The day coincided with Return to School Day, where the school invited parents and grandparents to take part in a morning tea catered by Heartland Church. Acting Principal Gerard Fay said, "The aim of today was for Yarra Glen Primary School to continue to promote itself as a community hub." "This day allowed grandparents and parents to come back into the school to see what the school is doing and the great things that are happening." One parent Vanessa Wood is looking forward to see the students benefit from the new school building. "I like the brightness and airiness that it

brings in to each room. They're not dark and old schoolrooms like they used to be. It's like they're bringing the outside in," she said. "I think the best thing is that the kids are all working together, it doesn't matter what age they are. "I mean they all have their own space for each grade but it's very much about them all learning and educating together," Ms Wood. Another parent Rebecca Holland said that students have been keen to show off the new rooms to their parents. "The kids have been so excited; it's really reinvigorated them to want to be at school," she said. "Having that communal area where they can break out and do things is really making a big difference."



Yarra Glen Primary School celebrated the recent opening of a new school building on Thursday 23 May. Parliamentary Secretary for Schools Tim Richardson and Eildon State MP Cindy McLeish were on hand for a ribbon cutting ceremony to declare the building officially open. The new building boasts several large classrooms that feature smart TV's, large windows that provide great views out onto the school's oval and long sliding doors that allow connecting classrooms to open up more space for a variety of activities. Mr Richardson and Ms McLeish were given a tour of the new facilities before speaking to students at an assembly. "It was wonderful to join the whole Yarra

Glen Primary School community today to officially open its new modular building," Mr Richardson said. "This new building provides the school with four modern and flexible classrooms and ensures the students have the facilities to match the first class education they already receive. "Modular buildings are modern in design and purpose fit for learning. They also have the added benefit of being made off site and delivered to the school which minimises disruption to students learning and development," he said. Ms McLeish said that she was pleased that the new modular buildings were built locally in the Kinglake Ranges. "It was wonderful to join the school community for the opening." "It's important that school buildings no

Storytime all over By Jed Lanyon Chum Creek Primary School was one of the 9890 locations who shared a reading of Alpacas with Maracas as part of National Simultaneous Storytime on Wednesday 22 May. The school invited Natalie Kerst from Big Bouquet alpaca farm in Healesville to read this year's chosen book to their students. At 11am, everyone participating in the National Simultaneous Storytime read Alpacas with Maracas. The Australian Library and Information Association said that over one million people took part in this year's reading across Australia and New Zealand. Ms Hosking said that Chum Creek Primary School had participated in the yearly reading for seven years and that they always aim to get the community involved in the event. "Each year, depending on the theme of the book, we try to ask someone from the Healesville community to read. We've had the CFA, we've had bus drivers and the police," she said. "It depends on what the book is, one year it was about a cow, so we asked a local farmer to come and read and he brought his cow too." Ms Hosking said that inviting people in to read to the school can be an intimidating task and that some years they struggled to find a relevant reader, but this wasn't the case with Ms Kerst from Big Bouquet. "Im one of the tour guides at the Big Bouquet so talking to groups of people is something I do on a daily basis," she said. "I've also got two little kids myself who are pretty tough critics, so this batch of kids was pretty easy." Several senior students travelled to the alpaca farm to learn more about the animal,

Natalie Kerst read Alpacas with Maracas to Chum Creek Primary School students. Picture: JED LANYON while documenting their experience to show other students via video. "A lot of our kids here knew nothing about alpacas and we couldn't all go to the alpaca farm, so we thought this was an easy way to teach them a little bit about alpacas," Ms Hosking said. Chum Creek Primary School doesn't just take part in the reading, but made the entire school day to be alpaca themed.

"The playgroup children made alpaca faces, and then we do Auslan, so we're going to be looking at the story and learning and watching how interpreters do that story in sign language," Ms Hosking said. "And then in other classes they are going to be making some alpaca puppets." National Simultaneous Storytime aims to promote the value of reading and literacy as well as the value and fun of books to schoolchildren.

Students mentored for film projects By Jed Lanyon Ranges Academy of Performing Arts (RAPA) is working with Healesville High School students to create their own film projects to be shown at the Belgrave Cameo for the Lantern and Light International Children's Film Festival on 20-23 June. The film festival is expected to feature 200 students from 25 schools who will put forward short films that will be selected and screened with prestigious awards given to the best film in various categories. Healesville High School's year 10 media students have taken on the project by using an old school building now dubbed the 'Arts Factory', where they have the creative freedom to build any movie set they like for their project. Some students created bedrooms and other home settings, while others went for a darker theme turning the school's photography darkroom into the set of a horror movie. Media teacher and director of curriculum Tanya Ryder-Barnes said, "They have no limitations; they could literally choose any kind of

narrative, any kind of style, which initially was quite challenging because they had to come together and agree with each other." Executive director of RAPA Rainsford Towner has been mentoring the students on their short films throughout the term. "He's sat with them and given them a lot of thoughtful time with their scripting, storyboards and given them some ideas. He also ran a workshop with them showing them how to be on camera," Ms Ryder-Barnes said. Even though Ms Ryder-Barnes had previously worked in the media industry for the BBC in London, she said that it has been important for the students to hear a different voice from the industry and one that they do not hear on a daily basis as a teacher. "One group put green paper around the windows of my car and then we filmed them in it and now we can put moving images on the windows by using the green screen function. "It's improving their editing skills and it has them overcoming certain obstacles because obviously they are too young to drive and nor would I let them drive my car," Ms

