Bulldogs bite back at Magpies

MDFL – They may have knocked SM&W Rovers out of the Mininera and District Football Association finals race last year, but the Wickliffe Lake Bolac Magpies were clearly outclassed when the sides met again on Saturday.

SM&W Rovers got their revenge on a disappointing semi final loss with a 98-point victory at Lake Bolac, 26.8 (164) to 9.12 (66).

Bulldogs coach Rhys Cahir was pleased with the win, although he feels his team will continue improve.

“We’re still doing plenty of things wrong. We took a while to get going, but there are positive signs that we’re heading in the right direction,” he said.

Cahir was unsure how the match would unfold, although he knew key losses to the Wickliffe Lake Bolac line up would have an impact.

“They’ve had a lot of changes. They’ve lost a lot of their tall blokes and it was like playing a completely different side,” he said.

The encounter was close early, which Cahir put down to the dominance of Magpies playing coach, Brad Keilar, who was able to give his midfielders first use of the ball.

The Magpies held a two-point lead at the first change, but the Bulldogs went about the match with a renewed sense of vigour after quarter time, piling on eight goals to one.

“Once we settled down and changed around a few match ups we hit our straps,” Cahir said.

The Bulldogs kicked an additional 15 majors in the second half to Wickliffe Lake Bolac’s five to enjoy a comfortable win.

Cahir praised the efforts of recruit Darren Fletcher, who finished the match with seven goals and also managed to bring a number of players into the game.

“David Box was terrific in the middle, his work rate was outstanding and he ended up with five goals,” Cahir said.

Cahir was also pleased with Brady Curran (one goal), who is going from strength to strength playing a stoppage role.

He said defender John Forbes was starting to find form, while Andrew Toan and Hayden McCrow were also named in the best for the victors.

Charles Archer, Shane Clark and Tom Gibson had the biggest impact for the Magpies.

Caramut gave Moyston Willaura a run for its money early, but the Pumas proved too strong in the second half, claiming a 55-point win, 16.20 (116) to 9.7 (61).

The Swans held a narrow one-point lead at quarter time, before the Pumas fought back to claim an 11-point buffer by half time.

Moyston Willaura’s class shone through in the latter half of the match, with Lynden Brewis and John Vanderwaal (one) leading by example as the Pumas piled on 11 goals to Caramut’s four.

Josh Bywater was again impressive in the ruck, while Leo Bell, Ararat Rats’ recruit Nathan Stapleton and Blake Dunstan also stood out.

Calum Stevens was the best of Moyston Willaura’s seven goal kickers, contributing four majors for the match, while Lachlan Barr (two) was the only multiple goal scorer for the Swans.

James Tarbolton, Todd O’Sullivan (one) and Nicholas Walker were judged best afield for Caramut.

r r r

Tatyoon’s key forwards were in fine form as the Hawks claimed an 89-point win over Lismore Derrinallum at Derrinallum on Saturday.

Aidan Bell and Ross Panther finished with eight and seven goals respectively in the victory, with seven other players contributing to the team’s 26-goal haul.

Tatyoon lead at each change and although the Demons continued to put up a fight, they were clearly outgunned.

Elliot Pyke booted three goals for the Demons, with Dean McPhan, Jahn Knight and Darcy O’Sullivan named among Lismore Derrniallum’s best players.

Bell was named best afield for the Hawks.

Tireless midfielder Damian Cameron (three) and defender Tim Barr were also lauded for their efforts.

Pat Tucker (one), Andy Maconachie (one) and Panther completed Tatyoon’s top six players.

r r r

The new-look Ararat Eagles have chalked up two wins on the trot after disposing of Woorndoo Mortlake at Woorndoo.

The Eagles are now holding third spot on the MDFL ladder thanks to the convincing 140-point win, 26.19 (175) to 4.11 (35).

It’s been a long time since the Eagles have kicked nine goals in an opening quarter and the victory should give the team a confidence boost ahead of this weekend’s clash with Great Western.

Justin Coole kicked six majors to be named best on ground for the Eagles, while James Dalkin and Scott Jackson successfully halted a number of the Tigers attempts towards goal.

Key recruit Nathan Wemyss continued to impress, while regular contributors BJ Burton and Richard O’Connell also made their presence felt.

r r r

Great Western endured another tough day at the office as it attempts to settle in to the MDFL, suffering a painful 175-point loss at the hands of Penshurst, 5.4 (34) to 31.23 (209).

A punishing nine goal to one opening quarter set the scene for the rest of the afternoon, with the Lions being outplayed around the ground.

Key signing Ben O’Neill was once again a stand out in the midfield, while young ruckman Kyle Salmon also continued his good form.

Nick McCartney showed promise, kicking one of Great Western’s four goals, while defenders Tim Shalders and Ben Newson also worked hard, with Newson restricting Penshurst power forward Robert Brewster to just five majors.

