Shire won’t budge on supermart BY ANGELA VALENTE RIDDELLS Creek residents will continue to fight a Macedon Ranges Council decision to grant a permit for a supermarket in the town. About 80 residents gathered at the council meeting on Wednesday to show they were united in their opposition to the supermarket. In February, the council approved the permit application at 1-3 Station Street that included a plan for a supermarket with retail outlets and 179 parking spaces. At the Wednesday meeting, Cr Henry McLaughlin sought to rescind the decision but the council did not agree.

On March 22, four Riddells Creek residents — Lyn Hovey, Jenny Grounds, John Ball and architect Yvonne von Hartel — lodged an appeal at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal over the permit issue. At last week’s meeting, Cr McLaughlin put forward a motion, asking the council that, with the matter going to the tribunal, it should no longer support the issue of a planning permit. The motion was defeated. It was met with shouting from the gallery, with residents yelling ‘‘what a disgrace’’, with another saying, ‘‘boycott the supermarket’’. Cr McLaughlin said the motion was

planning professional to understand.’’ A petition with 335 signatures was tabled at the meeting. Cr Jennifer Anderson said the council needed to show solidarity with a decision it had already taken. ‘‘Last month I didn’t support the application and I still feel that way. But we can’t flip and flop and go back on our decisions.’’ Ms Hovey, a member of Transition Town Riddell, was disappointed by the council’s decision but vowed not to give up the fight. ‘‘You could see the passion of the crowd. People are very respectful and passionate about Riddells Creek. ‘‘It might have been an 8-1 [council vote] setback, but all is not lost.’’

Sunbury Girl Guides — including Umindi, Emily, Tahlia and Nickieran — have taken an extra step for charity. Thirteen girls and two group leaders took part in Care Australia’s Walk in Her Shoes challenge to help make life just a little easier for people in developing countries. The Sunbury team walked 10,000 steps a day for a week late last month. Group leader Annette Swaffield says the girls, aged five to 11, loved the challenge and learned about the hardships women and children overseas have to go through. ‘‘We spent a month working up to it, teaching them about what women and children go through in developing countries. When we started, we encouraged them to walk as many steps as possible and keep increasing it. We were surprised how many of them reached 10,000 steps on the first day.’’ The group is aiming to raise $600 and is still looking for donations.

Picnic for a cuddly crowd IF you go down to Gisborne on Saturday you will find more than 300 teddy bears have taken over the town’s adventure playground. They will be taking part in the teddy bear picnic organised by Gisborne’s Emma Gierschick to raise funds for Down Syndrome Victoria (DSV). Down syndrome is an issue close to Ms Gierschick’s heart — her eight-month-old daughter Amelia has the genetic condition. Ms Gierschick says about 300 children are expected at the fundraiser. ‘‘Initially it was going to be a local mothers’ group, but now we have several hundred children attending.’’ There will be a jumping-castle, face-painting, pony rides, a children’s animal farm, teddy bear songs and cupcakes, CFA fire truck and a life-size teddy bear. Ms Gierschick is looking for volunteers to help with a sausage sizzle and first aid. There will be judging on the oldest, biggest and best-dressed teddy bears as well as the best child disguise and best picnic mat. Ms Gierschick said DSV provided training and support when Amelia was diagnosed with the condition.

Off to party: Emma Gierschick and Amelia are ready for the picnic. ‘‘We were told at 13 weeks [of pregnancy] that there was a high possibility of our child having Down syndrome. ‘‘When she was diagnosed we had so much support from DSV. . . it supported us and helped us in any way they could.’’

HUME Council is seeking answers on the elusive $14.7 million allocated by the previous Labor government for a government services building in Broadmeadows . The Coalition government announced in March last year the building would no longer be built. In the 2012-13 state budget, it diverted the money for the ‘ central activities areas and strategic sites,’ to be used statewide. On February 6, mayor Geoff Porter wrote to then treasurer Kim Wells, asking for an update on the funding and whether Hume would get any of it. In his email, Cr Porter suggested projects in Broadmeadows, Craigieburn and Sunbury that could well use funding. At a council meeting last Monday, Cr Adem Atmaca expressed his disappointment that the council was yet to be given a reply from the state government. ‘‘This $14.7 million was allocated to Hume Council for its central business district works. ‘‘However, a change of government saw

that we got neither the building nor the $14.7 million. . . the money was taken back and distributed through all the central business activity areas across the state. ‘‘It’s like the reversal of Robin Hood. They are taking money from the poor and distributing it among the wealthy suburbs.’’ Cr Atmaca said it was not the first time the council had failed to receive a response from the government. ‘‘We are [also] having issues with other departments . . . [from whom] we aren’t getting responses and it’s very disappointing.’’ Cr Jack Ogilvie said two Hume projects — parking at Sunbury and Craigieburn stations — were important. ‘‘They [the government] have brought the money forward to budgets, saying it’s still there for something.’’ Cr Atmaca advocated that the state government commit the funding back to projects in Hume. He said the parking situations in Craigieburn and Sunbury, both major issues, could be solved with less than half the $14.7 million.

