Tom Osburg says he has proof shooters are acting illegally. 122676


A MILLGROVE couple is calling for an end to hunting in and around Warburton, and want more police to deal with illegal hunters. “It’s complicated” doesn’t wash with Tom Osburg and partner Jackie Murphy when it comes to hunters shooting with high-powered rifles near their Millgrove home and river reserve and bushland where people walk, ride and fish. The couple live on the boundary of the Millgrove housing estate with a lease over crown land that runs from the Yarra River up to the O’Shannassy Aqueduct walking trail. They believed hunting for deer was prohibited in the area after Warburton Police made a case for public safety that resulted in a Prohibited Deer Hunting (PDH) zone being brought in in 2012. An order brought in last September however allows private property owners, or authorised agents, to shoot on their own land where deer are a problem, but not on public land. A confrontation with shooters they say were operating without permission on public land adjoining their property on Sunday, 8 June, was the last straw. Warburton Police are investigating those allegations, and an alleged assault on Mr Osberg the same day. “We have two heavily armed hunters, dressed in full camouflage in one of our paddocks, just a few hundred metres from where I sit,” Ms Murphy wrote to Police Minister Kim Wells in February. She said she had called triple-zero several times, but by the time police arrived the shooters were nowhere to be seen. “If this was happening in metropolitan Melbourne they’d have the police helicopter, dog squad and police scouring the area to find the shooters,” Ms Murphy said. She said they can’t understand why the PDH was not being recognised. The Mail has spoken with Warburton Police and with the Department of Environment and Primary Industry (DEPI) who say ... “it’s complicated”. “What the PDH does is prevent hunting for deer in public land in areas around Warburton. If you’re a private land owner in that exclusion zone, you can hunt deer on your own property and you can allow others to hunt. The order has nothing to do with those zones,” Simon Toop, Director Game, Game Victoria, DEPI, explained. Under the order shooters must get permission in writing authorising them to destroy deer on their land. Mr Toop said shooters must however comply

A LAUNCHING PLACE pensioner who missed a hospital appointment because his taxi didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn up wants improvements to the system ... and an explanation. George Brophy booked the taxi for 6am on Saturday 14 June, to go to Box Hill Hospital for an appointment he had waited for four months. Mr Brophy, who has had two kidney transplant operations and a heart by-pass, said the taxi was booked through Yarra Valley Taxis three days before, and that his wife Elizabeth had been assured by the taxi company when she rang on the Friday afternoon that it was all good to go. When the taxi hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t arrived by 6.40am, he rang and got a computergenerated response asking whether he still wanted the taxi. Mr Brophy said he finally got through to an operator, who put him through to another person, who was unable to give him any information. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had allowed plenty of time, but in the end, I had to cancel the appointment because there was no way I would have made it in time,â&#x20AC;? Mr Brophy said.

The volunteer service of Hillcrest brigade members was also recognised on the day with the presentation of CFA Life Membership to Kenneth Burrows who has been a CFA volunteer for 30 years. Originally a Woori Yallock member, Ken is a qualified wildfire and low-structure firefighter who served as 2nd and 4th Lieutenant and was recognised as a mentor to new brigade members. He was also presented with the National Medal. Colin Warne, Tim Reid, and Rick Shaw also received the National Medal. Long Service Awards were presented to Mr Warne (25 years), Frederick De Boer (20 years) Alan Cousins (15 Years), Andrew Smith (20 years), Brendan Tierney (15 years), Paul Livesay, Susan Jack, Peter Jenkin and Beverley Croke (five years). - KATH GANNAWAY


CFA volunteers of the Woori Yallock and Launching Place brigades were on a steep learning curve when they decided in 2007 to amalgamate and become Hillcrest Fire Brigade. At the official opening of the $1.56 million Hillcrest Fire Station and Yarra Valley Group Headquarters at Woori Yallock on Sunday 25 May, the large crowd heard there was no manual for amalgamation and with three communities involved, including Don Valley, it was an ambitious project. The new station was the culmination of more than six years of planning, hard work and fund-raising to get a facility that best served the three communities and provided a central group headquarters. The building commenced in 2013 and the brigade moved into the new station in December. The official opening by Police and Emergency Services Minister Kim Wells and a community open day the next weekend, provided an opportunity for the local community to have a look over the new building. Mr Wells was joined by Seymour MP Cindy McLeish and Gembrook MP Brad Battin, along with CFA chief officer Euan Ferguson, CFA deputy chair John Peberdy, Yarra Ranges council mayor Fiona McAllister, numerous community group representatives and past and present brigade members.

Connecting people and communities MVM

Hospital study cash approved THE future of Healesville Hospital has been a major topic of community discussion for a couple of years now. Just before Easter in 2013, I attended a large community meeting at the Memorial Hall where a range of issues and suggestions were discussed. Since then, there has been much progress with more funding provided by the State Government for a range of services. One of the big issues discussed at the meeting and since has been whether Healesville Hospital should become an independent hospital with its own local board of management.

From my y

desk Tony Smith MP

Federal Member for Casey

We all want the hospital to be the best it can, not only for the benefit of Healesville, but for the broader Yarra Valley community which also depends on it. I said at that public meeting that if it could be demonstrated that indepen-

dence would deliver a better result, I would be all for it. Determining whether independence is the best way forward requires a thorough, rigorous and expert feasibility study of the business case. Taking the leap to independence based on a hunch or a second-rate study would be irresponsible, which is why the Save Healesville Hospital Action Group (SHHAG) and the local community started raising funds for a full professional study. Notwithstanding the extraordinary fund-raising efforts throughout last year, it was always clear the community was not in a position to raise the

In addition to this funding, in March Minister Briggs visited Healesville to sign the funding agreement to provide the $3.56 million I pledged for the construction of the Yarra Valley Railway. As detailed analysis has shown, it will be a major drawcard for more tourists to spend more time in the Yarra Valley, building a stronger local economy with more jobs. The funding for the business case on independence for the Healesville Hospital will importantly enable the analysis to be undertaken so that we can also make the best health service choices for the future to build a stronger community.