Taylor McKenry, Brandon Ross and Andrew Behncke, were named the top three players for the Bombers.

Penshurst’s Kane Ubergang was reported during the match.

In the final match of the round, Glenthompson Dunkeld overcame Hawkesdale Macarthur by 39 points at Hawkesdale, 13.10 (88) to 6.13 (49).

Optus takes out Wednesday night men’s tennis competition

ARARAT – Optus has taken out the 2011/12 Ararat City Tennis Club’s Wednesday night men’s competition.
Nanjing Night Net

The side sat eight points clear in first position on the competition ladder and couldn’t be toppled heading into the final round, which may explain why the team’s loss to Rural Steel was surprising.

Morgan Gason and Neil Blizzard were a lively duo for Rural Steel, with a combination of hard hitting and flawless ground strokes.

For Optus Alex Drosg was at his best, while Keenan Hurst finished off the season in brilliant touch.

Finishing in second position overall was Fosters Mensland which enjoyed a big win over AME, 5-45 to 1-20.

Andy Tucker and Wayne Jerram won all their games for Fosters, while Ash Cooper and James Drew got AME on the board in the final set of the night.

Embroidability finished the season on 30 points to nab third position on the ladder.

The team also enjoyed a hard fought win over Graeme McKay Earthworks in the final round to end the summer season on a high note.

A very good opening set took place between Embroidability’s Norm Woodhams and Rick Thomas and GME’s Brad Harricks and Darren Beer.

Woodhams was volleying well, while Beer’s new racquet was producing plenty of spin. In the end nothing could separate the pairs, with the score locked at six games all.

Embroidability sealed the victory with a big 7-3 win in the fifth set.

The Ararat City Tennis Club’s Wednesday night men’s winter competition begins on May 2 and will feature eight teams.

Triples tournament success

GBD – Stawell Bowling Club has played its nominated day three-bowl triples tournament for the year and with twenty teams participating, marvelous facilities, generous catering and perfect Autumn weather, it was a day not to be missed.
Nanjing Night Net

Since the Cato Lake flooded the Stawell greens on two occasions last year, the club has made a fine effort to restore the greens and surrounds to even better than they were before the disaster.

In game one of three, Noeline Fratin (Ararat VRI), Graham Carr (Stawell) and Bill Creenaune (Aradale) appreciated the condition of the greens and were prominent when needed, while game two saw some fine performances from the strong Stawell Golf/Bowls contingent, Norm Duxon, Bob Power, Alan Smith and in particular Iain MacLean who were unbeatable. Maclean has an enthusiastic and competitive approach to the game, and he gets the good results accordingly.

Journalist George Negus and co host Yumi Stynes may have singled out man mountain Victoria Cross holder Corporal Ben Roberts-Smith, but even they would have been suitably impressed and speechless when as the temperature rose, former Darwin air force squadron leader Mikey Burrett (Stawell/Golf Bowls) stripped off his bowls shirt to reveal a rippling six pack, which matched his exquisite bowling.

Not to be outdone though, Landsborough Bowls Club was well represented, with president Bernie O’Callaghan shrugging off his ‘Mr Nice Guy’ image, while John Vance as usual was very consistent.

The story of Napoleon and Josephine is one of the greatest love stories in history. They remained deeply in love with each other throughout their married life, and as they say, love if pure, binds no folds. Bonnie and Clyde and Louis XV and Madame de Pompadour, they are all great love stories, on paper at least.

However, when you actually learn the whole story for all of these romances, they are a lot less sweet. In the balmy autumn conditions so it was for the Stawell Bowling Club stalwarts Cliff and Carmel Loats. Cliff is most charming and generous, while Carmel is vivacious, mysterious and vibrant. As a married couple, the two are a perfect match but their union was tested severely when they met as opponents in game three of the tournament.

It was hard to assess what happened, suffice to say the red kelpie would have had Cliff’s company in the kennel at night for the rest of the week.

The day was ending as the sun dipped below the horizon, and the appetizing teatime smell of dim sims wafted across the green from the adjacent fish shop. President Andrew Sharp tallied up the scores to reveal that the Ararat Bowls Club team of ‘Mr Consistency’ Mick Dowd, Lew Day and Peter Kaczynski with two and a half wins were runners up, but clear winners on the day with three quality wins were Rob Maconachie, Don Austerberry and ‘Al Pal’ Driscoll representing the Landsborough Bowls Club.

Quarterly report on council

The first quarterly report on the operations of council has been presented.ARARAT – Monitor for the Ararat Rural City Council, Paul Evans has presented his first quarterly report on the operations of council to the Minisier for Local Government, Jeanette Powell.
Nanjing Night Net

Mrs Powell appointed Mr Evans, a former Assistant Commissioner of Victoria Police, to the role of Monitor, in January thios year, following an investigation into the Ararat Rural City Council.

