Soldiers on guard

By Jessica Howard
A group of mosaic soldiers have taken their
place out front of Darley Neighbourhood
House.
The nine characters, which were once
plain wooden bollards, feature outside the
community group’s childcare centre.
Darley Neighbourhood House volunteers
decorated the bollards with mosaic tiles,
before they were installed outside the
childcare centre by the XYZ Social Club.
House manager, Jeanette McGonegal said
the idea was to offer something fun for the

children whilst keeping with the theme of
the neighbourhood house.
Earlier this year, the community group
erected a large mosaic sign at the front
entrance and three mosaic houses on the
adjacent panel.
“The use of mosaic really enhances the
environment of the place and brings a new
light to the area,” she said.
“This has been a fabulously collaborative
project and I hope that the surrounding
community will have a sense of pride.
“To have something so fantastic in this area

and this street is something that I would
hope the whole community feels proud of.”
Chris Cocking, who helped lead the project,
said she first made one of the mosaic soldiers
at her home.
“[The project group] held three meetings to
discuss how we could beautify the childcare
centre. I made one of the soldiers myself and
then I let everyone come up and have a look;
everyone was really happy with what I had
made and it just went from there,” she said.
“The first working bee had around 8-10
people, but after that there was really just the
five of us: myself and (husband) Phillip, Jill

Geurts, Leonie Scott and Elaine Robertson”.
Mrs Cocking said most of the project was
undertaken at her home, with the group
working up to seven hours a day.
“It was a big project that took a long time,
but we are really thrilled with how it has
turned out. We hope that all the hard work
that has gone into the childcare centre can
keep it running, and that it provides a really
nice environment for the children”.
The project, which took around two
months, was entirely funded by Darley
Neighbourhood House.

Accused murderer
remains in custody
The heartbroken family of
a Darley man charged with
murder sat in the Melbourne
Magistrates’ Court last Friday morning at a committal
mention.
Clearly distressed, the family watched as the accused
Christopher John Trotter,
was brought into the court
accompanied by a corrections officer, to hear his case
adjourned until 16 February
2017.
Mr Trotter was arrested on
Thursday 23 June 2016 and
the charge against him read,
“The accused at Bacchus
Marsh on 24 September 2015
did murder Keith Jonathan
Foggin.”
The defence contested the
committal hearing to “crossexamine two witnesses
relevant to the case.” The

informant, Det. LSC Boxhall
(Missing Persons Squad) and
the DNA biologist will take
the stand in four months
time.
Magistrate Franz Holzer
asked Mr Trotter if he understood the adjournment,
to which he nodded and replied, “Yes.”
Mr Foggin, a 47-year-old
father and grandfather, was
last seen at a Millbank Street
address in Bacchus Marsh at
about 10:30am on Thursday
24 September 2015.
He was reported missing on
October 1 after his daughter,
who he was known to keep
in regular contact with over
the phone, had not heard
from him in more than a
week.
Trotter will remain in
custody.

Colourful day on the greens
Bacchus Marsh Golf Club
The recent rains have dampened the spirits of many
a golfer, but the sun shone for a couple of days and the
ladies took full advantage of the fairways and fast greens.
Female golf teams came to the Bacchus Marsh Golf Club
from Talbot, Ballarat, Bacchus Marsh West and Melton
golf clubs dressed in pink, as they do annually in October,
to raise awareness for Breast Cancer.
The visiting teams joined the ladies from Bacchus Marsh
Golf Club to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation.
Spokesperson for the ladies from Bacchus Marsh Claire
Sutherland said all the golfers relished the dry conditions.
“It was a great day to be out on the course after the recent
unpredictability of the weather.
“All the ladies dressed in pink golf gear and competed
in a Texas Ambrose game with the teams from Talbot and
Ballarat taking home the prizes.”
The fun day raised $300 and will be donated to the
McGrath Foundation for the local breast care nurse.

