Rob Knuckey Receives Highest Lions Club Award At Winchelsea Lions Club’s 60th Anniversary Celebration (more about that next week) Lion Rob Knuckey was surprised by being awarded the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award. The Melvin Jones Fellowship Award is the highestform of recognition from Lions International and embodies humanitarian ideas consistent with the nature and purpose of Lionism. The recipient of this award becomes a model of exemplary service to his club and community, something Rob has more than delivered in his time as a Lion. Neville Mawson had the honour of presenting this award to Rob, stating he is the longest serving current member of Winchelsea Lions, having contributed to the club by instigating and contributing to many projects and serving as office bearers numerous times, including President on a couple of occasions. In his acceptance speech Rob’s first comment was “I wondered why all the family was here!!” Being a passionate family man and pillar of our community, a well deserved Award. Congratulations Rob.

Litter is a burning issue Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) issued 12,000 litter fines in 2017-18 and the litter that annoyed Victorians most was the lit cigarette.


Pam Shaw

Member AAMT—Australian Association of Massage Therapists

Cigarettes are the most common litter and the type most commonly reported by the public.

Due to my beautiful man suddenly passing away two weeks ago, I have TUESDAYS 2:00—9:00PM decided to close my AT practice in Winchelsea. I would like to take this ONE BODY CHIROPRACTIC opportunity to thank the Winchelsea Community and all my CLINICclients over the last four to five years .

More than three quarters of litter reports to EPA involve cigarette butts tossed from vehicles, and more than half involved a cigarette that was still burning.

I will continueWinchelsea to operate my practice at Murray Street Health , 398 Health Funds Allied Receipts Available Murray st Colac. Please feel free to contact me for appointments APPOINTMENTS 0407 483in561 Colac. DEEP TISSUE, TRIGGER POINTS,

Other litter fines were for food packaging, drink containers and other small items. Litter contaminates the soil, chokes waterways and endangers wildlife, and a lit cigarette is a serious fire hazard.

21 Hesse Street


EPA’s litter reporting service gives the public a clear mechanism for reporting people who throw litter from a vehicle, by using the car’s registration number to track down the alleged offender. You can report littering at www.epa. or by calling 1300 EPA VIC (1300 372 842). It’s important to be willing to give evidence in court if the alleged offender challenges the fine, but if you get the details right, most of them just pay the fine. Your report should identify the car, describe the person, describe the litter and how it was disposed of, and the time and place where it happened.

Winchelsea Uniting Church 19th Art & Photography Show 2018 By Brian Keightley

With only three & a half months to go before the 19th Winchelsea Uniting Church Art & Photography Show, now’s the time to get inspired. As a lot of you would have already received your entry forms vie email or post, Peter Redding has sent out more than a hundred to past & present Artists & Photographers. If you are at all interested in having a go, please contact Peter on with your contact details and he will be only too pleased to shoot you off an entry form. You can also contact the committee by phoning either 0409 418 766 / 5267 2488 or 0459 066 056 / 5267 3162. You can also email either or both Peter or Jeanette – or Last year was a record in all aspects of the show, which is no mean feat. Record number of entries in both Art & Photography. Record number of sales (which pleased the Artists & Photographers no end). Record number of Sponsors, totalling the highest prize money offered to the participants. Record number of visitors throughout the weekend, all in all a wonderful weekend for Winchelsea. This year’s show will be held again at the Globe Theatre, Winchelsea over the Melbourne Cup Weekend – Friday 2nd of November until Monday 5th November. Opening Night & awards presentation will be held on the Friday, commencing at 7.30pm. Again, last year the opening night experienced record crowds, with quite a few of the works being sold, so it pays to get in early to view the wonderful works presented by both Artists & Photographers, local & from afar. All last year’s sponsors have again returned for this year show, which is wonderful news, so the prize money for the awards will stay the same. A very big thank you to all our Sponsors, and over the next Art and Photography reports we will name them all. Our guest judges for this year again like

