Show us the money, Premier BY ANGELA VALENTE TWO sports centres could be built in the Macedon Ranges south ward if the council gives the green light to the proposal at its next meeting. Planning has started for a two-court indoor stadium to be built on Education Department land at or next to Gisborne Secondary College. It will become a home for Gisborne Bulldogs Basketball Club. The council will consider giving $1.5 million for the Gisborne stadium, which residents can access through a ‘joint-use’ agreement with the Education Department. Netball courts previously included in the college stadium project are now proposed for New Gisborne, on land owned by the council. It is proposing to allocate $800,000 for stage one of the project.

Council chief executive Peter Johnston says the extent of the first stage of the netball project will depend on funding but could include a change room, toilets, kiosk, first-aid facilities and two courts. The complex would be an ‘outdoor venue’ initially, with an allowance in the master plan for indoor courts to be developed later. ‘‘Netballer numbers are growing and a separate site will provide more opportunity for future expansion and access to car parking without encroaching on open space at the school site,’’ Mr Johnston said. Gisborne Netball Association president Carmen Hemphill said the association membership had grown by more than 100 girls in the past three years. ‘‘We’re thrilled with the proposal; it means we get a home,’’ Hemphill said. ‘‘If the stadium gets to be built at the school it’s fantastic. If we

get two courts in New Gisborne that’s great; it means we can plan for more courts down the track. It means we get to grow.’’ Gisborne netball and basketball clubs, council and state government representatives met on August 10 to determine a way forward for the Gisborne indoor stadium project, which had stalled for several months. In April, the council called on the government to keep its promise to provide a funding injection of $3.5 million for the Gisborne stadium. It was guaranteed by the Coalition in November 2010 before its election. At the time, both Liberal and Labor parties committed to a multimillion-dollar revamp of Gisborne Secondary College, including the building of a state-of-the-art sports centre. The council will consider the proposals at its meeting at the Romsey Hub at 7pm on August 29.

INBRIEF Department seeks fireys The Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) and Parks Victoria need firefighters for the fire season ahead. About 600 jobs are available and people have until September 2 to apply. Environment Minister Ryan Smith said people who were fit, healthy, held a valid driver’s licence and were keen to help protect communities from bushfires should apply. Recruits will be trained by DSE and Parks Victoria staff. Details: dse.vic.gov.au/firejobs

Labor backs Mitchell for poll Rob Mitchell has been re-endorsed as the Labor candidate for McEwen for next year’s federal election. Mr Mitchell received unanimous support of the Labor Party as its candidate for the third successive election. Main towns in the McEwen electorate are Lancefield, Gisborne, Riddells Creek, Romsey, Craigieburn, Sunbury, Broadford, Doreen, Kilmore, Seymour, Wallan and Whittlesea.

Fire brigades funded Fire brigades and volunteer groups in Kyneton, Malmsbury, Romsey and Woodend have received grants from the state government for equipment, vehicles and amenities upgrades. The Malmsbury fire brigade got $130,333, while the Romsey and Kyneton brigades were given $55,000 and $2067 respectively. Woodend SES was awarded $25,819, while $1500 was given to the Woodend division of St John’s Ambulance Australia.

$9m injected into service Kyneton District Health Service will receive $9.029 million funding from the state government for the 2012-13 financial year, Health Minister David Davis announced last week. The funding has increased by $346,000, or 4 per cent, on the allocation for 2011-12.

BY ANGELA VALENTE KYNETON’S Frank and Betty Jenner are king and queen of their community. They’ve been crowned this year’s royals for the Kyneton Daffodil and Arts Festival, which kicks off on Thursday, August 30. The couple will act as ambassadors for the festival, which this year celebrates ‘40 bloomin’ years’. They will be helped by ‘princes’ Max McLeish and Josh Smith and ‘princesses’ Lilly Nolte and Mackenzie Cameron. Festival secretary Marg Dearricott says the Jenners have an active community life, with a love of dancing and music, and have taken on many voluntary tasks to enrich the lives of people around them. Both have been active in Probus, St Paul’s parish, Kyneton Farmers’ Market, and entertaining at aged care and senior citizens clubs for which Mr Jenner plays the saxophone. He was a member of the Kyneton Rhythm Kings and Old Time Dance band. Mrs Jenner has organised the ‘festival of flowers’ at previous daffodil and arts festivals and is a volunteer collector for Vision Australia. The 11-day festival will feature more than 60

events that showcase the Kyneton township to residents and tourists. It will include an antique fair, open gardens, performing and visual arts, one-act plays, ferret racing and scarecrow competitions.

