Scouts Honour

By Lachlan Ellis Six Scouts from Moorabool have been awarded the top award in their Section, travelling to Victoria’s largest Scout Park to accept the honour. The Australian Scout Award is the peak award for the Scout Section (ages 11–15), and this year six members of the 1st Ballan Scouts received the Award: Imogen Davie, Cooper Bellette, Jess Jones, Millie Sparkes, Addison Crane, and Robert Johnson. The six recipients were presented with their Certificate and Medallion at Gilwell Scout Park, along with around 100 Scouts from across the state, on Saturday 28 May. On Friday 3 June, they were presented with their Badges at a family night organised within the 1st Ballan Scout Group. Robert Johnson said it was an honour to receive the Award, and thanked the community and the 1st Ballan Scouts for helping him achieve the milestone.

“To be honest it was a surprise to receive the Award, it took a while to get there…there’s a checklist of things you have to achieve, and through the amazing 1st Ballan Scouts and the people that run it, I’d already done half of the things on there,” he told the Moorabool News. “I’ve really enjoyed the social aspect of Scouts and the relationships I’ve made with people. You spend a lot of time with people at school, but spending a weekend camping with the Scouts you just have hours of talking and getting to know people, building lifelong friends.” Imogen Davie said the achievement was the result of a wonderful journey. “It feels like the culmination of ten years of adventure and fun, from Joeys through to Scouts. My Australian Scout Award is a symbol of the experience I have had and the lessons I have learned along the way. Completing this has given me experiences that I would not otherwise have had,” Ms Davie said.

Along the journey to receiving the Australian Scout Award, the six Scouts – alongside other 1st Ballan Scouts – have taken part in a number of experiences, including but certainly not limited to, exploring the Great Ocean Walk and South Coast Walk, riding the O’Keefe Rail Trail, paddling along the Glenelg River, and attending statewide Scouting Events with over 1,000 Scouts. They have also supported the local community, working with the Ballan Community House’s Steptoes Op Shop, delivering firewood for the Moorabool Shire, supporting the RSL during ANZAC Day Dawn Services and Parades, assisting the Ballan Autumn Festival, to name a few. The 1st Ballan Scout Group is always looking for new youth members between 5 – 26, as well as adults willing to stand up, inspire, and contribute to the education of young people. With a new home currently being built, now is a fantastic time to join. For further information visit - www.1stballanscouts. com.au, or contact 1stballanscouts@gmail.com.

Aussie gamer By Lachlan Ellis A Bacchus Marsh man has been named in a squad of just 34 cyclists to represent the country at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, just a month after winning gold in Canada. The Moorabool News had 21-year-old Graeme Frislie on the front page edition (14 June) after he won the Nations Cup in Milton, Canada last month, and last week he took his career one step further, being named to compete in the Men’s Track Cycling Endurance event. Mr Frislie said he had “committed his life” to cycling since graduating from Bacchus Marsh Grammar school three years ago, and he was excited to see his hard work paying off. “It’s a pretty big honour to be selected in the team. It’s still a bit surreal, it hasn’t really sunk in yet and I don’t think it will for a while. But I’m excited for the opportunity and keen to get going,” he told the Moorabool News. “Over the past three years or so this is all I’ve really done with myself…it’s been day in day out training, eating right, focusing on my sleep and everything since 2019,” he said. “It’s been a culmination of the past four or five years of hard work that’s gotten me where I am now, so it’s good to see that pay off. A few months ago, the long squad got to try on all the formal gear for the opening ceremony… when I put on all the formal stuff, I felt a bit sick to my stomach, it still doesn’t really feel real.” Proud mum Shelley praised Graeme for his dedication, and said it was amazing to see

him rewarded with Commonwealth Games selection. “AusCycling made the official announcement on Thursday [16 June]…Mike and I are very excited. It just shows that Graeme’s hard work has paid off, and he and his team are getting some reward for all the dedication they’ve put in,” Ms Frislie said. “Because of COVID, they haven’t had the opportunity to travel and compete overseas, so it’s nice that they’ll have that now on an elite world level, that’s exciting.” Which event or events each cyclist will compete in hasn’t been finalised yet, but Mr Frislie’s victory with his team at the Men’s Elite Team Pursuit at the Nations Cup will hopefully put him in good stead to compete in the Men’s Team Pursuit at the Commonwealth Games. Track cycling events in the 2022 Commonwealth Games will be held at the Lee Valley VeloPark in London, from 29 July to 1 August. In the lead-up to the Games, the Australian cycling squad will head to Newport in Wales to train in a similar climate to what they’ll be racing in. Commonwealth Games Australia Team Chef de Mission, Petria Thomas OAM, said she was looking forward to watching the team’s efforts, and knew the team would be “working hard between now and the Games, ready to be bold, brave and brilliant in Birmingham”. “I wish them all the best for their preparations and competition, and hope they know we are all behind them,” she said.

Milestone for humble Cobra By Todd Whelan Cobra’s favorite son Tyson Shea was honoured with a corridor of red, yellow and black applause ahead of his 250th game on the long weekend. Players, officials and supporters alike welcomed the 33-year-old with his two daughters, onto the field in front of a momentous banner to savour. The occasion was just the boost the playing group were after, with an all-important four premiership points at stake against a struggling Sunbury aiming to keep their season alive. The Cobras honoured the call and 'got it done' for Shea on a day that coincided with the sixth anniversary of the clubs 2016 BFNL Premiership. After leading at every change the Cobras put together their best team performance of the season to win by 51 points. The enormity of Shea's contribution was not missed by current Cobras Tom German in the post-match. "Tyson's a pleasure to coach," German said. "He had another one of his trademark games, it's a credit to how he prepares week in, week out." German said Shea had not missed a game through injury since Under 12s and remains an important asset to both the coaches and the players. Shea conceded 300 games may be a bridge too far with work and family commitments but is really enjoying his footy at the moment. "It was really special to see the 2016 Premiership team and seeing some players we haven't seen since the Premiership that brought so much joy to all at the club," The Cobras couldn't have wished for a more honest contributor despite Shea's humble reflections in the aftermath. "All I've done is given my all every time I pull on the number 14 jumper, and try to be the best player I can be to get the win," he said.

