Zacharie Matthew Williams (18) of Chums Lane, Young was found guilty of driving with a midrange concentration of alcohol, for an offence committed on November 3, 2012 in Young.

Williams, who is a carpet layer and a keen sportsman, had been at a party in Elizabeth Street, Young where he shared a carton of beer between three people.

After fights broke out at the party, he and a friend left but were unable to find a taxi.

Williams then made the decision to drive at his friend’s suggestion, as he had consumed less alcohol than the friend. Police pulled them over shortly afterwards.

“Your licence is not a right but a privilege,” Magistrate Dare told Williams. “I just wish the youth in the nearby country towns would realise this.”

He was convicted, fined $250 plus $83 court costs and had his license disqualified for six months from the date the offence was committed.

***

Brian Nathan Munn (33) of Berthong Street, Young was found guilty of dishonestly obtaining financial advantage by deception, for an offence committed on October, 26 2012.

Munn used his now ex-partner’s debit card to purchase $178.95 worth of Xbox items over a live service without her permission.

He was not convicted on the condition he enter a 12-month good behaviour bond. He was not ordered to pay back the money but said he would do so anyway.

***

Jacob Robert Paterson (18) of Back Creek Road, Young was found guilty of maliciously damaging property, for an offence committed on the evening of September, 21, 2012 in Young.

According to police facts tendered in court, Paterson smashed the windscreen of a Holden Commodore Sedan after drinking with friends at the Young Services Club on the weekend he had turned 18.

“I just did something stupid that I shouldn’t have done,” Paterson told the court.

He was convicted and fined $250, plus court costs.

According to police facts tendered in court, the owner of the vehicle sought compensation but Paterson was not ordered to pay it.

Wedding guest placed on community corrections order  ( admin posted on July 13th, 2018 )

COURT: Jenelle Lee Taylor wiped away tears as she relived the event which took place at a Swan Hill resort on February 25. A WEDDING attendee who had to be evicted from the reception following an altercation with another guest has appeared before the Swan Hill Magistrates’ Court.
苏州美睫培训

Jenelle Lee Taylor wiped away tears as she relived the event which took place at a Swan Hill resort on February 25.

Police prosecutor Leading Senior Constable John Lyons said Taylor had been a guest at the wedding when she became involved in an argument with other patrons around 11.30pm.

During the incident she pushed 10 cups and saucers from a coffee trolley, causing them to break.

She also pushed a restaurant staff member in the back causing them to stumble.

Another guest had to take the accused outside where he sat her down at the front entrance of the venue in an attempt to calm her down.

However, LSC Lyons said outside, her aggressive behaviour continued and at one stage she “bit hard into the male patron’s upper chest”.

After this incident, Taylor was taken to the ground and restrained until police arrived.

Once they arrived, Taylor continued to be verbally aggressive and argumentative.

She used her fingernails to dig into a police officer who later required first aid.

Once in the back of the police van, an intoxicated Taylor continued screaming and swearing loudly.

She remained verbally aggressive once in custody, hitting and kicking the cell before vomiting in the cell and over herself.

Marcus Williams, for the defence, said the behaviour was out of character for the 41-year-old, noting her judgement was significantly impaired on the night in question.

“She is most deeply embarrassed by the court appearance,” Williams said.

Hearing the details, Magistrate William Gibb said on a scale of one to 10, Taylor’s behaviour was somewhere between an eight and 10.

“Clearly police shouldn’t have to deal with this behaviour,” he said.

“You’re a 41-year-old woman, not a 16 or 17 year-old. Your behaviour can only be described as shameful and disgraceful.”

The matter was adjourned overnight so that Taylor could be assessed for a community corrections order.

Reappearing in court on Thursday, Taylor was placed on a 12 month community corrections order which included 50 hours of unpaid community service.

Brimming with culture ( admin posted on September 21st, 2019 )

Gareth Colliton is ready for the Arts on the Grass event on the Civic Green this summer. Picture: ROB GUNSTONETHE Warrnambool Art Gallery is full of exciting exhibitions this summer and will be a cool retreat to explore when the days get hot.
苏州美睫培训

Invasion, the blockbuster exhibition that invaded Warrnambool in December will be running until January 28.