Time for a cuppa and more as house becomes like home SUNBURY Neighbourhood House is hoping its new weekly session will attract more people and volunteers. Time for a Cuppa, which starts early next month, is different from other house programs. ‘‘People don’t have to need a reason to attend each week, but it will be somewhere to go and somewhere to be,’’ says House co-ordinator Anita Barnard.

‘‘They may just want to get out of the house and use the computers or do crosswords and not want to talk to anyone and that’s OK. ‘‘Establishing social connections in the community is good for improving people’s health.’’ She said the activities would vary, depending on what people wanted to do and the skills of the volunteers running the program. ‘‘We will look at having a conversation group,

card games, jigsaw puzzles, walking sessions and things like that. We are looking at getting a guest speaker once a term and getting some linedancing lessons. ‘‘We will always have different group activities running, including looking at doing recipe swapping and walking. ‘‘The sky is the limit with the opportunities we have and we are looking at using three areas in

the centre, allowing for different activities.’’ Ms Barnard said volunteers were needed. ‘‘People have the opportunity to be involved as a participant, volunteer or as both.’’ The house offers educational, social, recreational and support programs for people of all backgrounds, ages and cultures.

MORE frequent and longer trains on the Sunbury line are the highlights for Sunbury residents in a $30 billion state plan detailing a vision for Melbourne’s transport system. The Network Development Plan — Metropolitan Rail, released on Wednesday by Public Transport Victoria chief executive Ian Dobbs, details the infrastructure and services needed over the next 20 years. The Melbourne Metro rail tunnel — which will run from South Kensington to South Yarra via Parkville and the Domain — is the key to the project. Mr Dobbs said the PTV ‘‘fervently’’ believed in the need for the nine-kilometre rail tunnel, estimated to cost $5 billion. He said the tunnel would allow the system to grow to meet the expected patronage of 1.1 billion boardings a year by 2031.

Under the plan, Sunbury trains will run through the Metro tunnel. ‘‘Implementation of the Melbourne Metro rail tunnel project will enable more Sunbury line services to operate and the opportunity to operate largercapacity trains on that corridor,’’ the report says. It’s expected once the tunnel is built it will cater for an additional four Sunbury line services an hour during peak-hour. From 2020, larger-capacity trains will run on the Sunbury line, which can carry up to 1600 passengers per train. Completion of the Regional Rail Link in 2016 will coincide with more trains on the Sunbury line. By then, it’s expected there will be nine trains an hour during peak hour on the Sunbury line and three during off-peak times. Signalling upgrades on the Sunbury line will also help increase services.

organised activities throughout the month to raise awareness about autism. A community barbecue will be held at noon this Saturday at the Romsey Lions Reserve. There will be facepainting and children’s activities. CCH children’s services co-ordinator Prue Southey said a fund-raising dinner would be held at Sicilian Vespers restaurant in Romsey on Thursday for the Play Connect group, an autismspecific playgroup. She said the group was for newly diagnosed children and their parents. ‘‘Families are often very raw, confused and vulnerable. This group offers reliable information and support.’’ It’s run by Shantelle Grant, who has an eight-year-old autistic daughter and built the group from two families last year to more than 15 now. Mrs Grant says the families — from the Macedon Ranges, Sunbury, Kilmore and Wallan areas — come in

Public Transport Users Association president Tony Morton said Sunbury and Craigieburn should benefit from the completion of the Regional Rail Link. ‘‘According to the PTV documents, this should allow additional peak-hour trains to run on these lines, and boost the frequency to a train every 10 minutes all day. ‘‘We urge the state government to provide funding in the budget to allow these additional services to run.’’ Dr Morton criticised the elevating of the Melbourne Metro rail tunnel project, saying replacing Melbourne’s antiquated signalling system would do more to improve capacity. ‘‘The plan is fine but the sequence is wrong,’’ Dr Morton said. ‘‘By putting Melbourne Metro – the most expensive project by far – ahead of everything, they are jeopardising everything else.’’ — With The Age

