Moorabools Citizen of the Year, Ballark property owner and resident John Molesworth. Photo Helen Tatchell
By Kate Taylor
Meet John Molesworth Moorabools 2017
Citizen of the Year.
More than a farmer and a family man, Mr
Molesworth was nominated for the award
for his contributions to a number of volunteer
organisations.
Hes also a humble man.
Im pretty embarrassed about the whole
thing, you dont get involved in community
things to win awards, Mr Molesworth told
the Moorabool News.
I was thinking when I was nominated
that I wouldnt be winning. Ive enjoyed my

involvement with the community.


Mr Molesworth is a Life Member of the
Ballan Cricket Club, having served 50 years
with the club, as well as being involved at
playing and committee levels with the Ballan
Football Club and the Ballan Jockey Club.
Mr Molesworth has also had long-term
involvements with the Ballarat Turf club, is a
Life Member of the Ballarat Agricultural and
Pastoral Society, and has served 50 years as a
volunteer with the Morrisons CFA.
The Ballark Gun Club, of which Mr
Molesworth is a founding member,
conducts a clay shoot four times a year on
his property Ballark; the organisation has
been instrumental in raising over $400,000

Call us about
Evaporative
Cooling Deals

for organisations and charities over the last


30 years.
But its his work within community sporting
groups that Mr Molesworth hopes will take
the limelight of the award, with good reason.
Ive always been interested in sport, but
I think the good thing is to acknowledge
someone with a sporting background, I
think its important for young people to play
sport and be healthy, its character building.
If you live in a community I think its only
fair that you get involved and do as much as
you can.
And I just think that young people should
actively be involved in sport from a young

age, Ive got four grandchildren and theyre


all sport-mad, and theyre aged from seven
to 12, and theyre mad-keen on their cricket
and footy and netball.
Mr Molesworth is, slightly reluctantly,
looking forward to the award presentation.
I suppose I am now, I didnt expect
anything like this, and I think there are
plenty of other people that do heaps of good
things for the community.
Moorabool Shire Council will present the
2017 Australia Day Award Recipients at their
Australia Day community celebrations being
held this Thursday 26 January, from 8am at
the Public Hall in Bacchus Marsh.

An eventful New Years
Eve has seen little Lachlan
Gazzola enter the world as
Moorabools first baby of
2017.
Sunbury parents Jess Gray
and Pete Gazzola left for
the Bacchus Marsh Hospital
among fireworks after Jess
water broke at midnight on
December 31.
It was quite a shock, Pete
said.
Traditionally we go up to
Lake Eildon every year to
celebrate New Years Eve,
weve spent quite a bit of
time there and thats where
we met, but this year we
thought it was probably getting a bit close to the due
date, so we stayed home.
We were actually just sitting around playing jenga,
having a quiet night in, and
then Jess water broke.
We went straight to the
hospital, but because the
contractions hadnt started
yet we were sent home. The
contractions then started at
around 3am and at midday
we rang the Hospital and
they said we should have
come in hours ago.
We went back in and everything went extremely
smoothly, it was only re-

Immature teen
gets jail

By Jessica Howard

Dream expires
By Kate Taylor
Land at Ballan earmarked
for Australias first GLBTI
(Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual,
Transgender,
Intersex)friendly retirement village is
now up for sale.
Its the latest step in the
projects turbulent history,
which has included many
planning permit variations
and VCAT appearances.
Linton Estate was set to be
a $30 million village with

more than 100 units many


of which had already been
pre-subscribed for sale.
A launch party celebrated
the turning of the first sod
had been held last year for
the project, however extensions on the planning permit due to financial difficulties with the project and a
subsequent VCAT decision
against a further extension
of the current permit, saw a
for sale sign appear on the
land early in the 2017 New
Year.

No building works have


commenced on the site since
2007, and original developer
Peter Dickson was not available for comment, however
a post on the Linton Estate
facebook page said, a new
application will be put in
(to council) after Linton
Estate consultants have finalised the funding to start
Linton Estate. This means
infrastructure and a couple
of display homes would be
built.

A 19-year-old who continued to re-offend despite being given a second chance


at life has been jailed for
six-months.
Ballan resident, Joshua Fuller appeared in the Ballarat
Magistrates Court on Friday
January 13 and Wednesday
January 18.
He will spend the next sixmonths in the Youth Justice
Centre after pleading guilty
to a number of charges including dangerous driving,
reckless conduct endangering serious injury and
driving with a suspended
license.
The court heard that on
November 26 last year the
Fuller was caught driving
an unregistered ford sedan
at 130km/h on Old Ballan
Road, near Gordon.
When police attempted to
intercept the accused, who
held a suspended learners permit, he sped off into
the Whipsticks State Forest, increasing his speed
to 145km/h and narrowly
missing a man who was
whipper-snipping on the
side of the road.
Fuller had two female passengers in the car at the time,
the court heard.