Ryder-Barnes said. Mr Towner said he believed it's important to use this film festival to give young people a voice. "The more we look at the political world we're living in. The more important it becomes, in my view that these kids are talking about their future and filmmaking can do that more so than other things. "The students are so engaged, their faces are lit up, they're passionate and their conviction is beautiful," he said. "I know for a fact that they'll never forget this moment in their lives, at this school, when they made a movie. "You know how you remember back to your school days and for most of us it's filled with negative memories, but amongst that you have those positive memories of school life? "This is one of those positive memories of what they achieved in their school environment in their school life," Mr Towner said.

Research shows high risk taking behaviour for rural drivers The Australian Road Safety Foundation (ARSF) is imploring regional Victorian drivers to choose road safety, with admissions of risky road behaviour significantly higher amongst rural road users compared to city drivers. New research has put the spotlight on the dangerous behaviours of regional drivers and the need for further education. Released by the Australian Road Safety Foundation (ARSF) in the lead up to Fatality Free Friday on 31 May, the research reveals that having children in the car is still not a deterrent for the region's drivers taking risks on the road. 45 per cent of regional Victorian parents admitted to breaking road laws or undertaking risky behaviour when their own children are in the car, compared to just 26 per cent of Melbourne drivers. One third of regional Victorian drivers admitted to driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, while one in four admit to speeding on a regular basis. ARSF founder and CEO Russell White urged rural road users to reconsider their behaviour when driving. "While parents are most guilty of bad behaviour with children in the car, the majority of rural drivers seem to believe it is acceptable to take even greater risks if it's just themselves in the car," Mr White said. "The research shows that when we're driving alone, the likelihood of taking a risk increases by roughly 20 per cent, with men more likely than women to take risks on the road. Road users can #ChooseRoadSafety and demonstrate their commitment to reducing the nation's road toll by taking the pledge by visiting

Cash for community Several Yarra Ranges groups are welcoming grants to boost equipment and skills. The Belgrave and Seville junior football clubs, 1st Kallista Scout Group, Sherbrooke Archers, Monbulk Bowling Club and South Belgrave Football Club were among 386 grassroots sports clubs across Victoria to share in more than $530,000. Monbulk MP James Merlino on Thursday 23 May announced the clubs had successfully applied for funding in round two of the State Government's 2018-'19 Sporting Club Grants Program. The grants provide clubs up to $1000 for new uniforms and equipment, up to $2000 to train coaches, officials and volunteers, and up to $5000 to improve operational effectiveness. The Belgrave and Seville juniors will use their grant money for uniforms. The 1st Kallista Scout Group, Monbulk Bowling Club and the Sherbrooke Archers will buy equipment. The South Belgrave Football Club will conduct committee effectiveness training. "The Sporting Club Grants Program is giving grassroots sports clubs in Monbulk the support they need to grow their ranks and help more people than ever play the sports they love," Mr Merlino said.

IN BRIEF ALDI still on its way

Burn-off blunders wasting CFA time CFA has issued a strong warning after "careless" landowners failed to fully extinguish their burn-offs. Private burn-offs left unattended have been keeping CFA crews busy. Acting chief officer Gavin Freeman described the behaviour as reckless. "Despite the end of the Fire Danger Period, landowners still need to exercise a high degree of caution when conducting burn-offs," he said. "The call-outs of the past weekend have been a waste of CFA's time and resources. "Last weekend, CFA crews responded to a ridiculous number burn-offs that were left by careless landowners meaning our crews lost time with their families and their jobs fixing your mistakes.

"Escaped burn-offs or those not conducted properly carry penalties under law." Mr Freeman said it was not difficult to conduct a burn-off safely and legally. "It is important to only burn off when the

conditions are right and to check the weather forecast for the day of the burn and for a few days afterwards," he said. "You should refrain from burning off on days when hot and windy conditions are forecast. "It is essential to ensure there are enough people to monitor, contain and extinguish the burn safely and effectively. "Never leave a burn-off unattended." He said people should call triple-zero immediately if a burn-off got out of control. It is also important to check local council laws before lighting up. Residents must register all burn-offs with ESTA on 1800 668 511. For more information, visit

SES called for early morning fallen tree By Jed Lanyon Healesville SES crews tended to a large tree that had fallen across Myers Creek Road at around 4.40am on Friday 24 May. The early morning job took longer to clean up than the SES had anticipated due to the size of the tree. This incident comes just days after Healesville SES's open day session on Saturday 18 May, highlighting some of the work that SES volunteers undertake. The open day was a hit among locals with over 50 attendees coming along as well as one new member signing up as a volunteer. This marks three new members across their

recruitment drive and they still have room for more. Those who attended the open day were treated to a road crash demonstration, a free sausage sizzle and Patty the Platypus mascot kept the kids entertained. Healesville SES recruitment leader Lucy Aston is looking forward to seeing the new members in action and welcomes those interested in volunteering to sign up via au/volunteer If you would like to get a taste for what life in the SES is like prior to signing up then feel free to attend the weekly Healesville SES meeting every Monday at 7.30pm at 18 Argoon Rd, Healesville.