For our Photography section, our judge this year is Tony Long. Tony is a life member of the Colac Camera Club. Recently retired, he worked as a photographer at Sovereign Hill for 31 years, managing the studio there for about the last 20 years. Tony has judged photography at Club level, National level and International level. In the past 12 months he has judged at Corio Bay Camera Club twice, plus Lismore, Skipton and Lal Lal photography shows.

all of our shows are very experienced in their fields, and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts. For Art we have Lynette Parrott. Lynette currently resides in Barongarook. She has trained over the years with the Gordon Tech in Art and Illustrating, and with an Art class at Forrest through Western District's TAFE. She also designs Australian native wildflower and wildlife greeting cards, and tote bags, aprons and purses in organic cotton. Lynette has outlets throughout the district and coast, and also at Montsalvat in Eltham, The Block Arcade in Melbourne, the Grampians and Alice Springs. She enjoys many varied mediums and paints and draws whatever touches her heart, and hopes in turn that it might speak to other hearts. Welcome aboard Lynette.

Tony also teaches basic digital photography at Colac U3A. He has no favorite subjects but does like black & white, and is thinking of starting up his dark room again. Welcome aboard Tony.

Local projects deliver stronger communities in Corangamite •

Applications for Round 4 of the Stronger Communities Programme are now open

The program will fund local projects to build social and community connections

The Government has committed up to $22.5 million under Round 4 of the program

Communities across Australia are set to share in $22.5 million to improve local infrastructure and provide essential community equipment with applications now open for Round 4 of the Stronger Communities Programme. Minister for Regional Development, Territories and Local Government John McVeigh said the program is aimed at funding projects that deliver social benefits and form part of the Coalition Government’s continuing commitment to strengthen communities across Australia. “Our local communities are the heart of this great country and the investment in local projects under the Stronger Communities Programme is about invigorating these communities and

ensuring their continued success,” Dr McVeigh said. “The program will fund small capital projects in each of the 150 federal electorates, which can range from upgrading the local community hall or sporting facility, building new bike paths, or providing essential equipment for the local SES. “These are the sorts of vital projects that bring our communities together, strengthen our social connections, build community participation and create vibrant and viable communities into the future.” Each electorate will receive $150,000 to allocate towards successful projects, with a maximum of 20 projects to be funded per electorate. Federal Member for Corangamite, Sarah Henderson MP said the additional investment for a fourth round of SCP would ensure that local decision making continues to play a decisive role in funding community building projects. “Our region has been very successful under previous rounds of the Stronger Communities Programme. A broad range of local projects have been

Fr Charles, Parish Priest Marg Bushell

St Thomas' Anglican Church

St John the Baptist Catholic Church More from Father Charles: Re the group attendance at the Proclaim Conference in Brisbane: Experimenting: One of the things that struck me very much at the Proclaim Conference is the need to keep trying bits and pieces new: experimenting. Not changing the core of the Mass or our faith in Jesus Christ. No! Rather, seeking new ways to keep our faith growing and alive. Last Sunday at Bannockburn we sang the Our Father in a form prepared by the Aboriginal people of the Diocese of Broome; same meaning, slightly different words and a new tune. Expect other things too. We’ve already started the 4pm Mass in Inverleigh on last Sundays. We are going to try a “Family” Mass at 4pm in Bannockburn, in addition to our 9am Mass: once a month to start: not sure which Sunday yet. We are talking about something for young people – but not sure yet. How would you like to experiment? What could you do to start something fresh? Let’s experiment together. God bless. Father Charles Mass will be celebrated at 12noon at St John’s on this coming Wednesday, 15th August. to honour of the Feast of the Assumption. All welcome. We continue to have 6pm Mass in the hall on Saturday’s so that we are all comfortable and importantly, warm during winter. This weekend is Catholic Care Sunday appeal donations will be accepted at Mass next Saturday. Families wishing to have their child or children Baptised can contact the Parish office at 52861230, and speak to Father Charles or leave a message on the phone and Father, or Dianne Ritchie will

Princes Highway West Upgrade: First section opens six months ahead of schedule The first section of the upgrade, between Deans Marsh Road, Winchelsea, to west of Armytage Road, has now been completed. Drivers are benefitting from the 100km speed limit on all four lanes of the highway, as well as: •

improved traffic flow in both directions

five upgraded intersections

a median between east and westbound lanes

dedicated left and right turn lanes into the side roads off the highway

flexible safety barriers lining the left side and centre median of the road.

