Getting wet and being cold was a small


sacrifice at every Anzac Day service and
memorial opening in Moorabool on
Saturday and Sunday.
Crowds flocked to the services which saw
generations of families attend together.
A dawn service started off the day in
Bacchus Marsh, followed by a memorial
unveiling in Bungaree, a service at
Balliang, a march in Ballan, with a service
at Yendon and Blackwood. The local
football derby at Bacchus Marsh against
Darley had a pre Anzac service in the
pouring rain. A memorial unveiling at
Navigators and the march in Bacchus
Marsh took place the previous week.
Pictured 92 year old Ron Trigg helped
to unveil a memorial at Bungaree with a
large crowd of close to 300 people
sharing the experience.

Council CEO Rob Croxford explained that ratepayers

be significant savings in the garbage service line item
which is reducing by 2.5 per cent.

Direct Farmers Market

THIS WEEKS SPECIALS

Market keeps on growing


By Jessica Howard
The Ballan Farmers Market continues
to kick goals after the third successive
month of near record numbers.
With 32 stalls and 803 attendees, the
April event marked one of the best efforts in the markets four-year history.

Chair of Ballan Farmers Market John


Fabre (pictured) said people were choosing to come to the area from as far as
metropolitan Melbourne and beyond.

We are consistently being told that


our friendly, welcoming behaviour
creates a distinctive atmosphere which
has become our signature, he said.
Every person involved with the Bal-

lan Farmers Market graciously volunteer their time and effort, and the result
is an outstanding achievement. It also
means we can continue to generously
give back to community organisations.

Held on the second Saturday of each


month, the community based and
volunteer-run event offers award winning and popular produce from local
venders such as Millbrook Chocolates,
Moorabool Valley Wild Flowers and
Peregrine Ridge Wines, just to name a
few.

Mr Fabre said preparation for next


months market had already begun,
with the committee getting ready for a
Mothers Day event to be held on May 9.

We are gearing up to make this the


best we can possibly deliver. We want
to make this one special so we thought
lets make something that all of Ballan
businesses can benefit from, he said.
If we can attract all the businesses in
the area we think the market will flow
through the whole town. People can
attend the market, walk up the main
street, shop at and browse all the boutique local businesses too. That way, the
whole town is involved.

The Mothers Day Farmers Market will


be held on Saturday 9 May at Mill Cottage, 96 Inglis Street Ballan. For more

VICSES help their neighbour


By Kate Taylor
Bacchus
Marshs
State
Emergency Services unit
has sent help for the cleanup effort in New South
Wales following devastating
storms.
A member of the local unit
was sent last week as part
of a taskforce comprising 50
volunteers from Victoria.

The
volunteers
in
this task force are from
numerous VICSES Units
across the State, explained
Bacchus Marsh SES Deputy
Controller Operations Bill
Robson.
The task force deployed
into areas hit by the storm
worked in the area until last
Sunday 26 April, he said.
The volunteers will be

assisting exhausted NSWSES


crews who have been on the
ground responding to calls
for more than 48 hours.
The
tasks
involved
removing fallen trees from
homes and vehicles, as
well as tarping damaged
rooves and responding to
flood related incidents as
required.
NSWSES have received a

massive 10,000 requests for


assistance at this stage, with
that figure continuing to
climb.
They have also responded
to more than 80 rescues
of people trapped in
floodwaters.
NSWSES volunteers have
assisted VICSES in the past
and now its our turn to
lend a hand to the people of
NSW.

smash
appeal
record
By Jessica Howard
Peoples tummies werent
the only things full over the
Easter period, as collection
tins for the Good Friday Appeal tallied almost $30,000
across the Bacchus Marsh
area.
Volunteers from across the
district spent Good Friday
rattling their cans and taking donations, resulting in a
total of $27,094 for the Royal
Childrens Hospital.
Contributing to the success
was Bacchus Marsh Bowling
Club, whose individual fundraiser added $2,353 to the
total figure.
Lions Club of Bacchus
Marsh members, together
with family, also continue
to be heavily involved in the
success of the appeal.
Bacchus Marsh Lions Club

member, David Atterbury


said the success of the local
appeal could be credited to
the stalwart volunteers who
never fail to turn up each
Good Friday.

A big thankyou to all who


worked as volunteers and
those generous people who
helped fill the collection
cans from their pockets and
purses, he said.

Growing support from local businesses, who allow


Good Friday Appeal purple
welby collection cans on
their counters, also continue
to contribute to the success
of the appeal of Bacchus
Marsh.

The Lions Club of Bacchus


Marsh were pleased with the
success of the 2015 appeal,
which smashed last years
efforts by over $2,500.

Dont shoot the messenger!