The celebrations finish with a grand parade and fair on Sunday, September 9. Details: kynetondaffodilarts.org.au

This Titanic is already full of holes A THREE-metre model Titanic built from Meccano will attract plenty of attention at the 16th annual antique fair at the Kyneton Town Hall next week. Fair co-ordinator Fran Wigley says the display is part of the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the famous ocean liner. ‘‘At over three metres long, it’s believed to be the largest nautical model built entirely of Meccano anywhere in the world,’’ she said. ‘‘I’ve seen it only once and it’s an authentic replica. We’re so grateful to

have this display.’’ Ms Wigley said more than 30 dealers from Victoria and interstate would have stalls at the fair. Collections will range from vintage clothing, dolls, jewellery, fine china, coins, glass and silverware, artworks and etchings, kerosene lamps and clocks to small pieces of furniture. ‘‘The fair brings people from all states and and many will have been here before,’’ Ms Wigley said. The event won the ‘excellence in tourism’ title in the 2010 Macedon Ranges Business Awards. It is hosted

Lack of votes sinks pool expansion plan BY ANGELA VALENTE THE Gisborne Aquatic Centre expansion will not go ahead under the current council. Councillors were called to a meeting in Gisborne at 7pm last Wednesday by south ward representatives Rob Guthrie, John Letchford and Helen Relph. The meeting was to vote on lodging a funding application with the state government to expand the pool. The expansion cost is estimated at $7.85 million. About 50 residents filled the gallery to watch the meeting unfold. Cr Guthrie declared a conflict of interest, due

‘My personal opinion is that the council has considered this item already. It makes decisions on a monthly basis and it doesn’t have the time or resources to consider items three times.’ — Henry McLaughlin to a ‘‘close association’’, and was absent. But he was present when the council previously debated the proposal. Councillors Roger Jukes and Neil Manning could not attend. The meeting became a non-event when the proposal was withdrawn and it ended at 7.03pm. Mayor Henry McLaughlin said a motion was

not lodged with the council because there were not enough votes to support it. ‘‘My personal opinion is that the council has considered this item already. ‘‘It makes decisions on a monthly basis and it doesn’t have the time or resources to consider items three times. We need to make one decision and move on.’’

Before last week’s meeting, the proposal to apply for $3 million funding from the government was twice refused by the council. If the proposal had been supported with the council successful in its application, the council would have needed to fork out the rest of the money needed for the centre expansion. Council elections are scheduled for October. The Gisborne pool was closed for two weeks last month for maintenance work on the heating system. The council will close the pool again next month to install a new gas system to heat it to required temperatures.

EACH item in the Riddells Creek toy library would have its own story. The toy library this year celebrates 25 years since being launched by a group of local parents as a way to get together and keep their children entertained. It has been thriving in a small shed beside the Montessori Kindergarten in Main Road, Riddells Creek, since 1987. More than 200 toys are available to borrow, from ride-ons to puzzles, train sets and Transformers, for children up to the age of eight. Library president Suzanne Zahra says while there are always new toy ‘‘crazes’’ like Zhu Zhu Pets or Beyblade, some of the favourites from the ’80s are still around. ‘‘Kids still love Lego, Transformers and Mr Potato Head,’’ she said. ‘‘It’s great to be able to keep them entertained with an old-fashioned toy like a puzzle or Lego, instead of television, Wii (digital console) or the internet.’’ Ms Zahra says the toy library, which has 10

Calder Cannons region manager Ian Kyte said he thought Lever could play in the TAC Cup next year. ‘‘He’s pretty driven and has applied himself really well and has great leadership skills. He works hard and has shown real maturity. ‘‘Over the summer he will train with the boys and play in practice matches. I think he has the skills to play next year.’’ Lever, a Kyneton Secondary College student, says he’s now focusing on playing with Romsey, having played the past five games in the seniors. ‘‘It’s been a good experience and a real challenge,’’ he says.

JAKE Lever seems on track for the AFL. The Romsey footballer has been selected to join the AIS-AFL Academy. The academy, which offers 12-month scholarships to 30 players, is considered a key step in a young footballer’s career, with potential to be drafted to the AFL. AFL stars Chris Judd, Joel Selwood, Daniel Kerr and Lance Franklin all attended the academy. Lever, 16, who plays with Calder Cannons, was selected following his performance for the Vic Metro under-16 team in the national championships in Sydney in July. ‘‘It was a surprise at first, but I’m definitely looking forward to it,’’ he said. ‘‘I must have done alright in the championship to get picked. At this point I’m not sure of what it includes, but it will help me become a better footballer and a better person.’’ The academy selection also ensures he’ll be part of the Calder Cannons under-18 TAC training squad next year. ‘‘I hope I can play in the side next year. It will be a hard pre-season but I’m looking forward to it.’’

