that the community gets involved in maintaining their parks and thanked Parks Victoria for their work. "For people in Badger Creek, the Badger Weir Park is our backyard." Member for Eildon Cindy McLeish weighed




The Badger Creek Picnic Ground has officially been re-opened to the public on Wednesday 10 April after the area was destroyed by heavy storms in October 2016. Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D'Ambrosio officially reopened the site, which received $1.69 million in funding from the state government. "It's fantastic to see this well-loved area reopened and improved for locals and tourists visiting this beautiful place. "I encourage people to get back to Badger Weir Picnic Grounds and experience these new and improved facilities," Ms D'Ambrosio said. New barbecues, picnic tables, shelters, paths, a new toilet block, signage fencing, a new footbridge and a staircase are some of the improvements made by Parks Victoria to revitalise the public space. Parks Victoria Area Chief Ranger Conrad Annal said that prior to the storm damage the picnic grounds received around 250,000 visitors per year. "I had never seen anything like this before, the number of trees and the size of the trees. So it took some time just to get into the site," he said. "We had to cut our way into the site, and even once we had to rebuild, we had to use a lot of heavy machinery. "It wasn't just a case of using some chainsaws and a trailer, it was a lot of large machines to move the large amount of trees that we had," Mr Annal said. The Badger Community Group volunteered their time to assist Parks Victoria with some of the finishing touches in the lead up to the reopening. Badger Community Group chairperson Doris Pozzi said, "Conrad came out from Parks Victoria and he very kindly spoke to our group to tell us what the progress was and what they planned to do." "We've been really pleased to build a relationship with Parks Victoria, so that when new jobs come up we can be involved and be helping. "Now that we've mulched the gardens, they're (Parks Victoria) going to get some plants and we'll come and plant them and stuff like that," Ms Pozzi said. Ms Pozzi said she believes it's important

IN BRIEF New aged care beds

Council wants busy road sealed

Holmwood Aged Care officially opened its 38room extension with Yarra Ranges Mayor Tony Stevenson. Celebrations took place at the Healesville centre on Thursday 4 April, including speeches from Cr Stevenson and Holmwood’s Rob Wylie and live entertainment. Resident David Fulton cut a ribbon and fellow resident June Cooper cut a celebratory cake. Staff, residents and their family members, volunteers and special guests were in attendance. The extension included a new entrance, administration and work areas, residential rooms with ensuites, a coffee hub, activities room, private dining room, lounge and dining area, hairdressing salon, an outdoor terrace and a landscaped court yard. It’s known as Townsend after Nurse Melina Townsend, who came to Healesville in the 1920s and established a small hospital on the corner of Ryrie Street and Lilydale Road. She was a well-respected midwife and a great friend and advisor to the local community. The extension has doubled the size of the facility, not just in area but the number of residents and staff members. Holmwood Aged Care has plans for a further dementia wing extension.

By Jed Lanyon Residents of Yarra Glen and Yarra Ranges Council are hoping that the federal government's pledge of $300 million to seal roads in the Dandenong Ranges and surrounding areas will mean that Forest Street will finally be sealed. Forest Street runs along Yarra Glen Primary School and Yarra Glen Childcare Centre inviting high levels of traffic that can lift up dust, especially in the drier months. Councillor Fiona McAllister said that the road gets busy during its peak hours. "If you come here when there's school drop off, even though children are dropped off on the other side as well, you might see 20 or 30 cars sitting there waiting to pick up and drop kids off. "To have a town like Yarra Glen where most of the streets are sealed and then we've got this road which is right on a growing primary school and a busy childcare centre and it's not sealed, it's something that we've been pushing for in the community for decades," she said. Forest Street is unique to the area as most surrounding roads have been sealed, some being very recent. "Ellis Road was actually sealed last year, so this is kind of the missing piece of the puzzle and there are other roads around the Yarra Ranges which are exactly the same," said Cr McAllister. "I think if the commitment is made, we get to spend the money in the best way for the community and Forest Street would definitely be one of our top five priorities." The federal funding will enable 500 kilometres of dirt roads in the Yarra Ranges and Cardinia Shire to be sealed over a 10-year period. The funding announcement was the result of an advocacy partnership between the two councils and both shires will now receive $150 million to go towards sealing roads. "It'd be brilliant, what we need is to make

Picture: JED LANYON sure that both sides of government are committing for the money to come to us so that we can go ahead and get these types of roads fixed," Cr McAllister said. "The $150 million for us would make a huge difference we could actually get ahead of the game." Roads like Forest Street that are in urbanised areas will be built using a special charge scheme, whereby construction would be co-

funded by landowners and the federal government, with this funding package providing a substantial subsidy. Landowners will have the option to finance contributions over a 10-year period, or pay up front to receive a discount. However this adds another challenge as much of Forest Street runs along the boundary of Yarra Glen Primary School.

Green not forgotten in new planning rules By Casey Neill New planning rules for Healesville are on their way to the Planning Minister for approval and make it clear that the Healesville Green hasn't been forgotten. Yarra Ranges Councillors agreed to adopt the Yarra Ranges Planning Scheme Amendment C163 Implementation - Part 1 Healesville Structure Plan at their Tuesday 9 April meeting, as well as sending it to Richard Wynne. It implements a number of actions identified in the Healesville Structure Plan, and proposes rezoning public land into zones that reflect current and future use.