Mr Evans’ quarterly report to the Minister reads:

I commenced duty as Monitor for Ararat Rural City Council on 9 January 2012. During the first three months I have been on site at Ararat for 30 days and attended ten assemblies of councillors and two ordinary council meetings. I have also met with local business men and woman, attended community events and attended a special committee meeting at Pomonal.

I have been able to assist council with the ongoing review and development of policy documents as well as providing advice and support to councillors, the CEO and council officers in regard to procedural and governance issues. For example the Mayor at the beginning of each assembly meeting now reminds all councillors of their obligations in relation to disclosure of conflict of interest.

This quarterly report summarises the main issues identified at the Ararat Rural City Council. These are:

Special Committees as described in Section 86 of the Local Government Act are established to support council in the management and preservation of community asset such as community halls, reserves and community spaces. These committees are managed by members of the local community. There are currently 20 special committees (recently reduced from 33) operating across the Ararat local government area. Unfortunately over time there has been little or no compliance by these committees or by council in relation to these committees as required by the Act. The CEO is currently reviewing these committees to ensure and assist with compliance. Council officers are also developing an Operating Manual for these committees to assist with their governance and legal obligations. Council officers, over the next 12 to 18 months, will visit all special committees and provide advice and support. This is a very positive initiative. I will continue to monitor the progress of this work.

A number of council policy documents have now been updated. I have had input into the processes by ensuring requirements by the Local Government Act have been included where relevant. The CEO is progressively reviewing all local policy documents. I will continue to provide advice and monitor progression of this review.

Some members of council still do not fully understand the intent of the ‘Conflict of Interest’ provisions under the Local Government Act. They have either declared a conflict when there is not or not declared a conflict when one may have been evident. I have had discussion with the councillors concerned with this issue. Part of the education regarding this issue has been greater discussion at assemblies and ordinary council meetings, advice and discussion with the CEO and other councillors and guidance from MAV and LGV. I will continue to monitor this matter.

Although on most occasions council has operated as a cohesive group, I have noticed a solid divide with matters that relate to the previous Mayor. It will be difficult for councillors to rectify this situation until the legal matters against the past Mayor have been finalised.

The community level of support of the current councillors appears to be positive. There has however been open criticism about the actions of the past Mayor, which was widely covered in the local media at the time. The community appears to be satisfied that the council is now getting on with its job.

The confidence of some councillors has suffered as a result of the negative publicity and Inspectorate investigation during 2011. Now that these investigations have largely been completed, councillors appear to be more positive and display greater confidence in performing their roles.

The CEO is progressive in providing good and proper governance and administration to the Ararat Rural City Council. Issues that have been identified are being addressed or currently reviewed by the CEO. I will continue to participate and monitor the progression of this review process.

All councillors, council officers and CEO have been very supportive of my role. I have been able to develop positive relationships and provide advice and support regarding issues of good governance and administration. I feel my presence has a positive impact in enhancing the governance of the Ararat Rural City Council.

Tehan speaks at ARBA meeting

L-R ARBA members Faith Warren, Robert Bates, member for Wannon Dan Tehan and Andrew Burger at the ARBA meeting.ARARAT – Federal member for Wannon, Dan Tehan was the special guest speaker at the latest quarterly meeting of the Ararat Regional Business Association (ARBA).
Nanjing Night Net

The meeting, which was open to all ARBA members, was attended by about 40 people and was chaired by acting-president Andrew Burger.

Mr Tehan discussed various topics from foreign owners of agricultural land to the Labor Party’s controversial carbon tax and the affect it would have on local businesses including Gason and AME.

ARBA publicly officer, Phil Clark said Mr Tehan also answered a range of questions from those at the meeting.

“He was an entertaining speaker and really down-to-earth guy,” he said.

“He is fairly local having grown up in the western part of Victoria, down Hamilton way and he is a genuine country guy which people can relate to.

“Dan has been quite supportive of ARBA and he also talked about the prison development and what a positive it would be for the town.”

At the meeting it was announced that some ARBA members would attend the Regional Victoria Living Expo at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from April 27-29 as part of the Ararat Rural City Council’s presentation.

“We have two members who will be there on each day and they will be showcasing all that is good about living in the country,” Mr Clark said.

Moving on from baskets to ceramics

Guest speaker Patrick Snelling with exhibiting artist Lucy Irvine and her daughter Maisie at the opening of her exhibition, `Mapless’.ARARAT – Ararat Basketfest 2012 culminated in a symposium at the Ararat Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, March 31, featuring a line up of Australia’s foremost fibre artists and curators.
Nanjing Night Net

The symposium provided a chance for people with an interest in contemporary fibre art and basketry to experience a day of lively discussion and networking amongst peers.

It was great to welcome so many passionate basketmakers and key influences in Australian craft to Ararat.