Construction on the Healesville ALDI store is only weeks away from starting. An ALDI Australia spokeswoman told the Mail that the chain was eager to bring its unique shopping experience to the Maroondah Highway site. "At this stage we are finalising the appointment of our builder and authority approvals so we can commence construction of the store," she said. "We expect to commence construction in June, however do not have an opening date finalised. "We will keep the community updated as the construction of our store progresses." In January, the word from ALDI was that a builder was being appointed and construction was expected to start in February. In August 2017, Yarra Ranges Council faced a double-headed appeal to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) about the store. ALDI appealed against the conditions attached to a permit granted in April, and objectors called for a review of the council's decision. The main sticking point for ALDI was a requirement to reduce the overall building height from 7.42 metres to 7 metres at the front, and from 11.26 metres to 9.6 metres along the Church and River streets frontages. Objectors' concerns included the building's scale and height and lack of an 'active shop front'. The matter was resolved at a mediation meeting, so a full VCAT hearing was not required.

Abuse of older residents World Elder Abuse Awareness Day on 15 June draws much-needed attention to the abuse of older people around the world, including Australia. This abuse is often by someone older people know and trust, and is usually a close family member. The World Health Organisation estimates that as many as one in six older people have experienced abuse. Despite this alarming figure, the lack of awareness and ageist attitudes in our community remain a challenge and present significant barriers to preventing and intervening on this serious issue. The most common forms of abuse to older people are psychological and financial. Psychological abuse may include threats to withdraw access to grandchildren or to place the older person in aged care. Financial abuse can range from misusing


matters Anita Koochew Eastern Community Legal Centre an older person's bank account, to transferring property owned by the older person to another person without the older person's consent, to creating huge debts in the name of the older person and causing them to become homeless. The Federal Government's National Plan to Respond to the Abuse of Older Australians was announced on 19 March this year.


Under the plan, Eastern Health and Eastern Community Legal Centre (ECLC) will implement a Health Justice Partnership, which involves intervening early and skilled lawyers and financial counsellors working alongside healthcare teams to provide a complete and quick response to older people suffering abuse. ECLC will also work with Healesville Indigenous Community Services Association and other agencies and stakeholders to deliver integrated legal and health services to older people in this community. ECLC will continue work on preventing the abuse of older people with the support of the Victorian State Government. This work aims to address the underlying causes of elder abuse, such as age discrimination and negative attitudes and beliefs about older people. The Eastern Elder Abuse Network Recom-

mends older people maintain connections with trusted family, friends and neighbours, and in their local community; consider their future needs and plan for transitions associated with ageing through Powers of Attorney, living arrangements, advance care planning and wills; make informed decisions before making changes to their finances or living arrangements through independent advice; establish a group of trusted people and professionals who they can turn to for support; and ask for help as soon as possible if abuse is taking place. Eastern Community Legal Centre offers free legal assistance relating to the abuse of older people from its office in Healesville and at multiple locations including Ringwood Magistrates' Court (Intervention Order Service) and outreach services to Yarra Junction, Monbulk and Lilydale. Call 9762 6235 to find out how we can assist.

Promises aplenty By Casey Neill Casey MP Tony Smith has plenty of promises to keep following his party’s federal election success. The latest two-candidate preferred results put Liberal Mr Smith 9.38 per cent ahead of Australian Labor Party rival Bill Brindle following the 18 May poll, with almost 80 per cent of votes counted. The Liberal-National Government holds the majority of seats in the House of Representatives. Mr Smith committed more than $6.3 million to his electorate during the election campaign. This was in addition to $300 million to seal 500 kilometres of dirt roads across the Dandenong Ranges and surrounding areas over 10 years, and a $250,000 boost to allow Sport and Life Training (SALT) to expand in the Yarra Valley. Also in the valley, Mr Smith promised $92,174 for CCTV security cameras in Seville, $125,000 to finish the Warburton CCTV project, and $74,721 for cameras in Millgrove. Wandin North Reserve will receive $1 million to help build a new pavilion and a new netball court, and the Seville Recreation Reserve will receive a $900,000 surface upgrade. The Healesville Indoor Swimming Pool will receive $1.5 million for a new roof with solar panels linked to battery storage, a pool filtration system, a pool deck, a reconfigured entrance with automated doors, refurbishment of the plant room and windows. Mr Smith pledged $70,000 to install solar panels and battery storage at the Yarra Glen Memorial Hall, and two grants of $50,000 for solar battery storage at Healesville Memo Hall and the Yarra Centre Yarra Junction. The government will provide $75,000 to complete the remaining three panels of the