It also applies an Environmental Audit Overlay to two parcels of land. Councillor Fiona McAllister said the report made it clear that the council hadn't given up on the grassed land parcel at 13 Green Street known as the Healesville Green. "Recent communication with VicTrack shows they have more important things to worry about than the future of Green Street," she said. "May that continue for a very long time." The Mail reported last July that the VicTrackowned open space on the corner of River and Green streets would go on the market after the

shire declined to buy it for $1.185 million. The council leased the land for many years, but the lease was terminated last year. VicTrack is seeking to have the land rezoned. "The steps VicTrack has taken to dispose of the land are acknowledged," the planning scheme amendment report said. "The disposal, however, has not yet taken place and there are other avenues by which Council may acquire the land in accordance with the Healesville community's wishes." So the council resolved to "investigate options for a long term lease of the land or acquisition of the site".

Operation Nexus Operation Nexus is a state-wide road policing operation running over the Easter holiday period that aims to increase driver awareness and journey planning, while reducing road trauma. This year 93 people have lost their lives on Victorian roads, in comparison to 58 last year. Victoria Police will implement a strategically co-ordinated and tactically-focused approach to road policing, targeting the key contributing factors to road trauma - speed, alcohol and drug impairment, driver distraction, fatigue and seatbelts. Motorists are asked to stay within the speed limit, not drink alcohol or take drugs and drive, leave their mobile phone out of reach, wear their seatbelt, and make sure they are well rested. Drivers are reminded to plan their trip, be patient and ensure that they take at least a 15 minute break every two hours. Drivers planning to travel during this period can expect to see an increase in police vehicles on major freeways and highways throughout the state.


How would this yard look at your place


Sealing works will be conducted between Black Spur Drive and Dom Dom Saddle between 7am and 5pm from Monday 15 to Wednesday 17 April. Traffic management will be in place, with speed set at 40km/h. Traffic will be reduced to a single lane on Maroondah Highway between Narbethong and Healesville for works starting Monday 15 April. Delays up to 15 minutes can be expected, so VicRoads suggests drivers plan ahead to avoid congestion. For the latest traffic information around the state visit or download the VicTraffic app.

Animal Aid is a place of refuge for the lost, unwanted and abandoned animals in our community. We work diligently to reunite lost pets and give a first-rate second chance to homeless animals. When an animal comes through our doors, we do our best to learn as much as we can about them. The very first thing we will do is scan them for a microchip - if they are ‘chipped’ and the owner’s details are up to date we are able to quickly and easily contact the owner. When much-loved pets arrive at Animal Aid, we can tell they have been well cared for and know their family will be desperate to have them home - yet they aren’t microchipped and the shelter team has no way to contact their family. With one simple procedure pet owners can ensure that if their pet is lost, they will be notified quickly and their furry friend will be back

Budget rate hikes By Casey Neill Ryrie Ward ratepayers will face the biggest rates hike, according to the Yarra Ranges Council draft 2019-'20 budget. The State Government capped the shire's average rate rise at 2.5 per cent. But rates are based on property valuations, so some ratepayers will see higher increases while others will see a drop. The average valuation in Ryrie increased 4.77 per cent, so rates in the likes of Healesville and Yarra Glen will increase an average 6.61 per cent. Melba Ward valuations went backwards 3.66 per cent, so rates there will drop 1.64 per cent on average. Chirnside and Walling rates will also drop.

The average residential valuation increased 0.48 per cent On farming properties, the average rate rise will be 4.61 per cent. Commercial property rates will increase by 3.79 per cent across the shire and industrial property rates are to rise 5.36 per cent. "What we're looking for tonight is for council to start the process," Councillor Jim Child said at the Tuesday 9 April Yarra Ranges Council meeting. "Our community can have an input. "I think it's important that our community knows how we're managing our future." The council proposed spending $2.26 million on drainage and $3.69m on footpaths and cycle ways. There's $16.64m allocated for parks and

open space and $6.79m for recreational, leisure and community facilities. Roads are set for a $10.89m boost and buildings $27.97m. "The works being done this year on the Warburton Mountain Bike Destination, the Yarra Valley Trail and The RidgeWalk will be supported by the budget, drawing on local funding and federal and state grants," Mayor Tony Stevenson said. Budget submissions can be made online or in writing to PO Box 105, Lilydale 3140 by 5pm on Wednesday 8 May. The council will consider submissions at a special meeting on 4 June. Submissions are Visit the website or call 1300 368 333 for more information.

Healesville SES needs your help By Jed Lanyon Healesville SES is on the lookout for new volunteers to boost its member numbers. Lucy Aston, section leader for recruitment at Healesville SES, said the unit was really inclusive and accepted everyone. “We need anybody as long as you’re over 18, we don’t care who you are or what job you do. We will happily have you,” she said. The Healesville SES Unit has about 20 people on hand at the moment. “There’s a lot of training that is also useful outside of the SES, like for your job or just general outdoor life," Ms Aston said. Some of the many different training opportunities include road crash training, chainsaw training, safely working at heights, truck licensing, flood and storm response, traffic

management and urban search and rescue. Volunteer Andrew Worley said: “There are roles for everybody regardless of how little time they have available.” Members of the Healesville SES team shared why they found volunteering to be so rewarding. “You make really good friends,” Ms Aston said. Mr Worley said: “If I had to pick one thing, it’s giving back to the community that we live in, that’s the biggest one." Healesville SES will be holding an open day on 18 May featuring a sausage sizzle, road crash rescue demonstrations, Patty the platypus mascot and activities for kids. The unit invited prospective volunteers to attend one of its weekly meetings to learning more.

