Call to Honour the Avenue By Bianca Roberts (Intern 3rd Year Melb Uni) It has been an iconic feature in Bacchus Marsh for over 100 years, and one local has an idea to dramatically revive the Avenue of Honour. Glenda Jones, co-owner of Jeff Jones Plant and Produce in Bacchus Marsh, proposed at a Women in Business Luncheon, each of the 281 elm trees be illuminated for a limited period each year: from Remembrance Day, November 11 to Anzac Day, April 25. “It’s just a dream that I have because I love it so much… it could be made just that little more interesting and informative,” she told the Moorabool News. Ms Jones said the limited period would enhance the tourist attraction of the site. “If it’s lit up all the time it becomes nothing; this way, it would have meaning. “It’s an attraction that people would come to see… and tourism brings so much money into the town,” she said. Furthermore, the advent of an interactive app or information boards with QR codes would help to better communicate the meaning of the site to visitors. “People come into my shop asking questions all time … is it for World War I or II?” Ms Jones proposed that local families could submit stories about the person represented, as a means of bringing the history back to life, “Truly honouring their memory,” she said. After seeing children flood the Avenue due to playing the outdoorbased video game Pokémon-Go, Ms Jones has hopes a similar digital interface will be the key to engaging younger generations. “It will be a whole new means of commemorating the lives of those who served,” she said. President of the Bacchus Marsh RSL, Cherrison Lawton, endorses the idea. “I think it’d be absolutely wonderful. Anything we could do to highlight that area would be fantastic,” she said. The Bacchus Marsh Avenue of Honour was originally planted on Glenda Jones is proposing for the Avenue in Bacchus Marsh to be honoured with lights and historical information.

Nine years for Woolpack death By Lachlan Ellis A Pentland Hills man has been sentenced at the Supreme Court of Victoria, after pleading guilty to a manslaughter that occurred last year. Damien Janson, 32, was involved in a drug deal that went horribly wrong on 20 May 2020, resulting in the death of 24-year-old Jake Smith. At the 4 June hearing last week, Justice Elizabeth Hollingworth summarised the incident, and Mr Janson’s history, before handing down the sentence. “You and Mr Sutton argued in his car over the drugs. You wanted to see the drugs, which he said were in the black taped-up bag, but Mr Sutton refused without being given the cash. You both behaved aggressively. You produced a screwdriver, Mr Sutton told you to ‘f*ck off’ and pointed a knife at you,” she said. After Mr Janson got out of Sutton’s car and returned to the car where his friend Mr Langeweg and brother Dylan were waiting, Mr Sutton and the two motorcycle riders, Mr Smith and Mr McLeod, drove away. The court heard there was a brief pursuit, but Mr Janson soon gave up and asked Mr Langeweg to “head home” after losing the trio – but unfortunately, that was not how the night ended. Justice Hollingworth said by coincidence, the two groups met up again a few minutes later on Woolpack Road, Maddingley, driving in opposite directions. “You quickly and unexpectedly reached over with your right hand and grabbed the steering wheel, pushing it to the right.