House proud, for three decades GOONAWARRA Neighbourhood House won’t be the same with the retirement of manager Lis Rauch. Ms Rauch, who has been at the centre since it began, has retired after serving the Goonawarra community for 30 years. She was farewelled with a celebration last month. Ms Rauch last week told the Weekly she didn’t expect to be at the house for so long. She started as a volunteer with the Goonawarra advancement committee in 1983. ‘‘When I started volunteering for the committee there were only 60 houses in Goonawarra and there was nothing here [services and infrastructure]. ‘‘I was then employed to lobby for infrastructure like the schools, childcare and neighbourhood house.’’ In 1988, she took up the role as neighbourhood house co-ordinator and was appointed as the manager of the new Goonawarra Neighbourhood House in 1990. ‘‘I have strong memories of making this happen. There’s no one special memory. It was about working to provide a facility, not just for Goonawarra but for all of Sunbury. ‘‘I’m pleased where the house has got to and it’s quite an asset to the community which I’m proud of.’’ Staff member Sue Burke said Ms Rauch was integral in establishing and growing the centre. Ms Rauch, 59, said she would spend her retirement travelling, working in the garden and spending time with her 17 grandchildren. — Tara Murray

In November, the Weekly highlighted residents’ concerns about a dirt walking track, near The Willows in Gisborne, with waist-high grass they said posed a safety risk to children walking to school. The track meets a concrete footpath just after the children’s crossing on Gisborne-Melton Road near the school. But this section of the road has been overlooked by Macedon Ranges Council, which has instead promised to built a footpath on the other side of Gisborne Secondary College.

Mr Thornton said new sections of footpaths were completed in Corinella Road in Woodend, creating a pathway from Ashbourne Road to the Woodend railway station car park. “We’ve targeted high-traffic areas located in and around schools, business districts, community facilities and areas where there are missing sections in the existing [footpath] network,’’ he said.

Shire avoids hubbub

Timely warning rings true AFTER more than 30 house fires last year in the Macedon Ranges and Sunbury areas, the CFA is warning residents to ensure they have working smoke alarms in their homes. Kyneton Fire Brigade captain Brett Magrath wants residents to change their smoke alarm batteries this Sunday as part of the annual ‘change your clocks’ campaign. Mr Magrath says fire is unpredictable and residents need to be careful. ‘‘Smoke alarms are designed to wake you up. That’s what they are for; they can detect smoke long before we can while we’re sleeping.’’ Last month, a dryer caught fire in a house in Beauchamp Street in Kyneton. Mr Magrath said residents needed to take precautions, including cleaning lint from dryers, and taking extra care when cooking. CFA deputy chief officer Steve Warrington said smoke alarms should be placed between each bedroom area and the rest of the house. “If you sleep with your bedroom door shut, consider having a smoke alarm inside the bedroom. In a multiple-storey home a smoke alarm is required on every storey, located in the path that people will use to evacuate.

MACEDON Ranges Council will investigate new sites in Gisborne for an early-years hub — but it won’t disclose where. The council adopted a report in-camera at a meeting on Wednesday night about the proposed new site options for the hub. Mayor Roger Jukes said the council worked through a ‘‘long list’’ of potential sites to determine the most suitable one and would start investigation and consultation with key groups. ‘‘Once we’ve had an opportunity to speak to the relevant stakeholders and hear their feedback, the council will again consider the matter,’’ he said. The council will keep the report confidential to ensure information on the potential sites is ‘‘managed appropriately and does not compromise council or any other party’’. Cr Sally Piper said the council was committed to working with the community to achieve a suitable site for the hub. ‘‘We understand that the community has an interest in this project and appreciate your patience as we work through the required processes.’’ Last year, the council considered having the hub development at Gisborne’s Daly Reserve but it backed off after a community campaign against the decision. In December, the council withdrew its plan for the reserve and decided to look for other sites. The earlyyears hub could still be built on the reserve if no other site is deemed suitable. — Angela Valente

COVERSTORY

Haunted jaunts The old homesteads in Melbourne’s north-west make it a favourite site for ghost hunters. Tara Murray joined one tour searching for spectres.