The club and the people have given me more than I have given them. - Tyson Shea "The club and the people have given me more than I have given them. "The warm messages and calls before the game was a bit overwhelming," Shea said. A satisfied and content Shea made comment on his 'pretty unique' football journey. "I've experienced the lows of 30 goal losses and wooden spoons to the high of winning a Premiership," he said. Cobras 2016 Premiership coach Travis Hodgson described Shea as "the true definition of a champion local footballer."

A fair go for ratepayers? By Lachlan Ellis New legislation has come before the State Parliament which the Andrews Government has promoted as “giving ratepayers a fair go” – but some in local government have raised suspicions at the timing of the bill. The ‘Local Government Amendment (Rating Reform and Other Matters) Bill 2022’ will limit how councils can pursue ratepayer debts, including a ban on the use of debt collectors or legal action, “unless ratepayers refuse to engage, and all other options have been exhausted”. It will also allow the Minister for Local Government, in consultation with the Essential Services Commission (ESC), to set a maximum amount of interest levied on unpaid rates and charges. In a statement, Minister Shaun Leane said the State Government “know that many Victorians are doing it tough and that’s why we are working to reform the rating system”. “Good hardship relief schemes strike a balance where the rate burden is shared while ensuring people in hardship are not driven further into debt or out of their homes,” Mr Leane said. Moorabool Shire Council CEO Derek Madden said the changes proposed by the Amendment were still being investigated by Council, but it seemed the changes were broadly in line with how Council has dealt with ratepayer debt during the pandemic.

This triple dipping across three tax agencies is the root of the problem. - Cr Tatchell “Council has always offered payment plans to support our community to meet their financial obligations, and throughout the pandemic, we withheld interest payments on principal places of residence where required,” Mr Madden told the Moorabool News. “Like many other councils, Moorabool Shire only pursue legal action as a last resort to recovering outstanding rates. The proposed changes therefore closely align with our current debt collection practices.” Though he “welcomes any changes to legislation that result in consistency and equity for all ratepayers”, Mr Madden drew attention to the timing of the bill’s introduction, less than six months out from a state election. “As a principle, Council supports legislation that leads to positive outcomes for all ratepayers, but does not support the politicising of financial hardship policies in the lead-up to a state election, when the vast majority of Victorian councils worked very diligently to help their communities during the pandemic,” he said.

“The recent pandemic provided numerous examples of Victorian councils working with their communities in a respectful and compassionate manner to navigate the uncertainties and financial challenges posed by the recent pandemic. It is important to note that many of these challenges that came about were largely the result of State Government policy, mandates, and extended lockdowns.” Central Ward Councillor Paul Tatchell, a long-time proponent of rates reform and reining in of taxes, said the State Government’s pledge to give ratepayers a fair go was “all spin”. “It doesn’t address the actual problem, that we’re taxing people into debt. People pay income tax, then they pay the State Government for its services, and then they pay local government. This triple dipping across three tax agencies is the root of the problem,” Cr Tatchell said. “When are we going to have the discussion about what’s fair and reasonable to charge people? This announcement from the State Government is just a grandiose headline to pluck a few votes.” The first reading of the bill passed in the Legislative Assembly (lower house) on 7 June, and the second reading was moved on 8 June. The final clause of the bill states that it will be repealed on 20 June 2024.

Food bank break-in

By Lachlan Ellis A local food bank was the victim of a heartless break-in last week, with damage to the building to put the not-for-profit out of pocket. The Neighbours’ Place at 77 Main Street, Bacchus Marsh provides vulnerable locals with emergency food relief and no-interest loans. On Tuesday 14 June, The Neighbours’ Place was broken into, and while nothing major was stolen, damage to the building’s locks will cut into funds intended to help those in need. Jackie Tabone is Co-Ordinator of The Neighbours' Place and said she can’t understand why the break-in was necessary. “It must have happened on Tuesday night, they haven’t made a big mess, but they’ve pulled all the locks and hinges off from the annexe and from the back sheds, and rummaged through the sheds but not taken anything,” Ms Tabone told the Moorabool News. “I opened the gate on Wednesday morning and went ‘oh, gosh, everything is all wide open’. Finding new locks and having them put on the doors, that’s an added expense for us.” You’d understand her being angry, but Ms Tabone expressed sympathy for the culprit or culprits, and said if it was food they were after, to come in when the food bank is open. “I don’t know what they were looking for, if they were looking for food, I hope they have enough. We are a food bank at the end of the day, we’re here to help the community…instead of breaking in, come in on a day we’re open and we’re here to help,” she said. If you have information about the break-in at The Neighbours’ Place, you can call Bacchus Marsh Police Station on 5366 4500, or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. The Neighbours’ Place is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9.30 am to 12.30 pm.