Dead, after impulsive action By Lachlan Ellis The lawyer for a Pentland Hills man on remand for manslaughter has told Justice Elizabeth Hollingworth that his client’s offence was a “split-second decision” affected by drug use and “impulsive character”. In the Supreme Court of Victoria, 32-year-old Damien Janson entered a guilty plea and was represented in court by Dr Theo Alexander, with Mr John Dickie prosecuting for the Crown. Mr Dickie told Justice Hollingworth that Mr Janson had killed 24-year-old Jake Smith around 7:10 pm on 20 May 2020, by “grabbing the steering wheel of a Mitsubishi Triton ute, in which he was a front passenger”, and turning it to the right to hit Mr Smith’s motorcycle. It was an intended drug deal that went wrong. Instead of selling Mr Janson the drug MDMA – it was actually a black taped up bag of kitty litter Mr Smith’s friend had intended to deceptively sell for $1200 – the dealer argued with Mr Janson, and both drew weapons. The dealer then drove away with a $50 note Janson had given him to measure the drugs. Mr Janson hit the dealer’s sedan with a screwdriver as he drove off. In a quote read out to the court, Mr Janson said to his friend in the ute’s driver seat, “I think these f***ers ripped me off $50, go right, I want to catch up with them”. Though Mr Janson soon gave up the chase and told his friend they should “go home”, by chance, the ute passed Mr Smith and his friends, going the other way on Woolpack Road, Parwan. Mr Janson grabbed the wheel, pulling it to the right, hitting Mr Smith, who was riding his motorcycle following the dealer’s sedan. “Upon being struck, Mr Smith flew over the top of the ute and was thrown 15 to 20 metres into the scrub. Mr Smith incurred multiple and extensive injuries including multiple serious fractures to his pelvis and lower limbs. Those injuries led to his death,” Mr Dickie told the court. The court heard Janson and his friends did not stop to render assistance, instead driving to a farm around 500 metres north of the collision scene; Janson yelled “I’m going to jail” before “running off into adjacent paddocks”. Justice Hollingworth asked the defence what prospects Mr Janson had for rehabilitation after his sentence, given a prior history of drug use, threats of violence and failing to comply with court orders. Dr Alexander listed three factors he believed would motivate Mr Janson to seek rehabilitation. “The conclusion that I urge upon the court are based on three matters. First is, he will be spending a lot of time drugfree in custody. The second matter is his family support. The

third is perhaps most important of all, the lasting effect on him from this offending,” Dr Alexander said. “He will reflect on his drug use, and the consequences of his drug use on this occasion…one referee says quite clearly that he is a good person, but when he uses drugs, he is different. It is the duration of drug use that has resulted in this decision, making the choice that he did,” he said. Justice Hollingworth was unconvinced. “But in the prior history, he has thumbed his nose at the law, how is that out of his general character? I accept that he hasn’t engaged in acts of violence, but he has a very extensive criminal history,” she replied. “He clearly has a problem with cars and controlling his behaviour. This is not out of general character in some ways. Where do I get the comfort that this kind of thing isn’t going to happen again?” Psychological reports were submitted by the defence, and while they showed a history of psychological issues, Justice Hollingworth said it appeared Mr Janson “has taken no responsibility” in sorting those issues out.

The Supreme Court also heard victim impact statements from the family of Mr Smith. Mother, Leanne Davey, read out her own statement, as well as those of Mr Smith’s father Jamie Smith, and brother Trent Lachmund. “I should have been first; we’re not supposed to outlive our children. In the end, I’ll never be satisfied with the sentencing, it won’t bring my son back,” Ms Davey said. In their statements, Mr Smith and Mr Lachmund expressed their anger at Mr Janson’s actions, with Mr Smith calling Janson’s actions “cowardly and despicable”, and Mr Lachmund stating that he had “so much rage and anger inside me…I have difficulties believing it is real”. Jake Smith’s sister-in-law, Ricci Johnson, said his death meant her children would never know their uncle, and he would never be able to “take them out on adventures”. “When I had my twins in 2019, Jake was so excited. He couldn’t wait until they were walking and talking so he could take them out on adventures. There was a light in his life that gave him hope for his future. That was five months before he was killed,” Ms Johnson said. Members of Mr Janson’s family were also present but did not speak during the session.

most recent meeting on Tuesday 11 May. Mr Saunders told the Moorabool News he had hoped for some genuine two-way communication from AusNet when he applied to join the CCG, but believed AusNet was not “empathetic” towards affected landowners’ concerns. “From a personal viewpoint, I went onto this committee expecting to have some interaction with AusNet that would solve our community concerns…the committee is essentially unanimous in its op-

position to the power lines going overhead, and AusNet is not giving us anything to go back to the community with,” Mr Saunders said. “Even now, they’re not bending one centimetre, one millimetre, towards accommodating our input… they’re giving me, personally, no feeling that anything we’re raising as major issues are being listened to.” Mr Saunders said AusNet had no social licence, but efficient communication with the community would help that. “The whole point of this social licence that they’re so keen on getting, has got to be that the community has been consulted, their

“The ute collided with Mr Smith and his bike in the southbound lane of Woolpack Road…the collision happened so quickly that Mr Smith didn’t have time to react. After being struck, he was thrown over the top of the ute, and 15 to 20 metres into the bush. Mr Smith sustained multiple and extensive injuries, from which he ultimately died, despite resuscitation efforts.” Justice Hollingworth acknowledged Mr GO WHERE THE TRADIES GO