Farmers and landowners in the Yarra Ranges are invited to hear expert speakers, learn about how climate change will impact them and how they can adapt to meet the challenges of a changing climate. Presenters include soil scientist Dr Cassandra Schefe, South Gippsland sheep and cattle farmer Jenny O'Sullivan, East Warburton sustainability consultant Corey Watts and cofounder of Permaculture David Holmgren who will speak about how farmers and landowners can adapt their land management to meet the impacts of climate change. The event is being held at The Memo in Healesville, from 7pm on Wednesday 29 May. Yarra Ranges Mayor Tony Stevenson said, "Agriculture in Yarra Ranges is already being affected by climate change. It's important we all explore ways to adapt to and mitigate the risks of a changing climate. "Unfortunately, as the climate warms and dries, and as extreme weather events become more common, our agricultural production will be at increasing risk. "We're proud to be presenting some leading thinkers on agriculture and the environment, who will present on those risks, detail solutions, and answer questions that our local farmers and landholders have," he said. "We hope that everyone coming along will get a better idea of how the coming decades will affect agriculture in the region and how we can all get ahead of climate change." At the end of the event, attendees can ask questions of the experts in a Q and A panel and there will be supper and a networking opportunity from 9.15pm. This event has been organised by Yarra Ranges Council, along with Agribusiness Yarra Valley, Women in Horticulture, Yarra Ranges Landcare Network, Port Philip Catchment Management Authority, Monash University and Farmers for Climate Action. RSVPs are essential. For more information or to book, visit

Stories of Vietnam By Jed Lanyon

Photographer and writer Susan Gordon-Brown and Healesville RSL general manager Gary Slater. which will be supported with memorabilia from our collection. "We want veterans who see Behind the Wire in Healesville to feel that the 40 people who feature are representative of all veterans; that they are not being highlighted, just sharing their story. "Having local memorabilia will help to broaden the experience," Mr Slater said. The RSL will run raffles and have donation tins available during the six week exhibition. Ms Gordon-Brown said she was thrilled when the RSL said they wanted to host Behind the Wire and delighted that it will support a relevant local project. "For so many, the hospital environment is part of the healing environment and there is

something about nature that helps," she said. "And, it's not just the veterans, many will have family members in hospital. "Several of the veterans I spoke to feel that life now is about family and community, and so many are involved in doing things for the veteran community," Ms Gordon-Brown said. "It comes back to community and this fits so well with that notion that they are still serving their country." Behind the Wire will open at Healesville RSL's Gallipoli Lounge on Sunday 19 May at 2pm and run through to Sunday 30 June. Visit for more information on Behind the Wire or www. or phone 5962 5017 for information on the Healesville exhibition.

Pet owners and businesses looking to advertise a dog, cat, puppy or kitten for sale or giveaway in Victoria will soon have to register with the State Government. The Pet Exchange Register (PER) online database will generate a unique source number for anyone advertising a pet for sale or giveaway in the state. From 1 July, it will be illegal to advertise a dog, cat, puppy or kitten for sale or give away without the PER source number and the animal's microchip number. Yarra Ranges Mayor Tony Stevenson said the register aimed to make it easier to trace dogs and cats. This would deter illegal pet sales and help Animal Welfare Victoria and councils to enforce animal management laws. "Animals provide great companionship and brighten up a home, and we're lucky to have organisations like Animal Aid working to find the perfect home for kittens, puppies, cats and dogs," Cr Stevenson said. "When you're adopting a pet, you want to make sure that it's coming from a legitimate source and not supporting illegal pet breeding farms. "Our Community Safety Officers and State Government authorities investigate these whenever they're reported. "Having a centralised register will make that work easier and give residents confidence that the animal they're getting has come from the right place." It will be possible to report illegal advertisements through the PER and check source numbers posted on advertisements. Individuals looking to sell or rehome a dog or cat by word of mouth instead of advertising, such as to a family member, will not have to enrol on the PER. Visit for more information.


An exhibition of portraits of Vietnam Veterans and their stories will add to Healesville RSL's support for a healing garden at Healesville Hospital. Behind the Wire is the culmination of a three-year project by Belgrave photographer and writer Susan Gordon-Brown. Half a century on from the Vietnam war, Ms Gordon-Brown set out to capture the images of the men and women who served and to tell the stories of day to day life outside of the politics and military history of which so much has already been written. Released as a book in 2015, Behind the Wire is touring the country with personal insights into the war-time and post-war experiences of servicemen of all ranks whose jobs included cooks, dental assistants, truck drivers, medics, tank drivers, instrument fitters, forward scouts, riflemen, training team members, civilian nurses and more. Healesville RSL General Manager Gary Slater said the opportunity to stage the exhibition coincided perfectly with their decision to support the healing garden project proposed by Eastern Health Foundation. The foundation aims to raise $90,000 through sponsorship and community support for the garden which will provide an outdoor space designed to promote a healing and relaxing atmosphere for patients, visitors and staff. Mr Slater said the RSL had donated $2,500 towards the project and committed to further fundraising.