A

lex Mifsud suddenly stops talking and asks: ‘‘Did anyone else see that?’’ He looks for another moment, then says: “There was a lady just ran across the room. It’s the first time I’ve seen someone run across this room like that.’’ But it wasn’t just any lady. It was a ghost. It isn’t the first time Alex claims to have seen one, nor will it be the last. Misfud is one of the hosts of Lantern Ghost tours. On this occasion he is taking a group through Point Cook Homestead. ‘‘People get pushed, poked, their hair gets lifted,’’ he says. ‘‘Some people hear their names being called and others can smell and hear things. Every night is different. Some nights there’s lots of activity, then other nights we don’t get as much.’’ Jacqui Travaglia started Lantern Ghost Tours Williamstown in 2009. She and her partner Andrew Wishart have expanded the tours to Altona, Point Cook and Eynesbury homesteads, and overnight tours to places like the infamous J-Ward asylum in Ararat. Travaglia has seen ghosts for as long as she can remember. ‘‘I grew up in a haunted house in Williamstown and I used to see a little old woman walking around the house and hear footsteps that were unexplained. A little old woman used to live there with her husband and she liked to cook. ‘‘Then I moved to England and there’s a lot of history and ghost activity there as well. I did every single ghost tour I could do and stayed at every haunted place I could. Then my friends would come along with me and go ghost hunting. Their friends started to join and then I thought, I could get a bit extra for this and cover my costs, and it developed into a business.’’ Travaglia says the Point Cook Homestead is one of the most active places for ghosts, with at least 12 there. They include a little boy who drowned, a stablehand,

a cat, a couple, an RAAF pilot and the ghosts of the property’s owner Thomas Chirnside, his brother Andrew and his wife Mary. ‘‘Point Cook Homestead has the most activity and we haven’t had a tour without any action. It’s not scary, but a welcoming tour. ‘‘At Eynesbury we believe there’s a lot of spirits there as they use to hold wakes there. When somebody died they would hold a wake and put the body on the lounge-room table and people would come and see the body and they would keep a visual on it in case it woke up. That’s why we believe there’s a lot of bodies trapped. ‘‘The scariest [place] is the J-Ward asylum [in Ararat] which housed the criminally insane. We stay overnight there and it’s quite uncomfortable. We had one guest we believe was possessed and we’ve had people locked in the cells, which is physically impossible.’’ Travaglia says many people who look for ghosts are sceptics, who want to be proved wrong or right. ‘‘We have a lot of sceptics come to our tours. We have a number of different tours catering for those who want to research it more with equipment, and others involving the general public. ‘‘Some walk away more sceptical, but have a good night having enjoyed the stories. The best thing is when they change their minds. Sceptics are more scared than the non-sceptics when they experience something. ‘‘For us it’s about the history, the stories and the ghosts. Some of the stories are more interesting than fiction.’’

‘‘My wife was the believer. But I have since changed my mind. There’s whistling upstairs, unexplained noises, stomping upstairs, glasses break, chairs and cutlery move and you can come in the morning and the stove top is on. We get lots of people taking photos on the stairs and they will send them in and we’ll see a person in the background.’’ Levey isn’t the pub’s first owner to change his mind about ghosts. Frank Nelson and his wife bought the hotel in March 1984. It took only three days for Nelson to experience his first ghost. He was pushed down the stairs resulting in an ankle broken in three spots. The final straw was when Nelson felt a hand between his leg and the plaster cast. He and his wife moved out a short time later. Levey says there are three known ghosts who haunt the pub, including a Chinese man who was found hanging in the stables after a fight over gold, and Irish man Patrick Regan, who was murdered after talking about finding gold. The third is a little girl who was murdered by her father and thrown in the well at the rear of the hotel. The girl, who was intellectually disabled, is often seen around the staircases; a number of children have reported seeing her. Levey says many people come to the pub, just to see if they can see ghosts. ‘‘There’s three types of people who come to the pub to see the ghosts. You have the people who come to take photos, you have the psychics and mediums, and then you have those dressed all in black who come on the full moon at midnight.’’

Paul Levey didn’t believe in ghosts until 2006,

The Blackwood Hotel is another which claims it’s the most haunted pub in Australia. ‘‘I’m not a great believer of ghosts, but you get a sixth sense about things,’’ says Heinz Mueller, who took over the hotel three years ago.

when he took over The Coach & Horses Inn in Clarkfield, which many people call Australia’s most haunted pub. ‘‘I thought the stories were sort of not true,’’ he says.