Car rolls on bleak night

By Lachlan Ellis

Bond for disqualified driver By Lachlan Ellis

A woman has been fined and put on a good behaviour bond, after she was caught driving while disqualified in Ballan last year. Anmaree Abbott appeared at the Bacchus Marsh Magistrates’ Court on Friday 3 June via livestream, with Magistrate Hugh Radford hearing that Ms Abbott’s car was also impounded following the offence. “On the 21st of July 2021, police were patrolling on Old Melbourne Road in Ballan, with the automatic number plate recognition system alerting police to white holden SUV, flagging that the registered owner was a disqualified driver,” Police Prosecutor Sergeant Aimee Heal said. “At 2:40 pm police spoke with the accused, she stated she was the registered owner of the car. Checks revealed the accused had been suspended due to demerit points on the 10th of March 2021 for 6 months,

so that would’ve expired on the 9th of September 2021. As her licence had expired during that period, it meant she was disqualified from obtaining a licence until the end of the period,” Sgt Heal said. “The accused was very cooperative with police and made full admissions of driving while suspended. Her car was impounded for 30 days at cost of $1355. She stated to police that she was driving to get to the doctors.” Supporting documents submitted by defence lawyer Matilda Jones confirmed Ms Abbott’s appointment with a doctor on the day of the offending, which the Magistrate took into account. “I’m going to require you to be on good behaviour until the 16th of September 2022, and pay $500 to the court fund. I’ll adjourn this matter to the 16th of September for a diversion agreement,” Magistrate Radford said. “And I’m not going to interfere with your licence.”

Emergency services have attended after a vehicle rolled in Darley last week, with three people taken to hospital following the accident. SES, CFA, police, and paramedics attended the scene at Tramway Lane on Tuesday 14 June, with the rugged terrain making the rescue more difficult. Unit Controller at the Bacchus Marsh SES Unit, Bill Robson, said conditions on the night hindered the rescue effort, but emergency services were able to assist the injured people. “SES Rescue crews were responded at 10.45 pm to assist and extricate a patient because of the remoteness of the area and its rugged terrain. The patient wasn’t trapped in the vehicle, which had rolled and ended up on its roof. SES crews responded with two of our 4WD-capable vehicles to access the patient,” Mr Robson told the Moorabool News. “Only 4WD vehicles could access the scene, with ambulance crews having to park approximately 600 metres down the hill, and be ferried back and forth to the scene. The scene was hampered by its remoteness, preventing any non-4WD vehicle from accessing it. The

wind was also quite severe and very cold,” he said. Mr Robson said two SES 4WDs, one CFA 4WD and two police 4WDs were used to ferry personnel and equipment. An SES 4WD and stretcher were used to slowly and delicately transport the male downhill to the ambulance. “The rescue operation took just over an hour.” An Ambulance Victoria spokesperson said paramedics were called to the scene at approximately 11.30 pm,

Are you game to help? By Lachlan Ellis

Mentees from the ages of 12 to 24 are needed to help increase female participation in sport, and a range of incentives are on offer, including free training. The She’s Game Program is recruiting mentees who live or play sport in Moorabool, teaming them up with mentors to uncover what role they can play in community leadership. The program is being delivered by Western Health, with Moorabool Shire Council partnering up to promote the program. The Mentorship Programs aim to highlight the importance of local sporting clubs in broadening opportunities for women and girls, recognising their contributions, and increasing their participation. Trinity Gathercole is a Health Promotion Officer at Western Health, and said after the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on local sport, now was a crucial time to support female sport. “This Program has been on hold for 12 months due to the various impacts COVID-19 has had on local sport. I believe now, more than ever, getting active and giving back to our local sporting club communities is paramount,” she told the Moorabool News. “In addition to the training involved in the mentor programs, the mentees will be interviewed and featured on a poster campaign to highlight their success stories, and influence others in sport. All Mentor Groups will be invited to a formal graduation ceremony later in the year to launch this campaign, and share their experiences throughout the program.” Ms Gathercole said the Mentor Programs will go beyond promoting sport participation based on gender alone, but also for other specific groups that may be reluctant to take part in sport. “The Mentor Programs will be individually designed with each mentor and their mentees to determine what they can do as individuals to help empower and encourage women and girls in sport. We will work together to identify any current barriers within local sporting clubs in regards to female participation, or highlight what could be improved,” she said. The Mentor Groups will work towards a collective end goal where everyone feels safe and confident to play, regardless of their age, race, gender or ability. Applications close on Sunday 10 July.

Tigers and Cats showdown By Lachlan Ellis They might be opponents on the football field and netball court, but two community sporting clubs are uniting this month to battle a common enemy – a plan to put overhead power lines through their towns and land. Before the senior football match on Saturday June 25 at Wallace Recreation Reserve, the Springbank and Newlyn Football Netball Clubs are inviting spectators to wear their club colours or ‘Stop AusNet’s Towers’ shirts, and bring Stop AusNet’s Towers banners, signs, and posters, to raise awareness of the power line fight. President of the Springbank Football Netball Club, Jason Carey, said it was important to get more people aware of the ongoing battle. “It’s a pretty significant issue for both communities. We’re trying to raise a few bucks for the legal fight, but for us it’s less about the money and more about raising awareness,” he told the Moorabool News. “I grew up halfway between Gordon and Wallace but now live in Ballarat … but the general public in Ballarat have no idea about this issue. So, we’re hoping to raise a bit more public awareness.” Steve Harper from Stop AusNet’s Towers said the involvement of community groups, like the two sporting clubs, was crucial to continuing the fight. “It’s essential, at the end of the day we have thousands of people supporting the campaign…having particular community groups like sporting teams is fantastic. It just demonstrates how widespread the impact is, that all of these different groups get involved,” Mr Harper said. “The Stop AusNet’s Towers campaign is really grateful that community groups like the Springbank and Newlyn clubs do these things, because it really shows the communities behind this fight “A lot of the players, both football and netball…their families are heavily affected by the proposed power line project. So, the clubs wanted to really get behind raising awareness for the campaign and, raising funds for the legal fight Stop AusNet’s Towers are embarking on.” Following the game, an 18+ hoedown fundraiser will be held at on Saturday 25 June at Donegan’s Farm on Butter Factory Rd, Gordon from 7pm till late, with tickets on sale online. Tickets to the hoedown fundraiser at Donegan’s Farm are available at www.trybooking.com/BZVXY. They cost $40 per person, including two free drinks, finger food and live entertainment, with all proceeds going to Stop AusNet’s Towers’ legal battle.

