As Yarra Ranges Council calls on the State Government to have the Don Valley community represented in the Haining Farm Implementation Committee, conservation groups, and the Department of Land, Water & Planning (DELWP) have defended the need, and methods, for revegetating the Don Valley farmland.

While the plan for the farm to be revegetated as part of the Yellingbo Conservation Area has been approved, community input on the draft design plan is currently open, with the final Conservation Area Plan set to be released in June. Council supported Cr Jim Child's motion to write to the Minister for Environment, Lily D'Ambrosio MP to appoint a Don Valley rep-

Tributes go to ‘Badger’





By Kath Gannaway Michael Morrissey, known as 'Badger' to almost everyone who knew him, was one of the good guys. His kindness to others and generous spirit, willingness to extend a helping hand, and his witty, outgoing personality were among many reflections made by friends following his death from cancer on Friday, 23 March. Friend, John Clark, described Michael as 'an honourable man' who had a great sense of humour and was a great storyteller. Another friend, Anne Duff, said Michael always put others first. "He was a special sort of person, a unique person who earned a lot of respect in the community," she said. While Michael had many close friends through his involvement with Rivendell mental health service in Healesville, almost everyone knew him. For a long time, he was the friendly face, the chatty, helpful man who collected the trolleys around the Coles car park in Healesville. Those who were fortunate enough to get to know him well, enjoyed his intelligent mind and interest in everything from cooking and horticulture to history and mythology. The sadness of losing Michael to cancer was expressed in words and tears at a graveside service in Healesville attended by family and friends on 27 March. So were the uplifting, funny, admiring and quirky stories that his friends swapped as they farewelled someone who had shared a very special connection. Michael was born on 16 February, 1961, in Cobram, the second son of William and Anne Morrissey and younger brother of Rodger. Growing up on a farm Michael's early years were filled with the sorts of things kids do on farms, riding on tractors, eating fresh fruit straight from the trees, swimming in the irrigation channel. As he got older it was hanging out with local kids and riding motorbikes. He was a bright and clever student who after leaving school in his early teens took on various jobs including as a rouseabout in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland. "Not long before leaving Cobram Michael met his best friend 'Rosie'," said his sister-inlaw Cathy Holschier who spoke on behalf of the family at the service. "Rosie and Michael, his beloved dog, hit the road together following the fruit-picking seasons and somehow ended up in Healesville," she said of the 17 years Michael and Rosie were great companions. She said his life changed however when on Black Saturday, 2009, Michael was involved in an accident in the Coles car park, suffering lifethreatening injuries that left him with ongoing health issues.

Michael Morrissey with ''Rosie II''. Picture: Kath Gannaway. "Michael was very proud of the Cert3 certificate in horticulture that he received working in local gardens as a volunteer, often talking about his youth on the farm where he learnt to prune fruit trees," Cathy said. He loved his work and had a solid work ethic. "What really stood out about Michael was that he always thought of others. Money didn't matter to him," Anne said. "He would do gardening for older people who needed that help and wouldn't charge them and was cooking meals for HICCI (Healesville Interchurch Community Care Inc.) right up until he went into hospital. "He was a very intelligent person who could converse on most subjects," she said. Friends knew Michael as an avid reader who enjoyed mythical books like Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit, loved listening to the radio, including BBC radio news which kept him switched on to what was happening around the world. An ordinary, extraordinary person, Michael Morrissey will be missed by his Healesville friends and his family. He is survived by his brother Roger, sisterin-law Cathy, nephew William, niece Emma and great-niece Charlotte.

Crank Up in action

IN BRIEF Operation Chromite An operation by Yarra Ranges Highway Patrol has highlighted the disappointing driving behaviour in the Yarra Ranges. Yarra Range Highway Patrol undertook the operation targeting drink and drug driving which ran from 6 April to 9 April. Yarra Ranges Highway patrol Sergeant Dave Macclefatrick said the results were disappointing. "We undertook an operation over this weekend, targeting drink and drug driving ... as of this morning (9 April) we have nine people who tested positive to drugs and two were caught for drunk driving," Sgt Macclefatrick said. "It's disappointing to see so many people affected by drugs on the Yarra Ranges Roads and something we'll continue to focus on into the future."