Trees to be felled

By Kate Taylor
Ballan’s Recreation Reserve is set to become safer
with $70,000 worth of tree
removals.
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and
Planning (DELWP) grant is
under the Public Safety on
Public Land Program.
Ballan Recreation Reserve’s
Committee of Management

chairman Billy Smith said
the $70,000 grant will allow
for the removal of 30 aged
cypress trees along the western perimeter of the oval.
“Unfortunately the trees
have reached their expected
lifespan, with nine of the
trees already dead,” Mr
Smith said.
“Further tree deaths are
likely in the near future. Fall-

ing limbs and branches pose
an unacceptable risk to the
safety of people using the
Ballan Recreation Reserve.”
Mr Smith said that processing of the trees and re-use of
woodchips onsite will minimise disruption to the neighbourhood which would have
been caused by smoke if the
tree waste was burned.
“It’s important to DELWP

$20,000 that identify, assess,
control and monitor risks to
public safety associated with
the use of public land.

Get hooked on fishing
By Jessica Howard
Moorabool and Bostock
Reservoirs are set to be inundated with thousands of
yearling trout.
Following the recent spring
rainfall, the two waterways
are among several iconic
lakes throughout the state
to be stocked with Rainbow
and Brown Trout.
Executive Director of Fisheries Victoria, Travis Dowling said increasing fish
stocking was a key commitment of the State Government’s Target One Million
plan for recreational fishing,
which aims to get more people fishing, more often.
“We stocked a record three
million fish last season,
with help from fishing license fees, and will improve
on that during the next 12
months, including in the

short term before Christmas
by quickly responding to
these improved conditions,”
he said.
Moorabool Reservoir has
already received 6,000 rain-

bow trout and 6,000 brown,
with a further 30,000 fingerlings to be delivered in coming weeks.
Meanwhile, Bostock Reservoir is set to receive 4,000

rainbow trout and 1,000
brown.
Mr Dowling said trout
would be sourced from their
hatchery at Snobs Creek,
while others would be purchased from private hatcheries still holding ‘late season’
stock.
“Our watch list of waters
that could be stocked if water
levels continue to improve
includes lakes Murdeduke,
Learmonth, Natimuk, Modewarre, Colac and Pine,” he
said.
“It’s all about increasing
fishing opportunities and
encouraging more people to
cast a line and experience
our great outdoors.
“Recreational fishing puts
a smile on people’s faces, it
lifts the community spirit
and is great fun.”

Voters in the Moorabool Shire Council elections are
reminded that, to avoid a fine, completed ballot papers MUST
be in the mail or hand-delivered to the election office, by 6.00
pm on Friday 21 October.
The election office for Moorabool Shire Council is located at
121 Inglis Street, Ballan and is open to the public. Extended
hours apply from 9.00 am to 8.00 pm on Thursday 20 October
and 9.00 am to 6.00 pm on Friday 21 October.

But its looking more and more likely
that council will be forced to refund
money paid by some residents who
have subdivided and developed their
blocks of land.

In many cases, when a block is
subdivided to be built on and sold, the
permit contains a condition that the
owner, or developer, pays the ‘Social
Infrastructure Contribution’ of $900
per lot.

The money is put into a fund, from

will be spent – on social infrastructure
projects in the area from where the
funds were provided.
The Moorabool News understands
that the fund currently contains more
than $900,000.

Taking the cause to Canberra
Innovative expansion plans
for the Ballan Hospital have
been discussed and viewed
during a visit to Canberra’s
Parliament
House
last
Tuesday.
Ballan
District
Health
Care’s CEO, Wayne Weaire
and former National Party
candidate Paul Tatchell met
with senior Coalition Government Ministers and Senators during their visit to the
nation’s Capital.
The expansion plans include an additional 51 beds
for the Aged Care Facility,
construction of a Day Procedure Unit with two theatres
and the doubling of capacity at the Child Care Centre
(from 50 to 100 child care
places).
When complete, the three
projects will deliver an additional 77 local jobs and inject
an additional $10.65 million
into the regional economy
each year.
Mr Weaire said the three
projects will make Ballan
Hospital’s model of integrated services, incorporating
aged and child care onsite,
one of the few community
funded hospitals financially
sustainable in Australia.
“This innovative model has
the potential to be a game
changer and to disrupt the
way that rural health care is
funded and provided in the
future.