Cheques that need a check A Lilydale woman allegedly wrote and cashed 45 cheques using a stolen chequebook. Lilydale CIU detectives arrested the 49-year-old on Thursday 21 March. They allege the deceptions occurred between June and November last year and she obtained $7500. She is due to face charges of obtaining property by deception at Ringwood Magistrates' Court on 9 August.

Enrol to vote Australians must ensure they are enrolled to vote in the federal election before 8pm on Thursday 18 April. Electoral Commissioner Tom Rogers said all Australian citizens aged 18 years and over were required by law to enrol and vote in the 18 May poll. "Australians must also update their address details on the electoral roll if they have moved, or changed their name," he said. Anyone unsure of their status can check online via the AEC website or call 13 23 26. "A record 96.5 per cent of eligible Australians are currently enrolled, which is an extraordinary achievement," Mr Rogers said. "At the same time, there are still people who remain unenrolled who need to take action before the deadline." The best and quickest way to enrol or update details is to visit Australians unable to go online can pick up a paper enrolment form at any AEC office or Australia Post. Australians turning 18 years of age on or before 18 May should also enrol and vote in the federal election.

Let's hear it for Len Yarra Ranges Council stalwart Len Cox received a gift from the heart - and the scrap heap - at the Tuesday 9 April council meeting. The Monbulk Men's Shed hand crafted a wooden sign for the veteran councillor in honour of his 35 years in local government. They salvaged and recycled the wood from hard waste collection and used the large black letters L, E and N from an old shire library. Mayor Tony Stevenson presented the name plaque with his congratulations to Cr Cox and to Crs Noel Cliff and Terry Avery, who'll this year notch up 20 and 15 years on council respectively. "Just in case any of you don't know who I am," Cr Cox said, placing the marker on the desk in front of him with a chuckle.

There will be a federal election of Members of the House of Representatives and Senators to the 46th Parliament on Saturday 18 May 2019. To nominate as a candidate in the federal election a person must be 18 years of age or older, an Australian citizen and entitled to be an elector able to vote in federal electoral events. In addition, a nominee must ensure and declare that they are not disqualiied by section 44 of the Australian Constitution. The Australian Electoral Commission will be holding a number of local candidate information sessions to assist people interested in nominating as candidates for the federal election. Sessions will give an overview of the electoral process, including nomination procedures.

Save the date Mount Evelyn Street Party organisers have announced the date for this year's bash - Sunday 27 October. "You've got plenty of time to polish up your dancing shoes, choose an outfit and organise the gang for a rockin' day of fun, fun, fun. "

What's that town again?


Mayor Tony Stevenson made a rare slip of the tongue at the Tuesday 9 April Yarra Ranges Council meeting. Talking about how positive the Healesville Structure Plan would be for the town, he mistakenly said the plan would be great for Warburton. "You've brainwashed me Cr Child," he said after his colleagues pointed out the error. "I'll wash my mouth out."

The nomination process for people wishing to stand as a candidate now includes a qualiication checklist that must be completed for the nomination to be accepted. The qualiication checklist relates to a candidate’s eligibility to be elected to Parliament under section 44 of the Australian Constitution. It includes a number of mandatory questions and requires documentation in response to any claim that an intending candidate has made regarding the renunciation or loss of foreign citizenship.

Request for seal Yarra Ranges Council accepted a request to seal Clements Avenue and Verona Street in Belgrave South at the Tuesday 9 April meeting. Councillors referred the 31-signature petition to the relevant staff for further action.

Candidates’ qualiication checklists and additional documents will be published on the AEC website following the declaration of nominations for the election.

It's a miracle! An item was removed from the Yarra Ranges Council meeting agenda last-minute on Tuesday 9 April. Councillor Noel Cliff had submitted a request for a leave of absence after missing the past three council meetings due to ill health. Thankfully he was well enough to make it on Tuesday so the motion was not needed. All the best for a speedy recovery, Noel!

Voting is compulsory for Australian citizens aged 18 years and over. If you don’t vote, you may be prosecuted. If you vote more than once it is a criminal offence.

Treasures in the flames By Jed Lanyon A Healesville artist and silversmith is helping Black Saturday survivors to protect treasures salvaged from the flames. Tim Peel opened exhibition Too Precious at Silvermist Studio in Healesville on Saturday 6 April. Mr Peel has designed and crafted four modern day reliquaries using precious metals and gemstones. A reliquary is a vessel for precious objects. These four will protect a small item is considered ‘too precious to be left behind’ for four locals directly affected by the Black Saturday Bushfires in 2009. Mr Peel, who was awarded a grant from Regional Arts Victoria, approached the survivors and asked if he could design and make a reliquary for each of them. “After the fires I witnessed so many trying to come to terms with the loss of precious and valuable things that can never be replaced,” he said. “And where people had objects they recovered from the devastation or saved in the moments before leaving, they are all too precious to be left behind again. “I knew I could create a vessel to hold their items in the hope it might help to continue the healing and the positive experiences that came after the fires." Mr Peel has worked closely with each person to create four distinctly different works of art, which will be exhibited with their ‘too precious’ items alongside design sketches and notes in the window of his studio.