School’s persistence brings sound success BY ANGELA VALENTE THE grounds of Newham Primary School are alive with the sound of music. The school has officially opened its new music room, the ‘‘result of determination and persistence’’, principal Carolyn Robb says. Ms Robb, who is also the music teacher, says the music room is a community project. ‘‘This project was a very special collaboration involving the school community and other community groups near and far, along with years dedicated to seeking funds to make it all happen,’’ she said. In 2006, the state government announced that a new school would be built to replace old portables with permanent buildings. ‘‘Although this was very exciting, we were aware we would lose all of our old portables, which included music, art and library rooms,’’ Ms

Robb said. Parents, teachers and the local community banded together to raise funds and lobby the government for a grant to build a new room. But it wasn’t until 2009 that the school had enough money from grants and fund-raising so that planning for the music room could start. ‘‘We had $70,000 from state and federal governments and more than $13,000 raised from the school and the Newham community, including garden club, Landcare, the sale of bricks and the Northern Combine Cycling Club,’’ Ms Robb said. A year later, in 2010, plans were drawn up and tenders called for building construction. Although the building is complete, the school is yet to finish landscaping and plumbing works. ‘‘We’re all very excited. It’s a lovely haven for me and the children to make as much noise as we like,’’ Ms Robb said. ‘‘We’re creating a lot of good music.’’

t can be a glamorous life fronting a showband, but this is not one of those days. The band’s equipment truck, emptied of trunks of brass instruments and sound gear, doubles as a hasty change room for Elise Beattie as she transforms from “worker ant” roadie to lead singer in a shopping mall in Melbourne’s east. Long loose hair is secured in a no-nonsense plait, and casual clothing discarded for navy trousers, sensible flat black shoes and a crisp light-blue shirt with an epaulette and stripe on each shoulder. Only the showbiz shades remain from her civilian guise as Beattie prepares to front the Victoria Police Showband with co-senior constable Daina Jowsey under the midday sun for the mostly unsuspecting shoppers and commuters. Music director (and prominent Melbourne musician) Daryl McKenzie is absent, so Beattie and Jowsey consult over a whiteboard song list and a takeaway coffee while fellow band members set up 500 leads and an array of instruments for the gig. They choose songs from hundreds of the band’s own arrangements, mixing swing with jazz, classical, musical theatre, rock and pop. Beattie is down for Adele’s Rolling in the Deep, Jowsey is opening with Dancing in the Street. Together they will close with what Beattie says is a crowd favourite, The Flower Duet, a soaring soprano aria from French opera Lakmé. It is one of the tracks they performed for the Showband’s Divas CD, sales of which aid the police force’s Blue Ribbon Foundation community program. There are a few curious glances from passers-by as Beattie completes her assigned chores and sets up the microphones. But once

she emerges from the back of the truck an audience begins to gather and several shoppers question the diminutive but authoritative figure at the microphone stand. “As soon as you are in uniform there’s a certain level of interest; people come up and ask what you are doing,” Beattie says. “We explain to them that what we are doing is a full-time job.” It has been a full-time occupation since the 1980s, when professional musicians were first sworn in as police members. When the police band originated 120 years ago it was formed by those on the beat who volunteered to play an instrument part-time. In the 1980s, Beattie was singing Grizabella’s Memory from the musical Cats on Box Hill school Our Lady of Sion College’s stage, dressed in a black leotard with a newspaperstuffed tail. “It’s not like it was here when I was at school (in Box Hill),” Beattie says. “It’s a bit different now; there is a big drug problem and a lot of youth unemployment. “In the break, people talk about bad experiences they have had living around here, and their experiences with police. You get comments like, ‘I usually hate coppers but youse are all right’. “A lot of what we do is PR, and the music reaches people and you see smiles on their faces. Our primary role is to perform for graduations and police functions, but otherwise we perform at anything communitybased that benefits the community.” The Showband plays across Melbourne and regional Victoria, and its members come from all suburbs across Melbourne, from Eltham to Sandringham. Gig locations this year have included the city’s Federation Square, Nunawading, Ashburton, St Kilda, Williamstown, Frankston, Emerald Lake, Geelong, Swan Hill and Castlemaine. There

“You get comments like, ‘I usually hate coppers but youse are all right’.” – Elise Beattie

Police Showband fan Robert dances to the groove. Daina Jowsey.