Day care in the balance By JESSE GRAHAM FAMILY day care services offered by Yarra Ranges Council could cease as of next year following a decision at tonight’s (Tuesday) council meeting. But, though a conclusion has not been reached, the council has said that stopping the service won’t adversely impact families and educators. At the council’s 24 June meeting, councillors will discuss the possibility of ending provision of its Family Day Care (FDC) Scheme for the municipality. The move to stop the scheme has come as a result of financial pressure,

Day service special plan

according to Yarra Ranges Council’s Director of Social and Economic Development Ali Wastie. Ms Wastie said that federal budget cuts to the FDC scheme of about $67,000 as well as ongoing council subsidies to the scheme are making it unsustainable. The council is funding the scheme with a $92,000 subsidy for the 20132014 financial year which, according to the council, is about $1 for every hour of care delivered by educators. Ms Wastie said that, while cost neutrality is not the only determinant for keeping a service running, ending the council’s FDC scheme will have

little social impact, with five other providers servicing the area. “By exiting, there’s no loss in social benefit,” she said. “We have to weigh up the social benefit in this decision.” If the scheme is ended, the council will transition families on FDC programs to other providers before services would be due to cease on 1 July 2015. Council employees could be accommodated elsewhere in the company, or would possibly leave to work with other providers, according to Ms Wastie. However, she emphasised that

nothing was final until the councillors made a decision. “We’re anticipating that there will be concern out there – internally, there’s concern for staff who are impacted,” Ms Wastie said. “We’re working with staff to make sure they get necessary support – but we’ll wait until next Tuesday to find out what the council decision is.” The council employs 21 educators who provide childcare for 101 families across the Yarra Ranges. For the result of tonight’s Yarra Ranges Council meeting, visit mail. and see next week’s Mail.

By JESSE GRAHAM A DAY service for disabled children could be a reality in the Yarra Valley, with passionate locals campaigning for a provider and community space to care for vulnerable citizens. Healesville Connections is the name of a steering group recently established to campaign for disability day services in the Healesville area. Group member Kathy Cameron spearheaded the campaign, organising a meeting last month at Healesville’s Memo Hall to gauge community interest in establishing a campaign. Ms Cameron told the Mail that community members, health group representatives and politicians all attended the meeting, and the positive result gave birth to Healesville Connections. She said that, with the steady rise in population in Healesville, it would be fitting to get a disability day service running in the town.

“We want to get something happening in Healesville,” Ms Cameron said. “I see it as a coming-of-age in our town, to finally accommodate our disabled residents.” Ms Cameron said, since the meeting, groups had expressed their support for setting up a service, but that

the campaign was still in its preliminary stages. The steering committee met on Tuesday 17 June with Yarra Valley Community Health representatives, to discuss a way forward. Healesville Connections member Di Gow said two consultation sessions would be organised for individuals

with a disability, their families and community providers next month. No date for the consultation sessions has been set. For more information, visit www., or call Kathy Cameron on 5962 3639.

Council slams exemptions By KATH GANNAWAY YARRA Ranges Council is baulking at arrangements that allow certain government departments to build infrastructure without a planning permit, or community consultation. Councillors voted at the meeting on 10 June to write to Minister for Planning Matthew Guy, requesting a review of planning exemptions for ministries overlooking conservation forests and lands, health and education. In a background report, the councillors were told that the Education Stimulus Package delivered across Yarra Ranges saw facilities developed on education department land with limited or no consultation with neighbours or the local community. “This approach has resulted in increased tensions between neighbours and schools,” the report states. It also highlighted a recent move by Ambulance Victoria to develop a ‘muchneeded’ ambulance station in the hills region, and said with no requirement for them to seek a planning permit, residents’ and council’s views were unlikely to be considered. The report concluded that while schools and health services are important to local communities and to Yarra Ranges Council, building them should not be at the expense of a fair and transparent process in which they are given an opportunity to participate. The motion, unanimously carried, included a statement to the minister that a review was needed to ensure proper community consultation and that any developments by the agencies reflect council and community aspirations in the Yarra Ranges Planning Scheme. Cr Witlox supported the motion by Cr Samantha Dunn saying, “ ... there appears to be one rule for everyone else and a different rule for some government departments”.

Parks winter weather warning VISITORS to national parks and forests in the Yarra Ranges are being urged to take care as winter rains set in. Parks Victoria and the Department of Environment and Primary Industries urged avoiding areas that were closed down and to slow down and be careful when travelling on forest tracks and trails. “Safety for visitors,

volunteers and staff working in parks and forests is paramount,” Parks Victoria’s General Manager Regional Services, Chris Rose said. “Please plan your trip to make sure you, your friends and families safely enjoy your visits to parks and forests.” Some tracks and trails are now closed as part of the seasonal road closure

program in the interests of driver safety, as well as to protect forest and park roads from damage during the winter months. “Some forest roads and tracks close when the track surfaces are most likely to be damaged by vehicles,” DEPI State Roads and Bridges Planning Manager Tony Dowler said. “The closures are important because our forest roads

Opinion Interesting conflict I ATTENDED the Yarra Ranges Council meeting on 10 June regarding the granting of a liquor licence to Woolworths Seville. The vote took place, as in 2011, and, once again, unusual circumstances were observed. Of the nine councillors at Yarra Ranges Council, one councillor abstained again from the vote stating conflict of interest, asking on the conflict he replied “I have Woolworths shares”. Why did he not state at the previous vote in 2011 that they were actually Woolworths shares he had on that occasion? One councillor was not in attendance for the vote, three councillors voted against the liquor licence and three councillors voted in favour of this liquor licence, now the interesting twist this time involved the Mayor, Cr McAllister. The mayor stated that she was not happy with the proposal for a liquor licence quoting “the panel in their findings may have made a different decision negative to the Woolworths development if they had applied for a liquor licence at that time”. We in the gallery were very enlightened by this statement but, the best is yet to come. When the show of hands was taken, the mayor was the first to put up her hand - in favour of the liquor licence. I have discovered the first casualty of the Woolworths complex forced upon us by Yarra Ranges Council, the IGA (and liquor) at Wandin has been sold off, the current owner directing the fault at the Woolworths encroaching supermarket complex on business. Now, my problem with this vote is that the absent councillor Callanan for the Seville area not being present should have made the voting deferrable until the next meeting and the actual cause of any councillor’s conflict of interest stated at such meeting. Bill Wellington, Save Seville Group.