Bushfires museum The community can soon have its say on plans for a museum and education centre to commemorate the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires. Eildon MP Cindy McLeish asked the Police and Emergency Services Minister Lisa Neville about plans for the centre in Parliament. "Prior to the 10th anniversary of the 2009 bushfires, the minister put out a press release stating that the government will create a new bushfire museum and education centre," she said. "Three months have elapsed since that announcement without a word from the government despite offering in the press release an extensive community consultation process." In response, Ms McLeish said Ms Neville indicated that consultation would start on 7 June

and run for 10 weeks. Consultation will run through engage.vic. and local councils will support the process. A museum was a recommendation of the Bushfire Anniversary Advisory Group, after the idea emerged from community consultations. The museum will focus on raising awareness of the history, stories and lessons of the 2009 fires as well as other significant bushfires that have impacted Victoria. It will include a reflective space to commemorate the past and educate generations into the future. Ms McLeish said she wanted to ensure all community members wanting to have their say on the development of the museum were able to do so.

Yellow ribbons on trees throughout Marysville marked 10 years since bushfire tore through Picture: ROB CAREW the town. 189781 "I am keen to support our community during this time and welcome any feedback that locals may have about the process," she said.

Rare snakes and lizards stolen from school By Jed Lanyon Thieves targeted Lilydale High School’s reptile room on Saturday 18 May, stealing several rare snakes and lizards. About 2pm they entered a portable classroom through a sliding window and took four golden/green phase common tree snakes and three eastern water dragons. The snakes, some of which were in their infancy, were worth up to $3000 while the lizards could fetch up to $500, according to teacher and reptile room co-ordinator Marcus Whitby. Some of the animals had arrived at the school just a month earlier and there are fears they will be sold illegally. “It does sort of appear that way when other animals that can’t be on-sold weren’t taken,” Mr Whitby said. “They were pretty rare and hard to come by.”

Mr Whitby said there was much anticipation at the school about the arrival of the new creatures and that the baby snakes would require significant care to maintain their wellbeing. “The kids were doing a great job with them because these young animals are hard to get feeding early on," he said. "The kids worked hard and it’s a shame to lose them like this. “Our biggest concern is if the people that took them don’t know what they are dealing with.” Mr Whitby said that while the school had CCTV cameras in place in the area of the reptile room, the thieves managed to go through largely undetected due to blind spots. “We’re really disappointed and very frustrated," he said. "The reptile room has been going for 17 years and this is the first time something like

Note: Image for reference only. this has happened." According to the school, the reptile room has the largest collection of animals in a school in Australia. Anyone with information regarding the theft should call Lilydale Police on 9739 2300 or submit a report through Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Bin ban for e-waste Household e-waste is banned from landfill from 1 July in a bid to encourage reuse. The State Government ban will mean big changes on what can go into household waste bins. Yarra Ranges Council explained that ewaste was any item with a plug, battery or cord that was no longer working or was not wanted. On the list are irons, kettles, hairdryers, computer accessories, tablets, phones, TVs, LEDs and fluorescent lamps, electrical and electronic tools, toys, handheld video games, musical equipment and more. Yarra Ranges Mayor Tony Stevenson said that any object that could take a power source, from a battery to a cord, was classified as ewaste and could be recycled. “Electronics around the home, such as computers or televisions, contain precious, non-renewable metals such as gold and platinum, along with mixed plastics and metal circuitry, which can all take on a new life if recycled,” he said. “For example, your toaster, which has aluminium, copper and nickel chrome alloy, can be reused to make new appliances - copper wiring can be used for anything from home electronics to electric cars.” Cr Stevenson said some appliances could also contain toxic heavy metals, such as lead, mercury and arsenic. “Recycling your appliances means we can prevent those metals from getting into the environment and re-use the materials safely in new products,” he said. “It’s easy to take your e-waste to a better place, by dropping items off for free at your local waste transfer station or putting them out for collection in your annual hard waste collection where they will be separated for recycling.” Visit for e-waste drop-off points.

Ring Terry Miller direct for the the best best prices prices BEST PRICE, BEST TANKS WITH A LIFETIME GUARANTEE It’s time to catch it, order and build your concrete tank NOW!!! Ph. 0260 267 021 Concrete tanks built correctly will last a life time! Terry Miller from Terry Miller Concrete Tanks has been in the concrete tank building business for nearly 30 years. Being from country Victoria himself, Terry realises the importance of good water storage systems. Concrete water tanks built correctly will last a lifetime. They keep your water cool, clean and algae free. This is because our tanks have 5-inch walls and a six-inch base, and are poured with 40-mpa strength concrete not 25 or 30 mpa. We also use plasticiser to keep up the strength in the tanks instead of water. And after 28 days of curing the strength of the concrete will be between 48 and 52 mpa. And each tank is poured individually on site. These tanks come out white, which is a sign of the strength in the tanks. The MPA is a measure of how much concrete there is as parts per 1000. The walls of the tank are vibrated all around to ensure that there are no air bubbles and that the concrete is compacted down. Terry generally builds tanks in three sizes, 50,000, 105,000 and 120,000 either with a silo (metal) roof, concrete top or open top tanks. The tanks will not blow away or fall apart, and this is particularly important in areas where there is high wind, or in fire prone districts. In the event of a fire, a large tank (120,000 litres) can supply water back up to the main house. By setting up a petrol powered generator and pumping water up onto the house directly, via a reverse water sprinkler system, you will keep your home cool and wet. Or if need be, you can jump into the tank to keep cool and be protected from flames and radiant heat. Water is our most important resource, and we cannot have too much of it! So for all your water storage needs when you are thinking of installing your next tank, please call Terry for a quote on 0419462814 or 0260267021 or check out our web site, Nearly three years ago, we suffered our own fire here, in Barnawartha, and we were lucky. But it made me realise how important good water storage is. We are in for a long, hot, dry summer, and fire restrictions are in. Having an ample supply of safely stored water is imperative. So why not contact Terry now about your water supply needs, BEFORE, the heat builds up and water scarce. There is nothing more refreshing than your own cool, clear, clean water!

