were able to build on their lead in the second half. Western Port made a big run at the Bushrangers in the fourth quarter as they were able to cut the lead to single figures, before youngster Trent McMullan steadied the ship with a couple of long range bombs. Eventually, the Bushrangers would run out 11 point victors, 83 to 72 and register their third win of the season. The Green’s Garden and Ag North East Lady Bushrangers made the early trek down to Western Port to take on the Steelers. Western Port was able to get the jump on the Lady Bushrangers in the first half as they built a steady 11-point lead. The Lady Bushrangers struggled through a poor shooting performance to rally and cut the lead to just three points, heading into the final quarter. Unfortunately, the Lady Bushrangers were unable to capitalise on multiple opportunities, converting on three of 22 attempts for the quarter, and would ultimately go down 54 to 48. Next up for the Bushrangers is an encounter with their rivals the Shepparton Gators. Both sides will face a tough task, but will be hoping to reverse the results from last time. - Sam McDonald, North East Bushrangers

FARMERS and livestock agents have teamed together in a unique fund-raising drive to support the James McQuillan Future Fund. Farmers are being encouraged to donate livestock to their nominated saleyard with all proceeds going to the fund. Livestock agents and participating saleyards are generously waiving their commissions and fees, and strong buyer support is being encouraged. Currently, Wodonga and Corowa are receiving donated livestock for the months of June and July. The Farmers Helping A Farming Family In Need fund-raising drive is also being extended to other regions across the country such as Bendigo, Wagga Wagga, Swan Hill and hopefully more as time progresses.

Farmers are encouraged to log onto the James McQuillan Future Fund website for updates. James McQuillan, the son of a dairy farmer at Nanneella near Echuca, suffered a serious spinal injury after an accidental collision in an Ovens and Murray Football League match in Albury in April this year. As a result of this collision, James has been diagnosed with quadriplegia. He is currently undergoing rehabilitation at the Royal Talbot Rehabilitation Centre in Melbourne. The McQuillan family has been overwhelmed by offers of support, including this latest fund-raising drive which will be crucial in helping fund the ongoing care and very expensive rehabilitation their son will need for the rest of his life.

James McQuillan and his family are consistently grateful for the community’s ongoing support.

O&M FOOTY2014 Home on the world stage Simon

Says with SIMON CORR AUSTRALIAN Rules is undeniably the greatest game in the world, however it is hard not to be drawn into the excitement of this year’s Soccer World Cup. While the Aussies may struggle to advance to the final 16, the game has still captivated our country and I am sure many are in awe of the incredible skills on display. Perhaps if Aussie Rules wasn’t such a dominant game here Down Under and more of our incredibly talented athletes turned their hand to soccer as youngsters, Australia would be a real international force. I didn’t have to look too far for examples as I ran through the lists of our current Ovens and Murray football clubs to see who I thought would naturally adapt to the world game. Albury: Lonnie Hampton. The Socceroos would kill for a player with the blistering pace and exquisite skill of Lonnie. He has already shown that he can play different codes - he would be awesome. Lavington: Luke Garland. Perhaps Tim Cahill’s heir apparent, Garland is a great reader of the play and I’m betting would possess similar aerial dominance. Brendan Fevola takes a mark against the Raiders. Wangaratta: Matt Grossman. Would be right at home sweeping across the backline and creating many chances for his strikers with long and precise ball delivery.

Corowa - Rutherglen: Kade Kushert. I am aware Nathan Thomas has played the game at a state level, but Kade Kushert would be a defensive Rock of Gibraltar. A defensive wall that included Kush would be almost impenetrable.

North Albury: Jarrah Maksymow. This guy would be a freak! Unpredictable and full of excitement, Jarrah would be capable of scoring from scissor kicks with monotonous regularity and his celebrations would be a delight.

Wangaratta Rovers: Alex Marklew. This guy would not only be a natural with his flair and uncanny ability to do the impossible, but I daresay would also be a very marketable player ... particularly with hair products!

Wodonga Raiders: Dean Limbach. Limbach’s height and penchant for scoring a goal would see him as a valuable commodity. I reckon had he turned his hand to the world game he would be a very similar player to our own Josh Kennedy.

Picture: ADAM WILSON

Myrtleford: Brad Murray. No doubt growing up in the Alpine Valley, Murray has already been exposed to the great game. His natural on-field leadership qualities and strong physical presence would make him a good candidate to wear the skipper’s armband. Wodonga: Ben Hollands. In his heyday Hollands would have made a fantastic winger. Great pace, natural balance and loads of skill with a real hunger for scoring a goal. This weekend’s Ovens and Murray action sees some fantastic contests. Another chapter will unfold in the epic arm wrestle between powerhouses Albury and Yarrawonga. Albury are playing brilliant football at the moment and

after a pretty soft month will be looking forward to the contest. They have a real weapon up forward in Setanta O’hAilpin who has yielded 43 goals in the last four weeks, and possess the league’s most dominate midfield. In contrast the Pigeons are playing well below their best, but Drew Barnes and his boys are always up for the challenge when it comes to a meeting with the arch-rival. Myrtleford will take some winning form into their contest with the Wodonga Raiders. The Raiders have shown signs of improvement in the past fortnight and will consider themselves a real chance after defeating the Saints earlier in the season. Corowa Rutherglen will be looking to get back on the winners’ board

Yarrawonga: Brendan Fevola. We’ve already seen Fev score numerous goals in true soccer style. His midair strike last year from a boundary throw in, suggests he would have been very comfortable up front alongside Mark Viduka.