Stuart Deagan – East

Last Chance to Choose

What do you believe are the top 3 challenges faced by
Moorabool Rate Payers?
Growth, rates, and the quality of
services available for ratepayers in
the shire are three major challenges
that are facing our shire. Bacchus
Marsh and its surrounds are a highly
desirable place to live and developers
have been capitalising on that through
new housing developments.  We
need to ensure that quality services
continue to be developed and
delivered to the growing population;
planning decisions are transparent, accountable and
appropriate within the characteristics of the shire; and that
there is proper investment in infrastructure. We don’t want
Bacchus Marsh to become just another ‘pop up’ suburb as
found across Melbourne’s western suburbs.
What can you offer as a Councillor?
From my experience in management in the community
services sector over the last 8 years, I can offer leadership
in ensuring quality services are delivered to the growing
community in a financially responsible manner.  I am a
community minded individual and believe that everyone who
wants to participate in decisions that affect their community
should be afforded all opportunities to do so.
So as a candidate for East Moorabool I am advocating for
increased community participation within the council decision
making process by increasing the avenues to communicate
and consult with rate payers and ensuring council meetings
are on at an appropriate time to increase participation and
attendance.

Margaret Scarff – East

What do you believe are the top three challenges facing
Moorabool ratepayers? 
The top three challenges for rate
payers and residents will depend on
which part of the Shire they live in,
but I am confident that rate increases
would be unpopular, particularly for
low income residents and families
and farmers already under financial
stress. The poor condition of many
roads throughout the Shire would also
be high on their list. Potholes appear
quicker than Council can keep them
filled. I am also confident that traffic congestion in Bacchus
Marsh is an ongoing concern for East Ward ratepayers and
residents. All of these issues raise questions about budget
efficiencies, and Council’s success rate for attracting funds
from other levels of government.  
What would you be able to offer as a councillor? 
With a BA and Masters in Information Management and a
proven history as a problem solver and strategic thinker,
I have the skills, experience and determination needed to
work on any issues coming to Council. I would ask lots
of questions including why some problems take so long to
resolve like the creation of a truck by-pass. Council could
wait and see what difference the by-pass, and Hallett’s Way
extension, make to traffic in Grant Street and Gisborne
Road, before considering widening these roads. Widening
would result in the unthinkable; houses and heritage
buildings demolished, reduced liveability, and a major
change to the Bacchus Marsh we know. Rate increases will
always be contentious which means fairness, consultation,
transparency and accountability back to the community
would be the way I work. I have experience working with
strategic committees of Council, where decisions are made
and policies developed with measurable outcomes.  

Lawry Borgelt 

– Woodlands
What do you believe are the top three challenges facing
Moorabool ratepayers? 
I believe that the three biggest challenges for Moorabool ratepayers are
receiving value for money - services
for our high rates. A long term infrastructure plan that takes into account,
not only roads and traffic but updating
septic/sewer services in areas that currently don’t have them, oversees parks
and block sizes across the whole shire
that allows sustainable growth but also
protects our unique rural identity.  And,
implementing a plan that not only protects but encourages
agriculture and manufacturing within the region, to increase
job opportunities and tourist dollars. 
What would you be able to offer as a councillor? 
As a councillor, I offer a commitment to ensure an equitable
distribution of funding/grants across the whole Woodlands
Ward.  I believe that a council working together can achieve
more than a council divided.  I also undertake to ensure
open channels of communication and transparency in
council process.  Lastly, I offer the voters of Woodlands the
chance of elected local government representation, as is
their democratic right. 

Jarrod Bingham – East

What do you believe are the top three challenges facing
Moorabool ratepayers? 
1. Inadequate services that don’t
appropriately reflect rate levels. 
2. Frustration towards a non-existent
transparent and responsive council. 
3. Frustration that rate payers continue
to go unheard and unnoticed. 
What would you be able to offer as
a councillor? 
I’m currently a member of Youth Action
Group. I hope that as a younger
generation councillor our youth would
feel more comfortable approaching a councillor that is closer
to their age bracket regarding their problems or issues around
our community and if need be I can relay that message to
my fellow councillors so we can resolve the problem/ issue. 
I hope that all our youth from the other wards will feel
comfortable enough to approach me with anything at all, if
they don’t feel comfortable over the phone I will make a time
to personally come out and visit them regardless of the area,
after all that is the role of an effective councillor.  
The problem with our youth these days is that many are
disengaging from the community which affectively brings out
a lot of issues and factors not only in the youth themselves
but to the community as a whole, I believe this is due to our
youth feeling like there’s no one to talk to, like they are alone
and don’t feel like an important member of our community.
I want to change that, I care, and through me I want to help
make our youth feel more engaged and an important part in
the decision-making process, and let them know that yes,
you are an important part of our community. 