Two more rescues in Gorge’s VICSES Bacchus Marsh Unit

Alleged home invader stays in remand By Lachlan Ellis A Strathdale man will face a plea hearing more than a year after allegedly committing over 40 offences, which include vehicle theft, unlawful assault, and armed robbery. Kalem George appeared from remand via livestream at the County Court of Victoria on Wednesday 15 June, represented by lawyer Andrew Jackson. In April, the County Court heard that Mr George and a co-accused allegedly took part in a series of home invasions and vehicle thefts on 12 October 2021. That session was adjourned for the 15 June hearing, where Judicial Registrar Rosalind Avis was told more time was needed, with a draft indictment lodged but not yet signed. “There are a number of issues with that draft indictment that need to be discussed

between Mr Jackson and I,” prosecution lawyer for the Director of the Office of Public Prosecutions (OPP), Jordan O’Toole, said. Mr Jackson asked for more time and requested that this matter, and another matter Mr George is facing in the Magistrates’ Court, be combined into one court session. “Just in relation to the plea date, there’s another issue that Mr George has that is going through the system. The hand-up brief for that is due on the 25th of June, what we’re looking for is a plea date at least 10 weeks from today, so that we can look at the prospect of if we can resolve that matter, and they can both be done at the same time,” Mr Jackson said. Judicial Registrar Avis agreed, remanding Mr George in custody until a plea hearing, to be held in the County Court on 20 October.

A long weekend doesn’t mean a holiday for some, especially VICSES volunteers in Bacchus Marsh. The Queen’s Birthday long weekend turned out to be a busy one for the Unit’s volunteers with two rescue call outs, one after the other. A spokesperson posted on their social media site saying that just after 2pm on Monday 13 June, their volunteers were called to Assist Ambulance Victoria locate and extricate a hiker suffering a dislocated shoulder in the Werribee Gorge. “Due to the remote location of this incident Ambulance HEMS aircraft was called in to winch the patient to safety after SES crews managed to get the injured hiker to a clearing,” the post read. SES Rescue, Ambulance Victoria, Police and Parks Victoria all attended. Just as the Bacchus Marsh SES volunteers were heading home, a second call came in to Assist Police with two lost hikers in the Lerderderg Gorge. SES Search and Rescue crews hiked into the Gorge as darkness had set in, locating the missing hikers and escorting them back to the car park via torchlight. “All in all, over 20 of the local volunteers were active responding for the community over that weekend, giving up their time on their public Photo: Bacchus Marsh SES holiday,” the spokesperson said.

Five decades of art By Helen Tatchell

Bacchus Marsh Rotary 2022 Art Show Winners

Bacchus Marsh Rotary Club 2022 Art Show It was their 50th year in presenting local art shows, and whilst COVID provided a few setbacks, 2022 will be remembered as the golden anniversary. A sneak peak and first in line to buy some artwork, was held on the Friday night preceding the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, with a good sized crowd and a fairly long queue to purchase a favourite piece. The Bacchus Marsh Rotary Club held their annual event, in the public hall with Chairperson of the Art Show Keith Currie, saying it was lovely to have crowds back. “This event should have been in 2021,” he said. “This art show is the longest running art show in regional Victoria and, one of the longest running ones in Australia. “After a three year (COVID) hiatus, it has been a joy to watch the artists bring in their artwork.” Mr Currie said money raised from the event goes back into the Rotary Art Show, local projects and one particular international project in Vietnam. A cheque was also presented to the Bacchus Marsh SES for their volunteer efforts in the community, for the art show, putting up and removing all the stands in the hall. “Without the continued support and sponsorship from Council and local businesses, we would not be able to continue and put on this event,” Mr Currie said. “The artists and the artwork; I’m never ceased to be amazed by the incredible talent, which has been reflected in the judge’s comments.” The judge for 2022 was Beckett Rozentals (NGV Curator of Australia Art to 1980), and Peter Kay (sec) read her comments. “The standard here, particularly for a regional art show was very good, I’m amazed with the variety of paintings, and how good some of the small paintings were. Don’t have to have big paintings to be good”, she said. Over $50,000 of artwork as sold at the golden anniversary event.

The Moorabool News – 21 June, 2022 Page 11

Door opens for young writers Over 20 talented young writers have been recognised in the 2022 Moorabool Young Writers Awards competition, with a record number of entries this year. More than 700 young writers entered the competition, with this year’s theme, ‘The Door’, asking Moorabool kids and young adults what could be behind a mysterious door. Awards were given out based on five age groups: Early Years Primary (Prep, G1&2), Middle Primary (G 3&4), Upper Primary (G 5&6), Lower Secondary (Years 7-9) and Upper Secondary (Years 10-12, or under 18). In the Early Years Primary category, the prize winners were Nyah Halfhide, Aydin Wright, Silas Olthof, Eykas Singh Khaira, Loki De Domenico, Jackson Thurgood, Marcus Speakman, and Olivia (no surname provided). The Middle Primary winner was Matilda Marshall with her story ‘Sing’, while Kumayl Rizvi and Meg Conroy the runner-up and third place winner respectively with their

stories, both named ‘The Door’. Noah Barlow was named the winner in the Upper Primary Awards with ‘The rock pigeon gang strikes back’, while Purva Amin was the runner up with ‘Wanderlust’s Door’, and Logan Jarvis came third with ‘Sin of Wrath’. In the Lower Secondary group, Tyler Hounsell-Bachelor won with ‘Something wicked comes this way’, while Blayk Maree

Kawan’s ‘Devin’s Door’ was named the runner-up piece and ‘The Door’ by Alisha Rizvi coming third. Finally, Matthew Michalik was the winner of the Upper Secondary Awards with his story ‘Perfect Stranger’, while Mackenzie Stark was named runner-up with ‘In Another Life’. Three Early Years Primary winners scored a book pack for themselves and their

classroom, with winners and runners-up in the Middle and Upper Primary categories winning $100 and $50 respectively. Tyler Hounsell-Bachelor won $150 and Blayk Maree Kawan received $75. Finally, Matthew Michalik received $200 for winning the Upper Secondary Award, while Mackenzie Stark received $100. All winning stories will also be displayed in the Lerderderg Library.