The youth that the showband is reaching out to largely respond to the offer of musical friendship, with most unplugging at least one earphone to catch a Lady Gaga or Beyoncé song. An older fan, Robert Fraser, 59, dances through all three sets, oblivious to the fact he is mostly dancing solo on the pavement. A middle-aged woman kicks off her heels, dumps her handbag under the watchful gaze of the band’s brass section and joins him for a track. Towards the end of the last set a trio of teens lose their inhibitions and let their lanky limbs loose. Fraser is a regular at showband gigs, says Hudson. Fans can find performance dates on the police website, which also lists gigs for the other two police bands, Code One and a Victoria Police Pipe Band, which brings bagpipes and drums to many Melbourne parades. Collectively, the three bands perform about 500 gigs annually, and Hudson says these reach about 650,000 Victorians a year. “One of the things the band does is to go find people who can’t come to us,” he says. “Often it’s in an unstable environment not particularly conducive to bands.” In times of hardship and disaster, the Showband is dispatched to communities where an uplifting tune can bring some cheer or relief in tough times.

“When there were floods in country Victoria a year ago we had a week tour in those regions, and we based ourselves in Horsham. We were bussed out to country towns I had never heard of where all 50 people in the town came to see us. When we do a show for them it’s the only thing that has made them smile in a long time.” Beattie says the performances are not all about the music, as she spends a lot of time talking to locals. Hudson says: “That’s experiential contact. The audience doesn’t just see a copper in a uniform, they see Elise sing and talk to them and take a positive experience from it.” Beattie says: “Post-9/11 there was a big community memorial service at the tennis centre. Lots of American expats and government officials were there. I sang the Australian anthem and Daina sang the American anthem. It was one of the hardest things I have had to do; there was not a dry eye in the place. “After events like that you go home and have a cry. At those emotional gigs, that’s when your professional experience comes flooding back because you have got to concentrate on getting the job done.” In addition to Cats, Beattie took lead roles in her school’s Gilbert and Sullivan productions before studying voice at Melba Conservatorium and primary teaching in

music at Victoria College. She gained professional experience with Dame Joan Sutherland in Othello for the Australian Opera (now Opera Australia) and with the Wiggles in front of a crowd of 80,000. “I still have singing lessons because it is important that our music is as high a standard as it can be,” Beattie says. “Being with the band involves a regimented lifestyle, especially for the singers to stay fit and healthy. In a 10-day fortnight we get four days off, and those 10 days can be at any time. We spend many hours travelling … being on tour with the band on the bus is like being in a sitcom. There are some incredibly funny personalities.”

are school performances, too, and the public can check the police website for the showband’s calendar for a performance in their neighbourhood. More glitzy gigs include charity nights, when Beattie frocks up out of uniform to perform at venues that have included Crown’s Palladium room, Hamer Hall and Melbourne’s World Congress Centre. Beattie, 46, has been on patrol with the showband around Victoria for the past 11 years and previously she sang with the Victoria Police’s rock band, Code One, for six years. Her role in the police force was recognised with a national award for “rockin’ it” in January. She wears the stripe of a senior constable, “and we have full police powers of arrest”, she says. But, as with the rest of the 24 showband members, Beattie says she is not operational as a police officer. Band leader Sergeant Pat Hudson, who has in the past been in the back-row line-up on trombone, watches from beyond the policetaped stage edge as the party gets started. Music spills into the mall and an audience builds. Most of the smoking section – a halfbrick wall outside the supermarket – is full. Hudson says that at the height of the set about 200 people are toe-tapping to the tunes.

Joys of a Pommy pub far from home ormer UK resident Peter Stephenson feels right at home as new owner of The Gamekeepers Secret Inn, an English-style country pub in Rockbank. He says it has many similarities to a country pub in his home country. ‘‘With its polished timber bar, crackling fire, country artefacts and cosy booths, the inn really is a slice of old England,’’ Mr Stephenson says. ‘‘Even the food has the feel of country comfort. They say an Englishman’s home is his castle and my team and I certainly soak up the ‘homey’ atmosphere — as do our visitors.’’ Mr Stephenson arrived from Liverpool about 25 years ago, met and married an Aussie girl and got loads of hospitality experience under his belt. His impressive credentials include managing the Essendon Football Club social club, Moonee Valley Racing Club gaming complex and the 400-seat Campari Restaurant on Station Pier, and he was hospitality operations manager for the Western Bulldogs. In his few months at the helm, Mr Stephenson has seen no need to reinvent the wheel, saying the inn is still in the business of delivering top-notch affordable pub grub and an enviable entertain-

ment line-up. The menu focuses on old favourites, with slow oven-roasted lamb shanks with fluffy mash, house-cooked corned beef with creamy seeded mustard sauce, and a beef and Guinness pie rubbing shoulders with bacon mash.

Top-quality steaks done to a turn, tapas share plates and a good seafood selection spice up the table while comforting cakes and desserts, including more-English-than-the-Queen Devonshire teas, make for a sweet finish, with coffee.

