Division 1 Seniors Football
Wandin 10.7.67 d Emerald 6.18.54
Wandin share top spot but are fourth on percentage after a win over Emerald. Emerald were chasing tail all day as Wandin got off to a handy start but only had a slim lead of three points at quarter time. They kicked away in the second, with 6 goals to 1, and went into the main break 32 points up. Emerald won the third quarter, kicking 3.1 to 1.5, but the margin was still 20 points. Emerald peppered the goals in the last with 1.7 to 1 goal straight and really should have had the game won, but wastefulness in front of goal cost them in the end.
Wandin Best: S. Wettenhall (3 goals), B. Harvey (1 goal), T. Leech-Hines, P. Hodgett, P. Bruzzese, J. Byrne
Emerald Best: D. Edwards, S. Semmens (1 goal), J. Rich (1 goal), B. Wood, A. Quirk (1 goal), N. Jansen (2 goals)
Healesville 10.17.77 d Upwey-Tecoma 6.4.40

Upwey won the second quarter, just, and reduced the margin at the main break to 13 points. Healesville turned on the burners a bit in the third, kicking 4.2 to 1.1 and the margin was now looking tough for Upwey. Healesville peppered the goals in the last, but accuracy plagued them, and they were still able to come away with the win by 37 points.
Healesville Best: J. Nugent, L. Daly, J. Roe-Duggan (2 goals), D. Plozza, A. Fraraccio, B. Murphy

They were a bit wasteful in front of goal in the first, but had a lead of 22 points at quarter time. They increased that lead to 37 points at half-time. A big 7-goal to 1 third quarter, as heavy fog set in, and the margin had blown out to 73 points which was well out of reach for Warburton. A final 5.5 to 1 behind and the final siren was Warburton’s friend at the end of the day.

Mount Evelyn could only manage 3 behinds in the third to Woori’s 4.9 and it was all over. It was goal for goal in the last but to no avail for the Mounters.

Yarra Junction 17.7.109 d Yarra Glen 8.10.58
In what some would say was the major upset of the day was the awesome effort made by Yarra Junction to inflict Yarra Glen’s first defeat of the season and drop them to second on the ladder albeit by percentage. Yarra Junction kicked 6 goals to 2 in the first and went into the second quarter with a 25-point lead. Both teams tightened things up in the second and only kicked 2 each so it was still game on at half time. Yarra Junction kicked 5.1 to a wasteful Yarra Glen’s 4.5 to be up by 25 points at the last change. Yarra Glen was still in with a show until the Eagles outclassed and outplayed them holding them scoreless in the last but still managed to kick 4.2 themselves.
Yarra Junction Best: C. Hoare, D. Brookes, J. Welch, T. Boxell (4 goals), B. Clark (2 goals), T. Fennell
Yarra Glen Best: A. Smith (2 goals), T. Russell, B. Binion, B. Ashton (1 goal), C. Tait, G. Filsell (1 goal)

Up-and-coming South Belgrave executive producer, Lachlan Nash, has helped to secure a second season for his show, ‘The Modern Middle East’.
What started out as a collaboration between friends has grown into a unique, well-received project, with the first season gaining unexpectedly high ratings.
Nash said he never anticipated such a positive response, or the breadth of potential topics.
“We’ve only just began to touch the surface of what we’d like to cover,” he said.
“Our ultimate aim is to help foster a more positive image of the Middle East. Yes, there are conflicts – but a lot of people are doing good in the region, too. Then, there is the significant history.”
‘The Modern Middle East’, which is presented by Nash’s friend Gemma Neary, reports on everything from escalating protests and diplomatic blockades, to the discovery of ancient artefacts in Egypt.
The first series aired weekly on Channel 31 in 2017, with an average of 10,000-40,000 viewers an episode.
Season 2 is scheduled to broadcast Australia-wide on Foxtel’s Aurora channel on 6.30pm Thursday nights, from 12 July to 27 September.
The second season intends to increase the production scale and further engage audiences, through in-depth analysis and guest interviews.
Nash said the project has evolved organically and was created simply through pursuing his own interests.
“I’ve always had a keen interest in politics and world affairs. But I’ve also been involved in theatre in various roles, including writing, set-design and performing,” he said.
“It felt like a natural fit. The show highlights news, offers editorial slots and a chance to interview people on many relevant topics, such as religion, resource politics and power-plays.”
Nash said the show was important, because he wants to impart knowledge and inspire younger generations.
In an effort to further the show, the team have set up a crowd-funding campaign.
The funds will go towards three of the production’s most significant expenses: studio hire, catering for the crew and broadcast fees.

Dandenong Ranges Music Council (DRMC) has announced an exciting program for 2018, with some major community music projects in the works.
Ensembles are expected to resume in early February, with the feature music projects aimed at community wellbeing and wider education.
DRMC member Ray Yates said there was an air of excitement over 2018.
“The DRMC is looking forward to a fantastic year of music-making, with new projects such as ‘Forgotten Heroes’ and ‘The Dutchies of the Dandenongs’,” he said.
“All the orchestras, bands and choirs have begun rehearsals and are gearing up for a great year of music-making for all ages and abilities.”
Among the bigger projects includes ‘Forgotten Heroes – Vietnam Veterans’, which aims to engage Vietnam Veterans and their families.
Planned activities will explore and assist with the wellbeing and validation of the veterans’ experiences, and culminates in an event showcasing the music of the era and a new song expressing thoughts and feelings of present-day vets.
The DRMC is asking for assistance to locate veterans and their families.
Enquiries to Cath Russell at email@example.com.
Meanwhile, the DRMC will be holding ‘Penny Drive’, a project that combines history and music to tell the story of the fundraising campaign by Victorian children after World War I.
The campaign helped to build a school at Villers-Bretonneux in France.
The DRMC will also work with the Dutch community in the project, ‘Dutchies of the Dandenongs’.
The project aims to tell stories through music about the journey after World War II, with settlements aplenty in the Dandenong Ranges.
Community members of Dutch decent can register their interest to play a part.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact (03) 9754 6566.