On a separate occasion,
Fuller, who is known to police, was intercepted on Halletts Way in Bacchus Marsh.
A tyre, which had been stolen from a McPherson Street
towing business on November 2, was located attached
to the vehicle.
Fuller spoke briefly with
police before fleeing the
scene in a westerly direction
with no seatbelt on.
The incidents occurred just
two months after the accused appeared in the same
court following a string of
break-ins throughout the
Moorabool area.
At the time, he received
a community corrections
order and what the Magistrate referred to as a second
chance at life (The MN
04/10/16).
Fullers lawyer, Tim Sullivan, referred to his clients
recent behaviour as appalling and said the only explanation was the use of the
drug ice.
This (jail) is where he belongs. He is an unacceptable
risk to the community, he
said.
His father tells me of his
(Fullers) drug use since the
age of ten. He hasnt grown
mentally, emotionally or

intelligently since he was 16


because he has been under
the influence of ice.
He has fried his young
brain and he cant think for
himself.
Magistrate Ronald Saines
agreed Fuller was an immature young offender, adding
that he was lucky his actions
didnt result in injury or
death.
If it had, you would be in
the County Court facing a
sentence of multiple years,
he said.
Fuller was assessed by a
representative from the
Youth Justice Centre, who
deemed the 19-year-old eligible for youth detention.
Upon his release, Fuller
will be placed on a 12-month
community corrections order with conditions to complete 60-hours of unpaid
work.
His drivers license was disqualified and cancelled for
12 months.
Magistrate Saines said any
repeat behaviour would
result in a much crueler
punishment.
If you use your opportunity in the community to reoffend I will be dealing with
you and we wont have you
on the streets again.

Waiting for
a rainy day

By Kate Taylor

One of the photographs by Neville Hiatt on display at the MoorArt Space at the Lerderderg
Library in Bacchus Marsh.

See what the lens


can capture

By Kate Taylor
Art space at the Lerderderg Library has
opened up a new access point to locals for
artist Neville Hiatt.
Hiatt currently has two exhibitions featuring
at the Main St Bacchus Marsh Library,
providing locals with the opportunity to
view his insightful photography.
A Ballarat-based artist, Hiatt explained
that the location has a big advantage over
traditional art galleries.
Ive been looking at new exhibition venues
to make photography as accessible to the
public as possible, Hiatt said.
I really like going to the alternate venues,
for the public who may not want to go to art
galleries.
Both exhibitions are complimentary; set to
storylines in two series that, for Hiatt, have a

process to them that is different to his former


landscape works.

The first series is subtitled Sometimes We


Arent Equipped Or Prepared, and it loosely
came to be because eight years ago I had a
really bad accident which kind of ended my
working life, so its heavily influenced in my
life and my story, things happen that were
not prepared for, and we have to learn new
things to deal with whatever happens.

Series two, subtitled Behind Closed


Doors, has a focus of trying to give voice to
topics that as a society were getting better
at talking about, but are still not as good
at talking about as we should be mental
health, theres a few different things I pick
up on throughout the storyline of the series.
The exhibitions, featuring 10 photographs in
each series, can be viewed at the Lerderderg
Library until 27 January.

Always obey the warning signs at level


crossings and take care around trains.

value, the interest payments


would have continued over
the intervening period.
Council borrows money
all the time, to itemise and
say money was borrowed
for Bungaree, well theres
money borrowed for all sorts
of things, council has significant borrowings for things
right across the municipality. But in this particular case,
we could get a better return,
pay off that money for what
it was originally earmarked
for, and have more money as
well.
Interest rates are at an alltime low, and the reality is
the people in the west pay
their rates too, its a circular
argument. The interest payments over that time, itd still
be far better off to do what
Im proposing.
Woodlands Ward Councillor Pat Toohey supported
delaying the sale, while
Central Ward Councillor
Paul Tatchell questioned it,
saying that the matter had
already gone through two
previous councils and was
just a stalling proposal on
the sale of a block of land.
The motion to delay the sale
was passed.

The $64,000 question


The question of whether or not a sewerage plan would increase the value
of the former Bungaree police station site could well be more or less than a
$64,000 one.
The Moorabool News asked local real estate agent Geoff Taylor, from John
Kontek real estate in Ballan, his thoughts on the propertys potential value
increase.
I dont know about increasing the value of the property, but it would make it easier
to sell the property if there was sewerage, especially with all the restrictions on
septic tanks that there are, Mr Taylor said.
But whether it would increase the value or not, thats a debatable question its
a how-long-is-a-piece-of-string question.
Meanwhile, the Bungaree Historical Society confirmed that it had no objections
to the sale of the former Bungaree Police Station Site, on the Corner of Lesters
Road and Wallace-Bungaree Road.
Weve done a survey on it, and theres been a plaque put up as well. If there
were remnants of the station then it would be a different story, but theres just the
path left there, said Society member Dennis Spielvogel.