The remarkable exhibition brings together an army of famous aliens and monsters from sci-fi blockbusters.

Original props and costumes from Star Wars, Alien, Predator, Star Trek, Doctor Who, Mars Attack, X-Files, Planet of the Apes, Andromeda, Stargate Atlantas and Red Dwarf are on display .

Curator of exhibitions and outreach Gareth Colliton has been impressed with crowds attending the Invasion exhibition already.

“It’s going awesome, so far so good,” he said.

“By supporting this exhibition we are encouraging this type of culture in Warrnambool which means these types of exhibitions can keep returning.”

At the gallery on January 12 there will be a public session with Deakin University academic Sean Redmond.

“He will be presenting an old sci-fi movie and then he will hold a discussion on the theme of invasion,” Mr Colliton said.

In the temporary gallery Tower Hill is on display until February 3.

Artists have found inspiration in Tower Hill for generations and the exhibition is inclusive of Von Geurard’s famous view of 1855 and photographs taken in the 1960s and 70s showing a more modern representation of the state game reserves regeneration.

Artefacts add an extra dimension to telling the story of the area and cover the pre-history.

In the Lighthouse Theatre Atrium is an exhibition by regional artist Brett Jarrett.

Portraits from the Sea features marine life that is evident on the south-west coast and includes finely detailed realist works of albatrosses, penguins and more.

The exhibition runs until February 11.

Arts on the Grass is also continuing with a great range of artists and musicians lining up to treat lunchgoers’ eyes and ears on Fridays.

“We have had roughly 150 people attending the Arts on the Grass,” Mr Colliton said.

January 11 will see Tom Pendergast versus Shaun McIntyre with music by Heidi Gass and Sean Murphy, on January 18 Becky Nevin Berger will be competing against Robyn Lake and Michelle’s Velocity will play live and on January 25 the two artists battling are Tracey Head versus Kelly O’Brien with tunes by Darren and Louise.

Times change but we must rememebr to care about others ( admin posted on September 21st, 2019 )

OUR 2012 was a year of underlying change, whose effects will probably will not be felt until beyond 2013.
苏州美睫培训

The catalyst for change has been driven by the increasingly fast pace of technology and continuing moves by governments to cut expenditure and shift responsibility for services from the government sector to the community and business areas.

Social media’s growth in 2012 has fractured intercommunication as well as expanding it. While more and more people can connect with each other, quicker with seemingly no geographical boundaries, this spread of digital friends and connection with random people has lessened the face-to-face connections we have with our friends and neighbours.

There is no reason why 2013 will be any less hectic in the expansion of digital communication. If anyone doubts the long-term changes in social behaviour emanating form these trends, should observe closely this Christmas the infants and toddlers in your families and discover why they are known as digital natives.

The other catalyst comes from changes in government administration, both local and state in 2012, and likely for Australia federally in 2013. The trend of all governments is to cut costs and therefore services in order to make their financial balance sheet as buoyant as possible. The decades of built-in waste and red tape in government is coming to an end. The long term results of this change in mindset are not known as yet.

Who will be the beneficiary of a stronger govrnment financial position? The real effects of the big 2012 cuts will emerge in late 2013, by which time similar federal government cuts will consolidate the structural change.

Our wish for 2013 should be an awareness by governments, business and here in the Redlands that there are those in the community who need the support of others in order to have a decent life.

We must not lose sight of that and this Christmas is a perfect time to reflect on how we treat others.

Have a happy Christmas and we look forward to being part of your life in 2013.

Respite retreat gives kids their own space ( admin posted on September 21st, 2019 )

Ebony Davey, 8, of Wynnum and Laura Shaw, 12, of Manly, try out the bright and colourful sensory area at The Cubby House, a new children’s-only respite retreat in Birkdale. Photo by Chris McCormackTUCKED away on a shaded property in Birkdale is a new children’s-only respite retreat, called The Cubby House, that was officially opened last week.
苏州美睫培训

Filled with all the things most kids would love, including a floating trampoline on a picturesque lake, a giant slingshot for flying out into the water, an arts and crafts shed, a banana forest, bedrooms that really do resemble cubby houses, an outdoor projector for movies under the stars, and much more, the retreat caters to families of children with disabilities.