Respectful response LAST year the Napthine Government, in which Cindy McLeish MP serves, changed state legislation so that VicForests can approve its own applications to amend its Timber Release Plans (TRP). With Dracula well and truly in charge of the blood-bank, there is little confidence that objections to proposals for further logging will be seriously considered. When I, as chairman of Healesville Environment Watch Incorporated (HEWI), submitted the group’s objections to VicForests proposal to list another 300 coupes, as usual I copied it to the minister and to Ms McLeish, our local MP, for their information. There was no mention of any political party in the submission.

and tracks become much more difficult for drivers to use safely over this period. “Some forest tracks would suffer significant damage if left open all year round so we assess them each year and then, after consultation with users including Four Wheel Drive Victoria, we decide which tracks need to be closed.” Mr Rose said the partnership approach helped to

protect parks based on the best available information. Information about road and track closures is available from the Public Access Map site in the recreation and tourism section at www. Further maps and information about park conditions is available from Parks Victoria at www.parks.vic.

Send your letters to: The significance of Ms McLeish’s inadvertent response (16 June) is in what it reveals about her government’s attitude to the environment “not bothering to respond”. I might add that she has also not bothered to respond to other HEWI correspondence that was addressed just to her and was, we considered, something she needed to respond to. This followed a meeting at which we expressed strong concerns on her government’s appalling changes to native vegetation legislation. In spite of our disagreements over regressive policies, HEWI has always treated Cindy with appropriate respect. If she wants to be shown greater respect she needs to make an effort to earn it. That is something this Coalition government, with Cindy’s support, has signally failed to do with its series of blatantly anti-environment decisions and policies over the past four years.

Steamed up IT’S good to see Ray Donkin still has his pet hobby horse to ride. Once again we see him blowing steam up his own chimney about the Yarra Valley Railway! Have you been paying attention Ray? Along the Yarra Glen road masses of bridge work has been done, and in the yard at Yarra Glen Station there is so much necessary material being stored in readiness to be used. Unlike Puffing Billy, which of itself probably does little for the township of Belgrave, the influx of extra tourism to both Healesville and Yarra Glen will be noticeable, and welcomed, as there is so much more in this area to do and see once you are here. Our railway is different, Ray. It is a full sized one, not a narrow gauge one, with rolling stock and equipment recognisable from the not too distant past but, of more importance, is that it is a living Museum of Victorian Railways that cannot be found anywhere else, as close to Melbourne as it is. It is also in a major tourism area. Look at all the restoration work being done in and around Healesville Station of historical rolling stock and equipment, won’t this be more valued seen in a working environment than stuck in an ageing timewarp like the Spotswood Museum pieces are. You talk about the Abbott government cutting back on expenditure and yet they are going to waste 10s of millions on looking for a plane that wasn’t even an Australian one. Yes, we all want to know what happened, but! Better to contribute monies to projects of enduring value than to things like that. Have you not wasted monies of your own in

the past? Have governments of all persuasions not wasted monies on things we don’t agree with? This scenario has a visible and successful finish line in sight, Ray. Unfortunately, you just don’t want to see it! Steve Odell, Chum Creek.

D-Day environment GREAT bravery and sacrifice was made on D-Day (6 June) to create one turning point on the war against Nazism. There were early opportunities in the 1930s to destroy Nazism however appeasement, denial and national self-interest prevailed. Large corporations backed Hitler. Leadership to tackle Nazism was non-existent. Today’s danger is the destruction of the environment. Apparent denial and national self-interest prevail. Large corporations manipulate governments. Leadership to tackle the problem is non-existent. The economy is the first priority, the environment last. As with Nazism in the 1930s, bad news does not get better by ignoring it, problems only get worse. If we are not careful, sooner or later there will be a D-Day to right global warming, to save the environment and life on the planet. Peter Hannaford, Healesville.

Hunting laws – grey areas ARE we the only ones concerned about the shootings around Millgrove and Warburton? A high powered rifle, such is what is used for shooting deer, can send a bullet 1 km plus, in any direction. What that means is that anyone, be they shooting lawfully or unlawfully, could send a bullet into most homes in Warburton and Millgrove and beyond, as well as the O’Shannassy Aqueduct Trail, The Yarra River, The Warburton Rail Trail, The Warburton Golf club and the Warburton Highway along with private landholdings and businesses. The laws governing shooting and hunting, in Victoria, are a mess. The law states that no one is allowed to shoot in populous areas, to ensure public safety. The fact is however, that people can and do shoot in the valley - which is a populous area. Please make your concerns public, so we can act as a community, to address these issues. J. Murphy, Millgrove.

