She is now in the process of writing a second book as part of what she anticipates to be an entire series. Kaylee hopes the book can help young chil-

dren who are going through tough times. "The book itself is about finding healing and finding faith in yourself again after a tragic accident."

An idea for a great story is often drawn from personal experience. That's exactly the case for Kaylee Ison, whose latest novel stems from her memories growing up in the Yarra Valley. As a child, Kaylee was a shy girl from Seville East who often struggled to find confidence in herself. But the one place she felt on top of the world was on the back of her horse. "I grew up as a horserider, in the Yarra Valley. I loved horses, lived and breathed them," she said. "I was pretty shy growing up and I had this one pony, he gave me a lot of confidence. "He taught me to ride when I was little." Kaylee - who is now based in Lilydale - always knew her story resembled that of many children across the region who struggle to find self-belief, so she decided to write a story about it. Her children's novel, Ashley's Sparrow, is about a young girl and a horse that both had tragic pasts so they come together to find healing. The main character, Bridie, is a fearless cross-country rider before she suffers a tragic accident and refuses to ride again. It's not until she meets a horse called Sparrow - whose trust has been abused by his past rider - that she faces the decision to get back in the saddle and help Sparrow learn to trust again. Kaylee said her experience growing up with horses and learning so much from them helped inspire the narrative. "Horses taught me a lot growing up and gave me a lot of confidence," she said. "They are an amazing creature, they can teach us a lot about ourselves." The book has been a work in progress for the past five years. It took two years to write and another three to finalise and have published. After initially struggling to go down the typical route of finding a publisher, Kaylee decided to have it self-published. She found an artist who used to live in the Yarra Valley to create the front cover and had former university classmates, family and friends do the proofreading.

Don Valley insult Exciting news to find out that the School for Leadership campus is now going ahead in Don Valley and that the school wants "to be a small but valuable contributor to the community" but which community? Why would any government body name their campus recognizing another township (Yarra Junction) rather than the township where the facility is located? Is this a bad mistake, and are the residents of Don Valley going to be provided with a reason why our beautiful township has been ignored. Let's hope commonsense prevails and this inept decision is rectified prior to the opening of the complex. Rick Houlihan, Don Valley

Same rule for all Following on from Geoff McDonald's letter (Tuesday 30 July) regarding Boinga Bob's being featured on the Nine News. I, too, saw the story and putting aside all

personal feelings/opinions regarding Boinga Bob's structure, I would hope that the Yarra Ranges Council will show the same level of enthusiasm and support for other residents or businesses that are going through compliance issues. There is currently a little cafe whose owner has spent 12 months and $60,000 to make her property compliant and up to the standards. She was given a list of work to be done which she has completed and yet council is still saying no. Going on the support, assistance and attention that Bob is receiving, it would be only fair and reasonable for others (who in many cases, find themselves in this sort of situation through no fault of their own doing) to receive the same treatment. It seems a little unfair that a structure which is now compliant with employees and quite a customer base will be shut down. No double standards...if one has to go, they all have to go. D Mcintosh, East Warburton

On the Mountain Views Mail’s On retired Mountain Views Mail journalist Kath 40th anniversary: I remember when Mardie and Harry started Gannaway: the paper. Such good people. Just love that Colleen was doing her photography thing, too. So blessed to have had all these significant people in my life and the community I grew up in. Role models for life. Liz Prewett, via Facebook What about a commemorative plaque adjacent to the shopfront (228 Maroondah Hwy, where Monroe's Burgers is now) where Mardie and Harry ran the Mountain Views, similar to the plaques that were installed during Healesville's 150th birthday? Robby Jay, via Facebook Hang in there please Mountain Views Mail. The demise of local papers (and loss of jobs in localised investigative journalism for oldschool journos like me) is sad. Digital media distributed via Murdoch tabloids with paywalls is not "local news". Angela Jones, via Facebook

Improvements in road safety needed By Jed Lanyon VicRoads are currently working on design options to improve the safety of the Warburton Highway in Seville East. This comes after a push from a group of residents following several collisions earlier this year, one of which resulted in the death of a 54-year-old Woori Yallock man on 4 April. A spokesperson from VicRoads' Department of Transport said, "We're working on a number of design options to improve safety on Warburton Highway, particularly around the Sunnyside Road intersection. "These options are all focused on making this section of Warburton Highway safer for everybody." Another VicRoads spokesperson said that they expect an update regarding the Warburton Highway in Seville East in the coming months. The 90 kilometre per hour stretch of road does not have designated turning lanes to many side roads and driveways leading to many high-speed rear-end collisions. According to VicRoads, in the five year period between January 2014 and May 2019, there were nine recorded crashes on the Warburton Highway between Peters and Douthie roads, including the aforementioned fatality in April and two other incidents this year that resulted in serious injuries. VicRoads prioritises pedestrian safety projects according to traffic volumes, pedestrian activity levels, nearby land uses, the historical safety record of the site and the effectiveness of proposed treatments in improving