Allan Comrie – East

What do you believe are the top three issues facing
Moorabool ratepayers?
The one that’s going to hit them is this
fight between the State Government
and the CFA about the fire levy – that
is going to go through the roof if the
state government gets their way. The
State Government wants all volunteer
firefighters  to be paid staff; it costs
about $400 million a year at the
moment to run the CFA, but it’ll push
it up to $1.2 billion. Every household
pays that fire levy, and the fire levy’s
going to go through the roof, and council collects that fire
levy on behalf of the state government on the rates notices.
Why do you think that ratepayers should vote for you again?
Because I’ll be there to help them and do the best I can for
the community.

David Edwards – East

What do you believe are the top three issues facing
Moorabool ratepayers?
1.  The need for infrastructure to meet
the expectations of the community
- this includes but is not limited to a
truck bypass, lack of ovals and netball
courts, soccer pitches, indoor sport
stadiums, and the dilapidated pool.
2. Inappropriate developments and the
need to take the strategic work carried
out in the last four years and get
that  work reflected in the Moorabool
Planning Scheme.
3. The continued pressure to expand town boundaries
and the pressure this will place on our fertile farming land
throughout the shire.
Why do you think that ratepayers should vote for you again?
Because Council is not about headlines, it’s about working
hard to achieve results and I believe that I can put my hand
up and say that I have worked hard for the community to get
results and will continue to do so.

Paul Tatchell – Central

What do you believe are the top three issues facing
Moorabool ratepayers over the next term of council?
Managing our depreciating infrastructure. Planning beyond Council terms to
manage projected growth. Prosecuting the State and Federal Government
funding argument - it is not sustainable
for regional areas to receive less than
6 per cent of the infrastructure budget,
when over 25 per cent of people live in
the Rural Sector. Rates have become
pseudo- taxism - you can’t develop a
Shire on the back of the ratepayer.
Why do you think that ratepayers
should vote for you again?
I am committed to the future of the region, and I recognise
the challenges ahead.

John Kowasky Did not respond or reply to our
requests, via email or telephone.

John Keogh – East

What do you believe are the top three challenges
facing Moorabool ratepayers? 
The top three challenges facing
Moorabool ratepayers are the increase
in rates, number one; number two is
the deteriorating road infrastructure
that we have; and number three is
our great social problem which is
youth unemployment - council seems
unable to tackle the problems we have
because of youth unemployment:
we need to get on top of youth
unemployment. 
What would you be able to offer as a councillor? 
What I would be able to offer as a councillor is that I am a
qualified civil engineer; I have post-graduate qualifications in
municipal engineering and management, so I believe I have
a lot of experience that I can offer the ratepayers.  

Moira Berry

– East
What do you believe are the top three challenges facing
Moorabool ratepayers? 
The need for improved infrastructure
before there are more residential
developments.  We are in one of the
major growth corridors in Victoria and
residential developments need to be in
keeping with our Rural feel.  I wouldn’t
like to see The Moorabool Shire
becoming another crowded suburban
nightmare. Many families have moved
into the area because it is close
enough to be Rural without being too
far removed from the busy suburbs.  Develop but keep in
mind our rural status.  
Challenge the State and Federal Government to feed dollars
into our shire instead of depleting facilities.  One example is
the recent reduced services to our emergency services at
our local hospital, a disappointment at least. We need to be
asking ‘Where is our share of the money pot?‘  When being
successful it would take a bit of pressure off ratepayers
within the Shire.  ‘Give Moorabool Shire a piece of the pie’   
I am a mother of two, one still at home and I hope and want
to encourage both my children’s families to remain within
the Shire.  Encouraging new business to open and prosper
is a major challenge in itself.  Advocate for new businesses,
build and offer great facilities for families and encourage
locals to support local business. 
What would you be able to offer as a councillor? 
I believe I can be transparent by listening, advocating,
connecting, representing and delivering the needs of the
residents of the Moorabool Shire.  I would be looking forward
to being part of a team of Councillors who works tirelessly
to get the best outcomes for the Shire’s positive strategic
direction.  It is vital that I represent the people of Moorabool
so what matters to you, matters to me. 