‘‘When I’m doing my rounds, you get a feeling around the [former] morgue and you feel the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Staff members, some who have been here for over 20 years, won’t work by themselves, so that says something.’’ He says there are four ghosts at the hotel and describes them as ‘‘friendly.’’ The most famous are Laura Dalton, who was burnt to death in the 1940s, and a miner who sits next to the fire. ‘‘Everyone who comes here, comes to see if they can see the ghosts. We take them on tours of the cellars and downstairs. Unit three has been built into the morgue and people come from far and wide to stay in that room.’’ In 2007, a TV series, Haunted Australia, visited nine locations looking for ghosts, three were in Melbourne’s outer north-west. They visited the Coach & Horses Inn and the Blackwood Hotel, as well as the Melton Equestrian Centre. The old Sunbury University campus, which was originally the Sunbury Lunatic Asylum, is another spot where ghosts have been reported, while there’s reports of a maid being seen at Salesian Bridge also in Sunbury. Travaglia puts this down to the fact that a lot of the old buildings are still in existence. ‘‘I think the reason for that is that we we have a lot of old homesteads like Eynesbury and Point Cook. On the other side of the city, they have lost a lot of that and the history with it.’’ Back at Point Cook, sadly for Misfud, no one else sees the lady running across the room. On this occasion, it was the only ghost to appear on the tour and many people are left disappointed. Opinion will always be divided on whether ghosts are real, but for people like Mifusd believing is only the beginning.

With many parts of the city not well served by public transport, cars become indispensable for shopping or dropping children off at school . . . if you can drive. Hume Whittlesea Local Learning and Employment Network (HWLLEN) has identified a gap in driver education services for people aged 21 and above, and especially young parents whose learner-driving has been interrupted. ‘‘Research done by Centrelink also showed many middle-aged migrant women have given up

on ever getting their licence and mainly because of the costs,’’ community action leader Huon Damm told the Weekly. ‘‘Such people in the 30-35-year-old age bracket are quite disconnected.’’ HWLLEN is offering free driving lessons for older learners as an adjunct to its regular L2P driver education courses. The Ignition initiative is open to Hume residents aged 21 and over. And if you are already fully qualified to drive, consider becoming a mentor to others. Details: Nicky Leitch, 9309 5500.

BY HELEN GRIMAUX BOOM times in Hume may be good for business, but there are real concerns about the ongoing affordability and sustainability of new residential subdivisions. In its submission to the state government’s Melbourne planning strategy discussion paper, Hume Council echoes concerns cited by the government’s own senior ministerial advisor Roz Hansen. ‘‘We know that growing the boundary further and further out has not solved the affordable housing issue,’’ Ms Hansen said last week. ‘‘We have an increase in the number of youth out on the fringe who aren’t taking participating in the education system, who are becoming unemployed and disillusioned with their lot.’’ Last week, Hume Council sent in its own submission on the government’s discussion paper — the latter prepared by Ms Hansen and her advisory committee — calling for an authority independent of government to be responsible for ‘‘the co-ordination of land release and infrastruc-

ture delivery to ensure the equitable and timely provision of state infrastructure spending’’. ‘‘Governance surrounding growth areas needs to be improved,’’ Hume’s submission says, calling for a review of the current Growth Area Authority. ‘‘The current regime of authorities, such as the GAA, duplicates council planning processes (and) needs to be reviewed in favour of an authority charged with co-ordinating the planning of growth corridors and leaving the detailed planning and implementation of specific areas to council,’’ it states. The council criticises the government’s discussion paper for failing to properly identify or present solutions to address what it termed ‘‘the growing disparity between the two Melbournes’’. In February, Hume mayor Geoff Porter released One Melbourne or Two? on behalf of Melbourne’s 10 interface councils, including Hume. The report confirmed shortfalls in government funding that meant transport, jobs, education, medical, aged care and community facilities were not coping with the population boom.

BUTCHERY

Gridlock, but rail crossing up in air DESPITE increasing calls for a third rail crossing in Sunbury, when and where it will be built is still a mystery. Hume Council and developer Places Victoria (formerly VicUrban) had an agreement under which the developer was to build a third crossing after 750 homes had been built in the Jacksons Hill estate. As reported by the Weekly on September 25, a decision on the crossing was to be made after the council elections in October. The council and developer had earlier said technical problems had prevented them announcing a decision by last August. Last week, both said a decision had still not been made. The original plan was to build the new crossing using the Jacksons Hill viaduct connecting to Vineyard Road. Sunbury Business Association president Michael Osborne said the town was in desperate need of the third crossing,

especially since the introduction of Metro trains in November. ‘‘I know many people won’t go into the town centre at a certain time as they can’t move. ‘‘Strip shopping involves traffic moving regularly, but the main streets can be gridlocked due to traffic.’’ Hume’s infrastructure director Steve Crawley said the council was still in discussions with Places Victoria. “Both have encountered significant environmental, engineering and heritage issues with the viaduct road route. We are, therefore, investigating alternative routes.” A Places Victoria spokeswoman said it had been awaiting a decision from the council on its preferred option for the crossing. ‘‘The council has requested Places Victoria undertake a detailed investigation of an alternative alignment. Places Victoria will continue to work closely with the council to resolve this issue.’’