“You have a long history of adult criminal offending, beginning in 2008 when you were 19. You’ve regularly been given communitybased orders, and ordered to attend alcohol and drug counselling as part of those orders. “You’ve shown little regard for court orders, having been brought regularly before the courts for failing to comply with them, and breaching bail.” The trauma imposed on Mr Smith’s family was also acknowledged by the Justice, as well as the “selfish, cowardly gesture” of Janson running away from the scene of the incident, “leaving your friend and your brother to face the consequences of your actions”.

But it appears nothing has happened since then,” she said. “I maintain that this offending, and the consequences of it, have had a profound impact on him, and will motivate him to address the matters that weren’t addressed in 2018,” Dr Alexander replied. The matter was adjourned sine die, meaning it will be heard again at a later date that is yet to be decided.

concerns have been taken notice of, and measures have been taken to address them,” he said. “But I’m not hearing a word from AusNet. At the end of the meeting the other night, the Chair asked us to give one final reflection on what we’d learned from that evening’s proceedings…of the seven of us physically there, four or five actually said they were very much concerned at the lack of empathy AusNet was showing.” An AusNet spokesperson provided a statement to the Moorabool News, stating that the company was open to hearing community concerns. “The Community Consultation

Groups are an additional opportunity to share information about the project with the community and encourage constructive two-way discussion and feedback in a forum run by an independent chair. This forum runs in parallel with the Environment Effects Statement which will consider undergrounding,” the spokesperson said. The statement went on to read, “The Community Consultation Group is made up of a wide representation across the community. We recognise and welcome a diverse range of views within the group and acknowledge there will be differing views across the community.”

Had you not pleaded guilty, I would have sentenced you to 11 years imprisonment, with a non-parole period of 8 years,” the Justice said. “Further, I declare that the period reckoned as already served under this sentence is 378 days, not including today’s date.

Support local, shop local By Bianca Roberts (Intern 3rd Year Melb Uni) For over the past 12-months there has been a common catch cry, Shop Local, and now Council is calling upon residents to consider a new directory to support local businesses. ‘Moorabool Localised’, has been launched by Moorabool Shire Council and is an online directory of local businesses at your fingertips. “Clearly, it’s a good philosophy to support local businesses,” Ballan Chamber of Commerce President, Michael Ryan said. However, the pure presence of a directory is not enough, according to President of BizConnect Bacchus Marsh Ian Prince. “I love the concept of having a directory… but it’s got to be promoted,” he said. “It needs to be front of mind everywhere… in every shop window.” Mr Prince believes the promotion of a community-wide slogan may be useful. “Something like ‘Spend local to grow local’,” he said.

Council figures show over 60 per cent of working residents leave the Shire each day, most commonly to commercial areas such as Ballarat or the Melbourne CBD. “You’ve got to think they would be shopping where they work too,” Mr Ryan said. However, there is a plan for Ballan. Ballan and District Chamber of Commerce recently received over $16,000 from the Ballan & District Community Bank, as part of a Community Investment grant, that will see the commerce group develop a five-year business plan for the area. “This will look at ways to promote the benefits of shopping locally and to enhance the attraction for day trippers from Melbourne,” Mr Ryan said. Collaboration between local businesses will be key, and he welcomes local businesses to engage with the Chamber of Commerce in this process. “A sense of community thinking is needed to get businesses to work together to make it happen,” he said.

Cameras may deter illegal dumping By Bianca Roberts (Intern 3rd Year Melb Uni) Beware litterers, Big Brother may soon be watching. Costing Council $80,000 per year to clean up illegally dumped rubbish, they have been mapping and monitoring common dumping grounds and, are exploring the idea of installing surveillance cameras to catch people in the act. Council is remaining tight-lipped on the specific details, with no budget or timeline determined yet as the “idea is still in its infancy”. Meanwhile, residents are encouraged to be Council’s eyes on the ground. If witnessing an instance of illegal dumping, Council is asking residents to call Customer Service on 5366 7100 and to take photos of the offending waste and, if possible, the vehicle registration of the alleged dumper. Under the Environment Protection Act 1970, the minimum penalty for littering is $303. The penalty given depends on the size and type of the dumped litter. Residents are urged to utilise one of the shire’s three transfer stations at What appears to be a tipper load of rubbish dumped on the Parwan South road on Saturday 22 May.

