As time goes by
THE springs in the dry rivers are
running. Does that mean we might
get some rain – not showers or driz-
zle – but real rain?

weather, could it be a wet ANZAC
I caught up with resident rain-
maker and great community man,
Philip Shepherd, last week, when he
was busy “doing his bit” by cooking
a barbecue at the Balaklava races.
The sizzling sound on the barbie
reminded him of rain, but alas, it was
just wishful thinking.
Anyway, Philip knows the tale
of the springs running, with rain
ensuing, but he’s just not quite sure
of the date it will happen!
He’s confident it will rain though,
and I’m sure we are all looking
forward to that day.
Community Arts has advised
Emma Horwood’s concert, (men-
tioned in Take 5 last week), has been
postponed from April 21 until later
in the year.
• Australian Breastfeeding As-
sociation meetings will be held at
Balaklava’s Lighthouse Church
from 10am to 11.30am on the last
Thursday of the month.
But due to a clash with Anzac
Day in April, the next meeting will
be May 2. The group offers breast-
feeding support and information for
mums, and often has guest speakers.
Everyone welcome to come
along, or phone Narelle on 88633
060 for further information.
Unfortunately the Community
Arts Group has had to postpone its
“Open Mic” night originally sched-
uled for April 12. The group hopes
to hold it later in the year.
MOST people turned their
clocks back just one hour
when daylight saving finished.
A former local publican
and current editor, was very
efficient, getting out of bed
early to wind the clocks in his
home back an hour.
Not long after, his dear wife
scurried about, also winding the
clocks back an hour. They both
achieved plenty that Sunday!
TW (now to be known
as Two Wind-ups) briefly
considered leaving the clocks
that way, hopefully preventing
their often late arrival at
various functions. Then he
realised he would be at work
far too early! (Therefore, not
an option.) Did anyone else do
something silly like that? Let

Locals have taken their
“hats off” to local girl, Cai
Barefield, who has gone
“bare haired” to raise funds
for Leukaemia Foundation.
Cai, 18, had her long hair
shaved off by her sister, Al-
inta, at the Tarlee Hotel last
Saturday, and donated her
60cm long hair to make a
wig for a leukaemia victim.
Cai (pictured), raised
more than $4000, and after
she’d lost her locks, other
locals then volunteered to
lose theirs, raising another
$1500. Well done!
