Phone 5468 1054 12 November 2014 ROSIE’S RAMBLE What sort of fool waves a ﬂag in the face of a hypedup racehorse which has just run a huge race? Can he/ she be banned the same as foo"e fools are? Did you hear on the news about the fellows who stole very valuable BALES of wool? They were BAILED un"l later in the year. I am on the horns (or wings) of a dilemma. The other evening I no"ced that our resident blackbird was dar"ng in and out of the green house a lot. As I was pre#y sure that its nest was in the climbing geranium as I had heard them there, I wondered what was going on. So I sneaked over (no mean feat) and peered in, scaring the wits out of a fairly large grumpy-looking grey chick that has a long way to go before it is a black bird. Do I con"nue to water the plants in there and hope the baby gets used to me, or do I risk the life of my plants by staying away? The behaviour of the parent bird was fascina"ng. It took nearly half an hour of bird ﬂi%ng around the greenhouse pretending not to be interested in anything inside before it landed some distance away, hopped around behind pots so it was hidden from the house, then darted in to check on the chick. Clearly, as I have noted before, birds are not stupid! QUOTE of the WEEK from Senator Lambie – ‘Clive Palmer is si%ng on the fence and ﬂip-ﬂopping’. THAT is an image to conjure with!

We are both in our late ‘80s but our memories are s#ll with us. It was a very interes#ng day when Meir Khan called. (see page 10). We are enjoying the W.R., congratula#ons on the photos in colour, it was a surprise to open the envelope and see them. I could see Jean who has been my great friend for many years and the other two ladies. Well done, beau#ful colour, can’t believe this has all come together for you. ‘They say all good things come to those who wait’ and you are certainly deserving of it all. Loris Akers Vicky Frizzell’s ar#cle on the cork tree in the WR on 5 November is very true. Its beauty is only appreciated once you get under the wonderful branches which kiss the ground. To trim the tree would make it much easier to see its fabulous trunk but what would be destroyed will never be replaced and we and our children and their children will be robbed of the experience of stepping into a wonderland. They say there are fairies at the bo&om of the garden which I’m not sure of, but I could believe that they live under our cork tree. I also agree that any interven#on could very well kill this wonderful old tree. We should leave Mother Nature alone – she is doing a great job on her own. Chris AN ENJOYABLE WEEKEND Last month I took a meandering trip from Pyramid Hill to Forrest via the Golden Triangle. I stopped for morning tea at Dunolly and was struck by the friendliness and helpfulness of the locals and the feel of vibrancy about the town and having heard about Buckley’s of Dunolly, I decided to return. My mother and I enjoyed every minute of the ‘Strangers in Paradise’ recital on Saturday, then the interes#ng drive to Bealiba and lovely accommoda#on at Evans Hotel, where the hospitality was another winner for the district. The Broadway Market on Sunday capped oﬀ a beaut weekend. Thanks Dunolly and District. Jordana Langridge STRANGERS IN PARADISE Amazing events keep happening at Buckley’s in Dunolly. The latest recital was a really wonderful feast of music. Raymond Khong, Ian Cousins and May Gavin entertained the enthralled audience with excerpts from some wellknown composers, the tenor and baritone voices blending so beau#fully and with a masterly accompaniment. We were also most fortunate to hear Rachel Buckley accompanying the ar#sts in their ﬁnal rendi#on. Rachel has a beau#ful voice and we should hear it more o"en. Dunolly is so fortunate to have the opportunity to enjoy such regular entertainment. It is a shame more local people are not a&ending as the majority of audiences seem to be from Maryborough and elsewhere. Cynthia Lindsay RESIGNATIONS We were shocked to hear that Sam and Phoebe have resigned from the Dunolly Market. As new residents to Dunolly they got involved with the community and put a lot of #me and eﬀort into the market. Thank you for having a go