Crumbz Craft owner Kay Trembath and staff member Alison Boyd accepted the award at a Rotary meeting. “I was just so humbled by the award, I was very excited to win it and I’m very proud of all of us here,” Ms Trembath said. “When you’re doing what you love and somebody recognises you for it, it just says that we’re doing the right thing, but it’s also nice that what we do is what people want.” Ms Trembath’s prize was a pastel painting of a helmeted honeyeater by renowned local artist Denise Smith, who regularly hosts art workshops at Crumbz Craft. “I am particularly thrilled that Crumbz Craft has won the award this year, it’s lovely to know the winner and know where my painting is going,” Ms Smith said. “I have known Kay for coming up for 10 years now, and have always loved her stylish shop and the way she does business. “When she approached me to run painting workshops in her craft room I was delighted as she and her staff are such fun, positive, creative people to work alongside and we have had some terrific workshops there over the years. “Kay’s commitment to the community and her customer service is spot on, every customer and person browsing in her shop is made to

Ms Smith was a volunteer guide at Healesville Sanctuary for years and always paints animals and birds that are endangered, many of which are available to purchase from Crumbz Craft. Ms Trembath moved to Healesville and opened Crumbz Craft in 2012.

Record quantities of the flu vaccine will be available to protect Victorians this year. Health Minister Jenny Mikakos is encouraging Victorians to get their flu shot ahead of winter and do their part to stop the spread of flu. More than two million free vaccinations are expected to be administered before the flu season takes hold. "We're making the flu shot free for kids under five, because vaccination is safe, effective and it saves lives," Ms Mikakos said. More than 48,000 Victorians were diagnosed with influenza in 2017, and 11,612 last year. Flu diagnoses this year are triple what they were at the same time last year. "You never forget the flu, so don't forget your flu shot," Ms Mikakos said. "Coming down with the flu is not like catching a cold. "It hits you quickly and hard, and it can last for weeks. "And for some people, it can be deadly." Victorians can also get their flu shot at a participating pharmacy without the need to visit a doctor. Pregnant women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and Victorians with a chronic condition are also eligible for a free flu vaccination as part of the National Immunisation Program.

For the community good Kinglake Produce and Artisan Market commenced in the heart of the Kinglake in 2010. The market was started on the basis that local farmers believed there was a need to provide the community with a range of fresh locally grown produce in the one convenient location. With the Kinglake Ranges being a strong and long-established farming area, what better way to bring fruit and vegetables direct to the public? Hence the market began with a small group of community members coming together with an idea to forge what is now the Kinglake Produce and Artisan market. In 2016 the market moved to its new location at Ellimatta Youth Centre, 94 WhittleseaKinglake Road, Kinglake. It was decided the location should be permanent and the committee is very proud to be able to operate all year round on the fourth Sunday of every month. In early 2018 the market was given a new lease of life, and although it is still run by a small group of volunteers and stallholders, it has grown considerably. Proceeds raised from stallholder fees go directly to Rotary for community projects, local community groups and volunteer organisations. The committee prides themselves on bringing only the best of the best to the community and are continuing to improve and grow their beautiful market. They aim to bring a huge range of artisan and quality produce stalls to Kinglake and the many people that visit them. The team at Kinglake Market welcome en-

Cire launches play space To further support families with young children in the Upper Yarra, Cire is about to launch an indoor play space at its Yarra Junction Community Hub. The new play space will provide mums and dads and their pre-schoolers with a welcoming and comfortable venue to have fun and meet others. From May, it will operate between 9am and 11am on Wednesdays and 1pm and 3pm on Thursdays at no cost to participants. There will be toys and other resources as well as coffee and tea-making facilities for parents and carers. Relevant information sessions will be offered subject to the needs of participants. Extending to the broader community, the venue and equipment will be available to other parent/child-focused groups to hire at affordable rates. Located in the heart of Yarra Junction, it will be a perfect gathering point for shared outings to other nearby community facilities including the outdoor playground, Yarra Centre and the library. Cire Community Hubs executive manager Laura Shortis said Cire was delighted to be expanding its services for families with young children. "At Cire, we are all about meeting the needs of the diverse communities we serve and this initiative really ticks a box," Laura said. "There is a need for an informal all-weather play space, in addition to our successful and more structured Gumboots program." Cire's community development manager, Lynne Kennedy, said parents connecting with their toddlers and others at a similar stage in their lives was vital for the overall development of their youngsters as well as strengthen-

Laura Shortis and Lynne Kennedy. ing the wider community. "It is so important for mums, dads and their toddlers to have fun together and also meet others going through similar experiences and challenges," Ms Kennedy said. Cire is one of the largest and most reputable not-for-profits serving the Yarra Ranges. Its core focus areas are Cire Community School for disadvantaged young people; Cire Training, its registered training organisation (RTO); Cire Children's Services which includes long day care with integrated kindergarten programs, out of school hours care and playgroups; and Cire Community Hubs.