Hello, Healesville! to share local tales By Jed Lanyon Hello, Healesville! will be a celebration of life of the town of Healesville as locals share the stories of those who have lived around them at The Memo on Saturday 1 June and Sunday 2 June. Award winning playwright Hannie Rayson and theatre director Michael Cathcart moved to Healesville three months ago and began working with Healesville residents to collect and workshop their stories to create a compelling portrait of Healesville. "We have been oversubscribed with very generous Healesville people wanting to tell us their story," Ms Rayson said. "Then we helped people shape their stories into three minute sequences, we had a rule that we didn't want people to bang on forever, you'd just have your moment in the spotlight," she said. "It's amazing what you can tell in three minutes, no one has really been crestfallen by this idea ... it's quite a long time to have three minutes on stage," said Mr Cathcart. Mr Cathcart said that they found that the people have a very deep affection to their town. "The punch line of almost everybody's story is that no matter how hard my life has been that Healesville is my home or Healesville is the place where I found healing," he said. "It's going to be a really polished, joyful celebration of Healesville's heritage, stories and its hopes. "No one can tell the stories of Healesville better than the people of Healesville them-

We've spent hours in the rehearsal rooms with people who have never been on a stage before," Ms Rayson said. The pair revealed that actor Michael Veitch will be making a special appearance for Hello, Healesville! "We've got a few actors to cover for blokes who are either unavailable or who have turned out to be shy," Mr Cathcart said. "There is a gender issue here. Women are happy to speak in the theatre, but some men are troubled by how a theatrical appearance


might compromise their masculinity. Ms Rayson said to lookout for another surprise appearance from Healesville CFA Captain Graeme Bates. "I don't want to give away any secrets, but it's going to be a startling moment in the history of theatre when Graeme steps onto that stage, Mr Cathcart said. "It's going to be exclusive to Healesville. It doesn't matter how much we get badgered by Broadway or The West End, we are not taking it there." To book tickets, visit or call 1300 368 333.

Archibald Prize coming to TarraWarra By Jed Lanyon TarraWarra Museum of Art will be the exclusive Victorian tour venue for the 2019 Archibald Prize, Australia's oldest and most prestigious art award from 14 September to 5 November. Presented by the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the annual portrait exhibition provides a snapshot of Australian culture - from politicians and celebrities to sporting heroes and authors. Since its inception in 1921, the prize has been awarded to some of Australia's most important artists, often inciting controversy while chronicling the changing face of Australian society and evolving definitions of portraiture. Tony Costa won this year's Archibald Prize for his portrait on leading contemporary artist Lindy Lee on Friday 10 May. Amongst the 51 works in this year's exhi-

bition are paintings which portray significant Australian subjects. This year featured renowned actor and producer David Wenham by Tessa MacKay; former ballet dancer and director of Queensland Ballet Li Cunxin by Jun Chen; Anh Do's portrait of the artist George Gittoes; Vincent Namatjira's tribute to his friend and fellow artist Tony Albert; and media commentator Annabel Crabb by Jordan Richardson. Musician Megan Washington is depicted with her child by Loribelle Spirovski; Keith Burt captures author and journalist Benjamin Law; Bidjigal elder and artist Esme Timbery can be seen in a striking portrait by Blak Douglas; and the late Edmund Capon is poignantly portrayed by artist John Beard. Other artists in the Archibald Prize 2019 include former Archibald Prize winners Euan Macleod and Nigel Milsom.

Lindy Lee by Tony Costa.

Jazz and Blues festival line-up is out

Both familiar and unique, Brightburn is a chilling, tightly-paced superhero horror film. Jackson A Dunn delivers a nuanced, confident central performance as Brandon Bryer, an alien boy who is adopted by a farming couple after they found him inside a meteorite. Brandon is initially a kind, quiet boy, but becomes guarded and deceptive as he explores his superhuman abilities. The film succinctly establishes Brandon's extra-terrestrial origin and his nurturing family life, rendering his corruption all the more shocking. As Brandon's angst and sense of detachment from humanity escalate, he unleashes his powers in terrifying ways, leading to several gut-wrenching horror sequences. Tense silence, evocative lighting and clever

staging tighten the suspense to nail-biting levels, and while some of the deaths are extremely graphic, the gore is used sparingly. The narrative suspense emerges from Brandon's dark empowerment and from his loving mother Tori (Elizabeth Banks), who becomes Brandon's only fragile link to decency and refuses to blame him for the mysterious deaths around town. The only major problems in Brightburn are a pointless dream sequence and the background effect of the meteorite upon Brandon. While Brandon's father Kyle's (David Denman) nightmare solidifies his fears about Brandon, it adds nothing to the plot, and the meteorite nudging Brandon toward violence reduces his agency within the narrative. Turning young Superman into a slasher villain, Brightburn is a tense, confronting horror film with solid scares and engrossing character development. - Seth Lukas Hynes Tuesday, 28 May, 2019