Owner and director Alex Shaw, of Manly, said The Cubby House was a sister to the Wynnum respite house for people with cognitive impairment, Tea-cup Cottage, which she has owned for about two years with her husband David, a quadriplegic.

She said the self- funded, not-for-profit facility at Birkdale could accommodate up to five children at a time, depending on their needs, with most children staying two to three days at a time.

“There’s a need for this kind of place,” Alex said.

“We had children coming to Tea-cup Cottage, but we couldn’t have adults and children in the same place at the same time, so we realised something had to be done for the children that they needed their own place.”

Alex said while The Cubby House was set in “a beautiful space”, the retreat wasn’t just “a safe place in a pretty environment”.

“We look at everything here and take a holistic approach, including dietary management,” she said.

“It’s about giving children the right to just be themselves and not feel that they don’t have a place in society.

“We offer them dignity and respect and it’s also about allowing families to have some time out, while knowing their children are safe and well cared for.”

Alex said The Cubby House staff included social workers, psychologists and carers, with all staff holding a minimum of a Certificate III in Disabilities, and having undergone relevant police background checks.

Member for Bowman Andrew Laming, who opened the retreat, called the facility “one of a kind”.

“It’s a world class respite centre for kids, and it offers a chance for the children to heal in a place of complete positivity,” he said.

The Cubby House was the second stage of three respite retreats, with a third The Lemon Tree having opened at Wakerley on Monday.

Rates and a pay rise on council’s agenda ( admin posted on August 21st, 2019 )

ROADS, ramps, rodeos, remuneration, rates schedules and fortnightly general council meetings are expected to be on the agenda at Redland City Council’s final meeting for 2012.
苏州美睫培训

The council is expected to adopt the Local Government Remuneration and Discipline Tribunal pay schedule’s 2.5 per cent pay rise for the mayor, deputy mayor and councillors.

Under the schedule, Redland City Council will remain a category six council next year.

Mayor Karen Williams’s pay will go from $150,864 to $154,636, and is calculated at 110 per cent of $140,578, the base salary of a state Member of the Legislative Assembly.

Deputy mayor Alan Beard’s pay will rise from $102,862 to $105,434, which is 75 per cent of the base salary of an MLA and the nine councillors’ pay packets will go from $89,147 to $91,376.

All will get a 12 per cent employer superannuation contribution.

The council will vote on overhauling its committee structure, introducing fortnightly general meetings and appointing five councillors to a Cleveland CBD Revitalisation Special Committee, starting on February 1.

It is also expected to adopt its rates notice schedule with the first round of quarterly rates bills to be issued on July 2, 2013 and due on August 13.

The council is also expected to introduce a direct debit payment option for rates, which is set to start on January 1.

Councillor Mark Edwards (Div 5) will ask the council to consider setting up a camp site at Sandy Beach, Russell Island and councillor Lance Hewlett (Div 4) will ask the council to negotiate control of Colburn Avenue from the state government.

It will also vote on proposals for a footpath and cycleway on Point O’Halloran Road, Victoria Point, along with plans to cancel steps on the foreshore outside 38 Orana Esplanade, Victoria Point, while keeping steps at 24 Orana Esplanade.

The council is also expected to ratify its Open Space strategy, a 500-page document outlining a 14-year plan for the city’s parks.

If adopted, officers claim the strategy will save ratepayers having to buy $97million of land for new parks.

A raft of amendments to the Redlands Planning Scheme are also expected to be adopted.

Storms dampen weekend sports ( admin posted on August 21st, 2019 )

THUNDERSTORMS early on Saturday morning proved to be the undoing of Northern District cricket at the majority of venues, leaving matches called off at various points prior to the scheduled start times.
苏州美睫培训

The Northern District Lawn Tennis Association’s round was free to go ahead wherever home clubs deemed the court surfaces to be suitable.

The Northern District lawn bowlers appeared to have no such issues with a rain-related decision, playing on time with well-drained greens.