Stalwart’s legacy right up our alley BY TARA MURRAY

Bombs away Expert tips were drop-punted and handballed to Gisborne Secondary College year 7 students at a skills class with Essendon AFL players. Bombers Sean Gregory, Lauchlan Dalgleish, Ariel Steinberg, Dyson Heppell, Heath Hocking, Kyle Hardingham and Luke Davis demonstrated the game’s finer points. Teacher Tenielle Brown said 60 students out of 170 were chosen to take part. ‘‘We had a tough decision to choose them. The kids who handed in all their work were rewarded with the experience. The players talked about resilience and what was needed to become an AFL footballer. The students really loved it and are still talking about it.’’

THE family of the late Alex Dacakis, a wellknown Sunbury identity, are proud and excited that Hume Council has approved plans to name a laneway in the town in his honour. After a year of community consultation, the council last Monday approved the decision to name a right-of-way between Brook and Station streets as Dacakis Lane. The council received no objections during this process. The council has submitted an application to the Registrar of Geographic Names for review and registration in Vicnames. Mr Dacakis, who was also known as Alex Lloyd, moved to Sunbury is 1942 and lived here until his death in 2005. ‘‘We feel really proud that they are going to recognise him,’’ said Mr Dacakis’s daughter Georgia, who was at the council meeting. ‘‘We are really proud of his contribution to Sunbury and he was responsible for bringing a number of the Greek community out to

Sunbury.’’ In 1947, Mr Dacakis and his wife Mary bought their first two businesses adjacent to each other in O’Shannessy Street. Ms Dacakis said it was the beginning of her father and his brothers buying a number of businesses in town. ‘‘At one point [in the 1970s], the brothers ‘bookended’ both ends of the southern side of O’Shannessy between Station and Brook streets. The family still owns a number of businesses in O’Shannessy Street and have a family farm in Diggers Rest. Mr Dacakis’s wife Mary, who lived in Brook Street for 60 years until last year, said: ‘‘I’m very excited the council has decided to go ahead with this.’’ ‘‘He helped Sunbury grow and it’s nice to have this happen. The whole family is really happy about it.’’ Cr Jack Ogilvie, Jack Medcraft, Helen Patsikatheodorou and Ann Potter all spoke at the council meeting and welcomed the decision to name the lane after Mr Dacakis.

Real advice on funeral insurance from a name you can trust. Thinking about funeral insurance? If you are concerned about funeral expenses, then taking out funeral insurance may not be the most suitable option in protecting your loved ones either financially, or more importantly, emotionally. Many of us have seen these products advertised on television but unfortunately what may seem a great idea can often have a sting in its tail. For example did you know that: • Many people are being caught out by premiums that start low, but increase steadily over time. • In some cases, you have to keep paying your monthly premiums until you reach 90 years of age. • As people struggle to continue paying these increasing premiums, they risk losing it all if payments are missed. • The money that you invest in these products doesn’t even have to be used to pay for a funeral. So there is no guarantee that your financial wishes will be carried out. In most cases, people end up paying far more in premiums than what the policy will actually pay out. For example, a $6000 funeral policy taken out at age 60, could end up costing $7000 by age 70, $28,000 by age 80 and even up to $85,000 by age 90! This still doesn’t guarantee that the policy will cover funeral expenses at the time, or that it will even be used for funeral expenses at the time.

Let’s compare funeral insurance with a capital guaranteed prepaid funeral: PREPAID FUNERAL Able to pay off in instalments? Know exactly how much you will pay? Know exactly what is included and covered? No risk of cancellation from missed payments? Flexible, transferable and capital guaranteed? Advantages for pension means-testing? Guarantees the money goes towards the funeral? Guarantees your choice of funeral service?

There is no peace of mind with funeral insurance. There is only the ongoing worry about how much you will have to pay with the risk of losing all that you have paid. A prepaid funeral with TJ Scott & Son means that you only pay for the funeral service that you want at today’s prices – guaranteed. It’s that simple. So, talk to the professionals in funeral planning. TJ Scott & Son believe funeral planning ought to be done well, so talk to your financial adviser or ask us for a free, no-obligation quote.