A student crossing the Warburton Highway in Seville East. 193142 pedestrian safety. Members of the Seville East Traffic Safety Group are advocating for the highway to be upgraded to have designated turning lanes at Douthie, Sunnyside and Stuart Roads, as well as an island protected turning lane at Peters Road, as previously reported by the Mail. On 14 May, Yarra Ranges councillors voted unanimously to write to seek urgent action to have intersection treatments, consolidation of access to properties from Warburton Highway,


and a speed limit reduction installed to the area. Council considered that the safety of pedestrians and road users between Douthie Road and Peters Road to be a significant concern. At the meeting, Seville East community member Joel Supple said, "Not only is it unsafe for our drivers, our children are crossing this section of road every day." Currently, pedestrian warning signs are in place on both approaches to the bus stops on this section of Warburton Highway.

School plans to celebrate big milestone By Jed Lanyon Wandin Yallock Primary School is preparing to celebrate the school's 150th anniversary next year. In preparation for the great milestone, the school is reaching out to invite past students, staff and community members who want to help honour the occasion. In a Facebook post, the school said, "We are starting to plan for next year's amazing celebration, but we need lots of helpers and ideas." The school created a 150th celebration committee, who held their first meeting on 25 July. Established in 1870, Wandin Yallock Primary School is one of the oldest schools in the Yarra Valley. For those interested in learning more about the 150 year anniversary or wish to be a part of the events, contact or call 5964 4276.

By Jed Lanyon The Victorian community are being urged to come forward with any information they have about illegal guns in their area, in a new campaign from Crime Stoppers Victoria and Victoria Police. The Illegal Guns Affect Everyone campaign is working with the community to get illegal guns off Victorian streets and out of the hands of people who wish to use them in a criminal act. Assistant Commissioner Tess Walsh wants all Victorians to consider how they would feel if an illegal firearm they knew about was used to harm someone. "This campaign is targeting criminals who have gone at length to obtain a firearm illegally. "If that individual has gone to the effort to obtain a gun illegally, then they have the propensity to use it. "There has been an increase in shootings in Victoria this year, which has tragically led to nine people being killed and over 30 more being seriously injured. The firearms used in these shootings are believed to be illegal firearms. "If a family member or close friend has an illegal gun, we are urging you to call Crime Stoppers and report what you know." Crime Stoppers Executive Officer Stella Smith knows that community support is crucial when seizing illegal guns. "Together with Victoria Police, we are urging Victorians to get behind this campaign and report anything they know about illegal guns in their community. "In the past 12 months, Crime Stoppers Victoria has provided information to help remove 88 guns off Victorian streets. We know with the support of the public, we can increase this number and continue to protect the Victorian community. "We are a completely confidential call centre. We don't need to know who you are, we just need to know what you know. "Any information about guns, where they are being concealed, and how they are being used is the key to seizing these dangerous weapons." To submit an anonymous report to Crime Stoppers, call 1800 333 000 or visit www.

The hotels of Yarra Glen For some 20 years, from 1888 until 1919, Yarra Glen supported three hotels. The discovery of gold at Steels Creek and Woods Point in the early 1860s brought a lot of traffic along the Yarra Track. Thomas Muncaster Bell recognised the commercial opportunity and opened a general store and the Yarra Flats Hotel in 1864. These, together with a post office which was set up in 1861, formed a nucleus for a village which developed near the junction of what is now Melba Highway, Symons Street and Irvine Crescent. While Bell retained ownership of the hotel buildings, the liquor license was transferred to Antonio Quadri in 1866 and to Anne and Thomas Batt in 1871. The Yarra Flats Hotel became the meeting place of the newly-formed Yarra Flats Hunting Club. A spacious ballroom was added to the hotel and it was the scene of many Hunt Club Balls and other district entertainments. William Farrell held the license from 1881 until December 1888, at which time he moved to the newly-erected Grand Hotel. In June 1894, John Irvine inserted an advertisement in the Lilydale Express stating that he had leased the hotel and ‘nothing but the very best brands of wine and spirits and ales and porter will be kept in stock’. Jack Irvine’s son Tom held the license brief-