By Kath Gannaway Crank Up describes perfectly what happens on the weekend after Easter every year at the Upper Yarra Historical Museum in Yarra Junction. The museum, run by volunteers of the Upper Yarra Historical Society, was cranked and in overdrive over the weekend of 7 and 8 April with demonstrations of heritage vehicles, working machinery, draught horses, crafts, blacksmithing and more. The Crank Up also gave local community groups including the CFA, Red Cross and U3A the chance to promote their role in the community, and the Society to open the doors to their extensive collections of artefacts, books, photos and buildings to hundreds of people. The museum is open every Wednesday and Sunday. For more photos of the 2018 Crank Up visit .

Police are seeking information after the Warburton Football ground was set alight around midnight on 7 April. Detective Acting Sergeant Mark Hodgson at Yarra Ranges CIU said that the scoreboard was destroyed by a suspicious fire and the damages came to around $10,000 Rod Barnard, president at Warburton-Millgrove Football Club said the loss of the scoreboard was a big hit to the club which will play at the oval in round six and need the board. "We are going to put a new scoreboard up, but that isn't in place at the moment, we have to fast track it to get it ready for round six." "It makes things a bit difficult for us," Mr Barnard said. Anyone with information or who may have seen sucpicious activity on 7 April is urged to contact Yarra Ranges CIU on 9739 2300 or call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or to submit a confidential crime report on go to www.

Haining a bigger issue and has national significance From font page YRCA convenor Karen Garth released a statement on behalf of the Alliance which comprises 16 environment groups across the Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley. They say Haining Farm's future is more than a local issue. "The decisions made about Haining Farm are important beyond the interest of people living in the immediate vicinity of the farm. There are issues of important to the whole of the Yarra Valley and to the people of Melbourne and Victoria," they stated. Remnant populations of the Helmeted Honeyeater and the Lowland Leadbeater's Possum found only at Yellingbo are both threatened with extinction, imposing an obligation, they stated, on residents of Victoria and the Valley to protect and expand the remnant populations. "The Helmeted Honeyeater population is growing slowly with the aid of a captive-breed-

ing program and habitat restoration, but the population of the Lowland Leadbeater's Possum is in decline. While they remain confined to a small area of suitable habitat at Yellingbo, both remain at risk of extinction. "Additional populations must be established in suitable swampy riparian habitat, some of which is still present in the Yellingbo Conservation Area, including Haining Farm." Defending the online poll conducted through the Engage Victoria website, the statement said the people of Victoria were clear and decisive about what they wanted for Haining Farm. The poll was criticised by the YWG after Zoos Victoria and Greening Australia ran an email and facebook campaign to thousands of members urging them to vote for a revegetation model. YWG spokesperson Rick Houlihan told the Yarra Junction meeting that while over the entire Yarra Ranges Shire 59% voted for the farming options proposed, votes received from across Australia resulted in an 80% vote for the

revegetation option. YRCA say they recognise that some residents of Don Valley who live near Haining Farm have legitimate concerns about changes to their riparian crown land leases and "the perceived increase in bushfire risk from the revegetation of the farm" their concerns should not be allowed to override the interests of the wider Victorian community. "We accept the findings of the Haining Farm Bushfire Report," the statement says. "This is an issue for the state and has also national and international significance. "We can't let significant populations of our state emblems go extinct for want of revegetation on a small parcel of public land, which experts say has no significant measurable increase in fire risk." DELWP has also defended the process that went in to deciding on the chosen option saying it is detailed in the Haining Farm Engagement Report available on the Engage Victoria website.