By Kate Taylor

Being a wedding celebrant


is one thing; conducting divorce ceremonies is a completely different circle of
comedians.
Genevieve Messenger has
seen it all having conducted everything from symbolic, private divorce ceremonies at her Blackwood
home; to a divorce ceremony
with a stand-up comedian in
the middle of a circle of her
comedian friends while she
vented her anger at her former husband.
That one was hilarious, but
also sad and happy at the
same time. Usually though
they are very symbolic, very
powerful ceremonies about
letting go and moving on,
Ms Messenger explained.
Despite the growing popularity of divorce parties, its
usually less of a party affair
and more a way of helping
people move through the
pain of a divorce leaving them open to a second
chance at love.
Its an idea called loving it
forward and I think that it
doesnt matter how old you
are, and it doesnt matter
how long ago a divorce was,
everyone deserves a second
chance at love.
And its not just divorce and
wedding ceremonies for
the past 15 years Ms Messenger has also been conducting

funeral, naming, and commitment ceremonies.


With more than 500 wedding ceremonies under her
belt, its the creative and
unique ceremonies that Ms
Messenger excels at including using Blackwood as
a focus for her events.
I love to encourage green
weddings and a sustainable
future, and that involves letting couples know they can
cycle on a bicycle built for
two or even walk to the ceremony. I had a very smooth
groom jump off a penny
farthing once in a wedding
in Trentham, and the brides
father was riding a bicycle
built for two with the bride
on the back. It was magic.
The brides dress was preloved and bought on eBay
and it was catered for by a
local company that sourced
local foods.
Since having enough of
the city life and moving
to Blackwood in 2008, Ms
Messenger has fallen in love
with the peace, the nature,
and the community.
I love doing local weddings, in Blackwood and
Trentham especially, and
Ive recently done my Masters in Screen Writing I

mantic comedy involving a
woman doing weddings.

Ms Messenger is now writing a book on how to put


together personal wedding
vows and how to create the

alchemy that gives a ceremony the X-factor.


My dad was one of the
first celebrants in Australia,
and he wrote a book on the
history of celebrancy and a

Power to protect
brought forward
By Kate Taylor

An election promise by Geoff Howard to place a pedestrian crossing in Ballan lingers on how much money the State
Government will have in the 2015/16 budget. Photo Helen Tatchell

Promise of crossing depends on budget

By Kate Taylor
A
pedestrian
crossing
promised for Ballan is expected to be built within the
next financial year.
Member for Buninyong
Geoff Howard made a commitment to build the crossing during last years state

election campaign.
He was joined by future
Roads Minister Luke Donnellan in Ballan last August
to make the announcement.
This commitment by Labor for a pedestrian crossing
and lights will mean better
road safety for Ballan, on
a road which 3700 vehicles

travel on every day, Mr


Howard said at the event.
Mr Howard said that now, a
design for the crossing is being developed.
When the final site has
been arranged and the project has been fully costed,
then presumably it will be
able to progress through as

long as there is money in the


budget - and I presume there
will be.
My expectation is it will
go ahead in the next financial year but it still has to
go through that final funding process and be allocated out of the state budget
allocations.

Councils now have increased powers when it


comes to puppy farms.
The changes were set by
the previous Liberal Government to come into effect
on July 1 this year, but have
now been brought forward.
The legislation now provides additional protection
for animals kept for breeding including placing greater onus on domestic animal
businesses to register breeding dogs and cats with an
applicable organisation or
council; providing councils
with greater flexibility to
issue lifelong animal identification; requiring councils
to refuse re-registration of
a domestic animal business
if the person who owns or
conducts the business has
been found guilty of animal
cruelty in the past 10 years.
It also gives councils

The Bacchus Marsh Medical Centre and The Elms Family Medical
Centre would like to remind their patients that this time of
year is when you should have your annual immunisation against

with chronic illness are particularly at risk from this illness.

registration or renewal, on
the grounds that the person
who owns or runs the business has been found guilty
of cruelty to animals.
Bringing
forward
the
changes means that the
timing now coincides with
the registration period for
dogs, cats and domestic
animal businesses with local
councils.
Further changes requiring
pet shop owners to make
and keep records in relation to every cat or dog sold
are scheduled for July 1 this
year.
Meanwhile, the Government will provide the
RSPCA with additional
resources to tackle puppy
farms and toughen up their
inspectorate powers, limit
breeding dogs to five litters,
reinstate mandatory breeding vet checks and require
pet stores to only sell puppies supplied by a registered
breeder or animal shelter.

Member for Buninyong


Geoff Howard has defended
going on holiday in the wake
of the Fiskville crisis.
A number of sources contacted The Moorabool News
saying Mr Howard had gone
on holidays in Anglesea
while discussions were taking place about the 70 job
losses occurring at the CFA

training college.
Mr Howard said he was
angry his holiday had been
raised as an issue, saying it
had been pre-booked.
It was school holidays, I
had organised for the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of that first week to take
my family camping to Anglesea, he said.
Mr Howard did attend a
meeting on the following

Friday, including Moorabool


Shire Council and the CFA.
There are challenges for us
all in terms of Fiskville and
the employment of the staff,
he said.
Mr Howard said that the
state government is continuing negotiations to find a
suitable site within Moorabool to build a new training
college.