Moving symbols of life OBITUARY Elaine Mary Postlethwaite Born: 23 November 1936 Died: 13 May 2014 SUMMING up a life so well lived and embraced is no mean task. The collection of symbols, however, presented one by one at Elaine Postlethwaite’s farewell Mass at the Marysville Community Centre on 22 May 2014, was a moving and celebratory way of encapsulating her life. Her daughters, nieces and grandchildren presented first chalk and a pop-up book, symbolic of her wonderful teaching career. Then, a beater and sponge recipe, her much appreciated baking skills, her prayerbook and Rosary beads were symbolic of her love of God and His Church. The Book of Days purchased at Mont St Michel in France, her love of art and of things French, her hat and umbrella, a lifetime of walking and her love of beautiful clothes, her Order of Australia Medal, recognition of her wonderful and wideranging service to her community of Marysville, coloured glass symbolised her love of beautiful things and her love of colour. There was the Commonwealth Games baton that she proudly carried in the Relay in 2006. And, highlighted with funny and seemingly contradictory anecdotes during the service, Elaine’s St Kilda football scarf and a Saints photograph representing one passionate supporter. Elaine was born at Warracknabeal to teacher Ted Duncan and

his wife Eileen. She was the eldest of five children who had a gypsy-like life moving around Victoria to wherever Ted was posted - mostly one-teacher schools. Most of her life was spent in Marysville, having moved early in her career to teach. She met and fell in love with Len Postlethwaite and they had two daughters - Ann and Kay. Marysville became her home and its people, particularly the little ones, became her life. After retiring from teaching she became the ‘kinder teacher’ for many years working with the three-year-old kinder kids into her early ’70s. She taught French at Buxton Primary School and at Marysville where she was also the religious instruction teacher. Her sister Patricia described her life as a broad tapestry, and it was certainly that - and she would have loved the description as a creative and innovative woman. She escaped from Marysville with her life on Black Saturday 2009 but, sadly, Len perished. The story of her brave decision to flee as the fire descended on their home was widely reported on. She was resilient and grateful, embracing a new home in Healesville - a town that was happy to have her. That experience, however, in no way defined her Marysville life. Elaine was an active member of the Lions Club, worked in the local opportunity shop and wrote for the Triangle News every week. She was the woman behind the colourful and iconic Rainbow Serpent which was so much a feature of Wirreanda and other festivals in

Elaine in 2010 with her trademark hat and Commonwealth Games Relay baton. 122650 Picture: KATH GANNAWAY Marysville - and in Healesville on occasion. She loved to walk - and it was always in heels! Elaine was known for her style - hats and high heels, often colourful, always beautifully combined. Letters! Her love of words wasn’t confined to reading, another great passion. She was a prolific letter writer and great contributor to the Mail letters page, and as a contributor on Marysville events. Letters would often come with photographs; she loved photography too

and especially when it was combined with her love of nature and colour. The St Kilda Football Club was well and truly on her mailing list, along with family, friends, politicans and anyone who she believed deserved a ‘thank you’, a serve, or other recognition. Australia Post was in good hands while Elaine was alive! As her sister Patricia noted “Elaine was a self-appointed selector, writing to the coaches suggesting who merited being selected and what positions they should play in”. Football was part of a broader love of sport from tennis and basketball played as a child to favourite sportspeople. Among many moving tributes was one from her grandson Ben, who described his grandma as the perfect blend of fairy-tale and reality. “Everyday, ever so gracefully floating between fiction and nonfiction, blurring the lines between them,” he wrote from the UK. “She taught us that the only true limitation in life is our imagination. The bigger the dream, the bigger the outcome.” In 2010 Elaine fulfilled a dream, at 74, travelling to Europe with family for the canonisation of Mary MacKillop. Creative, passionate, humble, quietly spoken (except at the football!), a woman committed to her faith, generous to her community, quick witted, caring and loving and fun... just some of the descriptions attributed to Elaine Postlethwaite by family and friends. Elaine was buried at the Marysville cemetery following the service. - KATH GANNAWAY

Indi lesson for Eildon INDEPENDENTS are gearing up for an assault on the two-party system and they have gone to Indi to see how it’s done. Independent candidate for Eildon Bruce Argyle was one of about 100 people who attended a forum hosted by Voices 4 Indi which, ran a grassroots election campaign that saw Cathy McGowan take the seat in last year’s Federal election. Mr Argyle said there was a significant overlap in the Indi and Eildon electorates. He said while Indi had the luxury of a lengthy community consultation campaign, his Eildon campaign would be squeezed into a shorter time frame. “We like the community consultation approach, which they called ‘kitchen teas’, and we’re intending to have consultation groups across the electorate,” he said. The use of social media and the engagement and involvement of young people was a hallmark of the McGowan campaign. Mr Argyle said of two main ‘take-aways’ from the forum the first was that much of the effectiveness of the Indi campaign was about broad representation. “It is not about the one vote that you get into Parliament with, but about the representation, the advocacy, the networking and the working with people in your electorate on a day-to-day basis,” he said. “She (McGowan) said ‘Independents are never in Opposition - they are always part of the discussion’ and that resonates,” he said. He said the second was that Independents can represent a diversity of views that were not necessarily their own. “We’re not going to mimic or mirror everything that they did in Indi, we have a different time frame, different community and I’m a different person. “What I am wanting our Independent campaign to be is a strong voice for local issues,” he said. - KATH GANNAWAY

Coral Reynolds looks over plans for the memorial with RSL secretary Lindsay Fisher Picture: KATH GANNAWAY and vice-president, Jamie Thomas. 122488

Centenary mosaic memorial PLANS are underway for Warburton’s World War I Centenary project that will involve the whole community. The project, a mosaic memorial, is part of Warburton RSL’s vision for the future that aims to highlight what they have to offer and build membership. Coral Reynolds joined the RSL a year ago and is co-ordinating the project. “This is an RSL you can walk into and be involved in,” Ms Reynolds said. “Taking a hands-on role in such an exciting project has been immensely rewarding,” she said. Ms Reynolds is working with Warburton’s mosaics guru Sioux Dollman, with details of workshops to be announced soon. “The idea is to include ev-

eryone from school children to RSL members, community groups and individuals,” she said. The memorial design features poppies and the words, ‘Lest We Forget’ and includes a garden that will be planted with Gallipoli Rosemary. RSL secretary Lindsay Fisher, welfare officer Albert Grulke and treasurer Victoria Morgan are keen to let the community know of the services and amenities they are offering as a local, volunteerrun RSL. Victoria and husband Wayne represent a new generation of ex-servicemen and women that the RSL would like to attract, but also want to get the message out that membership is not restricted. “Anyone can join, it’s not just for ex-service personnel,” said Victoria who explained

that there is also affiliated membership for relatives of serving and ex-service men and women, and for anyone in the emergency services. Social membership is also available. Mr Grulke said they were wanting to reach out to the families of younger veterans to offer support and Mr Fisher said they were also looking to increase involvement in social activities such as barbecues, dinners and special health and welfare programs that were open to everyone. The RSL is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with an open invitation to pop in for a cuppa and a chat, or phone 5966 9874. - KATH GANNAWAY