Tonia Dudzik – East

What do you believe are the top three issues facing
Moorabool ratepayers over the next term of council?
1. Improving traffic in Bacchus Marsh
2. Rate capping and service delivery
3. Meeting sporting and recreation
needs of a growing population.
Why do you think that ratepayers
should vote for you again?
I have given Council 100 per cent.
I am active in the community. I have
listened to, assisted and advocated
for residents and community groups.
I have always stood up for what is
right and helped people. I have been
a voice for youth, families, older people and those with disabilities. I am independent; I have no conflicts of interest or
alliances with other people. My vote is determined by what is
right and what is the best outcome for residents.

Pat Toohey

– Woodlands
What do you believe are the top three issues facing
Moorabool ratepayers over the next term of council?
To meet the demand of our growing
communitys need for improved and
maintained infrastructure. Holding
accountable both Federal and State
government to get a fair share of our
tax dollars to ease the burden on our
ratepayers. To maintain a strong voice
in our community and our region as one
of the leading growth areas in the state
to attract business and government
funding enabling us as a community to
attract more home-grown jobs.
Why do you think that ratepayers should vote for you again?
I will endeavour to continue to work closely with my
communities, state and federal government representatives
to achieve improved outcomes for our families right across
Moorabool the region, and continue to be a leader with a
strong voice for our rights to make sure that we get the best
outcomes from all levels of government for our future.

Mother nature

Rain, rain, go away… so that
Moorabool Shire Council
can put a claim in.
Recent
wet
weather,
combined with recent wind
storms, have caused damage
around the shire, mostly to
road infrastructure – but the
continuing rain has meant

that assessments have not
yet been completed, and a
dollar value for the damage
is still being sought.

Council CEO Rob Croxford
said that council will be
putting in a claim to the
state government to help pay
for repairing the damage.
“Council is still assessing

the damage from the recent
flood and wind storms.
Further rain events are
preventing us from getting a
final assessment and costs,”
Mr Croxford said.
“We’ve

the
Government to the fact a

Court in action

By Steven Barnes

Driving on the wrong side
of the road and failing to aid
police investigations were
issues raised last Friday in
the Bacchus Marsh Court.
Emma Jackson, 18, was with
a male driver at the APCO
service station in Bacchus
Marsh at around 10:15pm on
January 3 this year.
The black Holden Astra the
two were in was followed by
police as they left the service
station.

The unknown driver of the
vehicle allegedly accelerated
away from police, driving on
the wrong side of the road
and forced oncoming traffic
to brake in order to prevent
a collision.
Emma Jackson was interviewed by police in later
weeks after CCTV footage
connected her to the car that
night.
The court heard Miss Jackson had failed to nominate
the driver of the vehicle that
night to police saying, “the
person that was driving

was close to me and I was
scared”.
Despite the fact that Miss
Jackson had not been driving the vehicle at the time
of the incident, Magistrate
Greg Robinson addressed
the accused saying, “I don’t
believe you come to court
with clean hands”.
Taking into account Miss
Jackson’s no previous priors
and the fact the alleged driver had now been charged,
Magistrate Robinson imposed a $500 fine without
conviction.

Minimal divide rejected

By Kate Taylor
A two-lot subdivision in
Cunningham Close, Darley,
has been rejected by Moorabool Shire Council.
The October 6 meeting
heard the proposal was to
split a block into one 654sqm
lot with a home, and a vacant
lot which would be 489sqm.
There were 16 objections to
the proposal received, mainly in terms of the impact on
neighbourhood character,
traffic, and amenity.
A report prepared on the
matter by council officers
stated the proposed development does not “respect
neighbourhood character”
and recommended that it be
rejected as it does not provide
“a sense of spaciousness.”
“Cunningham Close and
residential areas nearby
were subdivided in the mid
1980s and largely developed
in the following years,” the
report reads.
“Dwellings typically have
spacious front and rear setbacks, and are generally set
back from at least one side