at least you tried. Lynne and Frank Ship Moliagul Road Dunolly BYLINE FOR NOTICES I agree with Vicky Frizzell’s le&er from last week. Any published no#ce or ar#cle should be accompanied by an iden#fying by-line of the individual or the authorising commi&ee. I was confused by the no#ce calling a mee#ng at the Town Hall with no iden#fying by-line. I also agree with Vicky about the community consulta#on regarding issues such as the Cork Tree. The preliminary discussions with locals at the Neighbourhood house iden#ﬁed that there is strong local interest in protec#ng the tree and the Railway sta#on. This early stage is about gathering facts and informa#on to present to the community. We have a strong and dedicated group of ar#sts, writers and actors in this region and our aim is to share ideas and concerns. Everyone is welcome to join the Arts group and have a say – you don’t need to be a prac#cing ar#st. There was no by-line on the ar#cle on protec#ng the heritage sites of the region, but it was not our Arts group – much as we value all our historic monuments. Rachel Buckley RESPONSE - HERITAGE LISTING In response to Vicky Frizzell asking who was seeking Heritage lis#ng for the monument in Gordon Gardens. At this point there is no commi&ee set up. The photograph was taken from Dunolly & District History Facebook site where an individual was expressing an interest in preserving our historic sites and wanted to generate interest in Heritage Lis#ng. The Welcome Record Team CROWS Re Rosie’s Ramble about crows and their chicks; Rosie asked if anyone knew why we don’t see them at ground level with mum and dad. My ‘Birdo’ friend told me we don’t have crows here only ravens. I am not sure what area Rosie’s crows were in but the answer is the same – young crows and ravens are raised totally in the nest and when they ﬂedge they look exactly like mum and dad, only smaller. I hope this helps in understanding how even our bird life goes about raising their families in diﬀerent ways. Page 4 Vol 29 Iss 42 THE WELCOME RECORD DUNOLLY COMMUNITY MARKET Sadly at our last mee!ng the resigna!ons of Sam Bekhit and Phoebe McLean were tabled. Sam and Phoebe have provided enthusias!c leadership as our President and Vice President of the commi"ee. Both have a wonderful vision for the progress of Dunolly. Our commi"ee has enjoyed working with them and wish them well in the future. As a result we had the task of elec!ng new oﬃce bearers. President is Tony Mullan and Vice President is Lisa Mercer. Both were elected unanimously. The Dunolly Community Market Commi"ee welcomes any interested members. If you have any good sugges!ons as to how the market could be improved please come along or contact any of the current members. Our next mee!ng will be at 7.00 pm at the SES mee!ng room on 3 December. Our next market on 14 December will be our Christmas Market, and I have it on good authority that a gentleman in a red suit will be visi!ng. Come along and join in the fun. At this market a raﬄe will be drawn of a Christmas Hamper donated by the stall holders and the traders of the town. Tickets for the raﬄe will be $1.00 and will be on sale from now un!l the market. Proceeds of the raﬄe will be donated to the Annual Children’s Christmas Party on Sunday 21 December. The Dunolly Kindergarten are organising a cake stall for the market. Come along and support this small but hard working group in our community. The hosts for the BBQ will be the Dunolly SES. Another community group who rely on fund raising to operate. Community groups or anyone wishing to sell food must be registered with the Shire and registered on 12 November 2014 Street Traders. If you are registered in another Shire, please photocopy your cer!ﬁcate and send it to Jillian Ta"ersall at the Shire of Central Goldﬁelds. Groups who have not registered, go to see Jillian for assistance to register on Street Traders. She is very helpful. At our last market it was wonderful to see so many community members out enjoying the sunshine and the variety of stalls. This month the number of stalls was down on last month. Dunolly Community Market is deﬁnitely on contrary to informa!on distributed recently.

