MISSING –
Where is Albie? By Helen Tatchell

Albert ‘Albie’ Smith was due to go home the
morning he walked out of the Ballan Aged
Care facility and is still missing a week later.
Mr Smith, from Mt Doran, is 88-years old and relies heavily on heart medication
and morphine patches for back pain. He also left without his walking stick or
his walker.
Police say Mr Smith left the Ballan facility between 5.30am and 7.10am on
Monday 8 October.
“A confirmed witness came forward and said they had picked Mr Smith up on
Old Melbourne Road in Ballan and drove him to an address in Mt Egerton just
after 7.30am,” Sgt Michael Kearnes from Ballan Police said.
Mr Smith’s children, Geoff, Helen and Wendy attended two press conferences
at Ballan Police station and said the property at Mt Egerton belonged to a friend
of their father.
The friend was not home and the whereabouts of Mr Smith remained a mystery,
until last Thursday.
Inspector Brendon McCrory from Bacchus Marsh police said the police airwing,
SES, Ballan Police and Moorabool CIU have been conducting searches and door
knocks in the Mt Egerton and Morrisons areas.
“We had a call from a witness who said they saw Mr Smith at the Morrisons
cemetery on the Tuesday morning. Unfortunately, they did not come forward
until two days later,” he said.
“We have no new news or sightings since then and encourage the community
to please be vigilant and check all out buildings and sheds, as we continue our
search for Mr Smith.”
Amid tears and grave concerns, the family said Mr Smith needed to be back in
care for a while.
“He is a fiercely independent man and was determined to get home. He hated
where he was, and we were putting plans in place to get him home,” daughter
Wendy said.
“We feel he has taken the bull by the horns to try and get home himself,” she said.
“Dad has been a very strong-minded man all his life and would be in considerable
pain without his medication.”
Daughter Helen from Maldon said she believed her father may have had “to get
some aid and someone has helped him out, without realising he is an escapee!”
In 2016, Mr Smith received a Certificate of Achievement – Citizen of the Year
in the Moorabool Shire Australia Day awards for his service to the upkeep and
maintenance of the Morrisons cemetery.
Mr Smith had been in the Ballan Aged Care facility recovering from leg ulcers
for the past couple of months, and questions have arisen about his access out of
that facility without supervision.
“We can confirm that a Transitional Care Program (TCP) client left the Ballan
District Health & Care Hostel on Monday morning and is still missing,” an
unsigned and unnamed statement to the Moorabool News read.
“Our priority is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our client and supporting
the family through this difficult time.
“We are actively assisting in the search effort and reviewing arrangements at the
service to reassure the community of the safety of all residents of our service.”
And one last message from the family.
“Dad give us a call please. You are going home; we were not going to stop you
from going home. We really miss you dad.”
A plea from Mr Smith’s children (L-R) Geoff, Helen and Wendy, for any sightings or information. Inset:

Amen
to church
By Carol Saffer

The white weatherboard All Saints Anglican Church standing on a hill in Blackwood
since 1865 has been sold and deconsecrated.
The church set on 7000 square metres of land (just under two acres), sold for $500,000
on 25th July to Melbourne resident Nigel Edwards, after a calling for Expressions of
Interest.
According to a spokesman for the Anglican Church, All Saints was put on the market
because it was “surplus to requirements.”
By 2016 the church-going congregation had diminished to just two – Judith de Groot
who lived and worshipped in Blackwood for 30 years, and Ballarat resident Bruno
Micic who came to Blackwood for every church service – with Sunday service held
once a month before ceasing altogether.
Mrs de Groot says she is disappointed with the lack of communication from the
Anglican Diocese regarding the sale of the church, a sentiment echoed by long term
Blackwood resident Elizabeth Hall.
“It would have been good if the Diocese had let us know their intentions, even though
the church was closed,” says Mrs de Groot.
The Right Reverend Philip Huggins, Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of Melbourne
officiated at the Church’s deconsecration service, attended by eight Blackwood locals
and ex-residents, on 18 September this year.
Deconsecration is the act of removing a religious blessing from a place of worship in
order for the church to be sold, demolished or used for non-religious activities.
New owner of All Saints Mr Edwards who took possession of the property in September,
plans to use the property as a weekender saying he is “conscious of retaining it as it is.”
“The tennis court will still be open for community use,” he said.
Mr Edwards, familiar with the area having attended the Blackwood Easter Fair for the
past five years, met some of the local residents at a recent BBQ at the post office and has
joined the Blackwood Progress Association.
He says there is considerable work to be done on the building to make it habitable in
order to abide with planning permits and guidelines, with restumping, rewiring and
replumbing planned to take place over the next couple of years. FINAL HYMN SUNG - (L-R) Elizabeth Hall and Judith De Groot at the now closed Blackwood

Science Week, where photographs, rock and fossil samples are on display at the Lerderderg
Library.
Geologist Roger Piersons says the Bacchus Marsh area “has never been in a better spot” for
prehistoric discovery.
“Bacchus Marsh is rich in sites that tell the story of extreme events. 480 million years of
geological history has left Bacchus Marsh with some of the most interesting sites in the
world,” he said.
Mr Piersons will be a guest speaker at ‘Bacch-Chat’ in the Lerderderg Library at 10 am on
Saturday 3 November 2018.
The library display is sponsored by the Bacchus Marsh Council Trench Reserve Committee
of Management and the Geological Society of Australia (Victoria).

Fossil Triassic Horsetail: During the Triassic period flowering plants had not evolved.
Fossils of ginkgo, ferns, cycads, conifers and liverworts have been identified at Council
Trench Reserve. This small fossil has preserved the distinctive ribs of Horsetails. They are
220 million years old.

Graptolite 480 m: 480 million years ago our area was under the sea. Small marine
creatures, ‘v’ shaped Graptolites, were washed into sediment deposited on the sea floor.
They were pressed into their shape and preserved in grey slates now found in the Bacchus
Marsh area.

Too close for comfort
By Caitlin Bewley (1st Yr Swinburne)

A 47-year-old man who was at the end of a four-car pile-up, attended the Bacchus Marsh
Magistrates’ court on Friday October 5 to contest a careless driving charge.
John Galea was allegedly travelling too close to the car in front of his, soon colliding with
said car and contributing to an accident.
According to the accused’s lawyer, Galea was the fourth car in a four-car pile-up and not the
driver who caused the accident.
“It all happened quickly in front of him,” the accused’s lawyer told the court.
“He [Galea] was at a safe distance but the collision was unavoidable. No one else in the
accident faced any charges.”
“I’m not unsympathetic, but in a way, it speaks for itself,” Magistrate Gregory Robinson said.
“He’s meant to be at a distance where he is able to stop without ramming into the back of

Magistrate Robinson served Galea with an adjourned undertaking without conviction.