Bowls president Maisie Murphy said that all ND matches went ahead as far as she was aware. The secret to the bowlers’ success in regard to the weather was indeed the way that greens generally drained well, she added.

“Bowls would be the last sport to be put off because of rain,” said Murphy.

“I can only speak of the Kerang (greens, but) we’ve had a thunderstorm which has really drenched it, water lying everywhere, and within probably an hour you can play on it. It’s wonderful, really. I think a lot are like that – it’s got to be, really. You can’t let water lie on them, because you’d get diseased grass then.”

Murphy added that bowlers would seem to be a particularly hardy lot, as they happily play through rain as well, unless it’s absolutely pouring down.

“It comes back to a club as to whether their greens are open or not,” she said.

“Of course, it’s hard to say how much rain you get in one place than another.”

Most of the cricket was cancelled, including both the A grade Cohuna derby between United and Nondies, plus the Barham/Koondrook-Wandella game. Similar fates befell the B grade fixtures at Cohuna, Leitchville and Koondrook Oval, where three magpies sat on the pavilion steps to oversee nothing much in particular. Only the B grade Wandella-Kerang encounter at Riverside Park went ahead, along with an under 14 match earlier in the day.

“I can’t believe (many) would’ve played – it was pretty wet!,” said ND cricket association secretary John Arthur.

“Some of the games were still being called off at 11 o’clock.”

However, Arthur echoed Murphy’s sentiment about the fact that a diverse set of venues might also mean an equally diverse set of conditions on the day that determine whether play goes ahead or not.

“You can’t call them off too early, because the association (boundary) goes right from Gunbower to Kerang, through to Barham,” he said.

“It’s still up to individual clubs to make their call. Just because it’s raining in one area, you might not get rain in another…But in saying that, there was a lot of rain!”

Cricket matches can of course be started later than originally scheduled if enough time remains for an agreed minimum amount of overs to be completed, but when the rain is at such a significant level as on Saturday morning, it probably wouldn’t matter when the game was supposed to get under way.

And it’s not just wet outfields that can be the cause of concern – and possible cancellation – for cricketers. Turf pitches can become very muddy very quickly.

Rain is the natural enemy of cricket, a source of frustration for players and administrators alike, according to Arthur.

From paddockto speedway ( admin posted on August 21st, 2019 )

Ten year old speedway driver Adrian Lawrence is right at home behind the wheel.MOST children do not start driving until the age of 16; by then, Hazelwood North’s Adrian Lawrence will have six years’ speedway experience.
苏州美睫培训

The 10 year-old won his first junior standard saloon race at Drouin Speedway last fortnight, in just his third event since taking up the high speed sport at the minimum legal age.

Having ridden bikes since the age of three, and proven successful in motocross, Adrian made the switch to four wheels after showing driving aptitude in the family’s paddock.

“I just started to drive cars and loved it… it’s fun,” Adrian said.

“It’s good because no-one else really drives cars at that age.”

After three races in his four-speed Ford TD Cortina, which required a custom setting so Adrian’s feet could reach the pedals, the fearless youngster said he had already picked up a useful tip.

“Don’t hit the walls,” he said.

Despite the fast and furious nature of the sport, parents Darren and Kerry are anything but anxious about their son sitting behind the wheel.

“It doesn’t faze me one little bit,” Darren said.

“It’s good because I’ve seen him out here (in the paddock) and he’s racing against his dad and all his mates and I know he’s a good driver… he can drive a manual for God’s sake,” Kerry added.

Adrian finished fourth in his first race at Rosedale Speedway, and his rapid improvement has prompted the family to consider traveling for bigger events, such as the state titles in Wangaratta next year.

While the fundamentals are already sound, Adrian’s parents will face a different set of challenges to most when teaching their boy to drive on the road.

“The biggest problem there will be taking all the bad habits out of him,” Darren said.

“Speedway cars don’t have mirrors or indicators or any of that so that will be the bad one.”

Quick thinking saves shed ( admin posted on August 21st, 2019 )

THE actions of two quick-thinking residents have prevented the headquarters of one of Kerang’s volunteer organisations from being engulfed in flames.
苏州美睫培训

Kerang Fire Brigade members worked for 15 minutes to contain a fire at the Kerang Men’s Shed headquarters on Thursday night.