Harry’s well on the Money By Nick Creely Another bag of goals to Harry Money, and another four points - things are going swimmingly for Berwick after a 99-point victory against Woori Yallock on Saturday at Edwin Flack Reserve. The champion Wickers side inflicted the Tigers to their first loss of the AFL Outer East Premier Division season, in another impressive four-quarter performance, 20.17 (137) to 6.2 (38). On a day where nasty weather also seemed to be looming large, the destructive Money was the man once again, slotting eight majors to take his tally to 25 from the first five matches. Rhys Nisbet's side were greeted by a competitive Tigers outfit on the wide expanses of Edwin Flack in the first term to hold just a 13-point lead, but stormed ahead with a dominant six-goal second term, with the visitors only able to register a point. With Travis Tuck returning to his damaging best after being a late withdrawal prior to the interleague break, and Madi Andrews stunningly taking his place despite missing the trip to Bendigo to represent the league last weekend with a broken hand, the Wickers just had too much class through the middle, giving Money plenty of chances to weave his magic. Defender Jo West, Matthew Young and Dylan Morris were others to impress for the home side, while for the Tigers, Hayden Smith and former Wicker Michael Riseley played strong games. Elsewhere in the Premier Division, Narre Warren powered away from Wandin to hand the Dogs another disappointing result on the road at Kalora Park, 22.14 (146) to 8.7 (55). After a bright start - which saw the home side hold just a 10-point quarter time lead after a scrappy opening - the Magpies started to find their groove in the second, with forward

Berwick star Harry Money in action on Saturday. 193859 Mitch Cox looking particularly lively as the home side began to move the ball freely off half-back. But there was a bright spark for the Dogs in the second term, with sharpshooter Justin Van Unen - on his way to an incredible seven goals out of eight for his side - kicking an incredible goal out of midair from a marking contest. But it was the third term that Matt Shinners' side flexed their muscles and surged ahead,

Picture: ROB CAREW

with the home side slamming on 10-goals and showcasing their burning speed and elite skills by foot, using the ball superbly through the corridor and getting it into the forward half, where Cox ran amok to bag three for the quarter. Running out 91-point winners, with Brad Scalzo, Cox (six goals), Dylan Quirk and Trent Cody all dominating, the Magpies maintained their edge on top of the table.

In the remaining matches, Cranbourne inflicted Healesville with a heavy 24.19 (163) to 7.4 (46) loss, while Beaconsfield thumped Upwey Tecoma, 19.13 (127) to 7.13 (55). In Division 1, Monbulk now stands as the only undefeated side of the competition, knocking off Pakenham in an early season blockbuster at home, 14.15 (99) to 7.6 (48). The two undefeated sides did battle in a much-anticipated match, but it was the Hawks that were simply merciless from the opening bounce, having 12 scoring shots to two in the first term alone to open up a 30-point quarter time lead. The Lions - as expected from a good side - responded well in the second term, but the home team always had the answers whenever challenged, holding sway to take in a 23-point lead into the main break. From what was a scrap soon became champagne footy from the Hawks, who slammed on seven-goals to three after half time to run out comfortable winners. In an utterly unstoppable display, Shane Williams booted an incredible 10 majors in a best afield performance - an effort that almost single handedly ensured his side could knock the Lions off its perch. In other matches, Emerald also found some much-needed form, belting Warburton Millgrove by just under three-figures, 18.18 (126) to 4.4 (28). Officer made it two in a row, with a strong win against Belgrave, 14.11 (95) to 8.12 (60), while Mount Evelyn knocked off Doveton, 15.13 (103) to 8.14 (62). Gembrook Cockatoo, meanwhile, also picked up a massive win in Division 2, amassing 39 scoring shots on their way to victory against Yea, 18.21 (129) to 8.9 (57). Off the back of former North Melbourne ruckman Hamish McIntosh - who slotted eight in a brilliant performance - the Brookers were never headed after leading all game.

Estcourt wins the day as wet and windy weather fails By John Wood The predicted wet and windy weather for the May competition at the Woods Point Gun Club instead turned out to be a dry, cold, cloudy day with some sunshine that added a little warmth. Visitors from Mansfield, Traralgon, Mornington, Morwell and Warnambool gun clubs made it a busy day. The first squad was underway by 9.30am so that everyone could complete the day before darkness fell. In the Eye Opener, Phillip Desmond won the AA-grade cash with 14/15 and Brendon Jones took A-grade with 15/15. B-grade was successful for Marty McLaughlan with 12/15, while Steve Howlett and Frank Balcombe shared the C-grade moolah with 15/15 each. The tricky background and the dappled light meant that after the Eye Opener there were no more perfect scores returned for the next three events. The signature event of the day was the Jodie Poile Memorial, 30 targets Continental, spon-