Addressing a number of questions put by the Mail, DELWP say all three concepts put forward were assessed as not increasing bushfire risk and that the 13 person working group which included seven Don Valley residents, approved all three concepts for release to the broader community. Addressing some of the issues raised at the public meeting, DELWP says all the options, including the approved option, feature bushfire mitigation measures. Haining Farm will be incorporated into the Fire Operations plan for the Yarra District ensuring that it will be part of a rolling three-year plan which prescribes the bushfire mitigation works to occur, ensuring security of ongoing attention and funding for bushfire mitigation. They say measures to control pests and weeds are also included including a deerproof fence and treatment for weeds. The implementation of the project has been funded to $3.7 million.

aid Mark Menze Animal Aid CEO Every year between September and May, we find ourselves in the midst of kitten season. This means we have many more tiny mouths to feed. Right now, we have heaps of fantastic felines just waiting for their new families to walk through the door. We have black ones, white ones, gingers, torties and tabbies. We have cats who want to enjoy the quiet life and others looking for adventure. We have a feline to suit all families and all lifestyles. Owning a pet comes with a great deal of responsibility, but cats are one of the most lowmaintenance and independent pets that a person could own. Cats’ personalities vary as much as their colours; our Cattery Team always spend time getting to know each one of the cats to ensure we find the perfect family for them. Some cats are very self-sufficient, and therefore require far less work compared to other pets.

An exciting exhibition of Aboriginal art by Warlukurlangu Artists of the remote community of Yuendumu in the Northern Territory will showcase vibrant Aboriginal art with stories based on Aboriginal Dreamtime stories, a deep understanding of ecological systems and a profound love and respect for the country that provides. The exhibition, at the Senior Citizens Club Hall in Green Street, Healesville on 14 and 15 April will also include a sample of artwork Worawa Aboriginal College students.

If you are providing for their needs, and giving them them attention when they ask for it, they will be perfectly happy. Don’t worry, cats are great at letting you know if they need something. Other cats will be highly affectionate and seek your attention, they will want to be part of the family and in amongst the action. These cats want to hang out and relax, eat a little, play a little and snuggle a lot. Once you have taken a cat into your family, you will have a loyal friend for life. If you are planning to get a cat, you could consider getting two. They will entertain and play with one another, even if you have to work long hours, they’ll have each other. There are so many reasons you should own a cat, and right now is the perfect time. Studies have shown that owning a pet makes you live longer. The companionship that a cat brings can have significant effects on your physical and mental health, reducing anxiety and stress. When you adopt a cat from Animal Aid, you can be sure not only will you be improving your life, but you will be giving a cat a new home and a new lease on life. For the month of April, anyone who adopts a cat from Animal Aid will automatically be entered into our Cat Appreciation Month Competition and will be in the running to win the Animal Aid Cat Pamper Hamper valued at $200! Come down and see for yourself - cats are fantastic!

Tackling a tough topic By Kath Gannaway "We are going to tread into territory that is tough to talk about." Maree Crabbe was upfront about the confronting nature of some of the images and information she was about to deliver on pornography, young people and sexuality. Talking at The Memo in Healesville on 26 March to parents, teachers and other professionals working with children and young people, the nationally renowned author, filmmaker and expert on an increasingly damaging mega-million dollar industry broadly marketed as 'porn', she dissected the aggressively marketed online exposure to hardcore pornography which she said was now mainstream, pervasive and infinitely accessible. A core message was the impact on young males and females in their perception of sexuality which she said was increasingly informed by online pornography with serious implications for their capacity to develop a sexuality that incorporates mutual pleasure, respect and negotiation of free and full consent. "With the click of a button young people can access a vast array of pornography and their exposure can be intentional or accidental," she said citing curiosity, games and uninvited pop-ups and links to pornography sites as the means by which young people are exposed to images they do not have the critical skills to understand or analyse. Referencing 'men's' magazines of previous generations of porn, Ms Crabbe said "If you are thinking that's what porn is like, you are going to misunderstand what is happening today," she said. "Progressively is has become more aggressive and more aggressive towards women; it is more hardcore, more violent than ever before." In segments of filmed interviews with actors and producers in the industry, and with a teenage boy and girl on their experience of

"The loudness of the pornography voice is amplified by the silence of an opposing voice," Ms Crabbe said. Reducing inequality was one step in addressing the issue. "Pornography not only suggests that vio-

lence against women is OK, it says it's sexy," she said. She said equipping young people to critique what they see and to develop the skills required to resist pornography's influence were necessary tools. "And, we need to inspire young people that relationships and sex can be so much better than what they see in porn," she said.