Yarra Glen and District Historical Society secretary ly in 1908. Robert (Bert) Lithgow was the adopted son of Thomas Muncaster Bell and Lithgow inherited the hotel after the death of Thomas Bell in 1902. He took over the license in 1909. In 1935 Lithgow purchased the Grand Hotel and the Yarra Flats Hotel was de-licensed. The building then became a private residence until it was demolished in the late 1990s to make way for Melba Lodge. The second hotel was the Junction Hotel, built in the early 1870s at the junction of the Yarra Track and the road to Steels Creek. Edward Cullis was granted a license on 11 September 1872. Thomas Trott was licensee in 1880 and Alfred Lowman from 1882 to at least 1885. At this time the hotel contained eight rooms. Sam Smith held the license from December

ed as saying that in “1888, the present year, I bought the hotel property known as Burgoyne, and have added a large number of other rooms to keep pace with the requirements of the ever-increasing business”. The completed two-storey building was officially opened in September 1889. It had a large kitchen, 24 bedrooms, eight sitting rooms, a dining room and a billiard room. There was a public bar and a private bar. The 90-foot tower provided views of the surrounding countryside. The total cost, including the land which comprised 20 acres, was £10,000. The renewal of the license for the Burgoyne Hotel was granted to Henry Farrell in December 1888. He held it until 1890 when it was transferred to William Farrell. The new railway station was named Yarra Glen and this was also soon adopted as the name of the adjacent township which grew at the southern end of Bell Street. In December 1905 Rachel Dawson took over the Burgoyne Hotel and when she applied for the victualler’s license, she also received permission to change the name to the Grand Hotel. Bert Lithgow bought the Grand Hotel in 1935 for £3050 and from that day until the present it remains the only hotel in the parish of Burgoyne.

1888 until his death in 1905. The license remained with the Smith family until 1919 when the Licensing Court determined that two hotels were now ‘ample’ for Yarra Glen. William Newman, one of the early stagecoach drivers, reminisced in later years: “One must not forget Mr Sam Smith, the jolly old proprietor of the Junction Hotel...‘Burying Sam Smith’ was the popular excuse made by some of the old-timers to their wives if they dwelt too long at this old inn.” (The Age, 5 January 1935) The 1880s saw another significant economic development when the railway was built across the Yarra Flats. William and Henry Farrell saw the potential tourist trade and the value of being near the new railway station. In 1887 Henry erected a modest building on the site of the current Yarra Valley Grand Hotel ‘containing six rooms, exclusive of those required for the use of my family and servants’. He successfully applied for the license of the recently-closed Christmas Hills Hotel to be transferred to his establishment, which he called the Burgoyne Hotel. In December 1888 William Briggs took over William Farrell’s license for the Yarra Flats Hotel, and William Farrell bought into his brother’s business at the Burgoyne.

Sanctuary for all By Jed Lanyon Healesville Sanctuary is now fully accessible to all visitors with the opening of the latest Victorian Changing Places facility on Tuesday 30 July. The Changing Places project by the Department of Health and Human Services is responsible for providing larger than standard accessible toilets that have extra features such as a tracking hoist and more space to meet the needs of people with a disability. Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Victoria Danielle Green opened the new changeroom and toilet facility. "The Changing Places facility at the wonderful Healesville Sanctuary is another great example of the Labor Government creating inclusive communities, especially in regional Victoria. "Having a disability shouldn't preclude anyone from participating in their community and enjoying exciting attractions like the Healesville Sanctuary." According to the state government, $2.6 million will be provided to fund a network of 26 Changing Places across Victoria with Zoos Victoria receiving $100,000 for the Healesville Sanctuary facility. Victoria was the first Australian state to launch Changing Places and continues to lead the way nationally in making public spaces more accessible. There are now over 100 Changing Places across Australia, including five locations in the Shire of Yarra Ranges. These locations include Lillydale Lake, Monbulk Aquatic Centre, the Yarra Centre, Yarra Glen and now Healesville Sanctuary. Changing Places will enable the 346,400 Victorians with high support needs to visit popular tourist locations, parks and community facilities across the state.

The opening of the Changing Places facility at Healesville Sanctuary. 196220 Changing Places is a key priority of the Absolutely Everyone State Disability Plan for 2017-2020, which will see the state government support a range of actions in partnership with the community to achieve greater inclusion. The facilities are different to standard accessible toilets as they have extra features and more space to meet the needs of people with severe and profound disabilities.

Is a loved one of yours not coping at home?

Changing Places facilities provide a height adjustable adult-sized changing bench, a ceiling hoist to help lift the person out of their wheelchair and onto a change table or toilet, as well as a spacious, safe and clean environment for a carer and person with a disability.

Applications are now open for the Aunty Dot Peters Award. The award supports Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students to complete years nine and ten at a Victorian Secondary School. Each year four students receive bursaries of $5000 each ($2500 per year over 2 years). Eligible recipients must identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, have completed year eight at a Victorian school in 2019 and plan to complete years nine and ten at a Victorian Secondary School next year. Indigenous Elder Aunty Dot Peters said, "It has been a longstanding dream of mine to get this award up and running. "As a former educator, I am proud to see an initiative like this that young Aboriginal people can strive for. "I want all Aboriginal people to be true to themselves and to remember it's important for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people to come together." The award serves to honour the work of Aunty Dorothy (Dot) Peters, much-loved community member, educator and Chairperson of the Victorian Aboriginal Remembrance Committee. Aunty Dot was recently recognised as a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) as part of the Queen's Birthday 2019 honours for her significant service to the Indigenous community of Victoria. From 1980 to 1991 Aunty Dot worked as an Aboriginal Educator at Healesville Primary School, educating students about Indigenous culture and showing them how to weave baskets. In a previous story for the Mail, Aunty Dot said she is proud of her work to create an Indigenous remembrance service, an event that started at Healesville RSL where a didgeridoo was played alongside the ode as a way of honouring her father, who had died as a prisoner of war on the Thai Burma Railway.