sored by her husband Daniel and Daniel's parents, Laurie and Jo Poile. Daniel Chinn, Shawn Wood, Steven Howlett and Mick Ward (27/30) were early leaders until Cranky McCall, Andrew Estcourt and Chris Jones spoilt their party by returning 28/30 each. Then Cameron Trevitt popped to the top of the leader board with 29/30, which was not bettered. Cameron became the proud wearer of the Jodie Poile Memorial sash, taking the AA-grade prize as well. McCall took AA-grade second while Estcourt won A-grade followed by Russell Brill (24/30). Jones took B-grade from Wood while Howlett claimed C-grade from Frank Balcombe on 22/30. Event three was the Howqua Mixed Targets Championship comprising 10 targets double barrel, 10 targets single barrel and 10 targets double barrel points scored three for a break on the first shot, two for a break on the second

shot and zero points for a miss. This event was sponsored by Ken and Ann Skinner. Trevor Ewert and Mick Ward came in with the best scores of 47/50 to go into a shoot off for the overall win and after a bracket of five targets each of double barrel, single barrel and double barrel points, Ewert claimed the Howqua sash and the AA-grade prize with 68/75 from Ward (67/75). Estcourt's 45/50 was enough to win A-grade from Allan Kidd (44/50). Wood earned B-grade (45/50) while Marty McLaughlan had to fend off Kirsten Chinn and Kaylene Estcourt in a shoot off to eventually win B-grade second (82/100). C-grade was a stroll in the woods for Steve Howlett (43/50), with Balcombe second again on 41/50. The final event was the Howqua 15 Pair Double Rise Championship - two targets released simultaneously, only one shot allowed at each target. A bit of a breeze had sprung up so condi-

tions were tricky as shown by the scores. Andrew Estcourt was in the fore again with a good 23/30 to take the sash outright. Trevitt won AA-grade (21/30) from Chinn (34/50) after a shoot off with Ward. Estcourt won the A-grade prize with Russell Brill second (17/30) while Wood had another win in B-grade (19/30) from Kaylene Estcourt (15/30). Howlett and Balcombe again battled it out for the C-grade prizes with Howlett again winning (18/40) from Balcombe in second place (17/40) - a bridesmaid all day. The overall High Gun sponsored by Kirsten and Daniel Chinn was well won by Andrew Estcourt (96/110) with a return to AA-grade handicap thrown in. A busy day, good tucker, keen competition, good company and the constant hum of friends catching up, made the May competition another successful day at the point. The club's next shoot is the Tear Arse Gull Championships on Sunday 23 June, starting at 9.30am.

Yarra Ranges Athletics juniors too strong on the day By Jamie Strudley Another spectacular weekend provided the backdrop to a dominant performance by the Yarra Ranges Athletics Little Athletics Club on Saturday 25 May. The club's littlest junior athletes - under-7, 8, 9 and 10 - combined to completely overwhelm all other competing clubs at the Knox Cross Country Open Day. Supported by a good turnout of senior little athletics club members (under-11 to under-15) and open-age athletes (parents), the club retained the Knox Open Day club trophy for the eighth consecutive year. Next weekend the club will spread far and wide around Victoria. Its normal Saturday morning cross country

will return to Margaret Lewis Reserve with registration and warm up from 8.30am. The club will have six or seven teams competing in the Little Athletics Victoria Cross Country Relay Championships at Cruden Farm, Langwarrin. Seniors will be competing at St Anne's Winery in Myrniong in round two of the XCR19 season on Saturday afternoon. This will be the first individual event of the season which still has team positions and points up for grabs. The club is expecting a good turnout of athletes at this event. Sunday, several club members will compete at the Trarlagon Running Festival with events over many distances including 10km,

The club accepts the team trophy for the day. half and full marathon. The club welcomes all athletes of any age or ability.

Ocean goes to Flinders By Ron Hottes Warburton Golf Club hosted the twice-yearly Ocean Challenge event on Monday 20 May. The visitors won the popular contest between Warburton and Flinders, retaining the trophy they won at Flinders last November. The six four-ball matches fell the way of Flinders, by a margin of 3 and a half to two and a half. The three nearest the pin winners were Noel Cross on the third, Ian Garside on the ninth and Flinders player Paul West on the 12th. Warburton's chosen team will visit Flinders on 25 November for the return bout. Stan Sluzarek won the par event held on Wednesday 22 May with a +4. The runner-up prize went to Steuart-Hawke on +2 after a countback. Balls went down to square. The nearest the pins provided the highlights of the day, though. David Viney holed out with his second shot on the first for an eagle and nearest the pin. Craig Brown snared the nearest the pin on the 15th. But the real highlight of the day's golf was when Andrew McMath won his nearest the pin on the ninth with a hole-in-one - his first ever! Andrew was playing a match against Mick Eldridge and won, to become the club's Cgrade match-play champion. In the Saturday 25 May stableford and P Bartlett final, Sam Dennis won the day with an impressive 40 points. Danny Fox was the runner-up with 37 and achieved the highest score of the Peter Bartlett qualifiers. Balls on the day went down to 33. There were only three nearest the pins won, by Clint Smallman on the third, Neil Leckenby on the ninth and Alan Johnston on the 12th.