Personnel were alerted to the Burgoyne Street blaze by a neighbouring couple who were walking home and smelt plastic burning

“Ten minutes (later) and it (the shed) would have been gone,” Kerang Men’s Shed co-ordinator Harry Sambrooks said.

“The couple could smell plastic burning and looked at the shed and saw the double roller doors glowing orange.”

Brigade members donned breathing apparatuses to battle the fire at the Kerang Technichal High School site, containing the blaze to the shed’s workshop.

“The fire had been going for a fair while before we arrived,” Kerang Fire Brigade captain, Ramon Steel said.

“The smoke was one metre above the ground when we got there, and we had to attack the blaze aggressively in a short period of time because the oxygen (which entered the building when the shed was opened to fight the blaze) could have created an explosion.

“I am pretty proud of the boys for their efforts.”

Fire investigators, led by Cohuna Fire Brigade captain Bruce Embleton, spent Friday morning working to determine the cause of the fire.

The fire has been listed as not suspicious, but what caused the blaze to start is still inconclusive.

The blaze has destroyed benches and equipment, as well as buckling the facility’s roller doors and a main support beam that hangs above the front of the workshop.

“Electricity has been cut right through the property and all of the circuit boards have melted,” Mr Sambrooks said.

“The steel parts of tools (used by members) have survived, but the plastic handles have melted.

Of greater concern to the shed’s members is the damage to numerous projects that were left in the damaged workshop.

These included restoration works on antique items and the construction of other objects.

“It could have been a lot worse,” Mr Sambrooks said.

Men’s Shed members held a Christmas break-up event hours before the blaze, with the centre scheduled to re-open on January 8.

However, it is uncertain when members will be able to access their headquarters.

Kerang District Health, who oversaw the implementation of the program and funds the initiative, has vowed to support the replacement of much-needed equipment.

“We will be looking at the replacement of affected tools though insurance,” hospital chief executive officer, Robert Jarman said.

“Fortunately we have three weeks to get things organised before the Men’s Shed is scheduled to resume.”

ASSESS. Bruce and Ben Embleton spent Friday morning investigating the cause of a fire that damaged the Kerang Men’s Shed the night before.

Aged care park ( admin posted on August 21st, 2019 )

THE rezoning of Nancarrow Park to accommodate the future development of a transitional care facility whilst retaining community parkland has been approved.
苏州美睫培训

Planning Minister Matthew Guy approved a request earlier this month allowing Gannawarra Shire Council to rezone the property, located behind Kerang District Health’s Burgoyne Street headquarters.

The health service has been lobbying for the rezoning of the community reserve for the past seven years with plans to develop a transitional living facility for the district’s ageing population.

The shire asked My Guy in February to implement an investigation into the rezoning proposal.

An independent two-member panel, appointed by Mr Guy, spent one day in May hearing from resident and the health service regarding the rezoning of the former quarry site, bordered by Shadforth Street, the hospital and the Kerang to Swan Hill railway line, to accommodate the transitional living facility.

The panel announced in July its recommendation to support the plan, with the recommendation that up to 0.3 hectares of the north-western end of the park be retained for recreational purposes.

The panel also recommended Kerang District Health, in consultation with shire staff, redesign the aged care facility focusing on aspects such as improved solar orientation, reduced car parking and a smaller more efficient common area containing driveways, access ways, pathways and open space.

Close to 400 community responses were received by the shire during the mandatory public comment period, with 347 submissions supporting the rezoning.

Opponents of the plan focused on the community benefits of the park, as well as issues relating to traffic, drainage and site contamination.

“It will be interesting to see what happens next,” shire planning manager, David Pietsch said.

“The project is now in the hands of the hospital.”

It is anticipated the health service will seek a planning permit for the project during the second half of 2013.

“I imagine the board of management will be keen to finish the current capital project before moving onto another one,” Kerang District Health chief executive officer, Robert Jarman said.

“The current capital development project took two to three years of planning, and believe a similar time will be needed.”