The same can be said of landscapes. When I ﬁrst visited Marion Da Costa’s property a few years ago, I thought the bush surrounding it was a beau"ful haven – Dunolly-dry but alive with waving grasses, sturdy trees, birds, lizards and kangaroos. I heard more about her revegeta"on work over the following years but it wasn’t un"l I read her recently published book that I really appreciated the greatness of her achievement. Titled My Place: Bare Paddock to Bush, Re-establishing Na!ve Vegeta!on in Central Victoria, The book describes the rehabilita"on process Marion has followed since purchasing her 17 acre property in 2003. Wri$en as a guide for others who would like to restore land to its na"ve state, be it part of a farm or a town backyard, Marion provides not only her own story but lots of "ps to follow and an excellent list of references. When beginning such a project, Marion recommends establishing speciﬁc points around the area from which to take an annual photo. O#en changes are so gradual as to be unno"ced unless a pictorial record is maintained to li# and inspire one when weeding becomes a knee- s"ﬀening chore. The photographs included in her book amply demonstrate the changes on Marion’s land in the past 10 years and the value of maintaining a pictorial record. Marion believes that it will be some years before she ﬁnishes her revegeta"on plans and probably 50 – 100 years before the ecosystem re-establishes itself. But as a commi$ed conserva"onist, she is ac"vely contribu"ng to the building of a healthy environment for our future genera"ons. There is much to learn from her work. Her book should be of great interest to those who know her (she is a dedicated volunteer within the community life of Dunolly); those who have embarked on similar journeys of land restora"on and, more par"cularly, those who want to avail themselves of her knowledge and experience in order to begin their own project. Copies of Marion’s book are available from www.blurb.com.au. Jean Anderson Vol 29 Iss 42 Page 5 T.P.

Peter Daly Page 6 Vol 29 Iss 42 THE WELCOME RECORD DUNOLLY BRANCH CWA th The 67 annual mee!ng of Dunolly Branch was held at the SES rooms on Wednesday 5 November. We welcomed Group President Ayron Teed; Group Secretary Rachel Mitchell, and Group Treasurer Sandra Webb to the mee!ng with pre"y posies made by Heather Weir and Rhonda Heather. We were delighted to welcome four new members to the branch. Ayron was accompanied by two visitors who spoke during the mee!ng about eﬀorts to get CWA involved in working for refugee women through the SIFFT commi"ee. Group president Ayron conducted the elec!on of Oﬃce Bearers for 2015. They are: President – Jan Wa"s; Secretary – Rosemary Mecredy; Treasurer – Leanne Mullan; Interna!onal Oﬃcer – Rhonda Heather. We then heard the Group President’s address summing up the year in the Group and the Branch Secretary’s report was also read. A%er a very tasty lunch and a deal of socialising, our visitors le% for the AGM at Newstead. At our regular mee!ng, sugges!ons were put forward for items for the monthly mee!ng and also for ideas for cra% days etc. The winners of the compe!!ons for 2014 were: Flower from your garden – Heather Weir Interes!ng item – Rosemary Mecredy. We are very glad to have Rhonda back looking hale and hearty. Since the mee!ng Lorraine has been in hospital. We do hope she will be well and home before long. Anyone who would like to join us in CWA will ﬁnd us at the RSL hall on Wednesday 3 December at 11.00am followed by our Christmas Break-up at the Golden Grain Café on Broadway at 12ish. We have all been saddened by the death of Ann Stevenson. She joined CWA Vic in 1939 in the Mallee and was s!ll a member at Dunolly when she died – a total of 75 years. We will remember a happy lady with a lovely laugh – who could make a mean slice. R Mecredy, Publicity BIG WATER LITTLE PLAIN On a picturesque sec!on of the Avoca River lies a sca"er of houses. A sign says that you are in Na"e Yallock ‘Big Water Li"le Plain.’ The sign says it all really. The football ground though very dry, looked great. There is a new sec!on added to the clubrooms, and the grounds are well maintained. Do"ed around the recrea!on reserve are wonderful shade trees. We parked under an enormous grey box and Marion fell in love immediately. She declared it had the biggest girth 12 November 2014 she had ever seen on a grey box. Further on, half hidden by the leaves on a branch of a red gum were some very ﬂuﬀy looking corellas, leading us to think they were this year's babies. Near the entrance to the recrea!on reserve is the Na"e Yallock hall which looks in good repair. There is also a plaque commemora!ng 150 years of white se"lement in the area. The ﬁrst se"ler was Mervyn Archdale in 1841. It is not possible to get down to the water at this point, but a beau!ful cool breeze was blowing up the river. Marion iden!ﬁed the call of a cuckoo while we stood on the river bank enjoying the breeze. Across the road a deligh)ul old building beckoned. It is now a shed with original roof shingles showing through. In a former life it must have been a very appealing church. Around the corner another old church has been converted into a home. Nearby is the war memorial. A quick count showed twenty-six people enlisted from this area for the 1914-18 war. That is a lot from such a small community. The undoubted jewel in Na"e Yallock's crown is the beau!ful surrounds of the primary school. Many genera!ons of parents have worked hard to provide the many shady areas for children to play, and families to use when a"ending school func!ons. Someone has even constructed a miniature old slab hut. Never having looked around Na"e Yallock before I was amazed at how pre"y the li"le community is. The community spirit is obvious in the well maintained school and recrea!on reserve. It was a pleasure to spend !me there. Vicky Frizzell SHOP NEWS Thanks to Jenny for her dona!ons of wool and fabric. They are always popular items. New in are cards, hand towels and kids embroidered towels.