Only a few have their say By Lachlan Ellis Community submissions on the upcoming Budget, have been accepted by Council. A Special Meeting of Council was called on Wednesday 15 June to accept community submissions on the 2022/23 Annual Budget, which went out to public consultation on 11 May and closed for submissions on 9 June. In total, four submissions were received, two of which related to road maintenance, while the other two opposed a rates increase. The first submission, titled “Reseal Program Budget”, called for “more funding to be set for the annual reseal program…given

the amount of trucks that drive through town to the coal mine and new housing developments”. The second submission, titled “Ballan Roads Maintenance”, requested several roads in Ballan to receive “urgent maintenance and upgrades”, namely Hogans Road, Spencer Road between Berry St and McMahon Rd, Simpson Street between Cowie and Stead Streets, and Old Melbourne Road between Stead St and the beginning of the 100 km/h zone. Finally, the two latter submissions opposed an increase in rates given “the current economic climate” and “cost of living rising

at an extreme rate”, suggesting a “temporary reduction in infrastructure spending, or perhaps placing some non-life-threatening projects on hold”. Councillors voted unanimously to consider the four submissions before the Budget comes before another Special Meeting of Council on Wednesday 22 June. Cr Moira Berry was an apology at the June 15 meeting. The 2021-25 Council Plan (2022 Update) was also put on public exhibition, but no submissions were received by the deadline on 9 June.

Enter and ‘snap’ up grand prizes By Lachlan Ellis Thousands of dollars in prizes are on offer for a local photo competition, and with the deadline coming up at the end of the month, amateur photographers are being urged to get their snaps in quick. The 10th Annual Lal Lal Photographic Competition opened for entries in March, with a grand total prize value of $5,350 across five divisions. The winner of the Grand Youth division (ages 6 to 12) will win the Sarah Peckham Memorial Award and a $1500 Camera House voucher, while the Grand Novice winner (age 13+ and not having practiced photography for more than two years or been in a photo group) will win a $1350 training voucher, thanks to David Bailey Photography and Training. The Grand Open award, open to those who’ve been in a photo group for two years or more, will come with a $1000 Camera House voucher, as will the Grand Mayor’s Choice award. Finally, the People’s Choice award, to be voted on by the public online, will come with a $500 Camera House voucher. Secretary of the Lal Lal Photographic Group, Kristina Kitchingman, encouraged young people in particular, to get their photos in. “Normally the Lal Lal Primary School students

put entries in through the school, and we’re very well supported through the school. But because we haven’t had that in-person contact and this year’s competition is online, we haven’t got as many youth entries,” she told the Moorabool News. “At the moment there’s a big push to get more youth involved. The reason we’re offering vouchers is because we didn’t like the idea of giving money directly to children. Youth are our up-and-coming photographers of the future…to encourage them to get out with a camera and learn how it works is so important.” Entries can fall under eight different categories: Portrait/People, Landscape/Seascape, Macro 1:1, Flora, Fauna, Pictorial, Black & White, and Architecture. A winner will be chosen by the judges from each category in each of the three divisions, for a total of 24 winners. From those 24, the Grand Prize winners will be chosen. Photos must have a resolution of at least 3032 x 2008, with no phone photos or previous entries allowed to be entered. Up to five entries can be submitted per person, with a $5 entry cost per photo, and a $5 admin fee. For more information and how to enter, head to www.lallalmooraboolphotographicgroup.org/ competitions.

News Drinking driver not up to date on law

Email - news@themooraboolnews.com.au

By Lachlan Ellis A man caught by police driving with an open beer bottle in hand has admitted to the offence, but asked the court why he was never informed it was illegal. Glen Herring appeared at the Bacchus Marsh Magistrates Court on Friday 10 June, after he received a $363 fine for driving a vehicle with an open container of alcohol, which he said he was unaware was a crime. Police Prosecutor Leading Senior Constable Clare Kane said Mr Herring cooperated with police after being pulled over. “It was Tuesday the 2nd of November 2021 and 4:40 pm. The accused was observed driving a motor vehicle west on the Western Freeway in Bacchus Marsh. He was holding a bottle of Great Northern beer and taking a sip whilst driving, and was intercepted,” LSC Kane said.

“He admitted to consuming beer while driving, stating ‘I’ve been doing it for 100 years, it stops you speeding, you’re courteous, no road rage, you let people into your lane.’ The accused had a good demeanour and was cooperative with police.” Mr Herring joked that he “obviously hasn’t been driving for 100 years”. “I didn’t realise I was breaking the law. Obviously, I’ve had my licence for a long time, and this law’s been brought in somewhere along the line. I was unaware of it, I thought I was

being pulled over for a licence check,” Mr Herring said. “The bottle actually had been empty for a while, I drank about half while on the road, I’m not denying that. I’m virtually a non-drinker … I did ask what my BAC was, I wasn’t told but I’m pretty sure it was 0.00.” Mr Herring asked why he was unaware of the law and had never been notified about it as a licence holder, to which Magistrate Michael McNamara replied, “we don’t get letters from the government when a law changes, we’re expected to know and understand them”. The original $363 fine was struck out, with Mr Herring put on a 12-month good behaviour bond and ordered to pay $100 to the court fund. “If you misbehave during that time, you’ll be back here on this charge, and anything else you do,” Magistrate McNamara said.