The centrepiece of the program was the 30th anniversary presentation of Douglas Fuchs’ influential fibre art installation ‘Floating Forest’, presented in partnership with the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney. It was therefore appropriate that the symposium began with a consideration of Douglas Fuchs’ influence on Australian basketry by Christina Sumner, Principal Curator, Design and Society at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney.

Arguably Australia’s leading contemporary basketmaker, Virginia Kaiser, was scheduled to speak at the symposium but was unable to attend due to ill health. Virginia was deeply influenced by Douglas Fuchs and her paper was read by her good friend and peer, Wendy Golden. Virginia’s ‘Memories of Douglas’ provided an evocative account of Douglas’ visit and of the burgeoning fibre art community of the early 1980s.

The symposium also more broadly explored contemporary fibre art in Australia including the increasingly vital area of Aboriginal basketry. Antoinette Smith, Senior Curator, Indigenous Cultures of Southeastern Australia at Museum Victoria spoke about historic and recent Aboriginal basketry with reference to her museum’s collections. In the afternoon, five outstanding artists, Marilyne Nicholls, Maree Brown, Adrienne Kneebone, Bronwyn Razem and Lucy Irvine, spoke about the role of tradition and technique in the creation of contemporary woven forms and shared images of recent work.

Well-known craft writer and academic Dr Kevin Murray has written about the symposium and about fibre art in Australia more broadly on the webpage www.craftunbound南京夜网

The symposium was followed by the official opening of Lucy Irvine’s exhibition, ‘Mapless’ by Patrick Snelling, Artist and Program Director, Textile Design, School of Fashion and Textiles, RMIT University. Patrick is also the curator of the 1st Tamworth Textile Triennial which features Lucy’s incredible sculpture, ‘Continuous Interruptions’, which is featured in the triennial’s touring exhibition and has recently been acquired by Tamworth Regional Art Gallery. Lucy’s exhibition Mapless continues at Ararat Regional Art Gallery until May 7, 2012.

We have now moved from basketry to ceramics with a new exhibition by Ararat-born ceramic artist, David Ray.

David is a prominent artist working in ceramics and is represented in major collections, such as the National Gallery of Victoria. His work tackles pertinent social issues through the prism of the visual language of the 18th century.

We were honoured to welcome one of Australia’s most respected ceramic artists, Stephen Benwell, to Ararat to officially open David’s exhibition. In his opening remarks Stephen mentioned that Ararat Regional Art Gallery was the first public gallery to acquire his work.

His 1976 piece called ‘Jewellery Box’ is presently on display in a cabinet alongside other 1970s ceramic works from the permanent collection, augmenting David’s show and providing a context for appreciating the recent history of ceramic sculpture in Australia. David’s exhibition continues until May 13, 2012.

Concern on pool

Although thrilled with this result following months of campaigning to retain the pool, the Ararat Pool Committee became concerned following a preliminary meeting with council officers.ARARAT – The Ararat Pool Committee has approached Ararat Rural City Council seeking clarification on council’s decision to move forward with the redevelopment of the Ararat Solar Olympic Pool.
Nanjing Night Net

At it’s March 20 meeting, councillors unanimously passed a five-part motion reaffirming council’s commitment to the Ararat Olympic Pool, subject to five resolutions, including that:

The Ararat Olympic Pool Committee be invited as soon as possible to meet with councillors and officers to plan for the upgrade and financial options for the pool.

That the contributions from contractors, businesses and the community be documented at that meeting, as described by Ambrose Cashin (a pool supporter who campaigned for the retention of the pool and presented council with his own set of costings).

Ararat Rural City Council takes up the very generous offer from the Ararat Community Enterprise committee toward the cost of the pool upgrade refurbishment.

That the Ararat community be requested to raise $100,000 towards the pool upgrade and refurbishment.

A progress report be presented to the May 2012 council meeting, and include recommendations for funding to be included in the 2012/2013 budget.

Although thrilled with this result following months of campaigning to retain the pool, the committee became concerned following a preliminary meeting with council officers to discuss plans and financial options for the upgrade.

Committee member Ambrose Cashin said the concern surrounded whether council planned to support a proposal to fully redevelop the pool and its surroundings, or whether it would adopt a band aid solution.

“We believe the pool has got to be acceptable and viable for the whole community as a multi-use faciity,” Mr Cashin said.

“If we’re going to be spending people’s money, we need to be accountable.”

Mr Cashin said the committee was against a band aid solution, as the problems facing the pool now would resurface in a few years time.

“If we can’t afford to do it right, we can’t afford to do it at all,” he said.

The committee submitted its request for clarification to council ahead of question time for last Tuesday night’s meeting.

The request was read to the meeting by Ararat Rural City chief executive officer, Andrew Evans:

“The Ararat Pool Committee