Calls to
WAKE UP GEOFF!
By Kate Taylor
As locals continue to deal
with the aftermath of the
closure of the Fiskville
Training College, member
for Buninyong Geoff Howard, has defended himself
in response to criticisms that
he has not been active in the
area on the issue.
Fiskville staff and CFA
members expressed anger at
a recent meeting, saying that
Mr Howard had only been
to visit Fiskville once during
the crisis in the lead-up to
the closure.
I last visited Fiskville on its
last full day of operation,
Mr Howard said.

I also spoke with members


of the Ballan CFA at the Ballan Autumn Festival and I
had previously encouraged
Moorabool Shire to make a
submission to the Fiskville
parliamentary inquiry concerning the future of the
facility and its impact on the
local community.
I of course have visited
Fiskville on many earlier
occasions.

Mr Howard added that on


Tuesday 31 March he joined
the Emergency Services
Minister in discussions with
the Mayor of Moorabool
Shire, the CEO and other
council
representatives
along with community leaders from the Ballan area to
discuss the way forward.
I will continue to do all
I can to see Fiskville and
CFA staff and volunteers
supported.

The Moorabool News asked


Mr Howard if he believes
that a new facility will definitely be built in Moorabool,
and if he had any idea on
timeframes or budget.
I am keen to secure support for an alternative train-

ing facility in the Ballan area


as soon as possible.
And on the question of
whether Mr Howard believes that Fiskville should
have been closed when it
was?
The CFA management has
a responsibility to ensure
the ongoing safety of firefighters and staff working at
Fiskville. The results of the
tests which were provided to
them showed that this could
not be guaranteed. I therefore accept their decision.
In response to questions
about his role in terms of
the job losses suffered at
Fiskville, Mr Howard said he
has had discussions with the
Minister for Regional Development and departmental
staff at Regional Development Victoria about the opportunities for economic development and employment
in the Ballan region.
Its critical that the state
government,
Moorabool
Shire and local business
continue to work closely to
support those workers affected and the broader Ballan community.

It depends what percentage of your bill the garbage


charge is.
Mr Croxford explained that
the proposed budget has
a Capital Works Program
of $15.2 million - one of the
largest the shire has had in
many years.
Weve got the Halletts Way
Western route extension
with $3.2 million, part of an
overall $10 million project,
the Darley hub $3.7 million
project which is part of a $4
million project, and the Darley sports and community
pavilion which is $700,000
and they will help solve a
shortage of infrastructure
for traffic, early years learning and sporting facilities.
He said that council has
also taken $1 million out of
its operating costs for this
and the next financial years,
through seeking efficiencies
and natural attrition.
Weve absolutely squeezed
everything in order to get
$1 million in new initiatives
that we believe the community needs.
Weve looked at every line
item of expenditure and
asked if it is the lowest it can
be.
At the special meeting of

council, East Ward Councillor John Spain raised


concerns that the meeting
for councillors to formally
adopt the budget has been
scheduled for directly after
the meeting where councillors will hear budget submissions from the public.
He explained that members
of the public will have 28
days to make submissions,
and then they will have the
opportunity to speak at the
council meeting about their
submission but councillors
will vote on adopting the
budget the same night.
The tight timeframe is because the state government
wants all of the budgets in
by a certain date, and previously weve had a couple of
days between hearing the
submissions and voting on
the budget, he said.
We dont want to pay lipservice to submissions, we
want to listen to what people
are saying.
But we can always call a
special meeting to consider
things if there is a lot of interest in the budget.
Cr Spain said he hopes to
get lots of submissions from
residents and ratepayers.
Meanwhile, Mayor Paul
Tatchell spoke about the
five per cent bill increase for

ratepayers.
The increase is because of
CPI, and because its an infrastructure budget with a
lot of roadworks.
Unfortunately our infrastructure is that far behind
that we have to keep investing in it or well be in even
more strife into the future.
Can Moorabool ratepayers
afford the burden of a five
per cent increase?
I dont think anyone can;
the reality is were putting
the cost of enormous growth
on the back of the ratepayer.
When people dissect the
budget theyll call their local
members to ask whats going on. We need more funding from state and federal
government.
Mayor Tatchell said that he
is happy to have a budget
public meeting if people
want one.
I want to hear their input.
Details on where to view
the budget and how to make
a submission is available on
Page 9 of The Moorabool
News.
Next week: details on what
council is spending your
money on, how much is being borrowed, and councillors opinions on the budget.