The heavy stuff In July, we lifted six support beams to form a bridge over Birregurra Creek.

Colac entrance transformation continues We’re making big improvements to the entrance to Colac. Soon, we’ll award a contract to build a new bridge over Barongarook Creek. This 80-year-old bridge is nearing the end of its design life and needs to be replaced. We’re going to take it down and build a brand new one in its place. The Barongarook Creek bridge and the surrounding parkland are regularly used by Colac residents, so we’re working hard to minimise any impact.

These 32-metre-long beams weigh almost 54 tonnes. The bridge will safely accommodate a range of drivers—from logging, grain and dairy operators using heavy vehicles, to tourists heading to the Great Ocean Road and Victoria’s south west.

We’ll keep you informed of the planned works to minimise inconvenience as much as possible, as well as individually contact property owners closest to the project area. You can expect works on the bridge to begin in late 2018.

This bridge is one of five to be built. Another two bridges will be strengthened as part of the project.

Making progress We’ve undertaken extensive digging and earthworks, started bridgeworks and

relocated utility services. Between Armytage and Colac East, you’ll see the path the new road will take as our crews continue working onsite. We also started building a new roundabout at the Colac-Ballarat Road intersection. This roundabout will reduce vehicle speeds, making it safer and easier for drivers to choose a safe gap in traffic at the intersection.

Ongoing works during winter The best time to build roads is during warm, dry weather but we’re still making progress during the cooler, wetter months. This season, our crew will focus on: •

building bridges

drainage works

building the retaining wall through the cutting east of Colac

strengthening the bridge over the Geelong-Warrnambool railway line

pouring concrete for the bridges over the railway crossing

installing large drainage pipes.

We appreciate your ongoing patience. To carry out these works safely, you'll continue to notice changed traffic conditions. Plan your trip and allow for extra time, even if you regularly travel on these roads.

Stay informed We encourage you to get involved, speak with our project team and share your feedback. Keep an eye out for our upcoming pop-up sessions in the community.

Marvellous Magnesium! by Natalie White – Chiropractic Assistant at One Body Chiropractic

Magnesium is an essential mineral needed by nearly every cell in our body. It plays many important roles in the health of our bodies and our brains. Unfortunately there’s a really good chance that you are deficient in this abundant mineral as it is not often checked and therefore is overlooked. The benefits of magnesium in our diet are many and include: 1. Boosting Exercise Performance – During exercise, magnesium helps move blood sugar into your muscles and dispose of lactic acid, which builds up in muscles during exercise and causes pain. 2. Fights Depression – Low levels of magnesium have been linked to an increased risk of depression. 3. Benefits against Type 2 Diabetes – It is believed that up to 48% of diabetics have low levels of magnesium in their blood. This can impair insulin’s ability to keep blood sugars level and under control. 4. Lowering Blood Pressure – In a recent study, people who took 450 mg per day experienced a significant decrease in systolic and diastolic blood pressure (in people with high blood pressure) 5. Anti-inflammatory Benefits – Low magnesium intake has been linked to chronic inflammation, a major driver in aging, obesity and chronic disease.