The sale of the old Bungaree


police station site has been
put off amid hopes of a better local property market.
Originally purchased by
the two adjoining shires
more than 30 years ago, the
site is owned by Moorabool
Shire Council and was to be
sold to fund, in part, councils contribution toward the
construction of the Bungaree
Recreation Reserve community hub.
With the hub long-since
completed, a motion came
before the December 7 council meeting to put off the
sale of the property with the
hope of getting more money
for it at a later date.
West Ward Councillor Tom
Sullivan moved the motion,
saying that if a sewerage
scheme for Bungaree is included in an upcoming fiveyear water plan due to be released by Central Highlands
Water, then property values
in the area would increase.
It just seems prudent to
me to wait until the five-year
water plan is in place to look
at selling the property, if
sewerage came into the area

it could be worth a lot more


to council and the community. In my view, its a sound
financial decision, Cr Sullivan said.
If it was my property, Id
do the very same thing, wait
until we see what happens.
If its not in the five-year
plan, then so be it, we can
sell it anyway.
CHW is expected to release
a draft of the five-year plan
in early to mid 2017.
Council did, however, borrow money to pay for its $1.1
million contribution to the
Bungaree project but Cr
Sullivan dismissed the question of whether or not the interest payments being made
on the borrowed amount
would be greater than the
increased amount that council would be able to get if it
holds off on selling the land.
The cost of the interest payments is also set to continue
until the release of the final
version of the plan, with
just the draft expected to be
released as late as mid-next
year.
Even if no sewerage is nominated by CHW in its plan
and therefore the land is
sold without appreciating in

Magistrate
appalled
and
sickened

The Moorabool News 24 January, 2017 Page 7

By Steven Barnes

A 38 year-old man has left a Bacchus


Marsh magistrate disgusted after
two shocking incidents last year at a
Ballan petrol station on the Western
Highway.
Ashley Woodroffe was charged
in relation to willful and indecent
exposure.
The first offence occurred on
September 19, 2016 when a mother
and daughter entered a McDonalds
restaurant near the BP service
station.
It was alleged as the pair walked
towards their car to exit the
facility the mother observed Mr
Woodroffe in his car with his seat
back masturbating while facing the
childrens playground attached to
the fast food restaurant.
One month later on October 16
another woman noticed Woodroffe
masturbating in front of the
childrens play area at the same
location.
He was later arrested, telling
police that he was changing from a
tracksuit to shorts and that he was
there to buy parts for his car.
Currently living with his mother in
Ballan, the panel beater has relevant
prior history dating back over ten
years for similar offences.
Magistrate Gregory Robinson was
appalled and sickened by the
mans actions telling the courtroom
it sends shivers up my spine.
Its absolutely disgusting... and it
makes me feel sick.
Woodroffes defence claimed that
children couldnt have seen what he
was doing because of the height of
the car, and argued his client should
avoid a prison term.
Magistrate Robison however took a
very dim view of the crimes.
I need to denounce this
appropriately.
Woodroffe was sentenced to two
weeks in prison.

Teaching each
other skills

By Jessica Howard

A link between two Darley


Neighbourhood House course
programs is bridging the gap
between adults with disabilities
and students.
The Avenue Group, which
provides an alternative program
to secondary students not suited
to the school environment, has
teamed up with members of the
Creative Art Disability Group.
Members of the two groups join
together on a Friday afternoon
and take part in a variety of art

and craft activities.


Hope, the creative art disability
group tutor, said after being the
only class instructor for the past
13-years, it was great to have some
fresh new faces.
Its a fabulous collaboration
between the two groups and its
very beneficial for the students
to be a part of a community, she
said.
The students are very sensitive to
the needs of those in the [creative
art disability] group; we have some
people that are non-verbal but the

students have learnt to read them


and can now confidently converse
with them.
The two groups met at Darley
Neighbourhood
House
in
late November, where they
made and decorated their own
dreamcatchers.
Avenue Group Tutor, Tabatha said
the collaboration had a number of
invaluable benefits.
Its giving these students,
who for whatever reason are
just not suited to the normal
school environment, a sense of

It has also provided a stepping

Residents
object to
towers
By Kate Taylor
An NBN tower will be built
in Greendale but it wont
provide the fibre optic technology first promised to
residents.
Official approval for the
tower was granted at the December 7 Moorabool Shire
Council meeting, following
a planning permit application for the Kangaroo Road
site.
The 40m high tower will be
sited on forested Crown land
at the northern periphery of
Greendales residential area.
A total of 14 objections to
the project were lodged.
Objections to the development generally related to
visual appearance, health
effects, inferior service compared to other options, loss
of property values and impact on wildlife habitat.
A further tower is set to be
out-posted near Dales Creek,
and was dependent on the
Greendale tower going
ahead due to infrastructure
requirements.
The tower will be joined
by two dish antennas, three
panel antennas, two outdoor
cabinets at ground level, security fencing and ancillary
equipment.
One of the applicants, Matt
Evans from Ericsson, spoke
at the meeting, noting that
the tower has the capacity to