CRUISING

Reserve surfaces for


first home game
By Kate Taylor
The new Ballan footy oval
surface has been given the
nod of approval.
Ballan and Bungaree were
the first teams to test the new
surface when they played
their Round two clash in the
CHFL.
Ballan Football Netball
Club President Billy Smith
said the ground was in terrific condition for the game.
Well done to the Sports
and Recreation unit at council for getting the ground up
and ready for the first home
game of the season for Ballan, and for finding us an al-

ternative training facility to


use while the work was being done. The ground was in
excellent condition for that
game, Mr Smith said.
Works included re-shaping
the oval to promote and encourage greater efficiency of
water run-off; installing an
extensive sub surface drainage system to moderate the
water table; and the establishment of turf to improve
the year round condition
of the sportsground for all
users.
Sport and Recreation Victoria Country Football Netball
Program provided $55,000
to help fund the project and
council injected $45,000.

Mayor Paul Tatchell said the


ground surface preparation
was a credit to all involved.
With a growing population in Ballan, there is increased demand for usage of
the reserve, so these works
will cater for that extra use,
Cr. Tatchell said.
The ground has been
handed over to the Ballan
Recreation Reserve Committee of Management for
ongoing maintenance and
management.
To complete the project, installation of a cricket wicket
is planned for after the last
home game of the football
season.

Education needed
for drug prevention
By Kate Taylor
As use of the drug ice spikes in Moorabool, the issue of
keeping local kids safe and educated has become a hot topic
for discussion.
Moorabool Shire Council Mayor Paul Tatchell called on
schools to introduce graphic drug education to students at a
younger age primary school.
I think we start too late when were educating kids on the
problems of the drug, I think it should be talked about even
as young as primary school. I think that education on drugs
is usually at a time when theyre most vulnerable so lets get
them before they become vulnerable. We hide the cause and
effect of drugs from teenagers, he said.
We live our lives as products of our environment so at the
most theres no doubt that young people learn their code at
primary school and thats usually carried forward. They may
have young parents that take drugs, so they become products
of their environment.
That 10-year-old in primary school is only a couple of years
away from being liable to end up in hospital or picked up in
the street. If were fair dinkum, and I doubt we are, we have
to make that tough call and get to these kids earlier and show
them the graphic effect of what drugs do.
He argued that it is parents who do not want their children
exposed to drug education at such a young age.
These parents say my kids a good kid, why would I want
to expose them to drugs? But drugs dont choose victims. It
has nothing to do with rich kids, poor kids, well educated
kids theyve all got drug problems.

THE PRINCIPAL

Bacchus Marsh Grammar Principal Andrew Neal


however said there is no research evidence to suggest
that making things graphic at a young age can improve
students resilience to the use of illicit drugs.
This isnt my area of expertise, but my last reading of
the literature on the matter suggested that introducing
graphic information at a young age may be counterproductive - it desensitises people.
I think we have a very well-balanced approach that
commences at an early age, it looks to give students
a number of things; to ensure that students have
information, to ensure that students are aware of the
whole issues of side effects, but more importantly it asks
the question of what factors would lead to any individual
partaking in illegal drugs and what factors would lead to
students taking an illegal drug like ice which has such
horrific consequences?

He explained that the school has a broad-based health


program that commences in the primary school and
continues through until the end of Year 10 and in that
program, issues revolving around consumption of both
legal and illicit drugs are considered.

We explain the notion of what a drug is, and the


beneficial uses of drugs, and the need for caution in using
any substance.

We want to work on resiliency to protect people against


being involved in illicit drug use of any kind. The reality
is, what is it that promotes a healthy mind and body that
doesnt need to go and find it, therefore its not an issue
thats what we aim for in our education program.
Giving them a graphic blow-by-blow account of what
happens when you partake in ice if you havent put
in resilience factors to strengthen kids psychological
resistance to those things, in some cases you might make
the situation worse.

THE POLICE

Bacchus Marshs Leading Senior Constable Jim Ross


works with local kids in a number of programs, and said
that its not just about educating kids but families, parents
and grandparents about the overall dangers of all drugs,
not just ice.
Its about choice, making the right choice, its about peer
pressure and not being pressured into doing things that
they may have a gut feeling is wrong, and if young people
were more well-informed in relation to the dangers of
any drug then their decision making may be further
assisted in the very dangerous risk they do take in taking
methamphetamines and other drugs.
If parents are informed and educated, then they can
speak at a primary school age to their children about
how dangerous drugs are, and it just gives them more
information the more information they have, the better
decisions they make for themselves.

But youve got to be very mindful and careful speaking


to primary school aged children as they can become
desensitised and I certainly dont think that just parading
pictures of the addiction of what it can do would be
helpful because young kids at that age, theyre probably
more likely to remember the graphic pictures and not
actually what youre trying to educate them on.
And when is the best time to start educating kids on
drugs?
As soon as they can understand; the sooner the better.

Snr Constable Ross will be holding a drug education


forum at the Bacchus Marsh Public Hall on Thursday 28
May, which will be advertised in the Moorabool News
closer to the date.