The destination is Moorabool By Lachlan Ellis The future of rural Victoria could be bright thanks to rising population growth, depending on how we accommodate it, according to The Demographics Group head Bernard Salt AM. A renowned demographer and social commentator, Mr Salt is perhaps most famous for popularising the phrase “smashed avo” in a 2016 article in the Weekend Australian, blaming exorbitant spending on food for declining home ownership among millennials. Councillors Ally Munari and Moira Berry represented Moorabool at a Rural Councils Victoria (RCV) event in Nagambie on Thursday May 27, where Mr Salt spoke about his recent report, titled ‘Demographic Destiny: Opportunities for Rural Victoria in the Post-pandemic Era’. Mr Salt said that there had been a trend of young people leaving rural areas to obtain further education, training, and work – but the pandemic had changed this dynamic. “This outflow robbed rural communities of demographic and workforce depth in the 20s and 30s cohorts, and the energy and ideas that youth retain. The pandemic has changed all that,” Mr Salt said. “With an influx of new residents, many rural communities can now think boldly, ambitiously and outrageously about the kind of communities they want to build for the future. “If it is true that Australians are indeed motivated by lifestyle, then this coming decade truly is rural Victorian communities’ time to shine.” Cr Munari told the Moorabool News she was happy she attended the event, although the

lockdown announcement had meant it had to be rushed and compacted into one day. “It was a wonderful event put on by the committee for Rural Councils Victoria and, we just wish it had panned out the way it was planned,” she said. “We got to catch up and meet councillors and mayors from all different rural councils…it was amazing how far some people had come for the event.” The population growth highlighted by Mr Salt’s report – almost 50,000 residents predicted by 2036 – presents both an opportunity and a challenge for Moorabool, but Cr Munari believes Council has the right people to meet that challenge. “You look at Bacchus Marsh today and think, we’re hardly coping now, so we’re really going to have to lean on the Government for help. There’s infrastructure – we’re always fighting for that – and there’s the roads…and I think it scares people to think, how will we cope?” she said. “Obviously it’s hard for me, because I’ve only been on Council for six months…but what I’m seeing, as a new Councillor, is that we have the right people in place in Moorabool Shire, that are looking ahead, that are planning with that in mind. Cr Munari said she feels Moorabool is in good hands. “There are things being put in place, the Eastern Link Road is in the works for example. The growth of Bacchus Marsh and Ballan, for example, is a big topic behind the scenes at Council at the moment…so to know there is work being done is a nice ‘cushion’ behind the scenes.” Council’s own estimates predict a population for Moorabool of almost 64,000 by 2041.

State receives part pet fees By Bianca Roberts (Intern 3rd Year Melb Uni) The Victorian Government receives four dollars from every pet registration fee paid to councils — but where does this money go? This was the question asked by Bev McArthur MP in State parliament recently. With 662,866 dogs and 221,548 cats registered in 2019, “the total sum remitted under [the Domestic Animals Act 1994] is therefore more than $3.5 million each year,” she said. According to Ms McArthur, the Minister for Agriculture, Mary-Anne Thomas, displayed a lack of accounting for these funds. A spokesperson for Agriculture Victoria told the Moorabool News the government is committed to the promotion of animal welfare and responsible pet ownership. “Under the Domestic Animals Act 1994 (the Act), local councils are required to make annual payments to government for each dog and cat registration fee collected. “This fee can only be used for specific legislated purposes as outlined in the Act, including promoting responsible dog and cat ownership, animal welfare, domestic animal management research and the

administration of the Act,” the spokesperson told the Moorabool News. A recent example of this was Animal Welfare Victoria’s latest advertising campaign, launched May 13, informing Victorians about the importance of keeping dogs safely confined within their property. Ms McArthur suggested targeted changes to the current taxation scheme, including the return of the four dollars collected for any animal successfully adopted from a rescue sanctuary. “… reward[ing] pet owners who want to help abandoned animals – and councils would still get their licence fee for pedigree animals,” she said. The Victorian Government directly funds the Animal Welfare Fund (AWF) grants program and has awarded approximately $3.5 million since it began in 2011, supporting animal shelters, foster carers, community vet clinics and other eligible organisations to continue their valued services within the community. A spokesperson for Moorabool Shire Council said their local pound has no record of receiving any such funding in recent years.