carry mobile telco antennas,


and will enhance broadband
to the area.
West Ward Councillor Tom
Sullivan pointed out that
some residents were disappointed with the fixed
wireless towers, as they had
hoped for fibre optic.
Mr Evans responded that
the area was designated for
fixed wireless as the best
available technology.
Objector Matthew Ayres
lives 300m from the tower
site and said not only will
it not meet service delivery,
with slower speed and less
bandwidth, but the site is on
a ridgeline of the Wombat
State Forest.
I will see it from my backyard, its too close to existing
houses, he told the meeting.
Objector David Boylan told
the meeting that in places
such as the UK, towers are
disguised to be made to look
like the natural landscape
such as trees but not in this
case.
This is disgusting, no effort
has been made its disgraceful, he told the meeting.
Do it once, do it right, do
fibre.
Woodlands Ward Councillor Pat Toohey moved the
motion to approve the application, stating that he had
advocated for it for a long
time.

News

This could save and


change lives, he said.
Meanwhile, the application for a tower at Struck Oil
Track in Greendale caused
controversy.
Designed similar to the
Kangaroo Road proposal,
the fixed wireless design
had Central Ward Councillor Paul Tatchell objecting
to the lack of service and the
poorer option being offered
to residents.
Mr Tatchell told the meeting that the fixed wireless
tower would not provide the
level of service originally
promised.
Who is going to pull the
tower down it has to come
down to update it if ever,
who wears this responsibility? Cr Tatchell said.
I agree with the objectors, this is not what was
promised.
Applicant Matt Evans did
not answer the question put
forward by Cr Tatchell but
went onto say the tower
would potentially become
more relevant in the future
if more mobile telcos come
forward.
Woodlands Ward Councillor Pat Toohey moved the
motion to approve the tower.
I have worked very hard to
get this for the residents, he
told the meeting.
The motion was passed.

Pedestrian safety forthcoming

By Kate Taylor

The safety of pedestrians on a busy Bacchus


Marsh street is set to improve in the New
Year but without the knowledge of one
local councillor, it appears.
A local bus driver contacted the Moorabool
News about the issue of the lack of a
pedestrian crossing and bus shelters on
Bennett St, Bacchus Marsh, saying it presents
a danger to pedestrians.
Public Transport Victoria spokesperson
Nicholas White told the Moorabool News that
two stops would be moved and upgraded on
Bennett St in the New Year to improve safety
for passengers and pedestrians.
The new bus stops will be fully accessible
and shelters will protect passengers from any
inclement weather, Mr White explained.
Construction is due to start in the first
quarter of this year and be complete shortly
after.
But its the pedestrian crossing that is most
important, according to the concerned bus
driver.
With the senior citizens centre across the
road from the shopping centre, those people
are struggling to get across what is a major
road. They dont move very quickly, and they
stress a bit I think, and they dont need it at
that age. And theres a kindergarten across

the road too, its ridiculous that weve been


waiting this long for a crossing, he said.
Weve been asking for a crossing to be put
there, and Tonia Dudzik said on facebook
that she hasnt had any people calling council
saying we need a crossing there, and I find
that hard to believe.
The Moorabool News asked Cr Dudzik
if she thought a crossing on Bennett St is
required.
A pedestrian crossing at Bennett Street
near the bus stop and Village Shopping
Centre would make it safer for children and
the elderly to cross the road. I will make
further enquiries and raise the need for a
pedestrian crossing, Cr Dudzik said.
However, when the Moorabool News
asked council whether the construction
of a pedestrian crossing would be its
responsibility or that of VicRoads it turns
out, the project is already well on the radar.
There is currently a pedestrian refuge next
to the Bennett Street bus stops. Council is
undertaking design work to convert this to
a designated pedestrian crossing, factoring
in the proposed bus stop upgrades that are
scheduled to occur early this year by PTV,
read a council statement.
Following completion of the design,
the project will be referred to the capital
program for funding.

VALE George Bourke-Finn


By Jessica Howard
A former Officer in Charge at
Ballan Police Station has died
aged 90.
George Bourke-Finn passed
away peacefully on December
24, surrounded by his family.
At a funeral service held in
Ballarat on January 3, Sgt.
Michael Kearnes, the current
OIC of Ballan, said Mr BourkeFinn was a major part of the 150year legacy of policing history
and service given to the Ballan
community.
When you ask people in
Ballan who remember George,
they say many things along the
lines of dutiful, devoted to his
duty, smart and a good man,
Mr Kearnes said.
The best expressions Ive
heard which sums up Georges
commitment to the Ballan
community is one where

uniformly people say he was


the OIC Ballan for over 20-years.
In truth, George was at Ballan
for only eight years.
This, I believe, is a reflection of
the impact he had on the town
and its people. George was a
part of the community and
admired and respected.
Mr Bourke-Finn joined Victoria
Police on August 2, 1960.
He commenced his service
from the St Kilda Road Police
Depot and worked at a number
of Victorian stations over the
years, including Richmond,
Horsham and Bacchus Marsh.
He commenced work in Ballan
on September 30, 1971 and
retired eight years later.
Mr Bourke-Finn received a
number of awards throughout
his career, many of which
were bestowed by the Chief
Commissioner of Police.