boundary by at least 3.0m.
The lot design in Cunningham Close includes irregularly shaped lots and correspondingly some dwellings
are partially constructed
close to side boundaries.
However, the lot sizes and
layout of dwellings in relation to each other ensures a
sense of spaciousness.”
Two objectors spoke at the
meeting, outlining their concerns about the neighbourhood character.
However, applicant Matthew Wood told the meeting
that the subdivision would
fit in with the current range
of block sizes in the close.
“We are empathetic to our
neighbours, we don’t think
we are doing anything in
poor taste or way of life.
Does the proposal respect
neighbourhood character?
There are a variety of different houses in that Close
- 380sqm – 1400sqm; that is
the range of blocks in this
Close, in all shapes. We
believe we have the same
rights as anyone,” Mr Wood
said.
East Ward Councillor Dave

Edwards argued in favour of
rejecting the proposal.
“Clearly Bacchus Marsh is
going through growth pains,
we must take advice and
consider the setbacks which
are minimum requirements.
This particular one is not
quite suited to this subdivision. We must be able to defend our decisions in VCAT.
On balance, this is the right
decision,” Cr Edwards said.
Woodlands Ward Councillor Pat Toohey said he was
troubled by the lack of reasons as to why the application would be refused.
West Ward Councillor Tom
Sullivan argued in favour of
approving the subdivision.
“Respect the Neighbourhood Character does not
mean duplicate. A two-lot
subdivision is the least you
will ever get, it is not a 20
unit block; lot size is trending down, it is not the norm
now to have a large block. It
won’t be a great impact,” Cr
Sullivan said.
The motion to refuse the
permit application for a 2-lot
subdivsion was carried.

If we could find a treatment that offers pain
relief and doesn’t involve surgery, needles or
pills, wouldn’t we try it?
This innovative treatment is no fantasy. It is
Low Level Laser Therapy, and has been used
in Ballarat since 1995 by the late Dr Chris
Millar, a GP very much ahead of his time.
Recent trials have backed up Dr Millar’s
early adoption of laser therapy. It has been
shown to be an effective method of relieving
pain, reducing inflammation and improving
healing.
A non-invasive treatment that can be applied
to most areas of the body, laser therapy uses
light to penetrate the skin to work on muscles,
tendons, bones, tissues, nerves, and cells.
The results can improve patients’ quality of
life remarkably. Many patients report that
their excruciating pain has been alleviated
and mobility has returned.

Laser therapy is used to treat wounds, burns,
bruises, neck pain, osteoarthritis, side effects
of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and many
other conditions. It has been known to work
effectively where other therapies have had
little effect.
While six to eight treatments are
recommended for most patients, chronic
conditions require more. Many patients
experience relief after the first consultation.

Family tree with many branches
By Jessica Howard
Five generations of the Mills
family were represented at a
Gordon family reunion last
month.
Descendants of John and Julia (Gleeson) Mills travelled
from as far as Queensland
to attend the reunion, held
at the Gordon Community
Hall on Sunday September
25.

John and Julia were married
in 1863 at St Alipius Church
in Ballarat before giving
birth to 19 children.
Michael Elkins, the greatgreat grandchild of John and
Julia, said there were now
believed to be more than
1000 descendants, with eldest child Kenneth Gordon
Mills believed to have over
300 descendants alone.
“A lot of us didn’t even
know that we had extended

family members as we didn’t
know past our grandparents.
After some of the descendants came across each other
and decided to get together,
we realised that John and
Julia were great-great-great
grandparents to some of the
children who attended the
day,” he said.
“There were 39 people at
the event. Initially we were
going to have representatives from eight of the fami-

other life.
“It’s a great sight to see the
river with this amount of
water coming down it.”
And who better to ask about
the best views of the flow;
Lal lal Falls are thundering,
but it’s the lesser-known
Moorabool Falls that are
worth the 25-minute walk
along the escarpment according to Mr Steele.
“The Moorabool Falls, while
they’re not as spectacular as
the Lal Lal Falls, they’re still
a great site if you’re prepared
to walk in there. The Lal Lal
Falls car park has been full…
but not many people walk
along to the Moorabool Falls.
It’s a bit of a hidden gem.”