Program puts youth on the road

By Bianca Roberts (Intern 3rd Year Melb Uni) Zac Purcell was desperate to help his Nan make her chemotherapy appointments in Ballarat, but the 18-year-old had a problem: he could not drive. Thankfully, with the help of a joint initiative between the Traffic Accident Commission (TAC) and Djerriwarrh Community & Education Services, he was given a helping hand to get on the road. The TAC L2P Program is a long-standing initiative that helps learner drivers without an available supervisor match with a mentor, who will assist them in meeting their requisite 120 hours. David Slater, who volunteered as Zac’s mentor driver, told the Moorabool News Zac was a “keen learner”, achieving his required 120 hours in only a matter of months. This included a range of driving scenarios, including city traffic and four-hour long country drives. Kim Leech, program coordinator at Djerriwarrh Health, is proud the program

has allowed Zac to achieve his goals in such a short period of time. “Zac now drives his Nan to her weekly medical appointments in Ballarat, relieving her of that huge strain,” she said. Mr Slater said Zac has been “ready to go” for his license for months now, but unfortunately regulations stand in the way. Having received his learner permit in August 2020, he is still waiting for the mandatory 12 month holding period to expire. The L2P program is currently open to new applications from Moorabool residents who meet the following criteria: • are aged 16-21, • hold a current learner’s permit and, •h  ave no access to a vehicle or supervising driver. The program is supported by Melton Toyota, Harrison Hyundai, Rotary Bacchus Marsh and Bacchus Marsh Workwear and Safety. Learners wishing to access the program, as well as those wishing to volunteer as a driving mentor, are urged to call Djerriwarrh Melton on 8746 1000.

Doggone proposal denied which either emit a high-pitched sound, apply an electric shock, or spray a dog when it barks.

By Lachlan Ellis An application for a Use of the Land for Domestic Animal Husbandry in Gordon has been refused by Council, with two neighbouring properties submitting objections.

Cr Moira Berry commented the devices were “cruel” – an opinion backed by the RSPCA, which states it is “opposed to the use of any electronically activated or other devices which deliver electric shocks, such as anti-barking collars”.

At the Development Assessment Committee (DAC) Meeting on Wednesday 19 May, Council’s planning team recommended that Council issue a Refusal, based on inappropriate land use and “unreasonable amenity impacts to surrounding residents”.

The recommendation to refuse the application was moved by Cr Tonia Dudzik and seconded by Cr Paul Tatchell, with Cr David Edwards opposing the recommendation, opening a debate.

Ms Bridget Clow, the applicant for the Planning Permit at 29 Evergreen Way, said her plans would not inconvenience her neighbours, and that she had taken steps to minimise noise. “We purchased the property 23 years ago and moved in in 1998 with five dogs. We have one to two litters per year…this permit is to continue a use that has occurred for 23 years,” Ms Clow said. “The application is to have 15 resident dogs, and allow another three short-term for breeding,” she said. Ms Clow said no other neighbours had complained except for the new people who have moved in. “Based on hearing this complaint, I made a number of changes to management to further reduce noise. I have checked twice since those changes in January [2021], and they have both told me that they do not hear

“People buying in a rural area expecting a rural lifestyle…and this is not what any person would expect when they buy a rural residential property. In my view it’s not acceptable, it’s too many dogs on one property,” Cr Dudzik argued.

the dogs barking from our property.” Ms Clow suggested concerns that property values in the area would drop if dogs were bred nearby was the main reason for the complaints, but her neighbours, Mr and Mrs Kris and Mr Elliott and Ms Westoby, disagreed that property values were the only factor. “A breeding operation with 10 bitches based on only 1 litter per year and an average of only 6 pups per litter means an additional 60 dogs on this property. We would submit that this is a commercial activity which is

incompatible with a Rural Living zoning,” Mr and Mrs Kris wrote. “We are also concerned that the planning permit which is for ‘Animal Keeping’ could also be used to operate a boarding kennel or animal shelter and as anyone that has ever visited such a facility will know, the noise levels are horrendous.” Mr Elliott & Ms Westoby expressed similar concerns in their submission. Part of Ms Clow’s measures to reduce her dogs’ noise included anti-barking collars,