Mr Kearnes said that on three


occasions, Mr Bourke-Finn
received a Chief Commissioners
commendation for courage,
devotion to duty, and bravery in
arresting dangerous and armed
offenders.
On one occasion, Mr BourkeFinn was off duty and unarmed.
Mr Kearnes said a testament
to Mr Bourke-Finn was the
recurring words in his service
history, including initiative,
tenacity, determination, and
dedication and devotion to his
duty.
George Bourke-Finn was the
son of George and Agnes of
Wunghnu; the brother of Jack,
Nancy, James, Monica, Mary,
Cathy (all dec.) and Sheila; and
the much-loved father of Lynne
and partner Vanda.
He is now at rest and reunited
with Ruth.

Going, going . nearly gone


By Jessica Howard
The neglect of a significant
Bacchus Marsh dwelling could
mean history is lost forever.
Webster Brothers Yard, located
at 14 Graham Street, has not been
lived in for more than a decade.
The brick house is un-kept and
falling apart.
Erected in 1872, the residence
is a rare surviving example of a
Victorian gothic style cottage.
Behind it are the remnants of
the former prefabricated Iron
Church, which was used between 1855 and 1877.
Community advocate for the
National Trust of Australia,
Caitlin Mitropoulos said while
the dwelling was protected
by Moorabool Shire Councils
Heritage Overlay, the problem
seemed to be a case of demoli-

tion by neglect, meaning the


owners may allow the residence
to fall into a dire state so they
have a better argument to demolish it in the future.
She said the property was classified at a local level under the
Heritage Overlay, so any classifications administered by Council
were bound by the Planning and
Environment Act, rather than
the Heritage Act.
In 2015, a Heritage Study conducted under the Moorabool
Planning Scheme stated that the
dwelling demonstrated the early
development of the Bacchus
Marsh Township.
The study revealed that the
brick and stone house was a rare
example of a cottage with a detached kitchen from the 1870s
period.
The pre-fabricated church ruins

were considered to be of historical significance due to their


potential to yield important information about Victorias early
history, the study revealed.
Moorabool Shire Council CEO,
Rob Croxford told The Moorabool News that the building was
currently protected under a heritage overlay, which would trigger a planning permit for any
works, including demolition.
That is the most appropriate
protection Council can provide,
he said.
There are no mechanisms
Council can use to force owners
to maintain structures.
Should any future works be
undertaken; it would be during
this phase that Council would
make decisions as to the appropriateness of any proposals from
the owner.

Keep your
paddocks
covered
By Kate Taylor
The naked truth is that,
when it comes to serrated
tussock, baring all is a no-no.
Competitive ground cover
is the message from the
Victorian Serrated Tussock
Working Party this January,
and throughout the warmer
months bare ground provides perfect conditions for
the promiscuous weed to
thrive.
Weather conditions are already providing for prolific
seeding.
The challenge for every
land manager, farmer or
otherwise, is to maintain
grass cover in the months
ahead. Things are starting
to warm up and dry out, and
the growth of most grasses
will be slowing down. The
Serrated Tussock is seeding, those seeds are maturing and when we get a hot
spell the whole seed-heads
will come off the plants and
blow across the landscape,

explained VSTWP Extension


Officer Roger MacRaild.
It is a legal requirement of
any landowner with Serrated Tussock infestation
to prevent its growth and
spread - and the community
led Victorian Serrated Tussock Working Party is helping landowners to do this
effectively.
However, prevention is
better than cure. If seeds
blow onto your place, dont
give them a chance to get a
foothold in any numbers.
Ensure good cover to keep
them at bay and treat any
plants you do find when
there are only a few.
One way to maintain competitive cover is to ensure
you dont mow lawns or
graze paddocks too short.
Grasses keep energy stored
toward the base of their
leaves, and when we mow
or graze too short it removes
that energy store, and stresses the grass making it less
able to compete. This results

News

in bare ground allowing


weeds to get their chance.
We can still control fire risk
and not encourage weeds by
leaving a few centimetres of
height.
Moving stock off a paddock to rest it before the
grass is eaten too low allows
the grasses to regain their
energy stores and maintain
good cover. Not only does
this reduce the cost and effort of weed control, it can
lead to greater productivity as the paddocks recover
more quickly.
Mr MacRaild is visiting
properties south and east of
Ballan to discuss the issues
with landowners and help
with planning to prevent or
treat Serrated Tussock.