Achieving student dreams The Little Yarra Steiner School extends from kindergarten through to Year 12 and follows an international system known as Steiner or Waldorf education. This unique educational alternative is fully accredited as meeting all state and national standards in Australia and aims to approach education in a holistic manner. Situated on acreage in the picturesque Yarra Valley, Little Yarra offers a beautiful learning environment that is in harmony with natural surroundings. "Every child is valued for their own individuality and encouraged to grow and develop to their full potential," Little Yarra Steiner School Education Administrator John Stewart said. "The academic education of our students is enhanced by developing strong relationships with peers and teachers in an atmosphere of support, co-operation and commitment." As part of recent Easter celebrations, Classes 7 to 12 performed a complex choral piece work by Bach called St John's Passion in St Paul's Cathedral in the heart of Melbourne. The work is performed in German with the recitatives in English. It originally started small with Year 11 and 12 students and teachers and has grown to a whole school involvement offering a gift to the community each year. Students learn about giving to the community at Easter and the joy that comes with it. This year 1000 spectators came to the cathedral to enjoy what has become an ingrained tradition for Little Yarra. Music Coordinator Damien Callan said the students do an excellent and polished performance of this complex and difficult work, and most importantly, they love it. "A positive culture has grown amongst the students over the past 14 years and alumni

regularly return after completing their VCE studies to be part of the performance, singing and playing in the orchestra," he said. Inspiring and cultivating a love of learning and a reverence for all life in students is an important part of how Little Yarra teachers guide and teach. "We make extensive use of cross-curricular integration," Mr Stewart said. "Wherever possible we create enriching

p: 5967 1953 e:

learning experiences by integrating drawing, painting, modelling, drama, movement or music with language work, mathematics, history, geography or the sciences." In addition to a strong academic programme, students experience music by singing and learning to play a variety of instruments in both individual and ensemble contexts. They also develop a wide range of skills through crafts such as knitting, sewing, felt work, ceramics, painting and woodwork.


The Little Yarra Steiner School is currently accepting enrolment enquiries for a limited number of vacancies in selected classes. Interested families to visit the Little Yarra website at, find them on Facebook, or contact the school directly to arrange a tour. Upcoming Information Sessions are; kindergarten (11.30am Saturday 19 October), primary school (9.15am Thursday 5 September) and secondary school (7.00pm Monday 20 May).

Outstanding outcomes Upper Yarra Secondary College is entering its next exciting phase this year with the construction of a new STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) pavilion. The new pavilion will house four brand new science spaces to engage students in a broad range of sciences where students can learn in flexible teaching labs that encourage collaboration and thinking. “The space will include general purpose classrooms to be converted for specialist STEAM teaching and learning. In addition to the class spaces, there will be central open areas for students, brand new toilets and locker facilities,” Principal Scott Tully said. “The new facility aims to further enhance the wonderful educational opportunities currently offered in STEAM; ranging from coding to all manner of robotics and right through to aviation, where students can earn a pilot’s licence to operate drones commercially. In 2020, we will be offering viticulture, when our

in-house vineyard matures. “We continue to make strong, positive changes that are responsive to student and community needs. Recently we introduced a Year 7 Breakfast Club for two days a week (to be expanded to the rest of the school after the trial period).” The student leaders of the college are young people who are encouraged and supported to make a positive difference in their community. “Recently our senior VCAL students organised and a Clean-Up Australia Day event at the college and Yarra Valley surrounds, whilst other students are fundraising and organising activities in support of worthy causes such as Walk for Autism and The Greatest Shave,” Mr Tully said. “Our elected year level captains regularly meet with the principal team to express the opinions and recommendations of their peers to continue to drive relentless improvement across all aspects of the college.”

Principal of Upper Yarra Secondary College Mr Scott Tully believes that the greatest source of pride for his college is the outstanding outcomes being achieved - for and with students.

Mr Tully said extra-curricular activities are thriving within the college and support student interest. “After the success of Game of Tiaras in 2018, we are excited to present the 2019 school production Superheroes Unite!” he said. “We are experiencing phenomenal success with our inter-school sporting program, including the addition of clay target shooting, motocross and equestrian this year. Students can participate in chess activities and tournaments, art and craft club, reptile club, turtle

and fish care; there is something for everyone!” Mr Tully believes that the greatest source of pride for his college is the outstanding outcomes being achieved - for and with students. “Student enrolment in tertiary education and students’ successfully gaining employment continues to rise. It is satisfying to see our students are leaving the college confident to begin their young adult lives,” he said. Upper Yarra Secondary College is conducting an open night on Thursday, May 2 in the college theatre at 7pm.

WAKE UP TO THIS VIEW! THIS family home will certainly surprise prospective buyers, the agent says. It's much bigger than expected and showcases panoramic views, the agent says, and is in a sought-after area. Sitting in the light-filled lounge room or opening the sliding double glazed doors and lazing on a large decking will be the positions of choice to relax and unwind after a busy day, the agent says, and to let the troubles float off into the valley and mountain views. The large family home has four oversized bedrooms, the master with ensuite including a huge double shower, plenty of robes and one of the bedrooms even has a built-in desk and study area. A second living zone with an adjacent bedroom would be the ideal space to house extended family, the agent says, or could be the perfect area to run a business from home. The car accommodation is well catered for with external and internal parking in an over-sized double garage, providing ample room to cater for a work shop, with internal access directly to the foyer, and there is a bonus sneaky under-house storage area that could become a wine cellar or a space to keep all of the items a family rarely uses but just can’t seem to part with. Outdoors there's an array of fruit trees, chook pen, garden shed, a sunny open lawn area and a private entertaining zone with wood fire and pizza oven as features. The new owner will be able to walk to public transport, the Warburton Trail, the local milk bar, a bakery and even a hardware shop. ●

