Straight-forward questions

I read with interest and some incredulity that the ABC’s 7.30 Victoria had selectively edited and distorted the Macedon Ranges Shire Council’s decision to develop the ‘East Paddock’ (‘Incorrect view’, November 5, 2013, Peter Johnston, CEO, Macedon Ranges Shire Council).
Nanjing Night Net

Peter Johnston is correct in saying the story was selectively edited. Every story broadcast on television is selectively edited. However, if the story distorted council’s decision making, then Peter Johnston needs to take responsibility for that by either his failure, or inability, to provide straight-forward answers to straight-forward questions about the finances of the Hanging Rock Reserve.

In light of the fact the Hanging Rock Reserve has generated a budget surplus in nine of the past 10 years, I am more than happy for Midland Express readers to make up their own minds about whether 7.30 Victoria’s story on Hanging Rock was distorted.

TRANSCRIPT EXTRACT

GS: Isn’t Hanging Rock currently operating at a profit?

PJ: No Hanging Rock’s not operating at a profit at the moment.

GS: What is the precise financial situation of Hanging Rock, there appeared to be an operating profit of about $150k?

PJ: That varies from year to year … sometimes it makes a profit, sometimes it makes a loss.

GS: So it has just made a profit but some years it makes a loss?

PJ: I’m saying some years it makes a profit, some years it makes a loss.

GS: You say the rock has had profits and losses over the last 10 years, can you give me a net figure up or down over the last 10 years?

PJ: They’ve fluctuated, usually fluctuated up to the extent of $100k a year profit or loss

GS: (Interrupting) But is it down over the 10 years?

PJ: There’s a small amount in the reserve at the moment but that’s because we’ve been looking at the best way to invest that for the infrastructure upgrades that are required now and into the future.

GS: I’m just curious that initially you said it was operating at a loss and that was the reason why there needed to be development.

PJ: No, I didn’t say it was operating at a loss, I said it operated at a profit or loss, year to year.

RAAF wing givenfreedom of the city

REDLAND Mayor Karen Williams with Group Captain Peter Davis, officer Commanding 395 Expeditionary Combat Support Wing at Wednesday’s meeting. PHOTO: Judith KerrREDLAND City council has put out the welcome mat to a special combat wing of the Royal Australian Air Force, which will be granted freedom to enter the city at a $20,000 ceremony in April.
Nanjing Night Net

The ceremony will include a parade down Bloomfield Street and presentation of a scroll to the officer commanding the 395 Expeditionary Combat Support Wing.

Group Captain Peter Davis said that freedom of the city was a dual opportunity for his Support Wing and Redland.

Division 6 councillor Julie Talty, in support, said freedom of the city was an honour for both parties.

Captain Davis said it was a sign of respect for the military and an act of friendship from cities, which stood to benefit in times of disaster.

He said his members were the first on the ground in Ipswich during floods in 2012 and were able to help with sandbags and disaster relief.

Freedom of the city is a military tradition dating back to the Middle Ages when there were walled cities in Europe. It will be granted to the Wing on April 12, to coincide with the centenary of World War I and as part of the lead up to Anzac Day.

Also at Wednesday’s meeting, council agreed to write to Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie with suggestions on changes to the Right to Information Act 2009 and the Information Privacy 2009.

The RTI Act allows people to access council documents, and officers said the $41.90 fee for access to information was not covering council processing costs.

The 2014 council meeting schedule was also approved at the meeting with the first meeting for the year set for Wednesday, January 29 and the last on December 10, 2014.

Council will continue tohold fortnightly meetings next year except in school holidays. Meetings will start at the new time of 9.30am instead of 10.30am.

A review of 28 Local Laws, including those governing swimming pools, animal management and use of local roads, was deferred to the December meeting.

However, council did approve granting chief executive Bill Lyon greater delegated powers.

Councillors Paul Bishop (div 10) and Paul Gleeson (Div 9) voted against the idea because they were concerned they would not be told of changes made using the powers.

Officer Nick Clarke said delegating was necessary to cut down on red tape and was a legislative requirement, recommended by the Local Government Association of Queensland.