6. Can help Prevent Migraines – In some encouraging studies it’s been found to prevent and even treat migraine headaches. 7. Reduce Insulin Resistance – Insulin resistance is one of the leading causes of type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome in our modern age. It results in an impaired ability of the muscle and liver cells to absorb sugar from the bloodstream. 8. Improve PMS Symptoms – Water retention, abdominal cramps, tiredness and irritability have been shown to be greatly reduced with increased magnesium intake in the diets of women of childbearing age. 9. Maintain normal muscle and nerve function -Magnesium has been known to have a calming effect on our nervous systems and even referred to as nature’s natural relaxant. The good news is that magnesium is readily available in our diets. Foods rich in magnesium include dark chocolate, avocados, nuts, legumes like lentils, beans, chickpeas etc, tofu, seeds including pumpkin and chia seeds, whole grains including buckwheat and quinoa, some fatty fish like salmon and mackerel, bananas and last of all, wonderful nutritionally dense leafy greens like kale, spinach and collard greens.

The best way by far to get the essential vitamins and minerals we need for our bodies to function well is from the foods we eat. Food can be medicine when used right or it can be slowly killing us. In this day and age, it is common to be deficient in one or more vitamins and minerals as we cope with the increasing pressures of life, drink too much alcohol, consume too much sugar, soft drinks and chemical laden foods. Making some changes to your diet or even if you need some extra help by adding a good quality supplement, could make all the difference to your everyday health and wellbeing. A great place to start is with a Naturopath to guide you. Here at One Body Chiropractic we want the best health for you. Chiropractic care looks after the connection between the brain and the body via the nervous system. Any interference to this communication (a subluxation of the spinal bones or minor misalignment) affects the body’s ability to adapt, heal and regulate, and reduces the potential of the body to thrive. A regular adjustment keeps our body and brain functioning well. And with adequate levels of magnesium in our diets, who knows how good you could actually feel?!

Winchelsea Football Netball Club

Netball News We travelled this week to face the might on Werribee on the netball courts. Unfortunately they showed their usual form across the 5 grades they fielded and we didn’t manage a win, however we definitely showed some improvement in the matches this time around.

A Grade Werribee 65 def Winchelsea 23

It was always going to be a tough day going up against the height of Werribee’s defence without our dominant goaler in Eliza Cole. Werribee came out the blocks very strong taking the first quarter by 15 goals, the injection of some height into the goal circle with through Leah Mathison settled us a bit in the second but Werribee hit back hard in the second after to run away with the game. Defensively, Steph Hillman & Sandi Carroll worked hard, and the turnovers fell, but our attack struggled to penetrate Werribee’s solid defence. Casey Carroll ran hard through WA but our structures fell apart easily. One to forget as we look forward to the final round of the home and away season. Best Players: Stephanie Hillman, Sandi Caroll & Casey Carroll Goals: Kendall Carracher 13, Leah Mathison 10

B Grade Werribee 53 def Winchelsea 41

With some injuries through the week and another on eon the day facing top placed Werribee proved too much for our B Grade side. We

were right in the game for a quarter and a half but a run by Werribee late in the second gave them the confidence to break the game open. Angie Mawson controlled the game through centre in the first half breaking through Werribee’s press style defence to deliver accurately to our goalers. The defensive combination of Leah Mathison and Bronte Middleton really took advantage of any lapses in concentration by Werribee, picking off intercepts and rebounding strong. Belinda Czerniawski converted with accuracy shooting a strong 35 goals. Best: Angie Mawson, Leah Mathison & Bronte Middleton Goals: Belinda Czerniawski 35, Emma Noble 6

C Grade Werribee 48 def Winchelsea 21

It has been a tough couple of weeks for our C Grade side facing 1st last week and 3rd this week. Werribee came out the blocks extremely strong in the first quarter taking charge of the game with an eleven goal lead. We consolidated in the second quarter to only allow a 3 goal deficit but they put the foot down again in the second half and took a convincing win. There were passages of play where we showed great improvement on earlier in the season but Werribee’s strong physical defence made it very difficult for us to move the ball into our goal circle. The defensive efforts of Abbey Todd, Danielle Kuchenemeister and Kia Orchard made Werribee work for their scores but it wasn’t enough to keep the margin in check. Best Players: Abbey Todd,

