Dear Editor,
I wrote to you previously expressing my
concern at the changes to the main street
of Ballan. Now I wish to add further to my
concerns, not only at the loss of ambience in
the street but that after many weeks of trying
to walk on stones, the Shire has decided to
put asphalt instead of concrete as the main
part of the footpath to walk on. To date only
a small area of the street has been done but
I would like to express my concern that the
asphalt is a dreadful substitute for concrete.
As a person with a disability I need a firm,
flat surface to walk on and the asphalt does
not provide this. It is uneven and not as level
and a danger for persons like myself. I am
not concerned with asphalt near the gutters
but where people walk; this should not be
the choice of material for a path.
I also pointed out that the roses should be saved and replanted to continue to provide
colour in our street. If the shire wants to
know what green weeds look like they only
need to look at what was planted in the
McLean Reserve.

Shout out Mother’s Day High Tea

Continuous rain did not dampen the support for the High

Country Fire Authority.
The first call for volunteers occurred after concerns were
raised in 2011 over the use of chemicals in fire training,
including firefighting foams at the former CFA Training
College at Fiskville.
The State Government was worried about the potential risk
of chemical residues affecting the local environment as well
as human health.
The site has since been shut down.
Mount Wallace farmer Scott Young, who attended Fiskville
State School from 1977-84, said he was contemplating taking
part in the health study. (L-R) Marilyn Baker and Bev Bush sell hand

“But I think it’s an excellent idea, particularly for those
people who have any worries. It would be great for their
peace of mind.”
Mr Young, a father-of-two, farms a property about 3km west
of Fiskville.
His next door neighbour, 33-year old Andrew Wells said
he would also give “some thought” about taking part in the
health study.
The Government held a parliamentary inquiry into the
operations of the training college and offered health checks
to anyone who worked, trained or otherwise had any contact
with the training college.
That initial offer was later extended to include past students Ruth Bowden and James Hay Cr. Paul Tatchell has his cup topped up with tea Marg McKay

and staff of the local school.
The latest call for action simply serves as a reminder for
people who now wish to take up the latest offer.
As was the case with the previous offer, school students and
staff this time will undergo a health check and if need be
they will be referred to a surveillance program.
An independent medical provider may determine it
appropriate for some of the former students and staff to take
part in the five-year health surveillance program.
The program involves an annual medical assessment
including a health questionnaire and a detailed medical
examination and pathology.

interested should register with the Health Surveillance Co-

A Big Weekend at the Club

We had a big weekend at the club rooms over the weekend. We
had ladies night on Friday for the Cobras women to let their hair
down and have a chance to catch up and leave the husbands at
home. We also had the Jazz and Shiraz night for the adults to
do a bit of grown up socialising with some yummy food from
The Plough and some sweet jazz music. It was a huge turn out
and turned out to be a great night for everyone. We had our
second Family Dinner Night on Sunday hosted by the Under
12s. They have both had a great turn out so far this year and the
kids really enjoy getting to catch up outside of training. They

need to move around more and utilise the space. The seniors
are starting to play as a team and use each other. The Under 12
reserves turned up flat and lacked the effort required to match a
very good team. Sebastopol’s speed and skills were better than
ours. BM 0-2-2 Sebas 7-5-49. The under 12 Seniors got a jump on
Sebastopol early in the first quarter and that was the difference
in an otherwise hard fought game. The boys who came in to
the team, Bailey and Ymir, took their chances and they paid off.
BM 8-10-58 Sebas 4-2-26. The Under 14 Reserves will gain some
confidence from their win. They still need some more fitness to
make contests and their voices need work but it was a great first
win for the team. BM 7-5-47 Sebas 1-4-10. The Under 14 Seniors
was a great game to watch. The boys showed some real flight
and worked really well as a unit. BM 8-4-52 Sebas 2-4-16. The 7a Grant Street 3340