Life finds a way in forest By Derek Schlennstedt These school holiday’s take a step back in time and see the giant megafauna that have called Healesville Sanctuary home. Marvel at these towering, roaring and moving mega beasts that roamed the northern hemisphere millions of years ago. Come face-to-face with one of the meateating Terror Birds, Giant Ground Sloth, Sabretoothed Cat, Woolly Rhinoceros and towering Woolly Mammoths. Of course, These MegaBeasts are eerily familiar with some of their relatives still in existence today, but on a much smaller scale. You can see - and hear - these MegaBeats nestled within the Sanctuary’s woodlands trail and be sure to look out for the Mega Keepers on your journey who will be giving Mega Keeper Talks about these creatures from the ancient past. They are mega-excitable and love sharing quirky facts about each and every one of the MegaBeasts. Discover why these megafauna went extinct by exploring their stories and helping the team at Healesville Sanctuary use this knowledge to help fight the extinction of 21 modernday threatened species. From 6 April - 14 July, visitors can marvel at these MegaBeasts that have taken up residence at Healesville Sanctuary. Entry to the MegaBeasts trail is included with general admission and open 9am-5pm every day. MegaBeasts is part of a 100-day Autumn/ Winter program of Dinosaurs running across Healesville Sanctuary, Melbourne Zoo and Werribee Open Range Zoo.

Look out for the Mega Keepers on your journey who will be giving Mega Keeper Talks about these creatures from the ancient past.

These School holiday’s take a step back in time.

Pay matinee, not hell Hellboy is an entertaining but unfocused supernatural action movie. Hellboy (David Harbour), a demon agent of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, must fight to prevent the rise of the evil sorceress Nimue (Milla Jovovich). Harbour admirably fills the shoes of Ron Perlmann from the earlier Hellboy films, playing a gruff, short-tempered being with a dry sense of humour, a big heart and deep anxiety about his place in the world. Sasha Lane plays plucky spirt medium Alice, with whom Hellboy has an endearing sibling-like relationship, and Ian McShane is ever charming as Hellboy’s tough-love father Trevor. Hellboy features some solid character development: Hellboy grapples with his apoca-

lyptic destiny, and agent Ben (Daniel Dae Kim) gradually learns to trust Hellboy through their teamwork in adversity. The narrative also contains some clever foreshadowing. But while Hellboy is efficient in some plot areas, it’s lazy in others. Nimue’s machinations feel rushed, the twists about certain characters’ motivations are extremely obvious, and Hellboy’s unease about his monstrous origins is resolved too quickly to carry much weight. The film also relies far too heavily on flashbacks; building characters repeatedly through cutaways to past events ends up distancing us from those characters in the present. The action sequences, while well-choreographed and striking a balance between gory and goofy, are cut too quickly and framed poorly. Hellboy has fun characters, effective foreshadowing and a dark, offbeat vibe marred by rushed pacing and badly-shot action.

First Man Green Book

The first chapter certainly got me in - it’s the story of how the author learned about the subject of this biography: “Australia’s toughest cop”. Normally I consider the childhood of a person to be a poor place to start a biography, because it tends to be low-key and unexciting. However, Vikki’s writing of Brian Murphy’s infancy is brilliant and gripping. It’s a historical-sociological window into a past culture, with people who jump off the page, who pray both for servicemen lost at war and for a criminal hanged for murder. Without ever saying so, Vikki shows the forming of a man’s adult character through a succession of vignettes, some amusing, some somewhat questionable, but all lively. Brian the young policeman follows. He is courageous, incorruptible and, again,

presented through a succession of entertaining interlinked short stories, an approach that works well for the shorter attention spans of today’s readers. The message for me to approve of? That you can be a tough cop, and yet be compassionate, decent and honest. If Brian Murphy could keep to his principles, we can all copy him. - Bob Rich

Miss Vonzolli wins fifth By Jed Lanyon Tim Grace took first place riding Miss Vonzolli in the 2019 Golden Thong at Healesville Race Club on Saturday 13 April. Five year old mare Miss Vonzolli was sent out as the favourite after winning the Mansfield Cup the week prior. This marked Miss Vonzolli's fifth win for the season, taking home the Golden Thong by 0.2 of a length. Healesville Amateur Racing Club secretary Chris Young said the last event of the season was a successful one. "It was a good day. We had record horse numbers as far as entries go. It was the most number of horses we've ever had run in Healesville. The record number of entries allowed for an extra race on the day.

Mr Young said an estimated 1200 people attended the event and was a hit amongst kids. "The crowd was small, but this meeting is always our smallest as we're up against the footy now." The event marked the first time that the Healesville races were broadcast on SkyTV and live streaming websites. "It allowed for off-site betting which was great; it's funny to be able to watch your own races on TV," Mr Young said.