Letters to the Editor W R I T ING LET T ER S TO T H E EDI TOR Each letter must be accompanied with the writer’s full name, address and phone number (name and suburb for publication only) and be limited to 300 words. Letters to be received via post or email (preferred option). The Editor has the right to limit the amount of words in each letter received and published letters are at the discretion of the Editor. Send your letters to news@themooraboolnews.com.au Dear Editor, I’d like to correct the misinformation that has been circulating in relation to the Government’s Agriculture Legislation Amendment Bill 2022, which was passed by the Victorian Parliament recently with bipartisan support. The amendments will not result in the destruction of crops, nor will they prevent people growing or hunting their own food - any suggestion to the contrary is false and misrepresents changes in the bill. In fact, the bill will help safeguard food security, food safety and access to export markets which are vital for Victoria’s economy. The changes are designed to support our vital agricultural sector which is worth $17.8 billion to the state's economy each year and supports more than 67,000 jobs. It is extremely disappointing that Northern Victoria MP Tim Quilty is needlessly causing confusion over the legislation with claims that it will prevent hunters from sharing meat harvested from game animals. This is completely incorrect. The Agriculture Legislation Amendment Bill makes no changes to the way recreational hunters can use game meat. Under the Meat Industry Act, a recreational hunter can harvest game and either process it themselves or use an unlicensed service provider, such as a mobile butcher service, to process the carcass for them. This is to allow hunters to consume their recreationally harvested game. It is already an offence under the Meat Industry Act for hunters to sell or distribute recreationally harvested game. Our Government has a strong record of backing hunters and delivering more flexibility in the harvesting of game meats. Under the Sustainable Hunting Action Plan we removed regulatory barriers so farmers could dispose of problem deer and they could be processed for human and pet consumption. Changes were also made to enable recreational hunters to have wild deer processed for their personal consumption by specific unlicensed providers. The plan supports licenced game hunters to increase the popularity of hunting, improve animal welfare, undertake research and increase the role of Traditional Owners in managing the land where hunting takes place. We are focused on delivering laws that will support our farmers and hunters while safeguarding our food. Peddling lies and conspiracy theories only serves to scare and confuse the communities that some politicians purport to represent. Mary-Anne Thomas Minister for Agriculture and Regional Development Dear Editor, Remove trees where needed On TV, 9 June 2022, many examples of trees blown down in the Dandenongs one year ago, were shown. I was shocked to see ruined and mould-ridden homes, and businesses struggling to survive because of the damage and resulting in

lack of tourism. I wondered why VicForests had sent workers deep into the Wombat State Forest (near Daylesford) before Easter this year, rather than send their workers to help clear the hundreds of fallen trees in the Dandenongs. The tree clearing in the Wombat State Forest was remote - no threat to people or businesses - and comprised some acres of land deep within the forest, clear-felled and bulldozed right down to bare earth. Far from being a salvage site, there were dozens of beautiful mature felled tree trunks which were obviously meant for commercial use, piled up ready to take away. In addition to tree felling, awful damage was done to the understorey in the forest, with native flowers, fungus and plants completely removed, interrupting the natural decomposing of vegetation which shelters and provides food for dozens of birds, small animals and insects, vital for the whole cycle of forest life. Victoria should protect its threatened species and keep its forests and legislate for the promised new national park. Tree salvaging and care should more properly fix the problems where they are desperately needed, as exists right now in the Dandenong Ranges. Mara Hayler Darley Dear Editor, I write with a message to ‘Stop the Bullets’, in relation to the shooting of brumbies in the high country of Victoria. Gunmen are poised with their rifles raised. They have silencers, night vision and thermal imaging. The bullets fly and there are cries of pain and fright. Dogs are despatched to hunt the wounded horses The remains are scattered as carrion for wild pigs, feral dogs and foxes. Sounds like a scene out of a horror movie? Reality is, this is the horror story written by the Andrews Labor Government and Parks Victoria for Victorian Brumbies. Whichever side of the fence you stand on the Brumby debate, surely we can agree that this plan is barbaric. This is inhumane. This is beyond cruel. Re-homing of Victorian Brumbies was the preferred and accepted option of controlling numbers in our National Parks but, has been dismissed as too expensive by Daniel Andrews. Shooting is cheaper and quicker apparently. Some Brumby bloodlines can be traced back to our famous Light horse regiments in World War I. We cannot wait for the November state election for the people to decide the fate of our Victorian Brumbies. We must stop the bullets now. Please sign and support the Animal Justice Party petition to Stop the Bullets. Donna Bridgeman Eppalock

Bacchus Marsh Little Athletics

After a cool start to the day, the sun gleamed over the Avenue Market Gardens, and without a breath of wind, made for perfect conditions for distance racing at Rupert Vance Moon Reserve, Bacchus Marsh. Athletes took advantage of the flat courses with 24 Personal Best results recorded for the meet. First up this week were the Under 9 & 10 athletes, racing over 1.5 kms. Athletes ran out 750m before turning and heading back along the gravel path to the finish line. Coming off strong performances at the recent State Cross Country Relays and Schools Cross Country Region Championships, Zeke Horne (BM) produced his best run this season claiming the win in a PB time of 6:15mins. Iyla Robinson (BM), also having a remarkable season, with top results at the State Relays and Schools Championships ran a big PB to cross the line in 2nd place, 1st girl. Iyla continues to improve each week and will be looking to continue her progress after qualifying to represent her School at the School Sports Victoria State Championships in mid July. Angus Norman and Anni Clarke also recorded PB results over the 1.5kms. Next on the start line were the Under 6 athletes. A small field of keen and enthusiastic runners were quick off the start. It wasn’t long before Melton’s Mckinley Wilson took control of the race, setting the pace. Mckinley notched up another victory crossing the finish line in a time of 2:27mins ahead of Bacchus Marsh’s Bowie Clarke in 2:37 mins with Hayden Tung (BM) running a PB to take out 3rd place in a time of