There used to be nine MICA positions and now there are four. Of them, one has been on sick leave for more than a year and two of the remaining three are team managers regularly rostered off to administer and meet, reducing their availability. The reduction of MICA positions has happened by attrition and posts haven’t been refilled. There are even MICA-trained people here who can’t use those skills because they are not in a MICA position. The MICA paramedic has the highest level of training in the service. They are trained to place patients into an induced coma. This is a skill usually performed only by anaesthetists and some emergency doctors. MICA paramedics are able to transmit via Bluetooth 12-lead ECGs to selected hospitals to assist in most effective patient management of heart

attacks. They can be crucial in a wide range of childhood health crises. The cutback of these life-saving services to our community is in the context of this government dragging out the pay dispute with all paramedics: the highest trained and lowest paid in the country. They have been offered a minuscule pay rise and a loss of holiday pay. Paramedics are leaving to go interstate for better pay, making staff shortages and the issue of response times really difficult. Out here in the Ranges we rely on the ambulance

Let us affirm and celebrate the considerable achievements of the federal government under Julia Gillard over the past years. It is shameful that the media and Tony Abbott have tried, at every opportunity, to tear her down. This negativity must stop. Let’s cease this relentless and nasty criticism and remember this government’s achievements. These include the disability insurance scheme, the NBN, and the healthy economy which survived the global financial crisis. The list also includes the apology for forced adoption, serious attempts to address climate change and curb the big polluters, and the commissioning of the Gonski report on education. In the next few months, let us open our minds and look at all issues fairly and not be swayed by ‘cruel and prejudiced’ media attention. W. L. Hebbard, New Gisborne

AUCTION THIS SATURDAY 6TH APRIL @ NOON ON SITE 703 James Lane East Trentham

Fixing Your Home Loan Interest Rates It’s a hot topic at the moment. Should I fix my interest rate on my home loan, or wait a while? What does it mean? It’s an opportune time to take a look at this issue. We at Dunlop are interested in all aspects of real estate, but do not offer financial advice. My comments are for general interest only. Home and commercial loans come with a fixed interest rate (it does not vary during the term), a variable interest rate (it rises or falls during the loan term in accordance with a formula, usually the cash rate set by the Reserve Bank of Australia) or, sometimes, a combination of both. Interest rates are currently low in historical terms. Older readers will remember times when interest rates for home loans were in double digit figures. Some financial forecasters say interest rates may go lower, but who can predict the future. If you have a loan on You should get competent financial advice before doing so. The advantage is in that if, in the future the cycle turns and interest rates begin a phase of rises, you will be protected. Your low interest rate will be locked in, and not subject to any rise. An interest and expertise in all aspects of real estate is in at the core of our business. If you have any question about a sale, purchase or rental, or have a question on any real estate matter, feel free to contact me John Dunlop on 9744 2555 or call into our offices at Sunbury and Gisborne to talk about it.

which the interest charged is in at a variable rate then you should have a hard look at fixing it to a set rate.


Hugs for a family How are you going to persuade the kids to leave this, asks Carole Levy f the kids are in tow when checking out this property, expect them to respond enthusiastically because it has ‘fun’ and ‘room to romp’ written all over it. After a trip down the long, gravelled circular driveway past tall trees in a park-like setting, the property of about 1.6 hectares looks like a leisure resort. An in-ground, solar-heated pool and hot tub, skirted by a timber deck, is the first eyecatcher. This is (for the kids at least) followed up with a timber fort and swathes of grass on two levels with enough surface area for a footy match. Paddocks at the side and back are ready for ponies — or perhaps a mini-bike track. And an American barn with power and three roller doors is for serious storage or hobby stuff. The homestead-style house has crazy-paved verandahs front and back, a bonus in Aussie summers and the spot to share a glass of wine while taking in views of the Mount’s cross. Entry is directly into a skylit, carpeted loungedining room with a wood heater and splitsystem. The abutting kitchen has slate floor tiles, a two-tiered servery bench, timber cupboards,

walk-in pantry, dishwasher and Smeg underbench oven and electric cooktop. Three bedrooms are down carpeted hallways; there’s a separate toilet and the main bathroom has glossy black wall tiles and a timber vanity unit. At the end of one of the hallways is the main bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en suite, and a good-sized rumpus room with verandah access. A few minutes from Woodend’s centre, this is a property ready to give a family a warm howdydo.

Macedon Ranges Shire Council has contracted Tree Top Tower Hire Pty Ltd to manage its Vegetation Maintenance Program. As part of this program the street trees and powerlines are inspected regularly to ensure an uninterrupted power supply and a fire safe environment. Damage to items such as computers, televisions, video recorders, microwave ovens and other appliances containing electronics can also arise if trees contacting powerlines cause electricity supply interruptions. All vegetation maintenance work is required to be carried out in compliance with the Electricity Safety Act 2010 - Electric Line Clearance. These regulations stipulate a minimum safe clearance between trees and power-lines, plus a re-growth space, which will allow for re-growth of vegetation between scheduled trims. We have identified trees’ within the Kyneton and Gisborne townships that require trimming to ensure the safe distances are maintained. The tree works in your area will be carried out over the next three weeks and will be conducted in accordance with the Australian Standard for Pruning of Amenity Trees AS 4373 - 2007 This service will be undertaken only by trained and qualified tree clearing technicians. REMOVAL OF DEBRIS Debris from the clearing activity will be removed as soon as possible. If you have any inquiries regarding the above please contact Peter Jones at the Macedon Ranges Shire Council on 54219800. Jason Scholten Tree Top Tower Hire