Readings taken at the
Batesford Bridge show that
the river is flowing at 2,500
megalitres per day; it sounds
a lot, because for the river, in
recent years, it is.
“It’s a little bit sobering because that’s what the river
receives in environmental
allocations over the entire
year that puts it into some
kind of perspective.”
Another thing that is benefitting, however, is fish
migration.
“Fish are migrating up from
the Barwon River up to the
Moorabool - this is one of the
rare opportunities they get
to move up the river.”

Rain cleans rivers

By Kate Taylor

There’s nothing quite like
good solid rainfall to clean
out a distressed river.
And recent conditions
have provided the perfect
situation for the pre-summer
clean-up, according to People for A Living Moorabool
member Cameron Steele.
“The exciting thing about
these flows, is that they will
scour a lot of the organic material from the bottom of the
river, and we’re hoping that
there might be some water
going over the bank and
into the billabongs and other
areas, transporting some
of those nutrients to the
streamside vegetation so it
will benefit,” Mr Steele said.
It really is very good news
for the river; we had been
facing a number of years of
low flows, and this will have
a good cleaning effect along
the bed of the river, and the
fact that a lot of the organic
material is being shifted will
mean that the pools in summer are less likely to become
deoxygenated and quite
black, killing off fish and

lies, but due to sickness a
few people had to pull out at
the last minute”.
Mr Elkins said those who
were able to attend visited
various places in Gordon, including St Patrick’s Church,
Mills Road and the Gordon
Cemetery.
“Back in about 1872 John
Mills was one of three laborers who built the first stages
of the existing church, so
it was great to be able to go

and see what a stunning
building it is,” he said.
“We then visited the land
which he owned and the
street that was named after
him. None of the descendants had ever seen any of
these sites.
“At the end of the day, we
went to the cemetery where
John and Julia were buried
and we actually found Julia’s
mother’s grave, too. It was
quite emotional because we

discovered that prior to Julia’s mother arriving in Australia, she lost her husband
and three youngest children
in Ireland. So, she had gone
through all of that and still
boarded a sailing ship for
80-odd days to Australia.
“It was great to be able to
discover the history of our
family and was lovely to
have been able to connect
our family together on the
day”.

Footballs that are currently kicked
through the goals facing south on
Grey Street, land in the Darley Park
playground. The erection of the netting
will provide protection for kids and
spectators and will also stop the loss of
footballs.
The Development Grants are aimed
at development activities, which
includes increasing participation, new
programs, projects that will assist with
the club’s long-term viability, minor
capital works and new equipment for
clubs in the AFL Goldfields Region.
AFL Goldfields Regional General

Manager Rod Ward said he was
delighted to announce the recipients
of the grants, which were an initiative
introduced by AFL Goldfields in 2015.
“AFL Goldfields has now contributed
around $30,000 in grants after two
years of our Club Development
Grants program. We are thrilled that
it will contribute to over $120,000 of
improvements for facilities across the
AFL Goldfields region”, he said.
“We look forward to opening
up applications for these Club
Development Grants again in season
2017”.

Dear Editor,
I have been living in this
town for over 20 years and
it is suddenly booming, infrastructure issues, traffic
problems to say the least. I
have problems with traffic
congestion each and every
morning; parking is a problem in town, not enough of

everything to look after a
growing town. Why should
we support the extra growth
of Bacchus Marsh; what positives will we gain?
Bacchus Marsh was once
a peaceful town with a relaxed country feel, now it’s
no different to Werribee!
Bacchus Marsh will lose its

WHAT’S ON

reputation thanks to companies (developers) looking
to make money by ruining
towns with what I believe is
over development.
Please, let’s look after our
beautiful town.

Dear Editor,
I have been following, with
increasing concern, the
wimbledon-esque
correspondence on the Moorabool
News Facebook page over
Apple 98.5 FM withdrawal
(it is also unclear if this is
temporary or on-going) of

The Moorabool News’ weekly community news spot
from the community radio
station.
I am confused as to the reason for this action. The arguments from AppleFM appear to be contradictory and
at times contrary to their

previous line of argument.
My reading of the action is
that it is a clear restriction of
Freedom of Speech: I will be
writing to AppleFm to convey my thoughts.

Historic Property
Close To Ballarat

Geoff White
CEO, REIV

13 Yendon-Egerton Road, Yendon
Price: $469,000

Regional Victoria is increasingly attractive to investors
and homebuyers, as home
prices in and around Melbourne continue to increase.