2:40mins. Annabelle Menzies (BM) continues to improve recording another PB this week. The Open age athletes competed over a 3km distance. A good turnout of senior athletes this week saw a great competition between all runners. With limited races under his belt due to BFL umpiring commitments, Bacchus Marsh’s Sam White showed he has maintained his fitness over the longer distances, claiming line honours in a time of 12:47mins. Elise Cook (BM) was next home closely followed by Oliver Carr (BM) in 3rd place. Mackenzie Estlick (BM), Emma Stewart (BM) and Melton’s Allyson Currall all recorded PBs. In the combined Under 11/12 2km event, it was pleasing to see the return to Cross Country running of Gisborne’s Elijah Marshall. Elijah produced a dominating performance, almost 30 seconds ahead of the field, stopping the clock at 8:03mins. Six athletes produced PB results in this event with Lachlan Simons (BM), Myah Estlick (BM), Austin Shea (BM), Chord Wilson (Melton), Louisa Christians (Melton) and Alexis Karmiste (Melton) all taking advantage of the fast pace set by Elijah. The final race for the meet saw the Under 7 & 8 athletes competing over 1km. Melton’s Harry Wark got off to a flying start, as he led the field out through the garden gates before turning around at the halfway mark. A welcome return to form saw Harry maintain the lead and bring the field home in a winning performance of 4:17mins ahead of teammate Fletcher Reid (Melton) and Bacchus Marsh’s Emilia Ibrahim – all recording PBs. Ivy Wooding (BM) and Olivia Callister (Gisborne) also ran PB races for the 1km. This Saturday - Caledonian Park, Ballan.

Dunnstown Netball By Karen Cahir Results v Bungaree After a few weeks of bleak weather, it was lovely to see the sun shining as Dunnstown took on Bungaree at home. U17, B Grade & A Grade were all tight contests. Unfortunately, we were unable to get across the line and Bungaree got the points in all three grades. Well done to the U13A girls who were the only Dunnstown winners for the day. Next week – away game against Carngham/Linton. 13 & Under B: Dunnstown 0 lost Bungaree 30 Awards - Isla Bergman, Milla Flanagan & Charlotte Morris

Bacchus Marsh Tigers Baseball Club Results - Round 8

Bacchus Marsh Tigers 11 lost Corio Tigers 12 A tight game early on with both teams coming out swinging scoring 3 each in the first inning. It was Corio who were able to get out to a handy lead on the back of a few Bacchus Marsh errors and plays that didn’t go our way. A big effort in the last innings saw the game go down to the final play with Jared Warwick hitting the homerun fence on the full which could have won the game for the home side. It wasn’t to be, and Corio won 12-11. Three hits each to Thomas Shaw and Jared Warwick. Three walks to Chloe Warwick.

Kangas down Devils on the hop By Todd Whelan Darley v East Point A match winning nine goal haul from Kangas star forward Jordy Johnston and the onset of fatigue late off a 21 day break, has proven the catalyst behind the Devils 33 point loss at Eastern Oval at the weekend. When the Devils kicked 17 points clear midway through the third term a ‘sniff’ of an upset was on the cards before the reigning dual Premiers went into overdrive booting 10 of the last 12 goals of the game to win - going away. While there was obvious disappointment within the Devils camp, coach Dan Jordan opted for the glass half full approach in the aftermath. “We gave a spirited effort against a quality side,” he said. “There are great learnings to draw on playing four quarters of football for our young side. We were in it for a long way,” Jordan said. Young Devils defender Mace Cousins thrived against the strength of a more seasoned East Point outfit providing plenty of drive, his vision, decision making significant setting up a Devils half-time lead. The wide expanses of Eastern Oval added further weight to the returns and importance of the wingmen. Both Jack Bewley and dual Club Best and Fairest and former Captain Shane Page, were busy while Essendon VFL affiliate Dylan Landt was clearly the Devils best midfielder. Devils forward Nick Rodda was going goal for goal with Johnston at the other end before limited supply capped his contribution albeit vote worthy, to five goals. It was the Devils second successive loss, both against finals contenders Ballarat and East Point. The inaccurate returns in front of goal 9.18 and 9.12 tell another story of opportunity missed against quality opposition. Given the evenness of the BFNL (Melton excluded) this season, such waste on the goal front simply won’t do. The Devils lost enigmatic small forward Leigh Spiteri (hamstring) and Bailey Young (knee) early in the first half that surely played its own part in the wash-up despite Young returning in the second half below 100 per cent. Jake Ancrum was sound in defence playing a role on the rotating Kangas mids that have hit the scoreboard over recent weeks in support of go-to-man Johnston. If only the Devils could find a similar solution forward outside of Rodda (30 goals / 91). Andy Azzopardi is the Devils second leading goalkicker this year with eight. We’re nine rounds in.