Teacher’s lesson By Jed Lanyon Marlene Williams celebrated 30 years of teaching at Healesville Primary School on Thursday 1 August. Healesville Primary School staff gathered in their staffroom for a surprise morning tea for Ms Williams to honour the occasion. While Ms Williams said she knew that she was coming up on 30 years of service at the school, she never anticipated to receive such warm recognition for her achievement. "I'm very surprised and overwhelmed. I'm touched by the thoughtfulness ... It's humbling and very touching." Ms Williams said some of her best memories of her time at the school being the lifelong friendships she has formed with staff and students. "It has been a very personal relationship and a very personal connection with the school." Ms Williams said she still had a strong connection to her past students and their families, having been invited to some of their 18th and 21st birthday parties long after teaching them in primary school. Ms Williams shared how Healesville Primary School had changed over the course of 30 years. "We had lots of portables and an old wooden building when I first started. "I remember the prep playground with the huge oak trees. That was just magnificent. And of course the big blue slide. "There have been lots of changes ... There's not one building or playground that is the same since I first started here." Ms Williams is now teaching the children of some of her earlier students in her career. Prior to her time at Healesville Primary School, Ms Williams taught at Scoresby Primary School and Boronia Primary School.



When asked what she enjoys the most out of teaching, she said, "The kids, the interaction with the kids. I love seeing them grow and learn and to get enthusiastic about their education and their own life. While only having started at the school last

know if people necessarily stay in the same occupation for 30 years let alone the same place. "I think it shows her passion and love for Healesville Primary in the fact that she's still here after all this time. "She's an absolute asset to the staff, the

teachers love her, and the students love her. "She knows everything about her kids, she knows the families and she really brings that community aspect into the school."

800 trees planted for environment By Jed Lanyon Healesville Environmental Watch Inc. (HEWI) and community members took part in National Tree Day on Sunday 28 July. National Tree Day is an initiative by Planet Ark as a call to action for all Australians to put their hands in the earth and give back to their community. Each year about 300,000 people volunteer their time to engage in environmental activities that aim to educate individuals about the world around them. HEWI project facilitator Karen Garth said that 21 volunteers planted over 800 native plants along the Grace Burn. "There's a further 200 to be planted there by high school students in the next few weeks, making our tally 1000 plants. Ms Garth said that Yarra Ranges Council supplied the plants for HEWI's third planting event at the site. According to Planet Ark, a 5 per cent increase in tree cover can reduce nearby daytime temperatures by 2.3C, which could be crucial as heatwaves cost more lives than all other climate change impacts combined. Planet Ark Deputy CEO Rebecca Gilling said, "It's heartening to hear that Australians think that individual action can make a positive impact on our environment.

Project firefighters

Housing ends homelessness. That was the topic discussed at the launch of the Yarra Ranges Homelessness week on Monday 5 August. Holy Fools and Anchor organised the event at Melba Park in Lilydale, two agencies which support homeless and at-risk people in the Yarra Ranges. Speaking at the event, Holy Fools CEO Neal Taylor said that this event had been their biggest in recent history and aimed to raise awareness of homelessness. “This is the culmination of many hours, but the idea has always come from homelessness Australia and this year’s theme is housing ends homelessness - we would amend that with saying affordable housing ends homelessness,” he said. “The idea this year is we are here in the park and we want to do a number of activities to promote and really get that message home. “Each night we’re going to have fireside chats and each one will have a different theme and speaker. "On Wednesday, we’re going to be doing something we’ve never done before, which is running a memorial service for those who have passed in this area from homelessness.” The launch coincided with Yarra Ranges Councillor Tim Heenan’s 11th year sleeping in a cardboard box. He started the challenge in 2008 and although he's now aged 60, Cr Heenan said he would continue to participate for as long as necessary. “I want to stop when we have a drop-in centre or Lilydale lounge when it’s built,” he said. “I hope I can keep going on the commitment, but it’s getting harder. "When I started this it was 11 years ago and I’m nearly 61.