MOTORING ●

Kia SUV is versatile and functional Alistair Kennedy road tests the latest version of the Sorento ia Sorento is the larger of two SUVs from the ambitious Korean importer. The smaller Sportage is aimed more at the youth and small family market while the seven-seat Sorento is effectively a crossover people mover with some off-road ability in the AWD variants. The latest version of the Sorento was launched here in September 2012. Although there were external changes, they didn’t change the overall look of the vehicle. In people mover mode the management of Sorento’s interior space is critical and the Kia designers have managed to juggle the various passenger/luggage permutations nicely. As is invariably the case with mid-sized seven-seaters the third row is best left to pre-teen children. The third row of seats folds flat to provide up to 1047 litres of luggage space with the centre seats in place but drops to 285 litres with all seats occupied. The back row seats are split 50/50 to allow some extra seating flexibility. Folding both rows of rear seats opens the rear up to a van-like capacity of 2052 litres.

K

The choice of two- or four-wheel drive is rapidly becoming the norm in the latest breed of SUVs, something that makes lots of sense because the majority of buyers neither want nor need drive to all four wheels. Kia Sorento comes with a choice of two engines, 3.5-litre V6 petrol and 2.2-litre turbodiesel. Previous criticisms of the Sorento’s ride and handling have been addressed with the use of ultra high-tensile steel contributing to an 18 per cent increase in torsional rigidity improving ride comfort, handling and crash protection. The seats are comfortable and the ergonomics for the driver are very good. On the road both the petrol and diesel versions are surprisingly spirited vehicles and hills and rapid overtaking are dispatched with ease. Kia Sorento is a neat and attractive SUV that offers plenty of options for a large family looking for a single vehicle that can handle a variety of tasks. Prices start at $37,490, not including government or dealer delivery charges.

Neat and attractive: The seven-seat Kia Sorento is a practical and affordable people mover crossover.

INBRIEF

Sunbury United, coached by Greg Czapnik, pictured, kicks off in FFV state league 3 north-west this weekend with a home game against North Sunshine Eagles. The match starts at 3pm on Saturday at Langama Park. United was paired with Preston Lions in the FFV Knock-Out Cup draw held last week. The fourth-round match will be played at Langama Park on Saturday, May 4, starting at 2pm. Preston Lions won the Victorian Premier League title in 2007 but have been on a steady decline since, sinking to state league 2 north-west.

Hall factor stokes Broadford coming back, so we should have a fairly solid side. The good part about it is the players are all local, we haven’t gone out and spent a heap on players from Melbourne.” And while he admits he hasn’t been training the house down over pre-season Hall says he’s fit and firing and hopes to once again slot bags of goals for the Kangaroos. “The body is all right,” he said. “To be honest I haven’t trained too hard for it but now the season’s here I’ve got a routine going and I’ve been going for runs to keep the belly down a bit. Hopefully the town gets behind us and we can do something.” Bray too is excited about the season ahead. “When I put my hand up for the coaching gig I asked Barry the question one night and he said he would come give us a hand,” he said. “It’s brilliant, it was just a question asked over a beer. The town and the club is abuzz. “We’ve lacked experience on the ground, so obviously with Barry and a few other senior blokes coming back it’s all balancing out pretty well. “The boys are moving the ball pretty well and they’ve got a lot of miles in their legs since October.”

LONG-suffering Broadford fans will start the season cheering in full voice as Barry Hall lines up for his old club against Lancefield on April 7. Harley Hammond Reserve has been buzzing since late last year, when Hall, who played his junior football for the Kangaroos, signed on the dotted line. Hall, pictured below, who played for Wangaratta last year, will play at least six Riddell District Football League matches for Broadford in 2013, balancing his commitments with Fox Footy. The six games will ensure he can play finals should Broadford make it. The signing is huge for the club, which has struggled on the field in recent times, finishing in the bottom four in the past two seasons. Hall, good mates with senior coach Aaron ‘Skip’ Bray, said he was stoked to come back to where it all began. “I’m very excited,” he said. “It’s good to come back to the club and give them a little bit back because they certainly helped with my career. “We’ve got a lot of older local players, my mates,