Cr Edwards drew comparison to an earlier meeting, in which Council had refused a similar application in a Farming Zone. “If we can’t have it in a Farming Zone, we can’t have it in the Rural Living Zone, where do we have these things?” Cr Edwards said. “We need to find somewhere to have these places. When the majority of people own dogs, we need dog breeders. If we say no, we drive illegal breeders to breed these dogs without conditions,” he said. The refusal was carried with approval by Crs Dudzik, Tatchell and Munari, with Crs Berry and Edwards opposing it.

Failed to vote? Time to pay A stern reminder has been issued by the Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC), urging Victorians with outstanding nonvoting fines from the 2020 local council elections to act now. A number of non-voters have received, or will receive, a Penalty Reminder Notice that carries an additional fee of $25.80, for failing to pay the initial $83 Infringement Notice within 35 days. Electoral Commissioner Warwick Gately recommended that anyone who receives a Penalty Reminder Notice should act as soon as possible. “If you receive a Penalty Reminder Notice in the mail you need to take action. Do not ignore the notice, or your details will be provided to the Director of Fines Victoria for further enforcement action.” Mr Gately said. Non-voters have 28 days to respond to the Penalty Reminder Notice. If you are unsure what to do, you can call the VEC on 1300 551 575, or go online and visit vec.vic.gov.au/voting/ fines-and-reviews.

Park that thought By Lachlan Ellis The deadline is up for feedback on the Moorabool Car Parking Study, and while work is underway on a draft, there will be more opportunities to ‘Have Your Say’ in the future. The Car Parking Study is one of many projects Council has sought feedback on over the past year, with Council eager to hear what parking needs and changes Mooraboolites feel are needed. Council stopped taking submissions on 24 May, but Executive Manager of Community Planning and Economic Development, Henry Bezuidenhout,

said this was only the first chance locals would have to put forward their ideas.

about safety and walkability, as well as parking and signage.

“Through our ‘Have your Say’ portal, we received 810 views and 57 pin-drops or comments about key parking issues, proposed signage or other changes, or improvements to pedestrian accessibility and safety,” Mr Bezuidenhout told the Moorabool News.

“Council is currently reviewing the comments to see how they can be incorporated in the Car Parking Study and Policy. Council officers will continue to prepare the draft Car Parking Study and Car Parking Policy. Future community consultation will be undertaken on both the draft study and draft policy later this year,” he said.

“Most comments were received in Bacchus Marsh, primarily around Bacchus Marsh Primary School, and extending down Grant Street. The comments provided covered concerns

A summary of the community’s feedback will be uploaded to Council’s car parking ‘Have Your Say’ page in the coming weeks on their website.

Budget doesn’t drive the dollar further By Bianca Roberts (Intern 3rd Year Melb Uni) Calls for investment in Moorabool Shire have gone largely unanswered, with the 2021/22 Victorian State Budget providing zero direct investment in civil or social infrastructure. Of the $3.7 billion dollars promised to regional Victoria, Moorabool Shire will receive only 0.0079 per cent, or around $8.14 per person. This figure relates to a $293,000 grant for the an Equine Sanctuary in Gordon, with the support from Animal Justice Party MP, Andy Meddick. Moorabool Mayor Cr Tom Sullivan told the Moorabool News this comes as no surprise to him, being an issue “we’ve always suffered from.” “We have big neighbours that do a lot better than we do,” he said. Cr Sullivan says he is disappointed that no help was afforded to developing a sewerage system in Bungaree-Wallace. It is “unfair”, he said, “that the council must continuously utilise citizens’ rate payments for items that generally receive state funding in other shires. “Moorabool citizens pay their taxes too,” he said. The City of Melton received over $270 million in this budget for a number of projects, including water and sewerage works, but also the construction of a new hospital and primary school and youth crime prevention programs. The Moorabool Shire did benefit recently from a $4 million dollar investment in sporting facility upgrades at Maddingley, which came from a separate tender to the annual budget, and $3.5 million for an Early Years and Community Hub at Maddingley from the Growing Suburbs Fund. The Shire may indirectly benefit from the budget’s statewide items, including the $700 million to be invested in regional mental health support services, and reductions to payroll tax for regional businesses, which will drop to 1.21 per cent.