Motorists urged to think


about fire safety

After a wetter-than-average
Spring across the region,
motorists planning on driving around Victoria this
summer should take a few
minutes to ensure they understand the heightened
bushfire risk.
RACV General Manager
Motor
Insurance
Mark
Geraghty said there is a lot
of vegetation that poses a
significant bushfire danger
across all areas of Victoria.
We urge people planning
to drive in rural and regional
Victoria to take steps to protect themselves.
Motorists should monitor
weather conditions and be
prepared to defer travel in
high-risk bushfire areas on
days of extreme conditions.

It is important to understand Victorias Fire Danger


Ratings and consider what
would be the trigger for you
to cancel your plans or cut a
trip short to return to a safer
area, he said.
Motorists need to stay informed and be prepared to
alter their plans.
While it is safest to stay
away from high-risk areas, if
you have to travel it is critical

Small changes
needed to be
healthier
By Kate Taylor
Too much alcohol and not
enough vegetables but
overall, Moorabool residents
are on par with the states
average health results.
The latest VicHealth data
shows Moorabool has an
overall health and wellbeing score of 78.7 out of 100 compared with the Victorian
average of 77.3.
The VicHealth Indicators
Survey is a major population
survey conducted every four
years to measure a range of
factors that impact on individual and community
wellbeing.
Moorabools VicHealth Indicators Survey 2015 data
provides a snapshot of the
health and wellbeing of the
local community.
VicHealth CEO Jerril Rechter said the data would help
council plan for the future.

Findings for Moorabool include:


* Just over six out of 10 (63.1 per cent) of Moorabool
residents agreed that they felt safe walking alone in their
local area after dark, which is similar to the Victorian
estimate (55.1 per cent)
* Almost two out of five (38.8 per cent) of Moorabool
residents were identified as being at risk of short-term
harm from alcohol in a given month, significantly higher
than the Victorian estimate (29.4 per cent)
* Moorabool residents ate an average of 2.4 serves of
vegetables per day, which is similar to the Victorian
average of 2.2 but less than the recommended five
serves per day
This data will be invaluable to Moorabool in developing its Municipal Public
Health and Wellbeing Plan,
while also providing an opportunity for residents to assess their individual health
and wellbeing with that of
their local community, and
identify ways they can live
even healthier lives, Ms Rechter said.
Small changes over time
can make a big difference.

Setting simple goals, like


eating one extra piece of
fruit or vegetable per day or
going for an additional walk
each week can make major
differences to our health and
wellbeing in the long term.
Its important to provide
people with evidence-based
information about how to
stay well, so that Victorians
can make informed choices
to help them live healthier,
happier lives.

can also download the new,


free VicEmergency app for
smartphones and tablet
computers that provides
weather warnings and information about what to do
during a fire.
Mr Geraghty said there are
some steps a motorist can
take to protect themselves if
caught in their car during a
bushfire emergency.
Take 10 minutes to learn
about how to increase your
chance of survival if you
are ever caught in a grass or
bushfire.
More information about
how to prepare for and
survive a bushfire is available from CFA online at cfa.

K5 Release
Sites

By Kate Taylor
A rabbit virus will be released across Australia but
Agriculture Victoria refuses
to specify any release sites
within Moorabool.
The release of a new strain
of Rabbit Haemorrhagic
Disease, known as RHDV1
K5 or K5 is being planned
for this year at 418 sites
across Australia in an effort
to control rabbits and their
negative impacts on agricultural production and native
ecosystems.
An AV map of release sites
appear to show one or two
sites in or near Moorabool
however AV refused to specify any locations, or confirm
any Moorabool release sites.
A total of 755 expressions of
interest were received from
community groups across
Australia wanting to take
part in the national roll-out
of the new virus; of these,
355 originated from Victoria,
resulting in 150 sites being
selected for release in early
2017.
The Victorian release of K5
is the culmination of work
undertaken by the Invasive

Thoughtless campers have


left several unattended
campfires over the past few
days in parks and reserves
across the Grampians region, increasing the risk of
bushfires that could threaten
communities.
Forest Fire Management
Victorias Grampians Region
Manager Forest and Fire
Operations Peter Kambouris
has issued a stern warning to campers and holiday
makers who are flocking to
the regions forests, parks
and reserves for the 2017
holiday season.
Despite recent rainfall
across some parts of the region, forecasts indicate high
fire danger ratings during
the coming days and weeks.
Campers are reminded to
make sure they are informed
before heading into the
bush, and to practice good
campfire safety.
One of the biggest bushfire
risks on public land during
summer remains unattended camp fires that have not