Recruitment is now underway for new Project Firefighters (PFF) to conduct important bushfire prevention work in the Port Phillip region. Port Phillip Assistant Chief Fire Officer, Kylie Hyland said: “We are looking for women and men to join Forest Fire Management Victoria over the summer season to assist with the prevention and suppression of bushfires in Port Phillip’s parks and forests.” “There are number of positions available in the Port Phillip region for general firefighters and fire support officers, with a number of positions that have been identified for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. “Project Firefighters are on the frontline fighting bushfires, conducting planned burns and undertaking roadside vegetation and fire trail maintenance. “No two days are the same, and this is a great opportunity to learn new skills and be part of a diverse and inclusive team that helps protect the Port Phillip region’s community. “Successful recruits receive comprehensive training and get the opportunity to work with experienced personnel. “Our firefighters are men and women from all walks of life and backgrounds, and many past PFFs have gone on to rewarding careers in permanent roles within the department. “Project Firefighters are based at more than 80 locations throughout the state with 300 positions available in total, adding to the existing workforce of 300 firefighters currently on three-year contracts. “Once recruitment is complete we will have over 1000 frontline forest firefighters trained up and ready for this coming season, with 600 PFFs and 340 permanent Forest Fire Operations Officers." Applications for project firefighters close on Sunday 25 August. Visit au/pff or call 136 186.

Helping homeless

Councillor Tim Heenan and Holy Fools CEO, Neal Taylor at the Yarra Ranges Homelessness Week launch. “I can go home to my bed at the end of 10 days. "Some people have to deal with 365 nights and not only find shelter, but have to feel safe.” Speaking at the launch, Anchor representative Mark Lamont addressed the issue of affordable housing in the outer east, and said the trend of older women becoming homeless was expected to continue unless social housing provision was expanded. “We have seen an increase in families and mums with dependent children coming through and wanting assistance,” he said. “The eastern region has the highest rate of domestic and family violence in the state. "The average state figure is around 35 per cent. From what we are seeing it's 48 per cent in the eastern region. “This trend will continue unless they are

addressed.” As part of National Homelessness Week (4 to 10 August), Holy Fools will hold a variety of events at 33 Market Street, Lilydale. Every evening from 7pm there is a fireside chat with a guest speaker. Although Mr Taylor conceded there was still a lot of work needed to improve the state of homelessness in the Yarra Ranges, he said there had been a lot of positive change. “Holy Fools is 10 years old in October and over the last 10 years we’ve seen enormous change in the Yarra Ranges - in particular in homelessness and housing,” he said. “Ten years ago we would never had this many people sitting here wanting to hear about homelessness...never had the council acknowledging what was going we’ve come a long way.”

Sharing is also caring

Yarra Glen resident Amber Wilkinson has been selected as a finalist for the 2019 AusMumpreneur Awards in the fashion business category. Mrs Wilkinson is the heart and mind behind the fast-growing, socially-conscious clothing label, Kind is Cool. The AusMumpreneur awards celebrate and recognise Australian mums in business achieving outstanding success in areas such as business excellence, product development, customer service and digital innovation. The awards are designed to highlight the growing number of women who successfully balance motherhood and business in a way that suits their life and family. Mrs Wilkinson has turned her desire to see more kindness in the world into a global brand that is not only seen on celebrities but is also creating conversation in schools and organisations. Having recently partnered with Bully Zero, Mrs Wilkinson is on a mission for make the world a kinder place for all humans as $2 from every Kind Is Cool product sold goes to the anti-bullying organisation. "Being selected as a finalist means so much to me ... I am trying to make a difference in the world, to make the world a kinder place, to be rewarded in this way is just an honour," Ms Wilkinson said. Ms Wilkinson partnered with Steph Luck to launch the online campaign National Be Kind Day on 2 March using the hashtag #standuptothebullies. "We wanted to be uplifting and to change the way the internet is used ... ignoring bullying means it has no consequences," she said. Using Instagram, the pair contacted several celebrities and agents in the hope of using their star power to further promote the message.

Community groups helping vulnerable community members to access food are calling for support. Outer East Foodshare provides donated food to agencies across the Yarra Ranges and needs volunteers and donations. "We're keen to work with our volunteers to find what works for them and their time," secretary Marilyn Lambert said. "Some people pick up the van, drive to Food Bank Victoria and drive back. "You'd need to be able to lift boxes and have a driver's licence for that, but if you didn't have a licence you could be an off-sider to help with loading the van, or you could be ringing growers, talking to our local food retailers, finding out what's feasible in terms of donations of excess food. "We have a person who is growing silverbeet for us, because she can and it's nutritious and healthy. "That's not a really big time commitment, but it all helps." Outer East Foodshare distributes food through partner agencies including Discovery Community Care in Lilydale, the Redwood Centre in Warburton and Healesville Interchurch Community Care (HICCI). Yarra Ranges Council supports Outer East Foodshare through multi-year partnership grant funding. Shereen Barker from Discovery Community Care said there wasn't much awareness of food relief organisations in the wider community, which made it difficult to receive donations. "The people who use our organisations know about the network and they'll suggest places to their friends, but there isn't a huge community awareness of what we do," she said. "If you have excess food, I would say there are a lot of agencies in Yarra Ranges that would appreciate a call."