Miss Vonzolli won the Golden Thong at Healesville Race Club. Picture:

100 years for Powelltown By Jed Lanyon Powelltown Football Netball Club is in the midst of celebrating their 100 year milestone as well as the anniversaries of two successful premiership seasons this year. Powelltown FNC held a reunion day for past players on Saturday 13 April, after winning their round one matchup against reigning premiers Yarra Junction. The club will be commemorating 30 years since the 1989 senior football premiership and 10 years since the 2009 A grade netball premiership. Powelltown FNC president Peter Podolinksy congratulated both teams for a hard fought but fair game. "It was fairly close all day, they (Yarra Junction) got a couple goals ahead early in the first quarter, but it was a cracker of a game," he said. "It was a special day for the club in the sense that both teams played really competitive, fair, good country footy. And for us to get up and win was a special time for the club and players." Mr Podolinksy said that there were only three members from the 1989 premiership team who weren't able to make it to the cel-

ebrations on the weekend. Powelltown FNC plans to host a centenary dinner on Saturday 18 May, where they hope to gather over 200 people to celebrate what the small-town club has achieved for the last 100 years. A small group of club members have worked hard to put together a book sharing the history of the club and the community. The book will be available to purchase from the centenary dinner in May onwards. "It's not just about the history of the footy club, but how the club evolved with the town. It interconnects with events that happened in the town," Mr Podolinsky said. Powelltown chose to play Alexandra on the historic round that will mark 100 years for the club. "The reason for choosing to play Alexandra was that both are timber town and both have long associations with the timber industry." Mr Podolinsky said. "We're trying to encourage as many people who have been involved with the club in any capacity to come along." Tickets to the centenary dinner are limited. For more information, contact: pfncnews@ or call: 0467 649 003.

Second-round stunners as first round hits home hard By Matthew Fotia The AFL Outer East Round One hit hard, with plenty of great games and some interesting boil-overs. In the Premier Division, Wandin and Berwick played out an absolute classic with the Dogs winning by 10 points, 22.9.141 to 19.17.131. Daniel Gorringe kicked six goals in his Wandin debut, while small forward Harrison Money kicked another bag of five to bring his season tally to nine. Elsewhere, Cranbourne overran Beaconsfield, Upwey-Tecoma dismissed Healesville and Narre Warren's eight goal to none opening term was enough to get over Olinda Ferny Creek, with Daniel Jackson kicking seven. Division One saw a tight contest between Belgrave and Monbulk, where the Hawks' polish was enough to hold off the Magpies, who controlled most of the play. The goals were shared around, with ruckman Jonathan Hevern kicking two. Mount Evelyn sent a message with a massive win over Warburton Millgrove, while Pakenham defeated Emerald, allowing just two goals for the Bombers. Finally in Division Two, Powelltown upset 24 MAIL

Hubbard breaks his age at golf

Variety bash team hosts charity day By Derek Schlennstedt Terry Daniher, Tony Shaw, David Cloke, John Birt and Stephen Richard were among the names teeing off on Tuesday 9 April at Warburton's Variety Golf Day. The day saw over 70 people play in a game of Ambrose golf - a type of golf where four players work as a team and each player hits off the tee. The best shot is then selected and all other players pick up their ball and place it, within one hand span, alongside the best ball. Each person then hits a second shot from the same spot. Warburton residents and Variety Bash veterans Lachie Pitman and Glenn Harrison organised the day and all funds raised on the day go towards the Variety Children's Charity. "We wanted to do something to raise some

"Because our car is 3799 which is the Warburton postcode, we wanted to do something that was also promoting the town. "It was a good day and lots of local business got involved ... the IGA jumped on broad,

Warburton Butchers provided meat for the barbecue and the golf club helped out. "It all helps the town and of course raises vital funds for the Variety Children's Charity." Both are regulars in the Variety Bash and this year will be travelling from Melbourne to Geraldton. While the weather on the Golfing day was less than favourable teams went about playing all 18 holes, and enjoyed a competitive day on the green. With various items up for auction including signed posters and football jumpers from football stars David Cloke and Terry Daniher, the entire day raised over $5000. "It all goes to variety and it's a really great event and we're hoping to do it again next year, with a couple more football celebrities," said Lachie.

Young bull defeats the old at Shepparton By Karl Hradsky The Healesville Social Golf Club had its annual weekend trip to Shepparton Golf Club with a stop at Mooroopna Golf Club on Friday afternoon for a game of four-person Ambrose. Fifteen members ventured on the trip with one previous members, Peter Lahiff (23) joining the group at Mooroopna for the day. Winners for the day were Lahiff, Travis Carroll, Laurie Tormey and Ken Arnott with a net score of 61 on the course (PAR 73).

On Saturday, 15 members played stableford on the challenging course at Shepparton (PAR 73). Many of the competitors found the steepwalled bunkers challenging. Tom Carroll (14) won the day with a very commendable score of 42 followed by his son Travis Carroll (10) with 35 and Rob Duke (14) with 33. Nearest the pins on the PAR threes were hit by Greg Urquhart, Earl Lowe, Peter Mathieson and Travis Carroll.

Fourteen members played on Sunday. The winner for the day was Travis Carroll (10) scoring 38 points, with Ken Arnott (19) in second with 32 and third, on countback, was Earl Louw (6) also scoring 32. Nearest the pins went to Travis Carroll, Alan Davidson, Laurie Tormey and Peter Mathieson. The overall weekend was won by the steady scoring of Travis Carroll (total 73) with dad Tom Carroll second (total 72).