Celebrating winter is one of the things Warburton does best and The River of Light Winter Festival is just one of the events that gets locals stepping away from the fireside to enjoy the season.
Local events team Bear and Moon Productions is presenting The River of Light Winter Festival 2018 for Warburton and all the Upper Yarra community on Saturday, 4 August at the Arts Centre Warburton and along the Yarra River from 5pm.
Aimed at showcasing both the beauty of Warburton itself, as well as celebrating local community, local businesses, producers and growers, the free family-friendly event will be a hub of heart-warming winter activity!
Organisers Sam Watson and PheobeMoon launched the festival last year and have been busy at community workshops creating wonderful lanterns for the walk.
The festival will start this year with the seasonal community dinner and live music before heading down to the Yarra River for the walk.
“This year we’ll have the dinner in the hall first and lantern walk will come later,” Sam said.
“It will be a bit darker and the lanterns can really shine, and then we’ll head back to the hall for desert and tea and more live music.”
Sam said that the generous support of Bendigo Community Bank Warburton and Yarra Junction, along with Yarra Ranges Council, meant the festival was a free community event and there was an open invitation to all members of the Upper Yarra and Yarra Ranges communities to join in the wonderful winter-warming happenings.
To make the most of the festival, remember to rug up (really rug up) because magical as it is in Warburton in winter, it’s best enjoyed at this time of the year with warm hands, warm feet and, of course, a warm heart!

After a number of years hosting the Biggest Morning Tea to raise funds for cancer research, Lorraine Dunbar felt she needed a change.
“It came out of the blue. I woke up one morning with the idea to have a tea cosy competition,” she explained.
“I just thought, that’s a good idea,” and with the Tea Cosy Exhibition and Competition now in its fifth year at Warratina Lavender Farm in Wandin, it’s certainly turned out to be an excellent idea!
Lorraine is a keen knitter, and although she had never knitted a tea cosy, she had lots of crafty friends more than willing to put their hands and minds to creating quirky, pretty, cute, functional, themed and some quite strange tea cosies.
Annemarie Manders from the Lavender Farm didn’t hesitate to provide a home for the competition and the rest is a cosy little bit of history, as they say!
Lorraine said whatever was needed, the answer was always ‘yes’.
“People just joined in; they just helped. It seemed like it was being scripted from above,” she said reflecting on the reason she is so passionate about supporting cancer research – the loss of a husband and daughter to cancer.
So making tea cosies is one thing – and entries come in from overseas and around Australia for the competition – but who buys them?
According to Lorraine, lots of people and all sorts of people.
Essentially the job of the tea cosy is to keep the tea pot nice and hot, but it’s the fantastic variety and the fabulous makers that make the exhibition such a success and such fun.
The core group of around a dozen ladies meets every week.
“They’re just lovely, caring people with positive attitudes who just want to do stuff,” Lorraine says.
“There’s a buzz in the shed, a beautiful, happy noise that’s really amazing.”
Others, including local Country Women’s Association members have come on board with a range of handmade items which are sold in the gift shed, adding a bit of variety.
The 5th Annual Tea Cosy and Exhibition is open until 22 July, between 10am and 4pm. Entry by gold coin donation.
Warratina Lavender Farm is at 105 Quayle Road, Wandin Yallock. Phone 5964 4650.
Warm Up Ya Wiggle and Boogie for Bali is a fabulous invitation in the middle of winter, but there’s a whole lot more behind it.
Friends Liz Cadzow and Miranda Wills are part of a group of Healesville women heading for Bali on an annual retreat organised by movement therapist Michelle Redman.
Michelle puts together the retreats which Liz said takes participants on a wonderful, mindful journey through Yin Yoga, Qi gong and meditation.
“In addition to this, her philosophy is to give back to the community that the retreat is held in,” Liz said.
Participants are asked to raise funds for the communities in which the retreats are held and this year the money will be donated through the Gaia Foundation to support two Balinese schools
The Tejakula Scholarship Program will help students from poor families continue their education, providing greater potential to go on to further study while Kutuh School will receive assistance with nutritious foods.
“We receive so much when go to these third world countries and I believe we should be giving back to the communities we visit,” Michelle said.
Over the past four years the retreats have raised over $30,000 supporting clean water for villages, building a house, building wheel chairs for landmine survivors and putting money into schools.
“The focus this time on keeping girls in schools. We stay a week, we don’t get overly involved, the communities direct us,” she said.
Liz and Miranda’s Warm Up Ya Wiggle and Boogie for Bali is part of the 2018 fundraising effort and a fun way that the wider community can help achieve those goals.
There will be some great bluesy grooves from local band The Dustmen and tunes to get you moving on the dance floor from DJ Lex on Dex.
Thanks to the support of local businesses, there will also be lots of opportunities to win fabulous raffle prizes.
Warm Up Ya Wiggle and Boogie for Bali is on at the Healesville Scout Hall on Saturday, 28 July, with doors open at 7pm. Tickets are $20 through TryBooking https://www.trybooking.com/book/event?eid=401635&
or $22 at the door on the night.