Danielle Kuchenmeister & Nakia Orchard Goals: Lauren McAuley 14, Courtney Gregg 7

D Grade Werribee 46 def Winchelsea 21

Werribee proved again too strong in the D Grade game with their consistent four quarters of netball. Our girls however, also managed to be quite consistent in their game but couldn’t convert enough opportunities to put score board pressure on Werribee. The midcourt defensive pressure of Danielle Caroll forced balls into the Werribee goal circle and allowed Brianna Carpenter to pick off a lot of intercepts this week which somewhat limited the scoring opportunities of Werribee. Brittany Fox worked tireless in wing attack to break through Werribee’s press style defence and deliver to our goalers. A good effort by the girls against a high quality side. Goals: Emily Steed 10, Lesley Mathison 11 Best: Brianna Carpenter, Danielle Caroll and Brittany Fox

17 & Under Werribee 34 def Winchelsea 23

A poor start by the girls this week had Werribee 7 goals up at the half time break. A strong resurgence in the early part of the third quarter had us looking like making a big comeback but sadly Werribee regrouped and finished off the game strong. continues Page 21

Tuesday 14 August 2018

continues from Page 20

Our young under 15 players benefited this week from not having a game beforehand and showed their exceptional talent at both ends of the court with Laura Robertson combining well with Emily Steed in the goal circle and Hayley Steed provides some great intercepts down the defensive end. This confirms that finals will not be on the agenda for the girls this year but we hope they finish off well next week ready for an injury free and strong 2019. Best: Laura Robertson, Hayley Steed and Emily Steed Goals: Emily Steed 5, Laura Robertson 18

Textile art exhibition at Tarndie • • • •

Lincoln: Truth and Fabrications Textile art exhibition at historic woolgrowing farm until 8 October $5 entry Tarndie, 37 Roseneath Road, Warncoort – (03) 5233 6241 –

An 1850s Ciderhouse on a woolgrowing farm has been transformed into a freshly discovered treasure trove of Civil War artefacts. The Ciderhouse at historic “Tarndwarncoort” in Warncoort was built 5 years before the American Civil War began by ancestors of the current owners as an adjunct to their woolgrowing pursuits. Geelong based textile artist, Andrew Delaney, has created a range of pieces using various textiles and props to portray stories of war and its human impact. Tarndwarncoort – known by its woollen

Help shape the Artisanal Agriculture and Premium Food program Victorian artisanal agriculture and premium food producers are invited to participate in an online survey to help shape the Victorian Government’s Artisanal Agriculture and Premium Food program. The survey will help inform the design and implementation of activities to support Victoria’s artisanal agriculture and premium food sector. The survey provides an opportunity for all artisan food producers in Victoria to have their voices heard, and provide information about their needs, challenges, opportunities and aspirations. The survey will ask producers questions such as: •

What are the most pressing needs for your business?


What values are important for your business?

What will help you achieve your aspirations?

Departmental spokesperson, Julie Simons said that the survey gave all artisanal agriculture and premium food producers a platform to help shape government support for the sector. “Victoria’s producers are doing remarkable and innovative things – we want to support them so they can achieve even more.” The Minister for Agriculture, Jaala Pulford launched the $2 million Artisanal Agriculture and Premium Food Program in May this year. The program will help increase market opportunities for high-quality, high-value produce and strengthen Victoria’s regional food offerings. The survey will close Sunday 26 August. To complete the survey, learn more about the Artisanal Agriculture and Premium Food program, and register for updates, visit artisanag

collected, curated and composed? Where is the truth of the work amongst the fabrication? The patina of age, the ragged, discoloured threads and the perceived decay of objects are testimony to Andrew’s artistic vision and his virtuosity as textile artist.