$20m shopping centre opening

Seekers of the solstice A GROUP of Healesvillians marked the winter solstice in a special way last weekend, taking part in a dance before dawn and a walk lit by lanterns. About 10 community members braved the cold and made their way to the Healesville Labyrinth before dawn on Saturday 21 June for the Midwinter Rebirth event. Candles were carefully laid around the labyrinth’s paths, and, as 7am came around, all

of the visitors linked hands and danced their way to the centre. Many of the participants sang as they made their way through, and by the time the sun rose, they took part in a silent meditative walk back through the labyrinth. Afterwards, the group settled into the morning, and the sun rose as they all tucked into breakfast at the ripe and early time of 8am. The winter solstice is known as the shortest day

of the year, due to the least amount of sunlight hours in the day and more hours of night. The Friends of Healesville Labyrinth organised the Midwinter Rebirth event as part of Healesville’s 150th birthday celebrations.

LAND that has been in the Pace family for over 46 years is nearly ready to open as the new Seville Shopping Centre. Work on the $20 million local community investment commenced in July last year. It is anticipated to be a premier convenience shopping destination boasting retail space of over 4900 square metres. Long-time Seville businessman and original owner of the site, Robert Pace, said he never envisioned anything like this happening with the land but it was very exciting to see the centre come to fruition. “It’s been a really long time coming and finally we have got here - it’s much-needed in the community,” he said. “There is not a lot of option out here and people have had to travel to Lilydale to shop.” Mr Pace said the issue with residents travelling to Lilydale to shop meant they would use the other speciality shops there instead of the ones in Seville. “Now that we have a shopping centre that is substantial like this, people that have been travelling into Lilydale to do their main shopping have that option to shop locally and service what this town has to offer,” he said. “That’s a big win for the town.” On completion, Seville

Martin Lohan and Robert Pace are excited about the opening of the Seville Shopping Centre next week. 122499 Picture: REBECCA BILLS Shopping Centre will consist of the latest design Woolworths supermarket and petrol station complemented by speciality retailers, a medical centre and car wash. The centre will also boast street-level parking for 256 cars, including disabled and parent parking. The centre’s management JLL said they were excited to open Seville Shopping Centre on Wednesday 2 July. “The centre will provide greater variety as a convenient shopping destination for the community and represents Woolworths’ commitment to investing in the area,” they said. Woolworths Limited Regional Development Officer Martin Lohan said a hair-

dresser, discount variety store, butcher and Woolworths supermarket would be opening on the official date. Mr Pace said his shops located adjacent to Warburton Highway would house a new medical centre and Salvation Army Store that will open shortly after the main opening. “We still have a number of tenancies open at this stage, we are hoping that once this (Woolworths) opens it will generate some more interest,” he said. Grand opening celebrations for the centre will commence on Wednesday 2 July and continue through the rest of the week. The celebrations will include appearances by children’s characters, giveaways and grand opening specials from Woolworths.

Game as Ned Kelly By KATH GANNAWAY WARBURTON filmmaker Matthew Holmes was on solid ground when he pitched a new film to the audience at the Warburton Film Festival two weeks ago. They had just sat through his chiller ‘The Artifice’ to huge applause. Winning the Technical Excellence Award further proved his credentials. Holmes has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $75,000 for his next venture, The Legend of Ben Hall. The 30-minute film will focus on the final days of a bushranger he says has a greater story to tell than Ned Kelly, and will serve as a launching pad to get a full-length film financed. As writer, director and producer, Holmes has a huge personal investment in the film. “The hope was that The Artifice would demonstrate my ability to tell a story and evoke emotion; that’s what the director’s job is, to make a connection with the audience,” he said. Holmes founded Two Tone Pictures in 2005 and has teamed up with Wolf Creek creator Greg Mclean and international sales agent Michael Favelle on another film venture ‘Territorial’. That project received development funding from Film Victoria and in Mclean’s words is “...highly original cinema that will give full rein to Matthew’s creative skills as a prodigiously talented filmmaker and storyteller”. It’s all underpins his Kickstarter campaign for Ben Hall. Holmes says they are looking to the public to make the film happen by pledging towards the project from as little as $20.

Matthew Holmes is looking to tell the true story of bushranger Ben Picture: ROB CAREW Hall. 121747 “It’s a do or die scheme; if we don’t reach the $75,000 we cannot make the film,” he said. As of last week with a closing date of 7 July, the amount pledged was over $30,000. Holmes said there were incentives for backers, and if the target amount was not reached by the target date, no money was called in.

“The thing about Kickstarter is that a $20 investment is perfect,” he said. “It’s about lots of people putting in small amounts to reach the target.” Larger amounts are, of course, welcome! Check out the Ben Hall Kickstarter fund by visiting www.kickstarter. com and searching ‘Ben Hall’.