Five tips for mouse control on farms

When was the last time you reviewed your mice management? Here are five tips for mouse control on farms from the Grains Research and Development Corporation to ensure mice numbers remain low and don’t build up and become uncontrollable. 1. A  pply broad scale zinc phosphide bait: According to the label, at the prescribed rate of 1kg/ha. 2. Apply bait at seeding or within 24 hours: While seed is still covered by soil increasing the likelihood of mice taking the bait, prior to finding the seed. Rebait through the season as needed. 3. T  iming is critical: Delays of 4-5 days in baiting after seeding can give mice time to find crop seed. High populations can cause up to 5 per cent damage each night. 4. Monitor paddocks: Check paddocks regularly. 5. After harvest and prior to sowing – minimise sources of food and shelter: Control weeds and volunteer crops along fence lines, clean up residual grain by grazing or rolling stubbles. More information is available on the Agriculture Victoria website.

Dear Editor, Why is it, with all the publicity about Covid, that people still do not wear masks in the shopping centres or do not wear them correctly, covering nose AND mouth. They are for everyone's protection not just the use as chin warmers. A police walk through of the complex would nail a lot of ‘no-gooders’, let alone a few dollars for the coffers. It just seems to be getting worse and no one is interested. Maurice Collier Bacchus Marsh Dear Editor, I write in concern to the proposed SP ausnet's decision to erect high voltage transmission lines and towers through parts of Western Victoria. As our demands for electrical power increases, so does the impact on communities affected by these types of infra structure. There is no doubt that current windfarm and solar technology has a large part to play relating to supplying a smoother transition of electrical power into the current grid system. However, finding alternative routes, or underground cabling (environmental impact) may not be the solution? I am not an advocate of windfarm or solar farm technologies, as there are too many fluctuations in power outputs. No or low wind speeds severely affect turbines, and solar panels don't work at night. Tony Brimson Ballan Dear Editor, Emerging out of another week of lockdown, it occurs to me to ask: What do AusNet and COVID19 have in common? The answer is clear and simple: both are not welcome in Moorabool! I was given a vaccine the other day to stop COVID… we need to keep fighting to find a similar solution to stop AusNet’s towers. Jim Phasey Myrniong


Cars have been neglected since Covid arrived. Money is tighter, many people are working more from home. Has lockdowns reduced the amount of kms that you would normally travel? Springfields knows that you can not afford for your car to let you down when you need it the most! Let us change your oil, and ensure you car is safe on the wet and icy Ballan roads this winter.

Ballan Community Bank 2021 Community Investment Grants

In just under ten-years, the local Community Bank in Ballan has invested over $962,000 in community contributions. And, it is not just community groups who benefit. Scholarships have become part of the Banks investment to students heading into university and TAFE. Board member Dominic Hanrahan said in 2019 they awarded their first undergraduate bachelor’s degree for first year level for $2,000. “In 2020 it was increased to two lots of $2,000 scholarships and in 2021 we awarded 7 x $2,500 Scholarships.” Mr Hanrahan said six were for undergraduate bachelor’s degree for first year level with the addition of the associate degree TAFE Scholarship. Successful applicants were: • Samuel Lidgett – Bachelor Degree Civil Engineering • Jake Leahy – Bachelor Degree Computer Science • Sarah Elander – Bachelor Degree Veterinary – Natural & Physical Sciences • Libby George – Bachelor Degree Architecture • Kate Brophy - Bachelor of Arts – Society & Culture • Finnley Greet – Bachelor of Arts – Creative Arts • Indya Forde – Associate Degree Engineering “These scholarships are making good things happen,” Mr Hanrahan said. Chairman Darren Rix said with over $900,000 in ten-years of community contribution, it is a “good news story”. “It’s our bank, we own it, and we decide where the money goes. “To hear the enthusiasm from the 17-community organisation recipients; the difference our contribution can make no matter how small, to me really is a buzz,” he said.