Early Bids can Preempt the Auction A high proportion of properties up for auction actually never make it to auction day. This is because the auction campaign itself can attract a lot of attention and canny buyers can make an offer before the actual Auction Day. If you believe that the vendor might accept a bid before auction and calculate that you might be better off with a pre-auction bid as opposed to going to the actual auction itself, then you can submit an offer any time before the day of the auction. Industry statistics show that one out of every six houses put up for auction actually sell before the auction begins. So it doesn’t hurt to submit a bid beforehand. Even if your bid fails, it may still be to your advantage. If your offer succeeds both you and the vendor avoid the auction itself. This saves time and effort and can relieve both parties of any angst around the Auction Day process. It

A home among the gum trees This house on 1.7 hectares has oodles of of character, writes Carole Levy shered along by birdsong and the ‘noisy silence’ of a bush road, I drove down the appointed driveway beside a pretty reededged dam (with jetty) set in an expanse of parkland dotted fittingly with lordly eucalypts. Other garden spots put on a display of golden daffodils, cottage plants and ornamental shrubs but, essentially, this property of about 1.72 hectares is a ‘home among the gum trees’. The house has lots of character evoked by exposed brick walls, multi-paned doors and windows, pitched timber-lined ceilings with exposed beams, skylights and brick fireplace and chimney. Past a verandah, the front door opens directly to a lounge-dining room; next door is a rumpus

room with a gas potbelly stove adding radiant heat to exposed brick walls and tiled floor, which become cooling elements in summer. Three bedrooms ranged along the front include the main with walk-in wardrobe and access to a two-way bathroom with dual vanity basins. The meals area is a charmer with its painted timber dado walls, a bank of skylights in a pitched ceiling and a Heat Charm wood heater. The neighbouring kitchen has a two-door pantry, timber cupboards, dishwasher and a Smeg 900mm underbench oven and gas cooktop. The meals and rumpus rooms have back garden access, while the lounge-dining area opens to a pitched-roof pergola.

Crazy paving underfoot and cafe blinds all around gives this all-seasons spot an almostconservatory feel. And a wood-fired pizza oven tucked away in the garden is a family gathering trump card. Two large sheds, a fenced dog yard, a fantastic cubbyhouse and a garden-defined backyard make this a property with family time and the serious stuff on its mind —and it’s all four kilometres from Woodend’s many attractions.

NEWHOMES&LAND

Big blocks a bonus Nearby parkland and generous-size yards beckon at Forsyth Park uyers could be forgiven for thinking the days have gone when big backyards were the norm, so they’ll be happy to know larger blocks are now available at Forsyth Park in Truganina. Forsyth Park’s developer, ISPT, is selling land as part of the estate’s stage three release. Blocks range from 484 to 702 square metres. ISPT development manager Sean Hogan sees many benefits to having extra space. ‘‘Enjoying a game of backyard cricket or relaxing in the pool are some of the things families can enjoy with a larger backyard.’’ The estate is appealing to buyers for other reasons, too, including its central park precinct and landscaped surrounds. Mr Hogan says the design process from the outset involved creating a community that would endure for generations to come, thanks to a return of traditional values of wide, open streetscapes and peaceful parklands. ‘‘Forsyth Park will be accentuated with mature tree-lined streets, landscaped, indented parking

B

provisions and enough parkland amenities to ensure every household is within walking distance of open space. ‘‘As block sizes continue to shrink across the region, stage three will be one of the few releases to see a resurgence of larger-than-average lots so families can have the luxury of hosting gettogethers or enjoying a game of kick-to-kick in the backyard,’’ Mr Hogan said. Positioned just a short stroll to the cafe precinct and proposed parkland, the stage three release was perfect for garden cultivators, party planners and larger families looking for room to move, he added. For more information, visit Forsyth Park’s website, drop into the onsite sales office or call the number above.

spectacular concert, the Daffodil Old Time Ball, an art and craft show and the grand parade have delighted festival-goers for many years. For the past decade, these have been joined by the Daffodil Art Prize and Rotary Youth Art Awards, mosaics, the Gallery 40 photography competition, ferret racing and scarecrows, buskers, the alpaca fiesta and the School Beats concert. Markets and fairs, and exhibitions presenting high-quality art and craft to see and buy, have multiplied over the years. No Kyneton celebration would be complete without a strong showing from the renowned foodie culture. The Piper Street Food Co, Monsieur Pierre and Emilia and Saucy Australian will offer classes and tastings. A Retro Costume Party (held on August 10), a writers’ expo, photography exhibitions, Maggie Millar’s ‘‘Fairytales for Grown-Ups’’ and a Pleasant Sunday Afternoon concert are new events this year. Groups and individuals give their talents and time voluntarily to make the festival a spectacular, fun-filled success that attracts many visitors to Kyneton and the region.

n 1973, a group came together to form the Daffodil and Arts Committee, drawing talented forces from the community to formulate a festival to celebrate the coming of spring in Kyneton. Of course, the signature flower of the town is the daffodil which pops up its head in a golden carpet announcing the arrival of spring. Each year the festival has a theme, this year appropriately 40 Bloomin’ Years. The naming of a festival king and queen is an eagerly anticipated tradition each year and the pair, along with two princes and two princesses, are ambassadors and an integral part of the celebrations. Open gardens have always been a festival highlight. This year, to celebrate the 40th anniversary, 22 gardens will open to the public with magnificent displays of spring flowers in magical settings.