The Heritage Family

By Ron Hottes Warburton Golf Club's Allan 'Old Man River' Hubbard does keep rolling along. The stalwart is now aged in his mid-seventies and won the Wednesday 10 April stableford - by breaking his age. Next to a hole-in-one, there is no greater achievement in this sport than to break your age. Hubbard had 40 points, shooting a stroke score of 73 to well and truly break his age. The B-Grade voucher went to John Baxter with 38 points. The runner-up on the day was Mr Consistent, Neil Leckenby, also with 38 points. Balls went down to 33. Nearest the pins went to Baxter Senior on the third, Garsy on the 10th and Mr Hibbert on the 15th. In the Saturday 13 April PAR contest, another ageless veteran, Alan Johnston, snared the winner's voucher, with a stunning +6. AJ must have also nearly beaten his age - it's becoming a common occurrence with the two Allans around the club. The runner-up was Peter Fox with a +3. And, the ball rundown extended to -1. Nearest the pin winners were Hatty on the third, Ms Nursey on the fifth, Johnno on the ninth, the V-Man on the 12th and Benny Doggett on the 15th.

Take a second for your life

Stay safe on the roads this Easter.

Timely road safety call Victorians are being asked to take extra care on the roads these Easter school holidays after a tragic start to the year. Already this year 90 people have died on Victoria's roads, including 59 in regional areas. This time last year that figure was 58, and 31 on regional roads. Roads and Road Safety Minister Jaala Pulford joined Transport Accident Commission (TAC) CEO Joe Calafiore to call on Victorians to help put a stop to this tragic period and drive safely during the school holidays and Easter period. "We are deeply concerned about the heartbreaking start to the year on our roads and one of our biggest concerns is the disproportionate number of deaths in regional areas," she said. "We're urging all Victorians to look out for each other on the roads, plan ahead, be pa-

A Split Second decision could be the start of a successful film career for an upcoming filmmaker as the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) launches its short-film competition. The TAC has partnered with the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) for the second year and on 3 April launched the Split Second Film Competition. The competition challenges Victorians aged between 18 and 25 to enter a short film idea with a message about avoiding distractions while driving and has a reminder for filmgoers to turn off their phones. A panel of film and advertising industry professionals will select a winner, who will receive a $5000 prize and work with a professional production company to bring their film to life using a $50,000 budget. "This is a great opportunity for Victoria's budding young creatives to get some real experience in the film industry, while also starting a conversation with their peers about road safety," TAC engagement senior manager Megan Jacobs said. The completed film will be shown before all MIFF screenings throughout the festival and the regional travelling showcase, more than 530 in total.

"This competition will not only reach young Victorians eager to support road safety, but the thousands of people who attend the hundreds of screenings throughout the festival," Ms Jacobs said. Since winning last year's inaugural Split Second Film Competition, Swinburne University film student Callum Borthwick has started an internship with a Melbourne-based creative agency, gaining invaluable experience in the industry. Ms Jacobs said young people were among the most vulnerable road users and it was crucial to engage with them to improve road safety. "In their first year of driving, young drivers in Victoria are almost four times more likely to be involved in a fatal or serious injury crash than more experienced drivers," she said. "That's why it's so important that we continue to find new and innovative ways to engage with them and send crucial road safety messages." Entries for the competition close on 6 May, with the winner announced on 24 May. For more information about the competition and how to enter visit

tient and make safe choices to ensure everyone gets to where they're going safely." Last year Victoria recorded its lowest ever number of road deaths in a calendar year, but this year has already shown that there is no room for complacency. "Most of the deaths on our roads this year have been a result of a simple mistake, and on a high-speed regional road, mistakes often lead to fatal consequences," Mr Calafiore said. "Our message to motorists is to ease up and make safe decisions when they're using the roads - avoid fatigue, avoiding drink and drug driving, avoid distractions and slow down." In an immediate bid to curb the trauma on the state's roads, Victoria Police launched Operation Kinetic - a 10-week TAC-funded operation that will add 300 road policing shifts across Victoria, with a focus on regional areas.

Motorcycle safety boost The State Government is working to keep motorcyclists safer and better equipped with a package of new initiatives, following a devastating start to the year on Victoria's roads. Motorcyclists are over-represented in road trauma. They make up less than four per cent of registered vehicles but riders account for 15 per cent of deaths and serious injuries on the state's roads. "We're only half way through the second month of the year and we've already had 13 motorcyclists lose their lives, which is 13 too many," Roads Minister Jaala Pulford said. A $1 million package funded through the Motorcycle Safety Levy will introduce safety, educational and rider mobility initiatives. A learner and novice rider pack will be developed containing tips and resources to give motorcyclists a safe start on the road. The pack will include high-visibility vests and other safety equipment. VicRoads surveillance officers will be trained and equipped to better identify road imperfections and other potential hazards for motorcyclists. A motorcycle protective clothing star rating system, known as MotoCAP, will be further promoted to help riders make better choices when it comes to buying safety gear. To complete the funding package, a trial allowing motorcyclists to use bus lanes is being expanded to investigate the mobility benefits to riders. The trial underway on Hoddle Street will soon include the Eastern Freeway inbound from the Chandler Highway to Hoddle Street, and Victoria Parade between Hoddle Street and Brunswick Street.

The Motorcycle Safety Levy was introduced in October 2002 to provide specific funding to reduce motorcycle-related road trauma. This package, announced on 21 February, came as the TAC re-launched its Perfect Ride motorcycle safety campaign, urging Victorian riders to take care when using our roads. The campaign addresses five key safety issues that recreational riders encounter and can contribute to a crash - speed, cornering, road position, road surfaces, and foreign objects and other road users.