Lifestyle: Every once in a while, an opportunity presents
itself to secure a part of Victoria’s history but they rarely
present themselves as finely as this property does.
Features: This solid brick home (formerly the “Forest Home
Hotel”), has been well cared over the years with the approx.
6 acres of land made up of approx. 14 titles with a further
crown lease of 1.2 acres to the rear of the property. There is
plenty of space to graze a few animals with a spring fed dam
for gardens and stock, while various sheds cover: chickens,
vehicles, workshop facilities and storage options. A tennis
court, a 48,075L water capacity and 1.7kW solar system will
add immediate value and further appeal.
Location: With easy access to Ballarat, Geelong, Buninyong
and Melbourne, this well maintained country homestead
with a beautiful country outlook would be the perfect place
to call home.

This includes first time
investors, as there are a
number of regional areas,
including many closer to
Melbourne, that can be purchased at a relatively affordable price.
This is underlined by the
regional Victorian median
house price of $347,000,
compared to the Melbournewide median of $725,000.
Those considering investing in any form of property
across the state will often
see some terms used to discuss the investment’s performance - namely capital
growth, investment return
and gross rental yield.
The term capital growth is
often used in real estate to
describe the increase in the
price or value of a property.

For instance the median
price of a house in the Geelong suburb of Leopold in
the June quarter of this year
was $408,000 and in the

March quarter this year it
was $385,000.
Therefore
the
capital
growth is the difference
between the two, $23,000,
divided by the earlier figure,
$385,000, which equates to
six per cent over a year. Capital growth is also known as
capital appreciation.
Gross rental yield is a term
that describes the rental
return on a property investment. To calculate the
amount you divide the
yearly rental income by the
purchase price of the home.
For instance the yearly
rental income on a threebedroom house in Bendigo
is $14,560 and the median
house price is $357,500 resulting in a gross rental yield
of 4.1 per cent.
Meanwhile, the term investment return includes capital
growth and rental yield. It
enables investors to establish
the return on their investment over a period of time
– be it a quarter, a year or a
number of years.
Investors looking for comparative data on the investment potential of different
homes will find the REIV’s
website a useful source of
information.
The REIV produces median
house prices by suburb or
town every quarter, with
this information available
for free for homebuyers and
agents.
Our website also has data
on median weekly rents by
bedroom as well as gross
rental yields. For more information, visit reiv.com.au.

The family of Mark Stone deeply appreciate the many cards,
flowers, calls, hugs, continued support and comfort at our time
of sorrow, from relatives and friends and for keeping us in your
thoughts and prayers.
Very special thanks to the staff at Sunshine Hospital for their
care of Mark, to the Darley Football Club, Mick Crawford and
staff, and everyone who honoured Mark at his funeral to make
it a true reflection of the value of his life, and how sorely he will
be missed. He would’ve loved it.
Please accept this as our personal thanks.
Rest in Peace Mark

Make sure you don’t take lighthearted remarks much too
seriously - and don’t hesitate to laugh at your own foibles.

Division 1 v Ballarat
Both Grant Stirling’s and
Bill Hawken’s rink started
strongly and were able to
maintain their lead all day,
running out victors by seven
and five shots respectively.
In Steve Sullivan’s rink, Avenue trailed early (five shots
after 12 ends) but fought
back following the afternoon
tea break to draw level on
end 18. However, they could
not maintain the pressure on
their opponents, eventually
going down by six shots.
The fourth rink, “skipped”
by Dino Boratto, had a tough
day going down by 17 shots.

By Tyler Maher
Results – Round 2 v Romsey
Division One
It isn’t often that a 17-1, 51
shot victory is embroiled in
controversy.
But even with the overall
result well and truly decided
against Romsey at home, the
last end on Craig Norris’
rink erupted after the kitty
was moved before a measure
could be had.
This came after Norris had
fought back bravely from

a double digit deficit early,
and played an absolute belter with his final play of the
day to sit a bowl and stay for
what he thought was three
shots and a rink win, only
for the kitty to be shifted by
an errant boot and two shots
and a draw declared.
Justin Webster’s rink was
the beacon all day, bouncing back from a big loss last
week, to post a 44-12 victory
- a score line that was ruined
slightly by some ‘junktime’
Romsey numbers.