DEATH NOTICE Vale Stan Kershaw For those of you who don't know Stan, he became a Life Member of the Bacchus Marsh West Golf Club in 1987 and, still turned up every day helping on course until a stroke stopped him in 2016 when in his 80s. Stan set the precedence for our club and what it meant to be a volunteer. He also ran the social committee in his time with us. A left-handed player who would be the first to admit his driving ability off the tee was the best of his short game. A member for over 50 years. Stan, we will be forever in your debt, and you will always be in our hearts. - Committee, members, volunteers, friends of the Bacchus Marsh West Golf Club

Hopeful Beauty (9) winning at Tabcorp Park on Saturday. Photo Stuart McCormick

Another Dam Beauty emerges By Shaun Campbell A French-bred trotter has announced herself as a potential future star with a beauty of a win at Tabcorp Park Melton on Saturday night. Hopeful Beauty, the product of French stallion Brillantissime and French mare Beauty Life, overcame a back-row draw to win the Aldebaran Park Sweetheart Trot Final in impressive fashion for owners Yabby Dam Farms. After settling towards the rear, driver Jason Lee took advantage of a slow pace up front to whiz the mare around to the lead with a lap to go before careering away to win by 15 metres in a 2:00.6 mile rate. She has now won three of her last five starts and Lee told Trots Vision after the race her stable expected more to come. “(Trainer) Anton (Golino) has always had the opinion that she’ll keep getting better,” Lee said. “(He) just had to teach her to be a racehorse and she’s starting to put it all together.” Lee said he needed a “bit of luck” for the mid-race move to pay off. “I was sort of half-happy where we were, knowing that we would probably be able to follow Josh (Duggan on La Serana) into the race,” he said. “(But) the speed had sort of slackened out of it a little bit; I just thought we’d take off and chance our arm - it came off and we looked good, if it hadn’t we would have looked bad.” Lee said the win showed Hopeful Beauty had more than one string to her bow. “I have sort of always had a soft spot for her

in that I think she is really fast and eventually she will be able to get off the gate pretty good too,” he said. “The other thing is I think she is pretty tough, which she’s shown tonight. I think as she gets down in grade it’s not going to worry her whether she has to come with one run or have to do a little bit of work, and I think that’s her best attribute.” Hopeful Beauty’s commanding win wasn’t the only trotting highlight from Saturday night - Norquay returned to the winners' list in the Hyland Racing Colours Trot, as did Royal Charlotte in the Dynamic Print Group Trot. And star Sparkling Success added yet another Group 3 win to his impressive resume in the Niota Bloodstock I Didnt Do It Trotters Free For All. The pacers didn’t disappoint either, with Torrid Saint’s win in the Allied Express Pace a big talking point after the five-yearold paced roughly at the line. But HRV Chairman of Stewards Brett Day told Trots Vision it didn’t cost the five-year-old the race because he maintained his gait to the line. And Sirletic overcame a talented field to win the TAB Long May We Play Pace in a sizzling 1:52.3 mile rate for Josh and David Aiken. Josh said the seven-year-old, a consistent top-level placegetter, had to be driven as a sitsprinter but possessed the “electric speed” needed to win a Group 1 race with the right run. “He is going to be the sort of horse that, with that turn of foot, he’ll run into the money most weeks,” he said. “Obviously driven that way he is going to have some bad luck at times, but when he gets the split, he shows how deadly he is.”

★★★★★★★★ ★★★★★★★★ ARIES—March 21-April 20

This is a good time for local jaunts, especially those of an educational nature. This week has a nostalgic theme, perhaps promoted by a call from a long-ago friend. A platonic friendship is enhanced. TAURUS—April 21-May 22

Advice rendered to others works well for yourself - especially in the realms of romance and career. Festivities on the weekend can play havoc with your diet. There could be some good financial news by the end of the week. GEMINI—May 23-June 21

Communication is the week’s theme. Making requests are unusually simple, and email address problems are solved at last. Reading between fine lines is a must when dealing with matters legal or professional.