YARRA Valley wines were front and centre when some of Australia’s top sommeliers visited the area last week, tasting the premium produce on offer. Sommeliers from all over the country converged on the valley on Tuesday 17 June for a tour that included stops in vineyards and cellar doors across the upper and lower Yarra Valley. Max Hart, Lyndon Stenning, David Bicknell, Gabrielle Fittler, Kent Comely, Hugo Delevove and Will GodsallSmith were some of the sommeliers taking part in the tour, which was organised by Wine Australia and Wine Yarra Valley. The visit was organised as part of Wine Australia’s Sommelier Immersion Program, which allows sommeliers to see vineyards and wine regions firsthand, to improve their understanding of different drops. Wine Yarra Valley CEO Richard Howden said the visit was a great opportunity to advertise the Yarra Valley’s premium wines and produce to some of the most prominent sommeliers and restaurants in the country. “Being able to get people into the

Yarra Valley and kicking the dirt is really important,” he said. “This morning, when they got out and when you wind your way through the forest ... and there’s beautiful views of Donna Buang and the Yarra Valley, you talk about what’s special about the fruit from the valley and they start to get it. “To see what’s behind it is really important.” Mr Howden said that the sommeliers, who visited Innocent Bystander, Punt Road Wines, Oakridge Winery and De Bortoli, among other venues, would have a say in stocking Yarra Valley wines further abroad. Wine Australia Regional Director, Aaron Brasher, said the visit could allow for more local wines to feature in prestigious restaurants Australia-wide. “These visitors are crucial in influencing consumers’ purchasing decisions in Australian wine bars and restaurants,” Mr Brasher said. “We will continue to provide opportunities through initiatives such as these to increase their exposure to the quality and diversity of the Australian wine offering.”

Bird on the rebound YELLINGBO-BASED Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater celebrated their 25th birthday throughout May. FOHH president Robert Anderson concludes the four-part Mail series that has looked at where the Friends have come from, the trials, tribulations and the successes along the way, and, now, the future. The helmeted honeyeater is a victim of choice. A bird that has a lifestyle which requires streamside and floodplain habitat is asking for trouble. When European settlers arrived, they actively sought out fertile land and an assured water supply. Felling trees and land clearing is inevitable when people wish to settle and farm the land. The Victorian State Avifaunal emblem was always doomed to lose much of its natural habitat. Historical records show that the helmeted honeyeater once existed in streamside and swamp vegetation of the mid Yarra Valley and northern eastern catchments of Western Port Bay. In 1866, a bird was collected from the Bass River (not far from Phillip Island) and later described. That bird is known today as the helmeted honeyeater. Clearing land and draining of wetlands gradually caused helmeted honeyeater numbers to fall. In 1983, the Ash Wednesday fires burned the remaining habitat of the birds near the Cockatoo township and the Cardinia Reservoir. By 1989, the last population was in or near the Yellingbo Nature Conservation Reserve. Fifty birds remaining was the catch cry that galvanised public opinion and the beginning of the Friends of the

Friends volunteers Vivian and Don nurturing the next Picture: M CRADDOCK generation of revegation. 121746

Helmeted Honeyeater. At the same time, a State Government Recovery Program commenced. After 25 years, what is there to show for the combined efforts of the DEPI Recovery Program, the Healesville Sanctuary breeding program, Parks Victoria management and the volunteer work of the Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater? Despite a prolonged drought and dieback of vegetation in the Yellingbo Reserve, there is cause for hope. At first, numbers gradually increased to over

100, and then drought took effect. Habitat deteriorated during the drought, reducing the bird population, however release of Healesville Sanctuarybred birds boosted the depleted population. Supplementary feeding in the form of a nectar mix added to the natural diet has helped maintain numbers. Since 2009, good rainfall has allowed for successful breeding seasons. The 2012/2013 breeding season has been so good that recently birds have been relocated from one part of Yellingbo Reserve to another. The latest release of Healesville Sanctuary birds in an unoccupied area is working well. Now with about 100 birds again and revegetated habitat available, there is cause for optimism.

On Friday, 18 July, Burrinja Cultural Arts Centre in Upwey will host battling bands, before a heat on Friday 8 August at Warburton’s Upper Yarra Arts Centre and the final show on 29 August in Mooroolbark. Yarra Valley band MF Jones took part in the battle heats last year, and have been invited back to perform as guests at the Warburton show. Guitarist, Alex Finch, said last year’s battle was one of the better shows MF Jones had played in, and that he was looking forward to the upcoming show. “I think, last year, with two of the bands, we all played well together,” he said. “It was a good show to go to and, this year, I think we’re heaps more together and we know what we’re doing. “We’re playing much better this year, than 12 months ago.” Yarra Ranges Youth Services, which is running the local heats, is looking for more bands to play in the upcoming shows and is urging passionate local musos to put their names forward. Any genre or style of band is welcome to enter for the battle of the bands. For more information, or to apply to be part of the FReeZA-Pushstart Battle of the Bands, contact Sean Daly at or call 9294 6716.

Ben Morris, Paul Williams and Jason Francis from Halen Vans. 122471

HALEN Vans is a small personal caravan manufacturing company started in 2011 by Jason Francis, Paul Williams and Ben Morris. Bringing a combined 35 years of manufacturing experience to the table enables the men to produce caravans suitable for our generation and the next. They use innovative products and ideas to build stronger and more stylish caravans with an emphasis on off-road capabilities. The team say their suspension and chassis allow you to travel on some of the toughest terrain in Australia.

“Combined with solar panels, battery management systems and inverters you can ‘free camp’ off the beaten track and yet still have the comforts of being able to use your caravan without having to be connected to 240-volt power,” they said. “Our vans have travelled the Tanami Track and the Gibb River Road to name a few, so you really get to see what Australia has to offer. “We build full height and pop-top caravans and sit down with each client to design an individual layout that works for them.” Halen Vans also service all brands of caravans and are a

recommended repairer for CIL insurance. “If it’s some upgrades to your existing caravan, we may also be able to assist you,” they said. “Being a small manufacturer, we truly believe in customer service and feel we deliver friendly and helpful service, not just when you build your van but when you are travelling too.” So if you are thinking of purchasing a new off-road van or are looking at servicing or upgrading your existing van, why not come in and see Halen Vans at 42 Industrial Park Drive, Lilydale or call 9738 7133.