Kindness coolest

Amber Wilkinson with Chet and Nash. And the response was overwhelming with Jimmy Barnes, Bec Judd, Kate Cebrano, John Farnham and Jason Mraz all getting involved by donning the 'Be Kind' shirt or donating to charity. Over $2000 was raised from the first National Be Kind Day to go towards charities that educate and support the prevention of bullying. "There are so many ups and downs but it is

all so rewarding," Mrs Wilkinson said. The winners of the 2019 AusMumpreneur Awards will be announced in Melbourne on Friday 6 September. For more information about the awards, visit: For more information about Kind is Cool, visit:

True Confessions By Jed Lanyon After touring Australia-wide, Jeff Jenkins will be bringing True Confessions Revisited back to where it all began in Healesville on Saturday 7 September. The Healesville resident invites locals to come celebrate the last True Confessions Revisited show where he plays Bob Dylan and Tom Petty. "It's going to be huge. We're going full circle ... Our first big show was here at the Memo, we were received really well and people loved it." The show is based on the legendary 1986 True Confessions show at Kooyong of Bob Dylan featuring Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and a surprise special guest in Stevie Nicks. "What you're going to get is the music of three of the best artists the world has ever seen, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks. "The story goes that Bob had this Australia tour booked, but he hadn't organised a backing band. "The promoter rings Tom Petty and Tom says 'There's only one person that we would open for and to be the support band ... and that's Bob Dylan'. "And at this point, Tom Petty was going out with Stevie Nicks. So she comes along just to hang out but of course she ends up on stage." Mr Jenkins recalls how he came to play both music icons in the one show, following the success of his previous show The Bob Dylan Story. "It was time to start thinking about what's next ... We started auditioning some people to be Tom Petty and a lot of people couldn't sing that high or they had other commitments. "And we were rehearsing the Tom Petty songs and I was singing them ... And I kind of just went 'you know what? I could do this. I can be Tom in the first half and Bob in the second half. "I know it's a bit crazy and all that, but I'm egotistical enough to try and think that I can get away with that. Mr Jenkins said he is trying to get his old band Dukes of Despair back together for the first time in five years to create original music and appear at the Healesville Music Festival.

Mr Smithies said that he had never anticipated winning the award when he started writing. "It's like a reward for all the hard work. A lot for research went into this particular book," he said. Rama's Bridge follows Michael Fontana, the heir-apparent to the Sicilian mob who learns of an age-old secret of Rama's Bridge and an ancient relic in Sri Lanka. "It encompasses not only the excitement of a treasure hunt, but the strategy employed to keep one step ahead of the enemy. "After my first book I thought, what am I going to write about this time? And I thought I've got to stick with crime, fiction and suspense. "It's for people who like a bit of excitement in a book. "I saw writing as a challenge ... I think it takes courage. For quite a few years I didn't have the courage or belief within myself and even when my previous book was accepted by a publisher, I think I nearly fell out of my chair. "I think this book is written much better ... Like a lot of things in life, you improve as you go along." Mr Smithies is a qualified sports therapist and has a strong interest in sports medicine.

Ophelia is a sumptuous, powerful retelling of Hamlet from the perspective of Hamlet's love interest Ophelia (Daisy Ridley). Ridley has an elegant, commanding presence as Ophelia, who is a smart, headstrong woman from humble beginnings. The film has stunning art direction and costumes, the Elizabethan-style dialogue is very authentic, and the rousing score by Steven Price combines medieval instruments with more modern beats and mixing. Ophelia infuses Shakespeare's tragedy with intriguing new interpretations and context. The film shows the roguish yet unsettling Claudius (Clive Owen) courting Queen Gertrude (Naomi Watts) through acts of bravado and appealing to her vanity. The film thoroughly depicts Ophelia and

Hamlet's (George MacKay) relationship, as they impress each other with their wit and independence and become devoted secret lovers. While some sections of the narrative feel rushed, the suspense tightens as Ophelia faces persecution from multiple fronts, including her being scapegoated for Hamlet's apparent madness. The 'get thee to a nunnery' scene becomes a tense game of keeping up appearances, as Ophelia and Hamlet covertly discuss Claudius's treachery, while Ophelia's insane dance becomes a brilliant act of mockery akin to Hamlet's 'the guts of a beggar' speech. The plot empowers Ophelia, but it's disappointing that her daring final plan is not her own idea, but rather inspired by Mechtild, a healer wronged by Claudius and the film's awkwardly-inserted new character. Ophelia is a beautiful, entrancing take on Hamlet from a much-needed new angle. - Seth Lukas Hynes Trades & Services

Athletes performing well Fifteen Yarra Ranges Athletics athletes travelled to Lake Dewar in Myrniong, near Ballarat, for the Little Athletics Victoria State Cross Country Championships. Outstanding performances from all of the club's athletes capped off its season superbly.