Vicky Frizzell 12 November 2014 THE WELCOME RECORD TO CROW OR NOT TO CROW Our big girls who free range out the back paddocks have been without a rooster for a few months now, but there’s been some crowing out there lately! What is going on? They have been laying well, and I can pre"y much tell whose eggs are whose. I know who the two Araucanas are – their eggs are a pre"y pale blue colour; the two Light Sussex are – their eggs are a pale pinky colour with white speckles; the two Light Sussex cross Barnevelder are – their eggs are dark brown; but the four Barnevelder girls – their eggs being diﬀerent shades of brown with darker speckles, have not been as regular and I’m not sure if they are all laying as there has not been four eggs on the one day. When I was out there the other day checking for eggs, a Barnie hen that was close by started crowing. I went over to her and watched, she kept crowing, stretching out her neck as she ‘cock-a-doed’ (as apposed to ‘cock -a-doodle-dooing’). I’m sure she was saying, ‘I’m a rooster, and I don’t lay eggs.’ So I told her, ‘I know you’re not a rooster, now stop that crowing and go lay an egg!’ She stopped, looked at me, hung her head and walked oﬀ. At least I know which one it is now, the one with the bigger wa"les and comb, and I know she’s a hen as she has laid eggs before. Now this was a real a"empt at crowing, not an ‘I’ve just laid an egg’ song, so I googled ‘crowing hens’ and although some of the posts said it was quite rare, going by all the comments it doesn’t seem to be that rare at all. Condensing the comments down here is what I found. – Most (but not all) crowing hens come from an all girl ﬂock and tend to become the leader and protector of the group. - Most (but not all) are older hens. - Most (but not all) s%ll lay eggs. - Some said that they can even change sex and could poten%ally produce viable sperm. - One ques%oned the ‘playing around with breeding so much’ that we are ge&ng gender-confused chickens. - One suggested that maybe the crowing hens have a tumor or damaged ovaries. Some of the remedies were – Wait it out for a moult, the hormonal change that goes with moul%ng helps to correct it. - Give her away to live with a ﬂock of bigger or just diﬀerent chooks so she’s not top hen. - Get a ‘real’ rooster. Now this is not a new thing, as some talked of hearing their grand parents talk about having crowing hens, a Vol 29 Iss 42 Page 7 few even telling of a rhyme that they use to say, ‘A whistling rooster and a crowing hen, never come to no good end.’ Has anyone else encountered a ‘manly’ hen? If so, then unless you or your neighbors don’t like listening to the crowing or you’re not allowed crowing birds where you live, I think just leave her be. She may just ‘keep the peace’ in the ﬂock and protect the other hens as well as maybe giving you a few eggs. Think of her as your ‘claytons’ rooster – the rooster you have when you don’t have a rooster. I’ll let you know if she is or when she starts laying again, but in the mean%me; I don’t mine a bit of cock-a-doodle-dooing. Peace, love and happiness from Sankalpa Our slightly confused Barnevelder hen with her bigger than usual wa•les and comb.