Upwey right on top YVMDFNL THE sun finally shone on players in the Yarra Valley Mountain District ‘Community Bank’ Football Netball League. Division one saw Emerald breakthrough for their first win for the season. Upwey now holds a one-game advantage atop of the ladder and three clubs are all vying for a top five berth. Division two saw Seville hold a onegame advantage over Yarra Glen with Yarra Junction getting a win over Powelltown and four clubs pushing for a top five position. Football and Netball is definitely alive and well in the Valley. Netball has Upwey on top with two clubs fighting for the top five, and in Division two Yarra Glen has a two-game advantage on top of the ladder. First Division Seniors: Monbulk 12.12 (84) d Warburton Millgrove 8.23 (71) MONBULK may have won the game if not for Warby’s woeful inaccuracy in front of goal. The outcome may have been a lot different. Warby started well and jumped out to a 15-point lead at the first change, but Monbulk got back into the game in the second and was just five points adrift by half time. The third term was goal-for-goal in an even battle and by the last change it was Warby by just one point. Monbulk showed their poise in the last as they took full advantage of their opportunities, booting 4.3 for the term while Warby had their chances but wasted them with a 1.7 quarter which saw Monbulk triumph by 13 points. Monbulk best players: S. Williams (1 goal), D. Ward, S. Whittington (1 goal). Warburton Millgrove best players: B. Irving (1 goal), J. Iacono (1 goal), S. Andueza. Upwey Tecoma 23.23 (161) d Healesville 14.12 (96) UPWEY flexed their muscles as they handed Healesville a 65-point defeat. The first quarter was a bit of a goal feast with 10 majors being scored but it was Upwey that held the upper hand with six of those 10.

Jackson Fellows (Mount Evelyn) gets the mark. 122643 Picture: GREG CARRICK

Shane O’Brien (Mount Evelyn) goes for the mark against two Wandin players. 122643 Picture: GREG CARRICK Upwey was using the ball a lot better and it showed in the second as they booted five goals while Healesville was managing to stay in touch with three majors of their own and at half time it was Upwey by four goals. There was plenty of goals kicked in the second half, but it seemed for every goal that Healesville got Upwey would answer with two of their own. Upwey booted 12 goals to Healesville’s seven for the half, but they could have really blown Healesville away by their dominance, but with a score line of 12.15 in the last two quarters, it actually made the final margin not as great as it possibly should have been. Upwey Tecoma best players: D. Waters (10 goals), T. Hedge (1 goal), K. Grenda (4 goals). Healesville best players: J. Shaw (3 goals), S. Donkin (1 goal), G. Mason (1 goal). Wandin 16.18 (114) d Mount Evelyn 15.12 (102) WANDIN has really got their season back on track as they jump into fourth spot after a gripping 12-point win over Mount Evelyn. This has knocked them out of the top five and into the sixth spot. This was a ripper game from start to finish, there wasn’t more than seven points separating the sides at the first

three breaks. Wandin held the biggest lead and that was just seven points at quarter time. Mount Evelyn got a bit of control in the second and found the big sticks five times-to- three for the quarter and at half time, they had their noses in front by just one point. The third was a goal-for-goal affair with Wandin just holding sway, booting five goals to four and at the last break it was Wandin by four points. The last quarter was more of the same, but it was Wandin that had a touch more of the ball and created more opportunities which invariably got them a two-goal victory in what was a classic encounter. Wandin best players: R. Ross, J. Messis (3 goals), S. Young (5 goals). Mount Evelyn best players: C. Carmody (7 goals), C. Urquhart (2 goals), M. Martin. Second Division Seniors Yarra Glen 22.13 (145) d Alexandra 9.4 (58) YARRA Glen has bounded back into top form with a thumping 87-point win over Alexandra. Yarra Glen started well and used the open spaces of Alexandra’s ground exceptionally well in the first half which created numerous scoring chances which they took full advantage of.

By half time, this game was in Yarra Glen’s keeping as they held a 52-point advantage. Yarra Glen may not have been as dominant in the second half, but they were still way too classy, outscoring Alex 10 goals-to-five to win big. Yarra Glen ended the day with 12 separate goal scorers with the best of them being a great eight goal performance by J. Smith. Yarra Glen best players: J. Baughan, J. Smith (8 goals), K. Hudson. Alexandra best players: B. Cooper (1 goal), S. Hill (3 goals), J. Murphy (1 goal). Yarra Junction 19.12 (126) d Powelltown 14.17 (101) POWELLTOWN was favoured to win this game, but Yarra Junction had other ideas as they shot out of the blocks with a dominant first quarter, booting nine goals-to-two and putting Powelltown on the back foot for the rest of the game. Powelltown did manage to get the game back on their terms to a degree in the second and did reduce the 44-point quarter time margin to 33 points at half time to stay in touch somewhat. The third quarter was a wasteful one for Powelly as they had plenty of the ball, but booted 3.9 to Junction’s 4.1 and at the last change it was Junction by 31 points. Yarra Junction held off any chal-

Olinda register a convincing win YVMDFNL FIRST DIVISION A GRADE NETBALL

Amanda Finn from Yarra Junction.

Olinda Ferny Creek 66 d Woori Yallock 37 A COMPLETE solid four-quarter performance from Olinda gave them a comprehensive 29-goal victory over Woori. Olinda started extremely well with a 22 goal-to-10 first quarter to set the tone and Woori just couldn’t find a way to eat into that lead as Olinda really did control the tempo of the game, increasing their lead at every change to run out comfortable victors. Olinda Ferny Creek best players: A. Wall, C. Bates (2 goals), M. Thomas (29 goals). Woori Yallock best players: E. Van Der West Huizen, C. Stafford, P. Stewart (31 goals).