Final results are - Bradley Walker 42nd 2km 8:40, Scarlett Wilson 16th 2km 8:34, Mitch Pointon 18th 1.5km 5:28, Zoe Clarke GOLD 1.5km 5:14, Willow Naismith 5th 1.5km 5:52, Emily Fiedler 18th 1.5km 6:20, Tori Kincaid

25th 1.5km 6:31, Caitlyn Pointon 44th 1.5km 7:19, Finn Rossthorn 30th 1.5km 5:56, Tait Whelan 48th 1.5km 6:26, Mia Strudley SILVER 3km 10:36, Jemima Wilson 4th 3km 11:21, Indigo Linde 6th 3km 11:26, Ky Harris 18th 3km 11:30, Bailey van Bert 22nd 3km 11:35.

Winter warm-up for dirt track fans By Dean Thompson Alexandra Speedway will warm up dirt track fans with the annual three-hour enduro for speedway sedans this Saturday 10 August. There's $2000 to win, plus racing from some hard-charging junior sedan racers. Last season's lap record-breaking brothers Damien and Brendan Miller will be back to defend in a field full of super combinations. Leigh Bourke and Zac Swanson bring modified sedan experience, with Bourke the 15-lap record holder for sports sedans this past season at Alexandra. Jake Drewett teams with Warrick Howie, who won a state championship at Alexandra a few seasons ago. Shane O'Brien teams with his brother-inlaw and reigning 100-lap Derby King Lennie Bonnici in sedan and chassis car combination and runner-up in the recent Derby Warrick

Taylor teams with Peter Cox in an all chassis car team. The 2012 enduro winners Matt Nelson and Darren Nelson team together again, also in a sedan/chassis combo. Local Alexandra hero Luke Fallon, a winner in 2017, teams with Healesville gun Steve Kershaw, both very consistent top-five finishers. Andrew Jordan and Lenny Bates have won the event before, too, and they are back to have another crack. Bates is a driver who can make a deep run into the race before needing to switch with his teammate. Another potential strong combination is Tony Moule and Frank Ramsdale, if Ramsdale can get over some wretched luck in these enduro events. He has a car that has won enduros previously and Moule built his car which won the

Derby five seasons ago. Race-goers can expect more than 200 laps to be completed with 282 laps the record set last season by the Millers. In junior SSA sedan racing, the young ladies lead the charge with Kasey Garlick, Chloe Sheerman and Bree Simpson among the favourites to win. Garlick finished second in June in the Victorian Short Circuit Championship event. The boys, including Jayden Bryant, Luke Cornfoot, Dylan Barrow and Linken Paterson, are hoping to spoil Garlick's final junior sedan race before she graduates to the adult scene. Racing starts from 2pm. Tickets are $50 for a family of two adults and three children aged 10 to 16, $20 per adult, and $10 for pensioners and for children aged 10 to 16 years. Children aged under 10 years enter free. Call 0438 700 124 for more information.

Steady won the race in a little drizzle By Karl Hradsky Drizzly conditions put a lot of players off the latest Healesville Social Golf Club (HSGC) competition, but a few hardy souls weathered on. Travis Carroll (10) maintained a steady game, taking first place with 35 stableford points. Ken Arnott (19) performed well with 34 points followed by Tom Carroll (14) with 32 points. Travis Carroll, Wayne Fenner and Tom Carroll hit the nearest the pin shots, with Tom picking up two. Chris Handasyde and Earl Louw defeated Jonny Heywood and Rob Plozza (away injured) to go into the next round of the Doubles Matchplay Championship. In RACV Healesville Country Club Golf results, Wayne Fenner won the Tuesday mixed

stableford contest on countback with 37 points. In second place, also following a countback, was Rennie Mathieson (16) with 37 points and Darren Wood (11) took third place with 37 points. Brian Hay, Howard Vaughan, Wayne Fenner and Barry Mock won the nearest the pins. In the Wednesday ladies foursome, Anne Whitmore and Davia Jorgensen took first place with Hilda Gurney and Barb Brandenberger in second. Nearest the pin glory went to Anne Whitmore and Bidelia Nolan. Kenneth Emslie (18) claimed first place in Thursday's mixed stableford with 36 points. Second went to Allan Davidson (14) with 35 points on countback, and third to Leo Palazzo (21) with 35 points.