Ms Crabbe said adults also need to support political and community leaders to understand the issues and how to address them. "We need to find creative and compelling ways to explore the issues." The forum "It's time we talked ... " was presented by Eastern Health, Chum Creek Primary School and Healesville High School.

with Dennis Reeves - Vice President Upper Yarra RSL

What is something people don't know about you? Once upon a time I quite enjoyed drawing, particularly in pen and ink. That turned to signwriting and I did quite few honour boards. What has been your most memorable moment? When I was about 18, I sang for the first time at the 3DB Hillbilly Round Up at Ferntree Gully. There were about 3000 people jammed into the place. What would your final meal be? Probably bread and water, but hopefully steak and salad. What event, past or present or future would you like to witness? A massed ANZAC service for the Yarra Valley. What is your favourite television show? Re-runs of New Tricks. I love it. What is your favourite book? When I was about 12 or 13 I read Reach for the Sky the story of pilot Douglas Bader by Paul Brickhill. I had quite an impact on me. What six guests, dead or alive, would you invite to a dinner party? Warburton RSL members, long gone but great company, Albert Fox and Malcolm McNab, an army sergeant who was a laugh a minute, full of knowledge and a fabulous trainer Chuckles

Chandler, comedian and trainer John Cleese, my grandmother's brother-in-law Ernest Nichols, a WW1 soldier with the horse teams with the artillery, and a family friend, also long gone, Raelene Ure. She was a commercial artist at Signs Publishing, full of scientific knowledge, musician, taught me to read music at about seven. What was your first or best film? Mum took to the theatre in Launceston to see Under The Big Top. What are you working on right now? Anzac Day preparation and badge sales to raise funds for RSL Welfare.

Student choir supreme On 29 March, 2018, a world-class performance of John Sebastian Bach's St Johns Passion took place at the Little Yarra Steiner School at Yarra Junction in a gymnasium with an acousticallyimproved ceiling arrangement. It is known that student choirs can be especially alive, but in the hands of the supreme artist-teacher Damien Callan they have been

outstanding. And, the soloists selected all had voices with sound, not just vibrato. The conductor sat out of the soloists' parts leaving these to individual typical Bach Baroque-style expression.

Inventi magic The opportunity to take part in a workshop run by two of Australia’s most talented chamber ensemble musicians, Ben Opie and Melissa Doecke, was a rare holiday treat for aspiring young musicians on Thursday, 5 April. The artistic directors of Inventi Ensemble were in Warburton for a series of holiday workshops. The younger members got to make their own instrument and use them to make music with Saint-Saens beloved ‘Carnival of the Animals’ while the older members learnt about improvisation, using their own instruments and with the help of the Inventi musicians bringing their new improvisations to life. Inventi Ensemble will return to Warburton as part of Yarra Ranges Council’s Classical Tracks series on Sunday, 15 April. Drawing together Australia’s finest soloists

and chamber musicians Inventi Ensemble defy stereotypes being equally at home premiering works at a new music festival, performing in Australia’s finest concert halls and chamber music series, or playing Bach from a three-tonne truck in a pop-up venue, and introducing new Australian music to young children in a library storytime project. Passionate about regularly performing Australian music, Inventi regularly commission new works from Australian composers. In addition to this they mark their own Inventi stamp on traditional works including an aweinspiring arrangement of Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony for five players. Tickets are $26, $22 concession with free A Minor Tix for 26 years and under. Book at . Phone 1300 368 333.