He had to go to Melbourne to buy all his goods from Payne’s big store in Bourke St., where our Dad had a brother who worked in the store and he introduced Meir Khan to Uncle Roy, who always helped him get his supplies together and they were then sent to Dunolly by rail. Mum bought many yards of material from his wagon, to make our clothes. It had drop-down sides, secured by chains, so the materials could be measured. She also bought unbleached calico that had to be washed many !mes before she made it into sheets and pillow slips. At that !me, my sister Beryl and I had branched into the work force and we were able to buy our ﬁrst fullylined woollen top coats. Beryl had a lovely green checked one and mine was blue; we paid ﬁ#een pounds each for them. Our late sister, Joan, had a nice pink candlewick dressing gown which she gave to my daughter Jill and she s!ll has the gown. In the other end of the wagon he had boots and men’s working clothes, and a few groceries and plenty of spices, especially curry powders. He was a nice gentleman and he told our Dad that when he got to a certain age, he must return to India, because he didn’t want to die in Australia. Loris Akers and Beryl Barker 12 November 2014 ST JOHN’S ANGLICAN CHURCH Celebra!ng 145 Years in Dunolly. First Permanent Minister. Rev G P Despard was appointed in September 1863 and conducted his ﬁrst service on 18 October, 1863. On his arrival with his wife and four children, there was only the school building on the land. Rev. Despard galvanised the Church members into fundraising and a Parsonage was erected by June 1865. Also during his !me at Dunolly a brick church was erected at Eddington and the commencement of the present day St John’s at Dunolly. In 1868 Rev Despard transferred to St Paul’s, Bendigo. Parsonage: Fundraising commenced in 1864 and sketches for the proposed Parsonage were submi#ed to the architects. Tenders were let in October 1864 and the building completed in June 1865. A single storey house with a slate roof was erected including a cellar, seven feet deep under the servants’ quarters, entered by a trapdoor through the pantry. An underground tank was installed in April 1866 and stables were also added to the building by November 1876. As the Parish Centre moved to Maryborough, the building was sold and is owned privately. The present owners have restored the building and grounds. During the 1960s a modern four bedroom weatherboard house was built on land in front of the original vicarage. This building was also sold when the Church was temporarily closed in the early 1980s and has since been moved to the corner of Raglan Street and Broadway.

The theme this month was ‘Strangers in Paradise’, a tribute to musicals. The wonderful talents of tenor Raymond Khong, baritone Ian Cousins and pianist May Gavin came together to delight the audience in the now famous Melba Room. This deligh!ul room, lovingly restored by Rachel Buckley, has been the venue for some wonderful performances over the past months, but, to my mind, this produc"on was the best. Perhaps it was because the songs were so familiar from many musicals such as Strangers in Paradise; Kismet; My Fair Lady; The Desert Song; South Paciﬁc; The Student Prince, Naughty Marie$a, to name but a few. The voices of the two men blended together so beau"fully in the duets. Each voice has its own special "mbre and quality, and each man alone sang splendidly, but when combined, the two voices formed such a wonderful unique sound that it transported me to the stage and it was as if I were there with all the colour and movement of the show unfolding before me. Two outstanding moments, for me, were Bring Him Home from Les Misérables by Raymond Khong - the emo"on he portrayed brought tears to my eyes, literally; and Music of the Night from Phantom of the Opera by Ian Cousins. When he sang the ﬁnal high note I felt a shiver down my spine. There was a li$le comedic dialogue interspersed amongst the music, including some good natured ribbing between the men, but it was May Gavin who generated the most laughter with her recital of how to give a cat a pill. For anyone who has ever tried to administer medicine to a cat, you’ll relate to this. May then went on to brilliantly play a piece about a cat and mouse. Although there was li$le melody, the quick lil"ng high notes and the more sinister low notes really made you see a cat chasing a mouse in your mind’s eye. Later May again regaled us, this "me with a 1950s look at what a housewife should do to prepare for her husband coming home. We then heard the modern day version. The men cheered for one, and the women cheered for the other. I’ll let you guess which was which. May then gave a most s"rring rendi"on of Warsaw Concerto. A brilliantly executed piece. The a%ernoon ﬁnished with a%ernoon tea and a lovely chat with the cast, and members of the audience who expressed their delight at such a wonderful a%ernoon.