No horsing around when it comes to care

Professional Hoof Care and Advice Transitioning Boot Fitting Hoof Pathologies, General maintenance trimming Quiet and gentle approach to horses.

Laura Smith,

Diploma of Podiotherapy

By Rebecca Miller

C

aring for a large, four-legged friend can be a lot of work, but it’s worth it, says Gisborne vet Emma Lawson Kissane. ‘‘I’ve been a vet for four years and have always loved horses. They’re gentle giants,’’ Dr Lawson Kissane says. Horse Care: Dr Lawson Kissane with Buzz. She says brushing a horse’s coat daily gets rid of dirt and mud.

‘‘I enjoy treating them and helping their owners provide the best possible care. ‘‘Horses need to be kept in a safe place with shelter, access to fresh water and adequate fencing. ‘‘They need to have their feet trimmed and shoes replaced every six to eight weeks and see a horse dentist or vet every six to 12 months. ‘‘Regular worming and vaccinations are also required,’’ she says. Dr Lawson Kissane says there are tell-tale signs that a horse is unwell. ‘‘Any change in a horse’s normal behaviour or attitude is often a sign something is wrong. If they’re off their food, showing signs of pain or discomfort then it’s time to call the vet. ‘‘I often advise owners to have a thermometer on hand to check the horse’s temperature before calling.’’

She advises owners to consider specific seasonal care such as warm, dry rugs in winter and a fly mask to protect eyes in summer. ‘‘With spring coming up horses are at risk of getting laminitis — a very painful condition from inflammation within the hoof. It mainly affects ponies and ‘good-doers’ — overweight horses. ‘‘To avoid laminitis, horses should have limited access to lush, green grass in spring by being kept in a stable or yard and being hand fed. Or alternatively, they can wear a muzzle to restrict their intake. If the horse becomes foot-sore, it’s best to call the vet.’’ She says the nutritional requirements of a horse depend on their breed, the amount of activity they’re involved in, body condition and age, with feed programs needing to be tailored to each individual horse.

A lifetime’s learning aids our miners This science ‘geek’ has followed numerous career paths, writes Rebecca Miller

A

ive.’’ Mr Franklin says his career highlights, although not linked to mining, have shaped the person he is today and expanded his knowledge. ‘‘I did scientific research in Antarctica. My seven-month stint at Davis Station working in the field was a life-changing experience. ‘‘It’s impossible not to be affected by Antarctica with its thousand shades of blue, its silence and, in those days, lack of digital distractions. It was easy to live in the moment and appreciate the sublime. ‘‘Mostly, my work involves finding and chasing leads for new customers and jobs, but when I’m on an assignment it’s pretty full-on. I run workshops, write reports and

read a lot about new developments in the mining sector.’’ He says there are many ‘good bits’ to his career. ‘‘It’s a great feeling to be able to tell a customer how much money they can save by doing things differently.’’ His skills also stretch to musical talents, something he enjoys in his spare time. ‘‘I’m teaching myself to play the ukulele; it’s great fun to have some music in your life. I also enjoy pottering in my vegetable garden, and I keep some chickens.’’ The next step in his career involves another new challenge unrelated to geology or mining. ‘‘I’m hoping to get elected to the Macedon Ranges Shire Council in October so I can give more back to the community.’’

Achieving big things was always on his professional agenda. ‘‘I’ve had a strange career pathway,’’ Mr Franklin, of Gisborne, says. ‘‘I started in the navy then after 10 years went back to university to study a doctorate in geology. After that I worked in oil and gas exploration and later in the information technology industry. ‘‘Now I’m a mining consultant.