Camping safety
Never leave a campfire unattended.
Do you need to light a fire at all.
If you choose to light a campfire make sure you comply
with campfire safety rules or risk a large fine.
Clear three metres of ground and airspace around your
fire of flammable materials such as leaves and twigs.
Put your fire out properly with WATER not soil. If a fire is
cool to touch, it is safe to leave.
Park information and closures www.parks.vic.gov.au
or 13 19 63.
been extinguished correctly.
The message is simple:
always have an adult attending your campfire and
ensure your campfire is cool
to touch before leaving.
Your campfire should be
extinguished with water
and not soil.
Mr Kambouris said most
campers do the right thing,
unfortunately theres a minority of campers who do
not.
For the sake of the local
communities and the environment we urge people to
show some common sense

and consider whether or not


they need a campfire, if it is
allowed, and what restrictions may apply at their chosen campsite.
We want people to enjoy
themselves and the outdoors, but they must understand that using our forests,
parks and reserves also
comes with greater risk and
responsibility this time of
year to be bushfire safe.
Poor campfire practices
can put nearby communities
at risk. No fires are permitted on days of Total Fire
Ban, Mr Kambouris said.

Buying regional
affordable

of $250,000 and $249,975


respectively.

Further afield, Maryborough - north of Ballarat - is


one of Victorias most affordable towns with a median
house price of $213,750.

Geoff White
CEO, REIV
The latest REIV data shows
there are still affordable opportunities for buyers to enter the property market near
some of Victorias fastest
growing regional cities.
While Ballarat Central enjoyed strong growth in the
year to September - with
turnover of 254 properties
and price growth of 5.8 per
cent to a median of $344,000
- the towns outskirts continue to allow buyers to get
a foothold on the property
ladder for significantly less.
Within five kilometres of
the Ballarat CBD, Redan,
Black Hill and Ballarat East
are all more affordable alternatives with median house
prices below the $300,000
barrier.
Redan recorded a median
house price of $235,000 in
September; Black Hill had
a median of $270,000, while
buyers could purchase in
Ballarat East for a median
price of $287,000.
Buyers should also consider

With a median house price


of $675,000, Geelong has experienced some of the states
highest annual price growth.
However, savvy buyers can
still snap up a bargain in a
number of suburbs on the
citys outskirts.

Buyers can purchase a home


in nearby Whittington for
a median price of $275,000,
with the suburb recording
moderate annual growth of
five per cent.

Other areas offering affordability on Geelongs outskirts include Norlane with


a median house price of
$226,505; Corio, with a median of $244,000; and Newcomb, with a median house
price of $298,000.

REIV data shows there are


also affordable areas recording solid growth near
Mildura, which has enjoyed
a high turnover of properties over the year (568 sales)
and a median house price of
$260,000.
About 10 minutes away,
Merbein is one of the states
fastest growing and most
affordable towns in Victoria with a median house
price of $197,500 while Red
Cliffs median house price is
$206,250.

DEATH NOTICE

PROVENZANO, Salvatore Sam


7.11.1933 21.1.2017
Passed away surrounded by his loving family
Dearly loved and treasured husband of Antonietta.
Much loved, cherished and respected father and father-inlaw of Josie and Frank, Carmela (dec.), Frankie and Rose.
Adored and devoted Nonno of Marie and Carl, Anna
and Troy and Lateisha and Kristian.
A light from our family is gone,
A voice we loved is stilled
A place is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled
We have been privileged to have been embraced by
your love, kindness and generosity.
The passing of time will not diminish the memories we
have of you. Your influence will never be forgotten and
will live on in generations to come.
You have passed away into the loving and waiting Arms
of our Lord and He has freed you from your pain.
Rest in Eternal Peace

Celebrating with a
pardi or two
By Jessica Howard
Local greyhound trainer
Anthony Azzopardi had
more than just his birthday
to celebrate last month.
The Myrniong resident collected more than $200,000
in prize money over two
days at the Energis Ballarat
Cup and the Dapto Puppy
Classic.
Superstar dog Zambora
Brockie took out the 450-me-

tre final at the Ballarat event


held on December 2 - Azzopardis birthday.
He was also awarded the
$50,000 Country Cup bonus,
which, combined with first
prize, brought their nights
work to $127,000.
Just 24-hours earlier, Azzopardi had already celebrated
his first Group 2 win after
Topper Teretto, a 30.2-kilogram black greyhound, won
the Puppy Championship at

Dapto in New South Wales.


Azzopardi relocated to
Myrniong in 2015 after a
long history training greyhounds in Penrith.
Following the stunning
win in the Group 2 Ballarat
Cup, Azzopardi and Zambora Brockie targeted the
461-metre Group 1 Hobart
Thousand on December 22,
but were unsuccessful in
making the final.