He is also forming an action group of community leaders,


business leaders, and health services to move forward on
the drugs issue as a community.

THE MAYOR

Mayor Tatchell agreed the causes of drug taking need to

be looked at as well.

We have one of the lowest rates of kids leaving school

before Year 10, in Bacchus Marsh, but we have one of the


highest rates of teen pregnancy and lowest rates of people
completing Year 12.

If we dont get a child to work that leaves school in

Year 10, the isolation of living in the country leaves them

vulnerable, and by the third or fourth year when they get


their license, then the fact they havent got a job means

they havent got a car so we lose them out of the system


as contributors.

He said that one of the solutions could be reducing the

age of being eligible for a license if the person is using it


to drive to work.

Solution-wise, we need to find an interest that gets them

back to work, we need to make public transport more


available for these young people, and we may have to

lower the license age. If you do those things, then kids


wont be sitting around disillusioned by their prospects
into the future and it takes away that one component for
the need for stimulation.

Proudly Supported by

Forum to
address drug
issues

By Kate Taylor

As the ice epidemic spreads


its grip across Moorabool,
one local is doing all he can
to help deal with the crisis.
Leading Senior Constable
Jim Ross has worked with
young people in Moorabool
for years, but an upcoming
drug forum to be held in
Bacchus Marsh is not just
aimed at the young.
Its for everyone aged 13 to
63; the point is, drugs and
not just Ice arent just a
problem for young people,
he said.
The forum, to be held on
Thursday 28 May at the
Bacchus Marsh Town Hall
from 7pm, is set to be an eyeopener for some, as well as
an informative session.
Were asking people to
send in questions that they
would like covered at the
forum we can develop the
presentation around that.
Well also cover the
drug addiction signs and
symptoms, the health aspect,
also the way forward.
That way forward includes a
number of projects currently
being worked on that locals
can be involved with.
There is a lot happening,
and it takes people and the
community to do that so Im
providing an opportunity
for the community to sit
around the table and start
to come up with initiatives,
strategies and plans to put in
place to tackle not just the Ice
problem but drug addiction

problems.
The local Drug Action
Group, which will be further
developed following the
drug forum, is a key part of
the fight against drugs.
Ive got the Mayor, and
Djerriwarrh Health Services
CEO Bruce Marshall on
board, as well as local
businesses like Cook Homes,
and local churches.
One thing that has increased
conversation about drugs
is the recent story featuring
Bacchus Marsh on Channel
Nine show 60 Minutes.
It got people talking
both positive and negative
regarding the story, however
it did get people talking
about drug addiction.
One of the speakers at Snr
Constable Ross drug forum
will be former Carlton and
Essendon footballer Glenn
Manton from Outside the
Locker Room.
Its an organisation that is
aimed at young people, and
hell be a guest speaker.
Meanwhile, building the
Drug Action Group with
interested
people
from
the drug forum is about
pro-actively involving the
community to take steps
forward.
Its for people that want to
do something, but are not
too sure what.
Bookings are not required
to attend the drug forum,
however arriving early may
be a good idea as the two
previous forums have drawn
more than 200 people.

A significant symbol

By Jessica Howard

A century on from the First


World War, the infamous
red poppy is more evocative
than ever.
Close to 80 Ballan seniors
gathered in the Ballan Senior
Citizen Centre last Thursday,
where they laid poppies on a
memorial board, symbolising the hundreds of servicemen and women from the
area who served, and died,
in the war.

Hand-knitted by the women of the senior citizens club,


the poppies were placed
alongside 26 wooden crosses
hand-made and painted by
the Ballan Mens Shed.
Ballan
Senior
Citizens
president, Ron Callander
said months of preparation
had gone in to the service
through working bees and
arts and craft classes.
The ladies met for a few
months to make the collec-

tion of crocheted poppies


and the Mens Shed spent a
whole day making the crosses, which weve attached
the poppies to and theyve
turned out really great, he
said.
The centre fell silent as The
Last Post played, followed
by Moorabool Shire Mayor,
Cr Paul Tatchell calling the
names of soldiers from the
district as members placed
a poppy on the board of
remembrance.

Letters to the Editor

TOM

Dear Editor,
A Senate select committee
on wind turbines was established recently to enquire
into and report on the application of regulatory governance and economic impact
of wind turbines. The first
public hearing was held in
Portland on 30 March and
was very well attended. To
their credit, submissions
were received from the Glenelg Shire Council, the Ararat Rural City Council and
the Pyrenees Shire Council.
All the representatives gave
us a good idea of the problems associated with the expectations the present Victorian Labor Government has
of local councils, including
the fact that, proper controls
and monitoring of the wind
energy facilities were now
the Shires responsibility
and that would come at a
cost. The expense of paying
independent professionals,
expert in their fields appeared daunting, but if these
measures were not carried
out, who knows what damage could be done regarding
non-compliance by the wind
energy companies?
So far no submission from
the Moorabool Shire to the
enquiry has appeared on the
Parliamentary web site. It is
very important that the rate
payers are represented in a
fair and balanced way as in
the end it is the ratepayers
who foot the bill.
Angela Kearns