The Yarra Valley is renowned for its great food, wine, music and art ... why not its great conversation? The inaugural Art of Speech Community Festival from 13 to 15 April at The Memo in the heart of Healesville is a packed three days of events aimed at opening up that conversation to all ages. Hosted by Healesville Toastmasters Club the festival will highlight the opportunity, excitement and fun to be had by embracing the spoken word. Starting on Friday the 13th with Spooky Story Night, the festival will kick off with a ghoulishly good time. Who doesn’t love a creepy crawly story told by professional storytellers? Dress the part for the chance to win a prize! Following on is writer and performer Simon Oates’ theatrical performance of “Orpheus in the Underworld”, a contemporary telling of an ancient tale through original songs and narrative. It’s a journey you won’t want to miss. Throughout Saturday and Sunday a rolling program of events will fill The Memo with workshops, storytelling, games, artists’ talks, a community debate, a Toastmasters demonstration meeting, inspirational speeches, performance poetry, and more. Highlights include the Storytelling Cave, the Games Room which will showcase modern gaming at its finest with demonstrations and plenty of opportunity to get involved, hear some of Yarra Ranges most articulate, and witty, young people speak out as part of the Junior Speakers segment, while ‘A Strange Business’, an official Melbourne Comedy Festival Event, brings together a wacky degustation meal and an hilarious take on some very questionable occupations!

Exit Theatre will perform ‘Springer’, a monodrama in which the writing brutally highlights the paradox of a simple man, whose fierceness and strength underlay his success, yet who was indefensible to all that was morally vacuous around him. Performed by Kristof Kaczmarek it is powerful word-theatre. Workshops include a Women’s Empowerment Workshop, Artful Governance Workshop and the Zines workshop by artist and Toastmaster Bernadette Towan. Creating Zines is a hands-on approach, suitable for all ages, to finding the unique voice and sharing a story or message in a nonverbal way. Check out the full program, including a great selection of free events, $5 workshops and other ticketed performances at www.

What’s brewing at Lilydale? Rare bomb from a genius The festival season in the Yarra Valley is far from done with the Yarra Valley Beer & Cider Festival back at Lilydale Showgrounds on Saturday, 14 April from 11am to 5pm. An initiative of the Rotary Club of Wandin, in conjunction with some passionate community beer and cider lovers, the focus of the festival is to provide patrons with an opportunity to sample some of the finest boutique beer and cider that Victoria has to offer, including many brewers from the Yarra Valley. The Beer & Cider Festival is a great chance to kick back with friends and enjoy your choice of beer or cider (or both) along with quality food stalls and entertainment. The festival is family-friendly with free admission for under-18s accompanied by a parent or guardian. Obviously, this comes with an ‘alcohol-free’ condition of entry! Drinks are served on a token system so visit

Based on the novel by Ernest Cline, Ready Player One is a rare bomb from legendary director Steven Spielberg. In an overpopulated future, the virtual reality game OASIS has taken the world by storm. Upon his death, James Halliday (Mark Rylance), its reclusive creator, promises ownership of OASIS to the player who finds three keys hidden within, and elite player Wade (Tye Sheridan) resolves to find these keys before a nefarious businessman (Ben Mendelsohn) can claim them. It’s rare to find a film so earnest and lively on the surface, but so soulless, philosophically wrong-headed and lacking in self-awareness beneath. Wade’s opening narration explicitly frames

OASIS as an unreal escape from uncomfortable reality. Combined with the shallow characters and their lack of growth, this deprives the film of tension and promotes an unhealthy degree of escapism into pop-culture. Wade and his motley friends do face major peril in the real world, but it’s all for defending a popular illusion, meaning that the central conflict feels intangible and unimportant. The action scenes are vibrant and have wellchoreographed moments, but are mostly confusing CGI punch-ups of little consequence. The film has bland characters and a generic fetch-quest plot amid droves of pop-culture references, of which most don’t factor meaningfully into the plot. These swarms of hollow references are also emblematic of just how much nostalgia has swamped modern blockbuster filmmaking. While superficially exciting, Ready Player One is arguably one of the last films we need right now. - Peter Douglas