Darley Cricket Club

Seniors
Things havent started the
way the Darley Lions would
have wanted in their Ballarat
Cricket Association First XI
top of the ladder clash with
Wendouree on Saturday at
Darley Park.
In the first week of their
two-day clash with the
second-placed Red Caps,
Darley had a day they soon
want to put behind them,
forced to field after Wendouree captain Cole Roscholler
called correctly at the toss
before his team amassed
a score of 4/307 off their 80
overs, a score which Lions
captain Heath Pritchard put
down to a combination of
good batting by the visitors
and poor fielding by his side.
They batted very well, but
we didnt do ourselves any
favours, Pritchard commented after the game.
We didnt field very well
we dropped a lot of catches
and our fielding wasnt up to
scratch.
Despite this, Pritchard believes that if his side can
bat with discipline against a
young Wendouree bowling
attack next week, then victory is attainable.
If we bat our 80 overs,
were going to give ourselves
a chance, Pritchard said.

Thats going to be the


theme for the week weve
got to bat to time and take
the game deep and if we do
that, were a chance to win
the game.
Weve made some big
scores this year weve
made a 270 and a 260 so
weve proven we can do it,
but its going to be a long day
and someone has to make a
hundred for us to win.
Of the four Wendouree
wickets to fall, two of them
were run-outs, with club
champions Matthew Cape
taking the remaining two
wickets to return figures of
2/64 off 19 overs.
The Lions Second XI won
the toss and sent Burrumbeet in to bat before dismissing them for 208 inside
62 overs. Darleys bowlers
shared the wickets around,
with Jamie McKerrow, Mitch
Ward and Beau Jamieson all
taking two wickets each.
This meant that Darley had
15 overs to bat at the end of
the day, and it didnt serve
them well, losing four wickets to be teetering at 4/31
at the end of the days play,
with all four wickets coming
from one end as Burrumbeet
quick Aaron Wilson claimed
all four scalps. Darley captain Marcus Ingvorsen re-

though, and the Lions will
be looking for a captains
knock from their skipper
next week to keep them in
the game.
Darleys Third XI dismissed Coronet City for
232 in the 61st over of their
two-day clash, with Craig
McDonald taking 3/36 off
17 overs in his first Third
XI game for the year, ably
supported by 14 & Under
player Noah Simmons who
returned the remarkable
figures of 4/9 from just 4.4
overs, before facing 16 overs
at the end of the day to record 3/60, with McDonald
accounting for 36 of those
runs before being dismissed
late in the day.
Darleys Fourth XI also had
a tough day in their one-day
clash with Mount Clear,
with the Mounties amassing
5/296 off their 40 overs. Tim
Gallagher took two wickets with one each to Steven
Cornford and Regan King
before starting their run
chase with some promise,
thanks to a 112-run opening
partnership between Gallagher (74) and Darren Hynes
(57) before the latter was dismissed, however the Lions
ultimately fell short, scoring
8/233 off their 40 overs.

Results Round 10
1st XI v Romsey
Winning the toss and batting the Bulls openers took the
shine off the ball with some solid batting with the first
wicket falling at 41. With the second wicket falling at 67 and
consecutive wickets at 71 the Bulls were in desperate need
for a partnership 4 wickets down. Dennis OLoughlin (97

Another 2 quick wickets saw James Bailey came to the

fielding kept the scoring difficult. I. Spiteri grabbed two
quick wickets and broke through some solid batting 2/24 off
9 overs with J. Bailey also bowling tight with 9 overs 0/17.
The Bulls star with the bat Dennis OLoughlin proved just
as handy with the ball bowling magnificently finishing
with the impressive figures of 19.2 overs 5/61 to see Romsey
bowled out for 179.An all-roung perfomance with the ball

Avenue Bowling Club

Results Round 12

Division 1 v Central Wendouree


Things did not go to plan for Avenue only coming away
with the one point, a draw by Steve Sullivans rink.
The other 3 rinks each lost by less than 10 shots, from which
one could gather that Avenue were in the game in each of
these rinks, but were unable to close the games out.
Final score Avenue 74 lost Central Wendouree 101.
Division 2 v City Oval
All Avenue rinks got off to a slow start, with Peter Glass
rink dropping 7 shots on the first end, however to their credit
they held their own after that, ultimately going down by that
margin. New Skip Peter Kays rink did well coming back
from 4-14 down to only lose by 8 shots.
Final score Avenue 65 lost City Oval 121.
Division 5 v BMS
Good wins to Di Hardiments rink (2 shots up) and Stewart
Wilsons rink (4 shots up) were not enough to cover the other
2 rinks. The loss puts added pressure on the side to keep in
touch with the top 4, but with 6 rounds to go anything can
happen.
Final score Avenue 82 lost BMS 103.
Division 7 v Sebastopol
Malcolm Smiths rink took the rink of the week honours
with a 9 shot win, a feat matched by Don Lemins rink. A
7-shot win by veteran Stan Cummings rink provided enough
shots up to cover the 4th rinks loss. A handy 16 points to the
club which should entrench itself in the top 4 with this win.
Final score Avenue 97 def Sebastopol 79