ANNUAL REPORT Our Christmas Breakup was held at the Club in December and was well a!ended and enjoyed by Club members and their families. February saw us run a Double Chance Show, which was run quite successfully with a good a!endance with high standard horses and riders. Cathy Simmons won the Flamingo Memorial Supreme Champion Ridden Mount sponsored by Rebecca Ingle. In March we had an ATHRA ride to the Old Lead Reservoir. It was a very warm day and horses and riders enjoyed a paddle in the Res. The Cross Country Course was worked on right up un"l end of March with jumps to be ﬁnished oﬀ and rocks to be picked up so as to be ready for accredita"on that was achieved in readiness for our Inaugural Horse Trials. The course was oﬃcially closed one month before the event. On 3 and 4 May we held our Inaugural Horse Trials with a Grand Opening Celebra"on. Local Dignitaries, Sponsors, HRCAV Execu"ve and Members were invited with Cr Barry Rinaldi, Mayor of Central Goldﬁelds Shire, cu&ng the ribbon. It was a very successful day and enjoyed by all with many travelling long distances to compete. It was a credit to our members who worked hard to build extra yards and to conduct and cater for such a big event. We had one team represent us at TTT Horse Trials at Yarrambat on 17 and 18 May. On the 25 May the Club celebrated its 30th Birthday on a Rally Day that was a Fiona Dearing Dressage Clinic. We enjoyed a spit roast and the Champagne ﬂowed. There was a lot of memorabilia on display to bring back memories. In June we ran our annual Showjumping Compe""on, a great event. Timmy Memorial AM7 was won by Brendan Slade and sponsored by Karen and Wayne Stephens. The Showjumping arena was improved with work done by Doran’s but it s"ll needs a base for draining. Many of our dedicated members helped with the catering for the Car Rally held in July which was proﬁtable but a lot of hard work. On 31 August we ran a Naviga"on Ride at Bealiba with Dunolly Horse Ac"vity Club members Michelle Amalﬁ and Aileen Marshall winning the oﬃcial event. Riders enjoyed a new trail and venue thanks to Bealiba Pony Club. A lovely ATHRA weekend was enjoyed at John Brady’s property at Enﬁeld in September. It is a great venue, thanks to John for opening his facility to us and Andrea and Arnold for organising this. In TTT Showjumping Dunolly Horse Ac"vity Club was represented at Werribee by two teams and some individual placings were gained by DHAC riders. Dunolly Horse Ac"vity Club has a team entered for TTT Vol 29 Iss 42 Page 15 Naviga"on Ride at Willowmavin in October and a team in TTT Dressage at Werribee in November. We wish them luck. We have a great, hardworking bunch of members who we couldn’t run the club without; they are the execu"ves and helpers at events and working bees. We have achieved so much over the past 12 months. Our biggest challenge for 2013/14 was the comple"on of the Cross Country Course by December 2013, which we achieved on "me and with the small budget excess being met by the club. It was a magniﬁcent eﬀort by dedicated club members who contributed many, many hours of inkind labour under the exper"se of course builder Mick Pineo. We are so lucky to have a great ground, good facili"es, dedicated members and awesome horses. I hope the next 30 years will be just as great. Sonya Richards Stuart, President Dunolly Horse Ac"vity Club Inc 2013/14. FREE PROGRAM FOR CANCER SUFFERERS Cancer Council Victoria and Maryborough District Health Service encourage people aﬀected by cancer, including family and friends, to a"end a free two half day ‘Living with Cancer’ program commencing 14 November 2014.

They were among more than 375,000 entries submi'ed worldwide in the 27th annual Lions Interna!onal Peace Poster Contest. Lions Clubs Interna!onal is sponsoring the contest to emphasize the importance of world peace to young people everywhere.

The judging was held on 22 October, 2014 at the Central Goldﬁelds Art Gallery at Maryborough. Maryborough Lions Club President Ray Parker, said he was impressed by the expression and crea!vity of the students at the three local schools’ entries. ‘It is obvious that these young people have strong ideas about what peace means to them. I’m so proud that we were able to provide them with the opportunity to share their visions’. ‘The winning posters will advance to face s!ﬀ compe!!on through the district, mul!ple district and interna!onal rounds of compe!!on if they are to be declared the interna!onal grand prize winner’, President Ray said.