Andrew Delaney’s brilliance as textile artist and illusionist is on full display in the fascinating and truly remarkable exhibition Lincoln: Truth and Fabrications.

In talking about his art, Andrew says: “What I hope to do and share is my love of things that some may consider morbid or a little dark. Beautiful things surround us, but not everything has to be pretty and bright to possess its splendour. The art I make tells us that time is moving on and the glory days of our youth are indeed behind us.”

Andrew creates artworks of immense power and intensity which explore ideas of life’s vulnerabilities and human mortality. Objects and artefacts range from a frayed and faded flag, a battered army uniform, doll families and doll’s houses, hope chests, portraits and collections of smaller, intimately displayed ephemera. Viewers are invited to reflect on the transience of life and the inevitable effect of time passing, whilst at the same time marvelling at the beauty and skill of the work on display. As well, this exhibition plays with the viewer, inviting questions of reality and illusion. Have these works been

Pilot program helps compliance soar

A pilot project between Environment Protection Authority (EPA) and Surf Coast Shire is helping to keep tradies tidy at building sites. Surf Coast Officer for the Protection of the Local Environment Rob Armstrong is one of 11 officers who work with 13 councils across the state to address lower-risk environmental issues, such as dust, odour, noise, illegal dumping, littering and stormwater pollution. The project has been extended to 31 July 2019. Mr Armstrong said following reports of wind-blown litter from new developments, he started a proactive project with council to bring attention to building site rubbish. “Residents who had moved to the area because of its environmental appeal were reporting rubbish, including styrofoam blocks, plastic bottles, coffee cups, plastic strapping tape and cement bags, being blown about,” he said. “They were concerned about this material getting into the ocean and styrofoam especially can break down into small particles which are difficult to clean up. “With strong wind gusts especially

prevalent in winter it was important to stop the litter at its source.” Surf Coast Shire Council and EPA sent a letter to more than 15 builders explaining the problem, what sites could do to improve their litter management and the potential penalties which could be imposed if they didn’t clean up their act. “I then inspected more than 20 sites mainly in Torquay, and a few in Anglesea and Winchelsea, and there has been a fairly positive response to our letter and clean up suggestions,” Mr Armstrong said. “I also spoke with site supervisors to encourage them to get skip bins emptied more regularly, so overflowing material can’t be blown away as easily. “I think there’s been an improvement since and I haven’t had to speak to the same site twice, which is great.” Mr Armstrong said evidence of continued littering would result in Surf Coast Shire Council issuing a Litter Abatement Notice, which stays on the builder’s file for three years and could lead to a fine. He thanked Surf Coast residents for their vigilance on local pollution and encouraged people to report their concerns about building site litter to council on 5261 0600 or to the EPA 24-hour pollution hotline 1300 EPA VIC (1300 372 842). Businesses can keep up-to-date on their environmental responsibilities at epa.vic.

Victoria concludes precautionary surveillance for varroa mite detection Agriculture Victoria’s varroa mite surveillance has concluded six weeks after the bee parasite was detected in cargo at the Port of Melbourne that had been unloaded from a ship. The State Quarantine Response Team, comprising of members of the beekeeping community, worked alongside Agriculture Victoria’s Incident Management Team (IMT) to conduct bee hive surveillance following the detection. The team conducted four rounds of surveillance in every known hive within a two-kilometre radius of the Port of Melbourne detection. With no further detections of varroa mite, Agriculture Victoria has today stood down its IMT.

Blues Bistro News: Last Thursday evening saw the Club host a “Parma for a Farmer” night with $493.00 raised for the “Buy a Bale “Foundation. A small donation from every Parma/Parmi sold on the night. This will continue for the next 2 weeks – so if you couldn’t make it last week you still have an opportunity to come along and contribute to this cause. Great to see patrons and footballers/ netballers putting their change into the big jar whether they had a Parma or not! As usual the great community that is Winchelsea & surrounds has rallied to contribute to what many feel is a very worthy cause. Well done everyone concerned.