Dear Editor,
The men and women who
served in the Australian Imperial Force were ordinary
Australians. They volunteered to fight in the service
of the British Empire and
over the four years of war
came to be admired for their
performance on the battlefields of Gallipoli and the
Middle East to the Western
Front.
The current focus of the
Anzac Centenary 20142018
national programme is the
Gallipoli campaign; from
next year, attention will turn
to the Western Front and the
Middle East.
During the Anzac Centenary, we also commemorate
a century of service, encompassing all wars, conflicts
and peace operations in
which Australia has been
involved.
The Anzac Centenary national programme aims to
give Australians the opportunity to honour the service
and sacrifice of all those
who have worn our nations
uniform, including the more
than 102,000 who have lost
their lives.
To help local communities
learn more about our wartime history, the Australian
Government is supporting
a range of commemorative,
educational and cultural
initiatives through programmes such as the Anzac
Centenary Local Grants Program (ACLGP) and the Anzac Centenary Public Fund
(ACPF).

The ACLGP was created to


encourage communities to
undertake their own Anzac
Centenary projects.
The Anzac Centenarys
flagship community event,
launched by the Prime Minister last month, is the Spirit
of Anzac Centenary Experience. This free travelling
exhibition uses a mix of artefacts, audio and film to tell
stories of the First World War
and Australias ensuing century of service. It will visit 23
locations around Australia
starting in September this
year.
Senator Michael Ronaldson
Minister assisting the
Prime Minister for the
Centenary of Anzac

Dear Editor,
I am writing in response
to Sue Deans letter (MN 14
April). It seems Ms Dean
is misinformed. Firstly,
the Mayor, when asked his
opinion on wind farms, has
publically stated he is in favor of wind power. Secondly,
the house referred to in Ms
Deans letter was not owned
by the mayor.
In regard to the rate payers interests Ms Dean implies locals are against wind
farms, however I would like
to say there is evidence that
the majority of ratepayers
in the area are in favor of
clean, renewable energy and
would benefit from wind

farms.
Recently I attended a public
meeting hosted by a group of
farmers from the Crowlands
area near Ararat. The three
mayors from the three local
councils attended; Pyrenees
Shire, Ararat and Northern
Grampians Shire Council.
They had invited their local MP, Dan Tehan (Liberal
for Wannon), with the aim
of explaining to him the
importance of wind farms
to their local economy. The
mayors explained the economic benefits to their shires
of the existing wind farms
and what was at stake for
them if the additional four
proposed wind farms did
not go ahead. To quote the
mayors: new wind farms for
their area would total $1.68
billion in capital investment
and $100 million injection
into the local economy during construction. $1.5 million would go every year to
host landholders who are
doing it tough in the farming
industry at the moment with
more frequent droughts. $1.3
million in income from rates
paid by the wind companies
would go to councils. In relation to jobs the wind farms
would involve 900 construction jobs and 60 direct and
74 indirect ongoing jobs
during the operation of the
wind farms over a period of
25 years. In addition to this
there is $300,000 a year in
community grants and investment and construction
opportunities over 25 years
delivering in excess of an additional $400 million. What

Super trawlers vacuum fish from the ocean

I went to Perth on Saturday to join the rally against


the factory fishing trawler
the Geelong Star fishing in
Tasmanian waters. The Geelong Star has been brought
to Tasmania by Seafish Tasmania, a company owned
by overseas interests, and
is Tasmanian only in name.
There were about 200 of us at
the rally and most appeared
to be recreational fishermen.
The prime minister recently
said that ships over 100 or so
metres would no longer be
allowed to fish in Australias
waters. This Geelong Star
is 95metres and has all the
gear the ones over 100 metres have. As one of the five
speakers said, there is absolutely no difference between
these ships in what they are
capable of doing.
The streets of Perth, a small

town south of Launceston,


were lined with boats on Saturday as the locals brought
their boats with them. I have
been to a good number of
rallies over the years and
this one was unlike most of
the ones I have been to. This
was like attending a rally in
support of logging or mining. There were few that
looked like environmentalists whatever that look
is. John Edwards from the
Tuna Club of Tasmania said
he would have to acknowledge the help of the environmentalists in this fight.
He seemed to say this with
a deal of hesitancy. In Tasmania the Greens and any
environmentalists are seen
as taking jobs away and the
other parties play on this in
all their talks. Johns words
of thanks to those environ-