Malcolm Moore, Laurie Tormey, Brian Caldicott and Tony Druitt won the nearest the pins. In the Saturday mixed stroke (nett) monthly medal, Grant Handasyde (15) won first place with 64, Allan Davidson (14) second place with 65 and Mark Goessling (16) third with 68. Nearest to the pin went to Rodney Clark, Glenn Newbery, Simon Caldicott, Adam Kilgour, Dale Phillips, John Stewart and Adam Kilgour. Jonathon Heywood had the longest drive. Ned Puddy (17) won the Sunday mixed stableford on a countback with 35 points. Travis Carroll (10) was in second place with 35 points and Ken Arnott (19) third with 34 points. Nearest to the pins went to Trevor Barr, Karl Hradsky, Ned Puddy and Travis Carroll.

A fitting end to a classic By Nick Creely It took a moment of sheer brilliance to separate two sides that refused to let the foot off the throat all day. Narre Warren and Wandin could barely be split in an engrossing AFL Outer East Premier Division blockbuster at the Kennel on Saturday, with a magic goal from Peter Gentile in the dying seconds sealing the four points for the Magpies, 18.21 (129) to 19.8 (122). Gentile used all of his class to kicking a goal in mid-air from the goal square over his head with only seconds to play, ending a battle which had so many twists and turns of momentum. The Magpies got the hot start away from home to silence the vocal home crowd, with two beautiful running goals from Trent Cody within a few minutes of each other getting the visitors off to the perfect start. Maximising on their elite pressure through the midfield, and with the likes of Trent Cody, Brad Scalzo, Dylan Quirk and Nathan Foote controlling possession and getting the ball moving, the Magpies looked ominous when the ball went forward, with Daniel Jackson marking everything and kicking the ball beautifully. But Dogs skipper Justin Van Unen showcased some brilliance of his own to stem the bleeding nearing quarter time with a lovely checkside goal, before Clinton Johnston slotted a goal after the quarter time siren to draw the margin back to just 23. The Dogs started the second well, with Rohan Heasley capitalising on some excellent forward pressure, before the Magpies once again steadied to regain control. Van Unen, however, kicked a pearler from the pocket after the half-time siren to give the Dogs plenty of momentum heading into the final siren, and with confidence they could overrun the Magpies on their home fortress. And signs were looking worrying for Matt Shinners’ side, with the Dogs going absolutely

Emerald marquee man Stephen Milne celebrates a goal for the Bombers. 196222 Picture: ROB CAREW bersek in the third quarter, kicking 10 goals to three and opening up a three goal lead with some of the most electric footy of the year, with Van Unen continuing to create serious headaches on his way to seven majors. The Magpies clawed its way back, re-discovering some of its spark from the first half, with veteran Col McNamara’s set-shot putting them back in front midway through the final term, before a Patrick Hodgett soccer only seconds later saw the Dogs reclaim the lead. With no indication of which way the con-

test was going to go, the little contests - whether it be the stoppages, or the ability to just stick marks and tackles - become vital, and young gun Tom Miller came to the fore for the visitors, showcasing great composure as his side once again took the lead. But Hodgett had other ideas, sneaking another through the big sticks to create a threepoint lead, and when Michael Collins couldn’t quite convert his set-shot only seconds later, it appeared as if the Dogs - with the home crowd in toe - would hold on as the clock shot past 30 minutes.

The Heritage Family

It wasn’t until Gentile’s piece of magic that sealed the result, with the siren going shortly after the crafty forward’s freakish match winner, in one of the most entertaining games of local footy in recent memory. For the Magpies, veteran Michael Collins was absolutely sublime once more, while fellow great Col McNamara and Dan Jackson (six goals) had moments that will be talked about in the lead up to the finals. While for the Dogs, Van Unen’s seven goals were remarkable, Tom Hinds was excellent, while Hodgett’s last quarter almost got the home side over the line. In the remaining matches across the round, Cranbourne did what they needed to for their finals chances at home against Healesville, 17.17 (120) to 4.8 (32), Beaconsfield found a bit of spark with a comfortable win against Upwey Tecoma, 17.22 (124) to 3.5 (23), while Berwick banked a vital win on the road against Woori Yallock, 15.13 (103) to 5.9 (39). In Division 1, the presence of former St Kilda great Stephen Milne was enough for Emerald to upset Doveton at home in front of a monster crowd, 12.11 (83) to 10.11 (71). Despite the Doves never really going away, the Bombers always looked like the better side on the day, with Milne slotting two and getting the crowd up and about. The Doves came back hard - particularly in the final half - but couldn’t quite find enough momentum to force its way over the line. And in the remaining match in what was a split round, Mount Evelyn stormed home from a six-goal deficit at home against Officer to win comfortably at home, 14.12 (96) to 12.13 (85). In Division 2, Seville got the better of Gembrook Cockatoo, but the margin could have been bigger if not for inaccuracy, 13.21 (99) to 7.9 (51). The Brookers couldn’t reel the margin in after conceding seven second term goals, but battled the game out well to square up the final half.