The Devils cling to sixth place on the BFNL ladder, just percentage ahead of eighth. Jordan has put the Devils faithful on notice ahead of their must win game against bottom side Lake Wendouree this Saturday. “There are no easy games in this comp,” he said. “We can’t afford to be 5 per cent off if we want to get it done.” * Saturday Darley vs Lake Wendouree - LIVE RADIO APPLE 98.5FM - FROM 2pm or STREAM via apple985fm.com.au WHAT THE COACHES SAID Where was the game was won and lost? JORDAN (Darley) - Jordy Johnston’s nine goals was the difference, but we’ll be better for the run. They’re a quality side we knew they were always going to come at us in the second half. Rate your ‘forwards’ performance JORDAN - Nick Rodda was really good, often two on one. Would have been nice to get more ‘bang for buck’ for our dominance in the first half. Rate your ‘midfielders’ performance JORDAN - Got beat but Dylan Landt, and our wingers Jack Bewley and Shane Page were solid contributors. We know where we have to improve in this area. Rate your ‘defenders’ performance JORDAN - Tried hard, obviously we struggled to contain Jordy Johnston all day. Mace Cousins was arguably our best player, he gave us some good rebound. Overall performance BRIDGES (East Point) - Plenty of evidence of living our trademarks today. Great team effort and response from the group. FINAL SCORES East Point 3.0-18, 5.3-33, 10.5-65, 15.9-99 def Darley 4.4-28, 5.838, 8.10-58, 9.12-66. (Whelan’s Best): Darley - M. Cousins, N. Rodda, D. Landt, S. Page, J. Bewley, J. Ancrum.

Cobras deliver for MND, and fans By Todd Whelan The Cobras are knocking on the door of the top six following their comprehensive 51-point win over a disappointing Sunbury in Saturday’s (11 June) stand alone, Queen’s Birthday BFL match at Maddingley Park. A large crowd made the trip in support of the MND cause to witness the pre-game ‘slide’ fundraiser, led by former Footscray Bulldog champion and local favorite Doug Hawkins. The Cobra crew do a fantastic job in the football community raising money and awareness fighting ‘the beast’, earmarking the Queen’s Birthday weekend as their own on the BFNL calendar. National TV Networks covered the event on their News platforms, obliging to the reach and request of local organisers. Onfield, the Cobras put this game to bed early with six unanswered goals in the second quarter to set up a matchwinning 47-point lead. For the record, their 10.4-64 scoreline at the main break was their best return (of any half) this season. And they did it all (on the scoreboard) without inspirational Captain Jake Owen, who has found himself in defence over the last two games in the absence of Jack Williams and Jason Robinson, who remain sidelined with injury. Owen was still considered BOG by many in his rebounding role with double figure marks, proving the catalyst in transition, while denying the visitors any impact on the scoreboard. Cobras ruckman Daniel Burton (2 goals) was back to his Henderson Medal winning form dominating at hit-outs, and around the ground. Forwards Aaron Willetts and youngster Joel Freeman were rewarded for playing in front, making the most of their opportunities to finish with four goals. Cobra midfielders Harry King, Tom German, Max Eastmure and Jack Parente looked energised in their response to club legend Tyson Shea’s 250th game. Shea too was typically in and under, adrenaline still riding high having run through (carefully) a dedicated banner with his two children ahead of the opening bounce. According to Cobras coach Tom German this week off is timely, following a tough block of matches and injury. “The week off will be good for us,” he said.

“We’re likely to get Jack Williams (shoulder) and Jason Robinson (hamstring) back for the Sebastopol game and there’s a fair chance we might have Nick Stuhldrier (calf). “Either way, I’ll be confident with our chances (on Saturday’s effort).” German said. For Sunbury, they look a world away from what their ability suggests on paper but the future looks bright with more games into Cody Bramble, Jake Egan, Jack Newitt, Lachie Urbon and Mitch McLean. Ball magnet and Lions Captain Daniel Toman missed a second successive game which didn’t help the visitors cause but Harrison Minton-Connell, stood up in his absence to be their best player. The Lions’ struggles continue forward with just the six goals, and all singles despite the inclusion of Essendon VFL listed targets Jake Sutton and Cooper Anderson. In closing, it was clearly the Cobras best team effort of the year with notable contributions from near all 22 players. For Sunbury however, it may well have been their worst. The Cobras next match is a Round 10 meeting on June 25 with Sebastopol at Marty Busch Reserve. WHAT THE COACHES SAID Where was the game won and lost? GERMAN (B/Marsh) - Our pressure around the ball was very good. HODGSON (SUNBURY) - Burton, Owen and the three answers below. Rate your ‘forwards’ performance GERMAN - It was our forwards best game, they were clean, got separation and kicked straight. HODGSON - Struggled to cope with Owen’s presence but not helped by poor ball use going in. Rate your ‘midfielders’ performance GERMAN - We got on top in the clearances as the game went on. Burton was exceptional, back to his best. HODGSON - Burton’s dominance made it hard, and we were outworked and outplayed. Rate your ‘defenders’ performance GERMAN - Rock solid. Owen’s rebound was important, he cut off a lot of their forward entries.

HODGSON - Poor, we were convincingly beaten by the Marsh forwards. FINAL SCORES: Bacchus Marsh - 4.2-26, 10.4-64, 14.6-90, 15.8-98 def Sunbury - 2.5-17, 2.5-17, 4.7-31, 6.11-47. BEST: B/Marsh - J. Owen, D. Burton, H. King, J. Parente, M. Eastmure, T. German. GOALS: B/Marsh - A. Willitts 4, J. Freeman, J. Calvitto 2, D. Burton, T. Huyn 1, J. Parente, E. McKercher.

Friendship is the theme of the week as oldtimers return and new relationships are forged. Watch a tendency to overextend yourself. You may be promising more than you want to deliver.

PISCES—February 20-March 20 Loose ends are tied up quickly, then it’s on to a new challenge. People from abroad enter the scene. Be certain that colleagues understand your expectations. BIRTHDAY THIS WEEK You are a born romantic and a natural leader and you thrive in the limelight. This year sees you sharing centre stage and benefiting as a result. Spontaneity is important as you enter a key romantic cycle. In money matters, watch a tendency to take unnecessary risks.