Hot hatch steps up the power, writes Ewan Kennedy om Walkinshaw may no longer be with us, but his spirit lives on in Melbourne where the company that carries his name, Walkinshaw Performance (WP), still produces some very interesting hot machines. Obviously WP will always be thought of in terms of ultra-quick Commodores, but take a look at the WP Hot Cruze Hot Hatch to see what we mean in the way of variety. Cruze Hot Hatch has received a very significant power boost. Upgrades for the already-good 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engines give it 80 per cent more power and 50 per cent more torque. That is, power is up from 103 kW to 180 kW and torque has been lifted from 200 Nm to 310 Nm. These are the sort of numbers you would expect from a 3.2-litre six-cylinder engine. In a smallmedium hatch they result in stunning performance. The engine features an upgraded turbo and exhaust manifold. Keeping all the extra power firmly on the road are an upgraded and suspension package developed with

Real deal: Wait until you see the styling statement the hot WP Cruze Hot Hatch makes in the metal. Bilstein and 18 x 8 alloy wheels. This particular Cruze Hot Hatch has had its exterior wrapped in matt white by Exotic Graphics and looks stunning in the metal, though it must be admitted that publishing shots of a white car in a newspaper doesn’t do it a lot of favours. This sort of engineering doesn’t come cheap, WP quotes $19,995 for the package – to which has to be added the cost of the car you choose to have improved.

Top two share honours in epic battle BY LUKE WEST

SCOREBOARD

THE Bendigo Football League’s two best teams — Gisborne and Golden Square — gave a mouth-watering entree to what could lie ahead in the finals when they played out an epic draw at Wade Street Oval on Saturday. In a game played at a finals-like intensity, scores were locked together at 14.10 (94) apiece when the final siren sounded. In what has been the best game of the year, living up to its top-of-the-ladder blockbuster status, Gisborne recovered from a 52-point deficit early in the second quarter to claim two valuable premiership points that guarantee they’ll end the season on top of the ladder. Gisborne conceded the first eight goals of the match, didn’t score in the opening quarter and took until the 12-minute mark of the second term to kick its first goal, by which time it was 52 points down. But it willed its way back into the contest and for most of the last quarter looked like winning. “We just didn’t turn up early and Golden Square really showed us how to play footy,” Gisborne coach Luke Saunders said.

BENDIGO FL Golden Square 14.10 (94) drew Gisborne 14.10 (94) GOALS — Golden Square: G. Weeks 4, M. O’Toole 3, T. Baird 2, C. Carter , R. Bradley , C. Sharp , S. Rosa , J. Griffin 1 Gisborne: M. Knox 3, D. Farrugia, L. Crosbie 2, T. Stanton-Smith , A. Headberry , D. Weaver , O. Messaoudi , E. McKenna , C. Illman , K. Grbac 1 BEST — Golden Square: S. Rosa, T. Baird, D. Lowry, M. O’’Toole, O. Collins, L. Hammond Gisborne: D. Weaver, S. Walsh, H. Simpson, J.

“Golden Square didn’t let us into the game in the first quarter-and-a-half. ‘‘They started strongly, won the ball better than us and we couldn’t get into it.” Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the first quarter, Golden Square made full use of it, kicking 7.4 to lead by 46 points as it held Gisborne scoreless. Square attacked the contest early like a team that had waited two months for another crack at Gisborne following its dismal showing against its

Lynch, O. Messaoudi, J. Arnold Kyneton 10.7 (67) lt Sandhurst 12.17 (89) GOALS — Kyneton: N. Thompson 6, A. Beckerley 2, J. Boyer , Z. Boyer 1 Sandhurst: R. Symes 3, B. Holmes, D. Symes 2, N. Meade , N. Stagg , J. Ward , G. Hartney , M. Leyden 1 BEST — Kyneton: D. Chambers, K. Davis, M. Clancy, D. Romer, H. Huntley, A. Beckerley Sahdnurst: T. Hartney, B. Holmes, M. Borchard, J. Wharton, N. Stagg, J. Wilkinson

Bulldogs rivals in round eight when beaten by 67 points. Gisborne was best served by wingman Daniel Weaver, tenacious onballer Scott Walsh, full-back Heath Simpson, who held Weeks to four goals, and veteran Ollie Messaoudi, who revelled in the tough contest. The draw was Gisborne’s first in its 245 matches since joining the BFL in 2000.

Tigers’ efforts to no avail

a big day after jumping to a 36-point lead at quarter-time, only for a Tigers fightback to push the third-placed team. The Tigers stayed with Sandhurst to trail by 35 at three-quarter-time before closing the final margin to 22 points: 10.7 (67) to 12.17 (89). Tigers playing coach Nathan Thompson booted six goals, while Darren Chambers and Kris Davis were better players in the defeat. The Tigers have one more chance to make a statement with this weekend’s final home-andaway game against finals-bound Strathfieldsaye at Tannery Lane. Kyneton will avoid the wooden spoon with a win or if seventh-placed Eaglehawk beats lastplaced Castlemaine in the final round.

Gisborne stays in fifth In A grade netball, Gisborne is locked into fifth after a one-goal defeat to Golden Square ended any chance of advancing up the table. The 35-36 loss means Gisborne (7-1-7) cannot catch fourth-placed Golden Square (9-6) or be caught by sixth-placed Maryborough (5-10) with one round remaining.