mentalists were met with


genuine applause, again if
somewhat reluctantly. These
people were definitely not
your normal rally attenders, whoever they are. And
yet they were fighting for a
cause that has been around
as long as big business has
been edging its way into all
government decisions. They
were fighting for the disempowered and they were
fighting with a breadth and
depth of knowledge that put
the political remarks of the
government and big business to shame.
As I said, the thing that
stood out for me about all
the speakers at the rally was
the knowledge these speakers had about the waters
around Tasmania and the
life in these waters: they
were all in the fishing busi-

ness. They were not used to


speaking at rallies and yet
they spoke. They all agreed
that things were in a dangerous state with fish decline
already obvious. As John Edwards said, Weve experienced localised depletion on
our doorstep on at least two,
if not three other, occasions
through smaller operations
than this industrial scale
fishing. Or as another of the
speakers said, The biggest
worry is the stuff that is getting taken out of the water
which is not necessary.
As I said, I was moved by
the depth of knowledge of
the waters and fish of Tasmania by these five speakers whose whole lives were
based on this livelihood. I
have generally put my faith
in science and had wondered why one scientist had

been on television lately


saying how good and safe
this fishing was. After this
rally I can understand the
frustration these people feel
about this science. Science,
it seems, can sometimes go
to the highest bidder. I can
understand the locals anger
when the Liberal Senator for
Tasmania, Richard Colbeck,
says he trusts the science
when, in a recent poll, 90%
of his constituents said
they did not want the super
trawler working in Tasmanias waters.
The last speaker briefly
talked of what this ship,
or one like it, had recently
done to the people of Africa.
A ship like it had taken the
fish from the coast of Africa
that, until its arrival, was
the food for the thousands
of small local fisherman and

their families. This speaker


surmised that the fish
vacuumed up off Tasmania
would be frozen, boxed and
eventually sold in Africa to
these very fishermen and
their families. He said the
science was not running this
effort, but politics.
Every one of us needs to
contact our local member
and let them know that we
do not, under any circumstances, want any supertrawlers anywhere near our
oceans.
What is your opinion?

Its not going to be used
for anything other than the
fallen firefighters.

Tips in marketing
turn-of the
century homes

Enzo Raimondo
CEO, REIV
Victoria has a wide range
of residential housing styles,
ranging from Victorian, federation and art deco homes
with intact period features
to starkly modernist and
cutting-edge contemporary.
When selling a home its architectural features can play
a role in how it is marketed
and to whom.
It is important for sellers to
let their agent know about
the homes particular characteristics, including period
features and whether or not
these are original, what is reproduction or has had work
done on it. These are questions buyers may ask and
agents will need to answer.
The selling agent, who
plans the marketing campaign in discussion with the
owner, will know the local
buyer profile and the types
of buyers most likely to be
seeking a home of the kind
being sold. So the agent will
be able to determine how important the period features
are in attracting buyers.
Sometimes,
particularly
when a home is an excellent
and well-preserved example
of a particular style, these
features will play a key role
in the marketing in an effort to attract lovers of that
style. Photographs may
focus on features such as
wrought iron lacework, tiled
fireplaces or art deco ceiling
mouldings.

But every generation modernises homes according to


the taste and needs of that
generation. So much of the
states housing stock is actually a composite of styles.
Even when a home has been
sympathetically renovated,
in keeping with its original
style, it may have a newer
kitchen or bathroom, in line
with the latest expectations
of buyers.
Also, buyers have individual reasons for purchasing
and intact period features
may not necessarily rate
highly with some. For example, a buyer may want
a family home and a large
federation home may suit
that purpose, with space
and layout more important
than fully detailed period
features. So the family may
prefer a modern extension
with open plan living, to a
turn-of-the-century style at
the rear of a home.
This is where the agents
expertise comes into the
selling. The agent may determine that buyers are likely
to be more influenced by
the vendors having spent
hundreds of thousands of
dollars on a contemporary
extension than by the period
mouldings and architraves.
Also, some period features
such as rear bathroom and
outside laundry may not suit
contemporary living and
may actually be a disadvantage to some buyers.
The decisions an agent
makes in deciding how
to market a property are
based on many factors.
These include: its location,
its quality, the marketing
budget, demand in the area,
recent sales, whether or not
the property needs work,
whether the market is buoyant. The quality of period
features may also be an important factor but it may
be a lesser priority in some
cases.