Happy camper

One ‘happy camper on tour’ would like to congratulate and thank everyone concerned with the Elliott Midland Newspapers’ inaugural ‘Buy Local Shopping Tour’.
Nanjing Night Net

The amount of thought, planning and preparation that obviously had to go into the day’s outing was a credit to the organisers concerned. These being Tim, Liz, Steve, Chris (alias Elliott Newshound) and Kevin our Organs bus driver. Many thanks also to Gaylene and Max on the big red double-decker bus which also accompanied us to our destinations.

All of these people deserve a special mention for their undying (all day) enthusiasm. They gave us laughs on and off the bus and looked after us all day. The behind the scenes beforehand preparation they all put in made our day and the business owner’s day a great success.

Thank you to all the businesses involved who made us most welcome. Hopefully the day was as successful for them as it was enjoyable and productive for us.

At the end of a fantastic day’s outing and sipping a complimentary glass of champagne, you realise just how much effort had gone into our bus tour. This inaugural shopping tour around the Macedon Ranges was for myself, my friends and I’m sure everyone else on the bus, definitely a great success.Hopefully this tour can be organised at least once or twice a year from now on. I know we would go again without any hesitation. So please support the next Macedon Ranges Shopping Tour, it’s well worth it and I’m sure no-one would be disappointed. Once again, thank you to everyone concerned with the tour. Well done and look forward to the next one!

Nanjing Night Net

The former Ballarat East player has entered a whirlwind start to his professional career, jugglinglifebetween high school and cricket.

“It’s exciting but very busy. I put cricket on hold for two and a half weeks during VCEexam period, so it’s good to be back,” Short said.

The 18-year-old admitted he will be star-struck playing alongside bowling legend Muttiah Muralitharan when he joins the Renegades.

“I bowl right arm, off-spin as well, so hopefully he can teach me a few tricks,” Short said.

“He is the face of world cricket.”

As a development rookie, Short will be present at all home games andcould fill in for injured players.He will have access to all facilities, coaching and support staff.

“The Renegades will be a great experience and will provide me withthe opportunity to be around a professional environment,” Short said.

Renegades coach Simon Helmot made the announcement today at Ballarat East Oval.

“This is the first year we have opened the development rookie role,” Helmot said.

”He is part of our squad, and could be up for selection if he demands it. He is a legitimate player in the team.

Short will be a part of the Melbourne Renegades squad travelling to Ballarat for a three-day training camp from 13-15 December.

Grassroots: Matt Short with his former Ballarat East coach Bruno Davi.

St Mary’s could not overcome unbeaten Margaret River

GALLERY: Margaret River Hawks overcame a spirited St Mary’s outfit on the weekend torecord their third win from as many attempts this season.
Nanjing Night Net

St Mary’s got off to a great start after winning the toss and electing to bat,with openers Danny Hatton and Luke Wedderburn starting out on form.

After Wedderburn was dismissed in the sixth over, Hatton and Ben Lloyd combinedto put on 113 for the second wicket partnership.

Both batsmen looked commanding until Lloyd popped up a simple catch to bedismissed, making 45 to continue his strong run of form with the bat.

Jonathon Lloyd then batted well with Hatton until a mix up running betweenwickets sent Danny back to the shed on 86.

Lloyd (45 not out) then combined with the middle order to get St Mary’s to adecent total of 5/229 from their 50 overs.

With a more than respectable total on the board, St Mary’s bowlers were lookingfor an early breakthrough to be right on top.

This came through the bowling of English speedster Ryan Stevenson, whodismissed opening batsmen Glenn Ahola for a duck, bringing Margaret Rivercaptain Marty Head to the crease.

After a number of confident appeals by the bowling side early were thrown outby the umpire, Head took control, smashing an unbeaten 152 not out whilstflaying the bowling attack to all parts.

Head showed his class with one of the best knocks of his career, ably supportedby Creed Griffiths (58 not out), who continued to show why he is one of thebest young batsmen in the association.

The target of 230 was attained in the 47th over, for the loss ofonly two wickets.

The two sides will meet again this Sunday in Margaret River, with St Mary’s outfor revenge and Hawks looking to continue their unbeaten start to the season.

Nanjing Night Net

Busselton residentsgathered today for a minute silence to remember those who put their lives atrisk for their country.

This year marks the95th anniversary of the armistice which ended the First World War.

President of the RSLBusselton Club Bob Woods said 32 soldiers from Busselton were killed in thewar.

Mr Woods went on toremember the Yelverton family from the Busselton district which saw three sonsgo to war, with one who didn’t return.