New senior coach for East Sunbury EAST Sunbury has taken its next step towards fielding a senior team in Essendon District Football League with the appointment of Casey Whelan as coach for next year. Whelan is a former Jacana senior coach who has had success at under-18 level with EDFL club Aberfeldie. East Sunbury will become the seventh team in the recently created division 2, the third tier of EDFL. ‘‘He did a training session with the under18s filling in during the season; he did say he didn’t want to coach,’’ East Sunbury club president Peter Methven said. ‘‘But when his feet hit the grass the passion came back.’’ Methven said the club’s playing stocks were sufficient for a senior team and recruiting would continue through the offseason. East Sunbury’s rivals in the division next season will be Hillside, East Keilor, Moonee Valley, Roxburgh Park, Keilor Park and Jacana. East Keilor advanced to this season’s division 2 grand final by beating Hillside in the qualifying final at the weekend. However, this season’s premier will not be promoted to division 1. East Sunbury is holding a meet-andgreet session with its new senior coach this Sunday at 2pm at East Sunbury.

However, the Lions’ 29-point victory has come at a cost with talented onballer Xavier Linton dislocating his shoulder early in the final quarter and young wingman, James Rizk, receiving a yellow card midway through the second quarter. Linton was taken by ambulance to hospital and his season appears to be over, while Rizk’s chances of playing finals could rest with the BFL tribunal. After the match, Sunbury coach Rick Horwood praised his team’s mental

strength throughout the game. “That’s two weeks in a row where we’ve taken the ascendancy and won the contested ball,” he said. “They’re [Sunbury] a really hard and committed team at the moment leading into the finals.” “The umpires need to be applauded for their work tonight, and the same for North Ballarat City, too. “It takes courage to play in such atrocious conditions.” During the final change North City coach Robbie Waters urged his players to inflict some scoreboard pressure by creating space across the midfield and forward line. But, unlike the corresponding game last year, there was to be no miracle lastquarter turnaround victory for the visitors. When Sunbury defender Brett

Chambers sneaked forward for a fine running goal, the Lions had the sealer they needed. In netball A grade, Sunbury’s strong late-season form resulted in another win with a 46-39 victory against North Ballarat. Barbara Joseph shot 23 goals to lead the scoring as three-win, 13-loss Sunbury moved to within a game of eighth-placed North Ballarat (4-11).

Macedon, Melton net top-two positions MACEDON and Melton Central will prepare for backto-back meetings after the duo sealed the top two spots on the

Riddell District Netball League A grade ladder at the weekend. The Cats and Blues will play for top spot this weekend, then again for a spot in the preliminary final after the weekend results locked in the top pair. Central won 42-31 against Romsey to end the Redbacks’ hopes of gatecrashing the top two, while Macedon won 87-13 against Kilmore. Broadford beat seventhplaced Diggers Rest 49-20 to ensure Wallan would play finals after its 44-all draw against Sunbury Kangaroos. In the weekend’s other match Riddell beat Rockbank 84-19.

Double chance unlikely after Romsey capitulates ROMSEY may have blown a top two finish and finals double chance after a lowscoring slog ended in an 18-point loss to Melton Central at the weekend. The reigning Riddell District Football League premier will need to thrash Rockbank in the final round of the homeand-away season and hope for a favour from Diggers Rest to finish in the top two. Melton Central won more than just the four points with the 6.10 (46) to 4.4 (28) result at Romsey Park, sealing a finals spot at Wallan’s expense. The sixth-placed Blues (9-1-7) play seventhplaced Wallan (8-9) in the final round but cannot be displaced from the finals. Romsey could be Centrals’ opponent in an elimination final unless Diggers Rest (first, 16-1) can beat Sunbury Kangaroos (second, 14-3) in the final round and allow Romsey (third, 13-4) to reclaim second place. Romsey plays Rockbank in the final round but making up the percentage gap will be difficult, with the Kangaroos’ league-low 745 points a big factor in its league-leading percentage of 254.50, com-

pared to Romsey’s 205.41. Riddell (13-4) is 88 per cent behind Sunbury Kangaroos and would need an unprecedented margin of victory against Woodend Hesket to make up the gap. Melton Central got a twogoal start at quarter-time on Saturday while Romsey went scoreless in the opening term, before the Redbacks hit back to trail by just three points at half-time. But the four goals Romsey kicked in the second quarter would be its only four for the game, with Central edging out to a 10-point lead thanks to seven behinds in the third quarter before sealing the match with two goals in the last term. At Boardman Reserve, Sunbury ended Wallan’s hopes of finals with a 14-point win, 10.11 (71) to 8.9 (57). Ryan Hatty and Jared Pretty kicked two goals each for the Roos, who broke the game open with three unanswered goals in the second quarter before holding the lead through the second half.