Tom Murphy, Darcy and Riley Cording were in the best

players. Ethan Valentine ran

Local derby drubbing

Ballan Football v Gordon


The Senior Blues suffered
their worst defeat of the year
in the traditional Maher/
Murphy Cup against the
Eagles. At the first break the
Blues were trailing by only
four points but in the second
quarter the Eagles swooped
on the Blues with five unanswered goals and repeated
the medicine in the final
term. In the middle Ryan
Aquilina battled all day
and Shawn Campbell tried
to stem the flood but to no
avail. The back line was under relentless pressure and
Daniel Nielsen put in a good
account. The Eagles had
plenty of options up forward
and could do no wrong.
Final Score - Ballan 5 11
41 lost Gordon 15 16 106
In complete contrast to the
Senior match, the Reserves
burst out of the blocks and
were never troubled all
day. Rod Watts showed off

his silky skills up forward


and drew in his other team
mates. The Blues had all the
of the ball and had nine scoring shots to one in the first
quarter, but inaccuracy up
forward reduced the margin. President Bill Smith was
able to kick truly up forward
and showed how it was
done. As ever, Mark Dunn
ran all day and lost count of
the number of possessions
and he was ably assisted by
Damien Hamm and Michael
Snaith.
Final Score - Ballan 8 11
59 def Gordon 4 5 29
The Under 18s had their
first win of the year recording a 108 point victory. The
Under 15s was low scoring and close up until the
third quarter before Gordon
sealed the four points with
three unanswered goals in
the last term.
** The club took the opportunity to thank the
large number of spectators
from Gordon and Ballan
who signed the petition
for Fiskville. A great effort
bymembers of the local CFA
brigade on highlighting this
matter.

Sulky Snippets
By LEN BAKER

Tubbs big day


out

Bacchus Marsh father and


daughter Alan and Amy
Tubbs enjoyed a great day at
the Geelong fixture held on
Monday April 20, winning
three races on the program,
Alan training two and Amy
driving the trio.
Extremely talented Artistic
Fella/Marilyn Macray gelding Macterra Lad was first
to greet the judge, taking
out the Pace for C1 class over
2100 metres.
Taken back to last from outside the front row, Macterra
Lad commenced a forward
move three wide solo in the
final circuit to outstay his
rivals in defeating a deathseating Blackwarrior and the
pacemaker Blacks A Beauty
in a mile rate of 2-00.9.
Last start Shepparton win-

ner Drunken Maniac continued on his winning way


when successful in the Trotters Mobile for T1 & T2 class
over 2100 metres.
Settling in the one/one position from gate two, Amy
not happy with the tempo
vacated the prime spot to
park outside the leader and
favourite Kyvalley Vice racing for the bell.
Showing great tenacity,
Drunken Maniac a four year
old gelded son of Bacardi
Lindy and Hiona Mountain
raced by Paul and Brian Dobson, Frank (Mickey) Spillane
and Pat Camm, proved too
strong over the concluding
stages for Kyvalley Vice to
register a neck victory in a
rate of 2-04, with Monica My
Dear (one/one last lap) third.
Five year old Bettors Delight/Saabette mare Lierre
Noir trained by Amy, landed
the Pace for C5 & C6 class
over 2100 metres in a rate of
1-58.7.
Showing plenty of speed
from gate four to immediately lob outside the poleline leader Discrimination,
Lierre Noir ended up three
back in the running line as
both Angus T Jones and Another Safari made forward
moves.
Eased three wide in the
back straight on the final

occasion, Lierre Noir when


asked for a supreme effort on
turning, ran home strongly
to gain the day by a nose
over Balance Point along the
sprint lane after following
Discrimination who ended
up third 2.4 metres away.
Long Forest duo Andy and
Kate Gath were victorious
with Jeremes Jet/Millpac
Maid 4-Y-0 gelding Gowan
Brae in the Pace for C2 &
C3 class over 1200 metres,
leading throughout from
gate four to account for
Glenferrie Arch (one/one)
and Houhora Delight which
faced the breeze. The mile
rate 2-01.2.
Rockbanks Ian McMahon is
having a lucky run at present
and snared the Pace for C0
class over 2100 metres with
4-Y-0 Safari/Classic Courtia
mare Ourgirlbillilee.
Korweinguboora trainer/
driver Eddie Conroys 4-Y0 Tennotrump/Glory Lass
gelding No Trumps No Glory finally broke his maiden
status at start number 28 by
taking the Trotters Mobile
for T0 class over 2100 metres.

Sell it Local for Less

Settling at the tail of the


field from the extreme draw,
No Trumps No Glory raced
three wide solo for the last
lap to defeat a death-seating
Ruby Victory which crossed
to lead in the final circuit.
Miss Cosmos (three back the
markers) finished third. The
mile rate 2-05.2.
At Maryborough on Thursday, Alan and Amy Tubbs
were again winners, when
Milliondollar Wave greeted
the judge in the 3-Y-0 Pace
over 2190 metres in a rate of
2-00.9.
A most consistent gelding
by Million Dollar Cam from
Im Making Waves, Milliondollar Wave starting from
gate three on the second line
was sent forward shortly after the start to park outside
the pacemaker Spirit Of Miranda where Amy dictated
the terms of the race.
Surging clear in the last lap,
Milliondollar Wave had 2.9
metres to spare at the finish, defeating Bisping which
trailed the leader, with Soho
Berlin (one/three) third.
Veteran Meltonian Graeme
Lang and son Gavin snared
the Trotters Mobile for T1
class over 2190 metres at Ma-