Warburton Millgrove 49 d Monbulk Hawks 34 IT WAS an eventual 15-goal win to Warby who did have to fight off a determined Monbulk. Warby held a narrow two-goal lead at the first change and increased that to six at half time with an 11 goal-to-seven second quarter. The third term was evenly matched with Warby going into the last quarter with a seven-goal buffer. Warby hit their straps in the last as Monbulk found it hard to sustain the pressure, allowing Warby to finish the day with a 15 goal-to-seven last term to win in a good contest. Warburton Millgrove best players: A. Bryan, O. Caneva (26 goals), K. Wappett. Monbulk Hawks best players:

S. Byatt (22 goals), A. Barwick, C. Weickhardt (7 goals). Wandin 60 d Mount Evelyn 38 WANDIN was far superior from the outset of this game and never gave Mount Evelyn a real chance. Wandin controlled play early and maintained that control to half time, scoring 32 goals-to-18. The second half was a little more even, but it was still Wandin with the upper hand, scoring another 28 goals for the game to Mount Evelyn’s 20 to win, in what was a very solid four-quarter performance. Wandin best players: M. Martinov (36 goals), T. Coppinger, J. Cullimore (14 goals). Mount Evelyn best players: J. Walker, M. Hickey (17 goals), J. Matthews.

lenge that Powelly threw at them and despite Powelly outscoring them by a goal in the last, it was never going to be enough to get them over the line in a game that Junction thoroughly deserved their victory. Yarra Junction best players: E. Wadsworth (4 goals), M. Sword, W. Robertson (2 goals). Powelltown best players: J. Mullan, D. Wilson (7 goals), K. Larsen. Seville 15.11 (101) d Thornton Eildon 9.8 (62) SEVILLE remains on top after a 39 point victory over what was a plucky Thornton for a half. Seville only held an eight-point lead at half time as Thornton took it right up to the league leaders and looked to be in with a real chance of creating an upset. However, Seville showed a superior fitness in the third and started to play their ground on their terms - they booted four goals-to-one for the quarter and had a 28- point lead at the last change. Thornton did battle it out in the last, but Seville was just a touch too classy, finishing with a four goal-to-two quarter to record a good victory. Seville best players: B. Costigan, S. Irvine, P. Bailey. Thornton Eildon best players: J. Myers (2 goals), C. Tiller (1 goal), D. King.

WITH one full week in the job under his belt, Gordon Sumner is ready to lead football in the region to a new season. Recently appointed regional general manager of the Yarra Ranges Commission, incorporating Yarra Valley Mountain District Football and Netball League (YVMDFNL), Dandenong Ranges Junior Football League (DRJFL) and Yarra Ranges Umpires, Mr Sumner said he was keen to develop the game. Growing up in Warburton, Mr Sumner started his football career 40 years ago, playing junior football at Wesburn Boys Club before he moved onto seniors at Warburton Millgrove Football Club. From there, Mr Sumner spent time playing at Collingwood Football Club in 1985 where he was awarded ‘Best First Year Player’ for Collingwood and the league. From there, he has moved through a number of football leagues as player,

coach, committee member, and major sponsor. In 2010, Mr Sumner was back coaching in Warburton and then was involved with Silvan Football Club as assistant coach in 2013. “It was amazing, I was coaching the kids of people I had played with - it really made it so much more enjoyable,” Mr Sumner said. “Now stepping up as regional general manager in this area is really a dream come true,” he said. “It gives me great pleasure and honour to know that what I will be doing is to further develop our league and establish a solid foundation for the present and future generations.” Mr Sumner said as regional general manager, his primary responsibility was to convey the development pillars of the ALF Country Victoria which were proven formulas for the development of country leagues.

Ekadi Awards: R. Ashby, M. Morton, J. Emsley IN TRYING slippery, muddy conditions Healesville continually pushed the ball forward but could not capitalise on the scoreboard. In the third quarter the Bloods found some good run and some good carry continually pumping the ball into the forward line and managing to break the game open. To Wesburn’s credit it continued to fight hard in the last quarter but in the challenging muddy conditions the Bloods still managed to run out convincing winners.

Winds hurt target scores By JOHN WOODS A GREAT attendance at the Woods Point Gun Club’s June TAG championships saw lots of keen competition but low scores due to the wintery conditions. Jim West from Bright and Peter Cornelius from Berwick started the day well with perfect 15/15 scores in the Eye Opener. Darren Box and Tania Taylor, publicans of the Woods Point Commercial Hotel, were the major sponsors for the day with the final event being

sponsored by club vice-president Peter West and his wife Ellen. The first event was a 40-target double barrel shot over two rounds of 20. The heavily treed background was not ideal but Daryl Ewert, Laurie Poile, Jim West and Trevor Ewert scraped together 38/40 each to go into a shoot off. After another 20 targets the four were still locked together with Daryl Ewert missing on target 21 followed closely by Jim West on target 23. Poile dropped target 27 leaving Trevor Ewert one shot from glory. He shot, he hit,

he won the TAG sash, 65/67 and the AA Grade prize as well. Jason Matthews took second in AA Grade, 36/40, with Polle winning A Grade 63/65, West second 62/65. Daryl Ewert took B Grade 38/40 with Chuck Lay second 37/40. C Grade saw another Poile, Luke, step up to take the win 34/40, with Matt Ewert just out of junior grade taking second 34/40. In the TAG handicap, Trevor Ewert was in the ascendancy with an excellent 19/20 from 21 metres, gaining

himself another one-metre handicap to 22. Seven competitors shot 18/20 to go into a shoot-off for the minor places - Luke Poile, Lachlan O’Halloran, Daryl Ewert, Ian Findlay, Peter West, Phillip Desmond and Jim West. After another 16 rounds Ewert was second 34/46, O’Halloran third 33/36 and Poile 32/36. The last championship was a 15pair Auto and Driven. Dave Hoon, a retired person of senior years, cranked up his weary bones to take the championship sash with a great 25/30 closely

followed by young whippersnapper Trevor Ewert on 24/30. Peter West’s 21/30 was good enough for third and Phillip Desmond took the fourth place prize 19/30. You can see by the scores that it was a tough event. Box and Tania’s Overall High Gun sash was won in a canter by Trevor Ewert 81/90, with the Hoon a close second 78/90. Next shoot is the Matlock Championships on 27 July. For inquiries phone John Wood, 9808 2693.