Warburton bowls results

Pollies keeping up the pace at races

By Ron Hottes Wednesday 14 April: Stroke & M. McGrann 'Bag day' - and the winner, with a stunning Nett 66, was the ever-reliable Neil Leckenby. Fair-dinkum - this man plays to his handicap (or better!) more than anyone else in the club. Well done, Mr Consistent! The r/up, with an excellent score, as well, of Nett 67, was Mr Reliable John Hall (hey, John, you're the Pres. - now your golf is meant to 'go off the boil!!'). Balls went down to 72. NTPs were won by Mr Pres. (9th), and Ian Garside, for a superb 2nd shot on the 10th (yes, he got his birdie!). Saturday 7 April: Stroke and Monthly Medal. A Grade, and the medal, was taken out by Ken White with a solid Nett 67. Martin Garthwaite won B Grade with a fine 68 (hey, Marty, that handicap will soon shrink to your previous number of a few years ago!). If you netted 73 or better, you scored a ball. NTP winners, on the day, were Barry Maltman (3rd), Ken White (5th), Ms Nursey (9th; and holidays clearly agree with you, Meredith!). The V-Man Sargsyan (12th) & to Captain Cross, who has appeared to 'own' the difficult 15th recently!

By Kath Gannaway Courtney Pace wasn't showing any favourites on Saturday bringing home a winner in both the Sally Brennan Labor For Eildon Open Trophy and the Cindy McLeish MP for Eildon Golden Thong. Riding Fold to a win in the third, and Victorian Crown in the fifth, Pace, who rode her first winner at Healesville, said (perhaps prophetically) "they were completely different races, but with the same good result," Ms Pace and both Ms McLeish and Ms Brennan spoke in their presentations of the great atmosphere that Healesville Amateur Racing Club provides each season and commended the volunteer race committee and helpers who dedicate themselves keeping Healesville on the radar as one of, if not the best, picnic racing meetings in Victoria. See more photos on the Healesville Races gallery at

Eildon Labor candidate Sally Brennan also got to present to jockey Courtney Pace after she won in the 3rd race. 179646

Bus to help crackdown The first of a new fleet of alcohol and drug buses are set to hit the road to help a Victoria Police crackdown on drunk and drug-affected drivers. Police Minister Lisa Neville on Tuesday 27 March joined Victoria Police and the Transport Accident Safety Commission (TAC) to watch officers put their training to the test, using the new state-of-the-art bus in an operation to catch drug and alcohol-affected drivers in Southbank. A total of 10 buses, funded by the Labor Government in the Victorian Budget 2015-16, rolled of the production line before the Easter long weekend. The buses, an investment of $11.7 million, were built by specialist vehicle manufacturers Brimarco, based in Ballarat and Derrimutbased Byron Wade. The new fleet of alcohol and drug buses will replace the existing fleet by March 2019 and will give police greater flexibility in targeting locations across the state. The new fleet includes six smaller buses that can access locations that are currently difficult for larger buses to reach, including narrow and difficult-to-access country roads. This flexibility means police can target more areas, more often and keep our roads safe. The buses are fitted out with the latest technology, including LED lights, Guardian Detection System, side lights, a rear-mounted variable message sign and programmable emergency lights and siren control. About 3000 full-licence drivers are caught with blood-alcohol concentrations of between 0.05 and 0.07 each year. In 2016, more than 55 per cent of drivers

From left are TAC's Joe Calafiore, Doug Fryer from Victoria Police and Police Minister Lisa Neville. 179615 and riders killed on the roads were drug or alcohol impaired. Over the Labor Day Long weekend alone, police reported around one in six drivers tested had drugs in their system. Victoria proudly leads the country in its efforts to target drug-drivers, with the Labor Government providing permanent funding for police to conduct 100,000 drug tests every year. Ms Neville said the buses will help to reduce instances of road trauma. "The new bus will help police make our roads safer by targeting those under the influence of either drugs or alcohol, who are risking lives by getting behind the wheel," she said. Meanwhile, TAC chief executive officer, Joe Calafiore, said it was a great initiative. "We don't want to see any more people killed or injured because of drink-driving or drug-driving - so the better-equipped Victoria Police is to target this behaviour, the safer our roads will be," he said.
